Avan Jogia is All Wet




Lovely Avan Jogia is in Caprica, the Battlestar Galactica prequel which recently launched on DVD. I would like to thank Tyler Sheilds, who decided that the best way to photograph Avan was to dump a few pails of water on him first. These are via Just Jared.

Model of the Moment



Another London-based model, Callum Wilson sure knows how to work that Sebastian Flyte vibe, don't you think?

Smorgasborg of Random Shirtless Guys


Something for everyone.

Just For The Heck of It... Another Random Shirtless Guy


Random Shirtless Guy of the Day


In Just Seven Days I Can Make You A Man


If these ads, which ran in comic books in the early 1950s, are any indication, one of the biggest problems of American boys in those days was that they were terribly underweight. Luckily there were people like Charles Atlas and George F. Jowett, whose ads are pictured here, to teach them how to be real he-men. After all, who wants to be a spindly-armed sissy, when in just ten pleasant minutes a day you could be a muscly-armed sissy instead?

Goodbye, Bea





Legendary actress Bea Arthur passed away today. She was 86 years old. She is someone whose work I have loved and admired my entire life. I miss her already.

Brüno!






I presume that lots of you have already seen these promotional pictures for Sacha Baron Cohen's newest squirmfest, Brüno. I think they're hilarious. How many times have you seen pictures exactly like this on some gay picture blog? My goodness, the waxing budget alone must have been enormous.

Hell's Record Collection



Scott Baio may have been a hugely popular teen idol during his years on  Happy Days and Joanie Loves Chachi, but there was nothing anybody could do to make him a pop star.  You've heard of perfect pitch?  He had the opposite of that.  But even if he couldn't rock the mic, he could rock a Speedo.

Styles That Might Not Catch ON

Good News, Bad News







I'm conflicted.

I should be thrilled to learn that  Alex Pettyfer (who I kind of like, if you didn't know) may have just landed his first big American film role.  Beastly, based on a novel by Alex Flinn is a modern day take on Beauty and the Beast, told from the the beast's point of view and it has been widely reported over the last 24 hours that Alex is "in talks" to play Kyle Kingsbury, the beastly one of the title. Despite the fact that the boy in the novel is a ninth grader at the beginning of the book, in every other respect Alex is perfect for the role-- that is, if he can master an American accent. In fact, I'd be practically ecstatic if it weren't for this one thing: The "Beauty" in this version will be played by... Vanessa Hudgens.

Now, I have nothing against Vanessa Hudgens as a person. I mean, she's undeniably pretty. From what I can tell, she seems like a nice girl. In those naked pictures of her that were all over the internet she had really lovely boobies, if you're into that sort of thing. It's just that... as an actress-- no, I can't even use the word actress-- as a screen presence she does absolutely nothing for me. She just seems sweet and vapid and boring and blah.

Why? Why not a good actress? There are plenty of them out there. Why, why, why Vanessa Hudgens?  Why must you ruin this moment for me by being so mediocre?

Sorry about that.

Here's something they don't really mention in the dozens of entertainment blogs that have written about this, and it mitigates the Hudgens factor somewhat:  The novel is really all about Kyle.  Linda, the girl, is barely even in the first half of the book.  I'm sure the film makers will do something to build up her part a bit, but I'm just saying.

Alex Gilbert Revisited

























Alex Gilbert was one of my first Random Shirtless Guys back in May 2008 and was a Model of the Moment in August. But what has he done for me lately? He posed for these lovely pictures for a start.
