      Shplendid! Did you draw that? It's a work of art.
    • Birdleson
      Birdleson
      No, I just pulled it. Not so hard. Basically it's a drawing of a photo. I teach art; I could show you how to do that. It's copying. Simple.

      Love that one, Birdleson. I've long been haunted by what some Fleming inspired black and white 60s Bond films would've looked like if Burton had starred in them. He seemed like he could've handled the weight of a character like Bond and could convincingly convey a certain kind of soul erosion from the spy job as he did in "The Spy Who Came in From the Cold."

    Hey, thanks for getting the trivia game rolling.

    I'm busy on the 12th until 5pm, if you wanted to do an evening thing, but I could do the 13th or the 20th.

      I love this cover, thanks. Great early footage can be seen in the documentary that came out a few years back; LAMBER & STAMP.

    Just been listening to a documentary regarding Pete Townshend and his work on the '75 film, Tommy, in which he discussed his work in the editing suites with Terry Rawlings - he of GoldenEye fame. I must look into the relationship between Rawling's and Pete!

      Thanks, a connection between one of my all time favorite bands and my favorite character. I went into the theate in '74 an Elton John fan and emerged a Who fan.

    You had my interest in your remarks until you had to close by throwing an elbow, or cheap shot. DON'T TELL ME I'M BEING OVERLY SENSITIVE.
    You are being condensending (sp) and patronizing. I don't need that crap from you. Don't do that, I'm way too old for that. And I always considered you one of the more mature and level headed people on these discussions.

    I refuse to air this disagreement in public on the forum but I choose to discuss this with you on a more personal man to man level.

      OK I can see already that this user @Birdleson will lead to trouble; he must have a history of nasty comments already @OHMS69 includiung targetting me when I am only a new member. Let's leave it at that.
  • 0BradyM0Bondfanatic7
    However did you trap Mr. Burton inside your picture profile? That must have been hard going.

      Great profile picture. Pity this legend couldn't have appeared in a role in the Bond series at some point.

      Riley Martin. He died the day before last. He was a regular on the Howard Stern and Art Bell radio shows over the years. Claimed he was abducted by aliens. I never believed him but he was entertaining as Hell.

      Just noticed that all this time, Birdleson was using a profile picture of the legendary Bruce Murdock. That. Is. Rich.

      Not really a fan, but any American kid who knew anything about sports saw that movie in 1974 had to be thinking, as I was, that he was a ringer for Reggie Jackson. I haven't been able to watch that movie and not obsess on that since. I did a Google search of "Reggie Jackson The Man With The Golden Gun" and was glad to see that others had posted about thus same thing.

      REAL TIME WITH BILL MAHER, GOTHAM (but I do have to cringe at some of the dialogue), and THE SIMPSONS (it's gotten good again. And I can get into THE WALKING DEAD periodically. MAD MEN was good for about two seasons.

    Is that avatar doing anything for your affinity towards The Brozz?

      I see the avatar got machine gunned down as quickly as a Broz enemy. A worthy conclusion, perhaps.
