And a "situation," eventually. :D

But definitely no bad music.

Roy Dotrice has died at the age of 94. His name isn't exactly a household word, but he was a versatile and prolific character actor, and you may recognize his face:

Since it's baseball playoff season, I can't resist quoting this anecdote from his New York Times obituary about the time Dotrice was the pitcher on a team that included Laurence Olivier at third base and Peter O'Toole at shortstop ... with everyone in tights and puffy shirts:

Looking back on his career in an interview in 1980, Mr. Dotrice recalled one of his more unusual achievements: introducing baseball — learned from Canadian P.O.W.s during the war — to cricket-playing members of his Shakespeare troupe in 1959. He put together an “all-star” team to challenge Americans at a nearby air base.

“Paul Robeson played first base, Sam Wanamaker second and Laurence Olivier third,” he said. “Peter O’Toole was shortstop, Albert Finney was catcher, I pitched and Charles Laughton was umpire. We wore black tights and white Hamlet blouses. The women said, ‘Never mind the game, look at their legs.’”

Oh yeah, the bank robbery scene, and how could I forget the train robbery scene!  :D

I have to watch this movie again sometime soon.

But I'm pretty sure he doesn't drink coffee alone in a diner, and he doesn't object to the music, and he doesn't fire off his six shooters.

Pretty sure Philo never carried a gun, and Bronco Billy only used his in the Wild West show. Also, Bronco Billy would never do something like that, what kind of example would it set for the little pards?

I'm pretty sure there is no Clint Eastwood movie that contains a scene like that. Do you think you could be thinking of some other actor?

On the other hand, I personally have been in that exact situation many times (in diners and other types of restaurants), and if Clint or anyone else would have taken out a gun, shot out the speakers, and then quietly and politely returned to drinking his coffee, I would have been eternally grateful. (Provided, of course, that no one was hurt by the shrapnel.)

Happy Birthday, Schofield Kid!  :)

For once I'm getting this thread started before your birthday is nearly over in Australia ... though last I heard, you were on holiday in Spain! Oh well, it's already your birthday there, as well.  :D

Hope you have a wonderful day!  8)

I think it's more of a matter of needing dark skies to see them ... The sky is too light in the far north in the summer months. But auroras can occur year-round.

I've had thoughts of taking a journey to northern Scandinavia in the winter just to try to see them, but then ... you can never be sure if they're going to show up, and then the sky has to be clear, as well.

In the photos of the bears the fish look almost photoshopped, especially in that top picture!

I was thinking the bears looked natural, but the fish looked photoshopped! :D

Thanks, Matt! Did you make your way through that labyrinth in the first picture from the Shrine of St. Thérèse?

I clicked the link you provided and was awestruck at the first image on the site ... a spectacular view of the shrine under the northern lights. Also, I found out that the second of your pictures shows the columbarium there ... certainly a beautiful place for one's ashes to repose, awaiting the Resurrection.

Or rather, he suggested Clint should "ask the director for another take"! ;D

Fascinating clip with great insight into Clint's working methods (and how Rubinek may have gotten his job thanks to a tip from Jack Nicholson). Much of this is known, but not that bit about how Clint followed Rubinek's advice on Clint's closeup in the saloon shootout scene.

Wow, those are terrific, Matt! How close were you to the action?

I dunno, Matt, I think you ought to try it! You might like it better than regular Vegemite! ;D

Vegemite, or a "posh" variant of it, is brought to the attention of New York Times readers:

MELBOURNE, Australia — Vegemite, the classic condiment found on breakfast tables in every corner of Australia for nearly a century, is going posh.

Bega, manufacturer of the iconic — if divisive — yeast extract spread, released a new and more expensive version of the product this week, raising questions about whether the brand had abandoned its humble roots in favor of a more affluent demographic.
The new variety, Vegemite Blend 17, is sold in achingly artisanal packaging that includes an unnecessary cardboard box, a gold-colored lid and a price tag more than double that of a traditional jar, coming in at 7 Australian dollars, or nearly $5.50.

When asked what happened to blends 1 through 16, Vegemite’s marketing director, Ben Hill, explained: “The name ‘Blend 17’ simply refers to the year 2017 we have released it in.”

Glad to hear you weren't in the area, Doug.

The Onion has run the same story, with slight variations in the details, five times in the past three years:

;D I could tell by looking at that poster that it would be boring ... and here's the summary you get in the Google sidebar when you search it:

Paterson (Adam Driver) is a hardworking bus driver in Paterson, N.J., who follows the same routine every day. He observes the city and listens to fragments of conversations while picking up and dropping off his passengers. Paterson also writes heartfelt poems in a notebook, walks his dog and drinks one beer in a bar after his shift is over. Waiting for him at home is Laura (Golshifteh Farahani), his beloved wife who champions his gift for writing.

Guy doesn't even have the imagination to have a different name from the city where he lives and works. At least he could call himself, oh, I don't know ... William Carlos Williams or something.

I just heard on the radio that his death has now been confirmed.


EDIT: Here is a link to the Billboard story:
