Friday LinkFrogging – 12/17/10

Christmas is in the air kids.

Its also in my car, my house, my wallet and my kids.

Its been another fun year for us here at the ‘Geek.  We’ve seen our little site blossom and we’re on the verge of taking another big step next year.  Stay tuned.

In any event, this will be our final LinkFrogging of the year.  We’ll take next week off to celebrate Christmas and then, on New Year’s Eve, we’ll revisit our top ten posts of the year.

But before we sign off, I want to give you a little gift in the person of this week’s cheesecake.

Say hello to Liv Tyler.

The love child of Aerosmith‘s Steven Tyler and former Playmate, Bebe Buell.  Ms. Tyler spent the first nine years of her life believing Todd Rundgren was her father and, presumably, banging on the drums all day.

Since then she has gone on to become an acclaimed actress, appearing in such geek approved fare as The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Armageddon, Empire Records, That Thing You Do! and The Incredible Hulk (the non-Ang Lee one).

She even took the time to continue the family tradition of spawning with a musician during her relationship with Royston Langdon of 90s one hit wonders Spacehog (make your own Oneder joke here).

In a recent interview, Ms. Tyler stated that she wasn’t very good at dating so there is hope for you yet dear reader(s).  Just don’t bore her with trivial chat about your LOTR Special Edition DVD set or Aerosmith ephemera.

On to the links.

  1. But that one hit was one of my favorites of the 90s.

    I do, however, stand corrected.

  2. Who you calling a one-hit wonder? I mean sure, they had one hit, and were otherwise wonderful…but still.

    FTR: Spacehog put out three great records, front to back, and were a live band most would give their left nut(s) to even aspire to.
