I have so much love, admiration and respect for this dear sweet man! What a light he was in our world! Rest in the peace of Christ, Mister Fred Rogers! <3
people make fun of him all the time and it really irks me. I have a deep love & respect for this man.
Wilder was initially hesitant, but finally accepted the role under one condition:
When I make my first entrance, I’d like to come out of the door carrying a cane and then walk toward the crowd with a limp. After the crowd sees Willy Wonka is a cripple, they all whisper to themselves and then become deathly quiet. As I walk toward them, my cane sinks into one of the cobblestones I’m walking on and stands straight up, by itself… but I keep on walking, until I realize that I no longer have my cane. I start to fall forward, and just before I hit the ground, I do a beautiful forward somersault and bounce back up, to great applause.
When Stuart asked why, Wilder replied, “because from that time on, no one will know if I’m lying or telling the truth.”
this used to be on my blog ALL the time omg
He will always be my favorite actor
The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
ever since I read this book at age six I’ve been in love with the story, the whole idea, a garden. I fell in love with Victorian art, lifestyle and decor. I want a secret garden & a victorian mansion.
I’ve seen every film adaption of this book also :)
does anyone else remember this movie?
cuz I totally watched it today :)
Graduation (Friends Forever) - Vitamin C
this song is kinda relevant to my life now.
So many people I know graduated this year (including myself) and two of out of my three closest friends are officially out of the “high school nest”.
We’re practically adults.
We’re growing up.
It’s totally strange. I never wanted to do this. Yet so much of me is ready to leave ALL of this behind and recreate myself or just who I appear to be. See, I’ve never really changed. The core of who I am is constant, defiant and unwavering. The outside has developed some (thank the Lord) but inside I’m still me, who I’ve always been. Now with an adult shell or cocoon. I’m what society sees as “matured” but I never asked to be. I just want to be, whomever that may be, and I want to leave all of this behind so I can see who me is going to be.
So long high school, it’s been fun (ish), but I am so glad you are over.
“You know that place between sleep and awake, the place where you can still remember dreaming? That’s where I’ll always love you. That’s where I’ll be waiting.” -Peter Pan
it’s all the same to me.
fun fact: None of the actors but Gene Wilder knew that the tunnel scene was coming
like, they had the lines and stuff, but they though it was just a boat ride. And when the lights came on and he started singing their terror was real
fave scene of fave movie.
At my public Library we have epic bragging rights. the entire Children’s section is devoted to “Where the Wild Things Are”. Our artwork was commissioned and done by Maurice Sendak himself and we are the only place in the world where you can see some of this original artwork not found in the book (for instance the back of the wild things)!
