  5. Sir Ian Holm: Lord of the Rings and Alien star dies aged 88 Stage and film actor Sir Ian Holm, who played Bilbo Baggins in The Lord of the Rings films, has died aged 88. Sir Ian, Oscar-nominated as Olympic running coach Sam Mussabini in Chariots of Fire, also played the android Ash in 1979's Alien. "It is with great sadness we can confirm that the actor Sir Ian Holm CBE passed away this morning at the age of 88," his agent said in a statement. "He died peacefully in hospital with his family and carer," he added. His illness was Parkinson's-related, his agent confirmed. Holm, who also played Dr Willis in The Madness of King George, was classically trained and put in memorable performances in numerous plays. The National Theatre remembered him as an "extraordinary actor" whose performance as King Lear in 1997 created "wonderful memories". Samuel West, whose father Timothy played Gloucester in the production, recalled on Twitter that the older cast members were all asked to grow beards. When they came together for a read-through, he remembered, "[director] Richard Eyre said it looked like a garden gnome convention". Sir Ian originated the role of Lenny in Harold Pinter's The Homecoming in 1965, reprising his performance on film eight years later. However, his stage career was cut short after he developed acute stage fright during a production of The Iceman Cometh in 1976. He went on to work primarily in film, thanks to roles in such high-profile movies as The Fifth Element and the Lord of the Rings series. It was 1981's Chariots of Fire that saw him receive his best supporting actor Oscar nomination. The same film won him a Bafta, as did his supporting performance in The Bofors Gun in 1968. Sir Ian played Bilbo in Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings films, having played Frodo Baggins for BBC radio in 1981. Diminutive in stature, he was similarly well-cast as Pod in 1992 children's series The Borrowers. "I'm never the same twice," he told the Los Angeles Times in 2000, "and I'm not a movie star-type, so people don't demand that I'm always the same." He received a knighthood in 1998 for his contribution to drama following the CBE he received in 1989. Comedian Eddie Izzard remembered Sir Ian as "a wonderful actor", adding: "It's so sad to see him go." Director Edgar Wright also paid tribute, calling him "a genius actor who brought considerable presence to parts funny, heartbreaking and terrifying". "What an actor," tweeted League of Gentleman star Reece Shearsmith. "A lifetime of incredible performances." Peep Show star Robert Webb was among many others to express respect for "a splendid actor" who "could be very funny too".

  10. I know you're watching, @sportsgal88 and I think you're the last lady standing, so happy mother' day to you!!! (And any lurkers)
  11. just a reminder that following a member around the board to snipe insults at as many of their posts as you can is not tolerated have as lively debate, if you like. show the world what a dufus you are by taunting your opponent with baby talk insults. this is a free speech board where you are MOSTLY expected to fight your own battles and MOSTLY allowed to say anything you want mostly HipKat and Down & Out, you are both on notice. there will be no more warnings. the next time i see someone dogging someone all over the place, or worse making even a veiled threat (youve both been good since i last warned you - so far), you are getting a time out of course, this standard applies to everyone. its just obvious which two posters are the biggest problem right now and for heavens sake, get some anger management therapy. you both are way too quick to become enraged. thats a really bad thing and im sure it has negative consequences in your lives. there are professionals who've spent decades helping thousands of people overcome anger management problems. you could and should both add your names to that list
  12. Cleaning my basement, I’ve come across some old newspapers I’ve kept because of some event. I know I have more, but I’ve found these so far. Remember when Buffalo was a two newspaper town?
  13. I figured a thread of songs dedicated to the lockdown and everything related to the lockdown and situation in general might be a fun way to help deal with things, as especially as the weeks become months, as a story on even BuffaloRumblings said would likely be the case today. Anyhow, this song title inspired the idea:

  16. Is anyone here a chord cutter? What devices/services do you use. I've slowly moved to using more streaming than live TV and with my Firestick 4K, seems like I use that the most. I have Kodi and CinemaHD for movies, etc and have thought about subscribing to an IPTV service. SportsTV is like $20.00 a month, for example, but you lose the DVR capabilities that I depend on (Since I never watch live TV). SO I could save a shitload of money each year by dropping Dish (And no, I don;t get it free or any breaks on the pricing). I think I seen @SackMan518 post about using a Firestick, but who else and how the experience bben?
  17. Meat, Lit, Victor(lol yeah right), can we please have the :rockon emoticon back? Even if you guys never used it, it seemed it was by far the most popular emoticon on the Range for at least the last few years. The Range losing it was almost as sad as Daryl quitting drinking very recently. I probably won't lobby against the latter, but Daryl was one of the biggest :rockon fans, and he could use you to rally around him and help with an item of comfort in this stage of transition for him. I could too. Help?
