Matt Nathanson: Cute on Music Choice, at least

The pictures of Matt Nathanson on MusicChoice are cute but when I looked him up online, as well as saw him performing on a late night show, ... totally not.

Music Choice pictures:

Online Pictures:

Video of "Faster" on Jimmy Kimmel

I don't care for him as seen on the video but I like the "online pictures" picture more than the Music Choice pictures. No accounting for taste, I guess?

No, to each their own. :-P

I guess the reason I like the Music Choice ones is because he looks ... vaguely nerdy, a little ruffled, and what appears to be red hair certainly helps. :)

I guess "to each their own" is a way to more clearly positively phrase it, but that's the connotation I intended.

I guess if I'd seen the last 2 MusicChoice pics first/only I'd have evaluated more positively - I can see them as kind of nerdy. The first two, and especially the first one, just read "rocker tool/douchebag" to me for some reason - maybe that smirky frown. Of course, the "online pic" could be read the same way but it's otter-y enough that I don't care. :D In the video there's something I don't like about his eyes and when he smiles I want to slap it off his face - probably the douchebag thing again.

I hadn't put my finger on why the video bothered me so much, but your description of a "douchebag" element is probably very accurate as to why. It can be a very fine line between "douchebag" and the sort of geeky look I typically go for. :)

Seconded on the slap it off his face. heheheh :-P

I've seen him live and he is so much hotter than those pictures portray.

Hmm... If he's hotter than the Music Choice pictures portray I might have to tell Ben to look out. XD

I've actually had the opposite thought before. It seemed in some cases that music choice had to go out of their way to find the least attractive pictures of some of their artists.

This is true. :-P

While some female artist was playing it had the info line of "Watch out! [so and so] is a certified sharpshooter!" and my first thought was "You go girl". XD
