Yes faithful readers, it’s true.
I have traversed the uncanny valley from journalist/comedian/me to reach the dizzying plateau that is male modelling.
Stepping out from behind the camera, behind the bushes, behind the fence, was a path I hadn’t considered taking, but as you will soon find out (by reading this) it was a worthwhile use of my all too precious time.
Concerns have been raised (somewhere surely) that I’ve “sold out”, that I’m not the avid book reader portrayed in the now notorious pic, and that I’ll now forget the little people that have made up my audience to date.
I will address these points in alphabetical order.
- I am an avid reader of all things book.
If like many you too demand further proof then fine (and I respect your initial skepticism, but the tone could use some work).
Exhibit B: The following pictures, stretching back several years, show beyond all reasonable doubt that I have read publications other than those pictured above, even while partially submerged.
2. I have not forgotten the little people that make up my audience. I am however terrible with names so I can see how you may have reached this conclusion and I forgive you.
Both of you.
3. I’ve yet to be offered the soul crushing option of selling out, however all offers WILL be scrutinized on their merits.
As my possible biological fathers Zz Top put it, “you know I gotsta get paid”.
Sadly my addiction to reading don’t pay for itself. Y’all.
