Vintage David Duchovny
by M. Lizabeth Currain
I should be doing homework (for that fucking group project) or studying for a quiz on Wednesday…but it’s Sunday and I have more important things to do. Like scour the internet for pictures of this week’s Vintage Crush, David Duchovny!!
David Duchovny as a Vintage Crush is long overdue. I spent the better half of my first semester of graduate school watching every episode of the X-Files. Even the ones without Duchovny (Not worth it!). For the sake of this post, lets just pretend that Duchovny is exactly like his character Fox Mulder. Flawed, but in a way that is beautiful. Emotional, brooding, etc., etc. Ugh! I could go on forever about how much I love the Mulder character. Duchovny did one hell of a job making me fall in love with him. Stupid Scully!
The best part about David Duchovny is that he was hot in the 90’s. Do you know how hard that is to pull off? First, he had to deal with a pretty awful haircut. Second, those 90’s suits and jeans? Not flattering! Yet, he somehow manages to look good in them! There were a lot of things working against him. No matter how hard the 90’s tried, they just couldn’t make him not hot. That’s why he’s a Vintage Crush!
Some basics according to IMDB:
Full Name: David William Duchovny
Born: August 7, 1960 in New York City, New York, USA
Height: 6’1″ (almost) Tall and handsome!
Films/Television: He’s acted in 65 titles. He’s also a writer, director, and producer!
Fun Fact: He went to Princeton. Then he got his Master’s in English Literature from Yale! Then he started a Ph.D. at Yale, but left to pursue acting. According to Wikipedia (the source to rival all other sources), the title to his unfinished doctoral thesis was, “Magic and Technology in Contemporary Poetry and Prose”. I don’t even know what that means…but I bet it was going to be fantastic.
…and, YES. Plus, he has a sex addiction…so that might actually work in my favor!
Seriously, what is not to love about David Duchovny? He’s tall, he’s handsome, he’s super smart. He was in a pretty
terrible awesome romcom called Return to Me. He was also in Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead. This guy is pretty much the best. I also dare anyone to watch The X-Files and not fall in love with him. The whole backstory about his sister and how he is always rescuing Scully…it’s pretty much the best thing that there is. Also, The Red Shoe Diaries…erotic drama series anyone? Twin Peaks! The list could go on and on.
This song is too perfect. And very true…David Duchovny, why don’t you love me?
David Duchovny, hovering above me…sigh.
Have a great night everyone!
