50 Shades of Grey and the magic of Mike


50 shades of grey trilogy

50 shades of grey trilogy

The “50 Shades of Grey” trilogy, which has occupied slots 1, 2 and 3 of Amazon’s best-seller list for months, toted through airports and subway stations by un-self-conscious women, discussed on morning chat shows (author EL James has appeared on “The View”and “Today”), and at family get-togethers. James is estimated to be earning over $1 million a week in royalties.  Even my favorite radio DJ Delamar Arias is very open in saying that she loves reading it in the expense of being the target of her male co-DJs Chico Garcia and Gino Quillamor jokes.

In case you hadn’t heard: Channing Tatum was once a stripper and the tales told in his new film, Magic Mike, are steeped in fact, and based on his own life: In the late 90’s, Tatum dropped out of college and worked as an exotic dancer in male revues in Florida, performing under the name Chan Crawford.

The movie is doing pretty well in the US and is currently at no. 2 last weekend.  Haven’t you noticed that other hits like “Twilight” and “True Blood” are basically about shirtless men?

Women today are definitely changing.  They’re starting to be more open with their feelings and are not afraid to show that they are powerful in more ways than is expected of them.

So should we expect more movies with shirtless men soon?

    Hot diggity dog, that was high quality stuff. Who creates this for
    you? I’ve got 5 blokes that manage my site content, but they kind of stink after browsing this. Do you do all your own content or do you outsource?
