Re: Fangirly squeeage


Hey they even let Sarah Palin's speech loose on us Brits!! Seriously, could they have got anyone with a more irritating voice to stand for Vice President?!?!

Anyway. I found my Busmans Holiday DVD!!!!! I knew I hadn't lost it but I couldn't remember where I'd put it!!! I'm so excited. Not my favourite by a long shot but there's something terribly exciting about the line "Arrr, funny, innit??!" And besides, young Bobster, pirate voice... I mean what's not to love?? He was even allowed to retain full ownership of the rufflable fuzz monsters (aka The Eyebrows) for the duration of the film without some evil swine in makeup waxing them to oblivion a la Jamaica Inn!!!!! Le sigh (so exciting I had to say it in French!)...

I'm moving house in... erm... three hours and ten minutes. I know, why am I on the internet when I should be starting to pack (I didn't know I was moving until the day before yesterday!). Anyway, I just had to tell you all - I'm chuffed because now's I've FOUND my Busman's Holiday DVD that means I can spend a glorious few days before my sister moves in watching all my Bobster movies in uninterrupted bliss!!!! Yayyy!!!!

I'll be all Robert Newtoned out...... *gazes off distractedly for several minutes* oooh...!!!! You know when you've been Newtoned!!!

Can we have this as a new verb in the Bobster dictionary?? To be Newtoned. I'm not sure what it means exactly - but by golly it sounds good!!!!!!


ETA: Just attempted to bankrupt myself on eBay bidding on more Newton films (it's an illness, this Newton addiction, I tell you!). Was delighted to discover that in one of the films I've bidded on (Farewell Again), Bobbie's girlfriend is called Elsie Wainwright - meaning she has the same surname as yours truly!!!!!! Well... I haven't seen the film before so I just hope she isn't a discredit to the name and doesn't do the dirty on the Bobster...

Re: Fangirly squeeage


Don't get me started on politics! I saw about two seconds of Sarah Palin's speech and switched the channel. Stephen Colbert sums up my thoughts on on the subject much better than I could here. (If these clowns get elected for another four years, that's it, I'm defecting. *headdesk* Can you use another roommate? Where are we moving to, BTW? emoticon)

Oh, to answer your question, why, yes, he almost picked someone with a more irritating voice: Lucky VP charm Joe Liebermann.

So are you all moved? Are you Newtoned yet by the rufflable fuzz?

Sorry, I can't answer your question about your kinswoman in "Farewell Again" without spoiling it. You'll see ...

It sure grates on the ear, doesn't it?

I feel the same about our soon-to-be-ex-president. I turn both of them off or turn the sound off whenever they come on. Sarah's boss is kinda irritating too. He calls everyone "my friends". Well, I am NOT "his friend"! He totally lost me when he flipflopped on waterboarding; after being very insistant that it is torture, all of a sudden he decided that it is NOT torture after all!

I better shut up; I can keep going for HOURS about those jerks! I am happy I am not an American!

posticon Re: Fangirly squeeage


Wasn't quite sure where to put this...
I remember that some time ago we were discussing some of Bob's vocal recordings. So, last night I went to the iTunes online store and typed in Robert Newton's name. To my utter shock and delight, some of his voice recordings are available (including "To Coy His Mistress" ...swoon!)
Sir Cedric Hardwicke (another gifted actor with a fine voice!) is also on this album. The poems are not all correctly marked when stating who is reading, so make sure that you listen to a sample of the poem before buying it.
Also, The Derelicts, the episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents that he appeared in, is available too!
Cheers!

Wow, hard to believe those are available on iTunes, of all places! Cool! "To His Coy Mistress" is my favorite. *double swoon* I don't have an iPod (or whatever you need to download iTunes), but here are the titles of the other poems Bob reads on that album, if those are at least labelled correctly:

Love
Hope
Prayer
Sighs and Grones
Jordan
On the Countess Dowager of Pembroke
No Platonique Love
The Flaming Heart
Beauty

Land sakes! Where is everyone? I hope all is well...
It's getting to be that time of year when I'll have to break out my copies of The Baker of Barnbury and The Orphan's Christmas (from the LJS Series)!

Sorry ... I'm on a new medication that makes me really tired all the time; I've been lazy about updating the site again!

Will definitely have to watch those to set the mood for the holidays! Right now, I'm sort of in panic mode. I can't believe it's almost Christmas ... again. It seems to get here faster every year!

Anyway, happy holidays everyone!
