Didya? Wouldya?

Hey guys, sorry I didn’t blog yesterday. I do [[kind of]] have a life outside of Celebrities and Fashion…

 

But just because you don’t see your daily dose of homosexual here, doesn’t mean you can’t get it!

If you head over to Through My Blackberry you will be sure to find a heaping helping of homo.

You can see pictures of Me, the grandest gay in Cincinnati making faces in mirrors. Sometimes the faces are explained, most times not.

You get to see my coworkers, and myself (not) working.
You can’t buy culinary prowess such as this. They fashioned the food into a SMILEY.

And you get to see pictures my friends in California send me from The Castro in SanFran. Relax. Its a cookie. Wow guys, don’t be such prudes…

 

I know some of you already have. But wouldya? Didya follow me on Tumblr yet? Its fun I SWEAR.

What’s better than laughing at some one else’s topsy turvey life?

Nothing, that’s what.

 

So follow me.

 

Bitch.

(You guys aren’t really bitches, that was to be punchy..)


I want SUMMER.

I was having heavy summer cravings all day today. So how do I resolve these issues? I blog about the summer past.

 


Starting things off right, classy. Ya know?


There, that’s better. This was taken at one of Heidi and I’s favorite restaurants in Cincinnati, Melt.


Impromptu photo shoot in my back yard. Cincinnati, what else do we do with our time?


The same impromptu photo shoot, but the tables have turned. Heidi is as good in front of the camera as she is behind it.

That sounds a little dirty doesn’t it?


One thing I will miss about suburbia, driving around with music blaring with a photographer riding shotgun.


This photo, and the rest are from a trip to Chicago I took for a week with my best Gay/Gal pals Stephen/Heidi.
I thought this pic was a pretty grandiose transition.


This was a pretty sweet backdrop right? It was so fucking hot that day though..


Stephen and I strolling down the street. Those pesky paparazzi didn’t even phase us.


Didya ever see any two people so happy on a subway train that didn’t just have sex?


To round this off, a picture to make your heart BURST from cuteness. We were walking past the pound and a lady was taking kittens in!

As always, these pics were all taken by Heidi Palmer, or at least with her camera.

A project.

I decided I wanted to do something more than just attend the Gay Pride Parade this year in Cincinnati. I want to do something to make more of a difference.

It’s no secret that besides San Diego, Cincinnati is the highest donating city to the GOP and is notoriously conservative. Judging by this reputation you would think living in Cincinnati as a gay man would be hell on earth. With the help of Heidi Palmer, I am going to make a Documentary (kind of) showing you that it isn’t all that bad. Normal people believe in equality, and they have a voice.

For updates on this project as they happen, follow me on twitter. Then tumbl with my tumblr, Through My Blackbery.

Tumbl with me.

I decided I give celebrities so much attention on this blog, I should make another dedicated to the Life & Times of Yours Truly!

 

I started a Tumblr.

So, come see life Through My Blackberry.

Court Chronicles: LiLo

The Grand Theft case against Lindsay Lohan is beginning to fall apart at the seams.

The necklace that Lohan allegedly swiped, when appraised at fairmarket value is only worth 800-1000 dollars, as opposed to the $2,500 Kamofie & Company was asking for it.

If the necklace is officially appraised at less than $950, California Law dictates that the charge must be reduced to petty theft.

“Caught ya, suckas.”

The sentence for which would be 6 months in jail, significantly different than a year in prison. Lindsay’s lawyer said the prosecutor was trying for a higher value of the necklace to make a point against Lindsay.

 

Woohoo!

 


NYFW Cowgirl. Street Stylin’.

Last night, in honor of The Man Repeller, I decided to do a street style segment with my friend @laurieloulou22 as the subject.

I don’t have womens designer duds lying around, but I did scrounge up a faux fur jacket, a eternity scarf, and my jean jacket from eighth grade. Also, cowboy boots are mandatory for this look.

Ready? Set. GLITTER!

This lovely little creation is courtesy of Forever 21. Cute and Comfy.

Step One: Top Knot.

 

Step Dos: Embrace your inner lesbian and find a Jean Jacket.
(This one was mine, circa 2003.)

 

 

Step Three: Cowboy boots.
Now you don’t get to say you just bought them for that country concert.
I guess we’re still embracing your inner lesbian, its okay. Look how successful Ellen and Portia are! Covergirls!

 

Step four: Toss on a Colored Scarf.
I guess lesbatrons wear scarves too, but we’re getting more feminine.

Make sure you stay on top of your top knot, this one is sagging like Joan River’s ass.

 

Step Five: Smoke out your eyes and pop your lips. Leave the lesbian behind, its time to take a cue from Taylor Momsen.
Disdain for life 100% necessary.


Step Six: Bring it all together with something every girl should have. (Faux) Fur.
If you feel like Kelly Bensimone, you’re doing it right.

 

 

Finally, add a heap pinch of Naomi Campbell, and you’re front row at Proenza Schouler ready.

Werque.

Looky Looky friends, fashion week ready attire that didn’t require leaving the house or spending money to assemble.

“Let’s take a Twilight Picture.”

We’d be some bad ass vampires.

C. (for CARPET GIRL) Siriano

You’ll see, the title def makes sense.

There was a funeral procession at Lincoln Center last night. Not, it was actually Christian Siriano’s show. there was just NO color in Siriano’s new line for Fall/Winter 2011. But good things come to those who wait, 24 looks in, he had the most gorgeous, rich green and rose in his clothes.

Christian opened his show with an all black look, shirt under jacket. Not too exciting up north, but take a gander downstairs and you’ll notice that the shoes are flawless. It’s not surprising that the footwear in his collections are neat because after all, the shoe collection/ collaboration with Payless is a HUGE moneymaker for Christian and he’s fairly good at it. And although one model fell and another almost ate it twice, the shoes still rock. It’s the price you pay for fashion.

She fell on purpose, just trying to show off the shoes.

 

As the looks come down the runway, we see more leather and more S&M boots.

It seems that the focus of this collection is really texture. The most prominent is the carpet texture, which he presented in a few looks on the sleeves and in the finale dress. Not a fan of the texture on the dress (see below), but the thick of the sleeves and the thin of the shirt make for a really interesting contrast. Additionally, a cool new texture: matte black scallops with shiny black leather. Shown on a skirt and a few dresses.

New texture, but still very him.

About halfway through the show, Christian introduced a new silhouette where the skirt ballooned away from the body, almost like it is repelling off of her. Its different, hopefully it’ll catch on.

Magic!

One last thing:  Someone should really inform Siriano that if he wants to share some Post-Show champagne with his models who have been starving themselves for a month, he should wait until AFTER the show. Then they wouldn’t have so much trouble making it down the damn runway.

Lets be real, what was he thinking showing his bathroom rug at New York Fashion week? Poor Carpet Girl ended up having to carry the dress. Otherwise, I liked the collection. Very grown up, but still very Christian Siriano.

Babes & Bitches

Sorry my posts have been lacking today fagafaithfuls.

 

But I’m about to make up for it.

I was thinking, why do male celebs get to have all the fun? The ladies have cute doggies too! So, from now on, dudes and dogs is not only confined to men.

 

Case in point:

 

Izzy and I, take 2.

Izzy was freezing cold.

Having talented friends rocks my socks.

Super Bowl Attire.

This is my attempt at wearing Green Bay Packers colors for the Super Bowl.

I’m from Cincinnati, hating the Steelers (and their gross uniforms) is in my blood.

 

Its a very loosely interpreted attempt.

Boots: Steve Madden
Sweater: Polo (Its supposed to be Packers yellow. But its camel.)
Shirt: Paper Denim & Cloth (Its Green Bay green, but plaid.)
Jeans: GAP 1969

Looks better than their actual uniforms.. they should consider a change.

 

Go Packers!
