Eyecandy Monday

Well ... I picked up a movie magazine this weekend and there was a new photo of Jason Momoa, who's starring as Conan  in the forthcoming film. Oooooooh ....
My first reaction - he brings the literary character to life in a way poor muscle-bound Arnie never did. Robert E Howard, when writing the Conan stories, frequently described his "sullen" looks and his "mane" of black hair:

"His brow was low and broad, his eyes a volcanic blue that smoldered as if with some inner fire. His dark, scarred, almost sinister face was that of a fighting-man, and his velvet garments could not conceal the hard, dangerous lines of his limbs."
Yep. I think Momoa's got that down.

Momoa is best known of course for playing Ronon Dex in Stargate Atlantis. Pity the dreadlocks had to go - but word is they were so heavy they were too painful to live with!

I need a cold shower now...

Oh, while we're on the subject of movies: GO SEE INCEPTION!!! It's awesome! Remember how you felt the first time you watched The Matrix? Well, Inception is as gloriously mind-blowing, in a similar way. An action blockbuster that doesn't insult your intelligence - how great is that?

Planning to see inception this week, as a matter of fact. Glad to hear you enjoyed it!

I'm sure you'll love it, Craig!

Oh holy crap!

I didn't know!

Yeah, he's ... he makes all other men around him look like teeny insignificant asexual nerdlings. Even the big ones.

He's a god among men. Yes he is.

How scary does he look in that photo? And sexy? I'm not sure I didn't recognise him at first cos I was too busy thinking oooo!scary eyesOH!ABS!!Damn!Sex! Etc.

Danielle told me the other night that women are socially conditioned to like nice, non threatening men (as if that could be the only reason for liking such a person) but that little theory of his does not explain my desperate attraction to scary-ass Jason Momoa as pictured here...

See? I perform a valuable service disseminating hot male info to the world. Ahem.
And I think straight women are attracted to good-looking men, regardless of personality. Sex trumps everything!

He doesn't have the smouldering blue eyes. But


he's Conan. Though the blue eyes are important so I hope they give him contacts.

Although since they didn't bother in PoP I suppose it would count as payback.
