“If you can’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else?” - RuPaul - - - - - - - - - - - “if by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people -- their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties -- someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal.” - John F.

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 - - - - - - - - - - -

What a Hot Mess: Feeding A Great White Shark

If you wanted proof that there's stupid people in the world, just look at this stupid bitch.  OMG, I'm sorry, but why won't they learn their lesson.  Seriously, the damn shark could have easily jumped up and munched on this woman whole.  What a HOT MESS!

"This woman" is researcher, Valerie Taylor - here I'll "Wiki" her for you.  Lord have mercy, as if she didn't learn her lesson by watching the documentary, "Grizzly Man."  Which reminds me... I need to buy this DVD for Ryan and myself, just to witness how stupid people kill themselves.  This documentary was released in 2005, the year I met my partner, so I remember it airing on the Discovery Channel.  In either case, Timothy Treadwell was a bear lover, and for 13 years, he and his wife played with the Grizzlies up in Alaska.  They played house and made mudpies together.  Well, one day, Grizzly's mudpie wasn't too appealing, so he munched on Timothy and his wife instead.  Let me just say this... there wasn't much left of them when their remains were found.

Well, back to this crazy woman, Valerie.  Below is a video of her hand-feeding and petting a huge-ass shark.  We'll read about her soon.  Just Watch.

Foods That Make You Cringe - Issue No. 12

LOL, why is it that it takes me almost a month to post an issue of, "Foods That Make You Cringe"?  I think it's because the food is either disgusting or too scrumptious for me to post each week.

The Joys of Being a Parent: Words of Wisdom From A Kid

In my third issue of, "The Joys of Being a Parent," this kid feels it's in his best interest to share his message to the world.  He just finished learning how to ride a bike, when his dad asks him if he has any words of wisdom for all the other kids learning how to ride a bike. The result is an astounding message that would put Lady Gaga's speeches to shame. LOL.

Cover Wars - Issue No. 3

It was during a dance routine by Billy and Kaitlyn on So You Think You Can Dance, that introduced us to Christina Perri's hit song, Jar of HeartsThe moment I heard it, I loved it.  

I've experienced so much of what the song is trying to convey.  I dated guys who were with me for only 2 or 3 months, then they'd leave. It was heart breaking.  Furthermore, you'd see them with someone else a week or so later, crushing your heart even further.  Then, they'd leave them too.  These guys were just collecting their "jar of hearts," because unbeknownst to them, they were breaking people's hearts without a care in the world. I thank God everyday for giving me Ryan, who's been with me for 6 years!

This is only my third issue of the series, because of the amount of time it takes me to put this together.  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 has an unprecedented 16 contenders. I literally went through several hundred covers of Perri's song, to find the ones I wanted competing against each other. I chose 36 covers, and out of those 36, I siphoned out 20.  It is now up to you to decide which of these 16 wins the battle.  Out of all these, one of them made me shed a tear, can you guess which one that was?

I have listed each of the contestants in the playlist from 1-16, starting with the current reigning champ, Sam Tsui, and his cover of Jar of Hearts.

The Real Jigsaw

Jigsaw has nothing on this guy.  What Jigsaw creates in his movies is chicken poop to what Jeorg Sprave creates in reality.  Seriously,  only an insane person would spend the time and effort to create a contraption capable of slicing your head open?  Okay, so maybe he's not insane, he is a good bloke it seems like.

Nope, he's insane, and if shooting circular sawblades is not your cup of tea, he's also created a slingshot for those of you who wish to hunt vampires.

I don't know about you, but I nominate Jeorg as the next contestant on Survivor (The SAW edition).

So Long As I Live

Yesterday, as you may recall, I made a promise to myself that I would never text while driving again.  

As I got into my car, and drove out of the parking garage at work, I received a Facebook message alert on my phone.  I immediately picked it up, and by force of habit started to reply, while at the same time looking down, looking up, "making sure" I didn't pass a stop sign, and run over a pedestrian.   At that time, a lightbulb clicked in my head, and I remembered, NO MORE TEXTING.  "But it's Facebook, I'm not texting anyone," I told myself, as I continued towards a stoplight.

Without hesitation, I immediately, and purposefully threw my phone the furthest away from me that I could - onto the other side of my passenger side seat (where I knew I couldn't reach it).  I assured myself, that I wasn't going to risk my life or the lives of others any longer.  I made a promise to myself, and to the world yesterday, And I was not going to break this promise.

In a few months, my sister Victoria, will be giving birth to her firstborn child -  Ryan and I will become uncles for the first time, and there is no way in hell I'm going to risk losing each other's lives, because I played with a piece of technology.  I think I can last 30 minutes to an hour without a phone, it will not kill me, but driving with it will.

At 6:30 PM today will be one whole day since I've stuck with my promise, and I will continue to do so, so long as I live.

If there is one video you should watch, this one's it - it's chilling, it will make you cry, and it will affect you in more ways than one. Please watch it.
