Harry Potter, The Final Mashup!

I was listening to Norwegian Recycling's new songs and this creepy songs starts... and I'm like, I know this voice, what's that...
WAIT WHAT?

Harry Potter?

Mashing the Year Up

Every New Year party needs a little DJ Earworm. Every year, this little guy mashed the 25 biggest hits into the United State of Pop of the year!

This is what he came up with for this year: United State of Pop 2011 - World Goes Boom. 

This is far from being one of my favorites.
2008's Viva La Pop was legendary but the best so far was of course 2009's Blame It on the Pop!


So what do you think?

The guy is good but my favorite mashup DJ is and will always be Norwegian Recycling. Yes, him, again!
Everything that's related to Coldplay just turns me on, what can I do?

Enjoy and have a wonderful, unforgettable New Year Eve :)

Blame it on the Gay.

LGBT people have been fighting for equality since forever, but all I can see are gay men and women acting like their life is totally different from others.
Equality means no discrimination, but it also means no special privileges for anyone.
So what are we asking for exactly?

You might get bullied because you're gay, you might feel like an outcast sometimes, it changes you. It does. It is hard to deal with.
But isn't everyone different? Doesn't each and every one of us have problems and issues he has to deal with?

So why are we blaming every single thing that is wrong in our life on the gay?

You can't make new friends because you are annoying and self-centered not because you are gay.
You failed that exam because you didn't even try to study not because you are gay.
You didn't get that job because you weren't good enough not because you are gay.

Not every person you are going to meet is gonna turn out to be homophobic and look down to you cause you're just this gay guy.
They are going to see you, first of all, as a person.

As extravagant as you can get, you are, first of all, a person, you are a man.
As butch as you can get, you are, first of all, a person, you are a woman.
The gay doesn't and shouldn't ever come first.

So next time you ask for equality, try to look the word up in a dictionary.

To All the Atheists Out There!

Merry Newtonmas 
&
Reasons Greetings!

Isaac Newton (25 December 1642 – 20 March 1727)

New Year Resolutions.

This is the time of the year when the world falls into a collective depression. Reality hits us.
We all remember our last New Year resolution and how we failed to accomplish them.
But we also look up to this coming year thinking that maybe it will bring the strength and courage to challenge ourselves again.

So, think my friend, think. What can 2012 be all about?
I've been pretty found of my resolutions so far. 2009 was all about never using violence again, 2010 was the year I convinced myself to come out and 2011 was all about being more classy. And I did.
I came out in 2010 and burned my wardrobe and built it again from its ashed in 2011 and all that while leading a nonviolent life. (Yes, Ghandi is very proud.) 

And now 2012 shall be the year of success and optimism.

Optimism, you say?

Parents often teach us to be realistic, but that often turns into pessimism.

"Expect the worse if you don't want to be disappointed."
That philosophy is so wrong.
This year, I am expecting the best, and I will do everything I can to get it.

Now success in our modern times is always associated with academic success, and that is also what I mainly mean: Building a good resume to go study abroad.
I already got a great SAT score which I am very proud of.
My mom, who was convinced that no man is mature enough to leave his parents at 18, told me that I should apply wherever I want to. :')
I know 2012 hasn't started yet but I consider this one of the first success of this new year. Yay me!

So what are you people up to this year? Share the joy!

Merry Christmas!

Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas :)

Enjoy your holidays and don't forget to make someone smile!
I hope this video brightens your day.

Breaking Gender Stereotypes.

Sweden is fascinating me. It just seems like this perfect country where everyone is happy. (Let's just omit the suicide part, shall we?)

So I was watching the news and they talked about this preschool that is all about making sure children don't fall into any gender stereotype.
Sweden is making everything to bring equality between the sexes, promoting women rights and allowing gay and lesbian couple to legalize their partnership and adopt children.

That initiative is totally new, the first preschool opened a year ago, but everything is carefully calculated. From emotion dolls who have no apparent sex, to kitchen that looks like a construction site.
Staff can't even use pronoun like "him" or "her". They use a kind of Swedish "it", "hen", which can refer to both a man or a woman.

That is how it is done. Total freedom to become whoever you want to be. :)

''Society expects girls to be girlie, nice and pretty and boys to be manly, rough and outgoing,'' says Jenny Johnsson, a 31-year-old teacher. ''Egalia gives them a fantastic opportunity to be whoever they want.''
