Sniff This: Model Jordie Caskey Launches Fragrance Comments (0)

PnV/Fashionably Male has a brand-new Q&A with model Jordie Caskey, whose latest project is his own fragrance: The Evergreen Woodsman. I'm guessing pine is somewhere in the mix?

Caskey says:

I wanted to develop a product that I would be passionate about, and being a Virgo (Earth sign), I find lots of inspiration in forests and nature in general. I also wanted the product to be health-conscious, so I spent a year and a half experimenting and perfecting the recipe. I’m very happy with what I have created. Every ingredient in the fragrance is all-natural, and I’m very proud of that. It’s always intimidating when you present a new creation to the world; especially one that is a first-time endeavor. I’m lucky that modeling allowed me to build a following on social media prior to releasing The Evergreen Woodsman. Having that audience already established took some of the anxiety away, and I’m very happy with the response!

Cher couldn't make hers work, but that was prior to social media—here's hoping Jordie's fragrance leads to the sweet smell of success

Junk Mail: Trend Of Guys Sending Dirty Pics Jump-Starts Underwear Sales Comments (0)

Now that every guy from puberty through deathbed is actively engaged in making public pictures of his privates, a funny thing is happening—they're buying more underwear.

Even though the point is to show what lives inside the underwear, men seem to be opting to wear underwear and let it all hang out. This means they can't be caught wearing schlumpy shorts, leading to a big uptick in sales of skivvies. Via the New York Post:

“As these young guys are sexting more they don’t want to be caught in their grandfather’s underwear,” said Robin Lewis, chief executive of The Robin Report, an industry newsletter.

Stronger sales of men’s underwear also reflect the rise of premium purveyors, including Tommy John, Mack Weldon and 2(X)ist, in an industry that has traditionally been for many men an afterthought.

“The elastic would have to wear out before men would buy new underwear,” said Marshal Cohen, chief industry analyst at NPD Group. “Men’s underwear purchases were driven by replenishment.”

I can honestly say I have never turned my nose up at anything emerging from the front or back of a pair of underwear just because the underwear was so last season. I'm gay, but I'm not that gay.

McCrory Tries To Slither Away From Massive Backlash Against NC Comments (0)

Gov. Pat McCrory (R-North Carolina) is losing re-election in a new poll, and his state has lost the pleasures of porn site XHamster due to its anti-LGBT law.

McCrory tried to address the issue (read: make it go away) with a pathetic video announcement of nothing much.

It's not going away, Gov. McCrory.

Hillary Is Not A Witch: For Liberals Who Think She Should Be Dunked In Water To See If She Floats Comments (0)
 

My *official* Hillary Clinton endorsement. "I see no “revolution” coming in the poll results. Bernie’s support comes...

Posted by Elie Mystal on Friday, April 8, 2016

I think Elie Mystal wrote the best, most mercilessly qualified endorsement of Hillary Clinton possible.

I love Hillary, but recognize her flaws, and boy, does Elie Mystal recognize her flaws. In the context of the endorsement, this paragraph made me laugh in a to-keep-from-crying way:

Hillary’s foreign policy is terrifying. If elected, she will kill people. Many of them will be terrorists and some of them will be criminals, but all of them will be people and she will not let other, non-terrorist people, stand in the way of killing the people she thinks we need to kill. And when she’s not killing people, she will be spying on people in case she needs to kill those people later.

Yeah, that's not exactly rose-colored glasses, unless that's a reflection of the blood on the lenses.

There is also high praise for Bernie:

I agree with Bernie Sanders on almost every policy issue at the macro level. I do, in fact, think the game is rigged for millionaires and billionaires. I like peace. I think his proposed reforms for criminal justice will do more for black and brown people than anything any of the other candidates are suggesting. I think climate change is real, and a real problem.

But Mystal's summary of why Bernie has failed is unflinching:

After many speeches and debates, I see no “revolution” coming in the poll results. Bernie’s support comes from educated white males, young white women, Ta-Nehisi Coates, and the Screen Actors Guild. That’s not a political revolution, that’s the check out line at Whole Foods. 

Most importantly, there is an effort to pick apart the hate some liberals have for Hillary:

She is authentic; she is naturally bad at running for office and that painfully shows through at almost all points. But maybe you would be bad at campaigning too if you had been subjected to over two decades of vicious and often contradictory political attacks.

We’ve forced Hillary Clinton to change her hair, her clothes, and her accent. We’ve criticized her for taking too prominent a role during the Bill Clinton administration, then questioned whether being First “Lady” qualified her to run for office. She’s been the most investigated politician since Richard Nixon, yet has never been found to have committed a crime. People have said she has all of the “Clinton baggage” but none of the “Clinton charisma,” which is odd because the “baggage” is her husband cheating on her and the “charisma” is what allows her philandering husband who perjured himself to be loved, while she’s gets called “untrustworthy.” We told her she was too uncompromising in the 1993 health care debate, and now tell her she comprises too much. She’s the most detail-oriented major party candidate since... Bobby Kennedy? But when she shows her substance, we call her “boring.” We call her a political robot, but when she tries to throw away a meaningless platitude at some old lady’s funeral, we lose our minds.

In conclusion:

Hillary Clinton is not a secret Republican. She’s not a witch. She’s not going to jail. She’s a hawkish left-of-center policy wonk. She believes in incremental change and compromise. She’d rather pass a crappy law that has some positive outcomes than watch a great law die in committee. She believes in government, she thinks it does work and can work.

That’s not particularly inspiring. Bernie is sitting there telling us that if we clap really hard, Tinkerbell will live. Hillary is like, “That bitch is dead, I shot her. It’s time to grow up.”

It's a great piece. Read every bit of it here.
