Bond....James Bond

Just got back from the Movie Theater.
Saw the new James Bond Movie - Skyfall.
It was Great - The audience was cheering, laughing, clapping and totally into the whole Bond Movie experience.

I can't believe we have been watching Bond Movies for 50 Years now.

I'm off to make a Martini - Shaken, not stirred.

Yes, I like Daniel Craig as Bond, too.

I'm very excited for this film because I'm a James Bond nerd.

You're an old fart, aren't you.

Yes, I am as big a pain in the ass in person as I seem to be on line.

Daniel Craig is the only real challenger to Sean.

The Aussie effort was lame.
Rog the Dodge was gay.
Pearce is a girl.
Dalton was OK as a fill in.

I am not a nerdy Bondy, but I like the toys and the chics.

Interesting thing about Daniel Craig... He is styled after Steve McQueen. This is not just my weird opinion.. There are lots of things scattered between his films that directly link him to McQueen. Mostly clothing items, sunglasses, etc that are shared and it has been done intentionally. In planning his image, they wanted the effortless cool that McQueen had. Most interesting to us though was his comment in the girl with the dragon tattoo that he had a motorcycle before; a triumph. It was very noticeable because it was an oddly forced statement. I'm just waiting for the James Bondeville special edition

Hey Pop,
Yes, i guess I am an Old Fart.
I remember when Commando's and H1's were the 'SuperBikes' - I owned both
I remember when Barry Sheene and James Hunt ruled the world.

But I still get a kick out of my Bonny ,Tom Sykes, Jonathan Rea, Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton.
I just love Bikes, Racing, and the UK.

Don`t forget, when you go to see "Skyfall," it ain`t over till the fat lady sings.

She said, "You can`t take ANYTHING seriously, can you?" I just laughed.
