Favorite Pic of the Day for May 18th

Simply amazing shot by photographer John Hough.

Favorite Birthday Boy and Blast From the Past for May 18th Tom Byrd

Ok, some of you might be saying who is Tom (Thomas) Byrd, but...if you were a tv watching kid in the 80's as I was, you would know who Tom was. Maybe best known for his role on the shortlived 'Boone' I first was introduced to Tom when he did a couple of guest shots on 'The Facts Of Life' Tom played a mentally challenged guy who had a crush on Blair. Tom was so adorable and an early crush. This hunky actor was all over tv in the 80's and 90's from Laverne and Shirley, Alice, Family Ties, St. Elsewhere, Newhart and more! He also had some movie roles in ' Young Guns 2' and 'Twilight Zone the movie'. Tom's last acting role appears to be about 10 years ago on 'Frasier'. Tom also spent some time on tv and movies as a stuntman and animal wrangler. Wonder what this guy is up to these days? Tom is an example of a guy who never really that big role to make him a star, yet made an impression on this writer for many years. Thanks Tom and Happy 49th!

Just Because: Lawrence Dallaglio

Although Lawrence Dallaglio may not look like the usual guy I post, there is something abo ut him that is really sexy! Lawrence is now retired, but he was with the English Rugby Union for many years and was the captain of the English National Team. Rugby superstar, drug scandals, naked pics for chairty, all you want in an athlete.

Favorite Pic Series of The Day: Malachi Marx by Gabriel Goldberg

I love a beautiful man, a beautifulimage, but I have never really gotten much enjoyment from porn or porn sites. But when I was flipping through my issue of DNA #109, I was more than a little excited to be introduced to Randy Blue model Malachi Marx. Malachi and some other guys from Randy Blue were photographed by Gabriel Goldberg for a swimwear shoot and although the magazine was filled with great looking guys the one who left the biggest impact on me was Malachi.

More Malachi.

Favorite Hunk Of The Day: Anthony Brooking

Sometimes you see a photo and just need to know more about the guy. That is what happened when seeing the picture above by Nathan Attenborough. After some research I learned the pic by Nathan was by UK based model Anthony Brooking. Anthony is a model from the UK who though is fairly new to the business, already has begun to build a solid resume and has worked with some of my favorite photographers including Hotsnapz, Mark Leighton and the amazing Leigh Carter. Something about this guy just gets to me, his face is strong yet delicate and his body is amazing. I love how Anthony looks great in almost any setting, on the beach with little or nothing on, in jeans or a suit. His pictures are beautiful and tasteful and I hope we see much more of this beautiful guy in the future. You can learn a bit more about Anthony at his Myspace page HERE:
