“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. Kennedy - - - - - - - - - - - - “Imagine finding someone you love more than anything in the world, who you would risk your life for but couldn’t marry. 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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Aye, Aye, Aye, Francisco!

It' seems like forever since I talked about Francisco Lachowski.  It's because he was on my very first blog post from January 15, 2011

Isn't he fucking delicious!?!?  Jesus, Mary, mother of God.  UGH!  

Happy Sunday everyone!


Let Me Out Of My Skin

You all know how much I love art and photography.  I was in art for 4 years in high school and wanted to pursue it in college, but my goals in life turned out a little different.  But there's no question, I can still admire, write about, and enjoy the beauty of it all.  

Using integrated photography and CGI, Taylor James has created a series of striking images resembling a science fiction movie. In the first set, a brunette sheds her old body similar to that of a snake.  An internal struggle takes place in the second series, while the third features women hatching from their shells.

Absolutely stunning!  The Taylor James Studio was founded in 1999 by Glen Taylor, and works at the forefront of digital production.  It blends innovative storytelling with technical expertise. 

Check out the second and third series to this amazing collection after the jump..

Poster of the Week - Issue No. 24 - Flattery

Continuing alphabetically, I bring you this week's poster, "Flattery".

What You Really Need Is...

If you crave Chocolate, then you should have nuts, seeds and fruits. Hmmm???

If you crave chewing ice, what you really need is iron. So instead of chewing ice, you should really eat meat, fish, poultry, seaweed, greens, and black cherries.

Personally, I'll stick to chewing ice.

Cover Wars 6 - The Results

The results are in, and the Gold Record this month goes to Abraham Lim.  His rendition of Adele's "Someone Like You" was up against 5 other covers to this song. In the end he managed to edge out fellow singer, Eli Lieb by one vote.  I have notified Abraham of his win this morning.

I thought everyone did a fantastic job with Adele's song, and I would definitely buy all their covers.  Thanks to Sean RumseyEli Lieb, Benjamin, Chris Kennedy from The Shures, and Nick Gardner, who "I" put up against a formidable opponent.  This in no way undermines your awesome vocal abilities, you were all great.

And finally, a big "thank you" goes out to all my readers for taking the time to vote on this month's Cover War.

Congratulations Abraham!  If you ever "Google" your name or a cover to a particular song, and you somehow manage to stumble upon my blog, I wish you the very best on your endeavours.

Let's listen to your cover once more...
