Monoculture & SOCPA

The odds of [ profile] draxar and [ profile] dainul not having noticed this already are small, but just in case, » Blog Archive » TRANSMETROPOLITAN: Monoculture.

Yup, my mates design project just got picked up by [ profile] warrenellis, who seems happy to see is. Külness. Well done Mr Pink.

Actually, might as well post these rather than mailing you. [ profile] d_notice_fd moved to London just before I did, I'd been reading his blog for ages before that, and he's ended up living around the corner. He writes a lot about SOCPA, and attended the All-day Lone Protest, his Flickr photostream has stuff, and I especially like this placard...

ETA: [ profile] snapesbabe links to this petition and has more links and info.

I got notified by a bunch of new comments to it, about 9 this morning. Not sure about [ profile] dainul though, this might be what informs him of his newfound fame. The number of views has gone up by about two thousand since the last time I checked it before the linkage.

I'd considered emailing Mr Ellis about it, but I decided that there might be legal issues with me using his work that he could ignore if he happened to come accross it himself, but that he'd have to do something about if I went to him going "Look! Look!".

It's also quite nice in that it gives me more reason to do some other similar stuff I was considering doing, as I've now got a better chance of a decent audience.

I was actually thinking of doing one or two V for vendetta speeches - the multi-V introduction, and/or the 'there's something very wrong with our country' speech. I suppose a slightly adjusted version of the second one could work for SoCPA:

Words offer the means to meaning, and for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth. And the truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country, isn't there? Cruelty and injustice, intolerance and oppression. And where once you had the freedom to object, to think and speak as you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillance coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission.

If you can find me a decent speech that relates to the issue, or can be taken to do so (i.e. appropriate old speeches about freedom), then I can probably do something from that.

True. Then again, doing V and something else is always a possibility, depending on how much time I have and how polished the finished product needs to be.
