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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Gaga The Fashionista!

As many of you already know, Lady Gaga is in London right now.  Earlier this week she mentored the top 4 American Idol finalists, and she's rumored to perform at the show's finale in two weeks.  

Yesterday morning she stepped out of her hotel in another one of her fabulous ensembles.  What a fashionista!  She's definitely living on the Edge of Glory.

Will There Ever Be A Wonder Woman?

Why is it this female superhero can never fly off the runway in her invisible jet?  If people would stop comparing her to Lynda Carter's 1970's Wonder Woman, we may finally get somewhere.  

I'll be the first one to admit, I wasn't too happy with a lot of the stories I was reading online.  From the terrible script to the god-awful costume - Adrianne Palicki and David E. Kelley couldn't convince NBC the pilot was worthy of a television series.  If this were to happen to TNT's Dallas, I would be devastated!  But since it isn't, I'm okay with this not coming into fruition.  

Granted, there is still hope for some fans that it will be picked up by a cable network - but it's wishful thinking at best.  Hell, it's been 30 years since Lynda Carter donned the suit.  Maybe it's a sign telling writers and producers that Wonder Woman should be left alone.  Don't bother making a movie or a show, just let things be.

Powdered Supplements & Cardio Myths

And you thought cardio would give you the body you wanted.  Hell to the N-to-the-O!  You are wrong, that was just a myth, and if you don't believe me, hear it from the one, and only, Mike Chang.  Who, by the way, is an extremely savvy guy.  

9 years ago, Chang was extremely overweight.  He made a lifestyle change that helped him, and hundreds of people around the world.  He has an awesome website, and the following video below is just a "piece of the cake" when it comes to being an awesome motivator, and mentor.  If you have never heard of him, or always had questions about your health and fitness, this guy can give it to you.

From his YouTube page: 
Six years ago, I was overweight and out of shape. Finally, one day I made the decision that I was going to learn how to get a ripped body and abs - - no matter what.
When I first started, I made every mistake in the book. But with the help of a few fitness mentors, I finally learned the exercise and nutrition strategies that get you into great shape.
Once I learned this stuff, I got into shape surprisingly fast. It made a huge difference in my life - - it became much easier for me to attract women, and I got much more respect from my male friends. And I just felt way better about myself every time I looked in the mirror.

If anything, at least let him share with you his experience with cardio, supplements, and powdered drinks - these don't do you any good.  

You'll be surprised - he's a really smart guy.

Cover Wars - Issue No. 2

UPDATE: Sam Tsui wins cover war! - See Comments

Last week, I started my new series, "Cover Wars," and I had so much fun putting it together, I even designed the headline pic up above.

The premise behind "Cover Wars" is to get your opinion on who you think is the "best of the best" when a YouTube artist performs a cover to a popular hit, like Adele's current song, "Rolling in the Deep" or Madonna's, "Like A Prayer".

This week's battle song is Lady Gaga's, "Born This Way". Currently one of her number 1 tracks, Gaga's Born This Way album hits stores on May 23rd.

For the second round of my new series I have chosen 6 people or duos to battle it out, Sam Tsui, Tyler Ward feat. Alex G.
, Wesley Avery, Peter Hollens, Marius Gröh from Germany, and Ben feat. Josh.

Who do you think will win this war?

OMG Hilarious! - HORSE

ROFL (Rolling On The Floor Laughing) - for those who didn't know what the acronym stood for.  

Growing up, I remember playing this game with my cousins, but I would lose the majority of the time.  Unless I was playing with my sister - in which case I would always win. *smiles*

The object of the game was to shoot the basket from a certain location, or making the shot in some weird scenario.  Your opponent would then have to copy the shot the exact same way, otherwise he would receive the first letter to the word "HORSE" - an 'H'.   Whoever spelt the word, "horse," after several rounds would lose the game. 

Some don't know how to take a loss too well, so in turn, they take extreme measures to keep from losing.  As you will see in the video below.  

Just don't take the wrong kind of precedent.

My Blog Is Back!

For those who are not aware, my blog gets about 650 views a day, which is not bad, considering I've been online for only 4-1/2 months. And even though I'm not a great writer, I do enjoy writing. I do it to share my thoughts and opinions; the mere joy, and happiness it gives me is refreshing.


I about lost it yesterday evening when I logged on, every post I'd written over the past two days were missing.  I normally write posts a day or two in advance so that when the next day arrives they automatically post at specific times throughout the day.  So those I wrote for Friday, the 13th are also missing.  Blogger states they will restore them slowly, but who knows. Here is there reasoning behind it...
What a frustrating day. We’re very sorry that you’ve been unable to publish to Blogger for the past 20.5 hours. We’re nearly back to normal — you can publish again, and in the coming hours posts and comments that were temporarily removed should be restored.  Thank you for your patience while we fix this situation.  We use Blogger for our own blogs, so we’ve also felt your pain.

Here’s what happened: during scheduled maintenance work Wednesday night, we experienced some data corruption that impacted Blogger’s behavior. Since then, bloggers and readers may have experienced a variety of anomalies including intermittent outages, disappearing posts, and arriving at unintended blogs or error pages. A small subset of Blogger users (we estimate 0.16%) may have encountered additional problems specific to their accounts. Yesterday we returned Blogger to a pre-maintenance state and placed the service in read-only mode while we worked on restoring all content: that’s why you haven’t been able to publish.  We rolled back to a version of Blogger as of Wednesday May 11th, so your posts since then were temporarily removed. Those are the posts that we’re in the progress of restoring.

Again, we are very sorry for the impact to our authors and readers.  We try hard to ensure Blogger is always available for you to share your thoughts and opinions with the world, and we’ll do our best to prevent this from happening again.

I've heard other members say that BLOGGER is still the best service out there, and that communication yesterday was mediocre at best. But I'm hoping better communication will be made in the next several months and years, because it takes a lot of time and effort to write these posts; for some folks - it's their job.  I don't advertise on my blogs, so it doesn't affect me as much, but it does sadden me when I can't see my work.

Thank you for your patience during this downtime.  I will begin blogging new posts within the hour.

Have a great weekend!
