And I Bawled…

In: Patrick, Videos

Okay, I recently shared a flash mob dance wedding proposal to you, but here’s another and it seemed to have affected me much more. I love these elaborate, yet so romantic and genuine wedding proposals – so sweet and definitely memorable. I don’t think they’ll be able to top their proposals with their wedding.

This one was just posted yesterday and took place in Madison Square Park. As the video description explains, “after the surprise production number in the park for this girl, they rode off in a horse drawn carriage. In the dance the slip of paper the guys are waving around is a Polaroid. The song the guys dance to was ‘their song.’” So freaking romantic – tear-jerker for sure.

Ziptrek Ecotours

In: Dan, Travel & Leisure

This past weekend a group of girlfriends from work and I headed up to Whistler for a ‘post-wedding bachelorette party’ for one of my best girl’s Jenny celebration (even though we were a little late, it was just another perfect reason to party). The trip started off as a bit of a disaster as we hadn’t even gone five feet from our friend’s doorway when her car ran out of gas. A quick jet to the local gas station and a $20 jerry-can worth of gas later and we were on the road headed to the mountaintop.

A few more hurdles stood in our way before we could enjoy the village and all the hot men Whistler had to offer, including a mis-booked hotel reservation putting all five of us in one room with two double beds. Needless to say I shot-gunned a bed to myself and sent the four women to their side of the room. I kid, of course. Once the room was settled we headed out on the town and took in the local nightlife, hitting up Maxx Fish. I have to say there was something nostalgic about doing tequila shots as 18 year olds dancing to a new mix of California Love by 2Pac, but I digress.

Nu Age LipoLaser

In: Charge It, Sports & Health, Tommy D

I’m not really a firm believer in anything cosmetic. I don’t really get why people under 35 (ok 30 for you gays) would get anything done. Going under the knife, Botox, Restilyne any of that. So when I was given an opportunity to try out Nu Age’s LipoLaser, I was a bit skeptical and kind of standoffish. But it was arranged so I went to check it out.

When I saw down with Alecia, the first question I asked was “What is the deal with this LipoLaser” So she broke it down for me.

LipoLaser while sharing the same name as Liposuction, in my opinion is really nothing alike. It’s kind of a “for lack of a better term” scenario. So I tried it out. Here’s what happens.

First Look: Kylie Minogue – “All The Lovers”

In: Music, Patrick, Videos

Kylie’s music video for her single “All The Lovers,” was released today. The song is the first single off her upcoming album Aphrodite. Well, let this be her Tightey Whitey Aphrodite video, as it features a bunch of men & women in their white undies holding up Kylie in a sensual orgy mosh pit in the middle of a downtown intersection. There’s a white convertible that pulls up, a giant white elephant floating around, and later a white horse… all symbolizing?

The giant pile of peeps has male & female lovers, male & male lovers, and female & female lover all the same.

You’ve got your token Kylie closeups in this video, but one thing that’s missing is dancing. In the lyrics you hear, “Dance, that’s all I wanna do….” So why doesn’t she? I love the segments where she does some simple choreographed dancing in her past videos, as opposed to just waving back & forth, as in this video. All in all, the the video is beautifully shot, Kylie looks great, the people are hot, and the way the whole giant pile of people thing is pretty freaking cool.

The Tribe authorities have spoken! Bruce Beresford-Redman, a producer of the hit premiere reality tv show Survivor, has been officially charged by the Mexican authorities for the murder of his wife, Monica. He was ordered to stay in Mexico, but had returned to LA last week. Now, there’s a warrant for his arrest.

His wife Monica had been found murdered (by strangling) at the Cancun resort they were vacationing at. His wife was hoping that they’d be able to rebuild their relationship after it was discovered that Redman was having an affair with a coworker. They always say that ninety something percent of murders are someone close to the person!

Sorry – no hidden immunity idol for this Villain and his horrible crime – if he did it…

Hurt Locker Lawsuit: It’s On, Pirates!

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Patrick

The producers of Hurt Locker (Voltage Pictures) are suing 5,000 illegal downloaders and demanding a settlement of $1,500 as a penalty for illegally downloading a torrent of their movie. If these people don’t accept the settlement offer, it’s going to Hurt even more as they threaten to go after 10 x the amount if they are put in that position. This is one of the biggest copyright lawsuits ever against individuals. This week, ISPs will be subpoenaed to get the names of the illegal downloaders. Once they have the names & contact info, they’ll be sent letters requesting $1,500 bucks, or be face with a much much bigger penalty.

Hurt Locker leaked 6 months before it’s official US release and people were downloading it at that time. The movie won six Academy Awards, but only grossed just under $17 million. This poor box office cash out is being blamed on the relationship to these illegal downloads.

Do you download movies? Do you think the $1,500 penalty to each of the 5,000 people is fair ($7,500,000)? Do you think this lawsuit will change people’s online behaviors?

Case of “The Mondays?”

In: Patrick, Videos

Mondays can sometimes be kinda bleh. Well, for those of you in the US, you have the day off today for Memorial Day, so maybe it’s not so bad for you. Here in Vancouver, it’s work as usual and to top it off, it’s rainy and gloomy. So what do I recommend? A little laughter. Laughter is the best medicine, as they say…and if that’s the case case, this woman is gonna overdose on her meds.

Check out this hilarious video of this Hungarian women named Eva who cannot stop laughing. She’s not speaking English, so I have no idea what the heck she’s laughing about, but it sounds ridiculously funny. Like yawning, laughter is contagious. I hope this brings a bit of laughter to your day, as it did mine!

This is incredibly great news! The Malawi couple (Steven Monjeza and Tiwonge Chimbalangal – transgender who identifies as a woman) that were sentenced to 14 years of hard labor in prison for getting married have been ordered by the president to be set free, thanks to international protest and Madonna (who started a worldwide petition).

The order for them to be released comes 9 days after their sentencing, but several months after their original arrest. Here’s what Madonna (who had adopted her two sons, David and Mercy from Malawi, had to see about this great news:

“I have always believed love conquers all—yesterday I got to see it in action. In the last week over 30,000 of you added your name to mine calling for the release of Steven Monjeza and Tiwonge Chimbalangal—the Malawi couple sentenced to 14 years hard labor for the “crime” of homosexuality. With incredible joy, I am writing to share with you that Malawi President Bingu wa Mutharika has ordered their release.”
