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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Glee Does Prince and Neon Trees on Las Night's Episode

As I mentioned last Saturday, Gwyneth's character Holly Holiday would be returning with a bang.  And with a bang she did, by performing a Tango with Mr. Schuester while singing Prince's, "Kiss."  The performance was really fantastic; Ryan and I truly enjoyed it.

The Dalton Academy Warblers also had an amazing performance with their version of Neon Trees' "Animal."  Check out both videos below.

Quoted - The Sex Talk - Burt Hummel (Kurt's father)

"When you're intimate with someone in that way, you gotta know that you're exposing yourself. You're never gonna be more vulnerable, and that scares the hell out of a lot of guys. With two guys you've got two people who think that sex is just sex. It's gonna be easier to come by and once you start, you aren't gonna want to stop. You gotta know that it means something. It's doing something to you, to your heart, to your self-esteem, even though it feels like you're just having fun. When you're ready, I want you to be able to do everything. But when you're ready, I want you to use it as a way to connect to another person. Don't throw yourself around like you don't matter, because you matter."
                – Burt Hummel (Kurt's father) on last night's episode of Glee.

I'll be honest, I'm not a fan of Kurt, but give me his dad anytime, and I'd be happy to call him Father.  If only parents of gay children could see how Kurt's dad treats him.  He loves him unconditionally and is there for him at all costs.

Dave Franco Plays "You're So Hot," But Does He Win?

Back in college, when parties would ensue, "the straights" had so much fun playing this game, it was one of my "not-so memorable" experiences.  I find it ironic that a simple video like this, could bring back one of the things I completely forgot or simply chose to erase from my memory. LOL. 

On the other hand, I'm glad the video came to light, because the thought of Dave Franco (James Franco's hot, younger brother) talking dirty to me would make things perfectly alright.  Ugh. he's so damn beautiful!

So the point of the game...

You get two people, preferably two "straights" or one "straight," one "gay," and you have them go back and forth telling each other the dirtiest things they could think of to make the other one laugh.

The following video is so hilarious I couldn't keep myself from literally falling on the floor laughing; Dave and Chris Mintz-Plasse from "Superbad" play the game and tell each other the dirtiest things imaginable.  If you think you've imagined it, you're wrong!

Oh... I forgot... if you're at work make sure you have headphones!

How Much Sleep Are You Getting?

Finally!  A chart that shows what I've been saying all along.  That majority of people only sleep 5-6 hours a day.  I tell this to people all the time: there was a study a while back that consisted of several hundred people, and over the course of this 30 year study they found that people who slept less, lived the longest, and those who slept 8 hours or more, croaked sooner.  Honest to God, it's True!

Flashback to the 1980's

On my way to work this morning, fumbling through the darkness in my car (I go in at 5 AM), I reached for my cassette case and pulled out the single by Taylor Dayne, "Love Will Lead You Back."

Okay, first things first...

Yes, I still have cassettes; you know, those little rectangular boxes with some tape running through it, like in the image to the right?  Well, the Toyota Avalon I got from Ryan's parents has a cassette player in it, and I thought I might as well utilize it; so hence, the reason I pulled out my cassette case.

Anyway, "Love Will Lead You Back," debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 chart on January 27, 1990, but was recorded by Arista in 1989.  Courtesy of Wikipedia, the song, written by Diane Warren, is about a woman who is willing to set her lover free because she is confident that one day his love will lead him back to her: "Sometimes it takes some time out on your own now / to find your way back home."  Warren has stated that she began writing the song while in a hotel in Russia, and that she had originally intended the song to be offered to R&B singer Whitney Houston, but Arista Records president Clive Davis wanted to let Dayne record the song. It became Dayne's only Number One single.

While I'm sure they played this song on prom night eons ago, it was nice listening to an old track on cassette.  I don't know, there's something about hearing a cassette or record that makes it so different from the digital sounds that come from a CD or MP3 download. It's soothing.

Back to the Miss Dayne...  Just because she only had one #1 hit doesn't mean she was a one hit wonder.  She's actually had 17 Top Ten hits on the Billboard Charts, including most recently, her 2008 Billboard #1 "Beautiful".  Due to having a huge gay following, in July, 2010, she released "Facing A Miracle", the official theme song to the 2010 Gay Games. Dayne performed the song to an audience of 50,000 fans on July 31, 2010 in Cologne, Germany.

Let's take a "Flashback to 1989" and listen to "Love Will Lead You Back."
