Video Clip of The Week: Cut Copy, “Free Your Mind”



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!

Alexander Skarsgard: A Moment of Hotness, Please

When does the next season of True Blood start again?

Gail’s List of the Top Ten Sexiest Men of 2010!

Thanks to Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s starring role in the current blockbuster hit, Inception, my Sexiest Men of 2008 list has been wrangling in the site traffic in huge numbers! S-E-O! This reminded me, of course, that I had somehow managed to completely overlook compiling a list for 2009, and I certainly do have a new flock of  sexy guys that I need to talk about. Let’s see what kind of traffic I can draw with this random  mix of hotness.

Alexander Skarsgard
If you enjoy watching TV shows that feature hot guys who get naked just as a matter of course during each episode, then you are probably a fan of HBO’s True Blood. In this modern, gothic soap opera that makes Dark Shadows look like a Jane Austin novel, there is really never a shortage of hot man candy to ogle. Whether you dig Sam Merlotte, the shape-shifting barkeeper; Jason Stackhouse, the brainless, horny mortal; or everyone’s favorite werewolf-with-a-heart-of gold, Alcide, good looking guys are getting naked at a pretty steady clip. HBO! But no one yanks my chain quite like the revenge-seeking vampire Viking prince, Eric Northman, as portrayed by the uber smokin’ Alexander Skarsgard. As they say down south, “Mama like.”

Russell Brand
Funny guys with drug habits are sexy. British comedian/actor Russell Brand may be clean and sober and engaged (three strikes), but I’d still do it just to cross him off my list.

Johnny Weir
Gay, straight, whatever. Figure skating champion Johnny Weir is the most beautiful man on the planet. I could look at him until myheart explodess. Have you seen his Sundance Channel TV series, Be Good Johnny Weir? It’s amazing. I love him

Demetri Martin
If you have not seen Demetri Martin’s brilliant Comedy Centeral show, Important Things with Demetri Martin, then I feel sorry for all of the hilarious sexiness you are missing out on. Demetri also has very sexy hair.

Vincent Kartheiser
Vincent Kartheiser
plays advertising dweeb Pete Campbell on the best show on television,  Mad Men. I’m still not sure after four seasons if I even like his character (he seems terribly insincere to me) but wash all that Brylcreem out of his hair and Vincent Kartheiser, despite the fact that he looks like he is only about 14 years old, is hot stuff.

Noel Fielding
My friend Ivy says “Comedians are the new Rock Stars!” and I don’t disagree. Noel Fielding is one half of the British comedy team, The Mighty Boosh. He makes me insane.

Susur Lee
Two words: Celebrity Chef. A man who can make delicious foods for me at amazing restaurants like Shang and entertain me on Top Chef Masters is the definition of sexy.

Michael T. Weiss
When I was in California last Christmas, I met a woman at my parents’ church who looked exactly like that character Mimi from the Drew Carey Show. After speaking with her for, oh, maybe five minutes I realized that she was completely batshit insane. But I can’t completely regret the torture of being trapped in conversation with her, because she did turn me on to DVDs of the late 90’s TV series, The Pretender, starring Michael T. Weiss, who is just criminally handsome.

Paul Rudd
If Paul Rudd were single and in love with me, he would, I believe, be the perfect man.

Owen Wilson
I can’t help but have a thing for any guy who looks like he’s taken a punch in the face and yet can still manage to make me swoon.

How about you, Dear Readers; who do you think is sexy?

The Vampire’s Assistant: A Film That Truly Sucks

Vampires Assistant

About a hundred million billion years ago, I went to see a Halloween-themed movie called Trick or Treat, which was about a kid who brings a dead rock star back to life by playing one of his records backwards. The film had no “name” actors, minimal special effects and was a huge cheesefest, but compared to a new film I saw in preview last night, elaborately titled Cirque duFreak: The Vampire’s Assistant, it was the greatest piece of cinematic horror known to man.  Like much of the currently hyper-popular Vampire fare (Twilight, True Blood) The Vampire’s Assistant is based on existing material – in this case the popular teen-oriented Cirque duFreak series of novels by Darren Shan (which is also the name of the film’s lead character). I’m all for people getting in the vampire game as long as they’ve got something tasty to bring to an already crowded party. But the main problem with The Vampire’s Assistant – the plot of which revolves around the Vampire head of a traveling freak show, and a naive teenage boy who agrees to become that character’s “half-vampire” assistant in exchange for his best friend’s life – is that it can’t seem to figure out if it wants to be a lightweight “Disney Family Channel” comedy for kids, or a violent, bloodthirsty vampire epic for adults.

This inability to really sink its teeth into a firm identity culminates in a film that’s a perplexing cross between Dracula and Dawson’s Creek. John C. Reilly – who rarely makes a misstep – stars as the Vampire Mr. Crepsley, and the cast includes many recognizable names such as Willem Dafoe, Salma Hayek, Orlando Jones, Patrick Fugit and Jane Krakowksi, who all do their best to work with a weak script and minimal to non-existent direction by Paul Weitz (American Pie). The three teen leads, however, are played by unknowns and I must say, with the exception of Josh Hutcherson, who played Darren’s best friend Steve, the talent pool is ridiculously shallow. Actor Chris Massoglia as Darren, in particular, has all of the onscreen charisma of one of my socks.

Although the audience laughed during quite a few scenes, it felt like the kind of forced or “canned” laughter you’d expect to hear plugged into a TV sitcom. The one line that extracted a serious belly laugh from me was where (Not a Spoiler) Hutcherson’s character Steve bends down over the coffin at Darren’s funeral and whispers, “I hate you so much for leaving me here with these idiots.” Too lame and directionless for adults and too scary/gory for kids, I’m not sure who the target audience is for The Vampire’s Assistant. But I sure will be curious to see if it sinks or swims at the box office opening weekend.

Cirque duFreak: The Vampire’s Assistant Opens Nationwide on Friday October 23rd

Cuteness Alert: Hamster Thing Eating a Grape

Hamster with Grape

The Cuteness

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!

Alexander Skarsgard – That’s Hot

I Heart Eric Northman

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 Sookie Stackhouse (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!

Gail’s List of the Top Ten Sexiest Men of 2008!

Yadda Yadda Yadda, Sexy, Blah Blah Blah

People Magazine just published their annual Sexiest Man Alive 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 infinite light 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!

 

Barack Obama

He is really the sexiest man alive for me right now, in this moment. But I respect his wife too much to go on and on about it.

 

Michael Phelps*

I only watched about 2 seconds of the Olympics, so I didn’t see a ton of footage of Michael Phelps splashing around in a pool or anything. And he is kind of goofy looking. But Phelps’ body has been plastered all over the internet, TV and print ads for the past however many months. Enough for me to figure out that his body is just insane. There is no question: I’d do it.

 

John Hamm*

While Hamm is a bit too traditionally “GQ” for my taste, he’s still mmmm…Delicious.

 

Joseph Gordon Levitt

I actually think he might be gay (he was pretty convincing in The Mysterious Skin), but Joseph Gordon Levitt still does that little thing to me (you know, “that little thing”).
