Review below from Muumuse. com
“Flesh” is dark and glitchy and probably the sexiest thing that he’s ever done, as an artist. (As a person, the sexiest thing Simon Curtis has ever done is exist, because, well, if you had seen him prowl around a dingy nightclub in Brooklyn at 4 a.m. like I did on one very memorable night in April, you’d quickly realize that no one will ever be quite as sexy as Simon.)The song has shades of Britney’s “Inside Out,” and also evokes the grimy industrial fuck-the-pain-away melancholy of Darren Hayes’ The Tension and the Spark (“I Like the Way,” in particular), before exploding into a thunderous house track just shy of the three-minute mark, a shift which injects the song with a very different kind of energy.As a sonic experience, it’s much more innovative than “Superhero,” which was fairly straightforward by comparison. “Flesh” takes risks, with the explicit sexuality of its lyrics, with the processed falsetto vocals, with the sheer shameless sleaziness of the production — and Simon’s willingness to take those risks (as assisted by longtime producer Jeff “Jadion” Wells, whose work here is as excellent as it’s ever been) makes the song one of the more exciting things I've heard this year. If it’s any indication of what to expect from his forthcoming album RA, then those of us who have been following his career for years will have much to celebrate.Basically, the song is fucking amazing, and if you haven’t bought it on iTunes yet, please take the opportunity to do so now.
"Last Sunday, the boys and I decided to take in a movie. Now that Jr. is older, we're actually able to see some live action films. We saw a few trailers for Pacific Rim and decided to give it try. Even though it appeared to be a Transformer rip-off, the fact that Guillermo del Toro was the writer/director made it worth checking out.
It was actually pretty good. A definite entertaining summer, action movie. Luckily for Hubby and I, there was some eye candy in the form of Charlie Hunnam. He played the main character, Raleigh Becket. Check out the pics from the film... " -- Yummy of the Day

"Gimme a Break!" by Nell Carter
Gimme a Break!
Love this Broadway-ready belter by series star Carter, who builds and builds in a sort of laid-back "And I'm Telling You I'm Not Going" redux.
Nicola Formichetti (Italian pronunciation: [niˌkɔːla fɔɾmiˈketti]; born 31 May 1977) is an Italian/Japanese fashion director and fashion editor. He is most widely known as the new artistic director for the Italian fashion label DIESEL, and for being a frequent collaborator with singer-songwriter and performance artist Lady Gaga. He worked two years (September 2010 - April 2013) with the French fashion house, MUGLER as artistic director. Formichetti is also known as fashion director of Vogue Hommes Japan, is a contributing editor of several other fashion magazines, and is fashion director for the clothing company Uniqlo. In November 2010 he was named one of the "most influential creative forces working in fashion today." The following month he was awarded the Isabella Blow Award for Fashion Creator at the 2010 British Fashion Awards.
The son of a Japanese stewardess and an Italian pilot, Formichetti was born in Japan and grew up in Rome and Tokyo, attempting to assimilate in both cultures. As a child he trained as a classical pianist (and still plays for relaxation). But moving to London became his great desire and he used the excuse of attending an architecture school to which he was accepted in order to get there. Formichetti has explained that instead of attending he "literally walked in the front door of the architecture school and then ran out of the back one to go clubbing for three years." He became a student of the nightlife and street fashions, and began working at a fashionable boutique called 'The Pineal Eye' where he would become art director and head buyer for two years. Formichetti is openly gay.

Quinn Christopher Jaxon
This one's earliest Model Mayhem listing opened as follows:
"Hi Everyone!! My name is Quinn Christopher Jaxon and I'm a dancer, model, actor, stuntman, and all-around entertainer who dreams of being on a Big Billboard!"
Quinn-JaxonHis enthusiasm, and his physical talents knowing no bounds, it wasn't long before he'd been picked up by Andrew Christian to appear in the
full slate of the designer's softcore-pornographic Web spots, which allowed Jaxon to show off not only his movie-star charm and uninhibited dance moves (where does a straight dude learn to booty pop?) but also his ample rear end and a third leg that must make Christian's tightie anything-but-whities more like supertightie.
Since then Jaxon has done private modeling that includes full nudity and erections, go-go danced in clubs , booked bachelorette parties and taken legit stage work (he's a brilliant dancer, not only of the booty-poppin' variety). This full schedule might help to explain why he's been so hard to nail down for an interview when I'm in L.A.! He seems, along with Colby Melvin and Benjamin Godfre, to be at the forefront of a new wave of modeling that has few rules and that places the model's fate in his own hands.

Eric van der Woodsen
Eric van der Woodsen (spelled Erik in the novels) is a fictional character from the book series Gossip Girl and the television series of the same name, in which he is portrayed by Connor Paolo.
In contrast to the novels, Eric's character is more complex in the show, showing a mature understanding of family and relationships but faces the same troubles as most teenagers have. Alessandra Stanley of The New York Times mentions his character's deviation from the novels from "an object of female lust" to one of "...psychotherapy." but notes his strong bond with Serena, stating how he "is misunderstood by all but his caring, if troubled, sister." Despite his mature persona, Eric is no stranger to the problems that most teens face as his stay at the Ostroff Center, a rehabilitation facility, is a result of his constant loneliness and his mother's many unstable marriages. Connor Paolo notes that Eric's lack of a father figure contributed to his suicide attempt.
At the beginning of the season, Eric has been living at the Ostroff Center, a high-class mental facility. Serena frequently visits him after coming back. As well as trying to convince the doctors and her mother Lilly to let him out. They let Eric out temporarily, during the Ivy League Mixer, where he develops a friendship with Jenny Humphrey. After Blair Waldorf humiliates his sister, telling the whole school she was attending the Ostroff Center during her absence having mistakenly seeing photos of Serena entering the center, Eric tells Blair he was the one attending the mental center and shows her the scars on his wrists from his suicide attempt.
At Blair's annual sleepover, Blair dares Jenny to break into the Ostroff Center and take Eric out for the night. Jenny and Blair succeed and they take him to a bar downtown. Lily is made aware of his disappearance and begins to panic. She quickly informs Rufus, whose son, Dan, is on a date with Serena, after she cannot get hold of her. They contact the couple to make sure Eric is alright and to bring him home. Later, Lily realizes that Eric is ready to come out of the medical center. He is present during Thanksgiving dinner at the Humphrey's apartment when Lily and Rufus reveal they had a previous relationship years ago. Due to his mother's engagement to billionaire Bart Bass, he develops a close friendship with Chuck Bass, whom he soon sees as a brother.
He tries to warn Jenny about her new boyfriend Asher Hornsby (Jesse Swenson) but she mistakes this for Eric being in love with her. In the same episode, Dan and Georgina Sparks see Asher making out with someone outside of school. The news becomes public on Gossip Girl, and Jenny denies the rumor by saying she lost her virginity to Asher. Which Eric knows is untrue. During a dinner with his family, Georgina outs him to back at Serena. Eric's homosexuality upsets Lily, who blames herself for Eric getting institutionalized. Serena comforts him, and learns that Eric already came out to Chuck before her because he knew Chuck wouldn't judge him. He also explains that he had a relationship with someone while at the Ostroff Center, but now believed that it was over. At Asher and Jenny's party, Eric helps Blair dethrone Jenny by revealing that Asher was indeed gay, and that they were involved. Asher denies this, but Blair sends a Gossip Girl blast with Eric and Asher's emails. He and Lilly later reconcile.
During summer 2008, Eric is staying with his sister and grandmother in The Hamptons. He receives a call from Jenny who tells him, she needs help to get in the Vitamin White Party. She apologizes to him about the incident with Asher and they become friends again. Eric introduces Tinsley Mortimer to Jenny to extend her contacts in the fashion industry.
After the school year starts, although Serena complains about Lily's new marriage and their new house rules, Eric thinks they should give the marriage a chance. Later, Eric introduces Jonathan Whitney (Matt Doyle) as his new boyfriend. They break up after Bart tells Eric that Jonathan has been cheating on him. Eric lodges Jenny secretly in the Bass-van der Woodsen penthouse and goes with her to make the paperwork to divorce her parents.
Eric then discovers that Bart hired his private detective, Andrew Taylor, to do research about his, Lily's, and Serena's past. He discovers that Lily was also institutionalized at a French sanatorium and that she didn't tell him so that she could be strong for him. Bart's actions convince Lily to celebrate Thanksgiving with the Humphreys.
After Bart's death, Eric comes back with Jonathan and tries to convince Chuck to go back to their penthouse. Chuck and Eric officially go from close friends to brothers after Lily adopts her late husband's son.
During summer 2009, Eric is in his grandmother's house with Jenny, Dan, and Rufus while Lily is in Montecito taking care of his and Serena's grandmother, CeCe. He observes Jenny's speech to the rest of Constance that end the school hierarchy.
During Jenny's gradual transformation as an Upper East Side Queen, he falls victim to Jenny and her cronies when a battle over the steps that Jonathan inadvertently started and ends with Eric being splattered with yogurt. The Halloween party that followed after had Jonathan being egged at the club opening, enraging Eric, who tells Jenny he wants nothing to do with her. Eric sabotages Jenny's Cotillion by falsely sending a text to Graham Collins, the date Jenny wants using her phone which claims that Jonathan will be taking her to Cotillion. He joins forces with Blair, whom Jenny also offends publicly, in making Kira Abernathy, a Constance student whom Jenny regularly ignores, a threat to Jenny's reign as Queen. Blair gives Kira a makeover and Eric blackmails Graham into becoming Kira's escort instead of Jenny. Jenny soon endures public humiliation but manages to gain their respect by taking Nate as her escort for Cotillion. These events cause Jonathan to break up with Eric as he claims Eric has changed now that he's resorted to scheming with Blair. After Cotillion, Jenny leaves with the other Upper East Side Queen Bees and leaves unaware that Eric has been responsible for her public embarrassment.
At Thanksgiving, Jenny discovers that Eric was the one behind her public embarrassment at Cotillion which sets her getting her revenge on him. Eric teams up with Kira and attempts to ruin Jenny by buying one of his accomplices the same bag as her and have the girls turn against her. This fails as Jenny reveals two identical bags handing them over to his accomplices, falsely apologizing for her actions but claiming that one of the girls whom Erica bought a bag for spoiled her surprise. Eric and Jenny then to a truce after Serena's car accident.
It is revealed in "Inglourious Bassterds" that Eric was in Japan and ends up meeting a potential love-interest named Elliot (Luke Kleintank) during a game of assassin on Nate's birthday. On the day of Blair's maid's, Dorota, wedding, Eric wonders if Elliot is gay and discovers that he has a girlfriend during the wedding reception. Elliot then confides in Eric that he is bisexual, indicating that Eric still has a chance with him when Elliot tells him that his girlfriend left out of jealousy.
Eric's relationship with his father, William, is also observed when he coldly rejects him for not being there for him. He informs him that he is gay and had been institutionalized.
His friendship with Jenny is once again tested when she reveals that she aided his father's escape from the police. He coldly states that no one is forcing Jenny to stay and that she can leave if she wants to. Eric is the first to discover that Jenny lost her virginity to Chuck and tries to comfort a dismayed Jenny, who is sent away to finish high school in Hudson.
In "The Undergraduates", Chuck tries to make amends with Rufus and Eric, by coming to Fashion Week with his new girlfriend, Eva. Eric, however, informs Rufus of Chuck's season 1 assault on Jenny and says that his brother has been given too many chances to redeem himself, signaling the end of their once-close bond.
When Jenny returns to the Upper East Side briefly for an interview with Tim Gunn, Eric attempts to help her make a good impression and keep her away from both Chuck and Blair. Later, he and Dan scheme against Blair and Chuck to get Jenny to come back for their parents' anniversary. The plan fails when Blair and Chuck sign a treaty and come to a truce. After Dan steals the treaty from Nate, Eric backs out of the plan. Eric unknowingly leads his parents to Blair's party where Dan's plan is about to go through, thinking Dan had abandoned the plan.
Eric is present when Serena is admitted to the Ostroff Center. He is proud of her for going, but does not believe her when she denies overdosing. He is also present when Serena confronts Lily.
Eric is angry at his mother for what happened to Ben Donovan and Bass Industries. When man from the Empire calls saying the judge from Ben's case was there, Eric calls Serena, which makes her determined to take Lily down.
In "Damien Darko", it is revealed that Eric and Elliot broke up and he has been lying to his mother about being with Elliot when he has really been with Damien. When Jonathan goes with Eric to the W party, Eric ditches Jonathan to meet up with Damien. However, earlier Ben had seen Eric with Damien and called Serena. When they walk in on Eric and Damien, the two pretend to be couple and Ben lectures Eric about making bad choices. Eric promises not to see Damien anymore. Rufus confronts Eric, asking if he bought drugs from Damien and Eric says he bought some pills, but realizes it was stupid and promises to stop. But while he keeps that promise, when Damien calls Eric after Ben warns him away from Serena's family, Eric agrees to hang out with him.
Rufus reveals in the season 5 premiere "Yes, Then Zero" that Jenny and Eric have moved to London to attend Saint Martins. During the episode "Memoirs of an Invisible Dan", it's mentioned that in Dan's semi-autobiographical novel Inside Nate and Eric's literary counterparts were meshed together.
Eric returns briefly for the series finale.
TV Line's Michael Ausiello had reported that Connor Paolo had originally been offered to become a series regular for the show's second season but kindly declined. “I’m very happy with my position on the show and I have no interest in changing it,” and that he may not be ready to face the same challenges as his other castmates stating that “Watching Blake [Lively] and Penn [Badgely] and the things they have to deal with as [a full-time cast members]… because they are on the posters and they are the face of the show, is not something I’m totally ready for right now.”

National Underwear Day is this Monday, August 5th. The holiday, originally created by Freshpair, kicked off ten years ago to not just shine light on your unmentionables, but also to promote “public displays of confidence”. This year, the company is trying to gather more than 2,270 people in New York City’s Times Square between 5:00-7:30PM, in order to break a Guinness World Record for the most people in their underwear in one place.
Guidelines for all participants can be found here. Here is what you need to know about National Underwear Day: “Men must be wearing underpants, boxers, boxer briefs or briefs. They cannot be wearing shirts, undershirts or jockstraps.”
It should be noted that the event takes place in a particularly family-friendly location. Public displays of affection with other participants are discouraged, but you could always meet up with someone you met and then take it back to one of your places once the event’s over! That would be quite the icebreaker (and a nice way to check him out and ensure that you click both physically and personally).
Of course, if you can’t make it to New York this Monday, there are plenty of other ways you can take part in National Underwear Day. Right this moment, you can head over to the site, scroll down and vote for your favorite public display of underwear confidence. (There are some really cute pics in the running!) You can also tweet @freshpair with the hashtag #NUD2013 and let them know how you’respending the day. Pictures are encouraged. But mostly so I can look at them.
“Throughout the years, thousands of people have written us and shared acts of confidence,”Freshpair writes on their site. “We've heard from cancer survivors struggling to regain their lives, men and women suffering with poor body image, and young and old embracing their sexuality. This year National Underwear Day is about YOU.”

Ah, Shelter – one of the most beloved gay romances of recent years, it also features a rhapsodically sweet love scene the first time that its gay surfer dude lovers (Brad Rowe and Trevor Wright) seal the deal. Here’s the scene:
Best as we can tell, this is from the Russia vs. Germany match at the FIVB World League tournament, held earlier this month in Argentina. But the video is only making the rounds after appearing on this Brazilian blog.
Russia would go on to take the gold, but I think we all know who the real winner was.
