Pics from the Market Days live show!

Steamworks’ DJ Robbie Martin was kind enough to send me some pictures from the live show that Dirk and I performed at Steamworks Chicago on Sunday night! (Click on each pic to see a larger version.) And in case you missed the webcast, here’s a reenactment of what went down. Sorta. 🙂


Earlier in the day we played “Twisted Twister” at the Steamworks booth along with fellow Titan Men Hunter Marx, Christopher Daniels, and Ethan Anders. We had so much fun… and Steamworks raised over $3,000 for Chicago House, a community organization that provides housing and support to youth and families struggling with HIV and AIDS. What a great day! Dirk and I really love working with the Steamworks guys, and hope we get a chance to do it again in the near future!


Preview of cumming attractions

Dirk and I filmed this when we were in New York a couple of weeks ago. Wannna see more? Come to our live show TONIGHT at 1 am at Steamworks Chicago. Yeah, it’s Sunday and we know it’s a school night… but you can be late to work the next morning. Your boss will understand.

We’ll also be playing (nearly) naked Twister at the Steamworks’ Market Days booth all Sunday afternoon to benefit Chicago House. Cum say hi.

Feeding the machine

A lot of people ask me about my diet, so I figured it would make a good blog post… plus my mind’s on food right now anyway because it’s lunchtime.

When I was younger, I was pretty fat. I’d have ice cream all the time, tons of pizza, a few Big Macs a week… heck, once in a while I would even sit down with a tub of frosting and a spoon and chow down. After I graduated from college, though, I realized that I was treating my body like shit, so I joined a gym and started eating healthier food. And it paid off. I started looking better, feeling better… and most importantly, feeling better about myself. When I ate well, I felt good. And I continue to eat well to this day… because I love feeling good! Plus, as Dirk is fond of saying, when you’re in good shape, sex is even more fun. :mrgreen:

I don’t maintain as strict a regimen as some of my friends, measuring out calories and whatnot; I just employ common sense when making food choices throughout the day, and try to space my meals out rather than binging all at once. Here’s a typical Jackman dietary day:

    • 8 am: Breakfast! If Dirk’s around, he usually whips up some scrambled eggs for us… but when I’m on my own, protein shake it is, cuz I hate to cook. I’ll have 2 scoops of protein powder, water, a banana, and a couple tablespoons of Metamucil (don’t laugh!) blended in my fabulously-indispensable Magic Bullet. I’ll also have a few scoops of cottage cheese if I’m extra hungry.
    • 11 am: Spinach salad with some grilled chicken or lean beef on top and assorted veggies like broccoli, edamame, or zucchini thrown in. I like plain old balsamic vinegar for my dressing – none of that calorie-laden creamy stuff for me! Sometimes I’ll have a Builder Bar for dessert. The mint chocolate-flavored ones are my favorite.
    • 3 pm: Getting hungry again! I’ll either have a bowl of brown rice with a can of tuna mixed into it, or head to Whole Foods and eat an entire package of raw tofu hot dogs. You may think that’s gross, but I love ’em… really! And they’re a great source of protein.
    • 6 pm: Nearly gym time. Back to the Magic Bullet for some Greek yogurt, protein powder, water, and ice, all blended together to make a delicious yogurt smoothie… or if I’m at Starbucks, one of their spinach and feta wraps does the job nicely.
    • 9 pm: Home from the gym. Two chicken breasts grilled in my George Foreman, topped with low-fat cheese and tomato sauce, served over brown rice or quinoa with a side of steamed broccoli. (After the Magic Bullet, my George Foreman and my fuzzy logic rice cooker are my most prized culinary possessions.) If I’m feeling lazy, I’ll order a teriyaki chicken wrap from a Boston-based burrito chain and pick it up on the way home, but I make sure they use a whole wheat tortilla and brown rice.

That’s about it! Of course, I can’t guarantee that this diet will deliver a better body or help you have better sex. All I can tell ya is that I eat this way and I feel fantastic! And the sex is pretty fucking amazing.
