Boy Culture Turns 6: My Favorite Posts Comments (13)

IMG_7536Prove it!

As of midnight last night, it was exactly six years since my first post. It's been a tough thing to keep up with a dayjob and outside activities, and just when I think I might walk away, a valuable connection or interesting opportunity or a kind word comes my way. Thank you all for reading me.

Here are my favorite 100+ posts out of nearly 11,000. Please take some time to read (or re-read!) a couple and tweet or Facebook any you like.

Playgirl Changes Hands, PopEater Will Eat Itself? Comments (1)

ANardicio says cock-loving women are still a big part of the mag's readership

I heard from a good source that the print component of Playgirl—revitalized by Daniel Nardicio in the past two years after a disappearing act—had been sold to a New Jersey publisher for an undisclosed amount, and that the online and products line (they have items in GNC and other stores) would stay with the current owners.

SafariScreenSnapz001 Nardicio has confirmed the rumor, and says he expects to continue working for the print title, something he excels at because, "I like cock. I know about cock."

If you think that's anything to sneeze at, remember how lame Torso was when its editor was a fat guy. (Me!)

I'll be curious to see how the Playgirl story continues to unfold on the newsstand, and if the owners of the magazine and the owners of the Web site will be able to Play nice together.


SafariScreenSnapz002 In other (big) news, I've also heard that HuffingtonPost is going to do away with PopEater, folding it into HuffingtonPost Entertainment.

If true, I'll be sad to see it go.

Everything (Or Nothing) Looks Good On You Comments (4)

The Spring 2011 issue of Playgirl has been previewed in an e-newsletter, revealing that the mystery supermodel coverboy is none other than Tim Boyce.  Solidifying his status as an icon in the industry, he appeared on the cover of Arena Homme Plus in 1994 with Marcus Schenkenberg, Tyson Beckford, Gregg Spaulding and Larry Scott as part of the "High Five of the New Supermodel Army."

Currently the tatted up arm behind Equinox, his image was ubiquitous in the '90s. Tim's Equinox ad got him fired from working at a rival gym. But it was probably worth it:

Straight ally and all-around cutie-pie Scott Herman (interviewed and photographed here) says no to Playgirl but yes to tightie-whities; that's a compromise I can live with for now, and a step in the right direction!
