What is the meaning of this chain gang humping video with hot Russian boys spreading across Youtube like wildfire? Is it a joke, a satire or what? It’s definitely queerious. What do you think?
Wall art can be eclectic, inspiring and bizarre, but there is one common item that I have seen hanging somewhere on everyone’s walls and that’s photographs of themselves, family or friends. However in today’s age of the iPad, flat screen televisions and digital picture frames, I am surprised that there are not any looping videos, a living photo frame, on our walls similar to those found in the world of Harry Potter.
Not everything has to be recorded, but there is an ephemeral quality to see the moment before and after a very special photograph. Still pictures can create a false sense of reality, and be downright boring, if one chooses to only show people smiling. We tend to take notice when we see imperfections. I love candid stills, especially because people are caught in real situations.
These looping videos should not be long, perhaps only 40 seconds maximum, and there should not be any audio. Continue reading

I’m a monarchist and secretly, I subscribe to the daily rigmarole of the British Monarchy. Earlier this year, HRH The Prince of Wales released a YouTube video about the British Asian Trust. Below would’ve been my letter to his royal highness about it.
Dear Prince Charles, Continue reading
Thank God for Youtube. I don’t know where we would be without it. There are an insane amount of gay Youtube stars out there. What the Buck?, Chris Crocker and Shane Dawson just to name a few. Okay, Shane Dawson isn’t gay, but he’s gay enough. When you see him you just gotta think, “Girl, your hair is flawless…” But there’s just so many to watch.
In my opinion, the gay voice (not the gay voice that you hear when I speak) is pretty prominent in the Youtube viral video community. Who could forget Chris Crocker’s “Leave Britney Alone!” video?
Chris Crocker has sashayed a long way from his first video “Leave Britney Alone” that made him world famous. “Leave Britney Alone” has a total of over 36.5 million views on Youtube as of this date. “Britney” was originally posted in Sep 2007: Continue reading
I cannot help not posting our comedic Philip Huang’s “Gay Teens: It Gets Worse” video. I get a good laugh every time I watch it.
For those of you who have been living under a rock, the It Gets Better project started in late September 2010 when columnist Dan Savage and his partner Terry posted a video on YouTube hoping to inspire GLBT youth facing bullying, in response to a slew of gay teenage suicide, that life does get better. The next thing you know, the video project has gone viral! We see various vigils, fundraisers, concerts, walks, etc. in support of the project. Personally, I started a weekly viewing of the It Gets Better postings every Saturday morning for some good cry and inspiration. Here are a couple of my favorites. Continue reading
