Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me.

Little Nicky

Awww how sweet is this, cutie patootie, Nick Jonas (you know? the young muscular stud you see here in the escalator), took his 11-yr old brother, Frankie, to see Cars 2 in California over the weekend. 

According to nickjonline he said, "I think for this particular competition, I have to keep it in the mind-set of young artists at this moment, so I’d say, like, somebody with the overall star power and star qualities of Willow Smith, with the artistry of a Greyson Chance, who is really talented, and then – I’m trying to think – like a really little Nick Jonas!"

What a hottie, I mean what a sweetie. :-)

Mind-Boggling News: Man Faces 10 years in Prison and Up To a $10,000 Fine

So... I'm reading the Houston Chronicle this morning when I read the most mind-boggling news ever!  No, really.  

Long story short, a man got pulled over by a cop early Tuesday morning for having no headlights on (been there, done that), and he noticed the man's face was bloody.  He looked outside the vehicle, and noticed his front windshield was caved in.

I know what you're thinking... blah, blah, blah, we've heard that before.  Well, get this...

The cop also saw a body on the passenger seat, partially under the dashboard, along with a severed leg.  So you can just imagine the shock the cop must have felt, because I'm in shock just writing this.  Jesus.

According to the investigation, the man struck a 32-year old man whose ford explorer had broken down on the side of the road, and continued to drive 3 miles before he was pulled over.  The missing leg was later found at the site of the explorer.
Furthermore, the Police said the driver told the deputy he had hit something on the freeway and that he didn't know the victim was in the passenger seat beside him.
This is just horrible, our hearts and prayers go out to both families.

The driver now faces 10 years in prison, and up to a $10,000 fine.  Pretty steep, don't you think???

I Quote That - Some People

So let me get this STRAIGHT...

Kelsey Grammar can end a 15-year marriage by phone, 
Larry King is on divorce #9, 
Britney Spears had a 55-hour marriage, 
Jesse James & Tiger Woods, while married, were having sex with EVERYONE, 
53% of Americans get divorced and 30-60% cheat on their spouses. 
Yet, same-sex marriage is going to destroy the institution of marriage?

My friend, Jessie, posted this on her Facebook wall this morning, and I just had to share it with the rest of the world. 
Thank you, Jessie - I love you always!

The Voice: Final Performances

You know I'm going to be straight-forward with you.  

All season long I've been saying how great The Voice has been with the production, time, and sets of the show, but last night's 2-hour-long fiasco was a bit much.

The coaches commenced the show with another performance by Queen, "Under Pressure." It really wasn't that great, and when you have to see them again on stage singing with their team finalist, it kinda makes you wonder, is this promotion really necessary?  Geez, the judges have gotten more airtime than the contestants.  They also had a Ne-Yo duet with Pit Bull, and a Brad Paisley performance on top of that.

For their final performance, each of the contestants sang an original song.  Many online sites, including my partner, Ryan, mentioned that they should have sang a cover instead of an original.  I could "maybe" agree with that, but then again, I can't.  If you would have given one of these original songs, to let's say, Adam Lambert, or hell, all of the judges - they would have belted these same songs out like there were no tomorrow.  Seriously, if you cannot take an original song, and make it your own, then you have some problems.

Let's watch the performances:

Javier Colon sang "Stitch by Stitch" written by Rodney Jerkins.  Honestly, I was falling asleep listening to this number.  First, the title sounds like something out of Disney's Lilo & Stitch, and finally, like I've said it all season long.  He's just "more of the same."  Nothing unique about his voice.  If he wins, its because of "fan favorites," and not-so-much "an out of this world" performance.

Vicci Martinez sang "Afraid To Sleep" written by Butch Walker. In my opinion, this was the worst of the night.  "Afraid To Sleep," really?  You probably had difficulty sleeping last night, after this hot mess.  At this point, I'm really disappointed with the contestants.

Dia Frampton sang "Inventing Shadows" written by Frasier T. Smith.  If I had to rank last night's performances based on this song, I'd have to say Dia would be in the top 2.

Beverly McClellan sang "Lovesick" written by Bill Appleberry. Obviously the best performance of the night, Beverly actually sang the song like all the others should have.  My guess is, favoritism will decide the winner, and not so much their talent.
