“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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Must Watch: A Day Made of Glass 2: Unpacked

I just finished watching this video and was so mesmerized by it I watched all 11 minutes of it.  And to think we should have been buying Corning shares while everyone was making fun of their dishware.

My mother used to have their glass cookware, and while it wasn't as great as steel or aluminum, Corning changed our future in more ways than you could possibly ever know.  I am truly envious of the future our children and grandchildren will have. 

Watch and share "A Day Made of Glass 2: Unpacked," to see how Corning's highly engineered glass, with companion technologies, will help shape our world. Take a journey with our narrator for details on these technologies, answers to your questions, and to learn about what's possible -- and what's not -- in the near future.

Create Art Using Your Old Cassette Tapes

Being that I'm a huge fan of anything artistic in nature, I had to share these awesome images from artist, Erika Iris Simmons. She used old cassette tapes and created art by using the tape running inside these little boxes of music.  From Kurt Cobain, Michael Jackson, and Bob Marley to Blondie, The Beatles, and John Lennon - they are all pretty darn cool.  She even created art using old film reels and video cassette tapes - you can check those out on her Flickr page.
Source: Erika is a self-taught artist currently residing in Atlanta, Georgia. In her incredible series titled Ghost in the Machine, Erika uses film from recycled cassette tapes and old film reels to create fantastic portraits of iconic artists and musicians. Below is a small sample of this wonderful series. You can find the complete gallery on iri5′s Flickr page.
