That “everything men’s fashion & home furnishings” store smack in the heart of Hillcrest, House.Boi, pulled out all the stops for this week’s webcast, and some of Santa’s sexy little helpers stopped by to show us all the exclusive clothes and accessories available just in time for the holidays. Aaron & Ophelia sipped cocktails and sassed their way through some top news stories including: the “bomb house” in Escondido, Elizabeth Edwards passing, new homes for the puppies found with cut-off ears, the San Diego Chargers, the closing of Bacchus House nightclub and the very sad, tragic death of local businessman & GLT publisher, Michael Portantino. We also touched on events in and around the gayborhood: the San Diego Gay Men’s Chorus holiday performance, A Very Babbette Christmas at Urban Mo’s, the YPC Santa Claus Pub Crawl, Brandon Teena Memorial Vigil and the 7th Annual Martini’s Above Fourth Charity Wreath Auction. Oh, and Miss Ophelia debuted her fabulous new ta-tas. So, grab a glass of vino, sit back & enjoy this very merry show! Read More
Ophelia and Aaron both love them some bears and, as luck would have it, one of the most popular LGBT podcasts available on iTunes is recorded right here in San Diego: 619 Bearcast. We’ve had several Bearcasters on our show, and this week, we were excited to welcome Jeffrey “JP” Pohlmann to the hot seat. And, boy was it steamy! We talked about everything from sex and relationships, to coming out, to ‘Bear’ qualities to vegetarianism and cheese. JP – Aaron’s favorite Santa Bear – is not shy and shared some very intriguing, personal, and dare we say “naughty” insights. If this webisode doesn’t make you horny, it’ll definitely make you hungry…just not for tofu. Enjoy! Read More
So, the HSSS gang is always after me to write this blog thing. I say, “really what is a blog?” The word blog seems scary, intimating a little to be honest. It’s not as though I don’t read blogs because I do, quite a few of them. I find some of them entertaining, others informative and controversial. In fact, the last one I wrote caused quite the stir. Others I find rather boring, even though I still read them. But, for whatever reason, I can’t get my mind wrapped around the word “blog.” Read More
Always looking for fun, unique places to webcast from, the HSSS crew traveled east down Ophelia’s favorite Boulevard, El Cajon, to air a little ‘dirty laundry’ – and then clean it – at The Washboard, a fancy pants new laundromat in San Diego’s College area. The super chic, hi-tech Washboard is a one-of-kind clothes cleaning joint that offers big, brand-spanking-new washers & dryers along with some awesome amenities so customers can “sit & spin” in style. Aaron and Ophelia recapped their weeks and talked some serious WTF topics that really get their blood boiling, from San Diego’s homeless shelter debacle and crazy California drivers to customer service gone wrong. We finished up with some pretty personal Producer questions that’ll have you going WTF, for sure. So, grab your vino – or your running shoes – cuz this webisode’s a doozy!
It doesn’t get much more San Diego than Aaron and Ophelia having a chat with San Diego Magazine‘s editor extraordinaire, Erin Chambers-Smith. As her twitter handle indicates (@ErinKnowsSD) she’s completely “in the know” on the who, what, when, where & why of America’s Finest City. Erin’s first order of business: implement some fantastic (and long overdue) changes at the magazine. She shared with us what’s in store for the publication as it moves into the new year with some fresh new voices, columns & content and bolsters its online offering with a stellar group of regular blogs including our very own AHizz who makes his San Diego Magazine debut with “OUT in the City,” a new weekly blog featuring the people, places and things that make San Diego tick…from a pink perspective. Get the low-down on one of the nation’s oldest and most respected mainstream city publications from the woman charged with putting it all together. And, look for Aaron’s new SD Mag blog every Friday, beginning December 3rd. Read More
