End of the day

Sorry I’ve been a bit quiet today but I was up early (5:35) to go to the gym before work. I’ve been very slack with the gym the last month or so but now that silks and trapeze are on a break between terms, I’m going to get back into the swing of things.

After work I raced home and got ready to cook dinner for some friends that I just don’t see enough of. We take turns cooking dinner for each other every couple of months. Now I’m about to have a shower and head to bed!

I need a bath!

This guy has performed at the Sydney Festival for the last couple of years and consistently sold out. Now I know why. I’d seen the promo shot of a muscular hot guy in a bath in his jeans with water flying from his hair but hadn’t seen anything more. This is a way to make aerials even sexier and there’s a few moves in this that I want to try with silks!

Subconsciously tripping

 

Do your dreams scare you? enthrall you? inspire you? or just plain baffle you? As a kid I used to have a recurring dream about being chased down my hill by a bad guy. I was never scared because in the dream I used to be able to fly away. Whenever I am getting sick or run down I seem to have really odd dreams and, while I’m not sick I did have very bizarre dreams last night. One of them was a bit disturbing.

I was swimming with a friend at the beach and found a body in the water which as a former lifeguard was quite upsetting. The other dream was just plain weird. I was still away with my family and my father was asleep in two different rooms at the same time.

I’ve never dreamt that I’m stranded in public naked, and frankly that wouldn’t bother me. I’ve never dreamt that I’m a superhero, being cloned or invisible, some of those could be fun.

Degrees of gay?

I’ve just got home from “El Circo” which is the dinner/show night that I’ll hopefully soon be pole dancing at. One of the acts there is a male belly dancer and I have to say, despite me doing pole dancing and aerial silks, it’s one of the gayest things I’ve ever seen. When a man comes out in a lime green lycra ensemble with a silver pleated cape and starts belly dancing it does throw you for a bit of a loop. Especially when you consider that in the middle east, where belly dancing originates from my understanding, he’d probably be hung or stoned to death for being gay in the first place. The guy is very talented and has amazing control of his body, but it’s an odd spectacle to see, but I’m all for challenging ideas and stereotypes.

Pole performance

Last night, we Aussie Pole Boys did a small performance at a Russian Themed dinner at Slide, the nightclub where we do the classes. It was only about 2 minutes and there were 6 of us involved ranging from James, our teacher, down to one of the boys that’s only done about 3 classes.

Our sponsor is aussieBum, so we were all wearing our white “league” swimmers which look pretty sexy, but when we added the white fluffy hat to go with the Russian theme I couldn’t help but think we looked like a troupe of gay smurfs. We don’t have any images or footage of the actual event, we weren’t sure how it would go. We’d only had one rehearsal!

4 minutes to jump on the bandwagon

So I’ve just watched the new video for “4 minutes” and I have to say I really like it. This is what happens when you put two of the best dancers in the Pop industry together, who also happen to be two of the blackest white folk around. No matter how much work she has/hasn’t had done on her face, that bod is pretty killer for someone who’s knocking 50 this year. And JT is just smooth. Sometimes I think he looks hot, others not so much but he’s got style.

Naked for a Cause – Will Zillman

I posted about Will on the old Aussielicious, but felt he was damn worthy of revisiting. Will is the cover boy for the Naked for a Cause calendar and has a butt that, even in jeans, reduced one of my friends to squealing like a girl at the calendar launch. Will also happened to turn 21 on the day of the shoot!

How would you describe yourself in a personals ad? I like getting outdoors, playing golf and football and I don’t mind a laugh and a drink.
What three things do you look for in a partner? Honesty is important in a relationship, she needs to be easy-going like myself and some one who likes to go out and have a good time.
What would you do on your ideal date?Dinner at a nice, romantic Italian restaurant and then catch a movie.
Sex or Football – what’s better? It’s pretty close that one … it’s no fun losing football, but when you win it’s pretty good!
What’s it like getting naked in front of a camera? Doing it for a good cause certainly helped the nerves but we had fun, me and the Raiders boys who did it, and it was a good experience. I was happy to be a part of it, and I hope it earns a lot of money for the charity.
Your favourite part of your body is? My stomach … they did a good job with the pics, we all came up looking pretty ripped!
If you were meal, what would you be?Bacon and eggs, because I like to take it easy on Sunday morning.
Tell me something most people don’t know about you: I’ve always loved the snow and If I didn’t make it with my footy career I was going to go overseas and try my hand at being a ski instructor.
What’s your favourite …
Movie: The Shawshank Redemption
Place: Hawaii
Music: I love my Country Music!
What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done? I hitched a ride on the back of a semi trailer! It was a very, very dumb thing to do.

Gregory Capra in U4Men

Gregory Capra appears to be the French fitness boy du jour. These photos were taken a few months back and have just been published on U4Men, the site for Contemporary Male Culture.

There’s never been any doubt that Gregory is cute, and I have to say the glimpse of his perky li’l butt is nice. I’m guessing Gregory is another one of those guys who has a little more discipline than me with what he eats.

Into the Wild

I’ve just watched Into the Wild on DVD and am kicking myself that I never got around to seeing it on the big screen. Emile Hirsch does an amazing job potraying Christopher McCandless in this true story of Chris’ adventure that sadly leads to his death.

The cinematography is absolutely stunning and Sean Penn has crafted a beautiful movie as director. McCandless obviously had some issues, people don’t just take off into the wild, literally burning money and avoiding the real world if they are totally on an even keel. A very telling moment in the movie is when he tries to start making his way home after over 100 days in the Alaskan wilderness but finds himself trapped by the wild that he initially wanted to experience. He writes in a book, with tears in his eyes, “happiness isn’t real unless shared”.

Beautiful freedom

 

I’ve always been a bit of a water baby and love swimming. I don’t do laps anywhere near often enough but love going for a swim at the beach, night time skinnydips etc. It’s an unusual concept to me, as much as I love swimming, that you can feel so free in the water and glide beautifully weightlessly yet being a human in water, you can’t be totally free. There is kinda a relatively critical need for oxygen. Until we evolve gills, which isn’t looking likely, we are just going to have to keep coming up for air.

Italian delight

Francesco here popped into my inbox by way of Gregory Capra. Where does one buy a chest like that? So not fair. I’m guessing he might have a little more discipline than me in the gym and the kitchen. Oh well.

Stop! Naked Police!

An off duty policeman in New Zealand hasn’t let the fact that he was totally naked stop him from getting his arrest! Check out the full article here. Sadly there doesn’t seem to be any related images. :(

Naked man running

I wonder how many complaints VISA had about this? I saw this recently but a reader sent it to me again and I thought I’d post it. It’s a great advertisement based on that old story of a bachelor party gone wrong.

My day yesterday

 

You know when you were a kid, you always wanted to have a food fight but knew you’d get in too much trouble? Well yesterday I got to have one and at first it was hilarious fun but after a few hours of being caked in chocolate mousse, ice cream, whipped cream, pasta, having a paw-paw mashed in your face etc, it gets a little tiring. This was for the music video we shot yesterday. It got pretty raunchy too and I can’t wait to see the final result. My clothes are in the wash now. Fingers crossed it all comes out. In the photos above, the little girls on the right have about the same coverage, the two in the middle aren’t even trying.
