>In response to Medieval Woman‘s desire in the “Readers’ choice” post below, here’s how Bullock gets his 1970s NASA Scientist Dude look (well, as we imagine it — I can’t find a photo of an actual 1970s NASA scientist looking quite like this):
1) Wear these glasses:
(Made by Shuron Ltd.)
2) Cut your hair this short:
3) Grow out this facial hair combination (yes, that’s Seth Bullock from Deadwood, from whom my Bullock gets his pseudonym):
4) And add longish but not extreme sideburns, a bit like “Greg” on CSI (though Bullock’s are fuzzier):
And voila! You have a guy with 1950s hair and glasses who’s trying to be cool with 1970s facial hair — in other words, a 1970s NASA scientist. (Pocket protector and short-sleeved shirt + tie combo not necessary. Please.) And in 2007, it’s a perfect pomo pastiche of a look.
