If you’re an avid reader of the site, you know I usually write about fluffy entertainment news. Hearing this latest tragedy, prompted me to get more serious. 18-year old Tyler Clementi is the fourth gay teen in the past month to commit suicide. 13-year-old Seth Walsh in Tehachapi, California. Asher Brown, 13, of Cypress, Texas and 15-year-old Billy Lucas in Greensberg, Indiana all took their owns lives due to bullying and teasing they endured because of their sexuality. Just when you think we were moving forward in our fight for equality, incidents like this give us a HUGE wake up call that we are still a long way away.

Clementi was a student at Rutgers University in New Jersey. Before he jumped off the George Washington Bridge he changed his Facebook status to “Jumping off the gw bridge sorry.”

Fellow students Dharun Ravi who was also his roommate and Molly Wei allegedly placed a camera in their room. The images were then streamed directly on the internet. The following was a tweet Ravi posted on the microblogging site: “Roommate asked for the room till midnight. I went into molly’s room and turned on my webcam. I saw him making out with a dude. Yay.

Ravi and Wei are both charged with invasion of privacy and could face up to five years in prison if convicted. I debated posting their FB profile pics or linking to them here, but decided against it for the following reason. When I first heard about this heartbreaking news, I searched for Clementi on FB. What I found was a memorial set up individuals who cared for him deeply.

While there was an outpouring of condolences, sympathy and kind words for the family, I was disgusted by certain individuals who wrote hateful comments about Clementi’s sexuality and that he was probably rotting in hell because he was gay. What in a person’s head provokes them to actively search out a memorial and post such hate while a family is suffering? What was even more disturbing, was a few of the comments came from young adults. I honestly thought the younger generation was far more tolerant and educated.

Movie Review: the social network

In: Donovan, Movies

“You don’t get to 500 million friends without making a few enemies.” That statement pretty much sums it. If there was one huge massive LIKE button, big enough to declare my love for this movie, I would use it. It’s very rare to go into a movie with high expectations, only to leave the theater feeling even more satisfied than you could’ve imagined.

“the social network” is a motion picture adapted from Ben Mezrich’s 2009 book, “The Accidental Billionaires“. The film focuses on the early years of Facebook which was founded in 2004. To say those years were tumultuous is a huge understatement. Funny enough what set the ball in motion, was the heartache co-founder Mark Zuckerberg felt from being dumped by his then girlfriend, Erica.

If you don’t know how Facebook came out of that experience, I’m not going to spoil it for you. Going into the movie, I had a vague idea of the history of Facebook and glad I didn’t know anymore. Within minutes, I was enthralled and curious how this one fateful night changed not only Zuckerberg’s life but all of ours. Facebook has become such an integral part of our daily lives, you would be remiss not to know more about it. I’m not exaggerating when I say, it’s a must-see.

This Is Not A Joke

In: Patrick, Politics & Issues, Random Reads, Totally GAY!

With all of the young men killing themselves because of the homophobic people around them, 50 Cent thinks he’s funny by Tweeting the above message. I don’t even know what to say to that. I could say whoever shot him 9 times had bad aim, but that would not be appropriate.

This guy doesn’t deserve his celebrity, fame, and fortune. The guy is spreading hate and encouraging people to kill themselves. He’s not even worth a dollar, and he knows it. He’s worth 50 Cents. Not even.

Thank you Twitter for allowing this Twit to post the type of hate garbage that he does.

Gracing the cover of Marie Claire UK for November 2010 is a very sexy and smoldering Lea Michele. On “Glee“, Michele plays Rachel Berry who’s notorious for “somehow managing to dress like a grandmother and a toddler at the same time”. On the cover and inside editorial photo fashion layout of Marie Claire, she is anything but. Lea is all kinds of FIERCE in the photoshoot. It’s hard to believe, but the petite actress almost look statuesque in a few of the photos.

What Do You Want To Do Before You Die?

In: Calan, TV Shows

I’m sure everyone has heard of a “bucket list.” This list is composed of things you want to accomplish in your life before you die. One of my new favorite shows takes this to the extreme. I fell in love with The Buried Life last year in its first season on MTV and today was the season 2 premier. I had completely forgot about the show so I must thank my PVR for saving me on this one and taping it for me. For starters they are Canadian home grown boys from Victoria, BC and secondly they are all very cute in their own way (my personal favorite being hottie Ben Nemtin, the creator of the show.)

Synopsis:

“The series focuses on four friends (Duncan, Ben, Dave, and Jonnie) as they travel across North America in a purple transit bus to complete a list of “100 things to do before you die.” For every item they complete on their list, they help a stranger achieve one of their dreams and encourage others to go after their own lists. Everywhere they go they ask the question: What do you want to do before you die?”

I’m loving the Apprentice much more than Celebrity Apprentice – way more intense! To fill you in, if you didn’t watch the last couple episodes, nobody really respects James on the guys team (Octane) and David is incredibly intense and needs anger management. Meanwhile, Liza is the outcast on the ladies team (Fortitude) and Mahsa is the token biatch. Now you know.

In this task, the teams are working with a Hotel & Spa for Dogs. Love it!. They have to develop a value add and are judged on execution, creatiion & sustability of the value add, and the overall experience. Cesar Millan (AKA The Dog Whisperer is one of the judges, along with two of the spa owners). James is going to be the project manager for Octane (nightmare) and Tyana is going to be the project manager for Fortitude. Love.

SYTYCDC Season 3: Top 12 Eliminations

In: TV Shows, Tyrell

Welcome back Canada. The dancers left their hearts on the floor to prove to you that they are worthy of being in your Top 10! The evening begins with one of the most amazing routines from Mia Michaels. WOW! The routine is set on the song Will I? from the musical RENT. You can tell Mia pulled the best out of all of these dancers tonight. This routine was stunning. From the emotion, to the execution, to the connection between the twelve of them, this routine will be one I remember from the entire season. If you PVR’d it like I did, I will be watching it over and over again. Leah calls Mia on stage and thanks her for her creation… and says she is proud of her. Bizarre? Absolutely.

Leah reminds us that auditions for Season 4 are coming around the corner so get ready Canada. Leah explains that the bottom 3 couples are determined by your votes and then after the solos performed by the bottom 6 dancers, the judges will make the decision of which guy and which girl will be going home.

Man Crush: David Loren

In: Donovan, Movies

You’ve probably never heard of this week’s crush before, but David Loren is definitely worth knowing. Earlier this week, I watched an indie gay movie, “Is It Just Me?“. While most independent gay cinema isn’t the greatest quality, I found this romantic gay comedy extremely charming and a pleasant surprise. Loren plays a hot newly transplanted Los Angeleno looking for love in the City of Angels. You’ll have to check out my movie review, coming in the next few days.

David Loren was born and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He received his BA in Theatre from the University of Tulsa. Soon after graduating, he moved to LA to pursue acting. He’s found work in a number of web series, independent films and television shows. Some of his TV credits include guest stints on “The Event“, “The Mentalist“, “Without A Trace” and regular web series roles on “Sorority Fever” and “Prom Queen“.

The 5’9″ stud interests include football, baseball, backpacking, sarcasm, watching old movies, listening to film scores, reading and writing. I love me a hot nerd. On his acting resume, he includes hip-hop and modern as part of his skills. Would love to see him shake his thang.
