Dress To The 10s : The Modern Loverboy

Valentine’s Day is coming up. You have a cultural obligation to not shit the bed with the human you date. That means do the right thing like Spike Lee. That doesn’t mean your date wants to go to a Knicks game (the Knicks players don’t even want to go to a Knicks game).

Mel Gibson in the 80’s easily makes the “Roo Export To The Yanks” highlight reel. RIP Steve Erwin. RIP Heath Ledger. They get the nod. Ledger should get a statue in the real Gotham City, if that was a thing. Sia, Kylie Minouge, Natasha Beddingfield, Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman, they all make the roster. The Hemsworths and Cate Blanchett have to be on the list. Baz Luhrmann, off this interview alone makes it. The 10 minute scene on the beach of “Romeo + Juliet” alone should see him…
