I love 80s Dance Music as much as anyone, but something I enjoy just slightly more than that is looking at actor Alexander Skarsgard in various states of undress. Cut Copy’s new video for their awesome song, “Free Your Mind” satisfies in both of those categories. In this video, Skarsgard plays an enigmatic spiritual leader, based in a beautiful paradise retreat, who’s guiding a group of followers to ‘free their minds’ in various ways. I love that Cut Copy turn out a transcendent groove while actually remembering to do the song. It is even worth enduring Skarsgard’s bad wig to see him flaunt his shirtless, smoking hot body in a pair of tighty whities. “Free Your Mind” is the title song to Cut Copy’s fourth album, due out November 5th, 2013 on Loma Vista/Modular Records. Enjoy!

Update:Andy’s site is now off-line, but you can see what the dolls and their accessories looked like, and maybe re-create them your own, at This Link!
Look at this little Hamster thing eating a grape. How fucking cute is that? Don’t its eyes look just like those black marbles that the eyes of everyone in True Blood’s Bon Temps turn into when MaryAnn works her orgy–inciting mojo on them? Hamster orgy!
With True Blood and Mad Men now running back to back, Sunday night’s TV viewing has just hit an apex of awesomeness not seen since the halcyon days of Six Feet Under and with a Soprano’s chaser! Good times! Is it just me, or are other man lovers out there having a hard time shaking free the mental image of a naked Eric Northman (the blisteringly hot Alexander Skarsgard) cooing and cuddling with SookieStackhouse (Anna Paquin) from last night’s dream sequence? If I were Sookie I’d be all, “Bill Who?” With only three more episodes to go before the end season two, I hope that Eric and Sookie actually get to “do it.” Because that would just be insane.
LOOK! I just found a picture of Eric and Sookie not boning over on Videogum (thanks Gabe!). Now, imagine you can see all of Eric’s Hot and Sexy Body. Insane!
People Magazine just published their annual Sexiest ManAlive issue and, no surprise really, Australian Actor-Hunk, Hugh Jackman is their pick for The Year 2008. Yawn City. I mean, Hugh Jackman is okay, don’t get me wrong. I wouldn’t kick him out of bed for eating crackers. And he’s infinitelight years ahead of last year’s SMA, Matt Damon. But other guys on the list, like Brad Pitt and David Beckham, are just so totally played. That aside, People came a little bit closer to my matching my eclectic taste in men this year, as three of my favorites sexy dudes are also on their list. Check it out!
Have you seen the Tru•Blood marketing campaign yet? The poster above has adorned the side of a bus shelter on Avenue A and 14th Street for about the past month. I was so convinced that this was a real advertisement (I mean, I do live in the East Village, and I actually know a couple of, shall we say, eccentrics who claim to be “Vampires”) that I’ve been asking everyone if they’ve seen this drink in stores.
As it turns out, this is just a bloody clever marketing ploy! The elaborate ad campaign designed to sell a synthetic blood beverage called Tru•Blood was created by none other than HBO as hype for its new TV series True Blood, which, as far as I can tell, is about the day when vampires decide to ‘come out’ of the casket (so to speak) and live normally among us. The Un-Dead can do this apparently thanks to the advent of the True Blood synthetic blood beverage, which will suffice in place of killing off and draining us mortals. Conveniently, the synthetic blood beverage drink comes in 4 flavors: A, B, AB and O. See more about the campaign at Trubeverage.com.
