2015: A Year In Review Part 2

Let's see what happened on this blog for the last half of the year.

In July, I featured one of my favorite re-discoveries of the year: Mario Schafzahl. He was such a favorite of mine that I declared him Man of the Month, and I firmly believe that he deserved that title. Also in that month, were posts on guys wearing American-flag clothes, or just posing with that flag.Also, men in white towels. And a few lessons on the muscles of the arms.

August was when I discovered the addiction of instagram. On this blog, it became a jumble of guys featured for a couple of days. Notables include: Dustin McNeer, Anton Narinskiy, Brandon Osmond, Tyler Gattuso, as well as awesome pix by photog Chris Wiener.

September saw the likes of Mike Vacanti and Vince Sant. I also admired men in gymnastics.


November featured Scott Baptie as Man of the Week.

In December, Justin Maina started out as Man of the Week, until I decided to bump him up to Man of Two Weeks. That apparently did not sit well with a lot of folks who got too tired of seeing him, which resulted in a major loss in subscribers. Oh well...there's next year...

2015: A Year In Review Part 1

So, what all has happened in 2015 that was newsworthy? A lot of interesting things. Black Lives Matter. Marriage equality in the entire United States. Mass shootings. Mass shootings. And more mass shootings around the world. The Presidential Primaries: Bernie Sanders vs Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump vs a clowncar of candidates. Movies: Jurassic World and Star Wars The Force Awakens (The Martian was my favorite).

So, what all happened in 2015 in my personal life? Nothing much to tell. Still doing a passable job at my job, and still as single as a one dollar bill. I've definitely gotten more lean than I've ever been in my entire life, with very decent abs to show for it. I've lifted more weights than I've ever lifted. And I ran my first obstacle course run this year, so all is good on the fitness front. 

So, what all happened in 2015 on this blog? Well, let's take a look back at the first half of the year.

In January, the first two men featured were Chase Isaacs and Shaun Thompson.

The first mega-themed post was about hot men running.

I also tried (and failed miserably) to create one NSFW post a week.

In February, I learned about Frank Hopkins, and he became the Man of Two Weeks (which actually lasted the entire February).

February was also the beginning of my fascinating with the article of clothing I call a muscle tee.

In March, Jiri Prochazka became the Man of the Week as well as the banner boy for this blog (He greets you in that gorgeous hoodie picture at the top of the website)

In April, I went edgy and risky by featuring guys being tied up/held captive. This did not please some of the readers of this blog. This month also featured guys in plain white tees and lumbersexuals.

In May, I was obsessed with guys fixing/washing/posing next to/driving in cars. Yep, that was a thing I did in May.

In June, I started out by telling you my thoughts on the presentation of this blog, which is my long winded way of congratulating myself on spending so much time on this hobby of mine. I also declared the image of a man getting out of the pool by lifting himself up with his arms is one of the sexiest of all photographic poses.

I'm breaking this post up in two parts because I don't have time to sit and do an entire year's post. The next Year In Review post will come within 24 hours.

Lani Lynn Vale again: Hunks to my Cover

In addition to having hot muscular guys with tattoos on her covers, she also likes to name many of her books in a "something to my something" manner. Here are a selection of the books with such titles.

Cover Hunks for Lani Lynn Vale: SWAT Series

I know Lani Lynn Vale doesn't have 100% control on who gets to be on the covers of her books, but from the looks of this series, it seems like her idea of a SWAT member is big muscles, ab-tastically lean, and well-tattooed!
Haha, no complaints from me!
Please take a moment to interact with this blog. If you could put together the perfect model by mixing and matching the best features of these guys...what would you choose?
 UPDATE:
You might want to know the results. This is based on more than 50 folks who took the survey.
(Sorry I can't provide you immediate access to the responses)

Muscular Santa

If you've ever fantasied about a Santa Claus who wasn't fat, and if you believe cartoon/graphic arts/paintings (or any visual art form that is not photographic) can rival the appeal of photograph of a real man...then you'll enjoy this. Otherwise, come back another day. Merry Christmas to all those who celebrate; Happy Holidays to all!
