Crushable

Wonder Woman, Batwoman and the new DC Comics

I’ve always been on the verge of being a comic book geek, without every quite arriving. As a kid I was a fan of the girl super heroes — I loved Wonder Woman, Isis and Batgirl on television, but my family wasn’t much into comic books and my lack of transport to a comics shop

Crushable: Hannah Hart

I posted a few of the awesome “My Drunk Kitchen” videos a while back, and now the cute-as-a-button Hannah Hart is on Episode 8 of her cooking drinking show (plus a couple of bonuses like a song and an not-so-advice video) and she’s received some major attention. This week she’s the subject of a Time

Crushable: Women with awesome voices

In my catalog of “hot women” I have a special category for women with awesome voices – and I don’t just mean singing voices, but speaking voices as well. There are a handful of women to whom I would just sit for hours upon hours and listen while they talked – and two of them

Overdue Crushable: My Wife

Since I’ve been talking about crushable women a bunch lately, I realize I’ve been remiss about writing about the most crushable of them all – my beautiful wife Stephanie. I know I talk about her occasionally and post photos, but I haven’t really gone all out very many times, have I? I know I’m probably

Elizabeth Mitchell confesses

Shamelessly cribbed from Dorothy Snarker’s very nice blog post about Elizabeth Mitchell: this cute video of her “confessing” to TV Guide magazine. Gosh, she is really funny. I thought she was a great actress in Lost, but had no idea what she was like as a person. Dorky and cute, as seen here.

The celebrity “freebie” list

From the episode of friends “The One with Frank Jr.” (season 3, episode 5) in which the gang all consider what five celebrities would be on their “freebie list”–people they can sleep with without anyone getting upset… my list: Tina Fey Mary-Louise Parker Anne Hathaway Kate Winslet Felicia Day alternate: Susan Sarandon

Oprah interviews Kate Winslet

Oprah interviewing Kate Winslet after her two golden globe wins for Revolutionary Road and The Reader. In this clip, Oprah is talking about scenes from The Reader. Note – in searching for links for this clip, I couldn’t find news sites that DIDN’T make double entendres with their “Winslet’s Golden Globes!” headlines. Golden indeed. Dorothy

20 Hotties for Thursday

I noted in my links a few days ago that the AfterEllen.com site has rated the “Hot 100 Women List” according to voting my their lesbian fans. This was in response to the crappy, misogynist list put together my Maxim magazine, and since AfterEllen’s list has gotten major press (and praise) for being diverse and

Celebrity Look Alike

If I could look like any celebrity, I would love to look like Sophie B. Hawkins. She’s incredibly gorgeous, and I love the way she dresses… very down to earth and a lot like I do. Even when she’s dressed up, she has amazing style. And then there are the times when she dresses up

You can’t Do That On Television

Wow, there’s a blast from the past… My friend Lori B. mentioned that she used to have a crush on Moose (Christine McGlade) the host of this Nickelodeon show… so did, I big time. I looked around for more info on her, but there doesn’t seem to be much on what she’s doing now, except

I want to be Batgirl

I miss making out. Not that I don’t do it anymore, but not the way I used to. I mean that I miss kissing that’s unaccompanied by sex, or thoughts of sex, or thoughts of a relationship, or thoughts of anything other than just — making out. That’s the best part of being a teenager
