hung blonde mustache

fine, fine, he has a name – TY WINDSOR – as does his buddy (Jae Vitale); and we know who the photographer is – Adam V. Mild


and the magazine, a Pantheon publication called LANCE (1980) – don’t know where the magazine title comes from (ummmm), don’t know if these gentlemen ever did any film work.

BOB & ROY



Some years back these pics puzzled me (are these from a film?) Some may have figured this out from previous posts that I am actually a bigger fan of Bob Shane than Roy (probably that scene in Heatstroke; maybe just the ‘stache; could be his meatier cock… ). Interestingly, I don’t think Bob was in any film that Roy was not; Roy made perhaps 12-13 films, of which Bob was in 6.

Please take a look at my ROY GARRETT page that is in serious need of updating / revising!


And yes, I finally got my hands on a hard copy of the magazine – BRONC March 1982 – The Mercenaries – and it’s amazing. Photography by Phil Flasche . I’m sure there was no film made, even though it certainly has a very Joe Gage Oil Rig #99 look to it. It’s a Blueboy publication, btw.

sharp eyes will notice there’s a 3rd body in there – perhaps for another post? Maybe just scan the entire damn mag for my devoted readers (I luvs all 4 of you!)?

Masculin – Fire Island Fever


nothing personal stud, but I ain’t looking at you, but at your AMAZING T-Shirt with the Fire Island Fever logo on it! These pics popped out immediately from that magazine with Paul, er, Joe I posted a week or two ago. Photography by Malcolm Hoare.

snowbound

sometime while scouring my hard drive, looking back at the comment from earlier in the day I thought – “WAIT! Why am I looking for the source of a pic from a post OVER TEN YEARS AGO???!!!??” I had, actually, found the model, and I thought the magazine, Playguy, Vol 5 No 4 (1980) and realized I still had that issue! Alas, it’s him, but not the snowy pics – I’m sure it’s him, but where is he all snowy?? After 15 hours without power, this is what I am using the computer for? But, using my search skills, once I found not the same pic, but this pic above that had to be the same photo shoot, I found the issue, something I sold in 2017, but had the html file with my notes – Snowbound (cover/center – Eric Perkins, photographer) – 3 2-page photographs! and then searching my files I found the scans, all 9 of them from my eBay auction, high resolution, but, alas, not the 2-pager that I was asked about… OK, I’ve led the horse to water… wait, is that the expression I am looking for? Exhausticated. must. sleep

who’s your friend, Paul?

Stumbled upon some very nice photographs with a very familiar face, by photographer Malcom Hoare. Of course, Paul is very familiar (but aren’t you really Joe Porcelli?), but his lovely partner while somewhat familiar, I haven’t a clue who he is. Any ideas? Meanwhile, I can see that while this may be from a French publication, the photos seem to have been taken on Fire Island… and there might be a Jack Deveau connection? (That tease is for another post). Which made this that must harder, as the 2nd photo the 2nd guy looks a bit like Matt Harper (AKA Will Seagers) who has done work for Deveau (but, alas, not Joe…errr, Paul)!

rockshots


I was hoping to do a fuller post on photographer Michael Rock, and gay greeting card company ROCKSHOTS – but click that link and it’s broken! Who can forget the “Toto, I don’t think we’re in Kansas anymore.” card??? I know he used Ron Raz a lot as a model (given the chance, who wouldn’t??!!), and if you click thru you’ll see Santa Ron. Michael Rock’s photos appeared in MANDATE (frequently in 1977, but other years as well), most notably the January 1980 issue (see pic below), including cover; also in at least the January 1983 Honcho, multiple issue of PLAYGUY…. Anyone else remember ROCKSHOTS?

oh wait – the Michael Rock / Rockshots article has been moved to the Archives – yeah!

Playguy SANTA

wish I had a better version of this photo by Roy Blakey; also wish I could narrow down the month this PLAYGUY, Vol 5, No 1 – I am fairly sure it is 1980 – December? January?
