Make the Manolo the #1 Hoffster!

Manolo says, it is rare for the Manolo to seek assistance, as he prides himself on his self-sufficiency, but now there is something he desires so desperately that he comes before his internet friends and asks them for the favor.

What the Manolo ardently desires is to be named the #1 Hoffster by the peoples at the St. Martins Press.

The #1 Hoffster is the official #1 internet fan of the magnificent multi-talented genius David Hasselhoff, and if the Manolo does not qualify for that, who does?

To that end, the Manolo now asks you, his close internet friends, to email the peoples at the St. Martins Press politely stating the case for the Manolo’s primacy in the matter of Hasselhoff admiration.

Here is the email address: [email protected]

Be polite but firm. The Manolo the Shoeblogger should be the #1 Hoffster!

Please, in the spirit of the season, help the brother out.

The Artist Stumbles

Manolo says, yes, it is the mighty Hasselhoff shirtless and intoxicated.

The Manolo asks you, which great artist has not also been tormented by his demons?

Among many artistic geniuses drink seems to be the preferred method of placating these demons, drink and the occasional bare-chested cheeseburger.

Clearly, the Hasselhoff is in excellent company.

Don’t Hassel the Hoff!

Manolo says, the Manolo’s super fantastic librarian friend Kim has just alerted him to the impending arrival of perhaps the first great literary masterpiece of the 21st century!

Don't Hassel the Hoff!

Here, from the publisher, is the description of this magnum opus.

The Los Angeles Times called him a “counterculture icon,” and TV Guide dubbed him one of “TV’s Ten Most Powerful Stars,” but true aficionados simply call him “The Hoff.”

Don’t Hassel the Hoff follows David Hasselhoff’s phenomenal career, from his earliest childhood role in Peter Pan to his latest adventure, starring in Mel Brooks’s Tony award-winning musical, The Producers. There is no better time to celebrate Hasselhoff’s life and a career that continues to grow and thrive. As the star of the extremely popular classic television shows, “Baywatch” and “Knight Rider,” Hasselhoff is an international mega-star, with platinum album sales and starring roles on Broadway and London’s West End.

As this fascinating memoir reveals, there’s more to this handsome superstar than great hair, and legs that look good while running down a beach. “The Hoff” is also a smart, caring man with a huge heart.

“This book is my opportunity to print something from my heart, to tell the truth about what happened to me on the long and winding road from Baltimore to Baywatch to Broadway – and beyond. And the truth is not to be found in tabloid stories but in my actions: I am a good father and tried to be a good husband. I love people and the emotional rollercoaster that goes with human relationships. I love all the bewildering, crazy and wonderful things that life has to offer. This book is about my successes and my failures, my strengths and my weaknesses. And, above all, it is about the hope contained in the Knight Rider slogan: “One man can make a difference.” –David Hasselhoff

Full of behind-the-scenes looks at Hasselhoff’s television series, celebrations of his proudest moments, and the truths about his struggles with relationships and alcohol, Don’t Hassel the Hoff is both highly entertaining and deeply personal, making this an engrossing page-turner from start to finish.

Long live “The Hoff.”

The Manolo must now go order ten copies Don’t Hassel the Hoff: The Autobiography of Genius.

El Coche Super Fantastico!

Manolo says, ayyyyyyyy! The K.I.T.T. is for sale!

KITT, the flame-throwing, river-jumping, talking muscle car from the `80s TV show “Knight Rider,” is up for sale. Restored to its debut-season glory, the modified black 1982 Pontiac Trans Am is offered at $149,995 at a Dublin auto dealership. Johnny “Vette” Verhoek of Kassabian Motors has had the car, officially called Knight Industries Two Thousand, on display for about a month.

It is one of four documented “camera cars” used for close-up shots and scenes where
David Hasselhoff, who played Michael Knight in the series, was behind the wheel.

Although it cannot achieve the 300 mph speeds that KITT reached, soar 50 feet in the air or throw smoke bombs, key features of the star car are intact. Perhaps most important, the red scanner light on the nose glows and makes a humming noise.

Now, if only the Manolo had $150,000 and the driver’s license

Hoff Broadway

Manolo says, Filled with enormous amounts of the high-grade testosterone, the glorious and manly Hasselhoff obviously does not look very much like the woman. Although, the Manolo will say, that the Hoff is nonetheless much the more convincing than this person.

P.S. Many thanks to the Manolo’s internet friend the Lisa for the link!

Help the Hoff

Manolo says, the magnificent Hasselhoff he is looking for the new chick!

Former Baywatch star David Hasselhoff is refusing to allow his recent divorce get him down – he already has plans to find a new “chick”.

Hasselhoff divorced from his wife of 16 years, Pamela Bach, last month.

But now the 54-year-old is searching for his ideal partner, and she must be clever.

He says, “I’m coming to England in September and I want to find myself a beautiful girlfriend. But I don’t want some dumb blonde. I’d like a woman who’s really intelligent.

“I saw this girl recently who must have stepped out of the office during her lunch break and was wearing work clothes and glasses, and I thought to myself, ‘That’s what I want, a chick who’s career-orientated.'”

Clever? Career oriented?

The Manolo has the suggestion….

Future Mrs. Hoff?

Perhaps the Manolo’s many readers can leave the better suggestions for the future Mrs. Hasselhoff in the comments below.

Snark Hoff

Manolo says, Ayyyyyy! The Manolo’s internet friends at the very funny Snarkywood have snarked the Manolo’s beloved Hasselhoff .
