People who have been single for a long time often get a lot of slack from friends and family members about it. In this new vide by Funny or Die, several singles talk about these problems but give you hope in saying that “It Gets Better“.
In the video, the singles explain that name calling is one of things they have to deal with. Some of them include: “Third Wheel,” “Slut Butt,” “Lake Flacid,” and “Weird F*cking Single Guy“. LOL. But these folks are here to tell you that it does get better and that there are several benefits to being single. Having been single for a little over six months now, I have to agree and 2013 has been one of the best years of my life… but that’s a whole separate article.
Enjoy the hilarious video below and remember single people, “It Gets Better”.
With a new season of NHL hockey fast approaching, this week’s Sports Stud is a Canadian hockey player who plays for and is captain of the Chicago Blackhawks. His name is Jonathan Toews, he’s 25-years-old, 6’2″ and originally from Winnipeg, Manitoba. He won Stanley Cup in 2010 along with the Conn Smythe Trophy for the playoff MVP. After winning the Cup, Toews passed Peter Forsberg as the youngest player to join the Triple Gold Club. He won the Stanley Cup again in 2013. He also competed with Team Canada in the 2010 Olympics where he was named Best Forward for the tournament and where, as you know, Canada won the Gold Medal. His salary in 2012 was $6 million USD. Back in 2010 when Toews brought the Stanley Cup back to his home town of Winnipeg, the province of Manitoba announced that they would be naming a northern lake after Toews in honour of his success. It’s located 150 km north of Flin Flon and is named Toews Lake.
With the Socci 2014 Winter Olympics coming around the corner, Toews says has been keeping informed about the controversial anti-gay laws in Russia and the potential boycott of the games. Toews told TSN, “I don’t think they’re buying themselves any friends [with the laws] by any means, and I think, obviously, a lot of people are disappointed by the attitude they’ve had in Russia,” says Toews. “I still think it’s important to go there and represent your country. You don’t have to necessarily believe all the laws that they’ve instilled in Russia right, so I definitely don’t stand behind it.” Toews hopes that fans and athletes alike can find other ways to speak their minds and voice their displeasure outside of boycotting. “I’m sure that there a lot of other ways that people can express their disagreement with the anti-gay laws in Russia right now and there will be ways to do that,” said Toews. “I’m open to that, but I don’t think that not going to the Games is the solution because it’s a disappointment for everyone else.”
Bonjour, Monsieur Gourcuff! For this week’s Sports Stud, I decided to feature French soccer player Yoann Miguel Gourcuff. A few years ago back in 2010, I featured him as a World Cup Hottie Of The Day but feel that he’s definitely worthy of a new post. As previously mentioned, his mom was a basketball player, his older brother (Erwan) is a competitive swimmer & cyclist, and his dad was a former footballer who played for several clubs/countries – thus, he followed in his papa’s footsteps.
The 27-year-old mainly plays midfield (which is what I play mostly – requires A LOT of running) but sometimes plays striker. He currently plays for French club Olympique Lyonnais.
Back in 2008, France Gay magazine Têtu named him “Bomb of the Month.” The gay mag referred to his “doe eyes, rebellious locks, and tapering thighs. He had succeeded Cristiano Ronaldo for this title in Têtu. Check out some photos of Gourcuff below!
For this week’s Sport Stud, I decided to highlight another sexy Canadian NHL Hockey Player. Joffrey Lupul plays as alternate captain of the Toronto Maple Leafs and plays left wing. Other teams he has played on include Anaheim Ducks, Edmonton Oilers, and the Philadelphia Flyers.
Last year, Lupul was nominated for the Masterton Trophy after he put up 67 points in 66 games after recovering from back surgery and a blood infection. Outside of Hockey, Lupul enjoys playing guitar and dresses like a million bucks. Seriously, he’s a stud on and off the ice.
Lupul is incredibly handsome and in amazing shape. In fact, he was included in this year’s Naked Issue of ESPN’s Bodies We Want. I’ve included the ice-melting photos from that shoot below.
Miley Cyrus has just debuted a new single called “Wrecking Ball” and we’ve got your first listen below. The track was produced by Dr. Luke, who is apparently one of the new American Idol judges this upcoming season. Miley continues to be unpredictable with her upcoming Bangerz album because this new song is nothing like her summer hit “We Can’t Stop“.
In the chorus Miley belts out, “I came in like a wrecking ball! / I never hit so hard in love! / All I wanted was to break your walls.” Miley, who looks like she’s posing for the Miami Vice series on the album cover for Bangerz, really shows of her vocal abilities in this one as she sings of regret for a relationship gone wrong. In one of the verses, she sings “I never meant to start a war / I just wanted you to let me in / And instead of using force / I guess I should have let you in.”
Listen to the new track below and share your thoughts in the comments.
With Justin Timberlake reuniting with his former N’Sync bandmates (Lance Bass, JC Chasez, Joey Fatone, and Chris Kirkpatrick) for the 2013 MTV VMAs, it’s the perfect time to take a look back at the delicious boy band pop goodness that made them blow up all around the world.
I still remember the first time I came across N’Sync in 1999/2000. It was actually a commercial for their hit single, “I Want You Back” and how it was available at Walmart – LOL. As the boyband grew in popularity, it became quickly apparent that Justin was the lead and towards the end, the other guys became backup singers à la Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland of Destiny’s Child. Shortly thereafter, JT went solo with his debut single, “Like I Love You” and N’Sync went “Bye, Bye, Bye“. JT later left the music industry to pursue acting and other interests and just this past year treated us once again to his music.
I’ve put together a list of my favorite top 10 songs and music videos from N’Sync below and I’ve also included a poll. Take a trip down memory lane and check them out. The ordering may differ from the way you’d have done it yourself, but my list is based on what videos I liked the best and what songs I still to this day enjoy singing along to when in the mood for some old school boy band pop. Enjoy!
A couple days ago, Havana Brown debuted a hot new single called “Flashing Lights” from her upcoming debut studio album. Back in June, the Australian artist had released a music video for a catchy dance track called “Spread A Little Love“. After listening to both tracks, I’m thinking “Flashing Lights” will be the stronger single – especially with some good remixes already in circulation.
The song isn’t as club heavy and has a much lighter, disco feel to it when compared to “Spread A Little Love” and her “We Run The Night” and “Big Banana” hits. It actually has a Kylie Minogue feel to it and I’m digging it. In the chorus, Brown sings, “In the flashing lights / Looking for some love tonight / You know I love the way you lie / I wanna do it and do it / and do it again.”
The lyric video debuted at the same time as the song itself, but unfortunately it’s not available to be viewed in all countries. With that, I decided to also include an awesome Extended Remix by the talented Dave Audé below. Enjoy!
Although many of you would like to play doctor with Zac Efron, this is not that kind of film. Continuing his trend of delving into more “serious” feature films, Zac Efron is playing the role of Jim Carrico, the first doctor to examine President John F. Kennedy after he was shot. The film is called Parkland and also stars Marcia Gay Harden, Tom Welling, Billy Bob Thornton, Colin Hanks, Paul Giamatti, Ron Livingston and more.
Parkland is described as “a recounting of the chaotic events that occurred at Dallas’ Parkland Hospital on the day U.S. President John F. Kennedy was assassinated.” The film hits theatres starting September 20, 2013 to coincide with the upcoming 50th anniversary of JFK’s assassination.
Check out the first trailer for the film below.
