Voucher Ankles has a post about a bizarre homemade bumper sticker. Anti-Clinton and... confused. It's so weird
Getty Noni Ryder is engaged. If you guessed "musician" you are correct. How did you guess?

Random Lauper Loving
Oh No They Didn't Turns out Jimmy Kimmel wanted Cyndi Lauper in that "I'm F***ing Ben Affleck" video but couldn't get her
Boy Culture pointed to this car commercial which sneaks Cyndi Lauper's new song so I quickly watched it since I love me some Cyndi. What he didn't warn his readers about was that Takeshi Kaneshiro is the star of the commercial. I went in expecting one great thing and got two. Takeshi... sigh Too bad it wasn't like The Hire so I could look at him for the length of a short film rather than a commercial.

I'm really not wild about the comic-stuff, but Downey is giving it an undeniable edge and just for him I'll probably give it a shot.

Re: Cinema Shirtlessness. I just ordered Love is a Many Splendored Thing on sale at amazon. Holden is shirtless on the DVD cover and I started to wonder how many films he appeared in shirtless. Picnic was definitely another. Are their certain actors that lend themselves to lack of shirts in their movies, like the present-day Matthew M?

I appreciate the mention very much, I'm happy my own passion for pecks is shared among the public.

Gabrielloak: I got carried away with Mitchum, but I can think of a few other classic stars who were often encouraged to remain shirtless. Lancaster springs to mind as probably being the most obvious. Before 1960 there are very few films where he doesn't bear all, and quite a few after that as well.

Yes, houseofmirthandmovies, Lancaster loved to show off his body even when he was older--The Swimmer!
