Sigh.

Sigh.

Haven’t we been over this already? Trading one hick for another, the Vikings released John David Bo0ty of Shreveport, LA (where good people go to dieĀ©) and signed the (suspiciously?) zombie-like Favre.

I’m seriously when I say that we’re over it.

Get a New Pair of Swim TRUNKS

…and spend money doing it. You wear your swimsuit when you’re already half naked (also known as “half Handsome” in some circles), so we think it’s important you put forth at least a touch of effort to find something that makes you look decent. It’s what women do with their suits ad infinitum, and what you do with all your other suits (work, formal, sweat, birthday), so why not bathing suits? The assumption is that you won’t wear it that often, that no one will care, or that it isn’t worth it.

WRONG. How long has it been since you got a new swimsuit? 3 years? 5 years? Longer? Are you using a random set of board shorts you found in the bag of a loaned surfboard, or an awful orange pair you got in sale one late October in Florida at a Wal-Mart that were the only ones you could find, but hey, $7-for-a-swimsuit is pretty good? (Dirty Handsome = guilty of both) (Read on …)

Photographic evidence of summer anticipation

Summer is right around the corner, and now is the time to get your self together. We’ll be posting a few things over the coming months to serve as a checklist of men’s fashion advice, grooming tips, and healthy steps to take to make sure you’re ready for summer. We will make this your Summer of Hansome.

Don’t trust us? Handsome Headquarters is in Southern California, where there are only two seasons: Summer and Summer Lite. We got to beach in January. We know our shit in this particular area.

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 …)

Handsome Recommends: I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell

See 'Handsome Party' for Pictures as Such

It gets worse/funnier than this

Handsome Recommends: I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell by Tucker Max. Hell is a collection of stories about a collection of wild, debased, yet somehow relatable stories about one man’s quest to fulfill his only whims at the total expense of everything and everyone else. While we were never readers of the website that started it all, Hell tops our list of funny books.

We spend a great deal of time commuting to and from Handsome Headquarters and need something to keep us busy if we take transit, like furious Blackberry emailing or the aforementioned humorous books. I know what you’re thinking: what’s Handsome about a bunch of borderline porn stories told by a drunk, self-serving asshole? First and foremost, lighten up; Tucker’s stories are completely hilarious and perfect for plane/bus/train rides. Second, we’ve all had our un-handsome moments like: (Read on …)

Handsome Field Trip: Picking Pinot

Clone 777 Pinot Noir Grapes, ready for the bucket

Clone 777 pinot noir, ready for the bucket

Last weekend we went to the Santa Ynez valley in Santa Barbara wine country to pick some of the best pinot noir grapes in the region. Was this part of some wine country tour or easy-street wine tasting? Nope – we were at Clos Pepe Vineyards volunteering for the annual harvest of chardonnay and pinot noir wine grapes. Volunteering for manual labor may sound like a ridiculous thing to do, but on the contrary it’s really quite handsome.

We’re hardly oenephiles, but being slightly knowledgeable about wine has many practical applications, including but not limited to:

  • impressing dates
  • making wine store trips less intimidating
  • adding to our formidable arsenal of smug party conversation topics

Congratulations to our dear friend who is begining a new kickass job at Marvel. As per usual, the agency world will miss him much more than he misses the agency world.

Handsome in NYC – An Update

Sunday, September 28th, 2008

Handsomely pointing out the UES at the Jackie O Reservoir

After overcoming significant obstacles, we were finally loosed on vacation to celebrate friends’ upcoming marriage. Unfortunately, between overcoming the aforementioned obstacles and traveling to the East Coast we didn’t have much time to keep the world abreast of all things Handsome. To satiate your desire, we hunkered down, put on our coding hat, and have provided you with a tasteful image gallery of scenes from New York. We were there during one of the few weeks a year where NYC’s weather rivals that of Los Angeles and really enjoyed the first tastes of fall. It’s Handsome to spend a week walking the city, seeing friends, and drinking heavily – even if Wall Street destroys itself and investment banking as a practice dies while you’re there. Gallery after the jump…
