Rolling Stone Türkiye

Finally , Rolling Stone Magazine in Turkish! Yes there are too many music magazines in Turkey but they are far from being satisfactory. Rolling Stone Turkiye on the shelves with three different covers as a collectors' issue. We picked the one with Mor ve Otesi(our favorite alternative rock band from Turkey) on the cover. The magazine has exactly the same quality with the US version. Tons of interesting articles , interviews with the bands and breath-taking photos...
Rollingstone01 Well , while writing about photos and Mor ve Otesi , the lead singer of the group : Harun is really hot , he has a nice voice and a certain point of the view to the world we live in. We love their songs ; there are very few bands here that the lyrics and the melody match together perfectly and combining with the high musical levels of the members.Their latest album Buyuk Dusler just hit the market and one of the best selling alt. rock albums ever...

Rafael Navarro Duran : El Toreador

Cenk Gencdis is a 33 year-old photographer from Istanbul. He has several National/International awards in photography. His latest project was Rafael : Matador...He took photos of an 18 year old Catalan boy/Torreador. The photos are breath-taking so the boy is.
"...i go upstairs to room 104 , the door is open.Two young matadors are dressing up for an hour later fight.Rafael's coming out of the shower...fully naked..."OMG sounds really kinky!
Well if you're a frequent reader from a long time you must know how we love everything about Spain , especially about Barcelona. And this boy really rocks.
We'd love to be his "ayudante" *!!
Ayudante is a personal dresser for the matadors who helps for everything(!!) while they're getting dress.

Turkish female photographer Bennu Gerede has reflected the femininity of clothes and drapes on a hot guy with masculine attitude on January issue of DISHY Magazine. Italian hunk model Da Veiga undressed , then dressed up for this session and the result is perfect!

Men in dress...sounds like a queen , but surely not for this guy. We think those fancy dresses expose his masculinity more...
