Line(s) of the Day #Frasier

Frasier: She is nice. Intelligent, accomplished.
Daphne: Well, if you think so much of her why don’t you ask her out?
Frasier: Well, we agreed we wouldn’t pursue things. Frankly, she hasn’t given me any indication since that she’s even had a second thought about me.
Niles: Added to which, if Frasier did pursue her and she rejected him, he could hardly rationalise it by saying she doesn’t know what she’s missing. She would know exactly what she’s missing – she just didn’t miss it!

Kelsey Grammer, Jane Leeves and David Hyde Pierce with another example of the blistering wit in the much-loved Seattle-based sitcom Frasier (1993 – 2004). No other show show has been quoted more in my blog, starting with this one back in the first week.

Line(s) of the Day #CyrilleRegis

Cyrille Regis West Bromwich Albion circa 1984

I kept it as a reminder of the evil some people had inside them. For the rest of my playing days, it was a motivation that they weren’t going to stop me.

As said by Cyrille Regis (1958 – 2018), the hugely inspirational and much loved former footballer, who has sadly passed. As well a huge goalscoring talent on the field, he also faced racist bigotry off the field which he dealt with a dignity and class that inspired later generations of black footballers. The quote refers to a bullet being sent to him before his senior England debut.

Film Quizzes: Female Directed Films Part 1

There have been some truly inspirational females in Hollywood making their voices heard, matching with a growing increasing of films with female leads. That includes films like Wonder Woman, Bridesmaids, Ghostbusters and Hidden Figures, with a wide array of talented female stars. But it’s not just on screen where this talent is starting to show.  Behind the camera, there have been some fantastic work going on by a number of women in all kinds of genres. You’ll notice some great films from up to 30 years ago as well. How many of these women-directed films do you recognise? Did any of them surprise you?

Line(s) of the Day #AllTheMoneyInTheWorld

All the Money in the World

(v/o) To be a Getty is an extraordinary thing. My grandfather wasn’t just the richest man in the world, he was the richest man in the history of the world. We look like you, but we’re not like you. It’s like we’re from another planet where the force of gravity is so strong it bends the light. It bends people too.

John Paul Getty III (Charlie Plummer) in All the Money in the World (2018), which tells the story of Getty’s kidnapping and the issues surrounding the paying of the ransom.

Line(s) of the Day #WishingWell

r-1055810-1395050093-7249-jpeg

Kissing like a bandit stealing time
Underneath the sycamore tree
Cupid by the hour sends valentines
To my sweet lover and me
Slowly, Surely
Yours appetite is more than I know
Sweetly, Softly
I’m falling in love with you

The opening verse of US number one Wishing Well by the super slick Terence Trent D’Arby, from his debut studio album Introducing the Hardline According to Terence Trent D’Arby (1988)

2017 sure has passed quickly, hasn’t it? It doesn’t seem so long ago since I was selecting my choices for the 2016 Films Post. Have you been pleased with this year’s standard overall?

I haven’t seen the latest Star Wars (though will soon), but you’re more than welcome to offer any other suggestions.

Line(s) of the Day #DoTheyKnowItsChristmas

band-aid-3

And in our world of plenty we can spread a smile of joy
Throw your arms around the world at Christmastime

Taken from the charity song Do They Know It’s Christmas by Band Aid (1984). The multi-million selling single was written in response to a severe famine in Ethiopia, and, along with several re-releases, has raised an estimated $150m into different causes. Have a wonderful Christmas everyone.

Gr8at: #ComedyWildlifePhotographyAwards

I love animals, photography and comedy, so anything that successfully combines all three is a sure-fire winner for me. I covered The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards in a post last year so it’s great to add some from this year’s edition too. Especially as the standard is a high as ever. These are my eight favourites, but be sure to check out the official website for more great photos, as well as any possible merchandise that catches your eye.

And this year’s effort, with the Deep Sea Adventure theme, did not disappoint. Here are my favourites.
