On Philippines Got Talent, a drag queen named Big Mouth surprised everybody with a rendition of "Banal na Aso" that included a little chirping, some growling, and an incredibly winning whinny. Nina Hagen would be proud. Stick with it, and you will LOVE HER.

One of my favourite memories of this year's Mardi Gras party was dancing in the Dome with Lisa, Sam, Trent and Joel to the music of Leomeo...  as many of you know i am not a huge Dome fan - but the mastery of this DJ was just unbelievable... flanging from one speaker stack to the other, using the decks like instruments, it was just brilliant... and the Paris DJ has gracefully shared part of his set from the party online! check it out below!

Corey Feldman on Corey Haim

I was watching Larry King Live on CNN about Corey Haim's death - and his good mate and fellow actor, Corey Feldman came right out and said it - he just said it - and i pat him on the back for it! Corey you rock.

Corey Feldman on Haim: (Larry King Live) "...where were all these people the last 10 years, the last 15 years of Corey's life? … Where were all these people to lend a hand out, to reach out to him and say, you know, you're a legend, you're an amazingly talented, wonderful person who's really never gone out of his way to hurt anybody other than himself. He was there for his mom and he took care of her. He's always been a good person."

The Phantom Mardi Gras Hunk

Was it just pre parade delusion? Was i having a mental breakdown - or did a gorgeous boy talk dirty things in my ear asking why i was "filming the speedo clad asses' and 'what was i going to do with that microphone!' - as i was trying to set up a shot with the Lifesavers with Pride?

Noone from the team was around - JP was taking secondary shots, Lisa was wrangling the lifesavers to get them into position, but i swear - a man many photographer would have snapped a million shots of appeared and disappeared just as quickly as i stood there in the Marshalling Area of the Mardi Gras Parade...

Was it the slight compound psychosis of wanting to capture the best Mardi Gras footage to date, or was he actually a real person? Why am I even writing about it? Cos i know my team, i know alot of the pther photographers around town and NO ONE seemed to flinch or dive for their camera.... so was this guy actually even real?

Just shirtless, abs to kill for, and blue jeans… kick ass smile and a filthy mouth - the perfect Mardi Gras illusion?  lol

No photographic evidence of this person exists, and the the crew think I am insane - so the call goes out - if you are real - you asked where we were from - so you may read this -- my sanity depends on it, maybe you will be going to Mardi Gras party and you can appear again and proove i am not going nuts - i know the rest of the team would "LOVE" to meet you!

Did this happen to anyone else? Ghost? Spirit? Delusion? Will this 'phantom' appear next year in the marshalling area? Is this the start of a new Mardi Gras Legend?
