10 Sea otters !!! See them?

They hold hands while they sleep. They are the keepers of the kelp forest. Without them, much of the shoreline ecosystem would collapse.

52 Nice! It reminds me of the shore where I grew up. He really captured the light on the water, the wet rocks, the wave crests, and how the color of the water varies . I could hear the surf, small the salt air and feel the spray.

I could never live in New England anymore due to the politics but there are areas I do miss even after almost half a century.

Or a sea otter. I guess the raft is on The other side of the rock.

Daum: Do you think that Donald Trump made everybody go crazy?

Bridge: What do you mean by “made everybody go crazy”?

Daum: In my world, I know a lot of people who were so distressed about the election of Trump that they had to go on anxiety medication. They couldn’t sleep. It dominated their lives, their goals, their thoughts, their relationships, their conversations for four years and even to this day.

Bridge: That is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard. Why would you let one person in the world control your life? Are you that weak?

130 Constantin Alexandrovich Westchiloff *snip* born Aleksandrovich Veschilov was a Russian-American artist known for portraits, genre scenes, landscapes, and seascapes.

He was also an accomplished graphic artist and set designer.

Death records for Westchloff indicate that he was born in St. Petersburg, Russia, 5 December 1878, and died 23 April 1945 in New York. *snip*

Westchiloff latinized his name to Constantin A. Westchiloff in 1922, when he took residency in France. Westchiloff's cause of death was heart attack. He was buried 25 April 1945 in Mount Olivet Cemetery (Queens), in Maspeth, Queens, New York.

One biographer has described Westchiloff as "an enigmatic character."

Don't worry too much about that.

And the other thing is, grandparents of young kids do remember and are speaking out to the entertainment venues and people will tune it out. It's also insulting to women in a way that if you're plain you must automatically be a lesbian. Also, I seem to remember Velma being smart and contributing to the efforts of the team. Now, it's all about who she has sex with. Sad.

196 William Conrad, as I'm sure many of you know, was the narrator of the Rocky and Bullwinkle series. For that he pitched his voice a bit higher and talked faster than he usually did, especially as Frank Cannon about 10 years later. The story goes that he wanted to do more voices on the Rocky show, but Jay Ward vetoed that. "He always sounds like Bill Conrad."

Yes on all 3. Shatner began his career as a stage actor and received a standing ovation as Richard II when he was in his 20s. He wondered at one point whether he should stick with stage work and be an "Olivier-type actor," or go with more commercial work. We can all be glad that he chose the latter.

He started doing that way back when he was in The World of Suzie Wong on Broadway. He didn't care for the play, but gave it his best. Soon he noticed that the audience seemed kind of lulled by the characters' long speeches. So he started pausing where it seemed that his character might be thinking, and it caught their attention.

He did not do it much until his later time on Trek. Even then he made it seem as though Kirk was choosing his words, or sometimes searching for the right word.

Was watching a college football game last Saturday (only because my cousin plays on the team), and a linebacker made a tackle simply by grabbing a guy's jersey with one hand and bringing him down.

I was prompted to tell my wife about the era of tearaway jerseys in the NFL and NCAA back in the day, and figured I'd find some video on YT. Found one such montage of clips, and one really confused me: it was an NFL game where I recognized the announcer's voice, but it didn't seemed weirdly out-of-place because it was the great Vin Scully -- but NOT baseball.

After briefly being disoriented, I then recalled that he also announced football games (and likely other sports) at one time ...

Kathleen Turner
Laura Bailey (by far the best of the modern female voices. When she does husky, it does things.)
Maureen O'Hara had a sexy voice, but it was also coming out of the mouth of Maureen O'Hara- the only way that would not be hot is if she sounded like Sean Hannity

He just never figured out that you don't need to do that stuff on television, because the audience isn't seeing and hearing you from 100 feet away.

No, he was considerably more restrained in his early movie and TV roles. I've seen a lot of them, including his fine work as Archie Goodwin in the 1959 failed pilot for Nero Wolfe. It was not until later in his Trek days that he began to slip off the leash a bit more, and directors let him do it.

His performance in Wrath of Khan is very restrained and powerful.

Yes; the Brooklyn-Bronx dialect (probably close to the way she spoke growing up) and nasal twang was something she adopted for her roles. There is a clip on YooToob of Fran in The Nanny unknowingly eating some wasabi, and her nasality goes away for about 10 seconds. It's hilarious -- very Lucille Ball-like.

That really became obvious in his one man show about Van Gogh. On the other hand, Gary Sinise does a great job of narration, even with a somewhat nasal tenor voice.

Andy Serkis, who played Gollum in the LOTR movies, has a surprisingly deep voice with plenty of resonance. His narration of the LOTR book on CD is a pleasure to listen to.

John Carradine should be mentioned. But he always seemed to be "doing John Carradine." If you want to talk about somebody who often sounded stagey, never mind Bill Shatner, Carradine was it. I never bought him as Dracula.

380 369 John Carradine should be mentioned. But he always seemed to be "doing John Carradine." If you want to talk about somebody who often sounded stagey, never mind Bill Shatner, Carradine was it. I never bought him as Dracula.

Not a great Dracula at all. He wasn't Lon Chaney Jr. bad, or anything, but, yeah, he was just John Carradine with a cape and top hat.

Still, I loved it every time he showed up in a John Ford movie, especially The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance.

There was part of one season where he was out for about 6-10 episodes. The producers had guest stars come in to take the main focus, possibly as backdoorpilots. Hugh O'Brian was one, and even, believe it or not, Bette Davis!

He does a nice turn as Doc Holliday (I think) playing cards with Wyatt Earp (James Stewart) in Cheyenne Autumn. They catch Holliday, they think, cheating, and Wyatt is ready to shoot him. Then Arthur Kennedy points out, "If we kill him, we'll have nobody left in town to play cards with."

Wyatt thinks it over. Then: "Good point. New deck."

Guy does yt videos analyzing singers on the net. Carpenter could duplicate live what she did in the studio so much that people thought the tv show had prerecorded sound.
