This Canada Day, MPs are handing out Canada flag lapel pins. Unfortunately, the idiots purchased pins manufactured in China, by a U.S.-owned shell company.

That U.S. company (6768997 Canada Inc.) is headquartered in a suburban townhouse just outside of Montreal. Fishy?

“What is going on at Public Works that this company could set up a shell address in a suburban street and then, in no time, score a contract with the government of Canada?”
– Charlie Angus, NDP.

While Heritage Minister James Moore says that the company is Canadian, the owner of 6768997 Canada Inc. is listed as Californian.

And back in 2005, they promised not to do it again.

No only has Trent Reznor produced a lifetime worth of breakthrough music (though it seems insulting to refer to it as just music), but he’s given the whole recording industry a huge fuck you:

Hello everyone. I’ve waited a LONG time to be able to make the following announcement: as of right now Nine Inch Nails is a totally free agent, free of any recording contract with any label. I have been under recording contracts for 18 years and have watched the business radically mutate from one thing to something inherently very different and it gives me great pleasure to be able to finally have a direct relationship with the audience as I see fit and appropriate. Look for some announcements in the near future regarding 2008. Exciting times, indeed.

The fallout? You can download the latest album for free right here:

And don’t forget the NINJA (Nine Inch Nails/Janes Addiction) tour. Get a sampler here:

God I hated the fucking ruling pen. And we had computers in my school, but for some reason, we had to learn how to use ruling pens and rubylith.

I hate you.

I hate you too

They’re back with all original members!  I took major influence from them as I developed my drumming style. Mike Bordin, Lars Ulrich and Stephen Perkins were all major contributors.

Judging by the name Many Voices, Many Visions, I’m guessing the creators thought they were making a show about tolerance. Think you might have missed the bull’s-eye by a few millimetres, guys.
