Anyone remember that song from circa 1973? By Dr. Hook, I think. Well apparently anyone can get their picture on the cover of the Rolling Stone:

Right. Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show.

Wasn't a babbler recently chastised for fantasizing about those two out loud? Apparently the editors of Rolling Stone wouldn't do well on babble.

I've got a friend from way back who likes to break out into that song at inappropriate moments, like, sitting in a restaurant, or waiting in a movie line or something. He just belts it out, all squinty-eyed and emotional--totally rockstar-quality performance.

What a hoot. I love that song a lot because of him. And he's also the reason that I know all the words!

As the parent of two girls, aged eleven and eight, I'm used to seeing a lot of Mary Kate and Ashley. But, I still don't think I'm ready to deal with the idea of them being "America's favourite fantasy". :eeeeewwwwww:

Wow.

I just followed that link. I had assumed it was gonna be some site where you could get your own photo duped up like the RS cover.

Wow.

That's just not right. They're not even rock stars.

That's OK. The Stone hasn't been a proper rock magazine in years.

A Salon writer a few months back wrote an ingenious interpretation of the creepy male fantasy about twins:

quote:
Despite their claims, I'm not convinced men are even into three-ways, or lesbians, for that matter. What they are into is two women working together in a joint effort to bring them pleasure. It is a scenario that deems the sexual relationship between the two women irrelevant; hence, the acceptability of the sister-sister-guy fantasy. The three-way scenario is that much more heavenly when the two women are indistinguishable from one another, their lack of identity being the ultimate in low-maintenance.

Oh well, at least they have a more favourable view of filming in Canada than Robert Duvall...

quote:
Mary-Kate and Ashley: "We are having a great time in Toronto, working on our upcoming feature film, 'New York Minute.' Our days have been super-busy, but we somehow managed to fit in some time to check out the Rolling Stones in concert. It was amazing!"

BTW, other than "Canadian Bacon", can anyone think of an American feature film where Toronto gets to be Toronto (and not New York or Chicago or Philadelphia)?

A guess: Bruce Willis in that movie where he's a hitman - ??? Can't recall the name.

I don't know that we can assume those two are stupid.

But I was surprised by the cover, too. It is true, however, that Strolling Bone hasn't been about Rock and Roll for quite some time.

You're thinking of The Whole Nine Yards, which was set in Montreal. As was The Score. And the original The Fly (but not the Cronenberg remake).

I think they might actually be quite savvy. They've created a whole empire just out of their identity, which may or may not be their own doing, but it sure does seem like they're reaping the benefit of it in a big way.

I mean, there's the website, a magazine, movies, and action figures, to name just the stuff I know about as a 25 year old woman. I'm sure Scott's daughters could fill us in on anything I've missed.

Wow, I had no idea Bruce Willis was in two hitman movies set in Canada. You learn something every day.

Dang! This thread just reminded me that 20+ years ago a co-worker and I made up alternative job-related lyrics to this tune. All I remember now, though is:

"We've got all kinds of fat-assed, no-neck foremen,
Who make us do anything they say.
We've got a genuine apprenticeship program
To teach us a better way."
