Hello… where have I’ve been? I just saw this movie tonight, THE LEGEND OF TARZAN (2016) and I’m in love with Alexander Skarsgård!
It has been years since the man once known as Tarzan (Alexander Skarsgård) left the jungles of Africa behind for a gentrified life as John Clayton III, Lord Greystoke, with his beloved wife, Jane (Margot Robbie) at his side. Now, he has been invited back to the Congo to serve as a trade emissary of Parliament, unaware that he is a pawn in a deadly convergence of greed and revenge, masterminded by the Belgian, Captain Leon Rom (Christoph Waltz). But those behind the murderous plot have no idea what they are about to unleash.
I really had not intenstion of watch this movie, but after the first 15 minutes, I couldn’t stop watching him, I mean the movie.
Know, I have to find out when it’s on again, so I can watch it again and see any of the parts I missed while I was starring at Alexander Skarsgård!

Saw a post on Facebook…
“Pretty In Pink” turns 30 years old. The post was from 2016.
And this song from the movie was the video attached.
Jon Cryer who played Duckies is featured singing and dancing to the classic Otis Reading song “Try A Little Tenderness.”
Not only is that a great song, but snaps to Jon Cryer for his version of the song.

Recently, I finally got the chanc to watch the movie, “The Martian” (2015) starring Matt Damon.
The Martian is a 2015 American science fiction film directed by Ridley Scott, based on Andy Weir’s 2011 novel The Martian. Matt Damon stars as an astronaut who is mistakenly presumed dead and left behind on Mars. The film depicts his struggle to survive and others’ efforts to rescue him. The film’s ensemble cast also features Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Jeff Daniels, Michael Peña, Kate Mara, Sean Bean, Sebastian Stan, Aksel Hennie, Donald Glover and Chiwetel Ejiofor.
I liked the movie, but I think I liked the music more.
Got to love music from the 70’s.
- “Turn the Beat Around” by Vicki Sue Robinson
- “Hot Stuff” by Donna Summer
- “Rock the Boat” by The Hues Corporation
- “Don’t Leave Me This Way” by Thelma Houston
- “Starman” by David Bowie
- “Waterloo” by ABBA
- “Love Train” by The O’Jays
- “I Will Survive” by Gloria Gaynor (end credits)
Here’s one of my favorites.

Well, today was a sad day for an icon from youth.
Mary Tyler Moore, whose witty and graceful performances on two top-rated television shows in the 1960s and ’70s helped define a new vision of American womanhood, died on Wednesday in Greenwich, Conn. She was 80.
I was a fan of her show “The Mary Tyler Moore Show.”
I watched the reruns of “The Dick Van Dyke,” but know her better from her own show.
So sad that our stars from are youth are passing away.
At least we will always have her TV shows and movies to watch.
And here is one of my Top 10 TV Theme songs…
R.I.P. Mary Tyler Moore.
You did turn the world on with your smile.

I saw this post a couple of times on Facebook. But today I wanted to post it on my blog. Call it start of a new year, wishful thinking or a foolish romantic. As my friend, Scott, said… you never know what could happen. BOOM!
Great advice from Liam Neeson.
“They say the hardest thing in the world is losing someone you love. Someone you grew old with and watched grow everyday. Someone who showed you how to love. It’s the worst thing to ever happen to anyone. My wife died unexpectedly. She brought me so much joy. She was my everything. Those 16 years of being her husband taught me how to love unconditionally. We have to stop and be thankful for our spouses. Because, life is very short. Spend time with your spouses. Treat them well. Because, one day, when you look up from your phone, they won’t be there anymore. What I truly learned most of all is, live and love everyday like it’s your last. Because, one day, it will be. Take chances and go live life. Tell the ones you love, that you love them everyday. Don’t take any moment for granted. Life is worth living.”

In memory of all that have past away in 2016. Here are three different versions of In Memoriam. Hopefully there will be no more deaths for the rest of the year.

*I Smell Cake.
Man, 2016 has been a terrible year for deaths of the entertainers we grew up with
Today, Debbie Reynolds — who rose to stardom in “Singin’ in the Rain” and quickly became a staple among Hollywood royalty — died Wednesday as a result of a stroke. Just one day after her daughter Carrie Fisher passed away … this according to her son Todd.
“She’s now with Carrie and we’re all heartbroken,” Reynolds’ son, Todd Fisher.
How sad. She must have really wanted to be with her daughter, Carrie.
I had never seen the movie “Singin’ in the Rain” but a couple of years ago, they played the movie at the theatre. I was so glad that the first time I saw it was on the big screen. The theater was packed, old and young people were in the audience.
They are going to show it again in theaters in January 2017, I’m going to be there again, to enjoy this classic movie on the big screen.
R.I.P. Debbie Reynolds… you are with your daughter and you will be missed.
Also, these entertainers recently passed away too:
Dec 26 — Ricky Harris Dead: Comedian and ‘Everybody Hates Chris’ Actor Dies at 54
Dec 26 — George S. Irving dead: Tony-winning actor who voiced ‘Santa Claus’ Heat Miser was 94.
