Hunk of the Day: Chris Pratt

chris pratt shirtless 1

Star of the upcoming ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, Chris Pratt worked his ass off with work-outs and healthy-eating to achieve the  results seen here. As such, he has earned the honor of being named the Hunk of the Day. If I had a trainer and a million dollars I could do the same thing. Not to detract from the fine work Mr. Pratt has crafted, I’m just saying… Tomorrow I’m hoping to see the new movie, and not just because of the shirtless GIF seen here. Plot and storyline and character development are just as important.

Hunk of the Day: James Whiteside

james whiteside 101

Ballet dancers have the best butts. Better than baseball players, football players, basketball players, or any ball players. Case in point is James Whiteside, Principal Dancer for the American Ballet. The hours of toil and trouble to refine a body into such a well-oiled machine are often wondered-at for a career that is notoriously short. Many dancers flare brilliantly for a few seasons, then by choice, or more often necessity, shift into something else. The demands of the ballet take their toll on the most resilient and strong of body and mind. Mr. Whiteside looks to be defying the odds of such-short-lived glory.

To hedge the bets, however, he also has an alter-ego, JbDubs, who moonlights as a pop singer and dance artist. On his official website is this more-succinct encapsulation of his career:

He writes/produces his music and choreographs his performances and music videos. JbDubs’ original music video for his song “I Hate My Job” has been featured on high profile websites and blogs such as: Perez Hilton, The Huffington Post, After Elton, and Instinct Magazine as well as in various print magazines around the world (Shangay Spain, Up2U Thailand, MTV3 Finland, and many more). His work has been featured on the Here!tv network shows “BOOMBOX” and “She’s Living For This” which are broadcast to all major cable network providers.

JbDubs released his debut album, “Free To Love”, independently in 2011, his sophomore album, “OINK” in 2012, and an EP titled “Hey JB!” in 2013. He is a seasoned performer and is known for his upbeat pop numbers and choreography.

He is an openly gay pop singer with artistic experience, musical instinct, and killer dance moves.

Oh, and then there’s this: The Fanny Bounce. ‘Nuff said.

Hunk of the Day: Ryan Barrett

Being both in front of and behind the lens is often a boon to the creative process. Such is the double-hatted world of Hunk of the Day Ryan Barrett. But as they say on ‘Reading Rainbow,’ you don’t have to take my word for it. Here, in the model-photographer’s own language, is an encapsulation of said work. (And pictorial evidence to support it.)

Photography is a visual language and to fully recognise its importance and power, one must be able to read and understand what really differentiates a good photograph from a great photograph. I often say that there is no such thing as being a better photographer than anyone else. What a photographer should try to do is photograph their world as honestly as they see it and hope that the rest of the world recognises and sympathises with that view. ~ Ryan Barrett

Working both sides of the lens has afforded me many wonderful opportunities and experiences. It has given me an education and desire continually to explore the question. Photography is by it’s very nature selfish. Only one eye is used to compose an image and at the precise moment of capture, only one person’s finger can press the shutter. ~ Ryan Barrett

Hunk of the Day: Adam Lambert ~ A Second Coming

adam lambert 1000

Maybe it’s the new facial hair, maybe it’s the new haircut, or maybe it’s his front-man status for Queen, but for some reason Adam Lambert just got a whole lot hotter, hence his current re-crowning as the Hunk of the Day. (Alongside such double-dipper-strippers as Alex Pettyfer, Todd Sanfield, and Ronnie Kroell, Mr. Lambert joins an elite group of guys whose hotness exceeds a single Hunk of the Day post.) He’s stomping through Queen’s tour in Freddie’s platform shoes, and from all accounts he’s slaying it as if to the manner born. His cocky, sexy, flamboyant showmanship is an ideal draw for filling stadiums with howling fans, while his larger-than-life charisma reaches the very ends of the earth.

Hunk of the Day: Timor Steffens

Timor Steffens 101

For some reason, it’s always a dicey affair when Madonna begins dating a guy. For every Jesus Luz, there is a Warren Beatty. This time around, she’s rumored to be seeing Hunk of the Day Timor Steffens. My jury’s still out on how hot this guy is – I’m honestly undecided. It’s the same thing that happened with her last boy-toy, Brahmin Zaibat. In some photos he was stirringly sexy, in others I wondered what she was thinking. For now, she gets the benefit of the doubt because, after all, she’s Madonna.

Hunk of the Day: Jack Laugher

While the world may swoon over Tom Daley (of which this site is largely guilty) there are other British divers that fill out their Speedos just as well, such as Jack Laugher, the Hunk of the Day. In addition to his fun name, there are his perky assets – just keep scrolling down to see them. Forget the Olympics, the real contest is between Laugher and Daley in the Speedo department. Who do you think wins that battle?

Hunk of the Day: André Hamann

André Hamann101

Forget the World Cup, one of the best things Germany has done is give birth to the Hunk of the Day, André Hamann. Rather than espousing upon his obvious attributes in my silly words, let’s have a few quotes from a much more masterful word-worker, Nathaniel Hawthorne in ‘The Marble Faun.’ They pertain to Mr. Hamann, and any beautiful man or woman for that matter. They also tell us a bit about art, and beauty, and humanity. The conundrum is that Mr. Hawthorne seems decidedly undecided as to which is more powerful. See for yourself…

Nature needed, and still needs, this beautiful creature, standing betwixt man and animal, sympathizing with each, comprehending the speech of either race, and interpreting the whole existence of one to the other. ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne

It was difficult to make out the character of this young man. So full of animal life as he was, so joyous in his deportment, so handsome, so physically well-developed, he made no impression of incompleteness, of maimed or stinted nature. ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne

And, in truth, while our friend smiled at these wild fables, he sighed, in the same breath, to think how the once genial earth produces, in every successive generation, fewer flowers than used to gladden the preceding ones. Not that the modes and seeming possibilities of human enjoyment are rarer, in our refined and softened era, (on the contrary, they never before were nearly so abundant,) but that mankind are getting so far beyond the childhood of their race, that they scorn to be happy any longer. A simple and joyous character can find no place for itself among the sage and sombre figures that would put his unsophisticated cheerfulness to shame. The entire system of Man’s affairs, as at present established, is built up purposely to exclude the careless and happy soul. ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne

Thus coarsely does the world translate all finer griefs that meet its eye! It is more a coarse world than an unkind one. ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne

This hallowed work of genius shows what pictorial art, devoutly exercised, might effect in behalf of religious truth; involving, as it does, deeper mysteries of Revelation, and bringing them closer to man’s heart, and making him tenderer to be impressed by them, than the most eloquent words of preacher or prophet. ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne

Hunk of the Day: Bryan Thomas

Bryan Thomas 101

Some men are so physically perfect you simply have to sigh. Case in beautiful point is Pennsylvania-born male model Bryan Thomas, the Hunk of the Day, who seems born to be on the cover of a magazine. Beauty has its own spirituality, even in the slight way it elicits a sigh, a whisper of desire, the hint of want. There is a long tunnel of longing in each of our lives. Such prettiness is a reminder of this. It’s the same prettiness that unfurls from the frond of a fern, or drips from the dew-stained bloom of the rose. It is visceral and ephemeral, fixed and fleeting, and it tugs as much at the mind as it does on the heart.

Hunk of the Day: Sung Jin Park

Sung Jin Park0

Represented by Wilhemina Models in New York, this is Sung Jin Park, the Hunk of the Day. A native of Korea, Mr. Park is a bit on the thin side, recalling the waif-like hey-day of early 90′s heroin-chic. (How did Marky Mark ever get into the underwear scene at such a thin time?) Mr. Park is further representation of the Asian male model explosion currently taking over the pretty scene.

Hunk of the Day: J.W. Harvey

JW Harvey 1001

There aren’t many writers who have made it into the realm of Hunk of the Day. Wait, are there any? (Peruse the Archives if you want – I’m too lazy to do so.) I don’t think there are, so this may be the christening of our first, and it goes fittingly to J.W. Harvey, a FaceBook friend who writes for The Huffington Post. And, since he is the writer, here is his bio on that venerable site:

J.W. Harvey is a shapeshifting creative in New York. A writer by nature, he uses the arts of acting and modeling to explore new characters and emotional depths–as well as gaining influence from other artists as a freelance event and social media manager–repackaging his experiences in words for the reader to unwrap. He candy-coats deep intellectuality with shiny commercial ribbon, creating artistic layers that all audiences can consume.

If there’s one thing that’s sexier than such an exquisite body and face, it’s intelligence. Talent and thoughtfulness add further layers of interest, but when someone can articulate complex themes and probing analysis and turn them into words seemingly spun of gold, that’s always impressive to me. The art of writing is a vanishing one, thanks to character limits and the attention-deficit epidemic of the internet (to which blogs like this are admittedly to blame.) Thankfully, Mr. Harvey is doing what he can to stop the inevitable erosion, and when you’re done drooling over his chiseled chest and dreamy eyes, take a few moments to read some of his work.

These are connections that you know are there even when you’re not. These are the connections that you can measure all of your relationships against.

You don’t pick and choose who these people are in your life, but when you find them, keep them. Cherish them. With them, you can forgive any guilt or worry without a single expression. With them, you can find peace in their eyes, whether you can see them or not. ~ J.W. Harvey

Hunk of the Day: Cooper Grodin

Phantoms can be fierce, as evidenced by current masked man Cooper Grodin, who stars in the touring production of ‘The Phantom of the Opera’ playing in Boston right now. While Grodin spends all of his stage time covered in masks and prosthetics, in real life he cuts a much more dashing figure, hence this Hunk of the Day designation.

Hunk of the Day: Todd Finlay

The Hunk of the Day hails from Down Under. This is Todd Finlay, an Australian-born model who has spent a chunk of time in Miami. If you’re going to model, I suppose Miami is as good a place as any in which to work. And if you happen to look like Mr. Finlay, finding work shouldn’t be much of a problem.

Hunk of the Day: Ian Thorpe

Ian Thorpe

Apparently Ian Thorpe is due to publicly come out as gay, after denying it for years. Mr. Thorpe is an Australian swimmer, whose swiftness earned him the nickname ‘Thorpedo.’ His journey in coming out after years of denials was reportedly a tortured and tumultuous one, but he’s finally done it, and I hope he finds a little bit of the peace that has eluded him all this time. A little Hunk of the Day shout-out is along overdue. He has also done a line of underwear – fitting for an Olympian whose wardrobe has mostly favored Speedos.

Hunk of the Day: Diego Sans

Diego Sans 101

Andrew Christian has contributed quite a few of the Hunks of the Day, notably Pablo HernandezQuinn Jaxon, Colby Melvin, Jon Varak, Noah Wright, and, well, Andrew Christian himself. Now we’re adding one of his recent models (and former gay porn star) Diego Sans to the sexy mix. Sans sans clothing indeed. Hardy har hard. Too much? Never. No such thing. Happy Sunday Funday.
