David Comes Out

David has just become an evictee of the Big Brother house… tipped to be one of the final two the odds have swung the other way, and maybe that’s for the best.

According to CentreBet he was never going to win and as the second place getter you kind of come off second best to ALL of the previous evictees. You don’t get enough screen time, so you’re time and issues aren’t dealt with the same as others.

And talking of spending time on issues… Channel 10 spent at least a good half hour discussing David’s homosexuality, along with a cameo by his beau Sherif. I think they dealt with it quite well and in a way that would not have been possible had he come second.

When asked what was the best thing about going into the house, David answered “Coming out” which had Gretel laughing uncontrollably as it was obvious that David meant, out of the house, but he had in fact also come out to the world as a gay man on the show during the second week.

It was a nice end to his time in the house… now I hope Camilla wins… I really don’t want Jamie, the guy who can’t walk past a mirror without looking at himself, to win.

Scissor Sisters

Scissor SistersThe Scissor Sisters are coming with their new album… and the first single is “Don’t Feel Like Dancing” and ironically when I listen to it, Dancing is all I can think about!

I’ve read at least one review who has referred to this song as a “safe” choice for their first single. To this I say, why do people always expect a band to do something different on a new album? They made their success, brought their fans on-board with their first album and the music in contains, why should they stray from that course and come out with something different.

I LOVE this song and as I said love the fact that it makes one feel like gettin’ down to boogie.

Flickr Find 0003

Found on FlickrPerfect roses are a favourite thing… but they don’t have to have raindrops on them for me to like them.

This photo by Rivello on Flickr is an absolutely beautiful example of perfection. He should be very proud of his capture. It is definately one a great find on Flickr.

Popping Out all Over

And yet few are surprised.

Guess what! Darren Hayes is gay…  I know, I know I was shocked too… not.

Guess what! Lance Bass (from N*Sync) yep you guessed it gay…

They join George Michael, Elton John, Stephen Gately and Mark Feehily as guys everyone knew  as gay, so no surprises all round… sure there are others.
Come out, come out where ever you are. Now I’m not saying that coming out should be at the top of the agenda for celebs. In fact I’d love for it to be a non-event, it should be a non-event, what the tabloids should be reporting (as trash mags often do) is who they are dating this week.

Some of them say they don’t want to be role models, but they are, whether they want to be or not. They take the fame, they take the money, they must then accept the role.
I don’t want to see press releases, I just want to hear you thanking your partners in your acceptance speeches, I want to see them on your arm at events and I want to see you happy and not hiding part of who you are.

The idea that “that’s their personal lives” is insane… no one ever is that separated from work and home, think about it, you talk about what happens in your life with the people at work. For these guys the whole world is their workplace.

Yes I know I’m rabling and I apologise, I just don’t like the idea that someone somewhere is wasting this life (especially in their youth), you only get the one and it’s yours to do with as you please. I just want the world to be happy, and for that I feel everyone in it needs to be happy and honest within themselves.

Blessed be.

Working at 10pm

Anyway… I’m about to walking into my basketball game when my phone rings, it’s my boss, she wants me to take down part of a site because of legal troubles and some expose in the Age newspaper.

Sure, right after I finish playing bball and blog about this!

Madonna’s Note to Australian Fans

Madonna’s Note to Australian Fans Madonna’s Note to Australian Fans Madonna’s Note to Australian Fans Madonna’s Note to Australian Fans Madonna’s Note to Australian FanpoPosted: 13 July 2006

To my fans in Australia

Please forgive me. I really did hope and expect to come to Australia during the Confessions Tour and asked my managers to try to include some shows there. I have fond memories from previous tours. Unfortunately, the logistics just didn’t work out this time around. We looked into going from Japan to Australia and ending the show there but I have to get my kids back into school in England and they are, as you can understand, my most important priority. The important thing to remember is that I’m not retiring anytime soon and I am gonna get to Australia as soon as I can. You remain in my heart and Thank you for your continued love & support.

Love,
Madonna (from www.madonna.com)

Lady, like, WHATEVER, get the kids a tutor for the road… if it wasn’t for your fans you wouldn’t even have those two kids (all right we weren’t directly involved in creating them). Without us, they would be two (or six) very different kids, without the luxury of going to school in England, they’d be schlepping it to some inner-city American school that’s fighting to stay open cause it can’t afford books or reading programs.

I’m sure there’ll be a DVD. Oh and on that Madge if you get a chance, buy back the rights to “The Blonde Ambition Tour” what’s the deal with MTV owning it. It is probably your best concert ever and my Betamax taped version just doesn’t cut it anymore.

Brokeback Point Cook

Brokeback MountainWho knew… our local video store has around 30 copies of Brokeback Mountain in stock… not one was available… not one.

Who’s hiring all these copies, is it just wives drawn by the idea of having a movie with both Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal strutting around. Even the idea of seeing them both semi-naked.

Is it that the wives are fine with the idea of two guys getting it on in a movie role? Which would be a nice turn of events, afterall we “the gays” have had to watch guys and girls simulating the action on the big screen for a long time now.

Mysterious SkinOn another note, just finished watching Mysterious Skin confronting and disturbing at times it was a good film all-round. There’s not a lot more to say about it other than watch it… and watch it all even if it gives you that funny irky feeling… see it through.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Brady Corbet did an amazing job. The last scene when they talk about the past is one of the most touching moments I have ever seen in a movie.
