Here Are Some Dudes Who Live Their Lives (And Sometimes Bone) As Puppies
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
A new documentary deals with a group of people who doggedly pursue desires that might be unusual to many others. It's called "The Secret Lives Of The Human Pups" and focuses on the world of "puppy players," a subset of the BDSM community that finds pleasure in dressing up and pretending to be dogs. "Puppy play" attracts a wide variety of people, but most are gay males with a interest in leather and who also enjoy having their stomach rubbed or their ears being tickled. The participants get a sexual thrill out of "puppy play," doing things like playing with chew toys, eat out of bowls and wear dog-life hoods, according to the Guardian. But dressing up like a dog doesn't always lead to boning, according to a puppy player known only as "Kaz." “People automatically jump to the conclusion that this is gear we wear to have sex. I used to get asked awful questions like, if I liked having sex with dogs," he said. "But it’s certainly not that, and it’s not always sexual. Membe...

Bow Wow's Grammys Fail Was So Perfectly Awkward
Huffington Post - about 2 years
Sure, Adele seemed to have some issues with the sound, and the performances were kind of ... meh ... but for Bow Wow, Grammys night was just ruff.  The rapper/actor was in charge of kicking off the show on Monday, and he impressively nailed his line: "The 58th annual Grammy Awards are getting ready to start ... now!" It was confident. It was smooth. And, unfortunately, it was about a minute and a half too early.  It's cool, though. Bow Wow kept it together as he bought some time and successfully kicked it to the show once again. And -- good news -- that time around, it was only about 58 seconds early.  Like a true professional, the rapper thanked CBS for the opportunity and commented on Instagram that he "powered through (even though time was off)." The actor also announced he'd be back at the Grammys next year. (Bringing hosts back who've been a part of fails is apparently a theme, thanks to Steve Harvey.) So congrats, Bo...

Ease on Down Atlantic Ave and Shop Small for the Holidays: The Wiz Edition !
Huffington Post - about 2 years
I was coming fresh off the nostalgia after watching the 1978 movie classic, "The Wiz." It is one of those movies that captures my attention every single time I come across it flipping through the TV channels. Imagine your favorite basketball team playing in the finals and it is the last 10 seconds of the game. The opponents are in the lead by only two points, the clock is ticking, out of timeouts, down to 3 seconds and the leading scorer of your team takes a miraculous 3 point jump shop leap of faith. It looks like it could be all net, his team mates are on the sideline yielding a prophetic winning smile, almost slow motion, a victory is in store...Will it go in?!!! And then I push the "last" button on the TV remote because I was flipping channels back and forth throughout the entire game, making sure I did not miss the scene where Diana, I mean Dorothy kills the evil witch and everyone sings that awe-inspiring tune, "Everybody Rejoice." And honey child, when Lena Hor...
