2017: The Year in Review – Part 2

Our year in review continues, and this entry encapsulates four months, including the big summer break I took for the first time since this website was created in 2003. While it’s a labor of love, it’s still a labor, and that break was integral to its survival. Plus, you won’t even notice that some of July and all of August are missing, will you?

April 2017 ~

The oft-promised full-frontal Zac Efron nude photos

Madonna likes to get wet, and we love listening to it. (Almost always.)

Trevor Donovan gets gratuitous, while Simon Dunn gets naked again ~ (like Nyle DiMarco).

I love a Kimpton, especially if it’s in Chicago

My Twitter profile pic looks less salacious than it once did, but I’m still not wearing any pants.

Betty Buckley sounds more beautiful every year

Andy makes a delicious dinner

Glenn Close returned to ‘Sunset Boulevard’ in thrilling fashion

Seventeen years later, I returned to the scene of my heartbreak. Chicago remained as dramatic and beautiful and challenging as ever. There were beautiful belugas beneath the blue, a second row trip to ‘Hamilton’ and memories old and new that snuck up on me in unexpected ways. I did a lot of touring on my own, but there was solace in solitude, and beauty could brighten the dullest day if you only let it. 

Mysteriously vanishing men. (And a missing bird.)

I learned how to stuff it good

May 2017 ~

One of my favorite months of the year, May is perennially magical, even when mud is involved.

Lilac art, bright white bedding, and the magnificent Matisse. All in a year

A new favorite watering hole in Boston

One of my favorite productions of this past year

Those Darren Criss Speedo shots

Now bring us some figgy perfume!

The magic of Pietro Boselli in tight white briefs. And a few other sexy GIFs.

For some of us, May means a wedding anniversary: Part One, Part Two, Part Three, Part Four, Part Five, Part Six, Part Seven, Part Eight, Part Nine

I should have just posted this one link instead of typing all the above. Lesson learned. 

A man slowing down.

A banner NYC visit for Mother’s Day: Part One, Part Two, Part Three, Part Four, Part Five, Part Six

Looking back on my delusions, Part One and Part Two, before the last part of the Flower Bomb Balm.

All delusions must come to an end, and the end of all ends is not such an end after all.

Boston summer respite, and Boston beauty.

A tree worth coveting.

A risky Tom Ford gamble pays off for the beach

Getting prickly, getting beautiful, and getting some rest at long last

Before a brief goodbye, a reminder of how exciting life could be

The Madonna Timeline was back for one last entry before the break, and it was a doozy.

A hunky collection to last the rest of summer

Hunks of July included Justin TherouxDenevin MirandaCristian RomeroRenaud LavillenieNathan HopkinsonJavier Baez, Chris Pine and Sean Sarantos.
