12 Days: Zach Galligan in Gremlins

Many people argue whether movies like Gremlins and Die Hard are actually Christmas movies.  To me, whether Santa appears or not, if it has a any bit of Christmas in it, and you like to watch it over the holidays, it's a Christmas movie.

I remember the first time our family rented Gremlins at the video store.  I was pretty young to really enjoy it and got about quarter through it before getting scared and heading to my room.  Of course I watched and it enjoyed it years later, taking special notice of the adorable face of actor Zach Galligan.

Zach got his start acting professionally in the 1982 ABC After School Special TV Movie, A Very Delicate Matter. That delicate matter, and the subject of Zach's first on screen appearance was.gonorrhea.   Thankfully the subject matter didn't  stall Zach's career from moving along, and from getting cast in two years later in his first feature film, Gremlins.

In addition to Gremlins 2 in 1990, Galligan continued to work steadily both in film and on Television but none of his projects garnered the young actor the attention he received for the original Gremlins.  Galligan has been busy this past year and has five movies coming out next year, not to mention the rumored Gremlins 3, which Galligan has helping to get made. 

Although Galligan appeared in a few straight to video titles with titles that imply there might be a little nudity, (Mortal Passions) it didn't unfortunately occur with Galligan.  Galligan did briefly show his butt in the 1992 flick All Tied Up.  Although only very briefly naked, the bondage scenes were still pretty hot.  Check out some caps on Page 2 HERE:

Cookies & Cream: George by Lights on Studio

Twas the night before Christmas...

Although the 25th gets so much of the attention, for me, the most magical time of the holiday is Christmas Eve. The evening time between sunset and midnight when the shopping, decorating preparing is over. I can't really explain it, but I think most of you know what I mean. There is something in the air, an anticipation maybe, a stillness, a memory of all those sleepless nights awaiting Santa's arrival when we were kids.

When I was kid, Christmas Eve was usually just the immediate family, Chinese food, A Miracle on 34th viewing, opening just one gift, then leaving out cookies and mild for Santa before bed. Now that I'm older, the traditions have had to change. I usually end up working Christmas Eve, so after the hour and a half drive, I've usually missed the Chinese.

The family is now scattered, so Christmas is celebrated multiple times over the week whenever a sibling, aunt, uncle, niece or nephew is able to visit. On Christmas Eve however, no matter who is there, or what is going on,  my father still insists on one tradition, leaving out that glass of milk and a plate with three cookies.

Christmas traditions have also become important on FH.  I have been both fortunate and appreciative to to be able to feature the work of Lights On Studio's Tom Nakielski each December 25th over the last four years.  FH viewers know how much I love holiday themed imagery, but I also especially thrilled when I am able to feature original holiday visuals created for viewers of the site.

Not all models initially jump at the chance to pose in a Santa cape and hat or sit naked on atop a huge Christmas present.  This year however, we are lucky that Tom discovered George Chammas on Facebook. The athlete and  NPC Men’s Physique Competitor fill out his Santa briefs nicely and clearly burns off any cookies he may be tempted with.

Tom had the idea to re-create some Christmas Eve moments, and rented a Santa cape and PJ's from local costume shop.  Although Tom knew George was well built, was still surprised with how muscular he looked when he first took his shirt off at the shoot.  George admits to being a little nervous at the beginning as this was the first time he'd done a nude photo shoot.  George says it helped that Tom had such a clear vision of he wanted to create, and used his imagination to get into character and the spirit of Christmas Eve.

Despite those initial nerves, Tom says George was great and came through with flying colors.  George was pleased with the results as well and would love to again work with Tom on a future project.   I look forward to what future work they may create, George, in addition to his incredible body, has a great face and sexy smile.  George's beautiful eyes also have just enough twinkle to match the magic that is Christmas Eve.
