Hot Tub Time Machine???

Fly On The Wall
Hailey Baldwin & Justin Bieber
This rather curious photo of Justin Bieber & Fiancee Hailey Baldwin in a passionate lip lock recently graced Bieber's Instagram.

What's so curious about an engaged couple making out you may ask? Well clearly there was a third party involved for the moment to be captured. Also whoever the individual was, they were soaking in the tub with the two lovebirds - right across from them I might add.

Talk about being a third wheel! Unless there was some sort of way to bend the laws of physics that enabled the Biebs to somehow capture the moment by utilizing the hot tub as a time machine...well you get the picture, and obviously somebody else did too.

So the real question of the day is, who took this steamy photo and how did the individual feel about being that close in proximity to the intimate moment?

Whoever it was my bet is it was a guy that shot it, think about it, but not too much.

Mic Drop!

Silly Saturday

Mahna, Mahna
Kylie Minogue & Some Friends
Today I am feeling light and breezy, "No" definitely not easy and breezy...

Thus this image of Pop Superstar Kylie Minogue with The Muppets is exactly what one needs to take in on a Silly Saturday. I feel silly, oh so silly I feel silly and witty and bright. And I pity anyone who isn't me today!

Kylie took some time out to be a special guest on The Muppets Take The 02 in London, England recently and it looks like she had a blast. Thus in return I have put you all on blast that she is now Queen of the Muppets - Ha! Kidding, or am I.

Don't you love a good secret? Of course you do. Especially when it's Kylie Minogue's .

The tone has been set for the day, enjoy it!

Mic Drop!

Friday The 13th

Ride Hard
Madonna
Today is the day of superstition & Jason Vorhees, in other words break out the black cats and machetes and have yourself a Kiki!

Me on the other hand I like to ride my bicycle, I want to ride it where I like...so I'm gonna make like Madonna seen here pedaling down the streets of London and hit the asphalt on my two wheeler.

Friday the 13th nonsense be damned, nothing is going to rain on this guy's parade. Seriously nothing is, there is zero percent chance of rain today in sunny Los Angeles, we are currently being held hostage by a heatwave after all.

Time to hit the shower and get my ride on!

Happy Friday the 13th... "Ki, ki, ki, ma, ma, ma"

Hump Day & Chill

You Want Some Of This???
Paul Rudd
Let's cut to the Hump Day & Chill chase shall we? With Ant Man and the Wasp being the number one attraction at the box office that means Paul Rudd is everywhere. It also reminds me of how I have crushed on him in many a movie. He is a combination of offbeat good looks and humor that, well sort of make up the perfect unconventional hunk.

"Yes" I immediately surfed over to Tye Briggs Favorite Hunks & Other Things to see if he had done an un-coverage on Mr. Rudd. Shocker, not a shocker, he had and feels the same way about Rudd that I do. Judging by the popularity of the Ant Man movies we are not alone in our crush. 

Now that I've got that out of my system, while I am sure Ant Man and Ant Man and the Wasp are quite entertaining I never saw the first, and don't intend on seeing the second. File it under NMT aka Not My Thing.

Rudd's film The Shape of Things with Rachel Weisz is MT aka My Thing

Now that you have an idea of what my jam is it's time to Hump Day & Chill to Paul by clicking on the link below - have fun and don't do anything I wouldn't do!

Monday Motivation

Insecurity Vanquished
l-r
Stassie Karanikolaou & Kylie Jenner
Sometimes motivation, especially on a Monday takes on strange bedfellows. While I am not a Kardashian fan, I couldn't help but notice this image of Kylie Jenner and her BFF Stassie Karanikolaou on the WWW - why you may ask? Because Jenner finally got rid of the hideous lip filler she has been using for a spell and looks great!

Those lips made her look like something from the X-Men movie series I tell you what. Now she is back to looking like her attractive normal self.

She cops to her lips being an insecurity of hers, thus the filler. I say hats off to her for overcoming that insecurity and realizing she is better off, and more attractive without the plump.

Like I said Monday Motivation can take on many different forms and entities. Today's sermon is let go of things that no longer serve you. Your insecurities are just that - something that makes you do things that really don't work.

Thanks Kylie!

Sunday Schwing!

Happy 60th Birthday!
Kevin Bacon
While browsing IMDB this ayem I spied something that caught me totally off guard. "Yes" it was their list of Birthdays today - why would that catch me off guard? Glad you inquired, because one of the celebrities born today was Kevin Bacon and he turns, wait for it...60!

Kevin was quite the ubiquitous presence in film during the 80's and 90's. His off beat looks and hot body gave him a sex appeal all his own. Also there was the matter of his, well um, Bacon. There I said it! 

While he has a great ass that he he bared many a time on the silver screen it was quite clear, especially when he wore a barely there Speedo in the original Friday The 13th that he was packing large. "Yeppers" I and many others wanted to bring home the Bacon!

Finally we got an eyeful of it in 1998's Wild Things, where Kevin exposes his package to Matt Dillon while toweling off after a shower. Lucky Matt and happy audience.

Thus to celebrate Kevin turning the big six - oh I am gifting all of you with him in his Birthday Suit in various roles via Tye Briggs Favorite Hunks & Other Things.

So what are you waiting for?! Click on the link below and let your Sunday Schwing commence! 

Boing!

Just Because...Margot Robbie

Ballroom Blitz?
Margot Robbie
Just Because I actually slept in today, Just Because she looks amazing in a little black dress & Just Because I loved her in I, Tonya - it's a Margot Robbie kind of day!

That's correct minions you gotta love that Margot. Why? Just Because I decreed it.

While I never saw her in Suicide Squad, I'd rather attempt the first part of that movie title than watch it. I fell head over heels for Ms. Robbie when I saw her in the film I, Tonya. So much so that I felt she deserved to win the Oscar for it.

Sorry, not sorry Frances McDormand,  I love you too, but let's face it chica, you had won before and were an easy get for the waxworks who vote on the Academy.

How do I adore Margot let me count the ways...

I follow her on Instagram, I pay attention to her upcoming projects and I post amazing photos of her right her, right now when I have a chance.

Now it's time to say goodbye, etcetra and vice versa.

Have a Margot Robbie Day!

Freaky Friday

Poodles, Poodles, Poodles!
Paul Rudd
With Ant Man and the Wasp opening, well today - I thought it was perfect timing to run this most curious photo of Paul Rudd that I stumbled across on the WWW..."Yes" minions welcome to Freaky Friday.

This weeks edition of FF does not include any body switching, sorry Jodie & Lindsay. No, this looks to be something of a totally different head. Poodle painting perhaps? The Poodle of a different color? Or ???

Whatever the case, it's definitely an image that will stick in your mind all Motherf#cking Friday, and perhaps, beyond.

Does that make me diabolical because I have inserted this into your consciousness? Perhaps a little more intriguing? Yeah, I figured as much...

It's time to let your freak flag fly, it's Friday after all!!!

"Saturday in the park, I think it was the Fourth of July" - Saturday In The Park, Chicago 

Was yesterday the 4th of July?! Well I wasn't in the park, or was I??? Perhaps I was picking posies or catching caterpillars. It really makes no difference how I whiled away the hours on July 4th, or perhaps it does.

Time to get this July 5th party started minions!

Just saw a byline that stated: Amber Heard Slammed - some girls have all the luck

It's time to rethink moisturizer, the more you know

I revisited the Billy Wilder classic Sunset Blvd. up on the roof July the 3rd at the Montalban Theater in the heart of Hollywood. I didn't remember it being as funny as it actually is from when I saw it in my youth. 

Age = Perspective 

A big yawn out to Nikki Bella & John Cena for the lamest PR stunt ever

I have a dream...of course you do darlin'

Heard on the street "I'm Leonard for no reason" - actually there is one, because it's the name your Mama gave you!

Current Mood: Happy Birthday America!

Why Don't You Come Up & See Me Sometime...
Stephen Colbert
While I am really not sure what to say about America's 242nd Birthday I do know that the above image of one Stephen Colbert perfectly sums up my Current Mood.

I'm not going to spill on my true thoughts and feelings about the state of our union because my Mama always said "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all." Yeah, I know that has never really stopped me, but I would like today to be positive and productive

How am I celebrating? Well last night I went to a Rooftop Screening of the Billy Wilder classic Sunset Blvd. @ The Montalban Theater in Hollywood. With my friends Brittney & Naama.

We had a total blast and "yes" we could see fireworks going on in the surrounding area from the roof with a view.

Thus I leave you with a photo of the three of us, oh and don't forget to boogie in the butt, it's the fourth of July after all!

Monday Motivation

Surfs Up & So Am...
Chris Hemsworth

Today to get a little jump start I have enlisted none other than Thor God Of Thunder himself Chris Hemsworth

While I have never surfed in my entire life seeing Chris take to the beach makes me contemplate doing so. That is as long as he is my instructor.

All getting hot and bothered aside, while Mr. Hemsworth is a thing of beauty, he is also quite motivational. Having dropped 46 lbs. and gotten into some of the best shape of my life he inspires me to continue to be my personal best

We should all strive to be the best version of ourselves that we can. That just happens to include taking care of ones self physically as well as mentally. You know, self love, I mean care. Whatever you all know what I'm saying, and it doesn't have to be horizontally either.

On that note now it's time to say goodbye to you all and say "Hello Monday" get motivated and rock it minions!

Ariel Beesley
This past Friday, "yes" two days ago. I had the extreme pleasure of seeing a young woman who I have known since she was, well just a kid, grow-up and blossom into one of the best singer/songwriter/musician/performers this dude has ever bared witness to.

Ladies & Gentlemen I present to you my evening seeing the singular talent known as Ariel Beesley @ The Satellite in Silverlake, CA!

OK, some of this may not be from that evening. I do want you to hear her bomb ass song Slower Than Usual, thus I have included the video for it via YouTube. But and however for the most part...moving on here it is!!!
