Halloween is coming and it’s time to figure out what you’re going to get dressed up as… or undressed up as in some instances. As Cady Herron (Lindsay Lohan) says in Mean Girls, Halloween is the one time a year when a girl can dress like a total slut and no one can say anything about it.” That applies in the gay world as well, although the gays find so many other events to undress for like White Party or…Thursday night.
For those single people out there, you’ve got the the naughty devil or sexy bunny…for the guys, it’s the fireman or superhero. Wearing as little as possible to get as much [action] as possible. CandyMan adult costumes has taken this to another level for you guys looking to score your tricks and treats this Halloween. Check them out and get ‘em quick cause Hallow’s Eve is fast approaching!
As the episode starts off, their first clue directs them to Jamestown, found across the town in Ghana. Once they get there, they have to find the boxing academy where they’ll find their next clue.
Brooke & Claire, who got to leave first, are the first ones there. It’s a Roadblock, so only one of them does the challenge. Team members must put on sparing gloves, use a punching bag and jump rope for a set amount of time in order to get their next clue. Pretty straight forward. Brooke & Claire finish first, followed by Chad & Stephannie, Katie & Rachel, and Conner & Jonathon.
Connor & Jonathan arrive to the next clue first. Why don’t they sing about it? Teams must bring wheelbarrows full of cement mix and a few other items to a school in order to get their next clue. Once they do so, they have a pop quiz where they must join a class and properly label Ghana on a world map.
This is really sad. Yet another teen suicide in the U.S. – this time in Norman, Oklahoma. A 6 foot4 teen named Zach Harrington attended a City Council meeting on September 28th, where council members were asked to recognize October as LGBT History Month in the city. After three hours of intense debate, the result was a 7-1 vote approving the resolution. But, during those three hours, there was a “toxic” anti-gay exchange between city folk says Harrington’s family, ultimately contributing to him taking his own life in his family’s home a week later.
Harrington was an aspiring musician who graduated from Norman North High School. He was in band, orchestra and was the first male captain of the color guard. At this school, he was bullied by teens because of his sexuality to the point where halfway through his senior year, he asked to leave and get his diploma through a different program.
This is hilarious. This poor guy trying to do his work at the office is constantly getting startled by his coworkers, as they each sneak up behind him and give him a fright. Scream after scream, laugh after laugh. I have to admit, I would (and have been) all of his coworkers doing the same thing to friends and coworkers. There’s just something about pranking or sneaking up on people that keeps me young, haha.
About halfway through this video, I do start to feel bad for the guy though. I mean, it must not be good for you to be startled every five minutes – they’re gonna give the poor guy a heart attack!
The video was done by Opie (Gregg Hughes) and Anthony (Anthony Cumia) of the radio show, The Opie & Anthony Show in New York.
Coming into Thanksgiving weekend is always a bit of a dubious situation for me: is everyone heading out of town? are any parties actually competing with the family-ridden vacation? how many more kids have my siblings created this year around to bring to the dinner table? So, to find out that yes there is a proper event for us mo’s to enjoy was a definite smile inducer… hearing that it’s being hosted by the built boys of the gay hockey league was a definite, well, you-know-what erector ;)
The Cutting Edges (a reference to the kitsch 90s skating cult classic?) are Vancouver’s gay hockey club and they host an annual dance party called Oktoberfest for fans and friends alike to drink, dance and skate at (for the few dozen brave enough to combine tequila and toe picks ;) Last night it was hosted at the Denman rinks and was by all accounts a total success… okay, I actually kind of failed miserably at my true mission to finds me a husband, but that was certainly not due to a lack of prospective bachelors: this party is a veritable beefy, sausage fest!
Apparently, Laura Dern (Jurassic Park) was caught off guard on Friday when her two time Grammy winning boyfriend, Ben Harper filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences. If he really is doing this out of nowhere, he’s a major douche-a-saurus! He is requesting the judge not give her spousal support and he wants joint legal and physical custody of their two children – Ellery, 9, and Jaya, 5.
They’ve been married since 2005, and had been dating for five years prior to that. Now, there relationship is extinct. Harper says that he and Dern separated back in January, but that doesn’t add up considering people that know the couple have said they’ve been living and traveling together and were even intimate as recently as last week.
Not only has Facebook taken over our computers, iPhones, Blackberrys, and the like, The Social Network also continues to dominate the Box Office. I for one contributed to this, having watched the film on Friday night with Tyrell. It lived up to all of the ravings that Donovan (and the rest of the world) gave it. It’s very inspiring and incredibly interesting to see how the ideas of a few people have evolved into impacting our lives so much, and their bank accounts simultaneously. With total ticket sales now reaching over $46 million, it is a proven success considering it cost $40 million to make.
Not that far behind was “Life As We Know It,” reviewed by Nic, who more or less gave it a thumbs down. The Secretariat doesn’t win this race, the Diane Lane horse film falling in third place. In general though, people who went to both of those films liked the films which makes it promising for their ticket sales in the weeks to come.
Sam Tsui and Kurt Schneider have been creating songs and mashups since they were in high school with a keyboard and GarageBand. Now students at Yale University, their partnership has flourished into one of the top viewed YouTube channels out there. Sam Tsui provides the killer vocals while Kurt Schneider produces and plays any instruments needed to complete the mix. Sam and Kurt have made various television appearances to promote their craft. The Bonnie Hunt Show had them on the show in 2009 where they performed a rendition of I Wanna Dance With Somebody by Whitney Houston. More recently in 2010, they appeared on Oprah performing their famous Michael Jackson medley which has garnered more than 15 million views on YouTube. Other famous covers and mashups include a Lady Gaga medley, Fireflies by Owl City and the popular Don’t Stop Believin’ by the Glee kids. A side project these two created is College Musical which takes aim on the High School Musical trilogy. With original songs written and produced by Kurt Schneider and Sam Tsui playing the leading male, Cooper, the YouTube episodes have created enough buzz that a full length movie based on the musical is in the works.
These two are also beginning work on original numbers and music videos for Sam Tsui. Don’t Want an Ending is one of the new tracks. Its quite good and an easy listen.
