Writer's Block: My name's Forrest, Forrest Gump

What’s your favorite Tom Hanks movie or character, and why?

Actually, I've never seen Forrest. And I don't think that's such a bad thing. I've never had to put Tom Hanks into the "Tom Cruise Categeory", and that's a really good thing. 'What's that?' you say. The "Tom Cruise Category" is where you take an abominably bad actor (in my case, Tom Cruise) who plays only characters that are extensions of themselves, and you can't help but see the actor and not the character they're portraying - in every movie you watch them in! Al Pacino has fallen into the Tom Cruise Category. So has Jack Nicolson and Robert De Niro. It's kind of like the term "Jumping the Shark" because once you know an actor has gotten to that point, there's no turning back...

What’s your favorite Tom Hanks movie or character, and why?

"That Thing You Do" is my all-time favorite movie of all time, ever.. so naturally, I guess I'm bound to say Mr. White from That Thing You Do; however, a very, very close second would be his role in "Catch Me If You Can", another top 10 movie of mine. <3 Tom Hanks is tres amazing. :)

Вопрос дня: Ужасный начальник

Who was the worst boss you’ve ever had? Did you ever get your revenge?

У меня самым плохим руководителем, был директор, на
последнем месте работы. Человек все вопросы управления замыкал на себе, что
стимулировало неудовольствие со стороны сотрудников «среднего звена», мстить я
считаю не стоит, ведь жизнь всегда сможет это сделать самостоятельно. Так что лучше
использовать метод: тебя обидели, дай конфетку, обидели еще раз дай еще одну
конфетку и так пока у того кто тебя обидел не начнется сахарный диабет..)

If you had to participate in an eating contest, what food would you pick to eat?


Weed brownies. Because, it would be really really intensely long due to the munchies begetting the delicious brownies. It would go on for hours until someone passes out or forgets what they are doing and wonders off to touch the silky promotion banners. The silly party about it all is that you would overdose on chocolate and not the marijuana.

What’s your favorite Tom Hanks movie or character, and why?

Tom has been in some great films and played some memorable Characters.  I loved Gump, Apollo 13,  A League of Their Own('there's no cryin in baseball!"), The Green Mile, Cast Away, Saving Private Ryan, and Charlie WIlson's War  to name some of my Favorites. But by far Andrew Beckett in Jonathan Demme's Philadelphia is his finest work. And it also produced one of the most heartfelt Oscar speeches ever to be uttered on an Academy Award soundstage...."the streets are heaven are too crowded with angels".

Writer's Block: My name's Forrest, Forrest Gump

What’s your favorite Tom Hanks movie or character, and why?

Even through all I've seen, I've always (and always will) loved him as Josh in Big. It was the first movie I saw him in, when I was four years old. He really had me convinced that he was a 13 year old in an adult body. It's still such a good film, with the FAO Schwartz piano dancing scene, the scene where he eats miniature corn like it is corn on the cob, and the line "suckers!"

My runners up are Philadelphia, Apollo 13, Sleepless in Seattle, and the Toy Story franchise.

My favorite Tom Hanks movie is Green Mile, it really has a good plot.

Then, Forrest Gump also, he did a GREAT acting there, wish he will do that kind of character in the future.

YEAH Tom Hanks is my most favorite actor!!!

Who was the worst boss you’ve ever had? Did you ever get your revenge?

Самым дэбильным был Кракович Валерий Аркадьевич!
Управляющий ФПТК Сантехмонтаж-62Ё
НО он был Дэбильным Начальником!
НО
он был неплохим человеком!
Уогда-то думал его пристрелить их "САЙГИ" - стрелок я не плохой,
потом ОСОЗНАЛ, что это не его вина, а просто ЖИДОВСКАЯ игра!
Не игра ЕВРЕЕВ! среди них, неплохой- даже отличный мой начальник!
Его родственники в ИЗРАИЛЕ - Гольдин Борис Ефимович! - прекрасной души человек!
Если бы не сломал ногу и не погиб в озере (утонул),
мы были взаимопонимаемы!
ЕМУ - мстить - дэбилизм!
Мстить Краковичу Валерию Аркадьевичу - дурость! ИМХО!

Не умею мстить, умею не замечать идиЁтов!
 

Writer's Block: My name's Forrest, Forrest Gump

What’s your favorite Tom Hanks movie or character, and why?

Tom Hanks has been in so many great movies it's hard to pick just one, but I really liked his performance in The Green Mile. He had such an emotional range in that movie. His character could go from being a tough prisoner-bashing badass to being visibly conflicted about his job, especially near the end when he has to execute John Kauffey. And the speech he gives at the end about how we're all walking our own Green Mile is amazing.

What’s your favorite Tom Hanks movie or character, and why?

I'm not sure what it might've been but I remember watching "Big" once and there's the farewell scene, which was very memorable. If you could count voice-acting, I might say "Toy Story" because I grew up with that. Or "Catch Me If You Can", although Leo DiCaprio was the protagonist and he was but the 2nd lead (still rather important, I guess).

Ultimately, it has to be "The Terminal". I've watched it twice and to me, it's really heart-warming.

Tom Hanks is amazing. I wish I got the opportunity to tell him to that in person when he was at our sunny island. :)

"I'm only sleeping". Хорошая несложная мелодия, которую легко запомнить и напевать, близкий мне текст, плюс незаигранность самой песни - в отличии от практически всего остального репертуара той поры.

Конечно же Форрест Гамп. Трогательная, грубая, злая, реальная и такая тонкая история... Том просто не вероятно её сыграл. Об этом фильме сказано много, но как дополнение скажу, что когда я расстался со своей девушкой, я захотел как-то прийти в себя и включил этот фильм... И я не мог его смотреть, потому что он начал меня задевать, за те струны которые мне час назад пытались порвать... Настолько глубоко воспринимается этот фильм.

Вопрос дня: My name's Forrest, Forrest Gump

What’s your favorite Tom Hanks movie or character, and why?

Сегодня 9 июля Том Хенкс отмечает свой 55-летний день рождение. Хочется поздравить любимого актера с юбилеем и пожелать ему и в дальнейшем радовать зрителей яркими запоминающимися образами, такими как в фильмах: "Изгой", "Зеленая миля", "Форрест Гамп", "Большой" и т.д. Во всех своих сыгранных ролях Том Хенкс очень убедителен, предельно откровенен, эмоционально открыт и трогательно по- человечески притягателен. В одном из любимых фильмов "Изгой" весь сюжет фильма построен на игре этого актера. Фильм держит в напряжении, не дает ни на минуту расслабиться отойти от этой истории о выживании на необитаемом острове современного человека.  Смотришь,  переживаешь вместе с героем все происходящие с ним перипетии и веришь, что судьба ему улыбнется, и придет спасение...

Probably Jim Lovell/ Apollo 13.  Love the whole Space thing, and the way everyone works together to save the Apollo 13 astronauts.  It's even more amazing after having visited the Johnson Space Centre, it really drives the realism home. Plus the movie itself was very well written and superbly acted, a really moving human drama.

Yikes. Next to long-haul trucking, this would be a better than capital punishment for me. Variety is nice in foods...

Before watching Man versus Food, my response to this question would have been ice cream. It's soft and it goes down quickly. However, having seen almost every dairy challenge fail, my guess is that ice cream would be right out.

So, I'll go with sushi. Probably too many carbs for someone like me who doesn't eat competitively. But it is clean and light and you can spice it up with wasabi whenever the going gets rough.

Writer's Block: Horrible bosses

Who was the worst boss you’ve ever had? Did you ever get your revenge?

Oooh! F'g rant time!


When i was working as a lab attendant / technician at a community college's academic computing lab, one of my superordinates (i'll not call him a superior) showed me an impossibly huge file (4 gigs on a 300 meg drive) and ‘asked’ what he should do about it. I suggested that he exclude it from backups and leave it alone (as deleting such a file can lead to marking arbitrary, possibly otherwise used, disk space as available). He promptly deleted it. I shrugged and walked away—realising fairly quickly that it was a deliberate demonstration that my opinion meant nothing to him, and that he would have done the opposite of whatever i recommended. (He may have even created the bogus directory entry for use as a prop.)

A more evil stunt—as it affected the execution of the department's purpose of teaching people to use computers in the professional world—was crippling the Macs, by amputating MultiFinder (the optional component in the then-current version 6 of the OS that allowed running more than one application at a time). He said that it confused students. Never mind that the students were going to encounter it in the real world, and therefore needed to learn not to be confused by it. Conveniently he—a self-confessed “IBM man”—couldn't do that to MS-Windows.


Much more recently, whilst working as the 3rd-shift material jockey in the boarding department at a sock mill, the straw-boss actively ran interference on my work. I didn't realise it at first. I dismissed getting unexpectedly behind as things just going poorly. (Though on the occasions that i filled in on 1st-shift—by all accounts a tougher gig—things always went remarkably well.)

Then one day—on the line of machines that i had the most trouble with work unexpectedly running out—i discovered one of the empty sock buggies parked in a position in which normally only loaded buggies are parked. At that point i figured that the boarder (the person who pulls the socks onto the forms to get dried flat) had put it there, not thinking that it might confuse things. And i considered that this sort of thing might have been part of my problem with that line.

Then, on a later occasion, i went to fetch work for two adjacent machines that were running the same stuff and close to running out. They were about neck and neck per supply, and both running about the same speed. When i returned a few minutes later, one was completely out, and the other still had about what i'd left him with. I became suspicious.

Later—possibly the same night—i was rolling some work onto the floor right as straw-boss was parking a buggy at a far machine. He parked it in a manner that made it look like the second to last buggy of a 3 buggy batch, and as he walked back he noticed me, and avoided eye contact. After deploying the current load, i looked at that buggy to find that it hardly had anything in it. At that point all doubt vanished from my mind that he was deliberately staging things to trick me into thinking that machines had more work than they actually did.

As if this wasn't enough, an occasion arose when we were waiting for some black size 10 heel & toe for some machines that were running low. One floor below (accessed by an elevator comprising a large platform atop a huge pneumatic piston, capable of lifting about a tonne or so of damp socks) the area where the work coming out of the dye-house is parked had two runs of black tube socks, surrounded by nothing but white and grey. I further surveyed the areas that normally only hold out-work (socks dyed for other mills, and awaiting shipping) to find no black socks of any sort. After returning a couple of times without the needed goods, straw-boss goes down there, then returns to tell me that they're there. So down i go again, to find the same as before. Upon reporting this, he goes down again, and returns to tell me that he put them by the elevator door, “right where you can find 'em” (as he put it, in about the most supercilious, derisive tone imaginable). I go down; there they are. As i load them, i look the floor over, to see nothing different—including the aforementioned two runs of black tube socks. That fucking bastard had hidden that run in some extra-obscure location where i was expected never to go.

I still don't know what his trip was. Obviously he disliked me; but why is unclear. Maybe he felt threatened by my competence, so did things to make me look bad, to make sure that i didn't end up stealing his job (which consisted mostly of sitting on his ass in the office, reading the paper and watching the grunts do all the real work—the epitome of the expression ‘straw-boss’ (i.e. not much more than a scarecrow)).


Thankfully, i've had some bosses who were not flaming gaping assholes (an expression i picked up from one of my college profs). The 1st-shift (and department) supervisor at that same mill, for example. He's the kind who is out there on the floor, striving to keep the show running smoothly.

Anyway. This post is very long, and i can use a beer.

If I had to participate in an eating contest, it would have to be pizza.  When I first moved here to the Mary Bryant Home, a group of ladies called the Zonta Club came to the Mary Bryant Home to give us a pizza party.  I ate thirteen slices of pizza that day, and there aren't too many people who actually believe me that I did this.

If you had to participate in an eating contest, what food would you pick to eat?

I'd have a big plate of nothing. In a world where people are malnourished even in the most wealthy countries and dying by the thousands in the poorest, an eating contest is a show of privilege, amorality, wastefulness, arrogance and indicative of all the finer sensibilities of a cinderblock.

It is so obscene in the wider context that it staggers the imagination, and that such an activity has been upgraded to a 'sport' is as uncivilized as dog fights or bear baiting.

truthfully, my days of gluttony are over. It's a punishment to overeat. i still have a fat ass, but I am old and entitled. It is paid for and the only way I have have found that you CAN take it with you! Gosh, even buffets hold little allure. If I can choke my way through two plates of food, it would be a lot. I like breakfast buffet because there are fruits and fancy meats I usually don't get, and chinese and mexican buffet too, but I am selective. I'd rather just be served a nice plate of food and relax over my meal, not queue up with the herd in line.

I'm getting old.

I would rather be a vampire, as long as it's not a sparklepire. I want to be all badass like the good old days of vampires. I think I would just straight up be evil for a while. And then when that get's old I'll just watch the world grow. I love history and I think that with immortality you would be able to live through so many historical events your head would explode! But in a good way.

If you had to participate in an eating contest, what food would you pick to eat?

If I had to...like at gunpoint?  Or to benefit a charity?  Those are probably the only two conditions under which you would find me stuffing my throat with food stuffs in a competitive atmosphere although it would have to be a lot of money for a charity.  5 lbs blackberries?  Fruit seems to be one of the few foods I can really eat with excess, so we'll have to go with that.

The concept of eating contests is off-putting to me considering how many people in the world are starving.  Only in a free capitalist society would we waste it in such a gluttonous fashion. 

I feel so strongly about this because I grew up American poor and there were times when I was hungry and did not have enough to eat.  I don't think everyone in this country really knows what it is like to be hungry, which is why people ridicule the Food Stamp program so much.  As a kid, I picked through garbage cans for food at my elementary school.  One day, I had a soft pretzel in hand over a garbage bin when another girl spotted me looking at it.  I dropped it quickly and walked away.  She never said anything.  Eventually, the free school lunch programs came out, which I often qualified for.  Now, there is free breakfast too, which is great.

I think we have to change the way we think about food in this country.  By and large, it has huge entertainment value.  Like shiny electronics, it has to dazzle us, impress our friends, and throttle our bodily systems.  Nourishment is the real reason we eat and eating contests don't fit into that model.  Eating any other way is harmful and we pay the price with disease.

If you had to participate in an eating contest, what food would you pick to eat?


Well, it would have to be something that I enjoy eating (but not something that I wouldn't want to end up being sick of and put off for life), and something that is easy to eat and that I can eat quickly, so I'm going to say pizza since I can usually get through this quite fast - often too fast for my own liking, really.

So yes, I reckon I could win at a pizza eating contest.

Так вот муженек ее прикупил ей бизнес и сделал руководителем-главным бухгалтером. Сама то она не семи пядей во лбу была, вот и показывала свой характер, как только могла. С утра придет, проверит все ли карандаши на твоем рабочем месте наточены, в журнале передачи смен, где мы с девчонками писали всю удобную для нас информацию, перечитав все и перепроверив, требовала изменить сокращенное "Пт" на " пятница", а то мол никому не понятно. Постиранные занавески в холле могла заставлять перевешивать по 10 раз, мол криво висят. Обход номеров (забыла сказать, что работала я все-таки в гостинице) не принимала без замечаний, и гоняла тебя по этажам, пока не найдешь какой-либо деффект. Кроме того, зарплаты было не выпросить, после окончания смены (а работали мы сутками) можно было сидеть до обеда, и ждать милости, а спать хотелось неимоверно! Благо я оттуда быстренько свинтила. Но людей они обманывали (вместе со своим мужем ( тоже директором))))). Могли повесить несуществующие недостачи на горничных, не выплатить з/п, доводили людей до нервного срыва, те уходили, соответсвтенно ничего не получив, не отдавали трудовые.
Со стороны мести-некоторые уходили, высказав в лицо все что о них думали, используя всю прелесть нашего могучего. Со своей же стороны, видя изнутри такое положение дел, я наксерила различных документов этой шарашкиной конторы и положила к себе в папочку. Это я сделала на случай того, если меня обманут, то есть что предъявить. И им, и суду. Вот. Но меня, слава богу, не обманули, хотя расчет я получила месяца через полтора, и то, благодаря своей настойчивости. Так что папочка не пригодилась. А вообще с такими людьми надо бороться их же методами. Такие люди в психологии носят название манипуляторов-агрессоров. Как однажды начальница сказала: я давлю только тех людей, которые слабее меня. Просто не сдаваться, просто держать оборону. В свое статье я позже опубликую о борьбе с манипуляторами.

Writer's Block: Stomach pains

If you had to participate in an eating contest, what food would you pick to eat?


I've been in an eating contest before and won, and I'd definitely choose the same food that I ate then - chocolate cake. No matter how full I am, I can't turn away chocolate cake. Ergo, perfect eating contest food for me. It's impossible for me to lose if I literally cannot stop eating, haha!

Вопрос дня: My name's Forrest, Forrest Gump

"Большой" и "Филадельфия". После просмотра этих фильмов я поняла, что Том Хэнкс - лучший. Кто еще может сыграть две столь разноплановых роли одинако блестяще и совершенно? Его герои неизменно вызывают эмоции. Восхищение, драйв, безудержное желание сделать что-нибудь эдакое, безбашенное или сострадание, уважение, раздирающую боль - неважно.
Том талантлив, я его обожаю.

Я бы поучаствовал в поедании мясных тефтелек, перемежая их ломтиками огурца и запивая вишнёвым соком. Не победить, так хоть поужинать :).
