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.

A Brief History of Bluebird's IllusionAs any professor can tell you, the basis of understanding the present is fathoming the past. Sound like something out of an alchemical text? That is a pat on the back for me, then.A Brief History of Bluebird's Illusion3 years ago in Personal More Like This
But seriously, how did this whole Bluebird's Illusion phenomena start? Some nerds had free time and made a game. That is too basic. The story of Bluebird's Illusion is a drama, one meant to be shared with every generation of netizens, citizens of the Internet. Like any good legend, this game has a past surrounded in mystery for newcomers, but for those who lived it, common knowledge. This is the legend. This is the premier Fullmetal Alchemist doujin-soft. This is Bluebird's Illusion.
I will admit before I start that some of this is speculation. Since I was not a fan when the game premiered I have only second-hand sources and word-of-mouth to draw upon. If you read something that you know is wrong or find that something vital to the story is missing, please do tell me. I am most eager to listen. I mean

As I have noticed through journals around on dA many are upset about the new update where people can see what you put into your collections.
They dont see your normal favs.
As well as this is great exposure for those artists that get their stuff faved, some people don´t want people to see their feitshes or the like!
HOW DO I DISABLE IT SO PEOPLE CAN´T SEE WHAT I FAV/COLLECT!?
Simply go you your Favs, then into your COLLECTION FOLDER
1. CLICK ON COLLECTION OPTIONS.
2. CLICK DISABLE WATCHING.
And your done! Privacy is back! ♥♥♥♥
Hope it helps! :iconkissinguplz:

COLLIDEPLEASED READ... and buy this book!COLLIDE3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So fullmetal-punk, my amazing and wonderful boyfriend, has published his first book!!
I don't know how many of you have actually come into contact with Jer's wonderful writing style (through fanfiction), but his first book ever is coming out tomorrow~
This means so so much to him and is a huge step for him to start getting somewhere. I always knew he would go somewhere with his writing so this is his big start.
COLLIDE is an awesome story (that I helped write bahahah).
This book is being released online through Barnes and Noble as well as Amazon!

But when he falls in with bad apple Jesse Wesley, Hazard is suddenly shoved into the spotlight.

How to be a good subject for your photographer!You should try to:How to be a good subject for your photographer!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
- Instantly listens to quick prompts / direction.
- Be open to any critique mid or after shoots!
- Have a decent understanding of what the photographer is looking at (light/framing)
- Pose naturally and (if in Cosplay) act in character .
- Be confident for the duration of the shoot.
- Avoid being self concious.
- Be aware of the direction of light (to avoid unflattering shadows, etc)
- Loosen up! Literally. Shake your limbs and relax your muscles from time to time.
- Avoid squinting. If the sun is too bright you will naturally squint. Close your eyes and ask the photographer to do a count down.
- Throw ideas at your photographer. Be creative.
So there you go.. If you want to make life incredibly easy for your photographer try and nail the above points.
While I'm shooting I need 100% trust from my subject. I also can't have anyone disagreeing with my requests however odd they are (unless I ask em to do something dangerous, lol).
This completely breaks my creative flow
Ranger Quickie: Adult Swim Brings Back ToonamiFrom ANN:Ranger Quickie: Adult Swim Brings Back Toonami3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Network had gauged interest in block's return after temporary return on April Fool's Day!
Adult Swim, the cable and satellite network that is paired with Cartoon Network, revealed on Wednesday that it will bring back its Toonami programming block starting on Saturday, May 26. The network has not yet announced its lineup for the new block.
The company had asked its Twitter followers in April if they would want the block back. Cartoon Network temporarily brought back Toonami on April Fool's Day, with reruns of such anime as Dragon Ball Z, Mobile Suit Gundam Wing, Tenchi Muyo!, Outlaw Star, Blue Submarine No. 6, Trigun, and more. The marathon had even included newly produced bumper videos of Toonami's mascot T.O.M.
Cartoon Network ended Toonami in 2008 after an 11-year run.
Update: TV Guide lists Adult Swim's anime programming on May 27 as follows:
12:00 a.m. - Bleach
12:30 a.m. - Fullmetal Alchemist
1:00 a.m. - Durarara!!
