It looks like Kony (the warlord brought to the attention of many via the Kony 2012 campaign) is reportedly "in talks" with the Central African Republic governement to possibly surrender.
US officials expressed doubt that the new talks represented a long-awaited breakthrough. The US State Department said the LRA's top commanders had used "any and every pretext to rest, regroup and rearm, ultimately returning to kidnapping, killing, displacing and otherwise abusing civilian populations".

The streaming shows all of which are hosted from Turntable's SoHo studio try to recreate the live concert experience, straight down to asking fans to buy tickets ahead of time. Eleven shows have been run so far, with the last one bringing in $670 from 170 total viewers. While recreating the feel of a concert may be an exciting goal, Turntable.fm's users will likely...

Doing a cover song is always a huge risk and when you're covering a sentimental iconic emo band like The Get Up Kids, you better make sure you do the song justice. Chicago's Farraday automatically has a unique advantage, utilizing the strong vocals of its powerful frontwoman, Aubyn. Listen to their cover of "Action & Action" in the replies which comes from A Tribute To The Get Up Kids coming out on Pacific Ridge Records.
