Ziva David

"She's a strong powerful woman, in a world dominated by men, that is not anger, that is determination"

     - Ziva David

Microsoft's problem?

Wolowitz: Did you ever tell your sister about the time Sheldon got punched by Bill Gates? 

Raj: Gates gave a speech at the university. Sheldon went up to him afterward and said 'Maybe if you weren't so distracted by sick children in Africa, you could have put a little more thought into Windows Vista!'
Bam! Right in the nose!

Wolowitz: Beyonce? Seriously dude?

Raj: What? She's curvy and she owns it!

Norwegian Recycling

I have always thought that DJs were these crazy people standing behind some kind of weird machine waving their hand at the overexcited drunk crowd dancing... But I was wrong! (And that doesn't happen often)

Peter Bull is a DJ that does mash-ups like you have never seen before!
His album Donkey Business is just genius! He mashed famous songs up with songs from the game Diddy Kong... And gosh I spent so many summers on my Nintendo 64 playing that game!
The songs brought back so many memories... Akh...

Anyway, the album was nothing compared to the other songs he released!

My favorites:

- Hey Oh Tonight

(Can't find a link, sorry)

1. Mindi Abair - Save Tonight
2. Red Hot Chili Peppers - Snow (Hey Oh)
3. Damien Rice - Cannonball

I'm a Red Hot Chili Pepper superfan and anything that's related to this band just turns me on! Snow is also one of my favorite songs! I have never listened to the other songs and I don't care about them.

- 8 Become 1

1. Black Eyed Peas - Where Is The Love
2. Savage Garden - Crash And Burn
3. Maroon 5 - She Will Be Loved
4. James Blunt - You're Beautiful
5. Atomic Kitten - It's Ok!
6. U2 - With Or Without You
7. Billie The Vision & The Dancers - Summercat
8. Remy Zero - Fair

I love old Black Eyes Peas. I remember putting this song on repeat all the times... Maroon 5 is also pure genius. Is Adam Levine the sexiest man ever? Songs About Jane is the only album I ever bought... ever. (Go free music) And U2 is of course one of the best bands of all times. I love Bono!

- How Six Songs Collide

1. Jason Mraz - I'm Yours
2. Howie Day - Collide
3. Five For Fighting - Superman
4. Angela Ammons - Always Getting Over You
5. Boyzone - All That I Need
6. 3 Doors Down - Here Without You

Jason Mraz and 3 Doors Down are just awesome! Collide is also a great song.

Gaydrobe Item #3: The Color

A little history lesson.

During World War II, Nazi concentration camps inmates used to wear all kind of badges used to identify their felony.
Homosexuality was illegal, of course, and gay men were considered as sexual offenders.
Their marking? A downward pink triangle.

But pink is also associated with women, and we all are familiar with the stereotypes.
Hot pink is also the color of sexuality.

Moreover, a man wearing a pink shirt or polo is super sexy and we all know sexiness is associated with gay men (Duh?).
If you've got a nice tan, don't hesitate to wear the pinkest gayest shirt you find in your wardrobe!

It is true that a man is not seen as gay if he wears a pink shirt these days, but it was interesting to find out all about the pink triangle.
I love the fact that it became a symbol of gay pride and gay right movement even if it was intended to undermine out community.
Does it show that what doesn't kill us only makes us stronger?

The Other Way Around

I came out to so many people but nobody ever came out to me.
I never knew how it really felt, but tonight, after a wild wild party, my best friend came out to me. She is dating another girl.
First reaction? I was really happy for her.
Five minutes later? I started crying. I don't know why. Was it the alcohol or the confession? I will never know.

But this sadness just came and filled every part of my body. And with this sadness came disappointment.
I was disappointed I haven't been the friend she has been for me.
When I came out to her she showed nothing but support, and now when it's her turn, I start tearing up in front of her?

I can't really explain this. Her girlfriend is really cool and nice.
Am I greedy and don't want to share my best friend? Of course not! A lot of my friends are in relationships.
Do I think that I will never see her the same way again? Of course not! Nothing is ever gonna change between us, like nothing changed when I came out to her.

I just don't want her to get hurt. Sixteen-year olds are idiots.
I witness that teenager stubbornness everyday. How influenced kids can get.
I don't want her to realize how mean and cruel our society is. But doesn't she know that? She was the one hanging IDAHO posters with me. She was the one to stand up for me every time she heard a hateful comment.
I don't want her to wake up one day and realize she is straight as an arrow and regret every second of this. But isn't this the part of life during which you're supposed to explore your sexuality and experience new stuff?

I'm not her dad after all. I can't hold her all her life so she doesn't fall.
I have to be a friend and walk with her and help her get up when she falls.
And that's what I will try to be.

La nuit porte conseil.
