“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 - - - - - - - - - - -

It's Purely Animal - Issue No. 46 - Underwater Dogs

Seeing these photos remind of Spirit aka "Baby" - a Pitbull Ryan's parents own.  He loves to jump in their swimming pool during the summer months, and I'm sure he pretty much resembles these amazing photos.
Pet photographer, Seth Casteel took these photos of dogs nose-diving for their toys underwater.  It's interesting to see how the water transforms their sweet innocent faces into ferocious-looking animals underwater.  You can check out Seth's prints which are available for purchase at Little Friends Lifestyle Pet Photography.  Check them out.

Poster of the Week - Issue No. 45 - Mediocrity

Continuing alphabetically, I bring you this week's poster, "Mediocrity".

Quoted - Dolly Parton Upon Hearing The News of Whitney Houston's Death

"Mine is only one of the millions of hearts broken over the death of Whitney Houston. I will always be grateful and in awe of the wonderful performance she did on my song ["I Will Always Love You"], and I can truly say from the bottom of my heart, 'Whitney, I will always love you. You will be missed.' "

Must Watch: Happy Valentine's Day Rube

Nearly a month ago I showed you a video from Joseph Herscher who put together A Real Page Turner.  He set up a Rube Goldberg to turn a page of newspaper for him.  It was pretty darn impressive.

Well, since it's Valentine's Day in two more days, why don't we have a Date Night Rube?
Courtesty of 2D House, this Rube took them several days to complete, but I'm more than sure it was fun and challenging to say the least.  

Watch as a styrofoam ball falls onto a piece of wood, knocking it off and starting a chain reaction that will have a toy Spiderman twirling around a stick, kicking a golf ball that leads to the eventual pouring of wine through a funnel which ends up into two wine glasses.  But it doesn't stop there.... the Rube continues, turning some music on, some lights, and so forth... check out this excellent video to see what happens next.

Star Wars 3D Will Not Change Anything

I'm not sure what George Lucas is drinking? But he's obviously gone off the deep end much like Britney Spears and Anne Heche did 'back in the day.'  By now everyone has either heard or read about his grandiose idea of re-editing his films into 3D.  Fans are outraged, but personally, they are his movies and he can do with them as he pleases.  I think you should buy the movies as they are now, before they're gone forever. LOL.

The Force is gone with this one: Why 3D will do little to improve Star Wars
A long time ago, in this very galaxy, Star Wars was a great film. Sadly, after his glorious pinnacle of creativity, George Lucas started a downward slide and ended up hacking away at his own legacy.
