It would appear our newly elected prime minister Kevin Rudd plans to introduce a mandatory internet filter to every Australian ISP. What does this mean?
Well in short, it means total internet censorship. Nearly to the scale you'd see in communist regime like China. The government will be able to block anything they deem inappropriate. This doesn't just mean pornography, they mean what they say. ANYTHING, deemed inappropriate to minors.
Anyone can unblock this filter on request, but the problem here is that sites like Newgrounds (for example) may be on the black list for families, along with pornography. SO you'll most likely see families keeping up the filter to protect the kids from tits and ass, as well as Pico and Alien Hominid.
Personally I think this proposed filter goes against everything a democracy stands for. Hopefully it won't get through parliament.
If it does we'll all make cartoons calling Kevin Rudd a homo, because that's the mature way to solve arguments online!!
So yeah, if you're an Aussie.. Let me know what you think.
ANYWAYS.. OTHER SHIT NOW.
Today I got contacted by the local film school I was doing animation substitute work for last year. Turns out they want to give me a position as their new semester Flash teacher. Should be cool I guess.. Teachings rather piss when you know what you're talking about. Just spills out of your mouth like diarrhoea onto the kids ears.
Speaking of spilling diarrhoea onto kids ears, I think I have to get some sort of mandatory background check. So they can see if I'm not wanted/convicted kiddy fiddler.
Oh and a few days ago I got word that I'm being contracted on for more TV work with ABC this year. Should keep food in my belly whilst in USA this July..
SPEAKING OF USA.. I got fucking sweeeeeeeeeet news about me going there this year. My aunt who has an apartment in LA is going to be away the month of July and So if any of you rascals want to go and cuddle at my place after Comic Con, be my guest.
I'm looking at you Luis!!
