Gillian Anderson as Morticia Addams

Christina Ricci might never have posed as her cinematic mom Morticia Addams, but the wonderful and mysterious Gillian Anderson, did.

Anderson posed as Morticia Addams in 1997 for photographer Mark Seliger for US Magazine. The 1990s, that was the decade The X-Files was very popular.

Personally, I am not waiting on a Addams Family reboot at all, but if one would ever come to pass, Anderson would be a wonderful Morticia.

Here’s another pic of the same session.

Wednesday Grew Up Nicely

Christina Ricci, who played Wednesday Addams in the films from the 1990s, dressed up as her ‘mother’ Morticia Addams. How little Wednesday has grown up nicely.
Ricci starred as Wednesday in The Addams Family in 1991, and again in Addams Family Values in 1995. Anjelica Houston played mommy Addams in these films.

Sadly, this pic that circulated on the web in 2015 appears to be photoshopped.

Oh, well, we can always dream of Ricci playing Morticia in a fictional reboot of the franchise. Besides, plenty of movies in which Ricci stars to watch.

Mushroom Party on Vlieland

My girlfriend and I spent a couple of days on the wonderful island Vlieland. It’s one of the Wadden Islands. It’s rather small with a population of 1,100 people – tourists not included.

The island is lovely and has a great diversity when it comes to nature; you have the North Sea, beaches and dunes, and forests. And, it appeared to showcase a great diversity in mushrooms. It’s a great sign autumn has really arrived, which makes me a very happy camper.
