About A Boy...Nicholas Hoult

Nicholas Hoult was born in Wokingham , Berkshire , UK in 1989. He is best known for the part in About a Boy next to Hugh Grant. Well we are not the huge fans either of that movie or Nicholas. He was an annoying boy in the movie. But today we saw him all grow up and transformed in to a prince charming we completely changed our minds...
We know he's still not legally edible ;) but hey we can wait one more year!As far as we can see from imdb , he's in the showbiz for almost ten years. Also he's modelling in some ads for huge companies such as Piaget.
Also he's on the cover of AXM magazine's June 2006 issue with some hot basketball shots inside. No more words are needed. Here's all of him...enjoy!


Happy Birthday Frank


Army Beckons for Boys of the Bolshoi


It survived the revolution. It shrugged off the Cold War defections of some of its biggest stars. It emerged unscathed from the Soviet repression of the performing arts.Yet Russian ballet today is facing perhaps the biggest threat of its 300-year history thanks to planned government legislation that would force young male dancers into the army for the first time.The move has prompted an unprecedented confrontation between the Kremlin and the country's most famous dance companies, the Bolshoi and the Kirov, who say that the bill will rob them of all their up-and-coming male dancers - forever.

Joe Dallessandro-The Valentino fo the Underground

One of the 10 most beautiful men Scavullo said he ever photographed. The "Little Joe" of Lou Reed's "Walk on the Wild Side." The Valentino of the Underground. The crotch on the Sticky Fingers album cover. The only guy at the party willing to return a punch from Norman Mailer. The actor whose performance made George Cukor understand what it meant to be a drug addict. The beauty wily enough to catch a fainting Tennessee Williams and then get out of the hotel bedroom while the going was good.
He’s more than just a body, though. If that were his only appeal, his legacy would be a footnote. Dallesandro was an innately charismatic and sincere presence on screen. Audiences could project their fantasies onto him. They not only wanted him physically, they wanted to take care of him. Fans wrote letters offering to help him out, naturally assuming that the young man named Joe who played young men named Joe in all his movies—movies that were improvised, no less—had to really be the person they saw up there on the screen.

Ambivalent about his fame as a Warhol Superstar, he cannot escape the power of his allure in those films, nor the power his image has wielded over each succeeding generation to discover him during the last 40 years. As the first openly eroticized male sex symbol of the movies to walk naked across the screen, he not only transcended the convention of being an actor, but he spoke to our fantasies and liberated the male nude as an object of beauty in the cinema. He likes to tell interviewers that all he ever had to do in a Warhol/Morrissey film was show up. He’s right. He’s a natural.

Jan Stary Photography

Taking pictures of people gives me a great opportunity to express my perception of and feelings about them, about their lives. My camera has taught me to perceive the beauty of a human body. I never fully understood what eroticism and erotic really meant until I started looking at nudity through the view-finder of my camera.

Self Artist Jan Stary has a really good point of view to young male. He likes casual boys doing casual stuff(fortunately with less clothes on!)

Nudity itself is not erotic. Nudity is not even beautiful. It is the bundle of light and shadows and angles, a tempting mixture of passion and smiles and innocence, a truly mysterious hodge-podge of innumerable "Elements of Creation" huddled into a split of a second that make nudity erotic and the erotic beautiful.


Happy Birthday Kay

Kay of Story of Jay Kay celebrated his birthday yesterday.Dear K , we wish you a very happy birthday. Hope this year will be full of joy and happiness unlike last year. Remember we're always here(on the other side of the planet) for you...

Hot in da House!

Finally Commander in Chief on Turkish television...After reading lots of stuff from internet about the series , we watched the pilot and then the first episode on TV last week. And not surprisingly we had a crush on President's son Horace(Matt Lanter). Unfortunately we never had such a a first kid in our presidential palace in Turkey. We've first paid attention to him on Bravo's Manhunt. Now he's back with all his charm on TV...
One more thing...we've read about the forthcoming episodes and surprised that we'll able to see Mark-Paul Gosselaar in the series. We were kids while watching Saved by the Bell on TV , and didn't have any ideas why trembling when we saw Zach?!Now it makes sense ;)


Steven Kneff is a boy who's attending college at the University of Michigan, dreaming of becoming an attorney in New York City.We got an e-mail from him about re-launching his weblog! Wannabeleader is about politics and stuff...and just look at him , isn't he hot or what ;)

Our Favorite Colombian!

Oscar is the goalie of Besiktas F.C. for 3 years. He's one of the two Colombian goalkeepers in Turkey(the other one is Mondragon from Galatasaray). He's a big guy with a baby face and a hot body. Also he's the best goal keeper in Turkish Premiere Football League. He began his football career as a midfielder in Colombia. Then became a goalie and won the American Cup with Colombia National Team. He thinks that the best thing about being a goalie is the outfits!! We totally agree , he looks stunning in his yellow outfits and watching him during a game is fun.
He is 35 , can speak English and Italian fluently. 185 cm height and 83 kg s. He's happily married and has a beautiful wife. Hope he stays in Turkey more and we can enjoy his play next year too...

Crustacés et Coquillages (2005)
Poster_2 Synopsis:For summer vacation, Marc (Melki) and Béatrix (Tedeschi) take their two kids to the seaside house of Marc's youth, where their daughter takes up with a biker and their sons roams the beach with his best friend, who is in love with him. Things get steamier when Béatrix's lover Mathieu shows up, and Marc's old flame appears.
Now this is what summer movies should be! As perfect as the best chocolate soufflé, light and airy on your tongue, with a taste that lingers only as long as it's in your mouth. The best part is that once consumed, you will even respect yourself in the morning. And like all good French films, you will suddenly find yourself forgetting that it even has subtitles!

Director : Olivier Ducastel - Jacques Martineau

Screenplay and dialogue : Olivier Ducastel - Jacques Martineau

Cast : Valeria Bruni Tedeschi , Gilbert Merki , Jean-Marc Barr , Jacques Bonaffé

Watch the trailer

Crustacés et Coquillages is a very sweet and funny French coming out , coming in , coming out , Actually we've seen it with Tunic two weeks ago but we were really busy to make a post about it. If you want to have a really good time , we certainly recommend this. The perfect actors with a really nice script. Especially Valeria Bruni Tedeschi (sister of Carla Bruni) was amazing. Also lots of eye candies with Edouard Collin and Romain Torres.

Helmut Berger...Visconti's Widow

A real hunk from the past...Helmut Austrian actor. At the age of 18 , he was a waiter , then he learned Italian and met Luchino Visconti in Rome and three months later they were in a relationship.
Hb_01 Hb_02
By this love relation, Berger became to act in the movies of Visconti, playing the small part at first in"THE WITCHES", then the impressive part in "THE DAMNED", the leading part in "LUDWIG", and then played the important role in "CONVERSATION PEACE".He was said that he was the only one who won a Visconti's favor. Really, Berger's features as "demoniac", "insanity " and "sexual perversion" were what Visconti found in him and realized in the movies.
But there came the time they had to part away. Besides, their last terms were very unfortunate.On 24 July 1972, when Visconti broke down from cerebral thrombosis, Berger stayed in Paris to take the movie of "LES VORACES", And on 17 March 1976 when Visconti died, Berger was on the airplane for Rio where Visconti encouraged him to go.After then Berger's life corrupted, indulged in drug and alcohol, and on 17 March in 1977, the day just one year later of Visconti's death, he tried to suicide by sleeping drug, though he was helped fortunately.His dissolute life with drug and alcohol lasted for a long time, but at last he could stop it. He recovered again his career as an actor, appearing on screen and TV.Helmut Berger believes that the relation with Luchino Visconti over 12years was the life of marriage, so he grieves that he has become widow at 32years old.
Berger thinks his own life in two parts, one is the days with Visconti, and another is the days of "Visconti's widow".
Well as far as we can see from his few movies and surely from these photos he's been hot! And again we are sure about Visconti's mouth taste.
