Mark Hamill turned 61 yesterday, the same age that Alec Guinness was when filming began on the first Star Wars film.

They don’t really look any different. In fact, Jeff Bridges’ hair has never looked better!

HA! Yeah, I’ve gotten a few reactions that folks didn’t really see what I’d done at first glance. My wife even said, “Well, I’ve seen his hair that thick and wavy, so what’s the big deal?”

For my money, it’s the small bit of bushy sideburn on Jolie’s swapped face that gives it away.

Best gifs ever. Alas, I, too, have a ‘toy room’ aka my former living room! Is Old Lady Ben Grimm your new character?

Thanks! When we first moved into our house, that room was my “den”. My movie posters still hang in there, but that’s about all the resemblance to a “den” that it’s retained.

THIS MADE ME SPRAY THE CRUMBS OF FRITOS ALL OVER MY DESK.

seltzerlizard replied to your link: Hugh Grant talks briefly about his role as - among other things - a killing, raping cannibal 2000 years in the future in the Wachowskis’ CLOUD ATLAS.

Oh tell me the book is well worth reading, because I shelved it after that interminably boring first part but I’m looking for anyone to tell me it’s actually as good and or strange as it’s supposed to be.

You make a good point - that first part is tough to get through, but it doesn’t last long. You probably know that the narrative spans many different periods of history and extends thousands of years into the future. That first part, which I think takes place in 1850-something, has very little action but lays in place some important elements that will echo throughout the novel. I actually found that the first part was ramping up nicely right when it abruptly ended and time-jumped forward.

But to be clear: I would call the entire novel worth reading, but not life-changing literature. Its ambitious nature and the clever ways it links together the central characters do provide enough forward motion and intrigue. Each era in the book has its own voice, which I found interesting and compelling. Some of the characters are quite well written, although I’m worried that the Wachowskis will give the novel’s best part to Halle Berry, which would be a shame.

So, to answer your question more succinctly than those couple hundred words above: It’s good. It’s strange. It’s worth reading.

seltzerlizard replied to your photo: So this happened somewhere along the weekend. …

Did you say anything when you filmed yourself for that gif? It looks like you’re mouthing the word ‘blue’. Perhaps it was something ruder. :)

It was either “bloop” or “poop” or “the individual is defined only by his relationship to the world and to other individuals; he exists only by transcending himself, and his freedom can be achieved only through the freedom of others. he justifies his existence by a movement which, like freedom, springs from his heart but which leads outside of himself.”

It was kind of a strange morning.

Aquaman finally puts his powers to practical use.
(by the way, if you’ve never browsed through seltzerlizard’s i was bored tag, there’s probably something wrong with you.)

I’m not gonna lie, I honestly want her to work more. I do love me some Keira Knightley.

If she made a movie of her reading the phone book, I’d not only watch it, I’d get it on Blu-ray. I do not require great acting talent from Keira Knightley. Hollywood history is well populated with such women, and not always for the worse. :)

All respect, gentlemen, but I can’t join you there. To me she’s scrawny and lifeless (see also: Stewart, Kristen). I feel like I can hear the wind whistling out of that petulantly, perpetually, open mouth.

seltzerlizard answered your question: A brain worm thought occurred to me today about movies and marketing.

Advance Commando Team In Oil Nation!, Patricia Orlin: Registered Nurse. You’ve unleashed a dangerous meme, sir!

NICE.
