“Lose My Mind,” “Glad You Came,” “Heart Vacancy” and “Gold Forever.” These top tracks from UK man-boy band The Wanted are among their best, even though most of their chart-toppers haven’t hardly made it to the US yet. My friend DJ Bifford Michael introduced me to these pop stars via YouTube clips on my Facebook Wall or through exclusive tracks in an email over a year ago. Their current soaring popularity in America is being slightly shadowed by adolescent-boy band One Direction who have also come through hard with “What Makes You Beautiful” that has also been featured on television juggernaut Glee. Even both bands are similar in sound, it’s The Wanted that are acting like the adults in this situation. Handsome frontman Max George is the one the British tween-age girl in my heads screams for when watching them perform! Keep these guys on your radar. Hopefully this peaked interest in UK pop music will fair superb for The Saturdays who will be hitting our soil running very soon.
Here we go Palm Springs! Summer has arrived with a few breaks coming our way but not of much length. Our Palm Springs oasis begins its climb up the thermometer and triple digits are only around the corner. Wear the sunscreen! No dogs in cars! Drink plenty of liquids! And know that this too soon shall pass. Take a trip up the Tram for a cool getaway from the scorching heat in the valley! Make plans to getaway, we are. If it’s just for a day trip, your sanity will appreciate the time.
Onward, desert soldiers!
Living in Palm Springs and working at the premiere fitness facility in the desert offers up some of the most delicious eye-candy one can handle. From porn stars to bodybuilders to celebrities and the like, one will NEVER know who will waltz through the doors. With the Palm Springs Gay Rodeo in town, rather in Banning, the cowboys and cowgals are all in the mix around town this week. Events are happening here locally and out I-10 at the rodeo grounds. Even, Blatino Oasis Weekend is back where black men and Latin hotties mix-it-up at parties and events. Just yesterday I gave big hugs to studs Pete Finland and sexy Vin Marco (pictured above) who were pumping up at World Gym. Vin told me he’s even moving to the desert in July! Look forward to seeing him around our parts. Finland is here shooting images for the rodeo calendar and is looking beefy as always. Have known Pete for many years now and am glad we’ve stayed in touch.
Life I mentioned, the celebrity count that has come through our doors is quite high over the years. From reality to stage and screen, we’ve seen them all. For a few: Nicole Kidman was there training while husband Keith Urban was in rehab at Betty Ford; Harry Connick Jr. has breezed through while in the desert for vacation; Ricki Lake came in with one of favorite members; even silver fox Anderson Cooper has been in. Iconic COLT Men Wade Neff and Mickey Squires also workout in our famed facility! Then you have the droves of adult film stars that have gotten their pump on before shooting scenes to create that box-cover ready look. Even some of us members and employees are stars in our own rights.
When in Palm Springs, World Gym is THE only place to be for the pump and rump you need!
Just a quick post about something I love and know a lot about, MEN! Oh, I’ve come to love my MacBook ever so. Especially the feature that simply allows me to click and drag an image off a webpage and save it to my desktop. Instead of right-click-save, I have this lovely means of saving an image. And have I ever… I tend to get carried away with it and could’t imagine the amount of web pictures I’ve borrowed from various domains over the years. No Tea – No Shade, but I do love me the sight of a hot man. These two guys look very happy with one another. Hunkalicious! I DIE! Just love how the teammates bare feet are touching ever so. Wet Speedos, too. Are you serious?!
