Meeeoooooww!

My Humps, Pump It, Shut Up -- these are three of the songs that catapulted the Black Eyed Peas to international stardom. They're popular here in the Philippines as well, not only because of their catchy tunes but because member apl.de.ap was born here and grew up here before moving to the US when he was a teenager. I like the Black Eyed Peas, sure, but I'm not a big fan of theirs.

So I was a bit puzzled when my son called my attention to the video of BEP singer Fergie's song Big Girls Don't Cry. I don't even like the song.



And then I saw why. It wasn't Fergie herself in the video or the song that my son wanted to share with me. It was the hero she locks lips with in the video. I almost swooned. He knows I'm so deeply in like with this guy.

Hiro is my favorite hero in Heroes, the one I want to hug because he's so endearing, so cute -- in a teddy bear sort of way. But Peter Petrelli is the hero who's smokin' hot, especially the Peter Petrelli of the future...the one with the scar running across his forehead. (No, NOT like Harry Potter!) Even the way the corner of his mouth goes down when he's talking doesn't take away from his sex appeal.

What is it about slightly scruffy men that's so hot? Pretty boys like Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Matt Damon don't make me go meooowww (my apologies if you're a fan of any or all of these three men). But show me a guy with unruly hair, a five o'clock shadow, a firm physique (no over-developed muscles, please) and wearing clothes like they're no big deal -- and I stretch and purrrrr. Makes me want to throw him in the tub and give him a long, hot bath. I guess it's pretty obvious by now that I prefer looking at big, bad, and dangerous-looking men rather than effete fops or dandies. Men who look like men, in other words. Female (and gay) blog buddies, what about you?

Ooh, Heroes just started screening over here and I love it! I very rarely watch TV but I saw ten minutes of the first show and was hooked. That boy is a cutie.

For a tvholic, I am extremely surprised that I have not been bitten by the heroes bug. Must be partly due to the fact that it plays on thursday the same time as grey's anatomy.

Ever since the first time I saw Matt Damon, I went gaga. Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt and Leo do not illicit any reaction from me.

penfold said...

I dream of having enough hair for it to get unruly...

houseband00 said...

Fergie is just soo hot, Liz! =)

Wouldn't think of sharing her, too. =)

Kiyotoe said...

Ummm.....

Fergie is pretty cute in this video and that's all I'm gonna say about that.

kyels said...

I think guys that have the messy look is cute. Somehow it shows that they are macho --- in a way.

I'm still not bitten by the Heroes bug!

Happy weekend Liz!

;)

gem said...

I like men with quirks, manly men, too. John Cusack is quirky, and not perfect like Brad Pitt. I go weak in the knees for John Cusack.

ian said...

Hey, ladies! I'm scruffy! And quirky! And straight! And MARRIED!!

Couldn't ya just DIE?

Scott from Oregon said...

ahem...

errr.... ummmm...

hello?

girls?

Sad was the day my manly beard that made me look scruffy went gray and now makes me look homeless....

Daddy Papersurfer said...

How many teeth do you look for in a man? - just asking for a friend.

lizza said...

Puss: Ohh, welcome to the legion of Heroes viewers!

Photo: I will get around to watching Grey's Anatomy. I will!

Penfold: Hahaha! But bald can be sexy too.

HB: I love her abs. O, wag nang hihirit! :-D

Kiyotoe: She's one sexy gal! And that's all I'm going to say about her. :-D

Kyels: They're adorable when they're a bit scruffy, aren't they? Have a great weekend too!

Gem: Manly men, oh yes. I like John Cusack's on-screen persona. You're right, he's so quirky and so sweet.

Ian: Haha! You forgot to mention prolific writer. Or is that part and parcel of being quirky?

Scott: Noooo, not homeless! Your carefree smile makes up for it. :-)

DaddyP: Well, tell your "friend" I like a toothy grin sometimes. So at least one tooth, ok? :-D

H said...

confession. I used to like Brad Pitt.

operative 'USED TO'.

but yes, if you're asking then I'll have Edward Norton, Liam Neeson and Jeff Bridges, with a side order of some Ralph & Joseph Feinnes please.

lizza said...

H: The Fiennes brothers!

*swoon*

H said...

oooooooooh I love you even more for saying that Liz.

nursemyra said...

I only have eyes for penfold....

Matt-Man said...

I dig chicks with five o'clock shadow. Have a rocking good weekend Lizza. Cheers!!

penfold said...

Shucks Nursie - I've gone all blushy and that....

Natalie said...

I love Heroes and Hiro is certainly adorable. Peter is HOT I also like the unruly hair and face scruff look. I would post a picture of Tony but he would kill me. It's all too obvious. However, I am saddened by the loss of another scruffy Hero, Isaac Mendez. Drugged up or not the man was HOT. Not to mention DL, he too was HOT. They better do something to replace those guys hotness next season.

Dear my-noypi-mind,

I am so pleased you took this time to write me. Most URL's aren't even aware of my existence unless my framework burps and their gifs and jpegs, or Utubes and Xtubes, or their widgets fidget and all the above refuses to cooperate no matter what I try. Then my existence is made plainly clear to me. Cursed at and poked at, erased and retemplated, discarded or abandoned with my nose rubbed into the mess I really didn't mean to make. But you, my-noypi-mind are different. You have patience. You reinvent me whenever you can. You colour my world. You tease me with chocolate, and tempt me with beer, even knowing the two cause me wind.

Even if tonight is empty for you. I'll wait. And one day, Blog-God willing, I may hold that dear place in your heart that your paper journal held.

Back at you with smooches and puppy licks.
Your Blog.

PS. What are Black Panties? New template design perhaps?
ggg

OOOPs
I meant to the above in the previous post's comment.

Odat said...

Looks like your son is looking out for you! hehe...
I'm with you tho..the slightly scruffy........et. al.
Peace

Travis said...

The Mustang in the video is smokin hot!

I think Peter is my favorite hero as well - but not for the reasons you name! I like that his superpower is managing super power.

While Sylar is a parasite, Peter absorbs the power almost by accident and then must learn to incorporate it into who he is without letting it control him.

Natalia said...

I actually like that song. I can't explain why. I heard it and didn't know it was her. I was a bit freaked out I liked a Fergie song. But I do.

Bond said...

well i am sitting here, my hair in need of a cutting... it is all over (since I just woke up---) have not shaved in two days...

So... Hot or not?

bwahaahahaahahahaahahaahahahaaha

PinB said...

OK, heroes first > I was STUNNED to see the leadguy, the young brother of the congressman looking exactly like my ex-husband, as in...pati buhok (sa ilong) ano ba yan? Kamuka talaga, loka ako!!! It only just started here in the UK and yes I'm pretty much bitten by the bug. Cute nga yung kuya.

Anyway, I will certainly have that drink from BRAD PITT if he offers me one from across the bar.

But H!!!! First Boy George, now Ralph Fiennes????
sistah, sistah, sistah, you and I have dangerously similar tastes...


Matt Damon??? isosoli ko yung drink pag sya...hindi ko ma-take ang cro-magnon appeal nya..!

CS said...

Never heard of Heroes or any of the men involved, so I can't comment on that. And I can't get the video link to show up. If I review in my mind men (both public figures and men I know) I find attractive, there is such variablity that I can't even begin to make a generalization about it. I can say that the more I like a man for other reasons, the more attractive I find him.

Turnbaby said...

Yupp--I like manly---mmmmmmmmm with a little boyish smart assed charm for good measure

Lizza said...

H: Choose between them, can't have both! :-)

Nursemyra: Awww, that is just so sweet!

Matt-man: Hahaha! You're so crazy. Cheers!

Penfold: She just loves you. Or has the hots for you. Either way, cool!

Natalie: Oooo, Isaac was hot too. But DL's still in the story isn't he?

Frank: That was sweet! Enjoyed the puppy licks. :-D But I'm not putting up pics of black panties!

Odat: Exactly. ;-)

Trav: Peter seems to be the most powerful hero so far. At first I thought his absorption of others' powers was temporary. Glad I was wrong.

Natalia: I understand. It's weird how some songs speak to us even though the artist singing them isn't a favorite.

PinB: Kamukha ni Peter Petrelli and ex mo? Pero mas guwapo naman si BB. Naks!

CS: Well, yeah, this post generalizes. (And it was my chance to drool over the guy again.)

Turnbaby: Smartass is good. :-D

Tammie Jean said...

Hmmm... yeah, I like scruffy looking bad boys too. But there is something about Matt Damon in the Bourne Identity trilogy... such an unstoppable badass...

Lizza said...

Hi Tammie. That Matt sure is one popular guy!
