MontyPython93: Oh beautiful, beautiful Neil <3

the_thina at 12:04 pm July 29

humor, talent and charm. beauty from the inside if you ask me. but of course, those puppydog-eyes help a lot on the way. haha

the_thina:

got a great and true story! it was the 60s and he was on the road with the bonzos. he run around as the colour-blind fashionguru we all know and love. he ran into a couple of stiff costume-men, who had the nerve to tell him he looked like an idiot. he said "how do you think YOU look then?"
later on the bus he started thinking "but whats wrong with beeing an idiot?" took out a piece of paiper and a pen and the rest is, as they say, history.
funny thing the snobs did all of us a huge favour beeing rude to him!

thewastelandr:

Oh yeah!

mrsCutout at 8:56 am July 26

the_thina at 11:05 am July 25

Holly at 8:49 am July 26

the_thina at 12:29 pm July 26

that is probobly my favourite picture of him ever. he looks very artsy fartsy/french. the scarf and the way he is holding the cigarette tops it off. aaah, cute cute cute!

Alainainthesky at 9:41 pm July 22

Yess, I do love this picture of him. He looks so very handsome and artsy fatsy is a good word for the photo. I love when men wear scarfs.

the_thina at 10:15 pm July 22

haha, yes, but hey, he did go to art-school! :)
and I forgot, the big-ass sideburns! I love big 60s 70s type sideburns. not a big fan of beards tho, just sideburns and maybe a mouctache or goatee

sit-on-my-face at 12:19 pm July 23

The only men who can wear the moustache properlly are Zappa, Groucho (but is it real XD), and Peter Cook though he was better without it. Otherwise it's repellent!!!

the_thina at 1:08 pm July 23

haha. no, grouchos was not real, but it was cute on him. :) I think freddie mercury did have a great moustache.

Alainainthesky at 2:37 pm July 23

Freddie Mercury could rock a mustache.
I love sideburns/mutton chops.

the_thina at 3:01 pm July 23

what is mutton chops?

Alainainthesky at 3:13 pm July 23

They're like sideburns, but go down the jawline. They look good on certain guys, and not on others.
That's not the best picture of muttonchops, but I do love them on John Lennon.

the_thina at 3:31 pm July 23

oh I see. I have a friend who have those, pretty cool. :)
if I had facial hair I would totally grow a pair of huge sidburns

Alainainthesky at 4:05 pm July 23

:)
Haha, me too! Downside of being a girl.

the_thina at 4:31 pm July 23

haha, yeah it is for sure! but some women get moustaches when they get older, its a pitty its moustaches, not sideburns. haha

sit-on-my-face at 2:31 pm July 23

Hum hum, quite right... But I find truly that men are so much more attractive without it... It's like an undernose caterpillar... Few men can handle that.

the_thina at 3:03 pm July 23

well, beards is no fun, but moustaches can be ok. but after snogging a guy waring one for a few hours it feels like you have been rubbing a toothbruch HARD over your upper lip.... that hurts!

Lvndr HppE:

Was watching some Rutland stuff on youtube. Thought I'd share some pictures with you.

the_thina at 7:20 am July 22

haha oh I love this one. batman has NEVER looked more gay, even if the batman this was based on gived BIG readings on my gay-dar. haha. 70s batman and robin was SOOOO having it on! hahaha

A. Lupin at 7:35 pm July 22

I love this song xD He looks terrific dressed up like that. Agree with Thina ^^

Lvndr HppE at 8:35 am July 23

I just liked the thumbs u on the side.

Lvndr HppE at 8:35 am July 23

Augh, what's with my typing today? Thumbs UP, not thumbs u.

Lvndr HppE:

MontyPython93: Ron Nasty is my fave Rutle <3 And Neil Innes is my fave almost-python <3<3

the_thina at 8:17 am July 18

haha, yeah same here. but its easy to have him as favoutite bonus-python. beause I for onr has never seen anything else that arol or onnie did outside python (fawlty towers dont ount sine both onnie AND john was involved) but neil has done a hell of a lot both before and after python.

A. Lupin at 7:37 pm July 22

the_thina:
