Man Crush 2010 Showdown Finals

In: Donovan, Totally GAY!

For several weeks, readers have been casting their votes for their pick as 2010’s Ultimate Man Crush. On a weekly basis during 2010, I’ve shared my weekly man crushes with you. Sometimes they were hits, and sometimes they were misses, but each won my cyber heart for a whole week. After tens of thousands of votes during three preliminary rounds, here are you finalists.

Fitness buff Scott Herman and Brit heartthrob Henry Cavill come via Round 1, with Herman winning. Round 2 gave us Colton Haynes and 90210’s Matt Lanter. Originally I was going to make the finals consist of only 5 finalists: the winner of each round and the next two vote getters. But with the hustle and bustle of Christmas week and a shorter voting period than the rest, Round 3 contestants didn’t get their fair due. Having said that, I’ve selected the top three- Maxwell Zagorski, James Preston and Charlie Williams – to compete in the finals.

Make sure to vote for your favorite and vote often. Voting ends Monday Jan 3, 2011 when the winners will be announced 9am PST.

Behind The Cast: Christmas In Manitoba

In: Behind The Cast, Tyrell

I haven’t been away from home for too long but I did leave this summer in a frenzy to begin my new job in Vancouver. Because of my quick disappearing act, I am really excited to be back home in Manitoba for some good ol’ family and friends time. I am also excited and fortunate to have Patrick along for the ride with me as well. We’ve been in the province for 2 days and already its been a whirlwind of family get-togethers, brunches and dinners.

Last night, Patrick got to experience the wild side of life with a a family get together of the Witherspoon side. We all got together at my Uncle Todd and Aunt Darcy’s place for some pool, bevies and of course, a lot of laughs. My dad’s side of the family is always a good time and definitely knows how to party. One thing I did discover was how terrible I am at the game of pool. My New Year’s resolution is definitely to practice more pool.

Hi guys! It’s been a while since I wrote a BTC so I thought I’d fill you in on what’s happening. The pic above is my dog posing for his annual holiday photo :)

I was in Toronto last month visiting my best friend, scoping out the city (last I’ve been was a few years back) & checking out a potential employer. I won’t say much cause nothing is set in stone. I must say, I do love the “big city” feel of Toronto and could see myself living there which is a good sign in case I decide to head east. So we’ll see what the new year holds!

Boxing Day: Tips To Surviving The Chaos

In: Patrick, Random Reads

Other than Black Friday in the U.S., Boxing Day is the next big crazy shopping day. In Canada, it’s the big day. When Santa didn’t bring you everything you wanted, now’s the time to do it yourself. Or, if you were one of those few people that managed to only shop for other people when Christmas shopping, and never threw in that extra…camera for yourself, now’s your chance to spoil yourself. While crowds of people and huge lineups are not for everyone, for those of you that do plan to head out into the chaos, here are some tips to surviving the madness.

1. Do Your Research

A lot of the big stores advertise ahead of time as to what their sales are going to be. Check them out and see if there’s anything worth your while. You can save a lot of wasted time and stress by only hitting the stores you’re actually interested in, and knowing what you’re looking for once you get inside.

TV On DVD Hot For The Holidays

In: Charge It, TV Shows, Tyrell

We’re taking the day off today, so we decided to repost some of our favorite Christmas-themed posts from this and previous years.

Give the gift of TV this holiday season! No, I don’t mean going out and buying your best friend the newest HD, 3D TV, (although, that would be awesome). I’m talking about picking out their favorite TV series from present or past and giving them a season or two on DVD. You can’t go wrong with this gift.

Almost everyone owns a DVD player or computer and can enjoy their favorite TV shows on the go with your fabulous gift. So many great new shows are into their fourth or fifth seasons, so why not pick up season 1 or 2 for someone to catch up? Feeling nostalgic? Why not snag a few seasons of Golden Girls or Full House? Whatever their favorite genre, comedy, drama or sci-fi, there is a series out there for any enthusiast. I took to to find what TV series DVDs were hot for each genre this year to give you guys a few pointers.

Hopefully she attached a gift receipt with this new “gift”. First off, isn’t it a bit early to be hawking Christmas-related items. Seriously, September just ended. Secondly, I don’t know what possessed her to release another Christmas album. Her first holiday release “Merry Christmas” released in 1994, is a modern day classic. There’s no way in hell she’ll top “All I Want For Christmas Is You“.

Okay, “Oh Santa!” isn’t really that bad. It’ll probably grow on me after hearing it thousands of times on the radio and on TV. The urban-pop holiday jingle was produced by Jermaine Dupri and will be on her “Merry Christmas II You” album. Pretty clever title, considering her first festive CD was titled, “Merry Christmas”. The new album will feature four original songs, with traditional holiday tunes covers filling up the CD.

A Social Network Christmas Story

In: Random Reads, Tyrell

We’re taking the day off today, so we decided to repost some of our favorite Christmas-themed posts from this and previous years.

For those of you out there who are addicted to Facebook (yes, I am one of you…), this video is for you. Have you ever watched an entire story, relationship, conversation or just some good ol’ drama unfold in your news feed? This clever take on the story of Jesus’ birth through Facebook was created by Igniter Media. There a media website that dedicates their time to creating mini movies that tell big stories. Here is what they had to say about this particular project:

This video is an artistic take on how the story of the nativity might have read had a social network existed at the time of Jesus’s birth. Follow this historical period as it unfolds as a digital narrative. This vignette is great for highlighting the truths and circumstances of our Savior’s birth in a fresh, unique way.
