same thing the bitch did with my Oscar for The Way We Were
My name is Barbra
She did very, very well to hang onto the seat at all given the swing from Labour to Conservative in London, and she had a very small majority to start with, less than 500. \
She''s a very good local MP, and she is a very good backbencher: anti-war, and a thorn in the side of the front bench.
42 vote difference
If it would mean her return to acting, I''d be consoled.
Do you miss her, R4?
If she lost, they could do a reboot of "To The Manor Born" with Glenda playing a bitchy version of Penny Keith''s role. Of course they would have to advance the characters'' ages by a few decades.
Somewhat interestingly, she doesn''t live in the district she represents.
MPs don''t have to live in their districts? That does seem odd.
Tamsin Omond To The Commons?
"MPs don''t have to live in their districts? That does seem odd."\
They don''t. Glenda''s Conservative opponent tried to make an issue of it. She lives in London, but not in her district.
She''s still no Meryl Streep!
Glenda''s HEDDA on the tube! Try not to shoot all over the place!!
I don''t have anything against her, but it''s bullshit that an MP doesn''t have to live in the district they represent. How detached can one be?
Judi Dench lives there, if that helps.
The UK is going massively conservative.
Dodged a bullet there.
Maggie Smith, star of Downton Abbey
[quote]it''s bullshit that an MP doesn''t have to live in the district they represent. How detached can one be?\
Your congressperson''s winning campaign was most likely bought and paid for to the largest extent by corporate donors and influential lobbies who don''t live in your district or care about its interests.
R15, haven''t the Conservatives gone down in the polls since their win last year?
I love R17''s brutal analysis.
r16, Glenda would have triumphed in your role.
"Judi Dench lives there, if that helps."\
Did Dench vote for her?
Unless Dench was angling for a staging of WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE in her own home, she''d better have voted for her.
Love Glenda Jackson in ''A Touch of Class''--but even 40 years later--not at the expense of Barbra Streisand being denied the Best Actress Oscar for ''The Way We Were.'' Streisand was robbed.
Well - I am embarrassed. I thought this thread was about something completely different.
"I''m sorry. We''ve sold the last seat on that flight."%0D\
"That flight is never full."%0D\
"I''m sorry, sir. We had a group of nuns visiting the island. If you had only called us to make a reservation."%0D\
Glenda Jackson''s greatest line reading over:%0D\
"Press THAT in your book of memories."
Glenda''s not even in the top 10! Those stupid fuckers!
R40 I wouldn't call that a fierce pose, it's a very dramatic, but loving and gentle pose . I've always said, and it's probably true, that Judi Demch owes Glenda Jackson her movie career. If Glenda had not gone into politics, I'm sure she would have had her third go as Elizabeth I I. S in Love, she would have been M in all those James Bond pictures. I'm not putting Dame Judi down, it's just that holly weird is shallow and Glenda was the first and be
Be led= beloved
"Glenda doing an intro for The Devils, on Bravo, when Bravo was a channel about culture, apparently."
Yes, that was a long time ago - this intro must be from the 80's or early 90's. I have to wonder if Bravo made cuts in the film for broadcast since there are some very grotesque and gory images in it (it got an "X" rating when first released in 1970).
Glenda with Bette - the two screen acting titans of the 20th century:
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
