I was checking out the latest news on Facebook, as you do, and came across this little gem that put a big smile on my face. By no means am I the biggest One Direction fan but I definitely have an appreciation for the boys and the cheese pop that they bring into the world.

It seems that doing “Cup” songs is turning into the rage these days and I’m a fan. I love a capella music and have mad respect for anyone who can stay on pitch without the help of a musical instrument.

In the following video uploaded by Stewart Yu, three people sing a mashup of the following One Direction songs: “What Makes You Beautiful,” “One Thing,” and “Kiss You.” Listen and watch the video below and if you haven’t checked out Anna Kendrick‘s “Cups” remix that is now playing on radio, you can check it out here. Enjoy!

‘The Philosophers’ Debuts Epic New Movie Trailer

In: Calan, Movies

Hot off the heels of my interview with the lovely and talented Katie Findlay from The Carrie Diaries comes the movie trailer for “The Philosophers.” Katie mentioned the movie in our interview together and now that I’ve seen the trailer for it I’m waiting with bated breathe until it’s release. As for a release date I couldn’t track down any solid day other that hopefully soon in 2013.

The film boasts quite the array of actors. Along side Katie we have James D’Arcy (Cloud Atlas, Hitchcock), Daryl Sabara who you might recognize as Juni from the Spy Kids movies, George Blagden from the recent big screen adaptation of Les Misérables, Harry Potter alum Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley) as well as Freddie Stroma (Cormac McLaggen) who is also know as the drool worthy radio DJ Luke from Pitch Perfect, and Jacob Artist (the devilishly good looking Jake Puckerman on Glee).

Find out what the film is about and check out the newly released trailer below.

I recently had the opportunity to chat with the crazy awesome Katie Findlay who plays “Maggie Landers” on the new CW series The Carrie Diaries. We’ve actually known of each other for a while now but our paths just always seemed to have missed each other when we tried to get together. Well, we finally put an end to that with this interview, YAY!

For those unaware of what The Carrie Diaries is about it’s basically a prequel show to Sex and the City and follows the story of a teenage Carrie Bradshaw. I have to admit, I’ve only ever seen maybe 1 or 2 episodes of Sex and the City…I know I’m a bad gay but I just never got around to it. I did see the movies though! Any way, onto the interview with our gorgeous guest!

February: It’s All About The Love

In: Calan, Random Reads, Totally GAY!

It’s that time of year again my friend, the month that holds that oh so daunting day. You know the one I’m taking about, Valentines Day. Just saying it I can hear you cringing from behind your computer screen. Some of you get so overwhelmed and depressed at the thought of all those love notes, chocolates, flowers and countless gifts people will be buying for their intimate partners and loved ones. Being single, one can’t help but wonder “what about me?” You’re now faced with all the things you don’t necessarily want to think about this month…Love…and all things about being single.

But there is hope my friend, yes, even for you. It will take a little bit of work so if that’s not something that interests you I suggest you stop reading now. But, if you think you’re up to the challenge I say let’s get going. Here are a few steps that might help you survive this Love induced season…

I was recently gifted a viewing of an amazing documentary called Happy by my good friend Jay. He had picked up one of those free Starbucks cards that highlights an artist or movie. Having a feeling I would enjoy it, since I’m one of the happiest people he knows, he waited until we could get together to watch it. Well, to say I enjoyed it would be an understatement, I freaking LOVED IT!

Description from IMDB: “HAPPY takes us on a journey from the swamps of Louisiana to the slums of Kolkata in search of what really makes people happy. Combining real life stories of people from around the world and powerful interviews with the leading scientists in happiness research, HAPPY explores the secrets behind our most valued emotion.”

Happy infuses quite a bit of scientific research and study with everyday stories to give it a well-rounded approach to the subject. I loved finding out that in their studies it showed that only 10% of a persons happiness comes from their exterior environment (aka cars, homes, clothes, etc.) That leaves the other 90% of our happiness residing within ourselves and puts us in the drivers seat.

December 21, 2012: What’s Your Take On It?

In: Calan, Random Reads

So the “End of the World” is coming up on this Friday, December 21 and I’m left wondering what everyone out there is thinking. There are so many opinions floating out there about what is going to happen on the 21st that it’s almost impossible to keep up with them all. My work is even having an “End of the World” party after work on the 21st, which may or may not happen depending on said world’s ending or not.

Let’s start with the obvious: Doomsday, the Rapture, End of Days, the Mayan calendar ending, pretty much the world as we know it coming to a compete and utter end Britney Spears’ “Till The World Ends” style. People have talked for years about how the Mayan calendar is coming to the end of a 5125-year-long cycle. There was even a very action packed movie released in 2009 titled 2012 staring John Cusack and Amanda Peet. Will there be huge world shifts? Is the sky going to rain down burning balls of fire? Will the oceans flood most of our lands leaving only a very small portion of the human race alive? Or will the “Big guy upstairs” come down and pass judgement on us all? If this is your cup of tea and personally think the world is going to come to an end, what are your plans? Have you moved to some high remote mountain top so you can live through all the horrible world disasters or are you just going to enjoy the ride?

Sarah McLachlan Presents: Voices In The Park

In: Calan, Music, The Arts

Sarah McLachlan, Stevie Nicks, Jann Arden, Hedley, Chin Ingeti, The Boom Booms, former U.S. President Bill Clinton and our very own Vancouver Men’s Chorus are just some of the acts that will be hitting the stage at this year’s Voices in the Park.

The concert is to take place on September 15th in Vancouver’s beautiful Stanley Park at Brockton Point. All proceeds will benefit the Sarah McLachlan School of Music in Vancouver, “which aims to use the power of music to inspire youth in under-served communities by offering free music programs.” Celebrating their 10th year of being in operation they saw 280 students walk through their doors this year. I wish I had known about the school when I was still young enough to attend (grades 4 through 12). It would have been such and amazing experience and it’s also all provided to the students free of charge. Sarah’s goal for the concert is to net $1 million and I for one am going to help her reach that goal. Since I’m part of the Vancouver Men’s Chorus I do get my own entrance but you better believe I will be bringing ALL my friends and family to this. I was going to go before I even knew we were performing so that was just a magical moment for me personally when I found out we would be performing.

So I was recently encouraged by fellow cast member Patrick to write a Behind The Cast for myself. I never really thought of doing it because I didn’t feel like it went with Homorazzi but seeing as Patrick thought it would be a good idea, here I am! This is a coming out story of sorts (and here I was thinking I’d been there, done that). I recently started filling people in that I’m a psychic. I’ve been doing it for quite a while on a small scale for friends and family mostly but also through referrals. I came out in a big way just recently when I did a big post on my personal blog, Discovering Your Truth, about my psychic work. That post got the most hits my site has ever gotten in one single day so I knew something was about to change in my life. All of a sudden all of my friends and co-workers wanted to book sessions with me and I have been booked solid for the past few weeks. It’s crazy! I was so scared about being ridiculed or criticized by my friends and co-workers but it has been the complete opposite. I guess I should have learnt from my coming out that it would be a good thing (as my was very positive and supportive) but I still had that fear in me. Now talking about it on here is an even BIGGER step because I know what our numbers are for this site and trust me, they are A LOT bigger than my little personal blog. I know that I’m putting myself out there to be mocked and questioned and have my confidence shaken but after Patrick’s little message to me I took that as a sign to just get over my fears and do it.

To many of us are living our lives for other people or in fear of what other people will think about us. As gay men we already know what it’s like to be fearful of being “different” and many of us have already dealt with some of the harsh realities of coming out. I now realize that my playing small about who I am and what I can do was helping no one and as one of my life focuses is on helping others that wasn’t cutting the bread any more. I find that a lot of people are very complacent in their lives the way they are, they don’t want to “rock the boat” so to speak so they keep a lot of who they are on the inside. This goes for everyone out there. So many people are afraid of trying new things, saying what they really think, make a change in their life because they think the people closest to them will in some way make them feel bad about their choice. And you know what, I don’t blame them, you know why? Because so many of us reinforce this horrible habit of trying to knock other people down when they need us to life them up the most. Why is it that when someone achieves something great or has an awesome idea to do something there is always that people who tells them “Oh that’s great but I think you should play it safe and…” and it’s always because they “love” us.
