The weather where I am has been pretty bad, with almost non stop rain. Whenever it is a dat like this, I busy myself with thoughts regarding media, movies and television. Today my mind came on the trends in movie and television that are growing tiresome. For me, reality TV is a real drag as I find it false and overly manufactured. But what trend in movies and television is getting a bit old hat or pointless to you? Hopefully this image of me contemplating helps.
I don’t whether I say it enough, but I couldn’t do this blog without all of the support I receive. You wonderful people truly inspire me and keep me going. I love you all so much for your feedback and incredible kindness. You all deserve a big hug. On an added note, I do have a number of posts ready for soon for you all to read. I know I’ve been slacking lately, but not anymore.
It is that spooky time of year for everyone, yes it’s Halloween. My horror coverage hasn’t been as prominent as last year, but I promise horror will still have a place on my blog being my favourite genre. So what is everyone up to today? Is there a party? Or is it a night in with scary movies? Whichever it is, feel free to share.
I was recently tagged by Gill to take part in the Five Flaming Hotties post. This was set up by her and the fabulous Cat I want to thank them for tagging me for this fun challenge. Sexiness is a common thing on this blog, so this gives me yet another excuse to feature it. Anyway, here are the rules.
- You must add the name of the blog who tagged you AND those of the 2 Reel Quirky Cats, Thoughts All Sorts and Realweegiemidget Reviews with links to these sites as given here.. and use the natty picture promoting this post (found later in this post).
2 Reel Quirky Cats
and Thoughts All Sorts
2. List 5 of your all time greatest hotties from TV or Film. ie crushes / objects of your affection. If you want to (I know some of you who do), musicians and sports stars can be included.
3. Say how you were introduced to them, and why you like them (keep it clean)
4. Link to 7 other bloggers.
5. Add lovely pictures of those you selected.
6. Oh…and post the rules..
And onto my hotties…
Kylie Minogue: The pint-sized pop star has the distinction of being my first celebrity crush. I can’t remember the exact age at which I was introduced to her, but I remember it being something of a schoolboy crush. It was seeing her in her music video for ‘Spinning Around’ that I saw her, specifically for those gold hot pants. She just radiated a gorgeousness that still carries through into today. A luscious beauty with a lovely smile is how I think of Kylie.
Sarah Michelle Gellar: It must have been when I was 10 when I was first introduced to Buffy the Vampire Slayer. And from the moment I saw Sarah Michelle Gellar, my heart skipped a beat. Her athleticism, attitude and feistiness made her one of my favourite television heroines and crushes. She projected a sex appeal and enthusiasm that was impossible to ignore and still continues now for me.
Sophia Loren: A cinematic goddess of loveliness and talent, Sophia Loren is Old-School Hollywood at its most glamorous. It was my Grandpa who introduced me to her and I was most thankful to him for that. Her exotic beauty captured my heart, but most of all it was her eyes. So feline and piercing, eyes that were made for the camera to last forever.
Alyssa Milano: The first time I saw her in Charmed as a young boy of 8 or 9, I was struck. Not only by her gorgeous looks, but by her innate liveliness and charm. She projected a rebellious and loving quality as the youngest sister of a long line of powerful witches. And her gorgeous figure was featured in an array of daring outfits that were spellbinding all of their own. My eyes were fixed on her and her beautiful presence on screen.
It was at age 12 while finally watching The Lord of the Rings Trilogy that I encountered the dazzling Cate Blanchett. Her pale skin, her blue eyes and that undeniably regal demeanor left me entranced. But although she is physically striking, it is the talents of Blanchett that really intrigue. She’s such a chameleon and after my first sight of her, I watched many of her movies and was truly amazed at her versatility. Truly one of the finest and most beautiful actresses today.
And here are my nominees for this:
I hope everyone enjoyed reading this post and once more I would like to say how grateful I was to take part.
Jason’s Movie Blog – Jason is a fine fellow blessed with a cinematic brain and killer sense of humour. If you want a great discussion as well as review to read, cool Jason is certainly your man.
Maddy Loves Her Classic Films – Like the title says, Maddy is a student and disciple of Old School Hollywood and movie making. For in-depth knowledge on a golden period of movies, the delightful Maddy is awaiting you.
Mike Lando. Com – The hilarious and pleasure to converse with Mike is the man to go to if you want to know about music. Add in there his wit and rib-tickling humour and it’s a sheer delight of a site.
Assholes Watching Movies– Jay, Matt and Sean run this incredible movie blog that practically overflows with keen insight and observation. With a tongue in cheek writing style as well as deep understanding of cinema, their amiability is what truly makes their blog a special place.
Lately as you’ve noticed, the Carry On Movies have become the main thing I’ve spoken about here. But I wholeheartedly promise that there will be other content on here. Never fear my friends:
- There are reviews of the movies I listed that I really should have watched by now.
- Kitchen sink dramas have not been forgotten.
- And following a recent trend, my personal posts will be here too
So if you’re not a Carry On fan, there’s still plenty to enjoy.
As I’m becoming more confident with things, I find it wonderful to share information and trivia with all of you fabulous people out there. So here’s another round of hopefully interesting facts about me.
- Both my brother and I were born three weeks early.
- Lofty or lanky was a common nickname for me in school, owing to my height.
- I was always known when I was a kid for being the one who never swore. Man, how times have changed.
- I’m currently single, so ladies I’m all yours.
- I find Italian and Spanish to be the sexiest accents.
- I hope in the future a cure is found for cancer and all other disease.
I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, I wouldn’t be here without the blogging community I have around me. You are the shining lights and extended family of mine. So to celebrate, I’m giving back by suggesting blogs you should definitely follow.
Son of a Beach – This fine blog is exciting and visually stunning, featuring photography that just sweeps you away. The man behind it is cool, friendly and intelligent. You couldn’t ask for a nicer guy or more fun blog.
This Is My Truth Now – James runs this prolific site that positively overflows with energy, humour and depth. With a very approachable style and amiable appearance, this blog is a ray of light and love.
I enjoyed doing the last post like this and the feedback of it. In case anyone missed it, you can find it here. My love for things is pretty unending but I’ll narrow it down to some specifics as best I can.
I love my followers. The blogging community has been superb to me and I owe so much to you all. You’re a constant hub of love, opinions and conversation that never grows old. Thank you everyone for your support and care.
I love sex. Hopefully that didn’t come off as too creepy for everyone, but sex is a natural and beautiful thing. It’s an experience that combines physical and mental stimulation, plus pleasure. How can you go wrong?
I love the glamour of Old Hollywood movies. There’s a special kind of dedication and magic that’s impossible to recapture in anything modern. I can’t explain it, but there’s something exceptional and timeless about the great movies of the post.
I love to dance. Not ballroom or anything, just regular dance. Ever since I can remember, dancing has been something I revisit and enjoy. Now I’m no professional, but I’ve been told I can bust a move pretty well.
