Some Of The 50 Most Stylish Leading Men

GQ picked the 50 most stylish leading men of the past 50 years. I thought I would post some of them here for your viewing pleasure. I'm going to divide them into separate posts since there's so many of them. I'll then post them over time. So which of these men do you like the best?

John Cho Is Ready For His Close-Up


John Cho has been mostly known for his roles in the American Pie and Harold & Kumar comedy franchises until recently. This past year he played the role of Mr. Sulu in the blockbuster reboot of Star Trek. He was also one of the stars of the recently canned television series FlashForward. While I love martial arts movies, it is great to see an actor of Asian heritage play other roles. These photos (by Nathaniel Goldberg) come from GQ. Besides loving the suits that John Cho is wearing, I'm a big fan of the sets used for this photo shoot.







P.S. I wanted to thank all of those who offered such great tips about three column templates. I really appreciate it. I'm going to be checking all of those out. I'll be doing some experimenting to see if I can possibly find something I'd like to do here at my blog. I have been wanting to revamp my blog some if I can.

I also wanted to talk about something. I work for a cleaning service. I found out around six weeks ago that my boss lost the contract at the state office that I clean. This is where most of my hours are at. I had actually been cleaning this building since before this man took over. I had worked for the previous holder of the contract. This man here kept us on when he got the contract.

I've been really stressed out the last six weeks wondering who had gotten the contract. We heard a lot of rumors. We finally found out who got it. I do know the man. I've always had good dealings with him. I just don't know yet whether he plans to keep me and my co-worker on or not. If he does, I also don't know if he will cut our pay and hours.

I definitely don't want to lose this job. I really depend on it. Besides this particular place I clean, I clean a bank for one hour a night. I sure can't live off of one hour a night. I need more hours. I can't afford to lose this cleaning job at the state office. I'm also hoping if he keeps us on that he won't cut our hours or pay. It's been a struggle as it is. It would be even harder on me then. With the economy being in the dumps, it's hard to find other work around here. I know people who have been out of work for a year or more now. There just aren't jobs around. I hate to think of having to try to find something.

I don't often get personal at the blog. I did want to share what's going on in my life with my friends here. I hope you will keep me in your thoughts and/or prayers. I really would appreciate it so much. Thanks. God bless you.

John F. Kennedy: Presidential Style

With the election of John F. Kennedy as the 35th President of the United States, the golden era of Camelot began. John and Jackie, along with their two young children, revolutionized what the First Family could be during their short time in office. They were a great looking and very stylish couple. Whether you agreed with them politically or not, there was no denying that at all. JFK is one of my favorite style icons. He looked amazing whether he was in a suit (doing his job as leader of the free world) or dressed more casual (as he relaxed with his family). It's such a tragedy that his term and life were cut so short.

Terrence Howard Is A Man Of Many Talents


I am a big fan of Terrence Howard. The actor's credits include
Crash, Four Brothers, Hustle & Flow, Idlewild, The Brave One, Iron Man, etc. He also released an album called Shine Through It a couple of years ago. He's a talented man. Plus I think he's got really cool style. Here are some photos (by Peggy Sirota) from GQ back in 2007 that I wanted to share with you. I hope you like them. Let me know what you think.







Here is the video for Terrence's song Sanctuary. Enjoy!

P.S. I'm seeking some advice. I know I've mentioned this before, but I wanted to get some help if I can. I really want to revamp both my blogs. The main thing is that I want to switch up to a three column template. I've looked around, but it's like I can't really find the right code. I see people around with some really cool looking blogs that have three columns. I'd love to still be able to use a blog header like the one I've got on this and my other blog. All the templates I find don't seem to let me use a header at all. Anybody have any suggestions at all? Do you know of or have a template code that I could use on this and my other blog? I would greatly appreciate any help at all. I'm not a tech whiz at all so I usually have trouble with this sort of thing. Thanks so much. You're the best.

John Slattery Is Another Mad Man

I am so thrilled that a new season of Mad Men has started up. I wanted to share these photos (by Nathaniel Goldberg) of John Slattery, who plays ad exec Roger Sterling, from GQ with you. Who watches Mad Men? Who are your favorite characters up there? Are you excited about the new season? Let me know what you think.







P.S. I won the following award awhile back from The Great White Dope, but never posted about it. I thought it was time I did.
