The end isn't nigh, it's here


Celeb-bait
@ DAN-isms.com


This will be my last Celeb-bait boys, I thank those of you who kept returning here.  This blog has been a little experiment for me and it didn't end the way I wanted it too.

I hate the stigmatisation of sexuality with a comic-book-style veracity that superheroes reserve for their arch nemesis.  I think telling people what they can or can't wear, how they can or can't behave, and whether they can or can't look at other human beings as a normal part of  their sexuality, is damaging to the human spirit in ways that we can't quantify.   Gender equality is also close to my heart and I really wanted to make sure that if I presented articles on beautiful women, that I did the same on beautiful men.

This blog was meant to, in some small way, fight sexual stigmatisation and to make it acceptable to objectify equally...

...but I don't think I'm very good at promoting the lads.

I appreciate a good looking human being, even if they're a guy.  I say that from the standpoint of someone who's a hetro male, but who's happy to tap their girlfriend on the shoulder and go "woh, check out that guys arms - whatcha think?" or "Seriously, that guy has amazing eyes - I wish I had eyes like that..." without feeling awkward or wierd, but that's how I was raised.

You see my parents taught me that the most beautiful thing of all, the most amazing thing this world has to offer, are people.  I remember sitting on a bench by the beach with my family, over and over again, just watching people pass and my family pointing out individuals that they thought were exceptional and why. It became a game, the beautiful people game.  It was something that made me smile and I wanted to share that feeling.

Unfortunately a series of things have come to a head.  For a start, it's very hard to find good pics and stories about guys.  When I go through celebrity blogs in my mornings, I normally have 20-30 quality photoshoots/stories on  women to choose between, but struggle to find 3 of similar quality that feature men. Add to this the fact that eBlogger is changing it's rules on what content is allowed in it's blogs, meaning that a lot of what happens on this site will get banned (Nice work conservatives!  "Family friendly" fear-of-the-human-body wins again!).  I could move everything to Tumblr but this blog doesn't get anywhere near the hits that my other blogs do, so regretfully, I'm letting it go.

I hope some of the things here made you smile in appreciation of the male form and that you all continue do one thing for me-

Enjoy the beautiful people, people.

Colin Farrel looks different in True Detective

I'm used to seeing Colin Farrel like he does in the images above, or in other words, looking hot.  Pics of Colin have been released from True Detective season 2 and let's just say.... they're not what I expected:

Prince Harry cast a spell on Emma Watson


Celeb-bait
@ DAN-isms.com


Prince Harry is dating Emma Watson.  Yeah, let that sink in.

I personally don't think I could date Harry if I had a uterus, primarily because - while Harry is a tasty tasty piece of ginger goodness - prince Charles DNA is in that mix somewhere.  The universe has a cruel tendency to throw back to previous generations and I just don't know how I'd feel if my babies potentially came out looking like they could catch satellite signals with their Dumbo-esque ears.

Anyway.  Harry heard that Emma broke up with her man and put MI6 on getting that girls digits stat! asked through some friends for her number.  He organised for a group date, so as not pressure Lady Emma by the fact that she was hanging out with a freaking royal.  They've been on several dates since and things look rosey.

Kanye and Taylor Swift Are BBF's now



Celeb-bait
@ DAN-isms.com


I'm impressed that this story hasn't spiraled into "Kanye and Swift are having crazy-monkey-make-up sex" already. 

Kanye recently said in an interview with Ryan Seacrest that he was going to collaborate with Taylor Swift and pretty much anyone else that could make him dollar dollar bills y'all by having a fanbase. Now paps have snapped Kanye and Taylor coming out of the same restaurant a few minutes apart and everyone seems shocked. 

It's hard to collaborate, if you don't meet to discuss it...

Vanilla Ice will steal yo' things

@ DAN-isms.com


You've gotta be kind of dated (like me) to know who Vanilla Ice is.  When I was a wee lad, before discovering Guns'N'Roses, Vanilla Ice was my personal hero so this latest piece of news bums me out - Vanilla Ice has been arrested for burglary.  This is a statement by Florida Police Chief, Sean Scheller:

The Bieber roast is coming

So a while ago Justin Beiber put his hand up to be on a Comedy Central Roast, but was rejected.  Well he's finally going to his shot. Teaser trailer for the roast below:

Tom Hiddleston is being hot in gothic horror "Crimson Peak"

@ DAN-isms.com


Film maker Guillermo Del Toro is back with his new movie (trailer below) "Crimson Peak" which is supposed to be romantic, sexy and scarey all at the same time.  But let's focus on what's important - Tom Hiddleston.

Tom is the movie's main character in the worlds creepiest mansion, fending off ghosts while cradling his secret pain.  Cliched?  Who cares - the trailer looks awesome.

Justin Bieber buys mountains of good press for $200


Celeb-bait
@ DAN-isms.com


Bieber recently released a video telling everyone how he's turned over a new leaf and is a good boy now.  Beliebers everywhere frothed at the groin and screamed "praise Jesus",
or at least that's how I mentally picture their response.  Well if you're a Belieber, get ready to froth some more now.

Justin was in a Diner eating when he noticed some cops eating and decided to pay their way:

Bieber was eating at the Comfort Diner in NYC when he noticed a few officers eating next to him … so when it came time to pay up, Justin coughed up the dough for their tab — around $200.

The officers walked over and thanked Bieber for hooking them up … then snapped a pic — which Justin posted on Shots — so they could prove to their family the whole thing actually went down.

Joesph Gordon-Levitt becomes our latest caped crusader

@ DAN-isms.com

Joesph Gordon-Levitt is one of my favourite people.  He's put together a new TV show HitRecord and in the latest episode he works with Anne Hathaway  to put together a piece called Sidekicks.  Check out it below, it looks pretty good.

Ryan Renolds and Blake Lively throw gender-norms out the window



Celeb-bait
@ DAN-isms.com


A conversation I semi-regularly have with my other half is that gender distinction and difference is something we enforce, even before our children are born.  By that I specifically mean that when we name our children, we specifically distinguish between "boy names" and "girl names".  Sure, there are names that are considered to be uni-sex, but giving your child a uni-sex name isn't quite the same as awarding them one that is deemed to be for the opposite gender.

Blake and Ryan have had a girl, and named it James.

My partner and I debated whether this was something we could ever do, but I don't think we currently live in a world where anyone other than a celebrity could do this.  The reason I say that is that it's incredibly likely that an attempt at breaking this gender norm will mean that your child is likely to spend their entire youth getting their face kicked in, or mercilessly teased, a situation they would most likely blame you for. 

In my own experience I grew up with a boy called Kimberly.  He may have been the only guy who got punched in the face as often as I did - which was constantly.

Now if you're rich, famous and everyone wants to be your friend, maybe those kids don't have to deal with those issues.

What do you think of their decision to award what is considered a masculine name to a girl?  Do you think the child will suffer for that decision or will they be fine?

Cumberbatch off the market


Celeb-bait
@ DAN-isms.com


Millions of legs snapped shut forever at the news that Benedict Cumberbatch is officially off the market.  Benny married long-time girlfriend Sophie Hunter on Valentine's Day at a ceremony that was held on the Isle of Wight. 

Seriously, what is with celebrities getting married on islands lately? I still think that Johnny Depp wins this competition, I mean, he owns his island... plus, he gets to be Mr Amber Heard at the end of that ceremony.

Justin Bieber blew his damn leg off


Celeb-bait
@ DAN-isms.com


Ok, so that title is tooootally overstating things, but it's been a slow week for celebrity-gent gossip.

Justin Bieber egged his neighbours house a while ago and was required to do anger management, community service and pay a fine of $80,900.    He did some of the anger management, paid the fine and but didn't do a day of community service and the reason why?  He hurt his ankle playing soccer (pic below).

Kanye and Taylor Swift to collaborate


Celeb-bait
@ DAN-isms.com


Kanye says he's going to collaborate with Taylor Swift, and Beck and anyone else with enough fans to bring him some bank.  At least that's how I interpret this quote from his interview with Ryan SeaCrest (see interview above):

George Clooney having relationship issues already?

Never a good sign when you won't make eye contact while posing for 'together' pics

Celeb-bait
@ DAN-isms.com


When I found out that George Clooney was marrying a world-class lawyer I put my hands over my face and just shook my head.  George's wife is a world class human rights lawyer, you know what that probably means - that she has world class divorce lawyer friends. I don't care who are, you don't marry someone who can become murderously, irrationally angry at you, then pursue in a court of law for free. Not to mention... why would you ever leave Stacey Kiebler?

Anyway, what's happening between George and Amal?

Kanye's Grammys swing,hit and miss


Celeb-bait
@ DAN-isms.com


Probably the most talked about event of the Grammy's was the Kanye fake-out when Beck beat out Beyonce for a Grammy, it was unfortunately overshadowed by his speech at the end of the show.  Check it out below.

The Kanye Swing..
Kanye walks up to stage as if he is about block Beck recieving his award in a repeat performance of his protest at Taylor Swift beating Beyonce.


The Kanye Hit...
Check out everyone's reaction, particularly Jay-Z and Beyonce, to his fake-out.  Everyone's so proud of Kanye; Kanye's learned, Kanye's grown - yay Kanye!

...and The Kanye Miss
And then after the show, we get this... Ah Kanye, you were almost there.

Pharrell's Grammy reminder #HandsUpDontShoot


Celeb-bait
@ DAN-isms.com


While I could have done without the Christian shout-out at the end of his performance, Pharrell's performance at the Grammy's was the events stand-out event of the evening.  I don't say that just because he put such an original spin on his number one single 'Happy' but for the subtle reminder of the events surrounding the shooting of Michael Brown, an event which spurred the hashtag #HandsUpDontShoot

Nice work Pharrell (video of performance below):

I suspect Jamie Dornan hates promoting 50 Shades of Grey


Celeb-bait
@ DAN-isms.com


I'm no expert on body language, I mean I know the basics... like, if a girl slaps you in the face and calls you a loser in the middle of the club - no - she probably does not want you to buy her that drink.  Jamie Dornan's facial expression (see below) while promoting his new movie 50 Shades of Grey looks a lot like the face you make after you cop that slap though.  You can see him basically praying to whatever skygod will listen, "please let the earth swallow me whole, please let the ea-"

RiRi is banging Leo

@ DAN-isms.com


Rihanna it appears likes her men lean and mean which may be a problem because apparently Leonardo Dicapro is now tapping that. Word is that RiRi thinks her man has a bit of the pudge, and by bit, I mean he doesn't have a six pack.

Geesh Rihanna, if you're using 'lacking a six-pack' as evidence of having a 'bit of pudge', 9/10's of Australia is morbidly obese.  Anway, Ok Magazine had this to say:

Jamie Dornan & Dakota Johnson for Glamour


Celeb-bait
@ DAN-isms.com


I'm almost certain that the 50 Shades of Grey movie will be massively disappointing in all the ways that book to movie conversions almost always are.  If you enjoyed the book, odds are it was because you were able to do something fantastic in your head with how the characters moved, and felt and acted... and rarely does that transpose onto the screen well.

But then again, I thought the writing in the book was reminiscent of a small child being let loose with crayons and if anyone cocked their head and pursed their lip one more time... let's just say by chapter six I was pretty sure I would stab someone... so you should probably ignore my opinion on all things 50 Shades of Grey related.

Anywhooooo the two stars in the movie had some snaps taken, images below:

Eddie returns to Saturday Night Live


Celeb-bait
@ DAN-isms.com


Eddie Murphy is returning to Saturday Night Live for the 40th year anniversary, airing on April 15th.    Personally I think Eddie Murphy is the greatest thing to ever leave the show and know most of his Delirious and Raw standup routine by heart. 

When asked why it took so long before he went back to the show he had this to say:

It’s just timing. It just never worked out where the timing was right for me to do it … They’re actually having a 40th anniversary I think in two weeks. I’m going to that, and that’ll be the first time I’ve been back since I left.
