Doubled and redoubled congratulations to Met press director Peter Clark (right), who tied for the Greater New York Bridge Association Flight B Player of the Year award. (Photo via Bloomberg/Stephanie Green.)
What a horrible photo of Peter Clark. He’s much better looking than that.
Yikes! Paging Francis Robinson.
Yes, that was a different time with dear Francis, John Gutman (who always gave me access to so many MET rehearsals) Osie, Charlie Riecker, Merle and others.
What a l
What a lovely lesbian couple!
That pic scared the crap out of me, literally.
Literally. It looks like Rosie O’Donnell and Victor Buono had children!
Funny, my first reaction on seeing dome-pated women is not “Is she a lesbian?” but “Is she on chemo?”
Anyway, it may be that you frighten too easily. Try butching up a little.
Oh, but chemo faces (or “spoon-like faces” as the French call them) are -sadly- very recognizable, no ambiguity is possible: the skin is unnaturally smooth and has a livid color.
Unlike you, I know what someone on chemo looks like.
I just assumed she was Elza van den Heever. (Isn’t she?)
It is not so much the boiled egg coiffure that worries me -- more the slightly rude chin.
I was hoping for a better pic of him! (But thanks, Manou. That was a lovely photo.)
Well, if we’re going to talk rude chins:
Yeeeeesss, but not as finely delineated a miniature.
Oh dear. Tt’s as though Ms Potato Head had put her lips an inch too high.
Yea, but at least THAT face as a whole didn’t look like a myopic Snowman.
But Joanie always said that those top E flats were in her lantern jaw.
I think EvdH has a good face, even if she isn’t as delicate cute as the sublime Mojica and can’t do a Nino and claim to look like Angelina. But she has a real voice, at least.
At least for those who use “real” synonymously with “loud”.
When I heard her the other day I thought she could probably be good in Berg and Strauss, but she is too rough for belcanto.
She’s real piercing, alright.
I’ve only seen her live as Komponist. It certainly made an effect in the theatre -- and good to hear a jugendlich-dramatisch soprano rather than a strained lyric mezzo in the high lines.
Amen Oedipe. She’s good for Berg and Strauss, but she screamed all evening long and carried on like a butch dyke in drag. But maybe that was McVicar’s “konzept.”
Do you mean Mojca, or tinyurl.com/bdttaov ?
I should have applied a mojicum of intelligence to my spelling.
That’s not Joe Clark! and she looks like she’s dressed for a gala benefit for mamography.
Il y a des vaches ici.
Well, she did need a gimmick — and she got one. But it doesn’t compensate for her lack of tone in the middle and below …
I see I am not the only one to have found that voice colorless, albeit loud…
“Which twin has the TONI?”
Which twin IS Tony?
Btw, Cammiest, A.I. says Hi!
That’s Toni and Tony!
Big kisses to U&AI
Monsieur Camille et moi are en vacances for a few days so I will not be around much so I wanted to take this opportunity to give youse guys a big smooch!
Love et semper fidelis—
Cammiest, enjoy your vacation.
Curiously, Peter Clark’s bridge partner, Jess Jurkovic, receives a sex-change in the middle of that bridge column. Halfway-through, South [Jurkovic] is called a “she”. The triumphant hand must have had a very stimulating effect on the bridge ace, though, because by the end of the column, “she” had grown a pair.
That would have come in handy had they been playing poker.
Actually: my fault. I misread the column. Duplicate bridge, two tables. Clearly, I don’t read enough bridge columns.
please, people- I know you don’t mean any malice but chemo jokes aren’t funny, here or in any context.
I don’t see any chemo jokes.
I don’t think anybody was making chemo “jokes”, blanchette.
on a lighter- or more on pitch note- Meade- yes!! I kind of admire Racette but her singing is pour moi a bit of a trial-
not to beat a bald head, but -benefit for mam(sic)ography ?- no offense taken qpf et al. xx
Cieca, thank you for starting with a line from Cinderella. It is now stuck in my head…very nicely.
