Grand Central Freeze

I found this video and tried to post it earlier today but it glitched out the blog. How bizarre and cool would it be to come across over 200 people just standing frozen still, as if time had wrinkled, in the middle of Grand Central Station. Very cool!

We love team sports

The standard perception of old that gay men don’t like team sports is changing and why the hell wouldn’t it with team bonding hijinx like this? Team sports are what got me over my prudish shy ways.

I’d always been incredibly self-conscious growing up until I joined the surf club at the age of 23 and started rowing surf boats. There was no way to shower in your speedos after training without it attracting more attention than just getting brave and stripping off. I haven’t looked back since!

Random bits and pieces

What broke my heart today?
Hearing my 5 year old nephew has been in tears the last two days when my sister has dropped him off at school. He’s not enjoying it.

What made me laugh today?
Reading a quote from Calvin & Hobbes “It’s hard to believe in religion when some people aren’t incinerated by lightening.”

What I’m loving?
Trapeze class last night, silks class tonight and  really looking forward to  Mardi Gras rehearsals starting on Thursday night. Especially looking forward to seeing if there are any hotties in the parade.

Red, yellow and pink

The madness is about to begin again and it’s having a good effect. Last year lifesavers took part in the Mardi Gras parade for the first time and it’s set the example we hoped to set. Gay and Lesbian members are signing up in record numbers and here’s hoping they all join us in the parade.

Name your price

I’ve been doing the odd photo shoot for people’s online profile photos and a few days ago I was approached by someone wanting some shots done. I told him how much I charge, which just covers time really. Yesterday morning I had a response from him saying “I know your profile says that photos doesn’t mean sex but if I pay you extra would that be ok?”

I don’t think I’m a fantastic shag in the first place but for god’s sake I’m hardly going to be any good if the only reason I’m doing it is because someone is paying me and I don’t even find them attractive. Despite the fact that the guy clearly can’t comprehend what I’ve written I sent a message back saying I wouldn’t do his shots and I was quite offended. To which he responded that he didn’t mean it like that. How else was I supposed to take it?

Escorts, hookers, prostitutes, hustlers, what ever you call them, they provide a very necessary service, but I’m not one and couldn’t do it. I’ll stick to having sex with people I find attractive for free.

Men walking slowly nearly naked

I don’t know if this show was any good but if it’s like America’s Next Top Model it’s car crash television that’s irresistible. Ok the guys competing are hot but the hottest thing is Tyson Beckford. Even in a shirt, tie and sweater he is absolutely SMOKING hot, but then at the end he generously disrobes for us. Yay.

Mardi Gras art exhibition

Angelo is taking part in a group show as part of this year’s Mardi Gras Festival, at the Tap Gallery from the 12 Feb to 1 March. There will be some great artists involved in the show along with a heap of other stuff to do over the festival so get out there and get some gay culture!

I’m notoriously slack when it comes to this kinda thing, but I’ll be doing my best to get out and about.

A hard day on the slopes

Those of you who can ski or snow board will know that at the end of a long day on the slopes it’s hard enough to get those bloody boots off let alone everything else. So I have to say I admire these guys for doing it in the carpark and having the forethought to bring a camera.

Naked rugby christmas

Most football teams go away for a holiday together or go out for a big night on the town together to celebrate end of season or christmas but this team came up with a very good way to celebrate. A naked rugby match! And don’t we appreciate their efforts. It’s nice to see they weren’t shy about full contact sport just because they were nude!

Nudie Jeans nude man

“B” here took this photo in the Castro in San Francisco on a cold and rainy day from what he’s told me. There was a display of nudie jeans which seems like a perfect place for a public nudity photo to me! Love it.

Apologies and naked snow pic

This morning’s post apologising for my absence yesterday was accidentally deleted. SO, sorry for going missing in action yesterday but it was a strange and long day.

Here is JT who was kind enough to get naked in the snow for us all!

Dammit

OK, so I posted two videos today which seemed to throw the whole blog outta whack and when I deleted them I accidentally deleted the winter challenge post for today.

I’ll try and fix all this up tonight when I get home.

Random hottie of the day

This morning I dropped a friend who is staying with me at Bondi beach to catch up with one of his friends and I took the opportunity to wander around and people (man) watch, a favourite past time. I’m not a huge fan of Bondi, it’s a beautiful beach but the 1km long promenade is seen as a bit of a catwalk by a lot of people wanting to pose, even though a lot of them shouldn’t. There were several however that could, should and thankfully did.

These photos that I hastily snapped on my phone, do not do this guy justice at all. A bit of a pocket rocket at around 5’7″ he was total lean beef. At around 5% body fat, I’m guessing he had about a 28 inch waist and shoulders as wide as he was tall. Oh to have had my real camera with a long lens on it.
