Chace Crawford in Footloose?

Can you believe they’ve cast Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford, as Ren McCormack in the new Footloose directed by Kenny Ortega?

Sure he’s damn fine, (Note: I wouldn’t kick him off the couch for eating crackers!) but can the guy really dance?

What do you think?

Full of Pride

It’s Over:

I have to be honest I’m glad that the Pride festivities are over! I know for most it’s a lot of fun, but there are some of us that look at it like a lot of work. (Although its well worth it to see the world converge on Boystown!) had one fun Booth at the Northalsted Pride Fest this year! Thanks to CP’s Executive Vice President and Editor in Chief, Steve Long and all his hard work, the booth ran like clock work. CP’s Brand Manager Mike Livingston set up some AMAZING volunteers, including, Kinley, Jason, Dave Tripper, Brian Plummer, Frank, Samantha, Frank Failing, Brendan-John, Anthony, Ryan K., and the boys from Feast of Fun, Marc & Fausto.’s own DJ Phil DaBeatz joined Steve Long, CP’s President, Matthew Inawat and I Saturday night at the booth. It was pure music heaven!


There are a few people that I want to thank for making my weekend work! First and foremost, my partner in crime Steve Long busted his buns to make things run SO smoothly! My best friend Isaiah went out of his way to make our weekly breakfast date happen. (Albeit damn early!) My pal and physical therapist Travis of Aszend Massage Therapy and Personal Training truly was a blessing after a long week on my feet!

A big THANK YOU goes to Allan Spiers, Jeff Cullen, Jeff Conway, Andy Ralovski, Ryan Cox, Anthony Fett, Tim Fett and Will Blake for agreeing to be on the KISS FM float with me. Although things didn’t work out completely as we planed, I was really touched that all of these hot guys agreed to participate!

Finally, a thank you goes to Drex, Mel-T, Nicole, and Paul at KISS FM for inviting me on the air Friday morning. It’s a tradition that I enjoy every year. (You’re a damn mess Drex!)

What’s Next:

I hope you will join me next Wednesday, July 8, from 5:30 PM - 8:00 PM at Blackie's Chicago (755 South Clark St) to support the work of Adventrek
