We have more talent on show later. But while we’re on the subject of men dressed as women, take a look at this guy modelling for TMall in China. He’s pushed sales up 500%.

He KNOWS he looks good. So does this cool cat.

If you want to look good, you have to work out. Just remember NOT to do it like the good folk Ginger Calem featured this week on her blog.

You’ll have to be very fit indeed to get away from this lady; take anything off her doorstep and she’ll come after you with bear spray and a samurai sword and tweet about it at the same time. Very funny.

She could be the next in line in this brilliant animated gif.

While we’re on the subject of heroes, here’s the first ever hero from historical fiction – and the man who wrote about him – from Past Times Books.

But now back to the show. Here’s two guys who definitely DO NOT have the X factor.

I don’t think they were asked back for a second call.

Anastasia, Colin Falconer


Meanwhile I’ve just finished a brand new presentation for my book: ANASTASIA on a new medium called Slideshare.

  1. Oh my heavens, that’s hilarious! And the guy DOES have “it.” Not sure what “it” is but he/she has it!

    I’ve always loved the Russians; they’re brave stand at Leningrad, Stalingrad and all the other grads. I also love the way they will do pretty much anything to get a laugh (I think.) X factor indeed!

    Hi! Just stopping by as Susie sent me over from her blog party.

    That guy has a good voice but it’s oddly funny and weird at the same time to watch!

    Following your blog! 🙂

    Happy New Year!


    • Susie has the best parties! Yeah, the X factor guy is sensational … if you close your eyes, he’s brilliant, when you open them again he’s … deeply disturbing. I’m told he didn’t even win.

    I love that video! Hahaha! What a riot. Now that IS the X Factor!
    Thanks for coming to the party! There are a lot of new bloggers to check out this time. I LOVE it! It is a clicking Rager!

  5. Stopping by from Susie’s party…Really scratching my head, unsure whether or not I found the performance to be interesting or strange…or maybe a bit of both. Regardless, it was entertaining…
