A couple months ago, I joined CrossFit 604here in Vancouver and it was the best thing I ever did. I can honestly say CrossFit is now my favorite fitness related activity that I’ve ever done. People have said to me, “Oh you’re part of the cult,” which is hilarious. The reason why it people think that is because people are so freaking excited about what they are doing and can accomplish. I now know first hand and in CrossFit I have pushed myself further physically than in any other fitness related activity I’ve ever done.

1. The Challenge

You know when you go to the gym and the odd time you leave and you think to yourself, “Man that was an amazing workout…” Well, that’s literally how I feel every morning I finish CrossFit. You push yourself further than you would at the gym and the workouts really push you to your limit… to the point where you realize that it’s a mind game. Your mind wants you to quit, but your body can keep going.

2. The Variety

Every day is different and you don’t have to worry about “chest day” or “legs day” and things like that which is what I hated about the gym. I would get bored of my routines so quickly. Prior to CrossFit, I was also doing elite bootcamps with WestCoast Fitness, and those were 10x better than going to the gym (for me) and actually incorporate some CrossFit into their workouts. There just came a point where I couldn’t do CrossFit and bootcamp or my body would die. If CrossFit doesn’t appeal to you and you want to go to a good bootcamp class a few times a week, I’d recommend West Coast Fitness (that is if you are in Vancouver of course).

Hello boys and girls. Hope you’re all doing well this fine festive day. Since Valentine’s Day is all about celebrating love and affection, I thought this would be a perfect day to profess our love to all our loyal readers (new and old). We would be nothing without you and appreciate each and everyone of you taking time out of your hectic days to visit us. Hope you all have a great Valentines Day. xoxo the Homorazzi boys.

So this year’s big trip has been decided and it will be Buenos Aires, Argentina. The 10-day trip has been booked for February. I haven’t really thought much about it until this week where the temperatures in Toronto have dropped to -20.

We booked three apartments in a building complex in the Palermo Hollywood area, a 2-bedroom and two 1-bedrooms. There are 8 people going on this trip and we are looking forward to taking in the scenery, culture, food & nightlife. While there, so far I have only done enough research to know that I want to see the Evita Museum and visit a winery.

Another year has already flown by and today we start a new one! In 2011, I decided to do a recap of my year through photos and I really enjoyed the process of reflecting on everything that I experienced over the year – so I decided to do it again this year. I noticed that Facebook implemented a feature that does just that this year as well – highlighting key moments from your year.

The funny thing is that I used to be the guy that barely ever took any pictures, but over the last several years, I’ve found that I take way more pictures – obviously social media has had a lot to do with this, as has Homorazzi. You’ll also notice some of my photos have filters and that’s because I used Instagram a lot more this year.

I’ve broken down my year month-by-month and included a little montage of pictures from that month along with a little description. Happy New Year, everyone!

Check out my month-by-month overview below…

Hey Homorazzi readers. I want to start off by saying thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the love and support you guys have given me in regards to my music. I am so fortunate to be able to write for such an amazing site with such great fans and I am grateful that a few of you have also reached out and embraced my passion for music. I’ve had a blast writing and recording new songs and performing them across Western Canada. Now, I need your help to bring my second EP to life.

I haven’t been doing professional pop music for very long per say but I have been a fan of music for as long as I can remember. My dad was an avid musician. In fact, some of my first pictures as a kid involve me being on stage with my dad, holding a microphone while he plays guitar. My late mother was also a piano teacher and singer so I think that my passion for music was something I was born with. My dad played a lot of live shows and watching that really made me thirsty for performing on stage.

To help my second EP a reality, I have enlisted the help of Pledge Music to ask for your pledges to help cover the costs of this new project. Pledging allows you to become apart of this unique and interactive experience. Each pledge amount (starting as low as $10) comes with incentives like CDs, T-Shirts, your name in the credits and more. As an added incentive, I have chosen my charity for this campaign to be Out in Schools. After my target is reached, 25% of the pledges onward will benefit this organization. To pledge, you can visit my page here. If you want to learn a little bit more about me and this exciting adventure, you can check out my pledge video below. Thank you once again for all your love and support. I am so grateful.

Earlier this week, I updated our press kit and reread our site bio. I realized I don’t talk about my personal life nearly as much as I promised in the write-up. With that in mind, I’ll make more of a concerted effort to change that. Starting this month, I’ll do a quick picture review of a few highlights from the previous month. Check out my inaugural monthly recap below.

Jonny

When Jonny came out of the bathroom, he scared the crap out of me. The blood is far more menacing in person. Trust me.

Today (October 11th) is ‘National Coming Out Day,” internationally observed civil awareness day for coming out and for discussion for those in the LGBT community. Even though the name says national, this day is officially recognized in Australia, Switzerland, Germany, Canada, New Zealand, Croatia, Poland, and the United Kingdom (on October 12th in the UK).

Earlier on in our Homorazzi experience, many of us each took the time to share our “coming out” story with you, giving you a little bit of insight as to our own backgrounds and experiences in the hope that you could relate, and for any of you in the closet, you may even be inspired to come out yourself. Each person went through their own journey in coming out. Some early on, some later in life, some went well and some had some bumps along the way. One cast member even came out only to discover that his sister was a lesbian! I’ve also included our cast “It Gets Better” video as well, in case you’ve missed it. Many of our coming out stories are discussed in our video. Stay tuned for more coming out stories from our writers that haven’t shared them yet (Feel free to send them over, guys)!

Happy “National Coming Out Day”! Feel free to check out our coming out experiences below.
