Megan Fox in GQ. Look! There’s other stuff in this issue too!

October 10, 2008

My wife didn’t like it when this issue of GQ arrived in the mail. She didn’t say anything. She didn’t have to. I could tell by the way it had been left lying on the dining table, for me to see as soon as I came in the door.

There’s really not much to say about this that I couldn’t say about a bunch of magazines out there, except for the fact that it reminds me so much of british men’s magazines all through the 90’s and their porn but not porn approach to content. The pop-art type stuff in the layout is cool, but it’s really overshadowed by… well, by Megan Fox’s tits and mouth, which this article may as well have used as a title. Am I turning into my mother by saying that I almost feel used just because this arrived in my mailbox? Hey, at least it feels like I (and my male weakness) are being taken advantage of, and not the woman in the photo for once.

Also in this issue, there’s a pretty awesome looking shoot with Dennis Quaid. I dunno why it struck me so much, but I REALLY like it. I think the stylist, location guy, photographer, everyone did an awesome job. I shot him once at his house with his then new wife and didn’t think what we got was all that great (to be fair to me though, and because I’m an asshole, I wasn’t even really there for a reason other than to make sure everyone turned up…it was one of those ‘we’re not paying you because look at the opportunity you’re getting’ gigs. You know, the usual shit publishers pull. Oh and the person who supplied clothing for the shoot was a first-class PRICK. Ahem. But Dennis Quaid and his wife were very nice and accomodating.) Anyway, this shoot looks like he had a lot of fun, and it really shows in the pictures.

Macbook Air airport hi-jinks

March 18, 2008

Apparently this guy got stopped by airport security because of his MacBook Air. Well, the article may question if the TSA staff or whatever they are called are doing their job. I’d say this proves that regardless of if they have recent tech training, this particular group showed that they take security seriously. And that’s the point, right, feckless traveler?
