MOVIE OF MY LIFE TAG.

Having read this, the Movie Of My Life tag, on Tasha's The Happy Larkspur blog I simply had to join in the fun ...
  • Who would play you in the movie of your life, and why? Hmm, my first thoughts were not who I'd like to play me but who I wouldn't. Nothing to do with her acting skills, I just don't like Melissa McCarthy's tendency of playing the fat chic who is the butt of just about every fat joke known to mankind.
  • Would would play your significant other? Now this question required no thought whatsoever. Who else but .... John Barrowman?
What genre of movie would it be? Well as I'm particularly fond of John Barrowman in his persona of Dr Who's/Torchwood's Captain Jack (pictured left) so how about a sci-fi come post-apocalyptic movie?
  • What would the movie be called? Ooh, now there's a question and one I'll have to give some more thought to. Hmm! How about ... Gifted Children Of Fortune in reference to the belief that the rhyme ring-a-ring-a-roses (believed to be about plague) is in fact based on a Pagan myth which cites "Gifted children of fortune have the power to laugh roses, as Treyja wept gold."
What would be the opening song at the start of the movie? I think I'll go with Fear No Evil as sung by Jimmy Nail, a multi-talented Newcastle born and bred actor and singer/songwriter who I admire greatly.


Now for who to tag?

Knowing how much they also love movies I'm going with Kelly@ Kelly's Thoughts & Ramblings along with LL Cool Joe @ Joey's Pad but please feel free to join in should you wish, I'd love to know about the movie of your life.

The last post done before my recent illness. I shall be back with reviews done after my illness, including a review of Little Lord Fauntleroy, soon. TT

This looks fun and I love your answers. Hmmm I'll give it a go but the questions look pretty hard to answer really. Maybe I'll read Kelly's first to give me some more ideas! Ha.

Sorry about your illness. I enjoyed reading your post - fun.

Thank you. Love love, Andrew. Bye.

Kelly said...

Oh, this does look fun and I like your answers. In fact, I think I'll bump what I had planned for tomorrow to a later slot and have a go at it. It's gonna take some thought, so I'm off to work on that....

BTW, I'm one of those who thought the "ring around the rosey" rhyme did come from the plague era, thinking pockets of poseys/flowers would help ward it off. Interesting to learn otherwise.

Kelly said...

Maybe I should clarify that I didn't think poseys could ward off the plague, but that the people then thought it. ;)

I've answered the questions and scheduled my post for tomorrow. Even though I don't normally thank people for tagging me, I am on this one. It was fun to do!

Tracy, you did a great job with this--your post is very entertaining!

Natasha Hill said...

I loved your answers to this Tracy! John Barrowman is brilliant, and always delivered when he was on Doctor Who and Torchwood, and I loved the song you picked too. I see why you said no to Melissa McCarthy, I think she's brilliant, but like you, I don't like the fact she was shoehorned into the 'funny fat girl role' because she's so much more! - Tasha

I see what you mean about McCarthy. She's very funny but the type-casting gets old.
Hope you're feeling better every day.

Tracy,
A great post! I was not familiar with
Jimmy Nail, and appreciated his song
very much and I can understand your
admiration- and respect for him.
I am looking forward to Kelly's and
LL Cool Joe's posts.

John Barrowman as Torchwood's Captain Jack – oh yes, me too! Or David Tennant as Alec Hardy in Broadchurch. :)

Brian Joseph said...

A very fun and interesting post.

Hopefully the world will nat take a turn for the worse so that your life story tuns into a post apocalyptic tale :)
