To the one person I love most in this world, Ryan Joseph Lopez

Must Watch: Extended Dallas Trailer

"There is oil beneath this land... 

worth countless billions... 

every drop has a secret buried with it... 

and it all belongs to the Ewings."

Dammit, I'm excited! You can actually go to my blog and do a search of "Dallas" and you will find every blog I've written on this television series.  Ryan and I sat with me and watched all 14 seasons (14 years worth) over the last 2 years - we finished watching all 357 episodes last April.
If you're a true Dallas fan like I am; And Ryan is now.  You will not want to miss this extended trailer TNT released in December.  It is absolutely amazing and we cannot wait for the show to air this coming summer.  Word on the street is they will be releasing it in June.*crosses fingers*

Isn't This The Truth? Duck Face

Uh-huh, bitch don't lie, you know it's true!  My black girlfriends will tell you so. LOL.

Family Research Council vs. Family Equality Council

Absolutely awesome chart on what really constitutes Family Values for the two conservative and gay rights councils courtesy of Lapham's Quarterly.  Look at the striking difference between these two.  One council truly shows you the true meaning of love and family, while the other dictates what it should be.

Just how different are the conservative Family Research Council and the liberal Family Equality Council? Let’s go to the chart. - From our current issue “The Family”

Glove and Boots: Nine Movies That Make Men Cry

Too funny, but oh so true.  Mario and Fafa are back, and this time they're letting us know that "there's a team of jerks in Hollywood who dream up ways to make men cry.  They use special formulas to target your 'man' strings." LOL.  

These puppets are simply hilarious.  I've blogged about them before and they're great.  For example, they start with number nine (Braveheart) where they proceed to tell you that "really bad stuff keeps happening to Mel Gibson in this film.  He's Scottish so he has train with rocks."  LOL.  "It keeps raining on him, they kill his dad, they kill his lady friend, they kill most of his other friends. Friends they don't kill, betray him, then they torture him, then they kill him." LMAO.  

You have to watch the remaining 8 reviews. Too funny.

The Neverending Story in Real Life!!!

I don't know why, but this image is stuck in my head.  I wanted to post it earlier this morning, as it reminded me so much of one of my favorite childhood movies, The Neverending Story.
There's a point in the movie where the character, Atreyu heads to the Swamps of Sadness to see the ancient Morla, the wisest being in all of Fantasia.  Well, his horse Artax is overcome by the sadness of the swamps and ends up sinking into the mud.  Artax doesn't make it :-( - I cried.

But in this awesome true story... the horse lives!!!!

After being stuck in the mud for three hours, Astro was freed from the mud yesterday!  According the guardian, Nicole Graham was enjoying an afternoon ride on the beach when all of a sudden the ground gave way and down went Astro.  He was freed with the help of a tractor and harness.  Check out the amazing rescue here.

Katy Perry Covers Interview Magazine

Katy Perry is on the cover of Interview Magazine next month, and who knew she could look so amazing!  Ironically enough she kinda reminds me of Elizabeth Taylor in this spread.
If you haven't already heard, Katy Perry is our March covergirl. We're pretty excited (!), especially as she's interviewed by one of our favorite comedians, Kristen Wiig. Above is a sneak peek of Katy's cover, shot by Mikael Jansson and styled by Karl Templer.via Interview Magazine

Obama is back! Thank you Mr. President - We've Missed You!

Now, this is what I'm talking about.  I was watching Rachel Maddow last night and I saw this clip of President Obama speaking to the same auto workers the REDs ignored and wanted to fail.   And he let them REDs have it.  What an excellent, excellent video.  A definite must watch for those who don't believe in this man.  OMG, this video was excellent!!!

As I'm sure most of you know, The REDs have been having a field day bringing up social issues because the economy is getting better.  They're hating on us Gays, hating on women's rights, and saying the President is a "Snob" for promoting higher education (college) for our kids.  And as you know, they were not in support of saving thousands of jobs (people's jobs) in the Auto Industry, they wanted them to fail.  Well, the president made a mockery of it.  And rightly so, because everything he said in this video is absolutely true!

Obama is back!  Thank you Mr. President - We've Missed You!

That Awesome Moment...






WTF Has Obama Done? - Issue No. 021 - Transparency & Accountability

Every day individual frustration grows as concerns for our, our children and our grand-children's futures lie with the decisions of our elected representatives. We have a responsibility to let Washington know how their actions, or lack thereof, affect us before legislation is passed. We must be assured the legislation that has passed is meeting its' intended purpose. My only cause is that the voices of the people be heard.  And President Obama has done so, more than any other President in our lifetime. Imagine if George W. Bush's administration had been more transparent and accountable for their actions.

President Obama has not only released presidential records when requested, he's instructed all federal agencies to promote openness and transparency as much as possible, imposed limits on lobbyists' access to the White House, the Department of Defense has opened access to social media sites (Air Force News) and the DOD will also film all interrogations.  There are countless of other achievements President Obama has achieved in the last 3 years in regard to transparency and accountability.  Today, I'm sharing three.

Instructed all federal agencies to promote openness and transparency as much as possible.
My Administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in Government.  We will work together to ensure the public trust and establish a system of transparency, public participation, and collaboration. Openness will strengthen our democracy and promote efficiency and effectiveness in Government.

Government should be transparent.  Transparency promotes accountability and provides information for citizens about what their Government is doing. 

Government should be participatory. Public engagement enhances the Government's effectiveness and improves the quality of its decisions. Knowledge is widely dispersed in society, and public officials benefit from having access to that dispersed knowledge.

Government should be collaborative.  Collaboration actively engages Americans in the work of their Government. Executive departments and agencies should use innovative tools, methods, and systems to cooperateamong themselves, across all levels of Government, and with nonprofit organizations, businesses, and individuals in the private sector.  [Read More]

Released presidential records.
During the campaign of 2008 President Obama said this... "I will nullify the Bush attempts to make the timely release of presidential records more difficult."

On his first day in office, Obama fulfilled a promise to roll back some Bush administration restrictions on presidential records. He signed an executive order that restored a 30-day time frame for former presidents to review records before they are released. It also eliminated the right for the vice president or family members of former presidents to do the reviews.

If this sounds familiar, it may be because we covered this issue during the Democratic primary. It became a controversy because restrictions put into place under Bush potentially delayed the release of records from Hillary Clinton's time as first lady. 

Here's how the release of presidential papers generally works: When a president leaves office, the records of his administration go to the National Archives. After five years, the records are subject to public records requests under the Freedom of Information Act. Professional archivists determine which records should be publicly available, and the current and former presidents have the right to review them as well. The former president is given seven years to claim exemptions for his entire White House archive under the Presidential Records Act of 1978.

There is federal legislation that has passed the House that would codify the changes Obama made through executive order, she said, and Obama said he would support it. As of this writing, it still needed to pass in the Senate. 

"The truth is, every government bureaucracy has the potential to become secretive and cover up what it"s doing," Fuchs said. "That could happen with this administration or any other administration.

In the meantime, Obama signed the executive order as promised. Promise Kept. [Read More]

Required new hires to sign a form affirming their hiring was not due to political affiliations or contributions.
In one of his first acts as president, Barack Obama kept a campaign promise to reduce political influence in his administration by signing an executive order on Jan. 21, 2009. 

The "Executive Order on Ethics Commitments by Executive Branch Personnel" requires that appointees sign forms saying that they were not hired because of political affiliations or contributions. 

Obama "requires that government hiring be based upon qualifications, competence and experience, not political connections," according to a statement issued by his press secretary. " He has ordered every one of his appointees to sign a pledge abiding by these tough new rules as a downpayment on the change he has promised to bring to Washington.

We rate this promise as Promise Kept. [Read More-1, Read More-2]

I Want To Know What It's Like

These outstanding men and women want to know what it's like to feel wanted, loved, and accepted.  And quite frankly so do I.  What is it like to feel like I belong, to feel like I'm strong, that who I am isn't wrong?  What is it like to not feel like a freak, weak, or to be silenced when I speak?  These are the words echoed throughout this short film by Ryan James Yezak.  And what an amazing film it is.

Yezak has released a series of inspiring short films over the last few weeks in reference to his new documentary "Second Class Citizens" and his latest film below is no exception.  Each of these films leaves the viewer with an overwhelming feeling, that we as Americans deserve to be heard, deserve to love who we love, that we matter in a country that doesn't give equal protection under the law.  Thank you Ryan! I will continue to blog about your wonderful work so long as I live.

Things We Can Do To Save The Environment - Issue No. 06 - Ditch The Mansion

The Global Warming Survival Guide

Purchasing a smaller home is one of the many ways to help save the environment, and at the moment, Ryan and I are living in it.  But our future goals have us buying a much larger one.  In this day and age there are many energy saving products we can buy, so hopefully by the time we build or buy our larger home we will still be doing our part.  

Giving credit to TIME,  I'd like to thank them for showing us the many ways we can meet these goals of saving our environment.  And yes, even one person can make a difference, and it starts with YOU! - Peter aka Blade7184

6. Ditch the Mansion

Oversize houses aren't just architecturally offensive; they also generally require more energy to heat and cool than smaller ones, even with efficient appliances. And in the U.S., big houses are becoming the norm, even though a relatively inefficient small house consumes less energy than a greener large house and uses fewer building materials, which expand the carbon footprint. A typical new single-family home in the U.S. is nearly 2,500 square feet today, up from about 1,000 square feet in 1950, even as the average household has shrunk from 3.4 to 2.6 people. 

If you really want to live small, visit Jay Shafer. The former art professor dwells alone in a home fit for a hobbit, 100 sq. ft. in northern California that he designed and built himself in 1999. Shafer now runs Tumbleweed Tiny House and sells custom designs for miniature dwellings that range from 70 sq. ft. to 350 sq. ft. He made his move because he felt guilty about the size of his residential carbon footprint, and now prefers life tiny and tidy. "If I throw my jeans down on the floor, I can't get across the room.

Are People Really This Stupid? Issue No. 22 - Gone in 60 Seconds

I'm sorry, I'm doing my best here, but this is the second time this month and the third time in a row that I've come across the most dumbest question on "Yahoo Answers".  I can't take this stupidity anymore. LOL. Just kidding, I love it!

In the last issue a guy asked Yahoo Answers "why is my girlfriend unhappy?" after his girlfriend's father just passed away, and he kicked her out of the house within a week of each other.  Then wanted to know how he could make her happy again. Seriously?

This time, are 60 seconds really the same as 1 minute?  Remmy P doesn't seem to think so, and is going to Yahoo for answers....

Laugh of the Day: Oprah Repos Her Favorite Things

OMG, this was f-ing hilarious! You need to watch this.  Everybody and their mother knows Oprah, and everybody and their grandmother remembers when she used to give away her favorite things.  Well, Jimmy Kimmel decides to take a trip to the OWN offices to share some new show ideas for her television network.  For example, one of his show ideas is to have Oprah take her things back from the people she gave her favorite things to.  Let me tell you, the moment I saw Oprah taking one of her cars back, I started ROFL.  I won't say anymore, you gotta watch. This is some funny shit.

WTF Has Obama Done? - Issue No. 020 - Space Exploration & Space Station

We all know that President Obama is to blame for everything; According to the REDs anyway.  But unfortunately for them, they are wrong, and most of the country knows they are.  I can't name the number of times I've heard these fools at work or family say that its Obama's fault the Space Shuttle program ended, and that the Soviet Union (they forget there's no more Soviet Union) will regain their dominance in space and blow us to bits.  Lord help them.  I think they forgot China is on the rise, not RUSSIA.

The beginning of the end of the Space Shuttle program came with the destruction of the Space Shuttle Columbia in February, 2003 (6 years before Obama took office).  "Immediately after the accident, NASA administrator Sean O’Keefe activated the Columbia Accident Investigation Board, or CAIB. Very early in the investigation one common topic of discussion among CAIB members and staff was whether the shuttle was too dangerous to continue flying, and whether the CAIB should recommend its immediate retirement."  Those are not my words, those are from the Space Review.  The date for its 2010 retirement was set way, way before our current President took office, and until the REDs pull their heads out of their ass and read some articles from time to time, they will never learn the truth. Ugh. They frustrate me so.

Let's get started with today's achievements...

Worked with international allies on International Space Station
With the release of his fiscal year 2011 budget, President Barack Obama advanced his promise to continue working with the United States' international partners on the International Space Station.

Continuing to use the ISS over the longer term is not a foregone conclusion, since its expected retirement date is officially January 2016. But in seeking to continue utilizing the station until at least 2020, Obama followed the recommendation of the U.S. Human Space Flight Plans Committee, a blue-ribbon panel more commonly known as the Augustine Committee, after its chairman, Norman Augustine, the former CEO of Lockheed Martin.

That committee advised that "the return on investment of (the International Space Station) to both the United States and the international partners would be significantly enhanced by an extension of ISS life to 2020," according to a summary released last September. "It seems unwise to de-orbit the station after 25 years of assembly and only five years of operational life. Not to extend its operation would significantly impair U.S. ability to develop and lead future international space flight partnerships. Further, the ISS should be funded to enable it to achieve its full potential: as the nation's newest national laboratory, as an enhanced test bed for technologies and operational techniques that support exploration, and as a framework that can support expanded international collaboration."  [Read More]

Increased spending to prepare for longer space missions
Because Republicans in congress would rather spend money on causing wars, than spending it on space, this has yet to pass, but it is still considered an achievement and promise kept for the President.

During the presidential campaign, Barack Obama said his administration would "support increased investment in research, data analysis and technology development across the full suite of exploration missions including the Mars Sample Return mission and future missions to the moon, asteroids, Lagrange points, the outer solar system and other destinations."

Obama's budget proposes canceling Constellation, the successor system for the space shuttle, and jettisoning the idea of returning astronauts to the moon by 2020. Instead, NASA would allocate billions of dollars to "commercial crew" programs and the development of new technologies, as well as $3 billion over five years to pursue robotic missions "to scout locations and demonstrate technologies to increase the safety and capability of future human missions and provide scientific dividends."

As with all elements of the president's budget, nothing is final until Congress passes the relevant appropriations bills and the president signs them. In the case of exploration missions, securing the degree of investment the president wants depends in part on his administration's ability to wring savings from its proposed cancellation of Constellation, whose defenders in Congress could pose an obstacle to the president's broader space agenda. (Some of the money would come from a less controversial source, the end of the space shuttle program.)

That said, the president has not only stated a commitment to further space exploration but has proposed funding levels that outpace inflation. In our view, he has lived up to his promise to "support" such a course. Even though Congress has not yet acted to implement it, we are moving this promise from Stalled to Promise Kept. [Read More]

Added another Space Shuttle flight
Obama "supports congressional efforts to add at least one additional Space Shuttle flight to fly a valuable mission and to keep the workforce engaged. He will work to ensure there is adequate funding to support that additional flight so that it does not interfere with developing the Shuttle's successor."

As the clock ticks on the soon-to-be-retired space shuttle, the president has kept alive the hopes of scientists who want to install a device that would be used for one more experiment on the International Space Station.

First, an update on the space shuttle. The shuttle, which first orbited the Earth in 1981, is slated for retirement in 2010. The Bush administration in 2004 decided to wind down the program so that funding allocated to the shuttle could be redirected to building its successor. As a result, NASA had to cut the number of shuttle flights assigned to assembling and supporting the International Space Station. Originally, the shuttle had been expected to operate throughout the lifetime of the ISS. Under the new Bush policy, all flights were to be completed by the end of fiscal year 2010, specifically Sept. 30, 2010. 

Once in office, Obama did two things. First, with passage of the fiscal 2010 budget resolution on April 29, 2009, he presided over the removal of the Sept. 30, 2010, cutoff date for the shuttle program, giving NASA the scheduling flexibility to complete the remaining flights without excessive time pressure. Second, on May 7, 2009, Obama requested funds for the AMS mission in his fiscal year 2010 NASA budget. The mission is scheduled to launch in mid to late 2010, although it is widely expected that some shuttle launches will slip into the first half of fiscal year 2011.  [Read More]

The New iPhone 5???

If you were to go online today you would find countless and countless of iPhone 5 prototypes.  From the boring to the not-so-boring.  

Supposedly the iPhone 5 will be released later this year, and according to my love, Ryan, this will be the perfect time to get one.  We still have the original iPhone 3G, not the "3GS".   Sure it takes an hour for the maps to work and an hour for the photos to load, but it still works!  If we can still call each other every hour, it's perfect!  And since we got the phones 3 years ago, Ryan's phone has only been synched once. LOL.

In either case, are you excited about the iPhone 5, or are you happy with the one you have so long as it's still working?  Here are a few prototypes I found online.  I especially liked the one on top.

OMG Hilarious! - When I Die...


Can You Guess The Movies?

Now, this is really cool.  You'll even enjoy figuring out the movies each image represents.  You have a chocolate cake, a pie, a diamond, fruit and more. There are 12 images, and I knew the first one could only be The Chocolate Cake Factory.  I couldn't figure out 4, 7, 8 and 12.  Please leave me a comment if you figured them out.

It's Purely Animal - Issue No. 51 - Bird Lovers Beware

And this is why they make separate cages for Lions and separate cages for birdies.  Geez, this is horrible.  Ryan would say otherwise, because it was a Blue Heron that killed our Koi two years ago.  Actually, the scene around our Koi pond looked more like a slaughterhouse than a murder scene.

A YouTube commenter said it best, "Looks like Simba finally got sick of Zazu's bullshit." LMAO.

Some Pretty Cool Stuff - Issue No. 003

Yay, it's time for Some Pretty Cool Stuff, LOL.

Well... I guess that's really up to you to decide. But for me, I'm always finding cool stuff online, especially things that I need.  I will try my best to list where you can purchase the item.  If I can't find it and you do, please let me know by leaving a comment.

The Kleenex Pillow
Who could not use this thing?  Being that I have a huge problem with sinuses and I'm always sniffling and snuffling, this would be perfect!  Or if you cry watching movies in bed - c'mon do I need to keep going?  Only problem is, it's a bit pricey.  $75.00

The Portable Chair
Now you don't have to wait in line for 30 minutes, you can pull out the cardboard portable chair and have a place to sit in seconds.  You'll be reading your book in no time. LOL. $9.00

Colored Pencil Display
Being that I was in Art for 6 years (Junior High and High School), I love this colored pencil wall display.  It uses 500 colored pencils and mounted plastic casings to create not only a work of gradient-inspired wall art, but a totally convenient way to grab your pencils.  I'm sure it’s going to be a blast sharpening all these babies. $50.00

1, 2, 3, and It's Gone! Fort Steuben Demolished

Just because we all know how much I love demolition videos!  Not really, but I did want to show you this pretty awesome demolition of an old 1928 bridge.  The Fort Steuben bridge in Ohio was demolished last Tuesday at 7:15 in the morning, and what a spectacle it was.  Using 153 pounds of explosives the huge bridge literally blew up and came down within 3 or 4 seconds - it was that fast.  The cool thing about the video below; you can also watch it in slow motion as well.

Why Does The Military Love Ron Paul?

Think most military service members are donating to Mitt Romney, New Gingrich, and Rick Santorum?  Think again, they're giving their money to Ron Paul.  And why, you ask?  I imagine service members are tired of fighting endless wars.  Or maybe it has something to do with coming back home to no jobs?  Democrats say cut defense spending, Republicans scream back, "you're a terrorist".  Seriously?
The 2012 presidential race tells a different story: The lion's share of political contributions by servicemembers and defense industry workers is going to anti-war, "soft on Israel," also-ran candidate Ron Paul. In fact, the battle for their dollars isn't even close: Paul has raised at least $282,868 from individual active-duty servicemembers and Pentagon employees—more than four times what the other three Republican presidential candidates have raised, combined. (President Obama has fared slightly better, drawing $123,644 from that group, but still less than half of Paul's total. Full Story Here.

30,000 Dominoes Toppled in a Spiral

These are probably the most dominoes you will ever see toppled in your lifetime.  When do you think you'll ever have a chance to witness a bigger event?  This literally will take 9-1/2 minutes to watch.  I'm actually typing this blog as I watch the video.  Think of it more as a meditation and relaxation time for you to watch. LOL.  It would probably relieve some stress.

The Iron Lady Takes Home Oscar #3 - Complete List of Winners!

Meryl Streep's first and most recent Oscar win for Best Actress
Kramer vs Kramer & The Iron Lady
Here are the 2012 Oscar Results from the 84th Annual Academy Awards last night!  If you were like Ryan and myself, we didn't watch it.  We had more important things to watch, like The Walking Dead and Shameless, LOL.  

Actually, we didn't think highly of any of the Oscar nominations this year except for one.  I have provided a list down below courtesy of BBC.  After reviewing the winners, it looks like the 3D adventure drama, Hugo, took home the most awards last night, but the night belonged to one special lady, an Iron Lady.   

Meryl Streep won her third most-deserved Oscar for her portrayal of the former Primer Minister of England, Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady.  A big shout-out for her, she is one of my favorite actresses, alongside Glenn Close and Sally Field.
