Over at thr discussion site, Dee mentioned about the movie book made for RHPOT. She is quite right as it does have quite a few errors in it, but if you can, get a copy as the photos are quite gorgeous. I found mine at our Friends of the Library book sale.
Keep Smiling-it makes the world a better place-Peace and love

Rachel - For future reference - I did a search (on Yahoo!) on 'time zones' and came up with a couple (at least) of websites which translate times for you. You could have put in the times given in the post and ask it to translate into Eastern time and it would give it in the form you're accustomed to seeing. I can't remember the websites, though.

 

It seems to work well.

Rachel the times given for the press conference are 2.45pm (Central European Time) which is 1.45pm British time(GMT) and if you are Eastern America that equates to five hours earlier than Britain which by my reckoning is 8.45am.

Likewise the Red Carpet will be approx 7.00pm (Europe),6pm Britain and 1pm Eastern America.

Thanks Em.  When I couldn't find it on Wikipedia again, that was what I was afraid of.

Oh sue, it was really fantastic to watch.  I saw in the opening that they've done Jane Horrocks and Sheila Hancock as well. 

 

Luckily, I did see one of the touching moments for Stephen Fry and I shed a tear myself so if there were any moments like that with the Lamm children, well....I just don't know if I could take it. 

 

Sorry yall...I know this OT.

"Ultimate Team" was removed from the Wikipedia listing after it was found to be a hoax.  The information about UT was challenged by some readers and flagged for investigation (you can challenge statements in Wikipedia and then the site maintainers are forced to investigate). 

 

If "Ultimate Team" shows up on any other websites under AR's work, consider the source and assume that site took the bad info from Wikipedia.

Claudia, hope you get to see all that Stephen Fry programme that was braodcast here last week. Naturally there were no "happy endings" for that side of the family but the whole thing was very moving. I had tears running down my face as well as Stephens.

The whole series so far has been fascinating. The first programme featured Jeremy Paxman, one of our hardest nosed political interviewers. He was reduced to tears with his family history as well. As both he and Stephen Fry commented "We don't know we're born" when contemplating the lives of our recent ancestors.

Hello everyone!

 

Because I absolutely love this site and I very frequently download files from here, I thought I should let you in on several news that have been out since yesterday on Mr. Rickman. Maybe some of you already know.

 

Alan won Best Director for My Name is Rachel Corrie, in the Theatregoer Award’s 2005. The awards were voted for by the public through the WhatsOnStage website. My Name is Rachel Corrie also won Best New Play and Megan Dodds, who portrayed Rachel Corrie in the one woman play, won Best Solo Performance. The awards were announced yesterday at the Critics Circle Theatre Awards.

 

Also, Alan is to attend the premiere of Snow Cake on February 9th 2006 in Berlin at the city’s film festival.

 

Have a nice day,

 

Anca

Chalebh,

 

Thanks for the details on the video events.  Note: I have a broadband connection and a week or so I went into the archive and watched a video and I was quite impressed with its quality.  In addition, I was pleased to see the length -- if I recall, the press conference video that I watched was an hour or more long.  YAY!

Chris (and others who are interested) The press conference for Snow Cake will take place at February, 9th at 14.45 CET (which is GMT +1 hour). That will probably be the time when the live streaming for this press conference begins.

The Red Carpet for Snow Cake will be the same day at 19.00 CET or a little bit later. The screening is scheduled for 19.45 CET (unfortunately now live streaming )

But if you miss the live streaming these two events will certainly be in the video archive.

 

AFAIK you don't have to register on the site, but you need to have a really fast connection. I tried to view one of the videos in the archive, even with the lowest resolution, no chance.

Susan, thank you so much for sharing that video link.  For those of you that might be wondering.  Its the show "Who Do You Think You Are" featuring Stephen Fry's genealogy search.  Its fascinating!  Susan, can you tell me if the video clip actually ends right in the middle of SF's results in finding the Lamm children or did my 'puter cause the download to stop short???  I want to know about those children!  *grin*

Camerata: I can't find the Die Hard interview on Download Haven in either Television or Film sections but I did find something in a search a week or so ago, but it's just Alan speaking a short bit and no interviewer or questions, I don't think.  I have it and will have to check it out to be sure.

 

Ali-Pat: That is interesting about the different views - I saw a mention of it on the Amazon listing but wasn't sure what it was.  And, though I missed it below - many happy years ahead to you!

 

Laura: It does seem like there are different things on different Regions.  The one on Amazon (Region 1) lists an interview with Alan Rickman, as well as others, under the Subtitled commentaries as Ali-Pat described.

 

Anyway, thanks everyone for your input.  I'm getting the idea it's not worth buying this one unless I can find a used one very cheap.  Don't the people who put out these DVD's realize what's really important - ALAN, ALAN, and more ALAN?!!!

Sheeesh!

 

I also hope Rima has a happy birthday and many happy returns.  I think it would be difficult to be in a relationship with an actor, especially one who travels a lot (for me, anyway), and they have been together for a long time so it must be really working for them!

My Name Is Rachel Corrie, Alan Rickman and Katharine Viner’s monologue based on the writings of the late American aid worker, is the biggest straight play winner, triumphing in three categories: Best New Play, Best Solo Performance (Megan Dodds) and Best Director for Rickman.

You are right Miriam.
In AR's words she is a candidate for sainthood.

I don't know any of them personally but let's say they are both lucky to have each other. Seems to me like a good guess.

And why, oh why is it coming out in China first???  Nothing against China - it just doesn't make sense to me to be first. . . .  I'm not even sure why it has such varied release dates all over the world.  Why not coordinate it so it comes out pretty much everywhere at once?  Oh, well, that's for the executive types to decide, I guess, and they don't care what we think.

Hello,

 

Rima is a year younger than Alan, so she turned 59 today. I wish her a very happy birthday and a happy life. I hear very often that she is lucky to have Alan (and I am sure she is), but I would also like to say that he is lucky with her. I don't know her personally - has anyone of you ever met her? - but I think she is a very friendly and warmhearted person and she is Alan's support. I really wanted to write this tribute to her. Behind a good man stands a great woman.

Im pretty sure that is the result Claudia.  Like I said, it appears that the critics make a choice, and the theatergoers.  AR appears to have won the THEATERGOERS choice for Best Director and Best Play so far.  Megan as best solo actress is still to be announced.

I'm 95% certain you wont see any photos of AR at the Critics Circle Awards. I'm not there myself today as I had a job booking near home and the general concensus of opinion amongst the London snappers was "its a waste of time".

 

Waste of time celeb wise that is. To be honest, the people that are winning the Critics Choice Awards (except Michael Grandage) I have never heard of!. The Whatsonstage Awards are just an 'add on', an opportunity to announce them at a function, because they do not hold a function themselves.

 

If you look on GETTY IMAGES, Gareth is in the Press Room taking photos and has only shot the few odd presenters (Haydn Gwynne, Tim Healy etc) and the CC Award winners that are present. NONE of the WOS Award winners are there - at least not being led into in the Press room for photos 

 

If you look at WIRE IMAGE, Shami has got the even shorter straw, with a handful of people to shoot as they arrived. He's long since left and gone back to the office. Kevin Spacey is a big name, but we all shot him last Thursday at the GREAT BRITON AWARDS (yes, I know he's american).

 

I might be wrong , but dont get your hopes up for any kind of sighting of AR at the CC Awards today

Jan, two more DVD extras on the DH special edition.  There is an interactive feature where you see the scene just before Hans shoots Takagi from several different camera angles.  You get more or less of Hans, depending on which you choose, and it includes footage not seen in the film (just a few frames).  Second thing is written commentary that rolls along the bottom of the screen.  Several actors contributed to this, including our Alan.

The 'attendance' is in reference to the party in November that was held to announce the awards.  These were the photos of AR in the black leather jacket and black bag.   

 

The announcement of the winners is  held tomorrow, 1/31.  It says something about a ceremony for the winners only, I think.  Of which we assume AR and Megan are.  So maybe more sightings tomorrow?

 I think that he was probably asked  if he likes filming in LA ( we all know how he feels about the American film indurstry) and by the look of his first word "but"he decided to elaborate more about how he feels about LA. This is the quote.

 

" But I enjoy being in LA. I drive a car there and dont at home.Its disgusting and wonderful, like going to Dunkin Donuts every day."

 

Uh, you drive in LA but dont in London. I have to agree with him, i drove in LA and  i didnt find it to hard considering i come from a little place up in Canada where 2 lane roads are a rarity. But maybe since he took his license test in LA, he isnt use to the backward driving in London even though its not because he is from there and American driving should be confusing,,,,,,oh hell, im confusing myself.

OK that's your lot! Just got to the end of the dvd! I recorded it on HQ setting so I missed the last 5 minutes but saw that on the Sky+ box and there was just a fleeting glance of the back of AR's head. I shall mail the dvd to Claudia and if she wants to make any little vids she can. I don't know how to do it or otherwise I would

This is from when he was watching Helen Mirren introduce an award for Wallace & Grommit:

 

There was a nice bit whilst Sir Ian McKellan was feting Dickie Attenborough with Alan having a good laugh but Jarvis got his bloody head in the way again

Sue - Thank you so much for the screen caps. It's hard to hold back my squees until I'm in the Discussion Room!

I noticed the hair too. Many of the recent sightings have specifically mentioned how grey his hair looked. Wonder if he did something special for the awards or if it has something to do with an upcoming project?

 

With all the excitment about Snowcake at the Berlin festival, do we still think there will be "something" in Wawa or Toronto?

Apparently he likes buy his pants a wee bit to tight! If you check out Kevin Smith's diary from dogma it tells a story of when Alan went jogging ( huh,m didnt know he did that either) one day in Pittsburg ( where they filmed Dogma ) and decided to stop in one of the more exclusive shops and according to the clerk  he was a "a wee bit stinky and sweaty" and bought a pair of "way to tight pants". And i think we have been treated to a few of those pants over the years and those pictures are no exception, but he does look mighty fine ( a wee bit bored in those pictures but sweeeet looking).

I think he looked really great at the awards and his suit was divinely sophisticated!

 

This is such a great group of people to go to such great length to find, create, and share new AR stuff!  Many thanks!

 

Bluebeatbabe, I've always gotten a giggle out of that line "If you cursey, I'll kill you!" because the only picture from that event that I know of is the one with AR, KW and GW right in front of Prince Charles so I've always pictured AR trying to say that line under his breath at KW.  LOL

Watched Southbank Show last night...and there were some lingering shots of Alan on at least 4 or 5 occasions...he looked really relaxed, like he was enjoying himself...Eric Sykes was hilarious...I did n't see Rima in the crowd or sat near Alan but Juliet Stevenson was there and I think Emma Freud and the 'usual suspects'

Hope someone managed to record this, ...erm..for posterity, no, for all the lovely ladies on the GB !

Helen Mirren was there , too, I was kinda hoping Alan might present an award but , no, the camerapersons (have to try to be PC ) were good to us lingering on his beautiful face on several occasions.

I think Mary Stuart won in his category for which MNIRC was nominated.

Thanks everyone for all the pics and Ali-Pat , I did try to wish you a Happy Birthday on your special day but for some reason the GB was not processing my posts, I think it was my computer bliping !.so I hope you had a lovely day!.

Spoiler for anyone who has not seen the film ! which is probably few on this GB!
Managed to see Quigley and at the end of the film there was a paragraph stating 'No animals were hurt or killed during the making of this film' and I thought...'But ya killed Elliot!

Managed to see some of the tv videos over the weekend from the GB and was tickled by the story of Alan at the Sense and Sensibilty Premiere stood next to Kate Winslet waiting in line to meet the Queen and he said and I quote ;
'If you curtsey, I will KILL you ' ..just in the way he said it at Chelsea... !

Good Working class boy Alan ... who has n't forgot his roots !

Ali-Pat:   A belated Happy Birthday.

 

Chris: I really had planed to go to the premiere of Snow Cake  (and see the film), but that was before they made it the opening film. I don't complain because it is a really big honour. Unfortunately for the opening film you won't be able to get tickets because of all these wannabe VIPs. I fear you won't see much of Alan along the Red Carpet because of all the photographers etc. And sadly enough a Thursday isn't a day to take a day off from work to travel to Berlin and return in the night. And more so to make a second trip just to see the film. Even with my job I can't afford that. So I cancelled all plans I made between the years about the Berlinale.

I cross my fingers that the film will have good critics and make the step to the cinemas.

 

Hikity: Did I miss something about the Closet Land script?

 

Btw: Thanks for the pictures.

 

Have a nice week

I have to agree it's really a well-written book! When I was at school we had to read Perfume and I was thrilled. I think it was the first book that blew me away! But also I can understand if there are people who don't like the book. It is a strange book but when I was at school I had to read between the lines and analyse the characters. In that way I learned to love the book. I think it's like Marmite, either you love it or you hate it. But still if you try more and more you will love it in the end, just my 2 cents.

I just can't wait to see that movie because I fell in love with the book 6 years ago! And as there is such a great cast, especially Tom Tykwer and AR...

 I'm really glad that Tom Tykwer was chosen to direct this movie. In my oppinion he definitely IS the one who can adopt this special piece of writing and making a wonderful film out of it! And having read only good things about Ben Whishaw I also think he fits perfectly as Grenouille!

September seems to be such a long time though *sigh*

Hello there,

 

If I am well informed, Rima's birthday is on January 31st (this coming Tuesday). Her birthday is exactly 3 weeks before Alan's (and mine is exactly 3 weeks AFTER his.. ha ha ha). She will be 59 already. If I see pictures of her she doesn't look that "old" yet. Neither does Alan. I can hardly believe he will be 60 already. However, I have to say (I hope you are not angry with me when I write this) that that wig in Perfume does make look him old. As Snape he looks much younger. And I also like the pictures I have seen so far of Snow Cake and I do look forward to seeing it. I hope we will be able to see it here in Holland.

I imagine your face when reading you-know-what.
Well, I do recommend the book. I have it in spanish
and confess that in the first reading I found it dark and
a little bit disturbing.
I liked it much better during the re reading, after knowing
the plot I found it easier to analyze the characters.

I think it is more than a paternal gesture or maybe it is
but with some kind of mixed feelings behind it.
Just the way he loved his daugther.

Anyway, you have to read the book in order to do your
own interpretations.

I can't wait to see it on the big screen!

CatsPlay, although the book is very well written, I had a hard time getting into it.  Once I rented the available Tom Tywker films available in NetFlix and found what a fantastic director he is, I went back to the book and was able to finish it. 

 

And I agree with sue....the kiss is very paternal! 

 

sue, I bet you will be surprised with the South Bank Awards.  I remember last year SuzyQ recorded the Empire awards (just in case) and was surprised off her chair to see our fella there. So you just can never tell!

Emily, thanks for the heads up on the Entertainment Weekly issue. 

 

Orikono, CatsPlay posted a link on the other board to the David Letterman site which has a really cute clip of Emma Thompson's appearance.  I'm going to post it here too so that everyone will get the chance to see it.  Also, Jan is working with me on getting me her appearances on Ellen and Conan too.  She really looks fabulous and as usual...she is funny as heck! 

 

Only a little more over a week til Berlinale! 

 

Chris, there's not much that can be done about the spammers at the moment except to ban the IPs as they come for which I'm doing as fast as I can.  Hopefully WT will come up with a remedy.

Joining in to wish Ali Pat a belated "Happy Birthday "

Thanks to everyone, especially Keith, Sue and Emily for the South Bank awards info. I thought AR might attend. He is very elusive re. photos, but surely that is the price of being an international movie star !

    Wish I could make it to Berlin, but alas it is a work day AND the family just might have something to say if I disappeared off ! I actually know Berlin quite well because my husband's maternal family were German and lived there all their lives ( in Schoenberg ). I haven't visited since 1996 though.

It will be difficult to beat last year's birthday, which was fabulous beyond description.  But the nature gods gave me a beautiful, warm, sunny day today, I had lunch with my favorite fella (aside from AR, of course), and I got hugs and birthday cake from my mother.  All in all, a pretty good day.

There is a tiny, icon-sized picture of AR on page 21 of the Feb 3 Entertainment Weekly. It's part of a silly grid about "Die Hard" rip-offs, having to do with the new Harrison Ford movie.  The picture is from the London POA premiere. It might be this one, or one very similar.

Peekabooh, isn't it a shame, but I can't skip my Friday lessons. They are the very last courses of my exam professor. He leaves our uni to work at the Freiburg University (or better PH) and I have to talk to him about the exam in autumn and get his signature etc. Still, I am quite sure that SNOWCAKE will be screened on at least one additional day.

FYI - As you all know and have discussed, AR was at the Savoy yesterday for the South Bank Awards. The 2 small photos of him by Ken McKay of Rex will most likely be the only ones that you will see/find.

 

He must have gone in to the hotel through either the main entrance or another entrance as the other celebrities mainly entered as planned thru the Riverside entrance where the Press pens were set up. He most certainly does not appear on any Agency site in the 'Arrivals' sets of images.

 

He also did not make an appearance in the Press Room afterwards - only Awards recipients and presenters were brought in to be photographed and interviewed by TV, Print Media etc.

 

Even the main UK Celeb snappers like Dave Bennet (Getty) and Richard Young (Rex - RY was not actually there but his initials are by pics taken by his assistant) did not get shots of Alan, despite being set up in the Savoy lobby just outside the Press Room and adjacent to the rather sumptuous Hotel toilets. How many toilets have sofas in - these ones had 2 !!).

 

So I'm guessing that he arrived with Megan (I assume that is her in the pics), posed with Melvin Bragg and his wife and then went into the the Dining room where the Lunch/Awards were held. Probably also departed via the same way he arrived to avoid the hoardes (about 10) fans who were waiting outside the expected entrance/exit area.

 

It might be when the show airs on TV, he will appear for a moment on screen. I cant tell because although they had a live feed to the Press room, we only had time to watch while we were waiting for Award recipients to enter, but obviously had no chance while we were shooting.

 

His last 2 London appearances have also been fleeting - if you recall a couple of images on Rex from the Theatregoers Choice nominations where I think (I was not there) he arrived late. And another RY pic from another.

 

Whether he turns up for the Whatsonstage Awards - despite winning 2 of them is debateable. There is no actual awards show. They are just being announced lunchtime online. In conjunction with the Critics Choice Awards, which I know little about.

 

So Berlinale might be the next AR sighting....

If Alan is suppose to be accepting two awards ( oh , and he will) for MNIRC and Best Director on the 31st then i say he is probably in London now. As for cast readings, does anyone know if they do all the cast together or scene by scene as then Alan if he did indeed agree to play Snape wouldnt be needed until his scenes would come up...dunno. I have a feeling that Snape is not going to get alote of screen time this film, there should be  as there is alote of him in the book ( specially occulmency, at least we know there will be one major occulmency lesson with Snape as they have hired young Snape, Remus, James and Sirius actors to play out the Snapes Worst Memory scene0) I can honestly tell you that even if Alan does not do Snape any further, no matter who they replace him with will not do justice and i will never stop seeing the Snape that i know(specially when i read book 7). And i will definitly see out the rest of the movies as i am also a HP nut, just not a AR nut.Now, my gut feeling is Alan will continue as i cant see him abandoning a major British film phenom as HP.  But will they ask him is the question, maybe they are going for a younger looking Snape around the same age as Remus and Sirius. ( 40ish). Lets hope. I dont think i have heard anything in the future for Alan except MNIRC- and he wasnt at all the shows in London when it was there so lets hope he signed on.

If he isnt in the UK (which I still believe he is in NY) then surely he aint going to be Snape in OotP.

This is a different awards show than the one we voted for.  The one with AR for Director, Megan for solo actress and MNiRC is the WhatsonStage awards, which is being held on 1/31 I think.

MC is definitely one of my favourite AR movies, for sure.  Being from Ireland, myself, I suppose I had special interest in it (besides Alan) when I first saw it.  But Alan gives a very impressive take on de Valera; he had his mannerisms down to a tee.   But hey, that's just Alan.  One finds it rather hard to flaw any of his performances ... apart from the odd dodgy accent here and there.

Gosh, when you put the two pictures together, Michelle, the resemblance is uncanny.  MC is really a good film and AR shines in it.  Yes, there was some genius casting going on in that film...it just seemed to run a little dry though when they cast Kitty Kiernan.

Hey, again.

 

Just wanted to draw your attention to a post I made over on LJ, discussing the insanely accurate physical resemblance between Alan and the 'character' he played in Michael Collins, Éamon de Valera.

 

What d'ya think?  Some genius casting, eh?

OK, by digging around manually on the DVD on my computer I've located one interview, but it didn't say everything that I read he had said (talked about reading comic books as a kid, other stuff).  So I guess I still haven't found everything.  Anyway, here's some screen shots from it for your viewing pleasure.

delurking here, I've been reading this thread, and i want to ask:  What pray tell is so un-usual about a Theatre asking for donations to put on a Play.. You obviously are trying to cast suspicsion on people who are only trying to get the Play seen..Perhaps it is as was stated Someone backed out of donating at the last minute, and they had to make up the funds. 

 

You obviously do not know much about the workings of the theatre, or of fund raising to get a play produced.

 

And casting aspersions on the genuiness of the letter only hurts Alan Rickman...Someone you CLAIM to admire.  I daresay He'd be appauled at the lingering doubts you all have  about the backing of his play.

My begging letter for MNiRC came yesterday, IMHO it's genuinely from the Royal Court (I saw the play in April so will be on a mailing list somewhere, I suppose!)

I'm wondering if all the finance was in place and someone backed out unexpectedly at the last minute and they are having to replace the money in a hurry for the thing to go ahead, the appeal for sponsors may be one of several lines of enquiry. I'm sure AR could cover it, but I doubt he has £50k just lying around in used £20 notes in his sock drawer. If he's sensible, his money will be tied up in investments which may take some time to liquidate, in the meantime, all they need is 50 people to put up £1k each, and hey presto! No good looking at me then, but that kind of money is peanuts to some of the City theatre-going types, so it's worth a punt on the theatres behalf. Just MHO.

Kathy, thanks for your thoughts on the play script for MNiRC.  It truly does amaze me at the people that will criticize a play/book/movie without ever seeing/reading it.  And this doesn't just happen with MNiRC.  It goes on all the time. And example that comes to my mind first is Fahrenheit 9/11.  When someone wanted to discuss it with me, my first question was "Have you seen it?"  If they hadn't (and there were a few that hadn't), I just told them to see it and then come back for a discussion.  I have no patience for stuff like that. 

 

RickiNicki, I've added your cute little emotie.  Thanks.

 

  Orikono!  It has been a while.  Good to see you back.  I wish I could help with the ET interview.  If I had read this earlier, I could have set my VCR.  I would have loved to see it too. 

 

Severina, the letter from TRC definitley looks like a mass mailing to "friends" in their database so its possible yours might still arrive.

I just finished reading the script for Rachael Corrie.

Ladies (and gentlemen if you are there) it is extraordinary.  That is one exceptional young lady.

It definitely is not political, but describes her experiences.  More than half is about her life before Gaza.  I hope that those who criticize it read the play or see it first, it is really a gem.  The writing is wonderful and the editing  really captures the essence of an extraordinary young woman.  I got it at the uni from inter-library loan--it is a quick read and well worth it.

Now you come to think of it, the donation request is a bit odd. It's also strange that there is nothing on the Royal Court Theatre site about it, either. The other query I have is, if donations are made, who gets any profits from a good run (which it surely would have) being that the general public have made donations. It is known that AR made a £50,000 donation to RADA. If he is as passionate about this as implied, surely he would put up the required funds? (Of course, he may have already). Sending out letters here and there is not going to get them £50,000 either. I can't decide whether this is the Royal Court being very naive, or a big mistake. I'm afraid this is one thing I am not interested in donating to, even though I would love you guys in the US to see it.

Kosslick endured withering criticism last year from German journalists for a poorly received opening film, "Man to Man." Cynics said it was only chosen because its stars Kristin Scott Thomas and Joseph Fiennes promised to come to Berlin.


So . . . it seems that Kosslick has learned his lesson by setting "Snow Cake" as the opening film!  Ohhhh, I hope the film lives up to everyone's expectations!  I'm sure it will but being the opening film seems to carry a lot of pressure, doesn't it?

I'm just chiming in to agree with Thea. I also read the article in the Times about the shortage of space on Broadway. MNIRC couldn't get a theater if it wanted to.Several off-Broadway plays that have been very successful and could be up for awards cannot move to Broadway and are thus not eligible for Tonys. It's very strange that they set such a specific date without mentioning which theater they're going to. Of course, the play might not go on Broadway but then it wouldn't be eligible for Tonys. And then there's the issue of the amount of money they're asking for. 50,000k is chickenfeed in terms of renting space in New York.

But then again, if they're asking for checks they would have to be made out to the Royal Court Theater so if they are scammers they wouldn't be able to cash them
.
And in terms of negative publicity and politics- pfft. New Yorkers can handle it. The only New Yorkers who picket are in the unions, heh. Oh, and we do the occasional anti-war/Bush protest. Or the uh constant crazy socialists in Union Square but they're there for our amusement, really. The only problem might be a lack of interest and or protest from people outside New York who make up a significant part of Broadway profits. But I really do believe the play could be incredibly successful if it finds a way to get here.

So yeah, until there's a response from the Theater, I wouldn't donate. And lets knock on wood for MNIRC.

Emily brought up some very important points about the donation request. This would be an invitation to huge scandel. Yes, AR is open about the causes he supports and he doesn't seem shy about voicing his opinion on issues that could raise "conservative" eyebrows (politics, war, etc). But, IMHO, I don't think AR would so innocent as to make a general request for funds.

 

IF this fund drive is legitimate, surely someone else came up with the idea?

The South Bank Theater Awards are scheduled for Jan 27 at the Savoy Hotel in London.  MNiRC is nominated for the theater category. 

 

The WhatsonStage Theatergoers Choice Awards will be held on January 31 (not sure where this is being held).  AR is nominated, as well as Megan Dodds and MNiRC.

 

I know everyone knows that (although I don't remember much discussion about the South Bank awards), but I just thought I'd point it out that, with these and the film festival, and then Olivier awards on 2/26, it could be a month or so filled with great AR pics & other info!  Yay!

 

I am annoyed that I am going to be on a cruise through 2/11, meaning I will miss the live activites related to the Snow Cake premiere.  However, it does seem that the Berlinale site has a wonderful archive of everything, so hopefully I can catch up.

I made a 600 dpi scan but it's 3.33 mb.  The above is 300 dpi and was 786 kb so was resized by Photobucket.

 

If anyone would like a 600 dpi scan of any or all of the 5 photos of Snape in the calendar (not all new, of course) and you can't get them yourself, let me know and I'll be happy to email them.

 

It sounds very odd to me that an email asking for donations for a stage production would be legitimate.  Also, I agree that this is VERY LATE to be collecting donations for a production in March.  Surely you can't get your play into a theater anywhere in just a couple of weeks!  Time will tell. . . .

At first glance at the letter I didn't see the donation thing at all. But now it also sounds suspicious to me.

Hi all,

 

Coming out of long-time lurking to "second" the MNiRC skepticism.  I've been keeping a close lookout at websites and the newspapers and haven't heard so much as a whisper about the show. (of course, I have no inside info.)  I notice the donation appeal says a "spring production."  A March opening seems unlikely at this late date.  The NY Times Arts section published a story just yesterday about how a sucessful theater season had made it rough for off-Broadway show to move to Broadway and how space was just all-around tight.  Off course, AR has been seen here, which could mean he is in negotiations.  Hope so!  As to an appeal for donations: sounds strange.  Guess we'll have to wait-and-see!

 

My best.

Thanks Claudia. See, this shows how naive AR is about American politics. You know what a political football PBS has been, right?  Because it solicits donations from the public and private sector, some faction or other is always screaming about PBS programming being biased towards one view or another.  What if a pro-Palestinian organization puts up a significant donation to bring Rachel Corrie over?  Can you imagine the outcry from pro-Israel groups (especially in NY!!!) ?  Or what if a group like the ACLU or something puts up some money? Then the conservative politicians will go squawking about the ACLU or whatever sponsoring a "terrorist sympathiser" play. Asking for donations automatically gives detractors a much bigger target to shoot at.  And, I know that AR has said it's not a "political" play, but the donation scheme  raises the probability that it will be perceived as a political play and made into a political issue, based on who donates money. This is really, really not a wise move.

You may be very well right, Emily.  What really struck me strange was the statement that the play is coming in March but yet on the other hand, they're asking for financial support.  If the financial end hasn't been worked out, how can they say it will come to NY in March?   

 

I found this over at Suzanne's.  Sheena posted the official form for donations

 

Yet another question...why in the world would the British public care if MNiRC came to the US or not?  And to the tune of £50,000????

 

Now don't get me wrong.....if this thing is on the up and up, I'll be one of the first to donate and proclaim it high and low. But until some official word comes down, call me "Skeptical Sally".

The "donation" appeal for MNIRC sounds really odd. What it might mean is that no NY producer was interested in bringing the play over. No big surprise, given the political realities and the economic realities. 

 

For all we know, AR has put up some money and the $100,000 the Royal Court mentioned is the rest of the sum needed to rent a theater in NY and pay costs.  At any rate, there is no official news of this on Playbill, or any of the other NY theater sites or even on the Royal Court site itself -- strange, because March is not far away.

I wasn't able to watch Emma on the View today, sorry.  As for the GMA appearance, I am embarassed to say that I was distracted and wasn't paying very good attention to it.  I was watching more closely when they first surprised her and told her Phyllida was on the phone, and Emma was hilariously shocked, and said, "You cow!" to Phyllida, but then I didn't actually hear the rest. 

 

I did notice that Emma had on very large hoop earrings that were studded with pave diamonds.  And did I hear correctly, Emma wrote the screenplay for Nannie McPhee??

 

Sorry.

Thanks for the heads up on the Emma Thompson appearances.  I didn't set my VCR as I had planned for The View so would you mind reporting any goodies from her interview? 

 

Also, I'm curious as to Phyllida Law's answer about ET's behavior as a child on Good Morning America.  I would be willing to bet ET was mischievous child!  LOL

Here's what Sheena posted in the AR Yahoo group.

 

I have had a letter today from The Royal Court Theatre announcing that "My Name is Rachel Corrie" will be in New York during March 2006.  However they need to raise £50,000 so they are asking for donations.
 
If you would like a copy of the letter please email me, I have tried photobucket but it seems to be shrinking it so that it is unreadable. 
 
It does say for more information to email Elyse Dodgson elysedodgson@royalcourttheatre.com or phone 020-7565-5041 Failing that the address on the donation form they included with the letter is Chris James chrisjames@royalcourttheatre.com or phone 020-7565-5042.

 

Taking donations?????

Omigosh!!! (checking calendar and vacation budget)  New York in March!!  I will definitely stay tuned for more news. 

 

And now, corrections, corrections, corrections (and I am not talking about the famous Oprah averse best-seller).  I gave some incorrect information about The Grass Widow that I need to amend.  Must maintain my reputation, you know.  AR's character (Dennis) is not romantically involved with Tracey Ullman's character (Carmen).  Tracey Ullman played the girlfriend of yet another gangster (Andre).  Dennis is involved with a character named Lorraine, who is indeed the wife/widow of the missing/dead drug lord and he is maintaining their estate for them.  One of the more interesting changes he has made is to stock the hot tub with pirhannas.

 

I had forgotten until I reread it what a funny play The Grass Widow is!  No need to spend big bucks to get it, either.  Public and academic libraries have it for loan, plus you can buy it as part of a compilation of Snoo Wilson's work called Plays 2.

 

Later, all.

Rickinicki- I agree about the hair- I love it! Maybe its just because I used to have a crush on a guy with blond hair cut like that. My friend said he looked like a mushroom.

I, like most people here probably, think AR gets cuter as he gets older but I do love those pics from the Grass Widow. In some of the other pics of him when he was young he looked a bit awkward but he looks really good in that play. So that's the play that he appeared nude in? He had a nice body back then

*HP spoilers*



I also doubt that Dumbledore is still alive. In most novels, the mentor figure has to die so that the young hero can become independent. I was always intrigued by Snape because he was such a slimy guy. I doubt that he's entirely evil, though.He reminds me alot of Gollum. I wonder if he will follow in Gollum's footsteps in the end and unwittingly aid Harry.

I kinda felt that IM did not do himself any favours though. He came over as a really nice guy, yes, but a bit of a "queen" with a strange taste in men! (And I'm not implying anything as I have some very good gay friends) Must see TV though!

Alfan, I kinda liked Snape from the start.  Then again, I saw the first 2 movies and read the books after.  The movie version of Snape is a jerk, but I loved to hate him, so I went into the books w/ Alan as Snape.  He was a favorite of mine right off.  I actually expect Snape to die in book 7.  I don't buy the DD is still alive theories.  I do think that Snape killed him on orders to do so though...  I should probably talk more about this in the other guest book...

 

Ali-Pat, there is nothing more wonderful then the mental image of young Alan Rickman sunbathing in the nude.  I thank you for that glorious thought.

Dee, my foggy recollections of The Grass Widow are that AR plays the caretaker or poolboy of some gangster's estate (the "grass" in the title is a double entendre) and gets involved with his wife or ex-wife or widow (played by Tracy Ullman).  I also clearly remember that AR's character opens the play by sunbathing in the nude.  Want to read it now?

A really frosty "good  morning" from the Siberian outpost Frankfurt. It's around -12°C.

 

It seems there is a good chance that Alan Rickmann will be at the opening of the Berlinale. Judging from a Berlin newspaper article he, Sigorney Weaver and Marc Evans will be there as a kind of duty.

 

But sadly I won't be able to go to Berlin. It couldn't have been a more inapt date than that. But there is still the TV coverage.

Sorry you are having trouble with Megaupload.  I had quite an ordeal trying to get it uploaded (it took 2 hours).  You might want to let it run all night while you sleep or something.   Also, the 'medium' sized version is available via YouSendit, that might work better and the quality is still very good. 

 

Or, you can just watch online via the YouTube link, which seems to work pretty well and the quality is good, albiet just a smaller screen, there.  Note, if YouTube is 'choppy' - starting and stopping, if you just let it play through to the end and go get a cup of coffee or something else, and then come back -- when it has played through once you can replay it and it should play straight through.

 

Hope that helps!

I totally agree with the Alan is sooooooo good at playing the bad guy part, kinda what he is famous for. I have said many times to my friends Alan Rickman and alote of them say who? And i say, come on, the guy who plays Snape, Medatron, Alexander Dane, the guy who cheats on his wife in Love Actually ( more recent movies) and they still stare blankly at me. So i say, you know, Hans Gruber from Die Hard, Sherrif of Nottingham. and they suddenly say oooooooooooohhhhhh, that guy- he was funny and bad as the sherrif or he was hot in Die Hard...... I also agree with the fact that JKR could be leading us down a path that is somwhat obscured from the truth. I mean she has thrown us a loop every book so far.

Book one-we dont like him in the beginning but like him in the end

Book two-dont like him because he is so mean to Harry

Book three-kinda feel sorry for him, didnt get what he deserved

Book four-kinda dont like him because he is up to somthing

Book five-feel sorry for him because of his childhood and upbringing

Book six- hate the bugger but still feel like there is hope

 

JKR will keep us guessing to the end  with different emotions for Snape in each book, and weather she makes him to be evil or makes him a redeemed hero of some sort she has always made us guess  ( and hope ) and will continue to do so. To me that is a bit of talanted and absolutly brilliant writing.

 

(But i can see a Misery thing happening if she decides to kill him off, bring out the sledgehammers and re-write the ending JKR) hee hee.

Thanks for the information Carol!

However, I don't really believe this. I think Rowling is trying to lead everyone on the wrong path. I also heard she said that Harry would die in Book 7 to make sure that there will be no sequels, but I can't really believe that, especially when thinking about the prophecy in OotP.

Anyway... I don't think AR's decision about playing Snape in OotP and the other films depends on how his character will turn out to be in Book 7. He has played so many bad bad guys and he's sooooo good in it.

Spoiler alert...

 

...and slightly off-topic.

 

I'm coming out of lurkdom to mention an article that appeared in today's Washington Post (reprinted on delawareonline.com.) 

 

In the article, JK Rowling is quoted as saying that readers that believe that Dumbledore and Snape have a pact "cling to some desperate hope."  If she's been quoted accurately, I think it could be a big hint as to good-vs-evil Snape, and the future events in HP book seven. . .

 

You can read the Delaware Online version by clicking:

 

http://www.delawareonline.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20060123/LIFE/601230306/1005

 

I've believed for some time that AR has known the basic direction in which the Snape character would go, because of the reports we've all heard about how JKR personally convinced him to play Snape and told him the general direction of the story and character.  So something tells me that none of this would come as a surprise to him, although it's only a guess and I could be 100% wrong.  But at this point, I honestly don't think that the notion of Snape being "evil" would deter AR from continuing in the role. . .and I admit this may fully be wishful thinking on my part.

 

I hope that soon we will hear that he has indeed signed for the next movie (to date, I've heard no such thing and forgive me if the news has already been announced elsewhere.) And I hope even more that the delay in any news of his signing is due to cunning negotiation on the part of Alan's agents---to me, Snape is by far one of the most important characters in the HP universe and Alan deserves to be exceptionally well compensated for his superb interpretation of Snape.

As for That Book.  I do agree that its written badly but I just have a hard time believing that its so full of lies.  Basically its nothing but stuff from his career which is public record.  I really think Maureen Paton gets a really bad rap from AR fans but that's just me, I suppose.

I have to confess that although I'd never pay money to buy That Book, I took it out of the library and am currently working my way through it.  It really is a tough go because of the abysmal writing but I do have to admit that I find it interesting.  It's pretty easy to tell when Paton passes off her opinion as fact, and I do take even the "facts" presented with a HUGE grain of salt because AR himself has said that the book is full of lies.  But I can't help it.  I'd probably read anything with the man's name in it.

I feel the same way, INTJ, re: That Book.  It took me about three months to slog my way through it when I borrowed it from a pal, and that was back when I was a relatively new AR fan and so a bit desperate for info about him.  I completely understand people wanting to check out all things AR (I did and still do!) and would never tell anyone not to do so.  Yet I think you get the most accurate and detailed picture of AR The Man--well, as accurate and detailed as he's comfortable showing, at least--from reading the different interview archives and fan encounters, and just watching the man at work. 

 

IMO, Paton should try her hand at fiction writing, since she seems to enjoy making things up.

Claudia, however did you guess I don't care for that horrible book at all...  

 

Seriously, I loathe that book. It is filled with nothing but baseless assumptions, things Paton made up, took out of context and twisted to suit those assumptions. She presents her opinions as facts, twists what info she has while leaving out those facts that would contradict her and using only those bits that support those weird assumptions of hers. *retches some more* I absolutely detest that book.

HI ALL,
Thanks Lexi ? for that pic from Barcelona ...lovely as Rowan Atkinson might say...perhaps we need to smear Alan with chocolate buttons...now let's see..where shall I start ?

Did anyone see The South Bank Show last night a year in the life of Ian Mc Kellan...very interesting... he emptied a goodie bag from the Golden Globes/or the Oscars and asked the question.. what shall I do with all this...I don't need it!
Interesting discussion about his role as Twankey and the influence of Northern comics Les Dawson and Norman Evans cast in the role of strong northern women.

He has quite a sense of humour our Ian, very tongue in cheek and sometimes risque.

It even showed his apartment in Docklands and gave an insight into his life. I can't imagine Alan ever agreeing to do something like this...fascinating, but it would be far too intrusive for Alan to even contemplate.... although I would love him to do the Actor's Studio.

hi, I see Sue posted the link to my post. I must say I've been quite the lurker around here but I tend to be busy with university and don't manage to check it daily and thus haven't felt confident enough to say 'hi'. About the picture, feel free to move it around as far as there's some kind of credit I have no problem whatsoever

 

I have to answer all the comments in the community, but I may "kill" a few birds here already I haven't written about when I met him, or not in any post that makes sense, I will try and type it up and share it with you all over here and in lj. <- one of the reasons alongside the fact that I don't have much time tonight why I haven't answered the lj comments.

 

After all that, I must say I'm a devoted fan of this webpage and of one Mr. Rickman (I bet no one here knows who he is, right?). I'm from Barcelona, making it far easier to meet AR this past summer, and I really don't know what else to say so will leave it there.

Alanfan, you probably read about Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat on the resume that Suzanne has posted on her site.  He played Asher and it was at performed at The Haymarket Theatre in Leicester in 1975.  I don't recall ever seeing any photos from the production.

Sorry I was a bit obscure, yes Guys and Dolls and yes to Technicolor dream coat. He was in it, he was in the touring company of Ken?? the names gone, I can't remember. Nor can I remember where I read it. It could have been the bibliography at the back of that book, it couldn't have been in the book because although I have it I have never read it.

Hello Marty and welcome aboard our great little group!  I hope you will stay with us. 

 

Sue!!!  That nice little photo was a brilliant find!  From more recent photos, we know the gray at the temples is for real but I can't help but wonder if some of the other is from the white powder they used with the wig.  Either way....he looks fabulous!

 

Thanks for the info on John Noakes, Elaine.  He sounds a bit like a blast from our past called Captain Kangaroo. But he's been off the air for many years now. 

 

Dee, the siting in New York was on the 18th and Sundance started on the 19th and goes through the 29th.  Nothing saying he didn't hop a plane and head over to Utah but its my belief that he probably isn't over here for the festival.  I really think it has to do with MNiRC. I have nothing concrete so its just my speculation.  Also, anyone that's interested in Sundance, can pop over to Sundance Film Festival 2006 for news and video from the festival.  I've also been scouring over the festival pics at each of the image services and have found none of interest so far. 

 

Juliet! That's a great idea!  A virtual party of some sort.  We'll put some thought to it and see what we can come up with.

Nice pic, Sue, thanks for the link.

BTW, re: birthday, I wouldn't be a bit surprised if AR chose to be away for the big day, working or not, as I get the feeling from stuff I've read over the years, that he's a bit sensitive about his age and wouldn't want to be anywhere where there will be a fuss, looking back, stocktaking or any of the other stuff that often happens when a body turns 60. If he's any sense he'll go somewhere for a nice quiet romantic getaway with Rima, and if she can't make it, I'm free! LOL!

Are we planning anything special on here that day, virtual on-line get-together party or anything?

Is there a release date for SnowCake yet? I was also wondering if it would end up being like The Search for John Gissing and not be released at all?

Overview         previous | next        
Jan 18, 2006:
The Berlinale Competition Programme Is Nearing Completion: Debut Films and Master Directors
The selection for the Competition programme of the 56th Berlin International Film Festival is nearing completion: 23 of the 26 films have been confirmed. Aside from the nine films already announced (see press release from 20 Dec. 2005) another 14 entries have been invited, including 11 world premieres. The Berlinale will open on February 9 with Marc Evans’ drama Snow Cake, starring Alan Rickman and Sigourney Weaver in the leading roles.

Alongside Oskar Roehler’s Elementarteilchen (The Elementary Particles) and Hans-Christian Schmid’s Requiem, the Competition will present two more world premieres of German films: in Der freie Wille (The Free Will), director Matthias Glasner (Die Mediocren) follows a man who has been released from prison after serving twelve years for multiple rape. Jürgen Vogel plays this man who is so driven by inner forces; Sabine Timoteo, a young woman who wants to free him from his restraints.

Valeska Grisebach (Be My Star) recounts the story of a love triangle set in the German eastern provinces in Sehnsucht. The film, with its cast of amateurs, reflects on dreams and departures, as well as on the search for happiness and related sufferings and hopes.

The Berlinale Competition is screening the world premiere of A Prairie Home Companion (USA), an ensemble comedy by master director Robert Altman. The story is about a legendary radio show which is taken off the air after thirty years. Altman, the winner of several Berlinale prizes, has assembled an unparalleled cast of stars, including Meryl Streep and Lily Tomlin, Woody Harrelson, Kevin Kline and John C. Reilly.

Screening out of competition, Bennett Miller’s biopic Capote portrays the extravagant and dazzling writer Truman Capote, and the origins of his non-fiction novel "In Cold Blood". The title role of this writer so torn by inner conflicts is played by Philip Seymour Hoffman (Golden Globe 2006).

Also running out of competition will be the world premiere of V for Vendetta (USA/Germany) by James McTeigue, a screen adaptation of the graphic novel. Natalie Portman and Hugo Weaving star in the film which was made at the film studios in Babelsberg. V for Vendetta is set in a futuristic landscape in Britain that is governed by a fascist regime, and depicts the loss of freedom and personal identity in a totalitarian world. The screenplay was written by the Wachowsky brothers (Matrix).

Claude Chabrol’s world premiere L'ivresse du pouvoir (Comedy of Power) is a French-German co-production. In this political thriller Isabelle Huppert plays an uncompromising examining magistrate who is investigating against the managing director of a large group of companies. As things progress, she is confronted with the full extent of her own power.

Director Michel Gondry has two films at the Berlinale: in addition to his documentary Dave Chappelle's Block Party in the Panorama, the Oscar-winner (for Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind) is presenting The Science of Sleep. The French production is screening out of competition. A young man withdraws completely into his dreams, neglecting real life until he begins to confuse his dream world with reality. The leads are performed by Gaël Garcia Bernal and Charlotte Gainsbourg, two of the most distinguished actors of their generation.

With Romanzo Criminale (Crime Novel), Italian director and actor Michele Placido (The Octopus) has staged a gangster drama about corruption against a historical backdrop. The film is based on a novel by judge Giancarlo De Cataldo and focuses on a dark chapter in Italian history involving the Mafia, terrorism, corruption and politics. In the film a group of gangsters aspires to dominate all of Rome with their criminal organization. The protagonists are played by Kim Rossi Stuart, Anna Mouglalis and Stefano Accorsi, among others.

Following In this World, for which Michael Winterbottom received the Golden Bear in 2003, the British director has once again taken up an explosive political issue in The Road to Guantanamo. The film traces three Muslims from Great Britain who were held without being charged at Guantanamo Bay prison camp for two years. Winterbottom’s world premiere combines elements of fiction, authentic reports and interviews.

The world premiere En Soap is a Danish-Swedish co-production. In her directorial debut, Pernille Fischer Christensen portrays the tragicomic relationship between the owner of a beauty clinic and a transsexual. Trine Dyrholm and David Dencik play the leads.

After such highly regarded documentaries as Megacities or Workingman's Death, Austrian director Michael Glawogger will present Slumming, his second feature film, as a world premiere. The Austrian-Swiss co-production is a black comedy about two yuppies who play nasty tricks on others. One of these practical jokes turns out to have fatal consequences for everyone involved. The movie features August Diehl as one of the yuppies and Paulus Manker as the city tramp.

The Argentine-French-German co-production El Custodio is a psychological study about the body guard of a top politician who so dedicated that he is in danger of losing his own identity. Rodrigo Moreno was a member of the directing trio of El Descanso (Sweet Repose), which received several festival awards. El Custodio is the first film he has directed on his own and is screening in the Competition as a world premiere. It was realized with the support of the World Cinema Fund. The film stars Julio Chávez, Osvaldo Djeredjian and Adrián Andrada.

Zemestan (It’s Winter), a world premiere by Persian director Rafi Pitts, has been invited from Iran. The film is a neo-realistic study on living and working conditions in the outskirts of Teheran. Ali Nicksaulat, Mitra Hadjar, Hashem Abdi and Said Orkani play the leading roles.

In Isabella (Hong Kong, China) by Pang Ho-cheung, a police officer in Macao is suddenly confronted with the fact that he is a young girl’s father. Whereas he would like to continue his life as a bachelor, his daughter insists on moving into his apartment. This world premiere features Chapman To and Isabella Leong. Pang Ho-cheung’s comedy Men Suddenly in Black won him the best new director award at the Hong Kong Film Festival.

The following, previously announced Competition films will also be screening:

- Candy by Neil Armfield, Australia (World Premiere)
- Elementarteilchen (The Elementary Particles) by Oskar Roehler, Germany
(World Premiere)
- Grbavica by Jasmila Zbanic, Austria/Bosnia-Herzegovina/Germany/Croatia
(World Premiere)
- Invisible Waves by Pen-ek Ratanaruang, Netherlands/Thailand/Republic of
Korea (World Premiere)
- The New World by Terrence Malick, USA (Out of Competition)
- Requiem by Hans-Christian Schmid, Germany (World Premiere)
- Snow Cake by Marc Evans, Great Britain/Canada (World Premiere)
- Syriana by Steve Gaghan, USA (Out of Competition)
- Wuji / The Promise by Chen Kaige, Hong Kong, China/USA (Out of
Competition)

John Noakes was a presenter on "Blue Peter" which must be the longest running kid's programme ever! Still going today, and the model for all kid's "current affairs" programmes. We all watched it when we were younger and the object of every kid from my era was to get a Blue Peter badge! (I never made it). Noakes used to do all sort of "dangerous" things and had a dog called Shep.It's a very Brit thing, I'm afraid and difficult to explain to someone who has never seen it but it has evolved and given we brits a lot of "famous" quotes, eg "Here's one I made earlier", "Sticky back plastic" and "Get down Shep"!!!

Just spotted this on gawker.com:

 

"I saw Alan Rickman in the John Barrett salon above Bergdorf’s on January 18th. He was tall, distinguished, with that intense, slightly squinty gaze of his and head full of gray hair (although still surprising not to see him in black-haired Snape mode). I think he was waiting for someone rather than getting his hair done himself…he looked rather bored in the salon, and no one seemed to bother him."

 

So apparently Mr. Rickman is (still?) in NY...

Red Tango!  Fantastic caricature!  Come out of that sock and tell us if you are the one responsible!    You people are sooooo talented!  It really does put me to shame! 

 

That's an interesting development, CatsPlay.  I wonder what's up with that. 

 

Good catch, Sarah.  I completely missed that in the letter.  I know yall are tired of reading this from me...but maybe his absence has something to do with MNiRC.  Oh well, if its work related, I'm sure we will hear or read about it at some point in time. 

 

I'm getting so excited about Berlinale!  Will any of our friends here be able to make it to Berlin during this time?  I hope there will lots of TV coverage about Snow Cake

 

Ali-Pat, I would love to have a BC discussion!  I haven't read the books (lazy me) but I would love for you to post the curious details you're finding. 

 

I've had a lot of people asking me about the RADA donation for AR's birthday.  I heard from the fabulous hard working Catherine this morning about when we might expect to see a link so we can throw our money into this wonderful organization known as RADA. This is what she had to say. 

 

Catherine wrote:

Hiya Claudia

Good to hear from you.

I contacted RADA first thing this month, but it's taken them a while to get to this, which is a shame, but understandable due to them needing to get their term up and running.

I understand that this week they are hoping to finalise the setup of the Justgiving webpage, so I have just e-mailed them again to see if we can get the ball rolling early next week.

I really do hope we can top last year's total, so fingers crossed.

Will be in touch again next week, have a great weekend.

Very best wishes

Red Tango--that is an excellent caricature!  Where did it come from?  Is it fan art?  If so, it is the best I have ever seen.

 

Anybody feel like talking about The Barchester Chronicles?  I am reading the books it is based on and am finding out many curious details...

Some infos about the Berlinale. The time which I use is CET, which is GMT + 1  and the date is the German date.

 

1. The opening ceremony will be on 09.02.06 around 19.00.

 

2.  The award ceremony will be on the evening of the 18.02.06 also starting around 19.00. The announcement of the winners of the Goldenen and Silbernen Bären will take place about noon the same day (or maybe one day earlier).

You're right Sarah. The Berlinale runs the 19th Feb. and I believe I read the awards are given the last day. He may be in Germany.

About the letter from MP to the girls with the book..... Alan is actually out of the UK in February so I doiubt he'll be filmin OOtP. The letter says "Rest assured they will forward it derectly to Mr. Rickman on his return to the UK."

It has intrigued me as to what he's doing. The letter doesnt actually say he's filmin anything in February.

Just to cleare that up

No, no, no, that's not the best example! See Sense & SensibilityRobin Hood!  The voice!!!!  Brad just doesn't have the intensity or whatever quality it is that that has addicted all of us.

The new HP film is what I immediately assumed but I don't have any concrete evidence of it.  I just remember during the London GoF premiere that several of the stars said they had just been informed that shooting for the next film would start in Feb.

Claudia (& Emily): I LOVE those answers Alan gave in that interview!  I'm with CatsPlay - what a shame it's not on video!  I also loved Hugh Grant's reference to the 'love between Blair and Bush.'

 

As to Alan filming in February not in London - HP isn't filmed IN London, is it?  There is that audio interview of people at the hotel the adults stayed in while filming, so I got the impression it's located somewhere else in the UK??  Also, there's an article on Mugglenet (I think) about how it's going to cost the production company 2 mil pounds to hold offices, etc. open while Dan Radcliffe & Emma Watson take their exams in June - so they must plan on filming through that time - who knows what month(s) Alan will actually be doing his bits in the OotP?  Just a thought. . . .

Oh Peekabooh, I'm sorry it didn't work for you. Okey, it is the link to AR message board in IMDB, it's from a specific thread of one of the girls who were preparing a book for AR's birthday, as a birthday gift for him. Apparently, Melanie Parker informed them that AR wouldn't be in London at the time but making a movie somewhere else, so the delivery in person of the gift won't be possible. It's what I understood.

Claudia, what a coincidence!
Yesterday I saw Blow Dry again and, like you, it was there that I knew about Bill Nighy for first time. Later, in Love Actually, he is excellent.

Awww, I'm sure Nicki and Anca are disappointed but it looks like they understand why it has to be.  At least MP is making arrangements for them to be able to deliver their gift personally rather than mail it. 

 

Ohhh yes, Blow Dry!  When I was ranting the other day about why AR doesn't do more British films, I had forgotten about this little gem.  Not only does AR do a fantastic job with his character, Phil, but this is also the first film where I noticed the hilarious Bill Nighy!

She told the people from ICM (the office that works for many celebreties in the UK, also for Alan) we bring the book next Feb. and they will make sure Alan will receive the book as soon as he is back in London. "

He works a lot...

CatsPlay, I screwed up on not seeing that image before!  (my memory sucks)   How could I have forgotten this???  It has Bill Nighy in it too! 

 

Our hard searching friend Emily posted it along with a translated version of the interview back in May.  We had quite a conversation about AR's response to one of the questions.   

 

I thought our non-French speaking friends might like to see the translated version again.

This is for Claudia. I found this recently and I hope it will cheer her up. It's a transcript from a French site of a Love Actually press conference in Paris. Here's the picture from it - never saw this one before.

 

 

And this is the translation courtesy of Deb, Montreal. AR only answers a couple of questions, but his second answer is a winner. :

 

In Love Actually, you play the Prime Minister of Great Britain: What are, in your opinion, the advantages and inconveniences of this job?
HG: If I was Prime Minister, I couldn't stand such responsibility. As well, I would have to be interested in others and I'm much too self-absorbed for that. I imagine also that I would abuse the power that had been given to me: Caligula is the perfect figure of power, in my opinion.

How does this film differ from other comedies?
Richard Curtis: This comedy is totally different from others! There are 9 true love stories(isn't that innovative?!).
AR: This one is funny...
Martine McCutcheon:Contrary to films which are 100% romantic, this one has real depth, real sadness.
RC:In my next film you will have a very small role if this keeps up...
HG: The film isn't at all different. Richard & I have made 5 similar films. What is interesting is the very British aspect of the movie: the idea that there can be English love stories makes one smile. It isn't like you French, who are so romantic by nature. The priorities for we English are: dogs, beer, playing golf and making money.

One often has the impression that European cinema has a complex when it comes to American cinema.
RC: I don't have the feeling that European cinema has looked at American cinema as a big brother. The best movies speak about what we know, it's simple. In Europe, among the people I find interesting, is the Swedish director Lukas Modysson, for example.

Explain for us the opening and final scenes.
RC:I've had to wait for hours in the Arrivals area of an airport> I've observed people and I've been very moved. That's all.

Hugh Grant, are you aware that because you're always playing the role of a man to be married, you're known as The Lord of the Ring?
HG: Yes, perhaps I've played a few too many romantic films. Nevertheless, I need to find the humour in a scenario, if not, I'm not a very interesting actor.

Have George Bush and Tony Blair seen the film?
HGf course and on that occasion the Queen organized a little party:TV and pizza for everyone.
RC:Tony Blair saw Notting Hill. He said to me that he liked the film but he was a little disappointed that the characters didn't have real jobs. I obeyed him!

What is you definition of English romanticism?
AR: Don't keep your socks on while making love.
Bill Nighy: I'm far from being an expert on the matter (it's been such a long time...!). They always say the English have something "special", I imagine that refers to a certain embarassment in speaking about love and sexuality: they don't talk about it and one even wonders how they manage to have children.


Is love, for you, a source of happiness or of problems?
HG: Problems. I'm no expert either, to tell the truth. I think that when you love someone, it should be unconditionally, a little like the love between Blair and Bush.

Bill Nighy, what made you decide to play in this movie?
BN: First of all, I like the idea of playing an old guy making a comeback (notice my pointy rocker shoes). Next they had me swearing all over the place. Then I had to do a "live" performance so I was surrounded by pretty girls dressed as Mother Christmas (rather scantily clad, it's true). At my age, you can't refuse such an offer.

I know this is only kinda sort on topic but since I bash eBay so many times, I thought I would post a story that, IMO, puts them in a good light.  And also...take note...a "self-policing member" was the one to alert eBay in which took the auction down immeditately.  So never think you're complaints about auctions don't get attention!

You can find out all about the Oliviers at this site:

http://www.officiallondontheatre.co.uk/news/display/cm/contentId/87574

 

Last year they had a reporter/commentator at the awards sending live text feedback to the site from his laptop as the evening progressed. It was quite fun as he updated everyone on who was there and gave backgrounds on some of the nominees. Also listed winners as they were announced. He took emails from the web audience answering questions and excerpting comments from email viewers into his reports. Lots of nice pics on the site the next day, too. Hopefully, they will do it again this year. Here's wishing Mr. Rickman the very best of luck and the heartiest congratulations on the play's nomination!

The Olivier Awards are indeed a big deal.  They are the most prestigious theatre awards in the UK, so yes, they are the equivalent of the Tony's in America.  I did a lot of research on them for my novel (shameless plug) so I've learned quite a bit about them in the past few months.  Their official website is at http://www.officiallondontheatre.co.uk/awards  where you can look at past winners and nominees.  To my knowledge, dear Alan has never won one   Hope this helps!

OT - For those that asked me to ask my other half how to get Snape sound files onto your phone, you should have email now. Anyone else feel free to email me but you need a sound clip on your pc to do it, although I could send you one via email. I also now have the GoF Store cupboard scene clip so anyone wanting that just let me know. You will need your USB cable to connect your phone to your pc unless you have bluetooth

Any other matters concering this can you email me and not this board please

Thanx

If you guys dont mind i am going totally off topic here. I was reading the paper and there is a school opening up in Northern Canada that is called Northern Star College of Mystical Studies-in other words they cant call it Hogwarts but get this, here are the courses.

 

Herbology- plant medicine, flower essance

Astrology-

Divination-dream therapy, tarot practice, and feng shui

Potions-aromatherapy and potions

 

and other magical subjects. These kind of classes are of interest o people who want to rediscover that magic for themselves or others.

 

Ok, who wants to enroll? Can you believe it, a school based on Harry Potter.

I know that we've discussed the past Alan Rickman impersonations on Dead Ringers before. So those of you that don't care for the show might want to skip over this. 

 

Someone sweet friend sent me this clip of the Snape impression from Dead Ringers Christmas Special which aired 23/12/2005. (notice since it aired on Brit tv that I used the Brit date format????? *grin*)

 

The reason I can't thank the person that sent it by name is because the YouSendIt message didn't contain the name.  Whoever sent it, please let us know who you are so we can thank you properly!

Most people think I "have a screw loose" when they hear my text message ring tone on my mobile phone. Its Snape saying "Turn to page 394" (and it carries on for a bit too LOL). However, for my incoming call ringtone I want the store cupboard scene out of Goblet of Fire. Can anyone do a sample of this yet or do you have to wait for the dvd to come out? OK I know I'm probably crazy lol but thats me

It's great to finally see something substantial from this film. I figure that even if it's not released in theaters in the US, if it comes out on DVD for Canada, it should be in Region 1 format so

I'll be able to get it!

Just a note, not sure if this site has been mentioned, but there is an extremely extensive website available for the Berlinale Film Festival.  They will be streaming video of all press events, and maintain an archive of all of these videos, photographs, and more.  Looks like a good place to bookmark, and if AR goes, maybe we will see some good coverage.  There is also media access to film stills from the participating movies.  Do we have anyone with a valid reason to request access?

Elaine - that is very interesting about the Winter Guest scene - I'll have to check it out!  That film (the music alone, actually) makes me cry every time!  Good therapy.

 

Laura - What DVD software do you use?  I agree about different content on different Region versions - that doesn't make sense to me.  Just can't see the advantage to them.  It only encourages people to buy region-less DVD players and get around their regions completely.

Laura, unfortunately I have no idea how to make a clip and I haven't got a DVD-player on my computer. I just checked my DVDs - the interview with AR is on the 2nd DVD of HPand the Chamber of Secrets. He talks about other things (the stone/wooden stairs on the left behind him for example) mixed with film caps, however, it is the same place, same picture at the wall behind him and he wears the same clothes. Therefore, I assume, the video clip posted here some days ago is another part of this interview. I have no idea whether this is somewhere "hidden" on my various DVDs, but I'll find out.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help for the time being.

Why oh why doesn't AR do some of these kinds of projects.  I was just questioning this over the weekend with my discovery of yet another sweet beautiful and wonderful Brit film called Women Talking Dirty.  Two weeks ago I caught a sweet little film called Last Orders.  I fell in love with both films....as I usually do with British films. Then there's the likes of Peter's Friends and the list goes on and on.  But I just don't understand why AR doesn't choose to do some of these. 

 

I can't help but wonder if it might have something to do with what he perceives as the unfair business practices of the British film industry.  He talked about it a little bit with Tim Sabastian in the Hard Talk interview.   

 

Laura, I am total agreement with you about the differences in regions.  Its one of my pet peeves!  I do understand their need to do region encoding but there is absolutely no excuse for giving one region more extras than another.  Its a simple case of them abusing their power.  Thankfully though, the onslaught of multi-regional players, hacks, and international buying power finally give the little guy/gal a chance to fight back a little.

There is a Poliakov season on BBC4 as "back-up" for his 2 new plays. I missed most of the documentary on him so don't know if there was any snippets....

Anyway, an alert to Claudia, Bill Nighy is in the next SP drama showing in Feb. Don't worry, I'll set the Sky+ for you! (Why doesn't AR do these things??)

I found how to get rid of these boring upsetting games. My software to make a backup copy of the dvd allows to copy the whole dvd or to "re-author" ( it says so,I  don't know the meaning thou) and ONLY burn what I want from the dvd.

So it shows all the inside-the-dvd and I was able to get only the deleted scene of potion class, for example...without that InterActual software devasting my computer again!

I'm sure I watched all the extras available in my dvd and this interview was not there

I'm trying to understand what version I have to buy to be able to get this interview. Not to tell that I'm mad about these different extras from one region to another. We all pay money to buy DVDs and it's not fair that someone get more extras than others.

sorry for the rants, I hope it's not OT since it is about an AR movie/interview

Well, I suppose Hello at least gave Alan a mention... 'ever periennial'... Who writes /edits this mag? WHAT A LAUGH... they also need a STATISTICIAN... they can't add up either...their vote totals 102 %.

Close-run, indeed, ah well, it must have been GB'S Turn, he finished only third last year...they could n't possibly have the 'ever periennial' Mr. Rickman first! What is he../ A Plant !

Came upon a snippet of information on BBC4

CLOSE MY EYES is due for broadcast on Sunday, 26th February, at 10.45 pm -12.25am GMT TBC To Be Confirmed.

Thank you for the factoid, Elaine!!!!!    As well as checking out that scene for us too!   Tell Number 1 son thanks for sharing too! 

 

I wonder if he appears anywhere else in the film that hasn't been noticed yet.   Oh well...I guess I will take on the "chore" of watching it yet again! 

 

Apparently MiL does A LOT of frying, sue    Thanks for the Hello blurb.  If you ask me, it seems like they're trying to cover their bums! 

 

GB's image caption says "It was Gerard Butler's first time at the top of the poll for Most Attractive Man. The swoony Glaswegian actor came third last year".  Yeah right....that little fellow should have been in third place this year too!

Laura - From what I've read on the Internet, those endless games are the way you gain access to the extras - EVERY TIME you want to view them.  It seems to be a major complaint of adult (or anyone not very young, I would think) fans of Harry Potter.

 

I would also like to know which version that interview is on.  It could be on all but hidden behind all of the games?  I can't play anything but Region 1, anyway, though.

Quote:
Our race for Most Attractive Man was a far more close-run affair, with Phantom Of The Opera hunk Gerard Butler battling it out with perennial favourite Alan Rickman. The rising Glaswegian talent racked up 28 per cent of the vote, narrowly forcing Harry Potter actor Alan into second place with his 27 per cent share.

De-lurking to pass on some info I thought might interest you. One of my son's friends at college has just told him he was an extra in "The Winter Guest". He was the lad in the tea room who gazes wistfully at the tray of cakes and the 2 ladies. (Got paid £50 for 4 seconds of screen time!) But, he also said that AR sat in as an extra in the same scene. Unfortunately, he must have cut it, because I've been through it frame by frame, and he is nowhere to be seen. Shame, but nice to know that he did have another little cameo in it apart from the man who tips his hat!

Back to lurkdom.

Hello (in the truest meaning)

 

Give me a mathematical problem to solve and I’m in top form.  I couldn’t resist and started to play with the number of votes from the Hello poll.

 

I took the percentage for each celeb they state on their page (btw: If you ad them up you get 102% ) and the number of votes on the screen-shot I took just before they closed the poll.

Based on the fact that Hello did only remove votes (and didn’t add) I calculated the most likely amount of votes they removed.

 

It turned out that person with the least number of primed votes is Hugh Jackman.

 

And with about 95.000 primed votes Orlando Bloom is the undefeated leader here. 

The runner-ups are Sean Bean with about 63.000 votes and Alan Rickman with ca. removed 36.000 votes.

 

Even from Gerard Butler they must have primed about 18.500 votes.

 

 

And to every one who add a nother year to their age:

BERLIN

The Berlin International Film Festival lays claim to the largest audience of any film festival in the world, selling up to 180,000 tickets for about 800 movie screenings. The festival, known as the Berlinale, (entrance, below) runs this year from Feb. 9 to 19, and will include the main competition, a series of experimental films, and a ''kinderfilmfest'' for children. Most of the films are European or world premieres. The world premieres this year includes an adaptation by Oskar Roehler, the German director, of Michel Houellebecq's novel ''The Elementary Particles'' and the British-Canadian film ''Snow Cake,'' starring Alan Rickman and Sigourney Weaver. Tickets go on sale three days before each screening (or four days, for repeat showings of films entered in the main competition) at http://www.berlinale.de.

That's the one!  Also, thanks to Hikity for the info that it's on the DVD.  Having it on the computer is great - easier to watch when I'm on it and get the urge to see Alan again (I just love to watch and listen to him talk) - but it'll be nice to have one I can watch on the 20" TV, too!  I look forward to getting it.

 

If we ever have doubts about whether he will continue to do the films, we can always look at this again for some reassurance - at least about his feelings toward doing them!

 

I love it!

I just tried that link I posted and it didn't work.  You need to actually do a search on Yahoo! (or whatever) and look in Videos.  On Yahoo it was 3rd from the left in the bottom row. The link bewlow the picture says:

 

wb_harrypotter_alan...man_hi.asf

 

When you click on that, the Play button next to the picture at the top works and the original website appears below it.  I even tried looking on the WB site but only found Goblet of Fire stuff.  I'll have to look some more, just in case.

 

Oddly, the webpage is for The Chamber of Secrets, but the video has a lead-in animation identifying it as The Philosopher's Stone (so the British, not US version).  Also, I cannot find a link to the video anywhere on the original webpage it's supposed to have come from in the frame below the Yahoo! frame at the top.

 

It's not a deleted scene but just Alan talking about the fun of making the movie.  It's really cute and shows how much he enjoys doing the films and why.

 

You see no interviewer - just Alan.  Could it be from the Region 2 DVD, maybe, considering the 'Philosopher's Stone'?  If someone could download it (sorry, I can't remember who said they could) that would be wonderful, because it's a great clip of Alan, especially if you're a Harry Potter fan as well as an Alan fan.

  Hello ET and welcome to our group.  I hope you will stay with us. 

 

I DO think that it IS the general consensus of this group that the Whatsonstage vote is very legitimate and something that AR could be proud to win.  Although cheating could be very well done in this case (as with any other Internet poll), it is not being encouraged here. 

 

I hope that will put your mind at ease.

Nice pics, Lex!  Hmmm, StLM...which reminds me that I need to work with that featurette from the DVD for Laura.  I worked on it last weekend after I first promised it but was having problems with the capture device.  I'll see about working on it some more today. 

 

Dee, that's a great pic!  I really like the way you captured his poses.  And that hand.....Wowzers!

 

I agree with you Bluebeatbabe on the Hello vote.  There is no rhyme or reason with how they came up with the winner.  Its possible that they knew they couldn't get away with naming OB yet again after all the complaints they reportedly received.  And since AR and Sean Bean aren't spring roosters, they went with GB. 

 

We know that AR is the true winner of that poll!!! 

 

I've surfed all my regular places and I haven't found any AR news or photos.  Maybe someone else will have better luck than I. 

 

Off to get some  started and then I'll come back and wrestle with my capture card.

Hi Everyone,

How on earth Hello reached the voting poll scores the way they have is mind-boggling- Sean Bean and Gerard Butler were neck and neck so how come GB gets 28% of the vote and Sean Bean 10%, in fact Sean Bean was slightly ahead and Alan was way ahead... do you  think Hello wanted a young handsome male... admittedly GB is very nice... but nowhere as  gorgeous as Alan. Perhaps Alan did n't quite fit their criteria whatever that is ?  I am now convinced this vote was a total set-up by Hello ..

Anyway, I'm sure the Theatregoers Awards is straight..I have voted once and THEY KNOW if you have voted before or not as a statement appears stating 'you have already voted' so I am pleased that this will be a fair vote and it will mean so much more to ALAN

BEING ACKNOWLEDGED BY HIS AUDIENCE .

It's a BIG one!  Anyway, if you click on 'Play' next to the picture at the top, you can watch it.  I wondered if anyone could tell me if this is, by any chance, an extra on the Chamber of Secrets or the Sorcerer's Stone DVDs?  I only have those two on VHS so far.  It's a really nice clip of AR talking about Snape and about the joy of doing the movies.

I love your Snape birthday drawing!  If laughter is good medicine (and it is), then your website has provided many doses of healing draught!

 

 

I agree with everyone that voting more than once makes the results pointless.  The Hello vote was just for fun and just for fans so it wasn't important, of course.

 

Unfortunately, according to the rules, the Whats on Stage award is only for citizens of Great Britain so I can't vote at all.

"I think I'm just realising what a huge luxury it is to be able to do whatever we want on television," says Oliver. "And have everyone know the show for that. John Peel, minicab drivers, some bloke selling samosas on Brick Lane ... The other week we went to a party and Alan Rickman was there. He was, like, [Rickman-esque boom] 'Oh, it's you two! I LOVE you two!' I mean, come on," she grins. "That's wicked."

Re: Whatsonstage. I think I agree with Sue that voting more than once for this award kind of devalues the award.  I would like to think that Alan would rather win the award through a variety of people voting versus his fans stacking the deck for him (not that he would know).  I, personally, think that it would be something that we as fans could be even more proud of as well knowing that he won fair and square without our repetative votes.  That's my 2 cents.

Happy Birthday Red Tango!
You are the Star today!

Just a little bit of AR (very little):

Popworld: the irreverent music show
The other week we went to a party and Alan Rickman was there. He was, like, [Rickman-esque boom] 'Oh, it's you two! I LOVE you two!' I mean, come on," she grins. "That's wicked."

Could it be the same Sting's party?

everyone!

Don't forget My Name is Rachel Corrie is also up for another award on the South Bank Show Awaeds on January 27th.

 

Personally I wouldn't vote more than once for the WhatsonStage award even if I could, it kind of devalues it to me.

Thank you Claudia for explanation, I know it's serious, that's why I didn't try to cheat (word?) on voting.

maybe we can ask friends to vote if there's need? Can someone please re-post the link?

One other note on the Whatsonstage vote.  We have to keep in mind that this is a much more serious "election" than the Hello vote and probably isn't rigged like Hello's was. 

 

If MNiRC and company wins...this will be truly significant to the winners and I feel will really mean something to AR.  Much more than the Hello vote.

Laura, I don't know exactly when the voting for the Whatsonstage awards will end but it does say they will announce the winners simultaneously with the live Critics Circle Theatre Awards at midday January 31. 

 

I just checked the voting and it looks like AR, the play, and Megan Dodd are far out ahead in their categories.  So maybe for now we just need to keep an eye on it more than trying to figure out how to get past the voting rules.  JMHO

 

Happy Saturday, everyone!!!

OK, now that the Hello Magazine farce,fake,bogus--bulls--t contest is over, lets turn our attentions to the Whatsonstage voting for Best Actor, Best Play and Best Solo Performance. Im sure Alan would rather be awarded with that award than one from a silly stupid, phony-contest winner. FYI, i deleted my cookies from my computer and it allowed me to vote again, i have done this a couple time already. Since Megan, Alan and Racheal Cory are well in the lead i have not done this to many times. This is a truly ligitimate award and lets help Alan get recognized for somthing he really deserves.

 

( Not that he didnt deserve Most Attractive Man but that was rigged up the ars so far it was impossible for the man to win anyways)

Hello Miriam, thanks for your answer!

Do not mind about writing too much, I am a bookworm (hope this is the correct term and I'm not insulting myself). I simply love to read.

How kind of you to share those special moments with all of us! AR's encounters are always good/lovely ones, at the best of my knowledge. I don't recall even a single one, of those I've read about, in which the persons complain about him. On the contrary, everybody agree on his gentlemanly conduct, his kindness and... *cough* wonderful smile!

So those ear and right-shoulder are yours?
Nice to meet a part of you, Miriam!
This means that I really can see the whole video, yupiiii!

Jan, hi!

In relation with AR looking uncomfortable, yes he did seem like that at times. However, when he is signing autographs and talking with the ones whom approach him you can see his...*cough again* Wonderful Smile!!

I remember to have read somewhere that AR forget or dismiss his insecurities when acting. (This is a quote from the AABA director, if I'm not mistaken. Newell's?)
If this is the case, it would explain his nerves in public events where he is not acting but being just Alan, the-man-who-protect-his-privacy-very-much-but-is-good-enough-to-share-his-free-time-for-a-good-cause.

(Sorry, I'm also a HP fan)

At Chelsea event, he was not in the disposition of photos, videos, etc. He let the audience know that and I think his petition was respected.

Yes Jan, papparazzi could be really awful, take Lady Diana's fate for example, but I think that behaviour to be a product of misconcepts/wrongdoings of society as a whole. There is an industry behind the papparazzis paying them extraordinary sums of money for that kind of piccies. The great interests (economical, political) are the ones at charge almost in every aspect of modern life.

Oh my... THIS is truly long... sorry.

Have a nice weekend you all!

Hi Nahima,

 

You asked about the final part of the NAS video? I have been looking at it a couple of times (to show my family members) and I realized it was that moment that Alan gave me his autograph. He didn't have a pen and neither did I ( something to remember for the next time) so he borrowed one from a gentleman you can see in the very last seconds. He looked down to sign my book (I let him sign my harpbook with Irish music, because Alan is half Irish, isn't he?) And he looked at it and signed it. It was so lovely to see how his reaction really was. Needless to say I was very enthousiastic to see this and realize what really happened. This was a moment never to forget. He really is a gentleman and very friendly.

 

Sorry that I write so much right now, but I can't help myself. It is very special to share all this moments with fellow - fans. We all like (love) the same person. That is wonderful. Thanks Claudia, for giving us the chance to share our feelings. I love this guest book.

Sarah -

 

I thought that Alan looked uncomfortable, too, and wondered if he is very conscious of getting a lot of personal attention (although I'm certain he appreciates his fan's admiration or he wouldn't be so kind about signing autographs, etc.) when he would prefer the cause to be the center of attention.

 

At the beginning of his recitation of Senator Byrd's speech he said something about it being a speech by someone who people may not be as likely to listen to - so that shows how aware he is that even something as important as Byrd's speech may not be heard unless someone like him brings attention to it.

 

In the same vein:  Oprah said something interesting yesterday on her show about how she feels when papperazzi taking pictures when she's doing personal things - shopping, dining out, etc.  She said it feels like when you have been robbed and you know someone's been going through your things - exactly like that, she said.  It would be terrible to know we'd contributed in any way to Alan feeling that way, wouldn't it?  I know that the pictures of AR taken without his knowledge make me feel a bit like I'm peering in someone's windows.  But curiosity is a natural thing, too.

Something to think about, anyway.

Oh and you should read the rest of the article, if you haven't...

 

Quote:
But on the last night Richard Harris, Kenneth Branagh and Alan Rickman did have a bit of a session. I think Rickman and Branagh regarded it as sitting beneath the feet of a master. He [Richard Harris] was very much into story telling and they were soaking up every bit of information."

Darryl was fascinated with the relationship between Kenneth Branagh, Alan Rickman and veteran screen legend Richard Harris, adding:

"That was interesting because they were almost in awe of him. He was obviously a great, great star and that was fascinating to see that they were like little boys [in his presence]."

Quote:
 

So, for the most part, they were pretty down to earth and friendly? He says:

Jo with Professor Snape (Alan Rickman)
Jo with Alan Rickman as Professor Snape

"Absolutely. So much so that Alan Rickman, within ten minutes, had invited us onto the set. We got my god son, Jo's daughter, my nephew and his best mate out of school and they were completely blown away. Alan Rickman met them on the set [in character], lifted his arms into his cloak and said 'children, why aren't you in school' and that just about blew their socks off!"

So, the elves cheated after all. Alan is second place (does that mean we cheated, too, if Butler overtook us?)

Eeer... Hmmmm...

(Thanks God, the Fifth Ammendment of USA Constitution protects me.)

The NAS video is


Jan, I made it!!

Well, that's what I believe... Could anyone describe me, please, the last view of AR on the NAS video? I want to confirm if I saw it complete.
(My version ends like this: After AR is seen signing autographs, he is writing or looking at something with his face looking down. I said "my version" because I had to use a converter program in order to open the file.)


(I know, it's an smiley overdose. Can't help it, this morning cannot use them at all.)

O....M....G!  I can't believe that OB isn't the winner of the Hello vote!  Well, Butler over took Sean Bean too so who knows how they disqualified votes....if they did.  I still say this thing was rigged out the bum!  I lean toward Emily's explanation that the paper wants the person that will sell the most papers in the coming year to win. 

 

AFNH, My thoughts exactly about Greg Wise being home while ET flirted with the firemen.  GW ain't no slouch for sure!     Even though she was talking about flirting.....there was just something in her eyes that said "I'm Greg's".  LOL

 

Shoot...I couldn't even pass for 16 when I was 16!

 

Jan, I do know what you mean about wanting to get something down while its fresh.  I've been there done that!  LOL  I don't understand why a few is having problems with YouSendIt.  I hope everyone is able to download the videos.  If anyone still has problems after following Jan's wonderful instructions, please email me and we'll figure out something.

I had the same problem.  First I downloaded the yousendit download manager they offer below the Download Button, but it works with my Lightning Download software, too, I think.  After that, this was what worked:

1. When you first get to yousendit.com, right click on the download button and choose 'Copy Shortcut' or 'Copy' - whatever your browser shows.

2. Then click on the download button.  When it quits half-way through, click on the download button again and you will get a new screen with a message about it being an 'Invalid Link' and it will say 'Link:' with a box next to it.

3. Click in that box and Paste the original link which you copied earlier.  Then click on the 'Send' button below the box.

4. Now, below the box will be a new address which you can Copy and Paste into your download manager.  This will finish downloading the file from the place where it left off the first time.

 

Good Luck!  It's a fantastic movie of great video quality!

Hello and a huge welcome to andi, Rachel, and Monica!  I hope you will feel at home with us for a long time to come!

 

OT, I know but I can't help but share. 

 

I caught Emma Thompson on Jay Leno last night.  Thanks for the reminder, kathy!

 

She was charming and hilarious!  AND she is sooo thin!  She was horrified to see that the audience was full of Miss America contestants because she was there to hock a film in which her costume and makeup make her the ugliest woman (Nanny McPhee) alive! But she more than made up for it because she looked fantastic last night! 

 

One little anecdote from the NM set.  Jay asked her if she ever wore the makeup on the street while they were filming. She said no and here is the reason why.  There was a small fire on the set one day and they had to call the fire truck.  She went on to say that no matter where on earth you are....that all firemen are sexy and gorgeous!  So while the fire brigade was on the set putting out the fire, she proceeded to flirt BIGTIME with the firemen.....and then she realized she was in her costume and makeup.  This had me literally crying with laughter.  She has a wonderful way of telling stories!   

 

 

 

Jay asked her about how her holidays were (faint reminders of The View interview) and she explained, hilariously, how she spent her holidays in Scotland peeling potatoes and picking lice from her daughter's head. 

 

Jay said that he heard that she and Hugh Laurie were great friends. She went on to say that he was her first boyfriend in first term.  Jay didn't understand that term was English for semester. Emma said that the word semester sounded like a pregnancy word.  LOL  Anyway, she said that HL was a rower in "uni" and that he successfully learned to sleep and walk at the same time...of course using ET's shoulder!  ET said she promptly went back to her girlfriends and advised them not to date a rower!  LOL

 

Then Jeff Daniels was introduced to talk about his new film.  He did something that made me really admire him.  He looked over at ET and then looked at the audience and said

[paraphrasing] "This woman is wonderful in everything she has ever done"  At which time, ET lowered her head in embarrassment and blushed a little.  Imagine that....Emma Thompson blushing!  But what JD said is 100%+ true!

 

Also, Colin Firth will be on Leno next Wednesday night. That ought to be fun to see too!

'Drought' normally refers to a shortage of water.  Typically with a drought, hardship may occur as people need water to survive.  Thus, lack of Alan information (as we NEED it to survive), is like a drought.  Hope that helps!

Good idea Chalebh, thanks for the screen-shot. I was so immersed into voting that took me by surprise when the page went blank. My last results were OB-110,517, AR-97,513. (Blasted dial-up connection...)

Well, it is done...phew!

Come on, it's time for a group-hug. (the smiley goes here) (my computer is exhausted, I can't see neither font types nor smilies)

Jan, I won't dare to say that I understood all your instructions but got something from there and actually I'm trying to download it again using one of your tips.
Wish me luck!!
It's the first time I have so much trouble with a download from Yousendit.
Last night it stopped at 67% and I almost cried. (frustrated smiley here followed by another hopeful one)

How lovely memories Miriam Heijdemann and Roxysue!
Thanks for sharing them!
Somewhat like this would be my dreams come true, to met AR in person during an event or on stage (I mean, he on stage, me on the front chairs).

Marlina, Vicky, please... have mercy on me!
I need to see this video!!!!!!!!

Laura, I am NOT the expert here, but think that "drought" refers when there is not AR news, recent ones.

Welcome to newcomers! Have a nice day everyone!!

Thanks for the screen cap, Chalebh.  I just checked the Hello site and all that appears are the site headers.  So they are obviously "checking" the vote and will come back with the winner soon. 

 

You're right, Chalebh!  I'd like to see where old Bloomer is when he's 60 too!  He definitely doesn't have the staying power that our man possesses! 

 

Thanks to everyone that has shared their NAS experience with us!  This is the kind of activity we need in our terrible AR drought situation.

Bluebeatbabe - Has AR really performed at the Everyman in Liverpool? That's probably my favourite theatre in the country! Any more info on the performances there and at the Playhouse would be great if you have it. My aunt saw him in Hamlet when it played St George's Hall, a fact which never fails to make me and my mother green with envy. Grrrr.

Roxysue--thanks for sharing your memories of Guys and Dolls.  It always amused me that AR is credited with playing "Liverlips Louie" in that production.   So tell me, do you remember if he did any singing or dancing? 

 

...oh geesh, in 1975 I think I was still fixated on Elton John and (this is truly weird) Harpo Marx.

Yes , Alanfan and Vicki you were absolutely right !! I was so excited that I didn't read through my post !! YES it should have read 1975 ( so now you have sussed my age !! ).I have to admit that in 1975 my attentions were focussed on Bryan Ferry ! Also there was a local hunky actor appearing in Guys and Dolls, called Maynard Williams and he was v. popular. AR was a relative unknown in those days !

Hello,

 

Roxysue, thanks for sharing your "close encounter" with Alan. Your event made me remind of something after the concert. I was the last in the row to ask Alan for an autograph and he was very friendly, but he said that he didn't have a pen and he got one from a gentleman nearby. He wrote his autograph, handed my book back and said very friendly: "There you are", smiled to me, gave the pen back and walked away.... and I stood there, seeing him walking away and trembled on my legs (I felt stupid). Later, downstairs at the reception I saw him again, having a nice chat with wonderful Italian fans (a wonderful group of people). I gave him something (I forgot to give that before) and he smiled so friendly (and surprised, too) and thanked me twice. Can you imagine, that, later in my hotel, I hardly slept? Then it was like a dream, and now that I see that lovely video, I relive this all again, but now I see more of it as I am more quiet now... Does this make sense? I hope so. But I am very thankful for this lovely video.

 

Vicky, I received your e-mail. Thanks so much. I will answer it, soon.

The N.A.S. clip is such good quality!  Thank you Ida and Claudia for sharing that with us!  It has such a good view of his face that it almost feels like I'm actually there!  I like the part where he turns and applauds the musical group and then turns back and for a brief moment, stares directly into the camera!!!  Ida, if you were filming that you must have melted into a puddle right on your chair!

Finally - success! I kept trying to download with the same result at about halfway.  If I clicked on the download button again I'd get a new screen saying something about an invalid link.

 

I downloaded yousendit's download manager because I couldn't get it to resume with my Lightning Download program.  Same result with yousentit's manager.

 

I had right-clicked the download button and chose 'Copy Shortcut' to load the link into both download managers.  So I finally tried doing that and then pasting that into the box on the 'Invalid Link' page mentioned above, then clicked on 'Send'.

 

It gave me a new link to use below the box which I copied and pasted back into the yousendit download manager and Lo and behold! it started back up from the place it had quit before!!!

 

Took long enough to figure that one out!  If these steps I followed aren't clear enough and anyone who's had trouble wants to try it, let me know and I'll try to give step-by-step instructions.

 

I just REALLY WANTED this one because it seemed it must be much bigger since the file size was bigger.  Haven't looked at it yet, though.

 

Cheers, all!!!

I also had problems downloading from the YouSendIt site.  I kept getting some kind of script error message and in the end it just quit working.  I've had problems with YouSendIt before when I had dial-up service but I just got DSL and it doesn't seem to have helped.

Downloading from other sites doesn't seem to be a problem.???

 

I did get it from the other link provided at the alanrickman.ck (I'm not sure of that name) site.  Don't know why YouSendIt so often won't work for me now though it did the first few times I used it.

 

The clip is great, though!  It's nice to know that some people posting here were actually there.

 

I wondered if Alan is/was uncomfortable with himself being the focus of attention sometimes when he would like the event to be the focus?

OH WOW !!! WOW !!! WOW !!! Thank you so much for posting that N.A.S. clip Claudia, and to the clever Italian fan too for sharing . You can understand though why everyone was so fussy about no unlawful recording or photography at the Chelsea event. I nearly freaked out watching that clip because I am on it !! I'm the one in the ( fake ) fur jacket meeting Alan afterwards. Yes, Miriam, he was very sombre at the do, but I got rewarded with the most beautiful smile whem I mentioned that the first time I'd seen him on stage was in 1995 when he appeared in the musical " Guys and Dolls " at Leicester's Haymarket theatre. I was only 16 at the time, and Alan remarked that he was roughly that age too and then laughed !

        YES thank you for letting me relive some wonderful memories.

    On a sadder note, I hope that you do not leave, Elaine. I have never had the pleasure of meeting you although we have been at the same places twice ( N.A.S. and Chelsea ). You have always been so generous in sharing your info. and photos with us . I took 2 photos at the N.A.S. event. I MUST get my hubby to show me how to put them on the computer ( that's if HE knows !! )

Hi Ricki Nicky,

 

NAS stands for the National Autism Society. On December 13th 2004 they had a beautiful concert (Stars Shine for Autism Concert) on behalf of this society. They have it every year (I was invited again, but unfortunately I couldn't afford to go this time). Every year they invite other celebrities. It is very good they do these things. My husband and both my children are having an autistic spectrum disorder (not very heavy, but still.. it is there. So I am very curious about the movie "Snow Cake" and I am very curious of how Sigourney Weaver plays her role). I hope this is a proper answer to your question.

Hello,

 

What a wonderful video of the NAS. Thanks to Ida. Ida, if you read this.... thanks so much. I was sitting next to you and we had such a nice chat. You and your friends were so nice.

I enjoyed the video very much and relived the wonderful evening again. Poor Alan, he appeared to be so tired, but still, you can see he was so very nice (or should I say sweet?) to everyone, even though he didn't smile very much. But it was an unforgettable evening and I loved seeing it again. Thanks again.

Who else was there and I would like to read how you experienced that evening? Thanks again ..... (I can't stop saying thanks  ... LOL)

Great, Daydreamer! Thanks for your answer.

Claudia, I'm devastated... can't see the NAS video.

I downloaded the smaller version first without problem but
when tried to open it the WMP said something

about a missing file or codec that I cannot find on the web.
So, I proceeded to download the larger one, since I have (well, not me
, my computer) Quicktime... but it stopped after a few minutes and, no matter what I did, it didn't pass from there.
Maybe it's my dial-up connection...

Claudia, thank you for uploading the video! the download stopped for me at the half but thank you, I keep trying

About people getting back lurking or leaving, you wrote: "I really feel the two guest book format has been working well and I think things have been getting back to a more calm atmosphere.  Sure we do have blasts of enthusiasm when something new comes out (I'm an instigator a lot of times)....but I really think that we have been that way from the start."

I think that the 2 guestbooks are working fine, it seems more that it turned into something personal, I could be wrong, I hope to be wrong, but it really seems that it's not what is written but *who* is writing the point of disturb.

Just my feeling about the discussions that so often come to the light and make people very hurt.

AR and his work should tie all his fans, not separate or split them, neither put ones against others.

Daydreamer is the wonderful friend responsible for this clip.  It ran on German Punkt television.  Its basically about Dustin Hoffman but there are fleeting shots of AR in it as well.  I think there are two other clips that Daydreamer did for us but I can't find them at the moment.

Laura and anyone else that might have missed the video from the NAS event in late 2004. 

 

I located the wonderful video that our Ida (our Italian friend) was so kind to share with us. 

 

The first link is her video which is a .mpeg. It is the larger (62.9MB) of the two files but unfortunately not everyone was able to play it on their computers. 


 

http://s46.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=3AS5OGFXJ0G0B28SPKG6OABMA1

The second link is the same video that I was able to convert into a .wmv file.  Its much smaller (3.52MB) but the people that wasn't able to see the above video was able to see this one.

Oh dear.  Elaine, you have mail from me when you get a chance. 

 

I really feel the two guest book format has been working well and I think things have been getting back to a more calm atmosphere.  Sure we do have blasts of enthusiasm when something new comes out (I'm an instigator a lot of times)....but I really think that we have been that way from the start. 

 

I've tried very hard to accommodate every one here and in the process even went against my grain and actually hurt some feelings.  I don't want to lose any one here.  Not one person. 

 

Elaine, I don't want you to leave us.  You and I go wayyyy back.  Our friendship goes back long before this guest book was even a working thought.  If there is something I can do, please don't hesitate to let me know.

 

Meeressternchen, thank you so much for translating the Bunte magazine article.  It really sounds like it was a fun party to attend.  I can't help but wonder if AR was one of those that arrived in open carriage.  I have a feeling that maybe he wasn't.     

 

Thanks for the news from Mugglenet, Rebecca and for the caps, CatsPlay. 

 

I'm still working on the Perfume and NAS videos.  Yall don't give up on me.  I have a ton of media to go through.  I should really get more organized!

What is it about Alan fan sites that get people upset? It happened on Suzanne's. Don't say it's going to happen here as well. Don't leave altogether Elaine, be a lurker for a while see how it pans out. We value your input.

 

We are altogether because of one man, we, well most of us, are never likely to meet him, only the chosen few. What is there to fall out about. The old saying if you can't find anything good to say, keep quiet, holds true here. What some people find funny others find hurtful, we should respect peoples feelings. I know on the whole we do and Claudia keeps us in line. Now and again something gets through.

Elaine, I agree with Kathy.  It would be terrible to lose you.  And it feels like other long-term, very knowledgable, highly valued members are once again falling silent, this time maybe under the bling barrage which went pretty far with rude language, at least for my taste.  Or maybe it's the sarcasm that showed up here or the unkind personal remarks that have been in the Discussion Party.

C'mon--this isn't rocket science.  A conversation that respects AR and each other in this part of the GB; the "Lighten up"/"It's just a joke"/OT conversation in the Discussion Party.  Keep the two separate, and maybe Claudia won't give up on us and close the whole thing down.

OK, figured out a way to cap it.  However, large caps are not possible because the native size of the video is small.

 

This sequence lasts for LESS than 1 second.  I was able to get 5 caps, and they suck.   Here you go.  Click for the (slightly) larger ones.

For everyone who's interested, here is my translation of Assi's text from the Bunte magazine's article, as follows:

London

The winter fiest

Party host: Sting

Best outfit: Claudia Schiffer and her husband

Talk: With Vodka British become Russians…

For some, like the millionaire Jemima Khan with her darling film star Hugh Grant along with top-model Claudia Schiffer with husband Matthew Vaughn, Beatles drummer Ringo Starr and wife Barbara Bach, it was a real evening of torture before Elton John’s wedding, which they had to attend the very next day. Starr also came over Christmas wistfulness: “Nowadays I still mourn especially over John Lennon and George Harrison.” Particularly, as he met his widow Olivia Arias.

‘Russian winter night’ was the motto which the singer Sting and his wife Trudie Styler wished and received for their party (In England the dress code is still valid!), and Schiffer’s husband Matthew could have starred in any Russian historical movie in his gold covered uniform along with a colour-matching jeans.

Of course singing took place as well, as many singers were present: Ronan Keating, Ringo, Sting and Annie Lennox, who, in her leopard-coat, reminded that Siberia is also a part of Russia.

Two real-style guarding Kazaks were standing in front of Sting’s villa dressed in body length coats and registered in amazement that some guests arrived in open carriages disregarding the winter temperatures. Inside balalaika-music was played live; a borchsoup was served with endless amounts of vodka. There, the British proved once more that they were able to drink just as much as the Russians. One thing missing was the snow. But who cares? The guests exclaimed “Na zdorovie!” (For your health) and “Merry Christmas!”

 

Anyone finding any remarks - please feel free to commment and correct.

Hmmm, I can't cap it.  The files are not standard video file extensions so I can't open them in my DVD cap software.  And when I play in Windows Media Player, I can't use the slider control for forward or backwards, so I keep trying to freeze it at the right moment, but he looks blurry when I do.  Also tried to convert it from one video format to another, that doesn't work either.

 

I guess they don't want us capping it!  It's pretty teeny, anyway.

Assi, thank you for the description of the party.  If you have time and want to, I would love to read the translation.  But if its a problem, don't worry with it. 

 

Emily mentioned to me last night that Sting is known to have themed parties so this would fit right into AR's look in the pic. From what I see of the shirt, I like it and red certainly isn't a bad color for our fellow. 

 

Christina.....I'm serious about the earring!  LOL  I like a man with one very small stud or hoop in his ear.  Although I lurv Bono, I don't particularly care for a man with a pierce in both ears but for me, the one can be very sexy. 

 

Inbredwaffle, I don't ever recall reading that specific quote before but I read somewhere that the wrap party for S&S was a blast.  Thanks for the quote.  Also, its not for sure the Bunte photo is from Bruno since Bruno has never posted the thumbnail of the image they have so i'll continue to peek in every once in a while.  LOL

 

The bling manips are hilarious! 

 

RickiNicki, I totally forgot about the Perfume clip!  Will you ever forgive me?  I've made myself a note to locate it on my home computer and get it to you today.  I promise. 

 

Laura, I'll do the same on the autism video for you as well.

 

Seriously...sometimes yall have to remind me...I've openly admitted and demonstrated on several occasions how bad my memory is here!

In light of recent events and comments I think we can all rest our case!  If it was a russian themed party, that is definetly a Raz style shirt and possibly a cross or whatever! Although I wouldn`t mind the whole Rasputin package, especially those black pants and boots! Hope they didn`t have TOO much vodka to drink though, you know what happened in Rasputin *cough*. Ok ok, on a serious thought now, Inbredwaffle, thanks for that excerpt, so cute to read about that wrap up party. Too bad there aren`t any pictures from that, they seemed to have lots of fun.

Kathy - thanks for the tip on The Tonight Show, I`m bookmarking it right now!

Some people used to call me something too, I don't want to say it now, too embarrassing. lol

 

Alma, I love your gangsta style! It makes me laugh! This pictures reminds a bit of Ali G. How about Ali R? LOL.

So, now I have the Bunte. AR’s picture is rather small (about 3 x 6 cm), and I cannot detect which type of “bling” he’s wearing *lol*.

BUT: The text describing the party is quite interesting. The motto/theme of Sting’s party was “Russian Winternight” and all the guests had to be suitably dressed. I can also read about Balalaika-music, Borscht-soup and a lot, lot, lot of VODKA! *lol*

Well, I can try to translate the whole text (AR isn’t specifically mentioned, but it is still interesting, how he celebrated) or I could send the text to someone, who would do a better job. *g* And I renew my offer of sending the whole magazine to someone who would like to have it (at my own expense, of course), just contact me via e-mail.

 

@ Dee: fantastic wallpaper, wow!

 

@ RickiNicki: I got used to it, and in some areas of Germany, where Astrid is pronounced “Aschtritt”, it is much worse. Really! *rofl*

 

@ Claudia: This is a wonderful guestbook, and I would just like to thank you for this heavenly place....

Is this the photo from Bruno Press? Because I am wondering if it is really from "Stings X-mas Party" it is marked 21-12-05...well that is the day Elton John got married and Sting was there..being that there were 700 guests...including Hugh Grant and Kate

Winslet...I wonder if Alan was there? It seems like Sting couldn't have a party the same day...or is the 21-12-05 just the date the
picture was put in the system.

I don't believe it to be an upside-down cross, either--to me it seems connected to a ring that keeps it on the chain (excuse my non-technical jewelry terms--I really have no idea what I'm talking about!).

The magazine did not arrive yet, but when it does and the picture is still in it (hope so!), I would like to share ít with you all and I’m not interested in keeping it. Since my scanner doesn’t work properly and I’m a complete and utter computer-idiot, I could send the magazine or just the picture to one of you. Only if you like, of course.

Wow...thank you RickiNicki and Meloe for the lovely picture... hope we can get that bigger.

Just love the shirt...em..red... do you think he wanted to be noticed  ?  I think he really suits that manderin collar look... I wonder if it's silk  ?  I remember him saying he had a 'love/hate' affair with silk !  I think he wore a similar white shirt when he was awarded his Emmy? Similar in cut but not design- that shirt has some applique/decoration on it.

 

Never seen him in bling before either..just wondered if the dog tags were his entrance to Sting's party?  but he definitely is wearing some kind of chain with a cross type emblem on ...we need it bigger !

 

Roxysue, great to hear from you.. I've been meaning to get in touch for a while now... I can only think there are some traders on ebay that really capitalise on Alan Rickman.. I'm thinking of one or two in particular that charge extortionate prices for Pics ...and seemingly someone has a source somewhere.

 

We will GET it NEXT time Roxy !

Christina, I thought maybe he wears a little aeroplane as a kind of mascot due to his flying so much around the world these days, hahaha

BTW I did not grasp Catsplay's wording - what exactly does this mean: thrown a'kilter...by this whole bling situation????

with the lower part hidden behind the "dog tags".

Or...

(
oh, please, easy with me, I am  shortsighted

Could it be a sword?

MellOe and RickiNicki, my eternal gratitude goes to you, you and RedTango`s comments made this awful day a little bit bearable

That IS a turned upside-down cross. Kinda weird, in my view. He does not appear the type to wear it but frankly, I don`t care that much. You heard the man talking about the way he`d let his kids dress! It doesn`t shock me! I love the way he dresses anyway, you gotta admit, weird or not, the man`s got STYLE! Oh and that russian style shirt! WICKED!

Nahima, help is on the way let me know if it works eventually!

Comments:
Mr  Rickman is not big on religion and perhaps it is indeed an upside down cross:

"Today, the symbol of an upturned cross may symbolize an opposition to Christian dogma, a concept borrowed from Christian writers who mistook the emblem of Peter for an anti-Christian symbol- a bit of a self fulfilling prophecy!

The inverted cross is also an esoteric symbol of reversal, and is related to the 12th key of the tarot, the hanged man."

You know that this voting every 15 minutes is totally bogus. I just voted and he was at 82214 and i voted so it went up one, then i immediatly pressed it again and continued till it got to 82220 then i waited a minute because it wouldnt go any further and when i pressed again after a minute i was able to press from 82220 to 82228 waited another minute and it jumped to 82234 and kept pressing until it wouldnt go past 82242. Thats a jump of 28 in less than three minutes. So i am going to vote alote more and in bunches.

CatsPlay - oooooh, great minds do think alike.  I was also kicking around an idea for a Die Hard Palz photo adventure.  I only purchased two figures so mine probably won't be as elaborate.  Still working on my plot....maybe we should do a co-production.

Hi everyone ! A rather belated Happy New Year to you all !! Just want to say that I was interested to read Bluebeatbabe's comments from her reply from Melanie Parker ( will e-mail you by the way ! ). Likewise , I too am disappointed that AR will not be doing any stage work for the conceivable future. I too have received a very friendly letter from Melanie, ( last Friday) . I was trying to find out why AR was so reluctant to have his photo taken, understandably not in the auditorium at Chelsea, but afterwards, when Bluebeatbabe and myself met him. Melanie did not give me a proper answer to this, in fact like a typical politician, managed to deflect the question by merely saying that AR would have appreciated me respecting his wishes !

      On another topic, thanks to Lisa I think it was who told us about the release of STLM DVD in the UK. I bought it yesterday and found it very moving. I haven't listened to the Director's commentary yet, but have watched the feature. AR is , as always, very intense and very serious about his approach to the " hands- on " medical stuff.

     Finally, just want to add that virtually every post I read of Elaine's I happen to agree totally with her sentiments and opinions It would be good to e-mail you sometime.

Claudia,

 

I am still using PowerDVD to cap.  However, I realized there is a setting under CONFIGURATION > PLAYER > ADVANCED where you say 'current window size', as opposed to 'original video source size'.    Since I have a very large monitor, set at 1920x1200 screen resolution, I can cap that large.  I think the one I posted was capped at like 1500 wide. 

 

Hope that helps!

RE: StLM DVD:

 

I got Something the Lord Made for Xmas, watched the Director's comments version this weekend, with the Director, writers, etc. commenting throughout the whole movie...it was REALLY GOOD!  Like having them all in your living room telling you all the little secrets about every scene---felt like being in art/cinema/history class all at once. Definitely watch that version, when you get the DVD.

Good morning,

 

someone asked about the extras on the "Something the Lord made" DVD (RC2). My copy arrived yesterday.

 

The DVD contains the original English Soundtrack and a German dubbing (which makes me think the film could be shown on TV in Germany at one time *hopes*).

It has several subtitles (English and German, and several other weird languages )

There is an audio commentary of the director and the producer (I haven't listened to that yet)

and a featurette with some small statements from Alan as well.

 

LG Chalebh

In regard to the questions on whether or not Alan Rickman will be returning as Snape... I heard an interview that said he most likely will.... I just Can't remember where I heard it, and now it is bugging the crap out of me so i'm searching everywhere... but the interviewer said... well it goes something like this...
"Are you going to be spending the rest of your life on these Harry Potter films?"
AR: "No, JK Rowling is only writing seven and then it will be done"

And that's all I remember... but just in case keep that petition around! But, I'll try to get back to you all about it....

Thank you Bluebeatbabe, for sharing nice MP's letter with us lot

and a thank you to Mrs Slope, you "took the words right out of my mouth"

 

So, guys, I am going to check via a close friend in the ministry of economy in Berlin whether he can find out more about tickets, dates etc concerning the Berlinade and Snowcake in February. I could imagine that, the OooA will attend this spectacle.

 

Tomorrow I'll give my hairdresser a call and hopefully she still has the this year's first issue of BUNTE - we are all in need of some new pics I believe

Happy Birthday to the Professor!  *grin*

 

 

 so much for sharing your letter from Melanie Parker, Bluebeatbabe!  Its disappointing that he won't be on stage any time in the near future but its very encouraging that he's still working on moving MNiRC across the pond.

Jan, sorry for my ambiguity. In a post I said I`d rather be funny than ..whatever I said. And I realised that I should have said hilarious, because that`s what I`ve been called so I thought I should stick to the reality and correct myself.

 

Kathy, I heard Emma Thompson`s planning to act in all the films because she thinks the world of them. I also think they HAVE to include Trelawny in the next one because of the whole profecy issue. Hopefully she`s in the same category as Alan! the "they HAVE to be there, there is no question about that!" category!

Hi Everyone,
Just got into work and on my desk was a letter from Melanie Parker.. I wrote to her before christmas, just saying 'thanks ' for all her diligent work , a little bit about the Andrew Marr Interview and about meeting Alan briefly at Chelsea. I also mentioned voting in the Theatregoers Awards. Melanie says 'Thank You' for the votes in the Awards as 'these are especially meaningful as is the audience members voting rather than panels of judges'.
Melanie also states that 'there are no immediate plans for Alan to appear on stage in 2006 and that currently his filming projects will take up most of the year and also he is in discussions to transfer MNIRC to New York'.
No chance of seeing Alan alongside Ian McKellan in panto then !
I would dearly love to see Alan on stage... I was a regular theatregoer in Liverpool but can't recall seeing Alan although I know he has performed at the Everyman Theatre and the Playhouse in his career.
How could I be so lax as not to remember ?
Anyway, it was a really nice letter and she seems a really nice person too!
Let's look out for Alan in the press over the next few weeks....read the theatre pages !

Just got home from California--3, 10 hour days of driving!.  Thank God for story CD's--Listened to All the Chronicles of Narnia And the Hichhikers Guide to the Galaxy read by Stephen Fry fabulous.

 

Have been scanning the posts I missed.  I agree Ar must have had some dental work done--did notice his puffy cheeks.  I can't quite go to the jaw surgery because often they have to wire jaws together when they do extensive surgery like that.  He may have had gum surgery.

 

Snape petion---hmmmm  I agree with Elaine and Emily, but I can't imagine WB wanting anyone else to do it.  Petition probably meaningless and harmless

 

Does anyone know if Emma Thompson will be back as Trelawny??

 

I hope the AR drought means he is relaxing and enjoying some R&R with Rima.  He has had a very busy year, away from home alot.  I wonder if Rima is ever able to sneak away for a few days and join him on location?

 

I was wondering if the Ar sighting in NY and at the theatre was him checking out some venues for RC??

So there we go, no news is good news right. And what idiot at Warner Brothers would not ask Alan to reprise his role as Severus Snape, and Alan if you are out there. Dont be dufus buddy, sign or you will have  a mob and i mean mooooobbb of wickedly pissed off women coming out to get you,,,,,,,we know where you live.

If any so-called AR fan signs this petition, they don't know the first thing about AR and what he would think of something as idiotic as this. 

In increasing sadness and frustration (because I am grateful for and respect Claudia's generosity, diplomacy, and very hard work), I've read quite a number of presumptuous and judgemental things here the past few months, and even some outright nasty statements about and toward individual fans and groups of fans, but this one really tops them all.

There have been in-jokes here about "the AR Police" in the past (referring, I assume, to some AR group or board with whom people have had some differences), but statements like the above fit in perfectly with a mindset that believes itself somehow responsible for AR's "delicate sensibilities," person, or pocketbook.  Not to mention being thoroughly condescending.  And its follow-up shows a sincere lack of care for anyone who may have been stung by the comments. 

 

I might not personally be up for all the polls, petitions, and other things out there--but I would never presume to judge anyone who is, or to dampen someone's enthusiasm for something which may be one of the only fun-and-happy-silly things in an otherwise bad day.  Pointless, silly, and bizarre?  One could argue that almost all of what we do in AR fandom falls under those headings.  Unless Claudia--who OWNS the place--says not to post something, then scroll on, yes?

I am sure that the petition is harmless, but I never said that it will be ineffective. For that I cannot be sure, I am not a Seer.

Harmless = 1 : free from harm, liability, or loss
                     2 : lacking capacity or intent to injure

Ineffective = 1 : not producing an intended effect
                       2 : not capable of performing efficiently or as expected

End of the issue, at least for me.

All right already.  Emily didn't call anyone idiotic.  Her statement suggests that AR would find the petition idiotic and not his fans. 

 

For me personally, I don't find any petition, Internet or paper, worth the effort so I don't sign them. 

 

But our friends, fans of AR, are from all walks of life and each has their own way of expressing their admiration for the best actor on the face of the earth.  So if signing a petition as the Snape or Gissing one gives you happiness, then by all means do so. 

 

Now can we go back to our regularly scheduled program or AR drought?  Geez, AR.....go somewhere...get a picture made....something

Please, you dear soul, it would be so great of you, if you could please give a little more insight to all of us "idiots" here and tell us of what nature exactly the harm is that the petition does to Alan Rickman. Please - you will of course understand that we desperately want to avoid ANYTHING that could *bother* him!! PLEASE give us an idea of how he suffers. Let us understand!! Help us to find the truth!! Did he hear about the petition, broke down and cried miserably? Oh please, no!! Please say it isn't true. Oh how terrible.. What have we all done?? How could that be done to him. That poor good man. Oh I so hope he won't give up his carreer therefore. Just because some lousy so-called AR fans couldn't hold back and had to express their affection. Disgusting... Only now that I read your sensitive words do I understand how it must *bother* an actor to hear that his audience LIKES him. Eeerkkkss...

Well, I forgot you know more about AR than all the others, so this site probably had nothing to offer you. Sorry.

Personally I found "idiotic" the explanation that he has not signed for all of them because of the salary.

None of them signed for ALL of the films anyway, so there is no reason to panic. But if some people are worried I think that is their own bussiness and we shouldn`t be so hasty in throwing insults in heir faces. I didn`t sign the petition but there are people here who did and I think everybody is entitled to act as they please as long as they don`t offend anyone else. It`s true that hese kind of petitions are not taken seriously but if people feel better when signing it, good for them. I hardly think that petition would end up on AR`s coffee table anyway so I don`t see the harm in it.


Puddingdale

I think it is pretty clear, Emily, that people here know AR wants to continue playing Snape. And we know about negotiation tactics.

So, those who have signed the petition, just in case, do not know AR in your opinion? Well, none of us does, or am I mistaken? I guess those who signed presumed AR to be an extremely friendly person, who appreciates any effort from his fans and would never ever call them idiotic. Well,  , even though not knowing AR, I think they are right -that is what he is.

Whoooooo harsh words, Emily.

 

I think it's obviously and we're all aware that such a petition in the end  has no real influence to the movie studios or AR himself. But on the other hand it won't do any damage as well. It's just a kind of expressing enthusiasm and the wish and pleasant anticipation to see him continue playing snape.

 

So I cannot think of any reason that would cause AR to think his fans are "idiots" just because they like his work, eh!?!? If anything he'd probably rather be pleased about the positive feedback.

 

Just my two cents...


Emily 
1/08/06 at 02:07 PM

Comments:

Elaine, Amen!!  These Internet petitions, and ESPECIALLY this Snape one are complete rubbish!  Movie studios do not give them a moment's consideration.  The only one who will decide whether AR continues as Snape is AR himself.  And who is to say that he hasn't already decided to continue? Not signing up for all movies at once is a negotiating tactic. Most of the HP actors, including the three kids, only go one movie at a time.  It's all about getting the highest salary they can get. 

 

If any so-called AR fan signs this petition, they don't know the first thing about AR and what he would think of something as idiotic as this.

It's like this Hello! poll, no matter what its results could be
AR is our definitely winner. That's not gonna change.
However, I think we keep on voting because it's a way
to show him our support and admiration.
It's a spontaneous gesture full of good wishes toward him.
(Am I wrong?)

Speaking of the so-called poll and the "respectable second place"...

As far as I know, there has not been a breath of a rumour that AR will not take on the Snape character in the next movies. WB will not replace him because that is his part and they know what a "crowd puller" he is. The only reason that AR will not do Snape is if he decides it himself so I find that petition a little strange! If those that started it have some odd idea that it will make any difference, then I think they must be children. It is for AR to decide if he wants to do it or not, and any number of petitions will not change his mind. In fact, I think they would do the opposite. I think it would be best for us to ignore it.

 

Personally, I think AR will continue to take on the role (have we not discussed this before??) simply because he is aware of the way kids see HP and that it would spoil it for someone else to take the role. (I think this is why he does not do HP interviews. The only one he has done on an HP DVD so far was not about Snape at all but about the technical crew, which is typical of him to think of the "unsung heroes")

Good morning everyone, I found the petition in one of the forums I've visited promoting AR in the Hello! poll.
In spite of my disbelief, I signed it anyway, as I said... Just in case...
However, I don't think anybody related to the movies would even
consider another actor for that role.
IMHO, only Alan's decision could prevent his participation and it sounds unlikely either because of the growing character's development.

Keep on voting AR fellows!
It would be a very respectable second place. *feeling proud of it*

Emilia, I hear you. I don`t want to even imagine the possibility of casting another BUT, in such a case I agree with you on Gabriel Byrne. As JKR created Snape in the movies, Alan created him in the films. And I don`t think for one second they could actually considr casting any other actor. IF they (Heaven forbid!) however come to this decision, or if HE comes to that decision, I think GB would make a pretty good figure. He resembles the image I formed reading the books. I think Alan-Snape is what we want to see because he brings that ellegance and a hole new perspective. But let`s face it, Snape isn`t suppose to be attractive! I very much like GB and he too would seem atractive to me, but the impact on the fans would be quiet different. But let`s not dwell on he matter and think only Harry... I mean Happy Thoughts!

Wow!  I love that Antonio poster!  Too bad it isn't larger - is there a larger one available, does anyone know?  It pixelates too much when I enlarge it in Corel Draw.  I'd love to see more detail!

 

It's fascinating itself and the fact that AR designed it makes it even more so.  It's a great self-portrait!

 

Also, the cleaned-up blue pics are great!

 

I didn't sign the petition because from what I've seen (or heard) AR say in interviews - my memory isn't great so I can't remember details - it sounds like he has every intention of completing the series barring unforseen and, probably, uncontrolable problems. 

 

I REALLY can't imagine anyone else - director, casting person, whatever - casting someone else in the role unless it was absolutely necessary.  I'd have serious doubts about their sanity if they did.  After all, Snape has gotten off easy in the movies relative to the books so far and his juiciest parts are obviously being saved for the last 3 movies.  I know I can't wait to see Alan do those scenes!

Guess what's number 171 - yessss it's Sam Rockwell's 'Crewman No. 6' speech; "I'm not even supposed to be here. I'm just 'Crewman No. 6'. I'm expendable. I'm the guy in the episode who dies to prove how serious the situation is. I've gotta get outta here.'

 

And of course at as number 125 - The Sheriff Of Nottingham's famous line; 'Wait a minute. Robin Hood steals money from my pocket, forcing me to hurt the public, and they love him for it? That's it then. Cancel the kitchen scraps for lepers and orphans, no more merciful beheadings, and call off christmas."

Check this, please... (not sure if it is old news)

It never crossed my mind the idea of another actor for that role,
unless under extraordinary circumstances of course.

I am going to sign, just in case...

Catsplay,

I took the new info on the extra segments of the GoF DVD to mean "in addition to" the deleted scenes as described a few days prior....the times for the new segments seem like they are discussions, interviews, extra footage, and/or behind the scenes stuff, not just deleted scenes (?). 

I'm hoping, anyway.

Claudia,

 

I don't think that BBC film board thing was about the HD DVD, I understood it to be the list of extra scenes that will be on the regular DVD, and was concerned as the Snape scene was not on that list.  However, I'm not sure I understand what that 'governing body' does and if I've interpreted correctly.

 

Hikity,

 

Glad to hear the blue photo set was new to you!  I thought they were new, but I wasn't sure.  My lurking friend can work on the watermarks and post them within the next day or so.

 

Also,

 

Is this Closet Land spanish version DVD R1?

 

Thanks!

RE: the Bunte magazine

 

Just in case it isn't found any other way, I searched on "Bunte magazine" on Netscape and found these webpages (all part of the same website):

 

Contact addresses for Bunte:

http://www2.bunte.t-online.de/dyn/c/16/14/82/1614822.html

 

Another page with contact info:

http://bunte.t-online.de/c/15/37/11/1537118.html

 

And the main page (I think):

http://bunte.t-online.de/c/14/46/61/1446618.html

 

I did a search on the site on "Alan Rickman" but only came up with a cast list for Goblet of Fire.  The site is in German, though, so I can understand very little of it.  Maybe if someone wanted to, and the picture can't be found another way, someone could write for a copy of that back issue?

 

RE: the STLM

I'm glad someone else can capture it, because I don't have the hardware or the software to do that.  It is short, but it's fun to watch AR say his little bits and is generally interesting.

Many thanks to everyone trying to locate the Bunte magazine!  Can't wait to see the pic! 

 

LOL Its must be a global policy for hairdressers to close on Monday.

 

tuplow, my thoughts are with you as you are on the road to recovery. 

 

CatsPlay, do any of the extras on the first list match up to the second list?  I've not read any of the books so I haven't a clue.  Its going to be interesting to see what does come out.  I sure don't hope they have already started wide differences for HD customers.  High Definition and all its extra equipment etc has been one thing I've tried to avoid thus far. 

 

Laura, the featurette is pretty short.  I'll capture it and upload it to YouSendIt in a few minutes.

 

Happy Saturday everyone!  I'll be heading to the cinema in a little while with a co-worker to see the new film with Kevin Costner and Jennifer Aniston, Rumor Has It.  I've read that its not that good but co-worker friend and I really like KC.   Please don't pelt me, yall!

Just saw this on The Leaky Cauldron...

 

The British Board of Film Classification today posted their decisions on extras to be included on the Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire DVD. Listed as "Full Frame, HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE DVD additional material" these included segments are :

  • 14m 11s REFLECTIONS ON THE FOURTH FILM
  • 10m 40s HE WHO MUST NOT BE NAMED
  • 13m 1s MEET THE CHAMPIONS
  • 9m 23s IN TOO DEEP - THE SECOND TASK
  • 6m 30s THE MAZE - THE THIRD TASK
  • 8m 39s PREPARING FOR THE YULE BALL
  • 5m 51s HARRY VS. THE HORNTAIL - THE FIRST TASK

What does this mean?  Does this apply to all DVDS?  And are EXTRA scenes considered the same as DELETED scenes (that were mentioned previously)?  The reason I ask is....none of these are the Snape/Karkaroff scene, are they? 

 

I couldn't find the information on the referenced site, though,

 

http://www.bbfc.co.uk/recent/index.php?media=film

 

 

Here is the info that was posted last week on TLC

 

We received word today of a list of some of the possible scenes that will be included on the Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire DVD. A few of these things we had heard from the film makers previously that they might be included, as well as some of the calendar scans we saw previously contained scenes not included in the theatrical release. We can not yet confirm these are the DVD deleted scenes, and will update you once we get confirmation from Warner Brothers. You can read this list of eight scenes below.

Also today we heard that Best Buy has the Goblet DVD as being released in three formats, fullscreen, wide screen, and a deluxe version. This is the first time we have heard of a deluxe version; we don't know if this means it will come in a boxed set with the other three films, or if it is a special edition of the film. We can not yet confirm this, and are working on getting that nailed down as well. We were told as well that the Best Buy release date is marked as March 7th, which we also told you was a possiblity back last month.
All very exciting, but we consider this a rumor until we get word from WB. Thanks to
Harry Latino for the list.!

SCENE 1: Dumbledore ask to his pupils to welcome the Durmstrangs and Beauxbatons students . All the Hogwart students then start to sing Hoggy Hoggy Hogwarts or the school song.

SCENE 2: A Durmstrangs student asks a girl if she wants to go with him to the Yule Ball. She says "yes" and the two friends make gestures in the background.

SCENE 3: Harry tries to speak with Cho Chang, but her friends are around her and the opportunity never works out .

SCENE 4: At the Yule Ball, Flitwick introduces the Weird Sisters band. The star singer addresses the crowd and then the music begins.

SCENE 5: Karkaroff tell to Snape about the mark on his arm. Snape ignores him and removes points to Fawcet and Stebbins, who are briefly shown, and Snape disregards Karkaroff's concerns then.

SCENE 6: Mr. Crouch and Harry are speaking, then Madeye appears as Barty leaves.

SCENE 7: The trio speaks about the death of Mr. Crouch. Ron thinks that the Daily Prophet will cover it up on Fudges orders. Hermione believes that this death, Harrys burning scar, and the fact that the Dark Mark had been cast , are too much of a coincidence, and she thinks Harry should go talk to Dumbledore about all of this.

SCENE 8: The trio discuss their suspicions about what Karkarov has on his arm. Hermione asks Harry what ingredients Snape think he stole from him, and she relises that they are all ingredients in a polyjuice potion.

I just got my Region 1 DVD of STLM and the "Featurette" on it does have a few bits of Alan (as himself) talking about Dr. Blalock and Vivian Thomas and their work.

 

It also includes clips from the film and comments from Mos Def and others about the story.

 

It sounds like it's probably the same thing as on the Region 2 DVD.

Tuplow--welcome back from the hospital!  Hope your recovery is swift and painless.

 

As for the period before, during, and after the filming of COS, Alan was appearing in Private Lives in London every night and only worked on COS on a day off here and there.  I don't think he would have been able to appear on stage every night if he had been undergoing jaw surgery.  The reason he looks so puffy is COS is probably because he was suffering from a cold or the flu, a fact that was verified by many stagedoor encounters at the time.

 

...back to work now...

Hi All,

first of all: Happy New Year to Everyone.

I was just released from the hospital (strarted voting again raight away), so I am not really up to date. Any news concerning the casting of Snape in OotP?
Production is about to start in a month (that's what I heard), but the sooner we know the better.

Another thing: I was checking the messageboard on Alan in imdb.com, and found a short discussion about his speech problem. I had heard it earlier that he's had it since childhood, and it makes it difficult for him to open his mouth, because the joints in his jaw cannot move properly.

Now, what I heard on this is that he underwent a serious surgery concerning this problem before/during the production of COS. I read somewhere that in order to fix this problem the doctors actually have to break the joints and insert some prostheses, so the procedure is quite severe. That is why his face is so swollen in his first scene in the movie. As I heard he couldn't even recover fully before shooting, because Richard Harriss's condition was getting worse, so production cannot wait. (This part appals me a lot., BTW)

Can anyone confirm this story? Or just another rumour floating around?

Hi Mrs. Slope and welcome aboard!  Thank you for your kind words and I hope you will stay with us. 

 

Hmmm, Hello voting!  Looks like something's up with the site.  Maybe they are examining the voting practices....yeah right!  LOL   It'll be interesting to see what the numbers look like when it comes back online.   

 

As for Eco-Challenge.  Way way back when I tried to order the program, I was told by numerous people at Discovery that they stopped producing the show and that once their on-hand supply depleted, there would be no more. But a couple years later, I heard from a shy fan that she had been able to purchase a copy from Discovery but the supply was very limited.  When she told the associate at Discovery that she had friends that might want to buy the video, the associate told her to instruct her friends to use the item number that I have listed on the Audio page. 

 

Chalebh! Thank you for putting everything into the right perspective!  You wrote in reference to the Whatsonstage award voting:

 

Quote:

Looks pretty good.

 

And I dare to say: OB might win the Hello poll, but he will never receive one of these awards!

 

You're absolutely right. The Whatsonstage award really is the more important one between the two!

Busy busy lately.

I would just like to endorse Claudia's and others suggestion of donating to the RADA cause for his birthday. Catherine really does a good job of setting this up for us and we all know for certain that it IS something close to his heart. He involves himself with so many charities but RADA is special to him - and who knows, we might be contributing to an "Alan Rickman" of the future", and if they give others as much pleasure s AR has given us, then it's got to be a very good cause. Besides, you can also leave a personal message on the page which he WILL get to see. I can imagine some of those birthday messages going astray as there will be mountains of them! I'm sure he would be very appreciative of a RADA donation and would have more meaning to him rather than a pressie or a mention on the paper. Just MHO.

Claudia has the full audio of the Eco Challenge (no video) on the audio page.  She lists this Discovery Store phone number, 1-800-627-9399, to call to order.   I called a few weeks before Christmas and they said the item was not available.  I asked if it ever would be again, and the person said 'after the holidays'.  However, I'm not sure how knoewledgeable this person really was.  If you try calling again with success, please let us know.

I agree, CatsPlay and others. Never give up, never surrender. Let's fight this losing battle as if we had a chance, then maybe we will. And if not, what is Hello magazine to us or AR?

We should try the humourous chain e-mail, maybe there are still many people out there who have not heard about the poll. I convinced a colleague who does not even know AR (shame on her) to vote for an hour just to do me a favour. So maybe we can recruit more people - and obviously that is the only way to close the gap. Those Bloomies seem to be continuously voting and they seem to be legions. What is wrong with them? Are they blind?

Yesterday they showed Robin Hood – Prince of Thieves on TV. Our local newspaper made a short comment about the film, which I can’t withhold from you.

 

[…]Die wahre Attraktion des Films aber sind Alan Rickman und der kontrollierte Wahnwitz, mit dem er den Sheriff von Nottingham darstellt. Wenn er vor Wut schäumend befiehlt, strafweise das Weihnachtsfest abzusagen, möchte man davon eine Endlosschleife anfertigen ...

 

For those who can’t understand German, here is a rough translation.

 

But the real attractions in the film are Alan Rickman and the controlled folly/lunacy, with which he plays the Sheriff of Nottingham. When he fretting and fuming cancels Christmas one likes to create an infinite loop with that scene…

 

That made my day...

Sue: On the site I ordered my copy from are no extras listed. But I can tell you when I receive my copy.

 

And now to something completely different: There's still the voting for the What's on Stage Awards.

At the moment the results are thus:

 

Best Solo Performance
Most impressive individual in a one-person show or series of monologues.
Corin Redgrave - Tynan, RSC at the Arts 18.59%
Jefferson Mays - I Am My Own Wife at the Duke of York’s 18.54%
Megan Dodds - My Name Is Rachel Corrie at the Royal Court 38.60%
Stephen Dillane - Macbeth at the Almeida 24.28%

Best New Play
A Few Good Men by Aaron Sorkin - at the Theatre Royal Haymarket 24.37%
Coram Boy adapted by Helen Edmundson from Jamila Gaviin's novel - at the NT Olivier 11.26%
Harvest by Richard Bean - at the Royal Court 6.20%
My Name Is Rachel Corrie developed by Katharine Viner & Alan Rickman - at the Royal Court 43.05%
On the Shore of the Wide World by Simon Stephens - at the NT Cottesloe 5.77%
Some Girl(s) by Neil LaBute - at the Gielgud 9.34%

London Calling - Best Director
Alan Rickman - My Name Is Rachel Corrie at the Royal Court 46.75%
Melly Still - Coram Boy at the NT Oliver 2.81%
Michael Grandage - Guys & Dolls at the Piccadilly & Don Carlos at the Gielgud 20.15%
Phyllida Lloyd - Mary Stuart at the Apollo 7.21%
Richard Eyre & Matthew Bourne - Mary Poppins at the Prince Edward 8.39%
Stephen Daldry - Billy Elliot at the Victoria Palace 14.69%

 

Looks pretty good.

 

And I dare to say: OB might win the Hello poll, but he will never receive one of these awards!

Yes, it's me again!  Susan, I'm w/ you on the never surrender!  I didn't even know there was a vote going on till today.  I went to FanForum to RedAlert the gals there and I posted a news tip on Mugglenet though they have a nasty habit of skipping over any Alan news.  I've been voting for the past few hours.  I never did get that Macro thing to work for me, but I refuse to give up w/out giving Alan my all.  He's just too perdy for me to let some curly headed no talent take the prize.  Besides it would make such a lovely gift for the man since he's turning 60 next month.  Never say die!

CatsPlay, I agree the Bloomies would work harder if we could figure a way to start closing the gap, but we would need the entire population of the eastern United States voting all night to close that huge a gap in one swift midnight move.  And some AR fans seem to be thinking of giving up, although I've always felt that AR's fans were the most dedicated--deservedly--in the world.  (What I keep wondering: Where are the *millions* of Harry Potter fans?  Mad at AR/Snape about Dumbledore?)

Well, I tried to post earlier, but my post didn't show up.  Don't know what happened.

 

Anyhoo, I haven't been around in over 2 months.  I hope you guys haven't forgotten me.  I see that Alan is in 2nd place for most attractive of the year.  That's got to be a joke!  I mean Orlando is okay, but he's no Alan Rickman!  Alan's got it all.  Looks, talent, a voice to make a woman...  Well, I don't have to tell you guys.  Still it's bugging the crap out of me!  We're losing by over 5000!  How can that be?  We're talking about a man so hot he makes a greasy git w/ crooked teeth and a nasty personality look good?  I just refuse to believe he's going to lose.  There must be some what to fix this w/out cheating...  

 

Okay so now that I've had my rant, have I missed any good news?  Anyone know about the release of Snow Cake or whether Alan is going to sign up for Order of the Phoenix?  Any yummy new pics?

CatsPlay, whatever is done had better be done immediately.  That gap isn't holding steady at 5000; it's growing by about 500 votes a day.  (I'm also no longer so convinced that the poll is fixed, but the reasoning is long and boring.)  Anyway, my feeling is Never Give Up!  Never Surrender!  And I'll help with whatever you decide to do.

Ladies,

 

Re: Hello Vote, I think the only way that we can get ahead is with some kind of organized plan.  The key is in the numbers, as I think our base of fans is significantly smaller than Orlando's.

 

So, the only approach can be to somehow recruit more people to vote.

 

Is there any sense in possibly organizing a day or days in which we all agree to 'recruit' 'X' number of friends, family, etc., to vote for some period of time?

 

Is there any sense in creating some kind of 'chain email' that gets passed along?  These things tend to go pretty far once they get started.  I think something written with a humorous tone may get some people to help out.

 

I'd be willing to try and write something up that is written in the tone of 'us older folks need to stick together', as this may be the most effective approach to get people to have a desire to help out.

 

Timing wise, does it make sense to do this now, or to continue to vote and maintain the 5,000ish gap and then initiate the 'plan of attack' at the last hour?

 

Numbers wise, is there a way to make a dent in this thing or is it a waste of time? 

 

I just hate to go down without a fight, and am willing to help organize such an effort.

I think I need to add to the recognition the Friends of RADA newsletter does of the birthday donation is a group recognition and not an individual. 

 

Catherine has done an amazing job of organizing and maintaining this birthday celebration for a long time, which makes her trustworthy to both RADA as well as the group of AR fans that donate. 

 

Once the donation is picked up and distributed by RADA which might take a few months, they contact her with the results of how the money was used plus a gigantic thank you.  Catherine then promptly relays the message back to the fans.

 

Have I now done enough priming up the cause????

 Hey Ness!  Welcome back too!

 

Alba and Ness asked about missing any news. 

 

There were some new pictures released November or December. Check the archives for the originals thumbnails and then the larger ones that Lurking Fairy, Sue, and another anonymous friend made available to us.....plus the wonderful watermarkless ones that our bevy of talented ladies worked on for us. 

 

CatsPlay posted a link to a brief clip of Snow Cake last month.  Here's the link.  Click the words "Dendy Reel" and the clip is in there somewhere.  I can't recall how far you have to go to see it.  Its only about 15 seconds but its about the best 15 seconds I've seen in a while.  We are hoping a full fledged trailer will be coming soon.

 

That's all I can think of at the moment besides the Hello vote (rigged beyond belief).  Can anyone else think of anything I missed?

I totally and completely agree with Ali-Pat and others about the contribution to a charity for his birthday.  I've always felt that although I'm sure he appreciates the gifts he receives...I think he most appreciates the monetary gifts made to his favorite charities.  He puts a lot of work and effort into a lot of organizations. 

 

Yes, the organized effort by Catherine, England will be offered again this year.  Last year, I believe around £2000 was raised but I'll have to check that figure out.  As soon as she has everything organized and posts the link, I'll get right on adding the link here. 

 

For anyone that doesn't know, the RADA Bursary Donation effort has been an annual event to celebrate AR's birthday for number of years now.  It has been successful in helping out numerous RADA students who otherwise might not be able to attend because of financial hardship.  AR puts a lot work into RADA and has been very vocal in the past at what a shame it is for an acting student to have to either not attempt drama studies or leave them just because of financial need.

 

AR fans are recognized in the Friends of RADA newsletter once a year for their efforts. 

 

But for those fans that might not want to donate to RADA, I am sure there is a charity that he's supported at some time that you will find worthy of your donation.  You can find a list of some (sorry its not complete) of the organizations he's participated in HERE 

 

Alba, Ricky, Ana Julia and Jules!!!!  Its been a long time since we heard from you!  Welcome back!

I would agree with Ali-Pat regarding the newspaper ad.  Although it is a wonderful sentiment, it may make him a little uncomfortable for the fact that he has turned 60 years old to be publicized in such a large way to the world.  Granted, we don't think he is vain, but an actor's looks and perceived age is important in their ability to get roles.  So, it may not be helpful in that way.  JMHO.

Sorry to be the rain on the parade, but I think the newspaper idea, despite being well intentioned, will not make a big impact on the birthday boy.  I think he is past being impressed by seeing his name in the paper.  What would really impress him, and please him greatly, would be if the same amount of money that might be spent on a vanity ad were instead given to one of his favorite charities.

I know it is not the most important poll in the world. And we all know who is the best and that Bloom cannot be proud to keep winning in this one only. Still, for AR's sixtieth birthday, we should at least try to give our man as many votes as possible. Annoying that the site does not even count all the votes properly. My mouse finger is broken now. How are yours?

By the way, I think the idea with the newspaper was good. Pity that seems to be too expensive. Or should we start collecting money in public places?

WE Know who should be the worthy winner...come on , nearly 60 and pulling all these votes...the Man has to be doing something RIGHT! ...He is ..just checked the Theatregoers Vote and Alan has 46.94% of the vote for 'Best Director' category, almost double the vote of the nearest contender.

Megan Dodd's 38.66% vote for 'Best Solo Performance', again well in the lead and

 

MNIRC  'Best New Play' has 43.77% and well in the lead.

 

Funnily enough, could n't seem to find ORLANDO BLOOM mentioned anywhere...

 

ALAN HAS REAL STAYING POWER and is one of the nicest guys around... what did that Perfume extra say... 'Alan Rickman is a real cool dude' well. he get's my vote  everytime..

Hi dears!! First of all thanks Claudia for her great work increasing and boosting my interest for AR each day more...especially, thinking I'm not an English mother tongue and it's so difficult to find stuff about him where I live.

Well, I'm voting being proud that we're getting a huge result, though. Now I've a question for you, a friend of mine is attending the School of Arts, having to prepare an essay about "the character of a doctor", so I suggested her to give a look to AR's work with Mesmer...she has been thrilled about the movie...despite of the difficulty to understan it in English. By the way...not to bore you again...does anyone know where we can find the script? Have you got it? A link or a file? Thanks for your concern, hugs.

I emailed the Hello info on 12/31 to HPANA, Mugglenet, Veritaserum, and Leaky Cauldron, but apparently they didn't consider it newsworthy even though they had reported his success in the monthly poll.

But at least he's passed the 50,000 mark. Yay!

Hello everyone

 

At HPANA the Jury has just returned it's verdict in the trial of Severus Snape.  Thought you would all like to know.  You can read all about it  here.http://www.hpana.com/forums/topic_view.cfm?tid=42890&p=44

 

The trial lasted nearly 5 months and was done very professionally.  (The silliness on the previous page was to alleviate our tension upon waiting for the Jury to deliver their verdict. )

 

 

Keep those fingers clicking for Alan in the poll.

Never give up!  Never surrender!

 

And I just love this smilie. ----->

Hello everyone and happy new year! Just back from a couple of weeks in Barcelona where I only had dial-up (ugh!), so no viewing, posting or voting. That will all be remedied now, so count on my votes, but there is NO way I'm reading through two weeks of posts. Is there any must-know news?

I met with three friends there who were extras in Perfume (two I didn't know about) and saw some really neat pix of AR, but they weren't too keen on them being posted or mass mailed. SO SORRY! These people were mostly part of the orgy scene and had some very funny stories to tell. It should be great! If anyone has a change of heart, you'll be the first to know.

My contact at Daily Mail on Sunday rang a couple minutes ago to tell me that such an advertisement would cost a fortune - they'd probably charge thousands there ("... otherwise our paper would be "huge").

Well, if more than two people are really interested in it... why don't we set up a new website, putting all the stuff on it we hope Alan Rickman will be pleased with and send it to Melanie Parker?

The other Group who made a book for him has closed already and they won't accept any more texts, pictures etc.

Or we simply let go of the idea/thought, let it die peacefully and finally bury it in the wine cellar...

Hey girls,I know that now we all must except that our man will be stuck at 2,he is of course and will be always number 1 with us,I feel that it is Hello Magazine who are at fault,and quite honestly they dont care,as long as a young male gets the vote,they are quite pathetic,so,all I can say is ok,let it be,us fans of Mr Rickman are way beyond all this voting scam,so let us move forward to better things like his oncoming films,stage and of course more Snape...Hurrah....And we must mention the fact that he will be getting stage awards,which are much more of an accomplishment dont you think.....

Oh,and Mugglenet fans of Alan/Snape have been putting their vote on too,but like me,are very disheartend by it all,and are doing what I have suggested,think of other things that are more worthwhile...

Sniv - you may already have gotten this, but just in case, here's what I have. It's only 191 x 263 pixels, but not TINY.

 

Red Tango: I LOVED your pictures!  Sounds like it was fun, even if a little embarassing.  A nice pudge is a wonderful thing - my husband has one himself.  They can be handy, too:

 

 

I wanted to just put a small version of this in this post without putting it in Photobucket since, obviously nobody else wants it, but I think it's funny and, considering the pictures of AR with the little dog, I can picture him using his pudge in such a way.  I'll delete it back out of Photobucket before long if you don't.

 

The idea of a page in a newspaper sounds great if it isn't too expensive!

Well, you all know this...:-)

And yes, isn't it marvellous how AR can beat all those young teenie magnets in the vote? All right, except for Orlando Bloom. But hey, I predict Orlando will NEVER be able to win such a vote when 59. So, something to be proud of, and of course, we should still keep on voting, no matter what.

By the way, is anyone using the chatroom? Is there a time when you meet?

Hello all (or is "hello" a dirty word these days?):

 

I wish to correct a statement I made the other day about Marston's guns from QDU being in a gun museum.  True, there was a traveling exhibition of Hollywood guns a few years back and Quigley's guns were part of it, but not Marston's.  Here is an excerpt from the email I got from the National Firearms Museum (yes, the NRA folks):

 

In 2002, the NFM had an exhibition "Real Guns of Reel Heroes" that presented one of the largest showing of movie firearms ever assembled outside Hollywood.  With the close of this exhibition, the items loaned by various Los Angeles area prophouses, actors, screenwriters, and directors were returned.  Among the items represented - a selection of Tom Selleck arms from his movies, including Quigley Down Under, Crossfire Trail, and Last Stand at Saber River
 
We presently have on exhibit one of the Shiloh Sharps .45-110 rifles used by Mr. Selleck in Quigley Down Under.  It was donated to the museum in 2004.   We do not have any items that were used by Alan Rickman.
 
So that's that then.
 
On a funner note, I got my Palz Hans figures from ToyWiz yesterday (thanks again, CatsPlay!).  I think the guys at Palz must have a real sense of humor, or maybe just too much time on their hands.  The props include a tiny little passport, a tiny little notebook for Hans to thumb through, and a tiny briefcase that opens to reveal three tiny little bearer bonds.  And, of course, tiny walkie talkies and guns.  Hans' face looks a little too much like Ringo, however.  One more detail that amused me--McClane's muscle shirt famously changes color during the film, and so does Hans' suit, if the figures are any kind of a guide!  The fresh Hans wears a deep navy suit, but by the time he becomes dusty Hans, the suit color has lightened a bit.  I don't know why, but that just amuses me greatly!
 
Off to do my chores now...

Besides this Hello poll being ( a David Freidman quote) "rigged up the ass" , i think there are probably more OB fans out there than AR fans. I mean Orlando probably has more of teenager following than Alan does and even though he is number one in our hearts, this i think is a losing battle. But i wont  stop voting, and neither should yo guys. ( at least he is kicking JD, VM,GB. WY  butt and all those younger whipper snappers).

 And there is - of course - no, absolutely NO chance the OooA will win - so just stop thinking about "strategies" or writing mails to this b***** magazine... but I continue to vote out of stubborness

Does anyone have an unwatermarked version of that one? I like that look

Oh, and I caught the tail end of Blow Dry on Bravo a few days ago. Hopefully they will play it again and I can see it all! It seems AR's movies have been on TV alot recently- Truly Madly Deeply on one of those romance channels, Dogma on Comedy Central and Love Actually on HBO. Must.. leave... television... set

Oh, dear.  The gap between AR and OB which came down to about 2250 yesterday has been creeping up during the last 24 hours--no big mysterious jumps that I noticed, but it's now 3707.  Looks like we are simply being out-voted today.  Anyone have any ideas about what we might do?  We've got nine days to do it in.  (During the monthly election we often racked up 3000 votes in a day; the problem is that so do the Bloomers.  And more.)

3rd pic down, supposed pic of AR on top of a huge mountain in Yosemite.  Suppose this is him?  Seems like a reputable site.

Claudia,

Oh, I feel my Photoshop finger just aching for some work on some Sting party photos......hope we have some kind friends who can help out....!

 

Christina, re: Closet Land script, someone from the GB pointed me here,

 

http://www.hollywoodbookcity.com

 

I did order it from there and it finally arrived, although I was pretty nervous about it as their checkout form is not secure, and they do not answer emails.  It is on page 40 of the movie scripts 'C' letter listing.

Can someone tell me if there`s any Closet Land script out there? I didn`t find it at that site that CatsPlay posted a while back with the other scripts... And I could really use it, I got the film today and it was torture! LOL I mean it was torture the way I had to switch the volume all the time because now they`re showting, the next second it`s no more than a whisper, so I may have missed some dialogue bits.

Oops, I got riled up about Binder again and forgot to mention something. 

 

Em alerted me to this a few days ago but I've tried to keep an eye on it to see if it would be opened up to the public but it doesn't look like it will.

 

At Bruno Press, if you do a search on Alan Rickman, you will see there is an entry that says "To view paprazzi images you have to login!"  It looks like the image might be of AR at Sting's Christmas party on 12/21/2005. Does anyone know a friend of a friend of a friend that might have a membership?   

 

Thanks for the heads up, Em!

Its still up, Sniv but whether it will count remains to be seen.  I'm still very skeptical of it.  I don't think anything is going to bring the release of AR's Gissing ever. Especially after the Binder fiasco.  Geez...how stupid can they be????  ROTFL!

 

Hikity....good spot!  Little Ferret has been busy, hasn't he/she?  LOL  Surely, no one will bid on those since they are widely found on the Internet.

I'll see what I can dig up for you, CatsPlay.  There were several really good reviews from that event. 

 

Excellent news about the GoF DVD AND Snape deleted scene.  Gosh, new releases are to quick to DVD these days!  And here I've been waiting for a Nash Bridges DVD set for years! 

 

Thanks for the link to the Spanish GoF site that's advertising the Hello vote, Nahima!  We'll show Hello who trul
