Happy Birthday!

And again: Some of my favourites are having their Birthday today!

So yay for:



Eamonn Walker

* November 30, 1950

~ What can I say? He is just awesome! And very sexy.. ~



Mandy Patinkin

* November 30, 1952

~ Love him! Love him when he smiles - and love him when he's grumpy. Adorable! Also very, very sexy.. ~

and


Virginia Mayo!

* November 30, 1920
† January 17, 2005

Great actress! She is - of course: very, very, very sexy..


Just a day for sexy people..

All of them are not only actors but very talented musical performancers - though Miss Mayo stated that she was a professional nonsinger -she was a not so bad at dancing: Have a look - this is from STARLIFT (1951):






Mandy Patinkin is here singing a well known song from a classic movie:





Eamonn Walker sounds completely different than Mr. Patinkin.. He was afraid he couldn't do the part of Howlin' Wolf in CADILLAC RECORDS (2008) - because he would have to sing - but I love it! (I am a fan of Howlin' Wolf - and I think Mr. Walker did a good job here - not to mention that I get some kick out of his smile..) The film is one of my modern favourites:



...


Have a great day!

MY HAIR IS BLOND, BUT MY HEART IS BRUNETTE


Okay, this was the last time i bleachd my hair for this season, as you can see it's bleached to dead, my hair just deserves a little rest. So I'll just keep using so silver shampoo to get it lighter... I don't know if thats good for my hair but it's better than bleaching it for the 5th time this monts. I actualy forget I was wearing my brothers scarf when this picture was taking but I didn't want to take another picture without the scarf, I'm just not that type of girl that take a hunderd of pictues of myself, I'm just to lazy for that.

A origem do projecto " O Muro dos Sussurros"

 Represa romana do parque de Muel, Zaragoza, Espanha

Maqueta inicial do projecto "O Muro dos Sussurros"- Sofia Beça, Juan Ortí e Alberto Andrés

Já fez um ano que propus a Juan Ortí e a Alberto Andrés para formarmos uma equipa para a realização de um projecto. Ambos aceitaram de imediato e começamos a trabalhar numa proposta, que acabou por ser " O Muro dos Sussurros".
Ao fim de mais de um ano conseguimos começar a sua execução ( finalmente), como poderão ver no que fui publicando anteriormente aqui no blog, mas que ainda não está terminado. De momento está em fase de secagem e só daqui a dois meses se poderá começar a fazer as fornadas, para assim assegurarmos uma boa secagem sem surpresas ( que infelizmente muitas vezes surgem). Depois, se tudo correr como esperamos, passaremos á fase da montagem da escultura no local definitivo.
Deixo aqui as imagens do que nos baseou o projecto e como imaginamos o muro na recta final e também uma pequena explicação no que consiste o trabalho.

"...O projecto consiste na realização de uma escultura de grande formato. Na hora de desenvolver a ideia, tivemos duas questões em conta, a primeira com o seu entorno e a segunda que estivesse vinculada ao espaço escolhido.
A integração no seu entorno consegue-se trabalhando com os tons do barro e engobes terrosos, de maneira a que esses tons sejam a continuação da pedra e o barro que caracteriza o parque.
A vinculação com o espaço surge através da reinterpretação de um dos elementos mais caracteristicos do parque e da história de Muel, como é o muro da represa romana.

A escultura " O Muro dos Sussurros", quer transladar uma parte da represa para outro lugar do parque e a sua descontextualização do seu contacto directo com a água. Colocá-lo mais perto das rochas que da água.
Por outro lado, tomando como imagem de partida o muro de blocos e dando protagonismo aos módulos na vertical, consegue-se encontrar outros sentidos na obra, que vão desde o jogo das fachadas arquitéctónicas contemporaneas, à possível leitura como se fosse um código de barras..."

Some puppy love.. ..with Errol Flynn and his daughter Deidre


Today we have Errol Flynn:

Here he is with his daughter Deidre at the set of MONTANA (released 1950 - filmed 1948) - the dog had a part in it, too..



And here is Errol Flynn with his Schnautzer Moody (Isn't that a wonderful name??) during the filming of NEVER SAY GOODBYE (1945):



Just by the way: The Errol Flynn month at LET THE SHOW BEGIN will end tomorrow - then Monty and I will post any- and everything related to our moth's topic: Christmas..

Thank you all for listening!

Have a great day

yours (very well and) truly

Flick of The Day:The Big Lebowski

It would be hard to argue against the Coen Brothers as the most consistently entertaining and talented film-makers of the last 25 years. They have consistently delivered great cinema across many genres, from their debut with the suspenseful thriller Blood Simple to the gangster epic Millers Crossing, the darkly comic Fargo and their Oscar winning western True Grit. Perhaps their best work, or at least their most quotable and comic picture is 1998's The Big Lebowski. Today's flick of the day, it is a deeply funny comic riff on a Raymond Chandleresque caper.
Jeff Bridges, in a once in a lifetime performance, is Jeff 'The Dude' Lebowski, a layabout bowler and a Creedence Clearwater fan in 1991 Los Angeles. The Dude spends his days bowling and arguing with his two friends, ex-surfer Donny played by Steve Buscemi and Vietnam vet cum psychotic Walter played by the incomparable John Goodman. Arriving home one evening, he walks in on two hoodlums looking to collect a debt owed by a Jeffrey Lewbowski and his trophy wife Bunny to a Jackie Treehorn. One of them decides to urinate on The Dude's rug when the case of mistaken identity becomes apparent. The Dude decides to contact the big Lebowski and get compensation for his soiled rug. He is quickly drawn into a web of double crosses as he seeks to get to the bottom of the disappearance of Bunny Lebowski involving a trio of German nihilists, a pornographer,  a teenage car thief, a private detective, an artist who describes her work as "strongly vaginal" and Dude's crazy friend Walther.

The Dude: And, you know, he's got emotional problems, man. 
Walter Sobchak: You mean... beyond pacifism?

This is a gem of a movie, an absurdist take on the kind of hard boiled detective tales so often set in Los Angeles and penned by the likes of Chandler and Hammet. It has the kind of gleefully bizarre cast of characters that one only encounters in a Coen Brothers picture. Bridges' The Dude is a latter day stoner Philip Marlowe and his interactions with his crazy Vietnam obsesses friend played by Goodman are a highlight of the film. 


Donny: Are these the Nazis, Walter? 
Walter Sobchak: No, Donny, these men are nihilists. There's nothing to be afraid of.


Less of a cogent tale then a series of encounters between The Dude and the oddballs which populate Southern California. In that sense, it is perhaps the most quotable film of all time with so many witty one liners, it is difficult to pick your favourite. Add this to a series of bizarre dream sequences  set to the music of Kenny Rogers and you have a film that really can't be missed.


The Dude: Mr. Treehorn treats objects like women, man. 
Malibu Police Chief: Mr. Treehorn draws a lot of water in this town. You don't draw shit, Lebowski. Now we got a nice, quiet little beach community here, and I aim to keep it nice and quiet. So let me make something plain. I don't like you sucking around, bothering our citizens, Lebowski. I don't like your jerk-off name. I don't like your jerk-off face. I don't like your jerk-off behavior, and I don't like you, jerk-off. Do I make myself clear? 
The Dude: [after a pause] I'm sorry, I wasn't listening. 


A commercial failure on its release in 1998, perhaps because its unstructured tale of idiocy clashed with the kind of crowd attracted to the Coen's work after the roaring success of Fargo. In the years since, it has come to be seen as the true classic it is and indeed has spawned a whole cottage industry of Dude related paraphernalia and even a festival.

Walter Sobchak: Nihilists! Fuck me. I mean, say what you like about the tenets of National Socialism, Dude, at least it's an ethos.

Ultimately, this is the kind of film you either love or hate. You either buy in to the bizarre circumstances and run with it or you don't. It is a brilliant film held together by a fine ensemble cast and with perhaps the best script the Coens have ever written. A real must see.


Da Fino, Private Snoop: I'm a brother shamus! 
The Dude: Brother Seamus? Like an Irish monk? 
Da Fino, Private Snoop: What the fuck are you talking about?
