Crush Week in Blogland


OK, so first there was Bobby Sherman ,then Donny Osmond... innocent crushes, followed by David Cassidy, Shawn Cassidy, Andy Gibb... actors are great, singers even better, but guitar playing singingactingohmygodthat hairthatsmilethoseeyeshisass inthosewranglers!!!! My ultimate teen idol who still sends me to the store in my...ahem...late thirties, and I mean handsfree shopping, yes it's that good... REX SMITH circa late 70's, early 80's. I made my first E-Bay purchase last week. I bought this movie and fortunately it arrived "Sooner" than I hoped. I've been thrown back in time...my heart throb in his prime! I have cleaned my entire apartment so that APj will loan me her record player as my reward. When it arrives I will listen to all of my coveted, well worn Rex LPs and dream some more.


This is the movie that inspired me to take guitar lessons at 13. I was even lucky enough to take them from a hot blonde 17 year old whose hair looked kinda like Rex's. Alas, he was a "good boy" and the lovely Laurie nabbed him.


It's amazing how a movie, or even an image can take ya back... and make ya smile...

Ahhh....damn he was pretty.

    didn't he have a role in "pirates of penzance" with kevin kline and angela lansbury?
    i'm glad he chose music over theater. music needs more actors.

    No lecram, not yet.

    SSM- actually he WAS in PofP. Pretty much did musical theater after. 'Cept for his stint at hosting Solid Gold.

    you neglected to say that we watched the MUCH abridged version of the movie in your livingroom:
    fast forwarding thru all the parts without Rex....

    I know I'd like to make a comment, but in this risky bloghouse of euphamisms like "cleaning my apartment" and "going to the store" a guy's got to step lightly and carefully.
    Also, coming off of nearly 24 hours of myuzick making with only a coupla hours sleep I know I can't be very clever.
    The one good thing about them "good boys" is that girls with the pretty eyes from back in the day will still say "hello" to them years later. If theyda known to press their every advantage, well, maybe they'd not all be on such friendly terms up here in the Oh Sixes.
    And who the hell is this Rex?

    Theraminman-
    Cleaning the apartment is only what appears to be. Jade Ed Girl is the sincere one. APj is the one ya gotta watch out for. She takes her "kitty" "to the store" and then tells everyone!!! LOL
