Philly rock band Wonder and Fury wanted a few queens for their latest music video, “Talk Talk Talk,’ so they called up Tabu to see if they could bring their cameras to one of the bar’s signature Sunday Drag Brunches in November. Of course, the queens were more than happy to oblige.
The video spans a whole afternoon of drag-brunching—from going backstage where the ladies are caking their faces with makeup to showing performance clips on Tabu’s tiny upstairs stage. Some of the gals who make an appearance are Brittany Lynn and her drag daughter Robyn, Crystal Electra and Maria TopCat.
“Talk Talk Talk” is from Wonder & Fury’s eponymous first EP, which you can listen to and buy here. See the video below:
Gay Bachelor Blog asked a series of good-looking men to describe their first sexual experience with another man. Here is what followed:
I found the video on The Gaily Grind, which threw up an accompanying poll asking readers to share how old they were when they had their first sexual experience. Surprisingly, as of press time, the most popular answer by far is “Between 8 and 12,” with a more reasonable 17 following about 10 points behind. Check that out—and weigh in—here.
I have a confession: I’ve never used Grindr. My husband and I started dating almost 11 years ago, way before the gay-dating was a twinkle in the gay community’s eye. So I’ve just never had any use for it. I do, however, get a kick out of some of your Instagram and Facebook posts, you know, the screen captures that show funny, bizarre, and downright blush-worthy messages that show up on your screen from other users.
This new video, by TrentandLuke on YouTube, goes a step further, asking gay couples to reenact crazy Grindr conversations. It’s pretty funny, and the couples are so cute. Check it out below. Oh, and I wouldn’t blare this too loud if you’re at work, btw.
The last few leaves are hanging on Philly’s trees by a thread, and if you’ve stepped outside today, you know that the bitter cold of winter is damn well on its way. Let’s take a moment to bask in the gloriousness of autumn via a new video just released by local filmmaker Cory J. Popp, called simply “Fall In Philly.”
Philly indie rock star Kurt Vile joined Warpaint on stage this weekend during the Red Bull Sound Select’s 30 Days in L.A. music festival. The group brought him out to perform the dreamy “Baby from their 2010 album The Fool. Vile will perform his own show at the 30 Days in L.A. on November 21st.
Philadelphia Police have released video of multiple attempted robberies that took place just 10 minutes apart in Far Northeast Philadelphia late last month. The man attempted to rob two stores, and stole a tip jar from one.
According to the police account, a man entered the Freshworks at Knights and Woodhaven roads and threatened an employee with a knife. After being refused money, he stole the tip jar.
Last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Kimmel aired his annual prank/challenge that asks parents to tell their kids they ate all their Halloween candy and then film it for the world to see. As always, it’s a hilarious watch, and the reactions run the gamut from pitiful (“That’s okay, we can get more”) to devastating (“Waaaaaahhhhhhh!”) to a little embarrassing (i.e. the girl at 1:05 who throws everything she can get her hands on in the kitchen.)
Today show gal pals Natalie Morales and former first daughter Jenna Bush Hager recently took a trip to Eastern State Penitentiary’s “Terror Behind the Walls,” the annual haunted attraction that’s been scaring people shitless for decades.
The whole thing was caught on video and shown on the Today show this morning. The segment starts with a history of Eastern State, which is interesting in its own right, but the real fun starts around the 3-minute mark, when the ladies start meeting the ghouls in “Terror Behind the Walls.” Screams abound! Check out the video above.
He starts at Walnut and Locust on the Broad Street Line and manages to vogue all over town—in the train cars, in subway corridors, on steps—everywhere. He tells me they shot at noon one day, but somehow he managed to film it without having any passengers in the way. “Just know it was a lot of planning, patience, and prayer.”
In a statement to Huffington Post, he says he did the video to show that “anywhere can be a performance area. … I am a member of Philadelphia’s Black Gay Ballroom Scene and I wanted to showcase all of its creativity and talent. Also, since voguing and the Ballroom Scene is an ‘underground scene,’ why not put it underground, literally!”
