It's not that I think stupidity should be punishable by death. I just think we should take the warning labels off of everything and let the problem take care of itself.

Slap! - Martin O'Malley
RedSoxFan (sorry!) wrote to suggest today's slap, Baltimore mayor Martin O'Malley. Not only is he a gay-friendly politician that's running for Governor of Maryland, he's hot! RedSoxFan notes:
He's the finest politican I've ever seen.
I might have to give that nod to San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsom, but Martin is no slouch. Just look at those arms!




Comments
*pant* I've been a fan and follower of O'Malley for years now. Beyond those bulging biceps is a very gay-friendly man. I've been wantin' me some Martin for a while now!

Slap! - Pete Sampras
Inspired by greekdude over at Dreamcaps I realized that I had never slapped Pete Sampras, and as a service to all of my fur-loving readers I realized that I should remedy that situation. I never really cared for Pete myself (sssh, don't tell Juice!), but I can see a certain appeal I suppose. So here he is in all (well most) of his hirsute glory!

Following up on yesterday's slap of Mr. Gay 2006 finalist Blair Shepard, today's slap is the winner - San Diego contestant Jesse Bashem. Personally, I'd have voted for Blair. For those who wish to make their own judgments, the finals will be broadcast on Q Television - I couldn't find a date and time.

Now that seems like as ageist a rant as some twenty year-old who wants nothing to do with anyone over age thirty. Fortunately, there is a whole range of tastes, and someone to suit everyone, and as long as it doesn't hurt anyone, let everyone enjoy themselves. I've generally found the man himself, appealing rather than only a type. Some types tend to appeal more to me, but then I've often been surprised how much I've been attracted to a man who is completely different, but has a personality that drew me in. And if he doesn't appeal to you, just look on another blog rather than trying to make everyone think just like you do. If we all liked only one type of man, there would not be enough to go around, would there?
fareva | 2011-05-09 21:51

What "American countryside"? Are you referring to suburbia? I'm afraid there isn't a whole lot of countryside left the US.

Also, city dwellers tend to be healthier than non-urban dwellers. Why? They walk everywhere, and they tend to have healthier diets.

My fortune
My fortune for today, from myway.com:
Just slack off today.
I can take care of that.

Off the tracks?
I don't often read Peggy Noonan's columns (too busy searching for pictures...), but her column this week in the WSJ is a must read. She writes that America is in trouble:
I think that a lot of people are carrying around in their heads, unarticulated and even in some cases unnoticed, a sense that the wheels are coming off the trolley and the trolley off the tracks. That in some deep and fundamental way things have broken down and can't be fixed, or won't be fixed any time soon. That our pollsters are preoccupied with "right track" and "wrong track" but missing the number of people who think the answer to "How are things going in America?" is "Off the tracks and hurtling forward, toward an unknown destination."
I don't know how pervasive those kinds of thoughts are, but I know that I share them. Then I always catch myself and wonder "Haven't people always had thoughts like this? We're still hanging in there." But lately it seems that it's just getting worse and worse, and in what I could easily see as a sure sign of our impending doom, I find myself agreeing with Teddy Kennedy. Speaking pensively one evening with his family, he said to the younger generation present:
I'm glad I'm not going to be around when you guys are my age.
I often wonder if the problem is one of perception - we live in an age of unprecedented access to information, including information about what's going wrong. In the past, a disaster like Katrina would have been similarly devastating, but we across the country wouldn't have watched it unfold minute by minute on CNN and we wouldn't have been treated to an excruciating examination of every failure of every bureaucrat from top to bottom - it would have been much more localized.

And I have to confess that I'm one of the ones just going on with life, hoping everything will work out. I'm generally optimistic, go I think it will. Somehow.

Emergency Slap! - George Takei
A special slap goes out today to actor George Takei, best known as Hikaru Sulu from the original Star Trek series.



You see, George came out as gay in the current issue of Frontiers.

Thanks to Kip and Juice for pointing this out! And, to answer Kip's question: I always thought Sulu and Chekov were a couple...


Comments
Hooray for George!

Now far-more-interesting would be a gay "character" in the Star Trek universe. It's long over-due.
John in T.O. | 2011-05-09 21:51

not to be picking nits, but they were androgenous, not hermaphrodites.

And they've tried the gay thing in several episodes, actually, mostly ones involving the Trill species. In TNG's "The Host," Dr. Crusher found it impossible to carry on a relationship with Odan after his symbiont was transplanted into a female host.

However, the opposite situation occurred in a DS9 episode, where Jadzia decided it was ALRIGHT to carry on a female-female relationship with a new host, while the symbiont was a former husband. There was even a lesbian kiss scene, much to the chagrin of many fans.

Oh, and I don't know why you're getting upset about that particular TNG episode ... the whole idea was that we were SUPPOSED to be outraged about her/his reparative therapy.

yeah ... I'm the biggest Star Trek geek around. Way to go for George, though. Can't say I didn't see it coming. But I guess I didn't, since he's like 70, anyway.
the dude | 2011-05-09 21:51

You *should be* indignant about the "reparative therapy" (which was actually called "psycho-techtic therapy") working. That's the whole point, as the dude says. Its a *commentary* on the religious right's tenet that homosexuality can be corrected. I think it was a great moment for Star Trek, as they pointed out the stupidity of the religious right! You have to look deeper. Star Trek has always had to be more subtle in their messages, especially for the original series in the 60's.

Slap! - Blair Shepard
Today's slap is a redux of one of my very first slaps, Blair Shepard. As I reported earlier, Blair spent some time in France and made a splash on the French music charts. I found him when he was profiled in the March 2004 issue of Instinct Magazine.

And lately he's been in the first ever Mr. Gay 2006 International competition (sponsored by Instinct Magazine - hmmm). Anyway, Blair won the competition in his home town of San Francisco and went on to the finals in Palm Springs. Alas, he was beaten by the finalist from San Diego, Jesse Bashem who works as a competitive men's gymnastics coach - tough competition to say the least. Regardless, Blair is certainly worth another slap:

Slap! - George Eads
Over the past couple of months, several people have suggested George Eads as a Slapee, so I'm finally getting around to it. George is currently playing Nick on CSI and, from all indications, doing an excellent job of it. I told one person who suggested George that he really didn't do anything for me, but I have to admit that on closer inspection I was wrong - now if I could just get a little bit closer...

Now I just need to decide on some sort of image to represent Bent...

Slap! - Walgreens
Today's slap goes out to another corporate hero out there, Walgreens. Walgreens has been taking heat lately for its generous sponsorship of the Gay Games.

Once again Peter LaBarbera, of the Illinois Family Institute, makes a fool of himself. In a letter to Walgreens he wrote:
Make no mistake: the 'Gay Games' was conceived as a way to build acceptance for homosexuality, in the name of sport -- a perversion of the athletic ideal.
Right. Thanks Pete. Let us know when the aliens give your brain back.

Oh, how I hate these non-slaps.

Wired has the low down on the recently completed Space Elevator Games - the first ever. Similar to the widely publicized Ansari X-Prize the games hope to spur development of space elevator technology. Seen by many as the most promising technology for launching things into space, space elevators hold the promise of lifting payloads to an orbit at 60,000 miles at a cost of $100/lb. or less - compared to more than $20,000/lb. for the space shuttle.



SLAP! - YOUR WINNERS ANNOUNCED
Wow -- ask and you shall receive. And boy did we ever! You really came through for our SLAP! nomination request in a big way. We had so many nominations that we have eight winners in all. However, we did have to disqualify some of the more celebrity-driven nominations and keep this strictly based on friends and "real people". Thanks to all of you who sent in your favorites. We hope you enjoy these guys as much as we do.

First Place -- "J", Nominated by Ron



The remainder of these incredible guys are presented in no particular order. In performing this selection process we did learn that straight guys drink a lot of beer and have no problem getting naked together, as evidenced in the following photos. All the better for us, we suppose.

Ah, politics
Watching CNN's Late Edition this morning, I caught a few minutes with one of Florida's senators, Bill Nelson. He was, as you might expect, talking about Wilma's potential impact on his home state. At the end of the interview, Wolf asked about the financial trouble that the National Flood Insurance Program is facing. Nelson had this to say:
There's gonna have to be some major changes Wolf. Look, 60% of New Orleans residents under sea level had no federal flood insurance. Now that's inexcusable. We've got to change that. Otherwise, guess who picks it up? It's the American taxpayer that picks up the tab - so people are gonna have to start buying flood insurance or else suffer the consequences.
If you believe this, Senator Ted Stevens has a bridge he'd like to sell you. While it's refreshing to hear an elected official make such statements, it's nothing but hot air - when push comes to shove, people will NEVER be forced in such a situation to bear the consequences of their choices.


Comments
Insurance carries with it certain inevitable problems, which is why government ends up being the insurer in a variety of circumstances. Government can require the insured pay -- such required payments are called taxes; how much will be paid by whom becomes a political question, but then how much will be paid by whom is ALWAYS a political question.

Bad government is a serious mistake, and voting for morons is a serious mistake. A libertarian fantasy might make you feel better, but it does not make the world better.
BruceW07 | 2011-05-09 21:51

Well, it's hot air in the sense that the Democrats are in the minority; it's somewhat cooler air in that sooner or later something has to change.

The fundamental problem here is that you place way too much faith in private insurance - here's the flaw: private companies exist to make a profit first, and to provide a quality service to their clients second.

The failing of the tax and spend debate in the US, if I may say so, is that politicians pander to those wanting the lowest tax but you never look at the total bill you end up paying, if you addd in healthcare insurance for instance and all the other services it is anathema for the state to provide there.

Now, is the state always the most efficient, effective way to provide services? No, it certainly isn't. But is it the only way to guarantee universal coverage of US citizens of sufficient quality AND costing less overall than private insurance? Yes.

That doesn't mean ending private insurance: you can buy more, or stay private if you want (in fact great - that cuts the costs of universal health provision further!).

But isn't it about time, instead of cutting tax for the richest, yet spending more than ever before and piling up a...well, ridiculous doesn't quite do it justice, does it...national debt, the wealthiest nation on earth established a safety net for everyone - not just those who can afford it?

On a completely different subject, you also need to give the Federal Elections Commission sole responsibility for drawing electoral boundaries - take it out of the hands of politicians.
Adam | 2011-05-09 21:51

Adam, maybe you missed it, but everyone who pays Federal Income Taxes received a cut. In addition those cuts managed to increase total income to the Feds, just as they did for JFK and RWR.

You say the problem is putting too much faith in private companies is bad, but your solution is transferring that faith to an unaccountable and unmotivated bureaucracy that will, as all bureaucracies eventually do, become bloated. At least private entities have a motivation to keep customers as those customers have a choice, unlike your preferred solution.

LifeTrek | 2011-05-09 21:51

Spare us the Republican spin Life Trek - you'll be telling us next that flat rate tax benefits the poorest the most. Good grief! Talk about voodoo economics!

You really should read what I said - look - it's right above: "..is the state always the most efficient effective way to provide services? No.."

So, it's a simple balance between freedom and fairness: continue with the gross inequity of millions of Americans in the richest country on earth being without health insurance but gee, at least we're all free to be destitute, or opt for universal coverage, maintain the option for private cover on top, and you'll find you pay less as well as that not insignificant benefit: a healthier US. How are you doing on that measure in, say, the realm of obesity?

I bet you all the money in my pocket right now, against all the money in yours, that the UK National Health Service costs less per capita than if everyone in the US had a private health insurance plan. Corporate fat cats are, by and large far greedier than public sector "bloated bureaucracies".

Slap! - Shawn Pyfrom
Going to the teen world just for a bit, today's slap is 19-year old Desperate Housewives star Shwan Pyfrom. For those of you who don't watch the ladies of Wisteria Lane, Shawn plays Bree's (Marcia Cross) (presumably) gay son Andrew. I say presumably because creator Marc Cherry hinted last year that it wasn't quite as simple as Andrew being gay - but recent statements make it hard to tell. Regardless Andrew did enjoy a snogging session with gay gardner Justin (Bent favorite Ryan Carnes) last year - maybe they'll get another go.

Nevertheless, Shawn is definitely a cutie - and as BoiFromTroy notes, those of us who might not be as excited about this year's season would be considerably more so if they'll go ahead and explore Andrew's coming out storyline. And whatever Andrew has in store for his mom. According to Cherry, "Andrew pulls a hideous stunt on his mother, Bree". So let's have it!

TiVo
My husband and I recently got TiVo in conjunction with our DirecTV service. You know - the sexy HD TiVo model that has two tuners, blah blah blah. Anyway, the machine seems to have developed an electronic crush on my husband.

TiVo has that (now annoying) feature of taping shows that it thinks you'll enjoy. And for some reason it doesn't give a damn about me - all it tapes is football for my husband. All the fucking time.
  • High-School Football
  • The Mike Shanahan Show
  • 49ers Insider
  • Raiders Press Conference
Are you fucking kidding me? Not a single Star Trek anywhere???

UPDATE: OK, Doug's story is better than mine...

Comments
Fear not....you can turn of the option of having TIVO choose programs for you. When I first got mine I was flicking through channels one day...the phone rang...and I left the Tivo.....soon after I was getting 'all Christian/Catholic' all the time because I had inadvertantly stopped channel flicking on a Christian channel when the phone rang. You need to go into your TIVO option/setup screen to make the change.
Doug | 2011-05-09 21:51

Your DirecTiVO will record shows that you want to see if you select a few shows you like (either in the "now playing list" or in the program guide) and click on the green thumbs up button. You can give a particular show one, two or three thumbs, either up (green) or thumbs down (red). If you want to keep football from recording, just give it a thumbs down.

Or alternately you can turn off the record suggetions button and then it won't record anything but the shows you specifically select.

There are also quite a few hidden codes that you can activate that will do things like enable a 30 second skip (gets throgh commericals quickly), display a clock and time remaining in the program on the bottom of the screen, etc.

Nathan Gunn is a definite permislap, in my opinion -- the pix from the Met production of An American Tragedy really show off his pec slabs. 5 or 6 kids he has -- his babymaker is a body part I'd pay money to see. (BTW: Beautiful voice, too.)

Slap! - Jen Wohlner and Ryan Cooperman
Today's slap comes via Andy. Jen and Ryan are the new homecoming king and queen at their Buffalo Grove, IL high school. So why the slap?
Much is being made of the fact that a jock and cheerleader are school royalty but the roles seem to be reversed. Jen Wohlner is the athlete and Ryan Cooperman is the cheerleader.
And both are openly gay. Congratulations to both! And to the students at Buffalo Grove who voted for them.







And a Slap-Not-In-A-Good-Way to Pete LaBarbera of the Illinois Family Institute who said "For us, it's a sad thing". I won't dignify the rest of what he said be posting it here or linking to it.

Slap! - Ken Olin
I figured I'd make up for the relative lack of fur lately with another round. xyzpdq, over at Dreamcaps was kind enough to post pictures of the very studly Ken Olin. Honestly, I didn't even know he was an actor - the only place I've ever noticed him in the credits is as a producer on Alias.

As far as fur goes, I know I've scored a hit if WindReader approves (see Josh Stamberg) - I'm really not capable of judging these things. So, WR, how about it? Does Ken pass?

Popular searches
As I was poking around my database this evening, I came across the table I use to keep track of searches and checked to see who's most popular. I was shocked - OK not so shocked - to see that Josh Duhamel is the most popular search term on Bent. I guess I was partially surprised because he didn't win the Slap of the Month voting back in May when he was featured. Hmmm. I guess I'll be putting him in the Slap of the Year balloting anyway. So with that said, other popular searches (in descending order of popularity) have been:

Brent van Zant

Brad Pitt

Alexandre Verga

Jesse Metcalfe - I can't believe I haven't slapped him since November!

paul walker

Matt Lanter

Jensen Ackles

Slap! - Henry Cavill
While we're talking about James Bond, Lorne and I figured I might as well slap Daniel Craig's runner-up, Henry Cavill. Henry is definitely a hottie, but is still a bit too twinkish to be James Bond, doncha think? I mean, could you really take him seriously saying "Bond, James Bond"? Maybe he'll be Bond's twinkish sidekick in a plastic suit with nipples. Or not.

And does he kinda have a little Matt Lanter thing going on? Or is it just me?

The new USAirways
My husband and I are planning a trip in April to Italy with our friends H & T. And since I use American Express for nearly everything I buy (including LOTS of construction materials), I have WAY too many frequent flyer miles - and with Amex I can use them on Delta, USAir, and several other airlines. Since our friends have their miles on United, it made sense because of code shares, etc. to transfer the miles to USAir and make the reservations there. And since it's nice and early, we'll be going business class - sweet!

Anyway, the point of my story: When I called USAirways to make the reservations, the recording referred to America West and USAirways "joining together to create the world's largest low-fare airline". Hmmm. I'll be interested to see how that manifests itself in fares. Has anyone noticed any changes?

Oh yeah: While I'm at it, does anyone have any suggestions for what to do in Tuscany?

Update: I figured I should explain my frequent flyer card logic, because largely I agree with Kip that people should have cash rebate cards, not FF cards - mainly because most people don't use their FF miles the right way. And based on some quick research I did I find that I agree more.

Specifically, I was operating under the assumption that the maximum cash back on any particular card was in the neighborhood of 2%. I find now that it may be as high as 5%, which changes my math significantly. Let me explain. On Amex, I get one point per dollar (duh...) and the business class ticket I booked was 80,000 points; to buy the same ticket would have cost $2,600. So, my value per point - based on this transaction - is $0.032 (3.2%), more than the 2% cash back I thought I would get. If the 5% cash back is an across the board rebate, it certainly makes more sense than buying business class airplane tickets - if it's restricted, it takes a bit more investigation.

Now, here's some more fun math. If you opt for first class tickets instead of business class, your value per point rises significantly; based on some very quick research - that is by no means universally applicable - your value per point may rise as high as $0.10. Figuring out if you're getting real first class seats versus the new "business elite" or whatever is left as an exercise to the reader. Oh. And so is calculating the interest cost of holding all those points...

So, the bottom line is this: Most cash-back credit cards seem to be offering rebates of at least 2%. So if you insist upon keeping a FF credit card, make sure that your value per mile is at least $0.02. An easy rule of thumb is that you probably don't want to buy coach class tickets with miles you earned on your credit card.

Yep. Do as the Tuscans do.
don | 2011-05-09 21:51

First off, if you want really good service always fly the foreign airlines NEVER U.S. airlines!
I have flown a million miles or more and I have to say a flight on Turkish Airlines was beyond comparison with almost any other airline for service, food and well maintained aircraft!

Just returned last Saturday from 3 weeks in Tuscany. Indeed see Florence, then get out into the countryside. We loved Lucca, walled ancient city, and not quite so touristy as Sienna and San Gimignano. We also went a bit South and loved the Maremma region, including Sovana and Pitigliano. They are built right into the tufa (rock) and are quite spectacular settings for hilltowns. Have fun!

Picture it ... Sicily, 2012
John sent along a story he thought I might enjoy - the plans of the Italian goverment to build a bridge from the boot over to the Sicilian soccer ball.

It will be the longest suspension bridge in the world as it crosses the Messina Strait from Villa San Giovanni to the northeast corner of Sicily - a distance of over 2 miles.

Many of the bridge's critics are confident that Italy won't be willing to spend the estimated $4.65 billion (4 trillion lire ?) to get it built. It would be kinda neat to see it on Google Earth...

Way back over Labor Day, Juice came to visit and we spent the weekend in Aspen. Every year over Labor Day Aspen hosts The Motherlode Volleyball Classic. The weather was nice, so we were fortunate enough to see lots of nice volleyball skin. Juice and I spent quite a while stalking some of these guys, so even though I didn't get it all on film chip, I did manage to get some nice shots. So I have no idea who these guys are, but they are definitely nice to look at. This guy was my favorite:

Whither Microsoft?
It's interesting to see the world's least favorite "monopoly" have to join forces with another company to try to maintain its relevance. This is, of course, partly in response to AOL's dominance of the IM market; I assume, however, that it may also be in part to the newest least favorite "monopoly" and its entry into the space.

More importantly, it shows how quickly even a "monopolist" can become irrelevant if it doesn't continue to deliver the products that people want. In a timely fashion.

Frank's been a busy boy over the course of his career, including several years as Hart Jessup (#5) on The Guiding Light and a fairly large role in the failed series Blind Justice.

WindReader, I'm with you on the chest hair-- I'm sure he's naturally got plenty. Why DO men wax/shave their chest hair? Contractual? I know models etc. need to show definition, but please. Trimming I can understand, but grown men are men and should look as such!

Sorry for the rant, Rob-- I know you love the twinks, just don't understand why...;-)

A beautiful torso, fortunately not obscured by hair.
fareva | 2011-05-09 21:51

He is so hot! I wish my neighbor looked like him and liked to stand in front of the window buck naked. I love him smooth and would love to be his personal barber. Wish he was "full aroused"...Might not be able to breath though? Oh, by the way, looks like his sac is heavy with his boys.
Alex | 2011-05-09 21:51

Though I completely agree with the no waxing/shaving sentiments expressed....must it be commented during each slap? Got it fellas. You don't like waxing. Point taken!

Slap! - Iran Malfitano
Today's slap, courtesy of Barry, is Brazilian actor Iran Malfitano. Barry was kind enough to send along a nice selection of pictures for your enjoyment - and boy is this guy hot! He's only 24 - I hope he can raise his U.S. profile so that we can see more of him!

Hes fat hairy and ugly Wow what a slap
anonymous | 2011-05-09 21:51

Rob-- you continually surprise me.
I think you slapped him just for me. Thank you.
Now, do I need a job BEFORE moving to Brazil or can I just wing it on maybe a US passport/good looks/intelligence?
The Puckster | 2011-05-09 21:51

a bit too hairy for my taste but i'm not complaining...still nice~!

Remember Sebastian Rulli?
I slapped him back in April and then did a recent update. Well, Rey sent along some information that some of you may be interested in: He's in a Spanish-language soap opera called Contra Viento y Marea ("Against all Odds"). Apparently it's shown on Univision, and though you may not be able to understand, Rey says it features the important stuff.
He is often featured without his shirt on and the scenes are hot as heck. In this series, they have colored his hair black. This show is worth watching just for the little bon bon Rulli. Even if you don't speak Spanish, you'll enjoy the eye candy!
Sounds good to me.

A new here! production
The good folks over at here! sent along some pictures from their new film Dante's Cove. Billed as "Melrose Place meets Dark Shadows meets Passions meets Charmed" it sounds kinda hot! And with stars like this, it's good for eye candy if nothing else. And the really good news is that it opens today - and is available on the here! network, as well as in a limited theatrical release. So if you're lucky enough to live in NYC or LA, head to your local theater - otherwise, contact your local provider to make sure you get here! As for me, I get it via Comcast pay-per-view, so I'll be watching when I get home on Sunday.

Slap! - Random Hotness
As you may be able to tell, today is the day I'm cleaning out my inbox. But it's always fun because there's usually some hotness to be had. And Don came through with some of that hotness:

Nice.

I wonder what's weighing down his shorts. Maybe its the hefty package in the front.

Slapdate! - The Atherton Twins
Some of you will remember January's Slap of The Atherton Twins - the extremely hot gymnasts currently starring in Cirque du Soleil's Varekai. Well, Austin came across some very hot pictures of the pair and was kind enough to send them along. YUM:

Slap! - Brodie Croyle
Today's slap is the hottest guy on the gridiron, Alabama quarterback Brodie Croyle. BoiFromTroy wrote to suggest Brodie; notably, BfT has Brodie categorized under "Gay - Infatuation". I can relate. BfT also referred me to the new shrine site he has created that's dedicated to Brodie and the Heisman trophy. BfT is hoping (me too!) that the Brodie4Heisman site will garner some leads to some more skin.

And to anyone who lives near Tuscaloosa: Go get your camera and head over to practice. We need photos!

Slap! - Kyle Boller
Today's slap is one of Jonathan's favorites -- Baltimore Ravens quarterback Kyle Boller. I slapped him almost a year ago, but this time I was able to find a couple really nice shirtless pics, so I thought he deserved another go.

He's ok, I guess. I mean everyone can't make me come!

Dick | 2011-05-09 21:51

I agree with Doug...he's a hot guy. clean cut, all american guy...I bet he'd be wild in bed, its the straight laced ones you have to look out for, once they get into it, they're unstoppable!
kevin | 2011-05-09 21:51

Oh my gawd! I just want to lick him and suck him and f**k him all over. I'm a good girl, I am:-) He makes me have naughty thoughts.

I just want to "slap" him:-)

Slap! - Orlando Bloom
I was reminded by Sebastien that I have been neglectful in my slap duties by missing Orlando Bloom for so long. I slapped him way back in December, but that's just too long for someone so pretty. So what is Orlando up to? Well, it looks like he's busy filming Pirates of the Caribbean 2 and 3 - with the second being better known as "Dead Man's Chest". And don't forget the upcoming Elizabethtown, opening 14-Oct.

I just discovered this site today. I've been missing out. You call it the daily slap, I call it a daily affirmation.
As for Orlando Bloom, very hot! Great pics you have posted.
Mikey | 2011-05-09 21:51

ouch...that kind of changes my view of lil' Orlando. Hey a good slap would be actor John Paul Pitoc, he was in a film called Trick, a hottie!

He was also in the first season of "24" w/ Keifer. He played a computer specialist, I think.

Slap of the Month!
Augh. The polling site is broken. Fun. I was going to tabulate the results, but since it's busted I'm stuck - so as soon as the polling site is back I'll post the results. Hopefully they didn't lose the results.

---------------------

OK, the results are in - and the winner is:



Wentworth Miller

And Gemini6Ice is, of course, correct - I should do the polling on my own server - it would certainly increase reliability. But I don't use standard CGI scripts, so that's harder than it sounds - I guess I should check for a ready-made solution anyway. Perhaps by next month's voting I'll have something.


Comments
Wentworth got my vote for sure, but that's because i didn't see Chris Meloni's name...
dae | 2011-05-09 21:51

He's hot, but I dont think he's hot enough for Slap of the month.. He kinda gives me the creeps, So I voted for Jonathan Bennett... Yum
Arfa | 2011-05-09 21:51

He is not that hot at first sight, but he kinds of grow on you. He was brillant in Prison Break.

Slap! - Brad Pitt
Today's Slap is my most shocking - yes, SHOCKING - oversight yet. I simply can't believe I haven't included him at all before now. I'm talking, of course, about the former Mr. Aniston, Brad Pitt. Every since he burst on the scene in Thelma & Louise he's been one of my favorites. And, based on the queries I've been seeing in the search box, people agree - he's gotten more queries than anyone else. So in order to answer all of those queries, here he is. Enjoy!



More Brad Pitt


Comments
even if he has an average dick, i still wish i could be Brad! He's so HOT!!!
dae | 2011-05-09 21:51

The best 'Brad' moment is in Fight Club when Ed Norton knocks on the door and sweaty Brad opens it nude and Helena Botham-Carter is panting, following off the bed in the background....ah, to her at that moment would be *what's the word I'm looking for?!* ;-p
Franzel | 2011-05-09 21:51

Brad could be wearing a wholly t-shirt and ratty boxer shorts - hell, just burlap sack and he'd still be perfect. It doesn't matter what he does to change his looks - he will always be the eptimote of male beauty.
Michael | 2011-05-09 21:51

New feature!
Yes, I've finally done it! Several people have requested it lately, so I decided it was time to make public the search feature I've been using for months. So now you can search for all of your favorite guys in the Daily Slap archives - no pushing now, there's enough for everyone!

As a caveat, be aware that for various technical reasons the results may occasionally contain entries you don't expect - it's nothing to be alarmed about, just keep surfing!

And I'm keeping track of all of the search queries - don't worry I'm not tracking who searches for what - so we'll see if anything fun comes through.

UPDATE: While I was writing this post, I had my first official (not done by me) search. And the winner is:

Alexandre Verga

Slap! - Stephen Dorff
Today's slap is actor Stephen Dorff. I remember seeing him as a twinkish little 19-year old in The Power of One. I also caught a few minutes of the truly dreadful Space Truckers - he looked really good, but I couldn't watch another minute. He's been in lots of other movies, but I can't remember having seen any of them - not a good sign.

Slap of the Month!
It's been another great month of Slaps - and a bit less twinkish than usual maybe. Plus we had our very first guest Slap Suck! There are no real standouts for me this month, so I can't even decide who I think will win. My vote, however, is going to Wentworth Miller - he just looks so good and Prison Break is so much fun.

Oh, and I found a polling site that let me add more than 20 responses - so everyone's included this month. Vote away!


OK - let's hear it. Who's your Slap of the Month?

Mark Wahlberg


Billy Crudup

Present time students can simply get good academic career, because of essays writing companies, which produce professional custom essays.
RoyChris | 2011-05-09 21:51

If you are frustrated and don’t really know the correct way to create the essays buy papers, you would have a possibility to order custom essay from the professional term papers writing service. It would save valuable time.

Slap! - Benjamin Bratt
George reminded me in one of his comments about today's slap - I might not otherwise have slapped him. Anyway, today's victim honoree is Benjamin Bratt, currently appearing in E-Ring. He was also in Law & Order for several years and in several movies, including Red Planet and Traffic. I think he's quite a good actor, but I still wonder how he managed to date Julia Roberts.
