Today, the covert and nebulous #ONOMOLY released their video recap of Laser Twitter at the NFL Super Bowl experience in downtown Phoenix, AZ. Not officially a part of the Super Bowl in any way, #LaserTwitter was uncensored, unsponsored and unbridled. While Budweiser had their $9 million anti-hipster, anti-craft-beer “Macro Brew” ads, ONOMOLY gave citizens a chance to be heard while mocking the Bud Light #UpForWhatever campaign. “Everywhere I looked, I saw ONOMOLY and their messaging. It was on ALL of the buildings,” said a passerby, “Bud Light. Not up for FLAVOR.”
At one point, Bud Light sent Phoenix police officers over to the Laser Twitter building, telling them to stop projecting onto the nearby Palomar Hotel high-rise. “Bud Light’s campaign says they are #UpForWhatever, but clearly not up for free speech,” says a representative of ONOMOLY. “We are messengers of light. Bud Light sells bad tasting beer to people who are too drunk to know the difference.”
“This is about big corporations attempting to quash our voices. The NFL specifically prohibits things like #LaserTwitter. That’s why we did it. The NFL is a sham charity fleecing BILLIONS from taxpayers. People need to know whether they are a fan or not, they are directly subsidizing the wildly profitable NFL. People DO have something to say. We proved that with LaserTwitter.”
The NFL is a charity. No really, it is a 501c3 non-profit organization, yet it makes more money than any other sports entity. If you're a U.S. taxpayer then you're subsidizing the wildly profitable National Football League, regardless of whether you're a fan. They have grabbed almost 5 BILLION in taxpayer funds to build stadiums around the country. The NFL has begun "requesting" that host cities for future super bowls give them FREE everything just for using their city including police as security. The NFL = one GIANT scam.
Have something to say? Say it on #LaserTwitter. Uncensored. Unsponsored. A global real-time messaging platform of light. ANYONE can be a part of this. BE SUBVERSIVE. BE LIGHT.

On a late-November evening in 1987, two Chicago television stations were victims of a broadcast signal intrusion. After a brief intrusion during the sports report on WGN's 9:00 news, a later broadcast on channel 11 - WTTW - of the Doctor Who episode "Horror of Fang Rock" was interrupted by a man wearing a Max Headroom mask.

Although it might have seemed like a good idea to host the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil — one of the most soccer-obsessed countries in the world — massive social unrest has taken the country by storm in the lead-up to the tournament.
The Brazilian government is spending an estimated $14 billion on this year's tournament, making it the most expensive World Cup to date. This has provoked outrage among Brazilians, many of whom view the government as corrupt, and are now seeing vast amounts of money being spent on soccer stadiums and police, while the country's endemic poverty and social issues are ignored.
This growing unrest led to violent anti-government protests breaking out in June of 2013, which have continued with increasing momentum in the lead-up to the World Cup. The Brazilian government has responded to these demonstrations by deploying massive numbers of police and military throughout the country in an attempt to suppress the masses. Despite this crackdown, major demonstrations continue to take place in cities across the country as international teams begin to arrive for the games.
VICE News traveled to Brazil to see how the country is preparing for one of the world's biggest international events, while simultaneously struggling to control a mounting civil uprising.

"Several months ago I was commissioned by the Halsey Institute out of Charleston, South Carolina to shoot a short film on the infamous street artist behind OBEY: Shepard Fairey. I definitely knew Shepard's work, whether it be that repetitive face of Andre the Giant popping up at every street corner I've ever been on, or as the Obama Poster that definitely did more for an election than just add aesthetic to it - but I was not aware at how incredibly inspiring Shepard would turn out to be. For a new understanding of how this skateboarder turned mega famed street star turned out to be, check this film out."
