Random Thoughts....

I'm in a random kind of mood (if that makes sense:), so here's some random thoughts. Feel free to respond with your own or comment on mine:

1. Finishing school and working (I finally got a job) is sucking up all my time (hence the lack of frequent posting:). But bills never take a holiday.

2. Is it just me or is Trey Songz knowingly giving winks to his gay fans with his photoshoots/videos? I mean he always has that smirk on his face, pouting his full lips, like he's saying "Yeah boi, I know you fantasizing about me right now? Then he proceeds to flex those arms and back muscles.... whoops, let me snap back to reality lol.

3. Ms. Janet was FIERCE with a capital F at the AMA's. I hope Rihanna was in the audience in taking notes like she needed extra credit to pass a class! Janet's performance reminded me of why I loved her in the first place.

4. Speaking of the AMA's Lady Gaga brought the heat as usual. But I'm a little worried with the tour, the re-release of The Fame, and the "Bad Romance" video, she may burn out artistically, which would suck massively. But knowing Ms. Gaga she'll pull out something spectacular.

5. Why have all of R. Kelly's songs for the past five years (give or take) been about the club? I'm serious, it always about flirting, drinking, scheming, plotting, and dancing in the club. Molestation charges aside, what happened to the R. Kelly that made "If I Could Turn Back The Hands Of Time, "I Wish" and "When A Woman's Fed Up"?

6. The third season of True Blood needs to start right now lol. Seriously I don't think I can wait until the summertime to see Lafayette, Jason, and my gurl Pam, especially after the way last season ended.

7. Isn't that whole Wal-Mart fiasco a hot mess?

8. How much do you wanna bet that Oprah will be back with new something(tv show, network, website, her own planet) after her show goes off the air (I still can't believe that's happening...I mean the show's literally been on as long as I've been alive). Mark my words, the big O will not go gently into that good night.

9. Cartoons are so watered down nowadays. Think about it: compare the stuff in the 80's and 90's (Rocko's Modern Life, Ren and Stimpy, PowerPuff Girls, Dexter's Lab) to the fluff on TV now. There's hardly any inside jokes for adults or other subversive humor.

10. I have to see Precious while it's still in theaters. Something tells me it'll be one of those life-changing films.

11. Wasn't Rihanna giving us Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct with the outfit she wore for her 20/20 interview? The new album might not be quite as good as Good Girl Gone Bad, but Ri-Ri can dress her ass off.

Transgender Day of Rememberance

Via Rod 2.0 below is a video listing all of the victims of anti-transgender violence. Unfortunately, violent attacks against trans people are on the rise. In the U.S. the victims are often black and latino, and sadly their murders often go unnoticed by the mainstream media. Personally what sickens me the most about anti-transgender prejudice is that a lot of it comes from the mouths of gays, lesbians and bisexual. As misunderstood, stereotyped and reviled as we are by straight homophobes and religious conservatives, we should be the last group of people to discriminate. Anyways, watch the clip below:

I Pledge Allegiance To The Gays....

I wonder what Donnie thinks of this. A 10-year old named Will Phillips says he won't say the pledge of allegiance until gays and lesbians get equal rights. Hmmm, when I was 10 I was obsessed with video games. Needless to say I think this is great, and takes a lot of courage, not to mention insight. How many 10-year old activists do you know? Watch the clip below:

O Donnie Boy...

If you follow or have followed gospel music for the past 10 or so years, you know all too well about Donnie McClurkin and his story. If not, here's the short version: Donnie was molested at age 8, lived "the gay lifestyle" for 20+ years, was eventually "delivered," and is now straight as a (celibate or "single") arrow. Now I don't want it to seem as though I'm making light of child molestation or abuse. It is awful and disgusting, and can no doubt leave lasting scars on its victims.

However, I am sick of Donnie and others like him using this as an excuse for why they were(are) gay. If anything being molested by someone of the same sex would probably turn you away from further sexual contact, not embracing it. And why is that women or girls who are raped or molested by older men do not cite this as the cause of their heterosexuality? Or young boys who are taken advantage of by older women for that matter? There are many people who've never been abused, were raised by loving parents and are still gay. Furthermore, what does walking or talking a certain way have to do with who you are as a man or woman? If all men suddenly became super butch and women are became ultra feminine there would still be gay folks. These people need gender and sexual orientation classes *smh*.

All of this ranting comes from an unhinged tirade Donnie gave at the COGIC Holy Convocation Youth Service. Listen to the three part foolishness below and see what I mean.

Why Did I Get Married Too? Trailer

The trailer for Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married Too? is out. It looks interesting, and of course I'll watch it to Janet's performance. Hopefully Michael Jai White will a couple of shirtless scenes as well lol:).
