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 - - - - - - - - - - -

OMG Hilarious! - Crossroads


War of the Roses - Paige & Scott

War of the Roses (Roula & Ryan's Roses) is back for another week, and this week's call is a little different than the last.

If you're not familiar with how the "War of the Roses" is played out, then I suggest you read up on last week's post.  I wrote a detailed description on how it actually works.
 And the War begins...

In this morning's call, Roula took the role of Manda from Plants & Flowers, Incorporated.  She spoke with long-time listener, Paige who was worried her boyfriend of 4 years was cheating on her.  Sweethearts since college, she and her boyfriend, Scott have never gone a day without sharing things with each other - they would always talk about their jobs, and so forth. But for the last several weeks he has been coming home late, way over his regular 9-5 job.  Roula and Ryan informed her that they needed more information in order to call him, but she really didn't have anything else to say other than her boyfriend being dismissive, and that she hasn't been able to get any answers from him.

Roula and Ryan warned her that if Scott ended up sending the roses to her, instead of someone else, Ryan would still come on the radio, and tell him what's going on. She agreed, and this is how the war raged on...

Part 2

Make sure to stay tuned for next Thursday, as this is a regular series on my blog, and feel free to share it with your friends on Facebook or email. There's a little Facebook button right underneath this post, under "This Post Written By".

Bloody Mary

One of my all-time favorite drinks is an old-fashioned Bloody Mary.  I haven't tried this recipe yet, but if you do, let me know.  It actually sounds pretty good right about now, but I'm at work :-(

"By summer 2010, the expansion of bike lanes in NYC exposed a clash of long-standing bad habits — such as pedestrians jaywalking, cyclists running red lights, and motorists plowing through crosswalks. By focusing on one intersection as a case study, my video aims to show our interconnection and shared role in improving the safety and usability of our streets. The video is part of a larger campaign I created called '3-Way Street'."
Videographer, Ron Gabriel couldn't have stated it any better.  Towards the end of the video below, he also states that, "There are 12,370 intersections in NYC, 74% of crashes happen in intersections, and 4 people are killed or seriously injured every day."

After you watch the video, you'll see how crazy it is.

Cover Wars - Issue No. 4

Cover Wars 4 is here, and figuring out who of these 3 will take home the Gold Record is up to you.  I really had a difficult time finding a good cover to P!nk's "F**kin Perfect."  It is, by far, one of my most favorite songs of the past year, and for me, it is up there with "Born This Way," "Jar of Hearts," and "Rolling in The Deep."

One of the main reasons I love this song so much, is because it deals with suicide, and the yearning for acceptance in this world.  I grew up with thoughts of suicide as a gay adolescent, and up to my early twenties; Let me tell you something, it's not a good feeling to have. 

While, many on the right have changed the song to reflect their "Christian" values, or make it about their "relationships," it isn't about that.  Don't get me wrong, there were some excellent covers out there, but I had so much trouble finding a good cover, because of that reason.  It isn't about "less, less than perfect!"  It's "pretty pretty please, don't you ever feel, like your less than f**kin perfect!"

It was the same way with "Born This Way."  Removing the lyrics, or changing them to reflect your own life makes it really difficult when the song is trying to send a different message.  I'm not being hypocritical here.  I mean, there are songs out there where the gender role was changed from "he" to "she," or "her" to "him." I think that's okay, so long as the main message or point is getting across.

Pink quoted,
"Cutting, and suicide, two very different symptoms of the same problem, are gaining on us. (the problem being; alienation and depression. the symptoms; cutting and suicide). I personally don't know a single person who doesn't know at least two of these victims personally." - P!nk.
She also goes on to explain,
"that, while the video may be considered shocking, it is intended to open people's eyes to these problems. In addition, P!nk believes the video is a message to everyone who needs help. Pink described the process of making the video as a “very emotional experience” and related the core theme of “Fuckin' Perfect” to her yet-to-be-born baby, saying, “I have a life inside of me, and I want her or him to know that I will accept him or her with open and loving and welcoming arms. And though I will prepare this little munchkin for a sometimes cruel world, I will also equip this kid to see all the beauty in it as well.” She also noted that she expects the video to “Ruffle some feathers,” meaning it would cause controversy."
Get this through your f**kin heads people.  You need to learn to accept your child for who, and what he is.  If he acts a little girly, and likes to play with dolls, let him.  If he walks or talks a little funny, who gives a shit.  If he grows up loving sports, but you find out he only likes boys - big f**kn deal, He's f**kin perfect!  He or she is your child through and through. No blood about it!

Here are  your top 3 battling it out for the top spot.  I cant decide on who I want to win, so I'm asking for your help.  please make sure to leave a comment with your vote.

First one on the list is Peter from the Czech Republic, followed by Eypee from Berlin, Germany; with the final competitor being Marina Braga from Brazil.
