Sir Anthony Hopkins Hears The Waltz He Wrote 50 Years Ago For The First Time

Academy Award-winning actor Sir Anthony Hopkins was a musician before he got into acting. 50 years ago he wrote a waltz but was too afraid to ever hear it play. Dutch violinist André Rieu performs it for the very first time. Watch Hopkins’ reaction.

this is the video that worked for me! definitely listen, it’s a gorgeous song!

The best bit of parenting Thor has ever got and it’s actually Loki.

Odin and Loki on Jane.

Isn’t it interesting that Odin says, in effect, “don’t attach yourself to humans because their mortality makes them unworthy” while Loki says “don’t attach yourself to humans because their mortality will cause you pain”.

And yet it is Loki who is considered to be the cruel and evil one and Odin the kind father-figure?

It’s like - gasp - Loki’s main concern is protecting his brother’s heart while Odin’s main concern is reinforcing the bigoted notion of Asgardian superiority he’s implanted in Thor’s head.

Of course, Loki is the villain and driven only by jealousy, so we Must (Must!) read an undercurrent of jealousy in his words and assume no sincerity in his concern for Thor to go along with that, but still. Remind me which one of them calls Jane a goat? Which one suggests letting elvish antimatter slowly kill her, and which one repeatedly throws himself between her and danger? I’m having a very hard time keeping it all straight, you know. Damn villains with their protectiveness and all.

I swear this movie was an exercise in seeing how far Loki could NOT ACT VILLAINOUS AT ALL and still have people call him that.

The meal will begin with an hors d’oeuvre tartare. Your feet. The main course — the rest of you — won’t be served until 7 hours later. But during that time, you’ll be able to enjoy the effects of the consumed appetizer with a full-bodied saline drip.
