This week’s hottie is the adorable Scott Joplin.

I love a man who plays piano, and Joplin could play a mean piano.  He lived from 1867 to 1917 and in that time he basically invented ragtime and wrote several very famous pieces still enjoyed today including “The Entertainer” and “Maple Leaf Rag.”    He was posthumously awarded a Pulitzer Prize for his singular influence on American music.  Scott, you make me want to leave my piano out of tune forever and ever.
