In honor of Mother’s Day, some of the Homorazzi cast (past and present) decided to proclaim their love to their respective mothers on the website. We hope you enjoy this post which was originally published when the site first launched.

mom-dan

I love my Mom, and just recently we’ve developed a relationship of being less Mother/Son and more friends who can share a good laugh and story over a drink or two. While growing up, I never thought that I would come to a place where I actually WANTED to hang out with my parents, but that day came knocking on my door a few years back after I invited them to my 23rd birthday party and they actually showed!

It dawned on my that my Mom is a pretty rad woman who cares a lot about her family and who’s sole goal in life is to make sure her children and grandchildren have everything in the world they could possibly want, even before her own needs. For this, I take my hat off to her, and say I love you with all my heart.

She hasn’t had the easiest life, but I would like to think that the few beers we shared in sun are well remembered and will keep her smiling!

Thanks for everything Momma, I love you!

Merry Christmas From Homorazzi

In: Behind The Cast, Donovan

We’re taking the day off today, so we decided to repost some of our favorite Christmas-themed posts from this and previous years.
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE.

And just like that, after all the build-up and countless hours spent shopping, we’ve reached Christmas. Hope you’re all having a MERRY CHRISTMAS” and enjoying time with all your loved ones. For those who aren’t celebrating this holiday, I wish you joy on this day as well.

I would like to take this opportunity to say “THANKS” to all our loyal readers- new and old- for all your support. Without the love you’ve shown us since we’ve launched, we would’ve folded by now. While I’m at it, Patrick and I would also like to publicly thank all the Homorazzi.com writers (Adam, Alex, Brian, Dan, Dave, Jonny, Kevin, Matt, Nic, Redd, Rich, Saleem, Stephen, Tommy and Topher) for their amazing contributions. Shout-outs also go out to previous cast members, Jake, Jamie, and Landon for their help when we first launched the site.

Just like Halloween, I took pictures of the cast members for a holiday themed photo shoot. With the holidays being so hectic, I was only able to take pictures from half the cast members. Ironically enough, one of the cast members who don’t have a Christmas picture is yours truly. The others are Patrick (weird, right), Brian (yeah I live with him…lol), Dave, Saleem, Nic and Topher. But rather than focusing on the glass being half-empty, check out the pictures I took of those who were able to make it.

We’re taking the day off today, so we decided to repost some of our favorite Christmas-themed posts from this and previous years.
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE.

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.

My 5 Favorite Christmas Films

In: Behind The Cast, Movies, Tyrell

We’re taking the day off today, so we decided to repost some of our favorite Christmas-themed posts from this and previous years.
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE.

Today is Christmas Eve and I couldn’t be more excited to celebrate the holidays. This year I won’t be enjoying it with my family but instead, partaking in the Christmas festivities with Patrick and his family: a first for us. Last year we spent time with my family back in Manitoba so we thought it only be fair that we both head up to Northern BC this time around.

Even though I spending Christmas with a new family and making new traditions, it doesn’t stop me from keeping a few old ones from yesteryear alive. In the spirit of that, I’d thought I’d share with you five of my favorite Christmas movies that I enjoy watching over the holiday break.

A few of these films have a very special meaning to me and bring back childhood memories while others just literally bring out the kid in me. In fact, Christmas day as a whole sees me acting like a grown-up, five-year-old. Enjoy my list of holiday movies below and please, share your favorites and family traditions in the comment section below. Merry Christmas!

AIDS Walk OKC group

We are 6 weeks into The Random Acts Of Kindness Tour, better known as #GetRAOKT, and it’s already been the adventure of a life time. For those of you who don’t know, I’m currently on a year long trip with my friend Jessica around North America doing Volunteer work and Random Acts Of Kindness. We left on September 2nd after doing a 6am interview on CBC Radio 1′s “The Early Edition.” Since then we have been on the road doing our part to try and make a difference.

So far we have been to Calgary, Seattle, Oklahoma City, Boulder, Denver and now reside in Nashville thanks to Greyhound! They’ve been getting us around this massive piece of land and it’s been really amazing to see all the different areas we wouldn’t be able to see if we flew. All along the way we have met incredibly inspiring people doing their part to help out in their communities. A few of our biggest events to date have been volunteering with the AIDS Walk in Oklahoma City and helping flood victims in Boulder after they experienced devastating floods.

Volunteering in Boulder

As our trip continues we’re always looking to meet and work with new people. Our hosts in Nashville found us on the website couchsurfing.org and read our story. He asked us if we would like to come and volunteer at the HOPE Family Health centre as part of our adventure and of course we said yes! Now we are having the best experience here and all because someone reached out to us and asked if we’d like to help out. We have the rough outline of our trip set out if you’d like to see when we might be in your area. If you work for an organization or simply want to host two crazy Canadians on an epic adventure we’d love to hear from you!

Most recently we we’re interviewed by Fiona Forbes on The Rush in Vancouver because they heard our story and thought what we are doing was awesome. We never imagined something like that would happen when we started this trip. We simply wanted to go out into the world and do something that we thought would make even a little difference. Being on the road constantly can be very draining but with what we’re doing I think it’s 100% worth it.

We’ve been making videos all along the way and posting them to YouTube so people can keep up to date on where we are and what we’re doing. We’d love for you to follow along and share your thoughts and ideas with us. Have you done any random acts of kindness lately? I think it’s a bit of a lost art in today’s world but if everyone did just one simple thing a day it could easily make a comeback. Maybe buy the next person in line their coffee or take some thank you cards to the workers of your local charity. There are a million ways you can help that won’t take up too much time or money.

Next up on the agenda is the Big Apple! It’s always been a dream of mine to go to New York City and now that it’s happening I’m beside myself with excitement! This whole trip has almost seemed like a dream, I find I need to keep pinching myself just to convince me it’s real. If you reside in the NYC area and have ideas or tips for Jessica and I please contact us and let us know! The best way is to email us at getraokt@gmail.com

If you want to see more photos of our adventures we Instagram like crazy! Just follow Calan_Travels and Jessicas_eyes to check them out.

How much do my friends HATE it when I leave a voice mail. I’m not joking, I get RAILED constantly by my closest friends who have no qualms informing me that short of their mother and grandparents, I am the only person in their lives still leaving voice mail. Am I alone in this?

Why the voice mail hate on? What’s wrong with leaving a funny message (which I almost always opt for by the way) to let a friend know you’re thinking about them and want them to hear the sincerity in your voice. In an age where mis-reading text messages is a five time daily occurrence, how can anyone be down on my attempt to bring clarity to a situation by clearly explaining and emoting what I want to communicate? While I’ll get into my reasons for vm’ing later, I just wanted to posit the basic and starting off question: What happened to the voice mail? What year was it exactly that this method of indicating to someone that you need to speak with them became antiquated and (apparently) annoying? I often get quoted: “Adam, I have call display, so I know you called and I’ll get back to you when I can.” Well smartypants, maybe I don’t want you to get back to me, and maybe I didn’t or couldn’t text, did you ever think about that? And, WHY ARE YOU YELLING AT ME? It’s just a voice mail! You may think I’m tending for my usual histrionics here, but this issue is no laughing (well, fine, it kind of is) matter with my group of friends as we constantly battle to voice mail or not to voice mail.

IT’S MAKEOVER TIME BITCH!

It has been 5 LONG years since the fan favorite web series the TRANNYFORCE have made any kind of appearance, and we are OVER it. Thankfully creator and filthy mastermind Angello Floresco has heard our prayers and the newest installment of the Trannyforce story has been released for your viewing pleasure!

If you don’t know the 10 year history of the TF, fear not. There is a quick 2 minute catch up at the beginning of the newest film. But here it is in a nutshell. 3 boys get possessed by 3 spirits of female super heroes from the planet Kirei. The guardians of Glamour, Fashion and Beauty. The three boys magically transform into Trixie, Milla and EvilLyn respectively to battle the evil forces from the dark dimension. It isn’t until present days 10 years after they first found their powers that they have finally met their match in the dark dimension’s evil ninja assassin ASSASSINA! The three warriors are killed (not spoiling it, it’s in the first scene)  and their spirits fly off to find new host bodies! The Trannyforce must live on, but can the new girls defeat Assassina before they to are killed too?

Starring Vancouver drag superstars Iona Whipp as the glamour fighter TRIXIE, Kristina Cash as the fashion fighter MILLA and Raye Sunshine as the beauty fighter EVILLYN, Trannyforce Xtreme makeover is the perfect comback. If you like Sailor Moon, SouthPark,  awful toilet humour and those old KungFu movies where the words don’t match the lips, then TRANNYFORCE is for you.

PS – They also got a flawless cameo by PANDORA BOXX!!!

Patrick, my friend and partner in crime with whom I founded Homorazzi.com with, has encountered a lot of change in 2013 thus far. After a breakup in early spring, Patrick decided to take a break from writing on the site full-time and focus on other areas of his life including family, fitness, friends and fun. He had been feeling that he lacked a work/life balance and fitness & nutrition seemed to no longer be incorporated into his lifestyle as it had been in the past. With that in mind, earlier in the year Patrick joined CrossFit to try something new with respect to his fitness and immediately loved it. We could all tell by the amount he posted about it on Facebook (haha). Outside of that change, he also found his birth mother and half brothers and sisters in May. He had only found out last year that he was adopted. A couple months ago, he met his birth mother for the first time in person and the meeting went very well.

Zoning in on the fitness aspect of his life, Patrick decided to mark the milestone of six months of progress from his new fitness and nutrition routine by taking part in a photo shoot with Mike Carter of Maplecarton Photography. The photos were picked up by DNA Magazine in Australia earlier this week and featured on their website here. Looks like all the hard work paid off! I’ve also included a before and after picture so you get a rough idea of where he started. Check out some of the photos from the shoot below.
