The NEW Apple iPod Nano

In: Charge It, Gadgets & Tech, Tyrell

When it comes to Holiday gift giving, I try and always be thoughtful and think about buying my friends and family something that will really suit their lifestyle and their personality. In all honesty, I’m the worst at Christmas shopping. Every year I have full intentions of starting early, making my list, checking it twice. But like every male in my family, I’ve inherited the lovely style of Christmas Eve last minute shopping. You’d think after the first few times of doing this and feeling the stress of finding those gifts so late in the night I’d stop doing this. Alas, I fall victim every year.

So this year, I actually am getting a head start on my shopping and feel great about it. What I didn’t realize is that there are so many holiday gift guides out there showing you what’s hot on everyone’s list. So I decided to write a bunch of articles featuring different products to help you guys out with your Christmas shopping. You can compile your favorites and eventual you will have your Ultimate Gift Guide.

Susan Boyle To Sing At Royal Wedding?

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Donovan

If Simon Cowell gets his way, then yes. The former American Idol Judge told Extra that the YouTube singing sensation would be an ideal choice to sing at Prince William & Kate Middleton’s Royal Wedding in April. He also added Susan Boyle’s version of “Dreamed a Dream” would be the perfect choice for a wedding song. Personally, “Back That Ass Up” would a much better idea. It’ll throw everyone off and add a little flava to the mix. I kid.

So what makes Cowell such an expert on this topic. Apparently, the acerbic judge and Prince William are “friends” and he noted the royals are fans of “X-Factor“. Here’s what he said

“I’m actually friends with Prince Harry. Well, I wouldn’t say friends, per se, but he’s come down to the show,” Cowell said. “He and I get along very well. He’s a very, very nice guy. I like him a lot.”

On a recent episode of Conan O’Brien‘s late show, the host talked about Oprah’s Ultimate Favorite Things and her two part big giveaway this past week. The host brings up the fact that it seems that Oprah is running out of ideas for her favorite things list and he has some footage of one the gifts she gave away that wasn’t shown on the air.

The following video clip from the show is hilarious, and of course may actually explain some of the outrageous reactions given by the wacky audience and all the “buzz” it created.

Put A Netflix Subscription In Their Stocking

In: Charge It, Tyrell

In preparation for your holiday gift shopping, you know there aren’t only presents to put under the tree but also stockings to stuff. For me, this is the task I find the most difficult. Growing up, my mom was always in charge of stuffing the stockings that hung from our mantel above the fireplace. Inside, we would find socks, candies, and little trinkets. As the years went on and we got older, the task got harder for her I’m sure. Body washes, colognes and other things began to appear in the stocking.

Nowadays, we live in a society where everyone just usually goes and buys whatever they need and want. This includes regular household items such as body washes and colognes. So I always ponder what to put inside a stocking other than the most lamest, fall back and last resort plan: the gift card. But then it hit me, why not give a subscription to Netflix? Its perfect!

Let’s dive right into this week’s Sports Stud, highlight the stunning men of sports. Matthew Mitcham made a splash when he won the gold for Australia at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, making him the first Australian male to win an Olympic gold medal in diving since 1924. A fellow Pisces (I only know this because his birthday is a day after mine), he’s also a fellow gay as well and was one of only a few openly gay athletes at the 2008 Summer Olympics. This past year, he won four silver medals at the 2010 Commonwealth Games.

During the 2008 Olympics, he graced the cover of the The Advocate as well as Australia’s DNA Magazine. His boyfriend, Lachlan Fletcher, attended the games as a spectator, supporting his man. He first came out in the Sydney Morning Herald before heading to the Olympics, making him the first Australian to do so.

He is currently studying French and Spanish at Sydney University and training of course.

Fashion: Lanvin for H&M

In: Charge It, Fashion, Redd

Probably one of the most anticipated collaborations in H&M history to date, the Lanvin collection for H&M truly is inspiring and beautiful. I’ve seen all the past collaborations and wasn’t really impressed as I am with Lanvin. Alber Elbaz is a true fashion genius! The collection does not skimp on style and look just as good as their haute couture counterparts.

“To see it on the catwalk tonight styled by Alber, in his own way, is totally and utterly inspirational.”
– Hilary Alexander, The Daily Telegraph

“The show was so much fun. It is hard to impress this crowd and everybody was like laughing and clapping and it was great, it was really amazing!”
– Elettra Wiedemann, Model

Check out the The official event video from the Lanvin H&M event & runway show at The Pierre Hotel in New York City, November 18th on the next part of the post.

You know I love me some indies and nothing screams random independent like a movie who’s original title doesn’t even register in the top search results on IMDB. Add to that a thriller directed by the infamous- to nerds like me- Christopher Smith of “Creep”, “Triangle” and “Severance“, (the latter two I’ve coincidentally lavished with rave reviews)- and you have “Black Death”. And, despite the terribly ominous and slightly blasé title, this one performs on all levels.

During the raging plague (or black death) of medieval England, only one small village claims to remain untouched by the rampant disease and instead of flocking to the haven for help, the Crown sends a band of mercenaries led by a self-proclaimed “holy knight” to enlist a local monk and search out the healthy town and hunt down the witches who must be behind the town’s immunity… While it sounds eye-rollingly typical of a period piece to blame the secular, the women and the poor, this puppy has an is-it-or-isn’t-it divine intervention twist as the unscathed are found to be heathens who pray to mother earth rather than the at-the-time required God almighty. A mix between “Heart of Darkness”, Kurtz’s journey into madness and Haneke’s creepy-ville “White Ribbon”, this tale of bloodied machismo frenzies and sexualized ladies is a definite must see for those lookin’ to snoobishly throw around their modern-cinema references at even the most emo of shindigs.
