Chalk Magazine - July 2008
One year ago, The Bakla Review debuted with a review of Chalk Magazine's annual UAAP/NCAA basketball special. Well, it's been a year, and the 2008 edition is here. There's even less basketball content in this one, if you can believe it, but somebody must have heard my gay prayers because this time, some boys are showing some serious skin. A six-page spread on select NCAA players (one for each participating school) is fan-tastic. The editors chose some actual hotties this time, and they're styled and photographed for a rough sexy appeal. Meanwhile, the boys from the other league, the UAAP, are dressed up to look stiff and boring, while everywhere else, it's the usual girly articles and shameless product placements. What those great but scant six pages really need to do is go forth and multiply. Maybe next year.
