So I just got a new phone and have yet to put my own music onto it and have been Songza’ing the shit out of life right now, finding a few gem playlists I can’t live without. In the search for everything on the songzasphere I discovered “90′s R&B Wake-Up Call“, and it’s made my everything, everything. After beating it into the ground, I present to you, 3 delicious goodies that I forgot I loved.
When Donovan asked me to cover a new TV show, I assumed that HBO was releasing a new epic drama and I was just the nerd and telephile to cover it. NOPE! He recruited me for my insatiable appetite for all things big and beefy… and I ain’t talkin’ steak! Funnily enough, I’ve been toning and trimming down the past couple days for a big ol’ bear party in Vancouver and how kismet should it be that this little show falls into my lap. That said, I’m not EXACTLY hoping to reenact this puppy scene for scene. It’s a little more.. “sashay away” than I look for in my mustached men.
Still, you gotta love anything with Margaret Cho in it! And, the fact that she’s wearing a dominatrix leather onesie and waving around a vibrating dildo wand makes it that much better. The show looks … interesting? It’s definitely BEARS getting looked at here: big, barrel-chest
boys men. None of the typical second generation fit bears, we’re talking large men in all their furred glory! While I never was fortunate enough to catch season one of Where the Bears Are, I can certainly see the attraction of watching a ton of handsome men going at it and bitching about each other the rest of the time- christ, it sounds like my Sundays in reverse ;) Still, it won’t be for everyone, but niche markets are all the rage today!
Star Trek into Darkness was projected to open in the neighborhood of $100 million. It didn’t quite reach that but raked in $70.6 million over the weekend and $84 million since its Thursday opening. The first Star Trek film opened in early May of 2009 and made an impressive $75.2 million on its first weekend out of the gates, without the benefit of 3-D surcharges. Perhaps the four year gap was too long and fans simply didn’t care anymore. With opening box office numbers so important these days, it’s a bit hilarious that a film that rakes in this much is considered somewhat of a disappointment.
Dropping to second in its third frame is Iron Man 3. The Robert Downey Jr. flick added another $35.2 million to its domestic total. The film also passed the $1.1 billion mark worldwide this weekend. Rounding out the Top 3 was The Great Gatsby. In its second weekend, the Baz Luhrmann adaptation brought in another $23.4 million to a total of $90.2 million. Believe it or not, the Australian director has never had a film gross more than $100 million domestically. Next week, he’ll finally achieve this milestone. Check out the rest of the Top 10 below.
The beginning of the end is almost upon Dexter fans. The landmark Showtime series begins its eighth season on Sunday, June 30. The network recently dropped the first official trailer for the final season and it looks like it’s going to be a killer swan song.
Things pick up six months after Deb (Jennifer Carpenter) kills LaGuerta (Lauren Vélez). To say Deb isn’t coping with it well would be an understatement. She struggles with guilt and spirals out of control by turning to sex and hard drugs to cope.
Meanwhile a mysterious woman (Charlotte Rampling) comes to town who happens to be an expert on psychopaths. Could she be the one who finally unmasks the real Bay Harbor Butcher? Given that it’s the last season, I would say it’s extremely likely. Dexter (Michael C Hall) better watch out. Other than that, the trailer is your usual fare of gruesome kill room murders. Check out the clip below.
For their 2012 ad campaign, Julipet enlisted Christian Santamaria to show off their beachwear collection. This time around the Italian-based brand taps male supermodel Miguel Iglesias (no relation to Enrique) to front their 2013 one. A fine choice indeed. Definitely a fan of the Spanish stunner who’s been the face and body for Armani Exchange, UGGs, Dolce & Gabbana and DSquared to name a few. Check out the promotional images below.
On May 18, 2013 Janet Jackson’s fifth studio album celebrated its 20th anniversary. janet moved a whopping 20 million units worldwide and spawned 6 Hot 100 Top 10 hits. The album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 with the largest first week sales in history for a female artist at the time. It just seems like yesterday when “That’s The Way Love Goes” was dominating MTV and radio airwaves.
“I can’t believe it is already 20 years! I always write my music based on what is going on in my life at the time. I wanted to allow people in… I want my fans to really know me. The ‘janet’ album was sexual and I was beginning to really discover that side of me.” – Janet Jackson to Billboard
Control may have been her breakout album, with Rhythm Nation 1814 her best-selling set, but janet was IMHO her best creatively and sexiest. She dabbled with a sexier image with the last single, “Love Will Never Do (Without You),” off her previous album, but janet saw Jackson fully embracing her womanhood and sexuality. Gone was her bulky “Rhythm Nation” uniform. In its place were midriff baring tops and chokers. And in some instances, nothing at all. Who could forget her topless iconic Rolling Stone cover?
The very first teaser trailer for the Anchorman sequel premiered in May 2012. Almost a year later, Paramount finally drops another one for the early-awaited flick. Like the first clip, it features Will Ferrell as Ron Burgundy, along with Steve Carell, Paul Rudd and David Koechner standing alongside him. The foursome take turns dropping their unique catchphrases.
Also returning for the second film are Christina Applegate and Vince Vaughn. New blood comes in the form of Kristen Wiig, Harrison Ford and Greg Kinnear. The Anchorman sequel also features a few notable cameos including Jim Carrey, Drake, Kirsten Dunst, Nicole Kidman, Kanye West, Amy Poehler and Tina Fey. Catch all the action when Anchorman: The Legend Continues hits theaters on December 20, 2013. This time around the action moves from San Diego to New York. Check out the teasers below.
I realize I’m encroaching on Tommy’s territory here talking about World of Wonder and RuPaul, but I just had to beat him to the punch with this one. I couldn’t resist posting about RuPaul’s latest music video, “Lick It Lollipop,” for the sheer fact that it prominently features male model Miles Davis Moody.
The name might not sound familiar to you, but his juicy bubble butt will refresh your member. He’s the guy in Willam, Detox and Vicky Vox’s parody video, “Boy Is A Bottom.” Watch him work his tongue on his guns as he stares into the camera with his seductive bedroom eyes. Definitely poetry in motion. Check it out below. If you’re a fan of Lady Bunny, RuPaul’s gal pal also pops up in the video. Enjoy.
