The 300 Hottie Factory

The 300 was bloody good fun, with cheesy lines delivered with full-testosterone action by Gerard Butler as King Lionidas. My favorite Spartan was Leonidas' short, scruffy, blond sidekick and narrator Dilios, played by David Wenham who sadly lost one of his baby blues in the battle, but kind of talks too much. But he's like a bard and narrator, so I guess I'll have to put up with his monologues in bed. TJ liked one of the cowardly Arcadians who looked like Jake Dakota's dad, apparently. While all of The 300 had nice scruff, their buff humps were not covered by fur, but still fun to look at.

So apparently Xerxes was a giant drag queen, with an army of Africans, Mongol-looking people, and lots of mean deformed people too. And he was probably the reason the Dire Rhinoceros' went exctinct since he used them in battle but the Spartans killed them all. Oh, and he had wizards with grenades, and the Spice Girls were in his orgy entourage too.

Everyone in Leonidas' army was cut, buff, bearded but with no body hair to speak of. They also had incredibly big mouths, and roared a lot too. Not that's a bad thing. And that's how The 300 went.
Rock Creek Parkway tunnel
I was taking pictures the other day and here's one of my favorite rushes - biking through the tunnel on the Rock Creek Parkway near the National Zoo. You're supposed to walk your bike through it but that's no fun.

Did you recognize Xerxes from Lost? The same actor plays Paulo.

Be careful! Seems so scary.

My favorite was Daxos (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0687091/photogallery-ss-0). Maybe it was just him in that harness throughout the movie that did it for me. Why did Xerxes sound like a G'ould?

I can't help but think that no matter how buff I get (I figure I have at least another two weeks in the gym before I look like your typical Spartan), I would tire of (and probably chaffe from) pretty quickly the leather speedo and red cape ensemble.

Great photo! The upper right corner is spectacular although not as spectacular as Dillos' chest.

I swear this movie was made strictly for gay men...we're the only ones willing to sit through such bad cinema just to look/fantasize over the hot, hot, scruffy men.
