WILL YOUNG: LEAVE RIGHT NOW

I saw Will's video posted over at Yummy of the Day. Will performed this song live on the American Idol finale and I immediately loved it (it usually takes many listenings before I love a song). Will was the first winner of Pop Idol, which spawned American Idol and Idols all over the world, and after came out after winning Pop Idol. This is his official video followed by his AI performance. Will's new album, Leave Right Now, dropped on May 25th.

OZZY MAKES HIS FAN SCREAM!

This vid is so worth a minute of your time. With all the crappy news and events, this minute of fun is sure to make you smile. I think more stars should do this - I know I would.

Ozzy Osbourne visited Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum in New York. While there he spent some time sitting on a bench and not moving. People thought he was the wax version of himself. When people came close he would jump up and scare them.

The Argyle Sweater by Scott Hilburn


Lots of comics this week. Just how many years ago was The Ambiguously Gay Duo? Here is a 30 minute collection of what must be all of their skits. Still funny after all these years.

**BREAKING NEWS** DADT OVER?! CAN IT BE TRUE?

President Obama has signed on to a "don't ask, don't tell" compromise between lawmakers and the Defense Department, the White House announced Monday, an agreement that removes a key obstacle to repealing the military's policy banning gays and lesbians from serving openly in the armed forces.

Obama extends hospital visitation rights to same-sex couples
Under the compromise, worked out in a series of meetings Monday at the White House and on Capitol Hill, lawmakers will proceed to repeal the Clinton-era policy in the next several days, but that action will not go into effect until the Pentagon completes a study about implementing the repeal.

In a letter to lawmakers pushing for a repeal, the White House wrote Monday that "such an approach recognizes the critical need to allow our military and their families the full opportunity to inform and shape the implementation process through a thorough understanding of their concerns, insights and suggestions."

Gay rights advocates hailed the White House decision as a "dramatic breakthrough" that they predicted would dismantle the policy once and for all.

MUG SHOT MONDAY














For some reason and without warning, one of my favorite blogs closed shop -- AGAIN -- hip n edgy and before that famous like me. If you know why or where Donnie has gone, I'd appreciate knowing. Until then, I have decided to do my own version of one of my favorite weekly posts of his -- MUG SHOT MONDAY. My version will be somewhat different and will hopefully improve.

TODAY: Call Swarm Congress On DADT

Servicemembers United is asking everybody to call their members of Congress today in a "last chance" effort on DADT.
Another chance for you to be a part of history is coming on Monday, May 24, 2010 with Servicemembers United's "GIVE 'EM HELL - Congressional Call Swarm" campaign. Next week, the Senate Armed Services Committee and the full House of Representatives will debate and vote on finally repealing the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" (DADT) law. This is our LAST CHANCE to flood congressional offices with phone calls to send the message that support for repealing DADT is overwhelming.
We are no longer asking. We are DEMANDING that DADT be repealed THIS YEAR. We all have worked long and hard for this time to come. Now that it's here, we cannot let the opportunity slip. Please join us on Monday, May 24th and help us flood our congressional offices with phone calls demanding repeal of DADT immediately.
Step 1) Call the DC offices of each of your state's two Senators
Step 2) Call the DC office of your district's federal Representative
And finally, to all those still serving on active duty under the cloud of DADT, KEEP FIGHTING FOR US AND WE'LL KEEP FIGHTING FOR YOU.
