The Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles is the first American museum exhibition devoted to Bob Mizer and Touko Laaksonen (a.k.a. “Tom of Finland”). The exhibition features a selection of Tom of Finland’s drawings and collages, alongside Mizerâs rarely seen photo-collage “catalogue boards” and films, as well as a comprehensive collection of his groundbreaking magazine Physique Pictorial, where drawings by Tom were first published in 1957.
The exhibit opened earlier this month in Los Angeles and runs through January 26, 2014. Do you live in Los Angeles or have plans to visit in the coming weeks? You may want to check out this exhibit. I would love to see something like this come to the ICA Boston. More information is available on MOCA’s website here.
2014 Orthodox Calendar cover
Each year the makers of this calendar reach out to let me know when their new calendar is available. It has always given me a good laugh – who knew orthodox garb could be so interesting. Maybe this will give some of you ideas for Halloween costumes later this month.
You can purchase a copy of the 2014 Orthodox Wall Calendar here.
Photographer: Jordan Matter
Earlier this summer the Imgur Photo Gallery called “Dancers Among Us” started to go viral. The photos from Jordan Matter are beautifully expressive and in my opinion humanize a style of dance that can at times seem out of reach and other worldly. Want to see more? Click here.
Wingmanning is a Tumblr site started by Drew Phillips (in photo above) and Scott Cleveland (behind the camera) that depicts Drew standing next to or near couples exhibiting public displays of affection (PDA).
The Tumblr site motto is “Make out in public? We’re behind you.”
Love this site – thanks to BuzzFeed for sharing.

When I watched this video last week it already had over 700,000 views so many of you may have already seen this. Regardless, it is funny and worth watching. Note that there is some swearing so keep the volume down if you are watching at work or near someone who might be offended.

Last Friday Boston was bombarded with what I hope was the last snow storm of the winter. Spring officially starts next week, but you wouldn’t know it considering the plummeting temperatures here in Boston. Thanks for this pretty photo of Commonwealth Avenue in the Back Bay, snapped by OnlyInBos.
Brenton Parry who writes the entertaining blog Aussielicious has a photography exhibition opening on February 15th in Sydney Australia, and I wanted to wish him much success in this – his second show in as many years.
A few months ago I posted a teaser video Brenton had created to give you a taste of what one can expect from his show Freedom Teaser.
You can see more of Brenton’s photography here.
The HuffingtonPost called this photobomb from a rogue llama an “instant classic” and I kind of have to agree with them. Taken by Erica Kuschel while on vacation with her husband, this llama apparently is no shrinking violet and inserted itself in Erica’s photograph of the ancient Incan city, Machu Picchu.

Are you like me and do you still like to have a calendar that resides outside of a phone, tablet or computer? Perhaps you are also like me and have yet to purchase a 2013 calendar.
Super sexy Aussie model, Daniel Garofali, has a calendar that is sure to please. You may purchase it online here. 50% of the profits from sales of this calendar go to Kiva.org, a non-profit that is working to end poverty.
The 2012 – 2013 calendar comes with many seductive photos of Daniel, but before you buy you may want to check out the calendar and DVD teaser as well as the calendar and DVD teaser part II on YouTube. Again, you may purchase it online here. People are also more than welcome to send me photos of Daniel, whom I find wicked gawjus.
