Join us on Wednesday, April 23rd at 10am PST for an AMA (Ask Me Anything) with the director of Birdemic 2:The Resurrection, James Nyugen. The film, destined to be another cult classic, has “romance, horror, awkward sex, deadly birds, zombies, and a giant jellyfish.” Birdemic 2: The Resurrection picks up on the catastrophe of the first film when a flock of eagles and vultures wreak havoc amidst blossoming romance in Hollywood, California, leaving bloodshed and destruction wherever they hover in the sequel to the cult smash hit Birdemic: Shock and Terror.
Reddit has been democratizing internet news for a while now and it’s still gotta have ads to pay the bills. But at least now you can upvote or downvote ads. See an ad and hate it? Downvote it and you’ll never see it again. Hopefully this will give advertisers feedback on the kinds of ads that annoy people, because they seem to have no idea at all whatsoever.

At age 14, Aaron Swartz co-authored the first set of specs for RSS. He then went on to co-found Reddit and later founded DemandProgress.org, the leading voice against the SOPA and PIPA internet censorship bills. He died by his own hand yesterday at the age of 26. Today, the internet has lost one of its great talents and assets and protectors. RIP.

The Redditor that goes by the name of Violentacrez has been a Reddit fixture for some time now, operating anonymously… that is until Gawker went and tracked him down.Thoughts? Was it right to out him? At first I thought so, but now, not so much.
Just wanted to see if I could get some IHC love for a petition that was started on Reddit. We are trying to get Borderlands on the Vita and could use all the help we can get. I know it’s asking for a shit ton but I knew that IHC has always shown the love in the past. Thanks in advance… Link to the reddit page and the petition… (Join up Redditors)
