she liked Imaginary Men best of all

This Just In: Dylan McKay, still dreamy


A few weeks ago I was home on a Saturday afternoon with the TV on. This rarely happens because for one thing – I’m not often home on a Saturday, and for another – there’s nothing on Saturday’s that I want to watch. Of course this takes into account the fact that I had completely forgotten about SoapNet’s “Breakfast in Bed” which is a marathon of 90210 repeats for a better part of the day.

I got sucked in RIGHT at the good stuff – which is Dylan and Kelly (hisssss!!) telling Brenda they’re an item and her bitching, “I hate you both! Never talk to me again!!” Now this is just a Classic 90210 moment and so I tweeted it to the fabulous Go Fug Yourself Girls who are themselves massive fans of BevNiner and got I even got a tweet reply from GFY Jessica!! Ok, so it was just a “Yeah!!” but still, that’s kinda awesome.

Then of course, Dylan’s dad blows up and he literally embraces his wounded Inner Child at the funeral (why is this not on YouTube??!!) It is all kinds of Cheesy Teen Drama greatness at it’s very best. And it reminded me how much I loved this VF cover:


See, I don’t just do contemporary Shirtless Men – I go 90’s Old School too 😉

A few nights ago I watched a much older Luke Perry in the Jason Priestley (Brandon ‘n’ Dylan 4Evah!) directed Goodnight for Justice, which was a pretty predictable Western in which Luke plays a hard-drinkin’, horse-ridin’, vengeance seekin’, justice servin’ Judge in the Ye Olde West. Oh Coy Luther Perry III – I still Heart You – even with lines on your face and a scruffy beard. But we will always have this picture!

  1. Is that a gun in between Luke’s legs, or is he just happy to see me? 😉 (Come on! You know they had him hold that revolver THERE, on purpose. I’m sure I’m not the only one to whom that occurred. ;)).

    Who knew Luke Perry was so cut and toned? Not ME, that’s for sure. He also looks a bit sunburnt, like he’s been working out in the fields all day. MOMMY LIKE! 🙂

    Occasionally, I too will catch an episode or two of 90210 on SoapNet. I am an especial fan of episodes from The Brenda Years, because everyone knows that those were the best ones. 🙂

  2. oh my god… THIGHSTRAP!!!! nice pic, Amy. this one’s going in the rolodex of my mind
