Double Tuesday - The Collaborators - January 31, 2017

Robert Iger, CEO of The Walt Disney Company (Left) and Travis Kalanick, CEO of Uber (right).

As we've been witnessing over the past few days the destruction of fundamental human rights and over 200 years of governance by constitutional law we want to make it very clear that those who participate in the Trump administration, including those in an advisory capacity, are Collaborators. They are traitors to our nation.

We begin this week dedicating our Tuesday posts to targeting and naming 2 collaborators each week. We encourage you to publicly target and name these collaborators, too.

These two men above serve on Donald Trump's Business Council, an advisory group of CEOs. They don't have to do this. They don't get paid to do this. Yet because they do participate they are collaborators and traitors.

Name them. Target them. And treat them for what they are.

UPDATE: On afternoon of February 2, 2017 Travis Kalanick resigned from Trump's Business Council

Warm and Cuddly

It's been a disconcerting weekend. Along with many of you it's meant getting out into the streets to show resistance to the administration's unlawful actions. 

If you hear of anyone held up or denied entry at Logan International Airport due to country of origin, religion, refugee or immigration status please contact the ACLU(M) - American Civil Liberties Union of Massachusetts at (617) 482-3170 extension 330.

What we could use after such a weekend, if only for just a moment is someone warm and cuddly. Like this dapper gentleman above!

We also have a special shout-out for...
Old South Church in Boston!

Despite a suddenly announced demonstration held at their doorstep on Sunday they nonetheless were prepared with a sign demonstrating not only their love for others but also their determination to take action. This is the mark of a community of faith engaged in making the world a better place. You won't see many churches here in Boston as prepared as Old South Church, but those that are will likely have a sign like this. Just a hint in case you're looking for a community of faith!

Immaculately and fashionably casual, our hottie peruses the latest breaking news about legal residents and legal refugees being detained and deported from our nation due to the President closing borders to Muslims.

Meanwhile our HOTT Crew has been very busy as we know people directly affected by this new order. And so we're off to the airport this afternoon to join the protests! Come join us in the resistance!

Contemplative Hottie

Morning commutes are an excellent time to put oneself in a meditative state, and our hottie seems really into a contemplative mood. We took his lead and meditated on his expertly groomed hair and beard, and the nicely patterned winter coat that he was wearing. Nice job!

Double Tuesday - Wet and Wild

It's a wet and wild day outside. Drenched jackets and inside-out umbrellas abound. But on the T we found these 2 gents perfectly attired for this rain soaked day. Hottie on the left has his L. L. Bean Boots to protect him from the deep puddles and streams while hottie on the right has a rain-resistant park with fur-trimmed hood to keep those nasty gusts away.

Good job, hotties on looking good even in nasty weather!

...Or member of the Resistance?

Our hottie seems to be contemplating whether or not the age of signing up to online resolutions and petitions actually has run its course.

Our HOTT Crew was inspired yesterday and very proud of our many friends who participated in the Women's Marches. Boston. Orlando. Atlanta. Washington, D.C.! And yes, even Paris! Some participated in the Women's March in their own city, others traveled over 1,000 miles to participate in Washington, D.C. There were more women marching in Washington, D.C. on January 21 than there were people viewing the inauguration on January 20!

In deciding we want to be effective in protecting fundamental human rights our HOTT Crew is joining the resistance. Being resolutionists is beneath us. We shall always set the bar high for ourselves.

Will you be joining the resistance with us?

Pink - It's the New Color of Justice

Fresh from the Women's March we found this smoking hot hottie strutting his stuff in solidarity with women of the world by while wearing the every so appropriate salmon colored shorts set off by a stunning gray sweatshirt with horizontal pinstripes. 

Weren't we all lucky it was a stunningly warm day (must be that east wind that blew in yesterday). FT and GB were exhausted just daydreaming about this fellow.

And what a fun day we had marching in Boston in solidarity with women, and in numbers larger than attended yesterday's Inauguration!

There's an East Wind Coming

Watson: It's a lovely morning, Holmes.
Holmes: There's an east wind coming, Watson.
Watson: I don't think so. Looks like another warm day.
Holmes: Good old Watson! The one fixed point in a changing age. There's an east wind coming all the same. Such a wind as never blew on America yet. It will be cold and bitter, Watson, and a good many of us may wither before its blast. But it's God's own wind, nonetheless. And a greener, stronger, better land will lie in the sunshine when the storm is cleared.

Artifacts from films frequently make their way into our blog. And artifacts that last through the ages are the foundation of films deemed to be classics.

So on this day, at this very hour we share this classic film artifact from Sherlock Holmes and the Voice of Terror to all of our peoples, both here and in our Dominions Beyond the Seas. 

There's an east wind coming.

We were fascinated with our hottie's toolbox and how handsome it was with his pastel green T-shirt and olive winter jacket. He's a man with a job to do, and the tools with which to do it!

Our HOTT Crew has been riveted with Series 4 of Masterpiece's Sherlock. It was absolutely chilling, especially as we learned about Redbeard. And the thrills continue on the T with this true Redbeard gent. The excitement simply never stops!

Although our HOTT Crew takes all of our own pics of men on the T we do on rare occasions (such as this) accept submissions. We think we'll call our reader who submitted this pic Dr. Watson in honor of his Redbeard Sherlock-themed hottie!

Double Tuesday - Raining Men

Two handsome men. Rain on the way. How appropriate that it's raining men on the T! Alleluia! Handsome hottie on the right strikes our fancy with his extraordinary facial profile. Just look at the classic nose and full lips. And handsome hottie on the right let's us know it's Spring by wearing a black North Face vest that lets the sleeves of his dress shirt show, and he, too, has a classic facial profile.

We love rain. We love men. We love it when it's raining men!

The Airport Line

Our HOTT Crew has returned from our South Sea Island adventure and we came across these adorable hotties at baggage claim as we arrived this evening. A techie guy on the left and a stylish musician on the right. Perhaps they're off to the Silver Line for the ride home. What a treat after returning from palm trees and pastel skies!

It Was a Dark and Stormy

As our HOTT Crew is basking in the warmth and sun of the South Sea Islands we're nonetheless having to adjust our return flights due to Winter Weather Warnings in the DC area (where we were to change planes). But if we were to be stranded with this lovely gentleman we don't think we'd mind!

Warm Soul

Our hottie has a warm soul... that or a burst of unseasonably warm weather descended upon us. We guess it was the latter as it was 62F yesterday, prompting a plethora of men to don summer shorts! How fortuitous for our HOTT Crew!

Meanwhile our HOTT Crew is off this morning on a trip to the South Seas Islands. Above is a lovely sunrise above Manhattan. Notice how the shadows of the skyscrapers stretch across the Hudson River! Simply magnificent!

Speaking of magnificent look at this hottie sitting across from us right this very moment at Charlotte International Airport! Woof!

The Spirit of '76

We love catching men while they're reading books, and this masculine beau is reading David McCullough's 1776. How fitting that our man is traveling directly beneath the locales where all the action in the book is taking place! We can imagine kicking back in a comfortable chair and reading along with him!

Double Tuesday - The Crush

Speaking of a crush of commuters on our train home last night, we had an instant crush on this delectable duo inside car! Hottie on the left wears an alluring combination of skinny jouged jeans and LL Bean Hunting Boots. Perfect for beating the snow! And our lad on the right has a brilliant red jacket so he can be easily spotted in the snow drifts as well as cuffed jeans for that trendy metropolitan look!

Silver Bells

There were bells on the hill
But I never heard them ringing,
No I never heard them at all
Till there was... you!

A stunningly handsome silver fox of a man graced our commute to work this morning. The fur-lined hood of his earth-toned parka compliments his hair and complexion so well. Even the perfect press of his shirt collar was tantalizingly alluring. Nice way to start a Monday!

Our cute New Year's Fellow seems to be keeping in touch with someone special on New Year's eve. And doing so delightfully clad in a white North Face jacket accented with wide black piping.

Speaking of looking for someone, have you noticed Boston's NBC station moved? Our HOTT Headquarters in Harvard Square now picks up NBC over the air via antenna (and crystal clear!) on 8.1. If you're connected to cable you'll likely find NBC now on channel 10.
