Oh yes, we are on the same page as far as Jake is concerned... If only 'Brokeback Mountain' would hurry up and start.

Michael said...

I've only been a celebrity in my own mind before now. If I'm hangin' with Sister Wendy, I won't complain.

Still, my favorite THING of yours, easily, is "Be the new Prada muse".

So do you require all your criteria combined in a guy? My eyes are pretty and my mind is dirty, but my arms and ass? Meh.

The Other Andrew said...

I'm just tying up the deal with Miuccia, they're doing almost middle-aged, short and vaguely dumpy as the 'look' next season.

Michael, not all boxes need be ticked, and I'm sure your arms and ass are perfectly lovely. I'm an optimist... ;-P

wingedman said...

Damn Miuccia. I dunno what the hell she wants. Perhaps next season's look will be tall, pot-bellied asian?

BTW, LOL @ hat full of arseholes. I must find a way to use that.

The Other Andrew said...

Wingedman, I'll see what I can do. I must warn you though, that Miuccia is one willful bitch.

Hey Mikey, dontcha just love that Sister Wendy? I heart her for the passion she (sublimates?) brings to art, her insight that everything is always about sex, and the fact that she's a worse snaggletooth than me. Yay!

harry said...

The whole 'Unattainable' thing really works for you guys, right?

And by 'you guys' I of course mean bhuddists.

"Gael Garcia Bernal" is pretty much number1 Thinking-woman's-bit-of-alright as far as I can tell. I think it's because he's foreign and therefore it's an _intellectual_ choice, rather than, you know, women pretending they aren't as shallow as guys.

The Other Andrew said...

Harry, the thing with Gael Garcia Bernal is partly the 'foreign' thing - but mostly that he's slammin' hot. Sex. On. A. Stick. Given the choice between two options, the shallower one usually wins.

The Other Andrew said...

Oh, I forgot to add. 'Unattainable', well unattainable sucks. I'm not into unattainable at all. It's like some guys only like to pursue unattainable straight men, uh, no thanks. I like 'em gay and easy.


Michael said...

Yes, with Sister it's the sublimation I relate to. Who else talks about sex as much as her? Hmmm.....

Snaggletooth, eh? You, Sister and Winston. That's good company.

Bodhi said...

Gael Garcia Bernal is indeed quite the hottie. And have you seen him in Y Tu Mama Tambien (And Your Mama Too) and La Mala Educacion (Bad Education)? He has no problems playing gay/bi characters, and I gotta love that about him. Those smouldering eyes and Spanish good looks, combined with that sexy accent and cute smile .... damn!.

"The whole 'Unattainable' thing really works for you guys, right?
And by 'you guys' I of course mean bhuddists."

Well speaking personally for moi, this Buddhist thinks weather a guy is unattainable or not is quite irrespective of weather I have a bit of a celebrity crush. Just because a guy happens to be straight, does not mean that I can not admire him or find him attractive.

That does not mean that I pine away in an epic gays of our lives melodrama like some sad pathetic drama queen over what can never be? No, not at all. So I find them attractive, call me shallow, but thats it.

Back in the real world, and I'm like Andrew in that I'm not interested in actually going out with unattainable men either. I like mine very much gay (or bi, in one instance) and comfortable with their sexuality. Thank ya very much.

As to my fondness for His Brad-leyness (no Andrew, it is not an obsession, m'kay), there is nothing wrong in indulging in a little wishful fantasy from time to time. If straights can pine over a supermodel or some hot married starlet (like thats going to happen), this gay boy can dream too, can he not?

The Other Andrew said...

Michael, I adore Winston!

(Everyone else, if you have no idea what we are talking about follow the link on my sidebar to the blog called FourFour and look for the picture posts of his cat called Winston. Hi-larious!)

harry said...

I'm all for dreaming, dudes.
Just wanted to see some claws - but you're all too centred and chill.

Fine, you be shallow here and I'll go and be shallow over there. Hmmm ... Maya Stange. Ahhhh. Although I did go to a party and talked to her best friend for about 1/2 a minute so I was *almost* there man!

harry said...

"So I find them attractive, call me shallow"

Call me a pot.
