HAPPY NEW YEARS!! Birthday Bash, Daveys Basement Needs Our Help Again



Add to My Profile | More Videos

This is such a busy time of year for me blogger friends and readers, I hope you all are ready for 2007!! Yesterday was the birthday extravaganza. So extravaganza'd, that I just got home a bit ago and am writing this blog before I crash for most of the day. Too much to go into right now in my diminished capacity, but there was plenty of food, shots, boys, girls, fun and mayhem to be had by all. Thanx to all of my wonderful friends for a great night. I rarely celebrate my birthday because it is in such a horrible time, 5 days after christmas and one day before New Years, but when it falls on a Saturday, what the heck. I do appreciate everyone and all of their kind emails and birthday wishes. One of the big smashes at the birthday extravaganza, was my t-shirt that I recieved yesterday from my awesome cyber friends over at "Dare Ya Wear" clothing, Mikey and D!! Thanx so much for the present. If you havent checked out their hilarious Gay T-shirst yet, you just gotta have one. My present was "Steve was no match, for a jealous Eve", and I just LOVE it!!

I wanted to give you an update on my favorite hero, Terri, over at "Davey's Basement". As all of my regular blog readers know, (and if you dont, shame on you, subscribe to this blog dammit, lol), Terri is the wonderful wife and mother, over in Southern Michigan, that loaned her company truck out to the local high school's Gay/Straight Alliance Club, to use as their float for the homecoming parade. Well, ever since their support of the club, they have been subjected to a town boycott of their cute little indie record/t-shirt/paraphanalia shop, and business went downhill fast. For a local business to be shunned by the locals for being compassionate to the GLBT community, is sad on so many levels. Christmas was not the turn-around point they were hoping for, so their options are dwindling fast. A local band has volunteered to stage a benefit for the store very soon, to help raise money to keep the business afloat, and possibly, move to a different location that can add a small coffee bar and performance area for local GLBT youth and adults to have a safe place to hang out. I will give you all the details and information as soon as the date and venue are set, but it should be very soon. If you could, please set aside a little of the holiday money you got, if any, and try to give your first donation of the new year, to Teri's business, or go to her shop online, and purchase a tshirt, or cd, or something, tell 'em the Gay Guru sent you. More news to come, please help me spread the word on this...thanx...GG

K, I am falling asleep in my chair, and dont know how I am writing as well as I am, only using the backspace key about 100 times so far. Hope you all have a safe and happy new years tonight. I will be spending it low key as part of my local downtown's "First Night" celebration. Oh, btw, blogger would NOT let me update to the new version, even though it keeps asking me every time I sign on. When I tried the other day, it said, could not do it at this time, to try again in a couple weeks. What's up with that? No Captured Cuties today, I order you all to go have some fun this new year's eve and find your own a little......take care and thanx for a lovely first 9 months of blogging as the gay guru, I really appreciate you all...............GG

Last Post Before The Switch, Advice For Questions For Videographitti, Brothers and Sisters Episodes FINALLY On ABC Website

Okay, hold your breath blogger friends and readers. This is probably the last post I will make before I attempt the switch over to the "New and Improved" blogger...yea right!! I am getting sick of my 'puter screen asking me everyday, "Do you finally wanna switch over to the new blogger egghead??" So sometime between tonight and Saturday, I will attempt the move. As I said, I am copying my template, just in case I need some blog addresses or to try to cut and paste this back to some sort of normalcy in case it all blows up. It may be a smooth as silk transition, but I am not counting on it. I just dont have that kinda luck, and besides, it's my birthday Saturday, so something needs to come down and rain on my parade, LOL.

So I am transitioning into more and more hours at the production studio, trying to convince my friend I am worth paying so I can get the heck out of my other job that I have grown to hate. There are a lot of kewl and exciting things happening over at Accent Media, and I hope I am becoming a strong part of the team in getting the place a bit more organized and recognized as we head into a new year. One of the things I have been working on there, I could use your help with. I need some of your fabulous ideas that bloggers and readers are so famous for. Here's the dealio, as part of my marketing campaign for the company, I am creating a blog, (who woulda thunk it eh?), that will chronicle a bit about our company, and be hopefully of some use to the general public as well. I have just started the shell of it, and (gasp!) you may even get to see my picture that I have hidden from you all so well here over the last 9 months, as I want each of the guys at the studio to have a face shot on the blog. The site is at, and I have tentavely titled the blog, "Videographitti". As I said, part of the blog will be promotion for the company, but part of it will be some useful blog entries for all of you wannabe filmakers, videographers, camerapeople, editors, web builders, etc., and will offer some friendly tips and advice. Here is where I need your help!! I need ideas for posts of things you guys would like to know about the things I just talked about. Nothing super fancy, but we may be able to individually help you with those problems as well on occassion, but some simple troubleshooting questions or advice questions, that could help you all out. I want to make some humorous headlines with some worthwhile advice. Something like, "Better To Be Seen Than Heard??," and advice about using built in microphones with the camera's, or a good microphone to invest in with your camera and how to use it. Or like, "Great Ideas Begin With A Flashbulb Going Off Above Your Head," and give some advice on the best use of flash and lighting for a shot. So there you have it blogger friends. What kind of ideas do you have for questions about Camerawork, lighting, editing, software, graphic design, and web building, that you would like answered. I will be sure to let you all know when entries to the blog are posted. Heck, I may even copy and paste them over here on this blog and add them to the Gay Guru Website as well. Be sure to check out the Accent Media MySpace Page that I created also, over at

As I told you on christmas, I will be blogging lite until January 2nd, with sporadic posts. I hope you all had a great holiday season and are getting ready for a rocking new year. I see big things coming for the Gay Guru blog and website, along with our One Year Anniversary in April. One last thing I HAVE to tell you about is the ABC show "Brothers and Sisters", that I have been gushing about all season. Well ABC listened to the emails of myself and I am sure a million others, and FINALLY put the full episodes up on their website, and will be replaying each new episode online 24 hours after the episode originally airs!! So go HERE, to watch those episodes now. You have just got to see how one of the best portrayed gay man on television is written, along with actual kissing and implied sex, whooooeeeeee!! Todays Captured Cuties come from google searches of Hottie Kevin and Justin. Enjoy blogger friends.......GG

12th Day of Christmas

Merry Christmas, Feliz Navidad, Happy Christmas, and any other way any of you blogger friends and readers may be celebrating today. For all of our other friends, who have already celebrated the season or are doing so in their own ways, I hope you have enjoyed a fantastic weekend. The Guru family is not huge on extravagant gift giving over the holidays to each other, it's mostly hanging together, eating and being a family. My big gifts this year from Mama and Papa Guru, consisted of some cash and a crock pot, (that I really wanted and asked for btw.) We did spend christmas eve and part of today with close neighbors and their families, eating waaaaaay too much and laughing waaaaay too hard so the food was shooting out some noses. I am on my way out to one christmas tradition I still have, movies with friends on christmas day. Unfortunately, DreamGirls was supposed to open I thought here today, but am not seeing it in the newspaper or online, so I guess it's not. Our back-up plan is to see Will Smith in "The Pursuit of Happiness."

I will be continuing to blog lite until the new year, but starting next tuesday the 2nd, it will be full steam ahead again. At least you dont have to put up with my 12 Days of Christmas anymore, lol. Todays captured cuties are from the blog "Would I"I think this will officially be my longest post ever. I am also sorta, kinda being forced by blogger to go over to the new blogger format, so I will be attempting that this week as well. I am hoping not to lose anything in the process, but I am pasting my template to a document just in case, and bear with me if I have to recreate some stuff. I hope you all had a great holiday season and are ready for a fantastic new year. I hope to see all of you and more continuing to read this blog in the coming year and growing bigger than ever. Enjoy your week blogger friends and readers...........GG
