It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you?

Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me.

Tanning: Expectations vs. Reality

I believe when you lay out in the sun for a tan, these are your...

But... if I'm correct, this is what happens in...

Gay Movies to Watch: Eating Out - Drama Camp

Yay!!! I'm so excited for the 4th installment of Eating Out!!  

Eating Out: Drama Camp brings back the unbelievably gorgeous Chris Salvatore, and Daniel Skelton in their respective roles, Zack & Casey.  The movie will also introduce us to a whole new crop of delicious man-meat, including "Make Me a Supermodel" contestant Ronnie Kroell as Beau, and "Big Brother's" Steven Daigle as Connor.

My partner, Ryan doesn't like these movies, but I simply adore them! Yes, Q. Allan Brocka doesn't spend $500,0000 to make an Oscar-winning movie, but who cares! “Shakespere didn’t have cum shots.”  He's playing to us gays, and I absolutely commend him for it!  Though, most straight people do love watching gay movies, and gay shows.
This next movie, will have Zack & Casey enrolling in Dick Dickey's Drama Camp, where you guessed it... drama ensues.  When Casey finds out Zack has been cast in the show, "The Taming of the Shrew," alongside Benji (whom he despises), Casey takes matters into his own hands, literally :-).  Does this spell "The End" for Zack & Casey?  We'll have to wait and see...

The Voice Crowns It's First Winner

And the winner is....  

Really? Do I have to go there?  

Ugh, as I have stated all season, Javier Colon does nothing for me - he is just more of the same.  So instead of going for someone amazing and really outrageous, like Beverly, Dia, or Vicci, America chooses Javier?  And to think that only 2 percent of the votes separated the top two, is mind-boggling to me.  What a Hot Mess!  I'm sorry America, but you always get it wrong! Always!

About the only good thing about last night's results show, were the duets the finalists sung with people other than their coaches.  Beverly McClellan sang, "Good Life" with Ryan Tedder from One Republic, Dia Frampton sang, "The House That Built Me" with Blake Shelton's wife, Miranda Lambert, Vicci Martinez sang, "Drops of Jupiter" with Pat Monahan, the lead singer from Train, and Javier Colon sang, "Landslide" (how fitting) with Stevie Nicks.
Other than that, you can catch the Top 8 contestants, Xenia Martinez, Nakia, Frenchie Davis, Casey Weston, Javier, Dia, Beverly, and Vicci, as they kick off their summer tour in Los Angeles on July 27th.  Regardless of the ouctome, Ryan and I really did like the show, and we're looking forward to the second season in 2012.

Feel free to watch last night's duets after the jump if you're interested. Their coaches really did say some nice things to their young artists. Enjoy!

I Quote That - Sometimes Reasons Suck

Female Armor Sucks

Ever notice how female characters in video games hardly ever have any body armor, unlike their male counterparts?

What a Hot Mess: Holy Exploding Eyeballs, Batman!

And people ask why I don't like going to the doctor, especially dentists and eye doctors!  Well, this is the reason why...

Imagine going to see your eye doctor, and he says to you, "Oh Billy Bob, it looks like you may need cataract surgery."

Okay, it doesn't sound too bad, right?  If it's going to help you see a little better, why not?  Mr. Jose Goncalves agreed, and before he knew it, his eye had exploded.  Well, not in that particular order, but far worse.

So Mr. Jose goes in for this fairly common procedure, when the resident doctor treating him didn't administer the anesthetic properly.  Instead of injecting the drug into the back of his eye like he's supposed to, he injects it directly into his eyeball.  And since, it didn't seem to be working like it should, he stops administering it...NOT!!!  Instead, he injects him with even more anesthetic, until his eye simply explodes!  Yeah, you read that right, EXPLODED!

Supposedly the resident doctor's training was "seriously inadequate."*coughs* no shit Sherlock - what a Hot Mess! Literally!
“It is clear that Dr. Wang’s training was seriously inadequate,” Bernard said. “This should have been a routine procedure as it is for countless people every day. When proper techniques are used, this particular complication should never occur.”
“Jose suffered excruciating pain after that botched surgery and continued to have severe pain for months afterward,” Bernard said. “The damage to the eye is obvious because his iris is missing and his eyelid droops. If anything should ever happen to the undamaged left eye, he could face total blindness.”
What did Jose get out of all this? Nearly $1 million dollars from the Department of Veterans Affairs.  He was a 60-year-old Army veteran.

Back In The Day - Cola Classic Through The Years

I think they forgot to add the plastic bottle to the equation.  I will say this, there was nothing better than drinking Coca Cola out of a glass bottle.  No taste could compare.  Agreed?

Little Nicky

Awww how sweet is this, cutie patootie, Nick Jonas (you know? the young muscular stud you see here in the escalator), took his 11-yr old brother, Frankie, to see Cars 2 in California over the weekend. 

According to nickjonline he said, "I think for this particular competition, I have to keep it in the mind-set of young artists at this moment, so I’d say, like, somebody with the overall star power and star qualities of Willow Smith, with the artistry of a Greyson Chance, who is really talented, and then – I’m trying to think – like a really little Nick Jonas!"

What a hottie, I mean what a sweetie. :-)

Mind-Boggling News: Man Faces 10 years in Prison and Up To a $10,000 Fine

So... I'm reading the Houston Chronicle this morning when I read the most mind-boggling news ever!  No, really.  

Long story short, a man got pulled over by a cop early Tuesday morning for having no headlights on (been there, done that), and he noticed the man's face was bloody.  He looked outside the vehicle, and noticed his front windshield was caved in.

I know what you're thinking... blah, blah, blah, we've heard that before.  Well, get this...

The cop also saw a body on the passenger seat, partially under the dashboard, along with a severed leg.  So you can just imagine the shock the cop must have felt, because I'm in shock just writing this.  Jesus.

According to the investigation, the man struck a 32-year old man whose ford explorer had broken down on the side of the road, and continued to drive 3 miles before he was pulled over.  The missing leg was later found at the site of the explorer.
Furthermore, the Police said the driver told the deputy he had hit something on the freeway and that he didn't know the victim was in the passenger seat beside him.
This is just horrible, our hearts and prayers go out to both families.

The driver now faces 10 years in prison, and up to a $10,000 fine.  Pretty steep, don't you think???

I Quote That - Some People

So let me get this STRAIGHT...

Kelsey Grammar can end a 15-year marriage by phone, 
Larry King is on divorce #9, 
Britney Spears had a 55-hour marriage, 
Jesse James & Tiger Woods, while married, were having sex with EVERYONE, 
53% of Americans get divorced and 30-60% cheat on their spouses. 
Yet, same-sex marriage is going to destroy the institution of marriage?

My friend, Jessie, posted this on her Facebook wall this morning, and I just had to share it with the rest of the world. 
Thank you, Jessie - I love you always!

The Voice: Final Performances

You know I'm going to be straight-forward with you.  

All season long I've been saying how great The Voice has been with the production, time, and sets of the show, but last night's 2-hour-long fiasco was a bit much.

The coaches commenced the show with another performance by Queen, "Under Pressure." It really wasn't that great, and when you have to see them again on stage singing with their team finalist, it kinda makes you wonder, is this promotion really necessary?  Geez, the judges have gotten more airtime than the contestants.  They also had a Ne-Yo duet with Pit Bull, and a Brad Paisley performance on top of that.

For their final performance, each of the contestants sang an original song.  Many online sites, including my partner, Ryan, mentioned that they should have sang a cover instead of an original.  I could "maybe" agree with that, but then again, I can't.  If you would have given one of these original songs, to let's say, Adam Lambert, or hell, all of the judges - they would have belted these same songs out like there were no tomorrow.  Seriously, if you cannot take an original song, and make it your own, then you have some problems.

Let's watch the performances:

Javier Colon sang "Stitch by Stitch" written by Rodney Jerkins.  Honestly, I was falling asleep listening to this number.  First, the title sounds like something out of Disney's Lilo & Stitch, and finally, like I've said it all season long.  He's just "more of the same."  Nothing unique about his voice.  If he wins, its because of "fan favorites," and not-so-much "an out of this world" performance.

Vicci Martinez sang "Afraid To Sleep" written by Butch Walker. In my opinion, this was the worst of the night.  "Afraid To Sleep," really?  You probably had difficulty sleeping last night, after this hot mess.  At this point, I'm really disappointed with the contestants.

Dia Frampton sang "Inventing Shadows" written by Frasier T. Smith.  If I had to rank last night's performances based on this song, I'd have to say Dia would be in the top 2.

Beverly McClellan sang "Lovesick" written by Bill Appleberry. Obviously the best performance of the night, Beverly actually sang the song like all the others should have.  My guess is, favoritism will decide the winner, and not so much their talent.

And Your Odds of Dying From This Are...

So, what are the odds of you dying from Salmonella, or better yet, a new identity under the witness protection program?  You'd be surprised  - this chart lays it out on the "line" for you.  

Hmmm, not too sure I like the odds of me dying of a Stroke, Cancer, and Heart Disease though.

What a Hot Mess: Crazy Bitch Goes OFF On Bus Driver

The title to the video below was the perfect title for this post.  This video is laden with profanity beyond anything I've ever heard.  Well...... nevermind that, mine and Ryan's friend, Renee can give her a run for some money.

I swear, every sentence has a curse word in it.  If you're at work, I highly recommend you turn the volume down, or wear some headphones, because this crazy bitch goes off on the bus driver like there's no tomorrow.  "You need to shut the f*ck up and drive your bus, you miserable old f*cking man!...You f*cking honky!"

Do people really still use that word? Honky? Really? What a Hot Mess!

The Joys of Being a Parent: Miltary Dad Wrapped Up As A Gift

Geez, if this video doesn't bring you to tears, I don't know what will.  Two little kids are taken by surprise when they find a huge box with their names on it.  Unbeknownst to them, their Dad has returned from deployment to surprise them.  When they see who pops out, they become so overwhelmed with joy, they begin to cry, more-so the little girl.  I have no earthly idea what it feels like for a child to see their Dad off to war, much less knowing if, and when he'll return.  This surely is about The Joys of Being a Parent.  God Bless Our Troops!

Isn't This The Truth...

LMAO. How many times have you gone out with your friends to have one beer? LOL. For me, going out for a drink is like Lay's used to call it, "You Can't Eat Just One."  In this case, it's the other way around, "You Can't Drink Just one." :-)

Movies to Watch: Apollo 18

This looks like it could possibly be a good movie.  As to why it keeps getting pushed back, I have no idea.  Maybe that's a government conspiracy as well.  According to it's You Tube page, "in 2011, the release date was pushed back to January 6, 2012.  Apollo 18 is currently scheduled for release on January 6, 2012. Originally scheduled for March 2011, the film's release date was moved three times during the year (to April 2011, January 2012, August 2011, then September 2, 2012)"

The trailer is pretty darn freaky, I actually liked it.  Supposedly the footage in the movie "was found," and is not theatrical makeup.  I don't know, it sounds kinda fishy to me.  Maybe Michele, here, can answer it for you. LOL.

Here's the description from the trailer's YouTube page:
Apollo 18 is a found footage-style film set in December 1974, about a post-Apollo 17 mission to the Moon that takes on a premise of why NASA discontinued the Apollo moon missions. The plot involves a government coverup of the Apollo 18 mission after parasitic lifeforms on the Moon discovered the crew and began to attack them. Much of the back-story remains unknown; however, the movie posters in English indicate the Russian KGB role in Soviet lunar conspiracy and the Russian movie posters show inscriptions in English suggesting an American government cover up in lunar conspiracy. In the trailer, an American astronaut finds a dead cosmonaut and a Soviet LK Lander on the lunar surface.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Dimension Films head Bob Weinstein denied the film was a work of fiction, stating that "We didn't shoot anything, we found it. Found baby!". This claim was met with some skepticism. The film will be distributed by Dimension Films.

Spacesuits Over The Years

I thought this chart (infographic) was great and had to share it. Especially since I'm about to post the creepy trailer to Apollo 18.

Movies in Rewind: Green Lantern

If you were planning on seeing the Green Lantern, don't!  If you already saw it, I'm so sorry.

I would wait for it on Blu-ray or DVD.  Why?  Because you can do more with  your $8.50 ticket (if you're in Houston, TX), than spending it on a movie that was mediocre at best.

Yes, you get to see Ryan Reynold's buff body running and flying all over the place, but he was clothed in CGI for most of the film - 99 percent of it.  Sorry little gay boys, but you only catch Ryan half-naked, maybe twice.  While I'm not too familiar with the Green Lantern comics, word on the street is, the movie didn't do it justice.  I'll be honest, I would have rather spent my money watching Super 8 again, but I didn't dislike the movie either.  It had it's good moments and it's bad.

Here's the movie in two sentences or less.  Muscle alien drops from space, and before he dies, gives his ring to Hal Jordan aka Green Lantern, who says he doesn't deserve such an honor - and says it about 20 times throughout the movie.  At first he's afraid, then he's not, until he convinces the big kahunas in the sky, "we have nothing to fear, but fear itself," and heads down to kill this bad evil scientist with a big head, when he manages to kill a large cloud-like monster afterwards, The End.

Ryan and I didn't stay through the credits like we usually do, because our asses were hurting like hell in the cheap-ass theater we went to.  According to online sources, there was a clip in the credits that we missed.  Well guess what?  I have the ending right here after the jump.  Don't watch it if you don't want to be spoiled.

Movies to Watch: Immortals - The Latest Trailer

What's hotter than watching hot men with barely any clothes on fighting against each other? Nothing! LOL.   

Tarsem Singh's movie, Immortals has all the fantasies women often desire, the warriors men wish they could be, and the erotica to make every gay boy's dream come true.

Cover Wars 5

Cover Wars is going to be real interesting this time around...

There were so many covers to this song that I couldn't post every single one of them against each other.   So, because all of them were unique in their own way, I separated them into vocalist categories; Best Group, Best Male, Best Female, and Best Teen.  

Last Week's Winner
Each of the category winners will get a Cover Wars Gold Record that I will personally email them.  It's not an actual vinyl record, but a recognition award just for being on my blog, so your vote is really important. 

It was a difficult decision, but I chose the "best of the best" out of the videos below.  After listening to over 200 covers over the weekend, I chose 50 that I liked, and managed to get it down to 22.  At this point it was becoming really, really difficult, because I liked every one of them.  This morning I came up with the idea of making it a "win by category" issue, and once again, as hard as it was, I was able to bring it down to 10 covers.  I tried to bring the Group category down to two, but I couldn't.

The song being covered is "Grenade" by Bruno Mars.  I think that everyone who has ever dated, been in a relationship, or has been married can relate to this song.  The lyrics speak for themselves:
Gave you all I had
And you tossed it in the trash
You tossed it in the trash, you did
To give me all your love is all I ever asked,
Cause what you don't understand is
I’d catch a grenade for ya (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Throw my hand on a blade for ya (yeah, yeah, yeah)
I’d jump in front of a train for ya (yeah, yeah , yeah)
You know I'd do anything for ya (yeah, yeah, yeah)
In order to vote, all you have to do is leave a comment, and paste the following into the message:

Group Category: 
Female Category: 
Male Category: 
Teen Category: 

Type who you're voting for next to each category. The names are down below to the left of each video.  I hope you enjoy listening to these covers as much as I did.  Thank you for your cooperation. - Blade aka Peter

Coffee: The Greatest Addiction Ever

Caffeine is an insecticide that actually kills or paralyzes bugs munching on it's tree.  It doesn't kill us, because we would need about 90 cups of coffee to equal the same amount of pain the buggies endure, and even then we pee it out constantly, so the chances of us dying from it are slim to none.
This is pretty cool video - it's only 4 minutes so I recommend watching it. Where does Caffeine come from?  Who drinks it the most?  How is it grown?  These are just a few of the questions the video answers for you.

Where Is All The Water? - Continued

Last Monday, when I originally posted "Where Is All The Water?," I didn't realize someone had actually cut off part of the chart.  While doing research for my "Foods That Will Make You Fat" series, I stumbled upon the other half of the chart. This took me by surprise, because I wasn't looking for it. Too Weird.  In either case, here is the other half of last week's post, "Where Is All The Water?".

Foods That Will Make You Fat - Issue No. 14

I've grappled with the title of this series since it's inception. I don't know, "Foods That Make You Cringe," just wasn't working for me.  While most of the food I was posting made me cringe, there were times I was posting foods people actually wanted to try.  So, without further adieu, I welcome you to my re-vamped series, "Foods That Will Make You Fat."  My favorite is the Tur-Bacon-uck-en.  Yeah, you try pronouncing that too.
Triple-Stack French Toast and Grilled Cheese Burger
I don't even know what to say about this sandwich.  It looks like it would stop one's heart from beating.  There was no description available, but it looks like it has bacon, cheese, ground beef,  and it looks like it could have egg, but not sure on that one. In either case, this will definitely make you fat.
Towering multi-stuffed Oreo
Just in case you don't know, the Oreo is the fattest cookie on the planet - that's mass produced anyway.  I'm sure we could make a cookie with a higher fat content if we tried.  Oh wait, someone already has.  Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
Seriously? A chicken inside a duck, stuffed inside a turkey, covered in Bacon?  Really?  Oh my lord, I'm sure this would be a great family favorite at Thanksgiving... if no one died of a stroke after the first bite!  You think this would make you fat?  I think so.  

For previous issues of "Foods That Will Make You Fat" click here.
Giving credit where credit is due, this series is based on the popular website and book of the same name, "This Why You're Fat."
