Rise of the German Pirate Party

2011-09-08 12:32:38        Posted by: ragaman7        Category: Digital Rights

[from Cory Doctorow,] Germany's Pirate Party is kicking major electoral ass, holding 50 local elected offices across the country, and are now poised to win their first federal electoral contests:

“We are delighted that our demands for more transparency, participation and democracy for the people of Berlin are shared by the public. The Berlin people want change, and they recognize that a vote for the Pirate Party is not wasted,” Pirate Party’s Gerhard Anger said. “With this poll result we are not in the state parliament yet. However, it is an important step in the right direction. We have to work hard in the next four weeks. In order to see the results of this poll reflected in actual votes on election day, we still have to keep on going,” Anger adds.

Previously the German Pirate Party already held a seat in the national parliament when Jörg Tauss left the Social Democrats to join the pirates. However, having people voted into parliament through an election would be an even bigger accomplishment.    UPDATE

Sonic Outlaws - Craig Baldwin

2011-01-31 07:02:28        Posted by: ragaman7        Category: Remix Culture


Within days after the release of Negativland's clever parody of U2 and Casey Kasem, recording industry giant Island Records descended upon the band with a battery of lawyers intent on erasing the piece from the history of rock music. Craig "Tribulation 99" Baldwin follows this and other intellectual property controversies across the contemporary arts scene. Playful and ironic, his cut-and-paste collage-essay surveys the prospects for an "electronic folk culture" in the midst of an increasingly commodified corporate media landscape.    UPDATE

Top 10 Found Footage Horror Films

2011-01-28 01:14:55        Posted by: ragaman7        Category: Remix Culture

When “The Blair Witch Project” was a box office smash in the summer of 1999, people braced themselves for a slew of imitators. But it wasn’t until recently that Found Footage as a sub-genre of horror has really started to mature and become respectable as more than just a collection of “Blair Witch” knockoffs. Like its cousin the mockumentary, Found Footage Horror uses filmic techniques associated with non-fiction filmmaking to tell a fictional story that feels more believable or realistic. In most cases, the film is purportedly edited from the recovered footage of characters who are missing or dead.    UPDATE
