Vancouver Flash Mob Success!

In: Adam, Behind The Cast

Always looking to take lessons from my (and they’ll kill me for calling them this) “more mature leaders” in the gay world, my friends and I recently had a chance to maximize having a good time with being vaguely good people all while sipping (fine, pounding) some delicious and dangerously fruity martinis on a gorgeous veranda in the centre of downtown Vancouver.

The Rand House is a magnificently restored and rebuilt heritage home found in the heart of the west end at Nelson and Bute and is owned and run (they rent out various sweets in the huge mansion) by two very close friends of mine: sexy husbands in crime. After we returned home from an amazing cruise through the Baltic, the boys from the Rand House decided to host one more “porch party” as they have so casually named the elaborate and hangover-educing Friday summer tradition, but this time with an altruistic goal in mind.

While Donovan has concretely established himself as Homorazzi’s “Man Crush” expert, I felt the need to combine my bailiwick of TV know-how with my long (long, long, long)-term search for a boyfriend by revealing to the world my secret relationship with Sam Jaeger of “Parenthood”. Okay, my obsession with all things TV and getting a hubby are totally true, but being ACTUALLY connected in the REAL world with TV’s Joel Graham… fine, that might be a bit of a stretch- but maybe this article will pop up on his google alerts and I’ll be golden.

To set the scene, before watching this “Party of Five (but with parents)”-esque new drama, I had never heard of the burly dreamboat. Born in 1977 (wow, only 6 years before me… am I getting more reasonable??), Sam Jaeger of Perrysburg, Ohio made his way into some great tv/movie names like “Law and Order” and a personal fav: “Lucky Number Slevin” and recently became a much better-known name in the newest two-seasons-running-so-far show: “Parenthood”. Here’s where my sad kink starts to take over. Playing the blue collar, good-with-his-hands, rustic, plaid lovin’ stud turned stay-at-home dad and perfect husband, Sam has managed to combine what he actually looks like with the character he plays on tv to amalgamate as the man of my wildly inappropriate dreams.

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.
