"I've never done blow. But I certainly enjoy the smell of it." -King George The Deuce _ _ ((___)) cDc GRAND IMPERIAL DYNASTY [ x x ] Global Domination Update #30 \ / "A Special Message of Hope" (' ') July 7th, 2004 (U) FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE _________________________________/ - x X x - \______________________________ * cDc HITS THE BIG TWO-ZERO * THE WHITE ROSE * PARIS FOR PREZ * _________________________________/ - x X x - \______________________________ SHORT FORM, TOP-DOWN STYLE WITH EZ BULLET POINTS: * It's cDc's 20th anniversary. We rule, just ask us. * Thus, we are hosting a very high-powered panel at 2600 Magazine's HOPE conference in NYC on Saturday, July 10th at 6 pm. http://www.the-fifth-hope.org/hoop/index.khtml "CULT OF THE DEAD COW Hacktivism Panel Eric Grimm, Sharon Hom, Dr. James Mulvenon, Oxblood Ruffin, Nart Villeneuve Over 40 years ago Marshall McLuhan declared that the Third World War would be an information war in which civilians and the military wouldn't be particu- larly distinguished. That vision has become a reality. Governments from China to Zimbabwe have strangled access to information critical of their regimes, often with the aid of American companies. And as quickly, resistance has sprung up to challenge that repression. Areas of opportunity are beginning to emerge as hackers, human rights activists, and the academic community begin to join forces. This panel will explore the phenomenon of state-sponsored censorship and grassroots resistance from the political, legal, technological, and human rights perspectives." * We have new stuff out that you should leech. _________________________________/ - x X x - \______________________________ LONG FORM, WITTY SAGA STYLE by OXBLOOD: All hell's a poppin'. Bill Clinton has released his magnum door stopper. Dubya's learning to read. It's a great day for literacy. Michael Moore is promoting Fahrenheit 9/11, his meditation on Presidential facial tics. And not to be outdone, Al Quaeda lensmen are doing boffo in the blood and guts department. Kind of like a low budget Mel Gibson film, but we digress. The Washington press corps couldn't be more outraged. OUTRAGED we say. Normally the fourth estate is too busy reprinting Whitehouse bumf to notice reality. But hark, there's a stench of glory in the air. We're in an election year. Yay! Rock the vote. Free drinks. Ugly t-shirts. Kiss my blog. The right wants Tubby Moore's guts for lunch, and the left wants to light Ann Coulter's thong on fire. It's mourning in America, and Ronnie's all gone. Sniff. But who gives a stinking brownie? !!! BECAUSE IT'S THE CULT OF THE DEAD COW'S TWENTIETH ANNIVERSARY !!! Now is the time to reflect on the things that truly matter. Like world peace, human rights, and kissing our Big Cow Ass. We were hacking .mil networks when you were skipping to school with jam on your face. Pron. We invented the word. BO2K. Can anyone say Magic Lantern? Publishing. cDc is the first e-zine ever, and free on the Internet since 1993. Hacktivism. We invented that word too, noun and verb. We go where we want. We say what needs to be said. We do what needs to be done. And if anyone has a problem with that, refer to paragraph four. We've been doing our best to keep free speech alive and kicking. From day one the cDc has been stretching the limits of the 1st Amendment. And when Internet censors have erected firewalls around entire nations, our pals at Hacktivismo have done their bit to move more information around. Not that keeping the Internet free is an easy task. When you've got companies like Cisco and Websense exporting censorship from America, it kind of makes you wonder who the bad guys are. Whatever. Fuck 'em. It's been twenty glorious years. We've won a few, lost a few. But through it all we've stayed on course. We'll outlast any and all comers, laughing at dotcom pretenders, and making prank calls to the Offal Office. Fear us, we're embedded. And check out our new stuff. Certified to change your life and make you employee of the month. This batch of text articles features the greatest German krew of all, The White Rose. In this time of turmoil - with elections and bombs and a lazy ass press - it's nice to look back to a group that made a difference. The White Rose were German students who led a passive resistance movement against Hitler. They lasted eighteen months before they were caught and guillotined. We thought you'd like to learn about these heroes and read the six pamphlets they published. Holler. And last but not least, if all of this political business bores the balls off you, there's always Paris in springtime. Or preferably fall. Write in Miss Paris Hilton for President this November if the current crop of boners isn't to your taste. She may lack experience, but anyone who can take a phone call and hump at the same time deserves a second look. Effective leadership is all about multitasking. Run, Paris, run! _________________________________/ - x X x - \______________________________ _ _ information is junk mail: _ _ ((___)) THE TEDIUM IS THE MESSAGE ((___)) [ x x ] _ [ x x ] \ / _ |_|_ _ _|_ _|_ |_ _ _| _ _. _| _ _ \ / (' ') (_|_|| |_ (_) | |_ | |(/_ (_|(/_(_|(_| (_(_)\_/\_/ (' ') (U) (U) deal with it presents unto you our personal gift of love deal with it S U C K E R NEW RELEASES S U C K E R _______________________________/new text files\_____________________________ 382:"Neophyte's Guide To Peepshow Booths" by Delchi.

Soon Billy is investigating the missing Saugus to the Sea road, the shady goings-on at the Caltech Earthquake Hotline and a mysterious cabal of Arbor Day anarchists intent on turning Hollywood Boulevard into a forest preserve."
