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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Do You Ever Say Goodbye?

How often do you say, "Goodbye," when ending a conversation with someone?  Quite often, right? Well unbeknownst to me, I overlooked this in films.  I never realized saying, "Goodbye" was a taboo in Hollywood, or is it?  

Check out this pretty cool video...

Keeping It Old Skool - Issue No. 5 - The Rubik's Cube

I had originally intended this post to be a special issue of my 'Poster of the Week' series, but then realized I could use it as a 'Keeping It Old Skool' issue instead.  And after looking at the motivational phrase, I couldn't pass it up.  

This is so-something I would've done back in the 1980's. I hated these damn things growing up; I even removed all the stickers once and "completed it."  My sister and parents thought I was a genius. :-)  Little did they know I had trouble making them stick.

According to Wikipedia:

The Rubik's cube is a 3-D mechanical puzzle invented in 1974 by Hungarian sculptor and professor of architecture Ernő Rubik. Originally called the "Magic Cube", the puzzle was licensed by Rubik to be sold by Ideal Toy Corp. in 1980.

As of January 2009, 350 million cubes have sold worldwide making it the world's top-selling puzzle game. It is widely considered to be the world's best-selling toy.

Ironically enough the concept wasn't entirely Rubik's; prior attempts had been made using a spherical version of one, but it never took off.  

I remember sitting in class or just out with friends in the playground, and everyone was playing with one of these magical little boxes.  Sometimes my sister and I would fight at the Pizza Hut gumball machine to see who could get the special key-chain version of the toy - of course our mother ended up with it.

As with all my 'Keeping It Old Skool' issues, you need a classic trailer...

Another classic trailer after the jump...

Movies to Watch: Rise of the Planet of the Apes Trailer Released!

“Our greatest discovery will become our greatest threat.”

It's official, the Rise of the Planet of the Apes trailer has been released, And after watching the trailer, it makes want to watch it even more. On Tuesday, I mentioned the great CGI effects on the movie's apes on how realistic they look - Best CGI to date.  These are the same people who did the special effects on AVATAR, so you know it's going to be great!

The movie, which stars James Franco, Tom Felton, John Lithgow, and Freida Pinto will be released across the US on August 5th, and I must say it looks absolutely fabulous!

Mind-Boggling News: I Killed My Cat For GAGA!

It's not only the Beiber-crazies that are looney when it comes to worshiping their idols, apparently Gaga has some too.  Courtesy of Max Read from Gawker:

A 20-year-old Oklahoma woman killed and mutilated her family's cat, apparently so she could use its blood for an outfit to wear to a Lady Gaga concert. Talk about a "little monster"! But seriously, she killed a cat.
According to police, Angelina Barnes drowned the cat, sliced open its belly, mutilated its eyes and removed its liver, which cops later found "in a makeup case on the counter." An unidentified relative arrived home to find Barnes—who had "cover[ed] light switches with duct tape so she wouldn't be able to turn on the light"—dressed in a "long coat" with "streaks of what turned out to be cat blood on her face." This was, it seems, the outfit she planned on wearing to the Lady Gaga concert.
As you might expect, Barnes did not go to the Lady Gaga concert. She went instead to the hospital, "where she threatened a male nurse with a piece of glass"; she's now "receiving treatment" at a local hospital. Tonight, Lady Gaga plays Miami.

First, I really hate the fact that people use the phrase 'a male nurse' instead of simply just saying 'a nurse.'  Like one commenter said, "Seriously. I wonder if she saw a 'female doctor' during her stay." 

It's a profession people, get it together - a nurse is a nurse, a doctor is a doctor - it doesn't matter if your male or female.

As for the story, I'm so happy Ryan didn't mutilate our chihuahuas as obsessed as he is about The Lady; Sometimes I wonder what he'll do next.
