It seems tha everything is connected. I've just read that Outlander was inspired by a character in Doctor Who. That has to be "Jamie", a young highlander who became a companion of Patrick Troughton's Doctor and was my favourite when I was eight.
Jamie was one of the best companions ever. I didn´t know this :)

I got first two episodes of "Intruders" so I am going to watch it tonight (with a proper atmosphere). I am curious to hear John Simm with an American accent :D

It's really nice to know that there is still a chance of maintaining a normal (albeit still quite one-sided) friendship even after the obsessed phase ends. ;)

Sort of the opposite for me, though I've never been the crush type of fan, but I do love "lived in" faces and men in the 40 - 60 range.  I'll be glad to have the hair back and the hint of stubble, but the laugh lines are very definitely what I think makes him most handsome so with or without hair, he's doing just fine 8-).


For me the looks have always been a bonus. I completely LIKE this man - he uses his brain and he has a personality that really appeals to me, and then he just happens to be a really good actor/singer/dancer... there are too many idiots, talented idiots at that, in showbiz, so Hugh makes a nice change. *sits back in cloud of shmaltzy thoughts*
I agree.  Knowing just a little bit of him as a person keeps me on board.  He is one of a kind and I can't wait to see him perform on stage again and feel that charisma.

But I can also understand the relief of not being a slave to an obsession.  If you're no longer in love, I'm sure you'll still find enjoyment in just being friends  wombat :)

Maybe it's the baldness, the dyed black beard, the no-longer-straight nose or maybe just because of my increasing age, but he no longer sets my heart a-flutter. I'm still interested to see what he does but I'm no longer obsessed. About time!

If you consider how many make a fuss now because of his beard and baldness and act like some twelve-year-olds with their continuing moaning and calling for hair and a shave, it will be interesting how many of his female fans remain fans when he ages and turns more gray and goes balder. ::)

In an opinion piece defending Sofia Vergara and that bit at the Emmys:


Would we be having this discussion if Hugh Jackman had been displayed shirtless on that rotating pedestal? I think not.


Maybe not the same exact discussion. But yes, yes, I do believe it would have triggered some sort of discussion!

I saw this article in a few places yesterday and didn't post it because Hugh aging is not a popular topic, lol. He ranked 5th on some list of actors who are "aging gracefully". But this one caught my eye because of the quote about baldness aging a man's appearance - something I think we'll vouch for after this summer. And also, could they have found a less attractive photo of George Clooney. Geez.

Asked about what made these stars so attractive despite their age, Asim added: ''What is striking about the survey is that every single MAG (Man Ageing Gracefully) has a full head of hair... [the] survey shows that baldness can age a man by as much as 10 years.''

Kristin: Try going into your bookmarks, go to the bar atop the list of threads and on the right side, click on "select" and choose "all" and then click "action" and choose "mark all read" and see if that makes it go away b Apr 27, 2013 4:33:03 GMT -5
narrows101: Yep, tried all of that and it won't go away. Funny thing is, it happened once before and it just disappeared one day so maybe it will happen again at some point! Just annoying seeing it. Thanks for the suggestions. Apr 27, 2013 6:21:47 GMT -5
Wolvietat: The Habs Hugh? The Habs? *sigh* May 2, 2013 21:28:27 GMT -5
Kristin: I know! But then again, those tix were probably comped, so you go with the flow. May 3, 2013 14:03:35 GMT -5
narrows101: I just want you to know that I FINALLLY got rid of that "1" hovering over the "bookmark" word on the toolbar. I went into "profile" then "edit profile" and unchecked everything to see if it went away and it did. Then I checked everything one by one. Sept 19, 2013 20:35:27 GMT -5
narrows101: After "edit profile" and then "notifications" I unchecked everything and checked again. The culprit was "Forum" - "when a bookmark is update" - took that checkmark off and the "1" went away. Checked it again and it came back. So that was it. No idea why. Sept 19, 2013 20:37:35 GMT -5
ocycd: can anyone tell me why the photo I had for my avatar suddenly disappeared?? Sorry, I'm kind of a dunce when it comes to these things! Sept 21, 2013 15:14:33 GMT -5
narrows101: ocycd - I still see your avatar. Sept 22, 2013 9:24:14 GMT -5
Kristin: Ocycd - It's probably an issue on your end, with graphics not loading properly, because I can see your avatar too. Unless you can see everyone else's avatar and not yours, then I'll have to figure out why that's happening. Sept 22, 2013 20:37:44 GMT -5
Kristin: Pat - Awesome! It was bothering me that I couldn't figure that one out. Sept 22, 2013 20:38:07 GMT -5
ocycd: That is so weird cuz I can see everyone else's avatars but still not mine... and the same is true on my mac and my pc laptop... very strange. Maybe I'll try reloading it on my laptop next time I'm on it... thanks narrows101 and Kristin!! Sept 23, 2013 16:22:48 GMT -5
ocycd: My avatar is BACK! And I didn't do a thing... thank you magic virtual wizards!! Sept 27, 2013 15:01:45 GMT -5
24601: Kristin, what do you see below my avatar? Nov 19, 2013 22:53:12 GMT -5
nmb: :) Dec 12, 2013 18:42:47 GMT -5
24601: This is an absurd question. How does one post a new freestanding post within a thread? Using Reply button is all I know and more often than not becomes tedious, repetitive, bandwidth sucking reading. Feb 23, 2014 15:13:32 GMT -5
Kristin: You can't. You can only reply to threads or create a new thread. You can use the quick reply to just post something without responding to anyone in a thread, or quoting someone, but as far as just posting in a thread, you have to use the reply button. Mar 21, 2014 13:25:23 GMT -5
frances: The hair is one thing but I wish we had more opportunity to see that face without the beard. May 6, 2014 12:07:05 GMT -5
SueFB: Does anybody ever pay attention to this place here? Aug 11, 2014 15:24:05 GMT -5
Kristin: I forget it's here most of the time. Aug 12, 2014 6:59:17 GMT -5
SueFB: Yeah, me, too. I wonder what it's really intended for. For random comments that don't belong anywhere? I guess. Aug 13, 2014 8:12:31 GMT -5
