I wanted to have a small space on the net to post pictures and comments about films and TV shows , of course there's lots of sites around that you can post pictures of your favoutite and hozziest star , but you couldn't really write about them and say what you thought of their performance or the style of the movie or TV show . A few years ago I brought a great book 'Idol Worship: A Shameless Celebration of Male Beauty in the Movies' by Michael Ferguson .
Ferguson asks: "So where do you draw the line between who's pretty, who's beautiful, and who's handsome? When do you stop being pretty and start being handsome? Can't someone be all the above? Of course. And that's why Rock Hudson, a man surely on the handsome side of pretty, is in this book and Sean Connery, a man surely on the handsome side of handsome, is not. If that doesn't make sense to you, you're not alone. I have applied no strict rules to the selections other than my own sensibilities. Bruce Willis ( Well I Liked him in Moonlighting and he was great in invincible ) did not make the cut. Rob Lowe did."
The book discusses stars from Valentino , Tyrone Power, James Dean , Jan-Michael Vincent to Gael Garcia Bernal a real diverse mixture . Its a very warm and rewarding read and it even encouraged me to go out and buy a few more DVD's; including Youngblood starring Rob Lowe. What can I say yet another guilty pleasure .
The books now revised and its in its 2 edition , which I really should get around to getting .
