Favorite Book Of The Day: 'In Their Youth' by Greg Gorman

Rupert Everett

'I think that for an American Male to make a book about male beauty, young male beauty, is still something taboo in this culture'.
Greg Gorman

Kyle MacLachlan

Cannot believe I missed the release of Greg Gorman's latest book 'In Their Youth' last Fall. Would have made a great Christmas gift! Well thanks to Amazon I can get a Winter pick me up as I placed an order Friday.

“I don’t want to do another friggin celebrity book; I mean, I’ve done them (…) I’ve really enjoyed doing male portraiture; and I decided to do a project that expressed my infatuation with male beauty, especially in terms of youth,”
Greg Gorman

I have always loved Gorman's work, and his books. You can order your own at Amazon HERE:

Flashback: Matthew Modine & Michael Schoeffling in 'Vision Quest' 1985

I have been going through my DVD's of late, trying to figure out which ones I want to keep and which ones should be given away or donated. Before many of my DVD's disappear from my reach I though I would start a 'Flashback' series of scenes that interested me.

First up is 1985's 'Vision Quest'. VQ gives us a great performance by Matthew Modine and one of Madonna's first forays into Soundtracks (Crazy For You). You also get a young Forest Whitaker, the always great Linda Fiorentino and the oh so hot Michael Schoeffling (who along with Glee's Puck makes the Mohawk hot). Of course the weigh in scene stands out to many of us, guys standing around, arguing and fighting in undies is always bound to please.

Pic Series Of The Day: Nate By Luis Rafael

Luis Rafael is a photographer/hairstylist and make up artist who graduated with honors from Art Institute of Houston on applied photography in 1991. Luis recently moved back to the Miami FL area to pursue a more aggressive career in the field.

Rafael's work has a strong, distinctive look. When I say strong, I mean not just the image but the models themselves. Rafael shoot his models to look like strong God's and Goddesses who would not take any crap from anyone.

One of my favorite models in Rafael's portfolio was 24 year old Nate F from Florida. Nate is new to modeling and is looking to make enough money to help pay for his education. Nate's #1 passion is sports and he describes himself as a superb athlete. His love of sports has certainly aided in his great body, and his strong face and great grin complete an amazing look.
