Man Muse Medley

I bet you think I'm going to post just a bunch of naked men, don't you? Well, you're probably half right, but I am actually ALSO choosing men who engage my mind... Muses need a little of that cerebral flow thing.


Calliope is the Muse of Epic Poetry, so her representation needs to be filled by a writer, yes? I am going to go with Tom Robbins here, as he is a twisted guy who always gets the creative juices flowing, even if they end up seeping into really strange places...


Clio is the Muse of History, so I am going to go with a CLASSIC. Pretty darned clear what Clark Gable has on HIS mind *fans self*


Erato is the Muse of Lyric Poetry, so I will go with my favorite musical story teller, Art Alexakis.

But wait!!! Erato is also... you know... Erotic... I need a dirty mind involved here, too! Best Dirty Song writer is probably Chad Kroeger *nods decisively* (yes yes, now we can start weaving in the naked part...)


Euterpe is the Muse of Music. I am going with an old favorite here because the guy ROCKS and is one of the sexiest men around in spite of not actually being great looking... (I LOVE that as an element... the radiated sexy because of ATTITUDE) So I present Steven Tyler...


Melpomene is the Muse of Tragedy and so I will go with my favorite recent Television Anti-hero... Sawyer.


Polyhymnia is Muse of Sacred Poetry... if you were here yesterday, you've seen this one... but if fighting demons doesn't make a guys sacred... am I right? Ahhhh, Sam...

Though I don't want to leave out the Dean fans... MAN, they'd make a nice set of book ends... You know... assuming I'm the book and all...




Terpsichore is the Muse of Choral Dance and Song, which HAS to be Lucius Malfoy (any of you who've read my fan fiction stuff will get this...) This shot was taken from the Playwitch spread... *cough* Is it weird that I know there is such a thing?


Thalia is the Muse of Comedy, and though I like him in other stuff, he is DIVINE in the wacky stuff... (and this is the best picture of him EVER, though I might miss the eyeliner...) Johnny Depp...


And finally Urania is the Muse of Astronomy, which I am using loosely here, as Middle Earth is more other world than in the sky, but still... Mmmmmm Aragorn...


So there you have it... some of the men who inspire me...



And finally, a couple of Can't Miss M Blogs (extras today, as there are a lot of Ms and it was already hard to limit it this far...)


The Middle Ages:  Deb and Barbara are nothing short of divine. I love these two. Their blogs are done together—they alternate who leads... she gives her thoughts on a topic, and the other responds... It's honest, funny and fabulous.

Missed Periods and Other Grammar Scares:  I LOVE this... it starts with a funny situation, then leads to grammar... and for a geek like me, it is PERFECT. I love grammar humor (and I sometimes even learn something)

Musings of a Palindrome:  Hannah and I seemed to have near misses for a long time until I finally read some of her comments and realized we have nearly identical tastes in entertainment... since then, we've become good friends.

Mystery Writing is Murder:  Regulars around here know Elizabeth is my idol. She has this social networking stuff DOWN... when I started blogging, I stumbled across her and have been following her around ever since. And with good reason, she was recently awarded (for the 2nd year running) Writer's Digests top 101 Sites for Writers seal... You definitely need to be there.

Stephen Tremp said...

Have to admit I scrolled through this post as quickly as possible. I need to stop by ALex's blog now and get a look at Kate Beckinsale. Have a great weekend.

Michael Offutt said...

You have +2 nerd points for featuring Sam from Supernatural shirtless on your blog. Way to go!

Marjorie said...

*fans self* Tami, you really know how to wake a person up.

Michael Di Gesu said...

Oh, You TARTNESS will you ever not post half naked men?

I guess it's part of being a TART! LOL

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

I see Hannah got a double feature today! And Aragorn is an inspiration to this Ninja.

Nate Wilson said...

Too...many...muscles...

I'm sure glad my muses tend to keep their shirts on. Especially the men. The women, too, since otherwise I might be inspired but it'd be hard to get my mind to focus.

Don't get me wrong. These are all fine selections for your muses. I just could have done without the pec pics. :)

Regina said...

I love all your muses here. These are awesomesauce!

Helena said...

Very inspiring... Very distracting... But what I don't understand is how those two guys on Supernatural have such perfect bodies when they never have time to work out?

GigglesandGuns said...

Hard to comment. It took so long to get through the post I can't remember what wanted to say. I have to go back and study this. teehee.

LuAnn Schindler said...

Ooo, it's getting a bit hot in here! Off to find my manly muse...

Hold my hand: a social worker's blog said...

LOL @ the comments. A very entertaining post!

Interesting links.

Sawyer. And let's not forget Harrison Ford circa Witness.

And my husband, eve though he doesn't have long, blond locks.

VR Barkowski said...

Hee hee! There's definitely a gender division with regard to comments on this post. Personally, I think it's the perfect 'M' post. Why? Because each new image produced the same reaction from me: mmmmmm.

Ella said...

Thanks for the visual feast; I love how you wove it~ Great muses!

ihaveabackbone said...

Oh My Gawd...talk about the most scrumptious serving of eye candy in a long while! Yum Yum!

Crystal Pistol said...

Bookends? With you in the middle? Why you naughty little minx! I LOVE it! :)

Clark Gable as Rhett Butler was the perfect man. Ah me. Oh my!

Mary Aalgaard said...

Great photos and commentary, and a few blogs that I also love to follow.

Rekha said...

I really loved your version of muses. Somehow Malfoy Sr looks better with his robes on. :)

Nf1andprek-whisper said...

i am 42.. and although, I have loved listening to steven tyler.. I did not think he was sexy till I heard him and watched him work with the people on Idol.. especially a girl who was or had brain damage.. he really is much deeper than I imagined.... I think this Man post is brillant... since I have not done M.... maybe I will do MEN>>>>
