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 - - - - - - - - - - -

OMG Hilarious! - Ideas

I Quote That - Things You Cannot See

Movie Titles in Movies

I actually found this video quite entertaining.  Whoever put this together had plenty of time on their hands.  The video below features eighty movie titles that have been featured in a movie, one time or another, and in 2 minutes, mind you!

A comment also reads, you could've added all the Lord of the Ring Movies too:
1.) Gandalf tells Sauraman "There is only one LORD OF THE RINGS..."
2.) Elrond calls the group "THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING"
3.) Gandalf refers to an alliance between "THE TWO TOWERS"
4.) Gandalf (again) tells the Steward of Gondor he cannot stop "THE RETURN OF THE KING"

Play sing-a-long, all the movie titles, after the jump...

Flashback to the 1990's - Suzanne Vega - "Tom's Diner"

With music in one hand, and a briefcase in the other, I headed to work.  I popped the rectangular shaped object into my car stereo and reminisced about the time the song was released.  As the cassette turned, I took the time to reflect on my past, without regret, without shame, but with unequivocal admiration for the lessons I have learned.  And "Tom's Diner," did just that.  

The song was released on Suzanne Vega's 1987 album, "Solitude Standing," and originally an a cappella vocal, but later remixed by two British producers under the name DNA, in 1990.  The video below is the one I listened to this morning, and the version everyone is familiar with.
Tom's Restaurant, after which the song Tom's Diner was named
Courtesy of Wikipedia:
Suzanne Vega's song "Tom's Diner" was used as the reference track in an early trial of the MP3 compression system, earning her the distinction of being the Mother of the MP3.  The original music video, "Tom's Diner," takes place in Tom's Restaurant at 112th Street and Broadway in New York City. Exterior shots of the same restaurant appear in the television sitcom Seinfeld as Monk's, which is the eatery where Jerry, George, Elaine, and Kramer hang out. The DNA remix of the track was so popular that it inspired many cover versions—the best of which were eventually collected by Vega on an album titled Tom's Album.

And here's the song as I heard it this morning.  Good Times. :-)
