End the Hate-Life is Meant to be Enjoyed

Not many of you live anywhere around here, or know who this young author is. However, she attends my school and wrote an opinion piece last week in our schools Newspaper, The Comment. I am writing about this today because being held on campus is a rally to support the young author and to show those who committed the hate crime that we will not back down, that we will not be scared off and that most people today support gay rights. I'm not saying everyone does, but the day Thursday I recieved an invitation to rally being held in her honor, and to support gay rights, being held on campus because the author was attacked due to her article entitled "Prop 8 Generates Hate".

According to the Huffington Post article, and many other news sources such as NECN, ABC and the Boston Globe just to name a few who have heard of this incident, the young author was approached Thursday night under the train bridge by a man and a woman and the exchange started out pleasant enough. The author was asked if she was a writer for the comment, and if she had written that piece. When the author answered yes, the female attacked her she says. The author went on to where she was going with a black eye, to a meeting for The Comment, and she told the students and faculty advisor there what had happened.

I am writing this article today instead of celeb gossip because these issues are really important to me, as I am an ally and support gay rights. Gay people are no different than anyone of us, they just want the same things we do. And for those of you saying its unconstitutional, nowhere does the Constitution mention what is allowed in marriage, it says its state determined, but if its not mentioned, and unconstitutional is againts the constitution how can it be against something that doesnt mention it?

Update: The rally went very well. More than 400 people showed, some professors and alumni amongst the students. Unfortunately, I only was able to hear the Reverand of the Universalist Unitarian Church on campus speak before I had to leave for class but it was amazing to see that show of support. And many media outlets were there aside from NECN local news, and the student paper along with student broadcast station.

Break Ups and Make Ups

According to researchers of analytical data on the Facebook team, there is a list of songs that is preferred when people either break up, or start to date. This makes sense, though some of the songs did surprise me. For your benefit, I will post the list too, with a link to the song if anyone is unfamilar with the title. The title of this post links readers to The Huffington Post article.

Listened to msot when entering a relationship are Jason DeRulo's "Don't Want to Go Home" as number 1.
2: Beyonce's "Love On Top"
3: Lil Wayne's "How To Love"
4: Bruno Mars' "Just the Way You Are
5: Flo Rida's "Good Feeling"
6: Mr. DeRulo gets a spot on the list again with his "It Girl"
7: Gym Class Heroes ft Adam Lavine with "Stereo Hearts"
8: A surprising appearance of Britney's "Criminal"
9: Wiz Khalifa's "No Sleep"
10: John Mayer's "Free Fallin"
I have to say that since Britney's "Criminal" hit the chart, I'm surprised Taylor Swift's "Ours" didn't.

Now for the downfall as many relationships end, the list according to Facebook about the songs most listened to when going through a break up. The number one song to listen to is Mumford and Sons' "The Cave".
2: Drake feat. The Weekend's "Crew Love"
3: Kayne West's "All of the Lights"
4: Adele's "Rolling in the Deep"
5: Drake feat Rihanna's "Take Care"
6: Bruno Mars' "It Will Rain"
7: Rihanna's "We Found Love"
8: Foster the People's "Call It What You Want"
9: Selena Gomez's "Love You Like A Song"
10: David Guetta feat. Usher's "Without You".

Speaking of breakups, alternative pop musician Katy Perry is copying friend and country starlet Taylor Swift's idea and what made Taylor famous. She is getting back at ex-hubby funny man and muscian Russell Brand in her new song according to Huffington Post.  Russell filed for divorce in December though the documet does not state a date of seperation. Apparently the very seemingly happy couple spent Christmas apart and neither was sporting their bling according to TMZ. In interviews Katy has been pretty stable about the whole thing but at the Grammy's in the debut of her new song "Part of Me" it is very clear that she is very hurt, and by Russell.

Hey all! I am so sorry to my loyal followers for wicked dropping off the radar, but I moved in September to a place without internet but now due to my boyfriend's brother going into surgery we moved into his parents basement (with internet) and I shall come back full force! Not just because of that though, also because while I was in Rhode Island I started attending The First Spiritualist Church of Rhode Island in East Providence, and I was told that somehow I would end up doing something creative and be successful at it, and it is something that I kinda gave up on, and to me, that seems to be this because I enjoyed this but gave up on it with other stuff happening in my life, so now I am back!

I have been catching up/watching Teen Mom 2 which features Jenelle, Chelsea, Leah and Kailyn of the second season of "16 and Pregnant" and I believe the fourth season is coming out relatively soon. I watch it on the computer a few days afterwards though, so look out for posts in the following days after Tuesday. The finale is scheduled for this week.

I shall two different pieces today, one will be a quick tribute to the recently deceased Whitney Houston, who was only 48 and lived a rather hard life. ooThe other piece, because Valentines Day is tomorrow, 2012's most datable stars.

According to the article linked in the title found on OMG Yahoo, Whitney died in her hotel room at 48 with no signs of criminal intent. Originally Ms. Houston was known for her amazing majestic voice on the hit single "I Will Always Love You", but younger generations know her from her erratic behaviour and odd marriage to Bobby Brown which was seen on Being Bobby Brown. Whats interesting, however, is that just the day before she went to the Grammy's rehearsals and was thinking of making an appearance as it is her favorite time of the year according to her rep in the article. The cause is stilly unknown. RIP Whitney Houston, us 80s lovers will always miss you!

Next, to end with a more cheery topic, 2012's most kissable stars (at least the Top 5)! This information was found on ExtraTV's website.

#5: Megan Fox. She became very well known in a much prettier version of what we see now in my opinion with the Terminator movie starring alongside Shia LeBouf of "Even Stevens" fame. She can spotted in other hit pop-type movies. She also now sports quite a few tats. The pic below is the older her, some work around the mouth maybe though.

#4: Brad Pitt. He's been on the list since, like, forever so everyone knows his name. He was with Jennifer Aniston for a really long time, but unknown why they split. Personally, I don't get it, especially not with this look:

#3: Scarlett Johansson. I think she can be pretty, but sometimes her look is just a tad off for my tastes. She became famous for her role in Home Alone 3, but she became talked about due to her somewhat racy role in The Other Boelyn Girl. Here she is pretty:

#2: Johnny Depp. This I agree with. Even with scissors for hands, there is something about his face that is just..well..kissable. He has been in a wide range of films, even animations such as Corpse Bride, or musicals like Sweeny Tide. Many people now know and recognize him as Captain Jack Sparrow from the Pirates of Caribbean movies.

And, finally the ever anticipated #1: George Clooney. I say it depends on the movie.
