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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Spartacus Returns With A Vengeance

And on January 27th, with a vengeance we will watch.  Ryan and I are so excited for the new season of Spartacus, which is awesomely titled Spartacus: Vengeance.

We have Spartacus: Gods of the Arena and Spartacus: Blood and Sand on Blu-ray, and OMG the entire series is absolutely fantastic.  If you haven't watched it, you need to.  Sure there's a lot of flesh, but it's satisfying for both straights and gays! LOL.

Here is where the series picks up:
"On the heels of the bloody escape from the House of Batiatus that concluded "Spartacus: Blood and Sand", the gladiator rebellion continues and begins to strike fear into the heart of the Roman Republic in "Spartacus: Vengeance". Gaius Claudius Glaber and his Roman troops are sent to Capua to crush the growing band of freed slaves that Spartacus leads before it can inflict further damage. Spartacus is presented the choice of satisfying his personal need for vengeance against the man that condemned his wife to slavery and eventual death or making the larger sacrifices necessary to keep his budding army from breaking apart. Containing all of the blood-soaked action, exotic sexuality, and villainy and heroism that has come to distinguish the series, the tale of Spartacus resumes in epic fashion." - STARZ
You may recall Andy Whitfield left the series after being diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma about 2 years ago.  He has since passed away, but his legacy lives on in Liam McIntyre, the new actor who replaced him.

View the new trailer here:

U.S. Olympic Swimmer Thomas Finchum

As I'm sure all of you know, every 4 years we elect a U.S. President there is a Summer Olympics to go with it, and this year is no exception.  The Olympics will be held in London this year, and I'm sure it's going to be absolutely fabulous!  I cannot wait!  

Swimming and Gymnastics are my favorite sports, hence the reason I can't wait to have a our favorite gay boy back in the spotlight, U.S. Olympic Swimmer, Thomas Finchum.  He is so yummy!

The Lazy Jedi

You Star Wars fans will love this.  Especially you lazy ones, because if you could you would. LOL.  

Master Dave just doesn't feel motivated today. With great power eventually comes great laziness.

Quoted: David Furnish on Madonna Receiving a Golden Globe

I think it was a fluke. When this happens you have to question the integrity of the awards. Did Madonna get the Golden Globe because she attended the awards and agreed be a presenter? Can you sing Madonna’s song? Can you hum it? It’s a song nobody has heard, from a film few have seen. The award should have gone to Mary J. Blige or Elton. I like Madonna’s music, but not her movies. She should stick to what she is good at.

Must Watch: Lionel Richie’s 'Hello' Re-Created with Movies

Seriously?  Who has time to do these videos? LMAO.  Remember that video I posted last week of President Obama singing Lady Gaga's "Born This Way"?  
Well... we're back for round two.  And this time it's Lionel Richie's "Hello" re-created with movie clips.  Check it out, it's pretty darn funny, but cool nonetheless.  Thanks for sharing Sean Hodges!

Back In The Day - Lego circa 1989

Wow, seeing this today really brought back memories.  Oh, how I loved my Legos, and I had this very box too!  I truly miss being a child.  Yes, I've grown wiser over the years, but it would be nice to go back in time just for a moment.

President Obama's Birthday Message to Betty White

I absolutely loved this when I saw it on Hardball last night. It was downright hilarious.  As most of you know by now, Betty White turned 90 yesterday.  The iconic "Golden Girl" celebrity was given a birthday wish from our President.  Check it out.  It's pretty funny.

If The World Were A Village of 100 People: Issue No. 20 - Energy

Wow, I have completed the series!   This is the 20th and final poster of my series "If The World Were A Village of 100 People".

For the past 20 weeks I have been blogging about these posters designed by Toby Ng, where he took statistics based on the spread of the population in the world today and translated those statistics into a town of 100 people.  So you'd ask yourself, "What if the world were a village of 100 people?" And these posters would answer that question in a much more simpler way.

In my humble opinion I think these posters were a great educational tool.  And they would be great to share with your kids or a classroom.

Issues No. 01 - 19

Stay tuned for a whole new series next week...
