Game Of Homes: Now Casting In Vancouver

In: Patrick, TV Shows
game-of-homes

The W Network is looking for teams of renovators who’ve got what it takes to completely transform run down houses into spectacular show homes. The show is called Game Of Homes (such a clever name) and they are looking for teams of two who’ve got the skills and confidence to rebuild, redesign and renovate entire houses in a matter of weeks.

The team that does the best job will get to keep the house they renovated AND everything in it!

Teams can be romantically linked, friends, workmates or family members and you’ll both need to be available for an extended filming period of 4-5 weeks September/October in Vancouver. You guys know how these things works… there’s usually at least one gay team in these types of reality shows so Vancouver gays… your chances of getting cast in this are pretty high if you can show casting producers that you’ve got what it takes.

Go to gameofhomescasting.ca to apply today and attend the open casting call (*with your teammate*) that is taking place this coming Wednesday, July 23 from 2pm – 9pm at the Georgian Court Hotel (773 Beatty Street). Here you’ll get the chance to meet the casting producers in person and let them know why you should be on the show. Good luck!

bearracuda-vancouver-party

I’d say excuse me for the impropriety in the title but screw it: this party is gonna be sweaty, furry fun and it’s about time considering the arctic winter we’ve endured thus far. Come the Stat holiday Sunday, February 9th at the spacious and multi-level Club 560, you will find the hottest and beefiest men in the Pacific Northwest turning up to turn it out until the wee hours. I truly live club-wise for these seasonal show ups by the men of Bearracuda who turn this 3-floored beast of a club into an all night party for the hirsute studs of Vancouver and nearby locales. This is not a night to be missed.

Returning by demand is Sydney’s DJ Paul Goodyear who played to a packed bear crowd in years past who will be spinning on the main floor to the dancing fantasy that are the “beefy bear babes” who stomp and spin on stage to the delight of all those in attendance. Downstairs will be ever-full and offering a second musical playlist by local bearded stud DJ Jay Douglas (who, to this day STILL won’t respond to my woofs on Scruff!). This night will hold nothing back and neither will I so make sure you say hey when you see me there but try to wait until I’m done making out with the beefiest man there ;)

If you still haven’t picked up your 2014 calendar yet, might I suggest one of these two. Not only do you get to look at shirtless heroic men every day, but you’re also helping out great causes. The Colorado firemen take off most of their gear for the Children’s Hospital Colorado Burn Center, while my local Vancouverite studs do it in support of the Burn Fund and various other charities including the CKNW Orphan’s Fund.

For a little fun, I thought I’d pick my five favorite guys from each fundraising calendar and ask your opinion on which group of guys you’d rather come breaking through your door to rescue you with their big bulky arms.

Since I’m from Vancouver, I’ll let the away team go first. The above pic, along with the next four are from the Colorado edition. After that, it’s the YVR guys’ turn. Links to purchase each calendar can be found after each group of pics. Enjoy.

A new gay romantic comedy called John Apple Jack is making it’s world premiere tomorrow (Saturday, November 9) here in Vancouver at the Vancouver Asian Film Festival (VAFF). John Apple Jack tells the story of a modern-day boy-meets-boy romantic comedy about finally finding love… after having slept with everyone else. I had the opportunity to watch the feature film ahead of time and I definitely recommend checking it out!

The film is written and produced by Vancouver’s Rick Tae, directed and co-produced by Monika Mitchell, and produced by Selena Paskalidis. Here’s a little more about the plot of the film: When a glamorous playboy realizes that his dream guy is about to get away, he turns his life upside down in a mad rush to confess his love. Tae’s semi-autobiographical tale unfolds around the escapades of John (Chris McNally), a handsome gay man and heir to a restaurant empire. John lives a lifestyle of extravagance – champagne, fast cars and fast men. But when he discovers his sister is about to marry his childhood crush, Jack (Kent S. Leung), John realizes that the wedding must be stopped. His life spirals out of control as he loses his job, his playboy reputation…and even his underwear.

“John and Jack were childhood friends whose lives have taken different paths. One is living a life of privilege but finds emptiness under its slick veneer. The other is earnest and lovable, but struggling to face his true desires. How do they bridge differences and find each other?” explains Tae. “At its heart, John Apple Jack is a universal love story of ‘opposites attract’ that will resonate with a wide audience. I’m excited to debut my first feature right here at home in Vancouver as it’s a tribute itself to the city’s culturally-diverse community.”

Two weeks from tonight, Kim Caldwell makes her Vancouver debut at our very own Tommy’s Liberace night at Celebrities on November 21. If you’re in town, definitely check it out.

Caldwell is best known for placing seventh place on the second season of American Idol. For myself, I’ve been a fan since she appeared on Popstars: USA. Not the season where Eden’s Crush featuring Nicole Scherzinger was formed, but the season after. Since her Idol stint, she’s hosted various shows on TV Guide and MTV’s P. Diddy’s Starmaker.

In 2011, she released her debut album Without Regret. It spawned two infectious singles, “Mess of You” and my favorite “Desperate Girls & Stupid Boys.” Recently, she unveiled a new lyric video for “On The Weekend.”

I know she’s performing on a school night, but she always puts on a great show. If you’re a Vancouver Whitecaps fan, you just might catch a glimpse of her handsome boyfriend Jordan Harvey. For more details, head over to the Facebook event. As a side note. While she was promoting her debut album, yours truly interviewed her in West Hollywood years ago. One of my favorite moments.

Out of all the days during this year’s Vancouver Pride, Sunday is shaping up to be the busiest of them all. Between the parade, Trouble T-Dance, boat cruises, Hustla and our very own Tommy’s Victory party, the options are endless. Adding to the dilemma of what to do is Fortune Sound Club & Spit’s YVR Pride Closing Party. They’re bringing in the fabulous Honey Dijon.

Based in NYC, born and bred in the Windy City, Honey is known for her unique take on the Chicago sound with inflections of the deep New York underground. Honey’s recent gigs for such clients as Louis Vuitton, Givenchy, Rick Owens and other global taste-makersis also making her one of the most sought after dj’s for top fashion events.

If you’ve never been to Fortune Sound Club, the venue boasts two wicked rooms. On this night, tunes will be provided by G-Luve, Alrick X, Matisse, Franko Baj and The Boy Funk in addition to Honey Dijon. Taking on hosting duties are Celestial Seasons, Lady Jem, Quannah Styles & Shanda-leer. The night also features sexy visuals by Matt Troy. For more information, check out the official Facebook event.

AB Soto has been making the rounds on the scene for a while now, and with singles like “Honey Boo Boo” and this year’s “Keep It Movin’“, he’s gotten a lot of attention, and not just because of his loud fashion. His music has been making people dance and his style has been making eyes pop all across North America, and finally he’s making his Vancouver debut at Vancouver Pride this year, performing at the very popular and always sweaty Hustla: Pride Meltdown.

I had the chance to ask the ever sweet and talented AB a couple of questions about what inspires him this week in preparation for his Vancouver debut:

What inspires your fashion?

“I like to break all stereotypes. I believe you can say a lot about a person by the way they dress. I like to push the envelope.”

What inspires your new music?

“I find inspiration by writing about what is happening around me. I get inspired by all types of music: Pop, House, R&B, 90′s Rap.”

What inspires your live shows?

“I’m inspired by fashion, art, music, and dance, but my message is most important. My music is for the people.”

You can catch AB Soto Live at The Cobalt on Aug 4th for Hustla: Pride Meltdown at Vancouver Pride this year. Get your nearly sold out presale tickets here, and make sure to download AB’s latest Fag Out Vol. 2 right away. Happy Pride season everyone!
