i like you, yeah i like you, and im feeling so bohemian like you

It's that time of the year again...when I recap exactly who makes my top ten Sexiest Men Alive list of the past six months. Let's review the criteria, because it seems to change every single time I do this.

They have to be alive and delightfully sexable™ (I trademarked that phrase bitches...if you don't remember, you need to catch up on your January 28th, 2007 post) now. No points for past glories. Same with the accompanying pictures: for example, some of my favourite Stones pictures are from days of yore...but Mick n Keith can still pull off senility and approaching (arrived?) dementia.
It's in alphabetical order to avoid hurt feelings.

-Alex Turner
Alex Turner, of Arctic Monkey fame in case you weren't aware, has been a mainstay on my Sexy Lists since the very first. (Feeling nostalgic? Unlike some of the other mainstays, my love for him has exploded in the past six months, since seeing him in person. And he's developping his own sense of (very sexy) style. Hurrah for maturity, and all that. Lyrically, a genius. What more could a girl ask for?

-Demetri Martin

Sometimes, it's not about the face/body/hair...sometimes its about the personality. The very, very hilarious personality. But sometimes it's about everything. And everything, Demetri has. Good looks, fantastic hair, a great name (De...meee...tri...Martin), and one of the best senses of humour around. This is Demetri's first time on the Ashcan Rantings Semi-Annual Sexy List (ARSASL).

-Jason Schwartzman

While researching (I shouldn't even call it that, it makes it sound un-fun) for this post, I found that Jason Schwartzman and former ARSASL-vet Robert Schwartzman (of Princess Diaries and Rooney fame) are actually brother. Huh, who knew? And Jason dated one of my favourite actresses, Zooey Deschanel. I have yet to see his latest movie, The Darjeeling Limited (edit: got the title wrong, thanks, anonymous!), but I'm sure Jason's sexiness carries the movie. Jason Schwartman is also a ARSASL mainstay.

-Johnny Depp
No words are needed.

-Keith Richards

Okay, okay, even when I, hardcore Keith Richards luster, saw this picture I said "Eww", but I quickly followed it up with "!" Almost everything about this picture on its own would be disgusting. Why is Keith Richards so freaking attractive? It's a mystery of our time.
Wait, no it isn't. It's because he's badass and rock'n'roll as fuck.

-Lenny Kravitz
For some weird reason, Lenny Kravitz is new to ARSASL. I don't know why. He is not only facially handome, but he has a unique, distinctive style and he absolutely oozes sex appeal.

-Matt Helders
Also new to the list. Matt isn't the type of guy you pass on the street and turn to your friends, sighing "Don't look now, but that guy we just passed was unbelievably sexable™". He's the kind who wins you over with his great personality. And once he's gotten you with that, he's an absolute Adonis.

-Mick Jagger

Oh, Mick. Mick, Mick, Mick. Why do I love your wrinkles so? Why do I yearn to run my hands through your dyed hair? Why do I want you so so badly? I can't look at him any longer...take it away! I can understand why people would think he's ugly as hell, but my heart leaps whenever I see his scraggly face.

Mmm....I've raved about Prince so many times on this blog, there really is no need to do it again.
-Van Hunt

The man who inspired me to whip up another one of these great lists. Another new face, but hopefully one to remember.

And now...a brief moment to remember those of Sexy Lists passed, who are longer with us. Don't lose hope, boys, there's always next year. And if you're on steady decline, well, you've still got the memories. The sweet, sweet memories.

Which of these men is sexiest?
Alex Turner
Demetri Martin
Jason Schwartzman
Johnny Depp
Keith Richards
Lenny Kravitz
Matt Helders
Mick Jagger
Van Hunt
None of the above...Molly has the most wack taste in guys EVER free polls

Ahhh Jason Schwartzman!! My lifeeeee. :] Although yesterday I was listening to Ryan Adams & remembered just how amazingly goodlooking he is, so he replaced Jason as the background picture on my computer. For now.

Keith Richards was so hot when he was younger. He's still kind of hot, if you see beyond is disgusting fingers.
