Hey everyone! It’s Wednesday! That means the week is half over; you got this!
We’re in this weird time between Christmas and New Year’s that always throws me off. It’s like this seasonal purgatory and I don’t know why December shouldn’t end with Christmas. Get us off this ride!
A slightly shorter links post this time, but all the links are silly and fun. I hope they bring you joy!
See you all on the other side, lovelies!
What a discovery to make! And yes, there are pictures in the Twitter thread.
so in 1988 my mom and her sisters made a beefcake calendar called Every Woman’s Fantasy and do you want to see pictures

I remember posting a still of this one on a links post way back this year. Well the trailer is out and I feel like Romancelandia is rightfully abuzz. Can’t wait! And thank you to everyone who sent it to me!
Continuing the Jorts and Jeans discourse from last time, here is a compendium of Jortses (ginger cats) throughout history.
Good news! Here is a thread of Jortses from throughout history. First, this beauty by Julie de Graag, 1918. pic.twitter.com/W92YmRECwX

I grew up in a rural area and admittedly, watching a Ford or Chevy commercial can make me homesick with his schmaltzy combo of open road footage and light country music. A friend sent me this and I was howling:
Don’t forget to share what cool or interesting things you’ve seen, read, or listened to this week! And if you have anything you think we’d like to post on a future Wednesday Links, send it my way!

That calendar is incredible! My sister and I had the last Men of Mortuaries calendar and we would always get comments from guests. It’s been almost 15 years but I still wish they’d made more.
Jorts is wonderful. I’m sure you’ve seen this essay about “buttering Jorts;” it’s equally so.
Parked Out by the Lake is great, also endless. Thanks for sharing it.
How many socks died to pack his package in Parked Out by the Lake!?
I cannot wait for THE LOST CITY. Channing Tatum and Sandra Bullock seem to have great chemistry, Daniel Radcliffe is an inspired choice for a villain, and the Brad Pitt appearance is perfect (that hair flip at the end is *chef’s kiss*). I am fervently hoping it lives up to all my expectations!
Amanda – Thank you! As always, these links (and the comments) are a joy and one of the highlights of my week. Very stoked because Lost City seems like a great movie to watch with my not-quite adult/not-quite child tween.
Darlynne – thanks for the link to that brilliant essay!
I loved all these links! This is the first I’ve heard of The Lost City, and now I can’t wait!
“My father was a weatherman” –
Yup if I wasn’t already sold on the Romancing the Stone vibes and the Tatum/Bullock chemistry, that line definitely did it for me! I can’t wait!
I’m really looking forward to THE LOST CITY. It looks like so much fun!
“IM DONNY” … dying
Were men that universally waxed in 1988? I was alive but not paying attention at the time.
All of this is just what I needed on a rainy, dull day when there’s nothing going on at work but I can’t leave until all the guys have clocked out. Thank you!
Thank you, Amanda, for a great year of links. I’m looking forward to all the gems you find in 2022!
