Request Jamie Freeze to remove offensive dehumanizing headline in her story titled HE/SHE/IT

41% of all Transgender people attempt suicide at one time or another in their life. We need to try and help bring that number down. Life, in general, is very difficult for transgender humans. They have to face ridicule, discrimination, unemployment, homelessness and sometimes just having no hope whatsoever.


The last thing someone in such a vulnerable community needs to see is to be referred to as "It". This is by far the worst name you can call someone who is transgender. Everyone in the world knows this accept Jamie Freeze, who believe it or not, is a law student.


Please let Jamie Freeze and Renew America know what you think about this.

Save the Yellowstone Bison!

America's last free-roaming wild bison are being slaughtered on a scale not seen since the 1800s. And hundreds more are slated to be killed.

1,600 bison were killed in the winter of 2007/2008 -- more than a quarter of the wild population. This is no way to manage one of the icons of the American West -- especially in a state that prides itself as a destination for wildlife-seeking tourists.

Take action now! Write to the Montana Promotion Division -- the state%u2019s tourism officials -- and speak out for sensible management of these American icons!

Please sign this petition…thank you!

Madhuri's 'We Are Family' moment


It was family time for actress Madhuri Dixit on the sets of 'Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 4' as her sons, husband and parents came as audience members on the dance reality show.

Her sons - Arin, 7 and Ryan, 5 - and husband Shriram Nene are here for their Christmas and New Year's break and seemed thrilled to see Madhuri in the judge's chair on the show.

When the children were asked whether they liked their mother's show, one of them replied: "It is good", while Shriram said it was a great experience.

Madhuri had left her children with her husband in the US before she came here for a three-month break from household chores to make a comeback to showbiz. She has also shot for an advertisement during her stay and plans to go through some scripts as well.

The episode featuring Madhuri and her family will be aired January 3.

Happy New Year! :D

Wish you guys a very happy & fabulous 2011! May you achieve all your goals & touch your dreams. Have loads of fun & stay positive!

And I so have the urge to drink the bottle of whiskey just how heroes drink in Indian movies. They manage to do the impossible. I really want to know who came up with this ridiculous idea, but nevertheless it’s very tempting.

I think 2011 is just the right year to try out all the crazy things. But I guess any time is right to try out things that make us sink into the depths beyond vision.

Stay happy & make the most of the coming year!

Preity to host Guinness Records show

For all you Preity Zinta fans, here’s a good buzz…but not the big screen, instead the small one…

Preity has signed on by Colors channel to play a host for its new reality show Guinness Book of World Records - Ab India Todega – which is in fact an adaptation of international version of the show. In this Indians will be taking on world record holders.

Dia & Zayed: Our film will be about love & heart

Dia Mirza and Zayed Khan have confirmed that they are turning producers with their first film all set to go on floors in the month of February. They would be joined by Sahil Sangha who is not just a co-producer in their production house 'Born Free' but would also be directing their first film.

Between Dia Mirza and Zayed Khan, they have done close to 50 odd films. No wonder, now that they are stepping into production and that too as partners, they understand what to do and especially what not to do.

"I think what is very important is that when you are making a production house, you get an opportunity to correct things that you found were wrong when you worked in other films," says Dia, "One has to have very strong ethos of the company. There has to be a lot of passion and love involved and your first film should be indicative of that. That's pretty much the reason why our first film will also be about matters of love and heart. There couldn't have been any other subject after all."

While the matters of the heart rule here, Sahil has the final word about this unique association that brings him together with Dia and Zayed.

"The most important part about 'Born Free' is that Dia, Zayed as well as I are very comfortable in each other's company," he says with a smile, "We don't hold back on any thoughts that we may have for or against something that one of us may have thought. We can express ourselves well and we know that we can work together. There is this very good synergy which we can find between us that will keep 'Born Free' alive in years to come."

Hrithik Roshan: 2010 has been my year

The actor differs in his estimation of 2010 as far as his career is concerned. According to Hrithik Roshan, the year 2010 has been one of the best years of his career. Says the actor, "I believe it's been more my year than any of the previous years. I've gone beyond anything that I've done in the past. KITES has been my most subtle work. After GUZAARISH I am on a high. I didn't feel this way after JODHAA AKBAR or KOI MIL GAYA or KRRISH. God would punish me and I'd feel ashamed if I didn't feel 100 per cent happiness".

Meet Priyanka's 1st husband - Neil Nitin Mukesh

As the promos and first look of Saath Khoon Maaf has hit television and big screens, people are really looking forward to yet another quirky love story (stories in this case) from the man himself - Vishal Bharadwaj. Along with showcasing an all new aspect of Priyanka Chopra, the film also showcases a rather interesting look of the otherwise chocolate boy Neil Nitin Mukesh.

Neil has taken his look to an all new level as he plays Priyanka's first and of course youngest husband and essays the role of an army major - Major Rodriques. He is seen sporting the narrow brim Fedora hat, sharp suits, pointed shoes and aviators. This is the first time he has been seen in such a structured and classy look. It also is the first time he will be seen with a moustache.

A source close to Neil reveals his preparation for the character. "After Neil was briefed about the character and the look by Vishal Bharadwaj, Neil visited his uncle who is a retired army major general. Neil is known to be someone who focuses on getting under the skin of the character from by learning experiences from real life references. His uncle was very excited about Neil playing an army major. He sat Neil down and took him through the life of an army man thereby justifying why they are the way they are. He also told Neil about the habits, attire choices and attitude of an army man which helped him immensely to get inside the mind of Major Rodrigues".

A production insider reveals that, "When Neil and Vishal sat down to discuss the look, they were both on the same page as far as personifying the character via his body language, style, voicing and dialogues were concerned. They both envisioned Major Rodrigues as someone who is extremely well spoken and strong along with being hot headed."

Malaika & Madhuri on the Sets of Jhalak Dikhla Jaa

I really like this lady & she's so simple.


I had no idea that I would change my mind about Malaika...I don't find her sexy anymore.


This is the woman who plays ugly Betty in Hindi version on TV.


Over all, I know these aren't very nice pics.

Junn Series #3 - Unpredictable MOS!

You Guys!
     Lama tidak blogging ya. Nyaris sepuluh hari!! hoho...
Maaf deh, abisnya pergi liburan ke pelosok gunung. Mau OL loadingnya parah lama banget...
Celakanya, beberapa tetangga udah "ENEGG" sama saya, gara-gara nggak kunjung update dan gak bales komentar-komentar mereka.

    Salah satu komentar yang paling berkesan buat saya nih...
JRENG... JRENGG... JREEENG....
Congratulations and Thanks to Bang Fai Si Lelaki Aneh

faimengatakan...
DUHHHHH dah khatam deh sama postingan ini, buat yang baru donggggggggggggggg
(hehe,,, nggak nyangka sampai segitunya. Jadi terharu nih, ternyata blog jelek mampus kayak punya saya ini ada juga yang mau nungguin update... :)

And, This is it! Saya post cerbung saya ( Yang Alhmd hingga sekarang masih terus dimuat di koran ). Enjoyed it!


   Ringkasan Cerita Sebelumnya: 

Junn dan Riri terlambat sekolah di hari pertama mereka. Gerombolan senior OSIS  berhasil menangkap mereka, da telah berencana mnjatuhkan hukuman. Tetapi, ketua OSIS yang baik menyelamatkan mereka.


 -----Junn Series #3 – Unpredictable MOS! -----

     “Hufftthh…” Gadis di sebelah Junn mendesah.
     “Kenapa, Ri?” Junn berkomentar sambil meniup dahinya. Empat jam pelajaran untuk Matematika dan Fisika membuat ujung jilbabnya mulai melorot.
     “Bernafaslah selagi bisa. Sebentar lagi saatnya,” Teman sebangkunya itu berkata dingin.
     Dan sebelum Junn sempat bertanya apa yang dimaksud Riri, hal itu terjadi.
     “TEEEEEEEEEETTTTTT…!!!”

     Sebuah sirine menggema ke seluruh sekolah. Suaranya dalam dan pilu ―seperti dari dunia lain― membangkitkan bulu roma siapa saja yang mendengarnya.
     “PESERTA MOS BERKUMPUL DI LAPANGAN UTAMA DENGAN AKSESORIS LENGKAP. HITUNGAN MUNDUR SAMPAI NOL DARI DUA PULUH, SEMBILAN BELAS…”
     Suara keras mike yang bersumber dari ruang OSIS itu menendang semua orang untuk segera kasak-kusuk, mengenakan aksesoris berupa kalung berhias petai, jubah kantong kresek besar, rok dedaunan, gelang dari ranting, topi karton, plus dot bayi. Menurut buku MOS, tema tahun ini adalah penyihir.Tapi, Junn merasa yang dikenakan semua siswa baru lebih mirip kostum jin atau dedemit.

     Barisan itu pun tersusun rapi saat senior berambut cepak ―Yang ingin menghukum Junn saat terlambat kemarin― menyorakkan isyarat siap. Beberapa gadis di depan Junn berbisik-bisik, bahwa senior itu yang paling galak, dan bernama Alev. Junn tersenyum geli. Nama senior itu ternyata seaneh orangnya.

     Dan hari kedua MOS itu pun berlalu sangat lama. Belasan murid baru yang menurut para senior bersalah telah mendapat jatah. Rata-rata dipermalukan dan dibuat merah mukanya. Murid laki-laki yang saat ini dikerjai Alev malah sampai menangis segala, gara-gara dipaksa buka seragam untuk memperlihatkan panu di perutnya. Sadis.

     Kalau saja Riri tidak menahan-nahannya, Junn sudah mengamuk dari tadi, tak rela menyaksikan kekejaman di hadapannya.

     Meski demikian, agaknya Alev menangkap gelagat Junn. Sebentar ia berbisik kepada rekannya, kemudian ia berbicara di balik pengeras suara. “Murid baru yang ingin menyampaikan sesuatu kepada cowok ini diberi kesempatan bicara. Ada yang mau?”

     “SAYA MAU BICARA!!” Junn berteriak dari tengah kerumunan penonton di lapangan.
Alev tersenyum simpul. Rencananya menjaring Junn berhasil. “Wah, wah… Kamu mau bicara apa gadis kecil?” Ujarnya menyindir. Dikepalanya tersusun rencana berikutnya untuk mempermalukan Junn.

     Junn semakin kesal, dan Riri tak kuasa menahannya lagi. “Hentikan semua ini, Alev! Anda sudah keterlaluan!”

     Alev sedikit terkejut. Ia tak menduga Junn ternyata lebih berani dari yang ia bayangkan. Sebentar ia berbisik lagi kepada teman-temannya. Seperti meminta dukungan. Salah satu dari mereka kemudian bersuara, “Kamu yang barusan bicara, silahkan ke depan.”

     Puluhan murid baru gaduh.  Sebagian besar mengomentari, Junn mencari perkara. Sebab, dari tahun ketahun, murid baru yang melawan senior selalu berakhir menyedihkan. Sebagian lain berkomentar ikut prihatin, dan mengharapkan Junn tabah. Ada juga yang mendukung, walaupun hanya dengan berbisik dan tak melakukan apa-apa.

     Junn melangkah ke depan. Matanya menatap lurus, menantang bara-bara silau matahari yang sedari tadi memanggang puluhan orang. Ujung jilbab di punggungnya berkibar, ditiup angin lalu. Seolah alam ingin menyemangatinya, seperti beberapa murid lain. Bahkan tanpa ada yang menyadari, secara sembunyi-sembunyi seseorang yang menutup wajahnya dengan sweater berbisik padanya, “Jangan khawatir, bantuan akan datang. Kau tak akan kenapa-napa.”

     Junn sedikit lega. Kalau telinganya tidak salah, itu suara Kak Zhafif si ketua OSIS. Semangatnya yang tadi sempat layu mendadak mekar lagi. Ia seperti musafir dehidrasi yang disiram air pegunungan. Bila Kak Zhafif yang bicara, maka ia tak perlu ragu. Bantuan akan datang, seperti bantuan yang juga pernah ia terima. Dan tak tahu kenapa, mendadak Junn merasa jantungnya berdebar lebih kencang. Dan perasaanya menjadi hangat.

     Ia telah berdiri. Di hadapan semua orang, dan di hadapan Alev beserta teman-temannya. Alev kelihatan puas, bersiap-siap membalaskan kekesalannya ―yang ia simpan― saat Junn menantangnya di waktu pertemuan pertama mereka, di gerbang sekolah.

     “Nah, sekarang apa?” Alev membentak, dengan kata yang persis sama, yang pernah ditembakkan Junn langsung ke ulu hatinya.
     “Kan tadi sudah kubilang, hentikan semua ini! Lepaskan dia!”
     Alev menyeringai, “Kenapa? Kamu takut melihatnya buka baju?”
     “Apa perlu ditanya lagi?” Jun membelalakkan matanya. Beberapa suara dari penonton meletus, mendukungnya, membuat semangatnya makin mekar. “Memangnya Anda tidak takut melihatnya buka baju? Anda senang? Apa anda homo?”

     Puluhan penonton meledak, tertawa serempak. Perhitungan Alev meleset. Rencananya menggiring Junn kedepan untuk dipermalukan gagal, justru ia yang dipermalukan. Senjata makan tuan.

     Kemarahan Alev memuncak, lalu secara tak sengaja ia mengatakan sesuatu yang tak ia rencanakan sebelumnya, membuat semua suara tawa lenyap, berganti kesunyian yang mencekam dan ketegangan yang tak dapat dielakkan.

     “Kalau begitu gantikan! Kamu yang buka baju, dan Kamu akan buktikan sendiri Aku bukan homo!”

     Kedua lutut Junn lemas. Ia merasa ngeri, bila ternyata apa yang barusan didengarnya benar-benar akan terjadi. Kak Zhafif, mana bantuan yang akan datang itu? Ya Allah, bagaimana ini? Teriak Junn dalam hati.

Salman spent his birthday with Katrina

Well, they're certainly close enough to have spent his birthday together right here in Dubai. We told you about how Salman, his family and close friends including Sajid Nadiadwala flew into the city to celebrate his birthday on December 27. And when it came to the actual party, Katrina joined the group.

Salman celebrated his birthday at Caramel Restaurant and Lounge with his family and Kat for company. The party went on till 2am.

After that cool party bonding, it does look like all's well once again with Salman and Katrina.

This woman is such an opportunist. One guy leaves her & she goes back to the option she has never closed. And Salman Khan is one idiot. Lately she was even rectifying her stupid statement that she has worked with Akshay in 7 movies & there can’t be any comparison between Akshay & Salman, as she hasn’t worked in so many movies with Salman. She was quite sure about it on the show few days ago when Ranbir didn’t give her a ditch for another woman.

Had it been someone else, I might have said it’s going to be another interesting episode, but I just can’t say this about Salman Khan.

And it’s beyond me that people want to stay in relationship all the time & in this case, Katrina Kaif hides those relationships even better than how cats hide their shit.

"'Tanu Weds Manu' is a lot of fun" - Madhavan

Though Madhavan has done relatively serious films like 'Teen Patti' and '13 B' in the recent past other than a dramatic 'Three Idiots', it is after ages that he is being seen in a romantic comedy - 'Tanu Weds Manu'.

"No, 'Tanu Weds Manu' is very different," said Maddy (as he is fondly called), "The film may be about a romance blooming in a small town but contrary to popular perception, these are people who are quite modern even though their values are pretty much intact."

'Tanu Weds Manu' required the cast and crew of the film to travel extensively right through the Northern part of India.

"It was one journey of my life," smiles Maddy who had a similar travelling experience in 'Three Idiots' as well, "We shot at places like Indore, Lucknow and Kapurthala. It was a very realistic set up. Having said that it was a lot of fun as well, something that I was longing for."

One hopes to have some fun as well when this Aanand L Rai directed film featuring Kangna as Tanu releases all over on 25th February.

Stop Pets From Being Sold To Research Labs


The U.S. Pet Safety and Protection Act would prohibit Class B Dealers — people who make their livings selling animals to the research industry — and unlicensed individuals from selling dogs and cats to research labs. Currently, under the Animal Welfare Act of 1966, these people aren't held accountable for where they obtain their animals.

Passing the Pet Safety and Protection will ensure that stolen pets and animals acquired illegally or unethically won't end up in research facilities. I am writing to ask that you pass the Pet Safety and Protection Act as soon as possible.

Take Action Please:

Top Ten Projects of 2010

                            
In keeping with tradition, I have created a line-up of my favourite projects (decorating or personal) that I tackled in 2010. I didn't do as many hands-on projects this year, which I think is a reflection of the fact that we have been in this house longer than any other home we've had AND my having spent so much of the year in front of my computer...working.

Here is my list:

1.  My $65 bathroom make-over, inspired by the funky wallpaper, above.
 
2. My new "office", Les Nessman style: 
 (above photo, courtesty Matthew Mead)

3. Well, not so much a project, but still something new. My new Ikea chair, which my three cats haven't managed to ruin yet:
4. A little Halloween craft: 
 5. My dining area make-over. (Trying to get in touch with my more youthful side ;-)
With my new light from Ikea:

6. Decorating Sophie's playhouse for Christmas...why didn't I do this before now?



7. The free $10 light I made for my sister:

8. Christmas snow globes:

9. My Murphy Bed, built by the handyman!!

10. And last but definitely not least, I am so proud of my part in this:


I wrote a large number of the articles, tended the blog, tackled the many letters/emails and questions we received, and had so much fun on the photo shoots I was involved with here and here, and the many other duties that came with my position. Stay tuned to our blog for an exciting announcement (coming soon) about what is coming up next.

Happy New Year, everyone! 
Thank you for following along with my decorating and family adventures in 2010 and I am so grateful for your kind comments, emails and friendship. That is what truly makes blogging a gift.
