But before I go... You are aware that Ben Whishaw is coming to NYC to perform on stage this spring, I assume? Are you going to see the crucible?



Ok, I'm going, Tuesday night. (It's easier to delay watching the end of episode 5, London Spy.)





:D I really don't think you will regret that! Ben does angst so well.

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.



I'll let you know!  8)

The Crucible
Returns to Broadway

It’s turning into the season of the witch. Earning the kind of raves for a horror movie not seen since “It Follows,” the period piece “The Witch” takes audiences back to the days when people thought covens were not just the stuff of spooky stories. The finest satire in Judd Apatow’s new Netflix show, “Love,” takes place on the studio lot of a tween-courting television series about witches with the spectacularly awful title Wichita.” And there’s a new Broadway revival of Arthur Miller’s “The Crucible,” the most famous play about the anxiety of witchcraft this side of “Macbeth.” The last time this was on Broadway, in 2002, Richard Eyre directed a worthy production starring Laura Linney and Liam Neeson. Expect something more adventurous from the director Ivo van Hove, who staged the stripped-down revival of Mr. Miller’s “A View from the Bridge.” He has an equally impressive roster to work with, including Saoirse Ronan, Ben Whishaw and Ciaran Hinds. (Previews begin March 1 at Walter Kerr Theater; http://thecrucibleonbroadway.com )

  • A city boy's mentality, with a cowboy's soul.


Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

cute!


Oh, the artist Jo (J000000.tumblr.com) dedicates a section of her/his blog to 'cute'--I mean CUTE!!! He/She is VERY talented, but boy, oh, boy, the cuteness factor (which is kind of an Asian thing I think) can get stratospheric--like THIS small square at the top (That's Alex on the left and Danny on the right):


LONDONSPYFANARTJO
She/He also does this other type of thing
(still all about the London Spy characters
Alex and Danny) in comic book format--
in fact, Jo is finishing an original fanfic
London Spy story (Danny rescues Alex!)




I finally finished it!!!!
Now I can move on to my comic without distraction now T_T!!!
The story is about Alex is alive and kept prisoner by the CIA, finishing his
program for the US government because the patriot act is now expired.
 
Danny on the other hand, from not knowing Alex is still alive to knowing
that accidentally, to move on to a long journey trying to get Alex back.
Jo
http://j000000.tumblr.com
On the complete other end of
the spectrum, Jo is doing erotic
(shall we say--pornographic?)
images using the same characters
--most DEFINITELY NOT SFW!!!

A  MOST WANTED MAN
Whether conducting his dangerous liaisons on screen or on stage,
London Spy seducer Edward Holcroft is about to blow his cover



FILMING London Spy took Edward Holcroft into uncharted professional territory. The drama, based loosely on the case of Gareth Williams, the MI6 agent found dead in a sports bag, demanded Holcroft’s first ever sex scene - and it was to be with Bond star Ben Whishaw. His approach? “Just jump into it. So I literally jumped on to the bed and was like, ‘Let’s go!”’ recalls Holcroft, who made his name in projects such as Wolf Hall and Kingsman: The Secret Service. “We had become quite close by that point, so it was quite special. Of all the people I could have dreamed of having a gay sex scene with, Ben would be my number one.”

GQ UK, January 2016, p. 45


:o WHEW! (Fans self.)
(By the way, it was
finally discovered that
the complaint was from
exactly one person--one.
