Me and my good friend Peter Bogdanovich, earlier tonight. (Posting in Bogdanovich style.) Seconds later, with a cry of "Enough already!", I ripped off his ascot and beat him senseless.

Isn't that the guy who was friends with the dude from the Paul Masson commercials? Has he done any acting besides playing Tony's shrink's shrink on The Sopranos? Or is he, like, an actual shrink?

We're scrolling through the comedy poll.

Bogdanovich (ashen, mortified): "I'm not seeing What's Up, Doc?"
Me: "Check back Monday...Look here, though--Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle. That's a good one, right?"
Bogdanovich: "Yes, that's a good one."

(He was really great last night, introducing The Last Picture Show. I'm sure he's told the same stories word-for-word 10,000 times by now, but his impressions of Ford, Ben Johnson, and George Cukor were fantastic. The story where Cary Grant recounts the time the Kennedys called him up just to hear his voice was the highlight of the night.)

did some street theater for april fool's, a "march for the rich" where they visited their friends at the chamber of commerce, the police department, the american legislative exchange council, etc to raise a toast of thanks. "without your hard work we wouldn't own democracy!"

shortly into the march a black bloc of anarchists showed up and proceeded to "crash" each of their toasts

this was in front of the pd

Thanks! It took me 15 years to get to the precise shade of Miki Berenyi that I wanted it.. but I'm also facing a large window with (this morning's) sun so it's biased.

Yay!!! I'm getting my colour done this weekend (many blonde roots going on) so the inevitable WD Lex, ENBB and Bene_G LL photo will have some spectacular colour. A blonde, a brunette and a redhead walk into a Pulp concert..

i feel like a failed dye experiment can work if you own it, like "fuck yeah my hair is puke orange and socially unacceptable in institutions like banks and post offices, and i don't even care, similar to how a badass would respond", but instead, predictably, i would preemptively say stuff like "i was aiming for red but it came out puke orange, aw man i don't even know why you're talking to me, aw man"

I had orange hair for a while because I sprayed that Sun-In bleaching spray in my hair every day for a week and stood under the heat lamp in our bathroom

the top of my head was bright orange by week's end

it was not a good look

"i was aiming for red but it came out puke orange, aw man i don't even know why you're talking to me, aw man"

my life in a nutshell, hah. I balance being annoyingly smug online with being desperately self deprecating in real life.

Sun-in! Amazing. I got a similar weird root situation when I bleached my hair from black to orange - the roots were white. NAGL. I have had so many hair horrors over the years. I am never changing this red, if I can help it.

Ooof, you've reminded me of the ill-advised plum brown I rocked for a while (I was one of those new colour a month kids). Terrible.

she started dancing to that (Finefinemusic), Tuesday, 3 April 2012 19:02 (2 years ago) Permalink

purple just never works out well on brown hair unless you bleach it white. or buy that horrible spray paint.
everyone including me that tried purple ended up with gross puce-colored large-intestine-colored hair

Peppermint Patty Hearst (VegemiteGrrl), Tuesday, 3 April 2012 19:03 (2 years ago) Permalink

I played around with my color a lot for a couple years in the 90s. My favorite was bleaching it white and then putting old lady silver dye on it (not blue, SILVER). I looked pretty great for about six days until it just reverted to looking bleachy again.

Johnny Fever, Tuesday, 3 April 2012 19:05 (2 years ago) Permalink

hah yeah i have dark brown hair so that is probably why that happened

y'tulip, y'pea-brained earwig (donna rouge), Tuesday, 3 April 2012 19:06 (2 years ago) Permalink

I did purple once after bleaching and it worked well, until the purple faded - except from the spots that were bleached twice from when I gave myself polka dots the week before. So I had bright yellow hair with purple spots. This was right before meeting my future inlaws who weren't all that into it.

I predicted that beard of JS's would be trouble--clearly the poor child has been accidentally glued to it and can't be removed. (Congratulations.)
