Laziest Blogger in the World



There's so much I want to talk about these days, Adam Lambert's "shocking" and "controversial" album cover, self-loathing homophobic queens and how much I hate them, John and Edward Grimes of X Factor infamy, the hotness on the new season of So You Think You Can Dance, so many other things. But you know, I'm just so tired that I'll do what I always do and post some random photos of pretty boys. Sue me.

Guilty Pleasures, Wuxia Edition











I don't know if I've ever mentioned how much I love old-school Kung Fu movies? Just seeing the words ShawScope on my screen fills my heart with glee! What could be better than watching handsome, athletic, often scantily clad men fighting to the death for love, honor and brotherhood? Lately I have crossed the line from fascination to obsession, trolling the internet for never-released in the USA region 3 DVDs of Chang Cheh classics, or pre-stardom Jackie Chan flicks, internally debating the merits of The Iron Triangle vs. The Venoms or Shaw Brothers vs. Golden Harvest (no contest, by the way). Just the other day I was watching a relatively minor "historical" epic called The Pirate, no relation to the Judy Garland/Gene Kelly musical of the same name, and it occured to me that if there was a handsomer man in the world in 1973 than Ti Lung, I'd like to see him. Doesn't he look especially fetching in high '70s mode?

Halt! It's Hoult!






This month's Out Magazine coverboy is one of the big gay blog's very favorites, giant Nicholas Hoult, who is photographed by fashion superstar Tom Ford. Ford also directed the film A Single Man, in which Nick plays a student who is obsessed with his older, male teacher (Colin Firth). The film wowed 'em at the Toronto Film Festival, and advanced word has it that Oscar may come a-calling.

Here's Why I Haven't Been Blogging Much Lately



That which does not kill us makes us... bitter.

When Tom Felton Met Ram Shergill...


... this is what happened.

Matt Trethe Returns





For those of you who liked the pictures of Matt Trethe I posted a week or so ago, here are a few more I just came across. Those lips! Those eyes!

Pornstar!



I don't pay as much attention to the subject of gay porn as I used to, but I know what I like when I see it. Ralph Woods (not, I'm sure, his real name) is from Quebec and got his first big break when he made a video for the Bel Ami company. After that he took charge of his own destiny and began exploiting himself instead of letting others do it. He pushes a lot of my buttons, cute, almost goofy looking, skinny, great smile, and he has an enormous... personality.

Let's leave it with this: I'm not a size queen, but I can be impressed.

Gleeful Tidings



The Advocate has a wonderful interview with 19-year-old Chris Colfer, who plays the faaabulous Kurt on Glee.I've seen this described as a coming out interview, but really it's just an interview with an actor who, unlike most actors, is willing to talk openly about his life without desperately tap-dancing around the (rather obvious) fact that he is gay. (Insert Sean Hayes reference here.) Mad props to him- I think it can only be a good thing to have an out teen actor starring in a hit TV show- but the thing that really made me squeal like a prepubescent girl was the news that Chris will be singing Defying Gravity in an upcoming episode. You might as well start digging the grave now, because I think I'm going to die.

Book of the Day





Longtime readers may remember when I featured CakeWrecks.com on the big gay blog about a year ago. Well, good news, readers! Cake Wrecks is now a book. Hilarious and delicious!

Styles That Might Not Catch On




Granted, the styles here are not nearly as over-the-top as some of the crazy fashion I've featured in the past, but I needed a good reason to post these nice, new pictures, taken just two weeks ago during London Fashion Week, of the beauteous Rob Moore.
In the top photo we see a wearable, actually quite bland, blazer and slacks combo- the kind of thing you see on the street all the time- but with a strange, stiff, uncomfortable looking, metallic shirt. An odd combination.
In the second photo we go off the rails a bit. The first, and most egregious thing that catches the eye is the shiny black garment he is wearing. What is that? Shorts? A kilt? An apron? It seems to be made of... rubber? Pleather? Whatever it is, it doesn't look like something you'd want to sit down in. Underneath that he seems to be wearing some kind of overly-long boxer shorts, which are distinguished by their frayed, unfinished hem. Nice sweater, though. My aunt used to have one just like it in the 1980s.
Now, let's pay attention to he shoes for just a moment. In both photos I was a bit baffled by the idea of a dress shoe worn without socks, but a closer look tells a different story. You see, Rob is not wearing a conventional dress shoe at all. In the back the shoe is cut away like a sandal! Business in front, party in the rear. The mullet of footwear.

Model of the Moment

He is by no means a top tier model just yet, but Matt Trethe, a teenager from Newquay, Cornwall has signed with one of the better agencies. I think he has a great look. It's the eyes that get me, always the eyes.
