Lady Gaga’s “Edge of Glory” music video came out a few weeks ago and if you haven’t seen it, you’re probably better off not. It was tragically underwhelming. It felt like a half-assed, thrown together cheap gimmick with little thought. There’s no story; it’s monotonous and uninspiring. The worst part is that I really love the song itself.
Check out the video below: [if you must]
Someone created a far more enjoyable video with a gay-marriage message attributed to the anthemic melody. Check it out:
I want to say this to Lady Gaga: GET IT TOGETHER, BITCH. xo
The new season of The A-List: New York premieres tonight on LOGO.
The housewife-type reality show is based on the lives of some fabulously dramatic gays in New York. I watched the first season and I was hooked. Some people don’t like reality TV. Others don’t like TV at all. Well, I’m all about it. Throw in some hot gays and token black girl? It’s bound to be fabulous.
Premiere’s tonight on LOGO at 10:00PM. Check out the LOGO website for more details.
In the past few months I’ve been re-watching The L Word with a few of my best friends. I absolutely LOVE this show. It’s on my top 5 favorite TV series of all time. I love the way it’s written, the acting, the directing, the weird lesbian music…I love it all. The show is about a group of mostly lesbian women who live in LA and their relationships. There are solid characters and they all grow throughout the seasons so much. Plus, hot lesbian sex. Who knew I’d be so into it?
I know I’ve mentioned the Real L Word on here before, the reality spin-off, but there’s nothing quite like the original. It’s just so good. Do you watch? The women are simply beautiful. Which one is your favorite character? I’m probably mostly a Bette with some Shane phases. You should watch and find out what that means…
I found this amazing artist João Paulo Tiago (Joapa). He’s created these Lady Gaga “chibis.” [You can enlarge the image by clicking on it.] Which one’s your favorite?
You can check out the artist’s deviantART profile here.
I feel like RuPaul is my homegirl. I started watching RuPaul’s Drag Race when its second season was on the air and I haven’t missed an episode since. When I was a teenager, I used to have a negative notion of what drag queens were and I didn’t want to be directly associated with drag queens. Well, I’ve come a long way, honey! Listen up, gays: embrace your inner queen! The time has come for your to lip-sync…for your LIFE!
I found these tee’s on Logo’s online shop. You can check ’em out here.
Btw, there’s more to come on RuPaul’s Drag Race, so keep posted.
You can also watch all three seasons of RuPaul’s drag race on the Logo website for freeeee!
Oh, and one more thing: DON’T F*#K IT UP!
It’s a new year and my life, as usual, is continually changing.
Life’s constant evolutionary cycles fascinate me and I find myself enjoying life everyday.
I know some of you have been aching to know what’s been going on in my life. I apologize for the brief hiatus on my blog, but I’ve been busy enjoying life! If you follow me on twitter or are my friend on Facebook then you’ve been somewhat updated on some of my adventures. If not, check out the newly updated menu at the top of the page and check me out!
I’d also like to announce that I’ve made some changes to the site, in case you haven’t noticed and I’ve launched a video on vimeo. I find I can surpass the stupid music property laws that youtube has on vimeo. I want to keep this blog fun and interesting and some time to time a bit personal so you guys know what’s going on with me. Tell me what you think about the changes!
I’ll have more of a chance to update now that the semester is starting again and I will once again find myself avoiding homework and procrastinating, pretending deadlines don’t exist and pulling all-nighters. No, I intend on being more on top of things this semester. Last semester went well and I’m glad I earned good grades. I’m excited for this new semester and I look forward to discovering my professors and new courses.
I’m taking math (shoot-me-please), psychology: adulthood and aging, TV/film, Chicano history (gotta get in touch with my ROOTS, ese), and Shakespeare. Yes, I know, Shakespeare. Some have asked why I would do such a thing to myself. Others have looked at me with pity and sorrow. I’ve decided to take the class because 1) it fulfills a general education requirement to transfer and 2) I really haven’t read or studied a lot of shakespeare. In high school I read the basic plays and I’ve even seen a few plays, but it wasn’t until my lit class last semester that I actually got a chance to review form and study a lot of poetry, including Shakespeare. So yes, the idealist student in me actually cares about learning and I feel I can greatly benefit from this class, not to mention find that it’s yet another challenge I step up to. EducatedGay.
I took a trip out to Las Vegas last month. I went with some friends and it was an amazing trip!
There was, of course, plenty of drinking and fun, but we kept it classy and watched Phantom of the Opera at the Venetian. Holy…smokes. It was…unbelievably good. The theater itself was beautiful and all the effects and music and simply everything was just so good. I’m so glad everything worked out so well. Vegas proved to be a very relaxing and sort of care-free experience. Ugh. Loveit.
Christmas was really great. I spent it with family and it was just really rewarding and special to take the time to spend time with people I love. New Year’s was fun. I spent it with friends at a party in LA. It was a fun festive season!
There have been some really crazy changes going on in my personal life. There are many times where I feel acutely conflicted internally and others when I’ll feel in almost perfect harmony with the world. It’s almost as if there’s been a thorn in my heart and I just ignore it most of the time, but sooner or later I’ll have to deal with it and tend to the wound. I hope I’m ready when that day comes.
I’ve gotten some feedback saying people enjoy reading about my life on this blog, so here you are! Haha
I hope everyone had a fun and safe holiday season. Any year’s resolutions? Mine’s to carpe diem and maybe do a little traveling. I have another Vegas trip coming up next month. It has hot-tranny-mess written all over it. Loveit.
As you may or may not know, I love music artist Pink. I always have.
She stood out when she first came out as an R&B diva and then later unleashed her inner rockstar. Throughout the years I’ve enjoyed her music and her attitude. She’s just so no-nonsense and tough. It’s a fusion between feminine beauty and this sort of rough masculinity she exudes. I love how she’s open about her political views (check out the song she wrote for the president), her stance against conforming to a typical dumb bimbo or other stereotypes (yes, she’s a feminist), her efforts to promote empowerment, independence, strength, self-love and self-respect. She’s sexy and has killer lungs; she’s just an amazing vocalist. Her raspy belting is intoxicating. So yes, I’m a Pink fan.
Well! She released her newest music video for her latest single “Raise Your Glass.” Check it out:
**UPDATE: I think it’s great that Pink is pregnant! It was in the media that she and Christina Aguilera and Pink were friendly about being moms and even talked about setting up a playdate for the kids. Ugh. So cute. Also, it seems that VEVO doesn’t want the “Raise Your Glass” video on my blog, SO you can check out Pink’s video on YouTube 🙂
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. 😉
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.
