Fun With Spackle


A play called Legends is in town and got me to wondering how much glue it takes to hold up the posters and how much is required for the stars themselves.

Also, when did Linda Evans start looking like Sarah Jessica Parker?

Good Lord; it is Sarah Jessica Evans. It's amazing what a lot of money, a scalpel, and a lot of spackle can do ...

chelene said...

Dale, that picture is airbrushed to within an inch of all our lives!! I feel like my very existence hangs on Linda Evan's Botoxed forehead.

Berry said...

Wow, I don't know how he does it, but that guy looks A LOT like Linda Evans.

mellowlee said...

Looks like a lot of photoshoppin be done to that poster!

Miss Evans looks like a man

PinkFluffySlippers said...

Are you gonna go see it?

Sandra said...

When my daugher saw that poster - she asked me- who were the men? She did not believe they were women. When did Botox and sequins become manly?

Dale said...

It's a little frightening isn't it Beth? We can't blame Yanni for everything or can we?

You've got a lot more depth in one sentence than she can muster through that mask Chelene.

He's a handsome woman isn't he Berry?

You betcha Lee, a lot and then a lot more.

She looka likea man Bluez.

I'm going to sit it out PFSlippers, I'd hate to have any of the scaffolding fall off of their faces and injure me.

The day Linda came out looking like that Sandra! Isn't it something? Joan still sort of resembles a version of herself at least.

Ben said...

I wonder what their combined age is ?

Jill said...

I think they have smoother skin than me, and they are old enuf to be my mothers. Let me wonder for a sec if it's normal!!!

" When did Botox and sequins become manly?"

Sandra, Are you saying I need to change?

I'm almost out of glue.

jin said...

All I can think of is their poor poor significant others...looking at a poster like that, then crawling into bed next to the *ahem* 'real' thing!!!
O M G ! ! !
*shudder*

Damn it...now I have that visual in my head. Excuse me while I go & puke.
:-P

It is amazing what money can do. Some people remain genetically nice looking with good skin. A couple of years ago Jamie Lee Curtis outed Hollywood and their make-up, technology aesthetc procedures, for a popular women's magazine. She allowed herself to be photographed in a bra & t-shirt with no make-up. Wow! Viva la difference!

I understand the need to stage make-up while performing under the lights as I have performed in the past-but what they are doing today is not right.

lulu said...

Why in the world would anyone want that much botox? How do people know they're angry?

Dale said...

I'm not sure if the number has been invented yet Ben.

I think they have had some help Jill.

Justa10CCs - You need to change into something a little more comfortable. And less sticky.

Did you have to mention crawling into bed with them Jin? Oh the dust.

Good for Jamie Lee, Old Lady. The airbrushing and surgery and manipulation is just twisted.

I'm not even sure they're still alive Lulu let alone capable of movement or emotion.

PinkFluffySlippers said...

According to the mighty oracle that is google, Joan is 73 and Linda is 64. Yipes.

Too weird. We were thinking the same thing about Legends. Should I go? That would be the gayest thing to do wouldn't it?

X. Dell said...

I believe the glue nowadays isn't on the face. It's in Photoshop.

Dale said...

I might have guessed older for Linda just based on the Fables of the Reconstruction PFS. If they weren't pulled so tight, they wouldn't have to act so hard would they?

It might be the gayest thing but also the funnest thing to do Jason. You have to go and tell everyone about it.

You're right, it's something else that's in the face X.

Beth said...

I'm always looking for a Yanni-blaming excuse, Dale, so I'll take it!

Chancelucky said...

I thought a legend was someone who'd been in something other than a soap opera, albeit a prime time one?

Oh well, I guess this makes the Big Valley a classic television show.

Saviour Onassis said...

My roommate, who is young but not that young, recently asked "Who is Elizabeth Taylor? She makes jewelry and is friends with Michael Jackson, right?"

Needless to say, this poster (which can be seen on billboards in LA) is completely lost on him. It makes me pine for the days when I was blissfully ignorant myself.

My only question is: Who plays the Tom Cruise role?

Coaster Punchman said...

Well I don't know from Linda Evans, but I've heard from reliable sources that Joan Collins is a real bitch. Does this come as a surprise to anyone?

What is it with bitch women and the name "Joan" anyway?

Old Lady said...

The more I think about it the more I fume. I mean there are things that happen when people get older, all over the body. Skin elasticity sproings, muscle tone, even if one is active gets a little spongey, hair grows where it has never grown before, ears and noses get bigger. They must have sold their souls to the devil. I want my legends to look their freakin' age.

Anonymous said...

fuck those heiffers are still alive???

Dale said...

Excellent Beth, I was hoping someone would Yanni bash or bash Yanni.

Barbara Stanwyck finally hit her stride in all those jeans she got to wear on Big Valley didn't she CL? A classic in the most minor of ways.

That 14 year old looking baby Suri with be playing Tom I think Saviour. I'm so glad to see you! You're a legend in progress.

I bet Joan Cusack is nice but all bets are off for every other one CP.

So do I Old Lady, so do I. Life is so ridicurous sometimes.

Moo! I'm not sure if they're alive or if it's all lighting effects while they're on stage S-M.

Yasamin said...

oh my god its joan collins!!!

those look like male impersonators... are you sure those arent trannies?

Dale said...

Isn't it crazy Yas? They're actually the people they used to be!

Angela said...

My token homosexual male best friend is aching to see this crud. I remember Dynasty, my mom used to watch it. Joan's looking pretty good, but Linda needs a new plastic surgeon.

I hope the show includes impromptu 'old woman-on-old woman' action between those two. That'd be so worth it.

Dale said...

If he's aching, he'd best be getting there before they crumble completely and cancel the rest of the run. It's now up to you to force him to go, report back and then you blogfilter the review. Thank you.

Jill said...

I'm blond, dale, but not that stupid, come on!

Dale said...

I know you're not Jill.

SlayGirl said...

Cat fight action would be seriously funny...wait, stuff might fall off...I'm scared.

Dale said...

Check out the review Slaygirl, it's funnier than the play is I'm sure.
