Spellbound: Britain Has Incredible Talent!

In: Patrick, TV Shows, Videos

It’s Season 4 of Britain’s Got Talent, the show that discovered Susan Boyle. The video of her audition gave me shivers and chills, even made my eyes well up because it was so freaking incredible and inspiring, you had to be non-human to not be moved by it.
Now, I have another video to share with you. A gymnastics group called Spellbound recently auditioned in the second episode of this season. There are thirteen of them in the group, ranging from ages 12 to 24. Let me tell you..they are amazing. Their strength and perfection was out of this world – even Simon had a face of pure amazement (shown above)! The group received a standing ovation with Simon saying, “I have never seen anything like that in my life….It was very clever. Really, really smart. Amanda added that it was, “Absolutely faultless.”

See for yourself.

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Patrick, Videos

The time has almost arrive for our Golden Girl, Betty White to host Saturday Night Live, along with some of my favorite female cast members every to be on the show. The show is on Mother’s Day weekend and it’s going to be epic!

To tease us all, they’ve released a little promo video with Betty talking about how the Internet (thanks to a Facebook group) got her the gig on SNL! I’m still crossing my fingers that they do a Golden Girls parody on the show as well. The promo clip also gives as a glimpse into Betty White, behind closed doors. Maybe a little Golden Girls X Rated?

Music: Simon Curtis

In: Music, Redd, Videos

I stumbled upon Simon Curtis while browsing through and immediately fell in love with both the music and the boy. I’ve been listening to it non-stop for the past week and I must admit, it is pop-genius and almost every song has an addictive and lingering hook. I wouldn’t go too far as comparing him to Lady Gaga but I must admit that just like her songs, each track is written to pop perfection. The hooks, the beats & the lyrics all come together to form a very catchy and fun listening experience. I also love how he’s tied the whole album with these video game music samples and vocal interludes before several tracks called BoyRobot, The Neverending Elevator & Victory. Pop needs to be gimmicky and catchy and I think he’s done the perfect mix to keep his listeners wanting more. I seriously think this guy has a bright future in pop, so watch out world!

Check out more pics, videos & the DOWNLOAD link to his full album (guilt-free download direct from his website) on the next part of the post.

We’ve got another one! I can’t never have too much parody in my life. This one I came across on Redd‘s Facebook yesterday, so I thought I’d steal it and share it with y’all. This parody is to Ke$ha’s “Take It Off” song – which was actually one of the handful of songs I liked on the album.

A gaggle of gays from Boston actually created this video to enter into a Ke$ha contest, only to realize after entering that the videos had to be using Tik Tok, not whatever song you wanted. Well, thanks to YouTube, all their hard work hasn’t gone to waste.

You’ve got your hot men in underwear, a synchronized outdoor group dance, and the climax where, they “take it off”. Good work boys – the video is a lot of fun!

Katie Melua: The Flood (Of Hot Men)

In: Music, Patrick, Videos

The music video for a new single called The Flood, from Georgian/British singer/songwriter/musician Katie Melua, features a flood of hot men dancing to her dramatic lyrics. Hot, ripped bodies. Tight black underwear. Body contact. Oh, the song is good too!

One interesting fact about Melua is that she holds a World Record for playing the deepest underwater concert (303 metres below sea level) on the Norwegian Statoil’s Troll (which is a platform in the North Sea). Melua, along with her band, had to do extensive medical tests & survival training before flying by helicopter to the rig. As she put it: “It was the most surreal gig I have ever done”.

In 2006, Melua was both the UK’s biggest selling female artist, as well as Europe’s. The single “The Flood,” is off of her fourth studio album called “The House,” due for release on May 24th, 2010.

The Lost Boys of Afghanistan

In: Patrick, Politics & Issues, Videos

Behind the scenes of a country already inflicted by war, an ancient tradition has resurfaced across the country and PBS has uncovered this sad story. This tradition had been banned by the Taliban when they were in power, but now it seems to be happening again. It’s called “Bacha Bazi,” which translated means “Boy Play.” Orphaned boys or those purchases from poor families are dressed up in women’s clothing and are taught to sing & dance for “all-male parties”. Hundreds of boys, as young as eleven years old, are involved in this child abuse. They perform in front of successful businessmen and former warlords, to which they are auctioned off to the highest bidder for a night of sex. This sexual exploitation can sometimes lead to murder.

Najibullah Quraishi (don’t ask me how to pronounce that) is an Afghan journalist who was able to investigate this illegal practice. Sometimes, the authorities that should be the ones protecting these children and preventing it from happening, find themselves participating in it.

Take a glimpse into the the dark world of Bacha Bazi. So sad.

Very Mary Kate

In: Dan, Videos

There are a few people in my life that I think are truly hysterical, and yes I have even been one to give myself credit for being g-damn funny. Anyone that can do a successful parody ripping on anything based on utter stupidity usually finds themselves in my all-time favorites list. Margaret Cho was one of the first. Tina Fey and Jimmy Fallon are recent additions (okay I was behind the times on those two). Now, Mary Kate has busted into the spotlight.

Her website, is the refresh I need twice a week. The concept is simple; portray Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen in the best possible, smartest manner. I can’t even describe the brilliance behind this idea! Her latest three part series, Back to School, Paper and Extension literally had me laughing out loud in my cubicle at work. ANYONE that can make me forget that I’m in a cubicle, even for 30 seconds, deserves a medal.

She has just recently committed to posting two new skit clips each week, so add this website to your favourites so you never miss an episode. I secretly hope she does a Full House flashback montage, just for loyalty fans sake. Just an idea…

The Hills: The End Is Near

In: Patrick, TV Shows, Videos

I’m so excited for the final season of The Hills. About a year ago, Donovan introduced me to the faux reality show after we happened to be in LA when Heidi & Spencer got married (which we got footage of and found ourselves on The Aftershow). After that, I was hooked. I went back and watch both season of Laguna Beach, then started on The Hills and watched Seasons 1 through 5, catching up in time to watch Season 6 as each episode aired.

After Lauren Conrad left, and “The Bitch” Kristin Cavallari was to join the show, the potential drama & backstabbing seemed promising. Unfortunately, the season was a snooze and Dono and I had great difficulty in coming up with material for our weekly parodies of the show each week. After the preview for the final season was released, I was officially totally excited to waste my time watching this show once again. Much juicier topics than last season, and more elements from their real lives are incorporated into the show.

Last week they released the promo clip for this season, featuring The Hill’s creator Adam Divello‘s marionettes drama queens having their strings cut, as they free themselves from the world of The Hills. Either that, or as they let loose in what could be the best season yet.

The final season of The Hills commences exactly one week from today: Tuesday, April 27th at 10/9c on MTV.
