Geoffrey Rush Is The Coolest

Tags: , ,

Who could not love that face, even when placed next to the crazy that is Helena Bonham Carter? Better question: Who is he making that face at? Me? You? A sexy paparazzi with whom he has been carrying on a secret love affair?

Personal Dilemma: Every time I see the name Geoffrey I have absolutely zero impulse to pronounce it Jeffrey and instead say Joffrey.

Do Yourself A Favor

And look through this entire photo archive of the of New York Subway Historical photos. I’d pick one or two, but I honestly can’t narrow them down. The ones behind the scenes that show how they clean the cars and general maintenance are especially cool. And they definitely make me appreciate the city as it stands now. It’s only when I see actual images of the city in the 80s why everyone was so afraid of the crime.

News From Men Who Give Us Naked Women

Playboy is putting together the classiest of coffee-table books that will consist of some of their greatest covers. Makes one wonder why they hadn’t jumped on that bandwagon earlier, when we all know that they have been making puzzles of their centerfolds for some time.

In other news, Penthouse founder Bob Guccione died on Wednesday after a long battled with Lung Cancer. He was 79. Started a little more than a decade after Playboy, Guccione wanted to create a more explicit version of the men’s magazine, and often faced even more outcry than Playboy for his choice. So how does The New York Times choose to commemorate his life? By ending his obituary with the following passage:

“Creditors foreclosed on the Guccione mansion, and he moved out in 2006. (Penthouse magazine, however, is still being published.) Dozens of items from the town house — fireplace mantels, marble columns, even a circular staircase — were auctioned off by a Connecticut gallery in 2009 for a fraction of their presale estimates, with the proceeds going to a charity. ‘Kind of gaudy,’ said Dave Kerr, a prospective buyer looking skeptically over the lot. ‘It wouldn’t work in our house. I guess he lived a different lifestyle.'”

What a lovely way to finish a retrospective of someones life; commenting on the ugly nature of their belongings.
