It's definitely not a good thing then that recent news reports project that we'll be experiencing the El Nino effect again later this year, which typically means an increased likelihood of drought in the country but definitely more heat at the very least. And given we only have two seasons in this country - dry and wet - the options aren't looking too great at all.
We still do not own an air conditioner. Tobie and I aren't too good with the cold and the added expense (and environmental impact) that comes with owning an AC unit has never been a logical purchase just yet. Admittedly the current weather situation has me somewhat reconsidering this decision, but we'll see. We've managed to survive without one so far and the Sietch is still a lot cooler than most places - at least friends tell us. We'll make do, one way or another.
Then again, Bob Hoskins was never a conventional actor. His career is filled with such diverse movie credits including Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Hook, Brazil, Super Mario Bros. and more recently Mrs. Henderson Presents. He was a genre actor that was willing to embrace almost any role fully and he brought a particular degree of class and gravitas to that performance.
Just look at this portrayal of Eddie Valiant in Who Framed Roger Rabbit? There is no reason a distinguished actor would take such a role, but he did. And not only did he just act in it for kicks - he really made the character memorable. And more than just being a great actor, his willingness to embrace roles like Eddie, Smee and even Super Mario will forever live on in my childhood memories.
