Matthew and I were graciously invited by a friend of ours to speak at an LGBT rally against DOMA and Proposition 8 at Montclair State University in Montclair, NJ, a couple of weeks ago. The timing was perfect, since on the day we spoke (27-Mar-2013), the Supreme Court of the US (SCOTUS) was hearing arguments for an against DOMA that day and had heard arguments for and against California's Prop 8 the day before.

The speeches we wrote were not completely the speeches that came out, but the essences are here.  I spoke first and Matthew spoke second. What an exhilarating experience!  Three of our friends were there in real time and others have seen the initial video taken by one of those friends.  These videos below were done more professionally by a student at the university.  Enjoy, comment, and please forward these speeches to others who will benefit from them.  We are interested in becoming more and more active in these fights and would like many more opportunities to speak out against discrimination.

My original speech (behind the cut)... )

The must-see recording of Rihanna's SNL performance last week.  I can't get the song or the tight, intricate, SICK choreography out of my head, either!

No matter what Tokyo or Seoul say, this is NOT the Barbra Streisand song:
We were grocery shopping the other day at H Mart (one of our favorite - Korean - stores - and happily there are 4 within a 4-mile radius of our house). They always play their J-POP party dance America fun music NOW-turu and very loud-turu.

Compare that rendition to the "original". Seems like the Ooo-oooo-ooo-oooo Duck Sauce folks in the background have sold their little ditty around the world-turu.

Matthew watches this fabulous Korean religiously.  I can hear the videos when he's watching her - her voice is kind of high and she reminds me of shopping at one of our local H Marts.  Her name is Maanchi. She has both a website (with a store, of course) and a YouTube channel.  Sometimes when she cooks and explains what she's cooking (or has cooked), she wears a fascinator.

(I secretly wish sometimes that they made fascinators for men, but I don't think they'd catch on here.)

All kinds of awesome! I LOVE the song!!  She is ghetto fabulicious!

Bon Qui Qui "I'M A CUT YOU" - Anjelah Johnson

No one is coming out and saying this plainly: Republicans and evangelical Christians cross-promote each other. If you're Republican, you're a Christian. If you're a Christian, you're a Republican.  There are large groups of evangelical Christian Republicans who also believe that Catholics are on the wrong path and are going to hell because they pray to saints and have priests as intermediaries between them and God (if you think I'm mistaken, I have pictures to prove it).

Evangelicals and most of the Christian community, and, therefore, by default, the Republican party believe that Mormons do not uphold Christian values, do not believe in the Jesus they do, and are all part of a cult.  That's why the Christian community, by and large, has a huge problem with Mitt Romney as a potential candidate for president.

I used to like Franklin Graham and was knowledgeable of his back story - that he had departed from his father's "straight and narrow" and then "returned as the Prodigal Son" to follow - somewhat - in his father's footsteps.  He runs Samaritan's Purse, a Christian charity. By definition, a Christian charity should mean, a loving organization that espouses and represent Christ's love and acceptance. Listen to what Franklin says about Obama and how he differentiates between Obama's faith (abstaining from an opinion), Santorum's and Gingrich's morals (!!!), and then his perspective on Mormons (as I mentioned before).

Franklin Graham has now established himself to be a two-faced bigot in my book. What's good for the goose in his book is not good for the gander.  Obama said he's a Christian. Santorum and Gingrich have said they are Christians. However, Franklin Graham will not support Obama's claims to be true.  Why the double standard?

Franklin Graham is too pious a Pharisee.  

Religious beliefs and theology have no place in politics.  That's why our Founding Fathers (many of whom were athiests or deists, and NOT Christians) established the distinct separation of Church and State.

May you always walk in sunshine
Slumber warm when night winds blow
May you always live with laughter
For a smile becomes you so

May good fortune find your doorway
May the bluebird sing your song
May no trouble travel your way
May no worry stay too long

May your heartaches be forgotten
May no tears be spilled
May old acquaintance be remembered
And your cup of kindness filled

And may always be a dreamer
May your wildest dream come true
May you find someone to love
As much as I love you

And may always be a dreamer
May your wildest dream come true
May you find someone to love
As much as I love you

I love Pam

Pam from True Blood, is a real person with real feelings and real experiences. If she's acting here, I love her even more, but I think she's speaking from her heart. Granted, EVERYONE and their mother is putting together these videos, but this one spoke to me; all the other from the True Blood cast were last-luster and forced. Meh.

Watch and be moved.

This video proves that we had a good time at Bear Week in Provincetown this year. First, we re-discovered Broadway Tuesday at the Wave Bar (Matt, of all people, reminded me about it!). I screamed and yelled and hooted and hollered for about 2 hours. Sang songs at the top of my lungs and bawled my eyes out into Matt's chest at Susan Boyle's first performance on Britain's Got Talent of "I Had Dream".

The next night, I had the ENTIRE WAVE BAR (= 200+ men) singing "Happy Birthday" to Matt, but ultimately had to bite the bullet and sing a song: "I Will Survive" by Gloria Gaynor. My premiere of that song was in New Orleans ([livejournal.com profile] cajuncountry and [livejournal.com profile] jefferzephyr weren't around for that performance) at Lafitte's. Alas, the Ptown performance should have ended more abruptly, but the drag queen made me finished the frigging song - my voice gave out in the middle and I had to finish it sounding like Harvey Fierstein doing a scene from a Jewish Gray Gardens. The next day, I had to whisper almost everything. AND IT WAS SOOOO FRUSTRATING!!

More later, but thought you'd all enjoy this.

This song is getting my butt moving today:

So, for the last two nights, Matt's been trying out Jacques Pepin's way of de-boning a chicken. In this video, I do love how Jacques says, "Lollipop!" and "Wiggle". Watch the video then look at Matt's chicken. My husband's amazing!!

Matt's de-boned & stuffed (with pancetta & bread crumbs) chicken before baking:

Ain't he cute? Boy, was that chicken tasty!! I love when Matt cooks. He's fantastic; my big belly's a tell.

So, on the trip to California, when Matt and I met up with [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com], [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com], and [Bad username or site: @ livejournal.com], we went to sing Karaoke at "Elvis!?" - a place in Fountain Valley, CA. It was really fun, and as I mentioned on a previous post, I wanted to post some videos.

I didn't hear any screams coming from the California corner of LJ or FB, so here are three of them:

Tim singing "What A Wonderful World"

Robert & Steve singing "Queen of Hearts"

Steve singing "Won't You Be My Neighbor?"

This has got to be one of the funniest things I've seen in a long time. Maybe I'm tired or REALLY DESPERATELY needed a laugh, but I laughed so hard at this.

This is a video by Jenny Slate from SNL, who won't be returning for this next season. :-(

Jenny Slate was the one who in her first-ever appearance on SNL who dropped the "F-Bomb" on national TV (on the East Coast). She was GREAT.

Here's her with the car horns from SNL:

A kitty cat strolled into our motel room in Huntington Beach along the Pacific Coast Highway. We're home now and I'm working through our photos to post them up (1/3 done!). Enjoy this snippet of things we experienced whilst on the Left Coast.

wwcitizen: (Thumbs Up)
This is sooooo sweet! Awesome!

These are GREAT! I found these from a friend in Australia with whom I worked in Germany. I owned a Trabant for about 6 months in Leipzig before I moved to Austria. That was the first car I worked on and fixed!! I replaced the starter.

I love how the "scientists" run to the car:

Good music to this one (and no German):

Trabi (Trabant) Safari through Berlin!!!

This is a Wartburg - cool car and heavier than the Trabant:

I posted this directly on FB earlier and I want to see how quickly this post comes across. What do YOU think and how do you read this?

We were watching Jon Stewart's interview with Betty White, who we love to watch. I helped (with millions of other FB folks) get her on SNL as the host (I don't know if I really believe that FB or viral social pressure actually did the trick, but that's another story). But toward the end of the interview, Jon asked her, "Now, is there anything you won't do in the show?" I think he was pointing toward nudity, sex scenes, maybe profanity, etc.

We love Betty White, but she seems to contradict herself between the interview and the scene that's shown in a commercial - directly after her statement: "I don't think drugs are funny and I won't do jokes about drugs..." watch & listen - YOU decide.

(And, yes, I made this video montage this evening from camera recording to my desktop, through editing and splicing, then production, upload, and annotation. Very exciting, indeed!)

These little guys are soooo cute. I wantz hug bear cubz!!
