TRON Leaves Legacy At The Box Office

In: Movies, Patrick

This weekend, Tron: Legacy, took over the box office with a whopping $43.6 million. The 80s remake captivated audiences with the sexy lead, Garrett Hedlund, combined with the cool special effects. As Donovan put it, “Like the original the special effects are bar none and the acting is pretty good as well.”
Trailing behind in second this weekend was none other than Yogi Bear, with the voices of Dan Aykroyd and Justin Timberlake. The film debuted with $16.7 million at the box office, which isn’t too shabby all things considered.

In my opinion, it was a disappointing opening weekend for How Do You Know, considering how hard they were pushing the flick. I saw ads everywhere – bus stops, websites, TV…everywhere I looked. I guess people weren’t in the mood for a romantic comedy this weekend. Did you watch any of the following movies this weekend?

Say It Ain’t So, Lo

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Tyrell

For all you die hard The Hills fans out there, I have some devastating news for you. And, if you’re reaction is half as good as Patrick‘s was, then telling you will be worth it too. Let me take you back to an episode mid-way through the final season. Lo Bosworth and Scott Hochstadt go on an anniversary dinner date. Between courses, Scott asks Lo to move in with him. She’s hesitant. She’s says that if she’s going to move in with a guy, it has to be with the one she knows she will marry. She leaves Scott on hold with the answer to the question.

Fast forward to the end of the season where the girls are reminiscing about the year they’ve had. Lo announces to the group that she will be moving in with Scott. The girls get all giddy and excited at the fact that this means Lo will soon be having little babies. Well, I have to break it to you, but the honeymoon has ended. Scott and Lo, after two years of bliss, have called it quits. Cue Patrick’s enormous gasp…

Recently, Homorazzi was invited to participate in a photoshoot for the Heath Initiative For Men’s (HIM) latest campaign, centered around drawing awareness to HIM’s new website: http://checkhimout.ca/. In case you are unfamiliar, here is the mission of HIM:

“Our mission is to strengthen gay men’s health and well-being through trusted, tailored,
targeted research-based health promotion services and by engaging the community through
volunteer involvement, online access and events. We foster mutually-beneficial relationships
among gay men and health professionals to ensure the best possible outcomes.

We do this because we value the ability of gay men to make informed decisions, we value the
role of our community in supporting the foundations for healthy living, and we value scientific
research.”

In 2008, more than half of new HIV infections in British Columbia occurred among men
who have sex with men. In Vancouver, the number is as high as 66%. It is great that HIM is here to educate and help men make smart, safe choices in their lives.

In the photoshoot for the campaign that we were a part of, the shoots were segmented into four separate categories: Physical Health, Social Health, Mental Health, and Sexual Health. We were asked to help out with the Social Health part, shown in the shot below. (From left to right, Homorazzi’s Tyrell, Patrick, Tommy and Adam.)

Survivor 21 Nicaragua: Who’s Going To Win?

In: Patrick, TV Shows

With only five remaining Survivors in the Outwit, Outlast, Outplay battle for a million dollars, it’s anybody’s game – sort of. The two hour finale is tonight where one of the final five will be crowned the sole Survivor of the 21st Season. The final five include Chase, Holly, Sash, Fabio and Dan.

Which of the Final Five do you want to win Survivor 21 Nicaragua?

At the last tribal council, it was brought out in the open that Chase, Holly, and Sash had a three way alliance and that Fabio and Dan were next on the chopping block. Essentially, the two outsiders need to win immunity or they are toast. I have a hunch that Fabio can pull it off, but Dan has no chance. Even if Dan were to make it to the finals, I don’t think he could win considering he never helped win any challenges and I don’t think he needs the money if he wore $1500 shoes to play Survivor in.

First off, let’s give credit where credit is due: my good n’ gorgeous friend Dave (once a writer for Homorazzi) is the sole reason I know about this song and so to him I say “Thank you and you’re dead to me.” Why is he dead to me you ask? Well, me bursting into tears while driving rush hour to my volunteering this Wednesday wasn’t exactly the way I thought I’d start my day. Here’s the back story.

This past weekend, the Homorazzi cast got together to celebrate hitting a million pageviews in November and had a gay ol’ time hanging out, gingerbread makin’ and of course enjoying some 19+ libations. By the end of the night, most of the mo’s headed upstairs to sing some American Idol as we are oft to do while Brian, Dave, his boyfriend and I stayed downstairs to discuss politics, the economy and philosophy… … I’m kidding, we made fun of the boys upstairs and watched music videos ;)

Rockin’ the Apple TV, Dave asked Brian if he could borrow the big screen to premiere a new fave gay vid of his: my first reaction was to eye roll my ass outta there. To explain, I have this weird thing about watching gay movies or videos as I have some insane knee-jerk reaction to get jealous of whatever cute boy ends up with the handsome hunk by the end of the story. I’m crazy, I know. BUT, I am more than happy to say I forced myself to watch and am a better man for it. The song is: “Gay Pirates” by Cosmo Jarvis. It’s the story of two male lovers during, let’s say the 1600s, who are tortured for their taboo love by their fellow pirates. Don’t laugh- these lyrics and video will change what you want in a man and just might bring a tear to your eye too.

100G For Shaun G Celebration Concert

In: Dave

I attended the 100G for Shaun G event on Tuesday, December 14th at the Commodore Ballroom. It was an impressive and interesting mix of music artists and DJ’s that came together to raise money for the newly formed “Shaun G Foundation,” a Vancouver movement to fight cancer. Shaun G (Gauthier) was an event promoter, half of the duo “Pedro and Shaun‘- aka Soulgood, and he was also involved with event planning, working with Molson Coors Canada and with Bacardi. Shaun recently lost his battle to an extremely rare form of cancer called Angiosarcoma, a cancer that only on average 2 Canadians a year are diagnosed with. Shockingly, Shaun only became sick, and was diagnosed a few weeks prior to succumbing to the disease.

I don’t recall whether I have ever attended an event that Soulgood threw, but I can assume by the group that attended this event that they likely attracted hot and fun people. I had a great evening listening to new music, meeting new people and downing a few cocktails (all for charity of course). There were also some sad/touching speeches and shout outs to Shaun and his family by the musicians and hosts of the evening.

Senate Ends DADT

In: Patrick, Politics & Issues, Totally GAY!

Today, the U.S. Senate voted 65-31 to end Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell – finally, after the policy that has banned gay and lesbian from being open & honest about their sexuality in the military has been in place for 17 years. Joe Solmonese, president of the Human Rights Campaign, told the Huffington Post, “The important thing today is that 63 senators were on the right side of history” and that he sees the vote as a “stepping stone to further advances for the gay and lesbian community.”

Moving forward, gays in the military will not be force to lie about who they are to defend their country. Furthermore, the military promises to not judge people based on their sexuality, but only on their performance.
