yet more vapid sci-fi lusting

Joe FlanniganI'm actually kinda crazed at work today, so no rabid, mouth-frothing rant today. SORRY!

So instead I will talk about scruff and chest hair patterns. Many blessings to my patron from Quinnipiac University who sends me this awesome hi-rez headshot of the hunky Joe Flannigan, who plays Lt. Col. John Sheppard on Stargate: Atlantis. Everyone repeat after me, with high voices: "He's so DREAMY! 'sigh!'" On this Friday's new episode of SG-Atlantis, entitled 'Epiphany', Sheppard sports a nearly-full beard, or well-advanced scruff, depending on how you look at it. Some chest fur teases too. Quinnipiac says the picture to the left is 'scruffy' but I consider it mere stubble. It's scruff if I can bite it with my teeth, as I would with Joe Flannigan's scruff in Friday's episode.

Joe is currently on my desktop both at home and at work. I used to have this huge, hi-res photo of Jamie Bamber on my desktop but the image looked kind of spooky...I kept feeling like Jamie Bamber was stalking me or something. It's really not a good feeling thinking Jamie Bamber is stalking you, even though it sounds like a good idea.

BAMBER TIME!As you may have guessed, I'm more of a face person. And scruff. And I can never stop looking at that little 'V' in a person's collar line (present on both pictures here) which may or may not give promise to the presence of chest fur. That's what I look at. When someone tells me, "Oh, that guy is sooo hung! Look at that bulge!" I'll have to admit I'm usually the last one to notice - I have been looking above the shoulders, not below.

Now Kyan Douglas on last night's episode of Queer Eye was downright scruffy, fyi. I'd link to something but the official Bravo TV website is fucked up at the moment. Some webmaster in NYC doesn't know what he/she's doing! Cross-browser compatibility, anyone? Oh wait, I promised not to rant today.

Gurl and I are developing a new chest hair rating system, somewhat based on my B.H.I. scale (Body Hair Index) . While B.H.I. rates how hairy a man is, my new chest hair scale will help gay men and women describe the chest hair patterns on a guy, which until now has been hard to relate to friends and family. I have yet to name the system, but will use the suit symbols on playing cards, that is the club ♣, spade ♠, diamond and heart ♥. Again, I'm a little busy today, but a full graphical depiction of my chest hair scaling system will be in place by this weekend.

The body hair pattern stuff was studied by physical anthropologists in the 1950s. I remember going to the Smithsonian in 1988 and they still had their exhibit on male body hair up at that time, right next to the "man of soap."

You know, back when I was a boy, "they" promised me hair in my late 30's. Oh and Jet Packs for easy personal travel. Do I have either, uh no!
They can send a man to the moon, but cure (yes I mean cure" receeding hair).....come on, where are their priorities. :)
PS - love the hair on both those men!

I am a huge fan of the 'V' especially if it is a little indented (just a lil bit) and the hair kindof creeps up the neck and pokes out a little - almost teasing you as to whether or not the man behind the shirt is a full-on furball or just a hottie with a cute tease and a treasure trail... to me that is the essence of sexy :-)

I'm diggin' the Flannigan. It's kind of like Jamie Denton meets Duchovny. I wish I liked sci-fi. I call that little V thing a whiff.
