Twelve is the new eleven

I’m a little late with this, but it’s been a hectic New Year already. Anyway, with the Now Playing Podcast Ocean’s Twelve review now online and just waiting for you to download, I wanted to share my failed attempt to recreate the famous Rat Pack photo (again) in 2004.

You have no idea how hard it is to get 11 guys together in a room when there’s nothing in it for them. “Hey, put on a suit and come get your picture taken like the Rat Pack,” didn’t work as well as it did in 2001.

We’re so famous.

So instead of reenacting Ocean’s Eleven we got “Latham’s Seven” standing next to the pool table at (now closed) The Ice House in downtown Las Vegas.

It’s not the Rat Pack, but it’s pretty cool.

Also, thank you to all the listeners who made Now Playing’s Ocean’s Twelve review No. 2 on iTunes in its debut on Thursday. The final review in the Ocean’s retrospective — Ocean’s Thirteen — will be up on Tuesday.
