25 the boys of summer


i got to thinking the other day about all the boys i used to madly love. the famous names and faces that my paperdolls wound up with and whom i was always marrying in my silly head. most girls do this and i'm pretty sure guys do too (sans the paperdolls). and i began wondering if there is any insight to found here- in these people we never know yet choose to adore from afar.

i thought and i thought and i thought. and then i looked at eugene. really looked at him. and there he was. an amalgam of all the boys i have ever dated had they been raised in the gulag, capable of growing a mustache, and denied access to mcdonald's, banana republic and modern american dentistry. analyze that.

one of my favorite lyrics comes from a springsteen song. "those romantic young boys/ all they ever want to do is fight."

when i look at the love of your life, well, that's what comes to mind.

oline said...

my love of the moment. they come and go rather a lot. but that's not to say i won't be sorely tempted to throw myself into the tour bus come sunday night. if only his last name weren't so unfortunate we could share a long, debaucherous life.

Linda said...

I'm dumb. Who is the one on the far right?

oline said...

you are in no way dumb. that would be one of the more obscure loves of my life- mister matthew modine. i had a major memphis belle phase once upon a time.

Linda said...

now, onto the latest object of your affection. Is that a rainbow band around his arm?

oline said...

do believe so. which must be his way of letting us know he'd be S-friendly. and that's really all i ask.

and in my looking for insight i've very nearly concluded that i've dated the real life incarnation of all the original dream boys except zack morris. which makes me rather sad.

Tell me that I am the Charlie Sheen! Just look at my blogger profile. Fo Realz!

oline said...

in the famous words of britney murphy: i'll never tell...

Clark Price said...

You responded with the quickness!
Bee tee dub, do you remember when Bill would tell his story of how he used to egg MPG's house in Cali?

No Fair on the not telling! This is gonna drive me crazy.

oline said...

i don't remember much about bill other than him glowering on the fringes of parties and occasionally chiming angrily in. maybe he was the start of everyone getting all angry. stupid bill.

Clark Price said...

Now that you mention it, maybe he was the start of all the anger. Ho-Hum!
I certainly can't be the Matthew Modine! I just Can't.
I just have to be the Charlie! I don't know why I care so much. Nobody is cooler than Charlie Sheen, and I will always think that I am the coolest. Hahaha.

oline said...

nobody's cooler than charlie sheen?

one word.

eugene.

Clark Price said...

Now listen here missy. You can't compare a Musician to a Movie Star. Now Eugene's movie career is very short, but robust. Charlie's movie career is very long and has withstood the test of time. For goodness sake, he is Topper Harley, Richard Brewer, and Rick "Wild Thing" Vaughn. Those are just a few of his notable achievements. All I gotta say, is that during my day, there is nobody I would rather call and reminisce with than Charlie "Mutha Effing" Sheen. No matter what I do, CMFS has always done worse. I would wrestle a diseased bear for Charlie. He would then be endeared to me for life and would never leave my side. If I did the same for Mr. Eugene he would just traipse off and leave me shoe-less as is his wont in his gypsy ways.

oline said...

No matter what I do, CMFS has always done worse.

i absolutely without a doubt knew that was at the root of your thinking.

and would we really say that men at work has withstood the test of time?

Meggie said...

Didn't Charlie Sheen get accused of molesting small children? Does anyone want to be associated with a child molester? Other than Macauley Caulkin who absolutely adores Michael Jackson for some reason...

oline said...

i think there were some embittered ex-wife revelations to the effect of kiddie porn, but primarily he just affiliates with prostitutes. which is way more socially acceptable.

Clark Price said...

Charlie Sheen doing Men at Work just shows how he will stand by your side. He was in a movie with that his brother wrote and directed. Even though he knew it had to be a terrible movie. Red Dawn has certainly withstood the test of time.

I'm not even going to touch the molestation statement. Mainly, because it hits close to home in my family.

oline said...

oh, honey. that killed the convo!

but... speaking of families and to bring us back to the sheen/estevez clan, i would like to applaud emilio for his improvement during the 15 year span between men at work and bobby. he came quite a long, long way.

Linda said...

So who has the real last name? Sheen or Estevez? There are two Sheen's, but that sure does make Estevez seem random.

And Clark, I think your celebrity equivalent is Caro's unmentioned crush: Drew Carey.

oline said...

way to spill the beans, lindear.

and two sheens make an estevez.

Linda said...

I don't understand your mathey-math talk. Is estevez their real name?

Clark Price said...

First off, Estevez is the real last name. Sheen is a very cool name. When I was younger, I wanted my name to be Mark Alan Chine just so I could go by M.A. Chine. Nerdy, I know.

Yeah, being Drew Carey is great too. I am now satisfied.

Linda said...

Did I say Drew Carey? I think maybe I meant "guy on the couch" from Half Baked. Caro did go through a pothead-comic-loving phase a few year ago.

Linda said...

to clarify: the comics being the potheads, not Caro.

oline said...

you're spilling all my beans, lindear! first drew carey and now my potheads days. for shame!
