Yes, I am partially Irish and yes I enjoy drinking. So here’s a little playlist for your St. Patty’s Day weekend.
Anyone can have a mugshot taken but it takes mad skills to take a hot one. Especially since someone probably just pulled your hammered ass off of the ground.
Earlier this year Nic Cage was arrested for being drunk and disorderly in New Orleans (drunk in New Orleans?, no way!). Apparently if you ask cops to arrest you they will oblige. I thought what a good mugshot. It’s sexy and he even thought to close his eyes. That way you can try to deny your state of mind later. Unless, they have a video, oops.
This reminded me of the super hot mugshot of Burn Notice star Jeffrey Donovan last year. That one was for a DUI in Miami (where they shoot the show). This photo is not just dead sexy for a mugshot. It’s just hot in general. Plus he may have had a cold. What do most of us look like when we are drunkenly nursing a cold?
I started thinking that there must be a lot of these out there but when you read about celeb mugshots it’s usually just that same old photo of Nick Nolte looking goofy. Let’s focus on the positive here people.
Kiefer Sutherland – drunk driving. This was an odd decision.
50 Cent – felony drug charges. He had his girl hide his fcoke in her panties. Wait, you mean that’s not a good plan?
Aidan Quinn – drunk driving
Al Pacino – concealed weapon (sounds like he may have been in a gang)
David Bowie – possesion of pot (they must have got him on a low key day for it not to have been cocaine)
Chace Crawford – possession of weed
Chris Tucker – speeding and then trying to elude the cops when they caught him
Kurt Cobain – trespassing/possession
Macauley Culkin – possesion of pot, Xanax, prescription sleeping pills
Matt Dillon – speeding
Donnie Wahlberg – arson. He lit a fire in a hotel room. So that’s how the New Kids on the Block partied.
Carmen Electra – fighting with Dennis Rodman
Foxy Brown – stealing makeup & then putting it on in the store’s bathroom
Edward Furlong – liberating lobsters while drunk
Billie Joe Armstrong – drunk driving
Mick Jagger – possession of narcotics
Shia LaBeouf – loitering at Walgreens (while drunk)
Lil Kim – possession of grass
Lindsay Lohan – It was difficult to choose just one. From when she served an hour and a half sentence
Michelle Rodriguez – breaking probation (by not doing community service and drinking)
Matthew McConaughey – possession of pot. Police were called due to a noise complaint. They found him loudly playing bongos, naked, while high.
Jim Morrison – public drunkeness at a football game. He was insulting football players, fuck yeah. Public obscenity, disturbing the peace and resisting arrest, as recreated in the movie The Doors.
Ozzy Osbourne – public intoxication. Surely they jest.
Keanu Reeves – drunk driving
Christian Slater – trying to take a gun on a plane in his suitcase
Vince Vaughn – bar fight
Woody Harrelson – dancing in the street drunk
Despite the fact that I’m not that old (27 at the end of the month) I’ve seen a lot of change on the internet. My household got the net when I was in Jr. High. I was the first child in my school who used it. Some of the well off kids’ parents had it but they wouldn’t let them use their expensive computers. Back then the net was more information based instead of socially based. Although I always had a hard time finding any factoid I needed, funny considering what I do now. Initially I (naively) thought that chat rooms would be a cool way of talking to people all over the world. Turns out they were mainly for picking people up.
So I contributed to a forum or two and some newsgroups. This was all well and good but it was very plain to see that women were often under represented, then insulted when they spoke up. In a forum of malcontents I hung out in men habitually bitched about their love lives and in a Seinfeld sort of way always had “good reasons” for it. If a woman spoke up and said the same thing the men turned on her saying “She had it easy and should be able to get any guy she wanted easily if she wasn’t “fat and/or ugly”. And what were we women doing hanging around here anyway when we should be off tanning, cleaning or cooking?
I think this is why I’ve gotten into reading a number fashion blogs lately. I enjoy the blogs featuring women who feel like it lets them express themselves in a way that they weren’t able to before. A lot of them preface their site with “I know I’m fat, ugly, short, poor, ____ (insert imagined imperfection here)” but then they post what they want anyway. (FYI: I’m guilty of this too). That might sound harsh but those are the ones I prefer. The girls who are more in the vein of “Now I’m off to party with a billionaire” don’t forge a real connection. I know that there are other types of female run blogs but they don’t speak to me as I don’t cook or have children.
On the surface it seems silly to be inspired by someone modeling their shoes until you think about it.
