The Man Oscars

23 05 2008

It has been sometime since I last considered my list. Since it is a popular hit on my blog (people would rather look at pictures of pretty men than read the crap I come out with apparently), I thought I would have another look. I am changing things up though and this time I am picking winners in five different categories. Oh and I will also mention the runners-up so you know how hard it was to make my choice! I have spent WAY too much time on this. Also, I found it really hard to find pics which truly showed off the awesomeness of the guys I chose. I like to think this is because I like them for their 3-D versions more than just their pretty looks. Or it could be because I am one plane ticket away from being a professional stalker.

Best on TV (past):
Michael Vartan as Agent Vaughn (Alias)

For all the wrinkle-brow concern.  For the shoot-em-beat-em holster-wearing goodness.  For coming back from the dead, simply because we demanded it.  And don’t even get me started on when he speaks his mother tongue.

Runners up:

Bradley Cooper as Will Tippin (Alias)
Michael Weatherly as Logan Cale (Dark Angel)
David Boreanaz as Angel (Buffy the Vampire Slayer / Angel)
Bryan Greenberg as Jake Jagielski (One Tree Hill)

Best on TV (present):
John Krasinski as Jim Halpert (The Office, An American Workplace)

Sure, he doesn’t have the Davidoff beach bod of Sawyer or the grufty ruggedness of Jack but the Lost boys lose out to John everytime.  We really mean it when we say sense of humour is important. 

Josh Holloway as Sawyer/James Ford (Lost)
Matthew Fox as Jack Shephard (Lost)
David Boreanaz as Seeley Booth (Bones)
Zachary Levi as Chuck (Chuck)

Best in Music:
Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters)

No-one comes close in this category.  He is ultra-talented, the essence of cool and as I keep telling my husband, I just wish he were our friend.  His voice is yum.

Runners up:

Chris Cornell (Soundgarden / Audioslave)
Justin Timberlake

Best in Film:
Christian Bale

A shameful omission from my previous list and the only Brit in attendance, Christian is hot and deep.  Very talented and also plays a superhero.  I do have a thing for Superheroes.  Don’t tell the feminist inside me.

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson
Josh Lucas
Johnny Depp
Brandon Routh

And in the They Haven’t Made The Cut But They Are Really Rather Charming category:

Joshua Jackson
Matthew Settle
Lee Pace
James Denton
James Tupper
Hugh Jackman (as Wolverine!)
Tom Welling
Karl Urban
Ryan Egghold
Danny Masterson (in That 70s Show – it’s the sideburns!)

And finally, Best in real life (Lifetime Achievement Award):

Ricardo. No Runners- Up.





Wheeee!

Home Alone

According to the email that was sent to me with this clip, these people were always finding water all over their pool deck and furniture every time they came home after being away for a few hours.

They thought the neighborhood kids were waiting for them to leave and then using the pool. However, they could never catch them doing it.  So they set up their video camera and left. This is what they found out!





Getting dressed the normal way can be dull

So naturally, the obvious thing to do is jazz it up a bit. For kicks.





Blunder!

Totally stolen from Jester, this made me laugh today.





How times have changed

3 05 2008

Today is our 5th wedding anniversary.  I can’t believe it has already been five years – time flies when you’re having fun, I suppose!  Here’s a couple of photos from our big day:

You will have to excuse the quality – our wedding was pre-widespread digital photography use!! Can you believe that?!  Our official wedding photos were digital but we weren’t given digital copies, so these are scans of ones taken by friends or captures from our wedding DVD.

My cousin very kindly sent me some marital advice, which as someone about to get married herself, I hope she heeds (click for a larger view):





Happy St George’s Day!

23 04 2008

Officially the most boring of all the saint’s days (well except for St David’s Day I suppose – I KID!), today is St George’s Day.  It is also Shakespeare’s birthday and since he was born just down the road, I will raise a glass (or a cup of tea) to you, Bill.





More songs realised visually

These are all over the place but there were some I hadn’t seen before (thanks Zoë!!).  So following the Rick Astley pie chart:
