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.

Handsome Party: Sing Star

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 …)

Whatever the whiskey tells you, it is always correct.

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

Pretty Handsome and his one Jewish friend

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 Salute – Mrs. Peeps

Monday, October 6th, 2008

Update: Peeps lives! After a harrowing night of animal noises and activity in backyard, Peeps returned shaken and devoid of tail feathers. Per my step-mother’s text: “We feel very blessed to have her back. Life is very short. Each day is a special gift Love, mom.”

May our dear, Handsome friend Mrs. Peeps (nee Mr. Peeps) rest in peace high above in chicken heaven. FACE! After returning home from their evening walk, my father and his lovely bride found a mess of feathers and no Peeps. 30 minutes of searching later turned up nothing but a rogue raccoon sighting.

The story of Mrs. Peeps is a ridiculous one that can’t easily be committed to the likes of a blog like this. In short – (s)he was acquired on a whim, bedded down in my father’s home, and was dutifully ‘trained’ by dad’s lovely wife Pam. No matter how outlandish it was IS that there was STILL TOTALLY IS an actual chicken living in the house with them, the chicken bought BRINGS joy to many both in Baton Rouge and afar through tall tales passed over email, mobile phone pictures, and the like.

We’re incredibly sad HAPPY to see Peeps go RETURN!, particularly having not had the opportunity to meet him/her in person/chicken. Our thoughts go out to the Tremblays on Hood Ave, who are probably more sad than they’ll let on. FEELING BLESSED. Tribute SALUTE gallery after the jump: (Read on …)

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…

Handsome Party – The Conduit of Power

Sunday, September 14th, 2008
When you're the Conduit of Power, you must j.k. livin'

"The 'J' is for 'Just'; the 'K' is for 'Keep'"

Per the request of a certain reader (we have readers?) – a photo from Sunset Junction. When Pretty Handsome and Dirty Handsome combine using the coveted Matthew McConaughey-provided J.K. Livin’ armbands, awesome things are bound to happen. Like road sodas, some rocking music, or photos where it sort of looks like Dirty Handsome has arm muscle (we have arm muscle?).

Handsome Party – Always Party with Mom

Take me (and mom!) out to the ballgame...

Take me (and mom!) out to the ballgame...

As you may have surmised, the Handsome Association really likes to party in Los Angeles. This is made worse when family is in town, as our family also really likes to party. In honor of (most) of my family getting their power back after Hurricane Gustav (coverage at our real job here) here’s a photo of mom and I singing our hearts out during the 7th inning stretch at Dodger Stadium.
