Google launched a petition. Wikipedia voted to shut itself off. Senators' websites went down just from the sheer surge of voters trying to write them. NYC and SF geeks had protests that packed city blocks.
You made history today: nothing like this has ever happened before. Tech companies and users teamed up. Tens of millions of people who make the internet what it is joined together to defend their freedoms. The free network defended itself. Whatever you call it, the bottom line is clear: from today forward, it will be much harder to mess up the internet.
The really crazy part? We might even win.
P.S. Show this video to as many people as you can. It works! http://fightforthefuture.org/
Approaching Monday's crucial Senate vote there are now 35 Senators publicly opposing PIPA. Last week there were 5. And it just takes just 41 solid "no" votes to permanently stall PIPA (and SOPA) in the Senate. What seemed like miles away a few weeks ago is now within reach.
But don't trust predictions. The forces behind SOPA & PIPA (mostly movie companies) can make small changes to these bills until they know they have the votes to pass. Members of Congress know SOPA & PIPA are unpopular, but they don't understand why--so they're easily duped by superficial changes. The Senate returns next week, and the next few days are critical. Here are two things to think about:
1. Plan on calling your Senator every day next week. Pick up the phone each morning and call your Senators' offices, until they vote "no" on cloture. If your site participated today, consider running a "Call the Senate" link all next week.
2. Tomorrow, drop in at your Senators' district offices. We don't have a cool map widget to show you the offices nearest you (we're too exhausted! any takers?). So do it the old fashioned way: use Google, or the phonebook to find the address, and just walk in, say you oppose PIPA, and urge the Senator to vote "no" on cloture. These drop-in visits make our spectacular online protests more tangible and credible.
That's it for now. Be proud and stay on it!"

We are so excited about season 2 of the makeup competition show Face Off premiering tonight on SyFy. It showcases the type of makeup that we carry and the amazing things that can be done with makeup in the hands of skilled and amazingly talented makeup artists. The previews of the show have been really intriguing with the fascinating makeup creations that come from the imaginations of the makeup artist contestants on the show who are competing to be the last artist standing and the Face Off Season 2 winner. SyFy.com has season 1 episodes available to watch and catch up on as well as previews and images of some of the great transformation of people into living art.
Stay tuned to the StageAndTheaterMakeup.com Blog as we will highlight the types of makeup and makeup techniques used in each episode.
Here are some pics from SyFy.com/FaceOff which are the best looks from Season 1 of Face Off:
