One of the coolest days my “wife” Anna and I had was the day we spent networking and doing some interviews. I was very lucky enough to get to go to the World Of Wonder offices. Now for many it might not be THAT important, but for me it was a very special day. I LOVE World of Wonder. I have been a fan of their’s for years. They have in my opinion the best blog on the internet (aside from Homorazzi, of course) the WOW report, they are the creators and producers of RuPaul’s Drag Race and Drag U, and are also the brains behind some of the best movies and documentaries and reality shows out there. Yes this was a big day for me.
To say that I was nervous was a bit of an understatement, but it wasn’t a bad nervous. As Anna and I parked our car and met up with Pete I was getting juiced. We walked onto the main floor and I started to see all my favourite bloggers (James St. James, Stephan Saban) and photos and posters of all the WOWlebrities on the walls. Our first assignment was to look through their new book The World according to Wonder which was a 21 year history of the production company. So Peter sat us down as a desk (which we later found out was RuPaul’s desk, NO BIG DEAL!!!) and we went through the book. It was incredible, everyone is in it. Seriously like everyone. From the biggest stars to the in house staff, everyone. Funny story, as we were reading I heard JAMES ST JAMES doing a Celebrity receptionist of the Day and it was The Beekman Boys, but I was too scared to even peak around the corner! Totally regret it.
A new episode of Homorazzi has been airing this week on OUTtv, but in case you’ve missed it or you don’t live in Canada, we’ve got it here for you to check out, witch cast members (from left to right) Tommy, Nic, Patrick, and Adam. We’ve also included our New Year’s Special, which aired on New Year’s Eve as well.
As you may recall, Nic was away in Hawaii for our last episode as well as for the New Year’s Eve special. In our newest episode, he may have been wishing he was still there because Adam seemed to be on his case the whole episode, catching Nic off guard by calling him out on some things that had recently happened (allegedly) in his personal life. Nic was not happy and ironically, this all went down while discussing the new Les Miserables film.
The panel talks about what they think about Ke$ha‘s new album, The Hobbit, This Is 40, the Gossip Girl finale and more. They also talk about how much they love the hilarious new web series, Willam’s Beatdown.
If you’re an avid reader of the site, you might’ve noticed there was a shortage of articles Sunday. Reason being was, we were all busy having our Christmas staff party. Given everyone’s busy schedules this time of year, it’s almost next to impossible to find a date that works for everyone. Surprisingly, all but three of us were able to make it yesterday. That’s a pretty amazing feat considering our busy lives and Alex, Kevin and Topher not currently living in the same city as the most of us. Check out the pic above. The only people missing from the pic are Nic (his BF’s sis was in town), Stephen (was there earlier but had to leave for another engagement) and Alex (LA) and Kevin (Toronto).
It was great to have so many of us together to laugh, catch up and reminisce about the early days of the site. Not to sound super cheesy, but there’s this amazing energy among all of us when we’re all in the same room. With our recent accomplishments, it was nice to sit back and relax for one night and pat each other on the back.
In between all the laughs and drinks, we decided to have a gingerbread contest. We split up into two different teams determined by names out of the hat. Team 1 (my team) won the right to pick either the house or the train. We opted for the train. Each team was given only 30 minutes to build, decorate, and come up with a theme for their creation. Now, we need your help to decide which team pulled it off better. Cast your votes so we can declare a winner and give one team bragging rights over the other.
THANKS again to all of you for making Homorazzi.com such a success in a short period of time. We have the best readers on the internet for sure.
GIRL OH SHIT LOOK THE MAYANS ARE HERE!
I CANNOT! Let me set this up for you, I’m not a big fan of parodies. Half the time they are awful and the other half of the time they are REALLY awful. It’s only rarely do you get a really clever parody.
Peppermint’s parody of Azealia Banks’ “212” is probably my favorite parody of the entire year, and how fitting that it comes at the end of the year right? Peppermint is NYC drag ROYALTY and in this parody she pretty much hits all the hilarious cliche’s of the end of the year, but it’s not until 1:54 min mark when she kicks in that HILARIOUS CHORUS that had me SCREAMING at the top of my lungs! It is SO FUNNY! Trust you have to watch it, Peppermint is definitely one to watch for the next year if she keep pumping out stuff like this.
Take a look at the video, trust me you won’t be disappointed!
I always say we find out who the REAL stars are after the show. Who has the most commercial appeal, who is going to be seen everywhere and who gets cast in legit music videos.
RuPaul’s Drag Race LEGEND and my GIRL, the superstar that is RAVEN is the star of the new music “Feed Me Diamonds” by MNDR. When I was with her in Seattle, she kept going on about MNDR and how she was such a big fan so I’m sure this is something very special for her.
The video takes us on the journey of what it takes to transform into Raven from makeup, hair, contacts, padding and outfit. The video is flawless and the song is even better! Make sure you pick it up on iTunes HERE. Watch the video below!
I always have a soft spot for the teenage Avenger stories. The Young Avengers (which I will review later) is my favourite Avengers storyline, so when I got Avengers Academy from MARVEL, I couldn’t wait to get to it.
Semester 2 starts up with the former students (Finesse, Reptil, Hazmat, Mettle and Striker) fear that with the arrival of Captain America and some of the Avengers, they are going to be sent away from the academy because of some of the events that happened prior to this storyline. After Mettle punches out Luke Cage, Cap and Dr. Pym assure that even with the arrival of the new students they are absolutely not going anywhere. One of the new students is HYBRID (obviously in disguise) and evil villain telepath that needs to feed on students energy to survive. But how is he getting the energy?
Reptil, one of the original students has been taken over by his future self. Future Reptil came back to make sure some events happen so that the timeline can end up how it’s supposed to. Marvel loves to play with the timeline so that they can have an aswer for everything, it’s genius but can be quite confusing at times. The future Reptil is trying to save is one where he and Finesse get together and have a child, but that can only happen is Hybrid kills some of the students, morbid right?
This week, a new episode of Homorazzi aired on OUTtv (Episode 9 to be exact) and in case you missed it, we’ve got the full episode for you to check out below. Since Nic (one of our usual panelists) was away vacationing in Hawaii (stay tuned for coverage on that), Blue from OUTtv join in as a special guest!
As usual, the panel started off by tackling some of the latest Gossip and the most heated discussion took place on the topic of Rihanna & Chris Brown seemingly back in a relationship. The conversation then transitioned to Britney Spears & will.i.am‘s new “Scream & Shout” music video as well as comments on how she’s been doing on The X-Factor as a judge. Also discussed was Tegan & Sara‘s new “Closer” music video and we’d like to clarify that the Canadian indie rock duo are indeed both lesbians and twin sisters (despite some of the confusion discussed in the episode below – LOL).
In closing, they talk about the recent viral YouTube videos that started with “Gay Men Will Marry Your Girlfriends,” and a new gay British series worth checking out. Check out the episode below!
HA! Don’t you just LOVE the name of new column. I TOTALLY stole it from Austin Powers and it’s totally fitting don’t you think? So here’s the scoop, I have gotten some really great stuff from the people at MARVEL COMICS. Obviously it’s going to focus more on the gay and lezzy types of story lines (But I will read anything *wink*) to fit in with the content of our homolicious website here so here goes the first one…NORTHSTAR!
Northstar, as any true nerd knows was one of the first openly gay superheroes ever, and he’s Canadian so that’s a double bonus. MARVEL made a huge announcement this year when they said that Northstar was going to be marrying his partner Kyle in the first ever Gay Superhero wedding, this collected edition gives us the run down of how they got engaged and finally the wedding.
