“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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Movie Poster Clichés

So how many movie posters or DVD covers have you seen or rented where, let's say, you have a pic of an actor taken from the back often with weaponry?  You'd be surprised - I bet you've seen 10 or more.  How about where the actors are standing back to back?  I bet you've seen 15 or more.  Check out these movie poster clichés, they're pretty darn cool - I would have never realized.

1.  Big heads in the sky over tiny people on a beach

2.  From the back (often with weaponry)

3.  Big text on faces

4.  Back to back

5.  In bed

6.  Through the legs

7.  Big eye

8.  Blue

9.  Running for their lives

10. Cute Red Dress

What no Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope?? Luke and Leia are standing pretty much back to back. Leia has a blaster pistol, and Luke is holding his father's Lightsaber!! That is unless a Lightsaber isn't considered a weapon??

hmmm. i just looked at the Star Wars IV movie poster and dvd covers and they don't look like they're back to back. I do see one close enough, but not really.

Maybe my memories bad, but I thought they were on the original movie poster. It's time to get my Star Wars Sourcebooks out! lol

Faces on a beach = romantic drama

From the back = action

Text on faces = drama with some action

Back to back = romantic comedy

In bed = comedy

Legs = Sex comedy

Big eye = mostly horror

Blue = foreign animal documentary

Running = thriller

Red dress = everything else
