You know, there come a time ever year where children and adults alike are able to explore magic and wonder and everybody gets to play pretend and dress up in costumes and either round up their annual candy stash or follow the “slut rule” and party.
Well, my friends, this year I’m sad to announce I was without a Halloween costume. Last year I followed the slut rule by prancing around West Hollywood, down Santa Monica Blvd in my underwear dressed up as some sort of pharaoh-prince. This year, since I didn’t have a costume, I decided to dress up as a straight guy. (You can check out a picture on my Twitter page.) People were greatly concerned and almost outraged at my costume, but rest assured, kiddies, I’m gayer than ever.
I feel since I have kept under the radar this year, I have to make a comeback with a bang next year. SO! I’m revealing what my plans for next year are. I realize it’s a long time from now, but once you learn what exactly I intend on wearing, you’ll understand.
Boos and ghouls, next year I will follow the slut rule. I will gladly receive help from whoever wants to make this slutty dream come true. My 2011 Halloween costume will be inspired by one of Miranda Kerr’s Victoria’s Secret runway show looks. I present to you: Madame Butterfly.
Yes, I too will metamorphose into a beautiful butterfly. I’m pretty sure it’ll take me a while to crete a really quality replica.
To really get the full effect of the look, watch the video above. Right around the 1:20 mark, you can see Miranda and these wings in action. (By the way, am I the only one who absolutely loves the Victoria’s Secret show? Those girls are so sexy! I want to be just like them. Haha)
I’ll probably wear some sort of boy-short underwear and some gladiator sandals with the wrap up like Miranda. I’m so excited!
So there you have it, kids. I hope that by next year I will be able to spread my wings and flutter!
This is Leandro Maeder. He’s a model and he’s on my blog for no reason at all. Jesus…help me.
Pardon my drooling.
My GOODNESS. Okay, I need a moment…
Anyway, Leandro has nothing to do with what my entry is about. (Except for maybe that I still have an eye for beautiful men). Haha
Some of you have been wondering what’s been going on in my life so here’s a little update:
I’ve been nearly drowning in schoolwork and this semester has proven to be quite challenging. I haven’t been going out quite as much as I’d like, but I guess partying doesn’t exactly help when you’re trying to get good grades and I’m trying this thing where I’m being responsible. We’ll see how this plays out.
I’ve also been working quite a bit. It’s been back and forth with hours at work, so one week I’ll be at the store every day and others I might not be there for 5 days, so I guess I try and make the best of it. For now, I guess it works; my focus is school and getting everything I need done.
I’ve been active but I need to crank my fitness into high gear. I need to get my Fergie on. (I be up in the gym just working on my fitness). Yoga completely kicks my ass…and I love it. Friends, I have been contemplating, dare I say…running? I absolutely detest running/jogging/walking in general, but I know it would be a good idea considering my fitness goals. Ugh. Who wants to join me? Woo. Hoo.
All in all, I’ve been busy as usual and working out some aspects of my life I’m not satisfied. This is definitely a time for change and so far it’s proven to be rewarding. Taking positive steps and making hard decisions will pay off later on.
That’s all for now, kids. Take care. Oh, and remember: Never settle for anything less than the best. I know I don’t. 😉
Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, and Alexander Skarsgård were on the cover of Rolling Stone a little while ago and they looks gruesomely sexy.
I finished watching season 3 of True Blood. The whole vampire-warewolf thing is a little overdone everywhere, but for some reason I can’t quite stop watching. Now they’re introducing other mythological creatures into the series; it’s interesting.
I haven’t read the books but a close friend has and there are obviously some changes made. Can someone tell me what’s up with Lafayete and the whole nurse witchcraft? Sookie’s light? The crazy Fellowship of the Sun people. It’s crazy. But it’s addicting! Something that I really like about the show is how they incorporate the 1940’s glamour into the show. It’s subtle and mostly seen in the vampire community in the show. It’s lovely.
I like Jessica the new vampire, portrayed by Deborah Ann Woll. (I can see lesbians really falling for this straight girl. I can see might have the same effect on younger guys). Even though she starts off as a bratty character, I like her growth.
And I also really loved Pam, Eric’s vampire prodigy, played by Kristin Bauer. She’s hilarious and bitingly witty and bitchy. Reminds me of someone I know. Hmm…
I especially loved Talbot, Russell consort; he was especially sexy. His feminine air was charming and I thought he made for a sexy vampire. He was also quite sassy, which you know I loved.
The actor’s name is Theo Alexander, which I found looks quite different than his character in real life.
It looks like I’ll have to wait till next summer to find out what happens next. Oh, HBO, you’re such a tease.
I mentioned a couple days ago how our culture is increasingly fascinated with wealthy superficial housewives. Well, gays and gals, LOGO (a gay TV network) has launched it’s own reality version of the housewife mania, except with wealthy fabulous gay socialites. I believe the producers of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” are doing “The A-List: New York.”
“The A-List” premiered a couple weeks ago and although I didn’t watch it when it premiered, I’ve been watching it online each week. The cast includes photographer Mike Ruiz, as well as other somewhat known gays like the guy who dated Lance Bass and the guy who dated Marc Jacobs. Either way, it’s funny and sassy and some of these guys are easy on the eyes.
I nominate Brazilian model Rodiney Santiago as the cutest. He’s so cute with his little Brazilian accent; he may not be the brightest gay in the bunch, but he’s cute as a button. A sexy shirtless button.
“The A-List: New York” airs Mondays on LOGO. You can watch episodes on Logo’s website.
So periodically I like talking about men. Hot men. For no reason at all.
Today’s hot tottie is Nick Ayler.
I really don’t know much about Mr. Ayler. And, to be honest, I don’t think I need to know much about him. These pictures will do.
He graced the cover of DNA magazine, and he did so quite exquisitely. Yum.
Hello, friends. Are you familiar with any of the following quotes?
“Close your legs to married men!”
“Let me tell you something about my family: we’re as thick as thieves.”
“Don’t be tardy for the party…”
Friends, it seems our culture is obsessed with not only any reality TV, but ridiculous wealthy housewife drama television. And I…love it.
It seems like it all began here at home. I think the idea was inspired by ABC’s Desperate Housewives. Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Orange County’s sixth season is coming up and it’s filmed in Orange County, California (which is where I live!). This season, I’m sure there will be more petty drama about insensitive high-maintenance middle aged women and I’m sure America will be watching.
One of the earlier housewives, Jo de la Rosa, got her own spin-off show called “Date My Ex: Jo & Slade.” (Never watched it.)
Oh, I guess I should mention you might see your very own blogger (me) on this new season of The Real Housewives of OC. They were filming at a club I was at and I got some camera time; we’ll see if I make the cut: stay tuned!
After the success of Orange County Housewives, Bravo decided to launch a New York City version of the show. The housewives were very different, but just as deliciously bitchy and dramatic. New Yorker’s are known for their no-nonsense, straight-talking style and these housewives completely embody this attitude, with a dash of sophistication. There is, after all, a countess on the show. (Excuse me as I roll my eyes.) But I certainly appreciate the European influences and the sense of worldliness about the show.
Through the success of the show, a few housewives have writing books and Bethenny Franco got her own spin-off show called “Bethenny Getting Married?” where a pregnant Bethenny is planning her wedding and balancing her career and personal life.
No one knew just how HUGE The Real Housewives of Atlanta would turn out to be. You get some independent strong black women together who have money and power and all the hair in the world, and you have some great TV. I have to admit, this is probably my favorite group of housewives, because they’re simply so outrageous. Nene probably stands out as the most outrageous and outspoken; I love it. In fact, silver fox Anderson Cooper, formerly known as my celebrity crush, ranted and raved about Nene. Kim Solciak went on to record some catchy dance singles, despite her tone deaf vocals. Oh, okay, and for those of you who have kept up this season, Phaedra Park’s husband Apollo: hot tottie. The southern “belle’s” beau is simply gorgeous. So WHAT if he’s done some time in the slammer…I have yet another reason to watch the ATL Housewives.
And then we have the Real Housewives of New Jersey. Despite the big hair, less than pleasant accents, and questionable taste, it’s definitely a step above the tragic “Jersey Shore.” The Jersey housewives have plenty of table-throwing, hair extension-pulling, sex-tape, mafia, show-mom drama. All the housewives hate diplomatic housewife Danielle Staub and her “leaked” sex tape. I’m biased against these ladies because of where they live, but I’ve learned to look past the city and just see them for who they are…and their big hair.
Now, with the Real Housewives of DC, I wasn’t sure why they decided to do DC as the next city. Then I began watching and it all made sense. High profile couples near and around the white house getting into some serious scandals, so far as to appearing before the US Congress for “crashing” a White House party: it just makes for good TV. You’ve got a rude/sassy Brit, an interracial couple, lavish lifestyles and a fabulous and centered black democratic woman. What more could you want!
And the latest addition to the Real Housewives family: Beverly Hills. Although Orange County is only about an hour away from Beverly Hills, they are a world’s apart. I watched the premiere and these plastic ladies are quite powerful and have the big bucks. I guess Paris Hilton’s aunts are on the show? I’m not sure, but I do like the housewives so far. I really like look of the housewives and is probably the most appealing aesthetically.
So there you have it, ladies and gentlemen. Why are we so obsessed with the lifestyles of the rich and shallow? Is it because we secretly want to be like them? Or is it because we like how unattainable they are and so we watch with amazement from afar? Either way, I like to watch these ladies when they’re on because they’re so fabulous sometimes, even when they’re hot materialistic shallow messes.
I’ll take fabulous housewives over greasy guidos any day!
I can’t believe October is already here! I’m afraid that as I get older, the years just seem to fly by. I probably sound like I’m 50. Well, anyway, I’ve been swamped with schoolwork and other stresses, but I thought I’d drop by and say hi.
There have been a few things that I’ve been dying to share with you, so make sure you check back often. I also updated my “About Me” page, so you can check it out if you’d like. 🙂
Hope everyone’s doing well. Take care.
