Good evening folks! The AudioVillains are back again with episode 21! Where’s episode 20 you ask? Well, like every show, there is a lost episode. For us, episode 20 is our lost episode. We had some technical difficulties and although it was a great show there was some static that ruined it. Either way though, we are back after a couple weeks off and we kicked ass! This week we talked about 80’s Kung-Fu movies, the paradox of time travel and Terminator 3, and finally we made some cracks at Mike Tyson. It’s something we would never do in person because we would get our asses handed to us but in the end it was all fun and games. As always you can email us at email@example.com or click the black button on the left. Cheers!

Good afternoon everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve written out of post that didn’t have to do with school or the JCast. I promise to get back to my roots and with that said I have a funny article for you today. This morning I made breakfast for my son and I. We were trying to figure out what to watch and decided to go with Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory, the version with Gene Wilder. This movie has to be one of my all time favorites and watching my eight year old get a kick out of it makes me smile.
As we watched and laughed at the sarcasm of Wonka, I tweeted a few items of curiosity on the movie over Twitter. For example,
@rmIIvisions: Curiosity: if Charlie’s mom can sing like an angel then why the hell are they poor? #willywonkaandthechocolatefactory
My tweets go from Twitter to my wall on Facebook. It started there and as you can see from the picture below it went a bit further. So…what if social media, YouTube and funny meme’s were around during this time?
With Willy Wonka’s sarcasm it would make for an excellent day of tweets from the tour. What about right before he walked out to greet the public or when everyone got on the boat?
@TheRealWillyWonka: Phew, about to walk out to greet these people, pretend I’m stroking out, fall and jump up. #beingcheeky
@TheRealWillyWonka: Just dropped some acid and now to freak them out on my boat. Maybe sing and scream. #freakout
@TheRealWillyWonka: Just showed them #WonkaVision & this kid Mike just shrunk himself. Oh well… #ontothetaffyroom
You have to admit that it would be very funny! The entire cast would have excellent tweets! They would be recording video’s and posting them to YouTube and as my friend Matt mentioned, Charlie’s mom would have gone viral with her “Cheer Up Charlie” song and they would be rich! It would be awesome and what I would like from you are some comments with more mock Twitter or Facebook status messages from the cast. Use your imagination folks and lets have some fun! The best comments will be featured on the next episode of the JCast! Cheers!Post Views: 271

The No 9 Needed campaign is in full force! What is this campaign you ask? The No 9 Needed campaign, as Mark Fletcher of Avaya put it, means 9-1-1 from any phone WITHOUT a prefix “9.” I couldn’t have explained it better myself. The campaign is gaining support from all over the globe, but like most grassroots movements, it began with a tragic incident.
On December 1 2013, Kari Dunn lost her life at the hands of her estranged husband. She had agreed to meet him at a hotel for a short visitation with their three children. During this time Kari was attacked. Her nine-year-old daughter did what she had been taught to do in an emergency and picked up the phone to dial 9-1-1 but the call never went through. After trying to call for help she gathered her younger siblings and was able to get help from a neighboring room.
So what went wrong? Kari’s daughter dialed the right number but the problem was in the system. In order to call an outside line the prefix “9” needs to be dialed first. The sequence would be 9-9-1-1. Kari’s daughter had no idea and who would? In a situation like this one would dial what they know. One would dial 9-1-1 not 9-9-1-1. Shortly after the incident Kari’s father Hank Hunt started a petition for Kari’s Law on Change.org. The following is from the description of the petition,
We are attempting to ensure that any person needing police, EMS or the Fire Department at any hotel or motel location may be able to dial the numbers 911 and receive emergency response. In a panic, any under age child, or for that matter anyone in an emergency situation should be able to depend on dialing 911 from any phone in the United States and receiving assistance.
Kari’s story and the petition for Kari’s Law have circled the globe. 425,000+ people have signed the petition and it continues to gain support. Below you will find links to the petition, a fundraiser for Kari’s children, a link to Change it for Kari on Facebook and articles from Mark Fletcher of Avaya and a symbol I designed for the campaign so that you can show your support. There are two sizes and are both high-resolution quality. On February 9 2014, Kari’s birthday, the No 9 Needed campaign asks that you show your support by changing your Facebook profile picture to the logo below. You can do the same on Twitter and please share the petition as well. You can use the hashtags #KarisLaw and #No9Needed. Let’s make this a trending topic, let’s do it for Kari!
