Tommy is not only a famous promoter, he’s also the face behind the make up when his alter ego SYREN hits the stage. Blessed with a kind heart, and a mouth that not only mimic lyrics, it also speaks the truth constantly!
Before Tommy and I started our one on one, we decided to grab some dinner…drive thru style!
And don’t forget- you get to be the judge…did Tommy LIP SYNC FOR HIS LIFE???
We thought we’d try something summery and fun (think Mojitos on your favourite patio.) Minus the booze, and throw in a bright yellow 2009 MX5.
The concept came about when I realized that so many of us have fallen in love with RuPaul’s Drag Race. Plus, let’s face it, we can all let our hair down from time to time and bust out a tune louder than Adam when he ________! Warmer weather along with a convertible that I recently received from work, we decided to give you: LIP SYNC FOR YA’LIFE!
It’s simple, I’ll take out a few Homorazzi cast members, have a little Q&A while we cruise around Vancouver and finally have the selected cast member lip sync! Three envelopes. One choice. One chance, and the best part? You get to judge….
First up, Patrick
When I first started working out my cardio workouts used to be pretty long – an hour on average. I took the “more is better” approach. For the last ten years or so I’ve been doing what’s commonly referred to as high-intensity interval training, which is a “less is more” approach to cardio training. And I’ve found it to be the most effective & efficient way to burn the most calories and stay lean, particularly if lean doesn’t come naturally to you. I’ll share with you what’s involved – and why it works, if you care. :)
High-intensity interval training is cardio that involves alternating segments of high intensity training (where you push pretty much as hard as you can), followed by a recovery period, typically of the same amount of time. The only kind of cardio I do is outdoor running and it’s the kind I recommend for this type of training (I’ll run on a treadmill only if it’s snowing). I start my run with a slow jog for 5 minutes (my warm up). When I hit the 5 minute mark, I start the timer on my watch – I have it set to beep every 30 seconds. I basically sprint flat out for 30 seconds, and then take 30 seconds to recover, usually jogging at a slow pace. You can walk if necessary, but it’s important to keep moving; when do you a sprint your body compensates by sending more blood to your legs, and if you suddenly stop moving your legs, the blood pools there. Once I’ve completed 10 intervals I cool down for 5 minutes by jogging at a slow pace.
At least once in our lifetime, maybe even two or eight times for the really unlucky ones, you’re going to have to be on both the giving and receiving end of the “I think we should be friends” spiel. There are, of course, several variations and methods of delivering the bad news, but the one part that never changes is, “It’s not you, it’s me.”
I was recently dating this guy. We seemed to be hitting it off somewhat, but yet at some point a wall came up and things got awkward. He called me at work …..AT WORK….. one night to tell me that we were getting too close and he wasn’t looking for anything serious and that we “should just be friends”. He said it in a really rude manner and was very short on the phone. So of course the flaming red hair on my head combusted, and I retorted that I have enough friends, thank you, and hung up the phone. I get home from work a few days later, played out the usual routine of a glass of wine and stalking on facebook, and BAM there it is right in my face. The douche bags’ head line is “in a relationship” with a cute warm fuzzy feeling picture of him and his new girl. I managed to restrain myself and rise above by not writing the most spiteful nastiest message I could think of. I am an adult after all. So instead I guzzled the most delicious bottle of Santa Margerita Pinot Grigio that night and “slept” very well thank you.
So just out of curiosity, I recently asked my cousin’s husband over casual dinner, what all this hubbub was about. Why be so rude about it? He claims that this guy is self conscious because he knows he did something wrong and its his way of defending himself. Interesting. So he does have a conscience.
When one thinks of bulimia, most people associate the female gender with this disorder. Of course, bulimia is not gender specific. But, given the nature of this disorder and that gay men tend to be more concerned with self-image and appearance than the typical straight guy, they are more likely to be susceptible to it.
1998 was a year of great change in my life. I had been living in Canada for 5 years, and had never lived anywhere other than with my parents and brothers. That year, my parents decided that they were going to move back to South Africa. I was in the middle of my degree, and decided that I should stay and finish it. Both my brothers went back with my parents. I moved into an apartment by myself and was alone for the first time. I don’t really remember specifically what the trigger was: it was probably a combination of factors. But, I became obsessed with my body and what I ate.
Josh Hopkins has been on the scene for a while, but is certainly got my attention as Courteney Cox’s love interest in Cougar Town. That’s where I first took notice (well actually, it was my roommate that made me watch the show, and he that was also drooling over Hopkins every time he entered a scene – especially the shirtless ones. Hopkins plays Grayson Ellis, Cox’s neighbor and friend. They cross the lines to become friends with benefits after hooking up once…and have now recently decided to give the relationship thing a shot. Hopkins will be the big 4-0 in September – looking incredible for his age!
His first big show was opposite Ally McBeal where he played Raymond Millbury. He has since done his rounds on several shows including: Cold Case, Brothers & Sisters, CSI Miami, Private Practice, and of course more prominently in Cougar Town.
She played softball. What would Betty White‘s SNL character say in this situation? “Because she’s a lesbian!” Well, apparently so would mainstream media.
Cable News Wonders: If A Judicial Nominee Plays Softball, Does That Make Her Gay? That’s the title of this compilation video of all of the recent media surrounding the supposed sexuality of Elena Kagan, the Solicitor General of the United States and a Supreme Court Judge nominee. A photo of her playing softball 17 years ago has surfaced, and the media is saying that because she can play a mean game of softball, it is a tell tale sign that she is a lesbian. RIDICULOUS!
People are so ignorant! See for yourselves!
