what’s up with “the sky”?
The house guests have been referring to “the sky” as a living entity. Wondering what’s up? They’re talking about the many banners being flown over the house by Big Brother watchers–fans and detractors alike. A group at Salon’s Table Talk, Media Jammers, flew the first banner (and a few others). Since that first banner, other groups and individuals have been flying banners regularly. Most groups or individuals call a Calif. aviation company, pay a few hundred bucks, and within hours, their message is being seen by the house guests. One of the groups paying to have banners flown, Banner Bunch, has compiled this list of all the banners flown over the house, from the first (“Big Brother is worse than you think. Get out now”) to the most recent (“Trust the sky…”).
