It's Friday, I'm in Love!

Took me all day and night to come up with a lyric title.  Guess away!


Oh it's that wonderful time of year, when those genius people at PEOPLE mag roll out their Sexiest Man Alive issue.  And this year, they really got it right:





Really all I can say is, "DUH."  The choice, as far as I'm concerned, is a total no brainer!

Unfortunately, I had to break it to Jethro that once again they forgot to include him.  I mean, like I said they got the cover boy right this year, but they I sometimes seriously wonder what the heck they're thinking.  For example.  The first time Johnny got this title, the cover looked like this:




Honestly, PEOPLE?  Really?  It took until 2003 which is either unexplainable or baffling, and then, then, they gave 1/3 of the cover to Bachelor Boob.  Tell me, where is he now?  No don't tell me.  Have any other Sexy Men had to share a cover????

And then they go and leave out the Sexiest Recording Engineer out of it too.

But it's okay.  They've honoured Johnny again and he's now in the Two Time club with George and Brad.  Can you see them having a club meeting?  George would have to be all slicked up with his Dapper Dan Hair Pomade...


Brad would be kinda sleepy lookin' what with all a them younguns runnin' around on his place...





and Johnny would be... well, he'd be his usual perfect combination of scruffy and elegant...




Hugh Jackman apparently quipped recently that he's happy to pass along the title since he's looking forward to slacking off in the appearance maintenance.  I'm confident Johnny won't have any issues with that.  Mostly because he seems pretty happy keeping on with whatever he's been doing.

I have to include a few other faces from the mag's website feature.

Gotta love happy, healthy looking RDJ with his big brown eyes and silver whiskers.




And hey, Rpattz looks clean!  He's a strange boy.  He's absolutely lovely with those cat eyes and nice lips and handsome jaw, but he often photographs like he's just crawled hungover out of a ditch.



Mind you I can handle a pretty heavy amount of scruff and grime.  That's what soap was invented for.





I can get past it.  (Also that's a darn pretty National he's holding.)

But his fingernails are all long and nasty in that movie but I can still get past it.  Nothing a nail clipper can't fix.  Doesn't change anything. I still dig him.




I just love this guy's style.  He makes his own decisions, lives by his own standards, and manages to be a success on his own terms.  If that means accepting an award wearing a suit jacket with his plaid shirt tied around his waist, I'm cool with it.


You never know when you're going to need an extra plaid shirt.  So few people in the world realize that.


So, what makes a man sexy?

Honesty?

Humour?

Confidence?

All that and more?  Something indefinable?   What do you dudes think makes you awesome?

Heck with my commentary.  Have some pictures.  We all know why you're here today.

The Cure, of course :)


I don't care if Monday's blue
Tuesday's grey and Wednesday too
Thursday I don't care about you
It's Friday, I'm in love

Monday you can fall apart
Tuesday, Wednesday break my heart
Oh, Thursday doesn't even start
It's Friday I'm in love

Saturday, wait
And Sunday always comes too late
But Friday, never hesitate...

I don't care if Mondays black
Tuesday, Wednesday - heart attack
Thursday, never looking back
It's Friday, I'm in love

Monday, you can hold your head
Tuesday, Wednesday stay in bed
Or Thursday - watch the walls instead
It's Friday, I'm in love

Saturday, wait
And Sunday always comes too late
But Friday, never hesitate...

Dressed up to the eyes
It's a wonderful surprise
To see your shoes and your spirits rise
Throwing out your frown
And just smiling at the sound
And as sleek as a sheik
Spinning round and round
Always take a big bite
It's such a gorgeous sight
To see you eat in the middle of the night
You can never get enough
Enough of this stuff
It's Friday, I'm in love

I don't care if Monday's blue
Tuesday's grey and Wednesday too
Thursday I don't care about you
It's Friday, I'm in love

Monday you can fall apart
Tuesday, Wednesday break my heart
Thursday doesn't even start
It's Friday I'm in love

I love me some RDJ, Friday or any other day in fact.

Ah, the Cure. Always a #1 choice. Love, love, LOVE them. Don't let me age myself, but I did graduate hs in 1989...this is still my all-time fave song by The Cure.

I would say I'm sorry
If I thought that it would change your mind
But I know that this time
I have said too much
Been too unkind

I try to laugh about it
Cover it all up with lies
I try and laugh about it
Hiding the tears in my eyes
Because boys don't cry
Boys don't cry

I would break down at your feet
And beg forgiveness
Plead with you
But I know that it's too late
And now there's nothing I can do

So I try to laugh about it
Cover it all up with lies
I try to laugh about it
Hiding the tears in my eyes
Because boys don't cry

I would tell you
That I loved you
If I thought that you would stay
But I know that it's no use
That you've already
Gone away

Misjudged your limit
Pushed you too far
Took you for granted
I thought that you needed me more

Now I would do most anything
To get you back by my side
But I just keep on laughing
Hiding the tears in my eyes
Because boys don't cry
Boys don't cry
Boys don't cry

Lovin' the eye candy today, Heidi. Now, if I could just get out of work and take a stroll in the rain...life would be just fine.

The Cure are very Goth lately - although Robert Smith looks all the better for it.

No idea what anyone sees in me. Never had any idea. Never even bothered to think about it.

Heidi the Hick said...

Maybe, 4D, maybe that's what IT is? The never bothering to think about it?

Lopin, we're the same age... The Cure seemed to be one of those bands that all my diverse friends could agree on, the wavers and the proto-goths (although they weren't called that) the small town punkers, the kids who looked normal but couldn't have been cuz I gravitated to others with interesting brains...

My metal head friends never liked the Cure though. Go figure.

lopinon4 said...

Agreed. Metal heads never liked any "alternative rock". I feel it's because they felt threatened. Mwahahaha!!! On Friday night cruises, I loved to crank up Girlfriend In A Coma by The Smiths just to piss them off.

I just received a text message from Jax who is out and about with her University pals in London somewhere.

She believes the chap sitting a few tables away may be the Deppmeister.

She may also be wrong...

I have given her firm instructions should she be right regarding what he must put on the second autograph she gets.

My profuse apologies if

A) She's mistaken or
B) Doesn't ask....

I await with bated breath....

Heidi Willis said...

Yesterday I came by, I ogled, I hummed the tune all day...and I never left a comment. Hmmmm..... too distracted by great songs and great photos??

I hope you had an awesome weekend and you're healing well.

I get to go play with puppies tomorrow. I've been told the adorable one is mine if I want it. Pictures may soon flood my blog. :)

Paul Tee said...

All right then. Cure is not on my short list (not even close). Sorry.

So try this on for size:

Motionless faces
Park of the wasted
In the pale gloom
I hang on to you
In the pale gloom
I am safe and cool

and then this:

I riddle the riddler
Who plays the fiddler
Of a forgotten song
short over long
gasping for air
in the arms of the fair ...

Prize may be claimed after a skill testing question.

Dern that Biddie. I could hear it in my head, just couldn't get it out.

RDJ is looking fine these days isn't he?

Thanks for the Johnny fix. But you didn't include my favorite pic, the one where he's standing on a deck or a boat, shirtless, with a glass of wine in his hand, eyes closed to the sun. Oh My! THAT pic makes him the sexiest for sure. Whew!

Heidi the Hick said...

Jules, I'm saving that one. Can't have my brain explode so regularly...

Paul I googled it!!! At least the first verse, hee hee! Two questions: How did you find them, and what the heck is in the water in those scandinavian countries????
