LULZSUNK

We’re 21: now legal to be boozed up and be date raped!  Ryan complains (I hope you’re seated) and proposes a Nerd Aristocracy a day.  How hackers are to nerds as the mafia is to Italians: Lulzsec; a brief history from HBGary Federal, Anonymous, hacking the Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA), the arrest of Ryan Cleary  and the latest hijinks (as of our recording, ‘natch).  Facebook stalking vs. e-mail hacking.  Jonathan brings up FaceBook stalking isn’t what its cracked up to be as everyone is just trying to show off for each other.  Friend of the show Jesse Meriwether catches a break: new gig!  The fellows review Jon Stewart’s interview with former New Orleans Mayor, Ray C. Nagin.  D.J. Andyredrum plays by the time this podcast hits the web, and man was it awesome!  R.I.P. Clarence Clemons, long time horn man and Obi-Wan for The Boss.  Legendary blues guitarist visits the ms gulf coast, and all he got was this lousy amputation.  Amy Winehouse gives her career an amputation in Belgrade-arus-grandé?  Jonathan reviews the Green Lantern, spoiler free and biliously honest.  This bleeds into discussion about when modern CG can kill basic, classic story telling.  The guys preview the new Conan the Barbarian movie based off of the trailer; Ryan attacks the laziness of filmmaking theseadays with shots and filmmaking techniques that are becoming cliche and the adoption of a too polished look (in an obviously phony way) that detracts from the whole of the story.  Jonathan defends the popcorn movie for popcorn movie’s sake.  Spoiler: Spider Man is to die!  OMG!  WTF?  Jonathan breaks some disturbing news.  Read the link below for the full scoop: their is a save as it appears it is some alternative universe series: ‘Ultimate Comics Spider-Man’ vs. the ‘Amazing Spider Man’ where he will continue slinging on.

Random computer things with Ryan: custom domain names, ICANN approves new ‘dots’ like .com, .net; now with more confusion!  Their will now be .ritzcrackers, .nerdaristocracy (hopefully), etc.  Ryan takes us through what awaits ahead.  Somehow the guys spin off on the innate laziness of people who don’t care about issues unless it effects the price of their Budweiser or ‘Deal or No Deal’ schedule.  ‘My Big Fat Greek Deficit’, Jonathan updates us on trouble in Greece’s economy.

Marc Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks is no scab, tips big for a $110000 bar tab after teams wins big.  Jonathan streaming on IMDB (link below)!  Apple wins broad sweeping patent covering virtually all multitouch featured on modern touch-based devices.  Revolution to digital photography: new tech allows you to focus your pictures after you take a picture: Lytro has the answer in light-field technology.  Jonathan is stalked by marketing and the haunting, haunting thing that is Kreayshawn.
