Hunk of the Day: Sacha M’baye

Sacha M'baye 100

Summer may be drawing to its close, but not before a few more days of hotness, exemplified by Hunk of the Day Sacha M’baye, who made a splash in a recent H&M ad campaign. I have an H&M swimsuit, but I don’t look nearly as good in mine as Mr. M’baye looks in his. As a wise woman once said upon discovering that her crush was married, “That’s one of life’s little fuck-overs.” Amen.

Hunk of the Day: Nate Gill

nate gill 101

First things first: Hunk of the Day Nate Gill was born a few days AFTER Madonna released her ‘Like A Prayer’ album in 1989. Yeah, 1989. For a 40-year-old like myself, that’s just inconceivable, but conceived he was, and out he came. Cut to a couple of decades later and he’s your Hunk of the Day. Mr. Gill, congratulations. You came about in a very good year. Of course, it took the magic of Bruce Weber and his work for the Abercrombie catalogs to put Mr. Gill on the male modeling map. I used to dream of being photographed by Mr. Weber, but such dreams were not to be… I digress. It’s not 1989 anymore. There’s a new regime of hotness now, headed up by Gill himself.

Hunk of the Day: Jess Vill

Maybe it loses something in the translation, but ‘Mister Men France 2014′ lacks the punch its holder has, so here’s a Hunk of the Day honor for Jess Vill to make it all better. Mr. Vill clearly has a lucrative modeling career before (and behind) him so he doesn’t need the support of my little website, but everyone loves some good old-fashioned ego-stroking. Congrats to Dear Jess.

Hunk of the Day: Steven Dehler

steven-dehler 100

Male model Steven Dehler and I have one of the following three things in common: he loves Britney Spears, he likes going commando on a regular basis, and he doesn’t usually do full-frontal nudity. Aside from that, he’s got a body perfection most of us will never achieve, but it’s always good to be inspired, so here you go. Congrats to Mr. Dehler on being named the Hunk of the Day.

Hunk of the Day: Dustin Yellin

dustin yellin 101

A champion of the quirky and the unconventional, I’ll always do my best to push the acceptance of alternative types of beauty, male and otherwise. To that end, today’s Hunk of the Day is artist Dustin Yellin, who has displayed a propensity for injecting nudity into his art, whether in person or in photos or other methods of representation. I can appreciate and marvel at how it is both an integral component to his oeuvre, as well as a jarring and sometimes dissident aspect that must be overcome. That’s the best form of art for me – the kind that is uneasily beautiful, the kind that sits just slightly askew of the gorgeous. Without that sort of challenging prism, there’s a lot less color to the world. Thanks to Mr. Yellin for making it all pop.

Hunk of the Day: Daron Cruickshank

daron cruickshank 101

While he’s not the first Ultimate Fighting Championship mixed martial artist to be featured as a Hunk of the Day, Daron Cruickshank is definitely the most naked. I won’t post the full photos because we don’t do full-frontal male nudity here (and don’t pretend to be surprised). Besides, I’m not going to do the hard work for you – look it up yourself. (Sorry, I just got back from a peaceful extended birthday weekend in Boston and I’m a little cranky.) Anyway, congrats to Mr. Cruickshank!

Hunk of the Day: Nicholas Clayton

IMG_7702.JPG
By the looks of him, Nicholas Clayton spends a lot of time at the gym. But even his buff body probably didn’t want to spend the entire night there, which seemed to be how things might play out after he got locked into a fitness center in Florida recently. He posted a video of it, which is making the internet rounds, as much for the absurdity of his predicament as for his handsome mug. Stranger things have brought hunks to this page, but not many. Congrats to Mr. Clayton for keeping his cool, and keeping things hot.

Hunk of the Day: Jacob McCaslin

jacob mccaslin 101

The process of choosing a Hunk of the Day is haphazard and random at best. There is no scientific method involved in such sexy madness. Mostly, it’s whatever crosses my FaceBook or Twitter feeds. Such was the instance in the selection of Jacob McCaslin as Hunk of the Day. I’d seen his handsome face on a photo promoting his appearance at the Trophy Room in Boston. I haven’t been there since it was Fritz, and from all indications I’ve been missing some good things (and not just the killer cocktails).

The best part of this hunk feature is that he already has a website delineating his accomplishments, so my work in writing this has been whittled down to this intro. Check out excerpts from his bio below:

Jacob McCaslin is an award winning vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and producer. While only 19 years old, and having never taken any music lessons, he is recognized as an advanced guitarist by respectable guitar players and dubbed a gifted singer by vocal instructors.

He received a songwriting scholarship from Berklee College of Music. Jacob has also been recognized for his songwriting abilities by winning KTUB’s One Song One Chance songwriting competition in 2011. Winning One Song gave Jacob McCaslin and his band at the time, Jacob McCaslin & Roll the Credits the opportunity to record an EP. In May of 2012, the band released Walk a Mile – EP, which is now available on iTunes. The Limited Edition version, which includes bonus tracks, behind the scenes footage, as well as remastered tracks, is available exclusively at jacobmccaslin.bandcamp.com.

After the success of the Walk a Mile EP and the summer tour, in which a majority of shows were primarily centered around the Seattle area, the band was able to afford their own recording equipment and began tracking songs for their future album. In addition to producing their own songs, Jacob McCaslin and Colton Stapper started Stapper Studios, a mobile recording company which focused on bring professional recording quality to local artists. As Colton and Jacob both engineered all the projects, Jacob also mixed/mastered everything.

In the start of 2013, the band announced that the album, Cautionary Tales, was being recorded and produced and would be released soon, and a hiatus from performing shows would be initiated.

Shortly after announcing the band’s hiatus, the single, and cover of Mama’s Gun’s, ‘Get a High’ was released on YouTube and Bandcamp for free. Jacob McCaslin & Roll the Credits received an amazing response and the video grew very popular, reaching 50,000 views within the first 2 weeks of being released. After the success of ‘Get a High,’ the band focused on recording the rest of the album. In September 2013, the band released ‘Cautionary Tales,’ exclusively on BandCamp.

Hunk of the Day: Luke Shaw

Luke shaw

My burgeoning love affair with all things Manchester continues in full-force, as Hunk of the Day Luke Shaw came to prominence thanks to his work on Manchester United. One of the team’s pricier acquisitions, his performance for his first season on the team has been graded (by his own admission) a C-. I’m not sure how well he’s done as I don’t much follow the scores as much as the shirtlessness. He’s got the scruffy beginnings of a young David Beckham, but time will tell whether it all pans out.

Hunk of the Day: Freddie Woodward

freddie woodward 100

British diver Freddie Woodward makes his debut as the Hunk of the Day, perhaps giving Tom Daley a run for his Speedo-clad money. Giving him the edge over Mr. Daley is the glimpse of a nude photo shoot as seen in the gratuitous GIFs below. I think it’s time for Tom to return the naked volley. Or at least join forces in a team effort.

Hunk of the Day: Kelly Kilpatrick

Kelly Kilpatrick 100

There’s something endearing about a young man who is so openly honest about wanting to better himself, to be more than where he came from, more than the sum of his parts, that it only adds to the appeal of an already-physically-fit specimen like Kelly Kilpatrick. Currently represented by Crew Models International, Mr. Kilpatrick used modeling as a means to advance into worlds his upbringing would never have allowed. He’s largely succeeded, having been featured in numerous ads around the globe, and now looks poised to conquer his next adventure in fine form. Congrats to Kilpatrick on being named Hunk of the Day.

Hunk of the Day: Miles Teller

miles teller 101

Though his latest film, the why-did-they-even-bother ‘Fantastic Four’ remake, may have bombed, Miles Teller seems to be walking away unscathed, thanks to an unconventional sexiness and swagger that has Esquire magazine comparing him to a number of former film-greats (like Robert Mitchum). As Hunk of the Day, his almost-nakedness (but for a sock) had to be unearthed, but he’s here as much for said skin-exposure as he is for acting talent. His mesmerizing turn in ‘Whiplash’ was incredibly impressive, grounding the disturbing movie with a vulnerable heart. (Definitely worth a viewing, like Mr. Teller himself.)

PS – Bonus points for the matching naked butt shot he performed with Zac Efron.

Hunk of the Day: Lee Pace

lee pace 101

Lee Pace first came to my attention in the quirky television series ‘Pushing Daisies’ – which I initially watched only for Kristin Chenoweth, but soon grew to love for Mr. Pace’s subtle charms. Since then he’s been in gloriously-unrecognizable form in such diverse movies as ‘Guardians of the Galaxy‘, The Hobbit Trilogy, ‘Infamous’, and ‘Lincoln’. I love an actor who can morph with seemingly-effortless ease.

Hunk of the Day: Ellis McCreadie

Ellis McCreadie 01

Unlike some fame-hungry media-whores who will do anything and everyone for attention (I won’t mention any Kardashians), the most effective models are those who don’t dominate with their off-screen antics. Naomi Campbell notwithstanding, a successful modeling career seems to be built on variety and reinvention, and the tricky ability to be the physically-perfect embodiment of who we most want to be. That requires a certain blank-slate aspect, combined with beauty, and that’s a tough fine-line to straddle. Luckily for us, Hunk of the Day Ellis McCreadie knows how to straddle things. See below.

Hunk of the Day: Genaro Perez

Genaro Perez0

Represented by Red Models New York, this is Hunk of the Day Genaro Perez. A male model for the new world, Mr. Perez strikes a few stunning poses and obliterates mundane notions of masculine beauty. I like a model who challenges conventions, especially when it’s done in such a gorgeously elegant manner. Displaying an uncanny ability to morph into looks of stunning breadth and variety, Mr. Perez carries a chameleonic calling card that should cement his growing status in the modeling world.
