You don’t see Maybelline taking this approach to sell mascara. I guess they’re just born with it ;) Some companies though, need to rely on d-list celebrity peen to move inventory.

Benefit Cosmetics tapped a few hunky men including a couple of reality stars known for their huge packages to push their product. The women in the clip salivate on what you think is each guy’s healthy bulge, but in reality it’s what their stuffing in their crotches that have the ladies excited. That’s right, mascara apparently works great to pad your bulge if needed. Check out the clip below which features Jersey Shore‘s Vinny Guadagnino, Simon Rex (remember his porn video?) and other tasty looking men.

Well, another pride season has come and gone, which means the hot boys of summer who seemed to have leaped from the bushes all tanned and buff to populate the streets will slither back into the undergrowth. You nursed your hangover at your desk all week and wished life could go on being a Speedo pool party forever. And all over the city, testicles will be filling back out and producing normal levels of sperm, at least until this time next year.

Yes, no pride season is complete without the perennial steroid rant, brought to you this time by somebody who seriously had no clue until like three weeks ago that literally everyone was on the juice.

It began when I made an offhand joke to someone I had recently started dating about how it would be nice to put on more muscle with minimal effort but no ball shrinkage, backne or looking like an aubergine.

He responded cagily about not judging other people’s choices.

Are you defending steroid use to me?” I asked in disbelief.

Happy Left Hander’s Day

In: Donovan, Random Reads

Yesterday’s post about Middle Child’s Day proved surprisingly popular, I simply had to share another random holiday. August 13 is the day to celebrate left handed people. Now only if there’s a special day for left handed middle children :) I’m sure one probably exists. For those who have sinistrophobia (fear of left-handedness or things on the left side), today is probably the day you should stay indoors.

Approximately 10 percent of the population is left handed. Being in the minority, they’re often left out in the cold. Have you ever seen left-handed desks in schools? Imagine their frustration using right-handed scissors. With all that in mind, Left Hander’s Day was designated to promote consideration for such individuals and raise awareness. For random scientific facts about left handers, click here.

Happy National Middle Child’s Day

In: Donovan, Random Reads

There truly is a holiday for everything. For all you middle children out there, today is your special day. Let’s face it. The oldest (thank God I’m one) gets all the praise as the leader, while the youngest one gets the attention for being the baby. The middle child… nada, zip, zilch. With no special “role,” the middle kid often gets lost in the shuffle.

Probably the most well-known television character to suffer from middle child syndrome is Jan Brady. Remember her infamous quote, “Marcia, Marcia, Marcia.” For all you Jan Bradys out there, August 12 is your day to celebrate your birth order and get some recognition.

Are you a middle child? Who’s your favorite middle child television character? Sound off below.

When’s the last time you did something nice for someone randomly? Not for someone’s birthday or for someone you have a crush on, we’re talking completely random, like buying coffee for the person behind you at Starbucks.

“You can’t change the world in one day but you CAN change someone’s world.” That’s the motto for #GetRAOKT, (pronounced like Get ROCKED) which is an acronym for the “Random Acts Of Kindness Tour.” This September 1st Jessica Schafer and myself will be setting out on a year long adventure around North America with one goal in mind, perform as many random acts of kindness as we can and inspire a new generation of people to get involved in their communities whether it’s a small or large amount. It only makes sense since I’m the “Do-Good” one of the cast here at Homorazzi. We decided 3 months ago that it was time to make a change and do something that we felt would make a difference and thus #GetRAOKT was born and we’ve been saving ever since.

North America tends to be a place that easily gets lost in the “me” syndrome. Have you ever noticed how it makes you feel way better when focusing on the “we” instead of “me” by making someone’s day a little brighter? From volunteering at shelters, cleaning up after natural disasters and writing thank you letters for social workers to taking underprivileged families to a theme park for the day, we’re going to try and do it all. Couch surfing and car sharing every inch of the way. Speaking of which, if you’re interested in having 2 awesome house guests for a few days let us know! The trip itinerary along with more information can be found on FundMyTravel.com, a website dedicated to helping fund purposeful travel.

Vancouver Summer Party @ The Yacht Club

In: Donovan, Random Reads

Hey boys and girls in Vancity. If you don’t have any plans as of yet for Saturday, I wanted to share an event one of my friends is holding. Imagine a sea of people in whites and navies, and polo shirts! Intrigued?

Yacht Club is an event being held at The Ticket Kitchen & Bar and it promises to be a summer party to remember. Instead of the festivities beginning in the evening, the promoters are starting earlier to take advantage of the summer weather. For more info about the event, check out the official FB event.

I recently came across this hilarious series called “Lady Time” on Funny Or Die and I just had to share it with you. Their first video was actually uploaded quite a long time ago, but they’ve just come out with a follow up that totally made me laugh out loud.

The newest video is called “Lady Time – Bad Boys Edition” and it has this group of women enjoying some cocktails outside at a country club and they get to discussing how they have a thing for bad boys. One of the women starts talking about how she got burgled recently and now is super into the burglar himself.

Watch the hilarious video below. Actress Betsy Sodaro (pictured above left) definitely steals the show for me. Enjoy!

If you’ve ever lived in the San Francisco Bay Area or even visited the city, you’ll appreciate this video. Myself, I’ve spent plenty of time there, even spending entire summers during my childhood hanging with my cousins. As anyone familiar with San Francisco knows, it’s all about the fog. It could be a warm summer day and then the fog swoops in and instantly…BRRRRRR, where’s my sweater?

Photographer Simon Christen captured the majesty of the San Francisco Bay Area fog in this truly stunning clip. “Adrift” is sort of a love letter to it. It took him two years to “capture the magical interaction between the soft mist, the ridges of the California coast and the iconic Golden Gate Bridge.” It’s absolutely mesmerizing. No wonder it was chosen as a “Vimeo Staff Pick.” Definitely give it a view. The dedication Christen put in hiking in the dark at 5am to capture all this is remarkable.
