“Knockin’ me out with those American thighs…”
Updated on October 22nd, 2009

    This post has 4 comments - click to read

I finally broke down and bought an iPhone. But truth be told, I’m more intrigued [creatively] by using it as a camera rather than a phone. I hate cell phones. When I was in Las Vegas recently for the Olympia, I took a walk with KO to an adult store to look for some wardrobe. I just snapped this shot as we stood waiting for the light. I also started to play with the video camera on the iPhone. Ah, convergence, sometimes it’s not so bad. Enjoy.

BTW I will be posting KO’s first Bodybuilding Rawgallery for members this Saturday.

Kathy Unger Where Are You?

I miss Kathy Unger. I met Kathy in the late 80’s. She was a local bodybuilder with amazing potential. Kathy won her Pro card in 1989, and her first Pro show was the Ms International, which was held at the Arnold Classic. Kathy took 8th place and Tonya Knight won the show [where is Tonya?]. Every so often Kathy and her husband Jerry came to Better Bodies to train. In 1991 I wanted to put together a Better Bodies commercial for local TV. This video is the result. This footage has never been seen. Kathy where are you?

Maddi Meets Manhattan

For those of you who don’t know Maddi, you will, trust me. This Midwestern librarian is a confluence of incongruity. Cerebral yet sexual. Sensitive yet dominant. Obese now jacked. Prey now predator. Shy yet exhibitionistic. Madonna yet whore. Watch for the launch of her honest and uncensored blog here at Shemuscle, the best part of her story has yet to be lived/written. But today, before we shoot, I promised Maddi we would walk around Manhattan. Stay Tuned.

“Kristia, mark my words…..”
Updated on October 2nd, 2009

Nine years ago I got a letter from from an aspiring fitness model by the name of Kristia Knowles. She was going to be visiting New York City with her mom, and asked if she could stop by my studio to introduce herself. When she walked in the door, her beauty was apparent, but when she took her jacket off, her future was obvious.

shemuscle

I remember telling her after seeing her physique, “Mark my words….” that she would be on the cover of Muscle & Fitness within the next twelve months, I think she was on two covers in the next twelve months, with countless others to follow. But the one thing that I will never forget about Kristia was her thoughtfulness. I had cast her in a large production shoot for Muscle & Fitness, a feature called “Tar Beach”. At the end of a long day of shooting on a hot new york building roof top, the other models had already scattered, but Kristia saw that my crew and I had to break down the set. She asked if she could help, and proceeded to clean up the set. No model has ever done that. That is Kristia Knowles.

Go Figure

Bodybuilding Rawfan favorite, Davina, stopped by yesterday for a post contest shoot at the Bodybuilding RawGym. She was a bit bummed that she didn’t do better at the Team Universe contest the night before. “It sucks to work your ass off and then just do quarter turns in heels” she lamented. You see, Davina has lots of hard earned muscle and is conflicted over having to adjust her physique for the sake of “figure”. If you ask me, I bet you will see Davina on stage as bodybuilder within 12 months. Big muscles, short hair, no heels, just the way she likes it.
