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 …

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 …

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 …

Not even Jesus

So a woman recently asked me that old question, if I could name any twelve past or present people, who I would invite to a dream dinner party. Thirty years ago I would have said Gandhi … And I would have said Einstein … But, much to my surprise, I …

Maxim Hot 100

I see that the 2017 Maxim Hot 100 is up and there are some fine beauties for sure.  However, I feel as though things are changing and maybe I’m getting out of touch with what beauty is.  Of course girls like Hannah Davis are always going to go down well …

My Kind of American

So sometimes we steer away from beer and cleavage on this blog and get more serious.  One American movie that I found really fascinating was Love & Mercy focusing on the life and times of the supremely talented Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys.  I really loved this movie and thought …

(man’s age) / 2 + 7

Of course whilst I’m away we can always rely on The Consul to find the young new talent out there.  At 29 Ana de Armas could be considered a little young for men of our generation, but not for a rutting ox like The Consul.  Although 29 is five years younger than …

2049

So the new Blade Runner film will be out later this year. When the original came out, Max, Kentucky and I were just starting at the Universe City. A lifetime ago — 35 years. So it is good to look forward another 30 odd years to the sequel, set in …

Yes Blonde Works For Me

So I’m sure The Consul will hate the song, but I find it hard to turn away from this French beauty, and if you watch closely Alizée does a spot-on Marilyn impression. I also think this really is a perfect example of “In vino veritas” because I want her more after …

No Red Fish But Still Sexy

As all the readers of this blog know, the Consul changed my world when he introduced me to Alizée.  Recently I found the official video for J’en Ai Marre that was released before the Red Fish.  As one comment says: This video makes pedophilia look ok. which I know is close …

The Princess Phenomenon

So after the big success of Beauty and The Beast my wife and I were enjoying another “real-life” version of a Disney Classic: Cinderella.  To my surprise, and deep joy, the lead part was played by the beautiful Lily James whom I first mentioned here. But what really struck me as …

Beautiful Americans

Even though the Americans can’t seem to keep the fruit out of their beer and cider they know their women and not many are finer than a daughter of an American Acting family, the Baldwin Brothers and Stephen Baldwin’s daughter in particular, this years winner of the #1 slot for the Maxim’s …

Travel and Terror

So in one week we’ll be flying into London.  Just one week ago eight people were senselessly murdered by terrorists just 2.5 miles away from our hotel.  Of course you wonder if you should still go, but we all know if we cancelled our plans because of possible threats, they …

The Belle of The Ball

The Consul led us all the way with Emma Watson and now at 27 and in the wonderful “real-life” version of Disney’s Classic: Beauty and The Beast it is confirmed for sure.   Certainly plenty to appreciate. I loved the movie too!

Jennifer Lopez a Latino Beauty

So although I can’t find any posts of Jennifer Lopez in this blog I’ve been a big fan of hers for years.  If you asked my wife she’d say Jennifer is my gal.  She wouldn’t be far off.  It continues to amaze me how Jennifer is just  siz years younger …
