Swipe File: V For Vendetta And Life

From Anoonymous:

Chron.com reports;

Anonymous has taken a new approach with a video featuring one of their members speaking Spanish dressed in a V For Vendetta mask. During recent protests, a member of Anonymous was kidnapped by the Zetas, a Mexican drug cartel known for beheading their victims.  So now Anonymous is threatening to publish a list of names and addresses of their businesses and associates, including corrupt police, unless their member is released. And a video address has been released using the viral natiure of the net to contact them.

"You made a huge mistake by taking one of us. Release him… We cannot defend ourselves with a weapon … but we can do this with their cars, homes, bars, brothels and everything else in their possession… It won't be difficult; we all know who they are and where they are located… We demand his release. If anything happens to him, you sons of bitches will always remember this upcoming November 5th."

Remember, remember the Fifth of November.

In Swipe File we present two or more images that resemble each other to some degree. They may be homages, parodies, ironic appropriations, jokes, coincidences or works of the lightbox. We trust you, the reader, to make that judgment yourself.  If you are unable to do so, please return your eyes to their maker before any further damage is done. The Swipe File doesn't judge, it's interested more in the process of creation, how work influences other work, how new work comes from old, and sometimes how the same ideas emerge simultaneously, as if their time has just come. The Swipe File was named after the advertising industry habit where writers and artist collect images and lines they admire to inspire them in their work. It was swiped from the Comic Journal who originally ran this column, as well as the now defunct Swipe Of The Week website.
