HATRED CAN BE LIKE FOOD. IT GIVES YOU THIS ENERGY YOU CAN LIKE, LIVE OFF IT: Do you have Anglea Chase syndrome? “Much like Angela Chase, I can not, like, get through like, a sentence, without like, adding the word like, about like 9 million times, or whatever.” (@jezebel)
GOING TO THE EPISCOPALIAN CHAPEL AND WE’RE GONNA GET MARRIED: Episcopal Church officials voted yesterday to allow bishops the latitude to bless same-sex unions — the second vote this week in favor of gay rights and one that may further divide the worldwide Anglican community. (@the washington post) And, at The New York Times, the Episcopalian’s First Openly Gay Bishop is interviewed:
“The most significant thing that happened was [when] … a smaller group of bishops met to discuss [the same sex blessings] further. They said anyone could come, and it turned out it wasn’t a small group at all. There were 25 to 30 of us, and it turned out to be the most significant interaction I’ve had with the bishops since I’ve been elected. It was profound and it was inspiring. People stood up and spoke their own truth, both the pain and the joy. Everyone spoke honestly about what they needed to go home with, what they could live with and what they couldn’t.”
MARISSSA!!: This counts as Sunday FUNday ’cause even though it’s sad, I’m happy they got her to the psychiatric hospital and that the 72-hour hold exists. They needed that shit for Britney. Save Marissa! – Mischa Barton Hospitalized on the ‘Brink of Disaster’ (@foxnews)

GOING TO THE STRAIGHT CHAPEL AND WE’RE NOT GONNA GET MARRIED BUT IT’S GOOD TO GO ANYWAY: Changing Hearts and Minds One Wedding at a Time: “I’ll admit to being a bit wary to travel to Milwaukee to a wedding that would be populated by somewhat conservative Midwesterners and ex-frat boy football players. I tend to stick out like a big gay thumb in situations like this- the gender variant, out of the binary, sissy boy with a fauxhawk and rather fierce eyebrows (if I do say so myself) … Little did I realize that by going and just being ourselves at the wedding, we would change so many people’s views about gay couples.” (@pamshouseblend)

A 2005 interview with Rachel Maddow at Velvetpark “Rachel Maddow Before the Big Time” — she talks about leaving a trial of “happy hearts” like Shane, discovering “Oh, that’s what’s going on below my chin!” while at Stanford and sleeping with girls for the first time, and SO MUCH MORE!!

M4W LEZ: Third Eye Blind is releasing a new album in August, so Stephen Jenkins plays some songs for us — including a song about being in love with a lesbian, which is awesome. It’s probs written about Rachel Maddow (who Jenkins has “an overwhelming and tragic crush on.”) but we’re not 100% sure.
