Where exactly is that place “over the rainbow?” Can it be found on Google Maps? Thanks for looking!

Inspired by “Love and Marriage”

Whether you like it or not, the definition of Love and Marriage is evolving.

Frank Sinatra’s “Love and Marriage” (a song many people only recognize as the theme from Married… with Children which premiered in 1987) was first released in connection with a 1955 television performance of Thornton Wilder’s 1938 play Our Town–which is set in 1901.

Think about that: 1901, 1938, 1955, 1987.

And now ** 2013 **.

Think about how the definition of Love and Marriage has changed through the years.

In 1901, women weren’t even enfranchised.
In 1938 there were miscegenation laws–laws forbidding interracial marriage–in 30 states.
By 1955, some of those laws had been repealed, but they weren’t all repealed until 1967.
In 1987, no country on Earth recognized same-sex unions–though two years later, the Netherlands became to the first.
And here we are now in 2013, and the definition of Love and Marriage continues to evolve…

C is for Cookie, that’s good enough for me…

“Inspired By Another One Bites the Dust”

One of my favorite Queen songs… Dust bunnies don’t like to be messed with. =D

It burns my eyes. I understand the words are on fire, but it just ends up looking blurry.

Cool idea and design. Would have like it better on a different color shirt.

Oops, missed the “Inspired by” and had to re-sub.

One of my all time fav songs. Packed a couple of small references in there as well. Hope you like.

wow great visual effects!

By the way, I should get bonus points for this song’s lyrics:

**Love and marriage, love and marriage,
It’s an institute you can’t disparage.
Ask Travis Gentry and he will say it’s elementary. **

I looked and looked, but ThunderThighs did not appear anywhere in the lyrics…

it is working well on royal blue and black , but i had to make a choice.thanks anyway

Hopefully, enough of the optical illusion in the background is showing through to make the cockroaches appear to be in motion. :>

Great design, Danno! So glad you found time to get a entry in!
