Somewhere Out There

I think it was watching An American Tail as a kid and the song 'Somewhere Out There'  that first introduced me to the incredible voice of singer James Ingram.  Growing up, I used to record on VHS, every time James was singing on TV or Awards show.  Through the 90's James often popped up singing Oscar nominated songs on the Academy Awards. 

That old VHS tape is sadly long gone, but yesterday I enjoyed looking, and listening back, via Youtube. Although you can see the original version of the song on Youtube with Linda Ronstadt, the video above with Natalie Cole, although in poor quality, was one of the performances I remember watching over and over. R.I.P James.

Hiram Munoz: Sensual Selfies

'I was always interested in photography, and modeling was a way to start learning about how to take better pictures. I actually like being behind the camera more than being in front of it.'

Earlier this month, I profiled model and photographer Hiram Munoz. (HERE:) When I was choosing images for the piece, I was especially struck by some of Hiram's self portraits. Hiram suggested I check out some of the self portraits he had submitted previously, to Brenton Parry's site Aussielicous. Some of the images were self portraits, I loved the sensuality and depth of emotion Hiram captured in so many of his shots.

I chose some favorites, but unfortunately Hiram no longer had large copies of some of my favorites.  When I contacted Brenton recently about featuring Kyle (previous page) I asked whether he happened to save any of the shots Hiram had submitted. Brenton checked his archives and had indeed saved some of the larger shots and generously sent them on.  Thanks Brenton and thanks again to Hiram for sharing your work with FH!

Earth Angel: Classic Playgirl, January 1995

'André Herbert is grounded in more ways than one...'

The nineties were the main years I bought PLAYGIRL, and I remember distinctly the January 1995 issues with  André Herbert, (pronounced on-DRE, er-bare) the hot blonde who was bangin, in more ways than one. In addition to those blonde bangs, André's tan lines drove me wild!   André went on to appear in future issues, adding the é to his e in his first name and for some reason dropping one of the r's (it became Hebert) in his last.

''When you think of André Herbert, think dirty, but the kind that results from working in rich, fertile soil to grow beautiful plants and flowers. "Ever since I was a child, I've enjoying planing," says the 28 year old blonde. "It's my way of helping to preserve the Earth."
