I had this post all planned out for yesterday. January 4 is the anniversary of the death of my sainted African brother Phil Lynott. Phil was the lead singer of Thin Lizzy, one of my very favorite bands ever. I was going to tell you about how he died in 1986, and how I remember hearing about it on the radio that day. Then I was going to upload this kickin video of them singing Still In Love With You, live in concert in 1975, which he dedicated to his beloved mother. You would have been bawling. But I almost threw my computer out the window trying to download the video plugin. It didn’t work. You’re going to have to be content with linkage:
My excellent friend Wenderina just turned me onto a site called Celebrity Lookalike, or something like that. You can upload your picture and it’ll tell you who you look like. I was all excited to see Irene Cara because absolutely everyone tells me how I look like her. I was also hoping against hope that they’d come up with Halle Berry or something. You know who they said I look like? Kim Basinger. And Mandy Moore. Riiiiight.
There have been a lot of my fellow refugees from another unmentionable site washing up on shore here. I’ve also made a few new friends in the last couple of months. Some of these guys are novice bloggers and for some reason they’ve been asking me for blogging advice. I don’t know if I can help them with that. I can point my faithful readers in their direction though. So I’ve decided to do a new feature here at Deadpan where I reciprocify some of my excellent friends. Be a good netizen and take a look. (I should warn you that I may get distracted by something shiny and forget all about my new feature, but it’s the thought that counts).
First, my new friend and fan Jenna, your guide to the Vapid Culture universe. She’s also a fellow recovering law student. She rocks.
I was also pleasantly surprised to find Deb, a.k.a. The Rewriter, here on WordPress. And she’s published too! Yay Deb!
Finally (for now), The View From Fish In A Barrel by my most excellent friend Quill Gordon. That’s not his real name. But he is one of the Funniest People Alive, so please visit him (and his friend Eugene).
That’s it for now. I have to plan for Orlando’s birfday next week. Peace out.
