It had been over a year and a half since I had seen my parents, and even longer since I had been to Terrace (Hockeyville Canada 2009) for Christmas, so when I arrived into my home town of Terrace on the evening of the 23rd on the just under 2-hour flight from Vancouver, I was excited. I arrived to snow, and an airport full of families greeting their loved ones for their holiday visit. As per usual, my parents were worried that I wouldn’t be warm enough with my Vancouver coat, but we grabbed my suitcase and drove home.
When I got home I arrived to all the elaborate Christmas decor that I remember. It was perfect. The lights outside, lights & decorations in the entry, and a full decked out Christmas tree with a gigantic village underneath – my favorite part! I miss decorating the tree and setting up the village with my family. It was always a lot of work, but a lot of fun too. My brother Carl hadn’t arrived from work yet, but as I walked around and check out the decorations with my parents, I felt like a kid screaming and jumping up & down on the inside…all of a sudden I was SO excited for Christmas and even more excited to be home. My brother arrive later on, and after catching up on pictures and stories, my friends Lisa and Kaliopi also came for a visit and I went with them to the popular restaurant/hangout, Mr. Mikes where I was bound to run into several old friends. And that I did- some from elementary school, some from highschool, some old co-workers, and more. It was good to catch up. After trying to be persuaded my by elementary school friend Andrew to go to Karaoke, Lisa drove me home so I could catch some zees.
“Buy me a drink, buy, buy me a drink…go to my place, my place, my place…” Get ready, cuz after you’ve seen this video slash heard this song, that sassy & catchy line is gonna be in your head all. day. long.
This glamorous Vancouver gay pop singer (think Johnny McGovern…but more fabulous and looks more like Aaron Carter) has been doing his thing here in VanCity for a a short while now (kinda taking after Armstrong Junior I suppose), performing at various gay events in the city, has recently released his video for “FuckTalk (Buy Me A Drink).
One such event was Vancouver Gay Pride this past year (and had one of the best entries in the parade too – see the photo below!)
So in lieu of the upcoming Holiday season I was doing some random perusing of the internet (slash YouTube) while everyone else seems to have an abundance of time off and I’m left in the office with nothing but my advent calendar to entertain me. Ba-humbug!
Low and behold I combined two of my favourite things on the planet, entered them into YouTube’ brilliant search engine, ‘Christmas’ and ‘Dancing’ and I wasn’t disappointed! After rummaging through some toddlers forced into oversized Santa’s hats rocking out against a living room coffee table to Jingle Bell Rock, I stumbled across an ensemble of boys who took it upon themselves to entertain their high school (?) during what appears to be their Holiday assembly (?)
Granted, most of these men are likely still dating women, I like to believe that the title of the video rings true. The 12 Gays of Christmas. (That would be the ultimate stack o’ gifts under the tree…12 men starring up at the angel perched high atop the tree…)
Their skill is damn impressive, and their attention to detail is enough to bring a smile to any scrooge’s face. Without further ado, behold, the 12 Gays of Christmas…
Guess whoooooooooooooo’s back? It’s our friends Jessica and Hunter with a spanking brand new hilarious video- correction, it’s actually freakin’ brillballs. It feels like forever since we got a new episode from these Jersey-Shore-tanned trannys, but it definitely was worth the wait. Why did it take so long, this is what they told me.
we had to pry the mojitos out of our hands and stop watching hoarders to make it happen and you guys have shown us so much hot hunky man love that we are gifting you guys first…HAPPY KWANZAA
We love that these hookers love us as much as we love them. Not to toot our perfect 12 inch horn, but they also claim they’re so addicted to us they need a Dr. Drew intervention. First step is admitting you have a problem girls and then…. um… yeah… the first step is all you need, haha.
Watch these coked-out fashionis-don’s bump into a couple of lame-o snooty high school “friends”. What ensues is a laugh out encounter. Admittedly, I was LOLing all over the place during the entire vid. Check it out after the jump and show our cyber BFFs some love. Holla.
You can file this under weirdest-stories-the-year for sure, but say what you will this story really warmed my heart like a hot cup of eggnog and put me into a cheery Christmas spirit. Not a lot to say on this one except that the Grinch has some serious competition.
Boy’s Mother April Wright is obviously a struggling single Mom and you can hear her version of the story in the video after the jump, but the facts are still there. Chattanooga, Tennessee is the birth place of a four year old toddler that has the super human ability to unlock child proof doors, and a nack for drinking, breaking and entering, and cross dressing.
Okay okay I won’t say much more because the report in the video, right from the screen behind the reporter with a can that says “Beer” beside a christmas tree, is just priceless. It’s true that it may be a faux pas with the amount of guffawing this has caused me, but judge for yourself whether this deserves some concern and pathos, or a chuckle and a cheers.
Were any of you home to watch Regis this morning? This morning R&B star Ne-Yo stopped by Live with Regis & Kelly and performed “Never Knew I Needed Love,” from the fairy tale remake of The Princess and the Frog soundtrack. Ne-Yo’s last album was the “Year of the Gentlemen” in 2008. When he’s not doing his own stuff, he’s helping others with there, have helped write songs for Whitney Houston, Celine Dion, Anastacia, Ciara, Corbin Bleu, and Enrique Iglesias. He also helped Lindsay Lohan her last “big” single Bossy, which I actually really liked.
This new song is actually quite nice and truthfully I hadn’t heard it before the performance this morning. I also want to see the movie now too, after seeing all the previews for it! Here’s the chorus of the song:
“you’re the best thing i never knew i needed
so when you were here i had no idea
you’re the best thing i never knew i needed
so now it’s so clear i need you here always”
Say what you will about Ashton Kutcher. No matter how annoying his celebrity persona can be (and it is), the dude is always on the forefront of the next hottest thing. He was the first high-profile cougar chaser, the first to hit over 1,000,000 followers on twitter and don’t forget Punk’d. Now Kutcher is at it again with one of the most innovative ideas, I’ve seen in a long time.
Even though, I predicted the Kutcher produced “The Beautiful Life” would be a stinker for The CW network, I ended up loving this guilty pleasure cheesefest. Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t Shakespeare by any means, but it was entertaining enough to keep my interest. With all the pre-season promotion going to “Melrose Place“, “The Beautiful Life” got the promotional shaft. After only airing for two episodes, The CW immediately pulled the plug. The biggest problem I have with network television is how they handle canceling shows. That’s not to say I don’t see where they’re coming from. I fully comprehend the financial reasons for their decision, but what I don’t understand is their decision to not air already filmed episodes for the canceled series. I for one, am extremely pleased ABC is airing filmed Eastwick episodes during this mid-December new programming lull.
Dave Audé and Bimbo Jones are 2 of my favourite remixers of all time. Whenever a new pop song comes out, I just can’t wait for these DJ Producers to get their paws on it and tear it apart sometimes into a completely different song once they’re done with it. Which remixer/producer/DJ do you like best? Both have remixed many pop songs over the years and these are my top 3 songs.
