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! - Kirk Acevedo
Alex wrote to suggest that I Slap former Oz hottie Kirk Acevedo. Even though the quality of the caps I was able to find wasn't great, Kirk definitely looked good in Oz. And, honestly, I don't think I've featured the Oz guys enough. Even though I couldn't find one of Kirk, the Oz guys seemed to show their bits a lot.

Kirk is also - I guess it's still true - in The Black Donnellys. But I didn't see any caps of that floating around. He was also in Law & Order: Trial by Jury for a bit and also The Thin Red Line.

You know, honestly, it seems like there should be more pics out there of Kirk. Does anyone know of a good stash? I scoured pretty thoroughly, but sometimes these things have a way of hiding...

More Kirk Acevedo

Update (4/1/2007): Found some more (naked) pics of Kirk. Nice!

Kirk was one of the main reasons I watched OZ. I like the tormented, bad-boy type, I guess.

Thanks, bud. As always, greatly appreciated.
Alex | 2011-05-09 21:51

Speaking of OZ have you slapped Dean Winters??? He played Ryan O'Reily on OZ he is smoking hot and has a big c**k too.

New searching
Finally! I've had a few minutes of free time to make a couple of changes around here. They're small changes right now, but I'm in the planning stages of a bigger re-design that's long overdue, and I wanted to do a couple of things first.

So, first out of the box is a new look for the search feature. Rather than retrieve the entire post of all matching search results, I'm now just putting up the title and a link to the whole post. I realized that when I search the site myself, I use a search feature available on the back end that does it that way -- and I much prefer it. So I rolled it out for everyone else, along with some changes to the rendering code that will make other things easier.

So anyway - do you prefer it this way? Or should I go back to displaying the entire post of all search results?

This new search makes it easier. I just put in "twins" and it came up with a list of all posts with twins (and even one triplets). Great idea.
Tom | 2011-05-09 21:51

I tried it with "Ryan" just to see the difference and I liked.

Slap! - Alec Newman
Today's Slap comes at the request of Nyles - he requested UK actor Alec Newman, saying:
Since you have Hotties James Mcavoy and Matt Keeslar was thinkng all thats missing is Alec Newman to complete the Dune Men Set.
Alec, as Nyles mentioned, is the hottie you may remember from the Sci-Fi Channel's production of Dune. He played Paul Atreides in Dune and Children of Dune - you may remember Children of Dune because it featured former Slap James McAvoy playing Paul Atreides' son Leto.

I have to confess that Alec looked substantially less hot in Children of Dune than in Dune, where he really looked stunning. Some of the pics after the jump look nothing short of fabulous.

Alec was also in Star Trek: Enterprise for a few episodes, and had a short guest role in Angel: The Series. He was also in a movie called The Principles of Lust which sounds quite promising - and appropriate.

More Alec Newman

Here's a link to Matt Keeslar.

Great choice. The Principles of Lust definitely delivers with full frontals of Alec from the very beginning! ;)

Good Slap! I only partly bought the mini series because I am a sci-fi geek! The rest was all Alec Newman!

Slap! - David Wenham
Sorry, but I'm gonna have to phone this one in today. I'm feeling like death warmed over. So I'll leave it at this: Today's Slap is actor David Wenham. Quite the furball, isn't he?

More David Wenham

Oops. I did forget one thing. 'Lo was the one who suggested him, in a comment a week or two back. Thanks!

Score!!! Hahaha.
'Lo | 2011-05-09 21:51

He was the hottest thing in 300 as far as I'm concerned. And considering the movie, that's saying something.

Vince's little Idols
Just like Donna Summer, this girl is a bonafide DIVA! Compared to last week she was a lot sexier and sleeker and definitely ready to hit the dancefloor while rockin' those naughty boots. The uptempo song was a breath of fresh air, but she needs to smile and enjoy her performances more like her counterpart Melinda.

CHRIS SLIGH - Every Little Thing She Does Is Majic No magic in this performance. It felt very nasal, especially in the beginning. Unfortunately, unless there are a bunch of girls out there that like his hair as much as Sanjaya's, I have a feeling he is going home tonight.

Where do I start??? Even Gwen had no confidence in him! He sounded like Johnny Mathis doing No Doubt. He also forgot some of the words in the middle of the song. And how appropriate were the lyrics, "diving into my own destruction". And the hairdo, oh God, the hairdo. That wasn't a mohawk or even a faux hawk. He looked like a chihuahua winning Best in Show!

GINA GLOCKSEN - I'll Stand By You
I'm not a big fan of this girl, but I have to admit that she gave a great performance. She didn't yell her performance, like she normally does. It was strong and powerful.

She gives the impression of being more of a model than a singer. Heck she even has the mole a la Cindy Crawford to boot. The camera loves her and she loves the camera so much that she is constantly looking for it, even though she misses looking at the right camera every time. As for her performance, she does well with softer ballads as opposed to the power ballads. Doing Cyndi Lauper is good. Doing Celine Dion is disastrous. Although I enjoyed her performance, Simon is right, most of the time they are forgettable.

PHIL STACEY - Every Breath You Take
Ok, who was his make-up artist last night? Boy George? He had a very karma chameleon look. As for his performance, it was good but I find this guy does not have the it factor. He's got more potential of being a back up singer than Melinda or Brandon.

Heaven knows this girl can sing! She is fun to listen to and to watch perform. She's so happy to perform that she makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. The same feeling I used to get as a kid watching the muppets. She reminds me of one, she's cute and has no neck like them.
As for Simon dispensing fashion advice, that's like Nicole ritchie giving weight loss tips. Shouldn't happen!

What I like about this guy is his way of arranging a song and making it hip and contemporary. He's very consistent at doing that and although he gave a good performance, it was a little boring.

She can definitely sing anything and she proves that tonight. I just had an issue with the outfit. It was a little too picnic trashy chic, but I guess eventually all Mickey Mouse Club members get a little down and dirty. Can anyone say Britney or Christina?

I enjoyed last week's performance a lot more. He definitely seemed to struggle with this song. I think he was a little shaken from being in the bottom two last week. He looked like a discouraged, scared little boy up there. His performance was good but safe.

Blake probably has the best chance with the boys (I didn't mean that the way it sounded, but there it is). He has a good voice and does some really cool arrangements. But. . .has anyone else noticed that sexy little snarl he does with his upper right lip? Baby!
Cruz | 2011-05-09 21:51

I really hate blake! This is the second week he tries to pull off a second rate 311 performance. That arrangement last night wasn't original at all! 311 covered it for 51st date and that's the way that they arranged the song!
Bon | 2011-05-09 21:51

Why anyone takes this ridiculous show seriously is beyond me. It's such a waste.
anonymous | 2011-05-09 21:51

Okay, I have to say first that I am a huge fan of Blake's, so I don't intend this as any sort of slam (hopefully most people will see some good in it), but Blake's voice reminds me so much of the lead singer from Erasure--especially in this week's and last week's performances. But honestly, are any of us on "the team" actually listening to his voice...or are we too busy watching the way his body moves? ;-)

Random hottie - Curtis Stone

I ran across today's random hottie on Today this morning. He was teaching Meredith Viera how to cook and looking very good doing it.

i looooooove the take home chef! i'm afraid if i had the chance to take him home, i'd never let him leave!

Ten little Idols
LaKisha Jones
Fantastic performance! Her voice continues to amaze me with its dynamic range. And she looked great tonight. A.

Chris Sligh
It seems dangerous to me to take on a song as iconic as this one. His tone is all wrong, but you can hear him trying to mimic Sting - bad idea. He really should have worked out a different arrangement he could do. As it is, this is nothing more than karaoke. Bad karaoke. I have to disagree with the Randy and Paula - his problem wasn't limited to tempo. It was far more than that. C-.

Simon: "It was a mess." Nailed it. Phew.

Chris: "My bad." Indeed.

Gina Glockson
Good start, if a sketchy falsetto. Perhaps it's just me, but I like this week's performance much better than last week's. But maybe that punk (is it safe to call it that?) shit just turns me off. I thought it was a pretty good performance, actually. B+.

Simon: "Your best performance." I'd have to agree. But better than LaKisha? Hmmm.

Sanjaya Malakar
Oh lord. He can't remember the words when he's in with Gwen? Not a good sign. And she thinks it's a tough song? Christ. I think he knows he should be gone already, so he's gone right off the deep end. Evidence: the hair. He went up there for just a second, but surprisingly, he has a pretty good tone tonight. Apparently, as is common, not caring makes him better. B.

Paula: I think he's getting close to having the gumption. If he makes it, next week could be interesting.

It's funny, I've been comparing him to Chicken Little and John Stevens, but Sanjaya is WAY WAY WAY more interesting. Yay!

Haley Scarnato
My husband says: "She looks like the love child of Sally Field and Sandra Bullock." Hmmm. Haley's working the sexy angle again tonight, which is what she's gotta do. Because otherwise this performance just isn't interesting. Sure she can hit the occasional note, but eh. B.

Simon: "Sweet but forgettable." Yep.

Phil Stacey
Ah. I think Phil is my current least favorite. Hopefully he won't ruin this the way Chris Sligh ruined his. He sounds better than Chris, but I still think this is basically a karaoke performance. It's better than his normal stuff, and I don't dislike him quite as much as before. B-.

Melinda Doolittle
Gwen thinks her voice is "beautiful and mindblowing." Wow. And her performance was, as usual, incredible. There's nothing at all to complain about. She's true to the song, but making it her own. If she doesn't win this, it's an absolute crime. A.

Randy: "Da bomb!"

Simon: "Hate the outfit." Thank you, Mr. Blackwell.

Blake Lewis
Wow, this is a tough song to sing, but like Gwen said, I think he can do it if he's careful. But the beatbox has to be really light and just right. I think he did the perfect amount of beatbox, actually. And he had a great tone throughout. B+.

Randy: I agree, it wasn't my favorite song choice for him, but he did a really nice job.

Oh, and he looks really cute tonight.

Jordin Sparks
This is really hard because of the range required - and you can hear her bottoming out in a dangerous way. But she's got a good attitude going on that's helping her out. She did a good job on a very tough song. B+.

Chris Richardson
"Vocal olympics." I love that. I'm sure the IOC has already sued her for that. Hopefully they won't sue me too. As for Chris, he's doing a great job. Really involved in the song, but doing a good job of restraining his tendency to play around with his voice. And he's always fun to watch. B+.

Randy: "Just believe baby." Well, that says it all.

Simon: "You struggled in the middle." I don't think so - I thought it was great all the way through.

And Gwen did a great job with the coaching and commentary this week! I love her!

To go this week: Chris Sligh. Buh-bye. (I hope.)

Slap! - Michael Shanks
Today's Slap is courtesy of John; he wrote to suggest Stargate SG-1 actor Michael Shanks, saying, "I think he would fit in nicely." Well, I think that's quite an understatement.

What a hottie, although, again, he has a tendency to shave his chest too much. And as for the glasses, they're very much a "two face" phenomenon - sometimes good, sometimes bad. Actually, sometimes they look really hot, but that's the square ones - the round ones look too geeky.

He seems to have done quite a few other small things other than Stargate, but I don't really recognize any of them except the short guest runs on various series. Looking into his future, he has a project that's sure to be an Oscar-winner: MegaSnake. Actually, it's a TV movie, so it'll have to be an Emmy, but how could a movie named "MegaSnake" miss?

More Michael Shanks

fareva said
I don't think he does shave. I've never seen any hair on his beautifully smooth chest during years of watching, and there's nothing here that shows any. His only great fault is that he has never spent enough time out of his clothes to sufficiently display what a marvelous bit of Canada he is.
Doesn't the third pic from the bottom show some fur? Or do I need to clean my screen again?

Update (3/27/2007): D'oh! Fareva was right - that pic with fur isn't Michael - as Chris said, it's former Slap Ben Browder. So maybe Michael doesn't shave. That's a good thing.

Megacute! Megasnake? How on earth to things with names like that get greenlite in the first place?
Snarf | 2011-05-09 21:51

Finally, I have been asking you for Michael over and over again...many Thanks!
Rich | 2011-05-09 21:51

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! SG-1 is a watchable show, but I spend much of that time hoping this guy's shirt will come off (and I've only seen that happen once!).

Excellent, excellent, excellent slap!
Can you tell I like him? Can you tell I like him? Can you tell I like him?
Cruz | 2011-05-09 21:51

A) The second to last pic (with the long hair) is a fake - Michael's face on someone else's body.
B) He is a quite furry man. he definitely shaves his chest. He said it on stage at some Con last year AND I've seen him up close with a few top shirt buttons undone - You definitely see stubble....

March Gayness rolls on...
...without me.

Just kidding of course. But the voting for the Final Four has commenced. If I may, I'd like to make a few recommendations:



Kenneth in the 212

I don't really have a strong opinion in the other half of the draw, but I like OMG Blog and Towleroad.

And let me say about the two blogs I recommended, I have nothing at all against their competition (the Outsports guys are particularly nice).

So go vote! But please, only vote once...

Ok, you KNOW I really like your blog, and I really like Scott-O-Rama (could be a name thing!)and I really like Towleroad, omg blog truely gets on my nerves, but kenneth in the 212? COME ON!
How could you possibly recommend a blog where the author writes such crappy things, like he did about Kevin Tillman, Pat Tillman's brother, on 10/24 (band of brothers)? On too many occasions this jackass has posted, obviously without thinking about what his (stupid, missguided?) pissy words mean. I don't go there anymore, the boy is a bitch.
Direct quote: "I don't blame you for being mad, Kevin. But everyone I know feels as helpless as you do... ...If it's so easy to stop this insanity, why aren't you?" WTF?
Scott | 2011-05-09 21:51

I agree about Kenneth in the 212. He syas things like.. if someone has cancer, couldnt happen to a better person (Tony Snow) and 'I'd like to kill everyone I see who smokes' and then dont mention anyone more than 2.6 lbs overweight...

March Gayness
Unfortunately, I have to inform everyone who was kind enough to vote for me that I did not, in fact, make the Elite 8 in The Malcontent's March Gayness. The raw results reported that I beat my formidable competitor Outsports by a healthy margin, but in looking at the raw voting data, Matt determined that there were some "shenanigans".

And having conducted more than one poll myself, I am 100% certain that Matt was right - in fact, I can't imagine that there weren't shenanigans. And frankly, for me to beat a competitor as strong as Outsports by a 50% margin simply wasn't credible.

So, as much as I'm disappointed by the results in my particular race, it seems like Matt did the best he could to sort out the "good" votes from the "bad". And I certainly appreciate the effort he's putting into the contest! And I was thrilled to have made the Sweet 16, frankly.

So next year, I'll train harder and hopefully the Malcontent guys will decide to put on another great tournament.

And, of course, thanks so much for voting for me!!

Elite 8 voting will start later today, so I'll let you know once that happens...

Aww... Buck up little camper. Win or lose, we got nothing but love for ya baby! What you have won for sure is a big "slap" on the back for keeping us all "slap" happy!
Dave83201 | 2011-05-09 21:51

Rob, I still think slapping yourself for the benefit of your fans would be well-deserved consolation.
James | 2011-05-09 21:51

Rob! I completely agree - you should slap yourself... remember hotness is in the eye of the beholder, and you have a whole army of guys out here that love ya for all that you do. The only caveat may be that you would not be allowed to be in the "Slap of the Month" tally... 'CAUSE YOU WOULD RULE!

Slap! - Ari Gold
OK, file today's Slap, Ari Gold in the category of "Why didn't I Slap him before?" Dae wrote to remind me that he'd asked for Ari before, and I'd neglected his request for far too long.

And as I looked through my list of requests, I found that he was listed under "out" Slaps. Is this true? Well, kick me in the nads and call me squeaky.

So, just who is Ari Gold? Well, according to his site he's an "International Recording Artist". OK. Who's got more? Regardless, he's fucking hot hot hot! He kinda gives me a Chris Daughtry vibe (I can't say if that applies to his music, but he looks like him, doesn't he?). Well, actually, now I can say. From Ari's site:
...steeped in sticky pop melodies, sing-along hooks, and butt-
shakin' funk rhythms... solid radio-ready material.
Gold is about to hit pay dirt!
-- Larry Flick, Billboard
OK, I'm pretty sure that wouldn't apply to Chris Daughtry. So there you have it. I may have to check out Ari's music. Honestly, I'd like to check out more of Ari, but that seems less likely. And back to Chris D. for just a moment, he looks like Chris, but I think Ari's way hotter. I mean there's something sexy about Chris, but Ari's just in amazing shape!!


More Ari Gold

Update (3/26/2007): Speaking of Derek and of Ari, Derek was ranting a bit about Ari and his diva attitude today. How funny...

Dude is way hot, but he's more Chelsea than ghetto, and his music is kind of trite - saw him at DC's Pride a couple of years ago...snooze. I'd still screw his brains out.

Not sure what to make about the comment about being "squeaky" after getting kicked in the nads. You trying to say something?

Derek & Romaine!
You know, I haven't mentioned Sirius Radio's OutQ channel generally - and Derek & Romaine specifically - in quite some time, but my husband and I are returning from a short roadtrip today (pics later...), and I remembered that D&R are on at 4pm MDT. Woohoo!

So here we are listening, and I'm surfing - thanks to my fantastic Sprint card! - and I figured now was as good a time as any to mention them. I haven't listened in forever because I didn't want to pay for 2 subscriptions, but my husband's new car has a Sirius radio, so now we have a subscription. So I'm hoping to be able to listen online...

Anyway, if you have Sirius, check 'em out!

Slap! - Steve Guttenberg
OK, I know these are words that you thought you'd never see from my keyboard, but today's Slap is actor Steve Guttenberg. I can't take 100% credit for Steve, after all it was Thom that suggested him, but I think he's so hot. Or at least he was so hot. Sometimes.

Specifically, did you ever see him in Cocoon? Wow. He looked hot as the boat driver that sent all those crazy little old people flying into space. Steve was also in that propoganda film that your school (well, my school, at least) got so worked up about when I was a kid - The Day After.

As for Steve himself, I don't know how he looks these days so much, but he used to be quite the hottie, with a nice little patch of chest hair. Yum!

Also loved him in "Three Men and A Baby" as the hunky artist living a wild singles life with two other hot men - that still gives me PLENTY to fantasize about!!!

Slap! - Greg Vaughan
You can blame Joseph for the hideous creature you see before you. He wrote, saying:
Greg Vaughan should be slapped, and slapped hard. He's built, and with the combination of dark hair, blue eyes, and an awesome hairy chest...I think he'd be a great addition.
As any regular reader should instantly know, I was being sarcastic when I referred to Greg Vaughan here as hideous. The man is nearly perfect. And he has a really nice furry chest - nice enough that it's really a shame that he shaves it so regularly.

Anyway, Greg, as you may have guessed, stars as Lucky Spencer on General Hospital. He also spent some time on Charmed.

Random (stupid) thought...
Does anyone else hate changing light bulbs?

Go with the compact fluorescent bulbs. They are a bit more expensive (I got mine on sale recently.), but they last several times as long. And changing out your standard incandescent light bulbs helps the environment and can save you some on your electric bill. This has been Friday's Public Service Announcement. We now return you to your regular programming.

I guess changing our light bulbs is going to save the planet. If we are to become less dependent on foreign energy sources, then lets utilize ANWAR and the oil in the Gulf of Mexico. While New Orleans was largely destroyed by Katrina, the existing oil rigs in the Gulf survived unscathed.

Random hottie(s)
This video comes courtesy of Juicy. I just wish there were more of the boys in it...

The chicks killed it for me. Guess I shouldn't watch so much chick-less gay porn, it has spoiled me.

Slap! - Tom Hardy
Today's Slap comes courtesy of Sev40. He wrote to request Tom Hardy, saying:
He's quite sexy and has had his fair share of revealing scenes in some movies and TV as well.
Apparently he had quite a nice sex scene in Band of Brothers, and I can definitely testify to the fabulosity of his ass in Scenes of a Sexual Nature.

But the only place I can recall seeing him is as a cloned Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek: Nemesis. Apparently he was in Black Hawk Down also, but he must have had a small role. Can anyone point us to some other scenes we should catch?

I'm partial to those amazing DSL's

Cue me ripping off my shirt and running around the court again!

I was down for a while, but you guys rallied me to beat some fierce competition against Made in Brazil in March Gayness. I won by a single vote!! So thanks again!

So it's on to the round of 16! So if I can beg again, please go vote for me. I'm really getting shameless here, huh?

And as usual, be sure to check out some of the great blogs that have made it to the Sweet 16's, including my fantastic competition, Outsports and Kenneth in the 212. And I really can't forget to mention the great blog that the hosts of March Gayness, Matt and Robbie, run.

You got it. But if you win the whole shabang no "You like me! You really like me!" speeches. lol
Snarf | 2011-05-09 21:51

OK, I'm picturing you ripping off your shirt and running around. Of course, I don't know what you look like, so I'll picture Nick Beyeler. Mmmmm, that's very nice.
Sam | 2011-05-09 21:51

In celebration of your "showing" perhaps you will slap yourself for the benefit of your fan club. Let us see what you're made of!

OK Rob. I voted for you! :-)

Slap! - Zachary Quinto
Steve wrote - and was kind enough to send along pictures - to request that I Slap one of the current stars of Heroes, Zachary Quinto.

The shirtless pics of Zachary that you'll see after the jump are from his brief run as Tori Spelling's gay friend in So noTORIous. And the guy with him in the sauna is, as far as I can tell, Chris W. King, who appears to be fully worthy of a Slap himself.

I haven't ever seen Heroes, but I keep hearing that it's one of the best shows on TV. And I'm kinda sorry I missed So noTORIous if it had hot sweaty scenes like that on a regular basis.

As for Zachary himself, I'm kinda torn. He's got a kind of adorkability, but he doesn't do that much for me. It could be the comparison I'm making between him and Chris King, but he's just not turning my crank.

More Zachary Quinto

Definately NOT slap worther material!!
Obviously just an off day for the slap.
william | 2011-05-09 21:51

The other guy on 'So NoTORIous,' James Carpinello, was absolutely beautiful. He played Tori's straight male friend. I would like to see more of him. Showed his bare chest only briefly on the show but it was very nice.
Neil | 2011-05-09 21:51

Zachary is FINE! I'm a sucker for tall, dark-haired guys with masculine voices.

Oh, and PLEASE SLAP Chris W. King! He reminds me a little of Sean William Scott and Andy Roddick, except he has a more muscular body and doesn't have a receding hairline.
Ran85 | 2011-05-09 21:51

YUM! I scoped him out on Tori's bad show, but fell in lust. Thanks for the pics! I've seen him guest-star on a couple other shows, but can't remember which. You should also research and SLAP the hottie that is with him in the sauna!

Vince's take on Idol
Here, once again, is Vince's take on last night's American Idol. I hope he's wrong about Stephanie...


If this was her best performance, it's not saying much. I found it OK. She was having fun, but it proves my point that this song was like something that could be performed on Broadway, like Hairspray. All to say that she is very good with that genre and shaking her boobs too.

CHRIS RICHARDSON - Don't Let The Sun Get You Cryin'
He just made getting a broken heart a much easier thing to go through. That was a great performance.

STEPHANIE EDWARDS - You Don't Have To Say You Love Me
I expected more from her tonight and I didn't get it. It wasn't a passionate performance and it felt like she was desperately trying to remember the words and follow the arrangements.

BLAKE LEWIS - Time of the Season
Tonight he blended JT's dance moves with Michael Buble's voice and added his own charm that could knock just about anyone's pants off, even if they are plaid.

LAKISHA JONES - Diamonds are Forever
This girl shines and sparkles like a diamond. Although it wasn't her best performance, she still sounded and looked like a million bucks.

PHIL STACEY - Tobacco Road
The impression I get with this guy is a Michael Bolton type trying to imitate Chris Daughtry from last season. He can sing but his looks and dance moves doesn't scream star, but more Bar Band.

JORDIN SPARKS - I Who Have Nothing
Au contraire, she who does have something. Wow! She is turning out to be the Kelly Clarkson of this season. She has got so much potential and I don't think we've seen anything yet.

It's funny... I had the same reaction as the little girl in the crowd who was crying, only I'm sure that we were both crying for totally different reasons. I just want to cry some tears of joy on results night when he finally gets kicked out. On the positive side, he can always borrow clothes from that little girl in the crowd. They seem to be the same size and have the same taste.

GINA GLOCKSEN - Paint it Black
She didn't rock out the song, the song rocked her out. I think the music overtook her performance.

CHRIS SLIGH - She's Not There
Good song choice and he did a much better job than last week. I'm also glad to see the glasses back. If he didn't have them this week, I think that walk in the crowd could have given us a totally different performance.

MELINDA DOOLITTLE - As Long As He Needs Me For as long as she needs us, we will be right there voting for her. As usual she gave a great performance and probably the best one of the night.

Sadly, I think Stepahnie Edwards will be getting the boot after tonight.


Random hottie! - Paul
I haven't done a random hottie in a while, and I was surfing around Someone in a Tree today, catching up on my reading, and caught a glimpse of this guy and had to track him down. Holy cow. He leaves me breathless.

And could that ass be more perfect?

Paul, courtesy of

His name is Paul Tornabene or something like that, and YES, he is utterly perfect. Took my breath away, too, the first time I saw him. He's got his own website, too, but as I recall, some of the pictures on it couldn't be saved, but I got some! These are far sexier, however...what a sweet HAIRY ass....oh, and that sexy PIT HAIR!!!!
Mark | 2011-05-09 21:51

...oh, and how could I overlook...the sexiest hair of all...that wonderful bit south of his navel...if only those jeans had been lowered a bit more!
Mark | 2011-05-09 21:51

YOWZA!!!! He can fall asleep on my couch anytime.
Dan | 2011-05-09 21:51

O.M.G!!!! He is stunning!!!! He is perfection!!! Have to find more pictures of this Hottie!!! He literally took my breath away and made my heart hurt at the same time.

And then there were 11...
So far, I'm digging Lulu - she just seems like she'd be fun to hang out with.

Haley Scarnatto
I think Lulu gave Haley good advice in her little instruction clip. And hell, Haley looks great tonight (really, she always does). I'm not sure they could put her on TV if her shorts got any shorter, but that's OK. And except for going up once (I think), it's a pretty engaging performance. Perhaps just a touch indicated, but definitely her best of the competition. And she's definitely cute enough to survive. B+.

Simon: Shrieky? Huh?

Chris Richardson
Interesting advice that Chris is getting here; I always worry about his voice, and that seems to be what Peter thinks the problem is. I'm torn about Chris' performance. It's a very committed performance, and he has a talented voice, but the tone always seems just the slightest bit whiny, and I don't think this song did anything to dispel that. Still, I think that performance will likely be one of the better ones of the evening. A-.

Simon: His best so far? Hmmm. I'm still a fan of "Geek in the Pink", but that's OK.

Chris is still my favorite...

Stephanie Edwards
Oh, this has really started nicely. Is that the band talking, instead of Stephanie singing? I don't think so... And she's really into this performance - nice! She could really start to shine like Melinda and LaKisha if she keeps this up. A couple of those notes sounded a skosh pitchy, but not too bad. B+.

Interesting that the judges think she fell off so substantially. I didn't think so at all.

Blake Edwards
Blake doing The Zombies? Should be interesting. And Peter Noone is an idiot - but Lulu is da bomb. One thing is for sure, Blake always puts a modern spin on what he does. His voice sounds pretty good in this, actually, maybe a bit pitchy. But the whole thing is still pretty interesting. I love the commitment to the act. Overall extremely well done. (I can overlook the small pitch problems.) A.

I loved the arrangement - as the judges said, it really updated a classic 40 year old song.

LaKisha Jones
Yay! We like LaKisha! What? LaKisha doesn't have vast experience singing 60's British pop?? You're kidding! And p.s., I still really like Lulu - she's fantastic!! Oh no! She skipped Lulu's advice. But hell, so far so good. I love the vampy nature of this song, and I love that she's going for it. And god, her voice really brings it home. A-.

Randy: I have to disagree with Randy. Perhaps she held herself back just a bit too much, but I still think she brought it home.

Oh, and it really didn't look like $1,000,000 worth of diamonds. None of them look very big. But whatever...

Phil Stacey
Maybe Peter Noone will give Phil bad advice and he'll get voted off. Hey, a guy can dream. OK, I can tell right away that this performance is gonna bug me. And Phil, if you're gonna pick up the mic stand, at least be a little bit convincing, you just look like a dork. As my husband noted, Chris Daughtry would have killed this song. Maybe I'm just a bit too prejudiced against Phil, but UGH. I suppose it was an OK performance, I can't give it a grade based purely on my personal feelings. B-.

Jordin Sparks
Does she look a little distracted during this performance? Or is it just me? I'm not sure I caught it, but just for a second she looked like she was on another planet. She hasn't sounded bad at all yet, and I'm probably imagining things, but ya know... Other than that little walk about, it was a great performance - and her voice was spectacular, I thought. A/A-.

Sanjaya Malakar
Oh no. Tonight has been fantastic, so far. I hope Sanjaya doesn't fuck it up. I still like him, but oy - what a terrible performer. Let's see if he can do this one. Nope. Do I need to write more? And was that little girl crying because the performance was so bad? Probably. OK, I'm done here. B.

OK. I'm not quite done. I have to give him credit here - he really went for it. I've never seen him so energetic and determined to hit a song out of the park. The vocals were still pretty bad, but it was more fun than he usually is.

Simon: Right on.

Gina Glockson
Hmmm. Reading comments on blogs? Somehow I figure the only contestant that might read this blog is Sanjaya. Anyway, on to Gina. Oh, can I just say again how useful Lulu is - and how worthless Peter is? Yeesh. OK. Gina. I think this is definitely a great song choice for Gina - again it shows off her personal style. But I just didn't care for the performance. B-.

Simon: Again, right on. Moments of torture.

Chris Sligh
Oy. Do we really need to hear Chris Sligh talking about being sexy? And look at that - Peter Noone gave some good advice. Wow! His falsetto gets a little pitchy, but he still has a pretty good voice. And I have to note that as much as I agreed with Peter's advice of communicating the meaning of the lyrics, I don't think Chris is doing it. B.

Melinda Doolittle
Oh boy! Melinda should be able to do great things with this. Wow. Another fantastic performance. Fully committed. Incredible vocal. What more can I say? I think Melinda is clearly the best of the night. A.

Overall, I have to say that tonight was the best night of the competition. Almost everyone was really good tonight. With that said, I think it should be Phil or Gina that goes. Fingers crossed for Phil.

Funnily enough my ex used to hang out with Lulu and her ex husband Maurice Gibb and Barry Gibb in the Sixties. ;-)Just be thankful you don't have to watch American Idol in the UK. We get Tuesday's and Wednesday's together on Friday but we get a wierd version where Cat Deeley (So you think you can dance) interviews the guests and singers after every song. Anyone seen Simon's new UK series on ITV called the X Factor with Sharon Osbourne. Very camp!

Slap! - Ty Pennington
Today's Slap comes courtesy of GerrysDen (I'm really not sure what kind of name that is...), and, I'm almost certain, someone else whose request I can't find. Anyway, Ty Pennington is today's victim.

Ty is best known by nearly everyone as the host of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. I'll confess that I've only watched about 15 minutes total of this show, but he always looked pretty cute to me.

Before he really became well known on Extreme Makeover in 2004, Ty was a carpenter on Trading Spaces for 4 years. He also has had a few episodes on Hollywood Squares and also played Wilbur Wright in The Adventures of Ociee Nash. And he recently had a cameo in the new film with John Travolta et al., Wild Hogs.

I used to date a guy that looked like him...only dark hair, and bit heavier. Damn I miss him. Great slap
KellersTattoo | 2011-05-09 21:51

Dave83201 | 2011-05-09 21:51

The Round of 32!
Wow, somehow I managed to beat OhLaLa Paris in the first round of March Gayness, so thanks to everyone who voted!! [Cue me ripping off my jersey and running around the court shirtless...]

But somehow I missed the fact that the next round of matchups has started, and I'm up against another top seed, Made in Brazil. So please go vote! I need some more support!

And, of course, it's a great way to see some of the best gay blogs out there, including some of my favorites like Scott-o-Rama, my current competition Made in Brazil, Kip Esquire and the big boys on the block like Towleroad and Andrew Sullivan.

So go vote!

Snarf | 2011-05-09 21:51

I've been enjoying your sight every day for the last couple of months and I am voting for you. You're right that March Gayness is a great source for finding other outstanding gay blogs. After reviewing a number of the others, I am happy to say that yours holds up well against the competition.

Slap! - Derrick Hayes
Today's Slap is the absolutely stunning Aussie model Derrick Hayes. He has, among other things, been featured in DNA Magazine and done work for Dolce & Gabbana and Calvin Klein. I don't know much more, but when he looks like this, what do you need to know? Just enjoy!

Slap! - David Paisley
OK, this is gonna have to be a quickie Slap, because I'm racing out the door to meet my family and go skiing. And since I didn't have time to go hunt down any pics, I had to go through my picture archives and see who I'd already done some research on. And the first one I came across was UK actor David Paisley. To further strengthen his hand, we haven't really had a good twink here in a few days at least.

Best of all, there were a bunch of pics of him smooching another guy. Nice!

So who can fill in for me and tell us what David's done of note?

More David Paisley

Why have I seen nothing of this guy here in the States? Combine that face and bod with a British accent, and it might stupefy a simple Yank like me. King George could have retaken the Colonies by sending over just a few Brit-boys like him. Oh, to be putty in those hands!
Dave83201 | 2011-05-09 21:51

Not sure what you mean by a British accent, but David Paisley is Scottish through and through, with accent to match. Best remembered here for his angst-ridden gay teenager in Tinseltown, where he had a hot affair with a gay policeman - some of the slaps are from this series.
Not sure what he's up to these days...
Aidan - UK | 2011-05-09 21:51

Hi David, is an out gay guy, scottish appeared on BBC Tv Tinsel excellent show and Holby City..ain't been on our screens for ages though, he is hot!!

Slap! - Kyan Douglas
As Dale noted in my Slap of Will Fennel, since I was Slapping the Aussie version of Kyan Douglas, I really should Slap Kyan Douglas. And since he was by far my favorite of the Fab 5, I wholeheartedly agree. So here he is, Kyan Douglas.

As I said, Kyan is (was?) by far my favorite of the Queer Eye guys. I don't watch the show much any more. But he was by far the sexiest to my mind. Just the right amount of chest hair and that gorgeous body. And he was usually the only one who'd take his shirt off.

Unfortunately, there aren't, as far as I can tell, a lot of good pics of Kyan out there on the web. I was able to find a video of him with his shirt off, so I got some very low quality screen caps, but they're better than nothing! Enjoy!!

More Kyan Douglas

Kyan was the main reason I watched QE, love his smile, and so cuddle-able too.
Dan | 2011-05-09 21:51

I liked all of the QE guys. Carson has an unparalleled intelligence and fast wit (plus he's a hoot to watch), and I thought the designer and food expert had the best advice (i.e. advice that I could actually use in my life). I liked the personal warmth of both the culture guy and of Kyan--but obviously Kyan is the sexiest one. With chest hair. Mmm mmm.

OK, I know I've missed a day or two of Slaps, but don't worry, they'll be back today. I've had family in town and this morning I'm getting a reprieve.

Tom | 2011-05-09 21:51

OK, I'm not 100% clear on the details of this, but it sounds pretty good. From what I can tell, Factory Magazine is putting together the April issue featuring my favorite Slap, Jamie Bamber. And due to something or other, they have decided that if they get enough requests (at least 1000), they're going to print a special issue with Jamie on the cover! And Factory magazine isn't generally available to the public anyway, so this is a double bonus opportunity.

You can find more information here and here.

But to sum up, if you're interested, you just need to send an e-mail to bambernews (at) gmail (dot) com, with your e-mail address, your name and how many copies you want. It appears that the copies will cost approximately $10. And there may be a poster available too.

If you want to see the cover, it's here.

So I've already signed up for a copy. And I know there's at least one other person, somewhere in Brazil who feels the same way I do, so I hope he or she will sign up for an issue. And anyone else who thinks Jamie is just amazing! Hopefully we can get to 1000 requests!

Oh, and, you need to get your request in by 11:59 on Saturday, so hurry!

How did we get so side-tracked on American Idol and loose SIGHT [so to speak :) ] of the beautiful shirtless men we all love to drool over? Still love the sight and all you do Rob!
Chris | 2011-05-09 21:51

Jamie is also in this month's issue of Men's Fitness. Not that many pictures, but still great.
KS | 2011-05-09 21:51

I'm ashamed to say that Vince sent this to me nearly right after the performances this week, but I was so exhausted that I couldn't get them posted. And I have family in town right now, so I wasn't able to post yesterday. But I did want to post Vince's thoughts, just in case someone hasn't seen the results show yet:


Well, it was nice to see Diana Ross sober tonight.

BRANDON ROGERS - Can't Hurry Love
Let the trimming begin!! First, it was Sanjaya's eyebrows, then it was Sundance's goatee and now it's Brandon's chest. His rug seems to have been trimmed this week. As for his performance, that too was trimmed down. I felt he impersonated Smokey Robinson with his performance tonight.

She definitely feels at home on that stage, as she should. She commands the genre and she commands the audience's attention. A star is born! Let's hope her popularity is as strong as her talent.

CHRIS SLIGH - Endless love
He made this classic sound endless. The song was unrecognizable just like himself without those trademark glasses. Hopefully he can "rearrange" himself for next week.

I've got no love for this child and no love for her performance, but she did help put one rumor to rest. Between her looks and her outfit, I guess Lisa Marie Presley and Michael Jackson did have a child together after all.

SANJAYA MALAKAR - Ain't No Mountain High Enough Oh boooyyyy!!! Where do I start? First off, he made Drag Queens look like supermodels tonight. He was competing with Ms. Ross on who had the biggest hair and the dancing, oh God the dancing!! Was he constipated? As for the singing. Where was it? The song and this competition are too big for him, except of course for the hair.

This girl is the Titanic of emotions. She's always drowning in her own tears. She cries better than her singing. She could always go into acting. I see her in soaps. She is going to get the sympathy vote tonight.

PHIL STACEY - I'm Gonna Make You Love Me You know what? He made me love him a little more tonight. He was more confident, less nervous and it showed.

LAKESHA JONES (KIKI) - God Bless the Child God Bless this child for having that voice. Not only was she blessed with talent, but with grace, humility and beautiful curves!! You go girl!!!

BLAKE LEWIS - You Keep Me Hanging On
This guy keeps us hanging on week after week to see his groovy dance moves, his unique vocal performance and his crazy arrangements. He is original and fun. I personally thoought he did a better job than Chris did with the arrangements of the song.

No hangover here! In fact, not even a buzz! Her performance was as potent as a Shirley Temple. She sang well, but it was forgettable.

I totally agree with Simon on this one. The performance wasn't great, but he has such personality and charm that it overshadows it.

JORDIN SPARKS - If We Hold On Together
Her performance reminded me of 2 artists who were introduced to the American public by singing a song from a movie and made me pay attention the first time I heard them, just like Jordin did tonight. Those artists were Christina Aguilera with Reflection from the movie Mulan and Celine Dion with Beauty and the Beast from the movie with the same title. Fantastic!!

Once again, I hope this is the end of the road for Sanjaya.

Is it me or does this Chris guy look high? He ALWAYS looked high or stoned. Does AI do drug testing?
I also hate the fact that a lot of the guys adapt this "street" kind of performance, like they've seen one two many hip hop videos, every year there are a couple of guys that do this. It's annoying. Guys make it your own.
Beyond that, the guys simply suck this year.
But the girls are great!
Randal | 2011-05-09 21:51

Twelve little Idols
I was worried when I saw Brandon talking with Diana Ross, and he sang a bar or two of "You Can't Hurry Love". It was totally uninspired, and that carried over into his performance tonight. I agree with Simon completely - there was nothing to recommend the performance. He has a nice voice, but really, what else is there? B-.

This one should be a show stopper. Seriously, you guys. My mom said she doesn't believe Melinda's whole "Who me?" act, but I think I do - I think she's very truly surprised at being where she is. Here we go. I can already see that this performance is way more committed than Brandon's. This isn't the normal upbeat, fun performance she is so good at, but she really can put it together. And this performance is original, not the warmed over nonsense that Brandon pulled. I think that performance is a winner. A.

Chris Sligh
Wow, Chris is right - he and Diana have the same damn hair. Is that a good thing? It seems like this could be a good song choice for Chris; I think he can deliver it. Let's see. Eep. Just a skosh pitchy at the start. And honestly, the first 10 bars suck: Boring boring boring. He better bring it soon. He's got the pitch back on track, and it seems like he's settling into the performance. But it's a terrible arrangement. Overall, snooze. C+.

[SIDEBAR]Um. Diana, the word is not "pronunciate", it's "pronounce".[/SIDEBAR] Gina's sounding OK after the first few bars. Could she be better, probably; but this is fundamentally a choice of song that suits her. But not a terribly interesting performance - it'll get by, but we need more. B-.

I will say this, Sanjaya seems like a really nice guy. But he is not a good performer. But I do hope he can do more this week than in hist past few tries. So let's see! Oh lord, WTF is with his hair?? Poor thing! He needs a new stylist. But on to the singing, or lack thereof. This is not getting the job done. Indicated. Quiet. Boring. Hell, the background singers are way more interesting. But I'm betting he's with us for another week. Although Simon doesn't need to be quite so rude. I appreciate his honesty, but the rudeness is not necessary. D.

My husband got Haley right - he saw her and said, "Who is this? Have we ever seen her before?" Exactly. She is completely forgettable. She's very cute, but eh? So let's see if she can bring something tonight. Jeez, honey, we need some volume. Oh god, this performance isn't forgettable at all - it's terrible. Yikes, it's completely schizophrenic and icky. Gosh, I don't even know what score to put here. Bad bad bad. Was Simon on Mars for this performance? It wasn't that bad? He's trying to fuck her. D+.

OK, everyone knows that Phil isn't my favorite. I'm not the least bit convinced that he'll do a good job here. So would anyone be offended if I come back for the next person? OK, I'll make this comment: Terrible. D.

As much as I dislike Phil, I like LaKisha. And we know she can bring the performance home, so here we go. Diana's looking forward to this, and so am I. OK, Diana recommended a mic stand, and LaKisha went without - is that a flinch? The good thing, however, is that she was thinking about the performance very carefully, and the fact that she went without the stand is probably very carefully considered. And she has an amazing voice. And Randy makes a good point, her voice is huge, and she's able to really get it out without overdoing it. I think that was a really good performance. A/A-.

Oh boy! This should be a lot of fun. I really hope he brings his beat box skills to this, it could really be a hoot. This is gonna be a tough one, but I think Blake can get it done. His voice doesn't shine as one of the best, but his performances are always more interesting than most. And he definitely made this arrangement his own. It's a tough genre for Blake, but I think it was good. Not outta the park, but certainly good enough to stick around. B+.

She sounds better than I remember recently. She really does have a very talented voice. It didn't seem like the most involved performance to me, but better than most of the other things tonight. She was outsung by LaKisha and Melinda - but so was everyone else. B.

Chris Richardson
YAY! My favorite! I think. We'll see how he does tonight, but I think he's gonna nail it. That was quite a nellie entrance, frankly. But it's all good. And hell - so far so fucking good on this performance! I think he's doing much better with his arrangement than Blake did. I worry about his voice sometimes - it certainly doesn't have Melinda's or LaKisha's power, but he has a good tone. And he is always committed and seems to have a great time on stage. I have to disagree with Randy - he didn't overdo it at all. No way. Paula got it right - he struck just the right balance of old & new. And I can't agree with Simon - I don't think this genre is Chris' strength, but I think he did a nice job. B+.

I really don't have a strong opinion about Jordin. She's really neither here nor there for me. She has a nice enough voice, but again, I'm kinda underwhelmed. B.

You know I have to say I really think that this year is much weaker than other years. To me, nobody is a standout except Melinda and LaKisha. I really like Chris and Blake, but they can't really compete with M&L. It's very clear that Melinda and LaKisha should be in the final two in May -- I'm sure it won't happen, but we'll see!

The word Ms. Ross was attempting to use was "enunciate"- pronounce words clearly. "Annunciate" refers to the proclamation of a coming event as in to Mary by the Angel of the coming of Christ. One may pronounce a word- utter a word in a certain way,pronunciation being the standard way of speaking a word. It's all very confusing anyway, I had to look this up in the Oxford Dictionary. Anyway I thought the whole Simon-Ryan "come out of the closet" tiff will be the lead story on the Net and Entertainment shows.

Dave | 2011-05-09 21:51

After observing all the performances among the girls, Sanjaya is by far the worst.
Dave | 2011-05-09 21:51

All I can hope for is that Sanjaya does not make the top 10. Can you imagine paying to see the AI Tour, and having to hear THAT voice? I have been reading other blogs about AI today, and most hated Blake's performance. I am with you.. I thought it was good. I'm glad Phil isn't your favorite, so you won't hate me when I say this... last night, with those dark circles under his eyes, all I could think of was Uncle Fester.
Tom | 2011-05-09 21:51

Wasn't anyone hooting and hollering over the spat between Simon and Ryan? "Stay out of my closet!" "Well, COME OUT!"
I was waiting for Ryan to say, "Okay."

Slap! - Eric Winter
Towleroad had news this morning - and Snarf was kind enough to alert me too - that former Days of our Lives star Eric Winter had been cast to play Rob Lowe's brother on one of my favorite shows this season, Brothers & Sisters.

You may remember that Rob Lowe is busy playing one of the most liberal fire-breathing conservatives you've ever come across. Not that there aren't conservatives who share his views, just that they're as rare as hen's teeth. Regardless, Rob looks good doing it, and clearly good genes run in his TV family.

[SPOILER]This isn't really a spoiler, but just in case, you know... Anyway, you may remember that Senator Lowe (OK, McCallister...) mentioned that he has a gay brother. Well, presumably this is he. And according to Andy: "Kitty initially mistakes him for being one of the senator's frat brothers. When the truth comes out, she immediately fixes him up with Kevin -- to disastrous results." Sounds good - I can't wait to see this guy kissing Matthew Rhys. Fingers crossed![/SPOILER]

More Eric Winter

Thanks to for lots of the pictures.

Very pretty, yes, but all those pics of him shirtless and I feel no tingle. Nada. Zip. Oh well, I pretty much have always felt that way about Rob Lowe too, so I guess its good casting. To me there's such a thing as too pretty I suppose.
Andy | 2011-05-09 21:51

I haven't even made the jump yet and I'm wondering if you mean Rob Lowe's GAY brother. Do you think this means Jason Lewis will be replaced as Matthew Rhys' lover? Like this family doesn't have a wierd enough dynamic! (Remember the stories of how half the brothers and sisters spent time in the tree house with an unseen blond boy?)
God, I love this show!
Scott | 2011-05-09 21:51

I generally like my men to look like men -- a little fur, at least, required. Not a big fan of the shaved set.

However, those nipples! Big and dark. Could totally suck on those pups.

Slap! - Viggo Mortensen
Today's Slap goes to an actor I can't believe I've overlooked until now. And even more shockingly, I've never, as far as I can tell, received a request for Viggo Mortensen. As I've mentioned before, I don't always manage to keep track of all the requests I get, so if I missed your request for this hottie let me know.

Anyway, Viggo Mortensen is best known for playing Aragorn in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and looking oh-so scruffy and butch doing it...

He was also great as "Weaps" in Crimson Tide, and naked in The Indian Runner.

Some of the pics after the jump are better than others, but Viggo is one of those nearly ideal guys - just the right amount of fur, if he doesn't shave it. Unfortunately, the couple of caps I have with fur are pretty low quality, but you get the idea.

More Viggo Mortensen

I knew him personally, he's a very kind man and better looking than in photo!
Luv his Aragorn very very much as well as Frank in Hidalgo
BamBam | 2011-05-09 21:51

Slap! - William McNamara
Today's Slap goes out to one of my long time favorites, actor William McNamara. I've liked Billy ever since he starred as Billy Wyatt in Stealing Home.

He also starred as a bit of a tortured gay teen with a psychotic family in Doing Time on Maple Drive; as a ski instructor playing Santa Claus in Aspen Extreme; and as a military policeman (I think), who for some reason that I currently can't recall, ends up naked running around somewhere and shows us just a bit of a frontal as he tumbles naked through a window. After the jump.

William seems to work quite a bit, but has never had a really big hit. Normally I'd blame that on him being a shitty actor, but I don't think he is. Then again, I may be focusing too much on how cute he is - I've been known to do that.

William's look is just fantastic - he has that perfect preppy look that I had a crush on throughout high school and college. Mmmmmmmmmmmm.

More William McNamara

Update 3/12/2007:
Richard was kind enough to send along an extra pic of Billy that's really nice, and I just had to pull this from the comments:

Talking about Billy's UFO interest, Dave said:
Personally, I might be convinced to travel 80 billion light years for the promise of a little "probing" with this guy.


After seeing the movie, 300, I'm hoping, and assuming, that you've gotten requests to slap the following...

Rodrigo Santoro
****David Wenham
****Gerard Butler

Please do consider...if you've slapped these hunks of men already, my apologies. But, if you haven't, these guys, especially the last two, are pretty SLAP worthy.

Ding dong! The house is gone!
We sold our last "spare" house yesterday, and spent the last 48 hours or so cleaning out what we wanted to save. The good news is that house is being scraped and re-built, so we got permission to leave behind some trash. Here, then, is what we left behind. Would that we could have left more...

Looking at the top three pictures words like "vacant", "dispensable", and "unwanted" come to mind -- the exact words that come to mind when considering recent Slap Ryan Seacrest! I'm still slightly nauseous.
At least you provided Jonathan Tucker as a kind of yummy palate cleanser.

Slap! - Jonathan Tucker
Today's Slap has to be one of the most requested guys ever. There are probably guys for whom I've received more e-mails, but the ones for Jonathan Tucker - from Mark, Michael, Randal and someone anonymous - seemed to arrive within 15 minutes of each other - my guess is roughly 10 seconds after he appeared soaking wet, clad only in tighty whities, in his current show The Black Donnellys. And hell, I probably missed one or two of the requests.

Honestly, I'd never even heard of The Black Donnellys until I got those requests. But the pics of him in his underwear, washing himself with the hose (after the jump) are amazing. What an incredible body!! But who can tell us anything about The Black Donnellys? What the hell is it even about?

I'd heard of Jonathan before from his role as a gay teen in The Deep End - that's where the pics of him with another guy are from, if I'm not mistaken.

Slap! - Ryan Seacrest
Since we've been talking so much about American Idol lately, I figured we'd take a request from Lloyd who asked that I Slap the host of Idol, Ryan Seacrest.

I have to admit I was torn about ole Ryan here. I definitely think he has a hottie thing going on, but god can he be annoying sometimes. Those little games he plays with Simon just work my last nerve sometimes. But cute won out over annoying (he's not a snotty prick, after all) and I decided to give him a go.

I was especially glad to do it when I found what looks like a genuine full frontal of him walking on a nude beach. Is it genuine? I think so, but I'll admit that I'm no expert. I also found a number of shirtless shots, but they are of widely varying quality due to being captured from various videos that weren't high quality to begin with.

Update 3/11/2007:
Dave said (regarding my pile of trash):

The girls: A la Vince
Vince sent along his comments about Idol again - and he seems to agree with me: Antonella and Haley need to go. Now.


Big difference between the girls and the guys from the very first performance tonight. The girls can really blow and the guys really suck. There's a Porno movie waiting to happen.

Touch down! The girl went long and surpassed the end zone. Fun performance and a little edgy for this Mickey Mouse Club Act.

It was a good performance, but definitely not her best. It seemed like this pussycat was domesticated into a cute kitten when we know she can be a raging tiger.

She's on the wrong reality show. She should be on a show called The Making of a Pop Tart where you're judged on looks, your dance moves and singing would be a plus. The perfect celebrity judge would be Britney Spears.

Not a pop darling, but she can definitely be a Broadway darling. I'm thinking Sweet Charity.

She's giving me the same feeling I had when I first saw and heard Whitney or Mariah perform live, you just felt captivated and you knew that they would be around for a while.

This performance should be a reminder to Whitney Houston of what she once was and what she has the potential to once again be. Whitney should be looking up to this Idol.

Call me when you're off the show. Although this is more her style, I do not like this girl, she just rubs me the wrong way. I will say though that she deserves to be in the top 12...and subsequently voted off after the first night.

She's got Jennifer Holiday's voice, Mary J Blige's moves and Chaka Khan's passion. She is definitely a confident W-O-M-A-N!!

I think and I hope that this is the end of the road for Antonella and Haley.

Ok, can I just ask: Haley over Sabrina? Sanjaya still in? What the hell is America thinking???
Phil | 2011-05-09 21:51

The girls bring it!
Jordin Sparks
Oh god. Football? I guess she's my husband's new favorite woman. But girlfriend - you are NOT Pat Benatar. This strikes me as a bad song choice. She does have an excellent vocal talent, so that's working in her favor. But still. Maybe I just don't like the song? Actually, as I watch, I think she's doing better - I still don't like the song, but she did do a great job.

Sabrina Sloan
Jeez. I'm having trouble understanding the words. And christ this is pitchy. But as TJ noted, she's definitely HOT. And I loved her little vignette pretending to be Katic Couric. Not a very engaging song really, but she certainly showed off her skills. I do think Simon is right - it's too mechanical.

Antonella Boobie Barba
Violin, huh? And she teaches lessons? Hmmm. Oh lord, this is terrible. It's not showing off her voice, or her personality. TJ thinks she's as bad as Sanjaya - I don't think it's nearly so awful, but she really needs to go. That was just boring.

Haley Scarnato
I think the start of the song was pure "hotel performer", as Simon criticized Sabrina. But the second 1/2 is getting better. She's trying to show off her voice, but the song isn't quite supporting that. I think she can probably do better, but that is probably enough to keep her around. Hmm. "No yo." OK, I'll buy that. I don't think it was horrible, as Simon called it, but I think he's right - she's terribly forgettable.

Stephanie Edwards
Now this is a performance. And she always looks so good. And wow what a voice! I think she's really stepped it up this week. She's missed a note or two, I think, but overall a fantastic performance. I think Stephanie is a slam dunk for the top 12. Randy compared her unfavorably to the original artist - I have no ability to do that, so I can't say for sure. Interesting that Simon phrased it as "copycat" - that's definitely a significant weakness.

LaKisha Jones
I'm glad she didn't squeeze herself into some odd looking jeans skirt and bright red top this week - that was tragic. In this outfit you can focus on her, her voice, and her performance. Or, I should say, her VOICE. I think that was a VERY tough song to sing - who can compare favorably to Whitney? But it really was the best of the night so far. LaKisha should be in the top 4 before she has a significant challenge.

Gina Glocksen
I have to confess, Gina is not my favorite girl. And I'm not gonna like this song, but let's see how she does. The whole thing was just too yelly for me. Randy seems to have liked her - I guess my dislike is more about the song itself than Gina. I imagine she's pretty safely into the top 12.

Melinda Doolittle
That was a funny little bit about her OCD. I really like her. And this is gonna be a GOOD performance, I bet. Oh yeah. Homerun, I think. What a fucking incredible voice. And every moment of her performances is always fully involved. I think that performance KILLED LaKisha. And like I said, she seems so nice!!!

Well, I have to say that tonight was MUCH better than last night. The guys just don't stand up well to the girls as a whole.

As for who's going home? It should be Antonella and Haley. Will it? That's a tough call - they're both very attractive and might be able to hang in because of that. As always, check for predictions!

Doug said:
I dont understand this DialIdol can ALL of the guys be predicted to be voted off? It seems last year the site actually MADE predictions...this year its really just a waste of web space...

Doug does make a good point - it's frustrating to see DialIdol predicting that everyone has an equal chance of being booted, but I guess everyone falls within the margin of error. I wonder if the Idol producers changed their phone system this year (added more lines?) to reduce the effectiveness of DialIdol?

Can we just send everyone home except Melinda, Stephanie, and Lakisha? They are the only three who bring it every week.

Slap! - Will Fennell
Well, I really thought Brody Jenner ought to have some competition this month - he's certainly nice to look at, but by all accounts he's a flaming asshole. So Dan wrote to suggest Will Fennell, and I think he's got enough going on to give Brody a run for his money.

Will is apparently the grooming expert (think Kyan Douglas) for the Aussie version of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. He also had a very nice photo shoot in DNA Magazine some time back.

Unfortunately, I can't find an IMDb entry for him, so I don't have much other info, but I can say this - I think he's got a big Nick Beyeler vibe going on, and I think we may have an early front runner for Slap of the Month.

And soon there will be 6!
I have to apologize for not posting my American Idol thoughts last night, but I was completely exhausted. I seem to be burning the candle at both ends lately and it's wearing me out.

With that said, I will say that I really enjoyed Blake's performance, and I thought Chris sounded a bit thready, but overall gave a good performance.

I didn't really care for Sundance's performance - for the same reasons Brian gave. It was just so much screaming in places. And Sanjaya, again, was the weakest of the bunch, but I'm sure he'll hang around. So this week, I'm betting on Phil & Jared to be the losers.

Honestly nobody else even made much of an impression on my exhausted brain.

So, to bail me out, Vince sent along his thoughts that I'm happy to share with everyone:


This guy is a star! Besides being hot, he's talented, funny and stylish. This guy defines the meaning of unique. Great performance! Yah man!

First off, he's got no booty to shake. Secondly, I'd like to take him by the shoulders and shake a personality out of him. Thirdly, his performance was terrible. He's not into the song and I think he can't wait for it to be over. Finally the new look only works for Hilary Duff.

The fat suit must have prevented him from turning in a good performance tonight. I think it was the wrong song choice for him.

With or without the extra 40 pounds, this guy's charm could win anybody over. Although his performance was a little safe tonight, it was a different side of Chris, but always a good one nonetheless.

Yes we do, we really love ya!, despite what the judges think. It was nice to see him sing an uptempo diddy.

I want to celebrate the fact that I think he knocked his performance out of the park. This guy could sing from the phone book and make it sound great.

This guy needs to stop sucking up to the judges and concentrate on getting the public's vote. His performance tonight was all over the place. He started off shaky and shouted the rest of the song.

I think he gave the best performance of the night and he definitely earned my love and respect.

I think Sanjaya definitely needs to go and Phil Stacey as well.

Last night I couldn't hold back a laugh. I imagined Sanjaya spending hours in front of a dressing room mirror, straightening his hair with that big grin on his face. If he ends up safe, maybe he'd help Chris Sligh straighten his hair for next week's show, just for fun.

Dave | 2011-05-09 21:51

I had high hopes for Sundance...too bad he isn't doing that great. As for Jared, he is too cocky without anything to back it up with...I can't stand to watch him perform.
J Man | 2011-05-09 21:51

I agree with J Man.. what is up with Jared? His voice is ok, but his ego is out of this galaxy. Rubbing his hand across his face??? But Blake was good, as always.

Slap! - Brody Jenner
Requests for today's Slap go all the way back to the summer of 2005, when Brody Jenner was starring in The Princes of Malibu, and Brian wrote to request that I Slap both Brody and his brother Brian. Well, obviously I never got around to that, but surfing around I found some pics of a shirtless Brody that are simply amazing. And apparently, Peter and some anonymous commenter noticed the pics too, because they both made requests to see Brody Slapped.

As for the pics, the shirtless ones really are outstanding - except for the fact that he has his name tattooed down the side of his torso. What kind of jackass does that?? I think this guy is probably the very definition of a mimbo. But as the definition implies, he's pretty to look at.

Thanks to Jake's Big Bad Blog for the pics!

He's pretty hot, and pretty too!! I don't know if it's the eyes, but he reminds me of Andrew Firestone.

Slap! - James Roday
Bill wrote a bit ago to request that I Slap James Roday, saying:
He's a cutie on the stupidest show I've seen in years, "Psych".
Well, I can't say that I've seen Psych to comment on its stupidity or lack thereof, but I think I have enough evidence to agree that James Roday is, in fact, a "cutie". I wish I had more pics as evidence, but there are some nice shirtless pics after the jump.

James was also in The Dukes of Hazzard and at least some of the skin shots come from his stint on Miss Match - another show that, frankly, sounds stupid.

James really does look cute, especially with a little bit of scruff, and it looks like he has quite a nice body, even if you can't see all of it. Nevertheless, I'd do him...

How do you sleep?
Reading Boing Boing today, I came across a link to a site called that appears to be one man's solo campaign to encourage the world to sleep naked.
Not only is sleeping naked more comfortable, but it's good for your health too.
If you sleep with a partner, being naked heightens the level of intimacy between you, and you are likely to have sex more often.
Sleeping naked allows your body to relax more immediately, and you are more likely to fall into a deeper sleep more quickly and wake up refreshed.
Hmmm... Interesting thing to operate an entire web site about. But I guess it's no worse than admiring hot guys... Of course, as Cory Doctorow on Boing Boing notes:
I hadn't realized that there were people who chose to sleep otherwise these days, but I guess the sinister forces of Big Pyjamas aren't to be underestimated.
So, since the Slap of the Month voting is all wrapped up, let's have another poll...

What do you wear to sleep?

Nothing - just the way it should be!

Underwear only

Underwear and a t-shirt


Something else - but I don't sleep naked, that's barbaric!

Oh, one more thing...

If you're trying to "cure" your gayness, sleeping naked is simply not an option:
The house rules at Refuge include ... sleeping in "full pajamas (tops and bottoms) or a pair of non-underwear-type shorts and a T-shirt. Nightgowns are not allowed."
Good to know.

Isn't it all about blankets?

I'm with David. Up here in the frozen north, it just isn't possible to sleep while shivering through a winter night. Summertime, though, it's all about sleeping naked.

It starts with pajamas - they ride up and twist and cramp your balls and arm pits!; underwear - Do you sleep in the same ones you wore all day or wear the ones you slept in all night?; that leaves naked. There's nothing like slipping into a cold set of sheets and feeling every nerve in your skin becoming super sensative.
Kyle | 2011-05-09 21:51

I sleep with just a t shirt on. I like to keep my boys free. Even in the winter i just add comforters to keep cossie. But the T keeps my shoulders warm.

February's Slap of the Month - Brandon Volz!
I am pleased to announce the winner of February's Slap of the Month voting, Brandon Volz:

And the runner up is our very own out actor, Chad Allen. And allow me to reiterate here that if you haven't seen Chad in his Donald Strachey movies, you really should:

Honorable mention goes to Shane Keough, from The Real Housewives of Orange County. Remember him? The one whose mom thinks is gay?

Neither one of those 2 is a surprise. Brandon is one of the hottest ever. Does anyone know if he is gay or straight? I was going to watch Gay, Straight or Taken? because he was supposed to be on, but one episode was more than I could stomach.
Tom | 2011-05-09 21:51

We watched Chad Allen's first Donald Strachey mystery, Third Man Out, this weekend. We expected it to be cheesy, but it was excellent--good acting (especially Allen), and one of the best (most realistic)depictions of gay coupledom I've seen.
Mark | 2011-05-09 21:51

i've known brandon for a decade and hes straight and taken -and smokin hot
Tommy Fairgate | 2011-05-09 21:51

Slap! - John Corbett
Lloyd wrote a while back to complain that:
from all the notable hot guys from Sex and the City, you haven't slapped John Corbett that played Aidan Shaw on the show! Though lacking in the hairiness, the guy is absolute perfection, plus a so sweet look on his face! You need to do this for us!
Well, hog tie me and dip me in butter - Lloyd's right! I'm not sure how I missed him, but there you have it. So today's victim is John Corbett, most notably (at least to this crowd, I imagine) of Sex & the City.

He was also in My Big Fat Greek Wedding and got his start in Northern Exposure.

As for John himself, there's always been something appealing about him - he's a skootch too "mushy" to fall within my normal range of attraction, but there's something that gets him through the gate anyway. I think it's the hair, and the slightly scruffy look, and the ultra-casual attitude that I really like, and they cancel out his "mushiness".

More John Corbett

Sexy? Sure, but so... NICE. We're talking sweet tooth, diabetic coma, sugar frosted nice. Then again, any guy who can keep Bo Derick on his arm for as long as he has, must have a little hidden spice.
Dave | 2011-05-09 21:51

PS...His girlfriend Bo Drek, um Derek is an ULTRA-conservative right-winger who hates gays. So I'm told.

Slapdate! - Jamie Bamber
I am very pleased to be able to share these pictures with you. Naomi was kind enough to refer me to these fabulous new pictures of Jamie Bamber. Apparently, they're from a new issue of People? Guess it's time to head to the newsstand.

More Jamie Bamber

Dear god,
Thank you for the invention of towels and hot sexy british men barely wearing them.


And bless Jamie Bamber for repeating his famous towle scene.
Brandon Humphries | 2011-05-09 21:51

I loved him since Hornblower when he acted as Archie Kennedy standy by his "best friend" Ioan Gruffudd.....but he's improving his look and beauty!
So cute & gorgeous & sexy!
Bambie! | 2011-05-09 21:51

Very hot!!! He was recently on Ghost Whisperer, and I thought he was hot there.. but nothing like these. Yum!
Tom | 2011-05-09 21:51

Finally, back to men! Thinking about that obese guy on American Idol early in the morning can really ruin your day.

Gay sci-fi thriller?
Doug from Velvet Candy Entertainment wrote to give me a heads up on their new film, Socket, the first "gay sci-fi thriller". They just released the trailer for the movie:

Looks like fun to me - and I see at least a couple of hotties floating around in there. And as you know, I'm a bit of a sci-fi geek, so this should be right up my alley.

Check out their web site.

Looks most gay movies. And I love sci-fi and being gay.
anonymous | 2011-05-09 21:51

Looks great! Finally a gay movie that's not like anything we've already seen. PS - Love how haters always sign things anonymously.
socket_fan | 2011-05-09 21:51

Sounds like you love being cynical more. What's so terrible about it?
Love to see what kind of great movie you'd make.
yogi bear | 2011-05-09 21:51

Velvet Candy: I think just maybe you're over-reacting to Anonymous' impression of the movie trailer. I thought the trailer made the movie look silly, but I don't typically take the time to post a critical comment. (Specifically, I thought the trailer made it look like electrical prongs magically emerge from people's wrists, and that made me shake my head.) In any event, I hope it's a big hit for the filmmakers.

Pics from my drive...

Nice pics! i really like the top one although I generally don't like the western slopes. The weather boys here showed how the entire state got dumped on. We in Colorado Springs got something I've never seen before, snow with thunder and lightening! Totally freaky. Did you guys get that in Aspen?
Scott | 2011-05-09 21:51

Slap of the Month - February!
Sorry for the delay in getting this posted, but I've been on the road a lot in the past couple of days, including a very long trip around the mountains of Colorado during a snow storm. Yikes. Anyway, here's your cast of characters for February. I think it was a pretty strong month, including new "new Hannibal", Gaspard Ulliel; Jason Lewis, even if he is looking a skosh weathered; Matthew Rhys, Jason's boyfriend on Brothers & Sisters; and some full-frontal action from Michael Pitt. So, who do you think is deserving of the inestimable honor of Slap of the Month?

Brandon Volz

Akshay Kumar

David Tennant

Taylor Kinney

Oliver Hudson

Gaspard Ulliel

Alec Baldwin

Kieron Richardson

Louis Garrel

Michael Pitt

Jonny Wilkinson

Dimitri Yachvili

Jason Lewis

Matthew Rhys

Bear Grylls

Ryk Neethling

Brad Rowe

Shane Keough

Chad Allen

Tom Parker

Nick Stahl

Brad Renfro

Dimitri, Johnny, Ryk... Mmmmm. Sorry guys, this is a better month then often ;-)
John | 2011-05-09 21:51

I'm with the first two. A VERY yuk(!) month. This sure does NOT mean, however, that we don't appreciate all that you do, so Thanks Again.
Chris | 2011-05-09 21:51

I thought it was a GREAT month. Chad Allen, my favorite, Alec Baldwin, that hotter than hot South African swimmer...Outstanding.
sam | 2011-05-09 21:51

Well, I voted for the South African whose name I'm too lazy to look for at the moment, and could easily have chosen Jason Lewis instead. Some months, it's nice not to have too much work to do. Seriously, thanks, Rob, for your efforts and attention.

Slap! - Greg Kinnear
Today's Slap comes courtesy of my husband - we watched Little Miss Sunshine recently, and he kept cooing about Greg Kinnear. As for me, I certainly think Greg is very handsome, but he just doesn't quite do it for me. I'm honestly worried about the reaction that old Greg here is gonna get, so if you like him Speak Up!!

Anyway, as I mentioned above, Greg played Little Miss' father in Little Miss Sunshine. He was also in As Good as it Gets with Jack Nicholson and Helen Hunt, for which he was nominated for an Oscar.

One of my favorite jobs for Greg, though, was as the host of Talk Soup for several years, before Hal Sparks, among others, took over the job.

More Greg Kinnear

Love him! He is the classic good looking guy next door type! And his hairy chest is just right!
anonymous | 2011-05-09 21:51

I agree....he is a great looking guy and a hell of an actor. He has been working out regularly, and looks much better now. He had really great, tan legs in Little Miss Sunshine.
KCChieffan | 2011-05-09 21:51

Coming soon!
Sorry I didn't get February's Slap of the Month posted yesterday, but I'll be getting it up today. Stay tuned!

Slap! - Ryan Gosling
I last Slapped Ryan over two years ago, and I think this hottie has changed enough - and done enough! - to warrant a re-Slap.

This time you probably remember Ryan Gosling from the Oscars telecast, looking very dapper in his tuxedo. He was, of course, nominated for Best Actor in a Supporting Leading Role for his role as a drug-addicted teacher in Half Nelson. There are a couple of blurry shots of Ryan in his tighty whities from Half Nelson after the jump.

Ryan's been in gobs of other things too. If you watched the Oscars, you may have seen a short clip of him in The All New Mickey Mouse Club. Then he had a quick turn as one of the kids on the dreadful Breaker High and spent a couple of years playing Young Hercules. Unfortunately, Hercules never seemed to need to take his shirt off.

He was also in Murder by Numbers with Sandra Bullock and former Slap Michael Pitt, and he was in The Notebook with Rachel McAdams. BTW, the naked (sorry no frontal) pics after the jump are from The Notebook.

He has several more projects currently in the works, and even though he didn't win the Oscar, I'm betting we'll see more of this nominee. I just hope he's comfortable with nudity...

Oh. And doesn't he look hot with that beard??

More Ryan Gosling

Update 3/2/2007: D'oh! Everyone who pointed out in the comments is of course right - Ryan was nominated for Best Actor in a Leading Role. Not sure what I was thinking.

Very hot. Didn't he date Sandra Bullock for awhile?
Tom | 2011-05-09 21:51

Sunday night at the Awards Ryan was the hottest guy in a room filled with hot guys! ... Oh, and by the way, he must be your first Mormon Slap ever.
Dave | 2011-05-09 21:51

Ick! That'll take your chubby away fast. Homely.
