If you haven't watched it yet, PLEASE do. Please take the time to really watch it, and try and empathise with these young people. Imagine if it were you, a sibling, a friend.... This man must be stopped.
Now, there have been criticisms not of the need to stop Kony, but of the Invisible Children organisation who have led this campaign. These criticisms primarily regard the organisations finances and military support. You can read these concerns here:
In the interests of fair representation, I today saw a response from the Invisible Children organisation, linked in a BBC article.

Think of the children, sir!That moment when you have a new OC prancing around in your head. He had a defined face and a full history. He adorns flaws and flaunts quirky characteristics.Think of the children, sir!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
You can tell people the name of his mother. You can instantly sum up the age difference between him and his older sibling. You can create improvised dialogue for him and tell how this newly born creation would react in varying scenarios.
But you can't pin a name on him.
HE MIGHT AS WELL BE NAKED AND, SIR, JUST WILL NOT DO. For there are underage OC's also occupying the space in my mind and I will not have him flaunting your bits and bobs in their faces. Now, he will have to retire to the back room of my cranium while I search every naming website avaliable to me while I try and find him a suiting title.
Good day, sir.
Random. I know. I'm sure one or two of you feel this pain.
The Power of MagicIt's past 3am, and I can't sleep.The Power of Magic4 years ago in Personal More Like This
-------The Power of Magic-------
When I was a kid, one of the greatest things possible to witness was magic. To me, my dad was a magician, no doubt about it. He could make coins appear from pockets and behind ears. He could guess what card you or your friend chose. He could blow cigarette smoke from his ears.
Actually, that last one was due to having punctured ear drums, so wasn't really magic... but you get what I mean.
Of course, now that I'm older, I know all these tricks myself. They're the easiest ones in the book. I've learned them myself, and occasionally blow the minds of kids who are now at the age I once was when I was being amazed by this apparent 'magic'.
That experience, of seeing something you believe to be utterly impossible become possible, is amazing. It's the reason I love illusionists and magicians, and the reason I've spent most of this insomniatic evening watching videos of Dynamo the magician.
Eventually with shows of magic

Chapter 5~ Addicted
A week after Dio and Aya's little love session, Dio couldn't stop thinking about that night and started to get excited again and grunted for Aya wasn't here. So he went to the showers and relieved himself while covering his moans with his arm. And once he was done taking a shower he got dressed into his night clothes for it was night and laid in bed waiting for Aya to return.
Aya then came home 1 hour later. She went into the bedroom to go see if Dio was awake but when she went in there he was sleeping. Or so she thought. What Aya didn't know is that he was waiting for her. Aya smiled and approached him and then as soon as she

You may be angry with me about Blazer's foals, but i ask that you read this before making any descions:
1: I know he said to spam me but before you even think about about it i feel that you deserve to hear the story- When blazer was hacked and said he was leaving i really did not know WHAT to do. But i thought that if Blazer was leaving i thought that he would like for them to go to a good home. So i gave them to someone i trusted (they asked that i don't mention there username cause they don't wanna get flamed). But when he came back i told him about the foals and he RUDELY demanded them back; Threating to USE ALL OF YOU LIKE HIS MINIONS (some friend huh?) and get ya'll to steal art and flame me. THE MOMENT i recieved this message i asked for them back from the previous owner and RETURNED THEM TO BLAZER. Then he turned on me LIEING to all of you saying "i just took th

Dio had Aya on the bed and was kissing her with a little force and he then smiled and put his tongue in Aya's mouth which made her gasp but she didn't know what to do but then automatically started moving her tongue with his and Dio dominated the french kiss of course and then he unlaced Aya's blue bow in the back of her dress which made her open her eyes and gasp but she then willingly let him and started taking off his shirt which his bare chest showed that he was working out (ooh la la ;3) and he smiled at her and completely removed her dre

British HumourToday, I wrote out a post of about 1,000 words or so about why people get offended by British humour, but shouldn't. I then deleted it. Why?British Humour4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Because I realised that in talking about the nature of British humour, and why we're able to happily joke about things like celebrity deaths, racism, sexism, tragedies like 9/11, wars etc. ... I'd end up having people getting upset because I've offended them.
I've saved myself the hassle of this by deleting the post.
All I will say is that, if you can't handle Shock Humour, then you should always be wary of watching any form of British comedy. It's part of our comedic culture.
Otherwise, just accept that you might be offended, and when you are....stop reading, close the video, or change the channel. It's that easy.

Once homeless Miami man earns a Masters degree
After several arrests, drug addiction and being homeless, a Miami man has overcome the odds to graduate from FIU with a Master's degree in social work.
Out of thousands of graduates, only one -- 50-year-old Aaron Alvin Sr. -- got a standing ovation at Tuesday night's graduation ceremony.
"I wanted to make sure I was in a position to help people and so I went ahead and got my Master's," Alvin said. "I just continued to pursue something that was bigger and better and ended up here."
Alvin was arrested several times for drugs, grand theft auto, and domestic violence. He was also homeless for a time.
He said he never,

Gettin' a Pee Cee 8DSo, a friend of mine has fabulously offered to build me a PC, which'll be much better than buying one pre-made from a PC store.Gettin' a Pee Cee 8D4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Once that's done, I'll actually be able to record gameplay (something which my laptop fails at) and will finally be able to get some Let's Plays! of me failing at various video games done. That, and doing Livestreams will be much easier too, as my laptop lags somewhat when it attempts that.
So yeah. Once PC is acquired, I'll be able to finally get stuff uploaded to TouchMyKeyblade. If I can think of anything else random to get up before then that my laptop can handle (bearing in mind that my laptop also isn't too fond of Movie Maker XD) then I'll do dat, too.
...That is all 8D
