•April 1, 2011 • Leave a Comment

ST just upped its academic cred yet again! An order came through for 25 copies from Brooklyn College- as part of the course syllabus in the classics department. Says our man Shenton:

…though the class is not itself part of the Classics program, it’s part of the core curriculum and is intended as an upper level philosophy/literature course for students that are not necessarily humanities majors.

The Sinister Truth comes to the hallowed halls of Brooklyn College!

And it looks like we’re in some swell company, too! Just get a load of this course description:

CORC 3109 The Self and Society –

Critical examination of issues of the self and society in works bysuch authors as Thoreau, Kafka, Duerrenmatt, Orwell, Dostoyevsky, Sartre, Camus, Ellison. Topics include reflections on the self andpersonal integrity, justice and responsibility, alienation.

Other conversation starters for the class include From Hell by Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell and The Killer Inside Me by Jim Thompson.

The Sinister Truth: MK-Ultra has made the top ten on the Village Voice Best New Comics and Graphic Novels of 2010!

 

The Sinister Truth: MK Ultra (Pop Industries, 102 pp., $11.95) exposes our own government’s nefarious experiments with mind control and the CIA’s 638 different plots to kill Castro (and you thought it was only exploding cigars). Jason Ciaccia’s tale of LSD-crazed assassins would seem ridiculously hyperbolic if it weren’t derived from the CIA’s own files. With nods to Grosz, Bacon, and Steadman, Aaron Norhanian’s fervid ink drawings propel this witty hybrid of underground comix and the History channel right over the top.

The Sinister Truth now available: FOR DOWNLOAD!

Call of Duty: Black Ops plot allowing players to assassinate Fidel Castro causes outrage in Cuba

A computer game that challenges players to assassinate former Cuban president Fidel Castro has provoked outrage in Cuba.

Call of Duty: Black Ops – which went on sale in the UK this week – sees players take on the role of a special operative as he saves the US from a communist plot, travelling between Cuba, Vietnam and Russia.

The game’s first mission is to assassinate a young Castro before the 1962 missile crisis, the moment when the Cold War came closest to tipping into a full-blown nuclear conflict.

 

Controversial: Fidel Castro (second from right) alongside Robert McNamara (far left), John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon in Call of Duty: Black Ops. Players are challenged to assassinate Castro in the first mission

Communist plot: The game – which went on sale in the UK this week – sees players take on the role of a special operative as he saves the US

‘What the United States government did not manage to do in 50 years, now it attempts to accomplish by virtual means,’ said an article on the website Cubadebate, where Castro regularly publishes opinion pieces.

The site was referring to the numerous plots to kill the Cuban president, which the Cuban government claims was a staggering 638 times.

On one hand, the game ‘glorifies the attempts that in an illegal manner the United States government planned against Castro,’ while on the other it ‘stimulates sociopathic behavior among American children and adolescents, the main consumers’ of those games, Cubadebate said.

 

 

Highly anticipated: Customers queue outside HMV’s Oxford Street branch hours before the game went on sale earlier this week

US attempts to assassinate Castro were approved during the presidencies of Dwight Eisenhower and John F. Kennedy.

Cuban exiles were responsible for most attempts on Castro’s life starting in the 1970s.

Castro, now 84, led Cuba from the 1959 revolution until he stepped down for health reasons in 2006. His brother Raul Castro is currently the president of the communist nation.

The latest installment of the hit Call of Duty franchise takes gamers inside the former Soviet Union and southeast Asia during the Vietnam War.

Call of Duty: Black Ops, from the Activision unit of France’s Vivendi, follows Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, last year’s biggest grossing console game with more than 20 million units sold around the world.

Expectations for the Cold War chapter are high: IT marketing firm IDC forecasts that 11.7 million copies will be shifted in the United States by the end of the year alone.

It is the seventh game in the series and the third to be developed by US-based developer Treyarch.
