This week country singer Trace Adkins helps joins the panel with the Trumps as one of the judges. The Celebrities congregate at The Bottom Line Cabaret to hear their task from Mr. Trump for this episode. They have one male and one female country singer, that are up and coming. Their task is to choose one of them to work with (after negotiating with the other team) give them a makeover, create a press kit, and help them overall with their image. They will also do an interview with People Magazine, and the teams will be judged on how they prepped the artists. Meanwhile, Sharon Osbourne’s still sick, which Holly thinks is not fair.

Cyndi is project manager for the women, while Bill Goldberg is the project manager for the men. As the task commences, the women are already bickering, with Cyndi clashing with everyone as per usual. As project manager, Cyndi being especially controlling in this episode. Girls really want Emily.

I definitely feel a shift in the air as the temperature begins to increase and the sun begins to blaze over us more often. Definitely seems to be both “same old, same old” and “a lot” going on in my life simultaneously. I’ll focus on a couple of fun things that took place in the last couple weeks. One being soccer season starting up and the other, a photoshoot.

Soccer Kicks Off

soccer-patrick-adam-ofk

This will be my 6th season playing in the Out For Kicks (OFK) Soccer League this summer. For a few years, I was a Board member, but this year I decided to take on being a Team Captain with Adam. Yes, Adam. Can you imagine? Best team ever right? LOL. Today, and last Sunday, Adam and I helped to assess everyone’s skill level, so that eight balanced teams of approximately 20 people on each can be made. Our team name? The Plastics (Adam’s idea). So, naturally we had “The Plastics” taped onto the back of our clipboards, making it visible to those we were assessing. We’re huge dorks (or bitches), I know. But seriously, it’s all in good fun – and that’s why I love the league. In the fall, Adam and I also play in the Vancouver Metro Men’s League as well. Actually, Adam’s playing in that league as well over the summer (soccer overkill in my opinion). Also from Homorazzi playing in OFK this season: Dan, Jonny, and Stephen.

Spring Break(Ups)

Flowers blooming, spring is a time for fresh starts & new beginnings. Love is in the air. With that in mind, Spring is also a time for Spring Cleaning your home and sometimes in your life. People are re-energized and feel the need for new beginnings in different areas of their life, just as nature does. Self reflection and setting new directions can, in some cases, lead to breakups. It’s now that time of year again. Summer’s approaching and it’s seems like everywhere I look (even in my close circle of friends), as well as on all the latest headlines – couples are breaking up. “So and So is no long listed as in a relationship,” as Facebook would say.

Here’s a list of the celebs that officially broke up this past week:

Ricky Martin Naked

Earlier this week, the recently openly gay and extremely sexy She Banger, Ricky Martin tweeted a video of him naked. Well, it is actually a promotional concert video from 2007, but it seems he’s bringing it back, considering it fits with his recent public developments. The video features a nude Ricky with tattoos written in Spanish covering his body. The “jerky” way that it’s shot reminds me of something you’d see at a Madonna or Lady Gaga concert in between sets – see, he does fit in as a gay icon! Only thing is, it looks like he’s in a big tanning bed. Haha.

The tattoos translate into English for “find yourself,” “forgive” and ‘change your life.” Well, he must have been watching that video on repeat for three years before it inspired him enough to come out. In all fairness, everyone has a different story and a different struggle for coming out. I imagine he had a team of people threatening him in the past, that if he came out his career would be over. Unfortunately, this is not uncommon in show business, but thankfully with people like him (finally), Ellen, Jane Lynch, Neil Patrick Harris, and more – this is changing. Just because you’re gay, doesn’t mean you can’t play a straight part. Hell, if anything, gays are experts at it, playing the role for the first half of their lives in many cases.

So, enjoy the sexy video of mister Ricky Martin, who I gladly welcome (officially) to our team. I also welcome more of these videos. Thank you. Enjoy!

The goods are after the jump…

Hanson Brothers Pay Tribute to the Blues Brothers

Hanson (aka. Mmm Bop!!!) is back and they’ve just released a video today for their single “Thinking ‘Bout Somethin’ from their upcoming album Shout It Out, to be released on June 8th. The video was directed by Todd Edwards and shot in their home town of Tulsa, Oklahoma.

It’s great to see that these three brothers (Isaac, Taylor, and Zac Hanson) passed their awkward adolescence stage and are back for more! The video is actually pretty fun and well made, (also as the article title suggests) paying tribute to The Blues Brothers music video for “Twist it (Shake Your Tail Feather).” There’s also a cameo appearance by Weird Al Yankovic as the tambourine player. Random, but who cares!

What do you think of the new song/video by Hanson?

WTF: Just Like Mom’s Creepy Pedo Moments

In: Patrick, Random Reads, Videos
just-like-mom

This is actually very bizarre – if bizarre is even the right word to use in this case. The premise of this hit Canadian talk show that aired between 1980 to 1985 on CTV was to determine which child & mother pair knew each other the best, through “answer-matching and the Bake-off Challenge.” Sounds normal enough – until you meet the host. It was hosted by Fergie Oliver (actually, also his wife Catherine Swift) but she is not the focus of this post.

I came across this video compiling some of the most awkward and creepy moments on his show, where he continually and persistently asks little girls for kisses. Okay, this type of could be normal for family, extended family, close family friends, but some random stranger TV host putting these kids on the spot and trying to force them to give him a kiss is inappropriate. This type of thing obviously would never fly on a gameshow in today’s world. Bill Cosby catching Kids Say The Darnedest Things was cute, but this makes me cringe.

out-magazine-power-50-2010

Out Magazine has compile their 4th Annual “Power 50″ list – this one for 2010. What does “Power” mean in this list you ask? Well as they put it: “The richest, most influential, most feared gays and lesbians in the country [United States].” A little vague, but these are the criteria they look at:

  • Power to influence cultural & social attitudes for the better
  • Political clout
  • Individual wealth
  • Media profile
  • There are some new additions to the list (Adam Lambert) and some people subtracted (Rosie O’Donnell). Of the fifty, the top ten are listed below (along with what the magazine wrote about each, justifying their position on the list).
