Sparkle Girl Excoriates Bastards





It has just come to Sparkle Girl's attention that the U.S. military has a new toy, the "Long Range Acoustic Device, or LRAD". This nefarious instrument of sonic torture promises to be useful for "dispersing hostile crowds and warding off potential enemy combatants". With their customary scientific precision, CNN describes its function; "It blasts earsplitting noise in a directed beam". Sparkle Girl is unimpressed. We have been doing that for years. In their playground attempt at one-upsmanship, the coercive state apparatus once again targets Seattle's most degenerate sound art cell. "The developer of the LRAD, American Technology Corp. of San Diego, recently got a $1.1 million contract from the U.S. Marine Corps to buy the gadgets for units deployed to Iraq". Must be nice. As usual, big business is in collusion with the repressive foot soldiers of state terror, all the worse for Sparkle Girl. Due to our policy against copyright, our ideas were helpless game before the predatory hooks of a Californian corporation so desperately fucking EVIL they feel the need to plunder the intellectual property of two 30-something lumpen- bourgeoisies. Design a weapon of your own invention, you cerebral pickpockets! That it was described as an "auditory barrage dispenser" is proof-positive that these billionaire bureaucrats did not hesitate to loot the reams of critical analysis written about Sparkle Girl and subvert those sacred texts to their own reptilian and insidious ends. "Dubbed "The Sound of Force Protection" in a company brochure, the devices can broadcast sound files containing warning messages." Sparkle Girl has been broadcasting "warning messages" for 5 grueling years, and the parasitical pigs in power still aren't listening! Here is the latest, then... stop ripping us off! Stop hounding Sparkle Girl! Stop calling us at all hours of the night! And trash your ridiculous, infantile "noise weapons" or we will bring two fifty-watt amplifiers over to your house and teach your grandpa how to fuck!!!

Sparkle girl? First, what the hell is a sparkle girl? Second, what are you babbling about? Third, learn how to write without run-on sentences. Fourth, lay of the drugs.

Don't tell me about American Technology. I already know and have been following ATCO for eight years. Save your breath...I know it's old technology but they are the ones that have stepped-up to the plate and have taken the risks.
