Sir Richard Attenborough. The Creature from the Black Lagoon and the Loss of a Library
Sadly Sir Richard Attenborough died yesterday just before his ninety first birthday and although sad one has to say 91 is not a bad age to get too. He was rather famous but I can’t help but think that some folk are going to get him confused, because folk are not always as well informed about stuff as they should be. In order to alleviate this possible error I would just like to say I was really impressed when he did that documentary where he got to sit with all those Gorillas in the
out in Borneo or the like. He even once taught
fly, how cool is that. Phoenix
And who could forget his directing in the film Gandalf, where the peaceful wizard leads his people to freedom despite the terrible ways of the Imperialists led by the terrible Darth Vader or was it Queen
But my own personal favourite was his appearance as the Creature from the Black Lagoon in The Great Escape, Just for a short time I thought he had the German guards fooled too.
In other news the office is not the office (thats at home not work) any longer what was the library is now the office and we no longer have a library. And what was the office is now an empty room with some stuff in it that has not been moved yet.
Ooooo and I have been playing drums to scare the grey and rain away, it might work who can tell.
