Fluff(y chests)

Life is busy at the moment – very busy with two work projects that are fun but are eating up a lot of energy and then there’s also family life that keeps me occupied. Added to that I’ve been having many restless nights ever since my dad died, some with horrible nightmares, although I am happy to say those are lessening now. Anyway, all of that leaves me a little drained and tired and I can’t make myself write long and thoughtful posts on here… So, I’ll stick to fluff for now.

What kind of fluff, do you ask?  Well, fluffy chests, I guess! Although the one is way more fluffy than the other…

I’ve been downloading and rewatching all sorts of Richard Chamberlain stuff that I hadn’t seen or thought about in forever! And I’m having a ball also reading up on him a bit online. And then I came across this picture that I remembered loving some, oh, 25 years ago or more! I think I may even still have it in an old “Films and moviestars” scrapbook I have…

It wasn’t neceessarily just the bare chest and strong arms that I loved. It had more to do with the casual posture and the expression in the face. And such a handsome face!

Something in that Richard Chamberlain picture reminds me of this Richard Armitage picture…

I have never enjoyed those bare-chested-men calenders. I mean, I can appreciate a nice looking body but those pictures don’t do much for me. These two do! I think it may have to do with the emotion of the faces combined with a strong yet somehow vulnerable image of the body. Maybe it’s the almost childlike sitting on your knees thing – I don’t really know what it is, but these two images do something to me…. perfect fluff for a late Thursday afternoon. 🙂

Oh, and while we’re talking fluff – this one just now springs to mind as well (Pierce Brosnan in ‘Laws of Attraction’)…

“This is very frivolous, Esther!” my dad would say. And I would laughingly and wholeheartedly agree. 🙂

  1. First, hugs and hugs. They say the first year after losing a loved one is so very very hard.

    Fluff. Ah we love it! Really precious we do. I prefer a ‘less perfect’ body to fantasize about and look at. Much preferable to those chiseled, hard-bodies. 🙂

    1. Huh… I was sure I had replied to this earlier today…

      Just wanted to say thanks. And yes, I am more for the less perfect body as well, although these do look pretty perfect to me. 😉

    I don’t especially like beefcake calendars either, but I think it’s because they are overproduced. All three of these pictures are masculine but not with every single detail put in order or airbrushed to perfection. They have beautiful, human bodies — not surreal, superhuman ones.

    Hope you’re okay and passing on good thoughts for a time when you still need care.
