A Little Eye Candy

Every so often, we need a little candy instead of a real meal, don't we? As long as we don't eat enough to gain 25 pounds and rot out all our teeth, it's certainly okay. I've had a bit of a craving for some empty calories lately and thought I'd share them with you, so here you go.

As far as I'm concerned, forget any half-dressed pop-movie-star-of-the-moment with his ridiculous six-pack abs and bulging biceps. It just doesn't get much sexier than this. And look at that! They're fully-clothed (my God, Baryshnikov even has on a jacket). Then again, you all know what a sucker I am for a man who can dance. Two men who can dance, dancing together? Well, I can almost understand all those ridiculous lesbian fantasies men have.

Take our eyes off the double handsome physiques for a moment, and it's really fun to compare the difference between a tap dancer and a ballet dancer. Even someone like me, who knows absolutely nothing about the details of dance, can tell that they move differently. (But, you know, that's kind of like claiming to read Playboy for the articles or something.)

If this is the sort of thing you enjoy: enjoy! If not, I'll try to provide a more substantial meal in my next post.

P.S. If they didn't dance, I would actually find Gregory Hines the more attractive of the two. In fact, when I was in college, I didn't understand why women swooned over Baryshnikov, and hung posters of him all over their walls, but that was before I'd actually seen any footage of him dancing. I changed my mind once I finally saw him dance.

Ah, thanks for the eye candy! I love Baryshnikov and was so jealous when my sister got to see him dance with an ABT traveling show. Hines is an excellent dancer too and I loved White Knights when it came out!

Love that scene and that whole movie!

Oh this is fabulous eye candy. I did laugh at your comment about men and lesbian fantasies and this being the girly equivalent. I could go along with that! I put my hand up to being another of Baryshnikov's adoring fans. Although I think that watching anybody do something they are really good at makes them sexy - it's a charisma thing.

I LOVE this movie. I think I saw it about a kazillion times when it came out. Hmm. Clearly I need to pick up a DVD.

Courtney said...

Oh my goodness, where did you FIND this? It's totally excellent - thanks for sharing.

Stef, oh, I would have been very jealous, too, if my sister had gone to see him and I hadn't. I loved the movie, too. I think I need to see it again (it's been years).

Lilian, "nice" says it all.

ZM, we should watch it together sometime.

Litlove, I'd never thought of it, but you're right about the charisma.

Carrie, yes, I might need to pick up a DVD, too.

Court, "excellent" is another good word for it. Glad you enjoyed it.
