On Netflix’s ‘Blown Away’ – “The Glory Hole Is Really Important”

For those who may not know, Blown Away is the new series on Netflix featuring ten contestants in a glass blowing competition. The ultimate winner is crowned "Best in Blow."  Netflix tweeted this short video today delving into the importance of a "glory hole," which we all know is a furnace where the glass blowers reheat their glass.

I don’t know who runs the Twitter account for Netflix, but I laughed out loud over this post.

For those who may not know, Blown Away is the new series on Netflix featuring ten contestants in a glass blowing competition. The ultimate winner is crowned “Best in Blow.”

Netflix tweeted this short video today delving into the importance of a “glory hole,” which we all know is a furnace where the glass blowers reheat their glass.

As you can see in the clip, glory holes come up a lot in the show.

“So, when I got in the glory hole…”

“We get assigned a glory hole…”

“But we had spent too much time outside the glory hole…”

“It got too big to go back into the glory hole…”

After three recent mass shootings, I can laugh at some gay-centric humor, ok? LOL

Brain Break: Adam Rippon Riffs On The Return Of Pumpkin Spice

Ah, October.

When most of the U.S. finally falls into autumn and a whole bunch of folks do a happy dance for all things pumpkin spice.

In fact, the venerable Pumpkin Spice Latte is already back in residency at Starbucks marking the 15th consecutive year of the concoction, which the coffee giant says is its most popular seasonal beverage.

With that in mind, Cosmopolitan asked Olympic bronze medalist Adam Rippon to sample several different pumpkin spice products as part of their ongoing “Adam Rippon Riffs On” series.

Of course, you have to begin with the aforementioned PSL from Starbucks, which Rippon awards a healthy “4 pumpkins.”

Next up, pumpkin spiced Kahlua which clearly takes awesome Adam by surprise. “Shut the video down, this is f**king amazing,” raves Rippon.

He then pours the liquer into the latte, and bam! We have a 5-pumpkin winner!

Rippon moves on to food next tasting a pumpkin spice bagel with pumpkin spice cream cheese. Who wants to guess how that works out?

Annnnd, back to the Kahlua latte.

Pumpkin spice Frosted Flakes with pumpkin spice almond beverage? #seriously?

The cereal acquits itself well, but the almond beverage is apparently some serious version of nasty.

In fact, there’s only one way to salvage this breakfast. Want to take a guess?

Take a four minute brain break and watch our favorite self-declared “America’s sweetheart” take on pumpkin spice below.

Gus Kenworthy’s Sassy Sunday Twitter Feed

2018 Winter Olympians Adam Rippon (L) and Gus Kenworthy (R)

Out Olympic freestyle skier Gus Kenworthy is having a sassy time on the Twitter today as he enjoys the closing ceremonies in PyeongChang.

From sharing the news of Team Russia’s gold medal win in men’s hockey (“Russia’s biggest win since the 2016 Presidential election!”) to questioning Ivanka Trump’s “hard work” to get to the Olympics to teasing his new bestie Adam Rippon (“Please stop calling me. You’re honestly starting to get v clingy and I can’t anymore”).

More please.

Hillary Zings Donald: “Anybody Who Complains About The Microphone Is Not Having A Good Night”

After a short gaggle with the traveling press corp on her campaign plane, Democrat Hillary Clinton started to head back up front to her seat when a reporter asked about Donald Trump’s complaint today that his debate microphone had malfunctioned.

The former secretary of state returned to deliver this zinger:

“Anybody who complains about the microphone is not having a good night.”

Check the press corp’s reaction as she exits.


NBC’s Twitter Feed Killed Last Night During “The Wiz Live”

Not only was NBC’s magical The Wiz Live! most marvelous, whoever they let run the network’s Twitter feed was on fire for the gays! Read just a sample of the twitter shizzle below:

Sassy Southwest Airlines Flight Attendant

I love the humor the flight attendants use on Southwest. Much more interesting and fun than the dry, droll “same old, same old” you get with the other airlines.

My favorite line here: “Seat belts should be low and tight across your hips just like the hot pink Speedo I’m going to be wearing when I get the three of us to a hotel hot tub tonight.”

The flight attendant also threw a cocktail party in mid-flight according to the YouTube poster.

Sassy!

Kmart ad: Show Your Joe

The holiday season is upon us and that means there are going to be new Christmas ads popping up between now and the end of the year.

First up in the race to come out on top: Joe Boxer with a short yet sweet ad that will have your junk jingling.

Or something like that.

I can hear One Million Moms lose their minds in 3, 2, 1…

So “show your Joe!”


I gotta say, though, this does remind me of a similar video from the world famous Chippendales. See the similarity?
