This is Bruce Springsteen and Clarence Clemons from the E Street Band sharing an onstage kiss. This was in 1985. The two men are straight, yet they did not let it stand in the way of an embrace.
“It’s the most passion that you have without sex,” says Clemons. “Two androgynous beings becoming one. It’s love. It’s two men — two strong, very virile men — finding that space in life where they can let go enough of their masculinity to feel the passion of love and respect and trust. Friendships are based on those things, and you seal it with a kiss.”
It should also be noted that Bruce Springsteen is often called “America.”

Please, please share this like wildfire.
My classmate, Susan Hess-Logeais, recently told me about the documentary she’s making called “Soar,” about two amazing young dancers, Kiera and Uriah. It’s incredible, and the young ladies featured in this are astounding, talented, dedicated and extremely important individuals.Once I heard, I had to share it here. It’s the kind of thing that actually gets attention on tumblr when everybody else ignores it - ignores excellence in black girls, ignores disabled people, and lets them fall by the wayside. So I’m asking, please, please help these girls out, and if not, please reblog and share.
From the “Soar” press release:
"If you’ve ever seen Portland sisters Kiera Brinkley and Uriah Boyd dance together, you know they share a bond that goes beyond sisterhood. 18 year-old Uriah grew up helping Kiera, age 20, adapt after a childhood illness resulted in the amputation of Kiera’s hands and legs just one month after Uriah was born.
“You really have to see them to believe it,” says filmmaker and dancer Susan Hess Logeais. “Kiera can move in ways that are incredibly powerful and graceful, and Uriah is an expressive and talented dancer on her own. But when you see the two of them dance together, you see everything: the struggle, the bond, the joy, the frustration, the mutual love. It’s truly overpowering to watch, and audiences respond pretty intensely.
Hess Logeais is currently fundraising to help pay for the event and finish her film, which she hopes will be eye-opening and inspiring. “We want to change people’s ideas about what is possible,” she says. “For all of us, but especially for the millions of people living with alternate abilities, Kiera shows us what happens when you challenge your limitations. That’s a message I would love to share with as many people as possible.” To find out more about “Soar,” the film, and see some powerful footage of the sisters’ dance, visit the Soar Seed and Spark campaign. Kiera, Uriah and Susan are hoping that the disabled community will join the “Soar” community and support their efforts.”
"Soar" has a crowdfunding project going, but it’s having trouble reaching its goal - and this is just too important to let slip. Please help. Signal boost, share, donate if you can, but DO NOT let Kiera and Uriah be forgotten.

THANK YOU so much for reading, and THANK YOU for sharing. This is big, and important, and something good that needs to happen. Thank you.

I don’t think there is another country music video like this, ever. A Pac-Man game accompanied with electro sounds, an artist singing about the ugly past of racism - in front of the Lincoln Memorial, no less - and a Japanese country band called Charlie Natagani and the Cannonballs.
Brad has so many unique vids - Online, Southern Comfort Zone, Waitin’ on a Woman, and the list goes on, but this one, Welcome to the Future, takes the cake. “I wanna be a systems analyst… I wanna be an entomologist…” dream on, kids!!
