International Superstars!

First up, a slightly repulsive little tidbit from Jeannette Walls of MSNBC:
Jennifer Lopez has a new favorite painting — a nude of her.

The singer’s hubby, Marc Anthony, has done an oil painting of J.Lo, reports In Touch Weekly.

“J. Lo was so flattered by the beautiful portrait Marc painted of her that she hung it in her dressing room at home,” notes the mag, which quotes a source as saying, “It depicts Jennifer from her backside. . . . It’s very artistic and tasteful.”

Ahh, yes. She was so flattered that she hung it in her bathroom. Her troll husband must feel so special! I don't know where I would hang a nude oil painting of my ass; perhaps in a darkroom? A home for the blind? A Weight Watchers meeting hall--as a cautionary tale? Hard to say.

What's not hard to say is that Greg Beets has a great post today about local A-town tv ads, specifically Chapman Motors. Run over to Beetsolonely and check out his link to Kimarie Lynn Chapman's website. As a longtime local ad afficianado, I say kudos, Greg, kudos! Well-played, sir! Chapman Motor Company's jingle--sung by Kimarie Lynn and her precocious Chapman cousins--is hard to shake off, like a bad cold or a nasty venereal disease, which is the mark of a truly great and horrible ad. Much like Pol Pot, Adolf Hitler, or Cher, these country-flavored lil' ladies will not be ignored! I'm so hooked, in fact, that I may have to purchase Kimarie Lynn's cd!

On a related note, my mom and I once nearly had identical simultaneous heart attacks when we saw Curtis "Creepy Chiropractor" Hall and his wife Theresa "Leather Furniture Gallery" Mink shopping together at Sam's Club, right in front of us, like normal people! With us hoi polloi! Not very many people know or care that Hall Chiropractic and Theresa Mink's Leather Furniture Gallery are married, but as far as my mother and I are concerned, they are local tv ad royalty! We felt like we'd seen Liz and Burt buying in bulk!

By the way, I love that it's called "Theresa Mink's Leather Furniture Gallery." I think everyone should put their personal identity in their business name. "Ray Kroc's McDonald's," "Sam Walton's Wal-Mart," "Casino El Camino's Casino El Camino," "Susie and Jenn--"...ah, no. Nevermind!

Could "Theresa Mink" possibly be her real name? Is anyone's last name actually "Mink"? More to the point, why isn't my last name Mink, huh, God? Why? It sounds like a stripper or porn star name, in a really good way. Hotcha!

She sells jewelry and jewelry-making supplies on Etsy and her own online shop now. The fine leather, i.e. 80's, furniture store no longer exists.
