Adventure and discovery was the enticement that drew Lee Elders to this wild lawless land; the supernatural world of the Shuara that live in a mystical realm of ayahuasca-induced visions where the ethereal world is encased within our third dimensional reality. Along the way he discovered his true self - his Kakarma. However incredible some of the incidents may seem this is a true story.

Default Downton Abbey series 4!

The final episode of Downton Abbey, series 4, the Christmas special, airs in Britain about an hour from now.

The Daily Telegraph states:
"Hollywood A-lister Shirley MacLaine returns as Cora’s acid-dripping mother-in-law Martha Levinson; and, in an inspired cast addition Sideways star Paul Giamatti appears as Cora’s playboy brother. A twinkling guest spot by James Fox and another hilariously haughty turn by Maggie Smith layers up the icing on the Christmas cake."

as well as:
"...the best verbal fireworks come, unsurprisingly, in the sizzling exchanges between Maggie Smith, as the Dowager Countess, and Shirley MacLaine as her antagonist-in-law Martha Levinson. A waspish “You see, Violet, I have no wish to be a great lady,” draws the delightfully haughty response: “A decision that must be reinforced every time you look in the glass.” Miaow. But for once it is the American who has the last word."

I'm looking forward to discovering what that last sentence means when Downton Abbey, series 4, arrives on Blu-ray on January 28th.

Thumbs up

Thank you Rob, I truly appreciate your posts, this photo of Shirley is a gem, love the clothes of the era, we can really see the turn of the century where they give us so many images in the Downton Abbey story of the 'Belle Époque' and 'Fin de Siècle' characteristics.

The art that can be seen in the cultural growth, apparel, social attitudes, of both 'periods' that traverse in time and weave into the tapestry that is Downton Abbey. Looking forward to the new season with enthusiasm.

One example that I think illustrates the time that I am referring to is blatantly illustrated here by Edward Munch, ha-ha:

Default D.A. Season 4 arrived on Blu-ray yesterday

I tore open the box from Amazon when I got home from work last night and put the third of three disks into our player to watch the final two episodes of Season 4. Shirley is in the final episode which was so good that I had to watch it twice. Not only is she unforgettable, so is Mr. Giamatti and the brilliant young actor who plays his valet, Michael Benz. I was lucky enough to see Mr. Benz in a production of As You Like It at the Globe Theatre in London in 2009; he gave one of the finest performances, as Silvius, that I have seen in almost 40 years of attending the theater.

Thumbs up Hey! Beautiful Lady! Bravo!

THANK YOU SHIRLEY!

Downton Abbey is in an awesome era for Shirley as Martha Levinson, to slip into the wardrobe, the ‘digs’ (house) and the amusing ‘digs’ for Maggie’s Violet Crawley, et al. She gives us acting that triggers a physiological experience, slightly rapid heart rate, excitement/twinkling eyes, alertness and such a relaxing sensation of pleasure that it stimulates the desire for more, so would love to see more of her.

Rob, you are a gem yourself, thank you.

Every Blessing,
Love,
Di
