Man Candy Monday
This is Marcus Hill by Rick Day. Beautiful, no?
I adore Rick Day’s work. His colour palette tends towards neutrals with occasional vibrant splashes, and he makes skin and hair look so damn good. He also makes bedsheets and floorboards look good, so textured. There’s often a dingy theatricality in his work or a feeling that reality just got turned up a notch. Plus, the men he shoots are heavenly.
I adore the cover of Alison’s Wonderland; it’s one of my all-time favourites. It’s also the only erotica book I own which has been mauled by the cat. She half-shredded the cover when I wasn’t there. It’s as if this collection of smut is so damn sexy even the cat wants to read it; she just hasn’t worked out how to turn pages yet.
And one more piece of hotness, check out the music video below from Bitter Ruin. It’s stunning, brilliantly and darkly sexy, does some astonishing things with rope bondage and the ending will take your breath away. Thanks to word-of-twitter and the like, the video has shot to very-nearly-the-top of the YouTube charts within a couple of days, and deservedly so.
Bitter Ruin are a Brighton-based band I’ve seen play live a couple of times. If you ever get chance to see them, do! And in the meantime, check out the new video. I don’t think it’s actually possible to watch it just once!
