Here's the first photo of the very cute Andrew Garfield (The Social Network, Doctor Who) as Spider-Man.  Costume fits nicely!  :D

cute moot - w00t!


Christopher Poole is the 22-year-old founder of the infamous 4chan site.  I don't really have much to say about him except he sounds like a very intelligent and reasonable guy, and is also extremely cute, if you like skinny white boys - and I do!  More pix after the jump.

Mick, Mick, Mick

Been busy lately but had to grab this photo of Mick and post it.  He was something else back in the day.

Le Homme Nouveau


New York Magazine reports that British mannequin maker Roostein is pushing back against the Western world's increasing girth with Le Homme Nouveau, a new line of male mannequins with tiny, 27" waists.

A lot of bloggers are questioning whether this is a good idea, as ironically, as obesity increases, so, apparently, are bulimia and other eating disorders in both men and women.

I am, of course, of two minds in this regard.  A man with a 38" chest and 27" waist sounds pretty ideal to me, but I also hate the very notion of such a rarely-obtainable ideal being promoted, thus giving the fuller-figured cause for anxiety.  Of course, this very blog promotes that same ideal, but it's my taste, not "society's" in general.  It's complicated.

Adrien Brody

Following up on my post devoted to Wes Anderson, here's a gallery for Adrien Brody, one of the best actors around.  The Queens native (born April 14, 1973) starred in Anderson's The Darjeeling Limited (2007) and has appeared in a wide variety of excellent films, from Polanski's The Pianist (2002), which made him the youngest Best Actor Oscar-winner in history, to King Kong (2005), Summer of Sam (1999, looking hot in a wifebeater) and The Thin Red Line (1998).  He will appear this summer in the sci-fi films Splice and Predators.

He's actually best-known for embarrassing himself somewhat by planting a big ol' smackeroo on Halle Berry at the Academy Awards.  Oh well, I know I would not have minded in Halle's place.  He also appeared, rocking a 70s style open collar, in a Diet Coke ad a few years back.

Brody's a photogenic one, with a long, angular face, great hair, wonderful intelligent eyes, and a dominant schnozz.  He is not that skinny, though I bet he was quite the beanpole in his youth.  He combines a tall, slim frame with quite a muscular build, and did I mention the man looks hot in a wifebeater?  See for yourself, after the jump.

Anderson - Baumbach

No, it's not the name of a white-shoe law firm on the Upper East Side, it's Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach, Brooklyn's finest purveyors of soul-searching melancholy for the young and the hip.

Wesley Mortimer Wales "Wes" Anderson (born May 1, 1969) is a writer and director who was nominated for Best Original Screenplay for The Royal Tennenbaums (2001).  The Houston, TX native first made a splash with the films Bottle Rocket (1996) and Rushmore (1998), which introduced Owen Wilson and Jason Schwartzman, respectively.  He's known for his quirky art direction, man-boy characters, and mix-tape soundtracks.  His latest film, the stop-motion Fantastic Mister Fox (2009), was a hit with adult and kid audiences alike.

Noah Baumbach co-wrote Fantastic Mister Fox and The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou (2004), both of which Anderson directed.  On his own, Baumbach (born September 3, 1969) made his film debut writing and directing Kicking and Screaming (1995) and is best known for the highly acclaimed divorce drama, The Squid and the Whale (2005).  His latest movie is Greenberg, with Ben Stiller.

I am including Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach on The Whole Skinny because they are both quite slim, and quite cute to me in that overly-intellectual, neurotic, artsy-boy kind of way.  Baumbach is more handsome, but Anderson cultivates a charming eccentricity that seems rather delightful.  They both have great hair, too.  Pix after the jump!
