By now you have probably heard Doghouse Systems promoted to death and back on StarCast. There’s a reason for that. They have supported us longer than any other sponsor, I personally use one of their rigs and it’s amazing and finally, they are MASSIVE freaking geeks. They’re doing a promotion that is the thing of a StarCraft nerd’s wet dream.

Bill Doran of Punished Props is building a screen-accurate, 1/1 scale replica of Kerrigan’s Ghost Rifle and Doghouse will be giving one away. This rifle will be a hand-made, high quality piece of awesome. Use the code Kerrigan when you go to buy a new rig from Doghouse to be entered. You can also combine that code with our code StarCast and still get the double-memory promotion as well.

Win a Copy of Heart of the Swarm!

Meme Contest

Afternoon StarCasters! If you’re up to date on the show you should be more than aware of the contest going on right now. If you are not or need a refresher here is the scoop.

Doghouse Systems has donated two copies of Heart of the Swarm for us to give away. One was already claimed during our live Christmas show, so as far as you’re concerned that copy doesn’t exist. But there is another, equally zergy, copy creeping it’s way across the map known as StarCast-Contests. If you want a chance at winning this copy of HotS submit a meme you created based off an episode of StarCast to StarCastShow@gmail.com before February 2nd.

You’re meme can be based off of anything from an episode: a quote, moment, blooper, guest… the possibilities are limitless! Kyle and myself will be sorting through all the submissions. Whichever we pick as our favorite wins. It’s that simple.

So recap: make a StarCast meme, mail it to StarCastShow@gmail.com, make us laugh, WIN.

P.S. The above memes are examples of fan submissions. I did not go out and create memes about how awesome my own show is. <3′s

I’m not in America so it doesn’t affect me.
A lot of the companies that would be affected are in the states.
Also America has a great deal of control over the internet.

MegaUpload
DNS Takedown request from Universal Media Group.
Universal Media Group took down a music video on YouTube, done by P. Diddy and Kanye West, that supported MegaUpload and they DID NOT have rights to it.

DNS Blocking is used by China, Syria and Iran to sensor the internet.

Safe Harbor Rule
Unless the site is knowingly distributing copyrighted material they are not responsible for what their users upload.

With SOPA and PIPA (Protect IP), instead of having one video pulled from YouTube for copyright infringement.  YouTube itself, the entire site would be taken down without any due process (no trial at all).

The majority of people debating in favor of this bill are not internet-savy people.  Should people who do not know how to even use a computer, let alone the internet, be deciding the future of the internet?

Piracy is an issue.  But using an atom bomb to deal with a small issue is not the answer.  Valve! A video game publisher who is directly hurt by piracy.  Gabe Newel the president of Valve said piracy is a service problem.  The way to defeat it is to provide a better service than piracy.

  1. Sites you visit daily could be blocked
  2. Email providers may be forced to censor links you send and receive
  3. The links and content you share on social networks will be monitored and censored
  4. Tools used by democracy activists in China and Iran will be blocked in the US one of the greatest flagships of democracy in the history of of our world
  5. Our shows StarCast and Biggest Fan could be taken down for merely mentioning copyrighted material.  I know that Kyle and I have made people, who would not of otherwise, purchase a copy of the game we do a show on.
  6. What about the next YouTube or Facebook?  These acts will stifle innovation and job creation.  One of the largest issues plaguing America right now.  Imagine another Google not coming into play because a site with pirated content shows up on their search?  Google employs a MASSIVE amount of people.  Do we really want to kill the chance for internet job creation in a time where we need to nurture every possible avenue to improve our countries job count?
