On a practical level, this picture also takes care of a little ABAD business...I'm going out of town after tomorrow's post and won't be back until after the 4th. So here are 3 of the guys I would be posting in my absence. Take small bites, chew completely before swallowing, and savor them until I come home.

Here's a trailer giving the flavor of Season 1, including a little bit of Tom Hiddleston's character getting picked on by Sir Ken's--

I'm really looking forward to seeing this movie, but I'll have to wait for the DVD [late July] because the closest theatre showing it is in San Francisco--not happening.
In the meantime enjoy this wonderful video/interview with its stars--

I saw 'Die Hard' on TV today for the umpteenth time, and I never get tired of Rickman-as-Hans Gruber, although I am a bit weary of his silly band of German thugs. Other than their sexy boss, the bad boys seem about as dated as the shoulder pads in Holly's blouse.

Nah, that isn't a picture of Joey as a colt. It's just a cute picture of a young horse and its mommy that illustrates how the need for young creatures to jump on mom before she has a chance to finish eating is universal, even across species.

1) The first thing that pops into my mind when I see this picture is Rob, Chip, and Ernie Douglas from 'My Three Sons.' I don't feel so much like a prehistoric relic when I talk about old TV shows now that we have Antenna TV on the cable.
2) Oh my god, Mr. Hiddleston, must you dress exquisitely for every appearance? This from the man who says his only fashion rule is to "not look like a tit" when he leaves the house.
3) When you think of the most-oft photographed subjects, you think of the Taj Mahal, the Eiffel Tower, Yosemite, the Grand Canyon....there will never be a shortage of new photographs of these wonders. And why is that? Because they are timelessly beautiful. By inference, then, there will never be a shortage of pictures of these three beautiful boys, especially the tall one with the gorgeous smile.

And this is no idle request. Do it for me--I would vote every day the poll is open, but they seem to recognize me and tell me I've already voted.
* P.S.-- There are about 20 seconds of Ian in all of [only one of] the bonus features on the 'Scandal: S1' DVDs.
I have no words.....just Pfffffsht. That's my only....word.

OMG! 800 Brits have been posted on this blog. What, tell me, has become of my life?
Well, it's a lot of fun and beauty.

The helmet under the arm is a really nice touch. All credit to the artist--found on Tumblr, probably sourced from Deviant Art.

I know an opera singer who is a dead ringer for Scarlet O'Hara when she sends one of her lovely brows heavenward. Clearly it is not a skill we are born with--to elevate the brows independently of one another. My friend told me that she spent hours in front of the mirror after she saw 'Gone with the Wind' perfecting the trick. Gotta wonder where Ian got his technique.

This video shows you just about everything I [we, millions of us] love about Tom Hiddleston. I could do without the Harry-Potter-esque background music, but.....just watch it.
So speaking of Tom, it has been in the works for Brit a Day to get a new lineup, and Mr. Hiddleston will most definitely be a part of it. I love all my British lads, and I love introducing new faces to my friends as well as discovering a few sensational fellows that my friends have been telling me about.
Beginning today, the menu will include [with a few nice words about each]....
Sundays.....Alan Rickman [Still? Yes. Always.]
Mondays....Benedict Cumberbatch [would be included for Sherlock alone, never mind War Horse, reading stories to children, yada yada]
Tuesdays....Fan Art [Life is too short not to devote one day a week to great art, you know.]
Wednesdays....Matt Smith [The Doctor, My Doctor]
Thursdays....Henry Ian Cusick [will be included until the world recognizes his great talent and yells it from the roof tops]
Fridays.....Tom Hiddleston [I. Just. Can't. Even. And you know who you are.]
Saturdays...Editor's Choice [because I can]
I hope you will continue to enjoy ABAD as much as I do! And on that happy note, I'm going to post my absolute favorite picture [so far] of Tom Hiddleston. Might as well start at the top of my game....
