I wish I could do that.
It's a shame people aren't generous like that these days.
I try and be generous, but man. I am not generous to that degree, but I don't have the financial capacity to be either. A lot of celebrities donate lots of money and that's great of them. I like when they don't crazily advertise it either.
Most of the time it's because Anne Boylene is seen through the lens of her husband, and not as an individual person who did things individually. It's really the same for all of Henry's wives - none of them exist as individuals, but as wives of Henry VIII. Which has always frustrated me.
It's becoming less of a problem as more women historians are writing about them, but really - Anne was only married to Henry for about two years, IIRC. To sum her all up as existing in those two years, plus her time as a lady in waiting, is just... well, vexing, really.
I agree. *nod*
She's such an interesting historical figure. I need to read up more on her, but the girl in the Tudors is really getting on my nerves so she might have put me off from her for just a little while. lol. We'll see.
*nod* For real. And her poor neck..
Fascinating! It's crazy that something so interesting and relevant would be left out of her biographies.
I think sot oo.
Who knows, maybe it's not true, but it seems pretty highly researched to be bs.
lol! Yeah, poor thing.
Elizabeth's a great great film.
I really liked the era of The Tudors.. though since watching the Showtime version? I'm getting a little annoyed.

Man, I sure get lots of porn links these days.
Don't believe a word of that pro-Ann Boelyn revisionist nonsense. That woman was an evil strumpet, possibly even a witch, who used her dark ways to seduce Henry away from poor Catherine. I mean seriously, she had six fingers on one hand, a sure sign of witchery.
BTW, if you're not watching the Tudors already, I'm betting you'd like it. Great period stuff.
Oh, I agree that she absolutely knew what she was doing.
The people LOVED Katherine.
She had to compete SOMEHOW.
lol, that evil bitch. ;)
Sooo... about The Tudors.
I wanted to love it. I wanted to SO bad. But the costumes are PISSING me off. They are sooo off. There is no way on Gods green Earth that Henry would walk around the castle wearing a vest... and just a f'ng vest. Excuse me? Where's your tunic sir? And Anne Boelyn? I know you're a hussy, but baring your shoulders? To the shock of all Renaissance Festival goers of the world.. that was a big ole no no. Ack. So that's my first issue. The historical inaccuracy is pretty severe.
And I HATE the actress who plays Anne. I hate her!!!
The Cardinal is fantastic. Amazing. Great.
George is good.
Thomas is good.
Henry? Eeeeeeh.... I'm not loving him, unfortuantely. I've liked him in other roles, so I can't decide if it's the writing of the show that makes him so one dimensial, or if it's because it's a series and he's not able to make that transition seamlessly, where with two hour movies you've got a real good beginning, middle and end.. not wiht this show.
I mean my God... what kind of a season finale was THAT!?!
Anyway... I'm not trying to be a bitch if you like it, I just had such high expectations. Apparently unrealistic expectations.
I don't have the Ren Fair background, so I didn't know about the anachronistic costumes. I don't blame you for being pissed off at that because that kind of thing definitely bothers me, as well. Although with me its usually science fiction stuff where they get the science completely wrong. Can't stand that.
As for Anne, I guess I don't really pay attention to her since every scene she's in so is Henry, and I've been in freakin' love with Jonathon Rhys Meyers since he played Steerpike on Ghormenghast. But truthfully that has little to do with his acting ability ;)
And, yeah, it wasn't the best season finale. I guess I just overlook a multitude of sins for costumed, intrigue-laden, quasi-historical dramas.
Oh, it's less the renfair background as it is theatre costuming and the like. But yeah, I'm not trying to sound like a bitch. ;)
Yeah I usually like him, but I think mainly in a film setting. I don't think that the television series medium is his forte, but I think he's a much better actor in film.
What's Ghormenghast? *tilts head*
Gormanghast was a BBC miniseries based on a fantasy novel. I never read the novel, but the show focused on the character of Steerpike (John Rhys Meyers), who was sort of an anti-hero climbing his way to power in the noble family.
But mostly I liked it because he's dreamy ;)
Oooh! That sounds very interesting. I shall see if Amazon has a copy once my bank account is a little more friendly then now. ;)
hehe, totally stole that for todays post, don't know if you saw. :) I'm just catching up.
omg, that was a GREAT youtube clip!!!
That is right :) :) Coming from a huge fan of the Elizabethan era :)
