What is a teeterboard you ask? It’s an acrobatic apparatus that resembles a playground seesaw. Sometimes it’s referred to as a Korean plank.
Earlier this week, I stumbled upon this wicked teeterboard training video uploaded by David James Rimmer (pictured top left). He’s a former artistic gymnast who now works for Cirque Du Soleil. Rimmer along with fellow acrobat Stéphane Beauregard perform some death-defying stunts on the teeterboard which is used partly in the Cirque show Corteo.
The heights these two reach and flips executed are truly remarkable. The highlight for me though is when Stéphane finishes the session off by nearly faceplanting on Rimmer’s crotch. I’m sure that wasn’t planned ;) Check out the video below.
How many chances does a guy get? Gotta give Matthew Perry credit for being so resilient and forge ahead despite numerous failures. If I was him, I’d just sit back and enjoy those Friends royalties. Right?
Since the classic NBC sitcom signed off, Perry has headlined three failed series- two on NBC, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip (2006) and Go On (2012) and one over at ABC, Mr. Sunshine (2011). This time, he’s hoping to have better luck over at CBS.
The 44-year-old is working on a new version of Neil Simon’s Broadway classic, The Odd Couple. The play was previously adapted into a successful TV series back in the 70s starring Jack Klugman and Tony Randall. Mad About You‘s Danny Jacobson is the writer on the project. Perry will play Oscar Madison, the messy curmudgeon one.
Given that TIME Magazine chose Pope Francis as their “Person of the Year” earlier this week and it being the Sabbath, it’s the perfect day for this post.
Even though these sexy men of the cloth are fully clothed, there is no hiding their sex appeal. Unlike those faux almost-naked clergymen in the 2014 Orthodox Calendar, these Catholic priests are the real deal.
Photographer Piero Pazzi states he meets most of them on the streets in Rome during Holy Week. He reveals that “most are happy to be photographed after I tell them the reason for the calendar.” What’s the reason?
Pazzi claims the portraits are purely intended to promote the Eternal City and inform visitors about the Vatican. Ummm, okay!!! LOL. Speaking for myself, I had inappropriate Thorn Birds-like emotions after seeing a couple of these holy men. Check them out below and see if you get tingly sensations as well.
This year marks the tenth anniversary of the release of Love Actually. Though numerous attempts around the world have been filmed to recreate the special magic found in the original including Garry Marshall’s Valentine’s Day and New Years Eve, none have succeeded.
Naturally, when I read Love Actually 2, I was instantly intrigued and excited. Sadly though, it turned out to be just a fan-made trailer parody. With that being said, it’s an excellent one at that. This fanboy or fangirl masterfully compiles footage from the cast’s post-Actually work into a storyline, albeit far-fetched, but a storyline nonetheless.
It’s not easy incorporating scenes from Bad Santa, The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, Taken, The King’s Speech, Mammia Mia, Mad Men, The Hobbit and more to craft a worthy sequel to Love Actually. Check out the wonderfully ridiculous clip below.
Although we’ve written about him on Homorazzi a few times, we’ve never actually featured New Zealand Olympic Speed Skater Blake Skjellerup as a Sports Stud until now. Back in 2010, he came out after the 2010 Winter Olympic Games and has been preparing for the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi since. In Vancouver, he had placed 16th in the 1000-meter.
According to OutSports.com, earlier this week Skjellerup unfortunately fell short of qualifying for the 2014 Olympic Games by one spot. The handsome athlete was set to be the first openly gay male athlete in history to compete in the Winter Olympics. This was especially poingnant given Russia’s views towards gays and lesbians. As of now, there will be no publicly out male athletes competing in Sochi. That being said, because Skjellerup placed 33rd in rankings for the 500-meter, he’s the first alternate for the games. Therefore, if any of the nations that have qualified decide not to send an athlete to the games, Skjellerup will get to go. For the 1000-meter, he is said to be the fifth or sixth alternate.
Earlier this month, I interviewed Skjellerup because we had chosed to featured him as the Masc’d Man of the Month at my skincare & grooming store/webstore, MASC. In the interview (which you can read here), he talked about his training routine, in addition to what he uses in his daily skincare & grooming routine. Check out his sexy photos below. Fingers crossed we get to see him compete in the 2014 Winter Olympic Games In Sochi!
In the last trailer, Kellan Lutz uttered a couple of lines if that. Keeping in line with the studio’s marketing strategy, the focus is on Lutz’s physical assets and the talking left to a minimum in the new clip. He’s wielding a sword, mud wrestling with another buff guy and flexing his muscles in every scene, but only a couple of one-liners. I’m starting to think Lutz ends up speaking less in this clip than Marlee Matlin did in her Oscar-winning performance in Children of Lesser God.
Oh, and as a side note, it appears the title of the movie has changed again. It’s now The Legend of Hercules, instead of Hercules: The Legend Begins and Hercules 3D before that.
In the epic origin story THE LEGEND OF HERCULES, Kellan Lutz stars as the mythical Greek hero — the son of Zeus, a half-god, half-man blessed with extraordinary strength. Betrayed by his stepfather, the King, and exiled and sold into slavery because of a forbidden love, Hercules must use his formidable powers to fight his way back to his rightful kingdom. Through harrowing battles and gladiator-arena death matches, Hercules embarks on a legendary odyssey to overthrow the King and restore peace to the land.
Opening Jan. 10, 2014, The Legend of Hercules also stars Gaia Weiss, Scott Adkins, Liam Garrigan and Spartacus: War of the Damned star Liam McIntyre. Check out the latest piece of Kellan eye candy below.
I don’t know about you, but I feel Shazam is probably one of the best apps ever created. There is nothing more frustrating than hearing a song but not being able to remember the title or artist. Even worse, if you hear it on your favorite TV show and rack your brain trying to figure it out, but still come up empty-handed. Honestly, Shazam has saved me numerous headaches. I also love using it as a makeshift to-download list for songs I need to purchase. The service has been partially credited for Icona Pop’s success. Their hit “I Love It” went on to be Shazamed more than two millions times in the US after appearing on Girls.
In the past several years, Shazam’s activity has increased at an astronomical rate. In 2011, Adele was tops with 4 million Shazams. In 2012, five artists achieved more than five million tags. This year, 43 artists have achieved more than five million Shazams. The popular music tagging service revealed their annual list of most popular tags. Check out the lists below and see if your tagging contributed to the totals.
First and foremost, huge thanks to Daniel Garofali for sending these photos our way. Much appreciated. The stunningly gorgeous stud graces the cover of DNA’s Swimsuit Issue. Those lucky Aussies are enjoying Summer while poor us in North America are in the midst of Winter. BRRRRRR!!!
Photographer Rick Day captures Garofali’s masculine beauty as he wears an assortment of bathing suits, ranging from modest to very revealing. Let’s just say you can almost see the pot of gold at the end of his treasure trail in certain shots. Check out Daniel below writhe and splash around on the beach for the Aussie publication. It’s the perfect way to warm up this cold December day.
