The Great Eye Candy V-Day Post (#1 of 3)

February 13th, 2011 (12:17 am)

The brilliant duo  shallowz  came up with the equally brilliant idea for their flisters to fill their friends page with pictures of gorgeous hotties to worship and brighten up everyone's Valentines Day.  And, because I'm *me* and just a tad obsessive/compulsive, I'm going to break mine up into 3 parts, starting tonight.

To quote shallowz  "Post those pictures of whoever just turns you on or inside out. Or those people who are beautiful just because and it doesn't have a thing to do with the physical. Post them. I have no doubts someone else will agree or they'll find someone new to admire/ogle. That's perfect. Interesting. I'm looking forward to it."

Since I went overboard with so many images, I confess I ended up narrowing mine down to the shallow end and excluding actors I admire deeply but don't find gorgeous. Like John Hawkes, who mesmerizes me or Russell Crowe, who moves me like few other actors can but just doesn't turn my crank physically. Of course, YMMV, as it should ;).

Since I chose so many images, I decided to save you the wait of uploading a ton of pictures and placed mine into collages. This first one definitely dates me LOL.  It consists of some of my earliest crushes through to my late teens -- those that were so "serious" I would create stories in my head about them, years before I ever had a clue that fanfic existed.

For those still reading, I challenge you to identify most or all of these guys, or the shows/movies they were in, if you can. A few will be obvious. Others a tad more difficult. 

A couple of hints...

Along with the men who played brothers on TV or those whose characters were "just like brothers", there's a real pair of brothers in this batch. There's also a Canadian sports icon who I worshipped and still have his newspaper clippings to make things a touch more difficult. Most played cowboys, a few military, and all were dreamy to me in my youth and I still hold a bit of a flame for them today. I hope you enjoy these pics and those others to follow. And by all means, feel free to play along and spread the Valentines Day cheer \o/

Oh, my. Heath Barkley, Pete Burke, Joshua Smith and Thadeus Jones, Hitch ... we really do have WAY too much in common when it comes to our tastes in men. :)

Um ... is that one on the boat actually Geoff Duel, Pete's brother? Because that's all I've got for "real" brothers since Charlie Sheen is nowhere on this collage to match up with Emilio and Chad Lowe is nowhere to match up with Rob.

Yup, back in the day, I actually thought Geoff was a little cuter. They were so similar though, in some shots I was looking through to put this collage together, I wasn't sure which one was which.

I recognize most of them. Except for the bottom L pic and the top middle pic. You made me think of a bunch of others that need to be there.
Thanks for posting this and bringing a smile to my face.

You did a collage!! This is so cool. Oh boy, don't you bring back the memories. I can't wait to see your other posts!

I need to find a pic of Sam Elliot. He's a favorite. I love his voice and he can do that twinkle in the eye thing.:D

I did 3 collages LOL

Told you I went a little OCD on this ;)

I came thisclose to posting just a Sam Elliot shot but then decided to go with Sam/Tom/Jeff since I was sooo in love with both westerns/both sets of brothers ::sigh::

All the answers are in my second post found here:

If you're being dated, I'm right there with you.

GUH.

Simon & Simon, the Sacketts, the Outsiders--okay, you picked the wrong Barkley and the wrong Cartwright, but that's okay, more for me. *g* And BABY!RDA. OMG, he was a hottie. And we've already drooled together over Mr. Naughton.

*nom*nom*nom*

*waves* Yeah, I'm gonna have to migrate back overe here a little bit, because you and a few other people I want to keep track of are still here.

Hey, lady. Great to hear from you. I'm glad you're feeling inclined to migrate this way again a little. I do have access to dreamwidth but my brain is stretched so thin these days, the mere thought of learning another site or anything else different is enough to make me twitch right now.

So glad you enjoyed this collage. Of course I'm kicking myself for forgetting other faves from those days but, again, I'm working with limited brain power at the moment ;)

If you haven't been there already, all the answers are posted here: http://may7fic.livejournal.com/37466.html

Yup, I saw the answers in one of your other posts. Pretty, pretty men.

I totally understand about learning another site and being overwhelmed. I just did NOT want anything on LJ to match up to Facebook so I left. I think I've managed to put enough space between this account and FB now, so I'm not quite as paranoid about being over here a bit more. Besides, I *missed* you!

Cowboys & greasers *sigh* one could almost live on 'em.

Nice work! In hindsight it probably would've been easier to do this than what I actually did, but it mine wouldn't have been so pretty. :)
