Every few days we’re going to highlight one of the cast members so you can get to know them a bit better. We decided to start of with Saleem for two reasons. 1. He celebrated his birthday with a huge Frat themed party this past weekend and 2. He’s the only one without a write-up in the Cast Page. Stay tuned for pictures and videos from the Frat themed event.

This past weekend we celebrated Homorazzi’s own Saleem’s birthday along with our good friend DVD’s as well! The theme was “Frat Pad”, so us frat boys and girls dressed accordingly- and scantily where possible! Hot boys, jello shots, beer bongs, and sexy tunes from DJ Landon James: it was a riot. The party started around 8pm, and I’d say it was pumpin’ ’til around 3am… and in Kits to boot! Some made it out to the bar after, but I was not one of them- a little too “dizzy” by the end of the night. I blame Bill Cosby. (Editor’s Note: we at Homorrazi do realize that Bill Cosby is a Jell-O PUDDING sponsor, but couldn’t take this joke away from Patrick)!
It was an amazing chance to celebrate with so many people we either didn’t already know or don’t get to see very often, and receive so many overwhelming compliments and support for Homorazzi.com- we’re thrilled about such a positive response!
18+ only! Check out the video recap of the night:
I had written a post right before this one, and it was pretty intense. I was writing it in pure anger, and I let it sit for a while and then I deleted it. It was a good vent, but I don’t think I wanted that post to represent my true feelings about this situation.
The situation I’m referring to is one which we have been keeping up to date with here at Homorazzi. Last week, someone had been sucker punched in the head at the Fountainhead, and was taken to hospital in critical condition. He then fell into a coma, and is not expected to recover.
Before I found out he lost his life, my head was spinning into another dimension. I just kept remembering other events this past year, Jordan Smith, Chad Wilkinson the countless other times. Then I kept remember when I was managing at The Majestic/Pulse Nightclub that the police would come and let me know that there has to now be a police presence on the street, and now this.
To follow up to my original post about the fight that broke out at the Fountainhead Pub on Davie Street last Friday night, the following information is quoted from the front cover article of the Vancouver 24Hours, for March 17, 2009;
“…62-year-old Ritchie Dowie [was] sucker punched in the head.”
Dowie’s friend Lindsay Wincherauck is quoted as a key witness to the event, and was the voice behind the interview printed by 24Hours. His descriptions of the actual event are quite graphic, alluding to the event being more severe than I believe most bystanders originally expected, “The blow knocked Dowie to the ground, smashing his head on the tiled floor and sending him into a coma.”
The article continues with Wincherauck confronting the assailant, questioning him, “I asked him why he did it and he said ‘because he’s a fag. He deserved it, he touched me.’”
Due to this stated, and the overall nature of the events the VPD spokesperson Const. Jana McGuinness has stated that police investigators are still looking into the acts of violence being a possible hate crime. The assailant, Shawn Woodward, 35 has currently been charged with aggravated assault.
So in the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day, and since I’m Patrick and I’m also a saint, I thought I’d share a Homorazzi themed limerick with you today.
A site where the homos are talking,
With content that seems a bit shocking,
They write what they think
Tainting everything pink,
Their private lives here for the mocking.
Don’t forget to wear green or you get pinched in the bootay!
Here’s another limerick submitted by Dan’s friend Jenny.
May your glass be ever full.
May the roof over your head be always strong.
And may you be in heaven half an hour
before the devil knows you’re dead.
If you have any others, post them as comments.

Our resident Drag Queen worrrrrrrrks it. Take Note.

I don’t normally read 24 or METRO…you know those news gazettes they peddle on the streets like crack cocaine. Anyway an article on the front page caught my eye, being a dog owner and having the pet peeve on irresponsible dog owners that don’t pick up their dog doo doo. We have all stepped on shit at one point in our lives…or several for that matter, even dog owners have. So I don’t get what goes on in these people’s heads thinking they don’t have to pick up their dog shit. If you can’t do the simple task of picking up after your dog then you shouldn’t have a pet….plain and simple! These stupid Yaletown girls with their tiny little dogs and Ed Hardy matching hoody and pants, manicured nails & spray tanned bitches need to get over themselves and start picking up after their pets.
Here’s the article from 24Hours.ca:
Since today is Friday the 13th (The second of the year, we are having another one in November), I’ve decided to do things against the grain. We always post about things we enjoy, and things we love, but I’m going to post somethings that I absolutely can’t fucking STAND! It’s a neverending list really, but these are the ones that are annoying me today!
You might not agree with it, you might not like it, but I am the one writing so let me vent! Khay?
Here they are in absolutely no particular order
