If there is one place I’d love to move to, it would definitely be London. Hands down. It’s no wonder I’ve visited it more than any other European city. It’s been far too long since I last traveled to the UK. After checking out these promo images for one of its gay clubs, I miss it even more.
Gigolo UK -London’s original porno disco- is one of SoHo’s hottest clubs. Check out a few pics below and you’ll see why. I try to add at least one eye candy post a day for you, and here’s today’s gratuitous serving of shirtless pics ;) Enjoy.
GIGOLO brings together a fusion of the hottest Dj talent to spin a combination of retro Disco, uplifting Disco house and dirty nu Disco beats. International PORNOSTAR guests work their $$$makers in the VIP booth. – Gigolo FB Page
And I thought “Priscilla, Queen of the Desert” was the gayest musical I’ve seen. I’m sure the upcoming Spice Girls theater extravaganza will make Priscilla look super butch. Melanie Brown, Melanie Chisholm, Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton and Victoria Beckham reunited one more time in London to announce their musical legacy was being transformed to one big song and dance number. Fittingly enough, the girls made the announcement at the St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel where the video for their 1996 No. 1 hit “Wannabe” was filmed.
That’s right, Girl Power is back and heading to London’s West End theatre district. Who would’ve thought “zig-a-zig-ah” would be uttered in a musical. Titled “Viva Forever“, the musical tells the “story of four friends whose bond is tested when their band enters a TV talent show.” Why only four? Is Geri being pushed out again. LOL. The description on the official website further explains the synopsis of the musical:
As one girl follows her dreams, VIVA FOREVER! charts her journey into the world of overnight celebrity and its impact on her mother, and the friends she thought she’d have forever. From London to Spain and back again, as the world judges you, it’s all about who you really are and who you want to be, whatever the cost.
Haters are naturally going to label “Viva Forever” a trainwreck, but I wouldn’t be so quick to pass judgement. The team behind the musical boasts an impressive pedigree. Jennifer Saunders of “Absolutely Fabulous” wrote it and Judy Craymer produced it. Craymer was also responsible for turning the ABBA songbook into the worldwide smash musical, “Mamma Mia“. I think I might have to book a ticket to London in December to check this out. Previews for Viva Forever start November 27 with a December 11 opening at London’s Piccadilly Theatre.
The 2012 London Summer Olympics are around the corner and I can’t wait. I’m a hardcore fanatic. Just ask Patrick and Tyrell about the time I swept through the Olympic category during a game of Jeopardy on Wii. DOMINATED. But enough self admiration, the point of this post is to applaud Dunhill’s latest ad campaign and not my Olympic trivia prowess ;)
The British luxury men’s brand just launched their Spring/Summer 2012 ad campaign. Titled “Voice“, it celebrates British Olympians from the past, present and future. These three sporting giants in their respective field look absolutely dapper, sexy and masculine in their Dunhill threads. While most fashion labels like to exclusively use celebrities for their campaigns, Dunhill opted to celebrate real men of distinction of different ages and backgrounds. The Voice campaign is not about celebrity nor the world of fame.
“Men who have achieved great things in their chosen fields and continue to excel with humility and grace. Men who embody timeless values that are worth aspiring to – qualities like compassion, dedication and conviction. Brilliant, inspiring, driven, engaging men with opinions, flaws and stories to tell.”
Unlike this cheesy Chanel gymnastic-inspired photo shoot, the Alfred Dunhill black and white portraits are powerful and classy. All three men look handsome and distinguished dressed head to toe in Dunhill clothes and make great spokesmen for the British atelier. I’m sure we will see more Olympic-themed ad campaigns leading up to the 2012 London Games. Check out the photos below.
Gay mobile hookup App, Grindr now has over two million users in 192 countries. With its expansion from iPhone to also include Android, iPad and BlackBerry, as well as the Grindr Xtra, these successes have helped to make Grindr a leader in this new mobile hookup industry.
So for the cities that have the most users, do you think it’s just because they have the most population? Probably. But perhaps they may also be hornier and sexually promiscuous, and/or just more tech-savvy and more into their phone apps. It could also just be a bit of the social scene culture, where one isn’t as likely to go up to someone and ask for their number anymore, and would much rather chat through a device when once they know how many feet away the target is. Either way, the numbers don’t lie and below we have listed the top 10 cities in the world for Grindr.
Some call it stalking, I call it flattery, tomato tomoto. I was chatting to my UK friend the other day and he was telling me about this new funny website called TubeCrush.net. When I visited I instantly found myself reminiscing about the days when I rode the tube in London to and from work. TubeCrush is a website where you can send in photos of boys you fancy and let others vote on them, Tweet them, and share them as well. I remember that my only thoughts while walking to the Tube were “God I hope there is some nice eye candy on the way to work today.” It can be so dreary down in the London tube system that it’s nice when you can look at something aesthetically pleasing on your way to work.
I never took photos of people on the tube but then again there wasn’t a website to send them into when I lived there. In local free papers they always had “missed connections” full of “BRN eyed boy with BRN hair, you were on the Piccadilly line at 1:24pm and got off at Manor House. We made eye contact the whole way. Call me!” Such a good laugh when there was nothing else to read. So far my favourite is titled “Gazing Beauty” and he is indeed a fit fellow.
Another who’s read a single one of my musical posts would know that my collection of tunes isn’t from deep research on Swedish underground websites that host rare remixes of Rihanna’s latest, rather from killer shows with producers on the beat of today’s newest and greatest uncovered bands. Admittedly, what’s “uncovered” to some may be old hat to others, but for the most part I get constantly surprised with a new great addition to my iTunes collection. Last week on one of my absolute favs- especially for new mp3s- “Skins UK” (during an Asian girl on girl internet porn viewing scene no less) introduced me to the world of Dubstep.
I’m sure all the cool kids out there know exactly what’s up with this concept, but I had to Wiki it to clue in: “A genre of electronic music descended from garage music, characterised by its dark mood, sparse, syncopated rhythms, and emphasis on bass”… basically, a lot of electronic anger and who doesn’t love that ha. Still, I’m one of those lyric boys through and through and require at least a few meaningful words strung together to put some soul into the song and the song in question today: “Love” by Borgore offers just that. A punk dub artist from Britain, Borgore has a pretty established career and a strong flock of followers and I’m a recent convert thanks to the hilarity and absurdity of his lyrics combined with some excellent dj-ing.
Since 1981, The Sundance Film Festival has been showcasing the finest in independent film from American and international filmmakers. Founded in part by Robert Redford, the festival has grown to become the largest independent cinema festival in the United States. Every year Hollywood bigwigs, celebrities and movie buffs descend upon Park City, Utah to take part in the festival, while enjoying the picturesque snowy mountain backdrop.
For the first time in the festival’s history, it is expanding into another country- Jolly ol’ England to be exact. Redford made the announcement yesterday that he’ll be bringing Sundance across the pond to London in the spring of 2012. Sundance UK edition will run from April 26-29, 2012 at London’s entertainment district, The O2. It’ll will feature film screenings, live musical performances, discussion panels and cultural events. Looks like 2012 is going to be a busy year for Londoners with this and the Summer Olympics going on.
Michelle Branch of solo and duo fame (The Wreckers) has decided to return to pop music after a few years of hiatus. Her last release was from her duo effort in 2006 and her last solo effort was way back in 2001. That’s almost a decade. We’re glad you’re back, Michelle. She has been in London over the last little while working on her new project which she is calling fun and creative. Here’s what she had to say about it.
“I was in London – I’ve been working on a new record Julian Emrey and Jim Irvine, who are these two writers I met in LA. The first song we wrote together is a song called Spark, and we were so excited about it – it was the best writing day possible! It’s great because they’re writers and also producers. My favorite song that we wrote together was called The Story Of Us. It’s a song that’s really personal to me. I have 11 or 12 songs ready to go right now and I’m going to go in studio in January and start recording them. I’m really confident I will have this record out by next summer.”
