salon's sexiest man living 2008

Because we cover the hard-hitting issue around here... take a look at Salon.com's Sexiest Man Living 2008. Among the seventeen heartthrobs that made the list are Chinese badminton bad boy Lin Dan, Harold and Kumar star Kal Penn, and Booker Prize-winning novelist Aravind Adiga.

Overall, I've got to say, it's pretty interesting list. The Clooneys, Pitts and McConaugheys are nowhere to be seen, instead replaced by guys like Seth Meyers, Tom Colicchio... and the 44th President of the United States. That's how Salon rolls, I guess. Save those other guys for People.

Special props to hip hop vlogger Jay Smooth, who also made the list. Very cool guy who I've mentioned here before. Brilliant. We'll be sitting on a panel together next March at South By Southwest. Looking forward to it.
