Just Now at Cal Anderson Park

posted by on June 28 at 17:40 PM

This is Joey. He learned to slackline three years ago after watching a guy do it in the woods. More on slacklining here. Photos are by Kelly O.







(Hey, Circus Contraption—you gotta put Joey in your next show.)

Taking pictures of this fool only encourages this sort of behavior.

Put a shirt on for fuck's sake.

I approve of this post. Fit shirtless guys = awesome.

I guess you didn't go to a small liberal arts school in Oregon or Washington. Slacklines are a plague on those campuses.

Posted by Sir Learnsalot | June 28, 2008 6:12 PM

The UW quad always has a line going on nice days.

Even hotter when they're barefoot. Love watching those grubby monkey toes curl around the webbing.

Yeah, I've got a fet.

Man—I hope he's making a video for HUMP.

dan, your thing for shaggy head boys is very cute-makes me smile everytime you get a new version to drool over...

Posted by lurker | June 28, 2008 6:42 PM

@1 agreed. At some point being a douche became something every college student and trustafarian strove to be.

Say "YES" to War on Iraq by Dan Savage Oct. 2002

"War may be bad for children and other living things, but there are times when peace is worse for children and other living things, and this is one of those times."

"The War on Iraq will make it clear to our friends and enemies in the Middle East (and elsewhere) that we mean business: Free your people, reform your societies, liberalize, and democratize... or we're going to come over there, remove you from power, free your people, and reform your societies for ourselves."

Posted by douglas | June 28, 2008 10:57 PM

Posted by stinkbug | June 28, 2008 11:04 PM

Humina humina! Or is it homina homina? Either way, he's a cutie.

I'm sure glad nobody remembered to have multiple images that span many pages on the Web go into a spill so that we see only the first image and can choose if we want to see the rest ....

That boy has a serious case of needing a rimjob from me.

Posted by alan | June 29, 2008 5:33 AM

Beautiful fella. By not using carpet pads under his webbing on that girth cinch he is seriously hurting the vascular cambium on that lovely tree, though. If too many slackliners use that same spot once he's worn a groove in it, the tree will be dead in a year or so.

Posted by tomasyalba | June 29, 2008 7:56 AM

@18: Like some hippie kid with a fucking slackline cares about that shit. He's got a cute girl taking multiple pictures of him, he doesn't have time to worry about killing the tree!

I'd totally suck his dick.

Posted by CripKev | June 29, 2008 9:23 AM

Posted by die hippies | June 29, 2008 9:59 AM

How about a salute to hacky sacks next? Christ.

Posted by Jason Josephes | June 29, 2008 10:28 AM

Nice! Thanks for the eye candy!!

Posted by merry | June 29, 2008 11:27 AM

you know who's cute? the spanish euro cup team, aheading by one point in the final today. espana adelante!

Posted by scary tyler moore | June 29, 2008 12:42 PM

Funniest thread in a while. I particularly like Will in Seattle's passive-aggressivism. It's not like these were pictures of somebody giving somebody else anal tongue darts, Will.

Posted by Big Sven | June 29, 2008 1:03 PM

Spain wins! caramba! unfortunately, none of the players took off their shirts. when i am queen of the world, it will be MANDATORY to remove your shirts after each and every goal scored in european football matches. for realz.

Posted by scary tyler moore | June 29, 2008 1:58 PM

@27 -- back off Iker, bitch. That one belongs to ME.

But yeah -- shirts off.

Posted by Jubilation T. Cornball | June 29, 2008 2:56 PM

so NOT hot. pale dirty annoying douche.

Posted by d | June 29, 2008 3:17 PM

This is equally retarded as having a giant hackysack thread because the author thought said hackysacker was cute. Thanks for killing slog a little bit at a time Kelly O.

Posted by Andy | June 29, 2008 3:41 PM

You go, Joey. All that dochebaggery, and you got...Kelly O. And some gay guys.

Have fun with that. *shudder*

Posted by Gomer Bolstrood | June 29, 2008 4:17 PM

Slacklining? Slackjawed.

Posted by Catman | June 29, 2008 5:16 PM

However, I did see this handsome young man attend Pride today. He's even hotter in person.

Posted by Catman | June 29, 2008 5:17 PM

Hey, you got the wet hotties with the nice ta-tas just one post below Joey...

S'bout time the Stranger throws us straight women a bone..... lulz....

Posted by merry | June 29, 2008 8:04 PM

keep it in your pants, kelly.

Posted by j beezer | June 29, 2008 10:01 PM

He's cute! Slacklining seems kind of lame, but if it makes him take his shirt off, then I guess I'm for it.

Posted by miss_m | June 30, 2008 7:36 AM

He's cute! Slacklining sounds lame, but if it makes him take his shirt off, then I guess I'm for it.

Posted by miss_m | June 30, 2008 7:40 AM

Sorry. I don't know what's up with my browser. I'm the lame one now...

Posted by miss_m | June 30, 2008 7:47 AM

Come. fuck. me. NOW.

Do these people bungee-jump off a 3-foot drop too?

Posted by Becky | June 30, 2008 10:01 AM

hey everyone this is the slackline guy. if anyone wants to come slacklining with me down at golden garden, i have a group of friends that come and we get crazy on the slackline! here's my myspace if you want to become friends :)

Posted by Joey | June 30, 2008 11:40 AM

Cool pictures! Slacklining takes a lot of athletic skill....balance, core strength...very impressive, Joey!

Posted by slacklinin' sista | June 30, 2008 3:26 PM

way to joe, old school'n it

Posted by Zack | June 30, 2008 6:09 PM

some of you fucks are just judging him and you don't even know him. If you don't even know him why are you talkin shit? I've known Joey for 12 years and hes not a Douche bag at all. Hes cool so leave him alone. He'd kick ur ass too haha.

Posted by Matt | June 30, 2008 11:01 PM

Krikey! Good on ya mate for snappin those closeups of Joey the Ostrich. My wife Candy and I spent most of Sunday tracking this majestic beast across the gay outback after spying him performing the three-nights-with-no-sleep poultry polka around noontime at the Funhouse. Candy was creating a distraction as I crept around behind to steal his eggs, when a burst from the pride fountain startled this fella and he bolted for the hill.
