A group of gay and straight high school kids have put together a #hairmusicvideo in support of the It Gets Better Project. Creator Colton James Boettcher‘s artistic vision for the video took the form of a music video for Lady Gaga’s “Hair” because the song is about being yourself, being true to who you are. Some of the lyrics are, “You are the spirit of your hair, it’s all the glory you bare” and “I’ve had enough, I’m not a freak, I’m just hear trying to stay cool on the streets.”
It’s great to see a school working together, with straight and gays coming together for a good cause. Bullying is still a huge problem and kids can be cruel. In fact, aside from the gays being bullied, my sister-in-law posted on her Facebook status yesterday, “The hardest part about having a child with Autism is watching the way the world looks at my little girl. Lately I am having so much trouble looking past the kids that stare or giggle just because she acts a little differently then they do. The blessing of Autism is that my daughter has no idea that they are making fun of her so she is not hurt by their actions. The person that gets hurt is the one who is watching from the sidelines and who knows exactly what is going on.” Breaks my heart. Bullying takes many forms and this video tackles one.
With some great choreography, we follow the story of a boy who is bullied for being gay, and with a school dance coming up, he can’t stop thinking about the boy he likes. We also follow a girl who struggles for acceptance from her mom. Check it out below. It’s very well done!
Ever been at a party where you or your friends are sharing pictures, messages and laughs as a result of messages they may have received on Grindr? I’ve seen it happen (you know who you are). Anyway, in the past we’ve come across a website called Douchebags of Grindr where profiles of people on Grindr are posted online, making fun of guys who have ridiculously contradictory pictures and profiles or simply hilarious taglines.
Enter “Drunk Grindr“, a series videos posted on YouTube by two guys named James and Peter. It’s pretty self explanatory. The two guys get drunk in front of their camera, while each surfing Grindr and comparing notes. Sometimes they even talk to the same guy to see if the guys says different things to each of them.
In their most recent video, the description reads: “Aggressively drunk grinding from not one, but two iphones. Buckle up, guys within a 10 mile radius of us, the drunker we get the more determined we are to try and talk to you.” Watch the videos below.
Advancements in science these days are pretty amazing. Just the other day I wrote about the fact that scientists were working on creating in vitro meat in an effort to avoid having to kill animals and it completely avoids fecal pathogens animals on the hoof can carry because the meat is from a lab. Well, now a new discovery has been made: The Cure For Homophobia.
Does the site of two men holding hands make you angry? Does talk of gay marriage make you irritable?
The cure was discovered by ArionTheDaily, with a clever and witty faux ad that discusses the treatment, recommended dosages, as well as the potential side effects of taking the treatment. Actually, this guy recently did a “Shit Vegans Say” video that I included in my list.
Anyway, without further ado, watch the ad below to find out what the cure for homophobia is. The crazy thing is that it’s been within our reach this whole time! Thankfully, I’ve already been taking it proactively.
This morning, I came across several videos that have been posted recently that document weird sounds taking places in different cities all over the world. The eery hum has been experienced at different times for months (the earliest videos of these experiences date back to August), but it seems like many more have experienced this in the last several days. One video posted on Jan. 12 has recorded strange sounds coming from a Conklin, Alberta., forest. The workers in the forest hear this noise and it looks like it’s a scene straight out of a horror movie. There’s also one from Manitoba that is quite scary as well and gets all of his dogs barking. Reminds me of a scene from Signs or something.
A site that discusses the sounds heard in Costa Rica is saying that people believe that this was all predicted in the bible in The Revelations, where God gave seven angels seven trumpets to sound. The thing that adds to this is that just three days after the sounds were heard in Costa Rica, the Turrialba volcano that has been dormant since 1864 erupted on January 12, 2012. Earthquakes led up to the eruption of ash, with 75 separate earthquakes recorded on the same day in Cartago (January 11).
A sign from God, UFOs, NORAD jets, or is it an elaborate hoax using the soundtrack from Lost, Inception, or Transformers? I don’t know, but either way it sounds pretty real and pretty scary to me. Check out some of the most viewed videos below.
I know Patrick wanted his to be the last “Shit People Say” because lets be honest, they are getting out of hand, but I laughed SO hard when I saw this one. I have to admit that this one has many things in it that I have heard many gays say…”WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERK MOMA.”
The video was created by Mike Diamond, Giggles, Nick Stryker, and Mike 3.0. It’s not the best quality I have seen but damn it has some of the funniest quotes I have heard in a while. Before I saw this video my personal favorite was “Sh*t Yogis Say.” These are some of my favorite quotes in the video:
Ok Patrick, NOW I will let these videos be put to bed…Enjoy!
This “Shit People Say” video phenomenon, instigated by “Shit Girls Say“, has gotten out of control and I think everyone wants it to stop now. Yes, I’m talking to you, person who is currently editing their own version as I write this.
Now I realize it may seem like I’m just contributing to the problem by writing about this video, but I actually find that this can be a nice wrap up to these videos – at least on our site anyway. Enter in – “Shit Nobody Says“.
Created by Tripp and Tyler, this video is clever, well-edited, and genuinely funny. These are phrases that you shouldn’t find anyone saying. “God, I miss dial-up,” or “Twilight deserves an Oscar.” LOL. So, now that we’ve gone full circle, from Shit (everyone) Says to Shit Nobody Says, let’s agree that these videos should be put to bed. Oh, but watch this one more first. Enjoy!
I just watched this video this weekend with Donovan and died of laughter. Then I came back to life so that I could write about it and share it with you. It was uploaded on January 2, so it’s been circulating for a few days now and is now going viral.
The video is about a “Huge Group of Girls,” as the title implies. You know, the girls that go out together, dance together, get obnoxiously drunk together, text together… and you can’t miss them because they are a “Huge Group of Girls”? LOL. Well, sketch comedy group Last Call Cleveland wrote a song about them (from his album, “Put Their Music In You“) and made a music video is well. The song is so catchy and the video is simply hilarious. Enjoy it below!
Is one of your New Year’s resolutions to be fearless this year? To take risks? Maybe to remind yourself that what other people think about you is none of your business? If you’re looking for some inspiration to help you with this step, look no further than Angela Trimbur. This gal is a complete and total expression of freedom and fearlessness. I stumbled across this video this morning and had to share it with all of you. I hope it will put a smile on your face.
Three weeks ago, Angela went through a “bum of a breakup” as she puts it in the video’s description. She states that she was feeling mega down and low. Scrolling through her music, she stumbled across “I’m Good, I’m Gone” by the fabulous Lykke Li and thought, the title of the song was quite fitting. Heading to her local laundromat in Echo Park, CA, Angela proceeded to dance for her life between the washing machines. Angela’s favorite stand-out lyric? “Yeah, I know I’ll get it back. Yeah, I know your hands will clap.”
What an inspiration this little video is. We should all dance like nobody’s watching everyday of our lives, don’t you think? Check out this little gem of a video below.
