I can't wait for this flick to open later this Spring. Avengers is my kind of popcorn movie and one that will get me back into the theater. Because as of now, the obnoxious popcorn munchers and rude talkers are keeping me at bay.
Around 12 tornadoes touched down in Kansas last night. See one forming near Hutchinson, KS below. I remember the days of getting exciting when the sirens would sound - jumping on top of our roof to see if we could spot one. Unfortunately (and fortunately), Lindsborg sits in a valley of some sorts so the funnels usually swirled on by. An amazing site to see.
Parker Young (as Ryan Shay) was featured in an episode of Suburgatory a few weeks ago (as well as PTT a few months back). But because I'm a bit behind in TV viewing, I'm not just getting to the show. All of which means it's taken me longer to make note that one of my friends, TP, should be watching this show. He would love him. Love. Him.
Looks like a noted PTT HOTTIE is now a "Dancing with the Stars" cast member. Once again, PTT is ahead of the curve.
Besides the Best Picture award last night at the Oscars, everyone is talking about Tom Cruise and how he seems to have turned back time. Because if you saw the latest Mission Impossible movie, you could see some facial wasting around his eyes. Magically, that has disappeared - most say from either fillers or fat injection. Read for yourself HERE. In any case, he looks amazing. Goes to show what money can buy.
I won't be commenting on every bit of show detail, but a few will make their way to PTT. So check back for a few snarky comments!
In case you're not a fan of the Oscars, yet you want to pop over for a quickie, check out the show running schedule below.
Days of Our Lives, one of the only soaps left on daytime TV, showed its first gay kiss. And it was a doozy! Check it out below. A bit young for my tastes. But appreciative of the network's support of the gay and lesbian community.
I spotted the amazing Skating Aratas on the "Ellen Show" today. Of course, I paid more attention to the shirtless hottie. He can spin me around anytime.
Whitney performed "Saving All My Love for You" on the David Letterman show in 1985. What's most impressive is that Whitney just walks out, pics up a mic, and starts singing. It was that natural. Amazing.
I can't escape Aaron O'Connell. And that's okay. He's my "hottie of the moment." Check him out in the Liquid Plumr spot below for Double Impact. I'll let him snake my drain anytime.
I've made note of the annoying electronic, digital noise I hear in the background of some TV shows. I first heard it last year during the Oscars. Unfortunately, the subtle beeps seem to be spreading. Now I hear them on ABC, the CW, and Fox to name a few. From searching the net, it seems to be a sound compression issue - only problematic when there's laughter or music (and not during commercials). If anything, good thing to know I'm NOT ALONE. Chris can't hear it. But I can. And it's annoying. Here's to hoping the network executives hear our complaints.
For those of you who have interest in TV, specifically deciding if you should commit to a series or not, you might want to know NBC's "Smash" is no smash. With only 38% retention of "The Voice's" 16 million viewers, I'm wondering how long the network will commit to the Spielberg produced mid-season replacement. I'm guessing not long.
My afternoon jam. Cher Lloyd deserves some stateside attention. Perhaps now that L.A. Reid signed her to a record deal, she'll take off.
I still don't know what Gay-Ville is (even after watching the video), but the clip grabbed my attention. Though, if the creators of the promo piece asked for my opinion, I'd tell them to focus more on the hottie in blue jogging on the treadmill. Just sayin'.
Over the past few weeks, pictures have surfaced from the 90s. Our friends are seen in cut-off denim, sporting bobs, dancing on Fire Island. All of which has sparked conversations about that time in gay culture between those who participated and younger generations that seem to have no way of connecting to the hey day of circuit parties.
Whitney's last release, "Nothing But Love," got no love from the public. But there are a few good tracks that should have been appreciated by radio programmers and the buying public - one being "For the Lovers." It chugs along with a chorus that begs to "throw you hands up." Check it out below.
Tonight's episode of SNL, 36 minutes in, has to be one of the best in months. Guest star Maya Randolph deserves credit as do Amy Poehler and Justin Timberlake. High-larious "Bronx Beat" and "Beyonce" skits are highlights. Musical guest Sleigh Bells, however, need to go back to the Poles.
I just dropped Chris and our friend Hekk off for dinner. I'm now back home but I don't want to get out of the car. 80s on 8 is counting down the Hot 100 from this day in 1985. What a great year. I might just have to sit here all night.
Yes, I've decided to cut my hair. After hours of contemplating the move, and conducting a poll with both new and close friends, I realized it's time for a change. Sure, I fear I'll become less noticeable once my golden locks are gone. But there's something to be said for updating my look. As a result, the winning haircut will be inspired by Bradley Cooper. If only I could steal some of his good looks too.
When watching TV, I hear this odd electronic noise in the background - especially when a crowd laughs, or music is loud. Chris can't hear it. But I can. I blame my dog hearing. Turns out I'm not the only one. OTHERS across America here it too. Who's going to fix it?
Perez featured this pic of Ryan Gosling leaving his hotel in Bangkok (hence the comment scribbled in white). I can't argue with Perez however. Ryan's arms are looking pumped! Is there anyway I can jump on a plane headed for Thailand? Seems to be the week to jet away (with Carnival starting today in Brazil and our friends escaping for some fun in the sun).
Tom Skilling on WGN TV news just noted this winter Chicago has had 41 days of 40+ weather. Compare this to last year's 6, and you can understand why this has been quite a mild season and one I'm thoroughly enjoying.
I've been hunting for this track for a while - never remembering who sang it (and searching the title netted zero results). All I could recall was that it featured some dude with blown out blonde hair in black leather. A fave of mine from 1986. Thanks 80s on 8!
It was noted today in regards to Whitney Houston's death that many who achieve an overwhelming amount of fame seem to get stuck in that moment - their psyche stops growing. So they handle life as they did at the age they achieved success. Michael as a boy. Whitney as a 19-year old who wanted everything her way. Interesting assessment.
We've known all along, but Matt Bomer finally admitted to the world that he's gay. After all, he has a partner and three kids. But everyone admits their sexuality on their own time. So congratulations Matt for feeling comfortable enough to let the cat out of the pink bag. Now go grab your toaster.
Katy Perry's latest single, "Part of Me," one of three songs added to a repackaged version of "Teenage Dream," isn't anything groundbreaking, but I'm diggin' the track. Another fun collaboration with Max Martin and nothing short of what I'd expect from the hitmakers. Check out Katy below as she performs the song live at the Grammys.
