This Thursday, November 21st on SuicideGirls Radio, hosts Nicole Powers and Juturna Suicide will be joined in studio by investigative reporter Jason Leopold, documentary filmmaker Brian Knappenberger, and SG political correspondent David Seaman.

In the first hour of the show we’ll be getting the inside scoop on Jason Leopold’s series of stories for Al Jazeera based upon the secret diaries of Guantanamo prisoner Abu Zubaydah (see part one, two, and three). Zubaydah, who is a Saudi Arabian citizen, was the first high value detainee captured after 9/11. He was arrested in Pakistan in March 2002, and, as a guinea pig for George Bush’s torture program, was waterboarded 83 times.

During the second hour we’ll be exploring the case of Jeremy Hammond, a hacktivist who was sentenced to 10 years in jail in a New York court last week. We’ll be chatting to those familiar with the case, including Rachel Allshiny, who has provided prison support to Jeremy since his arrest in March of 1012, and popular Blog Talk Radio host and twilebrity Vince Tocce aka VinceInTheBay, who provided compelling victim testimony during last Friday’s court hearing.

You can listen – and watch – the world’s leading naked radio show live on Thursday nights from 6 til 8 PM at our new state-of-the-art all digital home: TradioV.com.

You’ll also be able to listen to our podcasts via Stitcherdownload the app now!

About Brian Knappenberger | @knappB

Brian Knappenberger is perhaps best known in the online community as the director of We Are Legion: The Story of the Hacktivists. His latest project, The Internet’s Own Boy, follows internet activist and programming pioneer Aaron Swartz from his teenage emergence on the internet scene and involvement in RSS and Reddit, to his increased interest in political advocacy and the controversial actions he allegedly took in downloading nearly four million academic articles from the online service JSTOR. The film, which is currently in production, explores Aaron’s arrest, the prosecution’s tactics in bringing the case to trial through the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, and the impact a seemingly small hacking gesture had on Aaron’s life and the future of information access on the internet.

This week’s SG Gamer of the Week is Jeckyl. She is a hardcore girl that has a not-so-secret nerdy side to her. Jeckyl loves Star Wars and owning face in Call of Duty. I talked to her about some of her favorite games and what she thinks of Disney taking over the Star Wars franchise.

So tell me about your SG nickname, Jeckyl. The first thing that comes to mind is Doctor Jeckyl…

Yeah that’s exactly where the name comes from. My Suicide Girls persona is sort of like my alter ego, like a Jekyll and Hyde thing. I like to think that Jeckyl is the opposite of me and that, as Jeckyl, I get to act out all the things I’d be too shy to do as myself.

What are some of your favorite games of all-time?

Alice: Madness Returns, Super Mario Brothers, and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.

What about favorite current games?

Black Ops 2, Assassins Creed 3, and FIFA 13.

So I take it you are a soccer fan? Do you like any other sports?

I am yes. Soccer players are very nice to look at. =P Occasionally I’ll watch rugby or hockey, but I’m really more into roller derby. It’s my favorite sport!

PS3 or Xbox 360?

PS3.

Are you into online gaming or are you more of a campaign type girl?

Online. I like to kick ass.

I’m sure all the Black Ops 2 players reading this will want to know, what’s your k/d?

1.75. I’ve been thinking of getting it tattooed on my arm as a testament to my awesomeness.

Your profile says you live in South Africa. Tell me about what it’s like living there from a gaming perspective. Do video games cost more there? Does the internet suck?

The internet is a real pain here. It went down about three times today already. I don’t think games are more expensive but some games we don’t have yet so we have to order from overseas and shipping can get pretty pricey. Gaming seems to be growing here though, we even have an annual gaming convention called Rage where we get to play and sample all the latest stuff, it’s really rad.

You mentioned Star Wars: The Force Unleashed was one of your all-time faves, does this mean you are a huge Star Wars fan in general?

I am, yes, a closet fan though. Being a nerd kinda contradicts my hardcore alternative image. But Star Wars is a classic, and I’m a sucker for the classics. Also Hayden Christensen is a dish.

Of course you know what I have to ask next. Favorite Star Wars movie?

I really liked The Clone Wars but with some reservations. The Clone Wars animated series was surprisingly good, too. Much better than the movie. Yoda was pretty kick ass.

How do you feel about Disney acquiring Star Wars?

I’m actually kind of excited to see what Disney does with it. I really lost faith in Lucas Films after a few glitches they passed off as movies these last few years. I think it’s a really awesome way to introduce Star Wars to a newer generation that grew up without it. And really nothing beats Star Wars on the big screen so I’m definitely looking forward to next movies!

If you could make your own video game, what would you make?

Probably a cross between Black Ops 2 and Assassin’s Creed 3. It would be really cool to combine the storyline and killing styles in Assassin’s Creed with the machinery from Black Ops. People’s minds would melt from awesome overload.

Following the release of the Feel EP, SWIMM began playing a number of energetic DIY shows in California, New York and Florida, building a rep for an experiential live show.

After 12 years of being the weirdest, sexiest corner of the internet, SuicideGirls has taken down the site it launched in 2001 and launched a new responsive website, which went live on October 8, 2013.

With over 2 million unique visitors a month and combined iOS and Android traffic now
 making up more then half of the visits – a trends that’s continuing to grow at 4% a month – the new responsive layout is designed to deliver photos, videos and conversations as quickly and easily as possible regardless of the device being used to visit SuicideGirls.com.

“It’s a rare opportunity to completely rethink and redesign a 12 year old website from the ground up. Instead of creating a separate mobile and computer product, we decided on one completely responsive product that would look beautiful on any screen: phone, tablet or computer, retina or lo-res. We built the new SuicideGirls with no bitmap images other then the photos our community upload, to ensure all the bandwidth was being used delivering content,” says Courtney Riot, who has been the Art Director of SuicideGirls since 2004.

Riot worked with world-renowned responsive design guru Mike Kus and cutting edge developers The Foundry Interactive, to redesign and develop the new product. The new site is 100% CSS, with retina quality images and a slew of new integrations with existing social juggernauts like Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

“Every comment, every blog, every post, every group, every photo and every video that our nearly 1,000,000 members have added to our community over the last 12 years is still there and part of the new site, just presented in a way that can be accessible instantly from any device,” says SuicideGirls founder, Missy Suicide. “We are actually going back through the tens of thousands of photo sets and re-uploading them in HiRes so even photos that were published on our site in 2002 will now be crisp and beautiful on a Retina iPad.”

The new website launch is also in conjunction with the SuicideGirls Blackheart Burlesque Tour currently taking place throughout the U.S. this fall. For more information and tickets visit BlackheartBurlesque.com
