Happy Friday!

On my way home from work, I was trying to decide what to write. Should I do something about the new piece I'm working on? Or about personal struggles that improve your character? Or about the debate between first and third person POV? Blech. It's Friday. I want to give readers something to look at. Something to think about. Something to make them drool! So, behold... Skylar's Best of the Week: Three sexy pieces of eye candy who make down time and media overindulgence such a joy.

Best New Movie to Rent/Buy:
Boondock Saints II: All Saint's Day
The sexy accents! The gratuitous violence! The... humor??? Yes, while the first movie was a drama, they've thrown in laughs to the sequel -- and it works! Surprisingly enough to the SO, I decided that this was a must-buy movie after the first half hour.
For some reason, I find humor and comedy much more soothing to the soul than drama. "They" say crying is cathartic; I just get puffy eyes and a sore heart the next day. No catharsis in that.

Best New Song: "American Saturday Night" by Brad Paisley
I'll admit I'm biased, because I think Brad Paisley is just too sexy. He can sing. He can play guitar. He LOOOOVES his wife and kids AND playing for a crowd just seems to make him so happy on stage. But besides all that *swoon*, he's got a perfect voice perfect for upbeat songs like this. He sings about how America really is an amalgam of other cultures -- a good reminder for us all. Oh, and did I mention how unbelievably good his voice sounds?
Don't even get me started on that hat and cowboy boots...

Best TV Show: Burn Notice on USA
I've been addicted to Michael Westen, the main character, since the inception of the show three seasons ago. He's smart, attractive, funny, and can out-MacGyver the man himself. As a burned spy, Michael has been released back into society -- well, thrown is more like it -- without money, job history, or much of a legal identity. All he has are his friends and the skills he's honed through decades of espionage. Its my go-to show on Hulu since 10pm is waaaay past my bedtime.

Ok, I've shared mine... have you seen/heard my "Best Of"s? What are your own? Help me expand my list of talented sexy entertainers!

Well, since I totally agree with you on Brad and Burn Notice I think I'm going to have to check Boondock Saints II out! :)

For me, Gerard Butler or Matthew McConaughy (right, PG??!) in just about anything (actually the less they're in the better ;) hee hee!)

Great topic for a Friday! A Friday with SNOW here I might add... ugh!!! Enough already!

PG Forte said...

Oh, yeah, Erin, gotta agree with you there. And today I'm actually going to the beach, more's the pity.

Skylar, if you have HD channels you can watch Burn Notice at 7 p.m. Just a thought...

Skylar Kade said...

Oh I wish I had HD.... the only reason I have cable at all is because its part of the rent. Still, on Hulu I can rewind and watch him in action over and over.

And I'll TOTALLY second Gerard Butler. He's just too hot.

Love Burn Notice! We watch it on DVD, though, and they haven't released last season yet. :(
