Happy Handsome Holidays

Everyone loves fried turkey

Everyone loves fried turkey

Hope you had a Handsome holiday feast this Thanksgiving weekend. We had a lively gathering at Handsome HQ including our now infamous fried turkey (Dirty Handsome), a sampling of Beaujolais Nouveau, grilled veggies with thyme butter (Stoner Handsome), homemade mac-n-cheese (WASP-y Handsome), an as-requested chocolate pie (Dr. Handsome), and much much more. Los Angeles gave us a stunning day of fluffy clouds, blue skies, and warm temperatures. We truly had a lot to be thankful for.

Happy Holidays! Stay tuned to Big Handsome for some Handsome holiday gift ideas…

LSU Football: Get in the Spirit

Sunday, November 23rd, 2008

Dirty Handsome recently enjoyed the annual LSU football weekend at home in Baton Rouge visiting family and Pretty Handsome (on location in New Orleans). This is the first in an ongoing series about the virtues of all things Louisiana.

You and 93,000 of your closes friends.

You and 93,000 of your closes friends.

Traveling to Baton Rouge Louisiana for an LSU football game is one of Dirty Handsome’s most important annual rituals. After a review of the 2008 LSU football schedule the choice was clear: return home for the LSU vs Alabama football game to participate in the fierce rivalry bourne our of over one hundred years of football and an intense, searing, infiniate hatred for Alabama football couch Nick Satan. Ugh, just typing that name out makes me want to cut off my fingers as punishment.

Excitement, loyalty, and passion for LSU football is unparalleled in the sports world. (Read on …)

Dirty Handsome celebrates love and marraige the only way he knows how

Dirty Handsome celebrates marriage the only way he knows how

Some weeks ago a gaggle of excellent high school friends were in town for a wedding. After the rehearsal dinner things devolved into karaoke at Orchid in Koreatown. This was the most respectful photo of the (extensive) set that still conveyed the overwhelming amount of fun we had. Congrats to Ian & Lindsey.

A Very Handsome Halloween

Political costumes were popular this year - a toast to the passing of Prop 2

Political costumes were popular - a toast to the passing of Prop 2

We’re catching up on a few things here at Handsome HQ and finally downloaded our pictures from Halloween night at the “parade” in West Hollywood. While some folks think that Halloween is something of a singularity amongst other evenings, we Handsomely believe that it’s a lot like every other night in Los Angeles: everyone is wearing a stupid outfit that they believe is clever, everyone is out to not-so-secretly gawk at everyone else’s stupid outfit, and somehow everyone still manages to look great in that shallowish Southern California way.

A great number of people in town work in creative industries, work in “the industry” and have access to pro costumes, or are desperate to be in “the industry” and use the night to display just how much they are truly attention whores. This perfect storm of talent, resources, and vanity combines to make some very elaborate, thoughtful, and interesting costumes. Throw in alcohol, transvestites, and loud music and you have quite a party. After the jump we breakdown a few fun scenarios and include gallery for your viewing pleasure. (Read on …)
