Daniel Radcliffe is a huge supporter of LGBT rights and I love him for that. He's now on board with The Trevor Project, a hotline for suicide prevention in LGBT and questioning youths. Here's what he has to say about this awesome program.
PS, He's totally not a lesbian.

I have this insane belief that ALL things are possible, as long as you work you get it. Me, I want to be a film director, it's my dream. And I was going to go to college for it. (Money issues came in the way, we'll tlak about that some other time.) But then I realized that I don't HAVE to go to college solely for film making. Not yet at least. Look at some of the greatest film makers of all time. Peter Jackson (Lord of the Rings), David Fincher(Fight Club), SIR Ridley Scott (Blade Runner), James FREAKING Cameron! (uhhh, AVATAR?!) Oh yeah, forgot to mention Steven Spielberg! They never went to film school, EVER. Spielberg was actually REJECTED by USC Cinema! This excites me because it gives me hope.
And it bugs they hell out of me when people whine about how they can't accomplish their dreams when they do absolutely NOTHING to even try. Sure, there are money issues, becoming famous isn't a cheap task. Say you want to be an actor. You can't just walk in, audition and be on with it. There aren't many places to audition for movies in Northeast Ohio. Plus, you need headshots. Those can be super expensive. But that, my friend, is the work part about trying to be an actor. It's not a breeze unless you're bankin'.
But you have to believe in yourself and what you're doing. You're just as good as YOU want to be. And it's all about confidence and the ability to turn critisim into a lesson you can take with you. So if you have a dream, don't give up on it just because it's hard. You cna go far if you give YOURSELF a chance. That is all.
Now watch this creepy guy playing the theremin!

If you know me, you'd know that I love to viddy* me some Websoup. It's my favorite show (on air). Even if you don't know me, you probably know I have a huge crush on Web Soups host, Chris Hardwick.
There you have it, a first of probably many postings that will feature my favorite people ever.

These are some videos that i posted a while back that haven't really gotten much attention, and i think they deserve more. Check em out, they're hilarious.
The first video is of my boyfriend and his brother playing that shocking duel game. It proves that men can be really big babies when it comes to pain.
Now THIS video is way different. It's my brother-in-law playing the same game with my boyfriends brother...only it seems to be really one sided. ;)
Hope you enjoyed 'em! let's make this videos viral! Send it to everyone you know!

Okay, guys, here it is. My first blog post! Well, I mean I technically HAD a blog...but does it count if it's myspace? I don't count it. Whatever, all that matters is that I'm doing this one. And it's going to be awesome. So here's a little introduction...
Why did I pick Irish Moontan as a title? Well, I'm of Irish heritage. Easy enough, right? When it comes to moontan, no I'm not making a Golden Earring reference. In reality, I'm as pale as a ghost. Some may call me pasty. Which cracks me up because if you go on urbandictionary.com, most of the definitions of "Pasty" are like "ugly and have no friends"...which feels like a big warm hug to me. Oh well, I'm proud of my lack of pigment, it gives me a uniqueness. So suck it.
I'm a huge geek. Now let me explain something really quick. When you think of "geek" you probably think of a kid with glasses that has no friends and is obsessed with science and video games. Guess what? You're totally wrong. The definition of a geek is this: "A peculiar or otherwise odd person, especially one who is percieved to be overly obsessed with one or more things including those of intellectuality, electronics, etc."
So yes, geeks are a strange people, but we're strange because we have a passion in something. Here's my passion:
