Here's a familiar looking face although I couldn't remember where
I'd seen him before. Then I suddenly remembered that I had posted
his pictures up HERE late last year.
And this mixed Asian beauty is in fact Marius Begaud. And some
startling new images by photographer Antoine La Rochelle have
just been posted up at Male Model Scene.
Marius models at Folio Montreal Models and he's also a student at
Below is just one of several images of Marius by Robert Ferron
and they're probably Marius's best ever images.

Just a couple of weeks ago we finally made it to London's first ever Cat Café LADY DINAH'S CAT EMPORIUM in Bethnal Green Road. The whole concept of a Café with cats here in London has really taken off and proved to be very popular, just like it has proved so popular in countries like Japan. In fact it's popularity here and the demand by so many people wanting to visit it caused it's online booking system to crash earlier this year and even I had to wait several months this Summer to take up my booking.
And once we got in there the time did seem to fly, although as we came in and settled down it was clear that most of the cats were just coming out of their afternoon naps as a whole group of visitors were all let in at the same time. So we started off upstairs with some tea and scones. Although I opted for some Earl Grey I had to laugh when the Café assistant asked my partner when going through the choices of tea's if he would like English Breakfast to which he replied 'What, at 4.30 in the afternoon.' He thought he was being offered a slap up fried English breakfast. He didn't know that English Breakfast is a brand of tea.
It wasn't until after about 15 minutes that some of the cats started to come to life. In fact just on the table right next to us was a basket with one of the two black cats. They're twins named Loki and Adamska, and we hadn't realized he was there all the time. Of course the cats have all grown quite a bit since they opened the Café in March this year so the family picture below is a bit out of date but still a nice picture anyway. Apparently Mue is the Mother of seven of the cats.
The staff there were very friendly and chatty and told us the names of the cats as they passed. One of the cats even climbed onto the back of one of the assistants (photo below) as she proceeded in a hunched back manner and somehow navigated her way down the staircase and into the lounge area.
I had heard that the ginger and white cat named Romeo was very popular, apparently he likes to sit on warm open laptops, well he put on quite a show downstairs as we watched him jump up and down while one of the customers teased him with a feather stick.
I think during our two hours there that one or two of the eleven cats must have slept the whole time during our visit. One of them seemed very attached to a cat hammock just above the staircase and was determined not to give it up.
Things did also liven up a bit when one of the cats, possibly Petra, was fascinated by my friends bag and started playing with it as well as trying to find out what was inside.
But all in all it was a pleasant new experience although my friend who is more of a lover of cats, being that I like dogs so much, well he came away slightly disappointed that none of the cats sat on his lap. It seems that every day at the Cat Café can be different. It's all down to the moods of the cats and how much they feel like interacting with the public.
Below are just a few pictures I took while we were there. For more information visit their website...
LADY DINAH'S CAT EMPORIUM
Here's a clever little short film that was made in 2011 by Dutch boy Casper Buijtendijk and titled 'Fluorescent Adolescent.' The film clearly tries to point out the danger of over consumption of high caffeine energy drinks.
Casper is quite involved in making films and has been the recipient of several short film awards at various film festivals. Now 18, he's currently studying Film at The Amsterdam Film Academy. There's obviously an American influence in Casper's films as he tends to abandon his Dutch accent when performing in front of camera.
The film's title Fluorescent Adolescent comes from an Artic Monkey's song.
Below is Casper's Youtube Channel where more of his short films can be seen.

Lee Minhyuk must be one of the hottest looking guys in the world of K-Pop. The 23 year old singer, actor and dancer is part of pop outfit BTOB, or as it's known 'Born To Beat.' Apparently the group formed in 2012.
I've seen many images of him over the last couple of years but this one picture above must be one his most outstanding one's. And it was part of an editorial for Men's Health Korea back in February of this year. He featured on the cover shirtless which seems to be a requirement at Men's Health. But for me this top image above would have made an even better eye catching cover.
At the bottom of this post is a video of Minhyuk appearing on one of those many tv shows alongside Miss Min from the Korean all girl group Miss A. I'm not normally a fan of Asian dyed hair but I think Minhyuk is so stunning looking that even with red hair he looks just as beautiful.
In the video there's four people in that room, but it's Minhyuk that simply shines especially in that skimpy low cut vest.
More on that photo shoot at Men's Health can be see at SOOMPI.

Above and below are just two cute Korean models that are
currently taking part in Koreas Next Top Model tv show
on KNTN Channel.
The above cutie goes by the name of Ahn Seungjun who has
already featured in several fashion editorials. And below is
Ha Dongjoo. The tv show features both guys and girls and
sitting on the judging panel is none other than Tyra Banks
who seems to be spreading her wings taking the show to Korea.
It is amazing how so many tv reality and public
participation shows like The Next Top Model and The
X Factor are no longer exclusive to one or two countries
anymore . It's clear that they've been sold right around
I did manage to watch some of Episode 1 of this Korean
model show which you can watch HERE. And any male
model devoid of a set of abs will find themselves coming
under the scrutiny of Tyra Banks.
For more on this as well as more images of some of those
cute male model hopefuls take a look at Korean Male
Models tumblr HERE.
This is where the Water Feature sits near the corner
of the room but close to the window.

|These briefs above are described as 'for wearing|
the penis down.'
And this style of briefs is 'for wearing the
penis upwards.' It also has an opening at
the top to allow you to relieve yourself
if you ever get caught short. But more
interestingly it's one of several styles
that they recommend you wear if you
are prone to irregular erections.
I know.... this all gave me the giggles when
I first read it.

I couldn't resist throwing this one in. It is of
course our favourite model from Taiwan, Chris,
as photographed on Photoblue.
