Sir Archy alert.

Our favorite commenter ghost — "dead these 250 Years and more" — has made an appearance in yesterday's "Virtuous vanilla" post.

Ya gotta luv the guy.

Hmm. Given the paucity of comments on this thread, it would seem Ann has overestimated Sir Archy's popularity as an Althouse cult figure.

The fellow is very talented, that's for sure.

Ann Althouse said...

No, jealous fatty fruitbat. Anyone commenting would tend to comment at the other post.

Maxine Weiss said...

The big question is who's gonna do Althouse's makeup when she does get that coveted Fox News gig?

Is Althouse familiar with the special Airbrush makeup for HDTV ??

I'm willing to do it, but I charge heavily.

Fox should pick up the cost, though.

Lawyers don't book, or represent themselves, in the TV industry.

That's not how it works, as Althouse so rudely found out with the C-Span debacle.

If she'd had representation it would have gone differently. I'll take 40 %, so I doubt Althouse could afford me.

Son of Diomed and Castianira, he had much potential,
but, aside from squiring many lovely ladies,
Sir Archy eventually found himself nonessential.
Retired for lack of competition, Sir Archy sharpened his wit and his skill,
And now graces Ann’s paddock after these 250 Years, and still,
he pleases us all with his panache and his verve,
well, all but Veronica, who has read his oeuvre,
and will cease to be his girl,
if he doesn’t stop lying,
for Archy’s a colonialist, a Virginian to boot,
and of this there’s no denying.

You know, sometimes this place is like kindergarten on acid.

I would choose a medium grey eyeliner. Maybe a smokey grey. Grey looks fantastic with blue eyes. She shouldn't be using black. And, you have to line the whole eye, even the inner corners. Then go over it with a Q-tip and smudge smudge smudge. Then go over all that with a clean (small) brush , and blend some more !

You do know you never use a red lipstick for HDTV.... It reads black, or fuscia---much too harsh. Use a medium brown pencil, blend blend blend with a good brush, and go over that with clear gloss.

There's a reason why my makeup artistry is much in demand throughout this town.

This is your bible right here:

That's your romantic Valentine's Makeup. As you can see, she never uses black--not for the liner, and not for the mascara. And she never uses red, either. Pink lipstick, and orange blush---which reads gold on camera, if blended well enough. Everything she does, she does with brushes.

It sounds like some of Maxine's make-up clients must be amateur drag queens.

I haven't heard of such ridiculous "techniques" since being backstage and eavesdropping on the trannies at the Dreamgirls Revue at Club Rage in West Hollywood.

Not so!

Sir Archy's comments on religious iconography and hidden erotic innuendo in Flemish altarpieces have far more entertainment value than Maxine's makeup tips.

jealous fatty fruit bat?

I like it.

And you're the five year old.

Maxine Weiss said...

Well, I must be doing something right, because I've never spent a Saturday Night without a date, and I'm not spending Valentine's alone, either.

Either take the necessary steps and revel in success, or don't and suffer the consequences.

Ooh, that's good. It's from the "no I'm not but you are" school of sharp retort.

No it is from we are the adults and you are the five year old who needs Ritalin retort.

Sir Archy's comments are so erudite that they defy commentary. They can stand alone.

Althouse said the same thing about Sippican Cottage---called him "our favorite commenter" and we know how that ended up.

When Althouse likes you , it's the kiss of death.

There was a time when Althouse just loved both 'Quixxo' and 'Mary' too.

Once you are highlighted, and lauded, by Althouse, you know your days are numbered around here.

Dude -- get a grip.

Every time you whine about how fstop is picking on you, you look even sillier than before.

Grow a thick skin already.

"lanolin" is fat. I was just translating.

Sir Archy said...

To the Readers:—

Altho', as a Ghost, it seems to have pleas'd God to grant me an Infinitude of Time, the same cannot be said of the Gentleman whose Brain I now haunt.  The press of another's Time & Business thus prevents Me from thanking individually those among You who have so graciously favor'd me with your Compliments.  That I cannot forbear to offer to both You and to Professor Althouse my highest Gratitude need hardly be said.

I am most sensible of the Need to live up to the Expectations the Honour of your Approbation brings.  You may thus rest assur'd that I shall endeavour to entertain & perhaps enlighten the Publick with even greater Zeal than I have done heretofore; and that I shall do my Best to eschew Vulgarity, Cant & Tedium in Everything I may place before You.

Your most humble & obt. Servant,

Sir Archy

Dude,
I care not what one thinks of my opinions. I do not have to take personal insults. That is typical radical, self esteem BS. He insults and he is cool. I refuse to take it and I am silly?

Dude get a clue; I don’t take shit, I ain’t in the shit business.
