Life Hack, Lady Gaga

When In Doubt, Gaga It Out!
Lady Gaga

I have been battling what I think are allergies for the past few days, but could indeed be a cold, I can't quite get a handle on it. Last night was the best nights sleep I have had in a week. I woke up feeling refreshed and then as if on cue the coughing started it and was relentless. It is starting to wane now, we shall see where it all lands.

Which brings me to this image of Lady Gaga performing at Coachella, as you can tell I am a fan of Lady G and this capture is great. It's colorful, exciting and gave me something to focus on during one of my hacking fits this morning. They should package her as cough syrup she made tossing up a lung a more pleasant experience. 

So if you ever need relief from a cough and have nothing available, I give you this life hack tip: focus on Lady Gaga. The more you know...!

The Blood Of Unicorns

Unicorn
Katy Perry
Apparently Katy Perry is a certified Unicorn. You heard me correctly, Katy like many, except myself, was eager to try Starbuck's Unicorn Frappuccino. Well that happiness quickly turned to disgust as she snapped an Instagram photo of herself spitting out the less than delightful concoction with this caption:

"I couldn't handle drinking my own blood" 

She then sprouted four legs and a horn in the center of her head and gored the staff at Starbuck's in a rage that could only come from a pissed off Unicorn cannibalizing one of their own. OK, kidding on that one. 

This brew has been so publicly reviled why does anyone still have curiosity in actually trying it?! Just looking at it makes me want the hurl!

Now aren't you happy?

Sunday Schwing! Luke Perry

Luke Perry
Before He Gets Naked
On Oz
I recently saw a re-run of Law & Order: SVU featuring Luke Perry portraying a rapist. A far cry from his teen heartthrob days as bad boy Dylan McKay on Aaron Spelling's Beverly Hills 90210.

This got me thinking about other adult roles Perry has essayed post playing every teenage girl (and some boys) favorite rouge. Well none of them are as adult as the time he played the Reverend Jeremiah Cloutier on HBO's prison drama OZ.

One of the thing OZ is known for is lots of male frontal nudity. Yes I am talking penis here. Most notorious of the actors baring  all was Law & Order: SVU alum Christopher Meloni. Not one to disappoint Perry too showed his family jewels to the delight of his legions of fans.

Thus you guessed what I did next, can't you? "Yes" I paid a visit to Tye Briggs Favorite Hunks & Other Things to see if he had posted Luke exposed on the show. Butt (pun intended) of course he did, you can click on the link below and check him out. I promise you won't be disappointed!!!

Now quite reading and start Schwinging!

Star Lord Gets A "Star"

Star Lord, Has A Star & So Does
Chris Pratt
Just in time to help hype the upcoming release of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Chris Pratt aka Star Lord, gets his star on Hollywood's Walk Of Fame.

Yes, the man from the stars, who is a Lord portrayed by Pratt in the Marvel films now has been immortalized as a star on a sidewalk in Hollywood so you can walk all over him with your boots, or whatever your footwear of choice is.

Alright enough of my irreverence, the lovable Chris had this to say to his wife Anna Faris at his star ceremony: “I want to thank my wife Anna, I love you. You’ve given me so much. You gave me the greatest star in the galaxy in my little boy, I love him and I love you.”

Awwwwwwwwww...now you know what to get me for my Birthday, a Chris Pratt type of guy.

Happy Earth Day!

Film Buff Friday: The Climber

Joe Dallesandro beyond Andy Warhol's Factory...

THE CLIMBER [Blu-ray + DVD] (May 16th)

After shooting cult favorites Flesh for Frankenstein and Blood for Dracula in Europe, Joe Dallesandro spent much of the seventies making movies on the continent. In France, he worked with auteurs like Louis Malle and Walerian Borowczyk, and in Italy he starred in all manner of genre fare from poliziotteschi (Savage ThreeSeason for Assassins) to nunsploitation (Killer Nun). 

The Climber follows in the tradition of gangster classics such as The Public Enemy and Scarface as it charts the rise and inevitable fall of small-time smuggler Aldo (Dallesandro). Beaten and abandoned by the local gang boss after he tries to skim off some profits for himself, Aldo forms his own group of misfits in order to exact revenge... 

Written and directed by Pasquale Squitieri (Gang War in NaplesI Am the Law), The Climber is a prime example of Italian crime cinema - a high-octane action-thriller full of brawls, fistfights, shootouts and explosions!

FEATURES
- Brand new 4K restoration of the film from the original negative
- High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) and Standard Definition DVD presentations
- Original Italian soundtrack in uncompressed PCM mono with optional newly-translated English subtitles
- Alternative English-language soundtrack with optional English subtitles for the deaf and hard-of-hearing
Little Joe's Adventures in Europe, a brand-new interview with Joe Dallesandro on his numerous European film appearances during the 1970s and early 1980s
- Reversible sleeve with original and newly commissioned artwork by Chris Malbon
FIRST PRESSING ONLY: Booklet featuring new writing on the film by Roberto Curti, author of Italian Crime Filmography, 1968-1980

Pre-order at the MVD SHOP or on Amazon

Michael's Musings

Rebel Yell
Michael Shinafelt
In the Reality TV era of which I am a complicit participant, there are many things to consider. One of them should not be the dumbing down of people's minds. Translation: we should get what it's all about and not make it our reality.

Alas that is not true, witness the current state of affairs and who got elected POTUS and why.

Personally I can differentiate the "reality" of media from the realness of life, too bad most people can't. Shall we proceed? 

What a kick Melania Trump had to nudge The Orange Butt Plug of the US to put his hand on his heart during the Pledge Of Allegiance. If she doesn't have her Green Card already, hand her one for this.

Remember there are always going to be Weebles on the rag

Pinata Back Pack!

I fucking love Snapped on the Oxygen Network!

The press has announed that Fleetwood Mac tickets are going to be $800 on their upcoming tour. I love them, but not that much. (luckily I have seen them when ticket prices weren't a mortgage) 

Cheap airfare tip - United Airlines
Andy Cohen, Eileen Davidson & Bunny
Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion part deux - aka bitch better have my bunny!

Pretty Little Liars returned with a vengeance. If you don't like it, well bite me, I do.

Hugs & Kisses to my friend Jackie Kilmer

Roach free water, delightful 

Dildos, instead of rubber bands will be used in spin class today. Not really. One can dream, can't one???

When you wish upon a star, it's worth a try...

Always remember when you annoy someone in an anonymous sort of way, Satan will take care of that.

I'm Hellbent for leather, does that frighten you?

I'm as real as it gets at:

The Final Countdown

Giving Shhhh Finger Realness
The Pretty Little Liars
l-r Lucy Hale, Sasha Pieterse, Troian Bellasario, Ashley Benson & Shay Mitchell

"Got a secret, Can you keep it? Swear this one you’ll save, Better lock it, in your pocket, Taking this one to the grave...." 

Can you believe tonight is the first of the last ten times we will ever hear the theme song to Pretty Little Liars again? Well OK, there are re-runs etc...it will be the last ten times we ever hear it with new episodes. 

I remember when I first saw PLL I believe it was already in it's second season and I had been hearing so much about it that one night I turned it on out of curiosity, from that moment on I was hooked. Escapist entertainment at it's finest!

Fond memories of driving my then boyfriend crazy by insisting we catch up on the show when he was over are the best. There was also the time when I was going through a rough period and the show lifted my spirits then there was another time...well you get the picture. 

One Happy "PLL" Fan
Me & Sasha Pieterse
While the show ending will be like losing an old friend who has always been there for you, the time for it to wrap itself up has definitely come. 

So with fond memories and anticipation of seeing what will happen to my favorite "Liars" I am excited for the final countdown to the end of the show. 

If any of you need me you know where to find me tonight at 8!

Hellbent For Leather - Lady Gaga

Obey Everything I Say
Lady Gaga
While most of us celebrated Easter by having brunch with friends or feasting with family, a handful of others trekked to the California desert to attend the Coachella music festival which was headlined by the one and only Lady Gaga.

Our Lady of Gaga debuted her new single "The Cure" there much to the delight of her fans. Trust me I know first hand they were delighted because, you know, the postings on Facebook about the ditty were nothing short or orgasmic. 

Looking like a dominatrix might have helped put the song over with the audience too. Hey it's Gaga she can do whatever she wants and does.

Personally leather is my look and I can understand the Lady being hellbent for it. Leather it does a body good, especially if you are _____ the blank is yours to fill in, I'm just the tease.

It's Monday time to get on with it and get over it, it's time to bend it like Lady Gaga

Ciao!

Happy Easter!

My Kind Of Easter Basket
The Easter Bunny & Andy Cohen
When I was a kid growing up I always loved getting baskets of goodies from the Easter Bunny. As I grew older and my taste evolved I wished he would bring me a different kind of Easter Basket instead...

Something along the lines of this Bunny bringing everyone Andy Cohen with his basket full of goodies. Calories you can burn instead of packing on, that's my idea of one devilishly delicious Easter Brunch.

Andy the host of Bravo's Watch What Happens Live seems very at ease offering up his Easter Eggs. Let's indulge him and partake, shan't we? Yummy! 

Happy Easter Everyone!

Saturday Sinema: A Street Cat Named Bob


Trivia - Joanne Froggatt takes the same Spin Class I do at Gold's Gym Hollywood, the more you know...

Cleopatra Entertainment LLC, the movie division of famed indie record label Cleopatra Records, has acquired all domestic rights to the feel-good true story A Street Cat Named Bob, directed by Roger Spottiswoode (Turner and HoochTomorrow Never Dies) and starring Luke Treadaway (Unbroken), Ruta Gedmintas (The Strain) and Joanne Froggatt (Downtown Abbey). The film, written by Tim John and Maria Nation, is based on the international bestseller by James Bowen and Garry Jenkins. Produced by Adam Rolston for Shooting Script Films, the uplifting story will be released domestically in theaters on November 18th, 2016.


SYNOPSIS:
When James Bowen found an injured, ginger street cat curled up in the hallway of his sheltered accommodation, he had no idea just how much his life was about to change. James was living hand to mouth on the streets of London and the last thing he needed was a pet. Yet James couldn't resist helping the strikingly intelligent tom cat, whom he quickly christened Bob. He slowly nursed Bob back to health and then sent the cat on his way, imagining he would never see him again. But Bob had other ideas. Soon the two were inseparable and their diverse, comic and occasionally dangerous adventures would transform both their lives, slowly healing the scars of each other's troubled pasts.

The book "A Street Cat Named Bob" was first published in the U.K. in March 2012 and spent a record 70 consecutive weeks on the Sunday Times Bestseller list, the majority of which residing at the number one spot. The book has now been published in more than 30 territories, including the U.S., China, and Japan, selling more than five million copies worldwide.

Damian Jones (Absolutely FabulousThe Lady In The Van) serves as executive producer on the film. Prescience fully financed the production and Tim Smith, Paul Brett, Anders Erden and James Swarbrick also serve as executive producers. The Exchange handled sales.

Sony Pictures Releasing International and Stage 6 Films will release the film on November 4th in the UK and in multiple territories this fall.

"This is a universal story that audiences around the world have already embraced," said Cleopatra founder Brian Perera. "We are excited to play a part in bringing this project to both old and new fans of this inspiring story."

"Powerful and inspirational, with a strong music base, A Street Cat Named Bob makes this true life story a perfect fit for Cleopatra Distribution," said Brian O'Shea, The Exchange CEO.

Available for order at the MVD SHOP and on Amazon

Michael's Musings

Spin Bike Porn
Michael Shinafelt
Are you scratching your collective heads about the above image and caption? Well let me strap one on and extrapolate.

Those of you who take a spin class on a regular basis get what I mean, for the uninitiated here we go. Everyone no matter who they are have their favorite bike when they enter the spin room, in my case this takes place at Gold's Gym Hollywood (they should pay my ass for all my internet mentions of them.)

I have two favorite instructors there, Jessica & Michelle, and guess what? I like the same bike all the time. Now don't get me wrong, if someone arrives before me and snags it, I can move on and not get bent. But that never happens, because I get there early enough to insure my place in the universe.

So the image above is me showing affection for my favorite spin bike in the room with a tongue bath. Let's move on, I know you want to....

United Airlines, moving on...

Oral tops & waffle makers

Hey Guys & Dolls, this Easter I wish you the biggest basket

Hagsploitation - I never thought a limited series on FX named Feud would introduce me to my new favorite term.

There's no gray in Sonja Morgan's gardens. Dye it's not just for Easter eggs

A woman named Ida Lickhammer gave a like to one of my Instagram posts this week. Yes, really.

That time in spin class (you know, on my favorite bike) you mistake a Michael Jackson song for a Britney Spears one. Yeah, that really happened.

Here comes Peter Cottontail, I hope he cleans up after himself

To all the RHOBH fans out there. Look what I saw this past week DTLA

Just Because...Pamela Anderson

So Hollywood
Pamela Anderson
Look it's Pamela Anderson out and about in Venice, Italy. I mean how could you not look? Pam is dressed like a classic Hollywood movie starlet and is eye catching, you can't miss her and not stare for a bit, or more?

Cat eye sunglasses and a hot skin tight pink dress are always a win when worn by a woman with curves in all the right places like Ms. Anderson.

Let me give you a little commentary on Pammy, I had the pleasure of interviewing back in the day when her book Star came out. The piece was for Instinct magazine when it was still an interesting publication. It was for The Chick We'd Switch For column.

Being that it was a magazine for gay men I had to pose the inevitable question: If you were gay for a day would you be a man or a woman? She of course said "man" 

My follow up question? What would you do as a gay man? She stated: I would know how to give a better blow job.

There you have it, mic drop. Pam was a lot of fun and sweet as can be. This image and anecdote are just the thing to make all of you smile and get you over "The Hump" - have a good one!
