I need something cute to cheer me up, after two posts in a row about the passing of Jeanne Cooper. And things don’t get much cuter than Ryan Gosling, especially when he’s reacting to sexual innuendo from his director. Sigh.
As a follow up to my post yesterday about the passing of Jeanne Cooper, here’s her last scene on The Young and the Restless, which aired less than a week ago, on Friday, May 4.
It’s a bit haunting, one last “good night” from Mrs. C. It’s so sad to me.
Either they knew she wasn’t coming back or this is quite a coincidence.
Confession: I’ve watched “The Young and the Restless” off and on since I was a little kid. It was on the TV when my mom would give me lunch and it was Katherine Chancellor (and her then boy-toy husband) who first caught my attention. And since she was the first character I noticed, I think it’ll be fitting if her tribute episode, whenever it airs, is the last time I watch the show.
As crazy as it sounds, after watching Jeanne Cooper for almost my whole life, I kind of feel like someone I really know has died. (And I want to be just like Katherine, boy-toy husbands and all, when I’m an old lady.)
From the most recent issue of 032c magazine, this is the most gorgeous photo of Cate Blanchett I’ve ever seen. [Click to enlarge.]
Here’s actor Chris Evans for the May 2013 issue of W magazine. Mark Segal is the photographer. Aside from the fact that this is a great portrait, I think Chris Evans is still one of the hottest men I’ve ever seen. [Click to enlarge.]
I recently watched Party Monster, about the rise and fall of the 1990s Club Kids in New York City. I’ve said it before, but unless you were there you have no idea what it was like to go out in the early 1990s, the kids today have no idea how boring and sterile even the best dance clubs are compared to what they were. It’s too bad.
I had forgotten that the club scene was responsible for creating so many people who are still pop culture icons: RuPaul; Amanda Lepore; designer Richie Rich; performance artist Leigh Bowery, who’s work you can still see in major museums, even though he died in 1994; and several DJs who still work today (Lady Miss Kier, DJ Keoki, David Guetta, to name a few).
I love seeing newscasters crack, it kind of reminds me that they’re just people, too. And while they kind of took it a little far with making fun of Lochte at the end here, really, who WOULD be able to keep it together after an interview like that?
These are my two favorite 1950s icons. I didn’t know they had ever met, and I’ve never seen a photo of them together before. But one website says that while they never worked together they were good friends, and as a joke they used to put on disguises and go to nude beaches together.
What do you think?
I know that back when I was a confused pre-teen, I first jacked off to Gregory Harrison. And Jon-Erik Hexum. And John Schnieder. Especially John Schneider. And Scott Baio. And Wally Cleaver. And Brian Bloom. And Mark Harmon. And . . .
