Greetings, Kittens!

Just dropping in to let you know I'm a guest at Gabriella Hewitt's today with the post Bi Any Other Name, a discussion on Pansexuality and similar terminology. Come on by and share a bit. I may have also forgotten to mention the Crush of the Week Anna Torv at Erotic Diaries on Friday and Writing From the Middle: Screw the Norm at QMO on Saturday, so by all means come by those as well!

Enjoy.

Greetings, Kittens!

If one can believe what is seen on television and read on the internet, many of you out there in relationships have a freebie list. That is, those celebrities with whom you get a free pass on having a romantic encounter should reality drastically shift and bring you into each other's sphere of being. I don't have one of those. If something unforseen, but sensually fortunate came about, I'd just call home and ask, because that's how we roll. But that's not to say there aren't those for whom special compensation has been made. I do have a run-off-into-the-sunset-call-me-when-you-get-there list, and it only has one name on it.

Every other crush I hold in my affections would have to share with My Sweetie, but for one man, just the one, I would run off for a bit of a honeymoon phase and give my total attention, until we worked something out. And My Sweetie has given his blessing because even he has to admit this man is made of Awesome topped with Win!

This Friday I bring you the man in the secondary slot of my highest affections, and he who appears most often in my visual movies as I write. Yes, Kittens, today's Crush of the Week is the Wolverine, The Boy From Oz, Kate and Leopold, The Fountain, Swordfish and the Van Helsing-y goodness (at least he looked good, let's not talk about the actual movie) that is Hugh Jackman

I'm sure everyone who is a fan has their favorite movie, favorite, role, and favorite moment that made Jackman one to admire or to swoon over depending on your fangirl/boy personality type. I fell in love with Hugh during Inside The Actor's Studio and later that night during a profile on Biography. Oprah then conspired to make it that affection and to my amazement he Just. Kept. Getting. Better.  From the accent, to the body, to the comic-book character goodness, (even if he's a foot taller than Wolverine was written), there's a lot of surface things to love about Hugh, but it was the interview and the depth of his love for his family that captured me. He radiates a sincerity and confidence in speaking about and expressing his love for those important in his life, that is almost physically manifest as talks. There's also a depth to the way he talks about the world, his place in it and his responsibility to it. He's not just someone whose genes I want for my future offspring, he's someone I'd want to sit next to and talk about life with, and that's a rare total package, Kittens. 

I could gush for days, (and I have), but enough of that, onto Hugh.

Enjoy.

Crushing Ahead... )

Greetings, Kittens!

This week finds me a bit under the weather, but I couldn't miss Crush of Week after so very long without it. As the avatar might have given awary, I've been watching fanvids and reruns to make myself feel better and in light of last Friday's guest of honor, there was only one option for today's consumption of eye-candy and that was more Supernatural eye-candy in particular. Yes, Kittens, this Friday we're showing love to Supernatural's Dean Winchester, or rather the actor who plays him, Jensen Ackles.

Greetings, Kittens!

Let's kick of today's installment with a little background. There are many things that can land someone here as Crush of the Week material. Some are actor crushes, built through interviews and convention appearances and a consistant demonstration of being a great person who stands for something. Others capture my affections for the characters they play, the stories they tell and the worlds they make me believe in. Of course it is a fine day when someone is both, but there is a third category, those who are the best of the best in my affections and they are the Fantasy Cast. Every writer has them, those people that embody a character physically, emotionally or spiritually that you'd either want to see play your character on screen, or that got you through writing by being featured in the movie in your head.

I'm guilty of Hollywood casting at times in that the character I describe on the page and the character I see in my head when I picture the scene aren't the same. Most of the time this is because the written character's description is important but I have no visual equivalent and, yet, I can easily see certain actors or models together in my head and can't shake it loose, so I go with it. This happened with Ghost of Christmas Past. It plays out in my head with entirely different people of different body types than Quintus and Sky, so I can't share them with you to avoid confusion. But the one person I can give you is the physical inspiration for Torrin St. James.


Who is it that captures the six-and-a-half foot, doe-eyed, broad shouldered, wounded puppy of "baby sasquatch" proportions? Yes, Kittens, that's right; this Friday's Crush of the Week is Jared Padalecki.

Greetings Lovelies!

I don't know how many of you were around for Crush of the Week a few years ago but the return of the feature will mean updating previous CotW guests with new photos and bio information, along with bringing you brand new ones. The goal is to bring you both actor and character crushes as they become relevant to my writing or viewing habits and to get you thinking about the crush-worthy individuals dancing through your own thoughts. Crushes will consist of both male and female choices of varying body types, so come for the ones you want to date and the ones you want to emulate, there should be enough options to suit quite a few preferences.

Greetings Lovelies,

My initial desire to bring you a crush of the week has been sidetracked by my media grief. Stargate Universe, the third incarnation of the Stargate franchise was unceremoniously cancelled yesterday with no plans for a fourth. To console myself I'm going to indulge in a pictoral memorial of my favorite sci-fi universe. Here's my heartbroken Stargate Crush of the Week

Hello Lovelies, 

I hope you're enjoying this Friday afternoon. I'm a tad injured and unable to type as freely as I'd like, but I promised to resurrect Crush of the Week and that's exactly what I shall do. To make it easier on my shoulder as well as taking the opportunity to revist my ever-evolving crushes, I'm taking one from the archives and updating it. The last time the following gentleman was on the list I was in a Browncoat mood and named him "One of Five Captians I'd Serve Under Any Day". That's still true but wonderfully enough he's also the now The Thriller Writer-slash-Crimefighter I'd Want Working on My Mysteries All. Night. Long. Yes Kitten's, this Friday's Crush of the Week is Nathan Fillion.

Hello Lovelies, 

This Friday's crush takes us away from character crushes and back to an actor oriented one. That's not to say that there haven't been crushworthy characters in his past. Whether saving the world 4th of July style, selling his services in advising the clueless on how to find true love, scraping out a living to show his son that you can rise from the bottom to succeed at the top, or being the last man on earth desperately searching for a cure, this guy tugs at the heart strings as expertly as he tickles the funny bone. Yes, Kittens, this Friday's Crush of the Week is Will Smith. 

xakara: (poppet2)

Evening Lovelies, 

I'm running a bit late tonight and have the aftermath of a mini-blizzard outside to wade through to get to work in a half hour so no time to fully indulge in this week's character crush. I shall however share the pic and just a bit of the yumminess that is Ben Browder as it translates into his Stargate SG1 uniform. Yes Kittens, this Friday's (Character) Crush of the Week is Colonel Cameron Mitchell.

xakara: (poppet2)

Hello Lovelies, 

Due to photobucket woes, there is but a single pic this week. I had to use one already in my account rather than upload new ones. As I happen to like the one picture I'm willing to make due. Technically the picture I give you is of Garet David-Lloyd, but that's not who I had in mind. Yes Kittens, we are going with another character crush this time around. Non-Torchwood fans look away because for this Friday's Crush of the Week, I bring you Ianto Jones.

xakara: (poppet2)
Hello Lovelies, 

I'm early today for which I'm grateful because it's nice not to be rushed for a change. :)

Usually I bring you actors who have drawn me in with a single character, or snared me for their entire career, but today is different. It's a character crush to be sure, but a character the man in question was casts as in my head rather than one he actually played. It was inevitable and I'm rather surprised he waited so long before pushing his way to the forefront. But now that he's been conjured up by mention on another blog, he's ready for his due.

For a few of you I offer Alyn De Romanus. For the rest of my Kittens I present super-model and actor Marcus Schenkenberg

xakara: (poppet2)
Hello Lovelies, 

I'm not even going to pretend this week that I'm bringing you anything less than a character crush. It took me a bit to grow as attached to this show as I was to its predecessor, but the inevitable happened as the inevitibale tends to do, and here I am. There will only ever be one Colonel O'Neill, but I've definitely found another colonel I'd be willing to follow through the gate and to another galaxy. Yes Kitten, this Friday's Crush of the Week is Joe Flaningan or in this case Lt. Colonel John Sheppard from Stargate Atlantis.

Hello Lovelies, 

Due to a browser issue that shut down everything before it was saved, I lost my original entry for posting. Rather than reconstruct it, I will take it as a sign to simplify and direct you to find out more about this Scottish born actor on your own. Anyone who can go from Dracula to a Time Traveler, to haunting an opera house, to a pit-kicking, ass-stomping, but ultimately doomed Spartan King, is a guy worth the current national swoon that seems to be taking hold. (And it only took 28 projects to get there).  Yes, Kittens, this Friday's Crush of the Week is Law school graduate, Gerard Butler.  Check out is IMBD page, his Wiki page, and Gerard Butler dot Net for more info about him. For now, onto the pictures.

xakara: (poppet2)
Hello Lovelies, 

I'm feeling rather reserved today and I have to work tonight so it's another week of straight to the pictures. I'll have to consider moving CotW to Wednesday so there's no work rush and commentary can flow freely. 

For now it's time to look to our inner Heroes, and the good doctor that could help bring it out in us. Yes Kittens, this Friday's Crush of the Week is Sendhil Ramamurthy, better known as Dr. Mohinder Suresh of the NBC drama, Heroes

Enjoy.

xakara: (poppet2)
Hello Lovelies, 

I'm feeling a bit better and getting ready for work tonight, so I thought I'd get this done earlier than usual. Perhaps it's a matter of feeling like the universe has been picking on me, but I found myself in a rather Browncoat mood today. In response I bring you one of five captians I'd serve under any day. Yes Kitten's, this Friday's Crush of the Week is Nathan Fillion. 

xakara: (poppet2)
Hello Lovelies, 

This is a drive-by CotW as I try to get a little more rest before work. Somehow though, I think that Sawyer would understand the need for some me time. Yes, Kittens, this Friday's Crush of the Week is Josh Holloway of LOST.

xakara: (poppet2)
Hello Lovelies, 

As I've been under the weather and feeling adrift lately, the only logical choice for this Friday was a doctor that could sympathize with being Lost. Yes, Kittens, today's Crush of the Week is Matthew Fox
