The Whole Wide World

I know it has been a while since I posted a clip from the "In Conversation" interview. I've been a wee bit busy is all. I finally had some time over the weekend to catch my breath and do the screen caps on this section. So, here is the one and only, Mr. D'Onofrio, talking about my personal favorite film of date...The Whole Wide World.



Three "small" segments to go, and I'll get to them as soon as I can...promise.

I Also Wonder...

If the USA Network will pull out "all the stops" for advertising Season 10 like they did when LOCI was originally welcomed into the fold back in...what...2007?

Remember these?

Also, I have decided to disable "anonymous" comments, or at least "I think" I disabled them. Life is just too damn short, ya know?

I Wonder...

Who will bring Bobby a "pie" to welcome him back to the USA Network? In case there is "any" doubt, I happily volunteer to undertake that particular delectable "chore."

I realize I have already revisited this promo on a recent post, but...considering the developments surrounding LOCI and VDO...I decided one more look couldn't hurt anybody.

I Knew Something Was Afoot...

...when I opened my Yahoo email and messages. Turns out, there will be a Season 10 of LOCI; eight episodes, and the kicker? VDO is coming back.

So, Bobby is coming back after all. I know a lot of people will have mixed feelings about this, but I am one "cautiously optimistic," but otherwise, HAPPY camper! Finally, something to look forward to!!!

Now, so many things come to mind, not the least of which is...HOW are they going to do this, but I'm game. They must have made VDO an offer he couldn't refuse is all I can say, because we all know he's not in it for the money. Hopefully, he will have something to say about the quality of episodes and writers and such.

Guess I got my Bobby-Bear-Hug after all, huh?

And to the USA Network, we can all say a collective, "TOLD YOU SO!!!!!" LOCI just ain't LOCI without Vincent D'Onofrio.

I Need A Hug

Not just any hug, mind you. I need a big ol' Bobby BEAR Hug!

And...perhaps...a kiss on the cheek.

Comments are off only temporarily. I'll turn them back on when I recover my life coping skills. That may take a while.

Men In Black

Cannot think of a single, solitary thing to say. Am presently working 10-12 hour days; can't eat, can't sleep...well, not without a little medicinal assistance. The "can't eat" part doesn't bother me so much; Lord knows I could stand to lose a gazillion pounds. The blog and VDO videos and my Reds are the only escape I have these days.

So, for those of you who have already seen the "In Conversation" interview...well, you're probably not stopping by here anyway. For those of you who have not seen the entire interview...this one's for you.

Vincent...On Acting

In this next section of the "In Conversation" interview, VDO talks about actors and acting and some young actors he admires today. As part of the lead-in to this segment, the moderator said that, during his research, he read several references in which Vincent was referred to as an "actor's actor," and he asked VDO, "What does that mean?" To which, Mr. D'Onofrio candidly replied, "I have no idea."

Then the moderator went on to ask, and I'm paraphrasing, "What do actors look for in each other, or what impresses them in one another?" VDO's answer, complete with myriad hand gestures, may be enjoyed below.



How To Get Your Very Own "In Conversation" DVD

But first, a word from our sponsor. That would be me. A few people have contacted me privately, wanting to know how to get a copy of the "In Conversation" video, or if I would upload the videos, so they could download them to their computer. More on this in a moment.

First, let me say that I am still in "shock" that I have not seen this anywhere else on the web...the source site notwithstanding. For "weeks" I checked every VDO blog, every VDO Google Alert, conducted extensive Google searches, etc., fully expecting to find this interview mentioned somewhere...anywhere, but I found nary a whisper of its existence. I am not ashamed to say that I was "thrilled"...and a little "giddy" be in possession of this untold treasure and was anxious to share it with fellow Vincent fans. So, I started working up the individual segments because I cannot post the entire hour and twenty-four minute interview at once.

After the first two or three postings, a couple of people contacted me about uploading the videos. Well, I knew that would problem...I do not mind sharing. After all, I have no "exclusive" right to this interview. I had already checked out the Megaupload site that a lot of people use in anticipation of inquiries like that. I downloaded the my computer, and both times, my virus software went NUTS, flashing big warning signs like...Danger Will Robinson...DANGER, so I backed off from that.

Permit me to explain. I had a MAJOR computer meltdown back in March and was without my laptop for almost a month as I fiddled with the folks at Dell while I tried all the "fixes" they suggested before they finally sent me a brand spanking newly "rebuilt" hard drive. Dell asked me what the computer was doing before the "malfunction," and I told them I had just installed a Windows update and restarted the computer, as I was prompted to do, and the screen went black and never started again. The Dell employee assured me that installing the Windows update had nothing to do with my hard drive failure, but all I'm sayin' is that's the way things went down.

Anyway, my computer guy was able to retrieve all my data, but the whole experience cost me about $300 and untold trauma to my emotional psyche as I went through laptop withdrawal. So, I hope you will forgive me if I'm a little skittish about downloading
"suspicious" software, or at least software that my virus program
"perceives" as suspicious.

Where was I? Oh, yeah, next I tried to copy the DVD because... again...I knew folks would ask about that, and they did. And again, I am more than happy to do it IF I can ever figure out how to burn a DVD from my computer. Believe me, no one is more amazed than I that I was able to do all the things I had to do to get these little snippets ready to post; I am, barely, computer literate. But I was a woman on a mission...a "quest" to share all the VDO love.

So, if you want your very own DVD of the interview, follow the yellow brick road of happiness... otherwise known as...the "link" and contact the folks at METV in Bradenton, Florida . I passed this info along to a fellow VDO-ite on Tuesday, and her copy is already in the mail from the good folks at METV. I believe she said the cost was $12. That is a small price to pay for 84 minutes of pure "bliss" with Mr. D'onofrio. (Don't we all wish? Well, I actually wish for BOBBY, but you get my drift.)
