A new Web series all about the real Australian guys on Grindr looks funny and provocative to me, with commentary on racism, body fascism, intimacy and humor. I don't see any old-timers, so maybe ageism will be next.
My post of Tyler Oakley's interview with 19-year-old YouTube sensations The Harries Twins led to some excited comments and crossposting at other blogs (and earned me a savage insult form a Towleroad commenter, who for some reason thinks my CLEARLY basketball-shaped head is actually shaped like that football-shapped noggin on "Stewie"—and thinks this matters), so how about s'more? Above, here they are doing things that would lead many men to envy the ice cream, here are tons more shots of them bein' cute and keep reading to see their naked bungee-jumping video...
Via Queerty: I'm torn about Lohanthony, a 13-year-old bitch who is anything but basic and whose YouTube videos have gone viral.
On the one hand, he redefines "precocious", is hilarious and is probably really smart. How else to explain his absorption and understanding of so many aspects of being a queen that are far beyond, or should be far beyond, his tender years?
"Fuck the haters!"
On the other hand, is this flaming version of McLovin going to grow up to be a huge asshole? The shade he's throwing is hysterical, but is he like this all the time?
And regardless, his "twerking" videos could very easily be deemed child pornography at any moment. He shakes his ass in a way no 13-year-old with should be doing, let alone on the Internet, while sexually explicit songs play. Actual cases where that kind of thing has been categorized as child porn do exist.
Taking all of it into consideration—I still think there is something genius about him, I hope he gets what he wants in life and I don't think for a second he's a kid we need to worry about ending up another suicide statistic. The confidence is shattering. I've met Britney Spears three times and I would gladly give him all three of those meetings if I could.
And for all you basic bitches itching to respond negatively to me for even so much as considering whether his videos are a net positive or net negative thing: YOU'RE BASIC.
Shia LaBeouf goes full-frontal in a new video by Sigur Ros called "Fjogur piano". Meanwhile, his bare dick is okay on YouTube but a video I uploaded last month of Andy Mills's bare ass was ruled "obscene" and removed—a decision that was held up on appeal.
Not getting married, but would hire them to edit the video if I did
UPDATE: Well, that was fun while it lasted. This is from another video (here). At least I was right that the video would work with other soundtracks. But it would appear the person who uploaded it was having a go at Madonna after all. Still love it. Wish it had been original to this usage.
Via Towleroad: I mean this sincerely—this video should be shown on a loop in a gallery. It's simultaneously a very funny YouTube find, critique of Madonna's lazy videos (probably only to crazy fans who care, the same video would work with many different soundtracks) and commentary on what Russell Brand says is the "pink, glitter-shitting pony" that is pop culture. I absolutely love it. And Mariel Hemingway is great in it! (P.S. The ironically uberawkward dancing around :26 (and elsewhere) was even funnier when it was first seen here!!!)
Via Towleroad: This teen with an active YouTube channel came out to his mom and filmed the whole thing. Brought a tear to my eye. When I came out to my mom, we didn't talk as much but I felt similarly safe and loved. I wish this happened for everyone who's gay...
