Commence Dragulation: RuPaul’s Drag U

In: Alex, TV Shows

I don’t know where to start.  I can’t.  It’s too much.  Too much AMAZINGNESS.

Since this is the first post on Drag U – bare with me as I explain the premise of the show…Last night the LOGO channel premiered RuPaul’s latest foray into the world of reality TV, RuPaul’s Drag U and it did not disappoint.  Drag U brings a twist to the typical Drag Race formula in that instead of professional drag queens competing for for huge prize, former contestants of Drag Race help deserving women (who are a little rough around the edges) come out of their shells and rediscover their femininity.  And who better to teach you how to be a real woman than a group of fierce queens?

The show takes place in Lake Titicaca Valley, a magical land where rainbows, unicorns and dolphins fill the sky (tacky as hell and fabulous).  Contestants arrive at Drag U to be greeted by RuPaul (dressed in her suit) and then are assigned to their drag professors.  Ru explains that the women will be given 48 hours to build their skills and prepare for their dragzaminations where they will be judged on their drag transformation, performance and attitude adjustment – their DPA (Drag Point Average) if you will.  The night ends at Draguation, where the women (the ones with vajajays) compete to win the top honor of graduating highest in class along with a pretty sweet prize package (nyx cosmetics, stay at the ace hotel palm springs, healthy eating meal plan and a portable hot tub).  Keep reading for a recap of last night’s episode.

Top 10 All Time Worst Songs of Summer

In: Music, Patrick

While we spend a lot of time focusing on what songs you should add to your playlist for the summer, Time Magazine has decided to highlight the Top 10 Worst Songs of the Summer – the songs you just wish you could get out of your head already! “I just can’t get you outta my head,” as Kylie would say. Don’t worry, she’s not on the list. As I go through the list below, I’ll give you my own two cents on the song along with my favorite part of the explanation from Time Magazine as to why the song made the list.

10. Katy Perry – California Gurls
In terms of songs you hear everywhere this summer and that you just want out of your head, this is definitely one of them. I do like the song, but not when it’s over played. On the flipside, I hated the video. Cute to use a Candyland theme but if you’re calling your song California Gurls and releasing knowing it is going to be a summer song, what the heck does your video have to do with the beach?
Fave Time Magazine Quote: “The music video for ‘California Gurls,’ the so-called 2010 song of the summer, is just the icing on the cake of this terrible tune.”

Woman Pregnant…In TWO Uteruses

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Patrick

A 34 year old Utah woman is pregnant with two babies…and they’re not twins. They weren’t even conceived at the same time! Angie Cromar, a labor and delivery nurse herself, has a double uterus (uterus didelphys) and they are both knocked up. One is five weeks and four days along, while the other is six weeks and one day. Essentially, they are due one week apart.

According to the Mayo Clinic, not surprisingly, women who have this condition are more likely to miscarry (aww!) or deliver a baby prematurely.

Modern Family To Shake Things Up

In: Patrick, TV Shows

One of my favorite comedies on TV, Modern Family has divulged a big secret for Season 2. In one of the episodes, the families will go through an earthquake, and the audience will see how each of the families reacts (or overreacts for that matter). When you live in a place like LA or Vancouver (where I am), “The Big One” in reference to a mother of an earthquake, is in the back of your mind. A terrifying and tragic day it will be when that day comes, but Modern Family has chosen to highlight the comedy of each of the households reacting to the extreme act of Mother Nature.

Steven Levitan, the show’s co-creator shares some Season 2 details, and how it relates to his life. In one of the episodes, Phil (Ty Burrell) and Claire (Julie Bowen) have a running argument that Levitan and his wife have over the quickest way to get home from a restaurant: “That race becomes a story.” A lot of what happens in each of the writer’s own lives comes through in the show’s storylines.

First Look: Wynter Gordon “Dirty Talk” Video

In: Music, Patrick, Videos

The song has been out for some time, and now the snow melt’s with Wynter Gordon‘s debut music video. The video for her hit single, “Dirty Talk” was directed by Armen Djerrahian and begins with a nerdy school girl version of Gordon lusting over a guy, as she wanders into the forest to the lyrics, “I am no angel…I like it when you talk, talk, dirty, when you talk talk, dirty talk.” She trips & falls and that’s where the fairy tale “magic” happens, as she turns into a more sexified version of herself. She then finds these sexy blond woodland creatures peaking behind the trees (well, they find her), and one of the girls/fairies proceeds to whisper naughty things in her ear. One thing leads to another and they find themselves on the beach with this Asian guy dancing around a bonfire – pre-orgy I’m sure.

The film is pretty low budget, but I found that I was captivated by the “story,” at least to find out what happened next. This as opposed to a music video that show the artist singing in random settings the whole way through, with no uniform theme or storyline that brings it all together.

The video is for her first single from her upcoming debut album called “With The Music I Die.” Deep/Dark.

Celebrity Rehab Season 4: Meet The Trainwrecks

In: Donovan, TV Shows

VH1 just announced the newest cast of Celebrity Rehab with Doctor Drew. Jeremy London, Janice Dickinson and Jason Wahler are just three of the latest “celebrities” to go through detoxification and treatment at the Pasadena Recovery Center. The show originally was supposed debut sooner than late 2010, but the show had trouble finding big name addicts willing to air their dirty laundry and showcase their withdrawal symptoms. Seriously, who would want to participate in tear-filled group sessions on primetime TV? Even Tila Tequila had enough sense to drop out after initially committing to the show.

You knew the minute Jeremy London’s “kidnapping” slash forced to smoke marijuana ordeal made headlines everywhere, he’d show up in this orchestrated public mea culpa. It’s so sad how the former Party of Five hottie, was unable to translate his early success to a long-term career. On the flip side, I’m surprised it took this long for former supermodel and ANTM judge Janice Dickinson to seek counseling from Dr. Drew. To be perfectly honest, if I had to spend a summer in the jungle with Spiedi, I ‘d probably have a substance problem as well. I can’t even count how many reality shows this marks for Miss Janice. Looks like she has a famewhore addiction too.

Another person I’m surprised is finally taking action is Lauren Conrad’s former beau, Jason Wahler. The former Hills star has been arrested multiple times for DUI and was even holed up in a Mexican jail for a while. I’m sure he was a popular “toy” during his incarceration.

N2N Bodywear Swimwear Review

In: Charge It, Donovan, Fashion

Since 1997, Los Angeles based N2N Bodywear has created swimwear apparel for the gay traveler and adventurous metrosexual. Swimwear doesn’t get any gayer SLASH skimpier than this. N2N Bodywear isn’t for the faint-hearted. You’re definitely an exhibitionist, work hard on your body and have no qualms letting it all out.

Designer Andrew Makay’s vision was to offer swimwear that made his customers feel special and sexy while embracing the male physique to the fullest. His mission statement is “to provide the most comfortable, quality apparel to make any man feel masculine, sexy, and confident.” In my opinion, you have to be all three to successfully pull off some of their designs.

Netflix Coming To Canada

In: Gadgets & Tech, Movies, Random Reads, Topher

About f’ing time!

Netflix announced on Monday that they will be expanding their service for the first time outside of the U.S. The Canadian service which will feature streaming T.V. shows and movies directly to your computer / T.V. will be released this fall. First in English, and secondly in French.

Unlike the service Netflix provides in the States, the Canadian version will be streaming only, so no DVD distribution. I think that’s perfect. Canada already has Zip.ca for a mail-order option. I mean, they suck, and it’s almost impossible to get new releases, but they exist.
