- The brutally entertaining Rio de Janeiro crime movie, City of God, made me feel like I was trapped in a cocaine-induced nightmare.
- I have joked repeatedly in that past that I will someday write a play titled Brazilian Soccer Team Locker Room because the auditions for that show would be the BEST AUDITIONS EVER.
- I keep trying to devise ways of getting my hot Brazilian house painter to take off his shirt.
Perhaps it's the latter two items that prompted a friend of mine (thanks, Rob F.! - perv!) to send me a link to the Made in Brazil blog, which recently announced - with a certain amount of conviction, I might add - The Hottest Brazilian of 2010. His name is Mateus Verdelho. And goddamn - look at that picture - I ain't gonna argue!
