Can somebody record Mr. Booze saying “talk time” so we can all make it our ringtones?
I have this weird fascination with wedding photography blogs. I can find myself on the computer doing something entirely relevant to school and somehow, twenty minutes later, manage to find myself sighing over the gorgeous nuptials of some strangers. By no means do I see myself getting married young and it really is a ridiculous thing to be even thinking about now (I can barely decide what flavor to get from the ice cream man), but weddings (well actually- wedding photography, to be exact) can be so beautiful. It’s the happy ending without the prequel or the sequel. You can’t see if the couple stressed about seating arrangements at the reception or got a divorce the next year. You only see the perfect moments of love, a second in their life unblemished by worries and hardships.
Of course, love isn’t perfect. The weddings photographed probably weren’t perfect either. But, as an outsider, I still can’t help but swoon over it.
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - Same Love (ft. Mary Lambert)
The right wing conservatives think it’s a decision
And you can be cured with some treatment and religion
Man-made rewiring of a predisposition
Playing God, aw nah here we go
America the brave still fears what we don’t know
And God loves all his children, is somehow forgotten
But we paraphrase a book written thirty-five-hundred years ago
I don’t know
I heard this for the first time on the radio today and I stopped what I was doing and just listened. My respect for Macklemore honestly quadrupled today.
Till the day that my uncles can be united by law
I don’t think I’ve ever related to a song like this before. “It’s very hard to demonize people when you know them.” I never had an opinion on gay rights before family members came out and that’s when I realized- there is no “gay agenda” or “straight agenda”. It’s really just about letting people be with who they love and recognizing it. I want a culture without shame, a culture without hate, a culture that we don’t have to hide who we are and who we love.
One song won’t change the world, but I hope it makes the difference in the eyes of a kid who knows that his favorite singer would accept him for who they are.

Final project for my comparative social movements class.
I really like this, Tyler!
