"Over The Moon" Mike Clifford

Enjoying Life
Mike Clifford
When Mike Clifford set out to do a dance & ballad cover of the Louis Armstrong chestnut "What A Wonderful World" he had no idea the project would be as successful as it is.

The video for the dance version recently passed 1,000 plays and still going strong. As Mike puts it he is "Over The Moon" about it.

Not bad for a guy who was Teen Idol for a minute in the 60's with the hit Close To Cathy, eh?

So join Mike in celebrating his success and give the video a whirl below.

What a wonderful world, indeed!

Just Because...J-Lo & A-Rod

J-Lo & A-Rod Sitting In A Tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G...
Just Because it's Monday, just because it's hot everywhere and I feel like making it hotter & just because they're both so pretty I present to you this image of sizzling couple Jennifer Lopez & Alex Rodriguez.

This is one of those pairings that publicists dream about. Both are rich, photogenic and hot, hot, hot! Not to mention buzz worthy. You never know a PR lackey may have actually got them together in the first darn place.

Look they even dress to the nines for a simple evening of dining out while in Miami, Florida. One of my least favorite cities in the United States for the record. 

OK back to the subjects at hand. When was the last time a celebrity couple seemed so equal to one another in every little way I ask you?

Answer me, I'm waiting....

Cool Daddy Alert!

Who's Your Daddy?
Liev Schreiber & Kai
This image of Liev Schreiber and his 8 year old son Kai, dressed as Harley Quinn at Comi-Con in San Diego yesterday is presently an Internet sensation. Of course it's because Daddy Schreiber let his male offspring dress as a female comic book character. This of course automatically gives one new insight into who Liev is, one Cool Daddy!

Now of course there is a lot of people making statements about the photo saying how great it is that Liev is accepting of his gay son etc...the thing is at this point it is pretty much an assumption as I don't believe Kai has come out and there has been no statement issued to that effect.

While, it is a pretty safe conclusion to draw, it could also mean he simply likes strong female figures, or maybe he will end up being a cross dressing heterosexual. 

Sexuality is such a fluid thing especially in this day and age when people are allowed the freedom to be more open about it, so perhaps it is a little early to label an 8 year old boy especially one that the only thing the public really knows about him is that he has a Cool Daddy who let him dress as Harley Quinn.

Think about it, but not too much, OK?

Shirtless Saturday - Ansel Elgort

Where's The Beef?
Ansel Elgort
With Baby Driver currently hot, hot, hot it seemed only fitting to show off it's even hotter star Ansel Elgort baring his upper body and pretty much the rest of it as well.

Yep, Ansel is darn near naked in this photo of him in a barely there swimsuit, lucky us that he's such a giver.

Although I have yet to see it, I hear Baby Driver is quite good and eventually I will give it a watch, but until them I will be content looking at this image of Ansel and wondering what's underneath those trunks.

Join me won't you? 

Happy Saturday & other things!

The Horror: Lycan

Clap for the Wolfman???

Lycan marks the feature debut of Bev Land. The horror / thriller based on the popular urban legend of the "Talbot County Werewolf". Parade Deck Films will handle the movie's theatrical release, followed by disc, digital and VOD platforms from MVD Entertainment.
Synopsis: When six college kids in a sleepy Southern town are assigned a group history project, one of them sets in motion a horrific fate when he proposes they head into the Georgia backwoods to uncover the truth about the hundred year old urban legend of Emily Burt, the "Talbot County Werewolf".
Lycan stars Dania Ramirez ("Devious Maids" X-Men: The Last Stand, American Reunion, Premium Rush), who will be starring this Fall on ABC's hit show "Once Upon a Time" as princess "Cinderella." The film boasts a strong ensemble cast that includes three-time Emmy Award nominee Gail O'Grady ("NYPD Blue", "Revenge", Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo), Parker Croft ("Little Big Lies", "Lewis and Clark"), Vanessa Angel (Kingpin, Hall Pass, "Weird Science"), Rebekah Graf (Entourage), Kalia Prescot (The Hunger Games), Jake Lockett (Transpecos), Alina Puscau (X/Y, Conan The Barbarian) and Craig Tate (12 Years a Slave, USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage).

Making his directorial debut with Lycan, Bev Land talks about his experience in bringing his vision to life with his co-producer and star (and wife), Dania Ramirez. "I knew that the journey of making this film independently would be a challenge filled with a tremendous amount of blood, sweat and tears (pun intended) and I know we have something special that genre fans are going to appreciate. Fortunately for me I was lucky enough to be able to take this journey with Dania, who I not only respect and adore as an artist, but someone I also love as a human being."
Lycan producer and star Dania Ramirez agrees... 

"I am a firm believer that with hard work and dedication anything is possible.  I have been in front of the camera for quite some time and I feel blessed to have been able to help lead the team that made this movie possible.  When I met my talented husband, I said to him "I want to produce films"and Bev looked at me and said "Then let's do it together... I will write you a leading character with the dimension and depth that you are capable of playing but haven't had the opportunity and YOU will produce it for me!" The journey of independent film making doesn't allow much room for star like treatment and producing one proved to be more challenging than I could've ever imagined. Being the producer and star meant making every phone call and scheduling every shooting day also had to correspond with taking the necessary time to put on the clothes of my character and live in her before hearing the word "Action".  I also want to add that Latin female leading roles are rare in this industry and this one I think is one of a kind. The sense of accomplishment I feel today having not only brought our baby "Lycan" into this world but now having Eric D. Wilkinson at MVD Entertainment and Michael Ingram at Parade Deck Films distribute the film is overwhelming."
Having followed the film's production and progress on the internet and social media, MVD Entertainment's Director of Acquisitions Eric D. Wilkinson reached out to Peter Van Steemburg at ICM Partners for an introduction to the filmmakers... 

"I'm a huge fan of the horror genre and MVD Entertainment has been a long time supporter and champion of independent films. Peter gave me the opportunity to screen Lycan and I just loved it. I won't give away any spoilers but I will say that Lycan messes with your expectations throughout with an ending that you will not see coming!" In regards to getting Lycan into theaters, Wilkinson explains, "MVD has built a great partnership with Parade Deck Films. I was happy to share this movie with them because CEO Michael Ingram has done a great job in exposing some of these smaller movies theatrically, giving independent filmmakers a chance for their work to be seen by audience on the big screen, as they intended, and at the same time, help build awareness for the film after it's theatrical run for the VOD, digital and physical windows for the months following."
Lycan will open theatrically in select cities on August 4th, followed by disc, digital and VOD platforms from MVD Entertainment on September 26th. Pre-order the DVD now at MVDshop.comor at Amazon.

Michael's Musings

Give It A Name
Michael Shinafelt
"Come on everybody, I say now let's play a game, I betcha I can make a rhyme out of any body's name. The first letter of the name' I treat it like it wasn't there" - The Name Game, Shirley Ellis 

For some random, yet most likely not one this song came into my mind this particular week. I am not about or above calling names when they are deserved. However I am responding to the timelessness of this song and it's many interpretations. Especially the iconic performance of Jessica Lange's rendition of it on American Horror Story: Asylum.

This week we play the name game.

Male sure you always wear underwear. You don't want your "V" on TMZ

Don't make me unleash the powers of the underworld  

New Acronym DAB = Dense Ass Beotch 

I'd like to indict on more than three pubic hairs and a confession

Sometimes you need to do push-ups with someone on your back

Porn for the paranoid 

Seriously?! Who Dressed You?!
Mariah Carey
Dear Mariah, WTF?! Get a new stylist and some glasses that are preferably not rose colored

Traci Lords coming soon in "Swedish Dicks"

I have something most guys don't 

I played an online avatar game where you push Donald Trump off a cliff into a volcano, laughed every time I did it, I couldn't keep track of how many times that was

Sometimes: "You kicked my ass" is always the correct response 

My name is Hyena I am 26
