I referred earlier to my extensive chain of Beach Bum tanning salons which I opened after struggling to maintain my beach bronzed look on those long promotional tours that pop up from time to time like a spontaneous erection. My good mate Will Ferrell has taken on board some of my tanning tips and asked me to mention - though I guess you've heard it all before - his new range of super hot sunscreen products that will appeal to all gentlemen of taste and discernment.
By the way (and here's a real scoop TMZ) you should know that Will - and in his modest way he doesn't like to shout about this - is the love child of Jim Morrison and a Parisian danseuse. You read it first here.

It's all eye candy but here's a few choice (free) surf related images with which to paper your wall. It took me ages to print them all out and stick them up. Now I can't see where the door is and I'm trapped in my room. Nice view though.

I was trawling through some vintage surf imagery for one of my occasional examples of how surfdom - for want of a better phrase - has been used to sell everything from vitamins to pulp fiction or, as in this example, a brand of suntan lotion.
This ad harks back to the day when the emphasis was on accelerating the speed at which you "bronzed" (read "burnt") and many of the products were oil based concoctions that acted in much the same way as a good brush of olive oil helps baste a turkey. Check out the model in question ... ring any bells? Sent a slight chill down my spine. RIP Sharon.

...for - in the words of that old hymn - yielding is sin. My fancy was rather tickled by this image from an advertising campaign deemed by the drinks manufacturer in question to be a tad tasteless - a bit like their fizzy, gut-rot, thirst inducing, copper cleaning, cocao cola.
