“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 - - - - - - - - - - -

A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words - Issue No. 10

This is pretty cool.  And if you're a Texan you'll definitely want to share this.  A gentleman by the name of Nathan Hoang used to live in Texas for 25 years.  He started to get a little homesick so he took on a project he hopes to continue for the 50+1 states.

He listed all the things he missed about Texas and made it into a poster.  A "Love Letter" to his home state.  He's also made a video and explains why he would like to call his project "HOME".  Feel free to check this out on his kickstarter page.
It's been 3 months since I posted an issue of "A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words", so for those who haven't seen my previous issues I started this series as a way to introduce my readers to the world of art through words.  And by words, I mean where the artist has taken several hundred pieces of text and created a masterpiece; it could be a self-portrait, landscape or still-life.  It's called Typographical Art, much like a typographical quote you see posted on a Facebook news feed from time to time. But with hundreds, if not thousands of words instead of just a few.

Game of Thrones' George R. R. Martin Reacts to Fans viewing The Red Wedding

So as you know, earlier in the week I posted a recap of Sundays night's episode of Game of Thrones.  A couple of days later a video of fans reacting to this episode surfaced online; I didn't blog about it.  


Conan O'Brien had the infamous author, George R. R. Martin as a guest on his show and showed him the video.  Check it out.

Get Your 2013 Orthodox Calendar Today!

I'm sure this is something you didn't expect to see so early in the morning; Orthodox Priests in a calendar spread.  Yeah, it's true.  I was reading about it over at WOW and apparently these priests thought it would be best "to strike a pose and openly stand for who they are underneath the priest’s clothing they wear: Regular people with passions, preferences, interests and desires.
And before all of you straight people go crazy, shouting blasphemous words, because you're "Christian", these priests are more than likely not gay.  They did this in support of gay rights. "All are open-minded and believe that besides their passionate devotion to the Orthodox Church, it is important to be perceived as individuals committed to diversity and acceptance."  Yes, it's a little odd to do a homoerotic spread, but hey we'll take what we can get, right?  And we support our Advocates. :-)
From their website:
And this is what brings them closer to the rest of us. Starting today, anyone can discover our 12 seductive artistic pictures of Orthodox priests and their guests by simply ordering on-line. The price per piece is only EUR 10! Images are available directly from our Facebook account. But if you are curious to find out more, you can write to pr@orthodox-calendar.com or l.monroe@mac.com.”
