So first: today, I sent out a pair of Monstrer Booties, including a homemade card and gift wrap. Ralph and I plan on perfecting the monster boxes (three kinds of monster) and will post here for download. So much fun! Papercraft + knitting, w00t!
I was raised on the Bond movies. So live-tweeting a group viewing? Hey I like that, Johnny, I’m gonna use that!!! (0:49)
Connery’s bond is modest with the towel length, less so with his shorts inseam.
Tomorrow night at 6 PM Pacific Standard Time, my friend @court_anonymous & I will be tweeting the second in the Bond film installments – last week we did #DrNo. If you’d like to join in, Get your copy of From Russia With Love (1963)*, and queue it up. The moment the film fades from the lion-roaring MGM logo, pause it again. Precisely, at 6 PST according to this site, press play. You can join in under the hashtag #BondBFFs on Twitter (Ralph put together a streaming site page here at awesometi.me).
* (My advice? Buy a legal version, and download/torrent it to put the file on the computer through VLC or some such, so streaming internet doesn’t make viewing stutter.)
I loves me some Bond, especially if it’s Connery. My dad was a huge Bond fan and even wanted to give me Ursula as a middle name, since “Dr. No” was his favorite Bond film. Actually he wanted to name me Astrid Ursula. That didn’t fly with my mom, though. She was convinced that kids would tease me and call me “Ostrich”.
Do you have a fave Bond film? I have 2 – “You Only Live Twice” and “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service”. The newest film was also pretty good.
I can’t tell you my favorite Bond film… yet, I’d have to think about it. My favorite Bond girl, Pussy Galore as played by Honor Blackman.
