Logical question

From Just a Little, by elfieberry, in the Glee fandom

Puck was already in Kurt's pants—what was it going to take to get the rest of him?

Entertainment family

Whenever I want to know sth about an actor/actress/movie/director/series, I run to the Internet Movie Data Base, or IMDb for short. What I hadn't realized, is that there are similar sites where to look for performers out of the small/big screen. And thanks to Eric Millegan and his lovely voice, here they are:

Internet Movie Database | IMDb - online database of information related to movies, television shows, actors, production crew personnel, video games and fictional characters featured in visual entertainment media (incorporated in the United Kingdom since 1996).
Internet Theatre Database | ITDb - online database with information about plays, playwrights, actors, legitimate theater, musical theater, Broadway shows, and similar theatrical information, run by several volunteer theater aficionados, focused on NY but trying to also cover London and Off-Broadway productions, national tours, and regional theater.
Internet Broadway Database | IBDb - online database of Broadway theatre productions and their personnel, operated by the Research Department of The Broadway League, a trade association for the North American commercial theatre community.

Definitions from Wikipedia, obviously.

BONES

In another Bones kick righ now. Ok, Both/Zaddy fanfiction started it this time - I don't even remember where *that* came from! (Though I think one of my ff.net authors may have posted sth and I got the notification and one thing led to another, and...)
Now, here are some of the sites worth re-checking, after sifting through quite a few of them (need to raid them for pics next):

SpoilerTV | Photo Archive | Bones - Mostly because of the awesome promotional photos from all seasons.
Bones Fans Online - well, TRANSCRIPTS!! and some other things. Ok, S6 is incomplete, and sometimes there are differences with Wikipedia's List of episodes and even Fox's Official Site Recaps, but a great resource anyway.
206 Bones - blog format.

More specific:
Eric Millegan's Official Website - Dr. Zack Addy, or Zaddy (fandom nickname)
Eric Millegan on Living (and Acting) with Bipolar Disorder, Part 1 | Part 2 - based on YouTube vids no longer available.

I've been considering watching online series, and this one is on my list, provided I find a good English-speaking site. Meanwhile, I've been reading some episodes: the last with Zack as a regular character, 3x15 - The Pain in the Heart, and his first guest appearence, 4x05 - The Perfect Pieces in the Purple Pond. See the trend? I Love Zaddy, can't you tell?

Inevitable

Taken from alli-sun:
Gay marriage:
1) Being gay is not natural. People always reject unnatural things like eyeglasses, polyester, liposuction and air conditioning.
2) Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.
3) Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behavior. People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage contract.
4) Straight marriage has been around a long time and hasn't changed at all; women are still property, blacks still can't marry whites, and divorce is still illegal.
5) Straight marriage will be less meaningful if gay marriage were allowed; the sanctity of Britney Spears' 55-hour just-for-fun marriage would be destroyed.
6) Straight marriages are valid because they produce children. Gay couples, infertile couples, and old people shouldn't be allowed to marry because our orphanages aren't full yet, and the world needs more children.
7) Obviously gay parents will raise gay children, since straight parents only raise straight children.
8) Gay marriage is not supported by religion. In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are imposed on the entire country. That's why we have only one religion in America.
9) Children can never succeed without a male and a female role model at home. That's why we as a society expressly forbid single parents to raise children.
10) Gay marriage will change the foundation of society; we could never adapt to new social norms. Just like we haven't adapted to cars, the service-sector economy, or longer life spans...

Re-post this if you believe in legalizing gay marriage

Maybe a bit of a simplification of a complex issue, but every time I read some of these absurdities spoken as irrefutable truths I hover between wanting to roll my eyes at the idiocy and hurt someone for the ignorant self-righteousness. Come on, people, you cannot argue with statements so easily refutable and then go on to act as if you are the voice of reason! It's embarrasing!

So true!!

From Firefly, by Araceil:
If Harry could compare English to anything it would be the mugger's language, it follows other languages down alley-ways and beats them up before rifling through their pockets for spare vocabulary – at least that was what Hermione said about it.
