New Website Cold Feet

January 4, 2013

I am literally one click away from buying the new website and yet I’m sitting in front of my computer not clicking it. A part of me is saying “Buy it!” another part of me is saying “Maybe you should wait until next week” and a third part of me is saying “Maybe you should wait forever; it will suck.” Two consciences was bad enough, but now my feet aren’t cold anymore; they are frozen. What do you think?

Found this on a fellow wordpresser. Looks like 2013 is going to be a great year in film! I believe that the specific dates, however, are for the Philippines.

2012 in Review

December 30, 2012

And here’s a reason why I still blog: My readers! Thanks guys! Happy New Year!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

About 55,000 tourists visit Liechtenstein every year. This blog was viewed about 250,000 times in 2012. If it were Liechtenstein, it would take about 5 years for that many people to see it. Your blog had more visits than a small country in Europe!

One more thing

December 28, 2012

This is a very short post (I guess I could have just tweeted this, but oh well): I am planning on doing a layout theme of the blog, regardless of if I move the website or not.

New Website?… Again.

December 28, 2012

I know I say this at least once a year: I might be moving to a new website again. This is a little different than the others though (I promise). First off, yes, I haven’t posted in months, and I apologize for that. It’s been an incredibly stressful five months so I had to put writing down for a bit. Now back to the new website. I’ve said before that I am a composition major. Well I’ve been thinking about creating an online portfolio of my works. The question is, will I place Soyez Vous-même on that website or keep it here? They would be two completely different themes, but they would be two themes about which that I care passionately. So I will have to keep you posted on this potential change.

 

Anderson Cooper Comes Out. That Is All.

July 2, 2012

“I’m sorry, but casually interrogating someone over his or her sexual preference seems about as well-mannered as asking a woman who may or may not be pregnant when she is due.” ~Michelle Konstantinovsky- HelloGiggles

So as you may have guessed from the title of this post, Anderson Cooper has indeed come out as gay in a public email to columnist Andrew Sullivan in The Daily Beast. So of course there are (and will be) many articles and news headlines about this man’s sexuality. One article that caught my attention was HelloGiggles’ Michelle Konstantinovsky’s article “Anderson Cooper: ‘The Fact Is, I’m Gay.’ Should It Matter When Celebrities Come Out?” Coming out as a non-heterosexual celebrity leaves a great impact on those struggling with their sexualities, but another person’s sexuality (celebrity or not) is absolutely no one else’s business. Anderson came out because he didn’t want people to think that he was ashamed of his sexuality. I like to look at a celebrity’s coming out as the turning on of a new lightbulb of hope. People used to ask me why people wore ribbons; arguing that they weren’t actually helping a cause. I told them that they are helping a cause; they are spreading hope; they are letting people know that they are not alone in this fight. In a fight for equality our allies are our greatest friends because they show no bias. But when a celebrity or very successful person comes out as non-heterosexual, it shows that being who you are doesn’t have to be a hinderance.

I have two more points to make about this. Prior to quoting Anderson’s email, Andrew Sullivan said that even though it seems that we are less and less shocked to know that someone is non-heterosexual, coming out is still a great deal. And it should be (at least at the current state of our society). This new “normal” experienced with someone’s coming out should not blind society into thinking that everything is okay. We cannot forget that teens bullied with homophobia have a much greater chance of committing suicide than other teens. We cannot forget that same-sex marriage is only a state right in only six states and Washington DC. So kudos to society’s being more acquainted with coming out, but the fight is not over until equality is no longer a dream.

I must admit that I am usually very interested in knowing a celebrity’s sexuality. I usually wikipedia every new celebrity and read the “Personal Life” section to see if anything “promising” pops up. It was different for me with Anderson Cooper. I mean I searched for information related to his sexuality, but I shortly gave up on it. He seemed very adamant on not letting his personal life interfere with his career. Besides, only on a blue moon when the dark side of the moon faced the earth would Anderson and I find ourselves on a date together. It sounds funny, doesn’t it? Honestly, that should be the only reason why I would want to know someone’s sexuality; because I would want to date him. And even if that were truly my dream and it were possible for me to date a celebrity, it still shouldn’t be my business. For those of you who want to argue, “but I only want to know for fun,” or “I only want to know so I can dream about it,” or something along those lines, if you truly wanted to fantasize about a celebrity being gay, you would easily do so regardless of if they came out or not.

What I like about this is that on the same day Andrew Sullivan’s post was made, Anderson gave the news without letting the post effect the show. I’m sure he will make a comment or two about it in the near future, but he is not just a gay person, he is also a journalist who effectively and accurately does his job. Keep it up, Anderson Cooper!

Man of March 2012: Benjamin Godfre

May 1, 2012

The votes are in (they have been for a while, sorry) and now I bring you the Man of March 2012, Benjamin Godfre! For my birthday, he was Man of Week 10, and for his birth month, he became the Man of March 2012!

Sorry for the extreme delay (schoolwork and whatnot).

Here’s Gabriel Gastelum’s photo shoot of Benjamin Godfre:

They Just Won’t Stop

April 20, 2012

I got an email asking me to petition a republican senator’s proposal to have a “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” style policy in the workplace to end workplace discrimination towards LGBTQIA community. How stupid can one senator be? DADT failed miserably in the military, so now you want to bring it to the offices? It’s like having a “War to End All Wars”; Let’s “Oppress to End All Oppression.” You are not helping anyone except your insecurities with that one, I’m afraid so. The thing that utterly annoys me is that, when we get the LGBTQIA community safely and equally respected amongst our society, hatred will just move onto another group of people. I would have said minority group, but women represent the majority of our planet and  yet they haven’t received the equality they deserve to show it. And don’t think racism is out of the picture just because “Separate but Equal” is no longer legal.

Sometimes I want to just sit back and watch society eat itself up. That way when the straight and narrow, White Anglo-Saxon Protestant man realizes the only remaining imperfection on this planet is the prejudiced bigot himself, he will have to discriminate against himself and learn the true power of hate.

That is my rant for the moment.

I have been having an extremely stressful month, so I apologize for leaving you with such a angered post.

Change of Plans

April 19, 2012

I will make this short and sweet. To make room for The Infinite Vertices-esque posts, and to relieve a lot of stress, I have decided to reduce the Men of 2012 to a monthly thing as opposed to weekly (and monthly). I will post the winner for the Man of March 2012 poll at the end of the week.

See look: It’s short. :-)

Vote for The Soyez Vous-même Blog’s Man of March 2012!

April 13, 2012

And now I bring you the contestants for the Man of March 2012. There aren’t as many men as there were for February because Chad White took over a week in March as the Man of February 2012. So without further ado, get to voting below! (The links only work in gallery view. Click the thumbnail and THEN click on the model’s name that pops up.)
