One more silly Facefuk post:
‘Independence Day’ speech was lifted right out of ‘ Henry V’
(Or ‘Hank Cinq’—as I like to call it)
Saint Crispin’s Day: The Battle of Agincourt
Watch Le Both (If you are a film buff)
But do it quickly, because FaceFuck will most likely delete this for ‘copyright violation.’
This is a stupid, silly, mindless film, but I am gonna watch it once more anyway.
(It is a guilty pleasure)”
Below: Some added value from
Henry V (VERY Charming Emma Thompson)
(I just threw this in because I love this scene and I love Emma Thompson–She is beautiful and wonderfully talented)
The best line in this scene is when the maid is trying to say the English word for “foot” but it came out something approaching ‘foutre’. Which is Française for ‘fuck’.
I know this because my Moroccan girlfriend (who was fluent in French) often said to me “Va te faire foutre!” Which means “Go fuck yourself.”
(She could be so charmingly delightful at times. I did love her and her passionate spirit.)
Not my painful, plainful verbiage,
What a modern science actor!
(And a really swell guy)
“Lance, there you go again…”
“Sorry! On with the show!”
“Oh for a muse…of fire!”
I love Shakespeare. I love words. I love the simple fact that the only good advice my father once gave to me were the words out of his mouth: “Son, words have meaning and their coinage, well spend them well…”
Now… I am not that too heady. In fact, I am simple. Yet I do still love the coinage of a good phrase. Indeed I do.
Therefore, I leave you this. As all good Bloggers do, I desire a Stage! My Kingdom for a Stage!
. Read… and… well…stay tuned
And Kenneth Branagh At his Best
(Uh Oh! King Harry is pissed off!)
And Even Better
(and here, find the subtle wrath: you don’t wanna be these guys)
And Even More Better: “Once More Unto The Breach!”
And You Gotta Love This Guy: “In Thunder and in Earthquake”
In my opinion this is Branagh’s finest movie

Scrambling to post…
(Don’t worry: I really don’t mean a word of it)
Here are two of my ‘Favourite’ Things.
(Okay: Three, or Four, or even more)
“I have of late, though wherefore I know not, lost all my mirth.”
I just threw this in to see if y’all were paying attention
This concludes today’s history lesson.
And yes: these will be on the test.
And of course there is this:
Your Humble Servant: Capt. Von Trapp, circa, 1975
If there is a greater actor than Derek Jacobi, I’d like to meet him / her.
