Happy birthday to the beautiful and talented Joan Chen, who turned 49 (???!?!?!?!?) this week!

We can’t believe it’s been 20 years since we fell for Chen’s mysterious eyes on Twin Peaks. Here’s a vintage scene from Season 2 to remind you how she could singlehandedly inspire sexy fantasies with just a blink of her eyelashes:

Um. It’s possible that her skin actually got smoother and more radiant over the years. Does she only get more interesting and sultry? How can we do that?

I was a terrible music snob years ago, unable to listen to domestic dub without scoffing, tap a toe to jazz by white dudes without rolling my eyes, eye the cover of Spin without laughing. Worst of all were my opinions regarding bands anointed as the pioneers of “Screamo,” with their black t-shirts and fists in the air, who I was always convinced were out specifically to bastardize everything that all rock legends (indie and major alike) had worked so hard for decades to establish. They threatened everything I actualy did love and I hated them for that.

Thrice was one of those bands. Hell, they were that band. Leading the charge of that sordid Screamo movement from my Orange County homeland, they rocked the fists and the tshirts and the bitchin’-but-sad guitar solos that my record bag and I simply didn’t understand. I didn’t even bother hating them, I just ignored them.

But it’s been almost a decade and about eight records later for Thrice, and having just heard a half-dozen of their newest tracks, I realize that they’ve grown up a lot since forging the way for Screamo. (It’s a part of their past and forgivable offense, I guess. I mean, my god, what was I doing then? Writing bad poetry?) I’ve been ignorant for too long.

We all grow up, it seems. And, okay, I have a kind of unreasonable crush on lead guitarist Teppei Teranishi.

Check the discography here.

“Islands in the stream, that is what we are…”

I’ve always kind of assumed that Nick Lachey was a pretty run-of-the-mill, I’ll-wait-for-my-wife’s-dad-to-unlock-her-chastity-belt, first base-second base-third base-home, missionary-position-for-14-minutes-in-the-master-bedroom-on-Tuesday kind of guy. Why wouldn’t he be? He married one of those righteous blonde virgins (once), and all of his MTV reality counterparts are reportedly so sucky in the bedroom no one will even bother to bust them on it.

However, TMZ just reported that Mr. Lachey and his Vaseline-smile woman were caught on camera getting damn freaky in the hot tub of a private Mexican resort.

TMZ has learned that the rest of the roll shows the two not only making out, but having hardcore sex in the hot tub. A source who has seen the photos tells TMZ that they are “Paris sex tape-level scandalous,” and include images of the couple in several different sex positions. That’s hot!

Well, well, well. Maybe you two aren’t so boring after all. I’m liking you both more already.
