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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Keeping It Old Skool - Issue No. 6 - Tight-rolled Pants

Ahhh... talk about Keeping It Old Skool.   Tight-rolled pants were a huge rage back in the 1980's and early 1990's.  I'll be honest - I thought it was cool, and tried to incorporate this awesome fad with my school attire.  Granted, the hot jocks looked so much better than I did.  You know - the football, baseball, and soccer players?  I thought they looked hot sporting those tight rolled up pants - I'll spare you the details of my fantasies.  

I love how Wikipedia describes it below, LOL.
"girls and boys would tight-roll the bottoms of their jeans or any pants that they wore. On full length pants tight rolling is performed by taking up the slack around the ankles at the hem of the pants, folding the extra material over and then rolling upwards 2 or 3 times over. A proper tight-roll should have the extra material folded inward across the lower shin. The use of safety pins was key to a good roll, but to the experienced tight roller they can be achieved without them. "

And yes, everyone did it - even the celebrities on television, like Zac Morris from Saved by the Bell.  I think every gay boy in America had a huge crush on him growing up.

I also found this hilarious instructional video on YouTube on how to sport those tight-rolled up pants. 

Who knows?  You may find you like it; I have heard they're making a comeback.

Worst Persons of the Day with Keith Olbermann - 04/18/2011

As you may remember, the man pictured above was canned from MSNBC back in January.   Canned, framed, quit, either way I'm happy to report that Keith Olbermann has been back for sometime now, and until his new television show airs, he has been blogging from to time to time on his non-for-profit blog FOK News ChannelFOK translates to "Friends of Keith"

So let's start off with "Worst Persons of the Day" for April 18, 2011...

Gay Movies to Watch: Were The World Mine

If you could make anyone fall in love with anybody you desired, would you? And if said object of affection did happen to fall in love with you on account of (minor) interference with free-will, could you still call it love? An interesting dilemma indeed, yet one ultimately reserved to the realm of fantasy... in this case Were the World Mine protagonist Timothy's fantasy.

Ryan and I had the pleasure purchasing and watching this movie 2 years ago, and glad to say it's part of our DVD collection.  We've watched it countless times, and as you may have guessed, the scenes used in both these clips originate from Tom Gustafson's award winning film.

If you like gay movies and musicals, Were the World Mine is available on DVD and also can be directly downloaded using iTunes or Amazon's video-on-demand service.
