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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Everyday Is Thanksgiving Day

To me, everyday is Thanksgiving Day.  I don't think a day passes by that I'm not thankful for something.  A lot of people take their days for granted.  They look at yesterday as a mistake or wishing that day would never have happened.  At some point in that twenty-four hour period you had to be grateful for something.  Whether it be another breathing day of life, waking up next to the person you love, or for simply having that cup of coffee in the morning.

We often times encounter difficult days... the loss of a loved one, a terrible disease, a hurtful breakup, a car accident, unpaid bills, trouble at work, or you're just having a bad day.  One thing to remember, there are people out there who have it far worse than you, and they're thankful for every day they get the chance to live.  They pray that they're not hung from a noose for being gay, stoned to death for having an affair, or humiliated in front of millions of people for speaking against their government.  

So the next time you feel at your worst, take that tiny glimmer of hope (that one second, minute, or hour), and be thankful that you're you.

Have a Safe and Happy Thanksgiving.

A Single Line of Fine Art

The moment I saw this video online, I knew I had to share it.  It's pretty darn cool.  Chan Hwee Chong, an artist from Singapore recreates famous works of art, all by using a single line.

In an inspired advertising campaign for Faber-Castell, designer Chan Hwee Chong demonstrates his unbelievable talent by creating spiral illustrations inspired by some of the most popular masterpieces in history. 

Using the above mentioned company’s pens, he starts with a blank canvas, and by drawing a continuous line in a spiral he somehow manages to make detailed reproductions of the famous works of art. 

The level of precision and control in Chong’s creations is simply amazing, and although I watched a short video of him in action, I’m still not sure how he manages to achieve such detailed reproductions with a single line. [source]

Kiss of the Week - Issue No. 001

When I started my "Kiss of the Week" series in 2007 on Peter's Daily Blog, I never thought I would get as far as I did with it.  At the beginning I was only posting photos of two hot guys kissing, but later incorporated a "Quote of the Day" with it - and the rest is history.

Over the next few months I will be posting my original posts and slowly introducing the series to my current blog BLADE 7184.  So without further adieu, here's the first issue...

Thanksgiving Warning

Quoted - The Salvation Army on Homosexuality

“Sexual attraction to the same sex is a matter of profound complexity. Whatever the causes may be, attempts to deny its reality or to marginalize those of a same-sex orientation have not been helpful. The Salvation Army does not consider same-sex orientation blameworthy in itself. Homosexual conduct, like heterosexual conduct, requires individual responsibility and must be guided by the light of scriptural teaching. Scripture forbids sexual intimacy between members of the same sex. The Salvation Army believes, therefore, that Christians whose sexual orientation is primarily or exclusively same-sex are called upon to embrace celibacy as a way of life. There is no scriptural support for same-sex unions as equal to, or as an alternative to, heterosexual marriage. Likewise, there is no scriptural support for demeaning or mistreating anyone for reason of his or her sexual orientation. The Salvation Army opposes any such abuse.”
