A few weeks ago I posted about Peter Rauhofer and his diagnosis with brain cancer. It is with an incredibly heavy heart that I have to ever out readers know that Peter has indeed left us today.
“Today the music industry has lost one of it’s true heroes.
With a heavy heart I must now report that Peter Rauhofer has lost his battle with brain cancer.
He passed quietly today and is survived by his mother, Helga, who resides in Austria.
She will transport Peter back home to his final resting place there, but to all that knew Peter, his heart will always be in New York City.
It makes me sad, not only that I have lost a friend, but that the world has lost an amazing talent and that future generations will never get to understand the magic that Peter created night after night all over the world.
He is gone too soon but we will always have the vast body of music that Peter left for us.
Through his music, Peter will live forever. The brightest stars always burn out too soon. Peter, you were loved and you will be terribly missed. Goodbye my friend. Please rest in peace knowing that you have brought so much joy to so many of us. I ask that his true fans keep his legacy alive by sharing his music with anyone who may not have had the opportunity to experience it for themselves.” – Facebook Page
I don’t even know what to say or how to react. I am so sad hearing this not just as a fan but as someone who has had the honor of working with him. Peter was the only DJ I thought was capable of resurrecting a defunct party. The Rapture brand that myself and my partner Anna took over was famously cancelled the year previous and it was a huge risk to take it over. But with the help of Peter it was brought back better than ever to it’s full glory. It was the start of my career and I will never forget it. He is a legend and we are lucky enough to have a full library of memories he has left us with.
Here are some of my absolute favorites, Mariah Carey is actually incredibly hard to listen to but it is one of the best.
Well it’s here. After months of competition, a couple weeks of reruns and recaps, endless drama and some of the best/worst drag I’ve seen on tv we have a winner for the 5th season of RuPaul’s Drag Race. Before we get to the winner let’s recap a bit or the reunion shall we?
As is tradition we have a reunion episode where we get one last moment to see our Season 5 queens on the tube before they disappear into reality TV history (except for Alyssa, who is getting her own spinoff ALLEGEDLY!). I have to tell you I actually completely forgot that half of those queens were even on the show. But I guess that’s what happens when you get eliminated at the beginning.
Here they are again!
The Drag supergroup of Detox, Willam and Vicky Vox (HEY GIRL!) also known as DWV has released their 3rd video, a parody of Robyn’s Dancing on my Own called “Silicone“! This time around Detox takes the lead because well she is full of silicone, and also I know that she’s a huge fan of Robyn. She performs Robyn quite a bit so I’m not surprised she took the lead on this one.
It’s bit of a slower jam but it is still just as hilarious as all the ones previous. What do you guys think?
Take a listen below and sound off in the comments. Don’t forget to follow me on twitter @TommyD.
PS – DRAG RACE FINALE TONIGHT…so excited.
We have started our search for the newest addition to our panel! Our first guest co host is a young chad named Henry.
Henry was actually one of the first people to apply and his application had me in stitches. He quoted Mean Girl, Bridesmaids & Pitch Perfect (All Homorazzi staples).
In this episode after we introduce Henry, we talk about the mess that is Amanda Bynes & the engagement of two gals that I had no idea were even dating! In music we talk about Demi Lovato and one of Patrick’s favorite up and comers.
Movies we hit on Scary Movie 5 and one of the most anticipated movies on our list, The Purge!
Check out the entire episode below and stay tuned for who we’ve got on the panel next week.
Iron Man 3 is upon us people! After last years insanely huge MEGA blockbuster The Avengers this is the first movie we’ve got after the events in New York. IM3 also launches into Phase 2 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
So what can you expect from this movie? I know for myself I watched the trailers and I kind of didn’t know what it was about. Wikipedia wasn’t really any help either so I actually went into this movie kind of blind, and I left completely bewildered. Whatever you think you know about the plot is probably wrong. Whatever you think you know about what the villain is about, and who the big hero is, and what the repercussions are from New York you might as well forget because this movie was so perfectly crafted and thought out that the only thing you can do is just go with the flow and enjoy it.
The latest Ring My Bell from World of Wonder features Season 2 RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant, and Drag U professor Morgan McMichaels. Morgan is one of the fiercest queens I have seen perform from that show, and she’s pretty hysterical.
My favorite part of this episode is when she gets asked the sausage for fingers question…like WHAT?!?
Enjoy Morgan below guys and remember they have a new episode of RMB every Thursday!
Say what you will about this queen, she was fierce on Season 5 of RuPaul’s Drag Race. I loved her from the second I saw her promo and I will love her until the end of time. Miss Roxxxy Andrews was recently in Vancouver for the hottest Thursday night in town LIBERACE and natually I got to chat with her before she went on stage.
What I will tell you about Roxxxy is that she is incredibly sweet. Sure we had some GREAT sass moments, but she really took the time to spend time with us here and get to know everyone. Hopefully people will let the reality TV drama disappear because Roxxxy is incredible. Check out the interview below!
I’m doing ANOTHER World Of Wonder post? God it’s like they are paying me (they aren’t, but I’m still totally putting in my application for their Canadian correspondent).
In this latest post about my current obsessions, we are going to take a look at the newest weekly video by my favorite blogger on the planet James ST James doing his TRANSFORMATIONS! So James ST James is bored, he needs a new look and a new vibe. He has asked his friends and celebrities who do faces to give him a brand new face. The only rule is, there are no rules. It’s been going on for about a month now and I am going to post them all, but my personal favorite right now is done by Gloria Shuri Nava who is famous for doing the Chola Makeover.
They update every Tuesday and I will post the month wrap up with all the ones that were released. Make sure you follow James ST James on twitter (@JSJDarling) and as always find me on twitter @TommyD! Love your work!
