nobody can eat 50 eggs! paul newman r.i.p.

one of my all-time favourite movie actors has died. in the days when i was attracted to men, he was my model for the perfect man. i loved his values, his deeds and, o yes, his looks.

regarding his body of work, the three films that come to mind most clearly are 'cat on a hot tin roof', 'cool hand luke', and 'butch cassidy and the sundance kid' (i loved the music of 'the sting' more than the film). of these, the most memorable bit is the egg-eating:

is this possible? the bbc checked it out in hollywood science

by those of us who never knew the man, he will never be missed as long as his films continue to be show. to his family and friends, my condolences.

    hey, how're you?
    i doing homework,
    and internet.

    so..i feel sorry that he died..
    he looks great though..

    anyway, what's the point?
    you want taking time? or??
    you want to know about someone???

    thank you, it was fun, the article about 50 egges. giggle.

  2. if someone wants to be mysterious, it is ok by me. i figure they will let me know who they are when they are ready to :-)

    on the other hand, i certainly am curious!

    Sigh....Paul Newman won the Oscar for The Color of Money, which I watched with teeth constantly gritting because Tom Cruise was so obnoxious (mah nishtanah...) in it... Newman SHOULD have won for The Verdict.
