|Mar-19-16|| ||zanzibar: There are all sorts here:
Good for those liking a little formality.
But I'm left wondering... are we supposed to know all those people?
|Mar-23-16|| ||zanzibar: Today's subject - quintuplets:
Pick your favorite, they're all quintacular!
|Mar-23-16|| ||WannaBe: Amazing what copy & paste can do now-a-days.|
|Mar-24-16|| ||zanzibar: Photoshop, the greatest invention since sliced bread.|
(Or Donald's hair?!)
|Mar-26-16|| ||zanzibar: Some dolls furnish a flurry of furious flourish, others play lines that are clean and shiny:|
|Mar-27-16|| ||zanzibar: <Being a great theoretical physicist, Dirac liked to theorize about all the problems of daily life, rather than to find solutions by direct experiment. Once, at a party in Copenhagen, he proposed a theory according to which there must be a certain distance at which a woman's face looks its best. He argued that at d = infinite one cannot see anything anyway, while at d = 0 the oval of the face is deformed becaue of the small aperture of the human eye, and many other imperfections (such as small wrinkles) become exaggerated. Thus there is a certain optimum distance at which the face looks its best. |
"Tell me, Paul," [Gamow, a Russian physicist] asked, "how close have you seen a woman's face?"
"Oh,"replied Dirac, holding his palms about two feet apart, "about that close.">
So let's get a blow up of these two dolls...

|Mar-28-16|| ||zanzibar: I found out who did the art in the previous post - Alan Boileau, 3d wood sculptor/painter:|
His "Two Men Playing Chess" shows up as image #27, pretty far down. I happen to think it rates better.
Here's the artist:
He's quite a talented doll.
|Mar-29-16|| ||zanzibar: I think I just found my inspiration for a new chess piece design:|
|Apr-03-16|| ||HeMateMe: I've never played with anything that delicate:
|Apr-04-16|| ||zanzibar: <HMM> I'm very impressed by her pinky etiquette.|

Two dolls that came up recently from my <CG> adventures:
...and the beast
|Apr-04-16|| ||zanzibar: Maybe this is better... http://www.ancientcraft.co.uk/reena...|

A photograph by Mathew Brady.
|Apr-04-16|| ||zanzibar: Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, is a cliche never truer....|
But the beast who contributed the <Venus of Moravany> beauty was a mammoth.
She was found just up the road from Kolisch's hometown I believe.
There's a whole category of Venus's:
Not all beauty fades with age I suppose.
|Apr-11-16|| ||zanzibar: Not much of chess connection here, well, one doll shows up on chess.com and the other has a chess review blog.|
Perhaps these two are connected? Maybe one in the same?
|May-02-16|| ||zanzibar: While doing some research on <chess + fish> on google, for some obscure reason, I came across this:|
Huh?! At least there's some chess there.
|May-03-16|| ||WannaBe: https://www.google.com/search?hl=en...|
|May-03-16|| ||zanzibar: <WannaBe> Hate to break it to you...|
(from your source)
|May-03-16|| ||HeMateMe: that's hot. I've always thought those power girl relationships were sexy. Unless they look like Martina Navratilova and Rene Richards:|
That's Elton John, on the far right.
|May-04-16|| ||Retireborn: I cried 20-odd years ago when I realised that Jodie Foster probably didn't want to marry me. True story.|
|May-04-16|| ||HeMateMe: I had a crush on her, too. It wasn't until the internet that everyone found out she's gay.|
|May-05-16|| ||Retireborn: <HMM> I think if you watch some of her films (Carny, Accused, Hotel New Hampshire, Silence of Lambs) the hints are there, though :)|
|May-05-16|| ||HeMateMe: Near the end of the film Carny two sweaty butch dykey type gals try to pick her up. It's very obvious that they are on the make for this teenage girl. She's working one of the carny scam games and acts interested so that the adult women will keep spending money on the games while she's behind the counter. Probably a coincidence.|
Accused is a rape victim story. I didn't see anything gay in that, except that she plays a kind of white trash gal. I think she asks Kelly McGillis "Lets go out for a drink" during the trial when the lawyer still has to stay home at night and work. Seemed harmless enough.
People "in the business" always seem to know about these things before the general public does. Not that I really care one way or the other. I've been watching her on TV since she was a child star appearing on Gunsmoke and shows like that.
Abby Wambach just got hired by ESPN to be a reporter. She's about as butch as you can look, so I guess things are opening up; you can be yourself and still be out in front of the camera and be accepted.
|May-25-16|| ||zanzibar: I think Jodie is indeed in this snippet:
The face is recognizable, and I've always heard she was one of 'em.
|May-25-16|| ||HeMateMe: Did Garry Glitter mail you that video clip?|
|May-25-16|| ||zanzibar: Glitter's in prison, he's not emailing anybody anything.|
Just for that....
