Is Your Wallet Weighing You Down?


By Mikkel Hyldebrandt

Generally, a well-stuffed wallet is a good thing (if we’re talking stuffed with cash). But an overstuffed wallet with numerous credit cards, business cards, membership cards, rewards cards, and receipts is a major back pocket fashion faux pas.

Overstuffed Wallet FENUXEAn overly large can stretch your pants pockets making them look droopy when you pull your wallet. No one wants a droopy butt. Additionally, a large wallet will add extra volume to your behind giving it an unflattering (dare we say fattening?) look. Finally, the back pocket is the favorite spot for pick-pockets and a larger wallet is a bigger target.

 

For those of you who can’t imaging going without everything in your wallet it can be helpful to take a second look. Of course, you need IDs, cash, and a credit/debit card or two. But when was the last time you had to used all of those other cards stuffed in your wallet? Never, right?

Slim Wallet FENUXESo, instead of packing everything into your poor wallet, slim it down by only carrying what you’ll need. If your wallet has been stretched out of shape by months of overfilling you may want to consider a sleek card case. It will easily hold the necessities like an ID, cash, and a credit card. Plus, they’re as flat as your smartphone and can easily go in your front pocket where it will be barely noticed by others (or pick-pockets).

Burqa/Aura: Another Lady Gaga Leak?


By D. David Kinney

Pop music seems to be really leaky lately. Katy Perry’s “Roar” was leaked over the weekend and Lady Gaga’s “Applause” was leaked on Monday. So, what’s next on the leak list?

Another song from ARTPOP, Lady Gaga’s next album, is lighting up the internet today. The song seems to be called “Burqa” or “Aura” or maybe both. We don’t know because the song hasn’t been officially released yet and leaked versions use both.

This new song compares women who wear burqas with Gaga seeking privacy as a celebrity. Hmmm…OK. Gaga even asks if the listener wants to see her naked and “peek underneath the cover” which would negate the religious purpose of the burqa. It’s an odd analogy.

Will this song catch on? Why and how was it leaked? I’m sure we’ll find out…

A Gay, Gay Night On “The Colbert Report”


By D. David Kinney

Stephen Colbert tore Russian president Vladimir Putin a new one last night. Colbert was on fire with his trademark satirical humor and he even added a healthy dose of blatant mocking.

In an effort to explain Russia’s anti-gay climate Colbert said, “Russia will not tolerate the gays. Now this makes sense folks because their president is so damn straight.” Colbert then went on to show infamous photos of Putin shirtless doing various “manly” things. It’s a hoot.

However, more seriously, Colbert also calls out the International Olympic Committee for bowing down to Russia and Putin regarding LGBT athletes. Check out the entire segment below:

It was a gay, gay night on The Colbert Report. After reporting on Russia the show featured the story of Vicco, KY. Vicco is a tiny town in Kentucky with a population of a little over 300 people. It’s a blue collar town where hard work is a virtue and everyone knows your name. It’s also the smallest town in America to have passed an LGBT fairness ordinance. Oh yeah, they also have an openly gay mayor that seems pretty popular.

Well, he’s pretty popular with everyone except the local pastor, Truman Hurt. “Fairness is nothing but a trick word,” Hurt said. “We should be able to fire, deny them service, or deny them housing. I have nothing against gays. I don’t like their lifestyle. I don’t like ‘em trying to push it on me, and my family, and our communities. I think they oughta go back in the closet where they belong,” Hurt continued.

OK…who has been trying to get gay with this anti-gay bigot?

Truman Hurt Bigot

Kudos to The Colbert Report for highlighting these stories!

Top Five Movie Bulges


By Mikkel Hyldebrandt

Waiting for one scene with a revealing bulge is a terrible reason to watch a movie (especially if it’s of questionable quality from the start), but it’s an added bonus when a good movie surprises you with a little package definition. We’re not talking about full frontal like Michael Fassbender in Shame (impressive btw!) or obvious bulge-centric flicks like Magic Mike. We’re talking about those unexpected moments that make you sit up and pay a little bit more attention to the action on the screen.

Here are the top five movie moments that got our *ahem* eyes bulging:

Kick-Ass (2010) starring Aaron Taylor Johnson:

Kick-Ass

One of the break-out surprises of 2010 had Calvin Klein model Aaron Taylor Johnson defending justice as a self-made superhero. And while fighting crime he also revealed his obvious super powers down below. We can’t wait for the sequel where he’s older and buffed up…

The Paper Boy (2013) starring Zac Efron:

The Paper Boy Zac Efron

Zac Efron and Nicole Kidman star in this strange (bordering incomprehensible) movie where Efron spends most of the movie only wearing white briefs. Although the movie is a struggle to finish in its entirety, you get constant bulge shots so at least there is no waiting around.

Star Trek (2009) starring Chris Pine:

Star Trek Chris Pine

This successful re-vamp of the sci-fi classic starred a fairly unknown Chris Pine as Captain Kirk. This sexy scene featuring him in briefs getting friendly with a green alien rocketed him to stardom…

The Place Behind the Pines (2012) starring Ryan Gosling:

Ryan Gosling

The delectable Ryan Gosling is dyed blond and all stencil-tatted up for this movie about a stunt motorcyclist who turns to robbing banks to support his kid. The notable scene takes place when he is taken to jail and strips down to reveal a decent bulge!

Labyrinth (1986) starring David Bowie:

Labyrinth David Bowie

This 80s fantasy flick features singer/artist David Bowie as the goblin king Jareth who packs a decent size wand…

Stephen Fry Says Ban The Olympics In Russia


By Mikkel Hyldebrandt

British actor, author, and television presenter Stephen Fry has written an open and very emotional letter to British Prime Minister David Cameron, the International Olympics Committee, and IOC President Jacques Rogge, urging them to ban the 2014 Winter Olympics in Russia. Fry argues that the horrendous treatment and discrimination of LGBT people in Russia warrants the ban.

His letter is a scorching critique and heartfelt protest of the events taking place throughout Russia and compares the situation to what Hitler did to Jews. Here are some quotes from Stephen Fry’s open letter. For the full letter, click here

“I write in the earnest hope that all those with a love of sport and the Olympic spirit will consider the stain on the Five Rings that occurred when the 1936 Berlin Olympics proceeded under the exultant aegis of a tyrant who had passed into law, two years earlier, an act which singled out for special persecution a minority whose only crime was the accident of their birth.”

“Putin is eerily repeating this insane crime, only this time against LGBT Russians. Beatings, murders and humiliations are ignored by the police. Any defence or sane discussion of homosexuality is against the law.”

“The IOC absolutely must take a firm stance on behalf of the shared humanity it is supposed to represent against the barbaric, fascist law that Putin has pushed through the Duma.”

“An absolute ban on the Russian Winter Olympics of 2014 in Sochi is simply essential. Stage them elsewhere in Utah, Lillyhammer, anywhere you like. At all costs Putin cannot be seen to have the approval of the civilised world.”

“He is making scapegoats of gay people, just as Hitler did Jews. He cannot be allowed to get away with it.”

“I am gay. I am a Jew. My mother lost over a dozen of her family to Hitler’s anti-Semitism. Every time in Russia (and it is constantly) a gay teenager is forced into suicide, a lesbian “correctively” raped, gay men and women beaten to death by neo-Nazi thugs while the Russian police stand idly by, the world is diminished and I for one, weep anew at seeing history repeat itself.”

And with that said may we strongly recommend that you delve into Stephen Fry’s impressive movie career. As an openly gay actor, he has portrayed gay characters from the very start of his career. Two exceptional examples of his talent can be found in the wonderful Peter’s Friends from 1992 and the critically acclaimed bio-pic Wilde about the life of Oscar Wilde.

Justin Bieber Gets Naked (NSFW)


By D. David Kinney

Young male singers are having a hard time keeping their clothes on lately. Last week we brought you the story of Nick Jonas stripping off his shirt and taking a selfie. But, this week singer Justin Bieber has seriously upped the ante.

TMZ released two photos Monday of Bieber in the buff. Warning these images are NSFW:

Justin Bieber Nude

TMZ is reporting that the photos were taken during Thanksgiving a few months after Bieber’s 18th birthday. He was with his family at his grandmother’s house in Toronto. Rumor has it that Bieber annoyed his family by oversleeping and he serenaded his granny in the nude to lighten the mood (that’s kinda weird).

It seems safe to assume that someone very close to Bieber took these photos. But, who gave them to TMZ? Did the singer’s PR team leak them as part of his macho reinvention?

Bieber was in Atlanta last weekend for a concert downtown. He stayed at the Four Seasons on 14th Street in Midtown while he was here.
