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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Movies To Watch: Olympus Has Fallen

It's no secret I'm a sucker for Presidential politics, or politics in general.  But political movies are my weakness!  

Olympus Has Fallen premieres on March 22, and already I cannot wait for this movie to hit my local theater.  The movie revolves around a group of terrorists taking over the White House and a disgraced presidential guard doing whatever he can to rescue the president.  

I'm thinking Die Hard and Independence Day, but 20 times better!  Can't Wait!

The trailer is riveting - check it out.

Yody - The Official Trailer

Leave it to Conan O'Brien to release the first official trailer of the Star Wars franchise.  

I'm sure you've read about the rumors that Disney and team are planning to make spin-offs from the Star Wars movies, right?  Supposedly they are doing this in addition to the continued Star Wars saga.  This is almost humorous in itself.

In either case, here's "Yody"

He may be only 2 feet tall and about 5 pounds, but Yoda's dream is to play Norte Dame football.

The GOP 75

Yep, the GOP 75 stands for the number of Republicans who are changing their tune when it comes to Gay marriage.  Hmmm,  I wonder how many of their flock will leave them come election day.

Some of the REDs are coming out for the first time in support of us gays and others are reversing their previous stances on the issue.

Didn't I just say last week that if the REDs didn't change their attitude toward Gays and Latinos, they will never see the White House again?  I love it when I'm right.  Okay, I'll stop boasting.

Seriously speaking, its only 75 republicans, but there could be more signing on to this very important legal brief being submitted to the Supreme Court prior to the Proposition 8 case next month.

And for those who have no idea who's been winning this case for the gays from court to court, year after year - it is Theodore B. Olson, the former Solicitor General under former President George W. Bush, and David Boise, the lawyer who represented former Vice-President Al Gore in the 2000 Presidential election.  Remember the Bush v. Gore saga?  Mr. Olson presided over Bush in that case as well.

This just goes to show that over time people can learn.  Learn that one cannot judge or hate a certain group of people.  Ted grew to believe in the fundamental and constitutional right for same-sex marriage.

The Artist Who Hides In The City

Ever seen a camouflage artist?  If not, meet Liu Bolin.  Liu likes to paint himself to blend into any background imaginable.  See if you can spot him in any of these amazing pieces of art. They are pretty darn impressive.

Next Monday Dallas Will Change Forever!

"Next Monday, Dallas will change forever" is how the TV spot for TNT's Dallas begins.

I know, I know, you're probably thinking Ryan and I are the geekiest of all geeks, but we grew to love J.R. Ewing.  After watching 15 seasons of DALLAS together, we are going to cry our eyes out next week.

"All his schemes - all his double-crossing - all his deceptions - lead to the moment - you can't miss,"  then the phone goes dead.  And just like that our hearts stop.  "DAD!"  John Ross cries out on the other end.  "The end of J.R. Ewing"  and a soft-spoken "Dad" is how the ad ends.

It's amazing how good this show has been.  Ryan and I have watched every episode and each one leaves you with the iconic cliff-hangers Dallas was made popular for.  We are truly going to miss Larry Hagman, the actor.  He survived so much and died playing the character he loved most. Rest in peace, J.R..
