“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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Must Watch: Everyday We're Shuffling....

For all you Drum Corps and Marching Band fans, the Ohio University’s Marching band performed LMFAO’sParty Rock Anthem,” during their half-time show last Saturday in Athens, Ohio.

I absolutely loved it!  For all you folks that don't know, I dated a girl who played an instrument in High School, so marching bands hold a special place in my heart.  My high school marching band was very competitive when I was growing up. Our band always got a 1 in district competitions, and when I was there, it was like 30 or so years the band had earned them in a row.  They were so close to winning several state competitions when I was in school.

Added to my fascination with marching bands, my current partner, Ryan was in a high school marching band, and one of our best friends, Michael is a Colorguard Director for a school near Houston, TX.

Are People Really This Stupid? Issue No. 9

Talk about having a bridge party.  Why don't we all risk our lives like this?  Geez.  Are people really this stupid?  Using a few cables, a wooden platform, a homemade hot tub, and a few friends, a group of “extreme jacuzzi” fanatics dangled 128 feet off the side of the 620 foot Gueuroz Bridge in Switzerland.
It took six hours to assemble the makeshift hot-tub and about 2500 hours to plan to mission. Water was heated in a second jacuzzi on the bridge and lowered onto the platform where a gas-powered system kept it warm.
I don't know about you, but if it's 38 degrees outside, I'd be at home cuddling with my partner eating popcorn and watching a show.  Not dangling off the side of a bridge like an idiot.  Am I being too harsh? 
And yes, if you're interested you can see more pics and how it was assembled here.

Back In The Day - Michael Jackson, Elizabeth Taylor and Macaulay Culkin

It's crazy, but one of these celebrities is not like the other.  

I was feeling a bit nostalgic, and thought I'd post a pic from back in the day - when Michael Jackson and Elizabeth Taylor were still alive.  Macaulay Culkin still lives...

and the child star doesn't look to shabby for 31...
