Dana Carvey, about 1980. cutey. I'd hit it. Probably would today, too.

Hey, Mister Hippie Dippy weatherman. What's the difference between a Canadian Low and a Mexican High?

Oh man, a Canadian Low is nothing like a Mexican High, man. You gotta... You know what? I probably said too much. Meet me out in the alley in ten minutes. I can demonstrate.

My mentor at the junior college told me that I have a face for radio. So, after doing the 2 AM News at the JC radio station (50 powerful watts!) for a week, I decided to make the jump to television.

Dana Carvey?


Maybe, but there's a picture with a guy posed exactly like this, and I can't find it. I'm not sure that who I'm thinking of is Dana Carvey.

MattyFridays: The fact that someone's eyes are closed is a sign of a bad photographer, not a bad subject.


These were taken in 1983. They didn't have any way to review the images, film and developing was still expensive, and these are otherwise professional looking hi-quality shots - that was very expensive too and I'm sure the TV station couldn't afford more than one shot per person - unfortunately, some people blinked.

Fortunately for us, someone thought it was funny looking enough to save the rejects so we could all have a laugh 30 years later.

Is that really Dana Carvey? Because it looks just like that guy in Family or Eight Is Enough or whatever it was. No, wait, he looks like the guy in Blue Lagoon, Christopher something. Atkins?

That's not who I'm thinking of. I know there's a picture of almost that exact pose, with those thin lips, the same mullet, and only slightly duller eyes.

Thirteen seconds. So you really think she'll let you go twice?
 
2012-10-01 01:53:24 PM  
What's funny is that for those of us who remember the 80's, these are just mostly average people. A few outliers, but you wouldn't have looked twice at 90% of them walking down the street.

In 30 years, when Fark posts a link to a bunch of crazy freaks from 2012 you can laugh at them wearing your transparent denim spandex ties.

dark side of the moon: I don't know anything about photography. The photographer said he developed the pictures "without proofing them first." What does that mean? Just curious.


I'm pretty sure it means developing a "proof sheet" before developing full size images. Ever see an old movie where a photographer is looking through a magnifier at a sheet of images? That's a proof sheet, film stock, chemicals, development time, all cost money so, after developing the negatives, they would shoot them on a single sheet of film stock, develop that, then decide which images should be developed full-size. Saved time and money.

This guy is basically saying it had these developed full-size (probably 8x10) and skipped the proof sheet step.
