Is It Possible to Love a Horse Too Much?

Posted in GETV Episode by ekai on the March 2nd, 2009

After watching the movie ZOO during one night of insomnia, Irina decided that a Boeing geek who worked on black ops, built guided missile systems and ended up dying of horse intercourse could be a good topic for an episode. ZOO is about Kenneth Pinyan, a Boeing engineer who died “due to acute peritonitis [that resulted from the] perforation of the sigmoid colon during anal intercourse with a horse.”

Since that guy is dead, GETV interviewed Charles Mudede, the man who researched the heck out of the topic and wrote a movie about him. Mudede a journalist for one of America’s best alternative newsweeklies, The Stranger in Seattle, said something we already know…. “that without the internet, this [horse sex] community would not exist. The combination of a leading technology of our day and an ancient – if dark – practice would not exist.” But really, what the movie tells us is that we are all weird and searching for something, some kind of connection. Not all of us have to fuck a horse to find it, but don’t be so quick to judge. Know what I mean?

EFF Email Debate: Should the Sender Pay?

Posted in GETV Episode by ekai on the April 22nd, 2006

GETV was present for the fancy & contentious EFF sponsored debate & fundraiser over the future of email. In the ring we have Danny O’Brien, EFF’s Activist Coordinator duking it out with Esther Dyson, internet luminary and editor of Release 1.0. This verbal smackdown is moderated by Mitch Kapor, EFF co-founder and well known supplier of the 80’s warez scene with its reddest meat, Lotus 1-2-3. We can’t reveal who walked away the winner, but Irina does get the scoop in her post-debate interviews with the players.
