Pump up the Volume is the best movie ever.

Okay maybe just the best movie of the 90’s. Still, I’ll follow Happy Harry Hard On till the day I die. And the Eat Me Beat Me Lady? Shazam! I deify you to find a more compelling sex symbol. There’s a girl here at the office that reminds me of her. I think about her all the time. I even make tasks for myself that put me in her vicinity.

But I digress.

This film had a huge impact on me. My older brother actually set up his own pirate station with a transmitter from Radio Shack. He could broadcast up to four even five blocks away. It was rad.

Sure, now everyone and their dog can have a blog or podcast. But that doesn’t mean they should. Speaking out loud should be a privilege not a right. In fact, talking for the sake of talking should be penalized on a sliding scale. Random outburst? Okay, no big deal, everyone slips up from time to time let’s call that a 5 dollar fine. On the other end you have the full out, standing on a soap box, nonsensical diatribe. That’s a kick in the baby maker.

The point is, if you have something real to say. Do it.

I am simply creating the hole for you to fill.

“Do your homework in the dark and eat your cereal with a fork”. Have more prolific words ever been spoken?

I think you're a new cult leader - and I think I may be one of the happiest to join you.
You know, I didn't quite understand what was happening to my tv when MOD began to glitch - but I think I fell in love once I saw the goggles and the "phreak615.com" sign.
My, I just hope that someday Ill be able to pull off a hack that magnificent once you're gone - a sort of ode to phreak615.

Love your new fan and follower - Coma.

May I first say that I totally agree with Coma. I am drinking your Kool Aid willingly and by the gallon. Not a hacker, myself, although I am currently building a pirate radio station inspired by a friend of mine. CRTR can be a bitch though... ah well! Anyways, props for the incredible hack. Not many people can catch my attention these days, but you definitely did. Oh and Pump Up the Volume has been my favourite movie since 1996. Well, keep it up because I'm definitely listening now.

Nice work, matey (ok, that's stretching the pirate thing a little far)

Ever hear of a Grafitti artist by the name of Banksy. He does this thing he calls 'brandalism'. his reason behind it is the fact that we're bombarded by market created crap, and if we didn't do anything with it, it would be like asking to keep a rock that someone just threw at your head.

For some reason your handywork reminded me of this.

I'm no good for short comments.

Could you possibly hack at the exact moment when Leah's face appears? Or every time it appears? Maybe block out her voice too?

She's so vapid...

Anybody interested in these "hackings" should check this out:

It's a video that should shed a whole lot of light on this situation and what's really going on.

HeatVision_and_Jack said...

right... they look like they got it all figured out.

i just wonder how they could operate the camera while they're that stoned.

Mad skillz... duh. If anything, they should be the new Much Music program that all this viral advertising is for.

...I am a real hacker, not so more corporate whore. Deal with it.

Using WHOIS doesn't make you a hacker. That's the first thing I did and according to the e-mails I've recieved back from phreak, the name is obviously a fake.

ok well i'm going to just comment on the clip of the movie first. it actually looks awesome! thanx for posting it phreak!

whether this is a hoax or an actual hack, what does it really matter? yeah, i don't like seeing this kid on my screen when i'm watching tv, but really...it could all just be a joke right?

so i went to the youtube link and watched it. wow, gotta love those random videos. she talks about how we are just adding to the hype of it all, um hello? aren't you doing the exact same thing by making that video? call me crazy...

anyways, i'm not saying i like this whole thing really, and i would really just like to see this guys face, but honestly people. deal with it.
