Protect fresh speech. Stop SOPA and PIPA!

I’m sure you have heard about the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect IP Act (PIPA). They are two bills that sound like they have a positive aim but, in reality, have serious potential to change and make the internet unfresh as we know it. The following video below by Fight For The Future explains the effects SOPA and PIPA can have on our internetz:

So you ask yourself what can I do to keep the internetz fresh? Well that’s simple.

Tell congress not to censor your web:

Call your elected officials:

Censor your website in protest:

Even Marie Laveau couldn’t have saved LSU

For all of you who don’t know who Marie Laveau was, she was the meanest, baddest, voodoo queen of New Orleans back in the day.

LSU thought they could come in the dome and steal our joy but there wasn’t anyone, anything, or any voodoo queen stopping the Tide on the night of the 9th!

(P.S. for a shorter lesson on Ms. Laveau’s voodoo magic check out this song: Bobby Bare – Marie Laveau)

When Alabama senior linebacker Courtney Upshaw addressed his teammates earlier this week, he kept coming back to one word.

Legendary.

“What I told them was, ‘Let’s be legendary,’ ” Upshaw recounted. “And that’s all they heard from me over and over again during the game.”

Oh what a legendary night it was! History was made as Alabama shutout LSU 21-0 for the first time in a BCS National Championship game. I’d like to welcome back our #14th National Championship to “title town“!

Here’s the pics and video from a fun week in the Big Easy:
