Born April 8, 1973

Emma Caulfield, playing Anya on Buffy the Vampire Slayer was just one of the many reasons that I loved that show. SHe was the humor, the passion, and part of the Scooby Gang – or at least Scooby adjacent. For the noteworthy, I would like to present some of my favorite quotes from Anya on BtVS.

Anya Quotes

  • Why can’t you just masturbate like the rest of us?
  • I know you like me. I’ve seen you looking at my breasts.
  • And frankly, it’s ludicrous to have these interlocking bodies and not… interlock.
  • I promise to love you, to cherish you, to honor you, uh, not to obey you, of course, because that’s anachronistic and misogynistic and who do you think you are, like a sea captain or something?
  • I mean, I for one didn’t want to start my day with a slaughter.
  • I don’t understand how this all happens. How we go through this. I mean, I knew her, and then she’s, there’s just a body, and I don’t understand why she just can’t get back in it and not be dead anymore! It’s stupid! It’s mortal and stupid! And, and Xander’s crying and not talking, and, and I was having fruit punch, and I thought, well Joyce will never have any more fruit punch, ever, and she’ll never have eggs, or yawn or brush her hair, not ever, and no one will explain to me why.

There’s no adventure in knowing the outcome of who you’re supposed to be with.

Like a C5 Like a C5 Rocket

On this day, 1962, NASA made a big announcement. They said they were gonna rocket it Like a C5 Like a C5 Rocket. Ok, forgive my bit of punniness, but I am and always have been a fan of the US Space Agency, NASA. In 1962 they did announce that they were going to create...

Robert Downey Jr

Born April 4, 1965

Robert Downey Jr (RDJ from here on out) has become much more of an actor than in the 2.0 version of his career than he was during the original version. I don’t think that he is necessarily a better actor but I think he has allowed himself to be a more consciously good person and that has come throughin his work. Below is a very limited take on some of my favs of RDJ.

Noteworthy

I think that we all do heroic things, but hero is not a noun, it’s a verb.

Cobie Smulders

Cobie Smulders

Cobie Smulders

Born April 3, 1982

Cobie Smulders is a comedic genius. Impeccable timing, great delivery and able to hold her own with heavyweights like Neil Patrick Harris and Jason Segel. Did I mention she is the head of SHIELD in the MCU as well?

Noteworthy

  • How I Met Your Mother – Smulders was so incredible on this show. HIMYM was one of those shows that the ensemble was perfect and worked so well together that you could not have removed any of them. Smulders ability to step back in time as an 80s singing sensation proves her acting and comedic chops.
  • The Avengers  – Captain America: Winter SoldierAvengers: Age of UltronAgents of SHIELD – Smulders stepped onto the deck of a SHIELD Helicarrier in the MCU. Then she took over leading SHIELD when Nick Fury stepped aside. Smulders is versatile as hell.

I am learning that in life it is OK to travel in darkness, not knowing what your next move is.

-Cobie Smulders

Clark Gregg

Clark Gregg

Clark Gregg

Born April 2, 1962

Clark Greg first sauntered onto the small screen for me as Richard on The New Adventures of Old Christine. Sinc that time, he has taken a much bigger role in our geeky universe playing the ever-recurring role of Agent Coulson in the MCU.

Noteworthy

  • Agent Phil Coulson – Iron ManIron Man 2ThorThe AvengersAgents of SHIELDCaptain Marvel – Agent Coulson was the lynchpin for the first part of the MCU. He had small roles in some that allowed him to create this connection that worked. After meeting the character in Iron Man, we developed a relationship with this character and only Gregg could have created that connection.
  • The West Wing – Not for nothing, but he was an FBI agent on The West Wing, one of my favorite political dramas.
  • The New Adventures of Old Christine – Gregg played Richard versus Julia Louis-Dreyfus’s Christine. he was her ex but he was still a huge part of her life. Such terrific chemistry.

‘The Avengers’ is exciting on the level ‘The Matrix’ or ‘Indiana Jones’ was when I was kid. I think it will be timeless.

-Clark Gregg

Linda Blair - Born January 22, 1959 An icon of the horror genre, Linda Blair Exorcisms Original Bad Girl, will always be tied to The Exorcist from 1973. This movie set her in the limelight but I am not sure that it actually did her any favors. Noteworthy The Exorcist...

Christopher Walken

Christopher Walken

Christopher Walken

Born March 31, 1943

Christopher Walken is one of those actors that you look for in a movie, that you hope will pop up in a cameo for no good reason. Walken improves any film he makes an appearance in. His quirky nature, his odd delivery of lines makes him stand out from the crowd. Below are some of my favorite Christopher Walken movies. This is a short list and I have left off some obvious flicks.

Noteworthy

  • A View to a Kill – Walken is the bad guy in this Bond film that was the last in the line for Roger Moore. Walken and Grace Jones team up to take on Bond and he is a passable Bond villain. I include this movie because this might be the first thing that I remember seeing Walken in.
  • Pulp Fiction – As I said above, Walken kicks Pulp Fiction up to an even higher level. His scene with a young Butch, explaining that he carried Butch’s father’s watch in his ass is one of my favorite scenes in cinematic history.
  • The Prophecy – This is a lesser known Christopher Walken movie. He plays the angel Gabriel and in this movie, Gabriel is the bad guy.
  • Joe Dirt – Another of my favorite Christopher Walken roles. His casting as Clem, the gangster, turned school janitor on the run from the mob was perfect casting.

There are people who are able to plan their career, their future, but I’ve never had any talent for that. I just do things and hope for the best. Say yes, take a chance, and sometimes it’s terrific and sometimes it’s not.
