A couple weekends ago, eight of us from the Homorazzi Cast took part in a photoshoot for a brand of ties called Knot Theory. Designed by Tanya Huang, these ties are very unique in both form and function and have both men and women standing out among the crowd when wearing them. These modern ties make a statement and are very easy to integrate into your wardrobe and personal style.

When we each met with Huang, she wanted to make sure that the ties and colors we wore complemented our own personal style. There are several ties to choose from in the current collection, and even more colored and embroidered knots, allowing you to achieve countless looks with one tie. In each of the two-part ties, the knot is fastened by way of a chain link which is inspired by old fashioned cufflinks. Brilliant!

We had such a blast during our photoshoot with the sexy & talented photogropher Brodie Soon of Freshworks Photography. We were also lucky enough to have Reel Illusions on set to capture the whole experience in the video below.

The photoshoot took place at OUTtv studios on the set of our upcoming new show! Stay tuned for news on that in the near future. In the meantime, as Tyra would say, check out our “best shots” below and find out where to get your own Knot Theory tie!

From a comfortable seat on an American Airlines flight (home from Dallas Texas) I worked for the last two hours on my current work assignment when, in a moment, my mind drifted and I was backspacing out a sentence about my experiences at Out & Equal from my work. I suddenly found myself opening a new word document and this article was born.

I have been in Dallas since Monday October 24th for a conference – Out & Equal. In my work for HSBC Bank I am exposed to people from all different backgrounds, sexual orientations, and so on. We participate in employee resource groups (ERG) that allow our Lesbian Gay Bi and Transgendered staff to find comfort and rally together for change. The HSBC Pride Network is a club that our employees can find on the intranet site and a network of people that provide unified support for our employees while we challenge management to place value on workplace equality and the cost of not allowing us to be our full and authentic selves at work. I lead the Western Canada Chapter of the Pride Network (Our ERG) as such I was invited by my counterpart US ERGs to join them for the LGBT summit this year.

Hey friends, I’ve been experimenting with barefoot running over the past 3 weeks. I was inspired to give it a try after seeing the articles for Vibram Five Fingers in both Men’s Health and Men’s Fitness over the past year. After the last three weeks I can honestly say; try it… You might get a few confused glances while your motoring around the seawall or walking out of the gym locker-room in the goofy looking shoes, but it’s worth it!

I am currently running on the Vibram Five Fingers Bikila and have, more now than in the beginning, loving it. I have to admit, the first few weeks were challenging. Changing to this kind of running shoe will not only force your body to adapt to a new running style but it will also, initially, reduce your time and distance. After three weeks I finally feel like I am regaining my stride and wake up without burning calves the morning after.

I started preparing to barefoot run in Vancouver a few weeks ago by following some of the instructions available at http://www.vibramfivefingers.com/ -do it. The recommendations provided on Vibram’s website will make your experience more enjoyable. It is a a completely different running experience. The seawall in Vancouver proved a good testing ground for the Vibram Five Fingers. Initially, feeling rather bold, and completely ignoring the advice on the vibram website, I cut my run down to six kilometers and was feeling like superman as I headed in the doors to my apartment afterward. Then, fast-forward to the next morning… I could hardly stand up! Out came the tiger balm and I realized exactly what they were referring in the instructions -start off slowly. Let’s just say – three days later I cut my barefoot run down to three kilometers and have gradually increased back up to my normal 10 km now.

Movie Review: The Adjustment Bureau

In: Brian, Movies

Starring: Matt Damon and Emily Blunt.
Based on: Philip K. Dick short story Adjustment Team.
Written and directed by: George Nolfi.
Other notable cast: Anthony Mackie, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Michael Kelly, John Slattery, Terence Stamp, and Anthony Ruivivar.

The Adjustment Bureau is an entertaining romantic-action flick staring the Devil Bourne Wearing Prada couple Matt Damon and Emily Blunt. Both have a believable on screen chemistry that I found more and more appealing as the film progressed. I was surprised by how much this film focused on the love story between Emily and Matt; the trailers setup more of a Matrix style film in my mind. I was also surprised by how many religious references were incorporated. I actually like the way that they were able to weave the hand of god throughout the entire plot.

WOO HOO, the Oscars are finally here. It feels like forever since we first started talking about them. There are so many things to look forward to tonight. Will Anne Hathaway and James Franco make us laugh? Which actress will dazzle on the red carpet? On the flip side, who will shock us with their interesting fashion choices? Which movie will dominate tonight and win the most awards? But most importantly… which Homorazzi cast member will predict the most correct winners? I know, it’s so exciting you can barely stand it ;)

Patrick, Dan, Brian, Adam, Jonny, Rich, Nic, Redd and myself have all cast our ballots for tonight’s ceremony. We all love a little friendly competition, and would love to have bragging rights amongst us as the official unofficial Oscar guru at Homorazzi. You can check out all our selections below and afterward, place your votes on which cast member you think will come out on top? Pssst, a little secret. Like ‘N Sync sang, “It’s Gonna To Be Me“.

Last weekend, the majority of the Homorazzi cast headed up to Whistler, B.C. for the 19th Annual WinterPRIDE Gay & Lesbian Ski Week. As always, we had a blast, with the majority of us nestled in our Glacier’s Reach condos in the village. There were people from all over the world in attendance for the week of festivities

Homorazzi cast skied and snowboarded the picturesque mountains of Whistler Blackcomb, felt the adrenalin rush of the tubing park, mixed & mingled at the the apres skis, and ripped it up at Snowstorm, Whoossh, Furrocious, and Snowball. Some of us even jumped off a bridge at Whistler Bungee! Last year’s winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 2, Tyra Sanchez wowed everyone with her performances, as did Homorazzi’s own Tommy D, performing as his alter ego, Syren.

If you missed out this year, be sure to go next year – especially because next year will be the 20th Annual WinterPRIDE! What a part that will be! Check out the video montage of our weekend below. I figured Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” was the perfect fit for such a pride -filled weekend. Enjoy!

This past weekend, the cast of Homorazzi took on WinterPride in Whistler, B.C. It was a fun filled weekend (more on what we got up in an upcoming article & video) but on our way back home to Vancouver on Sunday, we had one thing left to do: Bungee Jumping at Whistler Bungee, located 15 minutes south of Whistler Village. Whistler Bungee has a perfect safety record and their jump masters and operators have over 25 years experience!!! It’s good to know you’ll be in safe hands.

After having a late brunch on our way out of the village, Donovan, Brian, Nic, his bf Tyler, Tyrell, myself and our Seattle friends Trevor and Chris headed out to Whistler Bungee. Who was going to be jumping? Nic and our friend Trevor. I myself had done it several summers ago and was in no rush to jump off a bridge again anytime soon, despite how much fun I had. When we arrived, we met up with several of our other friends that had already commenced operation “jump off a bridge”. The setting for Whistler Bungee is breathtaking, set on a bridge spanning 300 ft across and 160ft above the Cheakamus River, with old growth forests and rugged basalt column cliffs all around you. It truly is stunning, and with the snow covering the area, it felt like we were in Narnia.

It was so much fun watching cast member Nic, his boyfriend Tyler (who took another one of our friend’s spot who had bailed at the last minute…ahem…David), and cast member Jonny‘s boyfriend Kodie, along with so many of our other close friends take the jump of a lifetime. Watch the video below to check out our experience at Whistler Bungee.

What makes a great commercial? Dramatic, funny, human interest, memorable, taboo… relatable?

The Super Bowl draws some of the best advertising efforts of the year. This year was no exception. So, here’s my list of companies which produced the winning and losing commercials of Super Bowl XVL.

2011 Super Bowl Winning Commercials

Budweiser (NYSE:BUD)

No stranger to this list, Budweiser is back again this year with some excellent commercials. My favorite beer commercial this year is representing the bud light brand.
