Styles That Might Not Catch On

I don't care much for the jacket or the belt, although they might look OK on a 13-year-old girl, but where this look really goes off the rails is the glue-on facial jewellery. However, in my never-ending, always-failing attempt to be a more positive person, I'll say this: the tattoo on his pelvis is really quite tasteful (for a tattoo).

Putting a Name to the Face

The last time I featured this cutie I didn't know his name. Now, thanks to the power of the internets (it's a series of tubes, you know) I do. His name is Christopher Fawcett. Yummy. And the reason I thought I should know his name was that I did know his name when I featured him before. So much for never forgetting a pretty face!

Hot and (Gasp!) Over Thirty

Proof, if you needed it, that you can be 33 years old and still completely do-able, Mark Ronson is a brilliant record producer who produced Amy Winehouse's hits Rehab and You Know I'm No Good, as well as recordings by Robbie Williams, Adele, Lily Allen, Christina Aguilera, and others. His album, Version, is pretty much awesome. You know his sister Samantha as Lindsay Lohen's gender-bending girlfriend. Look at how freakin' cute he is! I know, I know, you all think I only go for the teen twinkies, but Mark could produce my album any time!

Fun Activities Day!

Gather ye 'round, boys and girls, because your Auntie Vera has devised some fun activities using these pictures from High School Musical 3: Revenge of the Sith, which was released on video yesterday as I'm sure some of you already know.

Have you taken a good look at the pictures? Good. Let's begin.

Our first activity is so easy that some of you may have started doing it already without even knowing it. Take these pictures out of the context of HSM3 and use them to construct a scenario for a porn flick. Be sure to give the characters good porn names and to give your story an appropriately trashy title. In compliance with US obscenity laws make sure that all your characters are 18 or older!

If that doesn't appeal to you I have another fun and easy activity you might enjoy. It's a little game I like to call "Count Matt Prokop's Ribs." (Seriously kid, eat a cheeseburger.)

Super Crack!

From the Golden Age of Comics comes Crack Comics. The guy in the skimpy costume is known as Black Condor. Maybe someone should have told him that if you're going to wear a dickie you should wear something over it. Or is that a bib?

American Idol Is Back In My Good Graces

Why? Because someone decided to release Von Smith's MySpace self-portrait into the world. Yes, I'm that shallow. A cutie takes his shirt off and I'm ready to forgive the the people who foisted Tatiana Del Toro on an unsuspecting world.

Be My Frickin' Valentine

I hate, loath, despise and abominate Valentine's Day, a faux-holiday perpetrated by the (mostly heteronormative) sex/romance industrial complex in order to sell more crap. Obviously, if I weren't bitter and alone I might feel differently.

Boycott Valentine's Day, I say. Don't buy the cards. Don't buy the flowers. Don't buy the candy- until it's marked down to 75% off. Then go crazy. Tonight, instead of going to some fancy schmancy restaurant with their special twice-the-normal-price menu, stay home and order a pizza. What could be more delightful than Sausage Delight?

Just A Quick Note to Say...

...Top Chef, all is forgiven. American Idol, you are dead to me.
