Why thank you, Bill! You're a saint in a West Ham home kit, which must be quite a balancing act. wink

Alright, onward!

81) Dana Wilcox wrote words to the effect that I shouldn't be sad that Jack Cassidy died in a fire because Jack was physically abusive and a sex addict. Then in another thread Dana went on to make excuses for serial scumbag Charlie Sheen. big grin

Dana Wilcox on Jack Cassidy (not deserving of our sympathy):

"I believe hearing from several sources that besides being a decent character actor, Jack Cassidy was a first class sleazeball, every bit the lowlife that he often played on TV suspense shows such as COLUMBO (except I don't think he ever really murdered anyone). Seems I remember that he was an insatiable sexhound (bisexually active) and in various ways quite abusive during his marriage to Shirley Jones... I defer to those more knowledgeable than I on this score, but I don't think ol' Jack probably was deserving of too much of our sympathy."

("Which Actor's Career Was Not Fully Realized?")

Dana Wilcox on Charlie Sheen (deserving of our sympathy):

"I can't believe people here are wishing that Sheen would die because he is addicted to a highly addictive drug. Nice people. You obviously don't get it that addicted people do crazy things. Everyone wanted to throw in the towel on Robert Downey, Jr., as I recall, but he was able to get himself straightened out and has done some nice work since then. I don't know Charlie Sheen so I can't hate him (as some you apparently do, wishing for his death), but where there's life there's hope so don't write him off. IMO he is a brilliant comic actor and the show is one of the best-written sitcoms on tv."

("Production Pulled on Two and a Half Men")

Man, I love this place. big grin

82) Haineshisway's reminiscence in "FILM MUSIC SOCIETY: George Duning at 100":

"I have never heard a Duning score that I didn't love. One of my happiest moments was when I watched the original airing of one of The Partridge Family episodes I acted in, and this beautiful score was playing under one of my big scenes - and then the credits came on and it was Duning."

83) Bruce Marshall in "These Phrases Need to Go Away":

Ah, that reminds me of one of my recent faves. In the "Which Re-recording?" thread, which had lately been beset by capering cartoons, a contributor referred to the "Bernstein Aida Collection". Though everyone carried on as if nothing had happened (like when someone passes wind in church), I'm sure it didn't go unnoticed. I suspect it was inadvertent, given that it's now been corrected (although preserved in a quote), but it still gave me a laugh.

84) Montana Dave's "mistaken revelation" in the Lion in Winter Blu-ray thread:

Montana Dave: "viewed this in the new Kino Lorber Blu-ray release which incorporates a new 4K Scan, last evening. The results are absolutely extraordinary! John Barry's Oscar-winning score and the dialogue of James Goldman's Oscar-winning script are delivered to the ear splendidly in the new 5:1 sound remix. I must add that the imagery here in this new transfer is breathtaking, compared to the old video / dvd which appeared 'smeary and muddy'. The very first scene in the film is of King Henry practicing his swordplay with his youngest son, John. The bright blue skies, sunlight reflecting off the swords and flesh-tones of the actors are rendered perfectly by, (my personal favorite Cinematographer), Douglas Slocombe. I never saw this film when it first came out in 1968, only on television in the 1970's and on video. This release surely must be what it was like at the film's premier; see this version people!"

KonstantinosZ: "I'm sorry but i would hardly call this bluray (and also it's European counterpart) a revelation.
i guess it seems great to people who don't like grain because it has been scrabbed of its filmic quality and looks nothings like great 4K scans that have been released on other Blurays.

here's a review by the expert Mr. Harris, the man behind the restorations of Spartacus and My fair Lady:"

Don't believe KonstantinosZ? Just ask the "expert Mr. Harris" and the assorted unwashed psychos at HTF.

Jehannum post in Don't Tell Jokes in the UK thread.

I'm certain that the more accommodating a society becomes, the more the people push for more. We're experiencing this to ridiculous levels when we allow people to "identify as" things they are not. For example, the tranny-rights brigade wanting access to female toilets causing a hilarious face-off with feminazis who'd vomit at the sight of a penis.

85) Solium, your post in that very same thread merits inclusion here.

"Free speech, even speech you don't like protects EVERYONE. Without it your freedom of thought and speech are at the mercy of those in power. Don't think saying something as flowery as "Friendship is magic" is any less susceptible to the wrath of others."

It's like an outtake from The Omega Glory!
