A change in the air?

For about the last month or 6 weeks or so, I’ve been going through one of those really flat phases. Just lacking direction, enthusiasm and hope really. Nothing drastically wrong, but just not feeling like I’m heading anywhere. I’ve noticed though, in the last week or so that the tide seems to be turning. Things are coming together. I don’t have a job yet but it’s not stressing me that much, I’m still getting enough work to get me by.

I’ve been working on a “dream job” project. I don’t have it, but I’m going after my dream job, or one of them and what I need to get done isn’t far from being done. I’ve got other ideas for photography and other projects that I want to do. People that just faded from my life have come back into it, another one who hurt me badly has been in touch saying they’d like to apologise and explain what happened if I’ll let them. I’m excited, for the first time in a while.

Jonathan Thurston – Naked for a Cause

Jonathan Thurston is one of the guys right at the top of the tree in NRL Football here in Australia. He won the Dalley M Medal which is the top award and just keeps playing great Rugby League. He’s also part of a history of great Aboriginal sportsmen, especially footballers and… he’s hot.

These shots are by Pedro Virgil for the Naked For a Cause calendar and soon to be released book.

GI Channing

 

So it looks like they are making a movie of GI-Joe starring Channing Tatum. Channing is one very sexy guy and I’ve posted about him a couple of times before, but when I think of GI-Joe, action hero superstar savior of the world, I think of someone a bit beefier. I’m sure he’ll do a great job and he’ll definitely look sexy. Who would you like to see as GI-Joe?

Kylie – All I see

It’s not often you’ll hear me say something I don’t like about Kylie, but this song is my absolute least favourite on the X album. To me it’s like watered down diet Janet Jackson from 12 years ago. Having said that, I think she looks good in the video and having Marco Da Silva standing around with his tatts out looking hot doesn’t exactly hurt the cause.

New pendants from Esculpta

Nikias at Esculpta sent me these images a day or two ago of his new designs. It sounds like his business is starting to take off which is great. He’s a talented (and good looking) guy.

This is my friend, he’s naked.

It seems that all my buddies that I hang out with nude on the beach are all coming together. Over the course of the two nude dinners we’ve had, I think almost all my nude friends have met. In June we have a long weekend and a few of us have decided to go away for the weekend up to the Central/North coast. A nude friend that has just moved to Sydney wants to join us, so 3 of us are having a nude dvd night tomorrow night. All my non-nudie friends think it’s very strange but I think it’s great.

I still don’t get why we can’t get nude in front of our friends who should always be more kind than any stranger.

Teamm8 Champions and a new range

It’s time once again to head over to Teamm8 and vote for your favourite of the four “star players” to see who goes through to be the face of the next round. I can’t decide. Can I have all of them? Vinny and Jason have also both been on the cover of DNA in the past and were both very popular. It’s a tough choice.

Kylie glows in German Vogue

It seems that so far, this is the only shot that has leaked from Kylie’s shoot with German Vogue. She looks beautiful and more natural than the severe wig/haircut thing she’s been sporting lately. A couple of years ago when the Kylie exhibition was in Sydney, there was one wall with a long, long line of different photos of Ms Minogue. It really is amazing how different she can look and how adventurous she is when it comes to collaborating on her look.

Alan Ritchson gets his bodywear out

Here’s part one of the behind the scenes video of Alan Ritchson’s shoot for N2N Bodywear. Alan first gained exposure when he was a contestant in American Idol, then he went on to play Aquaman in Smallville. As long as he looks this good, he is more than welcome to hang around in and out of his undies!

Another actor comes out

Luke McFarlane from Brothers & Sisters has officially come out after much speculation. He chose an interview with Canadas Globe & Mail to end the speculation.

“Though no secret to his family and close friends, Macfarlane has, until now, been guarded about his personal life as a gay man. Over lunch in Los Angeles, where he lives, he initially insists that he has no concerns about his public revelation – but a few seconds later he is shifting nervously in his chair, and concedes that he is ‘terrified.’ … ‘I don’t know what will happen professionally … that is the fear, but I guess I can’t really be concerned about what will happen, because it’s my truth.”

I’m genuinely pleased that more and more actors are coming out and I hope that it shows a growing acceptance and understanding by the wider community. Now we just need to wait and see if these actors are given straight roles or typecast as the gay friend.

My lift on the Y list?

Last night I was enjoying the El Circo experience with one of my other pole dancer colleagues enjoying the shows. One of the acts is a magician who had a cane that he seemingly made float around by itself. After his act his assistant/boyfriend (?) came and cleared his props away but accidentally left the cane propped in the corner. My mate and I were joking about having a look at it when he came back to get it. I joked with him that we were hoping he’d forget it so we could try and figure out how it was done, to which he turned and replied “Write about it on the blog and I’ll tell you how it works”. That just floored me. I do get recognised a little bit by people that read Aussielicious but usually at the nude beach or something that I’ve written about. A couple of my friends joke that I’m famous but if Kathy Griffin is on the D-List, that surely puts me way down on the Y (or why) list.

Would this have fared better?

This is an acoustic version of “All I see”, Kylie’s first single off X in the U.S. The original version for me was just watered down R’n’B lite. This version appears to be from a rehearsal for her upcoming tour. I think it’s a much nicer version, very sweet.

Inspiration…

Next weekend I’m going to a party at a friend’s house. It’s an Absolutely Fabulous fancy dress party. I was going to go as Patsy’s sister Jacks, but realised that Bubble would be much more fun and easy to get an outfit. I still have to find a wig and shoes and a few other bits and pieces but it’s going to be quite a disturbing sight. Here’s a taste of Bubble in action.
