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 - - - - - - - - - - -

A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words - Issue 3

For my third issue of A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words, 21 yr old artist, Laemmen, describes himself as one who likes photography and esthetic design.  He is currently going to school at the University of Arts in Bremen where he has enrolled in Digital Media.

Judging from his first typographical portrait, he's headed towards a great career...

We Stand With Gaga on the Edge of Glory

While all you people continue to hate, Ryan and I will continue to love.  Maybe if "you people" took the time to understand why some lyrics are written, you'd understand the importance of  music in our lives.  And Gaga, thank you, for being the artist you are, and will become in the years ahead.  We stand behind you on the "Edge of Glory"

"How To" Guide on Amputations

If you're ever in the need to make an amputation, I highly recommend this chart.  It's a very useful guide, and if you don't have the equipment for an amputation, like an Amputation Saw, Gigli Saw, Amputation Knife and Tenotomy Knife, you can use "any saw or a domestic Knife."
"You will need to amputate a patient’s leg about five times more often than his arm. Once you have cut off a limb there is no going back, so try to retain as much function as you can. The patient is unlikely to get an arm prosthesis, and it would be of little use even if he could get one. So aim instead for the longest possible stump of an arm. Every centimetre is useful, so is an elbow which he can use as a hook, and so is any kind of a wrist."

My Lord, I think I would freak out if I had to do something like this, but it happens.

Glee Does Friday - And Hits A Homerun!

If you watched Glee last night, you may have noticed a cover of a recent hit song - "Friday" by Rebecca Black.  Yes, the young YouTuber was just made richer.  While some people think she's a "one hit wonder," I beg to differ.  If you allow these sort of things to happen, you are only giving the artist more power, and who's to say she doesn't deserve it after all the humiliation.  Meanwhile, in the last 24 hrs, Glee's cover has hit iTunes, and she is happily reaping the benefits.

Sam , Artie, and Puck sang the addictive song during their prom, and I'd have to say it was actually quite good - there were times Ryan and I were tapping our feet.  Contrary to popular rumors, Black did not make a cameo on the show.

I think I may know what director and producer, Ryan Murphy was trying to convey by playing this song on prom night, and correct me if I'm wrong - but don't you feel he did this because of the backlash she got when the song was released?  Haters and bullies dissed her when she released her music video, and in the end, she was able to come out on top. This season's primary focus has been bullying, so it only makes sense to me.

Here are the boys (Sam , Artie, and Puck) singing Rebecca's song on last night's episode.
