Every day, we honor a person or moment or crucial element of genre film, literature, and television and we celebrate the glory within. But this month we're dedicating Chosen One of the Day to the reason for the season. And no, we don't mean Halloween.

It's national treasure Jeffrey Lynn Goldblum's birthday on October 22, and thus we at SYFY FANGRRLS have dedicated the entire month to the celebration of our favorite moments, movies, outfits, and noises from this absolute zaddy of a man. (If you don't know what "zaddy" means, Google it, because Jeff Goldblum already knows.)

And what better way to kick off this holiest of months than to highlight the relentless, unyielding sheen of Goldblum's glistening chest in Jurassic Park?

If there's a more iconic shirtless scene, I don't care. Because in the middle of one of the biggest, most beloved box-office smashes of all time, there is a lingering moment wholly devoted to the female gaze. A chest so luminous as to light up a million young libidos like a Lite Brite. A lounge pose so seductive even Laura Dern's practical khaki shorts were no match (the two dated after making the film). The cinematic world was changed. We were changed. Funko Pops even got hot for a minuteJurassic Park will always be lauded for its visual effects and thrills, but no visual thrilled us more than this CGI-free feat.

Draw Jeff like one of your French girls. He's into it.
