A Hanes Homage: Zach Clemens by NICKET

From: Favorite Hunks & Other Things
 'Wait'll We Get Our Hanes Off You!'

 When shooting men in their undies, many photographers and models choose popular and sexy brands like 2(x)ist, Calvin Klein, Timoteo or Andrew Christian to wrap their packages in. Although those are all great brands, many of us have a soft spot, or a hard one, for a good ole pair of Hanes. There are many reasons for this, cost just the beginning. Most of us, after graduating from our superhero Underoos, remember getting our first, 3 or 6 pack of the multi-colored Hanes briefs, for many of us, under the Christmas tree each year. 

 Although we may not have appreciated those ole Hanes at first, they served many of us very well. They joined us through school dances, unplanned pop-up erections in history class, and many other memorable events during our transition through our teen years. For many of us, they were also excitedly removed the first time our penis made it's first public appearance during our first sexual encounter. We all had our favorite pair, usually a color. Most of us convinced ourselves that particular pair our color was lucky, and wore them whenever we thought we needed that extra boost of confidence. 

As much as we groaned about getting our 6 pack of Hanes at 11 or 12, by the time we had to buy our own undies, they were a welcome delivery from Santa. That is why I was thrilled with Nicholas's (NICKET) choice to use so many pairs of Hanes in this shoot with FH Favorite Zach Clemens. I was doubly blessed when last month Nicholas sent on two recent shoots with Zach. I featured the first set, last month as part of FH's 10th. (10: Zach by NICKET)
 In that first shoot, Zach was actually donning sexy pairs of Calvin's and Timoteo's but when on location, it was Hanes all the way. Zach looks amazing in his Hanes boxers, briefs and thongs and each of the colors, black, red, grey, blue or camo look perfect against his skin. Partly it may be his undies, but in or or out of underwear, Zach knows how to interact with the camera, and Nicholas knows that although Zach's body is hot, his personality and incredible smile are what makes him so special. 

'It is always a pleasure working with Zach on a bright summer day. He is in his natural element in the outdoors enjoying the sun without any clothing to interfere. He definitely prefers the freedom of outdoor shoots and exploring his surroundings, it helps to make the photo shoot more natural as he explores the possibilities of a location. This was especially true for this shoot as we went to a new SF location for the shoot.'

 Although I wear several brands of underwear, for my day to day work life, I still have a few pairs of Hanes. My favorites are, and have always been, my dark purple briefs. I know there is no logic to it, but it just seems my days go a little easier at work when I'm wearing the purple. I don't know if Zach has a favorite color, but I think I like him best in the black briefs. 

Breather: Antonin by Mount Photography

From: Favorite Hunks & Other Things
Regular readers of FH are no doubt familiar with the remarkable imagery of Gibraltar based photographer Mark Montovio from Mount Photography. I have featured Mark's work often and am always impressed with the models he shoots and how flawless his final images consistently appear to turn out. Creating flawless, even with the incredible Antonin, wasn't easy, especially considering the circumstances.

In some ways, these images are perfect FH's current theme of highlighting what goes on the behind the scenes. These images were taken very quickly, with poor lighting and zero planning. In fact, these images were quickly snapped while the main photographer shooting Antonin was taking a breather between shots. Mark had arranged for fellow photographer, and another FH Favorite, Andrew Bowman to shoot both Antonin and another model Cristian. (both of whom I have featured before).

 'I just took some shots in-between whenever Andy was gathering strength or swapping models!' 

 Even without hours of planning, Mark's skill behind the lens created some amazing images. So amazing in fact, some of the images helped garnered Mark an impressive 5 wins in Model Mayhem's pic of the day contest in early July.

Deep-Fried Turkey 
[caution: can be dangerous]


1 lb of salt
1 lb of brown sugar
6 qt of boiling water
3 lb of ice
4 qt of cold water (or enough water to cover turkey entirely)
13-15 lb turkey (no larger than 15 lb)
4 1/2 gal of peanut oil


Turkey deep frying kit, which should include the following:
Large pot (30 qt)
Hook or basket or stainless steel kitchen utensil with wide bottom, long handle and looped top
S hook with handle
Oven mitts or rotisserie grade oven mitts
Propane burner with sturdy stand that will hold your large pot
Deep fry thermometer


In a large pot, container or cooler with a lid, combine salt, brown sugar and boiling water to make the brine. Once the salt and brown sugar have dissolved, cool down with ice. Place your turkey into the brine mixture, add more cold water to cover your turkey entirely. Weight down the turkey with something heavy and cover. Place the turkey in a cool place or refrigerator and let it brine for 8-16 hours. 

Remove the turkey from the brine, discard the brine. Pat dry the turkey. Make sure it’s entirely dry inside and out, border on very dry. Let it sit at room temp for 30 minutes prior to frying. 

While the turkey is coming to room temp, prepare your deep frying pot. The pot should be large enough to hold the turkey, oil and have enough room to contain the oil once it starts bubbling (recommend 30 quart pot). See note below: Make sure the deep frying pot is clean and dry, any moisture in the pot will make the oil pop when it starts heating up. Pour the peanut oil into the pot. You should have enough oil to just cover the turkey. Set over high heat on an outside propane burner. Bring the temperature of the oil to 350°F/177°C. 

While the oil is heating up, prepare your turkey to submerge into the oil. If you are using a turkey deep frying kit, use all the equipment provided (i.e. hook/basket, s-hook, retrieval handle). If not, take a stainless steel kitchen utensil with a wide bottom, long handle and looped top. Take the kitchen utensil and push the handle through the neck of the turkey. You want the wide part of the utensil to rest inside the turkey cavity. Take an s-hook with a handle attachment and loop it through the loop part of the kitchen utensil. Wipe down the turkey again to make sure there is no moisture. Turkey is ready. 

Once the temperature of the oil has reached 350°F/177°C, slowly and gently lower the turkey into the oil. SLOWLY AND GENTLY. Fry the turkey for 3 minutes per pound. For a 15 lb turkey, this will take 45 minutes. Make sure the oil temp is maintained at 350°F/177°C. After 45 minutes, turn off your propane burner and then gently remove the turkey from the oil. Place the turkey on a large baking sheet or carving board and check the temperature. Right out of the fryer, the breast meat should be at 150°F/66°C and will reach 160°F/71°C due to carry over cooking. Let the turkey rest for 30 minutes before carving. Carve as desire and enjoy. 


Determine the amount of oil you will need before you start. This turkey and pot required 4 1/12 gallons of peanut oil, you may need more or less. To determine the correct amount, place the turkey in the pot you will be using to fry. Fill it with water until it has just covered your turkey, that water level should also be at least 5 inches below the rim of your pot. Remove the turkey and see where the water levels off, this is the amount of oil you will need to fry the turkey. If the oil level is NOT 5 inches below the rim of your pot, use a taller pot. If too much oil is used, it will spill over when the turkey is lowered and cause a fire. If you like, as a precaution, turn off the propane burner before you add the turkey to the hot oil. 

Oil will be hot for a few hours after frying. Do not touch or dispose of until fully cooled.

No matter what your email service is or what you think of their security, Yahoo shows that there is no customer loyalty when it comes to the NSA’s command.
From: Badwolf Blog
I talk about security on my personal site a lot. There’s a whole page of different stuff to consider when you’re trying to keep your secrets secret. I talk about best practices for email (ProtonMail), for messenger apps (Telegram), for texting (Just Don’t Do It), and what things an average person might do to protect themselves in the long and short run.

But the truth of the matter is, if somebody wants to come for you, they will. As we just watched with this last year of election coverage, even the top echelons of federal government don’t understand even the basics of information security, or that all-important fact that nothing ever really goes away. In fact, most people are so shortsighted and uninformed about how email even works that I’ve had variations of this conversation:

“Please don’t send me messages like this.”

“Oh, it’s OK. I’ll just delete it when we’re done.”

“OK, but that just deletes messages in your account. That doesn’t make them go away in my inbox. Or in google’s cache.”

“Right but I’ll delete them. They’ll be gone.”

with many, many people, for years now.
There is no “deleting.” That isn’t real. Information doesn’t go away the way you think it does, and if you don’t want someone to read it, you can’t ever type it and send it.

My choice to move to ProtonMail as my email provider was based on the idea that I’m going to do the best I possibly can to make sure my personal information stays personal. I know that if somebody really wants to hack me, they’re going to. But I can do my best to make it very difficult for them. And I think I have a duty to protect my information, especially as it relates to clients and friends. It’s why I don’t keep an address book or save contacts, and why I don’t want to text or talk on the phone with you.

In an effort to help people be more realistic about their email, and how they contact people they may not want the whole world to know they’re contacting, I’d like to share this post from the ProtonMail blog about Yahoo’s recent admission and what it means for GMail, AOL, or any other email service that has definitely already given up all your secrets to the NSA at this point. This is an important read, but it will be uncomfortable and upsetting:

What Yahoo’s NSA Surveillance Means for Email Privacy
Updated October 7, 2016 with additional clarification and analysis of Yahoo’s denial

Dear ProtonMail Community,

Two weeks ago, we published a security advisory regarding the mass hacking of Yahoo. Unfortunately, due to recent events, we are issuing a second advisory regarding all US email providers.

What happened?

This week, it was revealed that as a result of a secret US government directive, Yahoo was forced to implement special surveillance software to scan all Yahoo Mail accounts at the request of the NSA and FBI. Sometime in early 2015, Yahoo secretly modified their spam and malware filters to scan all incoming email messages for the phrases in the court order and then siphoned those messages off to US intelligence. This is significant for several reasons:

• This is the first known incident where a US intelligence directive has indiscriminately targeted all accounts as opposed to just the accounts of suspects. Effectively, all 500 million+ Yahoo Mail users were presumed to be guilty.

• Instead of searching stored messages, this directive forced Yahoo to scan incoming messages in real-time.

• Because ALL incoming email messages were targeted, this program spied on every person who emailed a Yahoo Mail account, violating the privacy of users around the world who may not even have been using a US email service.

What does this mean for US tech companies?

This is a terrible precedent and ushers in a new era of global mass surveillance. It means that US tech companies that serve billions of users around the world can now be forced to act as extensions of the US surveillance apparatus. The problem extends well beyond Yahoo. As was reported earlier, Yahoo did not fight the secret directive because Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer and the Yahoo legal team did not believe that they could successfully resist the directive.

We believe that Yahoo’s assessment is correct. If it was possible to fight the directive, Yahoo certainly would have done so since they previously fought against secret FISA court orders in 2008. It does not make sense that US surveillance agencies would serve Yahoo Mail with such an order but ignore Gmail, the world’s largest email provider, or Outlook. There is no doubt that the secret surveillance software is also present in Gmail and Outlook, or at least there is nothing preventing Gmail and Outlook from being forced to comply with a similar directive in the future. From a legal perspective, there is nothing that makes Yahoo particularly vulnerable, or Google particularly invulnerable.

Google and Microsoft have come out to deny they participated in US government mandated mass surveillance, but under a National Security Letter (NSL) gag order, Google and Microsoft would have no choice but to deny the allegations or risk breaking US law (our analysis of Yahoo’s denial is at the bottom of this post). Again ,there is no conceivable reason US intelligence would target Yahoo but ignore Gmail, so we must consider this to be the most probable scenario, particularly since gag orders have become the norm rather than the exception.

In effect, the US government has now officially co-opted US tech companies to perform mass surveillance on all users, regardless of whether they are under US jurisdiction or not. Given the huge amount of data that Google has, this is a truly scary proposition.

How does this impact ProtonMail?

ProtonMail’s secure email service is based in Switzerland and all our servers are located in Switzerland, so all user data is maintained under the protection of Swiss privacy laws. ProtonMail cannot be compelled to perform mass surveillance on our users, nor be compelled to act on behalf of US intelligence. ProtonMail also utilizes end-to-end encryption which means we do not have the capability to read user emails in the first place, so we couldn’t hand over user email data even if we wanted to.

However, since email is an open system, any unencrypted email that goes out of ProtonMail, to Yahoo Mail for example, could potentially have been swept up by these mass surveillance programs and sent to US government agencies. This is why if you want to avoid having your communications scanned and saved by US government agencies, it is important to invite friends, family, and colleagues to use non-US email accounts such as ProtonMail or other email services offered by European companies.

What can the rest of the world do about this?

Unfortunately, the tech sector today is entirely dominated by US companies. Just like Google has a monopoly on search, the US government has a near monopoly on mass surveillance. Even without US government pressure, most US tech companies also have perverse economic incentives to slowly chip away at digital privacy.

This week, we have again seen how easily the massive amounts of private data retained by US tech companies can be abused by US intelligence for their own purposes. Without alternatives to the US tech giants, the rest of the world has no choice but to consent to this. This is an unprecedented challenge, but it also presents an unprecedented opportunity, particularly for Europe.

Now is the time for Europe to invest in its own tech sector, unbeholden to outside interests. This is the only way the European community can continue to safeguard the European ideals of privacy, liberty, and freedom online. It is time for European governments and citizens to act before it is too late.

The only chance for privacy to prevail against these attacks is for the global community to support a new generation of web services which protect privacy by default. These services, such as ProtonMail’s encrypted email service, must operate with a business model where users can donate or pay for services, instead of giving up data and privacy. The security community also has an obligation to make these new service just as easy to use as the ones they replace.

Services such as secure email, search, and cloud storage are now vital to our lives. Their importance means that for the good of all citizens, we need to develop private alternatives that are aligned with users, and free from corporate greed and government overreach. Crowdfunded services like ProtonMail are rising to the challenge, but we need more support from the global community to successfully take on better funded US tech giants. Privacy matters, and your support is essential to ensure the Internet of the future is one that protects our rights.

Best Regards,
The ProtonMail Team

I encourage you to go to ProtonMail’s blog and read their analysis of the Yahoo statement, for further information about the pressure they have been under as a company, and why other sites are likely under a gag order about their own participation.

I also strongly, STRONGLY encourage you to sign up for a ProtonMail account (it’s fast and free and works like every other email you’ve ever used) and use only that for emailing me, or anyone you don’t want your boss/mother/wife or the FBI/DHS/NSA to know about.

There have been countless occasions where I am unable to respond to someone who is clearly using their corporate/employee email account, simply because I do not want to be associated with them when their IT department decides to see what they’ve been up to.

Like I said, you’re never going to seal all the cracks. Even .gov addresses are hacked and released on Wikileaks. But you can do better than what you’re doing right now.

And you need to.

Kanye West Stops Concert To Praise Trump, Reveals He Would Have Voted For Him

“I hope they build the wall, I hope they get rid of them all," he reportedly rapped.
From: NewNowNext
Kanye West stunned fans into silence during a concert in San Jose on Thursday night when he revealed that he didn’t vote in last week’s election, but “would’ve voted for Trump” if he had.

The controversial rapper said that there were things he liked about the president-elect’s campaign in a political rant that reportedly lasted for over 25 minutes.

“There’s methods, non-political methods to speaking, that I like – that I feel were very futuristic,” West said. “That style and that method of communication has proven that it can be a politically correct way of communication. And I fuck with that.”

Kanye also sent a message to black people telling them to “stop focusing on racism.”

“[Voting for Trump] don’t mean that I don’t think that black lives matter; that don’t mean I don’t believe in women’s rights; that don’t mean that I don’t believe in gay marriage,” he declared. “This world is racist, okay? Let’s stop being distracted to focus on that as much. It’s just a fucking fact: We are a racist fucking country, period.”

Gay Man Found Brutally Murdered In Nashville Parking Lot

"The way that he was murdered would make me think that it was a hate crime."
From: NewNowNext
 The family of a gay man who was brutally murdered in West Nashville this week are urging police to investigate the matter as a hate crime.

WTVF reports the body of the victim, 24-year-old cosmetologist Deon L. Brown, was discovered early Monday morning in the parking lot of a local trucking business, dressed as a woman. According to police, he died of multiple stab wounds.

It’s unclear if Brown was transgender, though he appeared to identify as male among friends, family, and on social media.

 “The way that he was murdered would make me think that it was a hate crime,” said Charity Everett, one of Deon’s closest friends.

“It makes me feel that you had nothing but hate in order to take the life in the manner that you did.”

Deon’s aunt, Margaritta Hill, also believes her nephew was killed in a brutal hate crime.

“He took him from us,” she said of the assailant, who remains unidentified as the investigation continues.

“This wasn’t an accident, he took him, and it’s just a sad situation that my sisters going through right now.”

She added: “I want this person to know that we are going to get you we are going to get you.”

American Fear, 2016

From: V E N F I E L D 8
The artist VENFIELD8 has always been subversive. His images routinely skewer society’s perceptions of our consumerist culture and our attraction/revulsion of male nudes. He upends preconceived notions of beefcake erotica by giving gravity to images you might ordinarily just swipe by. Doing so would be a shame and to your determent, because unlike the millions of images on the internet - especially those depicting pretty men, his work does more than elevate the genre, it breaks the mold. Take, for instance his latest piece, titled American Fear. In a post election environment, it perfectly encapsulates the current and historical mood, brought into acute focus, not by being blatant, but by posing narrative questions. Like all good art, it engages you by withholding any easy answers and leaves you to search yourself to grasp it’s true meaning. It looks like an old photograph, folded, creased and hidden away in someone’s pocket - concealing an image so incendiary and strangely erotic you instinctively know it should’t be shown. It is a dirty picture, but not for the obvious reasons. Its not about what you see, but how you feel. The model is at once defiant and vulnerable, exhibiting the artist’s trademark whiff of fashion glamour but in a situation far from the glossy pages of a magazine. It is an uneasy tableaux, full of layered dichotomy and mystery. VENFIELD8 knows how to play the race card, but also the sex, luxury and beauty ones.  He gets masculinity and social hypocrisy, and with American Fear, you have a master showing his hand.
