So what are you, the flying nun?

Now I'm a child of the 80s. I remember the last half better than the first, but I was born in 81, so that's 9 years. I love learning 80s trivia, the outcome of the stars, rewatching the movies and listening to the music. Oh, yes. As cracked out as the 80s were, at least they weren't the 90s, which brought the lumberjack look into mainstream.

So, of course I'm interested in A&E's show, The Two Coreys. I mean, come on. Everyone knew about the Coreys, especially their dumbass moves. Haim, for the win! Ahem. Anyway, I did some looking and bless Wiki for the information that it brings.

You see, it linked me to his official page. Oh, yes. He has one. And a thrilling one it is! The news looks like it was cobbled together by a writer for Bop or Tiger Beat. And clearly all his fans must be in drug-induced hazes. Now, doing some looking around, I noticed a section called "Artwork." Oh, you know where this is going, don't you? It seems he's got some art in museums over in Europe (what they did to deserve that, I'll never know). They say he's got a Picasso feel. Now, I'm not fan of Picasso, but you know, I somehow doubt that Haim's in the same category as movement's founder and all. But I digress.

From his website, the entire blurby thing.
When COREY isn't busy filming, one of the things that he enjoys most is painting! Already an accomplished artist, COREY currently has seven pieces of his artwork displayed in museums in Sweden, Switzerland, and Germany. In fact, he recently sold one of his paintings in Bruges, Belgium, for $7,400!

Much like COREY's favorite painter, Pablo Picasso, his style is very unique. Using a thick texturing of acrylic paints on canvas and his gift for intuition, COREY can create an abstract visual that is very pleasing to the eye!

COREY is now offering the opportunity to own one of his paintings -- an original work of art created just for you! He will need to know what size painting you want and a little bit about your personality. Let him know:
1. Three (3) of your favorite colors (in order of importance or preference)
2. What a few of your hobbies are -- or a few keywords to the feeling or mood of the painting you want, and
3. Whether you prefer black or white!

Now, the prices. For a 16"x20" painting, it'll be $788. For a 18"x24", it's $988. Now my question is how much coke did he snort that he's willing to offer his painting talents to anyone that'll pay nearly a grand for them? Seriously. What is it with child stars? Do they like not pay attention to many generations before them and not get an accountant while wildly successful?

Sorry, that's my useless post for the week. I was just amazed that you can spend nearly a grand for a famous person's artwork, and it reads like ordering fanart requests. I'd prefer to buy the fanart, honestly. After all, I know what to expect there, don't I?

I'm sorry, Europe can have both Corey Haim and David Hasselhoff. We really don't need either over here.

And damn you for tricking me into clicking that link and going to his website. LOL!

I agree. We really don't need them. I wonder if they can take Lohan while they're at it. I watched the episodes last night. I want my hour back, man. Pitiful show. He's such a douchebag in it. Though, apparently there is going to be a Lost Boys 2, but it won't have any of the original cast in it. Greeeeat.

Hey, at least I didn't link the main site! I saved you from the Totally! Teenybopper! Tiger Beat! writing on the front page. See! I wasn't completely mean.

Tiger Beat. Man. I haven't thought of that rag in forevah!

Never was much of a fan of the Lost Boys. I don't really care much for Keifer. *shrugs* He's not like on my Tom Cruise list, but he's definitely on my "meh" list.

*laugh* I LOVED Tiger Beat back in the Jonathan Brandis era. Bop and BB went out of business, I think. Sad.

I don't like Keifer. I liked the grandpa, mom, and mom's boyfriend. I liked their other stuff. Mom was in Practical Magic, as one of the aunts. And the boyfriend was on Gilmore Girls. Grandpa was on something I can't remember what. Little things make me happy. Plus? It was like a toned down horror, save for the maggot scene. I wasn't into Nightmare on Elm Street, Chucky, or the Jason movies. So this was up my alley.

Okay, fine. And Jason Patric was a hot piece of ass.

Jason Patric, Corey Haim and Jonathon Brandis were like, my IDOLS when I was young. Brandis was the ONLY reason I watched Seaquest DSV LOL and I loved The Lost Boys mmmmm

See, I was more of a JTT, Devon Sawa, Brandis fan. Why, yes. I was quite shallow. But Jason Patric in that movie was a hotass, damn it.

SeaQuest. Dude, I loved that show! Well, the first season. Not so much the second, weird 100 years in the future one. Plus, Brandis got kinda skeevy then. And I hate speaking ill of the dead.

I watched the trainwreck. All I can say is "Well, at least they're not Paris Hilton."
