The Boxer

This was unexpected

Forgive me if I seem a bit vague but I am currently suffering from lack of sleep and cold medicine so I’m a bit foggy on this but there was a video of Kevin reciting a poem in a museum in Rome in front of some glass doors while a few tourists walked behind him which lead to some speculation as to what the heck was going on but the author of the poem has released an official video that must have been filmed at a different time. I guess.

Spacey Birthday 2019

Time flies

It occurred to me a little while ago that today is Kevin’s birthday. He is 60 years old now. He was days away from his 40th birthday when I saw him in The Iceman Cometh in NYC. In other circumstances his fans would have planned something as a gift and I’d have sent him a funny old age card from his #1 fan KevieBear, who as everyone knows shares the same birthday and whose dream was to get a birthday greeting from his idol.  

Birthday wishes to Kevin Spacey and KevieBear.

July 2019

I’m still here.

I never switched to the free plan as I said was going to because it was too much trouble so I paid up for one more year and left the site to fend for itself in 2019. I made a very stressful long-distance move about 5 months ago and it hasn’t gone as well as I had hoped so far and I didn’t want to add to pressure of that by deleting years of work on the site and since the site does still get visitors (and not just email spammers) I decided to just leave it here for the year. This is only the third time I’ve checked the stats page since February and I have discovered some changes have been made to the program I use. I’m not sure the email link still works at this point.

About me: I had bought what was needed to take watercolor classes before my father got sick and then took all of it to Goodwill when we were trying to downsize all of our stuff before we moved and I decided to just focus on my higher end crochet supplies and then my crojo got lost in the move. Crocheters would know what means. So with the crojo missing I decided to try watercolor painting again and had to go out and re-purchase all the supplies I had left behind and had to buy most of it online because this area is lacking in art supplies and stores that sell them. Hopefully this will perk me right up.

About Kevin Spacey: The criminal charges and civil case against Kevin in Massachusetts have both been dropped. What this means for Kevin in the future, I don’t know. Authorities in the UK have apparently been interviewing him according to the news.

 

Changes

After Christmas

The site will be reverting back to a “free” design rather than the paid premium design it is now. I’m not sure what the site will look like or what will still be working afterwards. I still haven’t been able to make up my mind which way to go as far as wrapping it up in the new year or waiting a bit longer to decide but don’t want to pay for it to just sit here not being seen very much.

**There should not be any noticeable changes until January 26.

A request

Kevin Spacey is not affiliated with this web site.

I highly doubt he spends his free time reading anything on this web site. It is purely fan owned and operated. By me. So when you call him names in the comments section, he is not reading that. I am. And it is bad enough knowing that I am probably going to be ending this site soon and all my years of work are going to go poof and like that, be gone, because of someone else’s actions. But I don’t want to read the name calling. So any comment that includes that will be deleted. If you really feel the need to express yourself in that way, please feel free to say it to me in an email. You don’t have to post it for all the world to see. Or more specifically for the 4 people per day who still wander by. We all know what has been in the news for the past 10 months. Frankly, if you have a problem with the existence of my site, perhaps you shouldn’t be looking at it.

And if you think I shouldn’t be “promoting him” with my rare news posts, perhaps you’d prefer to see what I am going to be crocheting once the kit arrives in the mail. It’s the Scheepjes CAL (that stands for crochet along) 2017. Yes, yes, I know it’s almost 2019 but I’m a yarn rebel and I got a discount on the kit.

The 2017 Scheepjes CAL was a 14 week CAL called Hygge which is pronounced hooga and I am going to be doing the special limited edition Hygge called Danish Mermaid. It is technically a rectangular shawl but I plan to turn it into a wall hanging.

BBC Box Office

Box office numbers

Billionaire Boys Club opened in what can only be called an extremely limited release to even worse box office numbers. Last I read it was a $500 weekend total. I would assume they released it to the number of theaters necessary for awards season consideration for the technical side of the film. I don’t know if this movie would have generated much interest even if it had it been released last year before everything happened but there you go. Sad numbers for the sad end to a mostly brilliant career.

Spacey Birthdays 2018

Birthdays 2018

As always I wish Kevin Spacey a happy birthday and best wishes for the coming year, wherever he is. I do miss the days past when I would have sent him a lovely card from the fans on the site and a funny old age card from his number one fan KevieBear who coincidentally shares this birthday with him. The following is the letter that KBear wrote to him in 2011 that I must have forgotten to mail for some reason:

July 2011
Hi Kev!

Sorry it’s been so long since I have written to you but my assistant keeps telling me that she isn’t available for dictation. I have been forced to handle my own mail, if you can believe that. What is the world coming to?

How have you been? I was a little worried when I saw that you have been working so hard on your new play that you have developed a limp and that in the true spirit of the theatre, which as you know I share with you, that you go on stage every night limping even during the performance!

I hope you see a doctor soon or you might develop a hump.

Do you need an understudy??

I’m sure my assistant would be glad to mail me to London to help out.

For the past few years I have been working on my new book about you between naps. It has taken a lot out of me. My plan was to write a totally accurate biography of sorts from your humble beginnings to your showbiz greatness, but somehow it keeps turning into a book about me.

I am almost halfway through the third paragraph in chapter one! I struggled mightily with the first paragraph so finally decided after months of torment to skip the second and go on to the third. My next goal is to decide how many paragraphs should be in a chapter so I can then decide how many chapters should go into a complete book. I never knew that expressing creativity could take so much time and energy.

I hope you have (or had depending on when my assistant ever gets around to mailing this) a wonderful birthday and that you celebrate with a lot of friends.

Yours truly,
hi

 


 

Spacey movie release

Billionaire Boys Club

It would appear that Billionaire Boys Club may be going to have some kind of theatrical release after all. According to IMDB, it will be released in the US on August 3 and Portugal on September 27. The official trailer is on YouTube and is showing a July 19 release date somewhere I can’t place yet. Thank you to Randi.
