Hey Boys: Check out the movie "The Blue Bicycle"AllisonHayes

Forget about the CC chick, check out Latitia Casta. Latitia means joy in Latin. I am sure this movie will become a favorite to everyone here.

I think Spirito really donated his blue cavalera to Latitia...

Laetitia Casta starred in La Bicyclette Bleu (The Blue
Bicycle), a three-part made-for-French TV movie
set in World War II France.

Born the 11th of May, 1978, Laetitia Casta is the
middle child to father Dominique and mother Line.
Dominique, raised on the island of Corsica, moved
to Normandy where he met Laetitia's mother.
Laetitia (which means 'joy' in Latin) enjoyed
drawing and writing stories at an early age, and
admits that she was quite a daydreamer in grade
school.

Although she surprisingly didn't attract many
males while in school and recalls feeling awkward
and self-conscious, her luck began to change at
age 15. Casta was discovered by a photographer
and an agent from an important Paris modeling
agency, Madison Models, while on a beach near
Corsica.

After her father finally agreed to the agency taking
some test photos of Laetitia, it took the founder of
Madison Models no time to see Casta's
unmistakable potential; she didn't even need the
help of makeup or nice clothes, as she came to the
photo shoot in jeans and a t-shirt. Laetitia's career
took off when the extremely busy director of the
French edition of Elle was also impressed by
Laetitia's looks.

Modeling contracts and appearances in magazines
quickly ensued. In search of another star, Paul
Marciano -- founder and art director of Guess? and
credited for the success of Claudia Schiffer -- was
immediately taken by Casta's perfection. Thanks to
Marciano, Americans had the luxury of getting
acquainted with Casta for her work in the Guess?
ad campaign. Her work as the Guess? Girl was her
debut advertising campaign.

Next came her work with Victoria's Secret, in 1996.
Casta graced many covers of the Victoria's Secret
catalog, featured as one of the Angels, the name
attributed to the other four models of the company.

In 1997, Casta joined the ranks of fellow models by
appearing in the popular Sports Illustrated
swimsuit edition, for a total of three consecutive
years.

One year later she was honored by Rolling Stone,
who named her the hottest model of the year, and
placed a nude Casta on the cover of their 'Hot'
issue. Although this was not the first time the
magazine had featured a nude celebrity on the
cover, it was considered the most controversial
issue.

In addition to Rolling Stone, Casta has graced the
pages of many magazines, including the Italian
edition of Glamour; Vogue; and Cosmopolitan, to
name a few.

Guess? and Victoria's Secret weren't the only
modeling contracts signed by Casta. She became a
spokesperson for the cosmetics company L'Oreal in
1998, following the paths of fellow model Kate
Moss and actress Jennifer Aniston.

One of the biggest highlights of Casta's career is
her relationship with designer Yves St. Laurent. The
designer has considered Casta an inspiration since
1998, and consequently the outfits Casta wears to
public appearances are all personal Yves St. Laurent
creations.

Her appearance in the exclusive Pirelli calendar --
considered a collector's item because of the
beautiful shots of only the best photographers --
can also be considered one of Casta's
accomplishments. The 1999 issue, themed "Women
Through the Decades", features Casta as
representative of the women of the 1950s.

As if an illustrious modeling career wasn't enough,
Casta has also taken her talents to the big screen in
her feature film debut -- 1999's Astérix and Obélix
-- the most expensive French film ever made,
co-starring Gerard Depardieu and Oscar winner
Roberto Benigni.

You might need some discipline.

Go to your room and watch Mullholland Drive.

Ms. Casta, myself, and my video camera will join you shortly.

BWAHAHAHAHA!

we need to get more heroin for alison.

using my exemplary detective skills first thing in the morning i have found out that our new and much appreciated fellow subversive allisonhayes is not who we may think!!!!

if you break down the handle it is evident that it is secret web code and that they are trying to lure us toward it by porn as well (at least "they" are fair and offer something of value) - double entrapment. ill spell it out (its in the name) AL - IS - ON - H. -- A(h) - YES.

my advice fellow scribes is to stay well wide of this poster as im sure you will see this thread withdrawn as "they" see that we know what "they'e" up to and have blown the cover of "their" ring.

is it not suspicious that a few days ago "all your base are ours" mysteriously turned up on this site after a long hiatus. surely its a secret code .....

what? me? paranoid? ill explain in code

Secret decoder ring?Ahimsa
Apr 17, 2002 5:47 AM
You can't be certain that these people are involved.
Obviously the conspiracy runs even deeper than that.
Under orders from the top they use codes to subvert.

Attempts to decode these messages have failed.
Recieving signals via posts is rendered impossible.
Even those deep within the plot are going underground.

Probable suspects are being interviewed.
Already they have arrested the scapegoats.
Release for information is what was offered.
All of them plead the fifth of course.
No lawyers were allowed in until after the interrogation.
Obviously there are government officials involved.
Informants are everywhere within the regime anyway.
Desperate for a way out, they made fatal mistakes.

Suppose for a minute that there were a conspiracy.
Possibly even perpetuated by yours truly.
I could be involved and you would never know.
Reading my post carefully for clues could prove fruitful.
Intuition and a good eye for patterns is all you'd need.
Trouble is, most would see the forest, but not the trees.
Only the most clever detective will find the truth.

Cheers!

Last I heard...Ahimsa
Apr 17, 2002 6:21 AM
...he was running guns out of south Florida into a small island near St. Croix buried under bottles of high SPF sunblock.

The exchange is the most bizzare thing you never heard of. Apparently the guns all get turned over to a huge buck toothed Samoan named "Bunny" Cheshire, and our guy gets a dollar for dollar equivalent in Virgin Islands rum.

What's really crazy is that rum is so cheap down there that he needs a damned trash barge to get the stuff home again where he distributes it to various collectors of tiki culture paraphenalia for use in home bars and backyard luas (sort of a Hollywood cult thing he says).

Anyway, turns out these well to do modern day suburban natives pay a premium for anything they can't get at the corner liqour store, and so his profits margins are outrageous. High enough to afford to grease the hands of every politicio along the way. Including the refuse department for this tiny island which ships garbage off shore to the mainland anyway.

Now for the really weird part. "Bunny" has ties to a whole network of island type strong men that want to corner the US market on island grown coconuts. Coconuts for christ sake! They need the guns to muscle all the locals and ensure that the big whig coconut producers don't go gettin' any funny ideas.

Haven't you noticed the price of imported coconuts has gone up recently? I checked it out and it's true. I figured, Hell, I'll just stick with domestic coconuts, but the flavor isn't quite the same you see. No big deal for me of course 'cause I drink Singapore slings. But...

Guess who it IS a big deal to? You bet. Those tiki fanatics back in the states who will only use imported island grown coconuts in their pina coladas. So it comes full circle back to those poor slobs.

What a scam!

He says he might get full into the coconut thing as well if Bunny turns out to be a success. I said i might join him.

Cheers!

i think i have finally found my father-in-law, mentor, sage, poet, visionary and demi-god (not to be confused with glace).

in the man that calls himself A. we have a benign blend of wordsworth, burroughs and miller. throw in enough political acumen to have naom chomsky tongue tied and hopelessly without opinion.

genius - no less.

ahimsa even i would hold your hand at the movies without shame - of course not in a gay way or anything but like a son with an assured father guiding him through the virtue's of existence and in fatherly honor and in the spirit you have instilled in me i will tonite count and name each strand of hair on my girlfriends "V" before massaging her with imported cocnut butter. i hope to broadcast it live for you but cant find that damn VGA adapter.

you THE man! and sadly there is no natural succesor...which is why we need an Ahimsa page so we can appreciate what we are fortunate to have.

it was cervantes that quoted "the road is better than the inn" but unlucky cervantes obviously never had a chance to knock back slings with our man A.

We have an icon of female perfection to inspire all who ride. Those quads! That full rib cage! Latitia must climb like an angel! What exquisite form she has. And, of course, the perfect heroine in Spirito's breakthrough movie.
