Kryptonian Names

So I just got back from seeing Man of Steel (2013) and it was pretty good. I’ve gotta say, Faora Hu-Ul… badass.

If you go to their official website they have a Glyph Creator where you can make your own Kryptoanian family crest and see your name in Kryptonian. Before you even bother, El, Zor, and Ul aren’t even on there. Though if you just really want to be related to Zor-El then you’re in luck because Van is available which means you’d be relation on his mother’s side. The glyph generator includes 20 Kryptonian houses and I decided to go ahead and save all the glyphs and make a list of each of them since I couldn’t find one myself personally. I figured I’d share:

Ak
Art, Inspiration, Beauty

Am
Change, Cycle, Destiny

An
Law, Justice, Integrity

Da
Harmony, Synergy, Music

Dar
Treees, Roots, Ancestors

Do
Strength, Air, Battle

Em
End, Completion, Conclusion

Kann
Ideas, Communication, Speech

Ko
Peace, Reflection, Calmness

Lor
Journey, Evolution, Rhythm, Dance

Mer
Nature, Beasts, Environment

Nu
Renewal, Consistence, Stability

Ran
Influence, Relationships, Persuasion

Re
Ethics, Morality, Honesty

Tor
Secrets, Myths, Ambiguity

Ur
Attack, Crisis, Chaos

Van
Family, Hearth, Home

Veks
Beginning, Question, Birth

Zar
Abundance, Wealth, Success

Zu
Sacrifice, Surrender, Ritual

So what glyph did you get? Which are your favorites? Let me know in the comments section below!

Why was MegaUpload really shut down?

Why was MegaUpload really shut down?

In December of 2011, just weeks before the takedown, Digital Music News reported on something new that the creators of #Megaupload were about to unroll. Something that would rock the music industry to its core. (http://goo.gl/A7wUZ)

I present to you… MegaBox. MegaBox was going to be an alternative music store that was entirely cloud-based and offered artists a better money-making opportunity than they would get with any record label.

“UMG knows that we are going to compete with them via our own music venture called Megabox.com, a site that will soon allow artists to sell their creations directly to consumers while allowing artists to keep 90 percent of earnings,” MegaUpload founder Kim ‘Dotcom’ Schmitz told Torrentfreak

Not only did they plan on allowing artists to keep 90% of their earnings on songs that they sold, they wanted to pay them for songs they let users download for free.

“We have a solution called the Megakey that will allow artists to earn income from users who download music for free,” Dotcom outlined. “Yes that’s right, we will pay artists even for free downloads. The Megakey business model has been tested with over a million users and it works.”

Now, I dunno what to make of this. But, it certainly gives them a pretty good reason to go after them now. But! They did say that they’ve been planning it for 2 years now, so this may just be some crackpot conspiracy theory. Though, I’m sure it may have played a part. It’s definitely not like the entire 2 years of preparation was with the foresight of this though.

So anyways, there you have it. The plot thickens…
