Silly Billies Outraged at Direwolf Death in GoT + Khaki Monday + Feel Like Dancin' + Rob Kazinsky Leaving The Hobiit Cast! + HAPPY EASTER!!



GRR Martin writes for adults - the emotional basketcases described in following article might as well turn the channel to a drama that's all sweetness and light, if they are so ill-equipped to handle future 'fictional' deaths as well. 


Thank you Violet for this interesting tidbit:
Never hurts for your business to have a recommendation from a quickly arising star ...read the ad dated Mar 2011..






Hobbit NEWS:  Peter Jackson announced today with regret that Rob Kazinsky, for personal reasons, will be leaving The Hobbit cast.  Rob's last tweet, after thanking Sir Peter in previous tweets, read:
"it's a health issue duncs, all will be well in time, promise!"




Peeder Jigson takes advantage of their Easter break to give an update on filming;)  The real Sir Peter really messed up this guy's schtick when he lost so much weight. hehe

    
     Those trolls and goblins have Noooo idea the deep trouble they're in from Thorin..


GAME of THRONES and CAMELOT:    IMO, we need all the quality drama we can find to wash away the tons of garbage masquerading as entertainment on both movie and TV screens. Therefore, this viewer is marinating with pleasure in both the following shows and even managing to capture the non-toxic(numerous poisonings) moments of The Borgias as well. [UPDATE: after ep 4 of Borgias, they finally killed us off as well;)  We decided the never-ending drumbeat of dark, diabolical ugliness simply didn't have any redeeming features to warrnat finishing the series.  It actually pained both DH and myself to feel as though we were forced to make that decision, because we usually thoroughly enjoy historical drama.  The pre-premiere warnings of a medieval Sopranos-like series was right on the mark.  We didn't care for that one either - both prompt feelings that your mind is being insulted, polluted and abused.

Happy Easter!

Sad to hear about Rob Kazinsky, hope things will be well with him. He seemed so happy and excited about being part of The Hobbit. Hope the best for his career as well. I'll miss his tweets from NZ. We won't have anyone to keep us posted anymore :(

RiCrAr said...

True, Musa. Rob's tweets didn't make it clear whether it's a health issue for him or perhaps a family member. Either way he has our best wishes.

I was surprized to hear that so far most of the filming is of Bilbo..very little of the dwarves. It appeared during Peter Jackson's recent 10min video that they were planning to shoot the initial gathering of the entire group in the cozy hobbit hole.

Musa said...

Maybe the rest of the cast is not going to get the same long break as Martin Freeman and maybe that's why they're filming him first? I'm trying to think of the few scenes in The Hobbit that don't have Bilbo in them,I can think of one with Thorin. It would make sense since they lost a month with PJ's surgery. Then again, they'll have to recast Fili, but they may already have someone they auditioned earlier.(We'll have only Sir Ian to keep us informed...not very often sadly).

I think Sherlock starts filming in May.

(Thanks for the SB pic by the way, love the smile)

Musa, what do you think of the Game of Thornes viewers who were outraged by the fictitious death of a fictitious direwolf:) Unbelievable, isn't it..they were threatening HBO with not watching the show.

Best advice we could give them would be to go with that thought. They'll be traumatized by future episodes. haha

Musa said...

Ricrar...I can't believe the viewers that are crying over Lady being killed, and seem to be OK with all the other killings of human characters! The animals are also characters in the story. The real animal is alive and well, and was adopted by the young actress that plays Sansa. If they're going to react this way then GoT is not the story for them! If I were HBO I would say, go ahead, don't watch the show. (I bet most of them will tune in next Sunday!)

Just heard about Rob Kathingimebob (I can never get my teeth around that surname!) Apparently he's been seen using crutches. I bet he could kick himself (if he can)for messing that one up! So Richard take note, no matter how tempted those NZ ski slopes are you'd be better off avoiding them, otherwise you could be the next to hobble off into the sunset!

RiCrAr said...

Musa, after relating to DH the outrage by some viewers at a fictitious animal's death, he replied "and they appeared to deliberately not show the actual killing." You are so correct about their lack of sensitivity about the 'apparent' human deaths...silly people. It's true that there's a certain % of humans(IMO of the liberal stripe) who have difficulty distingusihing fiction from reality. Emotional immaturity is probably the cause.

Sue, that's the first time I've heard that Rob is using crutches. Might he have suffered a serious injury during rehearsals?
Wise warning for Richard about skiing - do you think their Hobbit insurance policies include restrictions on risky pursuits?
