Since eyecandy’s always a good way to keep one going blog-wise…

This picture of Dir en Grey’s Shinya done up like Audrey Hepburn remains my favorite tranny VK image of all time, I think. Not that I have a huge collection of such, but this may ultimately be the measure by which I decide to throw caution to the wind and finally get me some hot Stonewall Riot action in my pants. Wife permitting, of course.

Ahhh, Megukami-chan! I mean, Ryo-kun. Showing off his moves from One Pound Gospel albeit not at all convincingly. Still, Ju Ju has been throwing a lot of HSJ eyecandy in my direction, and my weakness for Ryo is slowly becoming a fatal flaw… okay, maybe not, but I’m sure liking looking at him.

I’m so tempted to send him a picture of me topless, my belly hanging out and me winking like a madman, and write on it, “I’M YOUR BIGGEST FAN, RYO-KUN!” I guarantee you he’ll have nightmares for WEEKS.

I just finished reading a novel called Sway a few days ago – it’s about Kenneth Anger, the Rolling Stones, Bobby Beausoleil, and the Manson family, and how their lives interacted. It wasn’t an entirely successful novel, by any means – and for some reason, I found the Manson sequences especially tiresome – but it’s gotten me into a major Stones kick again, watching One Plus One and Gimme Shelter and Cocksucker Blues and actually seriously pondering the role of popular music in our culture again.

The one thing I get most out of this portrait – and from the book, actually – is that the Stones were indeed quite dangerous. They look like thugs, they apparently brought out the inner thugs in their audience, and there’s something about that I’ve always found deeply appealing. There’s that famous line in Pulp Fiction about how there are Elvis people and there are Beatles people, and that always puzzled me because I’d have to place myself firmly as a Stones person.

    Honestly, I clicked this link specifically because I was expecting the Hey Say. I am not disappointed.
    …Thus, I am slightly disappointed in myself. Except I’m pretty much done with denial now.

    It’s funny to see a vintage picture of Mick & Co. given that I was already thinking of pulling out for tonight’s writing music my heavy vinyl reissue of Some Girls and the copy of Hot Rocks on double vinyl that I borrowed from a friend back in 1983 and never was able to return (mainly because he wasn’t around anymore to return it!)

    What’s weird is, the dude in the second picture is prettier than the dude in the first picture, in the dress.

    Incidentally, are you bi or just an equal-opportunity eyecandy poster? (Not that it really matters in any practical way, but I’m just curious. I don’t know a lot of married bi guys.)

    Shinya and Mana from Malice Mizer are just plain trannies. They pull off some good looks sometimes, but they’re no Harisu. (Ho yes.)

    Stones are pretty great, but I guess I’m more Beatles. I think I went from Beatles to Zeppelin and skipped the Stones mostly if that makes sense. I think of the Stones as a really great singles band and I never got many of their albums. Elvis was not really that much of a musician except for in the beginning. He’s almost like an idol after that (hmmm…I will regret that one). I don’t know anyone under 30 that is into him seriously (but they still get into Beatles/Stones/Zep). He’s seen mostly as a joke. Kids are more likely into Johnny Cash today than Elvis.

    I’m straight, though quite queer-friendly in life and writing. However, you pretty much hit my rationale right on the head: a female pop idol is as accessible to me in real life as a male pop idol, so desiring them seems just as acceptable to me. Knowing my wota imagination is completely unmoored from my reality, I might as well enjoy it as best I can.
