I am a great fan of pulp writer Robert E. Howard. I want to use this blog as a means to become a better writer -- but please don't hold me to that.

Fandoms include (but are not limited to): Ben Whishaw, Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman, Doctor Who and 00Q (Skyfall). Expect to see a LOT of that stuff here.

I'm originally from Rhode Island, but now live in Florida and I'm only a grown-up when I have to be.

„Martin doesn’t like acting, doesn’t like representing. He likes feeling, likes being. There’s enormous technique at play in his work. He can do almost anything and imagine himself into almost any situation and then, with enormous delicacy, present it for the camera. It’s so difficult to analyze how Martin Freeman works, but he’s better than most of us…”

I MISS YOUUUUUUU….
I was remarking to a friend that London was a lot more peaceful and quiet than anywhere in the States, especially in public. No one disturbs anyone else with loud obnoxious chatter in that city. As soon as I got home, I felt assaulted by the world around me. I couldn’t even read my book peacefully on my lunch break because of two different conversations happening around me. I ended up reading the same sentence four times before asking for a bit of peace - and then I got shamed for wanting a little quiet.
Even now as I type this, in the sanctuary of my own home, my neighbor is having some kind of construction work done on his condo. Some kind of a drill is running at intervals and causing my teeth to chatter.
I got more peace and quiet in the heart of Oxford Circus.
I want to go back NOW.

Judi Dench transforms herself from testy, sometimes wistful, adult back to cautious but excitable child while Ben Whishaw brings his blend of gawky intensity and affability to the role of Peter. He is particularly touching in the final moments, tears welling in his eyes. Peter and Alice’s real–life encounter back then in 1932 would almost certainly not have resulted in the spilling of souls that happens here.But it is that which gives the play its strength and it is ultimately the tragedy of the true Peter and Alice that proves to be the most affecting part of the evening’s production.


I miss this play.
