The SOPA Blackout Is Over

We're back! 8pm on the dot, look at that. Anyway, thanks for sticking with the site through that. The blackout site is forever preserved here if you ever want to check it out (it contains many helpful links). Thankfully a lot of sites did this today and there seemed to be a pretty significant impact seen throughout the day (largely thanks to Wikipedia, which will be blacked out until midnight). That includes normally Hollywood-friendly Republican Senator Orrin Hatch promising to vote against the bill as well as a variety of one-time supporters of PIPA and SOPA dropping support. Perhaps most importantly President Obama has said he will veto either bill if one comes across his desk, effectively killing both pieces of legislation without serious alterations to either.

Of course, as you probably know, it's not over, and it may never be. Please take the time to email or fax (you don't need a fax machine!) your state representative and let them know how unhappy you are with this legislation. Sign Google's petition and learn more about what you can do. Piracy and copyright infringement are very real problems, but bills like SOPA and PIPA are not the right way to combat those issues. Mostly just remember that you can make a difference and what you think does matter. The next time someone tells you that protests don't work, just remember today.

Thanks for reading! Now we'll get back to some Venture Bros. stuff, promise.

The Mantis-Eye Experiment To Go Dark On January 18th

If you're a user of the internet, and I know that you are, you may have heard of two anti-piracy bills that have been kicking around in the US Senate and House. They are Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect IP Act (PIPA). For US citizens passage of these bills would be a major blow to a free and open web, and potentially a means to an end for many sites out there that depend on community-driven content and participation.

In general I try not to take any sort of political stance here (with varying degrees of success), since it's not really the time nor the place, but I feel that these two bills are too detrimental to ignore. So on that note, following the lead of Wikipedia, Reddit and many, many more this site will go dark tomorrow, January 18th from 8am until 8pm (eastern time). To learn more about SOPA and PIPA, and to learn what you can do to help, visit Stop American Censorship. Thanks for your support and understanding.

View The Gallery 1988 X Adult Swim Pieces

Head on over to the Gallery 1988 X Adult Swim site to see all of the pieces featured in the show and perhaps to purchase one if that's your thing. Many of the originals are still for sale and some of the artists are also offering more economical limited-edition prints. Remember, the show will also be running until February 4th at the Melrose location, so if you find yourself in the Los Angeles area you should check it out. Also don't forget to check out the Mantis-Eye gallery featuring many of the Venture Bros. pieces in the show (with the remaining ones soon to be added).

I've also been posting various Venture Bros. pieces from the show and now have compiled all of them, as well as a few new ones, into a Gallery 1988 X Adult Swim gallery (the online kind of gallery, not a physical one, you have to go to the show for that).

It's a month old but there's not much news here for two years at a time, so whatever :) https://www.denofgeek.com/us/tv/the-venture-bros/281421/the-venture-bros-season-8-jackson-publick-doc-hammer

Okay, Venturoos. Here's what ya get for the Extras, at least on the DVD version. I felt it was a little light, but that's just my opinion. Deleted Scenes (as always) - Some are B&W sketches with the dialog, others are animated with the dialog. Ghost in the Pro-Blem - An extended view of the distorted images of events from the Pro-BLEM's point of view. Maybe there are some clues hidden in it if you like frame-by-frame advancing. Maybe not. Sirena Goes Off... - Cristin Milioti ad-libbing way more dialog than the script calls for. Poor Rocco. Promo - Basically the season 7 promo. Maybe there's Easter Eggs to find. I haven't done any extensive searching yet. If anyone finds any feel free to post them here!
