Hugely popular underwear & swimwear brand, /baskit/, has enlisted one of Australia’s hottest rugby players to be the face of their 2011 image campaign. International sex symbol, Nick Younquest can be seen sporting the brand’s high quality and fashionable bestselling styles throughout the powerful, yet approachable imagery, titled “It’s All About The Details“.

The series of images feature Youngquest in various vignettes that showcase everyday life. Whether it’s a morning workout, taking a shower after a swim, lounging in bed with the morning paper, or checking business emails on your iPad, /baskit/ is the ideal “go-to” brand for the man with an active lifestyle. The beautifully taken images are set in the backdrop of a luxurious Los Angeles hotel room.

“We are thrilled to have Nick in our upcoming campaign,” says Eric Schwers, /baskit/’s CEO. “He is truly a gentleman and looks great in our product. Like /baskit/, Nick is the perfect fusion of the fashion and sport lifestyle and we are proud to join him as both our brands expand across the planet.”

I couldn’t agree with Eric Schwers’ statement anymore. A few months ago we featured Nick Youngquest in our weekly “Sports Stud” feature. Youngquest is sexy, athletic, masculine and stylish. The perfect person to represent your brand. Check out the scorching hot photos below.

Elizabeth Taylor is recovering in hospital after congestive heart failure early this week. Her family is by her side at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. She is 78 years old. Her publicist released a statement yesterday stating:

“Her family and close friends are appreciative of the warm support and interest of her loyal fans but have asked that people respect her privacy and allow her medical team the time and space to focus on restoring her back to health.”

Elizabeth underwent surgery for her heart condition in 2009 and often kept everyone aware of how she was doing via her official Twitter account. There have been no updates or tweets since her recent visit to the hospital as of yet.

Tyra Banks is channeling her inner Elle Woods, and heading off to Harvard. Though, she won’t be taking law classes like the “Legally Blonde” heroine, Banks, instead, has enrolled at Harvard Business School. The 37-year-old model turned mogul is taking an executive education course geared towards entrepreneurs. The MBA program costs about $31,000 in tuition for a comprehensive two-week owner/president/management program.

I have to commend Tyrant for wanting to educate herself. Considering she’s valued at a reported $90 million due to her ventures which include Bankable Productions, she’s achieved what plenty of people could only dream without a graduate degree. Her entertainment company is behind “America’s Next Top Model“, ABC’s “True Beauty” and her now defunct daytime talk show.

Tyra seems to be embracing her experience to the fullest. As you can see in the picture above, she’s sporting some serious Harvard fashion couture. She’s also been spotted in campus dining halls hanging out with some homies. Her Wall Street investment banker boyfriend, John Utendahl, has also been seen with the former supermodel all around Boston taking in the sites and cuisine.

The 10 Weirdest Craigslist 2010 Ads

In: Donovan, Gadgets & Tech, Random Reads

This 2010 year end list is a little late, but it was brought to my attention recently by one of the many public relations companies I deal with. What it lacks on timeliness, it more than makes up in hilariousness. I know Craigslist is used for a multitude of reasons, but didn’t realize to what extent people actually used it for. Personally, I’ve only ever used it to look for tenants or to sell something I no longer needed. It’s pretty awesome for those two uses. I can only imagine the number of replies some of the following posts received.

Check out the following 10 real Craigslist ads and vote on which you think is the “weirdest“. To each their own is what I say.

Sports Stud: Gabe Kapler

In: Patrick, Sports & Health, Totally GAY!

You may want to go to first or second base with this week’s hottie…or maybe even go for a home run. Baseball beefcake, Gabe Kapler plays Major League Baseball as an outfielder for the Los Angeles Dodgers. He’s Jewish and is known for his longball hits, so naturally, his nickname is Hebrew Hammer. I mean, the same probably goes for his play in the bedroom.

For a man born in Hollywood, California, this 35 year old’s movie star good looks suit him well. This tattooed DILF used to be a body builder and has several tattoos (11 to be exact). He’s been a professional ball player for a long time, is married, and has two sons. One of his tattoos is even his wife’s name “Lisa” on his left shoulder. He and his wife co-founded the Gabe Kapler Foundation, with the mission on educating the public about domestic violence and helping women escape abusive relationships. What a great cause!

Yesterday, I brought to you, Rihanna’s beautifully filmed commercial for her first fragrance, “Reb’l Fleur” and raved about it. Not only did she look GORGE, but the minute long spot had great cinematography and a bit of a storyline, not to mention also very sexy. While that celebrity fragrance ad was done well, let me share something on the opposite end of that spectrum. Ladies and homos, I present to you… “Unbreakable“. If the fragrance smells anything like this cheesy commercial, I predict a big ol stinky mess for the duo.

Khloe Kardashian (the only Kardashian sister I can stand) teams up with her real-life hubby, NBA superstar Lamar Odom for their new unisex scent. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the couple gives you an inside look at their relationship. And by inside look, I mean both of them being half-naked. Sex sells, right? The two married in 2009 and have been the picture of wedded bliss since then. They always seem to look good on the red carpet, but question is… do they smell good?

Vancouver Olympics: One Year Anniversary

In: Dan, Random Reads

The one year anniversary of the Vancouver Olympics is this upcoming weekend and it’s hard to believe that an entire year has passed since the incredible sporting event touched down in our city for seventeen incredible, record-breaking days. There are so many moments I still hold dear and often reflect upon when at parties and simply chatting with friends who shared in my experience as well. I don’t think you could find a Canadian who doesn’t remember exactly where they were when Sidney Crosby scored the golden goal for the Canadian Men’s Hockey Team, in the incredible overtime finale against Team USA.

It truly was a moment in time that will define out generation, and a story I will be passing along to my children and grandchildren, as soon as I start popping them out! Looking back over the past year there truly has been a change amongst Canadians and their extraverted desire to show their pride for the white and red. I too dusted off the red Olympic mittens from last season, a little pilled around the edges, and was quickly reminded of the moments that those mittens were exposed to. From the Opening Ceremony, in which Patrick and I danced our hearts out, through the Heineken Holland House and then GM Place converted into Canada Hockey Place, all the way to the Olympic Closing Ceremonies that I watched from Molson Canadian House in False Creek. Those seventeen days are permanently etched in my heart alongside millions of Canadians alike, and with that I wanted to share a beautiful tribute, and a reminder of how truly great this country really is…

Naturally, this perfect compilation video is set to our national anthem, O Canada. We truly set the bar with the most gold medals ever won by a host nation, and we continue to impress the world with our humble hospitality. Keep it up Canada and bring on Sochi 2014!

Johnny Are You Queer? Do You Want $1,000?

In: Music, Patrick

Josie Cotton scored a hit in 1982 with “Johnny Are You Queer?” and in celebration of her new album ‘Pussycat Babylon‘ they’re’re running a Youtube contest and asking fans to make their own ‘Johnny Are You Queer?” videos. They’re giving out $2000 (grand prize is $1000) in cash prizes to a handful of winners. Should be a lot of fun…and who couldn’t use an extra thousand dollars?

I was barely born when this song came out, so when asked if I was queer, I wouldn’t have known. “Johnny Are You Queer” is ranked #81 on VH1′s “Top 100 Greatest One Hit Wonders Of The 80′s”. If you haven’t heard it before, give it a listen and see what kind of fun you can have with it for the contest.

For more contest details and information on how to enter, click here. For inspiration, listen to the original song below. Hmm, maybe Homorazzi should put together a video?
