Jeff Goldblum

Monday, February 1st, 2010

Remember Jeff Goldblum? Hint: he was the sarcastic 90′s guy with the square glasses in all the iMac commercials (and every record executive’s personal hero).

There was a widespread rumor that Goldblum was drunk during every one of his performances, which I think was probably only partly true (the other part was cocaine).

And for some reason I was certain that poor Jeff died. But I see from Jeff Goldblum’s wikipedia entry that I’m wrong and he’s indeed alive and kicking, and doing one of the 50 different Law & Orders. So I guess that means I can’t put him up to 88 just yet…

Well ‘two thumbs up’ on being alive, Jeff! Too bad I already made a memorial picture from when you looked hardcore in Jurassic Park:

RIP Jeff Goldblum

The American Gladiators

Wednesday, October 28th, 2009

I could care less about that new American Gladiators show, the original American Gladiators are definitely up to 88 in the coolest way possible. I used to love this show when I was a kid, it was so bad ass with the jousting and the human cannonball. But I think my favorite event was the one where they had a big network of hanging rings and you had to monkeybar along and throw the other person off. Check it out

The American Gladiators were definitely part of that unknowing 80′s homo-eroticism with Nitro the “arrogant dickhead” and Malibu the “surfer dude” (top and bottom ;) ).

Check out the intro

But the best is where Nitro ended up: confessing his steroids in his memoirs. It’s absolutely priceless, he talks about his shrinking penis and growing man-boobs: “Breast-chesticles is what they’re called on the street. Gynecomastia is the scientific name.” (From `Gladiator: A True Story of ‘Roids, Rage and Redemption`)
