One of the books Mad-Hatter donated for the mass release on 17th April, but I decided to read it first, and then my partner wanted to read it, and now a friend wants to read it... So it may not have been released into the wild, but it's getting a wide circulation nonetheless :-)

Quite an interesting book (although at times with the predictable smugness of any actor's autobiography). Kelsey Grammer certainly had a tough start to life, and some of the stories he told of his early career should inspire other struggling actors to keep struggling. I lost interest in the story once he became famous, but it's a short enough book (big writing and wide margins!) that I didn't have to stay bored for too long.

Most notable feature of this book is the cover - I've never before seen an author's photo where it looks like they've wet themselves! :lol:

Why is it that i always get confused between Peter Cushing and Christopher Plummer? I have watched numerous of films starring said actors and I know that at least one of the actors mentioned is (now late) veteran of many a Hammer horror film ... BOOOO ... ha ... bet that scared you. And i know that using "And" at the beginning of sentences is a very bad thing to do (thank you Mrs Francis for instilling a vast amount of guilt into me over the usage of "And" at such a tender age of ). But, where was i? Oh yeah, and Christopher Plummer played that smug bloke in the Sound of Muzac. Anyway meandering my way ever onwards ... whenever i don't think about neither i seem to get their names mixed up. Christopher Plummer seems to become Peter Cushing and Peter Cushing, Christopher Plummer. See ... it is confusing isn't it? Anyway, no more shall i wake up in the middle of the night in a precocious sweat dwelling on whether Peter Cushing is Christopher Plummer or Christopher Plummer is Peter Cushing and vice versa. All thanks to Kelsey Grammer and his strangely mispelt surname. Yes dear listener you can NOW read about how Kelsey Grammer (say it 75 times and you will gibber like the WWF wrestler The Rock) picked up Christopher Plummer and his strangely mispelt surname (deja vu??) and threw it and him off a stage in the middle of a production of Othello ... which in the words of Alexander The Great (of 25 Thrombosis Gardens, Dagenham, Kent) is "bloody ace and better than watching ten years of that bloody Frasier crap. Discuss."
Otherwise its a quick read, interesting to a point but not greatly world shaking or profound ... so there.

Please pay attention. Note the dates on this entry and the previous one. Yes, I haf an IQ of 356!!! Und a reading sped of two chickens fused together by... a complex method of fusion which only i understand because of the aforementioned IQ score. however, I am wearing a lab coat, and I own one clip board- well, I nicked it. But no-one knows this, so, shhh!

I'll read it after I've released it. that's a promise. And mother wouldn't like me breaking a promise. Knives in the Shower at twenty paces.

Released on Monday, May 05, 2003 at Ngaio Marsh Theatre, University of Canterbury in Christchurch, Canterbury New Zealand.

Set free in the Green room of the Ngaio Marsh Theatre during rehearsals. I cleverly disguised the book as a short gentleman in a trenchcoat who had wet his trousers and was shy - that always gets the birds. Was last seen in the hands of a partridge in a pear tree. (Real names have not been used to protect the innocent.)

I have still to read this book, but will tell you what I think when I have. It's about some actor - I think he's Mozambiquan by his tan - and how a rich uncle set him up for life by leaving a huge banana plantation to his sister and her four dogs, Walter, Genevieve and Brian Trudeau - and Platapus Eggs. Mustn't forget him.

Well known for its African music and shots of African savannahs.

I can't believe I gave away a perfectly good book!!!! And one I hadn't read!!!! Oh well, it's gone to another poor actor, so... I suppose.... in a way... I wonder if it's still there! If not, I'll know who picked it up - it'll be the one pushing people off stage.

Stay tuned 'til next time, when Waldorf Salad will say, "Hands off my walnuts!"
