Lest we forget

Today is ANZAC day here in Australia and New Zealand. It’s like Rememberance Day or Veterans Day. It is the day we remember all our war veterans and it’s the anniversary of the tragic Gallipoli landing in Turkey by Australian troops. Before dawn the Australian’s boats had drifted further than they realised and they stormed a beach that was surrounded by cliffs and hundreds died, picked off by Turkish troops above.

This clip is from an Australian movie made years ago with Mel Gibson.

Happy 100 to DNA

DNA launched 100 months ago and has since, from what I can tell become one of the most successful gay magazines around. Australia had had a few gay magazines in the past but DNA has managed to blast them out of the water.

This issue has some great shots of gay lifesavers, most of them I know through the mardi gras float etc and all are great guys and damn if they don’t look sexy.

Everything old is hot again

aussieBum has released it’s range of “Vintage” undies and they look very tasty indeed, especially on this rugged hot model. I like the video they’ve put together to go with the release. The idea of watching someone totally at ease in their own home is pretty hot but there’s one problem. People getting changed at home don’t put their undies on under a towel. I can’t even understand guys doing that in the gym. I’m going to do some research on who the model is… I’ll be right back!

Cheers to you Woody!

Woody Harrelson has been spending time with Owen Wilson hanging out in Miami Bay.  Apparently Woody has been a shoulder for Owen since his suicide attempt last year. Owen wasn’t as brave as ol’ Woody here, who is looking in fine shape at the age of 46. He says “Every day I swim, I surf, climb coconut trees, play with my kids, eat mangoes. There’s no form to it, which I kind of like” and we applaud his efforts.

After enjoying a dip in Miami Bay, Harrelson climbed out of the Atlantic for a naked work-out on his private dock. Nice work. Surely celebrities expect long-lens camera men to be nearby, so I admire Woody’s lack of modesty!

Mega Muscle Hotties!

 

Don’t you love it when muscle guys land in your lap? Sadly they just landed virtually, not really. The guys from Mega Muscle have beefy model boys for all occasions. This is just a delicious mixed entree to their full buffet.

Prime Minister under gay pressure

KEVIN Rudd has been presented with his first major challenge on gay law reform from within his own party, with ACT Chief Minister Jon Stanhope challenging him to allow gay and lesbian civil unions in the territory.

Mr Stanhope said the Prime Minister – a self-described social conservative – should allow the move, arguing that if Mr Rudd could demand China respect the human rights of Tibetans he should defend the rights of his own citizens at home.

Random nakedness for the day

Wednesday morning here in Sydney has dawned wet and gloomy, again. I’ve heard nasty viscious reports of this being one of our wettest winters in ages and I’m not happy. So I thought I’d start the morning with some random naked guys. My day is going to be long and tedious. The office I’m in at the moment seems to have some kind of magic productivity system that extends the last two hours of the day into at least four.

The photos above show a bunch of things that I think it would be fun to do. Being outdoors naked at night, possibly in places you aren’t supposed to be, at Burning Man, I’ll get there one day and surfing nude which I still haven’t managed to try!

Confidence comes naturally?

Discussions with a friend last night and often with other friends are always a source of surprise. Everyone makes assumptions about people we meet based on how they look, as to how they should act. Last night’s dinner companion surprised me when he told me he gets intimidated in certain situations, which shouldn’t surprise me as other close friends are always chastising me for not being more confident. They perceive me as being good looking and therefore I should be totally confident. The truth is I don’t like going out on the gay scene, not just because it’s shallow a lot of the time, but because I feel like I walk into a club and everyone’s thinking “he’s not all that”.

The one thing I’ve realised and I’m working on is that we all have to find our own source of confidence and contentment. Find it within, not from what other people think is important about you, and run with it!

I’ve always loved this photo. Sure the guy has all the physical reasons to be confident with an amazing body and beautiful face, but I reckon a smile like that comes from a fair way inside.

Workout weird

Last night after a really nice night having a takeaway indian dinner with a new acquaintance that I’d like to see become a good friend, I came home and set my alarm for 5:40am to get up to go to the gym as usual. At some point during the night, when I was feeling like I wasn’t having a restful sleep, I  changed my alarm to 7am thinking my training partner wouldn’t be too annoyed. So when my alarm went of at 5:40am I realised that I had been having some very realistic dreams. Thank god the other one wasn’t true… it was bizarre and disturbing.

Superhero love?

I found this the other day and thought it was pretty funny. It’s another video like the one “How Gay is Top Gun” where they’ve edited footage from Smallville and put romantic music over the top. Enjoy

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.

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?
