Feds shut down online piracy sites

Today, the feds cracked down and shut off nine illegal piracy sites that were streaming movies and television shows for their members. It’s part of a strategy unveiled by US President Obama last week  to curb global online piracy. Targeting illegal websites seemed to be the first logical step in this approach.

Amongst some of those sites included TVShack.net, PlanetMoviez.com, and a personal favourite, Ninjavideo.net. Many of these sites were providing bootlegs of “Toy Story 3” and other films just hours after their first screenings in cinemas.

I’m fairly certain that Ninjavideo and Ninjavideo BETA were by far the most clever sites I’ve used. It wouldn’t matter if you just missed something on television, because it would have been already uploaded– in 720p quality–ready for your viewing.

Looks like Surf The Channel is down too, which sucks for me because I haven’t yet watched the latest installment of True Blood. Shucks.

Lady Gaga + Ace of Base Mashup = same song.

I’m so glad someone made a mash up of this. It’s uncanny!

It’s very clear that “Don’t Turn Around” and “Alejandro” are the same song. At least, the same pop formula.

Thanks to jproc911 for making this, it’s perfect.

Trentemoller Releases Video for “Sycamore Feeling”

He’s #1 on my playlists these days.

Listen to the music of Anders Trentemoller, a Danish electronic musician who blurs the lines between chillout trip hop and dark, throbbing industrial production.

This is “Sycamore Feeling,” the single from his forthcoming third full-length, Into the Great Wide Yonder, which is set to be released in June by Audiomatique Records.
