Arrived: October 22, 2008
Love It: The amazing photos of Nick Youngquest by Pedro Virgil, as well as the Jamie Hanson spread by Joseph Sinclair.
Like It: A fantastic guide to finding free and legal music online (including a big shout out to HDJ fave Arjan Writes), and a round of up their favorite MySpace musicians (including recently featured Jay Brannan.)
Leave It: Those briefs on coverman Nick Youngquest need to go...
Question It: The fitness tips in "Pecs Get Sex..." sound basically good -- but the inclusion of a testosterone supplement made that question mark bubble appear over our heads.
UPDATED: Added four more photos.
Sexy Brazilian Digo Padovan currently is featured on Connex247 - check him out!
DNA Magazine is a perennial favorite around our house, and the latest issue hit our mailbox on Monday. The cover photo, shot by Pedro Virgil features two sexy Aussie lifeguards in their red speedos. (Unfold the cover and three more join them. Pull out the poster in back and there are two more!)
The boys (L to R): Peter, Jason, Tom, Liam, Shane, Josh and Rob.
Okay, so we've all seen the Naked for a Cause calendar (and some of the finest buttocks we'll lay eyes on all year) but the $64,000 question is... Can you name the charity that it benefits? What cause it supports?
If the answer is no, that's totally OK... it's easy to get distracted with work like this, right?
The 2008 Naked for a Cause calendar benefits the McGrath Foundation. The organization was created by Jane McGrath (and husband, cricketer Glenn McGrath.) Their aim is to increase awareness of breast cancer, as well as work to provide more breast cancer nurses nationally in Australia.
When Jane was going through her second battle with breast cancer, she had access to one of these specialized nurses and learned what a great source of knowledge and support they can be for breast cancer patients. Since then, the foundation has made it one of their primary goals to increase the number of these nurses available.
I just received my copy and have to say -- Pedro's work is amazing and the sheer number of portraits in the book (it really is almost more of a poster book than a calendar) is great. This isn't your grandmother's 12-month calendar of kittens!
So -- go out and buy one of the calendars to support the McGrath Foundation! Click here to see more photos.
I was coming home on Monday, and got concerned as I was walking towards my mailbox and saw smoke curling out of the keyhole in the box... I opened up the mailbox (smoke pouring from it) and pulled out the contents. "Ah," I thought, "it's just the new issue of DNA Magazine."
Photographer Pedro Virgil took these photos of model Vincent Gough for the magazine on Lake Macquarie. Vincent is a former Irish rugby player (and you know how we love them!) He's in fantastic shape -- and knows how to show off swim trunks.
