The 10 Hottest Babes of GAME OF THRONES

One of my favorite shows of all time comes back with a new season tonight: Game of Thrones! I really loved last season, so I am, of course excited to see what will happen tonight and beyond. The show is the definitive fantasy series of all time, I think. One of the many appealing aspects of it, is its' abundance of beautiful women. Upon making this list, I was reminded just how many there have been! So, of course it wasn't easy to make, but it sure was fun! So, get ready for tonight's episode by checking out the 10 hottest babes to ever appear on Game of Thrones!
WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD (so don't bitch!)

10. Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey)- Let's begin the list with who is arguably the cruelest and biggest bitch on my list, blonde baddie Cersei. While, her incestuous affections for her brother Jamie are pretty gross, and she is pretty easy to hate, it doesn't stop her from being gorgeous. She certainly a MILF and an evil one at that. Her character did get fully nude last season for her walk of shame but sadly we got a body double. That being said Lena Headey's body double had an awesome figure!
9. Gilly (Hannah Murray)- This Wildling babe is sweet and beautiful as portrayed by the lovely Hannah Murray. She also serves as a love interest for Sam who protects her and her child. It's actually one of the sweetest relationships on this show. Gilly is frequently in lots of layers, but Murray is such a gorgeous woman, that she would look good in a potato sack.
8. Myranda (Charlotte Hope)- From one of the sweetest characters to one of the meanest bitches, Myranda is the lover of Ramsay Bolton. He is an awful human being so it takes an terrible person to love him. Myranda more than takes up that mantle. But, she's played by the absolutely beautiful Charlotte Hope, so I find it hard to fully hate her.
7. Shaye (Sibell Kekilli)- Shaye was a hooker that Tyrion fell in love with. Their relationship was, at one point, my favorite on the show, as I genuinely loved both characters. Unfortunately, she turned on Tyrion and got her just deserts. Regardless, of how much I went from loving Shaye to outright hating her, and I really began to hate her. Still, there is no denying her extraordinary beauty, especially As played by French stunner Kekilli. Earlier in her career, Kekilli worked in porn flicks(!), so she is perfect for this website. Anyway, she simply drips sex and looks AMAZING nude. Also, that accent is fucking hot as hell!
6. Doreah (Roxanne McKee)- The hottest handmaiden of Daenerys, she is a former whore (yeah, this is a very popular form of work in the world of GoT!). Early on in the show, she gives Daenerys advice on how to pleasure her husband. She is extremely sexy and McKay is just a vision of beauty. I had forgotten just how beautiful she was, being she died in season two, but in revisiting the first season, I fell in love all over again with her!
5. Daenerys Taragaryn (Emilia Clarke)- My second favorite character in the entire series, Daenarys, the Mother of Dragons is a fucking badass. She is a good person, but you don't wanna get on her bad side. Clarke is breathtaking and the perfect person to be cast in this role. She has gotten nude quite a few times (thank God for that!), and she has those fucking dragons! The imagine of her riding off of on Drogon last season is one of the highlights of the entire season.
4. Melisandre (Carice van Houten)- Being a bad girl is really hot. Being redhead is hot. Being into witchy stuff can be hot. So we combine all these three factors and you get The Red Woman, AKA Melisandre, who is hot as fuck and beyond! Seriously, this witch is portrayed by such a gorgeous actress in van Houten. Her dark powers only add to the evil sexiness that she has. This follower of the god of light is every bit as hot as the god she worships. Bewitching, indeed!
3. Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner)- Sansa has been through some pretty bad shit. She's seen her dad's head get lopped off, she has been married to two awful human beings, and just overall, not had a pleasant time. I certainly hope things turn better for her this season. As played by beautiful redhead Sophie Turner it is easy to see how she has so many fall for her. Turner is older than the actual character of Sansa is in the books. And, thank freaking God for that. Cause otherwise, she wouldn't have made this list.
2. Ygritte (Rose Leslie)- Redhead (yeah, I love redheads!) Wildling, Ygritte was both tough and sexy. I genuinely loved her relationship with Jon Snow. She was the first to give us one of the most beloved lines of all time on this series: "You know nothing Jon Snow!" She also got frequently nude. Yay! Honestly, when she finally died I was pretty damn saddened, but her character will always rank as one of my favorites on the show. And, as played by Leslie she without a shadow of doubt, the silver medal winner of the series.
1. Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer)- This smart little vixen had to be our gold medal winner. Played by the impossibly beautiful Dormer, Margaery is a sexy and seductive lady. She is also a wonderfully complex and fascinating character. Those beautiful blue eyes! That body! That accent! That flawless face! It's just too much! Yes, this show is filled to the brim with goddesses, but from the moment she stepped onscreen, she won our hearts. And, apparently other hearts, too. Our number 10 may hate her, but we all love her!

Horror Crush: Agnes Bruckner

It's time for another Horror Crush, and this time I am going with someone a little more recent than I sometimes end up doing: yummy, blonde beauty Agnes Bruckner. What's cool is that this stunning actress has done even more horror movies than I had originally realized!
Agnes was born in Hollywood, Cali. on Aug. 16, 1985. Her father is Hungarian, while her mom is Russian. She began her career as a child doing modeling, beauty pageants, and commercials. While, she starred in a few thrillers like the lame The Glass House, she wouldn't get to star in her first true horror movie until 2005's Venom
Venom is an entertaining, though flawed slasher/ voodoo movie. In it, a creepy, redneck trucker gets possessed and bought back to life by evil spirits. Agnes is our final girl, and does a very good job as it. She is tough, pretty, and very likable making it easy to cheer her on. This is helped by her solid performance. Along with the killer himself, they make two of the movie's major highlights. In all, the movie may suffer from being kinda by the numbers, but the mixing for voodoo and stalk and slash does give it a bit of a different feel. There is some nice shots, but they are marred by annoying editing or shaky cam. Still, overall this one is worth a look and kinda underrated. And, of course, Bruckner is super delicious. Seriously, her curves are fucking dangerous to look at!
 
In 2006, Bruckner appeared in Lucky McKee's The Woods. This tale of an all-girl school surrounded by woods and hides some scary and dark secrets. Despite having a great cast, including Bruce Campbell, Patrica Clarkson, and the beautiful Rachel Nicols (perhaps she needs to be a horror crush mention one of these days?), and, of course, the film-making talent of McKee, this one is pretty weak. I am a huge fan of his movies, but this is his worst film and big disappointment for me. Still, Bruckner is great in her role. The short, red-hair gives her a cute, innocent, young look fitting for her role.
 
2007 saw her appearing in horror/ romance/ fantasy/ werewolf flick, Blood and Chocolate. Based on the young adult novel of the same name, this one was a box office bomb. And, it's easy to see why; as it's pretty fuckin bad. Incredibly cheesy and forced this a truly awful, PG-13 (of course!) turd. I will say this about it; it was made before the tween novel being turned into movies was a thing, and it's better than any Twilight movie and has more horror elements in it. It still sucks, though.
 
2008 had her appear in the straight-to-video prequel Vacany 2: The First Cut. She plays Jessica and along with her boyfriend and friend check into the hotel where the bad shit from the first movie will occur in three years. I have to be honest, I remember close to nothing about it. But, I do recall liking it. And, liking that Bruckner was in it. This is easily her best movie since, Venom.
In 2009, she appeared in Kill Theory. I never seen or even heard about this one. Any of you ever seen it?
 
She wouldn't return to horror until 2012, when she starred in The Pact. This is another one I never seen. But, at least I heard the name mentioned before. Any thoughts from you guys on this one?
I've never watched, but been curious about A&E supernatural series The Returned. It is worth mentioning that it does mark her return to the genre. It debuted in 2015, and in it, she plays Deputy Nikki Banks. I don't much more about her role, but she clearly looks good in a uniform!
 
I am a big fan of the beautiful Agnes Bruckner, and it is awesome that she has done so much horror work. Sure, the material wasn't always the best, but her acting was always solid. And, of course, she always looked beautiful. With her blonde hair, breathtaking, gorgeous green eyes, sexy curves, gorgeous face, and full lips, she is true horror goddess. I love that her looks scream sex, yet there is a girl-next-door appeal to her. All of this adds to a true horror crush and heartbreaker!

The 10 Hottest Girls/ Girl Couples on the AVN Red Carpet 2016

On Jan. 23, 2016 the annual AVN Award Show was held at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nev. This marked the first time that we got to attend the red carpet for the gala event. There were tons  and tons of beautiful, sexy, and stunning looking porn stars that walked it. But, the following list is the crème de la crème of them, the best of the best. This was not an easy list to do (are these ever?). But, regardless after a lot of thought and consideration I, Master Gio, present to you my top 10 picks for the hottest looking girls/ girl couples to walk the red carpet, in ascending order:

10. Jillian Janson- Starting out my list is the naturally beautiful Jillian Janson, who looked amazing and classy in her beautiful, black dress. Also, her butt looks incredible, just look below to see what I mean!
9. Alice Lighthouse- This is the first time we have mentioned Alice Lighthouse here, but I think it was long overdue. Alice looked absolutely beautiful with her hair up and the classy and gorgeous dress that she was wearing.
8. Dana Vespoli and Aiden Starr- I have long been fan of the exquisite and breathtaking Dana Vespoli, because of her beauty, brains, and her ability to direct some of the hottest porn movies, ever. She was accompanied on the red carpet by beautiful blonde Aiden Starr. Dana looked like the right mix of classy and sexy in her plunging jacket and skin tight pants. Speaking of tight, that red dress looked so fucking hot on Aiden!
 
7. Veruca James (accompanied by Damon James)- Always one of the most beautiful women in any place that she is at, Veruca is simply breathtaking. She looked absolutely beautiful in this dark blue dress, that showed some very sexy and provocative cleavage on the red carpet.
6. Asa Akira (accompanied by Tony Ribas)- A long time favorite of this site, and anyone who appreciates beautiful and sexy women, Asa looked fucking nuclear hot in a short, revealing, sexy, and tight white outfit. Her curves and legs looked fantastic in it!
5. Riley Reid (accompanied by Josh Mayer)- Holy fuck! The outfit that Riley wore was just blistering in its' hotness level. It left little to imagination, and that is quite fine by me. Mixing one of the sexiest outfits on the entire red carpet with one of the most naturally beautiful women in the adult world is a sure fire way to get on this list!
 

4. Bree Daniels and Kenna James- Speaking of naturally beautiful, two such beauties are sexy redhead Bree Daniels and blonde Kenna James. Bree looked so beautiful and sexy in the black, revealing outfit that she wore. And, I just love the way that she is wearing her hair, it's very enticing. Kenna's beautiful, long green dress exuded both class and sex appeal. Also, she has such a beautiful smile!
 
3. Carter Cruise- One of my personal favorite girls in the biz is Carter Cruise. She is just so freaking beautiful! And, she looked amazing on the red carpet. I loved the way that she had her blonde hair, as it really looked great on her. Her outfit adorned with pot leaves, an eye, writing, an inverted cross, and more was sexy, fun, and cool as hell. It fit her and her personality to perfection!
 
2. Dani Daniels (accompanied by Steven St. Croix)- Dani, one of the greatest performers ever in porn, and she looked like the perfect mix of natural, stunning beauty, classiness, and sexiness that night. Her jacket revealed her awesome cleavage and her tight pants showed off her amazing ass. Dani is just breathtaking to look at and seeing her be all sex and business is just delight for the eyes.
1. Romi Rain- My top pick at the red carpet is Romi Rain. This gorgeous and busty Italian beauty just stopped hearts with her amazing look on this night. First off, her hair which she wore up really accented her beautiful face. The tight fitting outfit looked amazing on her boobs which looked eye-popping and incredible. In fact, her curves looked like pure perfection. I loved the back of the dress, as it allowed a look at her beautiful back tattoo. Romi truly captured the perfect mix of voluptuous, sexiness, class, and gorgeous beauty, and is thus my top pick at the AVN Red Carpet 2016.

The Black Dahlia Murder at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn, NY 4/16/16

Last night, on April 16, 2016, I attended, as press, The Black Dahlia Murder (TBDM) show at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn, NY. TBDM have long been one of my personal favorite death metal bands. In fact, their latest release, Abysmal, was my pick for album of the year last year. As such, I am very happy to report that whole night was a night of brutal, savage, and kick ass death metal!

Opening up the night was the savage music of Disentomb. Hailing from Australia this is brutal death metal at it's most fucking brutal. The music they played was just pummeling. I had never heard them before, but holy fuck are they ever awesome! This is exactly my cup of blood, and they fucking killed it, in my book. The drumming, and just everything else about them, is ferocious and make for one of the best opening acts I have ever seen at a show. In all, they truly fucking destroyed!
 
 

The next band up was progressive death metal act Fallujah. Hailing from San Fransisco, California, these guys have a complex and highly technical sound. There are lots of tempo changes and amazing musicianship on display. The music, itself, is always remains heavy as fuck, even as it mixes jazzy parts, deathcore breakdowns, and technically proficient death metal. It makes for a significantly original sound that sets them apart from so many other acts in the subgenre. 
 
 
 
It was soon time for the headlines, The Black Dahlia Murder to come and tear shit up. By the time, they did the sold-out crowd was all in attendance, and it was packed to the rafters. And, from the moment they came onstage to the last song they played, it was utter fucking mayhem unleased on earth.
They, of course, played lots of songs from their aforementioned and utterly awesome latest release Absymal. Among the killers tracks that they played from that album were "Receipt", "Vlad, Son of the Dragon", "Threat Level No. 3". They also played classics from their other releases including such favorites like "Nocturnal", "Moonlight Equilibrium" (which had signer Trevor Strnad ask the fans to bark like dogs before they played it!), and "I Will Return".
I cannot stress enough just how awesome a live band TBDM is. Not only do they sound every bit as good as they do on their albums, but they are just such a fun band to experience. They really know how to get the pit going. It was fucking brutal in there! I saw at least one dude who had blood running down his face. When he noticed, he just smiled! That's fucking badass, man! There was also some stage-diving and crowd-surfing. The fact is that pretty much the whole audience would jump and move around adding to an awesome and epic concert!
 One of many fans who got onstage to dive and have fun!
 The ultra-brutal pit!
 Trevor is such an awesome frontman! I would say that he is one of the coolest in death metal.
 
This is Victor. Apparently he is a huge fan of TBDM. The band knows him, and Trevor asked the fans to have him crowd-surf for whole duration of one song.
 It wouldn't be a TBDM if Trevor didn't get shirtless!
 Not gonna lie, meeting Trevor was a huge highlight for me!
