Me & My Grandmother | 2011

Queen | Freddie Mercury & Brian May 1986
Is This The World We Created?

Be thankful for something this Thanksgiving, people.

And make a difference.

One person can.

Freddie Mercury's Last Statement

Following the enormous conjecture in the press over the last two weeks, I wish to confirm that I have been tested HIV positive and have AIDS. I felt it correct to keep this information private to date to protect the privacy of those around me. However, the time has come now for my friends and fans around the world to know the truth and I hope that everyone will join with my doctors and all those worldwide in the fight against this terrible disease. My privacy has always been very special to me and I am famous for my lack of interviews. Please understand this policy will continue.

75 Years Ago Today | LIFE was born

When LIFE magazine's premier issue hit newsstands on November 23, 1936, a star was born. With a simple red-and-white logo and distinctive, bold band anchoring its bottom edge, LIFE's cover was soon as recognizable an American icon as the spire of the Empire State Building. Across seven decades, LIFE's 2,000-plus covers not only captured pivotal people and momentous events, but again and again defined and even, in some cases, helped shape the times. Here, on the 75th anniversary of the magazine's debut, presents all 2,237 covers. Browse and be amazed . . .

It's so hard to love
there's so much to hate...

hanging on to hope 
when there is no hope to speak of...

and charity is a coat you wear
twice a year...

No Rescue here.

Just several attempts at having me 
spend money I already spent.
