Welcome to the world of the Vincent D'Onofrio obsessed - and a bit of real life thrown in.

A Question of Size

So let's suppose that Vincent was just 6'2". Pretty tall still, and with everything appropriately scaled, quite a hunk. At 6' he'd still tower over me, and I'm sure he'd attract me. At 5'10" he'd become more run-of-the-mill and ordinary. At 5'8" I'd have to look up at the little shrimp, but it wouldn't feel like it. The bulk that's spread over all that huge frame would be squashed into something altogether more compact, and even if he was scaled down, there's not so much height to spread it over, so he might look like an egg on legs.

But he's 6'4" and hefty. With big feet, hands and...he's a prime example of an Alpha Male, which is what attracted us to him in the first place.

Are we shallow?

I do hope so!

No Secret

Not only is it not a secret among us, but if you are anything like me, you can't keep it from those who know you in the "real" world either - we're in love with Vincent!

Two-and-half minutes, Mr Welles

This time it's The Hollies, not The Beatles. There would have been one with Fleetwood Mac, but it's been removed for copyright reasons.

Better stick with the Fab Four, then.

Remembering 7/7

In Hyde Park in London today, The Prince of Wales unveiled the memorial to the victims of the London bombings in 2005.

The steel stelae - 52 of them - represent those who died in the attacks. They are named on a plaque nearby. The columns themselves are engraved only with the date and place of the attacks, because the randomness of the bombs meant that absolutely anyone travelling on London Transport that day could have been killed.


The relatives and survivors were consulted by the artist Carmody Groarke, and are said to be delighted with the sculpture, which apparently looks wonderful with the sun glinting off it.

Sadly, not much of that today.

If Not For Vincent

Ah, my two favourite men again, the gorgeous Vincent accompanied by My Sweet George.

Chains

On reflection I should have included Hotel Paradise in this one.

Remember Jazzy's Challenge?

Last year, Jazzy set us a video challenge. This was my offering:



This is also a good chance to remember the wonderful George Harrison, whose death passed without even a tiny fraction of the attention Michael Jackson's got, despite his having been a member of the most important group of popular musicians ever.

No, I am NOT biased!
