Why Is Stephen Colbert So Sexy?

The general idea is that humor is a proxy for intelligence, the latter being a sexually selected trait. Humans ascend the social hierarchy in part because of the size of their brains rather than due to their brawn (albeit in some settings such as in male prisons, brawn is a valuable trait to possess hence the obsessive focus on building muscles within the prison yards). Whereas both men and women desire intelligent mates, there appears to be a greater importance placed on intelligence when it comes to female mate choice. Not surprisingly then, men engage in lekking behavior (sexual signaling within a specified physical space) by putting on a full display of their comedic talents.

Hence, to the extent that Steven Colbert is an attractive man, much of his desirability stems from his large brain as displayed via his quick wit and comedic charm. Of course, being tall, handsome, and rich do not hurt his mating value albeit I believe that he is married. Sorry ladies! '"

IDK, in my twisted head, brains/talent = confidence = sex appeal. A smart, funny and confident man MUST be good at everything else. Oh, Colbert, SEXAYYY.

I was gonna make a music video for the beautiful BBC series Little Dorrit, which I finished watching yesterday...

Well, I'm not going to anymore.

Matthew, Claire, Simon and Garfunkel, one of my favorite songs. It can't be topped.

In these times of P&P obsession, with extensive thinking over TV and cinema's adaptations of the amazing Jane Austen book, as well as extensive lust over CF and MM's Darcys, I just overheard on (brazilian) TV a promo of the new adaptation of probably my favorite book, Dom Casmurro, by the greatest brazilian writer of all time, Machado de Assis. If you're not brazilian, you probably never heard of this book, which is such a waste, considering it is a literary masterpiece. I've read it for the first time when I was 12, and twice more since. Bentinho was my first literary love. I've always dreamt of a worthy motion picture version of this flawless classic story, nothing like this bomb. Can you imagine my freakin' out sentiment while hearing it'll be a opera-rock 5-episode version, with cinema filming quality, theathre-esque narrative, just starting next tuesday? I mean, where was I? The cast is mainly of unknown actors, the story will remain a period one, faithful to the book, but the soundtrack will be of modern music. Striked me as Moulin Rouge, which btw is one of my favorite films.

Guess it'll be a love it or hate it deal, huh? I'm willing to love it.

My point with this post: Read this book. This good but not too revealing review might give yoy a hint about the story.
