We’re baaaaack!

Sorry for the downtime. I’m back for now with lots of stuff prepped, but I should warn that there will be a little downtime over the next week when we move ModBlog to a dedicated server, and I’ve got a bunch of surgeries over the next (probably) month. They’re not expected to be a big deal (click here if you want to see what they’re removing — and have a chuckle at the crazy dude that thinks it’s an implant and that I’m a millionaire), but they’ll mean the occasional day or three of silence.

Anyway, let me start out 2007 with Jacques‘s liberty-themed tattoo done by Kat at Underground Arts in Wellington, New Zealand… I figure that BME and its members are in a constant state of testing where personal liberty begins, and at what point the State is willing to step in and punish you for taking control of your own body, assisting someone else in doing so, or in my case, publishing it and promoting it. So fingers crossed that we see those liberties continue to expand in 2007. Although we’ve had a couple rough patches, I think the notion that “freedom of expression” is a right and “self ownership of the body” is an undisputed truth, grow closer to being universally accepted.

  1. Thanks for new postings! And keep up the good work! Without modblog, there´s definitely something missing on my daily list of “things to check on the ‘net”!

  2. I love the idea that because someone has a child, said someone is supposed to NEVER DO ANYTHING RISKY EVER AGAIN EVER. Blech. How much of their lives do people like that leave behind when they have kids?

  3. hehehe … thats why I love youTube … you could not simulate that massive concentration of stupidity … sometimes I think there are actually people who can write but cannot read – not even listen or understand what writing is and the fact that others will be able to read their shit! *lol* … anyways … all the best to you!!

  4. yeah ive been witing for an update for ages! hope all goes well Shannon. some real dumb asses out there, implant under the skull! impossible!

  5. I too hope all goes well.
    That tattoo’s great. I like the idea of the chestpiece too, but what does it say?
    Oh gods, I could go on and on about the stupidity of that Youtube poster… With regard to mods, that kind of opinion is what scares me most about having (much-wanted) kids… people treating me like a baby-machine who cannot have a personality…
