Blast From The Past for November 3rd:

 Ed Marinaro
From: Favorite Hunks & Other Things
The Sex Symbol of Hill Street
 I knew of football player and actor Ed Marinaro, but not well. I was a bit young to have watched him in much, but I do remember seeing his handsome face in magazines in the mid to late 80's when my obsession with celebrity, and celebrity magazines was beginning. A few weeks ago, while looking for an image for another Blast From The Past post, I came across an image of Ed that sparked this piece. Ed was standing in wearing turquoise underwear, (that look more like panties..) from a 1990 Fruit of the Loom ad, and decided he required further investigation.

 Such a handsome man, sexy Italian New York face, great body and voice. Ed began his football career playing on his high school team in New Jersey and in 1971, was runner-up for the Heisman Trophy. Ed went on to play for the New York Jets in 1976, the Seattle Seahawks in 1977 and most famously with his first NFL team, The Minnesota Vikings from 1972 through 1975. Marinaro went on to be inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1991.

 After his football career ended, no one was about to let that face just go away. Marinaro did a few small parts before becoming a regular for a season on ABC's Laverne & Shirley in 1980. TV movies and guest star roles followed until he got his biggest role, that of Officer Joe Coffey on Hill Street Blues starting in 1981. After Hill St, Marinaro remained busy and also had short stints on Dynasty, Falcon Crest, Sisters and most recently as a football coach on Blue Mountain State.

 Marinaro has made good use of his assets, especially his impressive bulge. (see image below) Marinaro's manhood has been the focus in more than a few of his photo-shoots and as well, in not one, but two underwear campaigns. The first, covered in red in the 70's when he modeled for Jockey. And again in 1990 for Fruit of the Loom in those turquoise undies I mentioned earlier.

Classic Televison - Prime Time

Original run
September 17, 1968 – March 23, 1971
Diahann Carroll
Lloyd Nolan
Marc Copage
Michael Link
Betty Beaird
Lurene Tuttle

Julia is an American sitcom notable for being one of the first weekly series to depict an African American woman in a non-stereotypical role. Previous television series featured African American lead characters, but the characters were usually servants. The show stars actress and singer Diahann Carroll, and ran for 86 episodes on NBC from September 17, 1968 to March 23, 1971. The series was produced by Savannah Productions, Inc., Hanncarr Productions, Inc., and 20th Century-Fox Television.
During pre-production, the proposed series title was Mama's Man. The series was also unique in that it was among the few situation comedies in the late 1960s that did not use a laugh track; however, 20th Century-Fox Television added them when the series was reissued for syndication and cable rebroadcasts in the late 1980s.
In Julia, Carroll played widowed single mother Julia Baker (her husband, Army Capt. Baker, an O-1 Bird Dog artillery spotter pilot had been shot down in Vietnam) who was a nurse in a doctor's office. The doctor, Morton Chegley, was played by Lloyd Nolan, and Julia's romantic interests by Paul Winfield and Fred Williamson. Julia's son, Corey (Marc Copage) was approximately six to nine years old during the series run. He had barely known his father before he died. Corey's best friend is Earl J. Waggedorn (called by that precise full name each and every time). The Waggedorns lived downstairs in the same apartment building, with Len (Hank Brandt), Marie (Betty Beaird), son Earl J. Waggedorn (Michael Link) and infant son.
The first two seasons included Nurse Hannah Yarby (Lurene Tuttle), who left to be married at the beginning of the third season, just as the clinic's manager, Brockmeyer, ordered downsizing — and removal of minorities from employment. (Chegley let Yarby go but kept Julia in defiance of the manager's edict.) The second and third season included Richard (Richard Steele) as a character some one or two years older than Corey. Chegley's father, Dr. Norton Chegley (also played by Lloyd Nolan) made two appearances.

Ruby Rose 
Born:  1986
When model-actress Ruby Rose arrived at Litchfield Penitentiary this past season, OITNB fans took notice—as did the rest of the Internet, quickly declaring a collective crush on the Australian bombshell.

But even more impressive than Rose’s (extremely impressive) good looks is the candor with which she has spoken about her her sexuality, gender identity and history of bullying.

An out lesbian since age 12, when she faced verbal and physical harassment from her peers, she came out last year as gender-fluid with the release of the short autobiographical film Break Free.

November 3rd is Election Day

Election Day in the United States is the day set by law for the general elections of public officials. It occurs on the Tuesday right after the first Monday in November (this does not necessarily mean the "first Tuesday" in a month because the first day of a month can be a Tuesday). The earliest possible date is November 2, and the latest possible date is November 8. The 2012 election was held on November 6, 2012.

For federal offices (President, Vice President, and United States Congress), Election Day occurs only in even-numbered years. Presidential elections are held every four years, in years divisible by four, in which electors for President and Vice President are chosen according to the method determined by each state. Elections to the United States House of Representatives and the United States Senate are held every two years; all Representatives serve two-year terms and are up for election every two years, while Senators serve six-year terms, staggered so that one-third of Senators are elected in any given general election. General elections in which presidential candidates are not on the ballot are referred to as midterm elections. Terms for those elected begin in January the following year; the President and Vice President are inaugurated ("sworn in") on Inauguration Day, which is usually on January 20.

Many state and local government offices are also elected on Election Day as a matter of convenience and cost saving, although a handful of states hold elections for state offices (such as governor) during odd-numbered "off years", or during other even-numbered "midterm years".

Congress has mandated a uniform date for presidential (3 U.S.C. § 1) and congressional (2 U.S.C. § 1 and 2 U.S.C. § 7) elections, though early voting is nonetheless authorized in many states.

Election Day is a civic holiday in some states, including Delaware, Hawaii, Kentucky, Montana, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, West Virginia, and the territory of Puerto Rico. Some other states require that workers be permitted to take time off from employment without loss of pay. California Elections Code Section 14000 provides that employees otherwise unable to vote must be allowed two hours off with pay, at the beginning or end of a shift. A coincidental federal holiday, Democracy Day, has been unsuccessfully proposed.

Academy Award for Best Actress

Katharine Hepburn
Christina Drayton
Guess Who's Coming to Dinner
Katharine Houghton Hepburn (May 12, 1907 – June 29, 2003) was an American actress. Known for her fierce independence and spirited personality, Hepburn was a leading lady in Hollywood for more than 60 years. She appeared in a range of genres, from screwball comedy to literary drama, and received four Academy Awards for Best Actress—a record for any performer. In 1999, Hepburn was named by the American Film Institute as the greatest female star of Classic Hollywood Cinema.

Raised in Connecticut by wealthy, progressive parents, Hepburn began to act while studying at Bryn Mawr College. After four years in the theater, favorable reviews of her work on Broadway brought her to the attention of Hollywood. Her early years in the film industry were marked with success, including an Academy Award for her third picture, Morning Glory (1933), but this was followed by a series of commercial failures which led her to be labeled "box office poison" in 1938. Hepburn masterminded her own comeback, buying out her contract with RKO Radio Pictures and acquiring the film rights to The Philadelphia Story, which she sold on the condition that she be the star. In the 1940s she was contracted to Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, where her career focused on an alliance with Spencer Tracy. The screen-partnership spanned 25 years, and produced nine movies.

Hepburn challenged herself in the latter half of her life, as she regularly appeared in Shakespearean stage productions and tackled a range of literary roles. She found a niche playing middle-aged spinsters, such as in The African Queen (1951), a persona the public embraced. Three more Oscars came for her work in Guess Who's Coming to Dinner (1967), The Lion in Winter (1968) and On Golden Pond (1981). In the 1970s she began appearing in television films, which became the focus of her career in later life. She remained active into old age, making her final screen appearance in 1994 at the age of 87. After a period of inactivity and ill health, Hepburn died in 2003 at the age of 96.

Hepburn famously shunned the Hollywood publicity machine, and refused to conform to society's expectations of women. She was outspoken, assertive, athletic, and wore trousers before it was fashionable for women to do so. She married once, as a young woman, but thereafter lived independently. A 26-year affair with her co-star Spencer Tracy was hidden from the public. With her unconventional lifestyle and the independent characters she brought to the screen, Hepburn epitomized the "modern woman" in 20th century America and is remembered as an important cultural figure.

Today in History...

November 3, 361 –

November 3rd is Cliché Day

A cliché is a phrase used over and over and over and over, or an element of artistic work that occurs in films or music just as often. So is there a better candidate for a Day of the Year than ‘Cliché Day’? After all, it comes up over and over and over and over, just like its namesake! If you’re the kind of person who tries to avoid tired old clichés for fear of sounding stupid, this is the day to get them all out of your system in one bound and never have to think about them again till next year. Cliché Day is the day to advise your brother to ‘seize the day’ (or just exclaim ‘YOLO’ at random moments), accuse your spouse of being ‘drunk as a skunk’, tell your best friend she ‘means the world to you’. In a nutshell, it’s all fine and dandy on this particular day, so go with the flow.

The History of Cliché Day

The word “cliché” comes from French. It was originally an onomatopoeia describing the sound a a printing plate (also called a steareotype) from movable type made when it was used. Because of this, the word’s meaning slowly evolved to mean a ready-made phrase that no thought was put into writing, and that definition has stuck, and the word “cliché” can be used both as an adjective and a noun.

How to Celebrate Cliché Day

Clichés can be annoying due to both their predictability and lack of any true true meaning. However, they can also be amusing for these exact same reasons, so why not take advantage of Cliché Day to have a bit of fun with them and get them out of your system till next year? A great way to do this is watch a movie—romantic comedies and horror movies in particular tend to be rife with clichés used shamelessly over and over again that have long since stopped provoking the reaction or emotional response they were meant to in the first place. So make some popcorn, grab a soft drink and sit back to chuckle as that obviously gorgeous woman whose looks have been underplayed for the first part of the film shocks everyone speechless when she finally puts on some clothes that fit her properly and brushes her hair. Or at that career-obsessed man who fell for a small-town girl run to the airport to declare his love and commitment just in time to stop her plane from leaving after they’d broken up and you were sure there was no hope for their love. Or at the “meet cute” where both parties accidentally fall right into each other and fall deeply in love. If you prefer scarier films, rest assured that there is not shortage of “he’s behind you” moments in horror movies, or groups of party-crazy teens who choose the dirtiest, creepiest cabin in the entire forest to spend a weekend in together. A whole family got murdered here just last month and the killer was never found? No problem, we’ll take it! What was that strange noise in the bushes? Let’s split up and go take a look!

At the end of the day, ‘Cliché Day’ is just a bit of fun. You’d have to be crazy as a loon to let it drive you up the wall, for crying out loud!
