What is it about London-based model Daniel T that makes stylists go a little bit insane? His long hair, skinny frame and early seventies rock star vibe seems to inspire some of the worst couture imaginable. Is it any wonder that the poor kid always looks completely miserable? My favorite is the fuzzy-wuzzy harlequin outfit with giant furry epaulettes. Who could think up such a thing? Lacroix, darling.

Matt at Boy Culture tried it and so did David Dust, so I thought I would try it too. "It" is Genderanalyzer, and what it does is analyzes blogs and tells you the gender of the person who wrote the blog. Sounds fun, huh? Well, it is, but mostly because it is seldom correct. I tried it and here's what it told me: "We have strong indicators that http://verasbiggayblo.blogspot.com is written by a woman (99%)."
They are 99% sure that I am a woman and I haven't even shaved today!

...but he plays one on TV. Well, in a movie, actually. Remix is a film that was released in Denmark in January of this year. Micky Skeel Hansen plays Ruben, a 16-year-old who becomes a pop star while his life becomes a living Hell. It's all very familiar in a "be careful what you wish for" kind of way. The horrible songs he sings in the movie (we are told time and time again how good these songs are and how brilliant Ruben is, but we are not stupid) are available as free downloads at this fake site for the film's fictional record label Major Records. (Major Records. Get it?) The songs are awesomely bad, so therefore worth the listen for connoisseurs of the rotten. The movie's not much, and you've seen it all before, but the boy is awfully cute, and not a bad actor, although the real acting honors go to Camilla Bendix as the A&R woman who sells her soul (and his) to make him a star. So see it, don't see it, whatever. It hasn't been released in the USA so don't go out of your way.
Frankly, I just needed an excuse to post this picture.

I recently encountered Mark Shuff in a series of photos by Kai Z Feng. Mark is an 18-year-old model from England who, it has been reported, was discovered while attending a music festival. His stock in trade seems to be the sad puppy-dog look.
