Did he dazzle you with his extensive knowledge of mineral water or was it his in-depth analysis of Marky Mark that finally reeled you in?
So here I go traipsing perilously into US Magazine territory, but bear with me, there’s good music herewith. AOL Spinner blog posted a slideshow the other day of the 20+ musicians that Winona Ryder has been romantically linked to over the years. Quite unfathomable — it reads like the most-played list on my iPod [er, no pun intended]. Amongst the mostly-vicious comments on the original post was this laughable one:
“She dated MICHAEL NESMITH? UGH. If you’re planning to date a Monkee, then choose Mickey Dolenz because at least he could sing.
On the other hand, don’t choose ANY Monkee.”
Take these things with a grain of salt, sure, but as I clicked through the somewhat unbelievable slideshow of dudes, I said out loud, several times, “SHUT UP.” If it’s true, someone get this woman a Gatorade.
. . . and then I agreed with the person who sent this to me that said I should make a mix of all their music. Clearly.
