Well apparently September 4th was the day of the KAI KAI! If you don’t know what a Kai Kai is…well we’ll get to that in a second.
After the hugely successful gay anthem of 2012 “Let’s Have a Kiki” was released, everyone and their dog has done a cover or a parody of it. I myself am not really one for parodies but after I heard/saw these two I starting to rethink my position on them. The first is done by parody legend Lady Bunny who stars on RuPaul’s Drag U and is the founder of Wigstock.
The second, and my favorite parody probably ever features Drag Race star Willam and one of my absolutely all time FAVORITE queens Rhea Litre. Seriously, if you don’t know Rhea you need to get into it #aweyeah. I have no idea WHY she hasn’t cast on Drag Race yet but this bitch is TALENTED! The pairing of Willam and Rhea is pretty genius I must say. Also featured in this video is Chi Chi Larue and I BELIEVE Hector Xtravaganza…I’m almost 100% certain. Its incredible and definitely my favourite parody of the song.
BUT WHAT IS A KAI KAI you’re still asking…well I’ll let the videos show you. ENJOY!
As you may or may not know, we just had gay pride here in Vancouver a couple weekends ago and were treated to some amazing weather and incredible parties. Some of these parties were put on by our own Tommy who run TFD Presents and we’ve got two pretty fantastic video montages from the events to share with you. It’s “Holy hotness, Batman!” Literally. Although I didn’t make it to these particular events this year, I thoroughly enjoyed the following videos and I’m certain you will too.
The first video is from “Heatwave,” where Tommy had his annual pool party at the Westin Hotel with none other than Jujubee from RuPaul’s Drag Race as the headline performer. On top of the hot guys and bootylicious bums (ie. the one that barly fits in the picture above), Jujubee took the party to another level when her Fergilicious-ness hit the pool deck.
The second video is from the “Gotham City” themed Rapture Party. The costumes, lighting, and performances were all out and all of your favorite heroes & villains were there. As with the first, this video is amazing and set to a remix of Rihanna’s “Where Have You Been“. Enjoy both videos below and be sure to join in the fun next year!
THE BLACK LIGHT TEASER!
OMG I am so FREAKING excited for this “All Stars” mini season to happen I can’t even tell you. Can you believe we’ve had 4 years of Drag Race already? OK so who do you recognize? We know Pandora Boxx is on there but do I also see….
I’m missing some I know, but I KNOW these queens are on there. Who do you recognize? Watch the video and leave your thoughts and/or predictions in the comments!
It happened, I saw an advance screening of TDKR and I loved it. I’m going to get a few things out of the way right away because everyone is asking me the same questions. Once I get that out of the way I’m going to give you the juice. I will try to keep this as spoiler free as I can as well.
So I got that out of the way, now I’m going to elaborate on this brilliant piece of cinema. First of all this is not The Dark Knight. It’s not even CLOSE to TDK, and if you go into this movie constantly comparing it to TDK you will not enjoy it I promise you that. Do you remember in Scream 3 when Randy gave the rules of the trilogy? Something from past is gonna come bite you in that ass, the body count is WAY bigger etc. etc., all of that applies to this trilogy perfectly.
“I’m always a bit cautious when I go and see a musical based on a movie”. That was from my friend and musical theatre guru Iona Whipp’s main concerns as we were going into see Mary Poppins last night at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre. I had even bigger concerns because I am literally obsessed with Mary Poppins, and Julie Andrews is a goddess. But I had to shelf my love of the film before I sat down in my seat and enjoy the live production for what it was.
And it was definitely something.
I don’t really think I need to recap the story of Mary Poppins do I? Magical nanny comes into sad household and changes the lives of the children and parents. Essentially that’s it right? That’s the skeleton of this story with so much ooey gooeygoodness it almost gave me a toothache. I think I need to start somewhere because I’m getting all confused. Let’s start with the cast yeah? Mary Poppins was played by Rachelle Wallace and she does a great job. I think one of her biggest strengths was that she let everyone else shine. It’s actually quite interesting to watch. Don’t forget Mary Poppins is practically perfect in every way so the story, even though it is named after her, is not about her. She’s practically perfect, what more do you need?

BRAVE is the latest Disney/Pixar baby that came out this week and like all their other movies it promised to be an incredible tale with an amazing heroine at the helm of a family picture. Were they right?
I didn’t know much about this movie before it came out other than the heroine Princess Merida had a WICKED head of red hair and is proficient with a boy and arrow. The previews really didn’t give you much information about the film so going into it I was incredibly curious as to what it was about.
BRAVE is the story of a Scottish royal family in the 10thish century. Their first born Merida is princess and instead of growing up as her mother wishes (to be proper and act like a princess should act) Merida has a fondness for hunting, archery, riding horses and getting into mischief. As she gets older she grows even more independent even though it is time for her to choose a suitor from one of the three other clans. For the right suitor to be chosen they had to compete in a tournament, she of course chose archery because she had a plan. She wanted to compete for her own hand. It is here where the conflict arises with her mother who is the pillar of tradition in the family. After the tournament her and her mother have a huge blowup and it is here that Merida finds the house of a witch. She told the witch she wants to change her mother, and change her life.
In this most recent episode that aired this past Tuesday night, Patrick, Tommy, Adam and Nic (having returned from his Grindr leave) talk about the latest in Travolta gossip, Snow White and it’s trailer hype, plus TV’s best in spring finales.
The episode starts off with gossip, chatting about a few stories involving John Travolta and Justin Bieber. Transitioning into the late Donna Summer, Tommy talks about her relationship with the gay community and his thoughts on things that happened in the past.
The panel also chats a lot about the recent TV finales and which ones were their faves. Tommy confesses that he literally watched one of the finales over and over, thirty times. Find out what show it was in the episode below. Enjoy!
