“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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Laugh of the Day: Girl Drop

So you're walking down the street when a cute girl passing you by drops her lingerie from her shopping bag. 

Would you pick it up, and kindly chase after her to give it back? Or would you choose to leave it there?  I think the guys in the video preferred the chase.  Lol.  But to their surprise, they don't exactly find a girl around the corner either.  LMAO.

Heartbreak Mountain

I never really liked the movie Brokeback Mountain, starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger.  I guess being a gay man I should have, but it just didn't do anything for me.  Hell, I have more straight friends than gay ones who loved the movie more than Ryan or myself.  I don't know, maybe I need to watch it again or something.

In either case, the reason for this post is.... I came across a fan-made video of the movie with Adele's song, "Someone Like You" used as the backdrop.  And I'd have to say I was drawn to it, hence the reason for my blog title, Heartbreak Mountain.  You have to watch it to understand what I'm talking about.

YouTube Description:  This is a challenge I set to myself, making a video unrelated to my previous ones and this song by Adele seemed like perfect for the story of Jack and Ennis from Brokeback Mountain.

Brokeback Mountain won the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival and was honored with Best Picture and Best Director accolades from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, Golden Globe Awards, Producers Guild of America, Critics Choice Awards, and Independent Spirit Awards among many other organizations and festivals.

In the end, no matter who you love, the feelings are the same.

My special thanks to my dear friend Yellowbee for support! :)

Cool Cycles Made Out Of Old Watches

I can spot true talent when I see it.  And when it comes to Art, there is no question - I know it, love it, and admire it.  Check out these awesome, awesome Cycles made out of old watches.  They are absolutely amazing.  I loved each and every one of them - even the 4-wheeler.
Now I feel like singing, "Cool Rider" from Grease 2. LOL.  "I wanna coooool rider, a cool, cool, cool, cool rider.  I wanna C-O-O-L, R-I-D-E-R."  Sorry, got carried away there for a moment.

Cartier Impresses Viewers with Stunning Commercial

I'm posting this video, because I've already received several messages as to why I haven't done so.  My partner Ryan saw a TV spot the other night while we were watching The Walking Dead, and he thought it was really cool.  Little did he know that Cartier's short film/commercial ran a little longer than than the 30-second TV spot he witnessed (3-1/2 minutes to be exact.).  
The advertisement is quite a magnificent piece of work.  I cannot imagine how much it cost to make, but I'm sure it cost a pretty penny.  Then again if you're Cartier, money is no object.  The stunning graphics, CGI and art will take your breath away, alongside the beautiful Jewelry, of course.  It's no wonder they've been around since 1847.

YouTube Description:  Discover the new Cartier film, a journey between dream and reality. For the very first time, Cartier has decided to create a cinema epic focusing on its history, its values and inspiration, its artistic and universal scope.
