Jimquisition Emblem Pins Back In Stock! Buying A Shirt Gets One Free

The immensely popular Jimquisition emblem pins are now back in stock, and unlike Nintendo, we actually make our product to fit the demand!

After the initial run of 500 proved to be far too few, Sharkrobot had another 2,000 prepared. You can get them right there, and if you buy any T-shirt from the Jimquisition store, you can get a pin entirely free.

Give yourself the gift of a small metal picture this Christmas. Why not, eh? EH!?

Let’s Take A Moment To Laugh At ContentID Fucking Up The Game Awards

We’ve spoken in exhaustive detail about the utter ridiculousness of ContentID and how it’s abused by companies who disrespect Fair Use on YouTube.

Now we have perhaps the most beautiful example of the automated copyright detection system working in all its fuckheaded glory. Last night’s stream of The Game Advertisements is currently muted due to ContentID’s robotic detection and silencing of allegedly copyrighted audio.
