I cannot believe. You made me love a duck. Goose. Whatever the heck Gladstone is. ;v; Just saw your comic and looked up a bunch of stuff and I never even liked the Ducks before this fml-

well that’s a victory if ever there was one, more love for ducks is only ever a good thing!

Edward Petherbridge in the ‘The Exorcism’ episode of the BBC’s Dead of Night series, 1972

“I am jealous of everything whose beauty does not die. I am jealous of the portrait you have painted of me. Why should it keep what I must lose? Every moment that passes takes something from me and gives something to it. Oh, if it were only the other way! If the picture could change, and I could be always what I am now!”

-Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

anonymous asked:

Thoughts on The Picture of Dorian Gray? Also, is it at all graphic?

well, well, well. sorry, but a malicious grin is required here, my dear anon. not only you asked the right person in terms of enthusiasm, because the picture of dorian gray is actually my most favorite among my favorite books, but also because i read it so many times, both in the original version and in the cut one, in the translated one and in the commented one, that i do, i do, i do know it like i know the back of my hand - or probably i know it still a little more than the back of my hand.

also, you are talking with the person who actually wrote the italian wikipedia page of this novel and edited the english one lol - so yeah. i do have a lot of thoughts about the picture of dorian gray and oscar wilde in general.

Happy Birthday George Sanders 3rd July 1906 - 25th April 1972

“Oh George,” I would say to him in a jocular manner, “you really are a dreadful man!” And he would always take it with a chuckle. - Brian Aherne

George has been the kindest and most gentle man who brought me out of the depths of despair, made me laugh and helped me to start living again.  - Benita Hume

But whether the picture business is worth getting into or not is another matter. The amount of intrigue involved in the social life out here is often so tiresome, and the amount of restraint, diplomacy and bum-sucking that has to be done so nauseating that there are times when one asks oneself the question “Is success worth the price you pay for it?” - George Sanders, writing to his dad in 1937
