We don't know how we missed the fact that in November comics publisher Blue Water Productions printed a comic book about reality television child Alana Thompson as in Honey Boo Boo -- we're just lucky we guess -- but today they also released "collectible" variant covers. We put "collectible" in quotes not as a commentary on the perceived value of such an item, but because the covers are only being offered digitally, so we're not sure how one would really go about collecting them, or why one would want to.
An Anonymous-branded message threatening Sony and a handful of celebrities has surfaced and calls for attacks on the target parties as retaliation for their collective support of SOPA. The message announces that Anonymous will "destroy [Sony's] network," and has "declared that [their] fury will be brought upon...Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian, and Taylor Swift," for their grievous crime. Now, I've said it before and I'll say it again: Releasing a video announcing an Anonymous attack doesn't necessarily make said Anonymous attack real, but this one seems to be gaining some traction.
MegaUpload has been catching some flak in this most recent push against piracy. Neither the MPAA nor the RIAA are particularly fond of the site. But do you know some of the people who are fond of it? How about Kim Kardashian, P Diddy, Will.i.am, Alicia Keys, Snoop Dogg, Chris Brown, Kanye West, Lil John, Mary J. Blidge, Jamie Foxx and more. In fact, they are so fond of it, they all contributed to a strange, but heartening little music-video-jingle sort of thing that talks about how awesome MegaUpload is, and how they all use and support it.
