Another Sunday Roundup + Housekeeping Part Two






Indulge me, please, before you look at all the pretty boys, and read these two small requests.

I have finished cleaning up the blog roll. If you have a blog that you feel should be included,  or if I have already told you that I'd include you, but have not, please let me know. 

I've  decided that it's time to spruce up the old blog,  and I am hoping to find a volunteer who is more adept at graphic design than I to design a new banner.  If you are that person, please  contact me.

Today's soundtrack is Helen Kane: Boop-Boop-A-Doop.

Now, enjoy the rest of the boys,  after the jump.

Imaginary Lovers



Thanks to Netflix streaming video, I finally caught up with Xavier Dolan's excellent film, Heartbeats, originally Les Amours Imaginaires, starring Mr. Dolan and Niels Schneider, both gorgeous, and Monia Chokri, an actress who manages to turn the reading of the word Désirée into a comedy monologue.  Mr. Dolan, who lives and works in Montreal, one of my favorite places on Earth, not only stars, but wrote, directed, produced, art directed, edited, and designed the costumes.  Rumor has it that he also ran craft services, but this could not be confirmed. In case you don't already think life is unfair, I'd like to point out that this ridiculously talented young man only just celebrated his 22 birthday in March.

A Bit Of Housekeeping

I'm in the process of cleaning up my blog roll, removing the dead links.  If your blog is in my blog roll but the URL has changed, please let me know and I will fix it .  If you have a blog or any other website that you feel should be on my blog roll, let me know.  Even if you have sent me this information in the past, let me know.  And just this once, you may let me know by commenting on this blog entry.   That is all.

Bring On The Crazy!


Not to rub it in, but I have in my hot little hands an advance copy of Modelland, the upcoming novel by Tyra Banks.  Boys and girls, this could get crazy!

UPDATE!  The protagonist's name is Tookie De Le Creme. Really. I'm in heaven!

In Praise Of Cable TV



I can't say I was sad to see this sweet little scene on my TV last night.  Thanks Showtime!

Mystery Model Revealed!


Just hours ago I asked for help at revealing a mystery model, and already one of my fine, intelligent, handsome, and morally upright readers, Michael, has revealed the answer.  It's 18-year-old Brit Philip Ellis, and as expected, he's all that and a Spider Roll from Oyama Sushi. (Bags of chips are soooo 20th century.)  If you haven't already, you should definitely head over to Homotograpy to see the rest of Damon Baker's amazing photos of a blonder than usual Philip. It's one of the most beautiful things I've seen recently.

More pictures after the jump!

Name That Model!

I wish I knew the identity of this model, and I wish I had more pictures from this shoot.  I know that there's someone out there who has the information I seek.

The Temperature's Risin', It Isn't Surprisin' Sundy Roundup

Well!  It's been a few weeks since I've done a roundup post, and even longer since I've done a Sunday Roundup.  Do you miss them when I don't do them?  I've noticed that they don't cause quite the traffic spike that they used to.

Soundtrack for the day is Vaughan Williams: A London Symphony







Lots more after the jump!

Rory!

Here's one of the most delicious creatures to roam the planet, Rory Torrens,  possessor of the best scowl in the business,  on the cover of the upcoming issue of Client Magazine, and here's a short but very sweet video Sebastian Troncoso made of him being shot for it.

And here are just a few snaps from the video, just in case you can't decide whether or not  you want to watch it.

RIP Amy Winehouse 1983-2011

Reports have come in that Amy Winehouse has been found dead in her London home, only 27 years old. It's not surprising, but it's a shame. She was very talented,  much too talented to be the punchline she became. Back To Black is a wonderful album.

Trouble At Teen Wolf

It has already been noted that Teen Wolf's hot geek, Dylan O'Brien, has demonstrated a complete misunderstanding of the concept of showering by leaving his clothes on during the process.



Now, on this week's episode, Tyler Posey has demonstrated a similar misunderstanding, although he, at least, has mananged to get his shirt off.  I just hope he hasn't ruined his shoes.




Meanwhile, Dylan has told Troix Magazine not to expect any shirtless scenes from him on Teen Wolf any time soon (boo!) because he doesn't think it's something Stiles would do. However, in other showbiz realms,  Dylan is the drummer in a band called Slow Kids At Play, and I'm happy to report that the whole band gets their kit off in their video for a song called Bonfire. I suggest you watch in in full screen and high def, with your finger on the freeze frame button.

Styles That Might Not Catch On


 Here's a task for you:  try and make Francisco Lachowski look like a doofus.  Impossible, you say?  Not at all, as evidenced by the photo above.  Start with a really unattractive hair-do.  The coat is nice, as are the boots, but he seems to be wearing a leotard with a sequined collar.  Also, matching sequined leggings, and, I think,  garters?  Whatever it is, shows quite a bit of exposed thigh. All in all, the perfect ensemble if you happen to be doing a trapeze act.

This is how we prefer to see Francisco:  in a beautifully designed pair of swim trunks, ready for the beach... or whatever. Cowabunga!

Are You Paying Attention Luke?


Here's a nice collarbone for you, Luke.  No one else is allowed to look.

Periodic Paddy Post








Every once in a while I am forced to post pictures of Patrick "Paddy" Mitchell, just because he's so unreasonably beautiful.
