Put A Netflix Subscription In Their Stocking

In: Charge It, Tyrell

In preparation for your holiday gift shopping, you know there aren’t only presents to put under the tree but also stockings to stuff. For me, this is the task I find the most difficult. Growing up, my mom was always in charge of stuffing the stockings that hung from our mantel above the fireplace. Inside, we would find socks, candies, and little trinkets. As the years went on and we got older, the task got harder for her I’m sure. Body washes, colognes and other things began to appear in the stocking.

Nowadays, we live in a society where everyone just usually goes and buys whatever they need and want. This includes regular household items such as body washes and colognes. So I always ponder what to put inside a stocking other than the most lamest, fall back and last resort plan: the gift card. But then it hit me, why not give a subscription to Netflix? Its perfect!

Sports Stud: Matthew Mitcham

In: Patrick, Totally GAY!

Let’s dive right into this week’s Sports Stud, highlight the stunning men of sports. Matthew Mitcham made a splash when he won the gold for Australia at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, making him the first Australian male to win an Olympic gold medal in diving since 1924. A fellow Pisces (I only know this because his birthday is a day after mine), he’s also a fellow gay as well and was one of only a few openly gay athletes at the 2008 Summer Olympics. This past year, he won four silver medals at the 2010 Commonwealth Games.

During the 2008 Olympics, he graced the cover of the The Advocate as well as Australia’s DNA Magazine. His boyfriend, Lachlan Fletcher, attended the games as a spectator, supporting his man. He first came out in the Sydney Morning Herald before heading to the Olympics, making him the first Australian to do so.

He is currently studying French and Spanish at Sydney University and training of course.

Fashion: Lanvin for H&M

In: Charge It, Fashion, Redd

Probably one of the most anticipated collaborations in H&M history to date, the Lanvin collection for H&M truly is inspiring and beautiful. I’ve seen all the past collaborations and wasn’t really impressed as I am with Lanvin. Alber Elbaz is a true fashion genius! The collection does not skimp on style and look just as good as their haute couture counterparts.

“To see it on the catwalk tonight styled by Alber, in his own way, is totally and utterly inspirational.”
– Hilary Alexander, The Daily Telegraph

“The show was so much fun. It is hard to impress this crowd and everybody was like laughing and clapping and it was great, it was really amazing!”
– Elettra Wiedemann, Model

Check out the The official event video from the Lanvin H&M event & runway show at The Pierre Hotel in New York City, November 18th on the next part of the post.

You know I love me some indies and nothing screams random independent like a movie who’s original title doesn’t even register in the top search results on IMDB. Add to that a thriller directed by the infamous- to nerds like me- Christopher Smith of “Creep”, “Triangle” and “Severance“, (the latter two I’ve coincidentally lavished with rave reviews)- and you have “Black Death”. And, despite the terribly ominous and slightly blasé title, this one performs on all levels.

During the raging plague (or black death) of medieval England, only one small village claims to remain untouched by the rampant disease and instead of flocking to the haven for help, the Crown sends a band of mercenaries led by a self-proclaimed “holy knight” to enlist a local monk and search out the healthy town and hunt down the witches who must be behind the town’s immunity… While it sounds eye-rollingly typical of a period piece to blame the secular, the women and the poor, this puppy has an is-it-or-isn’t-it divine intervention twist as the unscathed are found to be heathens who pray to mother earth rather than the at-the-time required God almighty. A mix between “Heart of Darkness”, Kurtz’s journey into madness and Haneke’s creepy-ville “White Ribbon”, this tale of bloodied machismo frenzies and sexualized ladies is a definite must see for those lookin’ to snoobishly throw around their modern-cinema references at even the most emo of shindigs.

Book Review: You Better Not Cry

In: Dan, Random Reads

What better treat to curl up with this Holiday season than Augusten Burroughs’ Christmas-themed short-story novella, You Better Not Cry. I’ll admit that I have a passion that burns inside me that oozes love for all of Burroughs’ work. I first read Running with Scissors approximately five years ago and I absolutely loved it. I found myself almost instantly swept up in the story of his destructive pre-pubescent life, and I endlessly wanted more. More stories, more insight, and more constant struggle ever portrayed through his destructive homosexual eyes.

In his latest Holiday literature gift, Burroughs reminisces on a few of his past Holiday and Christmas memories, some his finest and others most likely his worst. The span reaches back to his childhood all the way through to his most recent past all crammed into a minimal 200 pages – yet, well worth the read.

“Goonies Never Say Die”. Now they’ll never have to in this AWESOME new collector box set. “The Goonies” is easily one of my favorite childhood movies of all time. I love it so much, I want one of these posters in our entertainment area. Over the years, I’ve watched it several times and every time I do, it without fail brings me back to the magic of the first time I saw it. If you’ve never watched the movie, it’s about a group of kids who find themselves on a once-in-a-lifetime treasure hunt. Along the way they encounter a family of bumbling criminals who are intent on capturing them. The family adventure classic is a swashbuckling good time and has twist and turns around every corner with a couple of booby trap surprises.

The Goonies (25th Anniversary Collector’s Edition) isn’t just your average DVD box set. Just like the movie itself, it comes with a bounty of goodies. Not only do you get the movie in a newly remastered version, but you get extras valued more than the doubloons in the movie. Well, at least to this uber fan, they are. Without hesitation, this was an easy choice to include in our “2010 Holiday Gift Guide
