Dane Cook, Jeremy Piven, and Kid Rock.

CAVEAT: I'm only happy about this one because I like to pretend that the ceiling caved in two seconds after this photo was taken killing all three where they stood.

I like this photo, not totally unlikely, but still a whole lot of famous. Saw first on an ILM thread, I think.

Since seeing everything's photo last night I've had "oh bondage up yours" stuck in my head but in Carol Channing's voice. Which is actually kind of awesome

wait what?

Ed Beg was . . . a singer?

how did I never know this?

amazing

Benson and the Jets (ENBB), Friday, 8 August 2014 15:47 (1 month ago) Permalink

supposedly he has one of the biggest "talents" in Hollywood but I think that's pretty well-known at this point

Benson and the Jets (ENBB), Friday, 8 August 2014 15:48 (1 month ago) Permalink

I'm only going by what it said in Rob Javanovic's biography of Alex Chilton, but apparently it was a stand-up routine that Begley did, not singing.

everything, Friday, 8 August 2014 18:09 (1 month ago) Permalink

Yeah, that makes sense but I kind of wish he had this secret singing career nobody knew about.

Benson and the Jets (ENBB), Friday, 8 August 2014 18:13 (1 month ago) Permalink

Well, he was the original drummer in Spinal Tap!

Dali, Harpo

I Don't Wanna Ice Bucket With You (C. Grisso/McCain), Wednesday, 3 September 2014 03:41 (2 weeks ago) Permalink

Very much expected IMO, Dali was kind of a "look at me, I'm All-American goofy fun for all ages" postwar, right?

Doctor Casino, Wednesday, 3 September 2014 16:26 (2 weeks ago) Permalink

Harp with barbed-wire strings designed by Dali, who also wrote a script for them called "The Marx Brothers on Horseback Salad".

Sir Lord Baltimora (Myonga Vön Bontee), Wednesday, 3 September 2014 16:32 (2 weeks ago) Permalink

Yeah, they were friends for years. And Dali did a few drawings or paintings of or inspired by Harpo (Groucho too).

I saw one earlier, but it had Dave Grohl in it, kind of our generation's Alice Cooper/Salvador Dali.

pplains, Wednesday, 3 September 2014 18:32 (2 weeks ago) Permalink

Yeah, here it is. All three are musicians, so I guess it's no big deal.

Didn't know who the guy in the middle was, at first. I'll let you guess.

(Guy on the right obviously what's his face from the "Diners Drive-Ins & Dives" TV show... *quickly snaps fingers twice*... Val Kilmer.)

pplains, Wednesday, 3 September 2014 18:36 (2 weeks ago) Permalink

don't know about the middle guy, but I really wish it were Jarvis Cocker partying with Dave and Sammy. If anything's gonna cheer him up, it'd be a lil' Cabo Wabo
