Spread the word. Link to this post if you want. I have it unlocked so everyone can see it. Do everything in your power to get the word out and make this known to everyone.

GET INVOLVED. STOP AT NOTHING. THE WORLD MUST KNOW.

I dare you to stop scrolling through your dashboard. Stop checking your Facebook newsfeed that you’ve already checked two seconds ago. Stop updating your Twitter and seeing what your favorite celebrities are saying. Stop watching funny and nonsense videos on Youtube. Take time to educate yourself to MAKE A DIFFERENCE in this world. This is your chance! WATCH THIS VIDEO.

Let’s make JOSEPH KONY Famous!!

Who is JOSEPH KONY?

He is THE WORST LIVING CRIMINAL. He abducts children and makes them use guns to kill their own parents. He takes girls and forces them to be sex slaves. He calls his abducted children the Lord’s Resistance Army, AKA the LRA. He has abducted over 30,000 children and forced them to be child soldiers in Central Africa. He remains at large because he is INVISIBLE to the world. FEW know his name, even FEWER know his crimes. WE ARE MAKING HIM FAMOUS! Because when he is, the world will unite against him and demand his arrest.

We can help make a change. We can make a difference.

I feel so inspired. I feel the need to help and make a difference. This has to happen in 2012. We can’t let him go around and keep doing this to children in Central Africa. Let’s make his name known so he can be stopped. HE CAN NO LONGER BE INVISIBLE!

REBLOG IF YOU CARE.

This will not make your blog ugly, please take a moment to reblog and get the word out. SHARE THIS TO EVERYONE! Be a part of something BIG and when they catch this man, you would be able to say.. “I HELPED.”

LET’S START HERE ON TUMBLR.

Dear SPN-Fandom, dear fandoms all over the world,

in the last few hours, something amazing happened, the very reason why internet and fandom is so important.
A fellow fan is in trouble. She has Endometriosis, and basically is going to die if she canet get a surgery. But she has no insurance, which means, no money.
After only a few hours, over on tumblr and spreading to all the other social media sites, her friends collected about 8k already (they're aiming for 30k). My dash is exploding with messages from ALL fandoms, everyone donating 5$ or 10$ or whatever they can afford. Everyone is boosting the signal, offering to write, to draw, to do whatever they can to help.
Please do it too. Whether just spreading the word und donating some money. Let's unite our fandoms and help a girl to survive!


This is what I wrote this morning on my facebook page. By now, the magic didn't vanish, but spread even wider. Our very own Kim Rhodes got in contact with her to tell her about her doctor who treatet her for the same desease. Random Acts is spreading the word and our lovely cast on twitter is retweeting like crazy. Sashi is now up to 21k.

Please, spread the word, my dear flist, and help in any way you can! Thank you!!

here's the tumblr site for the donations: Because we're a family
here's Sashi's tumblr site: Sashi's tumblr
here's the facebook page: Donate for Sashi

you know, even if you don't have money right now or not many people to reblog this to, go take a look at those sites. You're gonna be OVERWHELMED with the amount of love that unites all our fandoms, and our SPN fandom especially! I can promise you I cried and laughed and was reminded all over again, that Family Don't End With Blood.

Please, Please take a minute to sign this petition!! I'm sure the more signatures we get, the greater chance the Obama Administration may listen to us.

(Taken most recently from amberdreams, slightly adapted.)

If you're from the UK and you believe in freedom of speech and an uncensored interenet, you really need to sign this petition. There are others floating about, but that particular one is the best way to ensure that your voice gets heard. It's hosted on the directgov website and addresses parliament directly. If it gets more than 100,000 signatures, it becomes eligible for discussion in the House of Commons.

Everyone's been getting so worked up over SOPA -- and rightly so -- that ACTA seems to have slipped under the radar. This is hugely problematic, because ACTA is a similar bill, but it has the potential to be far more damaging than SOPA ever could be.

Some people seem to have this misconception that ACTA is the 'European SOPA', but that simply isn't true. It's a global treaty, and it's already been signed by eight countries, including the US, Japan, New Zealand and Singapore. Europe votes on Thursday. If they vote 'no', the bill will have to be taken back to the drawing board and reformulated, which should buy us some time at the very least.

If you think this doesn't affect you, you're wrong. If ACTA passes, it could well signal the end of the internet as we know it, and that isn't an exaggeration. It's not just about watching movies and television online. If ACTA passes, sites like YouTube, Livejournal, Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook and even Google and Wikipedia could become impossible to maintain. ACTA would allow ISPs to monitor your net activity and cut off internet access for your entire household if one person is suspected of breaching copyright. Think Big Brother is Watching. I don't think I need to emphasise just how damaging it can be to be without internet access in this day and age, when we rely so heavily on technology.

It's not only bloggers and fandom that would be affected, either. Small businesses, independent film-makers and unsigned musicians who have previously found their niche online would also suffer hugely, and would be at risk of being bullied into submission by Hollywood and multinational corporations under accusations of copyright infringement. All those artists who found fame by uploading covers of songs to YouTube would never have had the opportunity to do so under ACTA, as those cover versions would be prohibited.

I know the internet has its problems, but to my mind it's the single greatest invention to come out of modern times, and it would be an absolute travesty if we were to lose that now. From a personal point of view, I can't even put into words how important this is to me. I've met some of my closest friends through the internet and online fandom, people whom I would likely never have met without it, and it's given me this amazing social support system. I don't want that to end here, and I want to preserve it for future generations so that they can have the same experience and opportunities I've been given through my online interactions.

I know that opinions on the seriousness of copyright infringement and online piracy vary wildly, but that isn't really the point. Internet giants such as Google are opposed to this bill, and it's pretty safe to say that they're not in favour of copyright infringment, as anyone who's ever had a fanvid taken down from YouTube will be painfully aware. Whatever your stance on copyright, this isn't the way to go about dealing with it. This is dangerous legislation that impeaches on some of our most basic human rights, such as the right to privacy and freedom of speech.

So if you're from the UK, please, please sign the petition. If you hail from elsewhere in the world, there may well be similar movements in your own country, but I think the most effective thing anybody can do right now is to keep talking about this. Talk about it on Livejournal, on Twitter, on Tumblr, on Facebook, and anywhere else you can think of. Make sure this issue is never far from people's minds. The internet is an amazingly powerful tool: let's utilise it while we still have the chance.

Please repost and spread the word :)

SAY NO TO ACTA!

Please consider reposting this, especially if you have a large proportion of UK flisties. And please consider spreading the word via other platforms: Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, your own personal network.

Unless you've been under a rock the last 12 hours or so..you'll know that lovely Jason Southard announced on his FaceBook(https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1307225376 ) page that he will no longer be playing with KANE :(

"Jason Southard
Hello all. I wanted to take a minute here to inform you that in the first of December 2011 I retired my position with Christian. After lengthy personal debates between my wife and myself, we came to the conclusion that It would be best for me to move on. This past decade has been a pleasure working with Christian and the many wonderful people he surrounds himself with. What a fantastic experience! We have made some great memories, friends, and music along the way. Often in life we get so busy that we pass up or put off things on the way to wherever it is we're trying to go. And along that way, after a certain point, we might realize that some things we once held as important, have now become less important in the face of more important things. In many ways it has happened to me and I am very humbled by the results. Proudly so! I have a few doors to walk through and what an exciting feeling it is! I guess in the wise words of the Great Gonzo... "There's hope for tomorrow, oooo, we're workin' on today". I am very excited that efforts today will bear great things for tomorrow. Thank you all so much for the kindness and gratitude you have shown me over the years. I do welcome you all to keep in touch for there will be more music and good times to come. Peace, Love, and Respect to you guys and gals. Thank you for your time."

i hope most (apart from the usual asshats)..will wish him well....he's such a talented guy and deserves success in however he wants to achieve that..i can understand his reasons..after all kane doesnt tour/play/record all year round and in these financially poor times a man (or woman) has to feed/clothe/house their families..family comes first....so i for one am saying ..nay yelling.....GOOD LUCK and for the last time..ONE.....TWO.....THREE...JAYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!
