Naked Lady of the Week: Lindsey Vuolo

Blowhard, Esq. writes:

lvcoverAs the nakedless Playboy redesign is revealed this week, I thought I’d celebrate one of my favorite playmates from the past couple of decades: Miss November 2001 Lindsey Vuolo. After gaining playmate status, Miss Vuolo spent a few years in the Playboy trenches doing newsstand specials and making sporadic television appearances but she never attained the stardom of her colleagues like Holly Madison or Kendra Wilkinson. Possible she had the bad luck to be a somewhat generic brunette in an era of blonde bombshells. Or maybe her religious beliefs prevented her from fucking Hef to get ahead, who knows.

Not many photosets of her out there, as the pictures below show, so let’s be appreciative of the nudity we have. Have a good weekend.

Quote Du Jour: Silly Love Songs

Blowhard, Esq. writes:

2014-10-20-dave_h-thumb

During the nineteen seventies, when I was writing rock criticism and pop songs, and playing music, I used to wonder why there were so many love songs. More specifically, I wondered why ninety percent of the pop songs ever written were love songs, while ninety percent of rock criticism was written about the other ten percent. My own practice complied with these percentages. When I wrote songs, along or with co-writers, I wrote love songs — happy ones and sad ones, mean ones and sweet ones, hip ones and square ones: hundreds of them. When I wrote about music, I wrote about other things, mostly about music history, politics, drugs, hanging out, and playing the guitar.

Naked Lady of the Week: Sophie Sweet

The Hungarian Sophie Sweet, also known as Sophie Moone, helped make European nude modeling an internet thing. Her lithe, hairless bod and gummy-toothy smile are, to my mind, emblematic of an aesthetic that characterized internet cheesecake in the early 2000s, one that may have grown out of alternative “amateur” magazines of the era. It was an aesthetic that emphasized naturalness, smoothness, and faux-cheerleader cleanliness over Vegas-style crassness and exaggeration, and it’s probably rightly thought of as a reaction against the glistening, pumped-up phoniness of late “Playboy,” “Penthouse,” and the like.

Not that Sophie couldn’t do sophisticated — she always looked great when photographers like Viv Thomas put her in lingerie and glamour makeup. But it was almost impossible to make her look decadent or obscene. A best-friend’s-little-sister aura hung over everything she did. Until, that is, age took that away from her, and she became just another handsome, perhaps-a-tad-too-thin woman taking her clothes off for the camera. Happens to the best of them. According to a commenter at TheNudeEU, “her real name is Renata, and she runs a local pet shop in Budapest now.”

Nudity below. Have a great weekend.
