we-are-what-we-are-movie-trailer

Well thanks goes to Nic on this pick as he message me late one evening this week asking if I’d seen We Are What We Are. Instructing me I had to download rent it legally and watch it immediately, I was happy to report promptly back to him that this one was worth the watch. Focusing its terrifying tale around the maudlin lives of two sisters, their little brother and deranged father after the violent death of their mother, you really start to worry about just what does go on in the bible belt.

There are no big actor names to draw you into this, no “amazing CGI” of monsters or magic and even the setting is dust bowl depression… what there is is strong acting and an engrossing script and plot. Without giving too much away, you watch the tragic story of past tradition followed blindlessly and without consent by generations of a singular family as they attempt to maintain their bloodline and lives. Does that sound a bit dramatic? Well, the story kind of is. You will cringe and want to shake most of the characters on screen as they acquiesce to tyrannical and unjustified rule. Oh, and you’re gonna see some blood and peeps eating peeps… not like Zombieland worth of cannibalism but enough to make you squirm. It’s drama and terror at its best.

We’re taking the day off today, so we decided to repost some of our favorite Christmas-themed posts from this and previous years.
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE.

If you’re an avid reader of the site, you might’ve noticed there was a shortage of articles Sunday. Reason being was, we were all busy having our Christmas staff party. Given everyone’s busy schedules this time of year, it’s almost next to impossible to find a date that works for everyone. Surprisingly, all but three of us were able to make it yesterday. That’s a pretty amazing feat considering our busy lives and Alex, Kevin and Topher not currently living in the same city as the most of us. Check out the pic above. The only people missing from the pic are Nic (his BF’s sis was in town), Stephen (was there earlier but had to leave for another engagement) and Alex (LA) and Kevin (Toronto).

It was great to have so many of us together to laugh, catch up and reminisce about the early days of the site. Not to sound super cheesy, but there’s this amazing energy among all of us when we’re all in the same room. With our recent accomplishments, it was nice to sit back and relax for one night and pat each other on the back.

In between all the laughs and drinks, we decided to have a gingerbread contest. We split up into two different teams determined by names out of the hat. Team 1 (my team) won the right to pick either the house or the train. We opted for the train. Each team was given only 30 minutes to build, decorate, and come up with a theme for their creation. Now, we need your help to decide which team pulled it off better. Cast your votes so we can declare a winner and give one team bragging rights over the other.

THANKS again to all of you for making Homorazzi.com such a success in a short period of time. We have the best readers on the internet for sure.

Adam’ Gay Indie Review: G.B.F. (Gay Best Friend)

In: Adam, Movies
the-gay-best-friend-movie

If you can find this movie, I don’t care if you have to buy, rent, steal, torrent or what: do it. This movie is an instant gay cult must-see. Is it as outrageous as Drop Dead Gorgeous? No. Is it as infinitely quotable and lasting as Mean Girls? Not quite. Is it modern, relevant and funny as hell? Absolutely-fisting-lutely.

GBF looks at the current trend among girls to have the latest and greatest “it item”… a Gay Best Friend. The film is filled with new and upcoming actors who put a fresh face on the indie film scene and attempt to promote and trend the idea that anyone who’s anyone wants and needs that iconic gay friend. The three biggest queens from high school fight over control of the friendship of the town’s newest gay and comedy ensues. Admittedly, the premise is more fun than earth-shattering, however the script does take on a lot of real issues and in a simultaneously hilarious and informative way. Looking at coming at in high school, being seen strictly as being defined by our sexuality alone and of course the ever-present issues of bullying and acceptance, GBF does a great job of appealing to both youth and adults with this lighthearted movie about being gay in today’s world.

white-party-25th-anniversary

Holy hell, do I already have to cut carbs out of my diet? It’s literally at freezing temperature in Vancouver and I’m looking to prep (both physically and mentally) for the incredible adventure that is White Party, Palm Springs 2014 (WPPS). Not only will Jeffrey Sanker- the party’s longstanding owner and developer- be pulling out all the stops and exploding the tiny desert town with an influx of all things hot, fun and gay, but this is their 25th anniversary… I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s a bit afraid of what that will entail. (Afraid means turned on right…?)

We’ve received a recent press release of the 3-day insane party with the deets on the location and specifics of the major events… but this is just the beginning. In the weeks and months to come we’ll keep you in the know on possible giveaways coming out for tickets as well as the lowdown on the acts and stars that will be performing and just generally attending with their awesomeness at this event. Below is the released plan for the weekend adventure and my specific opinion and recommendations on what you should know in prep for these parties. I personally cannot wait to get back down South to make up some new amazing memories… and, let’s be honest: bang some new amazing guys.

The car burst into flames and then exploded taking the life of the famed actor. At the time Paul was driving a passenger who also died as a result of the accident. It’s been said that no other cars or people were involved. The investigation is still ongoing to understand who was driving and what caused the accident itself. Sources close to Paul explain that he was often taking friends out for rides in his new Porsche GT and that he was in Santa Clarita as a part of a car show that was looking to donate to the victims of the typhoon incident in the Philippines.

Priape Closes Its Doors Across Canada

In: Adam, Totally GAY!

Listing itself as “Your Favourite Gay Store in Canada”, I can truly say that I was saddened to hear the news as I opened up facebook this morning about my local “gay sex shop” Priape closing its doors across Canada. Opened in 1974, Priape was a lot of things to a lot of people. I don’t at all claim to be anywhere near its best customer or an expert on the business, but as a VERY sex positive writer for this site I thought I’d take the time to write an article to announce the sad news to those who haven’t heard and let people post if they had something to say about their time at this legendary establishment.

Adam’s Brit Singer Pick: Hobbie Stuart

In: Adam, Music

This boy is CUTE. If you’re from across the pond and into pop and acoustic covers you’ve more than likely heard your fair share about this boy, but there might be something new for the rest of us to learn about here so please, indulge us! Hobbie Stuart is a relatively new singer out of Brighton, England who is just absolutely killing it with his covers and subtle mash ups of today’s biggest songs. Introduced to me by one of my more music-forward (and very muscled and I do believe single and living in NY just FYI) friends, Scott, through a random weekday post on his fb wall, I first fell hard for this high-pitched youngin’ listening to his recent cover of Miley Cyrus‘ “We Can’t Stop” mixed in with “Best I Ever Had” and “Crew Love” by Drake. The original song (now nearly ruined by twerking for me) is revitalized and given a poetic and romantic depth that Miley wouldn’t ever have dreamed of adding to it. It had me from note two (don’t worry, I’ll attach it after the jump!).

What matters for me is not the kid’s cute looks (he’s 23-years old, so too young for me) but damn does this half-Brazilian pull off an amazing boy-next-door- rather, it’s his musical mind that sees fit to combining unexpected current hits to produce something altogether new sounding… oh, and awesome. His voice- you’ll hear- is not the typical booming bass or even tenor but hits the high notes in a nearly prepubescent manner that wavers ever so slightly as he creeps the top of his registry to guarantee you the balls have dropped: he just REALLY knows what he’s doing! He’s got a couple dozen covers out there on YouTube and it’s actually hella hard to find anything on him except for a few interviews, so whatever little I can do to help propel his name out there, I’m up for it. You’ve got to read on and hear this kid take on huge names like Rihanna, Adele and more and look very good while doing it.

Adam Fall TV Review: Mom

In: Adam, TV Shows

Following the recent tradition of film actors taking to the television set, two of our comedic faves: Anna Faris (House Bunny) and Allison Janey (Drop Dead Gorgeous) take up the role of moms in this latest comedy by the major writer/creator Chuck Lorre who brought America some of its all-time and current biggest hits including Mike & Molly, Two and a Half Men and the Big Bang Theory (having a brain, I’ve only really ever watched the latter on that list personally).

Okay, I’m done with the references: let’s focus on the show… it’s actually kind of funny. First off, it’s not for everyone. This isn’t Mike & Molly humour: there’s a ton of sex drugs and I’m assuming at some point some 90s flash backs to some rock and roll. Very much a SLIGHTLY more family oriented version of 2 Broke Girls as its leading ladies Allison and Anna play off their relationship as mother and daughter who both failed in their respective attempts to parent. Allison was a pill popping ho bag who never cared about Anna until she was grown with her own kids and Anna plays a recovering alcoholic looking to turn things around for her kids. Written out, it sounds a bit Dickensian i know, but there is a constant implant of banter and wit that even this struggling family makes you laugh.
