Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the last Monday of May. Formerly known as Decoration Day, it commemorates U.S. Service Members who died while in the Military Service. First enacted by the an organization of Union veterans — the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) to honor Union soldiers of the American Civil War – it was extended after World War I to honor Americans who have died in all wars. Memorial Day often marks the start of the summer vacation season, and Labor Day its end. Begun as a ritual of remembrance and reconciliation after the Civil War, by the early 20th century, Memorial Day was an occasion for more general expressions of memory, as ordinary people visited the graves of their deceased relatives, whether they had served in the military or not.
Acceptance is crucial—especially when you are a teenager facing all the hurdles of growing up, learning who you are and establishing yourself in society. Add being LGBT, and you begin to see what it is that so many of our youth face today. “GSA (Gay Straight Alliance) Network is a youth leadership organization that empowers youth activists to fight homophobia and transphobia in schools by training student leaders and supporting student-led Gay-Straight Alliance clubs in California and throughout the country,” said Daniel E.

Nina was born in North Carolina, USA, February 21, 1933. In the late 50s she recorded her first album. One song, “I Loves You Porgy“, became a hit and Nina became a star, performing at Town Hall, Carnegie Hall and at jazz festivals with a repertoire ranging from gospel music to African music, from blues to Ellington songs, from classical music to folk songs of diverse origin. Although Nina was called the “High Priestess of Soul” by her fans and was regarded by them as an almost religious figure, she was often misunderstood as well. The High Priestess would walk different paths to find the adequate songs to spread her message. Nina Simone died April 21, 2003 in Carry-le-Rouet, Bouches-du-Rhne, France.
Here it tis’. Did you Guys know that “Pam Grier” aka FOXY BROWN had a true to life ‘Alter-Ego’ by the name of AJITA WILSON, aka ‘George Wilson, Dora DeCarlo etc.’ ? Yes indeed. All the while Miss Pam Grier was making ALL those Hot, Sultry, Hi Grossing “Blaxploitation” films of the 70s, Ajita Wilson was busy in Europe performing, and I do mean “performing”, in Dozens of very Commercial Porn Films mostly in both Italy and Greece and some other countries included. I just happen to have known the Late ‘Ajita Wilson’ because I Designed some of her Costumes in NYC just before she took off for Europe. When we first met, Dora (as I knew Her) befriended me and now I think it was mostly because I had just returned from Milan, Italy and I realized after a while, she had aspirations to go Europe. Often I was bombarded with lots of questions about the People, Places and so on. So. We became somewhat of an acquaintance. ‘Ajita Wilson’ had not taken that name during those times and when she got to Europe is when she made a name change from Dora DeCarlo to Ajita Wilson. This was amongst several other “Changes”!
Dora D., as I used to call her, was quite interesting to say the least. I remember in New York she would call me up to make a Dress for Her if She had a Booking or a Shoot with a Photographer or what have you. She worked as a Model for several Agencies at that time, in New York City and moon lighted doing other things. I do always remember that ‘Pam Grier’ seemed to be the Person that she like to immolate the most. Most of the time she was able to pull it off simply because she was quite tall and very statuesque. Her success as ‘Ajita Wilson’, Ms. Dora D. enjoyed a tremendous bit of success, ALL over Europe. Still till this Day, Ajita Wilson remains being a ‘Cult Favorite‘ amongst many Europeans and others. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Pam Grier (May 26).

So, as result, I’ve been packin’ like crazy ALL Night cause I want to be ready to board that Shuttle headed to, to, to, ah, ah…WHEREVER the Fuck I am going! Thing is. No one has informed me What Airport to go to catch my ride. All I know is that I need to be ready for this trip, this Saturday, by 6 PM., that according to some Guy named Harold [going] Camping. He seems to have my Itinerary, “Confirmed”. I am just Glad that I was able to get this flight without having to deal with PRICELINE.COM or EXPEDIA. I am so relieved. Now if I could just get rid of this Gas.

Man Says, Claims to Be Jesus and he’s accompanied by Mary Magdalene. Even better, they’re both “Australians” and ‘New Jesus’ already has a Website. Miraculous!
Alan JohnMiller, Mary Suzanne Luck Claim To Be Jesus And Mary Magdalene. Miller, 47, and Luck, 32, have drawn in between 30 and 40 disciples since moving to the Wilkesdale region of Queensland in 2007, the Courier Mail reports.
So the New Jesus is Austrailian heh. Must be because ALL that trouble in the Middle East He had to head South. Too Bad “Australian Jesus” resembles ‘Charlie Manson‘ or He might have been a little more convincing, to at least some of those bone heads out there. But. I don’t think even with ALL the PR, “New Jesus” is gonna Get Over.
Maybe they need to Promote ‘New Jesus’ through a better Agency and a Better ‘Catch Phrase’. This gimmick ain’t workin’ for me.
How about a “Gay Jesus” with a Black Lover Who Re-incarnates, Converts, Saves and can Dance really, really good? Ummmmm.
Or, better yet. Let’s just finally Reveal ‘New Jesus” as being A BLACK MAN then maybe and finally Everyone will BELIEVE and Begin WORSHIPING Jesus without trepidation. How about that?
“Screening this film in Cannes for the world’s media will be both exhilarating and terrifying for me,” Allen tells the London newspaper The Guardian. “[The movie] is not about a conspiracy before the crash, but a provable conspiracy after the crash,” Allen says. “[It’s] a conspiracy organized not by a single scheming arch-fiend, but collectively by the British establishment –- judges, lawyers, politicians, police chiefs, secret services, even newspaper editors.”
