Kudos to Mario Cantone and John Wesley Shipp

Kudos to Mario on his new Carol Leifer sitcom with Marlee Matlin. Sounds like it is going to be a blast! Congrats Mario, you deserve it! Getting to see you each week is a great gift!

Kudos to John for recently posting this quote:

"IT IS OBSCENE for anyone to say health care reform is too expensive, when both sides are spending "more than a MILLION DOLLARS A DAY on television advertising to sway the outcome."

Really, doesn't this say it all! This is not about money... Health care MUST PASS and must pass with the public option, if not, why bother. Thanks to John for continuing to champion this battle!

Introducing: Studio Anton-Russ

On October 1st, my pic of the day was a shot of Paul by Studio Anton-Russ. I will be posting more about this wonderful photographer in the future, but wanted to introduce you all to his work.

'Shooting pictures of young men who want to flaunt their sensuality has been a great adventure for me for more than a decade'
Studio Anton-Russ

Over the last several months, I have moved this blog from an 'R' rated blog to a 'PG-13' one. In part this was due to many wonderful blogs being closed. In part it was because I wanted to make Favorite Hunks more than just a place to post 'hot photos'. I want to celebrate talent. I love the work of Studio Anton-Russ. The work is certainly a step beyond 'PG-13', and so it should be. For some reason, some seem to accept the male nude as art as long as there is no penis showing...

I love that Anton has a focus on men who want to flaunt their sensuality. Many models enjoy this, yet for many, to admit it would somehow lesson their professionalism. My guess is most photographers and models want to 'flaunt'. I love that Anton and his subjects are so open about it.

Be sure to check out more of Anton's work at his site HERE:

Favorite Pic of the Day for October 3rd

Great shot of Ian Nelson Foster by Joseph Smileuske.

Pic Series of the Day: Tom Stapledon by Rick Day

When your trying to break into the business is it always a good idea to get in front of the lens of Rick Day. Massachusetts model Tom Stapledon's shoot with Rick is masculine, strong and dramatic, all trademarks of a Rick Day Shoot. I love the recent work Rick has been doing. His roof top commando theme is extremely hot, and Tom looks great!
