Sizzle With a "B"

The letter B hadn't even finished forming in my brain before I knew what I would write about - - BACON!  Duh!  Who doesn't love bacon?  I could hear the sizzle and smell the hickory smokiness and see the grease staining the paper towels - okay, that part isn't very appetizing.  But, still, it's bacon! 

But the weird thing is - - I don't want to write about bacon bacon.  I want to write about Kevin Bacon.  I know he isn't technically a food, but humor me.  He's the bacon that popped into my mind, so he's the bacon that stars in the blog.

I like Kevin Bacon.   I don't love Kevin Bacon.  Not like I love bacon bacon.  I liked Kevin Bacon in "A Few Good Men," and "Tremors" - the first one.  He was kind of adorable as that dorky rednecky kind of guy.  And I really liked/hated him in "The River Wild."  I wanted to hit him with an oar and knock him into the river.  I looked at Kevin Bacon's filmography.  He's been in a zillion movies, most of them I've never heard of. 

The one thing about Kevin Bacon that I really don't understand is this:   Why do girls think he is so good looking??  I really don't think he's cute.  I mean, let's be honest - - he has some appeal just because of his name.  Cuz really, how can you go wrong with the name Bacon?  Seriously, even if you were hideously ugly and had BO and no teeth, when people hear your name, they're going to smell bacon and lust after bacon, and the hideously ugly, smelly, toothless person named Bacon won't seem so bad.  That's the beauty of bacon bacon.  It's an equalizer.

And, just in case you were wondering, I don't think Kevin Bacon is hideously ugly.  He probably doesn't even have BO.  I just don't think he's very cute.  I do, however, have a sudden craving for a BLT while I watch a KBM (Kevin Bacon movie).

  2. mmmmm....bacon! Have you listed to Kevin Bacon's music? Curious what that would add to your "what's the draw?" question. I like The Bacon Brothers quite a bit.

  6. Seriously, my mouth was drooling over the first mention of bacon. Lol And Kevin Bacon is good looking, but he's not gorgeous. Now, Hugh Jackman is gorgeous. Lol

  7. Ok, I've seen tremors but didn't like it - so now I'm not sure if I like Kevin Bacon. Of course, the reason I didn't like tremors was because I thought it was going to be some sort of Jane Austen type of story, and it seriously wasn't. In retrospect, I suppose the title should have given me a hint.

    Anyway............. ;-)

  8. Ahhh yes, good old bacon. Good old Kevin. My husbands name was Calvin and many people thought it was Kevin. Never thought of Kevin Bacon at the time. OMG, I was sleeping with KB. A fun post. :)

  9. Six degrees of Kevin Bacon: I am very good friends with a woman who taught Ron Howard's daughter Bryce. He directed Apollo 13. Kevin Bacon was in Apollo 13.
    I adore bacon. I especially craved it when I was pregnant. It goes with savory and even sweet.
    I very much like the first "Tremors". I'm not sure what makes Kevin attractive. It really isn't fair that men can be not so good looking and still be attractive. Such is life.

  11. Haha, I admit the first thing I thought of when your post title popped up in my feed was BAR-B-QUE!

    Not exactly Kevin Bacon. And I don't think he's cute.

  12. Thanks for visiting me thanks to A-Z! Have you heard of the game 6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon? That's a funny one that even Kevin has spoofed. I don't think he's good looking but he is very funny and very self deprecating too. As for actual bacon, to answer your question: My boyfriend doesn't like it!! Can you believe it??

    1. JoJo, I can't imagine any man not liking bacon! But, more for the rest of us, I guess :) Thanks for stopping by!

  13. Okay, so he's not classically good looking, but he's got a kind of cocky swagger. Besides, he can dance!

    But really, bacon bacon is where it's at!

    1. Janna, I think the classic look is overrated :). He does have a cute smile, I'll give him that.

  14. I'm with you on the not thinking he's the cutest.. The size of his nostrils are what kills it for me.. And the fact that they're just like sorta' right there in your face.. But.. I do like his movies for the most part and he seems like an okay guy from interviews. I like his wife better tho. :)

    1. MiMi, his nostrils didn't strike me one way or the other, but I see the point - haha

  15. Tremors is one of my favorite movies of all time. I've seen it about 200 times. I didn't think anyone else knew about it. Don't forget about Footloose - it's amazing. I refuse to watch the new one. It just isn't right to remake Footloose.

    Also, in regards to bacon bacon - you've really got to try an avocado, bacon & cheese omelet. It's delish!

    1. Jaime, we have all three Tremors movies but I do think you're a bigger freak (in the most complimentary way) than I am :)

  16. YOu are too funny! I am with you on the Kevin Bacon scene -- nowhere near my type but there is another Kevin that I like but I can't remember the rest of his name right now. As for the stuff you cook up? Yummy - though I very seldom have it - but the best?? In the summer with fresh tomatoes from the garden on WW bread --

    1. Anything from the garden is GREAT with avocado - especially tomatoes :). If you think of that other Kevin, let me know.!

  19. Stopping by, courtesy of the A to Z challenge, from my art blog. You have such a fun writing style-- I love the "bacon" on the side of this blog!

    Not the Kevin Bacon, mind you. I don't have anything against him, but I'm not really a huge fan.

    Anyway, your profile is fabulous. I love your self-description!

  21. I loved "Footloose" as a teenager, but I never thought KB was cute. Attractive in a way, but cute? Not so much. I still love him. Just watched "Apollo 13" in part because of KB. But also Tom Hanks, and Gary Sinise.....a winning combination!

  22. Kevin Bacon - not cute. Bacon bacon - very attractive!

  23. I saw Kevin Bacon once on a late-night talk show saying that he had been asked numerous times throughout his life if "Bacon" was a stage name and his answer was, "Bacon? Really? If I made up a name, why would I choose Bacon?" I think if he read your post, he might have a different outlook on it.

    Also, I've never found him particularly attractive, but he definitely has a guy-next-door sort of appeal. And he's surprisingly versatile in the roles he has taken over the years. In the early eighties, he briefly played "Tim Werner" on Guiding Light. As a rabid GL fan, I've always followed his career 'cuz I "knew" him when.

    What are your thoughts on bacon (not Bacon) and chocolate? Haven't tried it, but it's showing up in more and more places.
