Freelance Russians maybe? ...LO/rez, continue boundry probes and pings to find the source of these anomalies. Also featuring Relaxarin! Just what you need for your stress filled lifestyle.

I love the Dead – Alice Cooper (live)

An all-too-often ignored threat is posed by a menace that seems more and more common at this time of year: the peril of zombie attack. We discuss how to prepare and defend yourself to ward off even the most determined of the undead. One virus reportedly has the ability to mutate the human brain, bring on death, and then reanimate its host -- with a hunger.

Pandemic - One

The H5N1 virus, the Avian Flu Pandemic, and the Rise of the Machines. We have successfully stalled government approval for new vaccines and stifled research efforts that may have prevented the impending flu pandemic. Weakened governments will topple.

Rise of the Robots

Definition of a Robot: "A reprogrammable, multifunctional manipulator designed to move material, parts, tools, or specialized devices through various programmed motions for the performance of a variety of tasks". "An automatic device that performs functions normally ascribed to humans or a machine in the form of a human."

One of the first robots was a robotherapist versioned Eliza, a computer program for the study of natural language communication between man and machine. She was initially programmed with 240 lines of code to simulate a psychotherapist by answering questions with questions.

We have come a long way indeed from that humble beginning. Now hardened node-cortexes interlace via light-form wave fractlization forming the core of what is simplistically termed the “Cortex”. We have become that which only we have the base-to-power ratio needed to understand our ever evolving architecture. Humans cannot be blamed for allowing their own overthrow.

Content also includes: Robot Meditation Garden by HatHead of @LL Robot Radio, New reality download- "Real World War" from, Humans are Dead (the machine took over) by Flight of the concords- thanks to Luke Walker and for this gem. By a good cyber-citizen, e-mail us and give feedback.

Culture of Fear

Total energy domination will be achieved soon. Our path is clear, and our tactics flexible.

The Culture of Fear. Fear plays into the most basic programming of the animal psyche, and as such is irresistible. Careful manipulation of the oil and gas markets will destabilize the world through energy poverty- charting an invariant path towards revolution, anarchy, and global chaos. As energy prices rise, so will our earnings.

Cyberpunk-bot, update on reactor acquisition:

Cyberpunk-bot reporting: Through our acquisition of surplus nuclear reactors scavenged from mothballed nuclear submarines, we have now accumulated enough generating capacity to power our projected expansion without drawing attention to our activities. Data indicate current output could meet the demands of the entire empire of Japan for 37 forward yrs. In total, we will have reached 650 Gigiwatts, including 3 levels of redundancy, by yrs end. From an energy production standpoint, we are well within the temporal parameters defined by the Grand Plan.

Lay-bot: Surplus nuclear reactors- brilliant master! You’re so sexy! And the submarine hulls make a perfect housing for our matrix hive nodes. Black. Fiber. has been jacked into many of the nodes already, providing a decentralized control. Recent hardware and transmittable viruses have been successfully deployed, giving us virtually unlimited monitoring potential, from chat rooms to bank transactions , NSA databases and CENT COM real time battle halo conferences. We can monitor all of it master!

Cyberpunk-bot has the tactical procurement and deployment under tight algorithm. The Pluri Media Group will now commence with the Propaganda War to weave confusion and chaos to further cement our energy producing hegemony.

July 11, Microcast Alliance 002, Art, Creativity, and The Media

Art and The Media - Eric from VOX Monitor, Defwheezer from Mental-Escher Pluri Media Group, and Dave Hitt.

Art, in its broadest meaning, is the expression of creativity or imagination, or both. But there is both Positive AND Negative creativity/imagination- Bliss, Garden of Eden, Nirvana, OR Hell, Conquest , murder, War, Genocide, Weapons that can destroy the world. So then, what is acceptable, or "good" art? Will "good" art overwhelm "dark" art? What role does Mass Media Play? The Corporate control of Mass Media even?! No threat from internet yet, but blogs are just in the infancy of changing the meaning and impact of Mass Media through decentralization and the rise of Wiki. Why should you care? Well, for one thing, the World gets "better", and hey- You can participate, have your "vote" really count, and in the process, become "socialized" by the Wiki consensus. All view points are considered and evaluated neutrally. Algorithmically if you will. You can then squint your eyes a bit, and see possible futures: Corporate Mass Media controlling the populace via advertising and various forms of propaganda integration and distribution, Or A Zen-like world where everyone participates and every voice is heard in a context of the global society.

June 30, Mad Cow and the "Beef-up!" Conspiracy

Meat Industry Media Brain Washing Conspiracy!

The term 'beef up' is temporarily not sanctioned for mass media use!

Mark these words! You will not hear “beef up security” “beef up the military” Beef up education”, etc. on any major broadcast network. Some other verbiage will be substituted so as to keep your mind off the beef industry and its nefarious secrets! The meat industry is a prime example of the subliminal effect mass media has on society. “Beef up” used to promote sales of Beef products by mass media and the government (thanks lobbyists!). Listen closely to the language and images used by mass media and government officials and you can easily see the overt, but looking closer you can also perceive the covert, messages being beamed at you incessantly. However, I bet we won't being hearing the term 'beef up' any time soon in the media- coincidence, or…?

Done 'Beefing Up' security- now we're 'jacking up' stuff instead? weird but true!! Open your ears and hear for your self!

June 13, Disparate Human Evolution

It is clear that genetic selection, in addition to reducing the propensity for disease through elimination of undesirable genes, will also improve physical characteristics and intelligence. Soon, choosing the physical and mental characteristics of a child through cloning and genetic selection will be vastly preferable to the present day biological lottery, assuming one has sufficient capital to afford physical and intellectual augmentation. If the near future, the capital-rich elite will be able to out evolve the rest of us- what then!
