Back by popular demand, it's going to be Homofication all week long folks. Reminder: homofication is projecting homosexuality on heterosexuals. Something we all love to do.
I've been waiting for this photo for a long time. Fitting that it came along in Movember:
Look at that moustache! Clearly, Katie Holmes is a homosexual man!
Now take a closer look...see how Tom Kat are even dressing alike? DELISH!
My print column hits the streets today. For those of you not in Van, here's a snapshot of this year's scene:
Cocked & Loaded
Well, I’m glad Halloween has come and gone because if I see
one more person dressed up as a vampire or gladiator, I am going to have to
gouge out both my eyeballs with a sharp pencil and wear symbolic red eye patches
to teach the world a lesson about uncreative costumes.
Lest ye forget: Halloween is the costume lover’s holiday and
for those of us who love dressing up, this is the one time of year where you
REALLY have to pull out all the stops.
I mean, come on…a vampire? A gladiator? Get REAL! Come visit
me at the Xtra offices and I’ll help you out with your costume for next year by
writing YOU’RE BORING on your forehead in permanent black pen.
Now that I’ve got
that out of the way, let’s talk about this year’s Hall of Fame.
It turns out that local pop star Peter Breeze could teach a
crash course of Halloween 101 for the costume-impaired. He showed up at
Junction’s Little Shop of Horrors party dressed as a giant bag of cocaine—
complete with oversized novelty straw—and proceeded to let party goers take
turns snorting him.
That, my friends, is a type of genius that few can claim to
own and is evidence of two things in my mind:
That Peter Breeze is an addictive pairing of vision
and whimsy (I just said whimsy…yeah I did) and we are lucky to have him in
- That the big DJ parties at Junction (formerly
Pulse, formerly Majestic) are the best of their kind in Vancouver and despite
having to see a bat-shit crazy ex every time I go to one, I always have a great
Check out Peter’s costume on his Facebook page. You won’t
Now. Xtra West assigned me to a club crawl on Halloween and
I would like to personally thank everyone who dressed up as Jesus. You made my
night, particularly Buff Jesus and Hipster Jesus at 1181 Tight Lounge. You were
sacrilicious and you know it!
Celebrities definitely had the hottest male angel on the
strip. I also have never been groped like I was groped at Pumpjack. Apparently
wearing yellow spandex and a giant Pac Man head is as an open invitation to
inappropriate butt touching. Who knew.
If I have one final piece of Halloween advice, it’s that the
Davie strip is a guaranteed good time, so remember that next year. And when in
you’re in doubt over a costume choice and someone asks you what you’re dressing
up as for Halloween, “slutty” is always a good answer.
For those of you who haven’t heard, it’s Movember this
month. A number of guys I know are growing moustaches to raise money for
prostate cancer research, including DJ Dreaddy. I’m going to be growing one and
if you are interested in making a donation to support either DJ Dreaddy or I in
our moustache growing efforts, please contact me at email@example.com.
