Kasher + Kucinich = Kascinich
For those of you who may know me, I like the music of Tim Kasher (Cursive and The Good Life - brought to the world by Saddle Creek Records). So, I was listening to The Good Life's Album of the Year and I came across an image of Dennis Kucinich while browsing the web - it was either an article on digg or one of those lame "Guess Who This Person Is and Win a Free iPod" ads. As I stared at Dennis's image, I thought to myself, "wow, Tim Kasher and Dennis Kucinich look very similar" (minus the twenty-eight year age difference).
Now, it was quite difficult to visually display their facial similarities because of the age difference and it was hard to find a good picture of Tim - he either has his mouth wide open (singing) or has the full beard, but I was able to find a decent black and white photo. It would have been better if it was a straight on shot of his face, but oh well. I was also able to snag a picture of Dennis from his mayoral days in Cleveland to make their ages fairly close (what would I do without Wikipedia).
In my opinion, they have a similar nose, squinty eyes, and an almost exact hair style. Also, I saw an image of Dennis with his wife and he was wearing a tuxedo that reminded me of the tux Tim wore when I saw Cursive play at the House of Blues. Maybe when I get some time, I'll post those two pictures as well.
Hopefully the descriptions and images I provided help you realize I'm not nuts. Do some image searching yourself and try to find some more similarities. As a reminder, I don't have the comment section up yet, so if you want to send me a message, please go to the contact page.
