24-Carat Diamond

There’s something heartening about a gangly, 6'4" youth decked out in rainbow eyeliner and lipstick along with his sneakers and jeans. That’d be one John O’Regan, the Toronto whiz kid known as Diamond Rings. When he opens that pretty, lip-glossed mouth on his debut Special Affections (out Monday October 25), his voice is anything but androgynous. It’s big, it’s sonorous, it’s — well — manly.

To get a sense of O’Regan in all his glory, check out the video for his latest single "Something Else" or the Halloween-time clip for the blues-gospel electro strut of "Wait & See." He’s living it up: loving the music intensely in "Something Else"; dancing through the neighborhood during "Wait & See" like a bird proud of its exotic plumage. But you don’t need the visuals to get at the complicated heart of these shiny love songs. He struggles with identity amidst the synthetic tension of "You Oughta Know." He wants to hold on to his good love on the blissful "You & Me." And on the generous closer "All Yr Songs" he lathers his lover with lotion to keep from burning in summer and offers up his winter sweater to stave off the cold. Beneath the pageantry, that’s the kind of diamond that sparkles brightest.

The Rocky Horror GLEE Show

Glee is paying homage to the cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show in their 5th episode of season 2, directed by Adam Shankman. I’ve always been a fan of the RHPS and to have that meshed in with glee is pure bliss.

There have been a few artist themed episodes, which I enjoyed, but I’m really glad that they are paying tribute to a classic and just in time for Halloween. The kids of McKinley High put on a high school production of Rocky Horror. Principal Figgins is allowing this? I don’t think I’ve ever heard of a high school accomplishing the RHPS on school grounds because of the “R” rating. Only on glee….

WMHS Casting - Rocky Horror:

Rachel = Janet Weiss

Finn = Brad Majors

Mercedes = Dr. Frank-N-Furter

Kurt = Riff Raff

Brittany = Columbia

Santana = Magenta

Sam = Rocky

Artie = Dr. Scott

Dr. Carl = Eddie

Quinn, Tina, Mike, Brittany, & Artie = Partygoers / aka Transylvanians

Alternative Roles: MAGENTA - Quinn; COLUMBIA - Tina; EDDIE - Mike (?).

Unfortunately we’re going to miss out on a new glee episode this Tuesday, due to the MLB playoffs. It’s worth the wait but the anticipation is killing me! Dammit Janet is one of my favorite songs and I heard a preview of it and I think I'm going to need shock treatment just to calm me down. I hope you’re not as anxious as I am. Here is a little preview of what’s in store for us gleeks on the 26th:

TGI with us & spread the word!!!!


Bingo in Weho 10/10/10

Tonight is the night to TGI at Hamburger Mary's in West Hollywood. For the first time ever, Legendary Bingo is presenting a back-to-back BINGO EVENT and it starts at 7PM.

"Our 7 pm show will benefit "Holden's Hope Train" with special guest MONICA POTTER! Monica is currently one of the stars of the hit t.v. show Parenthood and is also quite famous for Boston Legal, Saw, Head Over Heels and for kicking major bad guy ass in The Last House On The Left. Rumor has it that Monica is bringing members of the "Parenthood" cast and also that cast members of "Castle" are also coming!

And then.....
At 9 pm on Sunday we will pull out our balls again and get our bingo on to benefit the APLA AIDS Marathon with special guest SHARON OSBOURNE! I hope I don't have to list her credits but you can see her above as one of the judges of America's Got Talent. It's Sharon's birthday and we will have a delicious cake from Sweet Lady Jane to commemorate the occasion.

Thank you for supporting our charities and also our drag queens in need of applause and dollar tips.

NOTE: Calpernia Addams and "Unreal" will be back next Sunday night @ 9 pm!"

The Celebration of John Lennon

Happy Birthday to the great John Lennon. Today would've been his 70th Birthday. People all over the world are celebrating his birthday. New York has several events planned. I know they have the remembrance vigil at John's Hollywood Star in Los Angeles but I'm uncertain if they do it for his birthday. Check around town for events. If you're in L.A., you might want to drop by the Grammy Museum for a Lennon treat!

Celebrate it in your own way; whether it's getting together with friends - drinking a beer in his memory, listening to an album, watching a documentary or film, sharing your love of Lennon with a friend or family member, or playing Beatles rockband.

Yoko Ono said, "John's LIFE was a gift to US."

John Lennon's Legacy will forever SHINE ON!

Congratulations to Jane and all of her recent praises. She's in the Lavender/Limelight and we look forward to watching her host Saturday Night Live tomorrow.

Jane is hilarious and to have her + live sketch comedy is a comedy phenomenon.
