If you look closely at the shot of adorable 19 year old Charlie McDermott what do you see. Nah, lol I am sure you see many things. Charlie, who plays the boxer wearing, and usually little else on ABC's 'The Middle' is actually shown in a scene without the annoying ABC logo at the bottom. Once in awhile you might get a few seconds of a scene after a commercial before the logo pops back up.
I HATE these logos. Not just for the obvious reasons. Yes, they are purely a marketing device and yes they are annoying. But for me they are more. They are reality busters. I watch tv, especially dramas to escape into another world. These logs constantly pull me back to the fact I am watching a tv show. I am one of those people who cannot relax if I see hairball or a piece of something on the floor while I am sitting on the couch. If I see something, even off to the side, I have to go throw it in the garbage before I can relax and enjoy the show or movie I am watching. These logs are hairballs to my tv enjoyment! Guess that is why I prefer my tv on DVD.
While I am at it, I have to give a thumbs down to my fellow bloggers who seem to think they should slap their logo on photos they post. Now don't get me wrong, I scan many pictures for this blog, I cap many shots myself. I get frustrated when I see them on other sites without credit.
But...Ultimately I am scanning and capping the work of others. I make it a point to always give proper credit when I can. Sometimes the hardest work in putting together a post on FH is tracking down photo credits. But...I believe it to be important. I had nothing to do with the great shots of Scott Herman below. Yes, Scott sent them to me, yes they are amazing, but they were taken by the wonderful Michael Tammaro. What right do I have to put a FH hunk logo on them???
The only logo that should be on a photo should be that of the artist. I ask my fellow bloggers to cease adding their own. Just sayin!
The beautiful Ryan Bertroche from Request Models. Such a strong face with those great lips and wonderful nose. Ryan has a blend of the old and the modern in his look. Ryan, who is also an actor was seen in last seasons television adaptation of "Children Of The Corn".
