Rest In Pieces - After the autopsy, sold the heads, intake, and carb. The body went to the junkyard. Couldn't let it set in the yard til I could sell it to someone, so...

Wish I had those heads now. $$$

And by coincidence, I just this afternoon saw a movie with Bob Hoskins in it, called "Beyond the Sea." Story of Bobby Darin, starring Kevin Spacey--who does all his own singing in the movie. I guess it's not really surprising that he can sing well, but he can.

I've never watched that. Is it worth seeing?

It was good. Not mind-blowing, just about what you'd expect from a movie about the life of a famous singer. But I enjoyed it.

Edit: I take it back, there were a few darn good choreographed dancing scenes, if you're into that.

I've heard Spacey sing. I think that'll probably carry the thing for me.

Spacey singing.

He does excellent voice impressions as well.

Slight tangent here.
When I lived in London and was sharing a house with people I hated (pre-Cellar) I was stopped in my tracks as I was about to leave the house. A beautiful high tenor voice had just sung "The hills are alive..."

It was obviously a recorded voice (the story isn't that exciting) but I had to poke my head round the door of the living room to check it out.
And there on the screen was Ewan McGregor, who I knew from gritty independent British films, singing like a tripped out angel in a dream in Baz Luhrmann's Moulin Rouge.

It's not fair tht some people get looks and talent and intelligence and social conscience and being all round jolly good chaps. And can sing too.

But life isn't fair, and where would we be without them after all.

Little Pete saw Arthur Darvill in Once, the boy can do it all.

some tennis player chick aged 30 liver cancer. Never heard of her, but 30! :(

Fuckin' cancer.

With Spacey, I didn't know the first few impressions, then he did the worst Audrey Hepburn accent I'd ever heard... ( yeah, I worked it out).
But once he got going I was very impressed.

Re Elena Baltacha (I'm not a tennis fan but she was raised Scottish so I did know who she was) ouch. Cold water down my spine. Barring an accident I will die of something liver-related, so it always jars for me when someone goes that way. So young too, and SO healthy.

He said the word 'funny' as Al Pacino...I cackled.
