Blowing My Mind

I've always had kinda weird, random boy crushes. That is, I've always had crushes on guys where my friends would be like, "Huh, you like him? Why?"And I wouldn't know why. It was just a certain je ne sais quoi that would attract me.

Today I realized I have a crush on Criss Angel. You know, as in Criss Angel Mindfreak, the illusionist who has a show on A&E?

It's not like I'm really into magic or anything, but I stumbled upon a Mindfreak Marathon and became captivated. I watched almost every single episode. This guy does things that are absolutely incredible. I've never seen anything like it. He levitates, makes people disappear, displays amazing psychic abilities. The whole time I watch his show, I'm like, "What the bleep?!...Holy bleep!...How the bleep?!"

If you haven't seen it before, check out this clip where he walks through glass or this clip where he walks up a building.

Anyway, I'm befuddled by this crush. I mean, the guy is pretty weird to say the least. The lead in to his show is like watching a scene out of Twin Peaks. And then there's his black makeup and the cape he wears. I'm not really into the whole Marilyn Manson look. I usually like my men sans make-up.

And yet, there's something about him. Maybe it's his totally hot bod. Maybe it's his mysteriousness. Or maybe it's his obvious talent at all this illusiony stuff. Whatever it is, it is really disturbing to me that I have this crush on him. And I want it to go away immediately.

I mean, has mommyhood turned me into a total whack-o? Am I the only one who has crushes on random weirdos like this?

Despite the fact that this is totally unsettling to me, I do highly recommend catching his show so that you can see his amazing illusions for yourself...and so that you can check out his hot bod of course.

More on actual baby-related happenings next week...this IS a mommy blog after all.

He definitely has a hot bod.
I always have had crushes on the strangest people. In high school I was in love with Dennis Hopper. Now that's weird.

I think it's his self confidence along with the totally hot bod of course. Confidence is sexy.

I could have a fascination with him the same way I do with West Coast Chopper Jesse James.

ain't nothin' wrong with that, sister. I have some super-bizarro crushes, m'self. (I'm currently fixating on Andy Samberg, the goofy newbie on SNL. yum-o!)

carriebrett's right; what would a girl do w/out 'em?

p.s. Marcie, the crush on DH made sense. he was hottt. (until I heard he went over to the dark side politically. not so very hottt.)

Thank you guys for not making me feel weirder than I do already. :)

So, Dennis Hopper, Jesse James, Andy Samberg, Criss Angel and us. Now that would be an interesting group date!

Well, your "boyfriend" does have a hot body, no doubt about that. Hmmm, I can't think of any crushes I have at the moment. i am still reeling from the fact that Tom Cruise turned out to be a lunatic. i know, I know, he's gay, he's short, he's wierd. but, he's soooo damn cute. *sigh* I can't help it...

Um...Don't tell anyone but have always had a crush on Tom Brokaw.

I know, I need help.

He's fascinating in that creepy/hot/weird kinda way.

ANd I'm with lildb on Adam Samberg. Munch!

I'll admit to watching him as well. It drives me crazy trying to figure out the trick to all of the weird things he does. I can only guess he sold his soul to be able to do superhuman stuff. Oh, and his body is hot.

Blogger mama_tulip said...

LOL -- no, you're not the only one who has weird crushes on television stars. There's one officer on COPS who I've always secretly wooed...when he wrestles those perps to the ground I get all hot and bothered.

I've had some really great dreams about men I never knew. The mind is a wonderful thing; enjoy your fantasy crushes.

hehe I agree with Something Blue..Confidence is totally hot. I used to get weird crushes, now I watch so little tv I have no idea who is hot and who is not!

Blogger Jill said...

I've had an enduring crush on Jason Bateman, from his Hogan Family days all the way to Arrested Development. But maybe that's not so weird - although he certainly does not have Criss Angel's pecs.

And I totally get the Tom Brokaw thing.

Holy six pack! That body is definetly EYE CANDY!!!!

oh yea, and by the way, i can vouch for the dennis hopper crush marcie had! it was for real. and it lasted for a pretty long while.

I love illusions; may have to tune in sometime. As for crushes, I learned in early high school not to tell people who I had crushes on. Though it's "safer" now, away from the nastiness of fifteen-year-old girls, I still don't. It seems disloyal to my husband somehow.

Blogger mommy on the verge said...

I think you've lost it. He has completely put a magical spell on you through the tv to make you want him and think of him in a sexual way.
My advice to you is to never watch that show again and switch to the Tony Danza show.

crushes are normal...although I remain true to my current crush...Antonio Bandaras. Weve been together for about 3 years now....lol..

I have crushes on Alan Rickman, Philip Seymour-Hoffman and Jack Black. So yeah...I know exactly what you're talking about.

Blogger Kristen said...

LOL. I have some weird ones too- Clay Aiken, Elliott Yamin (from this years American Idol), and a copule more I can't think of now!

Blogger K. said...

Well... from the second pic I can totally see why you might have a crush on this guy. ;)

Blogger Andrea said...

I don't think you're weird. There's something about mysterious people who peak our interest. I'm all about the guy on CSI, the one who plays Grissom on the Vegas version. He's the character with the least known about him, so his mystery is intriguing to me. Plus, I dig smart.

12:20 PM  
Blogger Mommy off the Record said...

MOV: Tony Danza, eh? I actually used to have a crush on him too during the "Who's the Boss" days.

Catch: Antonio is hot. No doubt about it.

Jenny: Yeah, Capote, he's pretty cute.

Kristen: I randomly (almost) saw Clay Aiken about a year ago at a hotel I was staying at for business. He was doing a show and there were hoards of fans milling around waiting for him to arrive. I never did see him cuz I was too tired to stay up to wait for his appearance. I guess you'd say it wasn't meant to be...

K: yes, it's all about the second pic, isn't it? :)

Andrea: I don't watch CSI, danggit, so not sure who you're talking about, but smart and mysterious is always a good combo.

I had heard of Criss Angel before but I didn't know who/what it was. After reading your post I spent a good half an hour watching him as well as some other video clips. That was awhile ago. After that I decided to download the episodes so I am about to watch the first episode! Thanks for mentioning him, I have been looking for more stuff to watch. And you don't watch CSI?! jk. I just started watching it this year, its pretty good.

Mmm, he does seem to have a hot body. Reminds me of the lead singer of Red Hot Chili Peppers (whose name escapes me at the moment) who is similarly freaky yet hot.

And LOL at Mama Tulip's comment about the hottie on Cops. ;-)

Blogger MommyWithAttitude said...

Oh this is GREAT, thanks for the link! But, really, I didn't need another weirdo to have a crush on...

By the way, I don't generally care for make up either, but I'd totally take Marylin Manson in a pinch... don't tell anyone! ;)
