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.

It just occurred to me that Manson is older than Hendricks.

I mean, of course she is. But in my mind, a 53-year-old Hendricks turns on the Bose in her office, hears Garbage and says, "I like the sound of this."

Thinking of Dali photos and his muses, I like the wiki extract for Amanda Lear:

Lear's origins are unclear, with the singer herself providing different information regarding her background and keeping her birth year a secret even from her long-term husband. Contested facts include her birth date and place, her birth sex, names and nationalities of her parents and the location of her upbringing.
