It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? 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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Yes, I Hold It Against Her

Let's see...

Do I hold it against her?  YES!!! 

I hold it against her for the simple fact that she wasn't able to impress me as much as I really wanted her to.
Can you say product placement much?

About 37 seconds into Britney's new video, we get a shot of her new perfume "Radiance."  She sprays it on herself and around 12 seconds later introduces us to "Make Up Forever," the makers of Aqua Cream Waterproof Cream Shadow.

Later, Britney uses the dating site "PlentyOfFish.com," and if that isn't enough, a hot guy appears on a "Sony" monitor.  It's nothing new really; she's used product placement before.  Most notably in the music video for her single "Circus."

The music video was "okay" but not what I was expecting after 13 days of teasers. If you want to see her it again, you can check it out down below, or check out this version I like a lot more.

Interesting Concepts - Wolverine?

I thought this was really cool and had to share.

Wolverine or 2 Batmans?

OMG Hilarious! - Babies

LMAO. Just when you thought you had it all covered with the Birds and the Bees, Cyanide and Happiness brings you to your knees. LMAO again!

"What's Morally Wrong With Homosexuality?"

The title to this post is in reference to the DVD presentation written and produced by the young Dr. John Corvino.  He holds a Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Texas at Austin and is Associate Professor of Philosophy at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan.

I thoroughly enjoyed the extended trailer provided on his website and have included it down below.

In it, John answers the following questions: Is homosexuality unnatural? Does it threaten society? Are gays and lesbians "born that way"--and does it matter either way?  He provides humor to his dialouge which makes the presentation quite remarkable.

John on "The Words We Use"

Heterosexual people we talk about relationships; Homosexual people we talk about sex. We say heterosexual people have 'lives';  homosexual people have 'lifestyles'.  We say heterosexual people have a moral vision;  homosexual people have an agenda.  The words we use to talk about these things really effect our way of thinking about them.

John on "Biblical Condmenation?"

I mean when we look to that Judeo, Christian Bible we find some things that actually sound pretty negative with respect to same-sex relationships.

The Book of Leviticus says "man shall not lie with man as with woman, it is an abomination unto God." Of course the Book of Leviticus calls a number of other things abominations that we don't tend to pay attention to quite as often. 

The Bible suggests that those who divorce and remarry should be put to death. Why? Well, because the New Testament defines divorce as adultery, the Old Testament prescribes death for adultery.

The Bible suggests that slavery is morally acceptable. And I say, the Bible contains no error, what are you going to do with those slavery passages? And you know what the people say to me? They say, 'John, you are pulling those passages out of context; you can't just take passages out of the Bible and quote them as if they mean the same thing today as they did for the people of the time. You can't just pull the pages out of context.'

And I say, well wait a second, if it is not okay to do that with the slavery passages, why is it okay to that with the homosexuality passages?

Take the time to watch the trailer and if you wish to purchase it you can visit his DVD website at http://www.gaymoralist.com/

Post Secret Fridays - Issue 047

PostSecret is an ongoing community art project where people mail in their secrets anonymously on one side of a postcard.

Dead Island

I'm not into video games like my partner Ryan, but I'd have to say that the trailer to this game is quite remarkable.  I definitely wouldn't watch it if you have a weak stomach. It was made for all those zombie-loving fans; and it doesn't disappoint.  Complete with the annihilation of a small family (while on vacation, it seems like), but in backwards slow-motion.

I'd have to say this isn't the zombie game of yesteryear; I played the very first Resident Evil when it came out on Playstation One and I was terrified with that game.  There's no way I could play this one.  I wouldn't make it past the first scene.  And besides, I'd probably start having nightmares.
