Sad Hawkeye has been made into a doll!

 photo sadclintdoll2_zps486b9511.jpg

Also, Clint has a new rival. I've ordered several Excalibur comic book collections, and one came today. Clint is furious with me. "Don't you remember my commandment? Thou shalt not read other comics than Hawkeye!" Sorry, Clint. Pete Wisdom and Captain Britain (called Britannic in this collection) were calling to me. And Pete says, "Sod off, ya circus freak!"

I'd love to see those two interact in a future comic. Hawkeye's work with Captain Britain in Secret Avengers was amusing to say the least. (Hawkeye: "I hate you, Captain Britain! Because of you, I hate everything about Britain. Tea, The Smiths, the Queen..." Cap: "Let's leave The Smiths out of this.")

Also, the first photos from the filming of Avengers: Age of Ultron are leaking...Hawkeye has a new outfit. It's like a modern version of Hawkeye's old uniform...just not bright purple and no mask.

The downside is it covers up Jeremy Renner's awesome arms.

Oh, wow...

John Barrowman singing Being Alive from Company (Kennedy Center 2002). HOW DID I MISS THIS I COULD HAVE SEEN HIM I COULD HAVE GOTTEN TICKETS!

Quite possibly one of my favorite Broadway songs- definitely my favorite written by Stephen Sondheim. (Number 2 is Not While I'm Around from Sweeney Todd, number 3 is Send in the Clowns from A Little Night Music, number 4 is On the Steps of the Palace from Into the Woods)

Somebody, need me too much,
Somebody, know me too well,
Somebody, pull me up short
And put me through hell
And give me support
For being alive,
Make me alive.

Make me confused,
Mock me with praise,
Let me be used,
Vary my days.
But alone is alone, not alive.

Somebody, crowd me with love,
Somebody, force me to care,
Somebody, make me come through,
I'll always be there,
As frightened as you,
To help us survive
Being alive,
Being alive,
Being alive!


I tried to watch NBC's live Sound of Music. I couldn't get through it. Carrie Underwood just can't act, and the show is more than just singing Do-Re-Mi. The kids were pretty blah. Audra MacDonald as Mother Superior was the only thing I liked. I turned it off and started listening to Broadway show albums, particularly Company. For a minute, I imagined Jeremy Renner singing Being Alive. He's got the range, and he's said he wants to do a musical someday. I bet he'd be great as Bobby!

Edited because I got my American Idol chicks messed up. Duh.

Okayyyy...

Two things I have learned tonight: The Denver Broncos are capable of blowing a 24-0 lead (and I have no hopes they’ll score again and win), and Jeremy Renner cannot pronounce the word “debuted”. Time for bed, I think.

Seriously, Renner? You're presenting a musical act at an awards show, you're an entertainer yourself, and you can't pronounce debuted? "Debooed", really? I think he may have been a wee bit drunk again.

And Broncos, JFC. What happened? Suddenly the Patriots are ahead 31-24. You guys got cocky tonight.

Jeremy Renner at the Thor 2: The Dark World premiere, just a couple of hours ago!
 photo tumblr_mvrv3hITWp1qa5fz0o1_500_zpsd70213bc.jpg photo tumblr_mvrus5Sayd1sd3qbyo1_500_zpsfc3054d9.jpg

I'm liking this new, mature Jeremy. I hope his appearance at the premiere means he's definitely in Avengers 2.

I was hoping to go to the AMC Thor marathon (Thor, Avengers, Thor 2), but I couldn't do it. I didn't get to see Thor in the theater, so I really wanted to go. And it would have been fun to see Avengers on the big screen again. But I should at least get to see Thor 2 this weekend.

LOL.

I've never seen Hot Tub Time Machine, but I'm tempted to just because John Cusack is in it, and because I grew up in the 80's. Then I saw this gif on Tumblr...naked John jumping into said hot tub. Oh my God. ROTFLMAO. He sure is brave, I'll give him that. He still is sexy, though...mostly because of his eyes.

 photo tumblr_mogw622eAN1qhalcko1_500_zpsd9a3af43.gif

I watched a few clips and the humor is kind of gross. I think I'll pass on the rest of the movie. I guess it's a guy flick.
mollybarton: (inkvoices hawkeye)
I finally got the bad taste of that movie out. I watched Must Love Dogs last night. I hadn't seen it in a few years...I forgot how much I loved it. I just loved Diane Lane and John Cusack in it. Yeah, it was a by-the-numbers chick flick, but I don't care. Besides, the late night condom hunt still makes me howl (sorry) with laughter.

 photo tumblr_mul3zpvUNR1rhe4i6o1_500_zps6d9bc9a6.jpg

Cute, funny John Cusack is what I like best. :)

My new inhaler is taking good care of my coughing fits/mild asthma, but it's making me tired and depressed. I've barely been able to get out of bed the last two days. It always takes me a week or so to adjust to a new medication, especially a strong one. I hope this isn't going to be permanent. My doctor doesn't think it will be, but she wanted to keep me breathing until it passes!

Mom and Dad went to Louisville. They've met baby Riley, and are totally smitten. I hope I get to see her eventually. Sarah loved the cross stitch I did for her:

A RennerHawk moment- it's been a while. The character posters for American Hustle are out- here is Jeremy. God...the hair...the clothes! The 70s were horrible. But he is still kinda hot.

John Cusack is still adorable, even when he's playing an assassin. :p

 photo tns6_zps01ae4fc7.jpg

I grew out of my old crush, though, because I grew up and realized there wasn't a real Lloyd Dobler waiting for me anywhere. :( Darn you, John, for creating that guy! :p Say Anything...is still one of my favorite movies, though.
mollybarton: (inkvoices hawkeye)
I shouldn't have watched The Numbers Station! My long-buried crush on John Cusack has resurfaced after God knows how many years. I'm not even thinking of Say Anything...though that was the one that had all the girls in my senior class cooing. I'm going way back to Better Off Dead! LOL. I loved that movie. Even now, he still has that sad, sweet face. I just wish he would pick better movies. I no longer have a VCR, so digging out my battered copies of Better Off Dead and Say Anything...would be pointless. Guess I'll have to settle for Must Love Dogs, which was cute.

Horrible thought- if he and Jeremy Renner ever did a movie together, it would probably kill me. That would be too much awesomeness.
mollybarton: (inkvoices hawkeye)

No? Phooey. Stills from American Hustle are popping up online. The cast is pretty much unrecognizable! Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner, Christian Bale, and Jennifer Lawrence, all dressed up in 70's outfits with the hair and make up to match! I swear, Jennifer looks like my Darci doll...

 photo tumblr_mqrhidsL5z1rrzf6ao1_r1_1280_zpse384c130.jpg

Is that "The Hustle" I'm hearing in the background? :p http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wj23_nDFSfE I'm getting flashbacks, and I was a little kid back then! The movie better have a soundtrack to match the clothes and hair!

Whoa.

A photo of Jeremy Renner...getting ready to film Kill the Messenger. (I edited it slightly.) He looks happy... but seems older. A bit thinner than usual, too.
 photo jrennktm_zps2bd9c1b4.jpg

Yay, his chest hair seems to have grown back. I hate manscaping! And he's wearing jewelry again.

Saw The Lone Ranger this weekend. I enjoyed it. I'm sorry it's bombing at the box office. It really should have been called "Tonto", because Johnny Depp was pretty much the whole movie. :p
mollybarton: (inkvoices hawkeye)
Well, not entirely. Mom, Dad, and I went to Riverside to see Legally Blonde: The Musical. It was so much fun.

Unfortunately, I got REALLY sick overnight, and had to miss church and the Father's Day dinner. Everyone went to the German place downtown Fredericksburg (Paul's favorite). Mom and Dad brought me Wiener Schnitzel and Spaetzle, but I'm too sick to eat it right now. :(

I made a great cake, though. Everyone enjoyed it.

Holy crap, the latest photos from the American Hustle set are insane. Beer belly Christian Bale in a velvet suit, Amy Adams in a dress cut so low you almost see everything, Bradley Cooper's insane "perm" (it's not real), and of course, Jeremy Renner looking very much like a late 1970's politician. In sad news, the real life man behind Renner's "Carmine Polito" character, Angelo Errichetti, passed away yesterday at age 84.

I don't have a link, but an earlier set photo of Jennifer Lawrence made her look like my Darci doll from the 70's. Both the hair and outfit looked exactly like one of the doll's. Up swept hair, gold disco outfit.

I just bid on a Darci on ebay. I hope I win her- I'd love to have that piece of my childhood back! Never removed from the box, too!

 photo T2eC16NzUE9s389y3-BRlriPE8Dg60_57_zpse4665be3.jpg

I had the blonde and the redhead. Never found the brunette, or Dana, Darci's black friend. I had several of the outfits, too. I loved her so much more than Barbie...I don't know why she only lasted a few years. I guess Kenner was more interested in promoting there Star Wars line!

Puppy!

Jeremy spotted out and about today with one of his dogs in New York, where he will be doing the last bit of filming for American Hustle.

He really does like those French Bulldogs.

LOL.

I'm a "mean girl" at the Jeremy Renner board at imdb.com. Just because I don't think Jeremy is a perfect human being. Please. I've never met the man, but I can still see he's got flaws just like anyone else. I don't see him as this saintly prince that some of those girls do.

I hope his career isn't about to stall. It's sounding as if he's not going to be a part of either The Avengers 2 or Mission: Impossible 5. If that's true, I'm not going to see either of them.
mollybarton: (inkvoices hawkeye)
More set photos from American Hustle. I just can't get over Jeremy Renner's poofy hair.

 photo 1_zpsa56d7304.jpg

 photo 2_zpsf3fb2952.jpg

I am so glad the 70's are long gone. :p

Looks like he's wearing a Rotary pin, too. The detail with these costumes is looking good. Still don't know why they're changing so many character names. It's not as if too many people in the ABSCAM scandal were innocent and needed protection! Renner was playing real-life Camden, NJ Mayor Angelo Errichetti, the name has now been changed to Carmine Polito. Guess they changed it because Errichetti is still alive.
mollybarton: (inkvoices hawkeye)
Jeremy Renner actually showed up! His agent was with him...perhaps to make sure he behaved? Lots of free booze at these things...especially the after parties. :p

Hot as always, still has the dark hair for American Hustle...not poofy hair, thank goodness.

Jeremy with Kevin Spacey!

 photo tumblr_mlyl7z4Mix1s4s15po1_500_zps66f87e92.jpg

I actually watched the coverage. President Obama was rather funny, and Conan O'Brien had fun blasting CNN.
mollybarton: (inkvoices hawkeye)
Last post of the day, I promise. Two more ABSCAM shots of Christian Bale and Jeremy Renner on set:

Every set photo I see makes me even more excited about the movie. But I can't get over Jeremy's hair!

On the other side of the pond, a press release photo of Bryan Dick for Public Enemy:

The long hair is coming back, yay!
