i love when shows/movies very obviously acknowledge and make fun of body doubles. my favorite example is probably in wayne's world 2. when liz lemon is shown in these jeans that make her ass look good, it is clearly a model. but damn, i'd like those pale blue cuffed skinny jeans.

she described her hair as flipped at the bottom, and that she was wearing a brocade vest. all very true.

when my mom and i would watch that sketch, we used to think 50 was so old. love her pants.

the last photo that is slightly different interests me. it kind of brings you back from just looking at a photograph, and you actually realize that these people lived. i love this little girl, she seems weirdly modern.


love this outfit so.

love that mouth expression, like she's working so hard to get her words out.

POTH is probably my favorite character on boardwalk empire. she provides the show with some much needed humor. my favorite lines of her's are, "you should grow a mus-tache" and "he's aaall man to me" in a heavy new york/new jersey accent. i predict she is going to go crazy, do some damage, and possible kill someone by the end of the season. can't wait! 

paz has always intrigued me, ever since i saw her in, a walk to remember as a high school mean girl, and the cider house rules as a weirdo orphan. "crazy girls" or what i see as crazy/hot mess/spacey/unstable/bad girls alway intrigues me. other examples of this are courtney love, taryn manning, natasha lyonne, kate moss, lindsay lohan, rayanne graff, kim kelly of freaks and geeks, parker posey, sienna miller, winona ryder, amanda peet as rachel in igby goes down, marla sokoloff as gia in full house, kirsten dunst as nicole in crazy/beautiful, the olsens, amy winehouse, christina ricci characters, lisa bonet, and there are more i am forgetting. i think i like them because i am not like that at all and never could be, so i live vicariously though them as a way of getting that out of my system. i bet lots of people feel the same way.

love it! wanna live there!

this woman's face is stright outta the dust bowl

this woman plays the wife of michael shannon on boardwalk empire. the first moment i saw her face, i immediately thought of the following two famous photos, taken during the dust bowl era by walker evans and dorothea lange, the ones that everyone learns about in high school u.s. history class/if they take a history of photography class at a liberal arts college. it's be pretty awesome to have a face like that today, the way this actress does.

how'd they do that?
