  1. My favorite time of year! Probably because I live in the South where our Summer days tend to feel like you're being smothered slowly by a 100-ton wet sponge that's been heated to 100 degrees.
  2. YEP! Big fan. Mr. Hawkins' vids are always interesting and I love how he doesn't take himself too seriously, a trait I share and fully endorse.
  3. "No woman ever slept with me and lived!!" :D
  4. The first R-rated movie I saw in the theater was Excalibur. I was 16.
  5. Yes it is!! That is great news, thank you so very kindly for sharing,me Bruddah!!
  6. I loved him in everything he did, from his hilarious Dr. Necessiter in The Man With Two Brains to Captain James Sawyer in Horatio Hornblower: Retribution. An amazing actor with incredible presence. RIP, sir.
  7. Owner: No no! She's pining! Mr. Praline: She's not pinin'! She's passed on! This Queen is no more! She has ceased to be! She's expired and gone to meet her maker! She's a stiff! Bereft of life, She rests in peace! If you hadn't nailed her to the Throne, She'd be pushing up the daisies! Her metabolic processes are null!! She's off the Throne! She's kicked the bucket, She's shuffled off Her mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisibile! THIS IS AN EX-QUEEN!!! (pause) Owner: Well, I'd better replace it, then. (he takes a quick peek behind the counter) Sorry squire, I've had a look 'round the back of the shop, and uh, we're right out of Queens. Mr. Praline: I see. I see, I get the picture. Owner: I've got a Charles. (pause) Mr. Praline: Pray, does it rule? Owner: Nnnnot really, no. Mr. Praline: WELL HE'S HARDLY A REPLACEMENT THEN IS HE??!!
  8. The Phantom Of The Open with one of my new favorite actors, Mark Rylance. Go watch it, it's great!
  9. I love Rowe's podcast, too! I also love Rick Beato so this was a real treat for me. Thank you.
  10. The Outfit with Mark Rylance. Simply outstanding! Mr. Rylance is very quickly becoming one of my top favorites.
  11. An intriguing series on HBO Max called The Rehearsal. The host (Nathan) of the show is contacted by people who want to break difficult confessions to friends and or family but are afraid of making it worse so he arranges for the person to rehearse their confession a few times so it will go more smoothly. Recommended!
  12. Such a sweet, sweet lady. My interactions with her on this board were always cool and I could "see" her wonderful heart just by reading her posts. I will be praying for her family and friends that they all persevere with grace, as I'm sure she would want that. Until we meet again, Sweet Donna!
  13. You just reminded me of one of my favorite songs! https://youtu.be/Qhy6SZf_3Gk
  14. This! It's both informative and funny. I needed a little "mental comfort food" after Don Quixote! https://books.google.com/books?id=lPptAwAAQBAJ&printsec=frontcover&source=gbs_ge_summary_r&cad=0
  15. I had been building a block and bell tree since two years ago and finally finished it yesterday when the mounting clamp for my agogo bells arrived!! I will try and post some pics.
  16. Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka was just perfect. I think she brought real weight and dignity to the character and was super-respectful to the source material. Now, the big question is, does this spring from the fact that I love Rosario Dawson to begin with? Why yes, yes it does! Regardless, I think you'll really dig The Mandalorion.
  17. I love your profile pic! I'm a huge fan of Ol' Doomrooster myself!
  18. That Hamilton Woman, featuring the great Laurence Olivier portraying the hero Lord Admiral Horatio Nelson!
  19. Sarcasm? No, not even a little. All one has to do is step back and look at the bigger picture that tells us Kathleen Kennedy actively hates the original Star Wars characters and is on a veritable quest to either kill or minimize them in some way in order to bring the new characters to the fore. Granted, The Mandalorian is great and I love it, but that's the only exception to the rule. I also am in no way trying to hurt your enjoyment of the show. As I told a friend that happens to love it the other day: "it'd be a boring old world if we all loved the same stuff!" Have a good day, Buddy!
  20. It's good to hear you survived. Staying hydrated will help you avoid a repeat!
  21. I am HATING Kenobi! Since when did he become such a cowardly little b*tch??!! The writers of the show obviously hate the character and are destroying him before our very eyes! Bastards.
  22. My wife wanted me to take her to the craft store last Saturday. I said sure because a new music store had just opened right next to it. I dropped her off at Joanna's and I went to the music store. I scored a pair of Meinl solid oak bongo drums and they sound amazing! especially when I play them with brushes or mallets. The best part is that they were only $50. I'm sure Guitar Center would have wanted twice that if not more.
