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. 7 - My Little Pony

Awwwww, "My Little Pony."  This was my partner, Ryan's favorite childhood toy.  I remember these god-awful creatures, and they still exist today.  I even remember my sister having a couple of these.  She would brush their long manes and gallop around the house like she was actually riding a horse.  Here's the original commercial >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Launched in 1983, these horrendous toys consisted of many different sets, starting with the Rainbow Ponies (which all sported rainbow-colored manes and tails). Other variations included the So-Soft Ponies (which were entirely covered in flocking), Twinkle-Eyed Ponies (with small rhinestones in place of the eyes), Twice As Fancy Ponies (with patterns covering most of the body), Brush n' Grow Ponies (which had a longer-than-usual tail stored inside the body that could be drawn out through brushing) and Baby Ponies, which were smaller versions of their mothers.

And if you couldn't remember their names, because you threw away their birth certificate and special little brush, all you had to do was look at their ass, because it was branded with a distinctive design reflecting their name.

Below is a video of My Little Ponies lip-synching to "Dreamgirls" and "Wicked."

Honestly, I couldn't get through it all, it was too freaking creepy!  I enjoyed playing with my Transformers, He-man and Star Wars figurines.  Really Ryan, what were you thinking? My Little Pony, really?

I won't lie, He-man did have fun riding my sister's My Little Pony.

Movies in Lego: Summer 2011

Back in February, Nextmovie.com released several movie posters before the Oscars which depicted the nominees for Best Motion Picture, all in Lego; I thought they were outrageously hilarious.

Nextmovie.com has now released their rendition of this Summer's blockbuster movies in similar fashion, and they are equally cute and funny.

Green Lantern, Captain America, and Thor are my favorites :-)

The Facebook Dichotomy

Ahhh, this comic is so true; Our society has become so ingrained in Facebook that we tend to overlook the way were before Facebook came to be.

Movies in Rewind: Thor

Ryan and I had the pleasure of watching "Thor" this weekend, and I'd have to say it was a great way to start off the Superhero summer.  Overall, I'd say the movie gets an 8 out of 10.

If you're not familiar with the story, Thor is an immortal god derived from Norse Mythology, and is a hammer-wielding god associated with thunder, lightning, storms, oak trees, strength, destruction, fertility, healing, and the protection of mankind. 

The Thor created by Stan Lee of Marvel Comics has been an ongoing member of the superhero team The Avengers.   In the movie, Thor is thrown down to earth by his father, Odin from the planet Asgard.  He was very arrogant and obnoxious so Odin felt he needed to learn how to be more humble and deserving of his hammer, which is the source of his might and power.

The movie, which also featured Anthony Hopkins and Natalie Portman, had some comedic elements to it too, plenty of one-liners and great special effects. On a side note, I couldn't picture anyone else playing Thor other than Chris Hemsworth - the producers made the right decision when picking him.  

Plenty of surprises are in store for whoever watches this movie - like catching a glimpse of Jeremy Renner as The Avenger's Hawkeye, and if you wait to see the post credits you'll see Nick Fury make a return as the S.H.E.I.L.D. agent from the Iron Man Films.  Most importantly, there's a scene which  really shows the set up for Captain America and The Avengers, as it shows the cosmic cube while Erik Selvig is talking with Nick Fury.

Ohhh... and it also shows that Loki now has control over Erik Selvig.

If you haven't seen the movie, I highly suggest you do,  Here's a 2-1/2 minute trailer for you to take a peak at....


What Really Happened To Osama?

So what really happened to Osama bin Laden?  Has the U.S. Government been telling us the truth?  After watching this chilling video, I'm not sure what to think anymore...
