FREE TICKETS: Wanna see Jeffree Star at The Loft on Wednesday? OK, then e-mail us

The Loft peeps were generous to offer us four pairs of tickets to give away to Jeffree Star. He comes back to town this week with supporting acts Dev and the It Boys.

The MySpace star could be the next big thing. Producer Akon signed him to his label calling him the the next Lady Gaga. This might be your chance to see him before you can’t get a ticket at American Airlines. Hey, just saying.

E-mail us here with “I Wanna Be a Star” in the subject line and we’ll pick four winners on Wednesday. Good luck!

FREE TICKETS: Home & Garden show featuring Joey Green —who just added these useful tips

In the hard copy of the Dallas Voice out today, I talked with Joey Green, who will appear at this weekend’s Home & Garden Market Show. He’s famous for giving new life and multiple uses to household products. Stuff like polishing silverware with toothpaste, teabagging your wooden floors, you know. I asked him about items that may be found in most closets of LGBT peeps. You know how creative we can be with Crisco, Saran Wrap and of course, condoms. No? Just me?

I got an e-mail late Thursday in which Green followed up with a couple more items that probably make our shopping lists at times. So just remember when you dole out the big bucks for quality lube, that you’re also saving because it doubles in another way. His additional suggestions are after the jump.
