NO MORE APRIL = LESS NESSMAN

Before the month ends, I wanted to give you one more scrumptious serving of Simon Nessman.




Then I discovered that Auntie Vera posted some photographs I hadn't seen back in February. It's sadly very typical for me to "discover" a guy two months after everyone else, but then people don't love me for my speed.

If you like Simon, without or without red leather accessories, check them out.

T-SHIRT HELL OF THING TO SAY

Question #40:
How mean is this T-shirt design
from TShirtHell.com?




Pretty damned mean.
Even meaner than the one that said
"Is it still pedophilia if the child is dead?"
because this one is aimed at one specific person.
Why in the TShirtHell would they do this?

SOMETHING IN MY EYES

Question #39:
Whatever happened to
that contest of yours?



Nothing.


I checked my email everyday, but I never got any
thing from someone trying to name all these guys.
So I'll just give you the names.

#1 is my Man of the Month, Simon Nessman. As Kenneth pointed out, the new masthead rather gives that away.

#2 is Maxwell Zagorski, and #4 is Chase Crawford. They are the only ones of the seven who have never been Man of the Month. The others are #3 Kevin Gould, #5 Chad White, #6 Chris Austad, and #7 is, of course, the lovely and talented Jensen Ackles.

Thanks for not playing (he said sarcastically).

THE ONLY THING WE HAVE TO FEARMONGERING

"I was gonna start off with the flu,
but then I thought...

'More people have lost their jobs than have the flu.
More people have been tortured than have the flu.
More people are in danger of losing their homes than have the flu'."

- whichever comedian was guest-hosting
for Ed Schultz last night.


Not to turn a conspiracy-nuttist on you, but many of us noticed that during the presidency of Bush the Lesser every time there was a big news story that was damning to the administration, the six corporations that control most of the news suddenly all began talking about something else. (I'll collect a list of examples and get back to you.)

And it's happened again. After last Thursday's release of memos about the torture of prisoners and the violation of international law (including a treaty practically written by Ronald Reagan himself), more people have begun calling for a real investigation into these matters.

And now that "farm flu" (swine plus other animals) is spreading quickly, the news media can't talk about anything else.

I'm not saying the illness isn't a real threat, and I'm definitely not saying that the flu originated in some secret lab in Cheney's bunker. But I am saying that the heads of the five families... uh, corporations are exploiting this disease to scare people into becoming profit-making news junkies and conveniently distract people from embarrassing certain pro-business politicos who don't want allegations of torture to be investigated.

Don't let yourself be distracted:
protect yourself from the flu
AND
pressure your representatives to have the torture issue investigated.

This is so bizarre. Last night I saw the Pet Shop Boys' video for New York City Boy at Queer The Pitch and decided that I was going to post Domino Dancing on my blog. In fact I was planning on doing it right away, but I got sidetracked and decided to do it today. But then you beat me to it.

Anyway, I love this video. There was also a video of an extended dance remix of Domino Dancing that told the same story with the same actor (or should I say, models) but using completely different footage. I saw it one time, never saw it again, and have been looking for it ever since.

I love it when these weird coincidences happen.
Not the usual kind, when new pictures of some model appear
and every other blog posts them the same day,
but when two people have some really random idea at the same time.

crap, with that new banner. i finally know the first pair of eyes. how could i have been so stupid.

Now I'm curious. Whose eyes did you think they were?

And, for the record, I wish there were some place to put comments
that aren't about a particular entry other than attaching them to a particular entry.

Xersex said...
Very nice video!!!!
P.S.: I'm so curious about next your Man of the Month of MAY...

Thanks for the compliment, but I can't take any credit for that video, of course.

As for the next Man of the Month, you only have to wait 'til Monday.

SWING SET AND MATCH

Question #38:
So, where've you been? Why haven't you been posting regularly?



Vacationing. My diet/exercise plan was such
a great success that I had to take this body
out for a test drive.

Yeah, and if you believe that's a photograph of me, then I really should talk to you about this beachfront property near Phoenix that I'm trying to sell.

No ocean. Just miles of beach in all directions.

The fact is that I was just working. Twelve- to fourteen-hour days. Six days in a row. Yeah, I had time to update on Sunday, but I spent that time sleeping instead.

But I'm back now, and things should be more regular for a long while. And to make up for last week, enjoy Eric Bivoino here.

ADAM AND EVE OF DESTRUCTION

Question #34:
Don't you think it's sad when someone has a name that others make fun of?


You mean like Adam Phebus here?
Yeah, he's gorgeous, and Bruce Weber took
a beautiful photograph of him. But you just know
that when he was at school the other kids
called him all kinds of mean things.

Xersex said...
I think it's a nice name. However I answer YES to your question. But Adam Phebus doesn't seem me a FUNNY name, just a normal name.
That's probably because you're not a mean school boy
who grew up speaking American English,
where calling someone "feeble" or "feeb" is an insult.
But thanks for this and all your other comments.
You're by far my most regular commenter..

KRASIBI MALBCHIK

I don't know how I missed this on Thursday, but Major Models showed some photos of Simon Nessman from the Russian edition of GQ.

Since GQ is abbreviated from Gentleman's Quarterly, shouldn't the Russian edition of the magazine have different name, something more Cyrillic?


Yeah, he looks good with that martini glass,
but I didn't know he was old enough to drink.

STRAIGHT, GAY, OR BI NOCULARS?

Question #33:
Do anything interesting
this weekend?



Just a little housework and some glomming
on the soccer-playing ponyboys next door.

This weekend they were actually old enough that I could watch them without feeling like John Wayne Gacy without the makeup.

While we're on the subject of pedorasts, am I right to be a bit suspicious of a grown man who makes his living photographing young cute guys and then sells those photographs online to whomever wants them?

The photos themselves are pretty innocent, and I can understand selling them to the boys themselves or their families. But for a complete stranger to want a photograph of someone else's 14-year-old son seems rather creepy, and making money by selling those photographs seems decidedly odd.

SNACK BAR FLY

Question #31
What do you like to do
after sex?




Spooning

HORSE STABLE RELATIONSHIP

Question #30:
Just what is a
"ponyboy"?




A guy who's like a pony: strong and healthy,
but too young to ride just yet. The stretched-'til-
he's-out-of-focus ponyboy above
from
Controlling the Transmissions.

A cause de Garcons deserves a visit. On Wednesday, it reminded me of the existence of Christopher Leabu, still one of the most perfect faces I've ever seen. And that same day it showed me again just how pretty a boy Mitch Hewer is.

Earlier in April, the aptly named Just Beautiful Men introduced me to to Nicholas C. who has one of the most beautiful faces I've seen in a long time.

And at Le Gay Blog, I clicked on something to see the A&F commercial featuring college wrestling but right below it I saw a five-minute gay porn video that will probably never become the Scion commercial it was probably intended to be.

Finally, on Wednesday Are You There Blog? It's Me, Stephen showed me the funniest damned thing I've seen in a long time. The grown man in me is depressed that network news has sunk this low, but the guy in me laughed the whole time.

SEMI COLONOSCOPY

Question #28:
How stupid
can some people be?


From The Top 100 April Fool's Day Hoaxes of All Time, this is #5:

San Serriffe
1977: The British newspaper The Guardian published a special seven-page supplement devoted to San Serriffe, a small republic said to consist of several semi-colon-shaped islands located in the Indian Ocean. A series of articles affectionately described the geography and culture of this obscure nation. Its two main islands were named Upper Caisse and Lower Caisse. Its capital was Bodoni, and its leader was General Pica.

The Guardian's phones rang all day as readers sought more information about the idyllic holiday spot. Only a few noticed that everything about the island was named after printer's terminology. The success of this hoax is widely credited with launching the enthusiasm for April Foolery that gripped the British tabloids in subsequent decades.

THE PARTY'S OVER MY HEAD

Question #24:
Hey, man, why the long face?




I guess the magic has worn off: I don't know why I was
getting thousands of hits in a day, but now I'm back
to getting just a couple hundred.

I'll survive, of course. I can remember when getting 200 hits a day seemed like some impossible dream.

And I still think I'd rather have 10 hits a day if all ten of those people left comments.

I'm reminded of the song from the musical {title of show]: "I'd Rather Be Nine People's Favorite Thing Than A Hundred People's Favorite Thing." Well, keep in mind, honey, that your Auntie Vera will always love you.
Thanks for that.
I don't want to seem needy,
but it's nice to hear things like that.
Mr. Rogers was right.

suggestion?
paste your pictures directly from your computer onto the post...that way, with blogger's new blogroll format, people will likely click on the link if they see a picture of a hot guy...but the picture only shows up if you do that
Interesting.
Explain further please.

BABY GOT BACHARACH

Question #23:
Why no mildly amusing question that relates to this song?


Because I can't think of one.

But I've had this song playing on and off in my head for over a week, so I thought using it here might drive it out.

The Fifth Dimension
One Less Bell to Answer
With a pre-Solid Gold Marilyn McCoo singing lead. I don't know what's with the time code.
3 mins 45


Grammatical errors aside, it's still a cool song.

This is the classic version, but there are other versions, of course. During an episode of Solid Gold, McCoo recorded another version recorded with Chuck Mangione that's cool. Barbra Streisand has one where she sings this very artful duet with herself, and Shirley Bassey has a more bitter version that makes the lyrics more biting somehow.

TURKISH DELIGHT FULL

Question #22:
What languages can you speak?


English, what German I remember from what my mother tried to teach me, some Spanish, and remnants of high school French.

I do not, however, understand Turkish, or else
I would know more about this guy I found: Gokhan Keser.


The only thing I've found in English about him said simply
"He is a Turkish god." If anyone knows more, I'd like to hear it.

GALLEY KITCHEN COUNTER

Question #19:
Can that counter be right? Did I really jump from about 400 hits per day to 4,000?!



Some time ago, I promised to look for some old photos
of Chace Crawford, modeling shots he'd done before
graduating high school. But those were lost when
my external hard drive dove from the table to the floor.
But I did find this one, so here it is as a surprise.

Personally, I prefer young Chace on the left there. He has the same mouth and eyes (and those eyebrows...) but his nose seems different, and his hair makes his face look longer. All in all, I think he looked better before he did whatever.
