|puipui||11:18 pm - Monthly Picspam: PEOPLE IN SUITS OMG!|
AT LAST IT IS FINALLY PICSPAM DAY YAY! And this picspam is huge, OMG, so very very large, mainly because I adopted a fairly loose definition of "suit" that includes pretty much anything where a jacket and/or tie is involved, and also because I kind of got a little over-enthusiastic as I went along. IT JUST KEPT GROWING AND GROWING OUT OF CONTROL OMG! Counting the previews, it's our second largest picspam, after Muppets, because nothing will ever top Muppets.
LET'S GET BUSY!
But first, let's talk for a second about our macro this month. It is Sigourney Weaver! And this particular picture was our very first monthly drag from July 10, 2008. Unfortunately, I have been completely unable to find any other pictures of Sigourney Weaver in drag, but I think this one is pretty damn impressive all by itself, right? In fact, this picture is so impressive that here a few months ago, probably unbeknownst to our comm here (but knownst to me!), it got posted somewhere on afterellen.com, netting this picture something like 7000 hits over a two-day period and making it probably the most popular picture in the entire Hot Daily album.
I say "probably" because it actually has some pretty stiff competition from this picture of ultrahot athlete Balian Buschbaum, a consistent favorite with offsite guests and recently linked on what looks like some sort of Asian-language gay porn forum, and this picture of Patrick Stewart from the Over 40 picspam, which got posted to Reddit and ended up getting a bunch of comments on the Photobucket posting that say things like "Fight the ignorance Captain!" and which apparently made a whole lot of people's days, which made me happy. Yay!
Also popular? The Manamana macro. No, I don't know why, either.
LET'S HAVE SOME PICTURES OF PATRICK STEWART IN A SUIT! :D :D :D
But when you start with Patrick Stewart, where can you possibly go from there? How can you possibly find anyone else to compare? It is hard, I will tell you, but let's go with ROBERT DOWNEY JR.! :D :D :D
Some of today's images are going to be reposts, BTW, such as the following picture of Rafe Spall, originally posted here and the final inspiration for our Suits & Ties tag, bless him.
This is not because I didn't look -- oh, heavens no! -- but because I just really cannot find another picture from that particular photoshoot anywhere, which is a damn crying shame because he is super fucking hot in that suit OMG.
Also, it's hard to find pictures of the ladies sometimes. This is also a damn crying shame. BUT HERE ARE SOME PICTURES OF JANELLE MONAE AND HER SUPER AWESOME HAIR OMG!
Do you know what has been the most super helpful thing ever in finding pictures for this post, though? Even more so than stealing from myself? THE MOST HELPFUL THING EVER HAS BEEN YOU OMG! Yes, you, with your names and your links and your pictures and, not to put too fine a point on it, YOUR TAKARAZUKA OMG!
Takarazuka ladies seriously know how to wear themselves some suits, yo.
BUT THAT IS NOT ALL THAT YOU HAVE GIVEN ME! OH NO! You have also given me Inception.
Remember when Joseph Gordon-Levitt was that cute teenager from Third Rock from the Sun? Yeah. When did he get all smokin' hot? Because wow. I approve!
Also, Watanabe Ken, because fuck yeah.
In fact, really, Inception could easily be a picspam all on its own, which reminds me that I haven't posted this month's poll yet. WATCH FOR IT! XD
And, in the meantime, here is Dule Hill. YAY! :D
Dule Hill is a super good tap dancer, did you know that? I think that's awesome, and also it's a super cheap segue into FRED ASTAIRE OMG!
Fred Astaire could wear the hell out of a suit, I'll tell you what. He had all his suits specifically tailored for dancing, and when he picked them up from his tailor, he would try them on and then go jumping and dancing around the room to make sure they fit right and wouldn't restrict his movements. Can you imagine?
So awesome OMG. *loves*
But we must move on! WE MUST! And since we're here in the vintage already, let's go with MARLENE DIETRICH! SQUEE!
God, she was so hot. No one will ever wear a suit like Marlene. No one. *swoons*
That was kind of the golden age of suits, though, really. And also the golden age of hats and cigarettes, apparently. LET'S GET OUR VINTAGE ON! :D
Okay, yeah, that last one of Sidney Poitier isn't actually vintage, BUT IT'S STILL HOT OMG! And yet I am stumped again for a way to follow so much awesome, because DUDE. Sidney Poitier.
I say we go with a different kind of so much awesome. NAMELY, RACHEL MADDOW! :D
I LOVE YOU, RACHEL! ♥ ♥ ♥
And since we're on the subject of politics...
BUT WAIT! I have pictures of Bae Yong Joon! YAY!
And also Joseph Fiennes! MORE YAY!
Also also, J. August Richards! SO MUCH YAY OMG!
Also also also, Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie! WHEEEEEEEEEEE! :D
And now I'm going to take a break for a second, because I need a bit of a rest, and also Photobucket's uploader is being mean to me again. ;_;
OKAY! At least one Photobucket-related browser crash later AND I'M BACK! YAY! And to celebrate my backness, I've brought you some actual copyediting on the previous part of this post, plus Isabella Rossellini! Whoo!
Also, Allison Janney!
Also also, Kate Moss!
It's so much harder to find pictures of women in suits than it is to find pictures of men in suits. Please enjoy these pictures of Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto in suits while I cry over this fact. (Specifically, while I cry over my inability to find pictures of Zoe Saldana in a suit. WOE!)
Wait wait, what was that you were saying? You'd like some pictures of Hrithik Roshan appearing in GQ? THAT CAN BE ARRANGED! :D
Also by request, except this time it was a real request and not an imaginary one, ANT & DEC!
Also by actual real request, here is Enrique Murciano!
And not really by request but still incredibly hot, here is Daniel Dae Kim!
And here is Neil Patrick Harris!
And Matt Bomer!
And Richard Ayoade!
And Oraine Barrett!
And David Tennant!
And Richard Armitage!
And Simon Baker!
And now it's time for a break again, because I'm kind of pushing it on the Photobucket thing, and also I need some Gatorade or something. Mmmmmmmm, electrolytes.
OKAY I'M BACK! We're in the home stretch now, my friends! Only... uh... about 110 pictures left to go? And it's the bit with the long long line of people with only one or two pictures each that always takes forever? ;_;
How long have I been doing this? It feels like days.
Oh, hey, more copyediting! I've fixed my horked-up cut tag text! Go me! :D
BRING ON THE HOT!
OH MY FREAKING GOD THAT IS A LOT OF HOT RIGHT THERE! I think I might be ready to pass out and die now. BUT FIRST!
AND THAT IS YOUR ABSOLUTE FINAL JULY PICSPAM! YAY! Tune in tomorrow (which is more like today at this point, DAMN YOU PHOTOBUCKET! *shakes fist*) for your new August poll, and also possibly a SECRET SCREENED POST OMG for your Crushes of Shame! Oooooooooh.
Good night, my darlings! Have fun in the comment section! ♥ ♥ ♥
