A Louisiana judge refuses to marry an interracial couple since he doesn't believe in interracial marriage because of the effects such a marriage has on its children.  I have no words really..............I mean WTF?!? I'm stunned and I'm staring in disbelief. I'm getting more pissed by the second. Who does this judge think he is to tell people they cannot marry----to tell them that they cannot love who they love?!

From the article:

"I'm not a racist. I just don't believe in mixing the races that way," Bardwell told the Associated Press on Thursday. "I have piles and piles of black friends. They come to my home, I marry them, they use my bathroom. I treat them just like everyone else."

Bardwell said he asks everyone who calls about marriage if they are a mixed race couple. If they are, he does not marry them, he said.

Bardwell said he has discussed the topic with blacks and whites, along with witnessing some interracial marriages. He came to the conclusion that most of black society does not readily accept offspring of such relationships, and neither does white society, he said.

The NASA moon did succeed after all. Excellent. I'm looking forward to reading about the results.

The Tron Legacy trailer is up. I'm so excited. I can't wait for it to be released. Looking back, I think Tron may be responsible for my love of futuristic looking vehicles, especially motorcycles.

Oh, yeah, there's a femslash blogtalkradio show/podcast, called Femslash for Fans, hosted by Allaine. I liked his Harley/Ivy fics (needs a little work on his scene transitions but the fics are otherwise recced) so I thought why not give his show a try?  I've listened to most of the shows and I like it for the most part. He tends to speak quiet and his guests, fanfic authors, louder so I have to play with the volume a little but it's okay. You can download the podcasts.  I've found femslash fandoms that I'm interested in such as PepSi (Peppa/Silva, which is based on a Spanish soap opera show........I've watched some of the clips so far and it's much better than US portrayals so far of a lesbian relationship). It is a soap opera though so expect typical soap shenangians. Too bad I can't find a slash version/podcast, so far anyway.

Is it just me or is NCIS LA a redone, wannabe Fastlane? NCIS LA is  way less sexual than Fastlane.  I like the characters of LA  but the show reminds of a NCIS version of Fastlane, which I adored and was extremely pissed off when it was cancelled. I still miss Fastlane's slash sub(over)text. No, really. The main pairing was also an African American and white guy (in slash and on the show--police partners). They acted like they were a long-term married couple. Their boss, a woman, refused to discuss her sexual orientations, which fueled my femslash tendencies (she shared a kiss with a criminal she was tracking and it didn't seem to upset her). Wasn't the greatest show but I adored it anyway. I'm liking LA much more than I expected to. I think I even like it more than NCIS (hate Ziva, HATE her, she ruins the show!) even though I adore Abby, Ducky, and Gibbs.

Jeffrey Thomas has redone the Disney princesses in a goth, undead, zombie style. Aurora's a vampire?! Cinderella's a scarecrow? They're dark and the images are intriguing, well, to me anyway. Comics Alliance has resized a few of the pics that JT has done so that their easier to see but fit on your screen so that  you don't have to do as much clicking. JT's big pics are really big.  He's even got a Captain Jack Sparrow version.

...................I kinda want to write fanfic for them..........OMG........

Anti-war activist's works banned at Guantanamo's prison camp
From the article: Professor Noam Chomsky may be among America's most enduring anti-war activists. But the leftist intellectual's anthology of post 9/11 commentary is taboo at Guantánamo's prison camp library, which offers books and videos on Harry Potter, World Cup soccer and Islam...... DeWalt said "force protection reasons'' barred him from explaining why any title or author was banned but said as of this week there were no Chomsky works of any type at the Guantánamo library in any language.

Ooooooookay. Really. The comments say it all.

ROFLMAO. [livejournal.com profile] fleshflutter wrote the funniest fic that I think I've ever read. The incestuous courtship of the antichrist's bride.  Nose cola warning. Don't say I didn't warn ya. :-)   It's Sam/Dean and-and-and-------it's hilarious. Even if not a fan of Supernatural or the pairing, I think it's worth reading it's so funny. I don't think enjoying the fic is  really dependent on having knowledge of the show although I am a fan of the show so it's hard to tell. I do think it may be funnier if you are familiar with the show but it's still funny without that. Sam's trying to become the Antichrist in order to stop the Apocalypse and it trying to choose the path that will cause the least damage/death. Sam goes to visit Lucifer and accidentally gets engaged to Dean and thus is following the path of the Sacred Whore Consort, which involves him marrying Dean. Excerpts below:

The Brotherhood of the Stolen Eyes was the first church to spring up in Sam's name. It's since been followed by the Cult of the Shadow King and the Order of Lost Souls, the latter being a splinter group of the Brotherhood, created to accommodate the worshipping needs of those who already had World of Warcraft on Tuesday evenings.
.......
Tentatively, he puts his fingertips on one of Dean's asscheeks and his thumb on the other, and spreads Dean's ass open to reveal the tiny, dusky pink hole. It's really very small, and Sam doesn't want to brag about how well endowed he is, and all the gay porn websites assure him he'll be amazed by how stretchy the muscle is, but he is now genuinely concerned about fitting himself inside of Dean. There will be blood and pain and possibly 'never getting back out again' drama, and maybe this is why it's a suitable act for getting the gates to Hell open.
.........
"That's a finger, Dean. That's one single finger." Obviously, the next step is 'two fingers'. And then 'scissoring'; Sam has read plenty of instructional websites and they are very clear: one finger, two finger, scissoring. After much more reading, he is also fairly sure now that 'scissoring' refers to the motion he makes with his fingers, and is not an instruction to insert a pair up Dean's ass.
