    Watched “Chinatown” yesterday for the first time in many years. Great flick as always, but I couldn’t help wondering afterwards what happened to Faye Dunaway. Seems like she’s dropped off the face of the Earth. So what’s she up to these days? And why does it seem like she’s disappaeared? Besides, that is, my ignorance of what she’s been up to. Or is that it?

    LexG announced on Twitter that he has retired his online persona, at least on the sites we know.
    No idea if that will last, but in many ways I hope not.

    If that means he’ll focus on improving his skills and attitude, I’m all for it.

    There are no second acts in Internet lives.

    By most accounts, Faye Dunaway is a hot box of a crazy. She credits Mommie Dearest with ruining her career. I think that if she would just embrace the movie rather than forever apologizing for it, her life would be a lot easier.

    Interesting, CaptainZahn. Looks like the main reason Faye Dunaway disappeared is . . . Faye Dunaway.

“We don’t have any idea what the universe is. Wise people have always told us that this is proof you shouldn’t think, because thinking leads you nowhere. You just build over this huge construction of misunderstanding, which is culture. The history of culture is the history of the misunderstandings of great thinkers. So we always have to go back to zero and begin differently. And maybe in that way you have a chance not to understand but at least not to have further misunderstandings. Because this is the other side of this question—Am I really so brave to cancel all human culture? To stop admiring the beauty in human production? It’s very difficult to say no.”

“I have a license to carry in New York. Can you believe that? Nobody knows that, [Applause] somebody attacks, somebody attacks me, oh, they’re gonna be shot. Can you imagine? Somebody says, oh, it is Trump, he’s easy pickings what do you say? Right? Oh, boy. What was the famous movie? No. Remember, no remember where he went around and he sort of after his wife was hurt so badly and kill. What?  I — Honestly, Yeah, right, it’s true, but you have many of them. Famous movie. Somebody. You have many of them. Charles Bronson right the late great Charles Bronson name of the movie come on.  , remember that? Ah, we’re gonna cut you up, sir, we’re gonna cut you up, uh-huh.


One of the great movies. Charles Bronson, great, Charles Bronson. Great movies. Today you can’t make that movie because it’s not politically correct, right? It’s not politically correct. But could you imagine with Trump? Somebody says, oh, all these big monsters aren’t around he’s easy pickings and then shoot.”
