The Cutting Edges Oktoberfest/Daddyfest!

In: Adam, Behind The Cast

Coming into Thanksgiving weekend is always a bit of a dubious situation for me: is everyone heading out of town? are any parties actually competing with the family-ridden vacation? how many more kids have my siblings created this year around to bring to the dinner table? So, to find out that yes there is a proper event for us mo’s to enjoy was a definite smile inducer… hearing that it’s being hosted by the built boys of the gay hockey league was a definite, well, you-know-what erector 😉

The Cutting Edges (a reference to the kitsch 90s skating cult classic?) are Vancouver’s gay hockey club and they host an annual dance party called Oktoberfest for fans and friends alike to drink, dance and skate at (for the few dozen brave enough to combine tequila and toe picks 😉 Last night it was hosted at the Denman rinks and was by all accounts a total success… okay, I actually kind of failed miserably at my true mission to finds me a husband, but that was certainly not due to a lack of prospective bachelors: this party is a veritable beefy, sausage fest!

Is Racial Preference Racism?

In: Adam, Politics & Issues, Totally GAY!

Yesterday, I was cruisin’ for a bruisin’ (you know where 😉 using Grindr and came upon a picture of a young black guy who had posted a smiling picture of himself with some interesting stats to accompany the profile: “Age 20, 5″10, 150 lbs… white”. Upon seeing this I burst out laughing at the sheer hilarity of it. To give it some context, your profile on the gay, hookup, iPhone app Grindr has a default of no ethnicity so one must choose to post what race they are and second, the “slipped finger” excuse doesn’t apply here as the “black” response has 5 different options between it and “white”. Realizing this choice was more than likely made on purpose I reasoned it was okay to post a screen shot of this scene to my facebook for my friends to “like” and laugh at. Just as I was about to post it however, I wondered: “Is it racist to laugh at this?” I know me, and I know I’m not a racist person but am- like the rest of the world- sensitive to the issue and always try to think before I speak and act on issues of race, religion and ethnicity. In the end, I of course posted the pic and got a bunch of fun and non-hateful comments from my friends regarding it. But, the whole situation caused me to think about race and dating on the internet.

So many tragic stories in the news lately of gay teens been bullied in school to a point where they feel they just can’t take anymore – to a point where they take their own life. It’s so sad. If only we could tell them to hold on, to let them know that it gets better and life after high school is really where your life begins.

The writers/cast of this site are gay, and we’ve all gone through the sometimes troubling times of high school, so we were very eager to share our stories and contribute to the “It Gets Better” campaign. Because it does. It gets so much better.

If you’re being bullied in school, you’re not alone. There is someone here for you – someone who cares and understands. Call The Trevor Project, a confidential, toll-free, suicide hotline for gay & questioning youth. It gets better!

Listen to Homorazzi cast members tell you how & why it gets better after the jump

As a big Taylor Swift fan (not even gonna closet that music-crush!), I was pretty unimpressed with Kanye West‘s antics last year at the VMAs as he trampled her big win and tried to award the trophy to Beyonce cause she “deserved it”. So, after a year of not paying attention to the diva’s (and I do mean Mr. West here) releases and newest videos, I allowed him to pop onto my screen while viewing October 2nd’s episode of “Saturday Night Live” and i was BLOWN away! We all love Katy Perry and her apparently huge boobs (thanks to last week’s episode for showing us that!), but her September performance on SNL was lacklustre and basically amounted to a shuffling of feet back and forth on stage… Kanye however (who was brilliant a year or so ago as he belted out in front of a huge lightbulb-filled backdrop) showed all past and future musical starts just how to do it. His performance was stunning, classy and over-the-top in all the right ways.

He performed twice (click through to see them both) but while “Runaway” was great, his act “Power” was jaw-dropping and gorgeous. Looking like a hugely-invested into opening to “America’s Next Top Model”, “Power” had the self-crowned Czar opening to a sea of blanket-covered models crowding the stage like a sea of undulating beauty as he descended a mid-stage staircase. Without boring you too much with praise of this piece and over-analyzing/describing the preciseness of choreography and styling, I do have to say that the man that created this masterpiece is a genius. Doing exactly what it was suppose to I’m currently hunting down everything this man has recently put out to have this number bompin’ on my iPod the next time I get in my car.

You know I loves me some action and don’t get squeamish at even the “juiciest” of Tarantino’s slasher scenes but I kind of double-took the moment I popped onto iPhone’s App Store to see a new Top 3 choice on the Top 25 Free Apps list: “100 Nazi Scalps”. If you don’t immediately recognize the reference, it’s from the great director’s latest (2009) foray: “Inglorious Bastards”. And, true to its namesake, this game is topped with kills, gore and, well, a lot of nazi scalps.

Created by MYZ Productions, the game is an arcade-styled, 2-way-running-game-play with 6 levels and offers 7 different types of weapons… oh yeah, and either a knife or bat for “getting scalps”. The game is pretty straight forward except for the fact that after you shoot down an attacking nazi they sway at their knees ready to get scalped (man, the amount of times I’ve had to type that sentence in my life 😉 I’m a little surprised there’s been no blow-back for the use of a concept from the movie, but legalities aside I find it hilarious we’ve come to such an open-minded place with video games and violence that this baby is available at a click of your phone. Please do not think me the “Thought Police” here: I love progress in any and all forms and am the last to balk at violence… Christ, have you SEEN my last movie review? Just wanted to get the word out there and see what the interest was like!

A Chilly New Thriller: “Frozen”

In: Adam, Movies

Forgiving the lame pun, this movie is actually quite well done: full of cringe-worthy moments just like a thriller ought to be. Combining the hot, mainly tv-actress Emma Bell with the once-too-young sexy “Transamerica” homo son Kevin Zegers alongside the boy-next-door Shawn Ashmore (“X-Men’s” Iceman), this 90 minute scare-fest pulls off a pretty damn decent flick. As oppose to recent fright films like “Resident Evil“, “A Serbian Film” and “Piranha”, “Frozen” is not so slash n’ gore but rather sustained fear and less-is-more bloodsport: an appreciated break from the norm.

Set on the ski hill, we endure the tortured limbo of a couple and their disgruntled friend’s nightmare: being held captive by a shut down ski lift as they head up the hill in an attempt for “one more run.” Admittedly, you need to set aside a bit of reality to believe that in this day and age, a mountain could let this stranding happen, what occurs after the sun sets and the kids start to panic is actually quite believable and painful in a “that’s what I would do” kind of way as we watch their terror unfold. And, don’t worry, it’s not just the story of a bad case of frostbite 😉 The characters are realistic, their dialogue is simple but accurate and the suffering they endure is both cringe-worthy and utterly likely considering the situation. Short but sweet, this thriller doesn’t need incestuous, stalking mutants or raised zombies to sell its fear factor- just plain old “god I hope that never happens to me” storylining.

Off the top of my head, I have no clue where I heard about this recent release, but if you decide to watch this- please remember you have me to blame (unless you’re angry, then try and forget it!). Title and first sentence into this article you likely have the impression that I hated this movie but JUST THE OPPOSITE! I love any film that fulfills what it and its trailer promises: this movie claiming to be “The Most Horrific Film Out There” pretty much tells the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help them satan! While I jest about the darkness of this movie, I do have to immediate disclose that this is absolutely not for anyone with even a sliver of a faint heart. Hell, I’m just chauvinistic enough to say that no woman out there should watch this either. “A Serbian Film” (“Srpski Film”) is a combination of horror, pornography, suspense and psychological thriller… heavy on the first two.

The movie revolves around a tired but loving father and husband Milos- a former C-List porn star from Serbia who gets a second chance to make one last film for more money than he’s ever made before. Wanting to provide for his family, the wary, aged porn star quickly finds himself increasingly worried and confused by the film he’s starring in as the “artistic” director refuses to offer him a script or tell him what the movie is even about. Chosen for his singular talent to achieve and maintain an erection for as long as he wants, Milos begins to realize he’s not just involved in an indie skin flick. Paired with the usual naked, busty Eastern European ladies of the evening, a young orphan cross between Lolita and Alice In Wonderland keeps popping up in the background of his sex scenes in more and more inappropriate ways until Milos decides to quit the project… but, no one is about to let him do that.

The Vampire Diaries Season 2 Begins With a SNAP!

In: Adam, TV Shows

Say what you will about some of last season’s slower episodes of “Vampire Diaries“, last night’s Season 2 premiere begins like the opening scenes of “Scream”. All I can say is thank Christ that damned ring was chopped off the lame-o uncle’s hand… one of the dumber story lines as from day one we ALL knew that was a pretty damn easy way to loophole around the “immortality ring”! But, spoiling plot-line reveals aside, I’m actually pretty damn impressed with how this show made its comeback on the CW this year. Often, with these shows of secret powers/identities/pasts, the only thing keeping the good guys from properly working together are lies and unnecessary interruptions in the flow of info- an issue this show definitely suffered from in the first season. I’m gonna assume either new writers were brought in or the previous ones got a swift kick in the ass because “Vampire Diaries” has smartened up! As shows like “True Blood” and “Supernatural” set 21st century standards for smart fantasy series, I’m glad to see this one has risen to the charge and manned up with coherent and reasonable (for a world full of sexy vamps) storyline.

Now for my review. First off, Bonnie thank God you dropped the spurned bitch routine and have finally met the limits of your powers. While I love the lesbo-witch twist “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” offered us oh so many years ago, the problem with introducing such powerful characters is giving them too much control. This season starts with Bonnie flaunting just enough mojo to stay a threat but keeps her from destroying all the immortals with just a flick of the wrist. Second, the first season’s underlying question is final answered as Katherine gets invited to the party and Nina Dobrev’s acting talents are put to the test as she pops back and forth between the evil and ever-good role of Elena Gilbert with surprising ease. Her vampiric version of multiple personal disorder is actually extremely well-presented and came across as shockingly believable. Surprise surprise, the evil one is hotter… must be the layered and curly locks- and the fierce leather Italian cut jacket 😉
