I’m looking for someone to transcribe Derrick J’s Victimless Crime Spree. This was a suggestion from Michael W. Dean last night on his podcast Freedom Feens. His reasoning was that if there are subtitles to the movie, then it can be translated into other languages. That would allow a much further reach for the movie and ultimately, the ideas of peaceful resistance and voluntaryism in action. I’d be happy to send a specially signed copy of Derrick J’s Victimless Crime Spree (Directors Cut) to any volunteer who transcribes the movie. Be the first to get in touch with me at derrickjfreeman (at) gmail.com.
This weekend, I have had the pleasure of sitting down and chatting with some wonderful people. First, Ernie Hancock of FreedomsPhoenix.com had me on his radio program to talk about the release of my movie, Derrick J’s Victimless Crime Spree on DVD. You can listen to that interview (without commercials) below!
Next I sat down with Darryl W. Perry of Peace Love Liberty Radio to discuss my latest project, Peace News Now. We also got into some of the most surprising parts of the “Crime Spree.” Listen and enjoy below:
Finally, I was delighted to be invited to participate in the Live Sunday Call-in show for the Freedom Feens with Neema Vedadi and Michael W. Dean. Those guys always crack me up. We had a hilarious discussion where I covered (of course) Victimless Crime Spree as well as Peace News Now. This show is unusual, however, in that it is the first and only time that I have publicly explained my situation with Adam Kokesh. What do YOU think? Enjoy!
For the last month, I’ve been delighted to produce what I believe is the best daily 5-minute newscast anywhere. You’ve heard it on LRN.FM, but have you subscribed yet? Subscribing to Peace News Now is easy, cool, and free.

Or, if you prefer audio only, you can subscribe on iTunes by clicking this link.
Below is the latest episode of Peace News Now. I usually include at least one story emanating from the Shire in each episode of PNN. This episode features James Cleaveland of FreeKeene’s Robin Hood fame. Enjoy!
I watched this short film by a young director who took the words of an innocent 6-year-old and made a terrific film. I highly recommend:
Adam Kokesh is now claiming that I am an extortionist and is deleting posts by others that expose the truth. While Kokesh censors you, I will never delete a comment on my facebook page, youtube channel, or website. If you haven’t already done so, read for yourself the email exchange in which Adam offers $450 in bitcoin.

I am co-hosting AVTM LIVE! tonight from 9pm-midnight Eastern Standard Time. I will be broadcasting live from the ADAM VS THE MAN Studios outside of Mordor (Washington, DC). You can watch and chat live as you listen by clicking this link or watching the video which is embedded below:
I look forward to bringing Stefan the very best of your questions. Feel free to tweet them at me (@derrickjfreeman) if you don’t have time to listen in.
Earlier this month, we featured Ballantine’s tshirtOS, a programmable tee embedded with an ultra-thin LED screen that could pose some serious competition for your smart phone–it displays tweets and even takes pics and posts them to your Instagram feed. The idea was conceived out of wearable tech company CuteCircuit and agency Social Club, who debuted this new film, directed by Kim Gehrig, showing how fabulous and sci-fi life would be if this shirt actually went into mass production. The short plays out like a modern day Weird Science, featuring a geeky duo who get in on some serious nightlife adventures while showing off the tee’s potential–yes, karaoke makes an appearance–before they get caught in an unsavory situation.
TshirtOS, for now, is just a prototype, but if enough fans show their support for it on the tshirtOS Facebook page, Ballantine’s will look into making the product available for real.
Things are going very well for PeaceNewsNow.com ever since I started the website back in November. I’ve begun a series of podcasts all under the head title “Peace News Now.” You can listen to the latest episode by clicking here. On Sundays, I host a one-hour program called “The Peaceful Resistance Report,” which covers the week’s top stories in the world of peaceful protest. Monday through Friday, I host a 5-minute podcast with a focus on civil noncompliance called “The Daily Peace.” On Saturday, I mix it up with a one-hour program called “As the World Burns,” which features shocking headlines reeking of dystopian nightmare. Here is a sample of Peace News Now:
Cool! I can’t wait to utilize this technology! At the very least, it will be helpful to avoid squinting while posing for photographs. From the Telegraph:
Ghent University’s centre of microsystems technology has developed a spherical curved LCD display which can be embedded in contact lenses and handle projected images using wireless technology.
“Now that we have established the basic technology, we can start working towards real applications, possibly available in only a few years,” said Professor Herbert De Smet.
Unlike previous contact lens displays, which are limited to a few small pixels to make up an image, the new technology allows the whole curved surface of the lens to be used.
One application suggested by the researchers is a “one pixel, fully covered contact lens acting as adaptable sunglasses”.
“This is not science fiction,” said Jelle De Smet, the chief researcher on the project, who believes commercial applications for the lenses will be available within five years.
“This will never replace the cinema screen for films. But for specific applications it may be interesting to show images such as road directions or projecting text messages from our smart phones straight to our eye.”
The innovation is the first step towards “fully pixelated contact lens displays” with the same detail as a television screen.
The lenses could also be used for medical purposes, for example to control the light transmission toward the eye’s retina in case of a damaged iris.
For cosmetic purposes, the lens could be used the iris of the eye a tuneable colour, allowing the user to change it to suit their mood.
