Biner: Dafodude: ...I didn't call anyone out specifically, but I did put up a status update about how stupid it was to get your news from facebook...

Funny, but when I saw the "RIP Morgan Freeman" posts the other day on Facebook, the first place I went to confirm things was Fark. Is that messed up or what?

Hell, I get all my news from Fark.

If Fark didn't report it, it didn't happen.

My eulogy for Freeman will be the Shawshire Redemption:

"The first night's the toughest, no doubt about it. They march you in naked as the day you were born, without even a pocket handkerchief, and when they put you in that goblin cave... and you tumble into a crevasse as you scream for dwarves... that's when you know it's for real. A whole life blown away in the blink of an eye. Nothing left but all the time in the world to think about it. And a riddle-contest.

I'd like to say that Bilbo fought the good fight, and the goblins left him alone. But Middle-Earth ain't no fairy tale world.

In TA1601 Bilbo escaped from the wood elves prison. All they found of him was a muddy cloak, a bar of soap, and and some smutty pictures of naked Beorn. I remember thinking it would take a man six hundred years to escape with all the dwarves. Old Bilbo managed it in less than a year. Oh, Bilbo loved maps. I imagine it appealed to his meticulous nature. A moon-letter here, a rune there. Geography is the study of people and places. That's all it takes really, people, and places. That, and a big goddamn magic ring. Like I said, in prison a man will do most anything to keep his mind occupied. Turns out Bilbo's favorite hobby was stealing elvish wine, a mouthful at a time. I guess after the Necromancer was defeated, Bilbo decided he'd been here just about long enough. Biblo did like he was told, trimmed his toe hairs. The guards simply didn't notice. Neither did I... I mean, seriously, how often do you really look at a hobbit's feet? Bilbo crawled to freedom through five hundred yards of shiat smelling foulness I can't even imagine, or maybe I just don't want to. Five hundred yards... that's the length of five football fields, just shy of half a mile.

I'd like to think the last thing that went through Smaug's heart, other than Black Arrow, was how Bilbo Baggins ever got the best of him"

gmikes: Savvy users of the Internets know that one has not perished until Wikipedia says so

I got fooled into submitting a link for Bob Denver, until I realized he died 6 years ago.

Maybe it was Morgon Freeman?

If only they had killed it off before subjecting all of us to last season...

Last season was pretty rough. Just beating us to death with the religious bullshiat in three unrelated subplots and the bad guy was lame as hell. But I'm not giving up on the show, I'll be tuning in for next season.

As will I. I will not be happy if they don't turn things around though.

1. If you're getting your news from Facebook you're stupid.
2. If your friends are getting their news from Facebook, you have stupid friends.

That is all.

Oh thank god. I hope he is well enough to make another Snakes on a Plane movie.

No mention yet of Morgan Freeman's final project before his untimely death? Come for the obituary, stay for the Fifty Shades of Grey audiobook.

HighOnCraic: LeroyBourne: He needs to get on saying every word in the english language on recording. That way he can continue narrating movies after he dies, and the hologram too, I suppose.

That would be easy for him. . .

It took me a looooooooooooong time before I could see him as anyone but Easy Reader.

He'll never die. He'll just walk back on up to His home in Heaven and chill there til He is needed to walk the earth again.
