The Mystery of Orlando Bloom

So I was reading and was 'reading' (ie scanning quickly because I couldn't care less about this event) an article about the Pirates of the Caribbean sequel world premiere in California and I of course was exposed to pictures of Orlando Bloom. And I couldn't help but wonder the same thing I wonder EVERY time I see pictures of this dude: why is he considered hot? Am I alone here? I don't think he's ugly or anything, but I honestly see nothing special about this dude. To me he seems skinny and effeminate and pointy and........I don't know, he just has ZERO appeal to me. Even the pictures of Johnny Depp, who looks like a hobo here, have WAY more appeal to me than Orlando Bloom. Of course, that's not really a fair comparison, because Johnny Depp is one of the hottest men on the planet, and the crush I've had on him for most of my life shows no sign of abatting, even with the scruffy hat and purple sunglasses.

I ALSO don't see the appeal with Keira Knightly, but that's a story for another day.

Anyway, please let me know if I'm alone here, because I'm constantly surrounded by women who think he (Bloom) is just the absolute hotness. I don't CARE if I'm alone, y'all can have him, but I'm curious, you know?

Here's the link to the article on dlisted (and I must point out that no matter what I still love Roseanne Barr):

I love this band - I Am The World Trade Center (named well before 9/11 - even so there apparently has been controversy over the name.) ANYWAY not my place to debate that, especially since I can't be bothered getting into it. One reason I love this band is because singer Amy Dyke was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma in 2004, and while I obviously do not know the band personally, from what I've been able to read, Dyke is doing very well - see this article for a great interview with the other member of the band, Dan Geller - near the end he mentions that Dyke's recovery is going well.

I just love a come back story, you know? An 'overcoming adversity' story, good stuff. Especially when we're talking about potentially fatal diseases.

OK so this has gotten a bit more dramatic than I intended. ROLE THE VIDEO!

World Cup Eye Candy 2006 cont'd

I swear I am not trying to force my own favourite hotties onto the WCEC 2006 podium - another reader, we'll call her 'Jenn', because her name is Jenn, is also a fan of Michael Owen. So I'm taking advantage of that, and posting another Michael Owen picture.

WCEC 2006 is coming along quite nicely........quite nicely indeed..........
