Tough, tough week. First David Bowie, now Alan Rickman.
I’m sorry, Alan, that I’m unable to muster the time today to honor you as much as I would prefer, as much as you deserve.
All I have time to say is that I loved your work, from the first time I saw you in the 1991 film Truly, Madly, Deeply, through Sense & Sensibility, Galaxy Quest, the Harry Potter films, of course, Love Actually and Bottle Shock, just to name a few.
You always rang true, regularly stole scenes, showed us the human flaws in the villains you played, and did it all with panache.
Rest in peace Alan, and thanks for the memories.
A substantive analysis of Star Wars: The Force Awakens!
Also, it points the way to a very real solution for those who disliked the new Star Wars installment but passionately love the franchise.
Simply drink a glass for each suggested wine pairing in this article while re-watching the movie, and I guarantee that you won’t notice all those nitpicky things you complained about the first time.
I’m a HUGE Monty Python fan, and especially a fan of their 1975 film Monty Python & The Holy Grail, as I mentioned in a post this past June.
Today’s Tweet of the Day installment, for obvious reasons then, totally cracked me up!
It reminds me of all those brilliant fake letters from disgruntled viewers interspersed between skits in the Monty Python’s Flying Circus TV series, and truly reads like it was written by the Pythons themselves.
Great news for a change!
And I can think of no other organization that fought longer or harder to oppose the pipeline than 350.org.
They deserve enormous praise and thanks.
As of this writing, 9 people are dead, slaughtered today by a now-dead-as-well gunman at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon.
“I’ll give you my gun when you pry it from my cold, dead hands.”
—A slogan used by gun rights advocates
See, the problem with this statement is that if we wait until a gun owner is dead before we pry their weapon(s) from their rigor mortis hands, there is a very good possibility that the gun owner has already killed people.
