“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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Blade's Box of Jams: Track #12 - Our Deal

Currently listening to...
Best Coast
Have a hanky ready.  I've been wanting to post this for a while.  The music video below by Best Coast features several young Hollywood stars, Chloe Moretz from "Kick-Ass," Miranda Cosgrove, from "iCarly," Alia Shawkat from "Arrested Development," and Tyler Posey from "Teen Wolf."

The video, produced and directed by Drew Barrymore follows Moretz and Posey who play the romantic leads in the film.  They fall in love at first sight, much like Maria and Tony in West Side Story (which by the way Ryan and I saw for the first time this week).  Of course, it's never as easy as it seems.  You have these two lovebirds who are on opposite gangs falling for each other.  The film has a perfect way of moving you in-between the scenes, giving you hints through graffiti along the way. Definitely a pretty song. Very Romeo and Juliet, West Side Story, and Rebel Without A Cause.

OMG Hilarious! - I'm A Horse

SNL Exclusive: Politcs Nation With Al Sharpton

LOL, absolutely hilarious!  And this is why I don't watch this show on MSNBC.  Half the time I don't think Al Sharpton knows what he's talking about.  Him and that damn blueberry pie, I swear!  He does have one thing right in this clip.  Republicans do have rocks in their heads.

Poster of the Week - Issue No. 38 - Irresponsibility

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

Wow, leave it to the Japanese to come up with these insane McDonald's ads.  "Insane" meaning, pretty cool.  And why is it that foreign companies come up with the best ads, or newest products?  I never heard of this sandwich, but it does sound good. :-).  Love the couture.

Isn't This The Truth? Everytime I Make A Snack For Someone

LOL, memories.  Perfect example of me and my sister growing up.  There was no difference in our sandwiches, just that I had already chosen mine, and that was that.

The Skittles Burger

Who knew? LOL.

"What's Going On" Video Nears 8,000,000 Views

This video went viral last week.  It was all over Facebook, the blogoshphere, and practically all over the web.  It's poignant, meaningful, and it will make you cry.  It's heartbreaking that someone has to go through life feeling this way.  As parents, how can we allow this sort of thing to go on?  Was carrying your child for 9 months just a joke?

It really perturbs me to say this, but why would people condemn this video?  If you were to read some of the hateful comments people posted on this video, it would sicken you.  At least I hope it would.  

I don't get Christians, or the ones who say they "wholeheartedly" believe in God.  These same people mentioned God in their comments, yet added filthy language while posting their hateful messages at the same time.

People go so far as to say the video was a fake, that Jonah was crying fake tears and that he's just a "faggot" wanting attention.  Really?  Are you people that ignorant?  And if it was? So what!  You're still missing the message behind it. This goes on every day.  Wouldn't you want your kids to be upfront with you?  Not afraid to tell you anything.  Instead they hide in shame because you tell them, they're screwed up, need therapy or simply because carrying them for 9 months really was a joke.
