“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 - - - - - - - - - - -

OMG Hilarious! - Saturday

Isn't This The Truth...

WOAH OH OH OH, Hold It Against Me!

And this is how Britney should have done 'Hold It Against Me,' instead of the craziness that was her music video.  Not only, is Ryan James Yezak's video totally hot, it's totally cool.  Awesomeness at it's best.  Check it out and tell me what you think.

Poster of the Week - Issue No. 9 - Conformity

Continuing alphabetically, I bring you this week's poster, "Conformity."

Flashback to the 1950's

"I need you so, that I could die, I love you so, and that is why, whenever I want you, all I have to do is dream."

If I could write every movie this song was featured in, I would.  If I could write down how many artists have sung different versions of this song, I would.  And...... I'll stop there.  The song was originally sung by the Everly Brothers back in 1958, 5 years after my mother was born and 7 after years after my Father. The likelihood they heard it as teenagers is pretty high.  Hell, I heard it as a teenager, and the original version no less.

 Here's a little something you probably didn't know...
On November 4, 2010, Stephen Colbert and Elvis Costello ended "The Colbert Report" with a duet of "All I Have To Do Is Dream" and the full version of the song appeared on the ColbertNation web site by the following morning.
Andy Gibb and Victoria Principal (Pamela Ewing from the TV series Dallas) released a duet version back in 1981.
Former marines, the Everly brothers are still alive today, and are very proud to say they had a total of 26 Billboard Top 40 singles and 35 Billboard Top 100 singles, they were also among the first 10 artists inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  In 1997, they were awarded the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.  In addition, they were inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2001.

I'd say those are some pretty darn good achievements;  There's plenty more to read at Wikipedia, but for now I present to you the original song in an actual live performance.  The sound is actually quite remarkable.  I have also added an extra bonus after the jump - the duets with Andy Gibb and Victoria Principal, also Elvis Costello and Stephen Colbert.

The Sleepy Doggie

I met my partner Ryan the year his beloved maltese, Mashie passed away.  I never got to meet the little hairball, but it's videos like this that make me wish I had.  I miss you too Mashie.
