Yes, the FCC has voted today to rollback Net Neutrality regulations, to no one’s great surprise. However, that does not mean all is lost…yet. Congress can review this egregious assault on the web and prevent it from happening by utilizing the Congressional Review act. Unfortunately, Congress only has 60 days under the CRA in which to act. Time is thus of the utmost importance here. Please continue the fight to protect the internet. Continue to reach out to your congress person. Let them know you dissent to ending Net Neutrality regulations. Let them know their reelection is dependent on listening to the will of their constituents.
Rupeethon strongly supports Net Neutrality; without it, we may be unable to bring you our particular brand of dumb, cringey entertainment. ISP providers are feverishly trying to get the FCC to remove laws and regulations that keep the internet free and open, all in order to make themselves more profitable by charging you, the consumer, for the services you already enjoy. Not only could you be hit by added fees or slowdowns to access various entertainment site you enjoy today, removing these protections could have a tremendous effect on the information and news you are able to access and consume. With a FCC director in the pockets of major corporations and the ISPs, our last hope is for congress to step in and protect a service that has become so immensely integral to our daily lives. The vote for repeal is set for Dec. 14th, 2017. Let your voices be heard; contact you congress representative today and let them know you strongly support net neutrality and a free and open interent.

That’s right folks! Episodes 1-5 of our first Let’s Play are now available for your viewing pleasure on the official Rupeethon YouTube channel. Please show your support by liking our videos and subscribing to stay in the know for future releases! New videos are added Tuesdays and Fridays! Exclamation points!
Rupeethon faithful! We are thrilled to finally be sharing some truly exciting news with you. We begin an all new save file as we debut our first official Let’s Play! Join us as we awkwardly, yet humorously, trudge our way through Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles.
The 2003 action role-playing game for the Nintendo Gamecube has players exploring a vast and extravagant world, plagued by a mysterious and toxic gas known as the ‘miasma’. Players must take control of a crystal caravan charged with the collection of ‘myrrh’, a magic liquid that powers mystical crystals. These crystals generate powerful barriers that keep the miasma at bay, protecting surrounding villages from the gas’s harmful effects. The game is beloved for its impressive visuals, enthralling music, exciting real-time combat and innovative multiplayer design utilizing Gamecube-GBA compatibility.
Join Rupeethon’s own Steve (playing as Sterv), Chrissy (Ris), Scott (Fawkes), and Jonathan (Slappy) as they take on classic Final Fantasy monsters and begrudgingly complete their quest to save the lives of their fellow villagers, including those of their less than supportive family members…maybe. New episodes will be released on Tuesdays and Fridays on the official Rupeethon Youtube Channel, so be sure to like, comment, and subscribe. We look forward to sharing in this new adventure with you!
How does a ragtag volunteer twitch stream in need of a shower
Somehow become a donor superpower?
How do we emerge victorious from the quagmire?
Leave the battlefield waving The Child’s Play flag higher?
Yo. Turns out we have a secret weapon!
A marathon you know and love that’s unafraid to step in!
