God save our gracious Queen,
Long live our noble Queen,
God save the Queen:
Send her victorious,
Happy and glorious,
Long to reign over us:
God save the Queen.

Sigh. She’s so beautiful! Katy Perry is America, and America is Katy Perry. I mean, can’t you just imagine this beautiful countenance on our currency, the same way Elizabeth II appears on British money? I know I can.

Let the haters hate. They’re just jealous.

Guess Who?

Here’s a great picture of one of my all-time favorite TV hotties – former Wipeout and Teen Wolf star Jill Wagner – in high school:

Talk about “late bloomer”! And what about those clothes? hehehehe!

Marilyn knows what’s up!

In September 1952, Marilyn Monroe visited the campus of Georgia Tech to do a photo shoot for Look magazine. As Tech were the national champions that year, the magazine did a four-page spread about the team and their legendary coach, Bobby Dodd. Here’s a copy of the original cover picture, sans the masthead and cover blurbs:


I’ve looked all over the Internet and haven’t been able to find a digital copy of the article, but you can buy a copy of the magazine here for the low, low price of $168! Marilyn was sooooo hot, and she looked especially good in the Tech sweater!



The world can be a harsh and unforgiving place, and life can sometimes seem to want to grind you into the dirt. That’s why people covet “comfort items” like an old sweater, comfy slippers, mac and cheese… or, ya know, Zooey Deschanel:

Oh My: Romola Garai

So the new BBC show The Hour debuted this week. Although many early reviews called it “the British Mad Men“, it wasn’t quite that. The show does have a plotline that involves the media getting too close to the government… which makes me wonder if Kudos knew the News of the World scandal was going to break months ago, or if the whole thing is one gigantic coincidence.

Anyway, one the unexpected delights of the show was actress Romola Garai, who plays producer Bel “Moneypenny” Rowley. Born to British parents in Hong Kong in 1982, Garai can certainly act. And Good Lord – does this woman have an amazing body or what?

You can also see Garai in the films AtonementAmazing Grace, Glorious 39 and in the lead role in the BBC’s 2009 adaptation of Jane Austin’s Emma, for which she was nominated for a Golden Globe.

Congratulations, Romola! You win the “RAWR of the Week” Award! Check out her Wiki page here and hit up Google Images for her here.
