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! - A Watch!

24: The Movie

If you don't know who Brian Grazer is, then you need a lesson on television shows and who produces them.  Just Kidding.  I only learned of Brian Grazer because of Fox's hit show 24 and Friday Night Lights.  So you can just imagine what I thought, when I realized he was an award-winning producer, more-so than my favorite producer David E. Kelley.

Entertainment Weekly has confirmed that Grazer is on board to produce a movie based on his hit show '24.' 
The news only gets better for fans who are anxiously awaiting the return of Jack Bauer:
Uber-producer Brian Grazer recently tweeted that he’s on board for long-gestating 24 movie.
“Got off the phone Keifer yesterday and we are very excited about producing the 24 movie for next year,” he tweeted.
Grazer’s involvement makes sense since Imagine Entertainment, the company he co-owns with Ron Howard, produced the long running action drama for Fox.
Last month, Kiefer Sutherland told the women of The View that the movie will come out in 2012.
For those unfamiliar with the television series, which garnered many awards and ran for 8 seasons on Fox, is about a Federal Agent, Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) who
"can't afford to always play by the rules. As a member of the L.A. Counter Terrorist Unit, Jack must stop bombs, viruses, assassination attempts, and usually save someone he cares about at the same time. Every season of this series has 24 episodes, each unfolding in real time following a consecutive hour in one very bad day."
Ryan and I watched all 8 seasons of this suspenseful action/thriller/drama, and I'm saying this only once - The show was PHENOMENAL!  Personally, I'm really excited about this, it's been a long time coming. I can't wait to see what characters they bring back onto the project.  Anyone, but Kim Bauer. Ugh, we couldn't stand her! LOL

The Internet. Have You Heard Of It?

And you thought when you were born, the Internet was already here...

Imagine living in a world where we didn't have Google to help us find the answers to a test.  Where we didn't have a "smart" phone when we went camping hundreds of miles away from our home. Where all we did was play outside with our friends, shoot hoops, and afterwards head to the library to complete a science fair project.

Which Woman Do You See?

States At Peace

According to the Global Peace Index, the south is the least peaceful place to be.  

I'm going to disagree with that - true, we have more conservative, bible thumping, liberal hating people in our state than all the other states combined, but we're a huge state.  And you can't discount the fact, that we have a gay mayor controlling the fourth largest city (Houston) in the country.  And don't forget Austin, which is considered one of the gay friendliest cities in the U.S..  Also, San Antonio and Dallas don't fall too far behind.

Although we live in the south,  I would say that Ryan and I are at peace with ourselves. We live in a peaceful community, and aside from the Obama-Biden poster thieves, I wouldn't have it any other way.

Little Girl Bows in Public

This young Padawan took it upon herself to bow in allegiance to Darth Vader while on vacation with her family; It was cute and hilarious at the same time.

I guess she realized the power of the Dark Side, but Darth wasn't having any of it.  He quickly had her escorted off to train with the Sith.

Houston Shut Out

The news of the day was directed at our hometown of Houston all day yesterday.  Why, you ask?  Because our city, as diverse as it is, got snubbed, spit, kicked in the groin, told to eat shit, and die.  It may not have come out that way, but it sure felt like it.

Here is the fourth largest city in the country, who plays host to millions of visitors every year, many of who specifically come to visit the Johnson Space Center.  A city which has been at the forefront of space development and exploration for over 50 years, 
'In fact, the most famous and the most infamous words ever spoken in the vacuum of space by humans - "Houston, Tranquility base here. The Eagle has landed," and "Houston, we have a problem" - were directed at the JSC here in Houston.' - The Houston Chronicle
But the most important topic of the conversation, was the blame game that came immediately afterward.  And like with everything else, why not blame Obama.  Republicans and conservatives cried foul yesterday blaming Obama for the decision, when in fact it was Charles Bolden's decision.  While I feel that no one should have disregarded the rich history and contribution our city has made, our local planning committee was really late in fighting for one of the shuttles.  All the cities had three years to make their bid, Houston didn't join until last year, and even so, I feel we shouldn't have been snubbed.  But to blame Obama for this is ludicrous at best.  Let us not forget 20 other cities were snubbed as well.
