First rumored to be from Grindr, then “corrected” as plain old sexting, to female admirers. Certainly the poses are not unfamiliar. Hey, didn’t a city council guy resign for something similar, all of one year ago? Glad to know Danell (with two l’s) is 20. Source.
Seems very happy!
Summer Olympics is not just about athletics, it’s also about hot athletes. My favorite is Japanese world champion gymnast Kohei Uchimura, recently profiled and photographed by the New York Times magazine.
Kohei is incredibly strong, precise, and focused. He’s the first male gymnast to win three consecutive world all around titles (2009, 2010, 2011). In Beijing he won two silver medals.
And his visual style combines stubble for macho toughness with tall helmet hair that screams mom and eyebrows that have been yanked and angled within a few hairs of their existence. Swoon.
I am selfishly wishing he wins plenty of gold medals, and becomes a regular image of corporate marketing in Japan. I’d much prefer to see young Kohei than skinny Ichiro. Maybe that’s just me?
Who will you be stalking this Olympics?
Incredible. You can read an interview with the teen creator, Ton Do-Nguyen.
I have famously bad taste in music. And an abiding love for George Michael: the music, the lyrics, the stubble. This song addresses his recent brush with death.
The husband reminded me that it is “not OK” to photograph strangers’ shoes on the Tokyo Metro. I couldn’t resist.
Hakuho defeats Goeido, and is now 9-0 at the Nagoya Grand Sumo Championship after losing May’s Tokyo tournament. If he wins now, it’ll be his 23rd career Emperor’s Cup.
She’s wearing France’s colors! Long live the Revolution!
On the day I got my new digital camera, I saw Koh Masaki, Japan’s most famous gay adult movie star, being interviewed by two drag queens “live” at Alamas Cafe in Shinjuku Ni Chome. Immediately the camera purchase seemed like a good idea ; )
On the sidewalk, I chatted with other fans of his body of work. Whether natural or enhanced, Koh has several unique talents.
