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 If Mom Thought You Were Gay and You Were Not?

You've probably heard it asked over dinner and conversation, or maybe even a television show, "How can I tell if my son is gay?

But what what if your mom thought you were gay and you were not?

I was reading an article online when I came across a comment from one of it's readers.  Absolutely touched by it, I had to share it with you.
"My mother was in a nursing home in Utah towards the end of her life and I was in Florida. I'm not gay, but my best friend since kindergarten is gay and we have lived together several different times over the years and we were doing so at the time of this story.

My sister called me out of the blue to tell me mom was telling everyone I was gay.

My sister told her, "No, Mark and Doug aren't boyfriends. Doug has a boyfriend." My mom teared-up and said, "Oh, no! Does Mark know?"

I've always loved my mom, but loved her just a bit more when I learned that she wasn't really concerned about me being gay, but she was terribly upset that my supposed boyfriend was cheating on me."

That is soooo damn sweet! And this is how parents should love their children.

Isn't This The Truth? Twisted

LMAO!  Isn't this the truth!  I hate when this shit happens.  I swear, the moment I put my headphones in my pockets they throw themselves into this convoluted mess!

Blade's Box of Jams: Track #8 - 7 Minutes In Heaven

Currently listening to... 

School Boy Humor

I came across this group on Facebook and I'd have to say, OMG! These guys are hot! Of course their bodies caught my attention, because who doesn't like looking at guys with hot bodies? But that's besides the point.

School Boy Humor is a group from Arkansas created by twin brothers, Phil and Anthony Evans. They write their own music and recently released their latest hit, "7 Minutes In Heaven".  Check out the track below, and as an added treat there are some really hot pics of the twins after the jump.

Foods That Will Make You Fat - Issue No. 22

I know all of you enjoy this particular segment.  Who doesn't want to know what other people are eating?  Who doesn't want to know what will surely cause them an early death?  Foods That Will Make You Fat, keeps you informed of all the latest trends in eatery.  Even though fast food restaurants are guilty of introducing us to ridiculous concoctions, most of these foods are put together by regular folks like you and me.  What drives one to create a hot mess of a recipe?
The Pizza Cone
This crazy idea gained popularity in Brazil, Portugal, and Italy, when a banker thought it would be a brilliant idea to introduce it to the fattest country in the world.  Did you hear that?  The fattest country in the world!  People are so excited that some are saying "You can totally walk with it, and you don't have the oil dripping all over you."  Key words: Oil and Dripping.  I guess it isn't such a crazy idea, it's a hit in Manhattan, New York.
The Fat Elvis
Really?  We all know Elvis was fat in his later years, but do we need to be reminded why he died.  I mean... this sandwich is stuffed with butter, peanut butter, bananas, bacon, honey and confectioner's sugar.  Not only will you become diabetic, but you'll collapse while cooking this shit.
The Spamsicle
Who the hell created this monstrosity?  Seriously? If I wanted some type of "sicle" in my menu, it definitely wouldn't be a deep fried piece of processed meat.  And with the beaten eggs, seasoned flour, and Japanese bread crumbs added you'll have enough carbs to last for the rest of year, if not your life.  So much for your Atkins diet.

Quoted: Steve Jobs

"Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart...

No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true." 
                                        - Steve Jobs (CEO of Apple Computer and
                                          of Pixar Animation Studios, in a June 12, 
                                          2005 commencement address to Stanford 

"My first computer was an apple.  It had a huge ass keyboard, and used those huge 5 inch floppy disks.  It had a black screen and the letters were all in green - very matrix. LOL.  In either case, it truly is a sad day to know that Steve Jobs has passed away, but his legacy will live in the hearts and souls of many for thousands of years.  He was the Einstein of our generation, and I can't name one person in this era who has done more to change the world, than he.  R.I.P. Steve."                    - Blade 7184 aka Peter
