Further Adventures in Vanity

Later on I hope to have something up about the latest nonscandal enthralling the usual complete tools. In the meantime, click that last link to figure out how I got reminded of the MyHeritage face recognition tool that Jill found last summer.



I am pretty pleased with the results, though less happy to see the bride of Satan in there. Still, not bad for an old broad--and at least it didn't turn up Tor Johnson. Glass houses, stones . . . I used to know a fella who hates Amanda a lot more than you do, Dan, and even he could figure out to put the rock down.

They have Romy Schneider but not Stefania Sandrelli? I keep hoping my 183rd attempt at the software doesn't spit out Kevin Smith or reduced-weight Peter jackson, but I'm not hopeful.

Apparently I did not use the right photo, since it gave me Daniel Day Lewis. Dagnabbit.

Depending on the picture I use, I get either Annette Bening or Sheryl Crow. IRL, I usually get Sigourney Weaver. I get that one a lot. Most recently last September. A couple of times I've gotten Alanis Morrissette and one time I did get Sheryl Crow with darker hair. I've never gotten Annette Bening.

Genni, hover your mouse over that collage to see which celebrity match I left out. And keep in mind that you can see other matches by clicking the little arrows down at the bottom of the gizmo, and also limit your matches by sex, so you get only female results.

It's a little goofy in that it seems to match based on the way you're posed, not just your bone structure. For example, I think I got Patrick Stewart for the arched eyebrows, the set of the mouth, and the straight-on angle of the shot as much as anything else. So maybe that's why you're getting Bening, because I don't think most people would see a resemblance between her and Sigourney Weaver (who is super-fine--lucky you!).

I think there may be a flaw in the software. I got James Spader, Richie Sambora, a couple of guys I had to look up ... and Judi Dench. Is there something I don't know about Judi?

I think I understand this! A photo where I am not smiling, I get Mr. Day Lewis. Smiling, I get Debbie Harry and Debra Messing and, ulp, Susan Sarandon, which is apparently because the computer thinks I'm OLD. But no dudes. This is better.

OK-

1) You look like Patrick Stewart? That's hot, and I don't mean in an ironic "you must be gay" way. I mean-that's hot.

2) If you're going to link to naughty people and the naughty people includes a link to Michelle Malkin, you must warn those of us whose URL hovering thingy is broken. We cannot be giving that Malkin creature traffic. I have to go bleach the inside of my monitor now, are you happy?

3) I look like some misfit named Eddie Kaye Thomas based on the angle of the picture I took. Mass suicide to begin tonight

Wasn't Cleopatra a celebrity in her day?
