Ok, my flight to Marine Corps Base in Quantico Virginia was a bit late. The new ABC drama is already a half dozen episodes in, but thanks to TV on Demand, I am going to book a return ticket and catch up. The entire cast cast, both male and female, are amazing, talented and incredibly hot. Lead Priyanka Chopra is not only gorgeous, she is without a doubt, destined for stardom.
As you can see from some of these promotional shots, the show is not shy in promoting it's hunk heavy cast in a series of shirtless shots to have viewers wanting to check out the series. Blonde Graham Rogers is adorable, and the show gets his shirt quickly in the pilot. Graham is joined in the eye candy department by Jake McLaughlin, Tate Ellington, Rick Cosnett as well as Cougar Town's Josh Hopkins. So far I have only seen the pilot, but it pulls you in very quickly and has you wanting more. I look forward to catching up on the weekend and will be sure to share any future memorable moments.
I first featured the work of photographer Matías Coronado from eMCi photo back in December of 21012. (Ondas Electromagnéticas) I loved Matías clear and vibrant imagery and how he blends his engineering, music and film making passions into such outstanding visual creations. In that first piece, the focus was on shadow, depth and light. But in this piece, it is all about the X in the XXX.
When I saw Matías' images of adult star Massimo Piano it was all about the X, especially that baroque X stool he was so sensually straddling. The first image I saw was the photo I chose for pic of the day and I loved how Massimo was sitting, lying and utilizing his incredible body with the Renaissance chair that Matías provided for him.
'The Baroque Period, derived from the Portuguese barroco, or 'oddly shaped pearl'. The term “baroque” has been widely used since the nineteenth century to describe the period in Western European art music from about 1600 to 1750. The Baroque period is often thought of as a period of artistic style that used exaggerated motion and clear, easily interpreted detail to produce drama, tension, exuberance, and grandeur in sculpture, painting, architecture, literature, dance, theater, and music.'
This set of images, shot for the straight forwardly titled FuckerMate, a company Matías previously shot for. Matías blends his signature artistic flair along with the drama and grandeur of the time period by the use of the X stool, along with rich colors, poses and Massiomo's magnificent body and his incredibly beautiful green eyes.
'Massimo can be a shy guy but when he is in front of the cam he is anything but shy. He is outgoing and open minded. He is everything you could ask for. Sexy, a toned beautiful body, pure and sensual. We know this guy will be a huge success. We are proud to present Massimo in his debut porno session.'
It has become a pattern for me to DVR TCM's late night Saturday movies. They often play lesser known, cult loved flims from the 70's and 80's. This week, I watched one I had recorded a few weeks ago, Jonathan Kaplan's 1979 directed 'Over The Edge'. I didn't initially know this was Matt Dillon's motion picture debut but it ended up being an interesting bonus.
The film was a realistic and raw coming of age film focused on the suburban life of a group of teens. Guns, drugs, alcohol and violence are common place and the film culminates in riot at the local junior high school after one their friends is shot by the police. Dillon is part of an ensemble cast, but the artwork, posters and DVD covers took advantage of his success after his subsequent roles the next few years in Little Darlings, My Bodygurard, Tex and The Outsiders.
When I featured Dillon's turn in Little Darlings during my Last Blast of Summer series, (Camp Stud) I was struck by how overtly they sexualized both the character and the actor. Dillon was only 16 during the filming of Little Darlings, and just 15 during the filming of Over The Edge, and it was initially a bit off putting seeing how differently teenagers were depicted on screen during the 70's and early 80's. Although movies continued to sexualized teen age girls way past the 80's, it was much rarer to see this in a male character in the late 80's, 90's and beyond. Dillon's sexually rebellious appeal was a big part of his early success and it was interesting to see his early beginnings in his 1979 film debut.
