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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Kiss of the Week - Issue No. 019

"The first kiss is the passionate one; it’s the one filled by desire and attraction and all that. But the second one is rational; you get time to think about it, worry and over analyze. Most prefer that first kiss, but I’m partial to the second one because it’s about something more."

Movies in Rewind: We Need To Talk About Kevin

I'm telling you right now, if you haven't seen this movie, don't.  If you do, be prepared.  While the movie is just a movie, it is by far, one that was very painful to see.  Ryan and I watched "We Need To Talk About Kevin" a week before the recent shootings in Colorado, and boy did it hit close to home when we saw the news unfolding before our eyes.

The movie is mostly about a young teenager named Kevin, and his mother, Eva, played by Tilda Swinton.  It tells the story through the eyes of Eva, who deals with an event that happened in the past, but recent enough to where Kevin is about to turn 18.  This particular event is so tragic that it will leave you speechless at the end of the movie.  But what was so sad about this whole scenario being played out before our eyes, was knowing that these things truly do happen.

Ever since this boy, Kevin was born Eva knew something wasn't right, but no one cared to listen, especially her husband.  And as the boy grew up, the more disturbing the situation became.  This was a very powerful movie indeed.

You can check out the trailer below. 

Television Networks: Who Owns Them All?

All you folks watching anything owned by Disney and ABC are going to hell. Just ask God.

Here's a small chart showing you who owns what, who makes the most, who owns the most, and a little bit of history.  Check it out, it's pretty cool.

Quoted: One Direction's Louis Tomlinson on Gay Rumors

This is a subject that was funny at first but now is actually hard to deal with as I am in a relationship.... Me and Harry are best friends, people look into our every move...  it is actually affecting the way me and Harry are in public. We want to joke around but there seems to be a different rumor every time we do anything. - Louis Tomlinson in an interview with MTV
Seriously though, if you don't want the rumors floating around, stop kissing and loving all over each other in public. Geez. LOL. Remember these photos?

Isn't This The Truth? You Drink To Make Something Happen

I'll admit it, I've done it all. lol, the memories.

Laugh of the Day: Highway Scare Prank

I don't know which is more funny; the husband pranking the wife by making her think a semi is heading straight into them, the scared look on her face, or the fact that he's going to get his ass beaten for posting the video.

Either way, it's Priceless!

Food For Thought...

And you know I had to double check with the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Factcheck.org websites to make sure that what I was posting, was in fact, true.

But yeah, as I've been saying all along, the same people who are voting for no government intervention are the same people who use more of it.

Seriously folks, we have swaths of counties surrounding our area that consist of nothing but beer-chugging, backyard partying, food stamp-whoring people who are voting against their own interests. Lol.  It's almost too funny not to laugh.
The most recent Department of Agriculture report on the general characteristics of the SNAP program’s beneficiaries says that in the fiscal year that ended Sept. 30, 2010:
  • 47 percent of beneficiaries were children under age 18.
  • 8 percent were age 60 or older.
  • 41 percent lived in a household with earnings from a job — the so-called “working poor.”
  • The average household received a monthly benefit of $287.
  • 36 percent were white (non-Hispanic), 22 percent were African American (non-Hispanic) and 10 percent were Hispanic (Table A.21).

Batman: Nightwing

If you're a comic book fan, or a Batman fan in general, You'll more than likely enjoy watching this short video.  While I'm not a huge fan of Batman, I have seen all the movies.  I'm more of a Superman / Wonder Woman kinda guy :-)

With only a few hundred bucks and not much time putting it together, I think Jeremy Le & Danny Shepherd did a decent job with Batman's sidekick, Nightwing (whos' kinda hot btw) LOL.

Khaleesi From Game of Thrones... In Pixar?

Khaleesi & Her Dragons.

I guess if you're a Game of Thrones fan you would appreciate this more.  I think it's pretty cool, so I had to share it.  

It has a Pixar feel to it, don't you think?

Are People Really This Stupid? Issue No. 28 - I'm Pregnant With My Dad's Baby

This just boggles my mind.  

I know I've been gone for a month, but the stupidity still lingers on...  I didn't know whether to post this as part of my "What A Hot Mess" series, or this one.  I guess they're both one and the same.  Well... not all the time.  

Seriously?  You hypocrites, haters (or whatever you call yourself these days) don't want Ryan and I to get married, but this is somehow okay?  Oh, but it happened in the Bible all the time, so it's okay.  Or is that the part where you can have multiple wives?

The Cities Where A Paycheck Stretches The Furthest

So now you can add the city of Houston to another list of accomplishments.
Not only has the fourth largest city in the nation been previously ranked the #1 fastest growing city in North America - it's #1 in job growth, #1 in manufacturing, #1 in wage growth, and the #1 world's fastest growing metro area.   And if that isn't enough for you, it can now call itself the #1 best city to live in.  

According to Forbes Magazine, Houstonions can stretch their paychecks much further than any other city in the country.  Houston has the lowest cost of living when it comes to utilities, transportation, consumer pricing, and most importantly housing costs; Buying a house in Houston has never been more affordable.

Check out the article here, and be proud of our city.  Don't worry Austin, Dallas, and Fort Worth - you rank 5th and 8th respectively.
