“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 - - - - - - - - - - -

The Table Chair

Okay, I'm not sure where this came from, but I want one. I tried finding it online, but I found other concepts of a table/chair.  If you do happen to come across one, please let me know by leaving a comment.  I love this kind of stuff!

Gay Ads That Matter - Issue No. 009 - Sugar Baby Love [NSFW]

Ryan and I saw the movie, Breakfast on Pluto yesterday, and a song in the movie reminded him of a video I had posted on my old blog a very long time ago.  It's really cute, maybe not NSFW, but c'mon it's a cartoon.  

Introduced at the Cannes Film Festival in 2006, the film was made in reference to safe sex and AIDS awareness, one of the main reasons you see condoms throughout the video.

The song in the background is by the Rubettes, "Sugar Baby Love" I posted the lyrics after the jump.

Lyrics after the jump.

Laugh of the Day: The Lipstick Prank

It's time for the Laugh of the Day!!!  OMG, you ladies are going to love this.  This was absolutely hilarious!  

What would you do if you and your boyfriend / husband went out shopping, and after a few seconds he came out of the dressing room with some lipstick on his neck?  If I'm correct, there would be some hell to pay. And it wouldn't be a pretty sight.

Loving One Another - Issue No. 005

On December 10, 2011, I introduced my "Loving One Another" series to my BLADE 7184 readers, and I have been posting an issue every Monday since then.  

I initially started this series in 2007 on Peter's Daily Blog on MySpace.  Later, as the issues progressed I included a quote along with each photo, much the same way as my Kiss of the Week series.

And A Building Comes Tumbling Down... [video]

You may remember my post from yesterday in regards to a building being demolished in The Texas Medical Center.

Well, yesterday Ryan and I were able to watch it through a live feed streaming at home, and today several videos were posted on You Tube.  I was surprised to find so many people actually taping this from buildings in close proximity to the demolition, but it was quite fascinating.

The explosions were quite loud, so I can just imagine how it sounded for the people who were nearby.  Feel free to read more about this building from yesterday's blog.

The Pomeranian Tub

Awwww, this is too cute!  A little Pom Pom enjoying her bath.

The Secret Bracelet

What if you were kidnapped?  What if somehow you were handcuffed unwillingly?  You're first instinct would probably be to scream, right? But then again, that wouldn't help if you were knocked out and handcuffed afterwards. 

In either case, I bring you the Paracord Bracelet.  Yep, the bracelet with an undetectable plastic handcuff key!  It's so very James Bond, I love it.  The unique key is in the buckle itself.  You would simply unsnap the bracelet from your wrist, tear out the key, and ta-da! You're Free!!!  The handcuff key fits most handcuff models.

A Convicted Prisoner Would Be Better Than Gay Parents

Oh, you gotta love our Republican candidates as they continue on their crusade to overturn everything our current President has done.
Ryan and I watched the debates on Saturday and Sunday, and I'd have to say they were the best ones yet.  I know what you're thinking - we're dorks, but who else would keep you informed of the current political news? LOL.  

In either case, we watch them because it's like comedy hour.  They literally make us laugh.  Rick Perry was applauded for finally stating the three government programs he would cut, and then went off on why we should go back into Iraq.  We should go in there "literally at the speed of light," he said.  I think he meant to say "figuratively".  Jesus Christ, somebody help him please.

These are the kind of people who applauded the death of a man for not having health insurance, booed a gay man who served several tours of duty in Iraq, and who would rather have a man in prison take care of your children instead of Ryan or myself.

According to the LA Times, citing the work of one anti-poverty expert, Santorum said, "He found that even fathers in jail who had abandoned their kids were still better than no father at all to have in their children's lives."

Allowing gays to marry and raise children, Santorum said, amounts to "robbing children of something they need, they deserve, they have a right to. You may rationalize that that isn't true, but in your own life and in your own heart, you know it's true."

David (my previous partner) and I raised two little girls together and to this day, they have been raised by a wonderful Mother who loves them, and Gay Parents (David and his current partner) who have helped nourish them in their teen years.  I was their soccer coach when they were 4-1/2 through 11 years old, and I'd have to say they have grown into two upstanding young ladies. 17 and 16 now, they're honor students, play in concerts, sports, etc. and continue to excel in everything they set their heart and mind to do.  I love them and always will.  I will forever be their "Papa Pete".

Children Playing The Guitar

I, personally, don't think the author titled this video correctly.  I think the kids in the video did a very good job.  It takes a lot of talent to learn music, play a guitar and perform in front of an audience.  And for the kids being as young as they are, I don't find it creepy whatsoever.  I find it quite impressive.

Watch as these North Korean children strum their guitars on stage.
