Favorite Pic of the Day for August 31st


~Check out today's BIRTHDAYS HERE:~

The Bottom Line:

End of the Seasonal Sightings:

'The beach is not always a place, sometimes it’s a feeling.'

Yes, the summer isn't over yet, but the end of August, especially for many of us on East Coast, unofficially means the end of most of our beach days. School starts in a week, and the nights are already (thankfully) getting a little cooler.  I won't go so far as to say fall is in the air, but it is coming up the walk.

I start a folder on my desktop for each of the 4 seasons, for the seasonal sighting images I find.  I'm not quite done with summer yet, but wanted to clear it out before Autumn arrives.  I only got to the beach twice this summer, the first time, in early July, it was still too cold to go in the water.  

I  actually tend to go to the beach more in the winter than the summer.  My dog used to love running on the sand without his leash.  This is much easier in November and December when the beach is deserted.  Everyone 'claims' to love dogs, but understandably, most of us don't like strange dogs running over their blanket with wet sandy paws.   

My dog died a awhile ago, and I'm ready to get another.  I started looking when Covid began last year, but as many of you know, finding a pet then was close to impossible.  It worked out, as I had a fairly busy year between work and family matters and wouldn't have had the time a new pet requires.  Hoping this winter, that might change.  I'm looking to many winter beach days ahead with friends, with family, and hopefully soon, a new pup who enjoys a beach day as much as I do.

More Favorites: Calvin Cobb

I always love finding new images of model Calvin Cobb and have featured some of my favorites  before. (HERE:)  Calvin is so sexy in front of the camera and seems to be pushing the envelope more with new work.  Makes sense then, that Calvin recently started an OnlyFans page.  

I have not joined yet, but plan it soon.  These shots are all favorites that I saved prior to him starting his new page.  Look forward to seeing what envelopes he pushes, and opens next!

Andrea Occhipinti: Actors & SKIN

Andrea Occhipinti was not a great actor, at least not in the few films that I saw, but he is certainly worthy of being on the big screen.  That face, those eyes, that body!   Watching he and Bo Derek 'act' in Bolero was more than cringe worthy, but you can't really put the blame on Andrea.  The story and writing were week.  Had John Derek taken out the dialogue, and just had Andrea and Bo running around naked to an orchestration of the Bolero theme, the movie might have been a hit.

Miranda (1985)

In this erotic comedy, Miranda is the landlady of a small country tavern who is looking for a husband, and tries out a variety of men for size.

Andrea comes off much better in 1985's Miranda.  Maybe in part, because he gets to speak in his native Italian.  Andrea also gets naked, fully naked, unlike Bolero, in the films opening scene.  

If you watch the film, you'll notice a patch of dark hair on the top of Andrea's beautiful butt.  I couldn't decided whether it turned me off, or turned me on.  I was surprised to see it though.  Natural as it may be, if the film had been an American production, he would have been waxed and shaved to save his life.  I have to wonder what discussions took place between the director and producers about whether to keep the dark patch of hair.

I believe Andrea's appearance in Miranda and Bolero mark the actors only on-screen nudity.  Despite his early bad performance reviews, he did continue to get steady work as an actor for the next few decades. Although he still acts occasionally, today, the beautiful actor has moved behind the scenes as a successful film producer and distributer. 

Paparazzi shots

Bolero (1984)

Set in the 1920s, a young woman sets out to lose her virginity. Her mission leads her to a Moroccan sheikh and a Spanish bullfighter.
