You stuffed yourself over Christmas with every kind of food that would add handles to your perfect body line. Still gravid from Christmas dinner, you piled it on again on Boxing Day. Then you drank yourself stupid on New Year. Now you face the choice of either stuffing your face through Easter, or to start thinking about taking off your shirt when the warm weather will come again shortly after that. So what is it going to be?
A year ago, I was offered an exclusive view into what the guys at North Pole headquarters are up to when going on holidays: Santa Claus Undressed. This year, I have been granted an exclusive view into the family album of Santa Claus. As the North Pole community is made up of only male members, as we know from the history books (female members are the figments of imagination of some weird writers), the pictures are of the adopted sons of Santa Claus and what they are up to.
There is not much reason for me to write about +Tom Daley. He's such a good boy. He never gets into the dirty pages of the tabloids. But he does look good undressed. The less he is wearing, the sexier he appears. So the reason for this article is just because I enjoyed his saucy strip for +BBC Children in Need. Call it a Pudsey Bear strip, if you want.
I know that most of you want to misunderstand me. But then there are sports and there are sports. I am sure bed sport counts for fitness much more than any other, at least it keeps your minds active. You can lose as many calories and use as many or more muscles than with any other sport. I mean, you just have to look at the pictures to see how well it works.
Do you think sport is exciting? I do. Usually for the sport as such, but sometimes for the guys that are competing in it. And some sports I find exciting to compete in. That is one side. And then there are the guys who find their sport extremely exciting like some wrestlers. They find their sport so exciting, in fact, that it shows. And then some.
It's magic. October comes and a new series of Merlin appears on screen. The success of a well known story broken into bite size bits and staffed with over-pretty actors and actresses breeds sequel after sequel. The magic of it is that just about everyone has some idea how the general story runs. Missed an episode? Not that important you'll still be able to follow what is going on based on what you know.
Magic Mike is the latest film showing a lot of male bodies in nothing more than strings and leather - and often less. It is aimed at testosterone hunters, those out for the thrill of undressing in public or for the voyeuristic pleasure of seeing someone do so. The story is supposed to represent that of a male stripper trying to enter a relationship. I took that from the description supplied by Warner Bros. It is not obvious when watching the movie.
If you think +Tom Daley is sexy, then maybe you would like to take a good look at his teammates in Britain's diving team. Preparing for the London 2012 Olympic Games in Australia, they made a funny video. And they managed very well to show off all their muscles and other interesting parts, too.
+Novak Djokovic and +Rafael Nadal played an epic final in Melbourne's +Australian Open to establish the pecking order in men's tennis. In the longest grand slam final ever played, both players had their ups and downs until +Novak Djokovic established who has the longer stick. Beating +Rafael Nadal over five long sets, he defended his title from the previous year.
Australia's +Bernard Tomic was the featured teen boy in +Roger Federer's jubilee match. With 1,000 matches played in the ATP since 1998 when he entered the tennis circus as an excitable teen, Roger may not be the record holder but it is an impressive figure. At the Australian open, Roger was playing the jubilee match against Bernard Tomic, an excitable young teen playing for Australia.
Zac Efron has reinvented himself. Or he has reinvented his body. The slim dancing teen has become Hulk Hogan while we were looking somewhere else. Nothing left of the young boy charm of Troy Bolton, and mothers should think twice to describe him as favorite son-in-law now. He now looks like the perfect sin-in-law for boys and girls (and mums and dads).
The Internet was awash with the cover of People's Magazine showing Taylor Lautner (clothed) and the headline about his coming out. Many fell for it. Those that were caught in the scam sensation were definitely not People's reader. I can't remember it ever appearing on a Saturday as this cover purported to do. And special double issues appear twice a year in summer and at the end of the year; for mid summer it is a bit cold right now, and the end of the year is usually on the other side of New Year's Day. That is at least how I understand it.
+The Wanted are one of Britain's successful boy bands with a handful of candy twinks appealing to girls and gays alike. The five singing boys are Max George (Masimilian Alberto George), Nathan Sykes (Nathan James Sykes), Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness (James McGuiness), and Tom Parker (Thomas Anthony Parker).
I for one think an actor is an actor. If he is a good actor, then watching him play is fun, if he is a bad actor, well then it is definitely no fun. Bad actors don't get better just because they are good looking or sexy. But seemingly, there are people who think that if an actor is too good looking then his acting becomes worse. Someone understand this as I don't.
It is telling that Santa Claus and his community of elves have always been a male only club in American folklore until but recently. The invention of purely fictitious female characters doesn't change the reality of the real Santa Claus, though. I have been invited to take a view of what is going on behind the scene at the residence of the most famous person of today.
+Strictly Come Dancing has been a favorite to watch with the gay community for a long time running. The addition of Harry Judd to this year's contest has peaked any previous adulation for it, though. Harry Judd? Maybe I should say the drummer of +McFly to jog your memory. If you saw +McFly in years past, you would remember him as the runt of the litter, but an excellent drummer. He has matured into a most delicious hunk showing all the right moves.
Swedish professional soccer player Anton Hysén has declared himself to be gay in March this year. The news was met with varying degrees of shocked incredulity. Media all over Europe made a pilgrimage to Sweden to interview him. Organisations of all kinds and denominations tagged the hero label to his (admittedly very attractive) person. The only thing I find incredible about this story is that it was worth mentioning at all not to say the vast media interest. It just goes to show that soccer has a long way to go to get free of all kinds of prejudice.
When writing a blog about pretty boys, the +Twilight saga has to be part of the deal. There are just too many shirtless teens running around in various sequences to ignore it. And I heard that some girls like it, too. But that might be only rumor. After all, cute boys usually are gay or bisexual, the heterosexual kind is called good looking.
