some lovely men



I have to confess to a moderately secret passion for The Rock. Thankfully The Rock is dead, and it's become far more respectable to crush on Dwayne Johnson (silly name notwithstanding). I can see that there is a definite trend for large, muscled men in this post - I think it breaks down to the wish to be able to sit one someones knee and feel petite. And, em, mastered, possibly.

But not in the case of the sweet Zach Braff. I love his intelligence and quickness and deep understanding of funny. And Garden State was wonderful. Scrubs is a masterpiece. He's such a cutey too - though I think middle aged Zach is going to look very different to young Zach: you can see him midway in his photo I think. He's going to get fatter of face and plummier of lip, and I don't mean this in any sort of racist way, but he's going to look more and more Jewish. Isn't he starting to look like David Duchovny? Another yumster.






I think this is the picture I wanted to find. I had a black and white poster of Jeff Bridges' character from this film on my wall when I was 17 or so. It's a good film, though depressing, but Jeff was gorgeous in it! In the poster he's bare to the waist, tattooed, long hair, all muscle. It's very posed. I couldn't find it online and thought I'd dig it out and photo it, but it seems I may have thrown it away in a moment of clutter clearing sacrifice. Shite. My giant Disintegration poster was in the tube with it. What was I thinking?? Anyway, a guy I periodically slept with (no good way to phrase that, really) stayed over in my place in town once, and the poster was over the bed (heh). Jay really resembled him, in terms of hair and face and general look, though not so much with the gorgeous bod, not to that extent. 'Who's that, Jo?' he asked, was he worried I'd cut his head out of a photo and stuck it on a poster? 'That's Jeff Bridges, Jay.' I hope he believed me.


And we're back to giant Polynesian style heroes. Photos don't do this guy justice. He's Jason Momoa, but I like to think of him as Ronon Dex from Stargate Atlantis. Were I to meet him, how would I resist just grabbing him by the crotch? He's just porn. Actually I would just cower in shame - he's with the still beautiful Lisa Bonet - clearly her type, eh? (Cough! Lenny Kravitz!) The first video is Jason Momoa, but the second is my real love, his character, Ronon Dex.
Man. Candy.







I'd like to say I had some higher purpose with this post, but no, my motivation is base. Enjoy, ladies.

Hi Jo
Just wanted to make a appearance on your blog and thought what a better post then this one...
Thanks for the advise (keep it coming), It is always nice to hear what other young moms have to say. Oh and thanks for the eye candy too. I'll be back!

Not for me the long-haired man. I don't like it when a fella's hair's longer than mine, anyway. I kinda wish i did, I might get more cool-points or something, but it's hard to control what we're attracted to.

I fought against it once and went out for a few months with a guy that looked like the Angel Gabriel. He was beautiful, very, very beautiful in every way, but I didn't like his hair. That's not why we split up - he was also as wet as a dolphin's doodah, only not as humourous - but I've never gone for another long-haired man since.

Heh heh. Well, all the more long haired, bearded men for me...

or not, I suppose.

When I met my husband he was twentyone, long haired, goateed, mmmm.

Strangely, now he's finally given in to hair loss and shaved his head, he almost looks more like himself again. V liberating...
