It's Not All About Blonds


Torin Verdone from Pennsylvania, featured today at Models.com,  is hotter than hot.  He plans to model full time after he finishes high school. After he finishes high school.

Strawberry Blond

Last week Models.com declared 17-year-old Oscar Lindhardt, from Denmark,  to be their Model of the Week. Pretty.

Some Sunday Evening Art

Here is a drawing from the great comic book artist P. Craig Russell's adaption of Wagner's Ring of the Nibelung.  I'd like to see more of this kind of thing. 

If you want to know more about Wagner's Ring Cycle, but you don't have access to Russell's comics, which, after all, were published twelve years ago, and don't have sixteen hours to devote to the operas, I suggests that you have a listen to Anna Russell's 1953 explanation of it.  She sums things up quite nicely.

Styles That Might Not Catch On

I have no problem with this shirt in theory, but who's going to wear it?  And where?

Random Shirtless Guy (With Suspenders)

No idea who this little muffin is, but he was the best thing on my Tumblr dash this morning.

Why I Have Been Posting So Sporadically

I've been spending most of my free time for the last month and a half rehearsing the musical cheesefest that is Xanadu, based on the fabulously bad 1980 Olivia Newton-John movie.  Why do a stage version of Xanadu?  Why the hell not?  If you are in the Iowa City area, come check it out.  It opens tomorrow at the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts.

Nam Joo Hyuk And Friends Get Wet

 No question that I am a bit obsessed with Korean model/actor 남주혁 (Nam Joo Hyuk).  I am particularly fond of this  photoshoot, as you may imagine.  He will next be seen in a supporting role in Surplus Princess, aka The Mermaid.

Whatever Became of...?

It's been three years since I posted pictures of cute Canuck Mitchell Lazar, who seemed to have a big future in modeling ahead of him- at least I hoped so.  Didn't happen for one reason or another.  Turns out that Mitchell has stepped behind the camera and is currently enrolled in a prestigious East Coast film school, studying to become a director.  Good luck to him. I just wish he had left behind more pictures like this.

Styles That Might Not Catch On


I'm still trying to unpack this look.  It's just one "why?" after another.  But the model is from Prague, so perhaps this is normal attire in the Czech Republic?
