And now for something completely different!

"Shirley Jones, the matriarch of the '70s television series "The Partridge Family," has been looking for a little media "exposure" and considering going au naturel. According to the New York Post, the former sitcom star is toying with the idea of posing nude for Playboy.

And her hubby is all over the idea. "She's still drop-dead gorgeous, and at the age of 75, a natural beauty," said Marty Ingels, who is also Shirley's manager. "
yeah that was kind of my thinking.
but sadly I'm at home and and all my toys are at work.

so if no one else tags yours I'll get it in the am.

They had a venomous ongoing feud with this man, but it was finally settled on a late-night talk show in '97.

that would be Ice Cube.
Wikipedia wrote:
Feud with Ice Cube
For over two years, Cypress Hill had a running feud with West Coast rapper and former friend Ice Cube. The feud allegedly started when B-Real played a demo of the then unreleased album Temples of Boom for Ice Cube. According to B-Real, Ice Cube asked if he could use the song "Throw Your Set in the Air" for the soundtrack of his upcoming film Friday. B-Real refused. Ice Cube then recorded the song "Friday", which features a similar hook to "Throw Your Set in the Air". Cypress Hill viewed this as biting (stealing), and recorded the song "No Rest for the Wicked", in which they attack Cube and accuse him of stealing their music.
Soon after "No Rest for the Wicked" was released, Ice Cube recorded the album Bow Down with his partners WC and Mack 10 of Westside Connection. The album contains two diss tracks aimed at Cypress Hill: "King of the Hill" and "Cross em out and put a K". "King of the Hill" is a direct response to "No Rest for the Wicked".
In response, Cypress Hill recorded the track "Ice Cube Killa". The track features the same beat as "King of the Hill" and was never officially released on an album. In the song, Cypress Hill venomously attacks Ice Cube as well as Mack 10, and expresses that they were ready and willing to end the feud with physical violence instead of words. Even due to his affiliation with Westside Connection, WC did not participate in the feud, due to his friendship with members of Cypress Hill.
In 1997, B-Real and Ice Cube were invited to a late night talk show in order to reconcile their differences for the benefit of the hip hop community, and the feud thus ended. Ice Cube and B-Real worked together later that year as guest features on the track "Men of Steel" for the soundtrack of Shaquille O'Neal's film Steel. B-Real and Cube even featured as guests in Warren G's double "Get U Down" which also featured Snoop Dogg.

well I'm not completely sure,


But that photo of Ice Cube sure looks like the work of this man.

He is one of the hottest photographers around, hell they even use his name when talking about his work.

The ________ look.

I mean I take some photos and play with Photoshop, but to get to his level it would be all up hill for me.

Thanks for your patience while I sifted through what seemed the entire body of Dave Hill's work to find this particularl image! Razz emoticon I even found other photos from the same shoot, but took a while to get to this one...though had I only thought to spend more time on the man's website than on GIS it would have been easy!

He appears to be the acknowlged master of on-location lighting - particularly something called the "ring light" - and "his unique post processing look" which I guess could be summed up as making a photograph look as if it was a photo-realist painting.

Fun tag! I'll get the next one up in the morning...

While looking for Hill I at first thought I might be searching for this photographer. Certain photos of his - Eminem and 50 Cent images come to mind - have a bit of the "look" we were looking for. But I think he has more range.

This guy's been a major influence on hip-hop cover art since 1996, and his love of the genre - plus strong word of mouth within the community - has found him photoraphing everyone from to Aaliya to Young Jeezy.

Spend time on his website when you find him. There are treats to be had.

ok,


The lads wore these suits and covered the song QuipMC used in her last tag on their first album.

It was written by Gerry Goffin and Carol King and was done by The Cookies in 1961, by the "lads" in 1963 and Carol herself released it in 1980.

Speaking of the Beatles, these guys opened for them on a few dates.

They were discovered and managed by Brian Epstein, and reportedly John Lennon gave them the unique spelling of their name, which was a riff on the meaning of their original name.

They had two "Top 20" hits in '66, the first of which was co-written by Paul Simon.

(We could probably play for days just on bands who did early songs by Carole King and Paul Simon.) 8)

But they're so darn cute when they're young!

This movie title featured in one of my favorite double-bill movie theater reader boards of all time. I so wish I'd taken a photo.

Since the movie with top billing was this one, the board read:

ok,


Anthony Hopkins starred in a 1999 movie (with Cuba Gooding, Jr.) and played a character similar to the one Sigourney Weaver played in the last tag.

The movie was inspired by a 1992 novel that won the Turner Tomorrow Fellowship Award.

As usual, I was wildly overthinking the search terms I would need to find this image.

The movie was "Instinct", the book "Ishmael", but it took me a long time to simplify my search down to just "ishmael cage."
