Blog Anniversary

So today is the 11th anniversary of this blog and a couple of months ago it had blown past 6 million views from every nation, territory, and island in the world except North Korea (go figure). I originally dedicated this blog to my brother, David (picture below), who died in the 1990s from AIDS. Though I can’t imagine there’s internet service in the afterlife I like to think that some of these images I would’ve shared with him. He was two years older than me and we were very close. I think of him every day. He and I (as well a younger sister) were all adopted so we’re not actually blood relatives. Hence why we look very different. Both handsome, but in different ways. He was of Spanish & British descent, tall and muscular, life of the party, and shone like a 10,000 watt lightbulb wherever he went. I’m of Québecois & German descent, fairly short and lean-muscular, blond, and while not shy in the slightest I don’t think anyone has ever described me as the life of the party. Though we had different personalities they complimented each other and that bond has never broken. When I get a chance this winter I’ll update the “About Me” section to give you a better and updated picture of who I am. In the meantime, thanks for stopping by – and on with the show!

  1. What a nice tribute to your brother and I love this blog because it covers art, history, travel, gorgeous hunks so thank you…;)

  2. Wonderful site. Besides the pics of the models, I especially like the historical/vintage pictures Thank you for your commitment and interest.
    On a side note, moi aussi un Quebecois, And I too was adopted as a baby. The good news is, about two years ago through a DNA program, I connected with birth family and found both a half brother and half sister. And our mother. Who knows, with all the relatives I’ve found, you could be one of them! Hugs and keep up the good work!!! Happy Holidays!!!

    • Thanks, glad you’re enjoying the site. I can see from the stats WordPress gives me that 90% of the views are of the models but I’m glad some of you enjoy the other images as well. I have never tried to find my biological relatives (and they haven’t tried to find me either) – mixed feelings about that but if it were even possible I might consider it. What is this DNA program?

  3. Thank you so much for all that you do. I believe that your brother is with you whenever you work on this because you are doing it for him. You & your brother were raised
    Together y’all played together, y’all fought together, y’all laugh together you were a family, you may not have the same blood but you are bond by love.

  4. Matthew…Thank you for the update. Nice picture of your brother. He was very good looking. Great that you connected with a family. True…you never know, but we could be connected on the German side! Looking forward to your own update. Happy Anniversary!

  5. It is very gratifying to see the love and remembrance you have for your late brother. I look for ward to your update. In the meanwhile, I am very much enjoying this webstie and its diversity. Thanks for sharing.
