Darn, but I feel like heck today. Tired, sore throat, etc. Hope I'm not getting sick. Argh.
Going to try to work on JRD's photos now. [ETA: I lied - I think I'll go back and pick up the photos from Friday and Saturday that I passed over - such as Bruce Hopkins, etc. - before I go on to JRD, since his aren't uploaded on my computer yet!] Thank you all for the kind words and encouragement' I really appreciate it!
Oh, and OCH? Showtime is showing Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are dead. Will you PLEASE explain it to me? *G*

I hope you realize... and maybe you don't.. what a gift your photos are to the fandom. There's lots of pictures that come out of a con like ORC, but many of them are 'fan' picture quality. They're good.. but they're a far cry from the professional quality photos that YOU provide.
Such a gift it is... to have these glorious pictures to look at and share. I know it's a lot of work. I just want you to know how much it's appreciated.
Have a Seanie-heart for being such a sweetie.
*catches heart and huggles it*
Thank you for your very, very kind words; I can't tell you how much I appreciate them. *S*
Right... well... uh.
I guess to start out, I should say in Hamlet they never tell you which is which.
So the whole movie you don't know who is Rosencrantz and who is Guildenstern.
So it's really like, where they come into the story is where they start to live. It's like they are starting the story with you, but they don't know what's happened. (Full of dramatic irony.)
Anyway, so Gary's character is sweet. He is constantly inventing things WAY before his time *plane, car horn sound etc.* He is also finding out about all these great interesting theories of physics but he can't explane them when he tries.
He has no common sence, but is very deep at times. Sadly when he does anything right Tim's character is not around to see it. When he tries to show Tim something he is ALWAYS over the top which is his downfall.
Tim's character is the man who tries to reason everything out. He has good common sence and he realizes that he has to figure out what's going on to get out of this situation.
He is not exaclty the sweetest when it comes to dealing with Gary's character. He thinks of himself a lot more than Gary does and he also tries to play with what he has avalible, like words.
Have you seen it already? Anyway, the players are VERY interesting, and their homosexuality is a running gag... Let's see... what else, what else.
Uh, I dunno. What do you want to know?
I just watched it last night so I should be good.
What does it MEAN? *G* Yep, just finished watching it. Love Gary. *S* Hey - who would play whom if Billy and Dom did it? Either could do Gary's... I'm not sure either could do Tim's.
But a good point - it's like they exist only for that part that they play. And is that what life is like for "minor characters"? And - what about the Player? Hmmmm....
Yep, got the little ongoing gag about sort of stumbling on Galileo's expt, Newton's apple, the use of steam... and so on. *S* And, of course, the constant theme of death. But... what does it all mean, oh wise one? *G*
First... watch it again.
Second Billy would be Tim's character! I mean, look at UGS and look at Billy... it's perfect. Plus it's a reversal of the Merry and Pippin roles. Dom would do much better at Gary's character. I'm not saying that Billy is a better actor than Dom, *although they all say that, not billy, but the rest.* but he would be better for the role. He could comand it better. You have NO idea how BADLY I want them to do this play. ANYWAY...
Second... reading the play may help.
Third... I don't have all the answers. A lot of it is not knowing.
Fourth... The player, he's the one that sets them up. He knows how it's going to end, and he (including the troupe) are the only ones who do. This is also easier to see in the play. Very short, quick read.
Fifth... wise one? It's just one of those things... it dosen't have a deep meaning that will change the world as you see it, it's just a look at these two characters. These two minor characters who didn't have to die but did. It's really all about death. I really don't know how to describe it.
The real question is, Did you like it? It's fine if you didn't, but it does help to watch it again. Let me put it this way. I watched it two nights ago, and saw two new things. This is a movie I've seen more than I've seen my toes and I can quote it back to front, BUT I still saw two new things in it. Watch it again. :)
I'm so glad you got to see it though.
And yeah... Billy would be a perfect Guild!!! (Well, as far as the credits go.)
Did I like it? Hmmmmmm.... probably need to see it again! *G* I really really liked just watching Oldman and Roth in the roles, and Dreyfuss was good as well! But the flow of it felt funny; I'd definitely like to see the play and compare!
Why was I thinking Billy as Guild? Are you familiar with Laurel and Hardy? Stan Laurel's "innocent" look? Well, both Billy and Oldman steal and use that shamelessly - Billy for Pippin and Oldman for Guild. *G* Look for it! *G*
And I'm glad I saw it, too - and from the beginning. Turned on the TV and switched to it just as the front credits were rolling! *S* Thanks for reccing it!
p.s. heard you did a nice big post on Edinburgh and will try to get back to reading it when the ORC photos stuff is done. *S*
Yeah, picture post of Edinburgh... :) Take your time with the ORC stuff, it's fantastic!
Billy would be great though as Tim's character!!! SO evil and SEXY!
Yeah, but you're right they both have the cute quoi look.
Yeah... watch it again... it dosen't move as well as the play but that's also because they have all the sets etc.
