Great Music...Speaking of entertainment, I just went last night to the movies and saw "True Grit"...WOW..this show will win some OSCARS...Great acting by Beau Bridges. He did another one, "Crazyheart", and won an Oscar last year. Only sad thing is both parts were of alcoholics that he played in the movie. He plays the part of Roster Cogburn, (John Wayne one eyed patch) Keeps you on the edge of your seat. If you like the movies, you'll love this one...full of action...Hope you have a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!! We need some HAPPY huh? Have a great one...
She who is called "Queen of the Fence" wishes you a pleasant day!
May the Force be with you!
I'll have to see that one! I liked John Wayne's acting so much in that one, that my pet rooster (who runs loose all over the place here, & crows in through the front windows every morning) is named Rooster Gogburn!
As far as the "alcoholic" part goes, just try remembering that as much as some of us enjoy looking down on them America has always needed her alcoholics! A man named George Rogers Clark once took a big piece of our country away from both the British & the Indians, with nothing more than a band of seriously alcoholic hillbillies! While most of the men who fought in our Revolution were considered as honest & decent men of high moral stamdards, but most also drank enough before breakfast to leave today's drunkards passed out before lunch time!!
Just about everyone, including you, & including me, needs to take off the rose colored glasses from time to time & take a long hard look at reality.
BUT, I do intend on watching that movie!
Sorry, I misquoted, it was Jeff Bridges who played the starring role. If you don't have anything to do this New Years Eve, the movie is a best bet. Have a very HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone...Stay warm and stay focused....God bless you all and may God Bless America.
Hey you are talking to the right person. I was married to a full blown alcoholic for many years, until he ate a hole in his stomach and died. It was a very long and painful death, so I am definitely not wearing rose colored glasses, but have seen the results of it. Anyhow, I also just saw, "The Kings Speech"...WOW another winner. Very touching story, with a lot of history in it. Very British, but done exceptionally well. I see Oscars everywhere for both "True Grit" and "The Kings Speech". They are both wonderful movies. I think Hollywood is finally seeing that the people are not stupid and we want good movies without morbid gross killings, and total sex all the time. There is more to life..huh? Hey, hope you enjoy both of these movies. They are TRUE winners.....
Another winner...."The Kings Speech"....takes awhile to get into, but is very human acting. Great work...
Just watched the remake few days back and its really good
I saw the film back in December. As good as the first film was, I believe the remake is a little better. And it took me back to my former home of New Mexico. Some of it was filmed there and I recognized one of the areas in the scenes.
