Lucrezia Magazine - Updated & Live

I never through it would happen so quickly, but YES, Lucrezia Magazine, or should I say, the reinvented Lucrezia Lucrezia Magazine is now up and live.

The new site has so many more features, including something it didn’t have before - a search button. It also is a valid RSS feed. It has a rotating news header on the main page. It’s worth all the all nighters that I have put in over the last seven days.

There is another thing I am in the process of adding to the site and that is a sidebar of four blogs that will be rotated from time to time. I haven’t decided on which blogs and prefer to leave that open. The only thing I require is for the said blogs to be more than six months old and to have an avatar that is 40 x 40 pixels. Those interested can email me via the email that is listed on this blog.

Anyway, I’m off to bed.

Enjoy the new mag.

I am going to take a complete day off from the Internet.

Red Hot Steel on a Sunday

Fashion designers are cruel. Calvin Klein, you supreme sadist you! He's made me rethink my Sunday morning donuts, and no, it has nothing to do with the teeny tiny bras that populate Myer Department store here in Sydney and my over-the-top boobs.

There I am, sprawled on the bed undergoing the Sunday morning ritual of reading the Sunday Telegraph with the coffee, cinnamon donuts and Sylvester, the cat that my son named (I was thinking something more along the lines of Ghengis or Atilla, I blame Warner Brothers cartoons), when I flicked through the magazine liftout and nearly choked on my donut. The coffee went down the wrong way.

Dh2 I don't know what to say about the new ad campaign for the Steel range, to mark 25 years of Calvin Klein underwear. The drool got in the way.

"Yum."

"Yummy."

"About time..."

"Oh my effing god!"

"Will you look at that aristry!"

I didn't have a chance to say anything. I was caught out, by my son no less.

"What are you looking at? What's up?"
Then he called me a perve.

I did try the artsy excuse ("The photography is wonderful, the light and shade..."), but it didn't washDjimonhounsousteel  with him. To him, I was perving at a half naked man in the Sunday lift-out magazine. It's not like it was Playgirl or something, then I'd have more explaining to do.

Of course Djimon Hounsou isn't mere eye candy. He's a great actor, has been nominated for Oscars, as attested by his role in Blood Diamond and now he's the latest, actually the first African model in a Klein ad. Hence my, 'about time.'

The photography is by Peter Lindbergh, and right now I wish the Soho billboard was here in Sydney.If they had this billboard along Sydney's Parramatta Road , it would literally stop traffic. What beautiful photography. What sinew!

Physical poetry.

Feel free to click the images to enlarge, and no, I am not responsible for copious streams of drool, or sticky keyboards.:)

Glitz & the Phwoar Factor

Okay, aside from the fact that there is no football club here in Australia that can afford David Beckham, I still think that the US of A doesn't need any more glitz :P. Why couldn't they come to Australia? I've discussed the phwoar factor in this blog before, but to recap, it's like peeling the skin away from your scalp, zapping your brain with 1000W and swallowing your tongue simultaneously (my analogies are gross, I used to major in anatomy at uni, okay?).

Becksposh2It's quite unlike me to sit down with a cuppa to watch a bit of celebrity-paparazzi-reality TV, but I did it and...I found it fun. NBC's Victoria Beckham: Coming to America was an unexpected surprise. You don't normally see a celebrity walk into a sex shop to purchase a blow up sex doll to use as a decoy. It's what you call sexual subterfuge; a pack of photographers waiting, cameras at the ready, to see their faces drop when the celebrity they've been following all day (by car, motorcycle, whatever) turns out to be a humble sex doll dressed in designer gear. I don't know how she can do it on a day to day level. It's something I don't normally say, but kudos. She shrank back in horror, her body language up in the air the second a group of LA socialites starting the money-speak. A viewer could see the everyday Victoria twitching with anxiety; what makes money vulgar isn't the money, it's talking about it on an ostentatious level, which horrified her a tad.

Anyway, the point of this post isn't the show, which was quite funny (I'd be like Howard Hughes if I hadBecksposh  to confront a pack of paparazzi, I'd probably give some hapless snapper a Bwork uppercut or something), it's the hot pictures in W magazine. Do check them out.The second photograph (to the right) struck me, because it's one of my favorite intimate positions, and it's an image or position, that can be a rare find on the WorldWideWeb, a web filled with the overabundance of reverse cowgirl, ass in the air doggy variants and pussy shots.

Okay, I'm heavily into tattoos as well, which upped the phwoar factor (multiply ten to the power of a hundred, fuck, make it exponential), but this photographic spread is quite hot indeed, not to mention highly erotic. Tommy and Pammy eat your heart out...and no, the Beckham's don't need a home made 'allegedly' stolen sex tape.

The Great Procrastinator

I sat facing the monitor, researching to my heart’s content and I’m not fond of research. It’s a must for stories that are set in a particular timeframe, if only to fill in tiny bits and pieces, much like filling potholes on the road; stories need to be smooth, flow along a certain line. Too many bumps, and readers think, ‘what the fuck, this doesn’t make any sense?’ and this is a writer’s nightmare, no?

There are days I don’t particularly care about research. You can’t start a story based on research; it’s secondary to the story, a lot like Poly Filler. Today I thought of taking the bus down to Gould’s. It’s a bibliophile’s orgasm; you’re there, surrounded with musty books. It has books, vinyls, cassettes (remember those?) magazines, and many vintage Playboys. There are piles and piles of books, sometimes you have to negotiate your way through an aisle, and if you can’t find a book you have your heart set on, you just ask Senor Gould, and he’ll know where the book is situated.

It happened to me one afternoon. I’d previously borrowed a book from Ashfield local library, only to return it months prior, a momentary lapse on my behalf; I usually keep every book that comes my way, library copy or not. So I decided to buy the book, except I found that it had been out of print at the time, and so I gave up my search until I walked into Gould’s and it sparked up within my thoughts. It’s possible, I thought as I glanced at the two-tiered store, so I made my way to the biography section. It wasn’t an essential book, just one of those biographical books that serve as general knowledge.

Taste, Embrace.

From the taste, right down to the very embrace; all kisses should be like this.

Moments in Time

Gse1 There are two doses of sexy that I’d like to introduce. The first one has been a long time coming, and you can find it here. Stelios has many other photographs on his professional site, Viceatelier, that are eye catching, sensual and picturesque. I like ‘Capturing the Moment,’ because it’s a fun sexy moment and an unusual pose.

Sexualsongad

If you’ve been looking for that sexy soundtrack or simply desire something threaded with aural sensuality, then visit Sexual Song. There you’ll find a sample selection of hot - and I mean hot - tracks that are scented with orgasmic melodies and beats. It was difficult to extricate myself; as soon as I recover from my iTunes overdose in the earlier part of the week, I'll get round to downloading one of the two albums: Sexual Songs 1 or 2. Each song highlights a specific morsel of the erotic dance, be it foreplay or a part within the foreplay.

Eddie Ostrowski has updated his web site and has also included new photographs of Nora Marlo for visitors to visually sample, and there are many visual treats.

The Bride of Circumstance

Oh, to be a bride. The concept of being a bride changes from one era to the next, one society to another and between cultures. It’s what I thought when I visited Marrickville Town Hall yesterday to view A Bride’s Exhibit: A Tale of Brides Past, which documents the migration of women to Australia from Greece, women who were brides and the striking thing or commonality among all cases documented, is that many of these arranged or ‘by proxy’ marriages stayed the distance; divorce was Aggeliki unheard of during the various historically documented struggles. Even though poverty existed, especially after the Civil Wars, World Wars, Greek-Turkish wars, among other things, the importance of establishing a family via marriage remained a high priority and this priority was not related to romance, sexuality or sexual identity but more along the lines of maintaining cultural identity, which - on a lesser scale - maintained the identity of the individual.

The bridal stories on display at Marrickville Town Hall are often accompanied by photographs of the letters of introduction sent by potential grooms to their prospective father-in-law, detailing their interest, letters that don’t qualify as love letters. This didn’t unfold spontaneously. It relied on mediators or matchmakers. Such matchmakers weren’t paid to complete a task. Many were bystanders who saw an opportunity for a daughter, and voiced their suggestions to parents who sought a better future for their children.

There are many tales where the women, then girls, had their educations cut short due to limited finances, who tended the fields, and completed many manual tasks. Although Greece wasn’t a communist country during the eras documented (Forties, Fifties and Sixties), many families were like working collectives within villages, where all children worked for their family’s common good, particularly in rural areas or villages where people owned land.

This exhibition is inspired from Brides, the film directed by Pantelis Voulgaris that documents the voyage of 700 Brides (Greek and Russian) from the Mediterranean to America in 1922, after upheaval in Asia Minor, to meet their grooms, men that they have only met via a photograph.

Favourite HNT

This week is favorite HNT of 2006, and I thought I'd get in for this one (because I get to pick rather than pose and snap a pic - I only just got home). My favorite HNT is actually one that that appeared via Eroticandy It was one of three, and this is the pic:004

Oὐροβóρος

Starting a new page, on a new platform, is starting another chapter. One of the important elements is getting the page to look right for one's self. I started off with the banner, the image within it is a well known picture of Nastassja Kinski, taken by Richard Avedon ( 1923 -2004 ) and it's been one of my favorite pictures for more than a decade.

For Nastassja, this photograph essentially consolidated her iconic status as one of the most erotic-sex symbols of the era. Taken after her film debut in Tess (Tess of the D'urbevilles), this photograph was pretty much seen around the world. It could be equally as famous as Farah Fawcett's red swimsuit shot.
