So Does Sarah

And just in case there are any worries that I’m taking Rachel as my girl, we know she is still The Consul’s, and Sarah Shahi is still my main girl.  Very hard not to put Sarah on a pedestal.  Beautiful, funny, sexy and talented.  And don’t forget her new show, Reverie, …

Rachel Still Has It

Given that I’ve been in a nostalgic mood tonight I thought we’d see how Rachel is fairing.  This photo is from last year, and I think I can safely say that Rachel is looking is beautiful as ever.  I might be getting older, but not so much with the rutting …

Hungry for your love

Max has shared his favourite punk and new wave love songs; a pretty good selection, though ‘love’ here is clearly a subject rather than an emotion, including bromance, split-up, rejection etc as well as amour fou. Well, that was punk. A gentler, kinder (gruffer, grumpier) example is the greatest singer …

Captain Marvel

So after the exciting Kong movie with Brie Larson I’ve watched a few of Brie’s movies and you can imagine my excitement when I saw that she will be playing Captain Marvel. If there is one thing I know all Drinking Men like it is their women wearing super hero …

She’s Out Of My League

Continuing my viewing of easy to watch movies without anything too deep to distract you (just like Baywatch back in September) I recently really enjoyed watching the Romantic Comedy: She’s Out of My League. I found it to be a 104 minutes of stress free viewing with the very beautiful Alice …

Helga Is Here

I have always wanted a real beer fridge – one where you can see the beers lined up like soldiers ready to serve 24×7.  And in a stroke of genius during the year long kitchen renovation I mentioned to my wife that what I wanted out of all of this madness …

Simpler Times

Way before I was born, Marilyn Monroe was beautiful and took away all of our pain.  This photo is from 1954 and is a beauty.  I know we are not better off today, with all of our iPhones, computers, social media, and almond milk.  I can only imagine what Marilyn, …

Worship is not Disrepect

So as I look out at the world you can’t help but wonder where things went so badly wrong.  It seems if you are a successful white male you are almost certainly a rapist, or at the very least a sexual predator.  I can only imagine what people make of …

It’s Not All Bad

I feel as though some of my recent posts have been a little “Debbie Downer”, which wasn’t my intent.  Just sometimes life does wear you down a little.  But it is not all bad and tonight my wife and I started watching Seasons 3 of Game of Thrones and The …

Goodbye Hugh

Hard to imagine a world where Playboy magazine did not exist.  I don’t know much about Hugh Hefner but dying at 91 with a 31 year old wife by his side I think he had a good innings.  I know every real drinking man has enjoyed his product and I’m …

Quality Acting But Still No Oscar?

So I’ve been watching a bunch of Jessica Chastain movies and I must say she has me all hot and bothered – she is an extremely talented actress and sexy too (I’m pretty sure the two are related).  I’ve watched these movies recently: The Debt Lawless Zero Dark Thirty Miss …

Stress free

Sometimes it is necessary to chill and just let the Magic Box wash over you.  Earlier this week I was pretty stressed and needed to get away from the damn Computer.  I didn’t want anything too heavy so thought I’d slap on the Baywatch Movie.  Universally panned by the critics, …

Wonder Woman For Sure!

So I just finished watching Wonder Woman for the first time and I loved every minute of it.  I have found that many of the recent blockbuster movies not so busting.  But boy I loved this one.  And if you want to know the secret to everlasting life?  Waking up …

FYOILF

So in celebration of 40 years since The Clash’s first album I’d like to highlight some over 40 ladies that still are in my sights and have not appeared on this blog to the best of my knowledge.

Two Beauties Were Lost

So when they cancelled Boss not only did we will miss out on the talents of Kathleen Robertson but also the beautiful English actress Hannah Ware. The world seems like a pretty messed up place these days  and we need all the beauty and alcohol we can find to smooth out the edges. …

The Other Maggie

Now The Consul likes to reminiscence about Maggie Thatcher’s best feature and rightly so, but what about the other Maggie?  Of course I am referring to Dame Maggie Smith. Downton Abbey has been a big hit in America, but I’ve only recently started watching it myself.  I’m almost at the end …

Ashamed

The Consul is posting so much good stuff recently that I feel ashamed that I’m not on the ball and keeping up with him.  In my defence (spot the British guy!) I try to make a point to only post when I’ve been drinking and officially I’m not scheduled to …

Gentlemen Prefer

What a difference a hair colour makes. So, Erin Moriarty is a screwed up druggy brunette for most of  the film Blood Father, but then she goes blonde when she converts into a good daughter under Mel’s influence (while on the run from a sicario). Now, is this a terrible …

Five Movies in Twelve Hours

My good lady went to help my daughter move into her new apartment this weekend and I decided to stay away from the computer (i.e. work) and just catch up on some movies instead.  These were the five movies I watched back to back on Saturday with a few select …

Popular Culture

The Drinking Man’s Diary is really the center of Popular Culture.  Mostly this is thanks to The Consul and his insight, but  I  like to think I play my part every now and then, however small.  A great example is this post from over four years ago.  Firstly, if you …

Let’s Celebrate Our Differences!

What a difference in our choices of top Bond Ladies: Max vs The Consul only one choice intersects directly: Izabella Scorupco. To be fair I could easily see these ladies on my list:  But the two that really define our differences are: and it is a beautiful thing because if we …

No Kardashian’s Here

Firstly I’m really happy to see Peter Perrett back in business.  As always, thanks to The Consul for keeping me in the loop.  The Only Ones were one of my favorite bands in the 70’s and of course “Another Girl, Another Planet” was featured on every single romance mix tape …

Another girl, another planet

Well, now Max has revealed his Bond babes, I wonder what he thinks about this… Peter Perrett, the man who gave us one of the seminal love songs of the 1970s with The Only Ones, returns with How the West Was Won:   Just like everybody else I’m in love …

My Real Top Six Bond Girls

Ok so after some serious deliberation these are my top six Bond Girls – I’m looking forward to seeing The Consul’s picks soon.  (I excluded Rachel because of her Honorary Bond Girl status, otherwise she would be here of course.)

My Top 18 Bond Girls

Ok so Grace Jones was not really my top Bond Girl, though I’m guessing Kentucky may think differently.  After The Consul posted the question I had to do some serious research on this matter.  There are a lot of Bond Girls to chose from.  My only criteria is that I …
