I debated whether to link (2), with the language, the issue debate… Btw besides being for fairly interesting stuff, the Friday posts were meant for The Rockstars to someday see what had been “trending” during our time… Well it’s a topic of hot discussion in some parts of the world today (not to mention I have openly gay friends and ex-colleagues and used to love the darling baby outfits this guy put together for me in one of the Jacadi stores), so……
2) Gay Men Threaten To Marry Your Girlfriends If You Don’t Let Them Marry Each Other – “We’re the shoulder your girlfriend cries on when she’s complaining about – ahem – you.” Wildly popular video by humor site CollegeHumor. Watch out, straight men – better cooks, better dressers – sorry to break it to you but it’s – ahem – true.
(Not that I advocate everything in the video – I’m for tolerance, not promiscuity…).
On an aside, I do get (polite, respectful) emails asking for eg when I occasionally used “he” in reference to Ms Rockstar’s future partner – whether I was expressing a preference. Yes people do really pick these up and ask sincerely, curiously. Which warrants a (similarly polite and respectful :)) reply. Kings’ “Gay-dar” however will always be better than mine because one of his housemates out of college was gay.
Anyway, at bottom of link above is also a photo gallery of Political Bloopers – President Obama quipping “That’s alright, you all know who I am,” when the presidential seal falls off the podium, Vice President Joe Biden apparently falling asleep during one the President’s speeches, and George Bush’s 2005 visit to Beijing:
Where, after wrestling for a few moments with locked doors when he went the wrong way exiting the stage, he quipped, “I was trying to escape. Obviously it didn’t work.”
But what I really wanted to put here was this quote from the author of Why Romney Lost: “The key message I hope readers will understand: conservatism must modernize. Modernization is not an abandonment of the conservative message; modernization is the only way conservatism can survive.”
4) Dogs who like architecture, here’s a site for you.
(But I beg the question anyway - What for?)
5) I especially like this one though – 20 classroom portraits from around the world. (Haha and there’s even an ad for IXL, the program Rockstar does his school math practice on, on the page…)
Possible title: “Where Children Learn.” After the thought-provoking, eye-opening Where Children Sleep.
This one’s cute – girls wear red, boys wear blue, and they’re BYOD (bring your own dog).
6) Another arty farty class-project-y one: 16 year old does fruit-themed self-portraits.
I dare someone to go write in and ask Y U No Post Durian One?
And with that………………………
Have. A Good. Weekend!
