Irene Lew

Oh dear.

So earlier I made that post about Tabitha Soren, and I said she was my first “legitimate” celebrity crush. That got me thinking – if Tabitha Soren was my first legit crush, who was my first “illegitimate” crush?

Honestly, it didn’t take me that long to figure it out: Irene Lew, the love interest of the blue ninja dude in the Ninja Gaiden video game for the NES (she’s illegitimate because she’s made of pixels).

I must say – it’s kind of ridiculous how much she looks like Tabitha Soren.

Hmm…. no one would treat Tabitha Soren like that though.

Tabitha Soren is on Facebook

Tabitha Soren, my first legitimate celebrity crush and the best thing that ever happened to MTV, is on facebook. She’s been out of the public eye for a long time now and doesn’t seem to be using facebook for either networking or self-promotional purposes, so I won’t add her as a friend. I bet that it’s weird for her when people do that.

I was reminded of Soren a couple of months ago, when my buddy Nathan told me that our friend Jess had recently run into her at a Peet’s Coffee in Berkeley. I guess she doesn’t live in France anymore. I would have been glad to have run into Tabitha Soren at a Peet’s Coffee in Berkeley — or anywhere.

One time I met Michael Stipe on a plane.

Anyway, this is an interview that Soren conducted with Tupac back in 1995. Unfortunately, it’s grainy:
