  1. Oh boy. This was a tough one.

     

    Robin Williams's Mork from Ork is the entire foundation for my sense of humor.

     

    Growing up with his work, I was never surprised by the intelligence, emotional resonance, and energy of his performances, both dramatic and comedic.

     

    Just because you are smart, and funny, and fast, does not mean that you cannot be sad or be sensitive. It seems more the sad clowns (il pagliacco) that make us laugh.

     

    He was also never cruel to others with his humor, a mistake that is often made when ordinary blokes think that they are being sooo funny and are typically sooo not, at the expense of other people.

     

    To the kindest comic genius and most generous performer, RIP Mr. Robin Williams. You will be sorely missed.

  2. Yes, yes, yes! It appears that Max will have that sort of covert, late introduction in the film a la Man of Steel. I like the tone (color & theme) very much.

     

    I recently saw Mel's II and III again and was transported by my nostalgia of the first time I watched them. How do I say? I just love me some bad a$$ stunt driving and some early Mel Gibson to boot. :)

     

    But I look forward to Tom Hardy's spin ... now that you mention it though, I enjoyed The Bourne Legacy very much only because of Jeremy Renner (I haven't seen any other Bournes, and of course I've seen The Hurt Locker) and think that would have been interesting casting for Max as well. Hmmm.

  3. Sinn!

     

    I am sorry to hear about your sweet cat, RIP, and your health scare! Yikes!

     

    It is shocking but seems not uncommon that we can walk around feeling okay and unbothered, then suddenly it's "oh we have big problem here!"

     

    Glad it was caught and corrected in time. Feel better soon! :)

  4.  

    I watched the season finale of Grimm last Friday....And I gotta say....What? :blink:

     

    Agreed! I was like, Whaaat?

     

    I do like the new Grimm though - she's cool and obvious necessary if Nick is having an Adalinde-induced problem.

     

    The sunglasses - Monroe explained to Nick and the new Grimm how wesen always know they are Grimms. When wesen volge (sp?) / change, the Grimms' eyes turn into deep, black pools of death and the wesen see their own reflection. Hence, the solution was to wear sunglasses at the wedding with all the wesens guests.

     

    But since Nick forgot his sunglasses after getting it on! with Juli-linde, he borrowed Monroe's Dad prescription bi-focals and the fuzzy hilarity ensued! ;)

     

    I liked the episode and that C. Thomas Howell has been in a little arch there. Cannot believe what happened to Capt. and Wu isthisclose to knowing it's all real! So I love that too!

     

    Hank is becoming my favorite though because that man is just solid! I would definitely want him around to help handle just about anything. He's always providing the practical clever solutions as to explanations etc. for those not in the know. Good cop, good dude.

  5. Thank you for telling us your experiences!!! Mostly good, some not so much (Bruce!?). I love me some vicarious celebrity encounters! ;)

     

    You highlighted some cool folks. Alan Tudyk is an interesting cat and Clifton Collins (who I want to call Gonzalez-Gonzalez) has really, really grown on me :) (Sunshine Cleaning, anyone?) Good stuff all around!!!

  6. I still watch Grimm, only it just moves way too fast this season, with two parallel storylines (the Scooby pack in Portland and the royal baby / Hexen etc in Europe) which will likely collide this week.

     

    I love The Voice and I am obsessed with Hannibal!

  7. Well Maryland is known for its yummy crab cakes and seafood!

     

    There's behind the scenes videos for The Tripper movie where Tom coaches this gal on the correct way to eat prawns or crawfish - something interesting like that - so he's definitely a sea food oficianado! :)

  8. Thank you, Joyce!

     

    And to you and everyone else as well!

     

    It was little tough on a Monday - we enjoyed our corned beef and cabbage Saturday, along with the Ides of March and a full-moon crazy weekend! :blink:

     

    Thursday is Spring already - wow!
