Who should play the next Doctor? Nominations needed!

lardheppus

While the Doctor is something of a British institution, in order to appeal to a broader audience, isn't it time for an American to play the role? With that in mind, may I nominate Danny DeVito. That's assuming he isn't busy playing the lead role in the American remake of "The Long Good Friday",

Re: Why is it......

I was thinking the same thing, and wondering why the high frequency drivers weren't located outside the mid/bass units. At least that would provide a little more separation in the frequencies where it matters most.

The other option would be to drop one of the tweeters, move the other to the middle, stand them on end, and use them in pairs as a D'appolito arrays.

Democratic congresswomen 'less feminine in appearance' than Republicans

GOP femininity

Why am I not surprised that GOP men are more feminine. Look at Mitt, he wears mom jeans. Then there's Lindsey Graham, if he were to marry the representative from PA-14, and take his surname, he'd be Lindsey Doyle. Say it three times quickly

While having this on one's resume might be an impediment in most circumstances, it might be a positive boon if one's future employer is also a practitioner of ritual territory marking. One suspect the gentleman in question would fit right in with the IT department of Thomas Kincaid galleries.

According to the Sun...

...they weigh almost four stone and are growing at a rate of an inch a month. One wonders if that's radius, diameter, or circumference. I was going to ask the IT angle, but computer modeling is definitely needed to predict how soon it'll be before their gravitational field exceeds that of the Earth.

Rather than moistening the upholstery and carpeting, wouldn't it be easier to use the airsick bags , then hand them to the cabin attendant?

US in The Long Good Friday remake outrage

lardheppus

View from across the pond

I'm a 50 year old american (lower case to avoid offending British sensibilities) and I enjoyed The Long Good Friday about a quarter century ago, so the stereotypes as to who's seen it aren't quite accurate. I don't recall having any difficulty with the accents, so subtitles aren't required for all americans. When I worked at a theatre that specialized in foreign films, we used to joke that we should provide tape to the customers so their lips wouldn't get tired.

I share the concerns of the others who have commented that the film will be dumbed down so teens in the US (a notoriously thick lot) won't have to think, an activity they seem to have an aversion to. That and camera angles have to be changed every ten seconds to accomodate the attention span of the average USian.

I fully expect the remake to be a debacle, as I've heard the remake of The Wicker Man was. I think I'll watch the original again.
