[quote=DanaC;586840]I've seen Quantum of Solace It was ok. A good romp. But the first film was better.

Daniel Craig absolutely can and does do gentle. He's been in some fabulous tv dramas over here (Our Friends in the North was a highly acclaimed drama in the 90s and is still referenced as a high point in tv drama). I've seen him in a broad range of stuff, playing very different character types. He's very well-known over here as a serious actor. Daniel Craig the big budget movie star is quite a new phenomenon :P

If you see him in interview he's actually a very gentle man.

Talking of which. Here's an interview from 2007, on the Johnathon Ross show (Rossy is probably the nearest equivalent we have to Letterman).

Cheers for the clips. Amazing what a haircut and a suit can do.
I couldn't watch Some Voices due to " copyright restrictions". Ce la vie.

Any guesses as to where the photo was taken? This was one of my favourite parts of last weekend's trip (which was not Antofagasta, but a city in a neighbouring country)-seeing normal people in normal clothes dancing this particular dance as opposed to the highly sophisticated and polished show that people are used to seeing and expect to see.

I don't think so.

Well, 'fessing up time.

Turns out Casi and Zen are known to each other.

Until Casi went wandering, we worked in the same office for the same company in Adelaide.

She had seen the Cellar while peeping over my shoulder while I was dwelling from work.

While overseas, she started lurking and eventually joined in.

I didn't realise, at first, but when I saw the vaguely South American pictures, I figured I would take a wild guess, and wrote the name of the only non-major city in South America I know of, being where my erstwhile colleage is presently located: Antafogasto (I still cannot spell it). It was meant to be a wild guess, but it happened to hit.

That was when I began to suspect. The tricky little minx.

No, wait, Minx is the third Adelaidean dwellar.

Now, it's my turn to be intrigued. Who is the 3rd Adelaidean dwellar?

Ignore my last question. I've got that one sorted.

And there I was thinking that Zen knew, but was being deliberately vague.

I think this is the soapie like thread that needs to be pensioned off.

...but wasn't that a flash-forward dream sequence scene where you remembered that Rick knew that Sarah had seen the body in the boat-shed and might remember if she woke up from her coma ....

You may be right since you're leaving. But you could do your new location here, or in a new thread, your choice. I can't participate because I know where you're posting from, and that wouldn't be fair to the guessers.

Say, Bruce, can you use your super-powers and check, does it look like I am posting from Adelaide, or Brisbane?
I'm in the former, but I think my ISP must go via the latter, because I sometimes get pop-up ads offering me Dates With Hot Sexy Blond Women In Brisbane (who look suspiciously similar to the hot sexy blond women I was offered dates with in Japan, but never mind that.)
