Who hasn’t heard of Amy Winehouse by now, winner (in absentia) of 5 Grammies at this years awards. Who doesn’t love her sexy sultry voice when she sings?

Who knew she would be so hilarious on the British game show “Never Mind the Buzzcocks”?
I loved the response she gave to being asked if her hair was all her own…. “”yeah it’s mine (be)cause I bought it”
Hope you enjoy this video recently posted on youtube.
When I was writing this post I went on to Amazon to see about getting the code to link to her album “Back to Black” and on reading the reviews found someone who was complaining about her voice and her (?alleged?) drug habits…. in doing this they said Amy was “a self-destructive alcoholic with eating disorders and” (used) “tabloid headlines to get noticed.” Mentioning that she did not compare to the greats of:
Ray Charles (yes, the same Ray Charles who was a known heroin addict)
Duke Ellington (yes, the pothead)
Etta James (yes, another heroin addict) and
Phil Spector (alleged “misogynist and murderer”)
Make up your own minds, but while you think about it enjoy the next couple of songs written and/or sung by Amy, try listening to the lyrics.
Not that I think we need a cause to get naked, but if that’s what it’s going to take to get those hot Australian Rugby and Football players to take their clothes off then I’m going to support it. In all seriousness though Naked For A Cause is fighting breast cancer so why not support it?
These 28 rubgy and football players are stunning and the photographer (can’t find out who he is) does a great job of capturing their characters. You can get the photos either by buying prints, or in a calendar. Plus there’s bios and more on each player, and if you register, there’s videos and all sorts of other goodies.
These are just a few of the photos, there’s lots more on the site so support the cause and get over there and buy a print or a calendar – it’s a win win situation.
Sure, the spirit of the holiday is about giving, but now your shopping is done. You’ve trudged through the snow (or through the sweltering sun for our friends in the southern hemisphere) and you’ve battled crowds in malls and may even have bruises to show for it, but it’s all over and we think it’s now time to treat yourself.
In celebration of another shopping victory, Jockstrap Central is offering 15% off of everything from now until December 27th (midnight) – so treat yourself, you deserve it!
How Do I Do It?
It’s easy. As soon as you put any jockstraps and underwear into your shopping cart on Jockstrap Central, on the cart page, you’ll see a box to input a discount code. Just type “allaboutme” (without the quotes) and click the RECALCULATE button and 15% will be deducted from your total. You can continue shopping, or continue to the check out. Anything else you put into the shopping cart during that session will also have the 15% deducted.
American Thanksgiving has come and gone, and now Christmas shopping has officially begun but if you want to avoid the whole black Friday and general Christmas shopping crowds, we’ve got a great idea for you. Why not give someone a jockstrap this Christmas? It’s the perfect sexy gift for either someone you love or someone you’re interested in. You can buy in online and have it shipped directly to him and avoid the shops altogether!
Although a jockstrap alone is a pretty cool gift, it gets even better, as you can choose to have your jockstrap gift wrapped. Jockstrap Central has these really sharp perforated metal tins that fit jockstraps and underwear perfectly. They wrap the jockstraps in black tissue paper, close the tin and tie it with a black silk ribbon around it and finish it with a bow. This is one classy gift that’s sure to make a lasting impression – and with any luck, you’ll get a personal viewing when he tries it on. It’s a win win situation!
Jockstrap Central now carries over 100 styles of jockstrap, from the conservative sports jocks to the outrageous see-through and fetish ones. They also sell underwear, gym wear, tshirts and accessories – all modeled by these really hot guys. Here’s a small sampling:
Well, we’ve ordered our copies already, just in case you missed seeing this movie in theaters it’s being released on November 20th.
Not only did we order a copy for us, we also ordered a copy for my Mom in England and Deusex’s Mom is getting one for Christmas. We had my Mom visit us in Toronto earlier this year, and we took the opportunity to show her where parts of the movie were filmed – The “Hardy Har Hut” shown during the shoot at the corner of Eastern and Carlaw (Gale’s Snack Bar never looked so good!!!) Plus a few other locations around Town, it was so much fun.
Before and after the shoot!
Right across the street is the building that had the poster of the singing trio “The Dynamites” come to life on it, freshly painted white now – and kinda boring.
This version of the movie is based on the original 1988 movie by John Waters, but with the addition of all the music and lyrics from the Broadway show. Starring John Travolta, Michelle Pfeiffer, Christopher Walken and Nikki Blonsky as Tracy Turnblad it’s a must have for your DVD collection! Get it from Amazon by clicking the link below.
Let’s not forget the original movie starring Divine aka Harris Glenn Milstead, I guess i’m going to date myself now by telling you I had the opportunity to see Divine perform several times in London in the early/mid 80’s, twice at Heaven and twice at the London Hippodrome (now defunct). What can I say, Divine was one of the best live entertainers I’ve ever seen!
This last video was shot at the World Premiere of the 1988 version in Baltimore! Enjoy!
One of the many benefits of living in a large City is that Great events and shows come to you. Right now visiting our City (Toronto) is Cirque Du Soleil with their new show “Kooza.”
We had the good fortune to see this show on opening night (August 9th) with 5 members of my Family who were visiting from England. This event proved to be a fitting Grande Finale to their visit. Being their last night, what better send off could you possibly have!
For those of you not acquainted with Cirque Du Soleil (Circus of the Sun) a brief description may be in order. While it may be called a Circus, there are no animals! Only Humans, if you can call someone who can double over – BACKWARDS – human. The show is two hours of pure eye candy, from the muscled toned acrobats, to the fantastic custom made costumes for each and every performer the shows are a feast for the senses. One word of warning – you may end up catching flies due to the fact that your mouth will be open for 99% of the performance!
Following is a promo for this show Kooza, now on a North American Tour. Don’t feel left out if you don’t live in North America, there are other Cirque shows circling the globe, from Brazil to Japan and Australia. Once you’ve seen one show, it will become your ambition to see them all!
Enjoy the clip.
Unfortunately Kooza is not yet available on DVD, however many of their other performances are. Check out “La Nouba“. Unless you intend to travel to Orlando, Florida, seeing it on DVD is going to be your only option.
This next track is from La Nouba and is the “Fast Track”, trampolining taken to a new level. My only comment is that seeing them on youtube is okay, seeing them on DVD in your own home is great….seeing them live is out of this world!
If you enjoy this clip and live in the US or Canada, click here to order yours from Amazon “La Nouba US/Canada“
To order your copy if you live in Europe, the Middle East or South Africa, click here “La Nouba EU, ME, SA”
On a closing note, I’m going to see Kooza again tomorrow night! Don’t get jealous – get tickets!
Check out the official website to see when and where Cirque du Soleil will be appearing!
We all spend loads of money on the best jewelry, clothes, cars, appliances, but when it comes to cock rings, we go down to the local sex shop and buy a completely marked up industrial metal ring that was never made to go near your dick. Well, it’s about time you treated yourself (and your cock) to a cock ring that is not only made to measure, but is one of the most beautiful pieces of jewelry you’ll ever own…. Gear Essentials!
They are the Porche of cock rings. They are made of heavy duty polished metals that are completely seamless and they won’t pinch, chafe or cut your precious goods. They also make stunning gifts (I know, as I gave one to Adrian a few years ago – and he loves it!)
