Model Behavior: Thomas Ivasaki

In: Donovan, Fashion

As I was searching high and low on the internet for this week’s selection for my Model Behavior feature, I was on a mission to go a little fitness model and more fashion. When I stumbled upon Thomas Ivasaki, immediately I knew I picked a winner. Just look at that profile and lips. Gorgeous. Not only does he look good without his shirt (a Homorazzi requirement), but he’s equally as scrumptious wearing designer clothes.

The 23-year-old sexy beast was born in Brasilia, Brazil and of mixed heritage. He’s part Japanese and part Brazilian. He was discovered in Sao Paolo four years ago and is currently signed with Premier Model Management. Some of his more prominent campaigns include Fila and Skechers. During Project Runway’s fourth season, he was a featured model for the show’s first ever men’s sportwear challenge. Some of the photographers he’s worked with include Daniel Ward, Albert Goquingco and Troy Phillips to name a few.

DWTS 11 Week 9 Video Performances

In: TV Shows, Tyrell

Tonight is the DWTS Semi-finals. Whoah. Where did the time go? Next week, the final 3 couples will battle it out for the coveted Mirror Ball trophy. Tonight, we will find out who has what it takes to take them all the way to the top. Tonight, each couple will perform two dances. First, they will perform in a latin round where the star must break apart from their pro and dance a solo. Then, the ballroom round where the couple must compete a style they have not yet competed. I think tonight is going to get very heated. Obviously, IMHO, Bristol doesn’t stand a chance against the other 3 stars. Brandy and Jennifer have consistently been on top with Kyle not far behind. However, Bristol seems to continue to fly under the radar and make it through to the next round. Will this week be the end of the activist or will she live to fight another day?

BRANDY & MAKSIM CHMERKOVSKIY – PASO DOBLE

Song: “Firework” – Katy Perry
We start off with Brandy and Maks. These two have shared the lead for the last four weeks so will this dance keep them on top? With this Paso, Brandy must also break away from Maks and perform a solo. Her biggest competition is Jennifer for sure but her growth has brought her a long way and if she can overcome a few of her obstacles, she may go all the way. On to their dance. They perform to one of my favorite Katy Perry songs. They begin with this little acting sequence that leaves something to be desired. It feels contrived and I don’t think the panel will like it. As Maks walks off, Brandy follows with her solo which she actually executed well in my opinion. Once her and Maks connect again the Paso is on and I’m digging it. Song choice is such a big deal for me and I think this song was the wrong choice for this Paso at this stage in the competition. However, song aside, I thought Brandy danced it well and embodied the character that was given to her. She finishes alone, strong centre floor. Len said that Brandy came out 100% and gave everything she got. Bruno thought Brandy released all of her aggression but lost finesse a few times when she let it all out. Carrie Ann agreed with both judges and thought she was locked into the character and used her upper body well. I agree with all of their comments but did they honestly not watch the first 20 seconds of the dance? Hmm.

THE SCORES:
Carrie Ann: 9
Len: 9
Bruno: 9
TOTAL: 27 out of 30

Rumors had be swirling around about this for a while now, about Facebook launching an email platform that would compete with Gmail. On Monday, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced the plans, saying that email was only one of the components of the plan. Today he announced “The New Messages”.

So one of the big things is that messages are grouped into one ongoing conversation with each friend or group of friends, not by date or subject line, how it’s conventionally done. You’ll also be able to request getting a Facebook email account that will be what your Facebook public username is.

On top of that, more changes have been made, shown below…

First Look @ MTV’s “Teen Wolf” Reboot

In: Donovan, TV Shows

These days MTV is primarily known for airing trashy reality docu-dramas shows. Let’s face it, “Teen Mom“, “My Super Sweet 16” and “Jersey Shore” are pretty much bottom feeders. Entertaining? Yes. Embarrassing? Hella yes. Long gone are the days when the music television station actually played music videos on a regular basis. While they’re not heading back to music video airplay, they are veering away from showing so much reality and heading to scripted shows. Don’t worry, all you reality fans, you’ll still get your reality fix when “Jersey Shore 3” and the new Lauren Conrad show air next year.

One of the scripted shows the network is going with is a reboot of the Michael J. Fox film, “Teen Wolf”. It stars Tyler Posey playing the lead (Scott McCall) and Crystal Reed as the love interest. If Posey looks familiar to you, he played Jennifer Lopez’s son in “Maid In Manhattan“. Now he’s all grown and legal (19-year-olds) in real life for all you lusting after him. One of my former weekly crushes, Colton Haynes, also appears on the show.

The stunning Scarlett Johansson, has been named Babe of the Year by GQ Magazine, in their December Issue. Star of “Iron Man 2,” Lost in Translation,” and the upcoming “Avengers” in 2012, this babe isn’t going anywhere. This past weekend, she hosted SNL for no particular reason, and even joked about it herself. Normally the host has a movie coming out or there is some sort of buzz going on about them, but Scarlett hosted for the third time just because. GQ states:

“The Megans and Milas and Blakes may come and go with the usual ebb and flow of the multiplex, but our (somewhat unhealthy) fascination with one woman endures…At 26, she remains fresh-faced, curious, trying on new moods and outlets of expression as easily as she changes her hair color. This is what we love about Scarlett: that she’s game, that she’s good, that she can try on all these guises without seeming to try too hard. And all the while still seem genuinely like the observant, inquisitive (and very cute) girl in transition we fell for in ‘Lost in Translation.'”

A 14-year-old Ann Arbor student named Graeme Taylor stood up for his teacher Jay McDowell, in a powerful speech at a recent school board meeting. Taylor himself is openly gay, and he took it upon himself to stand up for his teacher at the meeting. McDowell was disciplined on October 20 for removing two students who had made anti-gay remarks in class. Ridiculous.

During his speech in support of his teacher, Taylor revealed that when he was only 9 years old, bullying led him to a suicide attempt. Inspired by his teacher, the boy speaks confidently and wise beyond his years, likening the situation to racism against blacks that their city is known for, given that it’s the headquarters for the KKK.

Pink’s 10 Best Songs

In: Music, Patrick

Ten years after she first debuted, Alecia Beth Moore, otherwise known as Pink (or P!nk), is releasing her “Greatest Hits… So Far!!!”. In my opinion, Pink has done so well because she is her own person and doesn’t follow any rules or try to be like any artist. She’s a tough chick and that makes her hot, as opposed to getting all glammed up for her videos with fans blowing her hair in the wind. Her voice is hauntingly powerful and her beats catchy. At the very least, her Top 5 songs I can say I know for sure at a party or on the dance floor, my friends and I have belted out the lyrics like there was no tomorrow on more than one occasion.

A lot of her songs are about pulling yourself together, being strong, believing in yourself, and having fun. Sounds like a recipe for a hit don’t you think? So, whether you’re looking to “get the party started” or say “so what” to an ex, P!nk has just the track you need.

Below are my Top 10 favorite P!nk songs of all time, ranked in order.

Girl Talk, 29 year old DJ Gregg Gillis has just released his latest ADD sample mosaic record. Titled “All Day”, GT’s 5th full length album is available for free download from his label’s website: Click here. You can get it in two different flavors: separated into 6 minute bite sized chucks, or collected in one long MP3.

I’ve given the whole thing a listen and I have mixed feelings. Gillis is giving his fans more of what they want, Hip-Hop vocals over 90s alt-rock rifs, 80s ballads mixed with top 40 hits. All your favorite radio friendly celebrities are there, Rihanna, Beyonce, Missy, Miley, L’il Wayne, Drake, and if you listen carefully you may even hear some Willow Smith. Yeah, these tracks are recent.
