Happy Birthday, Leonard Nimoy!

leonardMr. Nimoy, actor, film director, photographer, singer, poet, and our dear Mr. Spock, is 82 today, God bless him!Leonard_Nimoy_02Leonard Nimoy’s Mr. Spock was really my first fandom. I’d liked things here and there throughout my childhood, but when dad first introduced me to Mr. Spock a few years ago, I just, well, “fell in love.” 😉 What can I say? He’s great!spock

I don’t know exactly what it is, but, occasionally, in some of his more recent pictures, he reminds me of my Pappy – and whoever reminds me of my Pappy is immediately one of my favorite people in the world, because my Pappy is my hero!leonard-nimoy-

And last but not least, I’d like to send somewhat late birthday wishes to Williams Shatner whose birthday was on Friday. I love the fact that these two men were born so close to each other, and that they were such wonderful friends and still are!shatner nimoy

ME appreciation post

This is my post to appreciate ME… no, not me, MEmichael emersonYeah, that’s right, that ME, Michael Emerson.

The one who’s famous for playing serial killers on several shows…killerBenjamin Linus from LOST…benAnd my personal favorite and his current wonderful role, Mr. Finch from Person of Interest…dont mind meWhile he is not my very favorite actor, he is definitely in the top five.

I think my favorite thing about ME has to be his beautiful relationship with his wife, Carrie. I have only seen a few marriages as wonderful as theirs, and it is really a great thing! Not to mention that they are entirely cute together! 😀me-cp

And really, how can you not love that face? No really, please tell me I’m not only one who sees the resemblance between him and a mixed-breed puppy in the pet shop window.

huggableIf I ever meet Mr. Emerson he’d better be prepared for an…attack hugThis picture may be my favorite of him… I don’t know for sure, because I like them all, but…tumblr_mi3amryNdF1r0laizo1_1280All I can say about this is…tumblr_mjye6oVhDu1s7acrmo2_500Alright, enough of this silliness! 😀02

Sad news…

So, I had something of an internet tragedy today. I discovered that somehow I lost ALL of the pictures I ever used on this blog and everything has to be redone, which is bad because I don’t still have most of those pictures. Maybe it was my fault, or the computer’s or maybe Finch hacked me, but somehow it happened.

Sadly, now I have to go back and delete most of my previous posts. So what I’m trying to say here is that I’ll be re-posting a few things, and most of my previous posts are gone….so I’m basically making a new blog on here…

Yeah, and I’m none to happy about all this, of course…tumblr_mjkrccc9y11s81gjjo1_1280d

I think it’ll all be alright, kinda fun turning over a new leaf, but….but….it’s just so saaaaaad!!!!

sad

Sigh… sniffle

I need a hug…need a hug

The multifarious talent and gorgeousness of Basil Rathbone

To borrow a phrase from NeveR, creator of The Great Baz http://thegreatbaz.wordpress.com/ , I would like to take a moment to sit back and appreciate the multifarious talent and gorgeousness of Basil Rathbone.

I mean really, what’s not to like?thegreatbazBasil seemed, as far as I can tell, to be a lovely person in every way. I have not heard a bad thing said about him. He seems to have been kind, gentle, gracious, giving, funny, clever, long suffering, charming, loving, gentlemanly, and romantic, but Basil was no sissy. I remember reading sometime, somewhere, something along the lines of a young lady actress who had worked with him saying she’d never seen him get angry, but she had a great respect, almost like holy fear, of ever crossing his line of tolerance, which by all accounts, seemed to be far more lenient than most.

And what about his amazing physical characteristics?rathbone

I mean, will you look at that profile?basil-rathboneSometimes, when I’m in a silly mood, I like to joke with my mom about how God decided to be nice to all us ladies and make Basil the perfect man. 😉 Or at least perfect for me, until I get a husband! 😀basil-rathbone_o

I recently read about a play that Basil was in, called J.B., which was a “modernization” of the Book of Job. Basil, at first, played the character of Mr. Zuss (“God,”) but eventually moved to the roll of Nikolas (Satan.) I simply cannot decide whether Basil would be better at playing Satan or “God”…god

 “God?”satan

Or Satan?

He has the right “glory” and power in his voice to play God, his poise, his regal air, and the splendor of his person also lead me to thinking he’d be really good, but I also think he’d do a smashing job playing Satan – his ability to look so cruel and evil, yet somehow you are still attracted to him, and, again, his voice would be good for the part. I just don’t know. What do you think?

Well, enough of that. One last Basil gif, for all your viewing pleasure! 😀basil-rathbone-o

Sigh… there’s nothing like a flirty old man… 😀

Goodbye all!smiley

 P.S. Might I also add my reaction upon hearing the news that Philip Jackson, Pauline Moran, and Hugh Fraser will ALL be returning for The Big Four, AND that Sherlock season 3 has started filming?whaat

 happy benny

Yeah, can I just say that my little fangirl soul is slightly starved? 😉

New York, New York

After this, that, and the other thing (and not all entirely pleasant) which delayed us for about a year, I finally got to New York City for the first time on Sunday.oh yeahIt was just…amazing. All the smells, sights, and sounds, it was a major sensory overload. I can’t describe to you just how it took my breath away, I’ve never seen anything like it! It was a great time with some family I don’t get too see often as well.

I was kinda bummed that I didn’t see anything Person of Interest, but I saw enough NYPD cars and security cameras to make up for it. 😀 By the way, it’s no wonder Finch can see everything, there’s a ruddy camera on the corner of every building!IMG_1874Anyway, here are some of my favorite pictures that I took, for you to see! 🙂IMG_1941some really cool reflective building!IMG_1889I learned that Broadway is not a theater, but a street.IMG_1926FUSCO’S CAR!!!!! I feel so safe!IMG_1922 A church in China Town, which I thought was VERY cool!IMG_2017Another picture of the reflective building!IMG_1955“The flag still stands for freedom, and they can’t take that away!” IMG_2016Oh, I don’t know, just a shot of the skyline. IMG_1975I don’t know why, but for some reason I’ve loved Bob Costas ever since I was a kid, and of course I love the Olympics too.

It was all just SO amazing!
