Shark Week Is Coming……
If you can remember, back in January I did a post on Hollywood lookalikes http://welcometosandyland.wordpress.com/2014/01/14/doppelgangers/. Well, I’m back with a crap-ton more.
Can you see the similarities?
Let’s start with a little Hollywood royalty, shall me. Mr. Brad Pitt:
and then we move on to Brad Rowe:
I mean, it’s kinda perfect right? Same first name, one syllable last names, both actors…both like to show their armpits.
A few years ago I was watching Resident Evil: Extinction and noticed that Dominque Swain was in it, which was weird because I hadn’t seen her name in the credits anywhere. Once I checked out the IMDB details I found out it wasn’t her:
The actress is named Spencer Locke (which is a very cool name, BTW):
When Brad Renfro was a youngin’ he looked exactly like Ethan Hawke:
So, my friend Jaime has a huge crush on Jensen Ackles from the show Supernatural – which I have never watched because I’m too much of a big baby – and for the lonnnngest time I knew I had seen him in something else but none of his credits were recognizable to me.
Then one day it clicked: He looked just like Sasha Mitchell from Step-by-Step (am I totally aging myself with these old school shows and movies??). Sasha Mitchell was fine. Good taste Jaime.
Have you ever wondered what would happen if Leonardo DiCaprio and Macauley Culkin had a love child? Wonder no longer:
Anyone know who this guy is?
If you guessed Will Ferrell you’re wrong! That’s Chad Smith from the Red Hot Chili Peppers. CAH-RAY-ZEE!
If Salma Hayek:
Had a love child…..you’d get Paz Vega:
AND if Ian Somerhalder:
For the longest time I would (and sometimes still do) confuse Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger and Kim Kardashian…..at least Nicole can sing:
A few years ago Big Brother had a contestant named Cassi Colvin who looks identical to Olivia Wilde (lucky bitches):
Actress Kathryn Hahn had a small part in The Holiday – for a while I thought Ana Gasteyer had gone back in time.
But also, the more I look at her, Kathryn Hahn also sorta looks like Idina Menzel (or, according to John Travolta, Adele Dazeem):
Earlier this year an actress/model by the name of Lili Simmons had a few guests appearances on Hawaii Five-0.
Lili resembles Erika Christensen:
Bianca Kajlich and Ivana Milicevic could pass as sisters (if not for each other):
And remember when Cameron Diaz had brown hair?
She and Helena Christensen could have played the same person:
And speaking of playing the same person…..Leighton Meester and Minka Kelly look SO much alike they were cast in a movie together where one tries to become the other (The Roommate):
Going back to my friend Jaime….she is a huge Harry Potter fan and yelled at me a while back when, being a smartass, I referred to Harry Potter as a Hobbit (jokingly saying that Daniel Radcliffe and Elijah Wood are one and the same)
You wanna know what would happen if Stephen Macht (the dad from the Monster Squad) and Peter Coyote had a love child? Let’s have a look:
Remember when Tom Cruise was young and hot? (Okay, he’s still kinda hot….CRAZY, but hot)
Two actresses whose looks are so ridiculously uncanny I can barely stand it are Ellen Page and Linda Cardellini (even their voices sound the same). You be the judge of their looks:
Aging myself again….remember Sarah Rose Karr, the little girl from Kindergarten Cop and Beethoven?
This one honestly baffles me….HOW IS THIS NOT THE SAME PERSON????? Check out Danielle Panabaker:
If you’ve ever seen anything with the incredibly talented John Savage you might compare him (younger days or now) to Joel Edgarton:
And lastly, but certainly not least….From this year’s Big Brother cast, Cody:
You KNOW Kelly Preston just crapped her pants and said WTF??????
When I was reeaaally little my mom bought me The Rainbow Connection record from The Muppet Movie.
I loved the song so much and I listened to that record all the time. The opposite side of the little 45 LP was Rowlf the Dog (plinking away on his piano) and Kermit belting out “I Hope Something Better Comes Along” – which, honestly, didn’t get as much play as The Rainbow Connection. But, I loved the record in its entirety.
Then one day the worst thing happened. My brother, for whatever reason he had, threw the record (I don’t remember if he was using it as a Frisbee or if he was tossing it to someone)…I watched it fly across the living room and I prepared myself for the inevitable….but the record landing safely. *Whew* ………………………………………………………………………………………
Then…..my Uncle Brian – who happened to be visiting – rocked in the rocking chair he was sitting in – and which the record had landed underneath of….cracking it right in half.
……and breaking my wee little heart at the same time. I’m pretty sure I cried. Because I cried about everything back then (I still cry about everything).
Thankfully for iTunes and YouTube I’ve been able to reintroduce The Rainbow Connection into my life over the years but I will never forget the day the music died…..for me.
Oh yes – There are a few people in my life who I feel this way about. And not just family or the “other half”, but specific people who have just become a part of me. Those few who I can’t imagine my life without because they’ve just always been there and they make me happy. Those people who are really just love.
Shark Week will be arriving August 10th….
And I NEEDS THIS:
This swimsuit is awesome!! I really want it. (I’ll take the model’s body too, if that’s included!)
This fantastic beach wear is made by Bad Aby Designs (http://www.badabydesigns.com/) and caught my eye a while ago. It’s only $120 – which isn’t that bad for a custom design (and unique!) item.
Ahh…the fun of summer.
Thank you to everyone who posted here or private messaged me trying to help me locate the name of the singer from my last post. Saturday morning I awoke to bazillion messages with different names, websites and potential artists – all of which were wrong but I appreciate the effort, regardless.
I spent another good portion of Saturday morning chatting with Jesse hoping she would remember. Jesse has the worst memory of anyone I know and our conversation went something like this:
Me: “Remember back in the day when I had that mixed tape with the Mandy Moore song I used to belt out when we’d go on our road trips?”
Jesse: “Yes. Vaguely.”
Me: “Well the song was on that tape. We both liked it. The guy was cute.”
Me: “I’m leaning more to his name being Craig rather than David.”
Jesse: “And it’s not Craig David?”
Me: “Nope. It might not be Craig.”
Jesse: “You suck!”
The more I thought about it the more I leaned toward his name being Craig. And I was convinced he was Canadian and I was certain this damn song had been in the top 30 – although searching years of archives from Much Music and the like turned.up.nothing!
Then last night I finally got around to searching “Canadian Singer Craig” and BAM! There he was.
Craig Smart. (Although this video credits also his old group D-Cru – I don’t recollect that – but at least I had his name.) AND this video was totally a top 10 hit back in the day. He’s not as cute as I remember but, aside from that ridiculous “mustache” he’s pretty adorable (I think he reminded me of my ex boyfriend back then, maybe that was part of the appeal.); and his eyes are piercingly blue. And the song is pretty.
So, there you go….my question has been answered. Thank you all for your assistance. And if you want a really good chuckle check out the comments underneath the video.
Okay guys, I need some help. It’s pretty bad that I’m resorting to WordPress looking for the answer to a song/music question because I normally take pride in knowing everything. But I’m dire need tonight.
Okay, so there’s a song that came out a while back. I’m not sure when exactly, initially I was thinking 1999-ish but now I’m leaning more to 2000-2001 – but even that could be wrong. But it’s somewhere in that vicinity. I know I had it on a mixed tape after Mandy Moore’s Candy (and that came out in ’99). I’m sure that doesn’t help you.
Anyway, the singer was a black man with light eyes. I’m thinking blue but they could have been green or hazel. He was striking. Gorgeous (at least he was to me back then).
The song was R&B-y and it was a love song of sorts – kind of sad, if I recall correctly.
I thought the singer might be Canadian but, listen, I’ve just spent the last hour and a half searching everything I can think of and looking thru records from Much Music, MTV, the Junos, the Grammys, YouTube, Googling everything I can freakin’ imagine to come up with this damn song or singer.
Something tells me his name may have been David but it’s not Craig David. And to be honest, his name may not have been David…I’m reaching here.
Sooooooo……I would appreciate any ideas, speculations, names for good measure. Puh-leese help me.
Thanks in advance for hopefully saving my sanity.
