Guyliner?

The other evening, I had an interesting conversation with the Beardocrat. It was about the pictured individual, who I liked to call "Mayor of the Town". Many of the people I know have a sick fixation with Lost and so I tease them relentlessly. (I was writing an open letter to the writers of Lost, but I figure that they were probably to busy breaking all the rules of middle school creative writing fundamentals to bother with my humble epistle, so I have yet to post THAT on this blog.) A friend pointed out a hilarious blog that I have been reading in order to supplement my Lost knowledge and I found last week's post about the Mayor of the Town's background to be hysterical. But I digress, the Beardocrat and I were talking and he said that the Mayor of the Town IS a good actor, and I said that he'd been in tons of stuff, but when pressed I could come up with nothing. So today, I journeyed into the depths of IMDB and discovered that Mayor of the Town has a name, and it is Nestor. He starred as the Mayor in the Major Motion Picture Dark Knight.

During my investigations IMDB informed me that his trade mark is "very dark eyes". Why I find that funny... I have no idea he even had the audacity to claim that, " not only does he not wear eyeliner, mascara, or makeup of any kind to make his lashes and eye line appear as dark as they do, but the makeup artists for "Lost" actually use concealer on his lashes and under his eyes to try to tone down the natural darkness of his eye line." He even said his dark lashes caused him much distress as a child... So what is your verdict... guyliner or 'very dark eyes'.

As one of the people who watches LOST religiously, I can honestly say I have never given a second thought Richard/Nestor/Mayor of the Town's eye makeup or lack thereof.

I have obsessed over this man's eyes from the moment I saw him on Lost. There was recently an episode in which the camera focused on his eye, and I am pretty darn sure that there was a visible line under his eye--it was liquid eyeliner. That's how much of a close-up it was.

That being said. His latest performance on Lost was really quite good. I was surprised at his acting capability and at his incredibly believable islander Spanish accent. Now I'm going to look up where he's from--he's got to be Cuban, Dominican, or maybe even from the Canary Islands.

I was right--of Cuban and Catalan decent. And he lived in Caracas for several years. No wonder I thought he had such a perfect accent--it's my accent.

Oh, I hope it's not guyliner.

For his sake.

Did you know that Nestor was a king of Pylos of Peloponneus who in his old age led his subjects to the Trojan war? His wisdom and eloquence were proverbial.

I hate lost. I like the Dark Knight. I think that dude has an interesting look, and possibly guyliner. But hey, who really cares?

I have a friend with similar eyelashes, and he also looks like he wears eyeliner. He doesn't.
