My oh my what a crazy week so far eh? After last weekend’s tearjerker special, I’m happy to report that I’ve settled in and I’m back to “normal”, whatever the fuck normal is.
Many of you posted comments and sent me emails and messages — thank
you – but please y’all, dontcha worry about me. I’m fine. I’ll be fine. I have other
priorities on my plate and I’m (slowly but surely) catching up to speed
with all my backlogged emails and work. It’s all fun and well and I
promise to get back to everyone as soon as possible. I know, I know, I
have NOT forgotten any of you. This is why I dislike sometimes about
being a one-man circus. I do EVERYTHING as in EVERYTHING in my online
empire. If only I could clone myself…
By the meantime, here are a few links on my personal hit list that you may want to check out. You know how it goes — click, click, click!
Calling all international peeps outside North America. Now is the time
to buy something from Net-a-Porter because international shipping (as
in DHL) is free for three more days. We all know courier charges aren’t
cheap and Net-a-Porter don’t do this often so go, go, go and shop! I
love shopping there because, for most countries — including the Philippines — duties and taxes are already calculated
(and charged in advance) so what you see on their site is the only
thing you’ll pay for. No srpr To get free shipping, enter FREESHIP09 into the promotional code box during checkout. Code expires Sunday, January 25, 2009. [Net-a-Porter]

I haven’t been to Karmaloop
in AGES and now they’re having a massive 80% off sale! Karmaloop, IMO,
is one of the best places online to shop for streetwear. From now until
January 31, 2009, receive an additional 15% OFF your entire order. Use
promo code ALEX15 at checkout. [karmaloop]

I can’t get this Spring 2009 Balmain jacket off my head. It’s driving me insane. Who do I have to fondle around here to get that gorgeous denim baby? I know I said before that I don’t want to get into that dreadful Balmain/”fashion blogger” clique/Emmanuelle Alt-wannabe brigade but I like that jacket. I LOVE that jacket. I must HAVE that jacket.

The lovely folks over at COACD
named their Top 25 Faces for 2008. It's nice to see my gurl Ali Michael
on number four. I asked her what's the view like from the top of the
list and she said COACD saved the best for last. LOL. April Fools' Day
must have come four months early or eight months late. It's funny
because I have this plan of conspiring with an agency to put me up on
their website just for fun for April Fools' next year (and tell my
readers 'y'all won't believe it but I'm now a non-werqing mo' but it looks like it came early. Just kidding. I'm truly honored! Thanks. You guys rock! [Confesions of a Casting Director]

#1 – Legs akimbo girls, I’m soooo soo happy! Effective Monday next week and every Mondays thereafter, I’ll be spreading my faggotry over the fabulous Melbourne airwaves. That’s right. I’ll have my own little segment where I’ll share some third world lovin’ lovin’ to the youth of kangarooville for a few minutes. My first appearance started yesterday but this blog post didn’t make it in time — got up late and then you’ve got bloody time zones and all. If you’re in Melbourne, Australia, be sure to tune in to SYN 90.7 FM every Mondays (Melbourne Runway show) from 2PM to 4PM Australian EST. "Melbourne Runway" talks about fashion, fashion, fashion and even more fashion!
Many thanks to Mel and my Australian pimp Ms. V (ya better pimp me in Sydney, too, and oh, I want lots of freebies from OZ designers) for making this possible. You know, I’ve never thought of adding Australia on my "world domination" list so now is the time for me to plan my OZ invasion! I think I’ll give this media whoring a shot to keep the faggotry flame alive. Oui?

Well, guess who’s definitely going places??? It’s no other than Iekeliene!!! Click click click!
#1 – Bryanboy loves people from Helsinki, Finland (alright, alright. I know many of you Swedes are gonna send me to hell for saying that but what can I say — I’m an equal opportunity lover… and that includes Finns, too.), Taipei, Taiwan, Whittier, CA, Madrid, Spain, San Diego, CA, Nicosia, Cyprus, Worcester, MA, Mansfield, UK, Rheinau, Germany, Quincy, MA, Lulea, Sweden, Cherry Hill, NJ, Djurholms Ekeby, Sweden, Livingston, NJ, Mission, BC Canada and of course, all my homies who live in Athens, Greece.

#1 – Before we go to Salvatore Ferragamo’s rodent infestation, I’d like to give a big shout out to the people at Channel News Asia (Singapore’s National Broadcaster). Current Affairs Presenter Ms. Lin Xueling recently interviewed me (via webcam) for their talkshow called Blogtv.sg. (BIG SHOUT OUT TO ALL MY MINIONS IN SINGAPORE!!!!).
I just watched the interview online and man, I look soooo mean and rude!!! Damn webcam and all. Forget the way I talk — I look soo downright mean and evil!!!! I swear to god… I’m not usually look that mean. HAHAHA! And my nose… my god damn nose… it’s massive!!!! I betcha my nose looked larger than my face on TfuckingV!!! Ugh! I really need a nose job but I’m too scared to do shit.
Anyhoo… I always cringe with horror every time I appear on TV/interviews etc and I try NOT to watch them because I know I’ll NEVER BE ABLE TO SPEAK ELOQUENTLY OR EXPRESS MYSELF FLAWLESSLY in front of the cam. I say a shitload of unnecessary bollocks/gibberish/fluff and I stutter. Good thing I didn’t pull the usual "cheers, thanks a lot" crap I usually do. But yeah… I think I should do these interviews often… afterall, practice makes perfect. I hope one day I’ll be able to speak in a fabulous manner.
Help me keep the faggotry flame alive!If you are a member of the press and would like to interview me, give me a shout!! I wanna be a meeeeeedja whore!!! I WANNA BE WEALTHY AND FAMOUS! I really do! I don’t care whether it’s TV, radio, newspaper, magazine, hell, I’ll even do company newsletters in Topeka, Kansas or bumfuck, Norway… as long as you spread the word about my faggotry! Hahaha! Shoot me an email: email@example.com and cc firstname.lastname@example.org today or SMS +63.915.785.1492!

#2 – Now I know what it feels like to be chased by religious fanatics. It’s inevitable anyway and it’s bound to happen at one point. I’m just surprised why it took them soo long to do it when I represent everything against well, everything religious. I’ve been victimized by PETA, twice (ohhh I’ll never forget that day I got chased by a drunk PETA man when I went out of the old McQueen store in Conduit street wearing a Fendi vest and I had to hide at those red phone booths… the memories). So yeah… PETA? check. Bible bashers? check. It’s ridiculous. It really is.
