Yes, 40-year-old men still get them. Permit me to drool over two of them. Both over age, so hush, Goddammit.


The Talent Crush. Ms. Ebersole, not only gorgeous (and it's her birthday today!) and a sexy, sexy middle-aged woman, is also the possessor of the finest voice in all the realm as of these days. (Barbara Cook, OK maybe. But still. Look at Christine. So hot!) And in a few months time, she's going to be back at them there Tonys, picking one up for her Promethean performance in Grey Gardens. Playing mama Beale in first act, daughter Beale in second, getting huge laughs dressed like God knows what, doing "The Revolutionary Costume for Today."

Then, she drops the hammer and blows the room away with "Another Winter in a Summer Town," based on the most moving moment in the documentary on which the show is based, when Little Edie is alone with the camera and says that if she doesn't get away from the Hamptons and her dilapidated mansion before winter sets on, she won't be able to take it anymore. Get thee to iTunes or whatever proprietary software thou posesseth and download it now. Then begin constructing your shrine to the de-lovely Christine Ebersole. Then, when you come back, I'll tell you about sweet Caroline.


The Dreamy Crush. Ever since I saw her in a little nothing Canadian Showtime movie about swimmer Marilyn Bell, rocking a pixie cut and smiling like mmmmmmmmmmmooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnnnn sorry. Ahem. That's Caroline Dhavernas. Not well known in the US (she's French Canadian, speaks both languages fluently ahh French mmmmmmmmmmmooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnnnn)sorry. Anyway, best known for the underrated "Wonderfalls." Go rent it. Or buy it. Or see her and her pretty, pretty hair in Breach. She's like a more mature Katie Holmes with some life left in her eyes.
