Tank Top Tuesday


The great thing about tank tops, besides their minimal fabric and maximum hotness, is the way they cling. A tank top knows how to fit the body. It knows where to hug and where to give. It’s a giver like that. So on someone like, say, Hope Solo, a tank top knows to get the hell out of the way, and just let that back do all the talking. Which, not entirely coincidentally, is precisely what I’m going to do as well.
Claudia BlackI probably should have watched “Farscape,” huh?

Nikki ReedI remember Nikki before she was in all this “Twilight” hoo-ha and just wanted to kiss Evan Rachel Wood.

Rosario DawsonRosario is one of the most consistent tank top wearers in the industry. Bless her generous heart.

Elisha CuthbertWho knew she was the kind of girl who liked to get drunk and to eat ribs?

Rhona MitraShe needs to be in more movies where she kicks things’ asses.

Brandi CarlileShe’s in my neck of the woods this week and I was too late to get tickets. No, I’m not crying.

Jenna UshkowitzI’m so glad the “Glee” writers remembered Jenna was on the show last episode.

Naya Rivera
Speaking of things on “Glee” I’m glad for.

I think Tank Top Tuesday is one of my favourite things ever. I'm always a little sad now when a Tuesday has no tank tops.
Also watch Farscape. You won't be sorry.

I love a girl with tank top especially if she wear nothing after it...
Tank top could be the default outfit for tropical place

“I probably should have watched “Farscape,” huh?”

Yes, and I had the same thought darling.

"Who is this "Rhona Mitra" person and why have I not heard of her? She is all kinds of sexyhotyummypants!"

YES! Who the hell is this lovely creature Rhona Mitra?!

Farscape in my netflix queue - check.

That's erotic writing if I do say so myself. :)

This is certainly a fine group of tank top wearers, Ms. Dorothy. Brandi Carlile is a fine talent indeed, Southern Belle that she is, but just on sheer sultry appeal, it appears PD and I will once again have to fight over the same woman - Rhona Mitra. :) Ah, but Kate Beckinsale could take me away and make one forget all about Rhona, I suppose.

Damn this brown-eyed girl fixation!

Now. On to workout place so's I can look more like Hope Solo from behind. ahem

I have a black belt in Taekwondo! More to the point I captained the school hockey team! (Have you seen (the original!) ‘St Trinians’?)

And your qualifications are darling? ;)

The North strikes back!

First, from Canada, Sarah McKenna the 2009 “Adult Nova Scotia Highland Dancing Champion” brings us ‘Tank Top Tuesday’ – the Highland Dancing edition!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NncHAe0ymWs ( And some sounds to accompany the lovely Sarah: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gyhyBKbu9Jc )

Good God, have you ever seen such gloriously lofty leaps?! Or such glorious legs?! *Cough ahem* Crashing on! I must say I do also appreciate the Lion Rampant emblazoned on her shorts. Darling, we could sorely do with a bit of your fervent patriotism back in the ‘old country’!

In case any of you are as yet unfamiliar with Highland Dancing, this video should about cover the basics:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5dVP8AKw4So

Phew! That’s quite enough of all that! The dancing’s all very well (not exactly my favourite you’ll understand), but those pipes and drums have an awful tendency to grate after a while don’t they darlings?

On a side note; good Lord, they’re at it in Australia too?! I presume then New Zealand as well?! I reckon a Sword Dance/Hakka (as performed by the Auckland chapter of ‘Dykes on Bikes’!) dance-off would be an absolute hoot! :)

Next I give you Norway’s finest,
Annbjørg Lien:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ioX9-UGboc

Isn’t she just absolutely gorgeous?! Oh and how she can play! Admit it darlings, seeing a woman employ her hands in such a skilled manner can be… well, pleasantly distracting, can’t it?!

Just for you dear Snarks, Annbjørg playing with that notorious ‘goer’, Catriona Macdonald of Shetland. Incidentally those idiots at the Beeb completely stuffed up the ruddy subtitles. That’s not what he said at all! No, what he said was:

“And now… SGALGG – the fiddle edition. Enjoy America!”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VDBD_FBvSEc

Top notch ‘eye sex’ combined with top notch fiddle playing - now, that’s what I call multitasking!

Slàinte!

PS I once had the good fortune to hear a fabulous little tale from an ex-Highland dancer. (Their poor knees often pack up within a shockingly scant number of years. What troopers!) It went something like this; she was competing- (Yawn! I absolutely loathe all the damn ‘competing’ in the arts, don’t you darlings?) Anyway, there she was competing in some bloody Highland Dancing competition or other and what do you know; descending from a particularly satisfying (high points scoring?) leap she only went and crashed right through the stage! No, really, she went straight through the damn thing! The old timbers were likely shot through with wood worm or something? I mean, it’s not like the poor thing was in the least over-weight. (How could you be doing the old Highland dancing?!) Anyway, forget the knees; it was the humiliation that put paid to her career!

P(2)S Psst! Anyone else heard those rumours about Enya secretly harbouring some hot chick or other in that castle of hers?! (I bet those secret passages come in damn handy!) Tell you what Snarks darling; I shall investigate for you and the readers. I will endeavour to get myself an invite to the next castle cheese, wine, and chanting extravaganza! Then again, perhaps not; I have an awful niggling suspicion that old Enya dabbles in a lot more than just S&M and mushroom farming in her dungeon! Darlings, I am of course referring here to the so-called… ‘dark arts’. :)

Anyway darlings, what are your thoughts on this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KPiqmrSHitU
‘Ping’ anyone? Anyone? :)

(Incidentally, don’t some Irishwomen have quite THE most striking eyes?!)

(An inebriated? :) ) Rosie O’Donnell tries to entice (a scandalised? :) ) Enya into going drinking with her! :D

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ogcy1mglKGY (07:15)

Yes Rosie, you really had the whole gay thing securely under wraps back then, didn’t you? Like hell you did!!! :D I also believe you took quite the shine to that Irishwoman with the “beautiful spiritual voice”?! Come come, darling, you know I know you did! :D

P(3)S Hee hee! It took *all that lot* to go up against one wee Italian! :)

tank top tuesday is my favorite weekday

cocoro38 said...

i don't know why,
but tank top is warmer than t-shirt
when i wear it under other layers.

my guessing is that,
something fits well,
keeps the energy more.

this is all in my mind now
when i read the posting.

thanks, nice day!

Lisa said...

Sub(overt)liminal messaging, Snarker. I went from zero to six tank tops in one shopping trip. Or maybe it's Naya...thanks for always finding a way to work her in to the tank top montage!

Emily said...

Hope. Rhona. Naya. So much sexy tanktopness, I can't even handle it.

I've never seen any of these ladies act/perform - never even heard of some of them. I NEED to remedy that with Claudia Black stat!! Ooft.

Anonymous said...

egghead, Brandi Carlile isn't a Southern Belle. She was born and raised just outside of Seattle, WA. Sometimes the ladies of the Pacific Northwest know how to wear a tank top. :)

Em said...

OMG - 'Should have watched Farscape'.... o_O

Yes. Yes you should... Go. Go Now. Run, don't walk. :-P

Farscape is all kinds of brilliant... a little crazy at times (a Looney Tunes-esque ep anyone?) but well worth it (especially S2 & 3)...

I may also be slightly biased as a) this is one of my fav shows ever and b) it was filmed in and stars many amazing Australian actors, and I live there... but anyhoo.

Claudia in a tank top is one of the many great things about that show (plus her acting is just off the charts!). Actually, that show is just chock full of brilliant ladies...

And Naya... Gah. Just Gah. *wistful sigh*
