This video that dates back to 2009 is absolutely hilarious, despite the freaky clown mask.  Haven’t seen this before? Check it out.

MaxNoSleeves: How to cut the sleeves off your T-shirt

Max is originally from the Boston area but now lives out on the left coast.  In the summer I post this as a guide how to make your own tank tops.

Dolce&Gabbana models hit on you… on helium

Watch these Dolce & Gabbana models recite corny pick-up lines after inhaling a balloon full of helium. Filmed during the preparations for the Spring Summer 2015 show the models (hairpins on their heads and all) are both handsome and funny to watch.

This is too recent to really be considered vintage, but it is too funny to be ignored. Wait and watch through the very end. The build up is worth it.

Riding the Green Line

I wish I was on this Green Line train when this a cappella group decided to harmonize and sing.

Back in 2009 David Carroll posted this video after United Airlines broke his guitar. He used YouTube to sing about his frustrations when the airline chose to ignored him and in doing so schooled UAL on the lessons and power of social media. When the video hit more than 10M views, United realized they had a PR problem. Although I’m not a fan of Country Music – I love this video. Well done David.

Sergio and I will be in Boston for this year’s 4th of July celebrations, but here is a quick look back at all the fun in Provincetown at last year’s 4th of July Week.

The successful pop duo, Karmin, met and got their start here in Boston when they were attending Berklee School of Music. While here they created a host of “Karmin Covers”.  I love their cover of 80s duo Go West King of Wishful Thinking.

2014 National gay blood drive

Sign the petition by clicking on the link below

Tell HHS & FDA to end the ban against Gay & Bisexual male donors

Participating Gay/Bisexual men who bring an eligible donor or ally come to donate blood in Boston will also be asked to fill out a message to the FDA and sign a White House Petition to end this pointless ban.  The goal in Boston is to fill every blood donation appointment on Friday, July 11th, to help meet the White House Petition goal of 100,000 signatures gathered from across the US.

WHEN: Friday, July 11th,  10:00 AM – 3:00 PM

Movies by Moonlight Fridays at Boston Harbor Hotel

Rowes Wharf Music and a MovieThe Rowes Wharf Sea Grille at Boston Harbor Hotel hosts a summer movie series called Music & Movie Fridays (in past years called “Movies by Moonlight”).  An outdoor screen is set up on the side of the large gazebo so restaurant patrons and pedestrians can watch a classic movie along Boston’s waterfront.  Similar to the Free Friday Flicks hosted at the Hatch Shell – these movies are open to the public, but unlike the shows at the Hatch Shell this attracts fewer children.

The Postman Always Rings Twice
Starring:  John Garfield & Lana Turner
Movie time: Sunset at 8:24PM

Can you believe this video that introduced the world to Susan Boyle is now more than 5 years old? Time flies but I still remember being astounded. The obvious lesson – don’t judge a book by its cover. Probably a good lesson for everyone heading out to the clubs tonight.

I want WorldPride to come to Boston

WorldPride Toronto 2014WorldPride – organized by InterPride, promotes LGBT issues globally through parades, festivals and other cultural activities. The event is hosted every five years and the first celebration was held in Rome in 2000.  The second WorldPride was hosted in 2006 in Jerusalem followed by London in 2012 and now this year in Toronto.

I’d love to see Boston make a concerted bid to host a future WorldPride.  We have the history, the capacity and an organized LGBT community.  Does anyone know if Boston has ever stepped forward to bid on being  a host city?  I’ve included the Toronto bid video they submitted back in 2009 to host 2014 WorldPride; it would be fairly easy to make a more impressive video- I was underwhelmed by this submission considering how cool Toronto is.

Free Friday Flicks: Monsters University

Free Friday Flicks BostonBoston’s summer tradition of hosting free movies at the Hatch Shell – otherwise known as, Free Friday Flicks starts again this Friday.

Free Friday Flicks show HD family-friendly films.  The 2014 summer season starts on Friday with Disney’s Monsters University.

If you want to check out this free event I suggest you arrive early to claim a patch of grass since these free films down by the Esplanade are popular.

Not quite a Vintage ‘Tube clip but in honor of Boston Pride I thought I’d share a video compilation of 2013 Boston Pride.

Have a great evening.
