We think he might need an electronic tissue. He sounds kind of hazy or something.
We thought it would be best to inform you that a storm is a'comin. It's a'brewin on the Internet and it seems that one of the fighting sides is ready to blow into the operations of SOPA supporters and make them think twice before screwing with the freedom of the world wide web.
The Anonymous movement has promised that there will be grave repercussions should Megaupload not be reinstated, and now, they've released a video outlining their exact plan of attack.
Check out the video (above), courtesy of AnonymousVoice777, to hear their message to the people.
Then, after you've watched the video, CLICK THE JUMP to read the proposed plan for Anonymous' first attack.
Operation Global Blackout is apparently upon us … and it's given Anonymous the rights to copyrighted music. Nice!

They may still be alive, but they're MUCH weaker now!
To recap - yesterday, a bunch of websites went dark for the day in protest of the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect IP Act (PIPA).
As the day went on, we were pleased to hear that several senators backed down as supporters of PIPA! We were also happy to hear that more House reps decided to stop supporting SOPA!
Now, we've learned some of the IMPRESSIVE results of yesterday's anti-Internet censorship blackout! Here are some highlights….

Earlier this week, we were VERY pleased to hear that the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) was basically killed…although now we're hearing rumblings that it MAY not be as dead as we'd hoped. Boo!
Today, in protest of SOPA and the Protect IP Act (PIPA), a bunch of websites are going dark for the day in an effort to fight against Internet censorship!
Some websites that are participating in the blackout include Wikipedia, Mozilla, Wordpress, Livejournal, Twitpic, and Reddit.
We are in FULL support of this, and we truly hope that neither SOPA nor PIPA make it any further than they already have!

Ugh! SOPA was such a bitch! She deserved to get killed!!
We're so happy Representative Eric Cantor decided to stop all action on the bill that would inevitably kill the internet as we know it.
We're no fan of piracy, but this was just too extreme. They would have potentially been able to shut down sites like YouTube or Tumblr whenever copyright material was used without permission — despite the amount of heavy press and play the owner would subsequently receive.
