Hump Day Hottie – Tim Minchin

Well, it is Wednesday once again and I shamefully have not put up a post for a whole week.  I am a dreadful slacker, I know.  But since it is Wednesday, that means it is time for another Hump Day Hottie!!!  Woo-hoo!

With everything that has been going on in the world, and in particular the Japan disasters, I would like to spotlight an unusual hotttie – Tim Minchin.  The only reason I say “unusual”, is that some might say he is not conventional.  But I look not only at physical beauty (which Tim has) but internal as well.  Very important.  And get used to it, because I am likely to pick more unusual ones – it makes us unique.

Tim was born in the United Kingdom to Australian parents and grew up in Perth.  He is a comedian, actor and musician but is most known for his musical comedy.  In 2001, Tim married his life-long sweetheart, Sarah, whom he met when he was 17.

Tim has a, um . . ., unique onstage persona. He generally goes barefoot, saying it makes him feel more comfortable.  His wild hair and heavy eye makeup, which he considers important because he is unable to gesture while playing the piano and so relies on his face for expressions and gestures.  Tim says the eyeliner makes his features more distinguishable for the audience.

Now anyone who is familiar with Tim’s work has had the experience of laughing and crying at the same time.  Although “stunningly beautiful” would not normally be a response to his songs, I feel the one I have chosen to spotlight, Not Perfect, is just that.  He has captured a very difficult spiritual concept and given it his personal twist.  When you can look at yourself and say, “It’s not perfect, but its mine,” its a beautiful thing.
