With it being only 21 degrees in NY/NJ this morning, I definitely needed a little heat to warm me up!
The first blast of heat came as I was finishing up reviewing the galleys for THE CLAIMED, the second book in the Sin Hunters series. Wow, Virginia and Christopher have major heat going on, plus it’s been exciting to see the action scenes come together in the final version. I can’t wait for it to be out and hear what you guys think!
Of course, heading out into the cold on my walk to work has me needing a little more heat and since it is the holidays, I thought why not bring back an old favorite and help get you in the mood for trimming the tree. I did my Christmas tree yesterday along with my Christmas village. I’ll be sharing those photos with you tomorrow!
But for now, here’s our Guilty Pleasure for this morning and Man Candy Monday! Hope he helps warm you up!
This weekend I deconstructed the Star Trek movie with my buddies at the Liberty States Fiction Writers. A fun time was had by all as we watched the new version and discussed the various series with which some of us had grown up.
Feeling nostalgic, it made me recollect my earliest sci fi series – Flash Gordon as portrayed by Buster Crabbe. Buster would go on and play Tarzan in one movie and then another nameless jungle man in various other movies (which I also loved!). Buster also played Buck Rogers, another of my favorites.
Buster was a talented swimmer who won both a Bronze and Gold medal at the Olympics (in 1928 and 1932 respectively).
He starred in hundreds of movies and television shows throughout his life and when his career started to wane, he became a representative for a New Jersey pool company.
If you want to check out the Flash Gordon series for yourself, the earlier Flash Gordon shows and movies are available in DVD format.
An apology to all those on Team Edward, but as much as all of you know that I love vampires, I’ve got to get on the side of Team Jacob this morning! How can I not with the likes of Taylor Lautner playing the werewolf in the Bella-Edward-Jacob triangle?
You can grab this brooding Jacob wallpaper from over at the official NEW MOON Movie site (but be prepared to wait for the never-ending flash gadgets!)
And if that’s not enough eye-candy for you this Guilty Pleasures Monday, well then you can click here for more shots displaying Taylor’s rather sculpted physique!
If you’re in the mood to talk about vampires this morning, don’t forget to drop by and visit my Dark Side Demon Monday over at Danger Women Writing.
I must confess this Guilty Pleasures Monday choice is all Bad Boy. He’s got those wonderful Black Irish looks and I’ve enjoyed him in several of his movies — from his villian turn in DAREDEVIL (which is so not as bad as people say) to his appearance in THE RECRUIT and THE NEW WORLD.
Colin comes from a family of footballers, both father and uncle, and I understand that at one time he considered becoming a soccer player as well.
Last night Colin won the Golden Globe for Best Actor: Musical or Comedy for his role in IN BRUGES.
Hope you enjoyed this Guilty Pleasure Monday!
