Music Video Roundup: Tamar Braxton “All the Way Home”
Y’all are sleeping on Tamar Braxton. The longer I sit with her album, the more I appreciate the fact that she was sangin’ on every track. I’m so glad she released this as a single, because it’s one of my favorite tracks from Love & War.
The video after the cut, plus some other videos you need to get into by T-ara, Chvrches, Barenaked Ladies, Brielle, and The Swellers.

Rio is trying to hide its (legal) prostitutes and putting everyone in danger.
Exchanging sex for money is legal in Rio de Janeiro, but it is illegal for a third party to profit from the trade, so brothels are against the law. In an effort to clean up the city’s image ahead of the World Cup in 2014 and the Olympics in 2016, police have been raiding the city’s brothels to hide the sex industry.
All they’ve done is bring prostitution (and the sex workers themselves) out into the open and put them in danger.

Look at this photo.
Things I need:
- This skateboard under my feet.
- These clothes in my closet.
- That man on my face.

Dairy Queen signed a lease in Manhattan!
I had actually given up hope, because Dairy Queen said earlier this year that they were going to open a location by Memorial Day. Well. Memorial Day came. Have I had my Oreo Blizzard? No I have not. So you are a liar Dairy Queen, and I do not trust you anymore…
…until today, because they’ve signed a lease on 14th Street and all is right with the world (and the continued clone-ification of Manhattan with chain after chain running Mom & Pop’s out of business, but we’re not on that right now, because I want my Blizzard).

Forcing employers to provide birth control is “like making a Jewish deli sell pork.”
Oh Rick Warren.
I like how he can just open his mouth, let anything fall out, and it makes its way around the Conservative side of the internet in about three hours. He is so not ever on the mark, and here he goes again, equating two things that don’t go together at all.

Tom Daley & Dustin Lance Black are so strange to me.
What do these two even have in common? They look cute together. But I can’t imagine what they talk about all day.
(Unless there’s not much talking going on…haaaaayyy)

Rambling Wednesdays: Internet Narcissism.
God bless the internet. Seriously. For as many people on social networking sites who annoy the hell out of me with their twice-hourly updates about what kind of rice they just ate, there are just as many folk who entertain me and bring joy into my life.
But this is not about them. This is about me. And my internet narcissism. And how it’s helping me become a better me.

Dick Cheney is surprised by the Facebook attacks against Liz.
For reference, Liz (left) is the politician, cut from Daddy’s Cloth, running for Senate on a campaign made of hyperbole and Conservative rhetoric. Mary (right) is the lesbian, and her wife, Heather Poe, attacked Liz Cheney on Facebook a couple of weeks ago. It is brutal. I almost don’t want to post it because it’s so out of order and uncalled for. Such an unprovoked attack is, quite frankly, a little embarrassing for all of us on the side of equality.
