Nicole Previews Her “Killer Love” LP

In: Music, Tyrell

Nicole Scherzinger has had quite the struggle to release her first solo project. She started work on My Name Is Nicole back in 2008 and after having the release pushed back numerous times into 2009, Nicole finally shelved the project citing creative issues as one of its reasons for cancellation. I’m also assuming it was due to poor chart performance.Nicole began to re-record the entire project in the beginning of 2010 enlisting RedOne to produce most of the album. Enrique Iglesias and Sting also make an appearance on the album.

The EP contains a majority of up-tempo tracks with a few Nicole ballads thrown in. Although her first single, Poison didn’t perform extremely well in North America, it got a lot of buzz across the pond. Her second single produced by Dave Aude titled Don’t Hold Your Breath had its video leak online early giving us a glimpse into more of what the album would sound like.

Okay, so this Behind the Cast is a brief flash back to a previous time in my life – when I was in university at the University of British Columbia (UBC) and was part of the school’s varsity cheerleading team. Yes folks, I was a cheerleader. It was the closest thing to gymnastics at UBC and I was dared to give it a shot. Who knew I would fall in love with the sport and the legitimate competitive nature of it all! What’s not to love about Cheerleading? Sure it’s appearance is fluffiness, stupidity and pointless; but honestly, it isn’t like that at all! It’s truly a collection of hot/ripped men throwing cute girls in tiny skirts into the air. Most people are surprised at the athleticism of it all!

As I write this, I should be clear that this article isn’t mean to appear as me taking a stance at those people who disapprove of cheerleading and pep rallies, but in turn to finally get the publics opinion on an eight-year long dispute. In 2003 the official cheerleading tournament, Best in the West was held in British Columbia and several universities and colleges were represented from Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia. The final two performances were from two BC universities who had dueled it out at Canadian Cheerleading Nationals in Toronto only a few short months before. The two rival schools were UBC and Simon Fraser University (SFU). I myself was on the UBC team and my colleague and close friend Danielle was on the SFU team.

Book Review: Secret Daughter

In: Dan, Random Reads

For the last few weeks I have disappointingly fallen off the book reading bandwagon. This lack of literature in my life was in large part to a five-day whirlwind adventure to Vegas and needless to say, Sin City doesn’t provide a lot of room or time for reading, despite all the lights. Since returning home to Vancouver I thankfully fell back into my regular rhythm and quickly picked up where I originally left off in my reading of Canadian author Shilpi Somaya Gowda’s inspirational and emotionally charged novel, Secret Daughter.

A coworker recommended this book to me and she forewarned me that it would most definitely spark a few emotions in me, mainly grief, and would undoubtedly help a few tears fall down my cheeks. Let that be my warning to you, as a fellow reader, that this novel is not one for public transit on your morning commutes. It’s best left for your reading prior to falling asleep at night, or wrapped in a blanket by yourself on a Sunday afternoon. With that said, I fully recommend that everyone reading these words pick up this book and tackle it at soon as you possibly can. Then, tell everyone you know about this book, and pay it forward.

Lady Gaga & Taylor Swift Get Mashed

In: Music, Patrick, Videos

Superstar blondies, Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift songs had been mashed together by DJ Mashup and one superfan (TraceyRemix) took it upon herself to create this amazing video to complement “Alejandro’s Song“. There are mashup videos, and there there’s this video where they are actually blended together seamlessly to look like the two were in each others videos. It’s so well done!

Through the amazing editing, we see the two singing together on stage, chatting on the phone, snuggling on the couch, and much more throughout the video. Check it out!

Recently, it was announced that Two and a Half Men was going on hiatus because of hot mess Charlie Sheen‘s drug & alcohol problem interfering with his job. Sheen has been going public and talking to the press a lot, giving people a glimpse at how crazy and delusional this man is. So Funny or Die took this as an opportunity to poke fun at the story by having Jerry O’Connell audition to replace Charlie Sheen in the show.

O’Connell’s impersonation of Sheen is bang on, as his audition spirals out of control, going on one of Sheen’s nonsensical rants and hits on the “goddess” audition reader. “WINNING!” Check out the video below. You even get to see O’Connell pull up his shirt and show off his “situation” during the video as well.

Who Should Be The Next Jason Bourne?

In: Donovan, Movies

With a production start date fast approaching for the fourth installment of the Jason Bourne movie, things are kicking into high gear to find a new leading man. With Matt Damon leaving the spy franchise, Universal Studios & the film’s writer-director, Tony Gilroy, are meeting with some of Hollywood’s hot young leading men to replace Damon.

I should probably clarify that, no one is actually replacing Matt Damon and playing the role of Jason Bourne. Instead, “The Bourne Legacy” will focus on a new character who’s been trained and programmed like Jason Bourne. This way Matt Damon can do cameos or anchor any future Bourne movie should he decide to return. The role is one of Hollywood’s must-get and lucrative part for young actors. With the three Bourne movies grossing almost $1 billion combined, the part will elevate whomever gets it, to new heights.

He may be out of rehab but perhaps after this incident, he should go to driving school? Yesterday afternoon, David Arquette was involved in a car accident in Hollywood. David was driving a smaller Cadillac when the car in front of him allegedly braked suddenly. David apparently swerved to the left into oncoming traffic to avoid rear-ending the car which in turn, caused a head-on collision.

According to reports, David got out of his badly damaged vehicle and went to lay on some grass by a curb close to the scene. Witnesses say that he laid there until the ambulance attended to him. One witness says that Arquette was bleeding.

Minerva, a small Mexican brewery, is marketing a beer specifically to the gay and lesbian market. They are claiming their two beers are the world’s first Queer Beers. Purple Hand Beer and Salamandra are both brewed with 100% organic honey and malt. It’s a recipe that “infuses the beer with a citrus flavor that appeals to the taste of the LGBT community”.

“We’re out in the market with great respect with the idea of offering a product directed to the gay-lesbian community that has been ignored for too long but is important and very demanding,” – company spokesperson Dario Rodriguez Wyler

Purple Hand and Salamandra are already available at resorts in Puerto Vallarta and Los Cabos. They can also be found at some restaurants and bars in Guadalajara, Mexico City. Unfortunately, the Queer Beers are not available in the United States, though the company has claimed they’ve received requests from Argentina, Ecuador, Japan, Chile along with the US. But not everyone is happy about the gay marketing. Surprisingly they’ve been accused of reverse homophobia by some heteros.
