I was thinking about James Blunt and googled a picture of him in uniform, was then reminded of how many photos I’ve filed away of Brits dressed for battle [Jason Isaacs is particularly good at this], and went kind of berserk with this post. I have to say, the additional swag of the fighter pilot make Tennant and May look pretty good.
A Brit a Day Post #1066. I’ve always wanted to say that.
My 11-year-old son accused me this morning, rather indignantly, of dumping Tom Hiddleston for James May. I don’t know what difference it makes to him, unless it’s because he knows there are 130+ episodes of Top Gear on Netflix and he may be forced to watch them all.
Anyway, here, to prove I am capable of decades-long devotion, have some video of Alan Rickman capering with Michael Gambon at the expense of Dan Radcliffe. And you will earn a permanent place on the Cool Wall if you know what this has to do with Top Gear.
I’m taking off the week to celebrate Christmas, and after that, who knows, I might just go straight to Anime L A. I’ll try to check in here between times. I’ll just leave some stocking stuffers here–be Merry! [in a non-LOTR sort of way.]
Alan Rickman has graciously stepped into the wings this morning to make way for a nostalgic photo of his HP cast mates, Emma Watson and Dan Radcliffe. Emma is seen here in ‘The Goblet of Fire’ failing miserably at becoming a wallflower.
