These Fragments I Have Shored Against My Ruins…

Adieu…

Hieronymo’s Mad Againe…

Paul Bettany displays simply towering talent in his portrayal here of serial killer Ted Kaczynski. Such examples of the following phenomenon are not without precedent, but they are rare fowl indeed. The Phenomenon: Bettany manages to be more Unabomber-esque than the Unabomber himself. Sure, it’s not possible; but this seems to pose little hindrance. Like G. Oldman as Stansfield, Olivier as Christian Szell, and Brando as Lee Clayton, Bettany simply has that much power to spare. It is rare indeed that a performance can truly be categorized as iconic…but the word applies fully in this situation. Incredible mastery. I find it haunting, in any number of ways, to this day. Indelible.

King!

My buddy Daniel with his much beloved companion, King. This individual, this Truly Great King, a canine of untold powers, was recently re-united, and very justly/happily so, with the gentleman pictured, who happens to be another remarkable living being. But we here speak of Dog-dom; King is, quite simply, not your regular-type dime-a-dozen-er; an awe-inducer of the highest echelons, he leaves countless slackened jaws in his wake.

King II
King VI
Note small, white Lurker at the Threshold: Sparky.

King rightly ascends to the very Summit of Things, with his faithful, dogged confrère Dan with him all the way.

Noted flΓ’neur, ombudsman, prose stylist, enigmatic recluse, photographer, and soi-disant “Towering genius” Matt Leahy is doing something, something the inner (or outer) machinations of which we can only, well, sit drooling in slack-jawed bamboozlement. At. Yes, “at”. For starters. Call him {me}… αΌˆΟΟ‡Ξ―Ξ»ΞΏΟ‡ΞΏΟ‚ .

Ah, the Irish. The Clancy Brothers, The Dubliners, and Brennan/Roche.

On to The Dubliners, then.

The Dubliners and The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem and Shane MacGowan work their inimitable magic. Treasures abound. Don’t miss Brennan & Roche.

Brilliant performances—both very low-key, but extremely effective—by Ned Beatty and Taylor Nichols, which really get across what a sociopath is: for one thing, they generally don’t stand out. And, of course, there are other qualities….
