I'm going to try to make this your one-stop post for all things Brandon Beemer. Because the boy deserves it.
I can't believe it's been two years since I last featured Brandon. How could I neglect such sublime perfection for so long? So I'm making him this month's DeCoteau dude. He only had a bit part in The Brotherhood (the very first one), but it still counts. Wouldn't it be great if he appeared in one of David's newer efforts, in a larger role? He's got the dress code down. Are ya listing, Mr. De?
Let me connect you to more material so you may continue your appreciation of the finest, fittest soap guy in the business (according to a completely impartial poll) (so I was the only one polled; I can be impartial). An assortment of videos of Brandon shirtless can be found on Youtube and at Soaphunks.net. Where you can also find stills. However, better ones can be seen at Superherofan's corner and Squarehippies and Shirtless Stars Clips. Brandon has an official site, but it doesn't seem to be updated often, or have much content, so be warned. A ways back, there were rumors of who he was dating (pre Nadia), but I think they were just wishful thinking.
By the by, did anyone watch Dirty Soap? I caught most of it on E! Shout out to E!, where you can indulge the shallow. After watching, I learned some things about Brandon:
1) I honestly think he doesn't know how transcendently gorgeous he is
2) Nadia doesn't deserve him because
3) Nadia's mom, Fary, has no idea what a catch Brandon is
It's fortunate that he's so unaware of his supernal beauty. If he was, he'd probably be insufferable. Why Nadia doesn't stand up to her mom when she bad-mouths Brandon, I can't fathom. If Brandon were my boyfriend, first off I'd probably be holding off the competition with a pitchfork. Or possibly automatic weapons. 'Cause if he was mine, I'd be keeping him, you know it. I'd tell my mother where to go, that's for sure.
Except my mom would've been happy that I'd found someone, and probably bragging that I was dating a great looking famous soap star. Plus she might've been a bit of a dirty old lady to him. And I'd let her, because I'm that kind of son. Hey, a little bum squeeze never hurt anyone.
Fary doesn't like Brandon because he forgets Nadia's birthday or stuff like that? Seriously? Has she no idea what a gift that is? He forgets an important date or does something inconsiderate, you nurse his guilt, and then he has to make it up to you. The advantages of being raised Catholic. I've said it for ages: the Jews may have invented guilt, but the Catholics perfected it. An expert can wield it to more effect than any katana, doncha know.
I mentioned a few posts back about my friend who looked like Peter Berlin. Well, he also resembled another Peter. Yes, the irony. It was Peter Cox (the irony train keeps a-rollin'), the lead singer of the British blue-eyed soul group Go West, whose song We Close Our Eyes I'm using in this video. The grimy, the giant wrench, mmmm. I look at it now and see how silly it is. And yet, still, mmmm. For those unfamiliar with them, they did King of Wishful Thinking on the Pretty Woman soundtrack. Cox is now the lead singer for Manfred Mann's Earth Band, of all things. He's still looking pretty good at 56.
When he first started on Glee, I was so-so about Darren Criss, who turns 25 this week. But he grew on me quickly. He's cute and all, but guys who can sing well tend to be even more attractive to me, and Darren definitely has a set of pipes on him. My favorite thing he's done so far is his version of It's Not Unusual. I think I like his pre-Glee look to his post-Glee one. Though I'm really liking this geek sexy look. Boy's got a future, that's for sure. Worse comes to worse, he can always play with the StarKids.
