June Foray has passed away at the age of 99, just two months before what would have been her 100th birthday. May she rest in peace. She is likely best known as the voice of Rocky The Flying Squirrel and Natasha on The Rocky And Bullwinkle Show. I think Nickelodeon played that quite a bit back in the 80’s.

After I looked through her IMDB filmography, I saw that she basically did voice work on a lot of the shows of my childhood. She was the voice of various characters in Denver The Last Dinosaur, The Smurfs, The Incredible Hulk (the 1982 cartoon, narrated by Stan Lee), and The Real Ghostbusters. She was the voice of Aunt May in Spider-Man And His Amazing Friends. Mrs. Featherby in both the Ducktales series, as well as Ducktales The Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp (1990).

She was the voice of the Talky Tina doll in an episode of The Twilight Zone.

She was in Rikki-Tikki-Tavi (1975) as the voices of Nagaina the Cobra, Wife of Nag; Teddy's Mother; and Darzee's Wife. I think that, and The Cricket In Times Square (1973) were on Nickelodeon a lot, too. She was the voice of the Hag in Faeries (1981), which I watched when I was likely only a year old--2 at the most...however old I was, a moment where a shadow is stabbed and starts bleeding left an impression, for I searched for it for decades before finding the title.

Maybe you can find it on the internet: by the way, did you know that the United States in May/June bombed Syria and Afghanistan?

I "heard" it on the news. (Los Angeles Times)

Yeah, *that* won't hurt the children at *all.*

[personal profile] kay_mulan Why would we have a problem with Russia right now? What we can learn from President Trump is that business with Russia from an American's standpoint probably means money for both. Perhaps it *is* unconstitutional that his family members (daughter, sons, son-in-law) are working from the White House. Also, it shows a lack of... knowing enough good people to staff yourself with competency, to field the international scene with dignity, experience, credibility. Would white people please stand up and say there's nothing wrong with adopting Russian children who need homes? I myself probably wouldn't be able to take care of anybody in California's foster system in the next five years. But I would hope to, in the future, regardless of the color of the child. I don't think "the ordinary Russian" really gives a happy flying cufk that Donald Trump won the presidency.

[personal profile] kay_mulan The 50 year old "Communist rebellion" mentioned in this article is non-existent.

The "Muslim insurgents" I read somewhere are Islamic State -not from the country- radical forces that have decimated the Lake Lanao/Marawi region, who have used the name ISIS.

It's my birthday...

Series: Part 3 of Opera Over The Rainbow

Opera has always presented a more overt demand for suspension of disbelief than most other dramatic forms, and never more so than with its ongoing fascination with plots based on hanahaki disease. The middle of the nineteenth century saw the emergence of this tidy, sentimental metaphor for tuberculosis – a gory, unpleasant and all too real ailment – and it has lingered ever since. Blood was replaced with roses, hacking coughs with immaculate arias, lingering deaths with graceful swoons.

Chapter 1: Violetta, o, la traviata (Giuseppe Verdi and F. M. Piave)
Chapter 2: Michael of Strelsau (Sir Arthur Seymour Sullivan and Julian Sturgis)

I have also: been swimming in cold water; had my heart gently broken by the latest Madame C- C- instalment. We're going out for dinner later. It's a quiet birthday, but a good one so far.

[personal profile] mirabile, I received your Get Well Soon flowers -- thank you so much! They cheered me up a lot today on my last day of recuperating at home, and will continue to do so at night.

(Feel free to click the thumbnail.)

Also, y'all, I love this show, especially this season: Killjoys up to & including 3x04 ''The Lion, The Witch, and the Warlords'' )

Because my wife purchased it after watching the movie trailer, I too read the book, mostly in waiting rooms: A Wrinkle In Time )

I may pass on the follow-up books of the quartet (the ones I haven't read already), but I'm definitely looking forward to the movie, which looks visually stunning and well-cast.

I really want this shirt (Amazon link). Only not with what is obviously a warrior tank, because my main is a brewmaster and proud of it.

How hard do we think it would be for me to bribe [personal profile] darthneko into designing me an appropriately Pandaren shirt for my birthday?

(Someday, I will get up the nerve to try tanking in a group, instead of swapping to windwalker in raids and dungeons. Because I like being able to take a hit - I really love the stagger/purify mechanic brewmasters have - and also, having a healer glued to my ass makes me feel like a GOD. A GOD I SAY. Sadly, I fear messing up mechanics and causing a group wipe.)

I need an icon of my tank looking tanky.
