Young and Gay in Putin's Russia: Documentary

So, I stumbled upon a documentary covering the effects of life for young LGBT people in Russia under the current climate.   http://www.gay.net/video/2014/01/15/watch-vices-heartbreaking-documentary-young-and-gay-putins-russia   (DISCLAIMER [taken from the site]: Viewers be advised. This documentary can be incredibly difficult to watch, and some of the footage is extremely graphic and disturbing. Parts of the documentary may be too intense for some viewers.)   I'd like to say I'm shocked at

Decision Day! ...Or Not.

So, remember that Michigan case that I posted a blog for back in March?   Judge Milton Friedman, who presided over the case, is set to issue his ruling tomorrow.   The hope is that he'll strike Michigan's gay marriage ban down as unconstitutional. Seven of Michigan's 83 counties are so hopeful, in fact, that they're prepared to begin issuing same-sex marriage licenses immediately should the ban be so stricken.       EDIT: Judge Friedman stated: "I'm in the middle. I have to decide this a

Laptop Fail.

(NOTE: This is basically a longer version of my status from yesterday.)   So...yesterday, the motherboard on the laptop that I've had for nearly 3 years decided that then was the perfect time to quit functioning. What's weird about that is, it was working for about an hour that morning, before I put it into "sleep" mode for a little while. 3 hours later...it starts acting like it wants to turn on, but it won't. Nothing that I'm able to do makes any difference.   I take it over to a friend of

Pick My...Um...Pic!

For those of y'all who haven't yet noticed, amidst the consolidation of staff groups happening onsite, I have moved over to the Writer Support Team.   This, however, means that my omni-present Libra scales pic no longer matches my color...again.   Now, I'm not anticipating yet another color change any time soon, but in anticipation of that possibility, and the fact that I've had the scales pic for a while...I've grown bored with it. That said, as far as what I want to replace it with...wel

Things That Make You Go...

New Year's Resolutions: To Blab or Not To Blab?

Maybe it's just me...but it seems like New Year's Resolutions are a lot like wishes. They're alike in the sense that whenever you go telling everyone about the New Year's resolution that you've set for yourself for the coming year...that's it, your resolution is now doomed to fail!   What do you think - am I blowing smoke on this one, or is there perhaps some truth to it?   Discuss.   Mike (Who is NOT revealing his New Year's Resolution for 2013 to anyone - just in case. )

U.S. Supreme Court to hear Prop 8 review, DOMA challenge cases

(Apologies for being impatient, but I wanted to get this going. If this gets taken down, then...whatever, I guess. )   So, with the Soapbox set to close, and Myr's pronouncement that news items should go in blogs:     I'm essentially picking up the discussion where it was left off yesterday, and doing it here. I had originally posted the article, followed by a link to its source (from Yahoo), but at that time the article was brief. It's since been updated to be much longer, so I'm not goin

It's That Time...For the Season...To Be Ending...

So I found out today that my last day at the park for the season will probably be sometime around the last weekend of our three-week Fall Harvest fest. That is the weekend of October 12-13-14. As it turns out, I'm going to be on the other side of the state that exact weekend, so my last day might end up being the 11th. I'll find out when the schedule gets updated next week. (I get paid bi-weekly, and today was the last day of the current pay period, so the schedule for the period following this

So, It's Been One Year You Say...

Huh. It's been one year now since I registered here on GA. Like so many of us, I too lurked around for a little while before decided to register for the forums on here. Also like so many of us, I too was drawn here by finding Q's Second Shot posted elsewhere, getting impatient, and coming over here to read the rest. (I've seen quite a few people mention this in chat, in case anyone doesn't believe me. )   It feels...I dunno...odd, that it's been one year exactly as of today. In one way, I can'
