Pink Trash Travels

A Big One

For those of you who care, Magic Mike looks to haul in $30M+ this weekend - tracking like the first Sex in the City movie.  Leave it to the ladies and gays (if and when they care) to propel a movie to number two (due to Ted's big opening as well).

What My Housemates Are Thinking While in Saugatuck this Weekend

Premiere Dates

For fans of The Vampire Diaries, mark your calendars! The hit show returns Thursday, October 11 at 8. And if you've been following along with PTT and my excitement for a new hot, superhero to hit the CW, you'll be excited to know Arrow premieres Wednesday, October 10 at 8 p.m.

Snap, Crackle, Pop!

Because of the sharp, shooting pain down my neck, shoulder and right arm, I decided to visit a chiropractor today for the first time - ever. In short, I learned a lot. I can barely remember half of what he said but I do recall him saying my spine, the arch specifically in my neck, is a bit more protruded than it should be. So, a few nerves are being pinched.

As a result, he did some adjusting (think snapping your neck to the right and left). He also applied cold therapy with electronic stimuli. I'm not sure I'm sold on the benefits of popping gas out of my neck (the "realignment"), but we'll see. I'll give it two weeks and reassess.

Beaty and the Beat

YouTube and the internet have given birth to some very creative people. Check out Beauty and the Beat. A Disney classic gets re-imagined.

See Ya!

I went to the dentist yesterday for a cleaning. Unfortunately, I found out I had a small cavity in one of my upper wisdom teeth. And because the tooth already had a filling, the dentist recommended either covering it with a crown or pulling it. So, I declared, "Yank it!" And they did - 15 minutes later. So I've been living on a liquid diet for 24 hours. All of which means I'll be nice and slim for this weekend's 4th of July festivities.

Self Promotion

I suppose if you're going to sell your own line of underwear, it helps if you've got a body to assist with promotion. And Todd Sanfield does indeed.

Introducing (Again) Fabio Lendrum

Fabio Lendrum has been trying to break into the Euro pop scene for years. Nothing has caught fire - even with his good looks. Perhaps things will change with his soon to be released EP with the song Anything is Possible. Check out the single below.

Men of Chicago Pride 2012

Well, it's actually "Man of Chicago Pride 2012," at least in this post, because I didn't take too many photos. The iPhone just sucks for snapshots. However, this street team member had my friends and I salivating Saturday afternoon. If only could see more of his assets - including those enjoyed from behind. Amazing.

Those Silly UK Peeps

Our friends in the UK sent a text yesterday making note of Paul Ryan's good looks. I think they were drunk. Or need glasses. Boys, re-evaluate! Thanks for reaching out!

Eating Off Joe

Joe Manganiello seems like a good sport with quite the personality. Check out the clip below from "Talk Soup." Even with that "belly," I'd like it.

Jesse Metcalf Half Naked

Sure, Jesse Metcalf is hot - especially standing in his undies on the new "Dallas" (see below). But I just can't force myself to watch the reincarnation as well as consider myself a fan of Jesse's beyond his good looks. His douche bag behavior while on "Desperate Housewives" just continues to linger.

Breaking Down the Numbers

Ever wonder how a video goes viral? Take the A & F "Call Me Maybe" for example. It's almost reached 3MM views. As of today, it's racked up the following:

748,524 Facebook shares
201 blog posts
Discovered 13 Jun 2012

All of which exemplifies the power of FB and the discussion between friends (and apparent lack of inclusion on blogs).

I Couldn't Resist

Winnie's favorite spot on the back porch. If she could, she'd lay there all day.

Murphy never wants to leave your side. So as I sat in the backyard, he enjoyed the grass.

Just Thinking

As I watched Katy Perry's new video for Wide Awake, I'm reminded how much I love the song. That, and I think to myself, "It's too bad Madonna doesn't work with Max Martin. I have a feeling the two could make magic - and Madge would return to the top of the pop charts with some catchy tunes."

Undies that Advertise

Niclas Bendtner was fined over $100,000 for flashing an advertisement on his underwear. I don't know about the Irish betting operation, but my friend Paddy needs a pair to advertise his goods in Boystown.

Thor Gets Wet

Chris will always be my favorite Hemsworth. The pictures below explain why. In a wetsuit, or out, he's one big drink of Australian water.

Carly and the A & F Boys

Carly Rae Jepsen's Call Me Maybe continues to take over America and the world. Not only does the song now sit atop the Hot 100, but Abercrombie & Fitch put their half naked models to good use with a video parody that has them running around half naked. With over 2 million hits, I'm sure the company has just discovered a new marketing tool. Check out the video below.

Paddy's Pride Parade Party

My friend Patrick has decided to have a Pride parade party. So he asked me to enhance a photo he took from his balcony. Here's what I threw together tonight. Look for it in your mailbox (if you're lucky).

Conan Goes 2 Wiener

If you've never been to Chicago Wiener's Circle, you're in for a treat. Conan, while filming his show in the Windy City, visited the famous hot dog stand where they yell at you. Check it out below.

Juicing Gone Bad

For all you heavy steroid users, check out THIS article on the loss of porn star Erik Rhodes.

Introducing Bren Foster (Again)

There's a new hottie in town on Melissa and Joey and his name is Bren Foster (who I just realized I featured on PTT back on December 28th). The Australian born actor plays Jules. Unfortunately, I think he's only around for a few episodes. So if you're watching like I am, enjoy him while you can (and apparently I enjoy him a lot as he's found his way back onto PTT without even knowing the connection).


Today I Tweeted. I was one of the first to sign-up back in 2007, but I haven't really used Twitter since. But because I was hoping to grab the attention of a job lead, I sent him a note via the social networking service. Have I received one back? No. But hopefully I'll peak his interest enough for him to check out my website. Fingers crossed.

Carrie Underwood Supports Gay Marriage

Carrie Underwood recently revealed her thoughts towards gay marriage. Thank you Carrie for supporting our cause.

"As a married person myself, I don't know what it's like to be told I can't marry somebody I love, and want to marry," she said. "I can't imagine how that must feel. I definitely think we should all have the right to love, and love publicly, the people that we want to love. Our church is gay friendly. Above all, God wanted us to love others. It's not about setting rules, or [saying] 'everyone has to be like me'. No. We're all different. That's what makes us special. We have to love each other and get on with each other. It's not up to me to judge anybody."


Robin Roberts ANNOUNCED this morning on Good Morning America that she has a bone marrow disease resulting from her fight with breast cancer. I don't know her, and barely watch the show, but her words made me tear up. She's a brave woman. Here's to hoping she swiftly wins her battle.

Going Gay in Spain

If the guy on the far right was waiting for me at SITGES for their Gay Pride event in July, I'd book a ticket yesterday.

Real Classy

It's unfortunate that the only true gay bar in downtown Chicago is the old Gentry (now called, of all names, Downtown). Even more sad is a small, wooden table the bouncer uses as a stand to house her Pringles, lotion and bottled water. When you top it off with a milk crate that doubles as a foot rest, you have yourself one classy bar.

Why I'll B Watching the Green Arrow on CW This Fall

Hell 2 the Yes

New Lutty Mix!

Just in time for weekend activities and Pride later this month, a new non-stop MIX featuring "comeback" Rauhofer remixes of Rihanna and Scissor Sisters (super hot) along with new The Wanted, Katy Perry, Ne-Yo, Cheryl Cole, Gossip, Nelly Furtado and Selena! One of the best yet so enjoy the ride! For a complete set list, just shoot me an email! Grab it HERE.

PTT Likes Fassbender

I ran across this headshot of Michael Fassbender today. Just goes to show how super sexy one can be without trying too hard.

Here's Joe - Again

Joe Manganiello brought his Magic Mike character to the MTV Movie Awards last night. Good thing he was shirtless and not his co-star Channing Tatum who's looking a bit "full." I prefer Joe anyway. Keep the nakedness coming!

Oprah's Next Chapter w/ Neil and David

Oprah's Next Chapter tonight featured an up close and personal interview with Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka. So many pieces to their story ring true. And though they don't want to be role models, I am thankful Neil and David display so many wonderful qualities - many some Americans chose not to see in a gay couple.

Oprah Meets Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka's Twins

Oprah meets Gideon and Harper, Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka's adorable twins, in the backyard of their California home. Find out how two eggs, two embryos, one anonymous egg donor and one surrogate mother produced these happy, healthy children.

Sad Indeed

I find it sad when someone uses Facebook to promote their insecurities by not only touting their "fancy" whereabouts but when they make reference to a compliment they received only in hopes of others commenting on the self promoting post. Case in point:

"...not going to lie, hearing a new acquaintance tell me I'm gorgeous last night was exactly what this dateless single guy needed to hear :)"

I guess it's clear some are in need of constant validation.

Joe's @ it Again

Joe Manganiello goes shirtless for Men's Health (and to promote his new film Magic Mike of course). I knew I was a fan of Chucks for a reason.

Joey Goes Shirtless - Thanks ABC!

I sure hope our DVR recorded the new season of Melissa & Joey. Apparently, Joey Lawrence goes shirtless - showing us how he's getting better looking as he gets older. Umhmmm...
