One man and a lot of dogs

I was really pleased to see In Bruges pick up something at the Golden Globes. Colin Farrell was named Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy, sadly beating out his own co-star Brendan Gleeson, who was no less brilliant. If you've not seen this film, check it out NOOOOOWWWWW!

But quote of the night must surely go to Mickey Rourke, who, last I saw, was winning only 10 per cent of E!'s voting public as their pick for a win. He did win, though, getting Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Drama, for his role in Darren Aronofsky's The Wrestler. "It's been a very long road back for me," Mickey announced. "Several years ago I was almost out of this business. I'd like to thank all my dogs. Sometimes when a man's alone, his dogs are all he's got." (Source:

I didn't stay up to watch either but am so glad the Rourke won. I thought his performance in The Wrestler was absolutely amazing. I haven't seen In Bruges yet but it's on my list. I better get on that pretty quickly if the Globes are any indication of what the Oscars (registered trademark...) will hold.

Just saw the Wrestler last week and yes, Rourke was good. Loved In Bruges too.

Colin Farrell certainly deserved it but nobody more than Rourke - even if he hasn't got cats!!

January 21...just checking to see if you are about here...

I watched Rourke on the Graham Norton show...I guess it was slow getting here, aired there in Nove or Halloween. Funny stuff.

Hi *,

Just wanted to drop in and say hello.

I haven't been blogging too much, just can't find the time. But glad to see you are still posting, if somewhat less often.

Off to say hi to Red.

I'll be back to check out your new tattoo!

Hi Again,

Went to see Red and I was locked out - which is cool if she doesn't want me to visit, but if its just because I haven't been around for awhile, let her know I'd still like to know how she is doing occasionally.

I hope its all been ok over there,
