"She said it was a grief haircut, not a 'Grease' haircut."

A correction in the NYT on an article titled "St. Vincent, an Experimenter in Music and in Makeup." The originally botched sentence is: "I got an unfortunate grief haircut over the holidays that I like to call 'Audrey Hepburn with an anger problem.'" I guess the transcriber was picturing this:



Now does that look like Audrey Hepburn with an anger problem?

Why is Eliza Doolittle holding a pistol?

That would be an interesting ending to My Fair Lady. "Just you wait, Henry Higgins!" *pop*pop*pop*

In case anyone cares, I shave my manly underarms and I maintain a selection of underarm deodorant to keep things interesting.

Hmmmmm, let's take a look: (1) Brut; (2) Old Spice Classic; (3) Old Spice Fiji; (4) Axe Apollo; (5) Axe Essence; and (6) Stetson.

I smell nice.

All of my underarm deodorant is lower in the middle and higher at the ends.

I think that might be from the pullups.

The fabulous Stockard Channing. One of my faves.

The Audrey Hepburn haircut is the one she got in Rome in "Roman Holiday." That was a great scene.

May one get a degree in facialism? Is facialist job security threatened by robots, which likely will be able to detect subdermal zit pits undetectable by humans days before zit eruption?

Stockard is a very unfortunate name for a woman.

David, have you ever seen "The Big Bus"?. Channing appears in it, and while not a great movie, it's still funny.

If she was angry she woulda brought out her BIG gun.
I don't even duck for .32's.

Some 'facialists' are men.

Or so I have seen.

I am Laslo.

I like St. Vincent. She's almost like a female David Bowie, which I know is a sexist comment to make.

Stockard Channing was so too old in Grease, but she was so fabulous in it you almost didn't notice.

If you are in California, you probably need to take a written test, pay a fee and get an annual license.

She looks like a 60s Batman villain. (The one with the gun.)
