Re: Wrap Your Minds Around That

I disagree with the notion that jerking off to the dead violates some important principle having to do with the fantasized possibility of actually doing the person being jerked off to. What if one jerked off to pictures of people dead for decades? Is that disrespectful in some sense? Plainly not.

That one is not allowed to masturbate to the dead is settled Unfogged policy, AWB. Your disagreement comes too late.

I saw the Lohan thing earlier today, and all I really have to say is great, great tits.

Well, that and contemporary hotties recreating Monroe shoots (remember Ashley Judd in her movie about Monroe) do serve to show that Monroe really did have a special allure.

In Dan S's original argument, he specifically said that jacking off to the long dead was a violation of "the hope masturbation represents." His examples were masturbating to James Dean, River Phoenix, Marylin Monro and Mary Todd Lincoln.

That said, he's still wrong. He's wrong because he is unwilling to embrace the sadness masturbation represents. Masturbation is always a sad act. And masturbating while grieving for the dead is fundamentally in keeping with the basic mores of the act.

If I may repeat conventional wisdom:

Ashley Judd as Monroe was sexier than any other impersonator (including Lohan) precisely because she had a different body type.

I'm just saying, it's highly unlikely that 95% of one's bodyfat would just happen to settle in a couple of perfectly evenly-sized tits with tiny areolae, and that this would happen to occur to a young woman who progressed from being a child actor to an adult actor in Hollywood, who is not exactly known for her public commitment to natural living. She also has cheekbone implants, which are pretty much universal these days. You can see the outlines of them in any photograph of her that isn't under high studio lighting.

Oh for god's sake, people. I don't see why you feel the need to assume that anyone with breasts of size has fake ones. They don't look fake to me, or disproportionate to her body, and yes, of course women can have different size areolae, and women who haven't yet had children often have rather smallish ones relative to women who have.

102: Most child actors disappear once they become adults. Inevitably some small proportion of them will turn out to have perfectly-formed breasts as adults, in the same way as some small proportion of the general population do. LL could be one of those few, and you notice because she didn't drop off the face of the planet. Nobody cares about the rest. It's a selection effect.

The thing is, no surgery is that good. Implants only work when there's a good chunk of clothing over the top.

I know or have known women (about five, off the top of my head) with roughly the same proportions as LL, so it's not inconceivable to me. I also don't really care all that much; if she did get implants, it's hard to fault her when her career is going to depend entirely on looks.

By contrast, I don't see any evidence of surgery. It seems a pretty objectionable suggestion to assume that she's had implants just because she turned out to have nice breasts.

Yeah, nice tits. I stared at them for so long on GFY the other day that I forgot all about the dress.

Dunno about the fake/real thing though. Whenever I have indulged in nipple comparisons with my friends, it seems to be the case that large breasts have large areolae, small have small. I have a theory that all areolae start off the same size, and then just stretch accordingly.

And what's wrong with wanking? Works for everyone, has no unpleasant physical implications. Or are we supposed to be talking strictly euphemisms, and I've wandered over into slang?

Linsday Lohan would not seem nearly so attractive to many people if we were not constantly being offered more and more Lindsay Lohan-related content. If you put her in with the average group of co-eds going out clubbing, she'd fit right in, from breasts to cheekbones.

She looks gorgeous, but I was looking at them wondering what movie she was promoting with the photo shoot and then realized she doesn't have anything to promote right now, it's just a photo shoot. Which made me feel sad in a swirly fresh-out-of-'rehab', caught-up-in-fame, blinded-by-the-lights, Marilyn-exploitation kind of way, which ultimately makes them inappropriate for wanking I think.

This thread is reminding me of a funny episode wherein two drunk girls in a bar in Charlottesville coined the phrase "going to Richmond" as a euphemism for anal sex. "I mean, sure, the butt is there. It's feasible to have sex there. But there's already a perfectly good vagina that's great for sex. Why go to the butt? It's like going to Richmond."

This makes your email that we "should meet up in Richmond" that much more disturbing, Stanley.

It just looks like a more natural and less forced photo. I don't think it's any more or less slutty than the other. And 'like someone I might actually see' doesn't necessarily seem like a bad thing. Whereas the recreation of the Monroe shoot looks unnatural, and slightly creepy to me.

re: 155

I wasn't holding up the other shot as some amazing example of super-attractiveness and brilliant photography. But, for what it is, some photographer's attempt to deliberately mock up a 'holiday' snap [with the less than natural colour cast, the leg in the background, slightly gauche framing, and facial expression, etc] I think it works better as a piece of quasi-cheesecake than the fake-Monroe stuff which doesn't work either as cheesecake or as a piece of art.

ttaM is just trying too hard to be contrarian. She looks like a very pretty girl dressing up as Marilyn Monroe. Granted I saw a better Marilyn at a party here in January, but Lohan still does pretty well.

(Okay, slide 4 does look a bit cadaverous. But other than that, it's okay. Certainly most of the shoot looks better than that crap in 152.)

Per 49, "rub one out" is the official euphemism, as approved by Winona Ryder.

As for the portraits, you are all nuts: Stern has done her a disservice and she (or the editors) has done Stern a disservice and everyone has jerked with poor Marilyn Monroe. Holding the sun in the palm of his hand Stern couldn't bathe Lohan's face with enough light to blast the shadows from under her eyes. Lohan's face strains from the comparison to Monroe. Lohan lacks the sophisticated whimsy as a model to take advantage of the props. She is not suited to the role. As for Stern I am sure he could achieve the same results with Tara Reid; it is not so hard with a staff of 20, an editorial budget as vast as this one, and a template to follow (let's not forget those lights).

But look at the missed opportunity! With the mistaken emphasis on color in those photos with the goofy chiffon flowers when the woman has skin with that looks like it has the texture of the moon. I am surprised that photographers do not find freckles irresistible, though, then again, magazines do not seem to find freckles irresistible.

In other respects I agree with Ogged's evaluation.

Normally Lindsay Lohan just annoys me, but this makes me feel angry and sad on her behalf. Clearly she thinks that she was selected because some pervy old photographer thinks she's an iconic hottie, but clearly he's hoping for "Lohan: The Last Shoot" here. The fact that he didn't airbrush the crap out of her, as seems standard in fashion/celebrity photography these days, is a big tipoff.

Also, despite the rehab, she continues to be spotted in clubs with a drink in her hand. (I keep track of these things so you all don't have to, and I hope you appreciate the sacrifice.)

When she had that dark brunette hair, her look was much closer to a young Elisabeth Taylor, and I thought that worked rather well for her.

Whereas I've always thought that she looked best with her natural hair color and her natural coloration.

At least she's not orange anymore.

re: 207

My high-school girlfriend had larger breasts, on a more slender frame. I'm pretty sure people looking at photos of her now would automatically assume that they were fake. I don't think those proportions are really as unusual as all that. We're just inured to seeing the fake ones that we've sort of forgotten that in among the wide range of body types out there, there are people who just happen to fit with the body-type that plastic surgeons aim for.*

Yeah, I didn't mean "quite unusual" as a sardonic way of "Oh please, no way they're real." But the combination of bone-skinny and big tits, while it's a possible body type without surgery, is an uncommon one. If you're talking about whether her breasts look big, they do, because on someone built like that you'd generally expect A cups. If you're talking about what size bra she buys, it's probably well within the ordinary range.

214: Common enough body type on the assumption that some mild airbrushing around the hips is going on. Bra size is probably around a 32D.

Upon peering through La Lohan's photo archive at imdb, I have discovered 1) that she's only 21! (eek), 2) that she really looks best with her natural, very pale skin and dark red hair, and 3) that all photos of her are either Sexpot or Naif: her face changes completely when she smiles naturally, and all of the makeup that goes with Sexpot looks really bad on her when she lights up like that. The Naif is much more attractive than the Sexpot, although the Sexpot is probably a more consistantly reliable image (Paris Hilton only has to strike one pose for the rest of her life!).

Yeah, I'm not taking that as a data-point for or against surgery -- I couldn't tell you and don't care much if her tits are real or surgically altered. I was just trying to point out that both sides were being reasonable on the argument about how big her breasts were -- they're big enough to look unusual on her body (not bizarre, but out there on one tail of the bell curve), but not unusually big absolutely.

Random thoughts generated by this thread:

I agree with the Fug girls that Lohan is great (-looking, -acting), and it's a damn shame she's become such a fuck-up. Not surprising, but a shame.

Only a couple of the slides evoke MM in any but the most surfacey way. This isn't surprising, but is disappointing.

I certainly prefer more hips, but yes, the breasts shown in Slide 3 are great, great. A bit heavy, full, etc. I should probably go presidential for this, but my wife's pregnant right now, and her boobs look more or less like this - incredibly hot.

"Rub one out" is perhaps my very least favorite euphemism. Most of the rest are just silly, but I find this one to evoke nothing pleasurable, just something nasty to be taken care of. Yuck.

Oh, and cheekbone implants are creepy as hell.

Give how young she is, I'd say it's not so incredibly disproportionate. Maybe her hips got some photoshopped slimming; maybe the lighting emphasised the shadows in her cleavage; maybe she did get fakes, who knows?

Agree. Wasn't there a shot last year or so, in which several starlets were made up to look like the starlets of yesteryear? I think LL was Elizabeth Taylor, as suggested above. And Jarlet Johansson was MM.

Now that I am thinking more than one second per week about this, I am now creeped out by the idea of the magazine people forcing the people of today into the mold of the people of yesteryear.

re: 232

Usually if stuff is shot on film it'll still be modified in post-production. Even workflows that start with film usually go through a digital stage before it goes to press and retouching was always done even in the days before digital.

There's books [now out of print] that cover retouching for both black and white and colour work in detail.

On reflection, it matters to me that LL apparently has talent, had a pre-existing fan base, and had some successful movies in her past. If all she had to offer was her attractive physique--like, say, that Showgirls woman--then I'd be much less bothered by the plastic surgery. If you're simply trying to monetize your attractiveness, then maximizing it seems pretty straightforwardly sane.

But, for example, I'd be just crushed if Jodie Foster came out wearing DD implants.

I think JM means the way Lohan's left upper-arm rests against her body in slide 3, which slightly disturbs the line of her arm. It's not weird fat, just the way she's holding her arm against her body, but I think JM is right that it would normally be photoshopped out.

And just as a general note, I can't really enjoy The Superficial and WWTDD anymore, since they're now almost exclusively feeding on young women struggling with substance abuse (like Lohan: coke, booze) or mental breakdowns (Spears) or body dismorphia (Richie). And the deathwatch subtext isn't even subtextual anymore.

2 points on Ellroy and then bed as I am on 90 min of airplane sleep + visiting Grandma in hospital:

1. Manohla Dargis has a great little BFI Film Classics book in which she ably champions LA Confidential as the superior LA noir to Chinatown.

2. Cold 6000 is unreadable. Around White Jazz, Ellroy's sentences start breaking down or loosening up. American Tabloid reveals that the propulsive thread keeping his stories moving despite the breakdown is bile, but there's still enough story and sentence to make it riveting. By Cold 6000, it's 100% bile, and very little sentence left.

Cold Six Thousand was the moment when I'd had enough. Couldn't even finish it.

That seems a bit unfair to Bert Stern, who is imitating his own "last session" photographs of MM.

That's part of why I think he's exploiting her personal problems. By the time the last MM session was done, I'm sure it was well-know (or as widely-known as these things were at the time) that MM was going to completely self-destruct sooner rather than later. Doesn't exactly make him look like a stand-up guy.

297 is right, but DOA is probably my favorite noir or noirish movie. More SF than LA, though.

I've only seen D.O.A. (1988), and I'm betting you're not referring to that one.

Definitely not.

I didn't like it that much though. What's with the goofy music?

"The Glass Key" and "Kiss Me Deadly" I liked a lot better.

You can get it for free. I've read The Glass Key but haven't seen a film version. It was ok.

On this Chinatown/ L.A. Con. "argument", compare John Huston and James Cromwell and I think it's obvious which film is better.

Cold 6000 is unreadable.

I made myself finish American Tabloid, but I didn't get a chapter or two into the Cold 6k before saying "Fuck it. Life's too short." Which is a shame, because when Ellroy's not trying to hector the hell out of the reader he's a pretty good writer.

One of the amazing things about Ellroy is that he writes every novel in longhand first. In ballpoint pen. And it's all total chicken scratch.

re: 307

Yeah, exactly. It [Cold 6K] read like a piece of bad self-parody. All the stylistic quirks of his earlier work amped up to the point that it begins to complete obscure everything else.

He is a very weird man, though. I watched a documentary about the Black Dahlia that was on BBC in which Ellroy explored the real life case and was struck by just how odd he really is [something I supposed I should have known from My Dark Places].

No one in history has ever masturbated to Jean Grey, Kitty Pryde, or Jessica Rabbit (the latter, other than R. Crumb).

Not spent much time in the netherregions of comics fandom then? (NSFWor Anwhere, really)

And then there's this.

Lindsay pwn'd? Am I using that word correctly?

Photographer Bert Stern, the now 78-year-old most famous for getting Marilyn Monroe to strip on film six weeks before her overdose on barbiturates (then going ahead and publishing contact sheets Monroe had exed out with red marker), suggested a much less revealing homage for the mag. A rumor from the very closed set suggests Stern dangled the possibility that the nudes would be displayed only in a museum or as part of his book and that the tamer shots would go to New York.

Stoned girls are easy to trick. I mean, so I hear.

FYI, they've now posted 4 more images they call "outtakes" in the NYMag's slideshow. I know this from Jezebel, where they were comparing LL's spread to the SportsIllustrated swimsuit edition, to see which was "smuttier."

And although I don't care and don't really like to see boobs dissected and judged like this, slide 12 makes me call "fake." The left one looks...square, somehow? at the edges. But maybe it's the lighting or the position, and not an implant at all.

LL's vagina, OTOH, is by all accounts very real. Ask practically anyone.
