uh… Eli Wallach has died. That mens something this means shit asshole
Blimey that's sad. Poor guy.
I'm never first. .trash day..Morning ya'll. .
Who's Eli W Sandy ? Hello all.
Poor guy, so young!
Good morning / day all
Don't worry sandy, Enty is sure to post Eli next or soon after, making this C DaN In Memorium:Just like the Oscars….YayMorning everyone!
You don't know who Eli Wallach is, Violet?? Only one of the most prolific actors out there: Google!
If I don't know without googling. There's no hope for me is there?
I'm sure his family would disagree @Sandy
Sugarbread, Actual trash day? or just a general summary of the day so far… : D
Hey guys. I've been toying with an idea: this is the post we all kinda greet on, being the first and all, but some of us are up sooner due to time zone differences and / or small bladders, what would you think about a Bookie Wook morning post? Also because this is where we get trolled periodically for alls the OT. Just an idea, if it's stupid I won't even worry about it.
Sugarbread, it's FRIST. or just not the same
More than likely Enty didn't know Eli Wallach passed because it wasn't on TMZ, this was. I liked Caleb on Survivor. He was with that horrid little prick Colton. I seriously wanted to throw that shit in the fire or drown him.
On that note, morning everyone:)
Pretty much, no.
Im sure his family thinks so too @FSP. But this is an entertainment site and Eli Wallach was one of the greatest CHARACTER actors of all-time and deserves recognition over somebody who nobody ever heard of.
Where's the winky face?
Think Old School Actor, Violet…The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly?Stage actor who did the Western Explosion in the Sixties/ Seventies…The Magnificent Seven..
I'll bring Bloody Mary's.
Morning TTM, Have an hour + before working the crappiest week ever scheduled…
Thanks Steamy I DID just google. Still don't recognise. But there you go.
So sorry, I don't make the rules, Gayeld does. I'm in enforcement. Non-winky face
Wherever, whenever. I'm easy (it's been said).
I'll bring the Ceasars! Any news on job front, dirty bird? MADLD?
Violet he's got so many credits there are too many to list–hundreds if not thousand stage, screen and televsion. He was still working on things a few years ago even in his 90s. He was married to Anne Jackson and they usually worked together on projects.
Winky face, Violet?
Oh good morning/afternoon/evening everyone! :))
+1, @FSP! Jesus, Sandy, did someone piss in your Cornflakes this morning? How about you give us a rating system every time someone dies so we can know on a scale of 1-10 how much respect we should give to the deceased?
nothing like waking up to a sad story. R.I.P. @Violet for a more recent reference on Eli Wallach, "THE HOLIDAY"! He played the old Hollywood screenwriter(?)/neighbor who Kate Winslet & Jack Black befriends.
Eli Wallach played the cute old man in The Holiday. Kate Winslet's character helps him out. RIP.
Karen this guys a 1 Eli's at least a 9.
Weird or long hours Steamy? Or both?
@sandybrook, stay classy.
Rolo. I watched that just the other night!
@ Karen, heheheh
Married Asian Dread Locked Dude. Sorry, forgot the Hot, so it should be HMADLD
OMFG!! Steamiest (that's what my phone puts in, so even it knows your hot) that was awesome! Morning to you too!!
I gotta find out how y'all do that.
he's practically the best part(& a large part) of that movie..
Ooh. Grumpy today Sandy? That's whats trotted out to me whenever I disagree.
I'm glad to hear that, Violet. Holding out is for suckers
No.. we get one trash day a week. .sucks balls. . Get the trash by the curb early or it sits outside for another week. I am usually good aboot getting it out the night before but not if I'm tired.
Violet–Eli Wallach grew up in my neighborhood way before me obviously and he is one of the most famous alumni of my High School (and there are many, mny including Brbra Streisand). HJe had other contributiuons to show business besides acting in it–he founded The Actor's Studio too.
Ohhh, I haven't had enough coffee yet. I actually called my phone carrier and have had his # blocked. That's why my phone died on Sunday night. My battery said phuck this $hit after text 75+.
Who knew hot guys could be bunny boilers?
Well, I kinda get where sandy was going with that: important actor with decades long history of quality and significant work, but rather enty posts someone from a reality show that not too many people know of. The old:who died when someone else died that nobody noticed a la Princess Di and Mother Theresa. HOWEVER, once you call a 26-year-old dead man a piece of shite, anything you say after is gonna be wrong.
Sandy's a 1, Karen's a 9.
TTM, BOTH! Cook some, supervise some, wait some and Have my hours cut because I'm making more per hour…
Gross, Steamy! Thatz not okay
Karens a 10
I dn't kno who either guy is.Death is sad y'all.
FSP is lookin' good as usual.
75 texts from dude?? Please tell me you left the mattress in the alley, right?? No face to face?
Sandybrook: asshole confirmed.
Morning Orvilla and WareCat!
Yeah, I'm with FSP and Karen on this one.
Huh, shows I didn't watch, I figured Colton was an unfortunately named female. I didn't even catch the single e on fiance (can't do the ~ over the e, ain't gonna try.) Obviously, time for my second energy drink of the morning.
Just got up, morning guys.
People seem to safely be grumbling enough about other stuff so as not to trifle with OT, so let me say Good day all!
Also that is awful. Trains still derail? That's gotta be a one in a million way to go anymore. Poor guy.
Morning Reno, TnC and anybody else who posts after this..: D
I love the idea of a book club morning post. Sounds good to me.
jinx @writergirl!! -@Violet,thats a weird coincidence!.cute movie..We've been getting hit with a TON of Holiday movies these past 2 weeks. Is it a 6 month thing or something? Holiday Inn, Elf, The Grinch(jim carreyversion),The Family Man..its a bit odd.
BOOM Meaningless meeting over. Howdy All
Damn, so young. RIP
I loved that character Eli Wallach played in the Holiday! RIP
And I remember this Survivor contestant…. His fiance (on the show) was waaaaay too over-the-top emotional. Was glad to see him take himself out. But Caleb, we liked him. Rooted for him to get to final 3. It's sad that he's died and in a tragic way. RIP
Yay good morning/afternoon everyone.
So very sad. He was one of the most incredibly likable characters on that show.. I couldn't understand why he was w/that d-bag BF of his.
Oh, my. 26? Tragically young. Very sad. Rest in peace.
Good morning me and TNC!
@SugarTits Morning !!! OMG same annoying thing in my town. I hate it. Old town was twice a week. @TTMMorning Doll. I would totally do a social over at book club in the am. @SteamyMorning.
Morning Folks to anyone I missed. Still feeling off today. Hope you're having a better day than me.
I found a couple of bottles of Bloody Mary mix in the fridge when I moved in. I can bring em!
"Survivor contestant dies"
Irony? Somewhere the ghouls at the network extinguished his torch
Maybe the fact that a young man, who had his whole life to look forward to, died is a tragedy and deserves to be mentioned.A 98 year old actor who had achieved everything he could, and was very successful and loved, isn't such a tragedy. It's the natural order of things.If you can't muster some sympathy for this young man there is something wrong.I hope he rests in peace.
Wow…only 26??? This is so sad.
Condolences to his family.
He was a sweetie. Poor kid.
Well I don't watch survivor, so I don't know who this guy is. And I googled Eli, And I have literally not watched anything he has been in, so I don't know him either.That being said, a 26 year old dying in an accidental death is (imo) far more tragic than a 98 year old dying of old are surrounded by loved ones.
@It's just U, very well said.
Very sad. I didn't watch the show. Word around the Ham is that he was a super nice guy.
I understand what Sandy is saying. The death of a particular person may not be important to some people, but is to others, and it can be infuriating when it isn't acknowledged or is quickly forgotten about. People die just as tragically as Caleb daily, and they don't get even a blurb about their lives or accomplishments, even when they've done things far more noteworthy than appear on a reality TV show.
And for the recored, nobody deserves to die, be they two or two hundred. 98 may seem "old enough" to some, but I'm sure it's no less painful for Eli's loved ones than it is for Caleb's. If we're gonna go as far as to say that the death of an elderly person isn't a big deal, then we could say that for everyone because the truth is we all die, but we just don't know when it will happen
Yay Cocoa! On that note, Steamy, can you email me?
LOL @ FSP, Karen and Ray!!!
This is pretty sad. Caleb was a very sweet, humble guy. His fiance, Colton was a huge drama queen, but Caleb was liked by pretty much everyone.
He was very young to die, they were going to get married this year, I think.
Its just U- amen!
Okay! I asked Steamy if she would mind doing the "good morning" post over on Bookie Wook, she's already posted!
What a way to go. I hope he was on his way home after having a very fun trip rather than just starting his adventure. I read on another site that he was between cars as the train derailed and was crushed by the cars. Think of the split second you're between cars as you open those heavy doors and step quickly to the next car.
