You might be wondering, Ruth, who is that hot guy? I'm glad you asked! That's Matt Mixon. Today is his 29th birthday. Happy birthday Matt! I don't know what he's doing for his birthday this year, but here's what he did for his 27th birthday:( Picture! )
That didn't quite answer your question, did it? The actual answer is that Matt is Andy Hurley's BFF and a member of Fuck City. Matt first came to fandom's attention when Fall Out Boy headlined the Honda Civic Tour. They had two buses, and Andy let Patrick have the back lounge bedroom on their bus in exchange for the right to bring along two friends: Matt and their trainer Tyler.
In the world of Fuck City, Matt is FC2. It took me a ridiculously long time to figure out that they're numbered in order that they moved into the house. Well, sort of. Andy is FC1 because he owns the house, but Matt flew home early from the HCT to move them both in, so I think technically he was the first one to move in. The story behind FC is that when Andy went full-time with Fall Out Boy, he vowed that if they made it big, he would buy a house and let his friends live there. (I highly recommend Andy's origin story blog
; it pretty much reads like a polygamy AU. They also tell the origin story in the first podcast.) Andy also agreed to support Matt until he was making $60K/year, which Matt upped to $80K/year. As if that weren't enough, they sound totally married on their podcast (feed

On Podcast 2, someone asked if they had to have "super gay sex" with someone else in FC, who would it be? Matt says Ryan, which makes Andy jealous so he chooses Kyle out of spite:fcpodcast2clip1
Later in the same podcast, Matt talks about the comparison between his dick and Ryan's. Andy assures him that they're both pretty radical:fcpodcast2clip2
In another podcast, Matt tells the story about how he and Ryan used to watch porn and jerk off together when they shared a room:fcpodcast8clip1
That's only the beginning of the slashiness of the podcast. I highly recommend listening to it.
But let me get back to the real part of this treat: the pictures. Warning: There is one NSFW picture in here.( Hot Mixon is hot. )

Sources: the showna pictures were taken from flickr. (She no longer has them publicly available, but you can find them from Matt's dad's flickr, which I will tell you about but would feel creepy linking to. If you do go find it, he also has both a baby picture of Matt and what schuyler
referred to as "the single gayest graduation photo in the history of photography.") The rest of them were taken from Matt's MySpace
