If I Knew You Were Coming I'da Baked Betty Crocker

Yes, this is a commercial for why the next time you want to buy a cake mix you should defer to a General Mill's Betty Crocker product.  The brand is a big supporter of all kinds of families, including the GLBT variety!  They went to many Pride festivals in 2013 to celebrate all families with, what else, cupcakes for all!  They found that while our differences make us unique, one thing makes all families the same: love.  Check out their promotional video.

Oprah - Whole Night Devoted to LGBT in America

On October 27, 2013, Oprah's network is devoting an entire evening to the subject of being gay LGBT in America.  It includes Oprah's interview with comedienne Wanda Sykes, Modern Family star Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Scandal star Dan Bucatinsky on being gay in Hollywood. That is followed by the documentary Bridegroom (10 p.m. - 12 a.m. Eastern and Pacific) from filmmaker and Designing Women creator Linda Bloodworth Thomason.

The documentary, with tons of Oscar potential, is the tragic story of one man's heartbreak following the accidental death of his partner and that partner's parents refusal to recognize his role as family.  Here's the preview of Bridegroom:

NUDE MALE PUZZLE - What Are You Looking At?

("LICK" to enlarge)

These puzzles will normally take you less than 5 minutes to complete.  This one took me 3:52.   Puzzles labeled difficult in the headline will probably take a bit longer.  To start the puzzle, scroll down and move your cursor over the "Loading the puzzle..." box.  The puzzle will then fill itself in.

NOTE: Although I test every puzzle, sometimes pieces do freeze or simply just don't appear.  It has been suggested that if you are having difficulty finding missing pieces try to zoom in or out in your browser (pressing "ctrl" and "+" or "-" does this in most browsers).  Most of the time the missing pieces are hiding at the bottom of the puzzle area - and will become visible after you've zoomed.  Sorry, these are server issues and beyond my control.

Here's a stopwatch if you'd like to time yourself.

Do It One More Time -- I, Frankenstein

Ok, I sighed an "oh, no, not again" sigh when I heard of this remake.  Then I had a look at the above photo of Aaron Eckhart's version of Dr. Frankenstein's The Creature.  I thought... maybe it's worth looking at the trailer.  It was.  So coming to a theatre near you in November... I, Frankenstein...

Travis Wall - choreographer extraordinaire

(click to enlarge)
Why is Travis Wall a choreographer extraordinaire? Well, he's been nominated for Emmys and is gaining a reputation as the go-to choreographer for contemporary and jazz dance routines, that's why.  Besides he's so cute!   When hired by Las Vegas hotel Caesar's Palace to create a video celebrating the 1st anniversary of their Bacchanal Buffet Travis again proved his talent. (CAUTION: if you are dieting... don't watch this video.  It could distroy your will power.)
