When Freezing Cold Twinks Attack (through song!)
In Plus One Steven's first post, he lamented the frigid air that welcomed him to the East Coast the other day. I can feel his pain, having just come back from Florida where I somehow got sunburned in less than 30 seconds, I am definitely feeling the cold of New York City. But, hey! So long as it's not snowing, right!?
Most people (note: me mostly) bitch and moan about the cold. They layer up and whine about it. They squint their eyes against the flying snow and polar bears and cry about it. They spray complaints in every direction as they tie up their huskies to their sleigh to get downtown for happy hour.
But then there are others. Like Mitchell here. I don't know much about him besides:
A) He's totes cute
B) He's talented (he wrote a one-minute musical number, he choreographed it, he got a full company!)
C) He's from Canada
D) He reeeally wanted to get that job as a blogger for the Island Reef
His name is Mitch and I found a link to his video application for the ridiculously ridiculous Island Reef blogger job through a Twitter friend of mine, @DavidPoon (another cute Canadian!) Unfortunately Mitch didn't win the Australian contest, he didn't even place in the Top 16.
I think this is dumb of Australia. He's clearly a talented, popular fella who can persuade a gaggle of Canadians (or is it murder, ey?) to dance up and down some Canadian Main Street with him. And if there's anything Australia could benefit from, it is a sudden influx of gays with sex to have and money to spend (perhaps on sex!)
But yes! Bravo Mitchell. I somehow have your song stuck in my head. I am driven to do a similar video, even without such a reason as you had. I also might be in love with you (give me a few days to sort this warm mushy feeling inside of me... it might just be the harmonies). You took your frigid surroundings and used them to inspire you to create something fantastic.
Plus, it's a pleasure to hear someone sing well after Plus One Alum Clint practically deafened us last week by singing "Popular" from Wicked.
And now I will share it with the rest of you... enjoy!
PS: Who's that crazy snow-throwing girl in the beginning? I want her to be my best friend.
