this and that

Each year I appreciate the TCM Remembers montage that recalls the actors/directors/screenwriters and other film professionals who passed during the year. I found this to be a very poignant one indeed. Here's TCM Remembers 2011:




In other news...

* Huge thanks to everyone who has sent me cards this holiday season! I've been loving them, and I appreciate your thoughtfulness.

* China Glaze (my favorite brand of nail polish!) will have a whole new collection available in March inspired by The Hunger Games! (For those of you who don't mind TMI, my favorite manicure look this year is China Glaze's Sea Spray beneath Black Mesh Crackle.)

* Some of the Joss Whedon acafen among you may find this call for papers of interest: Call for Papers: Joss Whedon and Theology.

* Happy early birthday wishes to tuilelindowen, whswhs, arkhamdenizen, irisbleufic, internet_sampo, cyloran, and mamomo. May all of you enjoy wonderful birthdays and terrific years to come!

You know, one of the books I have on my Kindle waiting for me is Faith and Choice in the Works of Joss Whedon by K. Dale Koontz. I'm glad you reminded me of this, because I had opened it to take a peek and so I lost the little "new" tag that the Kindle displays. The introduction is good; I can tell you that.

I haven't read that cover-to-cover in order, but I did go through portions of it when writing my essay for The Philosophy of Joss Whedon, and I remember getting a lot out of it. I'd be interested to know what you think of it, and if it lives up to its introduction.

Thanks for posting the TCM video. I hadn't heard about Edward Hardwicke passing. He was a great Watson, and I loved him in so many movies, like Lady Jane. Same with John Woods, who was so good in that film, along with Ladyhawke and Wargames.

My pleasure! I was so very, very sad about Edward Hardwicke. I hadn't realized about John Woods until I saw this; you're right, he was wonderful, too! Lots of great ones to remember this year.

Oh. that is lovely. And there were a few, like David Nelson, who I hadn't heard had died.

Isn't it? And I know what you mean - several names took me by surprise, too.

I kinda had to share this with you because, you know, I just did:

Photobucket

(I gakked it from killerweasel. Not sure where she got it.)

Loved Virginia's reindeer games this year! I think your fascination with a certain YA dystopia might had something to do with it, no?

Aw, I'm so glad you liked it. :D We were grateful to Virginia for giving us just the expression we were hoping for... ;)

*blushes* Whatever gave you that idea? *tries to look innocent and fails utterly* LOL!
