Liz Taylor smells something

Liz, Liz, what do you think about the casting of Lindsay Lohan in your biopic?

This is, as Retrogasm says, a perfect hipster look (flares are  ironic in a world of jeggings) with perhaps the exception of the enormous rock on her finger that tells you it’s the real Dame Elizabeth.

Happy Birthday, Suzi Quatro!

Happy birthday, you icon of the black leather catsuit and the femullet.

I’ll try not to hold it against you how old you make me feel now you’re turning 62. Please God you’re not wandering a Floridian Walmart somewhere, in search of practical outfits.

Lessons from Professor Bill Murray

We’re back! Thanks to Ubuntu upgrades for taking my computer offline for the past half-week. It was lovely to be welcomed back to the interwebs by Philosopher King Bill Murray, seen here nattering on adorably on the subjects of spiced rum, Wes Anderson, and quality Madras pants.

Oh, Bill Murray, will  you marry me? Or at least lend me that jacket? Once a preppie, always a preppie; check out the topsiders and Wayfarers. Bill Murray is the true Midlife Maharajah of Madras.

Happy Cougar’s Day

Helen Mirren and Judi Dench take over the WORLD

It’s their world. We just live in it. Sure, sure, only one of them has reproduced, but just think how much greater the world would be if we all had a little of that DNA.

You know what to do, so do it in the comments.

The Extremely Mad Hatter

Even though he seems to be shorter than I always thought, you still don’t want to piss off Buster Keaton. Not only could the guy throw a punch, but he also knows exactly what looks good on him. Enjoy this delightful little video of a youthful Keaton being taken hat shopping by his burly, bullying father. Who wouldn’t look good unless you put a bag over his face, but that’s neither here nor there.

Post Hump Day Hunks: Tom of Finland clothing

We’ve been neglecting you. We’re sorry; the Easter Lindt hangover went on far too long this year (that’s what happens when you combine premium chocolate with allergy meds and wash them down with Jack Daniels WHO KNEW???). Here, to make up for it, are a bevy of brawnies from the Tom of Finland clothing line‘s fall/winter 1998 show, inspired by the (in)famous and iconic gay illustrator. What’s surprising to me is how good these clothes are; not jokey (except Mister Hot Pants and Earflap Hat) and essentially classics cut with an eye to enhancing a sexy silhouette.

Enjoy.
