I'm in love with the "Trunk Show" spread by Doug Inglish for Details (April 2014). Beautiful merchandise. Nice swimwear, too.

Boy Culture Turns 8: My 100 Favorite Posts! Comments (0)

BoyCultureBlogYou need a little (Boy) Culture!

StripperIt blows my mind to realize that Boy Culture is now eight years old. I can still remember the joy I felt when I figured out how to post, how to upload an image and how to embed a video. I remember every time a post blew up, bringing in hits and new viewers. I remember the longtime commenters, the trolls, the spam and the never-ending (and validating!) pitches and free tickets and photographers' snaps of half- or all-naked male models. 

RuPaul-Drag-RaceShooting for my blog has never been a drag.

Cone-boyI've used Boy Culture to express myself, to help express others and to connect to people internationally.

I've also used it to show off my humor (both high and low), to flaunt my obsessions, to reality-test my sexual diversions and perversions, to laud the art I love, to lash out against the enemies of gay people and to broadcast my admiration for Madonna.

I want to thank you all for having read this blog over the years. It's a very hard thing to maintain, and it will not be maintained forever. But each time I get some positive (or even just meaningful) feedback, each time my posts are shared on social media, each time something I've written elicits a response, it keeps me going that much longer.

Madonna-stepmother-Joan-MDNAMadonna's stepmother was not impressed.

Thank you. Please enjoy my 100 favorite posts, please let me know if you're reading any old ones for the first time and are liking them and, most of all, please share this entire post far and wide to help get my work out there.

TOTALLY RANDOM LISTS (2011—2013)

I've gotten way into lists. Way. You'll find more of my lists higher up on, uh, this particular list. But the ones that are just completely random go here because I worked my ass off on them, because I love them and because—judging from Quantcast data—you like 'em, too.

TRUNZO IS DUNZO (2007)

Star Magazine implying gay people aren't quite right? Not normal! This took off on several blogs and GLAAD got an apology from Trunzo over it. Some people think it's being "oversensitive," but Jesus...how much clearer is "Man to man" with a huge "NOT" (NORMAL) stamped over it?

Kiss He, Kate Comments (0)

Kate-McKinnon-Details
Hysterical out SNL trouper Kate McKinnon pops up in Details (September 2013), momentarily remindng me that the mag used to be as gay as a goose before it became more like a flaming closet case. 

She talks about her gonzo kiss with Louis C.K. from last season:

"If you asked me to seriously kiss someone on a [sic] screen, I would be very uncomfortable. But I will lick any part of your face. So what was just supposed to be  a little gross turned into a dance of mouths and of hair and of teeth. He's the best bad kisser. There's no one I'd rather bad kiss."

In Details (August 2013), Ryan Reynolds—shot by Mark Seliger—describes his early-years acting duties as:

"playing every ex-Dynasty star's son in every crappy movie of the week that came to town."

And then things got worse.

Details (June/July 2013) continues to prove that Henry Cavill is the most beautiful man alive, courtesy of photos by Mark Seliger. In the feature, he recalls growing up an overweight loner shipped off to boarding school, one dealing with a painful nickname:

"I was fat. I was Fat Cavill. I balwed on the phone to my mom four times a day. I became an easy target. My version of Superman is essentially of a guy who has spent his whole life alone."

It's kind of funny how his confession, in Hollywood, feels so deeply shameful. Not having 100% control over one's body fat is a major weakness among movie folk.

But for his looks and his sensitivity, Fat Cavill gives me a chubby.

Everybody Goes Down On Hollywood Comments (10)

Fuckable-stars
Details (April 2013) handily lists the most fuckable stars in Hollywood. The guys are, in order: Ryan Gosling, Zac Efron, Adam Levine, Channing Tatum and Bradley Cooper.

Do you agree? I think they're all sexy in varying ways, but I have to say I am not on the Ryan Gosling train. He's attractive, but I think his body is really selling him to people. I know the same could be said of Channing Tatum, yet I like his face better.

Rebel Wilson is shot with underwear-clad men as accessories for Details (December 2012). If I'm not mistaken, it was the same mag (?) that did a similar shot of Rosie O'Donnell almost 20 years ago.
