When I was ten, my mom thought I looked like Leo DiCaprio in This Boy's Life.

(Not true, by the way)

Only one I've ever gotten was Luke Wilson by 3 people in past decade. I don't look like him though. Maybe something in the jaw line but that's about it.

It doesn't happen often, and only one of these people counts as a real "celebrity" but...

Norman Blake from Teenage Fanclub (when I was way younger and had way more hair)

Anthony Hopkins (for whatever it's worth, this was told to me by a Taiwanese person in a rural town)

Renard/Victor Zokas, the Russian villain in that recent Bond film played by the actor Robert Carlyle (or so says a nice-looking woman who works at a fashion magazine)

I don't think I look a damn thing like any of these people.

Do you find this has died off since he admitted his jerk-off indiscretions?

Anyway, I have to regularly check if the guy from Viktor and Rolf who looks like me still looks like me, and which of us is in better shape.

I'm still recovering from my Jan Ulrich-style "winter training" so I guess it'll be a while till I'm that lean again.

in the love line thread, jimmy spako wrote:here's one for you, true story.
i've left out names & places.

i came home today to find the following letter in my mailbox, addressed to my full name.
it's handwritten in german on a single page of stationary.

here's my translation:

a girl i have never met before wrote:hello,
my name is ----- -----. i'm 22 years old & live in (part of my city).

i'm looking for a person. i think that i saw you once quite some time ago. you look like an american actor named peter firth (captain andrew brynner from the movie "the chill factor").

i would like to get to know you better.

even if you are not peter firth, the actor, if you only look a little like him, that'd be enough for me.

maybe we could get to know one another better sometime.
please write me back!
i'm waiting for an answer from you!

(full name & address)


i google image searched this peter firth. i don't think i look much like him at all. also he is twenty one years older than me. so i don't know whether to feel very very slightly insulted or whether to feel very very slightly flattered or whether to have someone check for priors, send the bunny to her aunt & uncle in the country, you know, take precautions.

i hope this chick doesn't shoot ronald reagan.
or ron reagan jr.
i'd have a hard time dealing with something like that.

i tried to google this person & may have found her facebook profile.
i don't think it's a prank.

this is not a love line matter, but i thought i would appreciate your take on it.

yours,

"not even peter firth (captain andrew brynner from the movie the chill factor) in d."

Yeah, maybe less. It wasn't happening super often, and usually just from whoever I was dating at the time or their female friends. When I would say, "Oh god, really?" it was usually met with "What? I think he's sexy." So, um, yeah. There's that I guess. Some women have a Louis CK type, and evidently that's my in.

Side note: as recent as a couple of weeks ago I was noticing a lot of the following listed under women's profiles - LIKES: "Louis CK (still)"

I get Mark Wahlberg a lot. So much that I've started doing an impersonation of him. I scowl incredulously, put on a lisp, and complain about the stupidest shit I can think of, like, "how come most restaurants don't have Dr. Pepper? It's stupid, everybody loves it, I don't understand what the problem is. Just buy Dr. Pepper."

Don't know whether this should make me horrified or hopeful!

I have to deal with three different people who do not know each other and tell me that I look like that rapper. I never had shaved hair or that long beard, so you know why they say it. They are the typical people who give you talks about health and give you spy bracelets that measure the steps you take. They are able to talk about health from an almost paternal position. It is a privilege that gives them their location in the body mass index media. They may not have taken a great miscellany of psychiatric pills that have fucked their hormonal system for life by encysting glands like the pituitary and the adrenal glands, but they are sure that my obesity is voluntary or a matter of style, like that of Action Bronson. I also know them as friends.

You may think that there is nothing weird about vice magazine until your friends compare you to some pink musical press icon which is the fattest of all the whole magazine.

Fuck Vice.

In mid to late 90s, I was confused for Star Crunch from Man or Astro-man a couple of times before their shows. Hair, glasses and short, I suppose.
