2012 Independent Spirit Awards Nominees

It's that time of year again when Hollywood starts celebrating the best the year in film had to offer. Oscar research begins with the Independent Spirit nominees.

Lady Gaga Thinks All Her Boyfriends Hate Her Eventually

Lady Gaga has been getting cozy with her "YoĆ¼ and I" music video co-star Taylor Kinney of late, but a series of relationships gone awry have colored her view of long-term romance.

The Mother Monster recently opened up about her love life with Vanity Fair, explaining, "I have never felt truly cherished by a lover. I have an inability to know what happiness feels like with a man."

Gaga, who once called her on-and-off boyfriend Luc Carl her muse, has chalked up the bad romance to intimidation. "I have this effect on people where it starts out good. Then, when I'm in these relationships with people who are also creative, or creative in their own way, what happens is the attraction is initially there and it's all unicorns and rainbows. And then they hate me."

"I think what it really is, is that I date creative people," Gaga mused. "And I think that what intimidates them is not my purse; it's my mind."

It sounds like Gaga's main issue is dating insecure dudes. Romancing the world's most popular performer is never going to be easy, but it's got to be much harder if you haven't found your professional groove yet (Luc Carl is best known for shopping a weight loss program called "The Drunk Diet"). Gaga just needs to up her game and date someone who's very, very secure.

Will Lady Gaga Ever Find True Love?

Spotted in rural Pennsylvania firing off shotgun rounds with her rumored boyfriend Taylor Kinney, we couldn't help but wonder if Lady Gaga had finally found a sense of normalcy in her life. Everyone knows your typical American gal loves the woods, half-bearded men, and dangerous weapons. What we aren't sure of: whether or not the pop sensation will ever find true love.

Christmas Quotes

Love came down at Christmas,
Love all lovely, Love Divine;
Love was born at Christmas;
Star and angels gave the sign.


Thanksgiving is a day of "thanks" celebrated primarily in the United States and Canada each November. More specifically the fourth Thursday in November. In 2011 Thanksgiving will fall on November 24th. Thanksgiving is observed by both Federal and State Governments as a major holiday. The history of Thanksgiving is one of great debate. So how did Thanksgiving begin?

Thanksgiving originated in North American from a hodgepodge of ideas from both Native and European traditions. In the United States the modern Thanksgiving holiday as we know it today can be traced back to 1621; however, some believe it goes back even further to 1565. In 1565 Spanish explorers in Florida had a harvest celebration. The celebration we think of as the first official Thanksgiving, the one that took place in 1621, was held at Plymouth, in the state that is now known as Massachusetts.

The 1621 celebration and feast was the result of a good harvest that year. This harvest is reported to be in part thanks to the help and wisdom of the Wampanoage Native American Tribes. These Native Americans helped teach the Pilgrims how to fish and plant various seeds for food and reproducing crops. History reports the Pilgrims did not have enough food or skills to feed themselves.

The history of Thanksgiving is still up to debate these days. Some disagree on the location and who actually started and founded the holiday. Some believe it was the United States, some do not agree. Some historians believe the first Thanksgiving was founded by the Spanish in 1565.

Regardless of the dates and where it was founded one thing everyone can agree on is the meaning - to give thanks. More specifically in earlier times it was to give thanks for food and bounty, something that was not easy to come by back then. The first Thanksgiving is reported to have served very different foods than the ones Thanksgiving is known for today.

Native Americans and Pilgrims were reported to feast on fish, shellfish, fowl, venison, berries, peas, pumpkin, beetroot and grains. Another important staple they were known to feed on was maize which is also known as corn. Although some of those foods overlap with today, not many do. The history of Thanksgiving also focuses on days of prayer thanking God for bountiful blessings and good crops.
