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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Isn't This The Truth? Google Reality

LMAO - isn't this chart the truth!  How many times have you found yourself searching for stuff, and can't seem to find what you're looking for?

I especially love "8, 9, 10...", Gotta love it!

OMG Hilarious! - Test

So Retro, It's Cool

In February, I showed you a light bulb shattered into a million pieces, in the slowest motion photography you've ever seen.  Last month, I featured Jello jiggling in a way you never thought possible, and on May 18, we witnessed a 6 foot water balloon burst into a tidal wave of laughter and amazement.  

In what I think is pure genius, you'll see some retro products in three separate television commercials, courtesy of French company, Citroën, the first mass-producing auto company outside of the United States.  Director, Jonathan Gurvit has taken the concept of slow-motion photography to a whole new level, by introducing us to Citroën, and their Anti-Retro campaign.

In the videos below, you'll notice some "Retro" products from the past, like Telephones, Blenders and TV Sets.  Each of the commercials uses slow-motion digital photography to capture the ultimate destruction of these products, in very creative, and unimaginable ways.


Movies to Watch: Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2nd Official Trailer Released)

If you haven't seen it already, Rise of The Planet of the Apes has released their second full-length trailer, and in it we learn more about James Franco's role as the scientist who befriends Caesar (the one who starts the uprising).  

I hope they find a better way of explaining how a few hundred apes or possibly more, are able to wipeout the earth's population, including the city they're residing in, San Francisco.

Avril Lavigne is More Popular Than Britney Spears - WHAT BLASPHEMY!!!

What!?!  You've got to be kidding me!  Avril is more popular than Britney?  Go Figure, this is all Britney Spears needs - the world knowing that more people like her worst enemy, Avril Lavigne on Facebook than her.  

Avril recently trounced Britney on Facebook with over 20 million fans compared to her measly 11 million.  That's almost double the fans.  You'd think that after all the hoopla over Britney, she'd be more popular.

I mean if it makes her feel better, she can look at it this way... Eminem passes up Lady Gaga by a couple million fans.  Of course, if you combine all the social networking services, which includes Twitter, Gaga is queen supreme.  Here is the recent list from June 1, 2011.

Where is Mia Michaels from SYTYCD?

Whatever happened to Mia Michaels? Was she fired? Was she let go?

Actually, these are the many questions people have been asking me recently.  At least the fans, and my friends who love So You Think You Can Dance.  

According to E online, before you start thinking there was some huge drama backstage or in the dressing room, Mia left at her own accord.  Looking upon the years ahead, she will be starring in her own Bravo reality show, writing a book, and is currently developing a Broadway show.  As people in this industry know, we all have dreams we wish to fulfill, and I'm sure others will agree.
"Last year when I was sitting on the [judges] panel, I knew it wasn't the right fit because I felt too glossy sitting on the panel," she exclusively tells us. "People were so focused on what I wore and my hair. I wanted to get dirty and back to the work. I am an artist and I'm a visionary. I need to paint my world now and not be constantly linked to So You think You Can Dance."
Not that she doesn't appreciate what SYTYCD has done for her. "It's been a great platform," Michaels says. "It was a wonderful platform. I'm staring at [my] two Emmys right now. It was an amazing, amazing thing for me but I feel like I have to fly. I have to now focus on Mia's world."
Personally, I didn't think she fit at the judge's table - I'll be the first to admit it.  

If you know Mia, or get to know her,  she's a very talented and active artist; Sitting down was not her forte, and everyone knew that. Hell, I read about it in the morning papers, and online blog sites.    Before the interview was finished, she did manage to say this, "I heard they're bringing Mary Murphy back and I'm really happy for her," Michaels says. "I've sat in that chair, but I feel like that was Mary's chair."

And it's true, it did feel odd without Mary Murphy there; I constantly brought it up, and so did the rest of the world. Who knows? Maybe she'll choreograph a dance routine this season, and we'll get to see her creative talent once again.  

If not... we wish you luck, Mia.  Good Luck, and God Bless you and your endeavours - you'll truly be missed.
