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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Oh So Very True!

Must Watch: The Lego Story

If you're in your 70's, 60's, 50's 40's, 30's, 20's, 10's or even 5, you'll enjoy this video.

Celebrating 80 years, Lego has put together a Pixar-esque video that is pretty darn cool - I really enjoyed watching it.  

The video tells the story of how Lego came to be, and the origin of the famous painful-foot-stabbing bricks.  LOL.  You won't be disappointed.

Hell, If I'm correct, my mom still has my original Legos I played with as a kid.  I need to have a talk with her. :-)

To Quill or Not To Quill

This picture looks kinda funny, huh?  Well, I'm sure the dog doesn't think so. She came upon a Porcupine that didn't want to be disturbed and the doggie got a face full of quills.  500 of them!  Ouch!

She underwent extensive surgery to have them removed, but some are still lodged in her.  Bella Mae is currently in recovery.

Zac Efron Does John John Denim

I'm not sure where I read it, or who said it; but I think they said it best when describing Zac Efron in his recent photo shoot for John John Denim.
"It's pretty disturbing that the guy in the photo is prettier than the female models he's posing with."
Sorry ladies, I thought it was pretty funny and somewhat true.

Must Watch: Cut The World by Antony & The Johnsons

Starring actress Carice Van Houten and actor Willem Dafoe, this music video will leave  you with your mouth wide open.  I really don't know what to say about this video, aside from the fact that it was brilliant? Splendiferous?  You decide.  Maybe by watching it a second time you'll understand it more.  
The video does come with a statement, "This video may not be suitable for all audiences. Viewer discretion is advised."

Cyanide and Happiness: Nightmares

Quoted - "We Need To Talk About Kevin" Star Comes Out

I’m queer. I have a lot of really wonderful friends who are of very different sexes and genders. I am very much in love with no one in particular. I’ve been trying to figure out relationships, you know? I don’t know if it’s responsible for kids of my age to be so aggressively pursuing monogamous binds, because I don’t think we’re ready for them. The romanticism within our culture dictates that that’s what you’re supposed to be looking for. Then [when] we find what we think is love — even if it is love — we do not yet have the tools. I do feel that it’s possible to be at this age unintentionally hurtful, just by being irresponsible — which is fine. I’m super down with being irresponsible. I’m just trying to make sure my lack of responsibility no longer hurts people. That’s where I’m at in the boyfriend/girlfriend/zefriend type of question.Ezra Miller (Kevin in We Need to Talk About Kevin) comes out in the latest issue of Out magazine.
