Wow, such a year! Of course, you know the big stories of 2008 in this site – the pimps and hos and the photoshopped naked guy [Yes, the photos were fixed. Fabricated. Forged. Really.]. But I think our big man for 2008 was Akihiro Sato, hands down. All posts about the Brazilian [with Japanese roots] model never failed to elicit positive comments and e-mails. He is really well-liked in the industry. And methinks 2009 will be a big year for him, too. What with showbiz knocking at his door, aside from the commercial endorsements and ramp assignments. Happy New Year everyone!
