Who would have thought that the most enjoyable film I've seen so far this year would be an ultra-low-budget, gay-themed, magical-realist, high school musical from Canada? Treat yourself to a copy of Were The World Mine. Now available as a download at Amazon and iTunes. On DVD June 9.

Today a friend of mine sent me these pictures of a half-nekkid Robert Pattinson on the set of that teen vampire sequel he's filming. And I've gotta say, I think he's looking pretty good in these. (Hint- shampoo is your friend.) Granted, it looks like his abs are at least partially painted on, but would I toss that out of bed for eating crackers? Doubt it.

Ten years ago there were few people in the world who could compare with model Charlie Christman in terms of shear prettiness. Those of you with long memories may remember his small but pivotal role in his one and only movie, the 1998 tearjerker Stepmom. He played a character called "Stone Fox." Makes sense.

Mop-top Olly Alexander (b.1990) is an English actor appearing in Tormented, which opens today in the U.K. and France. He has three other films set to open this year. He recently told VMan Magazine, "My hair is probably the only reason I'm working." Somehow I doubt that's true.

So I found these pictures on my hard drive at work, and I vaguely recall downloading them when I was searching for pictures of some Asian superstar or other and seeing these photos and thinking that it was imperative that I know more. But here's my problem: I'm sure these guys are famous in Japan or China or possibly Korea, but I have no idea who they are. Not a clue. And I know, I know, that somebody out there can tell me who they are. Please?
Matt Prokop may be cougar hunting in his next movie, but Aaron Johnson (that's him in the pictures- you probably don't recognize him in clothing) has done him one better by actually bagging a babe who is 23 years older than him. Sam Taylor-Wood is the director of Aaron's upcoming film Nowhere Boy, in which he plays John Lennon. According to all the tabloids, and we all know how reliable they are, “From the start Aaron was dead set on her... Sam resisted it for a long time.” Yeah, I'm sure he really had to twist her arm.
Imagine my disappointment when I discovered that Sam Taylor-Wood is a woman.
I don't even know if I've told you this before, but a site I really enjoy is Toreador Masquerade. There you will find simply beautiful things: everything from a well-made watch to a gorgeous naked man. Today he posted a lovely new set of Luke Worrall photos, of which the above picture is only one. Go there.

I've been wanting to see Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist for ages, but somehow never got around to it until today. If someone had only told me that in the first ten minutes of the film Rafi Gavron would be ripping his shirt off while singing a song called I Want to Screw That Man, I would have found the time sooner.
Aside from that, it really is a charming movie.

What with one thing and the other (Hello, Dolly! Englert Civic Theatre, Iowa City, Iowa, June 12-14. 'Nuff said.) I haven't had enough time for regular blogging. So I'll just toss a few things that have been on my mind lately at the wall and see what sticks.
If I had to bet on who was going to end up in the finale of American Idol, I would put my money on Adam and Danny, with Adam for the win. But Kris Allen is the one who's album I'd be most likely to buy.
This is a picture of Zeke and Ringo (Matthew Werkmeister and Sam Clark) from the Australian soap Neighbours. I'd say more, but I have to go and find something to soak up the drool on my keyboard. Wish I had a ShamWow! And I wish they'd show this damn show in America.
Ben Adams used to be in a boy band called A1. They never crossed the pond. Lately he has enjoyed a bit of a career revival due to his participation on Celebrity Big Brother. (It's hard for Americans to understand how popular Big Brother is in the UK and other parts of the world. I'm always a bit surprised to learn that it is still being produced in America.) I don't know if Ben has any talent at all, but he is one hot little hink. I could look at him for hours.
And moving on from hinks to twinks, German Gymnast and tiny sex God Fabian Hambüchen has recently been photographed rising from the sea like Aphrodite. Damn! I wish I had me that ShamWow! And a flashlight.
