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.

Jaason | 2011-05-09 21:51

He's been hot for a long time too. I met him in the flesh at Brainerd Raceway in Minnesota. We are both southerners so he recognized my accent and just wanted to talk. I nearly freaked, but it was all good, after he got my address, phone number and measurements he sent patches, pins, autographed posters and more to me. I still get stuff once in a while when something big happens. I met him back in 1998. He was bleached blonde then. I have some pix of those days if you ever want to see em, email me. He has been cute from birth, but the Vanity Fair layout photos are PFG too.

Slap! - Travis Schuldt
Sorry for the late Slap today, but I had to meet the people delivering the lights to my construction site. Geesh - "We'll be there some time between 8 a.m. and Friday."

Anyway, on a happier note, today's Slap is Travis Schuldt, who from the pictures I snagged (from Dreamcaps, probably) appears to have done some work on Scrubs lately. And he definitely looked good doing it!! He was also on Passions for a few years, but I wasn't a fan way back then...

Gee, is someone running for President?
Last week a group of 8 Democratic senators met with gay groups to
listen to complaints last week from gay groups that they and their party colleagues have hindered progress on gay rights.
Michael at GayOrbit has a more detailed look and basically expresses the very same sentiments I have.

I would hope their lact of speaking out on these issues is more like the way the repugs in 2000 (meaning Bush) didn't talk much abour abortion.

His core understood he was on their side. But, they didn't want to talk it up for fear of upsetting the swing voters. They wanted the swing voters to believe the "compassionate conservative" crap thay were putting out there. All the while, the Pat Roberson crew was fully aware that they were all very far right socially conservative in their cold little hearts.

But, this is probably too much too hope for with democrats.....

The real reason...

Slap! - Bret Harrison
Today's Slap is the absolutely adorkable Bret Harrison, star of the new Fox show The Loop. I've watched a couple of episodes, and they seem to be doing a nice job of showing skin on a regular basis. And so far it's a fairly funny show, made all the better - at least for me - because I'm an airplane geek.

I do have one complaint about last night's episode, though. There was a scene where they were discussing a Virgin Atlantic 747 and its relative merits, but when the plane was shown "taking off", it wasn't a Virgin (which I can understand, they may not have had permission for that), but it wasn't even a fucking 747!!! Come on - if you're a quirky, geeky show about an airline, you could at least buy clips that show the right kind of plane!

Oh and [SPOILER]737's can't fly from Chicago to Hong Kong![/SPOILER]

On airline security
Bruce Schneier, one of my favorite columnists, has a column on his site about the problems with our current airport security techniques.

One of the most frustrating things about the new regime of airport security, at least to me, is that 9/11 was not caused by terrorists getting box cutters through security. It was caused by our entire airline system being unprepared for aircraft to be used as weapons. With hardened cockpit doors - and lots of twitchy passengers - the 9/11 terrorists wouldn't get anywhere today. Yet we continue to hear lots of loud people talking back and forth at each other about knives with 3-inch blades.

Still, current procedures require us to take our laptops out of bags, remove our shoes, many times to submit to even more invasive procedures. To make matters worse, human beings just aren't well adapted to staring at the monitors on x-ray machines for hours on end - that's why you occasionally hear reports like these:
In tests between November 2001 and February 2002, screeners missed 70 percent of knives, 30 percent of guns and 60 percent of (fake) bombs.
and more recently:
Imagine an explosion strong enough to blow a car's trunk apart, caused by a bomb inside a passenger plane. Government sources tell NBC News that federal investigators recently were able to carry materials needed to make a similar homemade bomb through security screening at 21 airports.
But is that really surprising? As Bruce notes:
Break up something into small enough parts, and it's going to slip past the screeners pretty easily. The explosive material won't show up on the metal detector, and the associated electronics can look benign when disassembled.
And as for guns and knives?
Faced with an endless stream of identical objects, the [human] brain quickly concludes that everything is identical and there's no point in paying attention.
What that means is that a basic cursory screening is good enough. If I were investing in security, I would fund significant research into computer-assisted screening equipment for both checked and carry-on bags, but wouldn't spend a lot of money on invasive screening procedures and secondary screening. I would much rather have well-trained security personnel wandering around the airport, both in and out of uniform, looking for suspicious actions.
Most importantly:
In some ways, if we're relying on airport screeners to prevent terrorism, it's already too late. After all, we can't keep weapons out of prisons. How can we ever hope to keep them out of airports?

I prefer when Bent Blog is cheerful with pics of twinks.
hat12 | 2011-05-09 21:51

Slap! - Kevin Costner
I think we've had enough twinks for a while, so let's change things up - at least for a bit. Today's Slap is actor Kevin Costner. I know, I'm using the term loosely. At least he's a better actor than he is a director - and I include Dances with Wolves in that; unlike most people, I was unimpressed.

Actor or not, director or not - Kevin is a hottie. I find it surprising myself that I think a 50 year old is hot, but there you have it. My favorite movie of Kevin's? I'd have to go with No Way Out, and he was tolerable in Tin Cup.

And I'm betting that this one gets the WindReader seal of approval.

More Kevin Costner

I've always thought he was a hottie. But I also enjoyed Waterworld.
John in T.O. | 2011-05-09 21:51

Rich | 2011-05-09 21:51

He is good to just look at
Bruce | 2011-05-09 21:51

Kevin Costner is totally disgusting. This is an actor who never felt compelled to work out. Take a look at his slimy backside in "Dances with Wolves," or his body in "Bull Durham." Yuck! I have never understood his appeal. His best acting part by far was in the "Big Chill," and he was cut from that film.

Slap! - Kevin Rans
Having finished a week of Soap Slaps, I was casting around this morning for my next victim. I've had gobs of great suggestions, but honestly I was too tired to look through them to find a good one. And then Don sent along this guy. Flemish pole vaulter Kevin Rans. Kevin is quite the hottie I'd say, although I'd agree with finneye, from whom I got Kevin's pictures, he could smile once in a while...

Chris | 2011-05-09 21:51

don | 2011-05-09 21:51

And then there were 11...
Mandisa: God, she was amazing - quite the vampish performance! She has that incredibly powerful voice, and it has so much character. Yes, she's the first out of the gate, but I'll be surprised if this isn't one of the best performances of the evening. I worry that her weight might keep her out of the finals - but I certainly hope not. She's got my vote!

Bucky: Augh. I know I should stop complaining, but why are we still seeing him? I wasn't convinced by his performance tonight any more than I have been in the past. It just felt forced - like he's really having to try to enjoy the song. I think Simon uses the karaoke analogy too often, but at least in this case I think he's right.

Paris: At first blush, her performance felt like "Mandisa light". It's more than an "ordinary karaoke performance", but is it a truly original one? Eh. Maybe. It was good, but I think she can do better. I do agree with Randy - the ending was much better than the beginning.

Chris: Oooooh. Walk the Line. This'll be fun. Hmmm - a rough start, I think. Great ending, though. I prefer Johnny's arrangement, but that's not the point - I thought Chris was fantastic. He was totally in the performance, which is so important. And I still think he shaves his chest.

Katharine: Geesh. Have we seen this chick before? She said she's "gonna be singing to someone". She's almost there, but not quite. A pretty good performance, but not the commitment that it needed, I don't think.

Taylor: Can we just give him a Valium or something?? I still think he dances like Elaine. Although I'll admit that he's growing on me. One thing is for sure: Taylor commits to every song. Interestingly, the first 1/2 of tonight felt like a flinch, but I think he saved it.

Lisa: One word: Indicated. She has a very nice voice, but it just wasn't an interesting performance.

Kevin: Ugh. Sitting down? This feels indicated too. It just didn't do it for me. The walking with hands in his pockets? It was just average to me.

Elliott: Does Elliott look better tonight? I still think his voice is nice, but so far this performance needs to go. By the end I think he was doing fairly well, but I'm not "moved" - sorry Paula.

Kellie: I thought that was a nice performance. Her voice is great, and I still love her personality. I think we had a decided lull in the middle of the night. I'm just hoping that Ace finishes as strongly as Mandisa started. She is so damn funny!

Ace: Wow. Tough song. But he's another performer that I think commits to every song, every time. He's also one who seems to know what he's good at. But all of a sudden I'm not wild about the ending. Fundamentally, though, it was a very appealing performance that will bring him back next week.

And, BTW, Barry Manilow is one of my favorites. No snarky comments, please!

Oooooooh. DialIdol statistics have started!

Neat. I voted so many time for Ace that my phone crashed. Not, by the way, that I think Ace was the best tonight - that was Mandisa - but he seems to need the votes... As for who I'd vote off, I'd have to go with Lisa.

Elliot did look different tonight - a little more polished. And, dude, he had Ace beat in spades. Not a big fan of Lisa, but Kevin has GOT to go.
Squeaky | 2011-05-09 21:51

All the contestants looked different tonite..the stylists for the show are doing their jobs by making them look appropriate for the song they are singing. Mandisa looked INCREDIBLE with curls (and that girl can SING). I also thought that Elliott sang circles around Ace (who always sounds under the note to my trained ear). I think Elliott learned the most from Barry (why isnt he a permanent judge/coach on this show...he always gets the best performances out of the contestants). Lisa will go tonite (tho it should be Bucky)
Doug | 2011-05-09 21:51

Now that we're into the real Idol show, the talent began to shine through last night. Mandisa is the Diva; what a voice! Chris should have a career already. Taylor drives me up the wall with his practiced weirdness. Bucky should have been gone a few shows back, though he seems like a nice, down to earth guy. Kevin needs the Vienna Boys Choir. Kellie is a breath of fresh air and likely has a career down the road. Paris is Mandisa lite, in several ways! Katherine has a beautiful voice, but she seems to be un-idolish. Lisa is probably gone tonight, if not Bucky. Ace is cute, but far from the best. Elliot may look like the Amish, but like Mandisa, he has a remarkable voice that he is able to control. And the songs he chooses, are usually among the most difficult ones sung each contested night. This year, I think Mandisa, Chris, Elliot, Kellie, Paris and Katherine all have great potential for lucrative singing careers.

Get your dialing fingers ready!
Or, should I say, your dialing computers? You see, during American Idol last week I mentioned a great auto-dialer site, The next day the owner took his site down because of legal harassment from FremantleMedia, the owners of American Idol. Thankfully, he was able to get some good legal advice and feel comfortable putting his site back up.

So again, I'll be watching DialIdol's statistics as the evening goes on.

I won't be able to use DialIdol, because I don't have a land line - cell phone & cable modem only for me, baby! - but anyone who has a land line should consider using his dialing application. As long as you don't vote for Bucky!!!

We need more controversy!

I love Hillary too, but her Presidency would be a death wish for the Democratic Party. It is more important to win the next two elections, than to push a devisive female president. Plus she's pandering to the centrist republicans, and drifting farther and farther away from the progressive base. Her stance on the war is the same as the president, she just proposed a flag-burning law (what the FUCK is up with that??), and she's trying to woo the pro-life crowd. Sorry Hillary, but I'm voting for Russ Feingold.

Some less so than others, but I think it's a hazard of the job - you just have to look unnaturally flawless to be a soap star. Anyway, today's Soap Slap, at the suggestion of "Bantling14" is All My Children's Colin Egglesfield.

Apparently Colin plays Josh, the fetus aborted by Erica Kane way back in 1973 - the doctor stole the fetus and implanted it in his own wife.

More Colin Egglesfield

Life just simply isn't fair.


Slap! - Grayson McCouch
Today's Slap, our penultimate Soap Slap, is As the World Turns hottie Grayson McCouch. Grayson plays Dustin Donovan, who is back from the dead, after being struck by a car and killed. He was buried, but some mysterious hotness virus was in the ground and made him beautiful and brought him back to life, his screaming in his coffin was heard by the cemetery watchman, who was having an affair with his lover Rachel Lockhart, who's the heir to the town's largest fortune...

OK, anyway.

He's a hottie...but yet another Hollywood hunk that shaves his chest..DAMN
Doug | 2011-05-09 21:51

Yes some of a fondest memory of 1998 was the show Legacy . One of the UPN's first attempts as I recall. No one watched it. It was a "Western?" Grayson played the son of Brett Cullen's character ( a hunk in my book too)

They were in West Virginia or Kentucky as I recall with Grayson playing the son of the planter . Grayson had lots of steamy scenes with the slave girl. The love that dare not speak its name in pre-civil war America.

OK, back to reality. You mean I have to watch a Soap to see him now????

Craig, Daniel Craig
I don't know about you, but I'm sick of hearing about how former Slap Daniel Craig shouldn't be the next James Bond. Bah. I think Craig will look great as the next Bond. As he said himself:
"We're making a movie, and I think we're making a really good movie. When it comes out, if they still feel the same way then, you know, screw them!"
I was especially happy when he indicated he'd be willing to do the full monty for the movie. I don't imagine he will - it just doesn't seem to fit with James Bond movies - but it's nice to know that he's ready and willing!

Will Daniel Craig be a good James Bond?


There is supposedly a bondage/torture scene in which he gets tied up and stripped naked and then whipped on his "manhood" with a carpet beater. So yes, he will be naked.

Slap! - Steve Burton
Today's Soap-Slap, again courtesy of Richard, is General Hospital star Steve Burton. Steve plays Jason Quartermaine on GH, which he's been doing off and on since 1999. Honestly, since he started GH he hasn't been in anything else I've ever even heard of, which is too bad, because it would be nice to see more of him.

But it's national security!
This little gem comes courtesy of my brother-in-law. Apparently 18% of the federal criminal court docket in Washington D.C. is being kept secret. And that's not just keeping the names secret, that's keeping the entire case off the books. That's just incredible to me. The Constitution is unambiguous on this point: Every citizen is guaranteed the right to a public trial.

As my brother-in-law noted, this smacks of Bush Admiinstration hubris. They do what they want, claim it's for national security, and the rest of us can go to hell. As for me, every time the Bushies say "it's for the war on terror", that claim rings just a little bit more hollow. Their arrogance has been, and continues to be, breathtaking.

Bush is a supercilious son of a bitch who is dragging this country down into the depths of hell in a handbasket. Enough said.

Taking Scott's suggestion, today's Slap - in celebration of St. Patrick's Day - is Irish bad-boy hottie Colin Farrell.

South Park censored!
Via Andrew comes this story, proving that Tom Cruise is the most humorless person in the world.

Not only humorless ... really dumb.
This is the first episode of South Park I've ever watched, and I certainly wouldn't have watched a rerun if Cruise didn't make such a big deal out of it.
One can only wonder how many people like me are out there.

Now I guess it's time for me to tell Viacom, "I'm certainly not going to spend money on MI3, and I won't feel much like watching anything you produce if you keep giving into the likes of Tom Cruise, whether he's in the closet or not."
And on that I'm sure I'm not alone.

Time for some fun!
I've decided that I'm going to give this recipe, for limoncello, a whirl. Partially in honor of our upcoming trip to Italy, and partially because Raoul Bova looked so good when talking about limoncello in Under the Tuscan Sun:

It just sounds like one of those spectacular summer drinks that, when well made, instantly makes you think you're on a deserted beach somewhere. I'll let you know how it turns out.

A friend made some for me not too long ago. He got the recipe from an old Italian family and it is their prized family heirloom recipe. Sounds much like yours and tastes really good. Serving it COLD is key.

Slap! - Joshua Morrow
Today's Slap, day 2 of the current theme, is Joshua Morrow, star of The Young and the Restless. And yes, someone has already guessed that these guys are soap stars. Should I cancel the theme week because it's already been guessed? What do you think? I'm inclined not to, because there are some hotties on the horizon, but let me know what you think.

I think for the themes I'm gonna have to round up a bunch of hotties and then fit a theme around them. That might make it a bit tougher to guess...

American Idol
I figured since I'm watch American Idol live every week I might as well blog about it as I go.

Ace Young: I have to agree with Simon and Randy, just a little bit was missing from his performance tonight.

Kellie Pickler: Her performance wasn't outstanding, but she is so damn funny! I love the fact that she'll say anything that pops into her head.

Elliott Yamin: One of my favorites - his vocals are just incredible. I do wish he'd consider braces, though - I guess that comes after he gets the contract? Tonight? Eh. Again, he didn't knock me off my feet.

Mandisa: I thought her performance was wonderful - her voice just carries me away. And her personality is just so much fun!

Bucky Covington: Tied with Chicken Little for my least favorite performer. He's Kellie Pickler in pants without the personality. His voice has character, but it's just not enough. And fuck! Can we enunciate at least a little bit??

Melisaa McGhee: As my husband observed, I can't figure out why she's still here. I guess it's her non-vocal "talent" that keeps her coming back.

Lisa Tucker: I honestly don't remember much about Lisa. She's one of those that looks new to me every week. But I thought her performance was pretty tight tonight. And if they judges were looking for original, they got it.

Kevin Covais: Reconfirmed my ranking him as tied for least favorite. He is so not interesting. How can he still be here??? He really strikes me as a singer who entered a karaoke competition on a dare. And he's a little snot, too.

Katharine McPhee: Another one who seems new every week. And, um, can we get a wardrobe consultant? STAT! A relatively enjoyable performance, though. Nothing special, but not ghastly. I just don't get Randy's effusiveness about her.

Taylor Hicks: He does have an interesting voice. But the more I watch the more I think he dances like Elaine - "a full body dry heave set to music". But tonight he sounded especially good, I thought. If only I could stand to watch him. And Simon nailed it: "You're like every dad who ever got drunk at a wedding".

Paris Bennett: She's been one of my favorites since the very beginning. And the contrast between her speaking voice and her singing voice continues to freak me out. But I thought she sounded great tonight - and she was more engaging than most of the other performers.

Chris Daughtry: Definitely one of my favorites in the competition - not quite as much tonight - he just didn't seem to fill up the song. But that's OK. I think he'll stick around. And heck, let's have a quick poll:

Does Chris Daughtry shave or wax his chest?


And did anyone notice that Ryan Seacrest is way more interested in the women tonight?? I guess he watches Jay Leno. (If you're wondering, Jay did a skit making fun of Ryan and the way he behaves with the guys versus the girls. I've been looking for a clip, but so far no dice.)

Also, as the show went on, it was fun to watch the statistics change on, where the author of automatic voting software makes predictions based on busy signals. Not necessarily scientific, but interesting nevertheless. Since I'm watching on Mountain Time, I got to see the east coast voting statistics roll in as the show went on. And if you're interested:

[SPOILER]While I was watching, Taylor stayed in 1st place for the duration and Melissa McGhee was in last (and is currently predicted to be booted off). And perhaps it reflects the demographics of people who download automatic dialing software, but Ace Young had - by a mile - the lowest number of votes cast (or attempted) for him - which, of course, make his statistics much less valid. Interesting.

Does anyone have a link to that Jay Leno skit? It was SOOOOOO funny!!! Would love to send that to some friends.

Chris may very well wax his chest, but I'm fine with that, how about putting that boy in some tight short sleeve shirts so we can show off his bod.

His thumbs are huge if you as well if you've ever leant any validity to that being a corrolation to a guy's manhood.

How about a wardrobe malfunction for him!

I don't really have an opinion on whether or not Bush should be censured or impeached for his conduct regarding warrantless wiretapping and other potential misconduct.

But does this really seem like the best way to break the Republican hold on Congress? Impeachment? Really? I just don't think the Democrats are playing the hand they've been dealt very well.

Yeah, it's all about theory and tactics isn't it:

Bush has exceeded his powers by acting unconstitutionally and so theoretically there is every justification to impeach him.

But a) the majority don't seem to care and b) the Democrats should be trying to de-polarise the country so there's more chance for a big change come November and 2008.

The Democrat leadership is appalling: they're making exactly the same mistakes the UK Labour Party did in the 1980s - swinging to the left and talking only to those who already agree with them.

It's what happens when you have a Democrat House leader routinely elected with 83% of the vote in her San Francisco district - how unrepresentative can you get? And how partisan does representing such a heavily liberal, Democrat district make the representative in her outlook?
Adam | 2011-05-09 21:51

Curious. Did Roosevelt exceed his authority, during WWII, when he (i.e. the FBI) listened in on conversations between Abwehr agents and their controllers? I have opposed Bush on many issues, but he is truly been blessed by his enemies.
Dave | 2011-05-09 21:51

Bush has committed war crimes, for which, in a just world, he would be tried and imprisoned. (Yes, war crimes. He committed aggressive war and he has authorized torture.) In the great order of things, the FISA thing is small potatoes.

The same Republicans, who impeached and tried a President for lying about a blow-job, will not investigate any of it -- not the "intelligence" used to "justify" the war, not the torture and indefinite detentions, and not the FISA violations.

The problem is not the powerless Democrats, the problem is our moronic President and his moronic or corrupt and unprincipled supporters. What have they done to for the rule of law or the genuine security of the country? Nada.

You may remember Doug from Melrose Place, where he played the token gay resident in an apartment complex that in real life might have had a token straight resident. Lately, of course, he's been playing Felicity Huffman's hen-pecked husband on Desperate Housewives.

Slap! - Battlestar Galactica
Today's Slap is a bit out of the ordinary. You see, today the Slap goes to the entire series Battlestar Galactica and its assorted hotties (yes I included Paul Campbell, even though he was killed earlier this season):

The season 2 finale was last night, and it just seems like the right time to honor one of the very best shows on television. I'll admit that I have a sci-fi bias, but my husband - who hates sci-fi - watched the first couple of minutes the other night and said, "That show looks really good".

So there you have it. And if nothing else, it features Jamie Bamber. Do you really need any other reason to watch? By the way, I have to cop to a glaring omission in this post: Alessandro Juliani plays Lt. Gaeta and will be the subject of an upcoming Slap.

And while I'm at it, some commentary on the season finale:
Could Baltar be more of a piece of shit? Lying around with 2-bit whores while the Cylons move in? Augh! And there was an obvious - and unflattering - comparison to George Bush in there, but it wasn't necessarily inappropriate, if you ask me. (Not, of course, that Bush lies around with 2-bit whores.)

And how could Baltar win that damn election? I suppose it reflects elections in our country - pandering to what voters want to hear, not what is right.

And while I'm at it, I'm glad Michael Trucco looks like he's gonna stay around for a while - as long as he recovers from his pneumonia while the Cylons attack. OK, maybe he won't be around. Regardless, don't you get treated for pneumonia with your shirt off???


And now we have to wait until October - FUCKING OCTOBER - for new episodes. I'm not sure I'll survive that long.

Anything else? Not that I can think of, but if I do I'll post it later.

Update: [SPOILER]
I, unfortunately, am the one who blabbed about Billy, way up at the top. Sorry, I should have been more circumspect, but it was several episodes back, so I didn't think I was telling anything that people didn't know.

Update for Craig: [SPOILER]
Craig, at the end of the show, after the Cylons walked in the room, they told Baltar that they had tracked the nuclear explosion that was set off to find the humans. They basically said that "as long as you sit down and shut up, we won't kill you". Baltar's response was to surrender on behalf of the human race - or something to that effect. The Galactica, Pegasus and other ships all jumped away in order to regroup and hope to return to fight the Cylons.

Update: Ethan was kind enough to send along this lovely picture of Tahmoh that I had missed:

Thanks, Ethan!!

Ok. All very hot and sexy. BUT, you should have put a spoiler warning in about Paul Campbell's character! I catch the series on DVD, and haven't gotten to the part where his character dies! I didn't know! Damn. I'm still gonna watch, though!

Slap! - Will Makar
Today's Slap is American Idol contestant Will Makar. Will was voted off last night, unfortunately - and while I wasn't expecting him to win, I was kinda hoping he'd hang in there a little bit longer.

Anyway, as I was poking around for Idol information, I came across, a site where you can download a free speed dialer to cast a lot of votes for your favorite Idol. Most interesting to me, however, was the statistics page, which uses the percentage of busy signals received to try to predict which contestant will be voted off. This week, at least they were right about who left for the men, even if they were in the wrong order.

I'm especially nervous, however, because Chicken Little had the highest percentage of busy signals (what's up with that???) and former Slap Ace Young was way down the list. I know these statistics aren't necessarily indicative of actual voting, but it's cause for concern. So make sure you vote for Ace next week!

Update: Geesh! I posted the cartoon to be controversial, not Will! And yes, I'm going to be posting Elliott and some of the others.

Why did you even bother?

Slap! - Adam Vinatieri
At Dan's suggestion, today's Slap is football player Adam Vinatieri. Adam is the kicker for the New England Patriots, so he's keeping good company with former Slap Tom Brady. The funny thing is that when I'm forced, by my husband, to watch football, I'm always checking out the kickers and the QBs. The QBs are often cute, but it seems like the kickers always seem to have taken too many kicks to the face or something. But not Adam, he's just a hottie!

And I'm assuming that Jonathan will agree with today's choice??

What a man, what a man, what a mighty fine man! uh huh.

In your dreams!
Barry sent along a link to a new site from a friend of his. Michael is running BareNakedMen, featuring Photoshopped fantasy images of your favorite hot stars. Former slap Brent van Zant looks especially realistic...

Thank you for this link.. a lot of my favorites are included already..
Tom | 2011-05-09 21:51

Funny... i always pictured Brent to be much bigger...

Slap! - Paul Telfer
Don was kind enough to send along some pics of former Slap Paul Telfer that I hadn't seen before. But since it's been so long since Paul's Slpa, I figured now was as good a time as any to Slap such a fine creature again. It doesn't look like Paul has been doing much on screen lately, but he seems to be tailor made to play Greek heroes - so I guess we need more epics, huh??

OMFG!!!!! Look at that chest!!! (and face, and butt, and.....)
Bludevl | 2011-05-09 21:51

That chest is awesome! I could nurse on that for a long time!;-)
Jimmy | 2011-05-09 21:51

Rob! Thank you. I've already picked my Slap of the YEAR! He's perfect in every way! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Jim | 2011-05-09 21:51

The entire torso is just godly. I hate to admit I think he's a "butter face," as in, "His body's hot ..."

Still, I would *never* kick that chest, er, man out of bed. WOOF!

Slap! - Sasha Mitchell
Another of Don's recent submissions to the Slap queue was incredibly good (looking) and incredibly bad (acting) Sasha Mitchell. I first became aware of Sasha when he played "James Beaumont" on Dallas. He also played in 3 of the Kickboxer movies, where the only redeeming feature was the fact that people kickbox shirtless. He last did a few guest spots on ER, but he doesn't seem to be doing much lately. Too bad...

More Sasha Mitchell

Wasn't he arrested for beating his wife back when he was on Step by Step?
anonymous | 2011-05-09 21:51

Sadly enough, his wife was a drug addict and filed those charges against him before he managed to get himself and the children away from her. Between that "reputation" and raising his children he's not done much acting until recently.
fareva | 2011-05-09 21:51

Don't forget his stellar work in the hit series 'Step by Step' with Suzanne Somers and Patrick Duffy...definitely eye candy with no nutritional value.
jared | 2011-05-09 21:51

Slap! - Kristian Kjelling
I really have to apologize. Don sent this guy along a couple of weeks ago, and I've been so busy that I just didn't pay enough attention. So he's been sitting here in my Inbox for three weeks. Well, four weeks or more by the time you read this (I'm writing on 26-Feb-2006). Anyway, Kristian Kjelling is a Norwegian handballer. Yes, you read that right - a handballer. And, yes, he can handle my balls ANY time.

QueerClick also had a look recently, which I highly recommend.

More Kristian Kjelling

Those are the most amazing arms I've ever seen. They're like marble.
Sam | 2011-05-09 21:51

That front page shot is definitely his hottest.
Hat12 | 2011-05-09 21:51

Anyone know what brand of A Shirt he's wearing in t he last two pics?
anonymous | 2011-05-09 21:51

Looks like he prefers D&G for the most part, I'd say....

I'd also say... my gaydar is going off :)

Slap! - Markus Pöyhönen
I've gotten a couple of suggestions for today's Slap - Slaters suggested him ages and ages ago (way back in April!) - and Bulge Blog sent a link just recently. Who? Finnish sprinter Markus Poyhonen. He truly is an outstanding specimen - and unless you've seen the video of him running, and his package flopping up and down inside his Lycra, you've seen nothing. Unfortunately, I can't find the video right now, but as soon as I do, I'll post at least a link.

More Markus Poyhonen

Lots of pics courtesy of QueerClick. Thanks!

UPDATE: Thanks to DCDrew - and via Mutiny on the Bounty, I found the video here. Wow. Just WOW. The package shot, BTW, is in the last 25% of the video.

Mutiny on The Bounty has it posted in his January archives. 1/16
DCDrew | 2011-05-09 21:51

From the looks of the other sprinters in the background I think there is a real need for a "Finnish Sprinters Series"

Do they have a calendar, or maybe a "Finnish Sprinters Gone Wild" video?

George | 2011-05-09 21:51

OH MY :)

Texas A&M hoopsters!
In case you missed it, I thought it was important to share this. Via Andy comes a link to videos of Aggie forward Chris Walker doing a fabulous (and very heartfelt) rendition of Total Eclipse of the Heart. He and his roommates (?) seem to like performing, because you can also find Love Lift Us up where We Belong and Thug Love. And as you can see, they like doing it shirtless. NICE!

Check out more pics!

Comments how gay is that?? I just can't picture three frat boys creating videos complete with choreography...LOL.
Doug | 2011-05-09 21:51

The abs in Thug Love are great! I think these guys look like they are having a great time and they're not at all hung-up on the macho shit. I like 'em.
bottomguy | 2011-05-09 21:51

WOW-- I wish I had guys like this on my floor in the dorm when iwas in college!! Hot, hot, hot.

Slap! - Michal Bakiewicz
Today's Slap, as suggested by Kris a while back, is Polish volleyballer Michal Bakiewicz. Michal is one of those "two faces": Sometimes he looks wicked-hot, other times he looks kinda goofy. Regardless, the hot ones are hot enough to be Slap-worthy! Thanks, Kris!

More Michal Bakiewicz

Ja kocham bardzo chlopaki z Polski!!! My boyfriend is from Poland and all I have to say is, Slavic boys are the hottest, hands down. Polish, Russian, Czech, Slovak, they are all incredible!
anonymous | 2011-05-09 21:51

Did you decide to keep the hot ones for yourself? I just don't see it...
dae | 2011-05-09 21:51

No way! Michal is hot and half of Polish girls (boys too, i supose) is in love with him. If I can say sth about our volleyball players you should also check out Michal Winiarski :)
Monika | 2011-05-09 21:51

A la carte cable
I've been hearing a lot from the right-wing lemmings on talk radio lately about a la carte cable. The idea is you can keep your wholesome A&E programming and not have to put up with the smuttiness of MTV's Undressed.

Well, via Kevin at Washington Monthly comes news that TV preachers are anxious that they will suffer a sharp decline in their audience if people aren't forced to take their foolishness along with ESPN.

Like Kevin I'm very suspicious of a la carte cable - this is very much a case where the free market should be allowed to operate. If you don't like MTV's smuttiness, use your fucking remote control - or better yet, just don't subscribe to cable. Is that so fucking hard? You think there should be some right to receive A&E free of other smuttiness? Dream on. This case also demonstrates - beautifully, I'd say - the pure hypocrisy in the Republican party these days. They are just as happy to impose the power of government as the Democrats are - they just want to do it on different things.

But with this news I may suddenly find myself supporting such legislation.

All the a la carte option does is raise the price of your cable. You get a better price by taking the "package" deal and ignoring the channels you don't like. If you want to start picking and choosing channels, you will have to pay more in the end because the less popular channels are being used to subsidize the others....
anonymous | 2011-05-09 21:51

As Josh Lyman said in the West Wing: "I love how you Republicans want to shrink the Government just small enough for it to fit in our bedrooms"
Adam | 2011-05-09 21:51

It's very strange that the Republican party has become the party of big government while the Democratic party has become...well, OK, it's still the party of big government. It's time for a legitimate third party in this country.
Sam | 2011-05-09 21:51

It's not strange at all...power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Brokebunny Mountain
You may remember various horror movies, in 30 seconds, and re-enacted by bunnies. Well, now they've done it to Brokeback Mountain. Nice. I had a little trouble with performance - I guess their site may be overrun? But it's pretty damn funny.

(via Andy)

Some days I agree...

Slap of the Month! - Raphael Laus
The voting is closed and I'm pleased to announce the winner of this month's voting, model Raphael Laus:

I nearly closed the voting last night, which would have made Channing Tatum the winner, but I was just too tired - so Channing certainly deserves an honorable mention here:

Oh, and to answer the question that nobody has asked, yes I'm going to update the list of winners on the side. Right now.

You're not going to get rid of those great pictures you had of Josh Wald from last March, are you?

Upgrade complete!
Whew! It's finally done - I got everything moved from the old server to the new with very few problems. Now I'll have a bit more flexibility with the kinds of things I post...

So you enjoy voting?
If you liked voting for Slap of the Month, head on over to the GayWired Top 10 Celebrity List. They have some gorgeous men in there, including one of my very favorites Sean Faris; plus they gave me some ideas (also suggested by others) for upcoming slaps - like Ryk Neethling. Wow.

So head over and vote for your favorites!

Slap! - Eric Dane
Lots of people were gaga over the recent episode of Grey's Anatomy that featured hunk-a-licious Eric Dane -- I got several demands to Slap him. Of course, seeing him in the locker room, was there any doubt that I'd get around to it?

Eric's been in lots of different things, but I'm hoping that he'll be back for another episode or two. I mean, he's a great surgeon, there's more he needs to do!!

More Eric Dane

Good Lord. When I saw him on Greys--I was smitten...I hope he shows up again on regular basis. he is hot!
Briardawg | 2011-05-09 21:51

I have lusted after this man from the first time I saw him, on Charmed.. it would be great to catch a glimpse of him weekly again...

He's also going to be in X3 this summer as Jamie Madrox/Multiple Man. Can't wait for that!
Azgaard | 2011-05-09 21:51

I am yelling at the TV, Mrs. Dr. Shepard, are you nuts? Go for him.

Hard choice between McDreamy and McSteamy.

Did you not like the immediate reference to him as McSteamy, even before we found out who he was?
