Everything Old is Cool Again

OH boy, now I've heard it all.

Why does Hollywood have such an obsession with labelling everything?? Apparently hetero/homo/metro sexual isn't descriptive enough. Now there are retrosexuals.

That's right. Retrosexuals. Think about it, who would that label describe?? Supposedly, Vince Vaughn would be the King of the Retrosexuals. "(He) is a manly man, an alpha male who may have the physique of a Shar-Pei dog (a little wrinkly and flabby, yet endearing), the manners of a 5-year-old (the kind who makes armpit farting noises at the dinner table) and the ability to pull you in for a hot, sweaty kiss and then go right out and fix your darn car."

Um, OK. Will Ferrell and Jack Black are also said to epitomize the retrosexual label. Who else would you say qualifies?? I'm thinking Steve Martin doing his SNL character in that kooky accent, "I'm a wild and crazy guy..."

I guess if you're looking for a slightly smelly, unkempt, hairy, paunchy yet somehow sexy man, go find yourself a retrosexual...
