BosGuy brain teaser

riddle, exercise for your brainEach Friday morning I post a riddle to get you to think outside the box and exercise your brain. If you are stumped, share it with a friend or colleague and see if you can figure out the answer together. I’ll confirm answers in the afternoon so don’t worry if you don’t see your comment posted right away. I want to give everyone a chance to guess.

The R-rated riddle I shared last week was so popular that I thought I’d share another this week.

This week’s brain teaser:  What has hands but cannot clap?

Provincetown International Film Festival June 13-17

gay film, lgbtq film, independent filmThe annual Provincetown International Film Festival (PIFF) opens today.  Now in its 21st successful year, PIFF is the largest cultural event in lower Cape Cod and a premier cultural event, attracting 10,000 plus film-goers, movie buffs, and arts patrons.

This 5-day festival will showcase 45 features and 29 short films. Twenty-seven of the 70+ films were directed by women, reflecting the festival’s strong commitment to women-directed films (something Hollywood doesn’t champion despite lip service provided at the podiums of award shows).

This year Sean Baker will receive PIFF’s 2018 Filmmaker on the Edge and Molly Shannon and Chloe Grace Moretz will receive PIFF’s Excellence in Acting award. For more information and to get tickets visit their website at provincetownfilm.org.

This week on Instagram: keenixfeeting

brenton photography, Phoenix KeatingBack in early April my friend and photographer, Brenton, took several photos (including the one shown above) of this handsome man. Needless to say I was hooked and started following Phoenix right away. His IG profile more or less says it all, “Look I spend too much time at the gym so this is pretty much just half (to full) naked photos of me.”

Phoenix doesn’t disappoint with lots of photos of him in and around Australia either working out or at the beach, but decide for yourself by taking a peek at his account and seeing what you think. BTW, there are a few more shots of Phoenix at my friend, Brenton’s, account, brentonparryphotography.
