Favorite Pic of the Day for December 15th




Hey Blog readers, I will still be posting every day this week, but have some friends staying with me til Saturday, so might just be the pic of the day and birthdays til then, more if I have time. Will get back to normal on the weekend.

Favorite Birthday Boy for December 15th Don Johnson



For some reason, I never got into Miami Vice. Maybe because I was still a kid when it aired and not allowed to watch it. Maybe because my parents were watching Dallas on another network, and I was forced to watch Dallas if I was home, and then grew to enjoy it. I did however always have a major crush on Don Johnson, especially the young Don Johnson. Now don't get me wrong, Don is still a great looking guy, but when in his late teens through this late 30's, Don had a look, I cannot explain it, his face, his body something that when I saw early pics of him drove me wild. Happy 59th Don!!!

'Fortune and Men's Eyes:

In 1969, a 19 year old Don Johnson starred on stage in the LA production of "Fortune and Men's Eyes", a drama exploring homosexuality behind bars. Quite a subject matter for 1969. The play was directed by actor Sal Mineo who also starred along side Don. The following are some pics from the Play.

One of my favorites from Big Brother, Will Wikle turns 30 today. Although I did not enjoy 'Another Gay Sequel' much, Will certainly was a lot of fun in it.








Stuart Townsend is more than just a 'boyfriend' Stuart is an amazing actor and a talent filmaker who I hoped pops out from behind the glitter of his girlfriends dress. He deserves it! Stuart turns 36 today.
