“If you can’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else?” - RuPaul - - - - - - - - - - - “if by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people -- their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties -- someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal.” - John F. Kennedy - - - - - - - - - - - - “Imagine finding someone you love more than anything in the world, who you would risk your life for but couldn’t marry. And you couldn’t have that special day the way your friends do – you know, wear the ring on your finger and have it mean the same thing as everybody else. Just put yourself in that person’s shoes. 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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Movies to Watch: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2

So how excited are you for the second part of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows?  I, for one, am very excited.  I thought the first part was rather slow, but I understood what they were trying to accomplish.  On the other hand, the second part is full of drama and excitement, it will surely take everyone for an emotional roller-coaster.  My question is... what are all the "die-hard" Harry Potter fans going to do when the final moments of their saga comes to an end?

Below you'll find a trailer/featurette featuring the cast of Harry Potter and from the looks of it, this movie is going to be downright amazing.  Ryan and I will definitely be watching this on 3D.

Take A Trip to Disneyland Paris

Regardless of what Wikipedia and Disney have to say on how it was made, the video is superb.  The Disneyland Paris promo looks like a  clay-mation or "Rudolph" type movie, and the music that accompanies it has that old 1920's feel to it.

Pack your bags and get ready to enjoy a whirlwind trip via our new tilt-shift video, "A Magical Day at Disneyland Paris," and see just about everything The Walt Disney Studios and Disneyland Park has to offer. Read more at the Disney Parks Blog: Here

According to Wikipedia, "Tilt-shift photography" refers to the use of camera movements on small- and medium-format cameras, and sometimes specifically refers to the use of tilt for selective focus, often for simulating a miniature scene.  In simpler terms, Disney's blog states, "Tilt-shift videos like these use different photo angles, focus settings and color saturation adjustments to make the subject of a photo appear miniature. It took more than seven months and 4,000 photographs to produce this 2:38-minute clip."

I found the video fascinating, to say the least. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
