Separated at Birth: Personal Hygiene Edition (Updated!)


Updated, thanks to dear virtual friend Elvid who so graciously sent me a pic of the visual that made Sheena stand up and shriek.





Watching CBC News last night and New York Times reporter John F Burns is being interviewed. Sheena has no idea what he said. The resounding "Holy Crap What's With the Hair Do" reverberating through the room drowned out whatever observations he was offering to the nation.

he used to be the Globe's man in China back in the 70's when I worked there, very strange man, very strange... rather a coup for the Globe having the first real bureau in Peking as it was called then...

Hey, that's not John F Burns - that's Dr. Who, aged into the next century by evil forces.

BTW, Sheena have you watched Brick? Everyone is raving about this as the movie of the (last) year - I finally caught it and I really couldn't bear it. I had to turn it off three times and take an extended break - took two days, in four pieces, to watch it.

Is this the filme, Jason?
Brick on imdb.com

No, have not seen it. Will check it out.

Spy? Have you seen it? You see everything.

That's the one. Man I found it difficult. Some really great technical expertise with camera tricks and sound, but I thought the actor directing was off, most of the casting was off, and the pacing was weak - but again, that's just me, EVERYone loves this movie. I'm the wrong one here!

when Burns copy came through (NYT wires) it was then sent to the Globe's lawyers that had his codes, he would often send innocuous sounding 'letters' to Eddie Phelan (his private editor) that would be used to decifer the coming article. You'd think the Chinese embassy would be pissed as would the Gov. back in China, but they kinda liked him despite his expose's? He crossed lines often and was eventually censored by Dic Doyle which led to his moving to NYT permanently... was Doyle heard of after he Senatized himself? All this is well known, no official secrets being spilled here.... knock knoc.l-=-p.l;=13fgrvkefhbcmn

At least it's real. I've always been fascinated by Garth Drabinsky's chemo-wig.

I didn't know Darth Grab-insky had a wig. Amazing. Chemo couldn't happen to a better person.

I watched The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes last night, Billy Wilder's last film. Ughh.

Just watched Holiday - I had no idea there was a third Cary Grant/Katherine Hepburn movie. They really are the greatest team-up in history. Although Anjelica Huston and Raul Julia sure gave them a run for their money.

Say, if that Burns guy shaved his head, he'd be a GREAT Uncle Fester!

Wow, that updated photo really shows me what you're talking about. I love it, it has serious character.

Ah... the days of BIG HAIR...

I hope we don't have another big hair era anytime soon. When I look at 80s pics, I wonder what people were thinking to make fruit baskets out of their hair.
