(no subject)

Somedays, good news just has a way of coming out of nowhere and making you change your whole perspective on things. This kind of news makes me very happy!: Tears For Fears Reunited, Set To Release New Disc Next Month. They were such a highly underrated band, definitely one of my top 5 favorites to come out of the 80's. For those of you unfamiliar with their music, especially the stuff that wasn't radio-friendly, you are truly missing out. I can make copies if anyone wants, and if you're not local and want copies, all I ask for the postage it will take to send it to you.

Then there is this bit of news: Log Cabin Republicans' Ad Attacking Bush. The headline alone made me giggle.

Of course, there is both good and bad news. Some other things that I read that both made me smile and made my blood boil and curdle were:

Michigan Gay Marriage Ban Fails - Vive Le Common Sense!

Gay Marriage Foe's Son Weds Same-Sex Partner - How do you like THEM apples?

NY Cardinal Lectures Assembly On 'Evils' Of Gay Marriage, or as I prefer to call this, "Reason 3,973,206 Why I Hate Everything The Catholic Church Stands For"

No Gay Marriage No Civil Unions Declares Jeb Bush - So speaks the spineless brother of the idiot son of an asshole.

Death Threats In Portland Over Gay Marriage - Whackos with a cause, sad sad sad...

Homophobic Judge Roy Moore Pans Gay Marriage Ban - The Hypocrite Speaks!! Er, Spews!!

Correction!

The letter that was written to President Shrub that I reposted here on my own journal was in fact NOT written by the Divine Miss M, but was written by my friend Steph. She contacted me after finding it posted on my journal, and explained. To this day, she doesn't have any idea how it got attributed to Bette Midler, but there you have it. Anywhore, Steph rocks balls and I happen to think that if more people had her talent and backbone, then we'd all be better off as a society. Steph, you're my hero. Much love and many hugs to you, my sweetie!

Had dinner with Jennie earlier tonight, which was fun. The best part was when I was explaining how I had thought about her a couple of days ago, someone mentioned sitting shiva in a movie and I had to explain what that was to both her and Damien - I'm like "This is interesting, I'm explaining to a Jew what sitting shiva is!" She quickly corrected me by explaining "Yeah, but I'm not an observant Jew!" Once I explained it, she remembered and we all sort of giggled. Afterward, Damien & I went back to his apartment and watched Torch Song Trilogy, which is one of my top 10 favorite movies of all time. If you haven't seen it, shame on you.

Everybody dig the new icon? I made it in honor of the fact that next month is our two year anniversary. We're celebrating in Savannah and Tybee Island. Yup. We're also going to Jacksonville to my dear friend/sister/old Atlanta roomate Monique's wedding, where I'll get to see many loved ones I've not seen in several years - some of whom I've never even met. I'm excited. I'm going to bring lots of pictures and am going to take even more.

So anyway, I'm working on some 100 X 100 mini movies, but they're being bitches - the lot of them. If I could figure out how to better get the individual frames, then I'd have a better chance of something looking fairly decent. As it is I have made two of Jeff Buckley but they're not very well done. One is where he's singing Hallelujah during the recording of the Grace album, the other is from the So Real video. I'll get it down pat sooner or later.

With that, I'm off - sweet dreams...
