Maybe now I can get his gun.
Moses revealed...an enormous penis!!!
hunky beauty in his day - some good roles - horrid politics in his later years
too bad, his gun crap clouds his legacy - Rest in Peace
He had huge problems with primates that looked different than him. He was an evil man. I hope all the angels he sees in heaven are jumping up and down beating on their chests and throwing their feces at him.
They took his life from his cold dead hands!!
Wasn't he the gay one? Or was it that other guy?
The other guy.
We were just talking about our dead pool picks last week and he was my #1.
well..... honestly, several of the other ones
Ah, so if my Solyent Green tastes a little like gunpowder this week, I'll know why...
My #1 pick was the Queen, but I'm beginning to think she's going to fucking live forever.
We all know #6 is thinking of someone obvious (and already dead) like Rock Hudson. But yeah, from THAT era, I would be willing to bet 80% of those silver screen actors are homos.
@11 -- Shame on you. What an awful ejaculation.
It was funny. The Q is going to live forever, or at least long enough to keep her eldest son off the throne. But the day she does kick it, I will laugh.
Heston was a terrible actor, the worst of his generation. I'm glad he's dead.
yeah, he was a stiff as actors go. i will refrain from "tasteless" references about him being a true stiff now...ooops.
I think Jube just has a thing for the word "ejaculation."
@14 -- I only hope you have fulfilled any commitment you made to others as faithfully as HM has fulfilled hers to the Commonwealth. Laugh at her death all you want, but don't confuse your disdain for anything approaching a common reaction. But then, being contrarian makes you a stud, I forgot...
@16 -- I like many words.
Your last comment demonstrates just what a pathetic human being you are capable of being.
Wishing and finding joy in the death of another simply because he was as you say a "terrible actor" defines you.
You sir, have a dark and empty soul. Not in a cool sort of gothic way. More like a septic tank.
Doesn't Nancy go to church on Sundays?
i love the way ecce takes on a mantle of pompous gravitas when upbraiding his enemies for vulgarity or heartlessness, but will throw out the crudest and cruelest insults at erica and others with little or no provocation.
fnarf, you made me laugh in the middle of the quiet library.
Yeah, Fnarf, but his stiffness was perfect for the Mr. Jones roles in the sci-fi movies he did in the early 70s. Shame he went nuts toward the end.
With everything i have heard/re-heard about CH today, the only thing that aroused any sentiment in me whatsoever was reading that he had been married to his wife for sixty-four years. I thought, "gee, that's nice". The dude was old-school, but he did nice things for black people (who weren't Ice-T) and managed not to be a miserable wretch.
@23 except he campaigned against affirmative action, not exactly super nice to blacks towards the end.
Déjà vu. I could have sworn they had it on the news a couple of weeks ago Heston died. While traveling at the speed of light last month, my space ship must have encountered a time dilation.
As for Chuck's politics, I prefer to blame his republican leanings on his Alzheimer's. Mental illness/defects are the only explanation I can come up with for voting republican.
Go ahead an laugh at the Queen when she goes, Fnarf, but God save her, she didn't choose her role. And while I scorn much of the tradition she symbolizes, I am well aware that if it weren't for that tradition, I wouldn't have the luxury of such hypocrisy. I will treat her death with gravitas when it comes.
Heston I don't give a second thought to. He can blow away with the dust.
@24 lots of people are against affirmative action. and a lot of people don't think it's a "race" thing, but a shitty solution to a shittier problem. funny, my (white) dad got into Howard University on account of affirmative action.
@26 don't end that sentence with a preposition! (sorry)
@27, while I'm usually a stickler for proper grammar, I generally ignore the preposition rule because it's so inconsistent and outdated. In fact, I think it should...er... be done away with. Don't you agree?
Favorite movie quotes ever:
"God daaaaaaaaaaaaaamn yooooooooou! God damn you all to hell!"
(First runner up: "Get your hands off me, you damned dirty ape!")
There is not and never has been any kind of a rule about ending sentences with prepositions.
@28, 30 and back to 28.
I'm not advocating for a return to stuffy sentences like "I'm sorry, with whom did you have lunch?", but i do think there is a general rule (read: most style guides support) about not using more words than you need (e.g., where is it? vs. where is it at?). Regardless of whether or not there are other official "rules" (read: generally accepted standards by a group of people perhaps consisting of no more than a few of my close friends), in my humblest of humble opinions the sentence would have been a lot smoother if you had just switched it around.
Okay, while I fully intend to cop Fnarf's uncompromising response to the preposition "rule", on looking back at my sentence, I admit I agree with you. My inner stickler tells me I was being lazy. So let's stick it to the old man one more time:
To Heston, I don't give a second thought. He can blow away with the dust.
the prepositions prescription was invented by oxford dons who wanted english to have the same grammatical structure as latin. it is not valid, nor does it make for graceful sentences, imo. english is not latin, ad never has been, despite all the cognates.
As long as we're talking about prescriptions, I could use some Valium right about now.
I blame Mathias, those damn dirty apes, and of course peeeepuuuuul.
I really liked the guy. I think modern American actors are namby-pambies in comparison. He was never afraid to vocalize his public opinions and stood by every one of them. Most people don't know he picketed segregated restaurants in the 1960s and marched with Martin Luther King.
I like to remember him for the everlasting bleak outlook he has left as a permanent scar on my inner psyche playing roles in the apocalyptic thrillers "Soylent Green", "Omega Man" and "Planet Of The Apes". If you haven't seen all three in one sitting, I highly recommend renting the Royal Heston Trilogy and having yourself a little "Hest Fest" this week. Everything you ever wanted to know about the meaning of life, the meaning of death, global warming, Communism, biological experiments and warfare, racism, and post-apocalyptic fashion are revealed in these three films.
5280@34 try Klonopin. Its' less addictive, easier to get and just takes a smidgeon.
The man was a freak but Earthquake, Soylent Green, and The Omega Man are fun movies to watch.
dead pool pick locally has to be
ex Gov. Albert Rosellini
MORE MUSTARD, PLEASE
I keep hearing about this First amendment. What is it?: 'Thou shalt always be ready to kill!'? It certainly seems to trigger a holy reverence amongst the not-so-bright.
Modern cinema had largely obsoleted Heston; only Harry Potter nowadays suffers as fatuously as Heston characters did. In the NRA Heston found a perfect stage for the overacting and fulminating that was his trademark. There is balance here, worthy of Hollywood: Heston suffered in his movies and then later made other folk suffer with his NRA nonsense. What a great ham!
