There's no earthly way of knowing
which direction we are going
there's no knowing where we're rowing
or which way the river's flowing

Is it raining?  Is it snowing?
Is a hurricane a-blowing?

Not a speck of light is showing
so the danger must be growing
are the fires of hell a-glowing?
is the grisly reaper mowing?

YES!  The danger must be growing
for the rowers keep on rowing
and they're certainly not showing
any sign that they are slowing!

Same.  Saw him give one of those on-stage interviews when his memoir came out, he was very interesting to listen to, and seemed really nice.

Not untrue.

Still...in the highly-unlikely event that I reach 81, I hope that I look even half as good and possess even one-tenth of the grace and intelligence.
 
2014-06-11 12:29:32 PM  
...and intelligence of either of them.

Dr. Frankenstein[To Igor] Igor, may I speak to you for a moment?
Igor: Of course.
Dr. Frankenstein: Sit down, won't you?
Igor: Thank you.  [sits on the floor]
Dr. Frankenstein: No no, up here.
Igor: Thank you.  [sits on a chair]
Dr. Frankenstein: Now... that brain that you gave me... was it Hans Delbruck's?
Igor[Crosses arms] No.
Dr. Frankenstein[Holds up hand] Ah. Good. Uh... would you mind telling me... whose brain... I  did put in?
Igor: And you won't be angry?
Dr. Frankenstein: I will  not be angry.
Igor[Shrugs] Abby...someone.
Dr. Frankenstein: Abby someone? Abby who?
Igor: Abby Normal.
Dr. Frankenstein[takes a deep breath] Abby Normal?
Igor: I'm almost sure that was the name.  [He and Dr. Frankenstein laugh]
Dr. Frankenstein: Are you saying...  [Stands] that I put an abnormal brain...  [Puts hand on Igor's hump] into a 7 and a half foot long... 54- inch wide...  [Grabs Igor by throat] GORILLA?!?!?!  [Strangling Igor] IS  THAT WHAT YOU'RE TELLING ME!?!

I love the man's work, though after reading his autobiography KISS ME LIKE A STRANGER, he dropped a
bit in my estimation for the way he treated Gilda Radner (He stuck with her through her illness, though, even
if he basically had fallen out of love with her and cheated on her regularly).  Still, though, he gets points for
being unsentimental and honest in his self assessments, and it chronicles his experiences getting a then-
experimental stem cell transplant to treat his non-Hodkins Lymphoma very well (my mom went through the
procedure a couple of years ago, and his book well prepared me for what was to come).

"Gene Wilder? THE Gene Wilder?"

1. I'm glad he's still alive. I thought he was dead for some reason.

2. Happy birthday to him. He has entertained me for most of my life, and I'm grateful for that.
 
2014-06-11 01:36:56 PM  
Heh, I also thought he was dead, but I guess he just retired from acting a while ago. Or maybe he's a zombie.

Happy b-day, Zombie Gene Wilder!

no shiat - he's older than I would have guessed.

I wonder what I would have guessed if subby hadn't given it away in the headline.

I probably would have been off by at least 10 years.
