This city is afraid of me. I have seen its true face. The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout 'Save us!'... and Gon's Balls will whisper 'First... comes... rock!' Hah!  Made you stare at Naruto's Marshmallow!  Pushing the logo off-center to drive TheOcean insane.

Default On SOPA

Iíve been told that Iím not doing enough for the whole Anti-SOPA effort, and I guess I should at the very least address my feelings here if nowhere else.

Donít get me wrong, I think SOPA is terrible and should never be passed. I think these idiots trying to pass the bill are the last people who should have any say as to what goes on with the internet and its content, people who likely struggle to use their own email accounts let alone navigate a site like DeviantArt. I think censorship on the whole is wrong, and an artist has the right to express themselves however they wish.

Having said that, I am not afraid of SOPA.

Some people have noticed this and have misjudged my attitude as being something akin to apathy. But thatís not what it is. Itís not that Iím not worried that SOPA will pass. It may. But Iím not afraid what it suggests for me. Iím very afraid of what it means for other people, but me personally? Not so much.

Thereís always been the looming threat of questionable legality regarding my internet work. The whole parody thing is a very grey area. Yet honestly, if someone came to my place of residence and told me ďYou are going to be sentenced to jail because you made fun of an anime seriesĒ, I would gladly take that punishment if need be. I donít feel it would be all that justified, but if anyone had to take the sentence, I suppose Iíd be amongst the first convicted.

The truth is, even if SOPA passes, it wonít change what I believe. I believe that the bill theyíre trying to pass is wrong, inherently wrong. And as such, I would fight against it by simply continuing to work. If they passed a bill saying it was wrong to marry people from a different country, it would not prevent me from trying to marry the woman I love. Being separated by an ocean is about the same as being separated by prison walls.

It was once considered a crime punishable by death to argue that the world was anything but flat. That didnít stop people who truly believed otherwise from saying just that. And so they died believing the truth.

I donít think I can do much beyond continue to work on these silly parody videos. Unfortunately, most attempts I have made to present serious issues to my fans have been met with sarcasm or complaints that Iím not making new episodes. Some do listen, but I often wonder if Iím doing much good.

All I can do is continue doing what I believe in.

The world is round, people.

Also, LK is in the UK, not in the US, where the bill is being proposed.

I've got a couple of things to say:

1. even though I live in the uk, I oppose this bill, It will indirectly effect many people across the planet, as alot of the worlds websites are run from america, and if a site is censored in the US, it may then be censored for people outside the country aswell!!

and 2. Little kuriboh posted on the site??? he never posts on the site!!! This must be rather special to him!!

Totally agree, except for one thing... People have known the world's round (in Europe at least) since ancient Greece. Perhaps you're thinking it not being the centre of the solar system? History Rant over.

Anyways, keep up the good work LK.

The world consists of three people, in my opinion: Selfish people, Neutral people, and Positive people. The selfish only care for new episodes, and will bitch until it is made, and if it doesn't fit their liking, they'll continue to complain. And then you have those people -- the positive people -- who support your actions, think they're brilliant, and love you for saying something. If you don't, that's fine, but it would've been better to do it. (I'm not telling you what to do. You do whatever you want, bro.)

I don't know how new you are. You have 3,000 posts, so I know you didn't join last week or something. LK isn't frequent in the site, by like, posting in the BAR, or playing forum games. Iirc, he doesn't post much, because when he DOES post, people start going ballistic and saying "OH MY GOD!!!! HI LK!!!!!!!" or "LK POSTED IN A BAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! / LK'S JOINING MY FORUM GAME?! YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" some over dramatic thing. He posts news when he needs to.

Anyways. That's my two cents.

That's all good about SOPA and PIPA, but has anyone consider that ACTA is the biggest threat above them all????
