We Will Never ForgetMarch 16th is the anniversary of Rachel Corrie's deathWe Will Never Forget4 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Rachel Aliene Corrie (April 10, 1979 March 16, 2003)
was an American member of the International Solidarity Movement (ISM)
She died whilst acting as a human shield to prevent
the demolition of the home of local pharmacist Samir Nasrallah
The ISM said she had placed herself between the bulldozer
and a wall near Nasrallah's home
Members of the ISM said that she was killed by the Israeli bulldozer
and that there was nothing to obscure the driver's view
Rachel was a student at The Evergreen State College
She had taken a year off to travel to the Gaza Strip during the Second Intifada
SOPAA few months back I wrote a journal about an internet censorship bill that was looking to be passed in the congress. The bill was poorly written, but the broadness of the wording freaked a lot of internet dwellers out. People were scared their favorite websites would be censored or removed completely. Thankfully the bill didn't pass. Unthankfully a new version is going up for vote now and this time it's getting far more support.SOPA4 years ago in Personal More Like This
SOPA = Stop Online Piracy Act
Once again it's very broadly written and could have very serious implications if it gets passed. The bill is written with the expressed purpose of being able to take legal action against online piracy in foreign markets. It seems likely that the bill is meant to snub out piracy sites like ThePirateBay.org, but the wording is so broad that it's very possible that it could have serious repercussions elsewhere.
Yesterday the bill was supposed to be voted on, but it was delayed due to a filibuster. It's currently set to be voted

A simple truth: Lit artists need more exposure. It's a common comment heard through the lit community, and it is true. While groups are fantastic for feedback and limited exposure, there comes a time when you run across a piece that you truly feel needs to be given site wide exposure and acknowledgement.
Did you know you have the power to help make that happen?
Two resources run every day, offering site wide exposure to literary artists and writers, featuring them to their audience. Both are on a volunteer basis, and both rely on your suggestions to choose the features of that day. These are the Daily Lit deviations, and Daily Deviations.

"other people/normal people: let's have sex and party and drink and do drugs lololol
me: gonna sit at home blogging and watching anime and doctor who and sherlock and snacking"
1) Despite masquerading behind a veil of this 'innocent' self-described "quirkiness" it's actually pretty haughty and pretentious when looked at from another angle.
2) It reeks of blatant and unabashed special snowflakism (almost in the same vein as those other posts with, "i would rather prefer to stay online and being a fanboy/fangirl than doin drugs or havin sex and party liek most kidz my age reblargh if u agree").
Actually, the entire mentality reeks of this really distorted idea that one can't be a partier or drinker/smoker and simultaneously be a frequent internet user or enjoy "nerdy" or "geeky" pursuits as well. Do you honestly think, given this day and age and how widespread and necessary computers have become, that you're the only one "addic
Korra: When Extremes Meet - ThoughtsBefore I go into more depth on my review of the episode and my overall thoughts, I'd just like to say that this is the first time in ages that a television show (I don't watch tv very much), let alone an animated television show, has left me feeling so giddy and intrigued. I was practically rocking back and forth and bouncing off the walls by the time the credits for episode 8 rolled, like some obsessively hyperactive kid in an asylum with colorful candy-coated walls.Korra: When Extremes Meet - Thoughts4 years ago in Personal More Like This
That being said, I genuinely liked, no, LOVED and ENJOYED this episode far more than I did with episode 7 (which was also a pretty good). This is an episode where we get to see more bender-on-non-bender oppression play out (when before it was limited to mostly talk and bender triad activity) and it culminates with Tarrlok abusing his political power to place an unfair curfew on all non-benders while successfully arresting and imprisoning every member of Korra's gang. The highlight of this episode was mainly that we get to
Scary Stories Now With Less ScaryA lot of you may remember reading Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark at some point growing up, whether it was from your school library, from a bookstore, from friends or from family. You may also remember some of the unforgettably disturbing nightmarish artwork that helped said stories permanently stain the walls of your young mind (I certainly do. I once remember reading one of the Scary Stories tales that involved a man hammering a nail into the symbolic heart of a witch on a tree and the illustration of the scene right before where witch falls down dead from that story still sticks in my mind).Scary Stories Now With Less Scary4 years ago in Personal More Like This

Bring you to
Pull on your
& Let the tears
Love every shred
That makes you
Who you are;
If they are repulsed,
And the world doesn't
Seem to love you,..
Then lend yourself
One last hug
Before heaven entraps you

Consider this a draft... I want to work with this more: lengthen it and make it perfect. (I've been wanting to write something for a slam piece anyway, and this could be it with some good tweaking... )

FOR ANYONE WHO'S READING THIS A BIT LATE
This all happened about five to six months ago. Obsessing about this would be just silly, on either side. If you managed to find your way here by now and would still like to know what happened, I'll give you a quick summary.
There USED to be a BHB journal explaining everything that happened , but DA recently banned a bunch of groups for whatever fucking reason. Anyways, it turned out that Rai (Nincianda) was Kas all along and wasn't actually 13 and had been banned from DA I believe at least 10 times already? Anyways, she was caught and flipped the fuck out. Aisha was caught tracing and left DA forever, but she still uses tumblr.
Nincianda ended up being someone who drew badly but found out people thought it was cute for a 12/13 year old. She also ran around telling people crazy stories about how she was abused and other shit, but when

HIV+? No School for You!When many people consider the HIV/AIDS Awareness cause, they think about compassionate care and finding a cure. These are important issues, and should never be belittled or discarded, but HIV/AIDS Awareness and activism is about so much more than a focus on disease. It's a focus on human decency.HIV+? No School for You!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
In Philadelphia, PA (USA), where I live and love, HIV is still an epidemic. It's still spreading among African-American and black teenagers (especially young ladies) at alarming rates, and it's starting to grow steam again in the male, homosexual community after so many years of declining rates.
Worse, in a city that prides itself on a strong gay presence and a liberal community, fear still writes policy and discrimination, in ugly forms, still happens.
Observe: A young, HIV+ boy (14 years old) was

In this raffle happens something that wasn't happened to me : one of my close friends won ;v;
Around of deviantart there are many many many fake raffle/giveaway/contest that people did only for visibility and every time some of their friend won , I usually don't participate because it's tiring know to never have a chance.
In my previous raffles people I don't know won my prize and I was really happy for them , because everyone need to have the same chance of each other ;v; , this time I was really really surprised to see the name of my friend , I have to be really honest to you , I think to choose another name becase "oh no people can think I cheated" but this would be very dishonest and unfair to her and I
The Dark Knight Rises + Back from TripIf there's been any delay in response and activity from me for the past two weeks or so, it's because I've been away for a while.The Dark Knight Rises + Back from Trip3 years ago in Personal More Like This
That being said, I just wanted to give a quick run-down on some of my thoughts for Nolan's the Dark Knight Rises.
I wouldn't say TDKR was the 'best' superhero film I've seen 'ever,' but it's probably one of the better superhero films I've seen in a while (Avengers wasn't nearly as great as everyone else and their mothers made it out to be, and the Spider-Man reboot was just all kinds of terrible). I didn't care for Liam Neeson and Marion Cotillard's casting as Ra's and Talia. To me, it wasn't believable and Cotillard's obvious accent really didn't help this much (after the reveal, I couldn't take her seriously as Talia at all).
Whitewashing aside, however, I have more mixed feelings on Bane. I know only a bit of material about Bane from the comics, so I'm only just going with what little I know from there and mostly from what I saw of Hardy's portraya

I challenge you to write 50 reasons why you love yourself. Number the entries and start them all with, "I love myself because..."

Sometimes after such experiences, it's hard to think of why you love yourself, and that's why this challenge was created. It'll boost your self-esteem and make you realize what a beautiful person you really are
If you think this challenge is easy....I challenge you to go out there and do it
