“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.

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 #13 - Hard Candy Christmas

Currently listening to...
 Dolly Parton
Not sure how many of you have ever seen the movie, The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, but it is by far one of my favorite movies.  Not only because it stars country music legend and gay icon, Dolly Parton, but because the nature of the story behind it.  She had two of her most memorable songs debut on this movie, "Hard Candy Christmas" and "I Will Always Love You",  both of which became her biggest hits.  The movie also boasts a couple more songs that will rile anybody up.  They are fun and energetic - you'd almost think it was a musical.

Two YouTube commenters, summed it best:
Gid I love this song, have since I was a little gir...I am 33 now and its still my ultimate top favorite christmas song!! - DarcyHeartsElvis
I think the song depicts all trials and tribulations that we go through..I know for me, it is from a house fire that we had back in July and though they said we would be back in our home for Christmas, thanks to the screwed up insurance company, it won't be until after Christmas..Also, because of the insurance company not living up to the policy that we bought, my daughter and I are not going to have much of a Christmas thanks to no money..But we are not going to let that get us down...- MsDiscouraged

The Science Behind Santa

So how does Santa see all those children on Christmas eve?  Science suggests that only 33 percent of the world population believes in Christmas, and when one calculates the different time zones, along with an average 1 out of 3 kids per household not on the naughty list... oh wait... but then you have to calculate the weight of the presents, calculate the amount of time it takes to stop at each house and go down the chimney...
We learn that Santa needs to visit 1,800 houses per second in order to deliver all of his toys, meaning he travels at 24,000 times the speed of sound. (Not that plausible, but who knows what kind of magic Santa is capable of?) One reality that is harder to explain away is the fact that by traveling so fast, the reindeer will absorb so much energy in flight that "they will burst into flame almost instantaneously." Oh, poor Rudolph! But who knows, maybe they wear some kind of flame-retardant suits that Mrs. Claus makes for them. - Jezebel

Margaret Thatcher On The Cover of Newsweek

Margaret Thatcher landed on the cover of Newsweek and I forgot to share it with you.  Oh, I'm sorry, my bad - did I say Margaret Thatcher?  I meant Meryl Streep.  She has such an uncanny resemblance to the former Prime Minister of Britain.

There hasn't been a movie I haven't liked where Streep has played a part in it.  From Silkwood, Marvin's Room, Angels in America, Mamma Mia!, Lions for Lambs, and The Hours, the list goes on.  She's an amazing actress.  Hence, the reason I can't wait to see her new movie, The Iron Lady which opens January 06, 2012.
