Reactions To Homophobia Vlog

Another day, another string of anti-Gay and Homophobic comments. It was a very interesting the range of responses to my Vlog yesterday I received from the Facebook pages and Sites that I posted on.  There were some wonderful feedback and positive messages of encouragement and I thank them all for that. Then there were the ones that were hate filled and nasty. Here are just a few of those winners I got. Stop Homophobia and remember Love is Life!

Homophobia In Geek World

SHARE THIS VIDEO! I am a proud openly Gay Geek and I have had enough with the growing epidemic of Homophobia in the Geek World. This is a call to action for the LGBT Community to not lose sight that Homophobia is our greatest enemy. Media outlets must be held accountable for there comments and actions. We are not the joke that you can laugh at. A recent episode of Comic Geek Speak, a very popular and widely know comic book site, made it all to clear that homophobia is alive and needs to end. Stop Homophobia Now!

SCOTUS Confirmed Marriage Equality

Today, History was made. The Supreme Court of the United States with a 5/4 have confirmed that the ban on Same Sex Marriage is unconstitutional. I never thought, I would live to see the day when I would be able to legally marry the person I love. It has been a very emotional day for me and I had to share this with you. This was was hardest to vlog to do because I am not one to publicly show my emotions. But I had to get it out. Love is LIFE!

Netflix's Sense8 Review

What happens when eight random people from all over the world are suddenly mentally connected to each other? This is the basic plot to Netflix's newest "Beng Series" called Sense8. This show is very hot! If you are looking for a series that has everything,  Sense8 is the show for you. It has romance, action, scifi and some of the hottest "adult situations" I have ever seen on a Netflix series. Without a lot of advertising and push from Netflix, Sense8 is quickly developing a cult following and needs to be in your cue ASAP. Check out my thoughts and reactions to Sense8 and don't forget to Like, Comment and Subscribe.

Ghost Hunting VS. Poltergeist

I recently had the displeasure of seeing the remake of the classic film Poltergeist and it really had an impact on my thoughts about Hollywood and Paranormal Investigating. After 20 year of being a

Paranormal Investigator aka Ghost Hunter, I have learned a lot on how to  make a investigation safe. There were many examples of what NOT to do while investigating a possible haunted location in Poltergeist and I felt the need to address them. If you would like to hear more about my adventures with the Paranormal, please Like, Comment and Subscribe to my YouTube channel. Happy Hunting!

BER: DC's Comics Midnighter # 1

There aren't a lot of LGBT characters in comics that star in their own series. Basically, I could only think of three and they were all from DC Comics. Joining Catwoman and Batwoman is crime fighter Midnighter on your local comic book shelf. Created by writer Warren Ellis and artist Bryan Hitch, he first appeared in Stormwatch (vol. 2) No. 4, before appearing in various Authority books and series in the DC Universe. Midnighter #1 was written by Steve Orlando and Art by Aco. I have some very mixed feelings about this first issue of Midnighter. Check out this Bear Essential Review for all the details.

Bear Essential Reviews: Mtn Dew's DEWshine

Are you ready to do the DEWshine? Dewshine is the latest release of bubbly soda beverage flavors from the Mountain Dew brand. Advertised as a clear citrus flavor and bottle in a vintage style glass bottle, DEWshine is made with real sugar and boy can you taste the difference. It's an interesting blend that reminded me of Pepsi's attempt in the 90's with Crystal Pepsi. Check out my review of DEWshine for more details.
