Rock out with your Lip-sync!

Lip-syncing got a bad name in the late 1980’s the but luckily in the mid 2010’s the American television series Lip Sync Battle and the incomparable RuPaul with his TV series empire of RuPaul’s Drag Race reclaimed this “art form” and I’m glad as I enjoy a good lip sync any day. Now add a hot action movie star (who is not a singer) caught on film singing along in sunglasses to old time rock and roll music and a splash 80 movie trivia and you could easily become addicted to love.

Keep calm & Dance on

Don’t you just wish sometimes in real life you and the world around you can suddenly go in a dance sequence like in the movies? Where everyone sings your song, perfect weather, no traffic, and everyone is in perfect choreography. Well, I certainly do. This week I listed my favourite dance scenes from the movies from not just musicals or dance movies but any unforgettable dance sequences that I believe will be listed in the cinema archives as classics.

Somewhere over the Rainbow Flag

With all the celebrations going on currently for Pride month I thought is important to also reflect on past events in gay culture and moments that makes one feel proud and empowered to be different. At the openings of the gay games of 2006, Suzanne Westenhoefer an American comedian give these inspiring words “We don’t need acceptance we are not credit cards; we already are everyplace you want to be. I didn’t choose to be gay; I was chosen.”

Packed with 3 quizzes ranged from Film & TV series scary theme music to famous “last words” from horror movies. Listen if you dare, 1000 forms of fear and thou you fight to stay alive your body starts to shiver, for mortal can resist the evil of Screaming Jay Hawkins
