Hello Norma Jean!

This past Sunday, as a long departure from the book I was reading about the Baltimore ghetto ‘The Corner’, I started reading ‘The Many Lives of Marilyn Monroe’ (Yes I am so metro-sexual aren’t I?). It is a very revealing book analyzing who she was along with stories about her many sexual trysts and mysteries behind her death. The cover photo is a naked Marilyn with a pink scarf in her mouth (This is from her last photo shoot known as ‘The Last Sitting’ which was taken not long before her death). I never saw or heard of this photo shoot before I started reading this book. Well now I hear that this is the exact photo that Lindsay Lohan re-creates in a New York Magazine spread this month. Famed photographer Bert Stern shot the original Marilyn ‘The Last Sitting’ as well as the Lindsay homage.

Here is the link from New York Magazine of Lindsay along with original photos of Marilyn: The New ‘The Last Sitting’. Click on the Slide Show and the Behind the Scenes at the Photo Shoot as well.

Well LiLo in my mind your comeback is complete. :-)

Did you just take our blog out of the PG-13 ratings bracket? I am afraid to click on those links.

The Mountain Cat said...

It is classy and it is published is a major national magazine.

Doc said...

Classy could still get me fired at work... I think I will pass.. LOL!

Leighann said...

I think "LiLo" is disgusting and should be shot in the middle of the street for impersonating Marilyn.

Tink said...

Lindsay Lohan wishes she looked half as good as Marilyn. The fact that someone thought she could pull that off was just sad...

Jahooni said...

i love men that read. i think it's a turn on. but reading this? not so much TMC!

The Mountain Cat said...

Leighann, Don't hold back tell us how you really feel!

Tink, Well it is better that Lindsay did this spread then say Britney Spears!

Jahooooooni, I like to read books on a variety of subjects.

Leighann said...

With the imagination that I have, if I were to go into anymore detail about how I feel, I would traumatize you!

Lindsay Lohan.... Britney Spears? You should be slapped. Hard and often.

And about this whole "metro-sexual" thing....

:) Luv ya!

The Mountain Cat said...

Yeah Leighann don't go into more detail because as a metro-sexual I am pretty sensitive. :-)

Leighann said...

LOL!!

I promise not to hurt you! (yet)

Doc said...

Mt. Cat you are about as "metro" sexual as Jack Palance. About the only "sensitive" thing about you is your 3 ply toilet paper...

The Mountain Cat said...

Leighann, Don't toy with me. The last time a woman told me that I should be slapped hard and often I wound up getting my wallet stolen while I was handcuffed to a bed at the downtown Trenton Best Western. Boy those were some good times. My wild years....

Leighann said...

Did you just give me permission to handcuff you to a bed and steal your wallet?? :)

The Mountain Cat said...

I didn't give the last girl permission! I just have bad luck with women I meet at church I guess.

Doc said...

Mt. Cat - That sounds like that story you told me one time about waking up in a bathtub filled with ice missing your left kidney :o

The Mountain Cat said...

BAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWW!!!
Sorry Shane that wasn't me. But I almost had a similar experience to what happened to John Kruk once if you remember the reference?

Leighann said...

Well I don't go to church, does that help?!

Doc said...

What you were going to take your "ball" and go home ??


Hee Hee!

The Mountain Cat said...

Leighann, I haven't been going but baaleeve me, church woman are better compared to the stories I've been holding back!

Doc, you got the reference!

Leighann said...

Church Shmurch

Doc said...

I got that reference 'cause it was a hell of a lot easier than Bobbysox and Portia.... LOL!

Doc said...

Yeah - I told Vin that he should start going to a Lutheran church...

Isn't that right Sarah ??

(we have a new lurker Vin)

The Mountain Cat said...

Which reminds me. Lets get a show of hands. Who wants me to write another installment of The Adventures of Bobbysox and Portia?

Jay said...

You know the main difference between Lindsay and Marylin?

Marylin was a boozing, pill-popping train wreck who would sleep with anyone who paid a little attention to her.

Lindsay is a boozing, pill-popping train wreck who will sleep with anyone who pays a little attention to her who actually has a little bit of acting talent. Not that she uses that talent, but at least it's there if she ever decides to grow up and use it.

Marylin didn't have any actual talent. People seem to remember her in a very generous way. But really, she was as big a train wreck as LiLo or Brit or any of todays bimbos.

Doc said...

I'll sic Leighann on anyone who raises their hand...

The Mountain Cat said...

LiLo couldn't get a job at BiLo!

Simply Curious said...

I disagree with Jay. I don't see a shred of acting talent coming from that little twat (Lindsay). Marilyn might not have had any actual talent when it came to acting, but she really was absolutely stunning in photographs.

Back in those days, it was uncommon for beautiful women to 'bare all' unlike today. Today's women aren't remembered, warmly or otherwise, because they'll take their clothes off and pose for a nickel or a little bit of publicity. A dime a dozen, so to speak. Also, the posing was done in a much more classy manner, back then.

You have to give props to Hugh Hefner. He still manages to make classy, nude photos and semi nude photos, that get respect all over the world. Everything else is just porn and smut. In my perspective, Marilyn's photos were never porn.

Damn, I'm rambling now. I'll shut up.

The Mountain Cat said...

Thanks Simply Curious for your comment. And I love your outfit.

Leighann said...

Doc, want me to dress up like a clown and attack people? It's a sure fire way to traumatize and mame.

Simply Curious is SPOT ON!

The Mountain Cat said...

Doc, I think with the bad language being used in this comment section I should not worry about posting that random thought I asked you about....LOL

Jahooni said...

i agree simply curious... it would be awfully distastful if you took off those white panties and had your bare ass showing for us all... atleast you keep it modest with the white undies *giggle* ;-)

The Mountain Cat said...

Wait a minute Jahooni & Simply Curious...*closes eyes*.....hold on....*opens eyes*...ahhhhhh, that was nice. Thanks ladies.

Simply Curious said...

Any time.

Jahooni said...

Ditto. ;-)

Micky-T said...

My My My, Can't these comments just get to wandering about????

Love it!

Hey,Doc
Hey,Mountain Cat

I have a dream...........

You schedule a weekly battle in the comment section of things you disagree on!

Then we, your guests vote the winner, or we vote the weener!

The Mountain Cat said...

See I told you Doc! People love it when we bicker.

The Mountain Cat said...

Thanks Micky-T!

Single In The City said...

I CANNOT STAND LINDSAY!! I agree with the comment Leighann made GRRRRRRRRr Damn her for trying to be Marilyn.

Doc said...

So if we are going to have an argument it at least needs to be a valid argument not something stupid ie - more people in Russia watch hockey than the Daytona 500 - if there is a vaild argument than sure... but not stupid stuff. It drives me up the wall

Micky-T said...

That's what I'd imagined Doc. You guys must have a few valid "different opinions"

Doc said...

A few?? Oh you have NO IDEA!

LOL!

The Mama Bear said...

Lindsay LoHo will never be Marilyn - NEVER!!!!

I am amazed that you would read such a book though, that shocks me. I think I need to read that one though....James Dean and Marilyn covered my walls as a teen, and no I am not that OLD!

ZenDenizen said...

MM - gorgeous. LiLo - not so much.
