For anyone who’s ever been in a long-term relationship, you know it’s not easy. After being with each other for many years, it’s easy to entertain the grass is greener theory and to take each other for granted. For myself, I’m guilty of the latter with Brian- 13 years and counting.
I’m sure William Campbell and John Hilton experienced many obstacles during their 54 years together. Freedom To Marry highlights the couple in this short and touching video. There’s nothing that gets me more sentimental than watching elderly couples holding hands on the street. I shed a tear inside every single time I see it.
The clip shows the couple’s time together over seven decades starting from the 50s. Loved seeing all the pictures of them from each decade. Sadly though, Bill passed away in May 2011 just seven weeks before New York legalized same-sex marriage. The title of the clip, “More Than Ever,” was named after the way Bill used to sign his letters to John during his time in the armed forces. He used to shorten it to just MTE. Awwww. Brian and I also have a short code we say to each other instead of saying I love you. Though it’s a sad ending, the four minute video is definitely worth watching.
Some of you might be surprised to know that I love a good surf movie. Point Break is one of my all-time favorites in the genre. Blue Crush and North Shore weren’t half bad either. Imagine my excitement when I read that Sam Worthington (Avatar) and Xavier Samuel (The Twilight Saga: Eclipse) were starring in a surfing flick and one based on true events to boot. I love a ripped from a headlines type of approach.
Drift takes place in the 1970s and centers on two Aussie brothers played by Xavier Samuel and Myles Pollard who start building a surfboard and wetsuit business. Things get intense when they get mixed up with a local drug dealer. Sam Worthington co-stars as a traveling bohemian surf photographer and filmmaker who becomes involved in the brothers’ lives. Six months ago, the first trailer debuted, now we have a clip created specifically for North American audiences. Check out both the Aussie and domestic one below.
Side note: Myles Pollard must be a huge star in Australia. Why else would he get top billing over Worthington and Samuel. Hopefully, our Aussie readers can enlighten me on Pollard’s popularity down under.
Havana Brown is carving out a nice little career for herself as a dance diva. The Australian DJ turned singer has two US Hot Dance Club chart-toppers under her belt with “We Run The Night” and “Big Banana.” I’m sure she’s hoping to score a hat trick with her new single lifted from her debut album When The Lights Go Out.
“Spread A Little Love” is another collaboration with RedOne. It’s an upbeat inspiring record, but not nearly as catchy as her previous singles, especially “We Run The Night” which I was obsessed with. Perhaps a killer dance remix will give it new life at the clubs. However, with that in mind, it’s nice to see a softer gentler side of the 28-year-old Aussie.
In the Einar Eglisson-directed clip, Brown turns up the glamor factor. This is the most gorgeous and classiest I’ve seen her. I’m living for that red flowy dress she rocks out. Havana’s scenes are intertwined with an actual narrative. A little girl is seen carrying numerous objects to create a heart-shaped sign for a little boy who’s ill in a hospital room. Awwwww. Check out Brown’s new music video below.
Recently, I received a suggestion that I should feature more openly gay men in my Man Crush series. Ask and you shall receive I say. Meet Christopher Marchant- a gay violinist living in New York City. Who knew playing that instrument would result in such huge biceps. I never got those kind of results playing the organ ;)
Marchant is a co-founding member of Well Strung, a hot singing string quartet. The string boy band like to cover Lady Gaga and Kesha tunes with classical repertoire such as Vivaldi. The name of the group actually came about due to a photoshoot with DNA magazine. The Aussie publication titled the spread “well strung” and the rest is as they say, history. Prior to Well Strung, Marchant was part of a show in 2010 called “Naked Boys Singing” in Provincetown, Mass. Ummm, I’d like to see videos of those performances.
Check out several sexy pics of him below, along with a photo from his DNA spread that features him wearing only a strategically placed violin. Based on it, I can see why they titled it well
hung strung ;) Oh, and if you find yourself in the NYC area, it looks like he moonlights as a bartender. Happy hunting.
If you’re more of a fan of Justin Timberlake the actor as opposed to “Suit & Tie” Timberlake, fear not. The 32-year-old actor hasn’t abandoned his film career just yet. The first trailer for his upcoming flick Runner, Runner about online gambling has just been released.
Timberlake plays Richie Furst a Princeton student who is cheated out of his tuition money by playing online poker. When he learns that the site is hosted from a remote island location, he goes to confront the site’s corrupt owner, Ivan Block (Ben Affleck), but is lured into becoming Ivan’s protégé and right-hand man. Their relationship starts to reach a boiling point all while an FBI agent tries to use Richie to bring Ivan down.
The film also features Gemma Arterton, Anthony Mackie, Oliver Cooper, Ben Schwartz and Sam Palladio. Leonardo DiCaprio co-produced the film. It’s a bit hilarious DiCaprio and Affleck are involved in this project considering a couple years back they were allegedly part of an underground gambling ring. At least they didn’t have to do much research for the film ;) Check out the trailer below. Runner, Runner comes to theaters on September 27.
Kirill Dowidoff is pretty damn hard to resist. There’s no denying that, but ES Collection wants to put that theory to the test. The Spanish brand once again taps the Russian underwear model to show off his chiseled physique to pimp their goods.
In the Joan Crisol-directed clip, titled “Hard To Resist,” Dowidoff first appears fully clothed. He dares you to focus solely on his eyes as he slowly strips, showing off that money-making body of his. It’s hard not to follow every muscle and ripped aspect of Kirill’s body. To be fair, ES Collection cheats a little by giving extremely close up shots of certain body parts without his eyes in sight.
The video is definitely sexy, but I would’ve rather Kirill himself do the voiceover. I’m pretty sure his hot Russian accent would’ve increased the hotness of the sensual clip. Try to resist Dowidoff below.
This summer comedy has the potential to be the next great quotable film. Mean Girls, Clueless and Drop Dead Gorgeous better watch out, I might have a new go-to flick to steal lines from.
A red-band teaser trailer first debuted last year in August. Thankfully, a full-length one has finally been released and it doesn’t disappoint. The To-Do List is the writing and directorial debut for Maggie Carey, wife of Bill Hader (who makes an appearance in the film). This ’90s-based teen comedy looks to give a new female spin on a tried and true classic tale of sexual conquest.
Aubrey Plaza plays an intelligent high school graduate who’s not so experienced in the boudoir. In other words, she’s a big ol virgin. She decides to make a list of things to accomplish before hitting campus in the fall. Given her initial thoughts on what teabagging and pearl necklace are, she’s in for a rude awakening when she finds out the latter isn’t as elegant as she thinks. I can only imagine how graphic the film is going to be. I’m so excited.
Also starring in the film are Alia Shawkat, Donald Glover, Bill Hader, Connie Britton, Rachel Bilson, Clark Gregg, Scott Porter and Adam Pally. Check out the trailer below of what will undoubtedly be the raunchiest movie of the summer.
The United Kingdom’s Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has determined that a commercial for web hosting firm Dreamscape Networks is too racy for television and banned it. They came to this decision after receiving complaints that it was “sexist and “degrading to women.” Ummm, isn’t that the former Baywatch star’s entire brand???
“The ASA understood that the ad was intended as a parody of a mundane business meeting and was intended to be humorous and light-hearted. Whilst we noted Dreamscape Networks’ and Clearcast’s comments about the female characters being portrayed as strong, confident business women, we considered that they were also portrayed sexually throughout the ad, not just during the fantasy sequence,” the ASA said in its ruling. “Although the fantasy scene, which we considered was sexually suggestive, was limited to Adam’s imagination, we considered it gave the impression that he viewed his female colleagues as sexual objects to be lusted after. Because of that, we considered the ad was likely to cause serious offense to some viewers on the basis that it was sexist and degrading to women.”
The commercial features Anderson dressed up as a sexy executive with her ample assets in plain sight of one of her of male colleagues. When another female asks Pamela if she wants cream, the horny male begins fantasizing about the two women stripping down to their gold bikinis while being splashed with cream.
For me, the most questionable thing isn’t the two women rubbing their titties and butts together in slow motion, but rather the context. Perhaps this is a silly question, but why is the UK banning a commercial that’s enticing viewers to purchase a .com.au domain? Am I the only one who finds it odd that this Australian ad was supposed to air in the UK? Check out the racy clip below and see if you think it’s too sexy for television.
