You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

Ron Paul Kicking Obama Out of The White House

Ron Paul kicking Obama out of the White House has much of a chance of happening, as Rick Perry having Texas secede from the Union.  I know it's laughable, but for the 2nd year in a row Ron Paul has managed to come away the winner at the Conservative Political Action Committee conference (CPAC) held in Washington, DC.

Ron came out of the conference with 30 percent of the straw vote, with Mitt Romney coming in second with 23 percent.  All the other nuts, like Ricky Perry, Sarah Palin, Donald Trump, Chris Christie, Michele Bachmann, Mitch Daniels, Mike Huckabee, Rick Santorum and Tim Pawlenty came out with less than 7 percent of the vote.

Commentator Franz said it best when he stated, "Ron Paul is for freedoms as long as it doesn't infringe upon his right to discriminate. Like most Libertarians.  What they mean by live and let live, and less government is Fuck everyone else as long as government doesn't touch my money and my rights. Fuck Ron Paul, his whole platform is undermined by his permissiveness in reserving full protection of the law and equal economic distribution only for straight Christians."

Alex Pettyfer and Two Girls Slobbering All Over Each Other

I guess whatever floats his boat, but couldn't he have had two guys kissing instead of two girls?

The "Beastly" star who has been making the rounds all over television and Hollywood seems to have a thing for same-sex kissing, with girls that is.  The video features him all wet and juicy while two girls kiss and run their hands all over him.  The video was done by L.A. Photographer Tyler Shields, a known celebrity photographer.

Take a look and tell me what you think.

Health & Fitness: The Spartacus Workout

So how do you get your body to look like the characters/actors in Spartacus? How about by advertising on Facebook that you can have your body look like a gladiator in no time?  That's exactly where this workout is derived from. A forum titled SPARTACUS BLOOD AND SAND outlines the Spartacus workout

I have included the workout in my blog, so get to it, what are you waiting for? 

This cutting-edge circuit routine will strip away fat and define every muscle in your body.

To create the Spartacus workout, we chose 10 exercises that collectively work every part of your body, and then placed each at a 60-second station, in order to challenge your heart and lungs as well as your muscles. The final product: A high-intensity circuit that’s designed to burn away fat, define your chest, abs, and arms, and send your fitness levels soaring. So you’ll sculpt a lean, athletic-looking body—while getting in the best shape of your life.

Do The Spartacus Workout 3 days a week. You can either use the routine as your primary weight workout, or if you’re already in great shape, you can use it as a “cardio” workout on the days between your regular weight workouts.

Perform the Spartacus Workout as a circuit, doing one set of each exercise—or “station” in succession. Each station in the circuit lasts for 60 seconds. Do as many reps as you can in that duration (with perfect form), then move on to the next station in the circuit. Give yourself 15 seconds to transition between stations, and rest for 2 minutes after you’ve done one circuit of all 10 exercises. Then repeat 2 times. If you can’t go for the entire minute on an exercise, go as long as you can, rest for a few seconds, then go again until your time at that station is up. This will allow you to customize the workout to your current fitness level. Also, if using weights makes some exercises too difficult, simply perform the same movement without holding the dumbbells.

Station 1: Goblet Squat

Grab a dumbbell and hold it vertically in front of your chest, with your feet slightly wider than shoulder-width apart [A]. Keeping your back naturally arched, push your hips back, bend your knees, and lower your body until the tops of your thighs are at least parallel to the floor. Pause, then push yourself back up to the start. If that’s too hard, do a bodyweight squat instead.

Tip: Lower your hips as deep as you can.

Station 2: Mountain Climber

Assume a pushup position with your arms completely straight. Your body should form a straight line from your head to your ankles [A]. Without allowing your lower-back posture to change, lift your foot off the floor and slowly raise your knee toward your chest [B]. Return to the starting position, and repeat with your left leg, alternating back and forth each repetition.

Tip: Lift your leg as if you’re climbing a mountain.

Station 3: Single-Arm Dumbbell Swing

Grab a dumbbell with an overhand grip and hold it in front of your waist at arm’s length. Keeping your lower back slightly arched, bend at your hips and knees and swing the dumbbell between your legs [A]. Keeping your arm straight, thrust your hips forward, straighten your knees, and swing the dumbbell up to shoulder level as you rise to standing position. Now swing the weight back and forth. At the 30-second mark, switch arms.
 Tip: Use momentum to swing your arm up.

Boston Legal - Most Missed Show Hands Down, But wait...

If you were to ask me which show in the last 5 years I missed the most, I would tell you 'Boston Legal.'  The show was created by one of the best American screenwriters and television producers this country has ever known, David E. Kelley.

Ryan and I watched every episode, and over the past several months purchased all 5 seasons on DVD.  Ironically enough, I have watched every show he's created.

Each show he's written and produced has won hundreds of awards, from Emmy's to Oscar's, Golden Globes to Peabody awards, this man has won them all.

Unbeknown to me, Kelley created a show right under my nose, without me even hearing about it, reading about it, or watching a trailer about it.

The creator of Ally McBeal, L.A. Law, The Practice, Picket Fences, Chicago Hope, Boston Public and Boston Legal introduced us to his new show, Harry's Law which premiered on January 17th of this year.

From NBC's website:
"Kelley weaves his rich storytelling into a new legal dramedy starring Academy Award winner Kathy Bates in the title role - about how people can embrace the unexpected and other curveballs that life can throw at them.
Harriet "Harry" Korn (Kathy Bates) doesn't believe things happen for a reason, but she discovers that they sometimes do. A curmudgeonly ex-patent lawyer, Harry is abruptly fired from her blue chip law firm, forcing her to search for a fresh start. She finds it when her world unexpectedly collides, literally, with Malcolm Davies, a kind-hearted college student who desperately needs Harry's help with his pending court case, and he subsequently goes to work for her.
Harry soon finds her balance as well as new offices in an abandoned shoe store just as legal hotshot Adam Branch accidentally hits her while driving. Inspired by Harry's no-nonsense understanding of the law, Adam decides to take leave of his shiny corporate firm to go and work with her. Harry, Adam and Malcolm - unlikely but kindred spirits - along with the help of Harry's shoe-savant assistant, Jenna, are now ready for whatever walks in through the doors of their unique establishment - Harriet's Law and Fine Shoes.
I have included a few short clips of the first 4 episodes and I'm so drawn to this already.  If I can't convince Ryan to watch this with me, then I'm alone on the net. The show definitely reminds me of David E. Kelley's, Boston Legal, with the possibility of it being greater.

Outrageous Ads - Issue No. 1

click to enlarge
"Fill your desire for something long, juicy and flame-grilled..."  In 2009, Japan received a lot of flak for releasing this Outrageous Burger King ad.  Either the U.S. is doing something wrong or Japan is doing it all right.

Burger King's intent was to introduce the new "BK Super Seven Incher".

"Yearn for more after you taste the mind-blowing burger that comes with a single beef patty, topped with American cheese, crispy onions and the A1 Thick & Hearty Steak Sauce," the ad concludes.

I don't know about you, but with that woman eyeballing that sandwich like she's about to swallow something big, and I don't mean in it in a PG way either. What was the Burger King in Japan trying to suggest here?

All I have to say is...  That is one Outrageous Ad!

OMG Hilarious!

There's nothing more I enjoy everyday than a good chuckle.  And the Cyanide and Happiness comics do it for me. I love them guys.
