6. Democracy NOW at the Folklore State Centre of Georgia საქართველოს ფოლკლორის სახელმწიფო ცენტრი

Clandestine and manipulative actions are currently being undertaken to put into place an unsuitable candidate as the Director of the Folklore State Centre of Georgia.

This is a result of yet another purge which threatens an emerging democracy. This petition calls for a clear, transparent and considered process to take place with consultation across a broad cultural community before any decisions are made.

The aim of the appointment ought to be to focus on the future of Georgian Folklore and how it is developed and represented on the world stage.

Staff rallies at Folklore State Center of Georgia
26.12.13 12:15.

The staff of the Folklore State Center of Georgia held a symbolic protest outside the office of the center today. They nailed the entrance door of the building with a banner today and presented their statement of five demands addressed to the Minister of Culture.

The staff of the center is objecting to the decision of the supervisory board of the center, which elected Giorgi Donadze as the director yesterday. They say both the staffing of the board and the election of the new director was carried out with violations and call on the ministry not to sign the decree on Donadze`s appointment.

The previous director of the center Giorgi Ushikishvili was dismissed from the position on the grounds of the violations revealed in the office by the state audit office. Giorgi Ushikishvili and the staff of the center assert that the processes are controlled by Anzor Erkomaishvili.

Whatever happened to DISTURBING THE PEACE and trying to live in peace? The rights of the tax paying public is being trampled underfoot to accommodate some street racers and public exhibitionists.

Please stand up and sign up.

12. W.A.S.P. for the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame

Sign this petition if you would like to see the metal rock band W.A.S.P. inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

W.A.S.P. HISTORY
The metal rock band *W.A.S.P. released their first record 29 years ago in 1984. Opening the door for the rock and roll hall of fame induction process in 2009.

W.A.S.P. started as Sister with Blackie Lawless and Randy Piper working together in Piper’s rehearsal studio Magnum Opus in Buena Park, California in 1979. In 1980, they changed the band name to Circus Circus and to W.A.S.P. in 1982. They signed their first major record deal with Capitol records in 1984 with Blackie Lawless, Randy Piper, Chris Holmes and Tony Richards and released there first self-titled album W.A.S.P. August 17, 1984.

W.A.S.P. PERPETUATION OF ROCK AND ROLL
W.A.S.P. has demonstrated for 31 years that they have influenced an entire genre of music titled “heavy metal” with massive sounds, heavily amplified distortion, extended guitar solos, and emphatic beats.

They demonstrated unquestionable musical excellence in 1985 by supporting The First Amendment of the United States Constitution protecting the Freedom of Speech and Expression against the PMRC (Parents Music Resource Center) who wanted to censor their lyrics. W.A.S.P. continued to distribute albums without censorship by being the first group in music history to apply a warning label to their record that reads, “The lyrical content of this record may be considered offensive”.

W.A.S.P. contributions to the development and perpetuation of rock and roll include dual guitars, stage antics, shock rock themed images, lyrics and the shear energy of the stage live shows. Also, an exceptional contribution is Blackie Lawless’s innovation and superiority in style and unique technique in his vocals that have spawned other artist’s for three generations worldwide.

About the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Criteria
The induction criteria for performers in the Rock and Roll Fall of fame are as follows: Artists become eligible for induction 25 years after the release of their first record. Criteria include the influence and significance of the artist’s contributions to the development and perpetuation of rock and roll.

We need to hear from millions of W.A.S.P. fans worldwide. Pass on the word to your friends who love W.A.S.P.

You may copy the petition below, word for word. Send your letter to the following address: Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation, 1290 Avenue of the Americas, New York, NY 10104

*Disclaimer: Neither the group W.A.S.P., Blackie Lawless, Randy Piper, Chris Holmes, or Tony Richards are in any way connected with the creation of this petition. This is the result of independent W.A.S.P. aficionado’s who have taken the initiative to voice their choice of inducting the metal rock band W.A.S.P. into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

15. Against the scam of the V.I.P made by weird-world

During the GazettE's show, two kind of places had been sold: regular and V.I.P. They both were expensive, however we absolutely wanted to put an end to this 6-year wait and to see at least this band live. We were joyful and very happy.

Some of us paid about 100 euros in order to have favours. We didn't expect great things, but maybe goodies or these kinds of things. We weren't expecting much, but not only a little cardboard around the neck and an hour earlier than the others.

I spoke to different leaders who told me that it was the group "weird-world" which was in charge of the organization in Europe. So I tried to speak to a man who worked for weird-world, and he was vague, bothered and he wasn't able to give me one explanation.

We can't blame it for the price, and we don't want a scandal which may scare the GazettE (after all, we are all eagger to see them again in our countries!)

That is why I decided to create this petition. In order to get an apology and explanations.

No matter if you had a regular or V.I.P ticket, if you didn't go to the concert or if you don't live in Europe. We only want support!

16. CHAMPAGNE ANIMAL

Biography

Fresh from being shortlisted to the final 10 in the ‘Hotpress Lift Off Competition’, Champagne Animal are quickly becoming one of Irelands most exciting unsigned bands.

Siobhan Lynch (Lead Vocal), grand-daughter of Bobby Lynch of the Dubliners, founded Champagne Animal in 2010. Siobhan is a member of the Dublin Gospel Choir whose influence can easily be detected in her vocal presence. Her vocal ...styling has been compared to that of Beth Ditto and Cyndi Lauper.

After some changes in line-up, Champagne Animal eventually came to form with bassist Frank McKenna, originally from the depths of hard rock, and Daragh Armstrong, a drummer of unique talent and skill who attends the Brighton Institute for Modern Music in Dublin.Together they have set themselves the challenge of world domination!

The unique, yet accessible, sound of Champagne Animal stems from their eclectic tastes and experiences in music, which range from rock to gospel, pop to classical. This broad spectrum of styles result in a sound that is fresh, punchy and emotionally charged.

Having been likened to artists such as Florence and the Machine, Adele, Portishead, The Gossip, The White Stripes and even Led Zeppelin, Champagne Animal have come up with their own twist on the indie soul sound. Just like the iconic artists above, Champagne Animal are putting their own stamp on the music world.

While they have been together for only a short amount of time, they have managed to pack in a lot and have secured themselves some much sought after slots, such as appearances at Electric Picnic, Indiependence, Vantastival, Strawberry Fest, Cahersiveen Music and Arts festival, The Ruby Sessions, The Sunday Roast, Balcony TV, Whelans, The Workman’s Club, and many other gigs across the country.

The Animals are busy completing EP number 2 and look forward to presenting their first single from it to the public this coming November. Check back for official details soon..

‘Their live set up is just something else. Siobhan struts about the stage belting out spine-shudderingly exceptional vocals while the rest of the band are tight and complimentary, the machine to her Florence’

-James Hendicott, Goldenplec

They may have met at the Dublin Gospel Choir, but there is nothing happy clappy about them...soaring vocals reminiscent of heart welded to Cyndi Lauper, atop a heavy guitar-rock squall that takes no prisoners. This is all gloriously OTT stuff that demands to be played at maximum volume.'

-Jackie Hayden, Hotpress.

We're aiming to give young people an outlet to express themselves; whether it's through, music, dance or drama in after school clubs.

22. EXO Fandom Name and Color

As fans of EXO, We feel that after over a year, we deserve to be given an official fandom name and color to identify with. Having a fandom name and color is important to many fandoms in Kpop, as it makes fans feel more bonded and unified to share a single identity.

Also, having an official fandom color will better encourage fan support for their idols. Such as, having a specific colored light stick to represent our fandom at concerts and such.

23. Darker than Black Season 3

With the ending of the phenomenal second season of the called anime series Darker Than Black, many loyal viewers were disappointed with the lack of answers given to the amount of questions generated by it’s ending.

So we, disappointed but still loyal fans and viewers, come here to state our point and to try to have BONES and the director Tensai Okamura to listen to our only wish.

We agree that not only the ending was too unclear and left too much in open, but also showed us a new tipping point in the story that had origin in the ending chosen for the 2nd season, and which is still a hidden incognito for all the DTB fans around the world. We see in this, a very new opportunity to improve the story and to develop the concept within it, as new mysteries peeked in the very ending of Season 2, and they seem to be just waiting to be revealed. Such a mysteries that had origin through the following facts told at the finishing part of Season 2:

- America invaded Japan, in hopes of regaining their status as the World superpower.

- Misaki, Madame Oreille, Mao and co. formed a group to resist to the Americans, called The Syndicate.

- A child woke up inside Hell’s Gate and is seen to be able of killing many humans.

- It’s assumed to be the child of Izanagi and Izanami, Kagutsuchi, the prophesied disaster to befall the World.

- Hei is alive and has his powers back.

• Through this topics, we find that the story was never completed, as we don’t know how this battle against Kagutsuchi ended. If the humans were save or how the child of Izanagi and Izanami was killed.

• Looking for other points and questions, we found out that although the whole 2nd season was all about it, no one actually figured out for sure who was Izanagi. If he was Hei or Shion we would only know if we saw Kagutsuchi.

• Other hidden points in the story were Yin’s wish and the fact that we never got to know if she really died, if Hei was able to kill her, or he just rescued her.

Also a very important fact, but this one related to both seasons:
- We still don't know what happened on Heaven's Gate. - What was Hei's link with Amber?
- How he got involved?
- How he got his powers?
- Why it's said that what happened in Heaven's Gate was BK201 fault? Hei's fault? His sister's fault?

All this, takes us to the same conclusion: There’s no reason why an anime as successful as Darker Than Black, should be shoot down by BONES when it has now the greatest opportunity to conquer more fans with a whole new season.

That's why we are here. That's why we are spreading this petition through internet:

Right now, there is a lack of federal funding for arts programs. Furthermore, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL), school budget crunches have been a trend over the past couple years and span the entire nation.

These two factors place arts programs in danger of being cut. In addition, laws that emphasize standardized testing take away time in arts classes.

However, various studies have shown that music education can increase intellect and makes students happy.

28. Cher for Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame was created 25 years ago for the purposes of "recognizing the contributions of those who have had a significant impact on the evolution, development and perpetuation of rock and roll" (RRHOF).

Cher (born Cherilyn Sarkisian) has not only been a vital player in the growth and evolution of music genre and style, but was and is the INSPIRATION for celebrated artists worldwide, including already inducted artist, Madonna.

Cher has been at the face & in the heart of rock and roll for every decade since the 1960's from her first industry job as a backup singer to her latest album announced for release September 2013. That is more than 50 years of talent, perseverance and dedication.

Cher has more than paid her dues for this award and it is long past time for her to have received recognition of those accomplishments from her peers.

This petition is also affiliated with 'The Lovelie Project 2013'; a collection of art, multimedia, letters, tweets et. al. planned for presentation to Cher at her Toronto stop for the 'Never Can Say Goodbye' Tour (TBA).

30. End YouTube's copyright school!

Over two years ago, YouTube, under pressure from lawmakers and the music industry created a "copyright school" and released a video along with it.

Jodie Griffin of Public Knowledge writes that those YouTube users who are "alleged to have violated copyright law must watch a video discussing some of the basics on copyright law...pass a quiz or risk having their account deleted" and the "school" is one-sided as "users accused of infringing copyright must take the course, but copyright owners accused of making false or fraudulent infringement claims don't." (http://www.publicknowledge.org/blog/my-first-day-youtube-copyright-school) Additionally, Raymond J. Dowd writes on his blog that the video doesn't "mention the public domain...[and] is indoctrinating children into fear of quoting materials by authors living and dead by showing images of corporal punishment meted out by judges."

Additionally, Dowd notes that "YouTube's video doesn't mention copyright law's grounding in the US Constitution, nor the purpose of copyright law." (http://copyrightlitigation.blogspot.com/2011/04/fair-use-fridays-youtube-flunks.html) Let us unite together and stop this copyright school.
