  1. The newer ones are more sophisticated. The one pictured is a first draft.
  2. And as Frank Usher in The Tall T; killing a young kid and throwing him down the well qualifies as villainy.
  3. I like the list. Lee Van Cleef takes it in many ways because his role was essentially always the villain. They list Lee Marvin as Liberty Valance; good enough, but he was a bit over the top there. He was even smoother as the wicked guy in Seven Men From Now with Randolph Scott, a classic performance. Likewise, Richard Boone was a great bad guy as Cicero Grimes in Hombre, but almost as good in The Tall T; that one also with Randolph Scott. But though both Marvin and Boone made great villains, they had too many other non-villainous roles to be pigeonholed as great villains.
  4. A fruit is a botanical term. A vegetable is a term that can be applied to plants in general, as in the 'vegetable world' as opposed to the 'animal world.' But otherwise, in common usage, the term vegetable is a culinary term, that applies to how it is used in cuisine: fruits are sweet, vegetables are savory. By and large. But then this has been going on since time immemorial: "is a tomato a fruit or a vegetable?". Answer: both. They are not exclusive categories. Sort of like nuts. Lots of culinary nuts are not botanical nuts.
  5. The chickens, steaks, and chops we cook all come from the store. I don't think this is remarkable. After all, we don't think they are made there.....
  6. Tomatoes continue to ripen and they are a vegetable. I fruit can certainly be a vegetable; fruit being a botanical term and vegetable a culinary one. I think avocodos qualify, too.
  7. I've always liked Tom Hanks. Certainly never have seen a performance that put me off. Of course, there are better actors, but he seems at worst inoffensive and some of his movies have been very good. I think his main appeal is as an 'everyman' type. Greyhound is a tight story of a single convoy, with plenty of naval action. It has a very minimal backstory. One of the things I liked about it was the "compactness" of the story, for lack of a better way of putting it.
  8. Hanks has been in a lot of very good movies, and has produced a lot of good stuff, too, such as Band of Brothers. Greyhound was a little under the radar, maybe because it was released mid-Covid and didn't have much of a theatrical release.
  9. I don't know about the Swiss, but in Sweden and Norway they are required for hunting either by law or custom. The idea being that people out in the woods or rural areas shouldn't have to hear a lot of gunfire in hunting season. On the other hand, in Belgium you'll go to prison if you own one. Laws vary, and not just here in the US.
  10. Who's 'for war'? I don't have any solution, but would be glad to hear yours. Do nothing?
  11. Ah, Grace Slick. Jefferson Airplane, Big Brother and the Holding Company, Moby Grape, Quicksilver Messenger Service....they played at Cal dances in Berkeley when I was a frat boy there in 1966-67. Does that mean I'm old, too? Say it ain't so! We had fun times then.
  12. I dunno. The post was the one just before mine...I checked again....
