If you woke up tomorrow, and your internet looked like this, what would you do?
Imagine all your favorite websites taking forever to load, while you get annoying notifications from your ISP suggesting you switch to one of their approved “Fast Lane” sites.
Think about what we would lose: all the weird, alternative, interesting, and enlightening stuff that makes the Internet so much cooler than mainstream Cable TV. What if the only news sites you could reliably connect to were the ones that had deals with companies like Comcast and Verizon?
On September 10th, just a few days before the FCC’s comment deadline, public interest organizations are issuing an open, international call for websites and internet users to unite for an “Internet Slowdown” to show the world what the web would be like if Team Cable gets their way and trashes net neutrality. Net neutrality is hard to explain, so our hope is that this action will help SHOW the world what’s really at stake if we lose the open Internet.
If you’ve got a website, blog or tumblr, get the code to join the #InternetSlowdown here: https://battleforthenet.com/sept10th
Everyone else, here’s a quick list of things you can do to help spread the word about the slowdown: http://tumblr.fightforthefuture.org/post/96020972118/be-a-part-of-the-great-internet-slowdown

#RIPEunB #PrayForLadiesCode #ImFineThankYou
We are so thankful that everyone is praying for Ladies Code. Maybe they weren’t big girl grup but after this tragedy for sure they’ll be known. It’s horrible that someone’s death and others’ bad condition can cause their popularity (what they wanted achieve by a hard work). We can only hope that one day they will smile and remaining scars will make them stronger not weaker. It’s important to support LC in such hard time and pray for their quick recovery. I pray deep inside that girls will be able to continue fulfilling their dreams, because there is nothing sadder than people with shattered dreams. #prayforladiescode
In a heartbreaking message posted by Dispatch, the media outlet has collected notes regarding the recent tragic death of EunB and Ladies’ Code’s car accident.
The notes read messages by EunB’s mother, showing her kindhearted and thoughtful nature in light of her daughter’s tragic death.
I wanna do a project to send to the girls for when they all recover. I want them to truly see how much Lavelies care about them. Whether you’re a fan or not, it would mean a lot.
To hear that a K-pop idol died scares the shit out of me. It is just another reminder that idol’s are human and death is a possibility at any time. Cherish the moments with your idols while they are still here. Don’t cause fanwars or bash idols for no reasons because one day those idols will be gone. Enjoy the music and give them as much love as you can because you never know when it’s too late.
