Boston College for Rusted Revolution has moved!!!

Attention to all: BC for Rusted Revolution has found a new internet home!

BCxRR has moved in with Rusted Revolution. All the same great content will now be under one shared roof!

Blog posts by our lovely Boston College staff will resume as usual on Monday, at RustedRevolution.com.

Wanna browse through the BCxRR archives? They’ll still be available here on this blog, though all content has also been transferred to the new blog home as well.

Thanks for your patience as we underwent a major site redesign — we are so lucky to have you all as readers!

Rusted Revolution is under construction!

Pardon the dust — Rusted Revolution and satellite blog BCxRR are under major construction.

BCxRR will be moving over to its new home at rustedrevolution.com, which it will share with its parent blog, Rusted Revolution. This means all the same great content will be under one roof!

New postings will be put on hiatus for the next couple of days while the site redesign happens. Until then, you can follow Rusted Revolution and BCxRR on their respective Facebook pages and Twitter accounts.

Stay tuned for great things ahead! We will announce when Rusted Revolution and BCxRR are back in business.

If you have any comments or questions, you can contact us at arustedrevolution@gmail.com in the meantime.

Thanks for your patience, we are so lucky to have you all as readers 🙂

Stop American Censorship

Congress is about to pass internet censorship, even though the vast majority of Americans are opposed. We need to kill the bill – PIPA in the Senate and SOPA in the House – to protect our rights to free speech, privacy, and prosperity.

In protest, tomorrow many major websites are going dark or are rumored to be going dark  for 24 hours — Google, Ebay, Wikipedia, Mozilla, Craigslist, Reddit, TwitpicLinkedin, PayPal, Yahoo, Xanga, Etsy, I Can Has Cheezburger network, and WordPress to name a few. Basically — don’t even bother trying to use the internet tomorrow. Here’s the complete list of sites that are protesting.

That means that quite possibly Rusted Revolution (the blog, store, twitter account and more) will be unavailable all day tomorrow. Not that we’re complaining. SOPA and PIPA would take away many of our basic rights and transform (and quite possibly ruin) internet as we know it.

Websites are going black on January 18th to save the internet. Join them by writing your senator and tell them you oppose PIPA. Join the strike here.

We will miss you, and we will see you back on the worldwide web on Thursday!


Coming Soon

BC x RR is still under construction.

Big things coming THIS MONTH.

Stay tuned. In the meantime, check out the main Rusted Revolution site for fashion, music, and mini features on our BCxRR staff.
