The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Semi-prurient interests

Since by nature I tend to be squarer than SpongeBob's pants, any revelation here that I am occasionally subject to the natural (and, well, okay, unnatural) urges that afflict us from time to time tends to get horrified emails, or worse, disgusted comments.

Still, some things arouse my, um, curiosity. For instance, the one question everyone seems to want to know about actress Lindsay Lohan is whether whether she's had the front line of her balcony resculpted. * I don't really want to know, but I'd love to catch a few outtakes from the photo session for the cover of Entertainment Weekly #797, which features Lindsay in nothing but tights yet shows scarcely any flesh. (Score one for the trompe l'oeil guys.)

Speaking of magazine pieces, whose idea was it to pose Dakota Fanning, not yet ten fercrissake, in the November Movieline's Hollywood Life with her hair tossed back and her legs crossed, like some sort of HO-scale Gwyneth Paltrow?

And oh, just because it sounds so utterly bizarre: imagine a porn film, preferably a short one, in which all the participants have Tourette's syndrome. **

* Link probably not safe for work.

** Link definitely not safe for work.

Real or not, they sure are purty.

Either way, I'd like to think that should someone be rude enough to ask "Are those really yours?" she'd have the presence of mind to respond, "Of course they are, and I have the receipt to prove it."

I don't understand why people get so worked up about plastic surgery. Looking pretty IS her job.

Too bad she's so into tanning. So young - such bad skin.

Solution, dan: Fake tanner. That's why she's delightfully orange. And though looking pretty is her job, it'd be wonderful if she'd shut up to do it.

Earlier shots of her suggest that she's decidedly, maybe even delightfully, freckled; I suspect she's trying her best to cover up.

Hmmm. Freckled? Orange?

I'd choose freckled. Orange is so ... Kerry-like.

I've been giggling all morning about the Tourette's movie.
