Leaderless Revolution for the 21st CenturyA little while ago, I read a book called The Leaderless Revolution: How Ordinary People will Take Power and Change Politics in the 21st Century by Carne Ross, a former member of the British Foreign Office and delegate of the UK mission to the UN who left his job after seeing how so-called "representatives" represent themselves and the interests of their biggest supporters (such as multinational corporations) rather than the people of the society who elected them or who they were appointed to represent. Ross believes that this removal of agency from the people themselves to representatives, and the alienation it causes, is responsible for much of the conflict in the world. Therefore, he supports a leaderless consensus-based directly democratic government, i.e., anarchism. He gives precedents for this type of government in societies from pre-industrial tribes to the anarchist communes of Spain in the 1930s, the latter being the subject of George Orwell's panegyric HoLeaderless Revolution for the 21st Century3 years ago in Personal More Like This
In _____ We TrustIn response to a recent petition, the phrase "In God We Trust" will stay on US currency. The reasoning included these points:In _____ We Trust3 years ago in Personal More Like This
"While the President strongly supports every American's right to religious freedom and the separation of church and state, that does not mean there's no role for religion in the public square."
"A sense of proportion should also guide those who police the boundaries between church and state. Not every mention of God in public is a breach to the wall of separation - context matters.
"That's why President Obama supports the use of the words "under God' in our Pledge of Allegiance and "In God we Trust' on our currency and as our national motto. These phrases represent the important role religion plays in American public life, while we continue to recognize and protect the rights of secular Americans. As the President said in his inaugural address, "We

Many of you are probably aware that we did a giveaway on Tumblr and Facebook a while back - don't worry we haven't forgotten about it.
We apologize for the delay; we were busy with preorders.
Tumblr winners have been notified, but there is a problem with Facebook due to privacy settings.
We could only see the list of people who shared the post AND had a "public" profile. And as you all know, many people have their Facebook on private because of security reasons. We didn't know this before the giveaway because we aren't that familiar with Facebook.
To make up for this, we are giving away
TOM is BACK!HOLY CRAP! I don't believe it Toonami is back!!! (I think)TOM is BACK!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I came home on Saturday night and turn on the TV, being 10:00pm Adult swim is on. And who is there to greet me on the tube...it was none other then TOM 3.0 from Toonami!
I about died from excitement. I think what happened was Adult Swim and Toonami hooked up for Saturday night premieres of classic Anime night.
They had all my favorite younger years Anime lined up. Dragon Ball Z, Trigun, Outlaw Star, Tenchi Muyo, and even the black and white Astro Boy!
I think Toonami is finally back! Reason why is because Tom 3.0 was talking about Mass Effect 3 and had all sorts of new updates to this timeline. I mean Tom 3.0 even cursed! He said things like "Badass" and "Bitches", something the old Tom 3.0 didn't say back in the day. It was weird hearing him say those things, but it felt so right at the same time.
I figured out that only on Saturday nights will Toonami be playing on. The other nights is regular old Adult Swim.

Edit 2: People have asked if your app has to be in AT style, since people have trouble drawing in the style. Well, worry no more, here's a helpful how-to! http://www.scribd.com/doc/14686737/How-to-Draw-Adventure-Time Click the download to see it, it has 16 slides and explains how to draw and apply the AT physics. Thanks so much to Fathix for providing it, I'm sure that everyone will benefit from it <3
Edit: I've been seeing a lot of people using umbrellas and swods for weapons, please be creative
Generally, an app drawn similar to AT style is preffered, but not required (however, keep in mind that an app drawn similar to AT style will have an edge over one that doesn't).
When making your character, please keep in mind that interaction with Canon
Dust and CobwebsGood morning creeps!Dust and Cobwebs3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've finally finished moving all of my strange antiques into the new house I'm sharing with Mr. Cain. We've painted, and installed all of our modern conveniences into this lovely circa 1900 house.
I've been waging war on the dust and cobwebs since moving, and the spiders... you would not believe. I found their mother lurking in the most frightening of all places... the hard-to-reach crevice behind the toilet. It was a horrific fight, she being about the size of my entire hand, but I've managed to purge the house.
The house itself is strange. It's not very big, but it's the biggest house I've ever lived in. It has mysterious tiny doors that don't open, a cupboard under the stairs, fireplaces in every room, and tall ceilings (which is good, because Mr. Cain has the proportions of Slender Man). I'm already imagining the kind of hobgoblins who lurk in the walls and the monsters in the attic because something has to be making those noises at night...
I'm looking forward

So yeah the next chapter in "All that is Fair Part 1" has been taking some time to complete. I am going to tell you why, it has been taking so frakkin long.
I last updated the story back in December during my last winter break from college. By last I mean that as the last winter break of my undergraduate career. After that I focused on completing my senior thesis. That included completing my experiments and writing up the results,write a grant, and I also prepared three different presentations of my work. This took me to Graduation at the end of May.
I know I should have put my story on Hiatus but I was scared that I would lose some you. I didn't complete drop the story I would work on it here and there. Then I had a little bit of time before my family, friends and fiancee showed up so I reviewed what i had done in those five months. To make it short I didn't like what I had written for

Waiting for the Snow to FallStill waiting for the snow to fall, doesn't even feel like Christmas at all. -Coldplay Christmas lights.Waiting for the Snow to Fall4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well it is finals week at my universty in the pacific northwest. The weather is cold but yet no rain or snow has fallen down low. Instead it decided to be bright and the air is kind of gunky looking. It is all rather confusing. But yet I find myself not being able to get into the Christmas spirit at all this year because of the weather.
Plus the heat doesn't seem to be working in the library, so it rather chilly inside. It would not be so bad if I was just studing in the library, but I also work at the library as well. Today I am pulling a double shift.
I would not be so bad if there was snow on the ground, and more of a holiday atmosphere around campus.
Enough ranting back to studying and working.

Let me tell you when you start to thinking of Zecora dialog, the rhythms just seem to come at you all the time, they come and the go paying no heed to your needs.
That last part was said in a Zecora voice within my head. How about you?
Luna EclipseWow that Luna episode. Not quite the voice I imagine little to high pitched and not as soft as I imagined. Well at lest one of our theories was correct she does seem like a trickster, and she just trying to fit in but a lot has changed in 1000 and she just trying what she remembers to be the norm. But that leaves one question what has she been doing for over a year? Unless the episode are not in chronological order in the airing time line.Luna Eclipse4 years ago in Personal More Like This
So this episode could in pony universe time it could have taken place right after she came back so ponies could have been still scared of her. But in the past season there is really no proof to support my theory in full. But it would explain a lot of the trouble she had during the celebration one year after her return.
By no means does this take away from the episode. It will be in my top five favorites. Viva the new lunar republic.
