Just realizing Stephen King uses cats a lot in his books/short stories (& movies).. and wondering if he loves cats or hates them?

Posted Image

cats are also heavily involved in King's Cats Eye (which is based off a couple short stories from Night Shift--the stories are all separate but connected by a cat) and also Pet Sematary (cat resurrected from the dead).

I think King loves cats.

Also, I hope everyone keeps posting awesome cat gifs. My body is ready.

I'm leaning that way too--- even though there's a lot of dead cats & then the cat-like.. vampires? (not sure what they are) in this movie.... A cat is the hero. And in Cat's Eye, in the final story the cat initially gets a bad wrap but too ends up being the hero.

Seconded for more cat gifs :

If I recall correctly, Cam Bert succeeded, but, yeah, Paul's super crafty.

I did, but he did call me a new poster I believe. I've accepted that my user name is generic and easily forgettable.

This was before my time - what were the names everyone used?

Mine was Camarasaurs Bert. I relish any chance I have to drop dinosaur knowledge. It makes 6 year old me feel validated.

I think cats are his second favourite animal. Right behind billy-bumblers.

Also, here's for you

The "WTF are you doing?" cat...

And the "It was you" cat...

I'm disappointed in everyone (including myself) that no one has yet mentioned the best (non-Simpsons) version of the "Maniac Limbs Grafted Onto Unfortunate Nice Guy, Thus Making Nice Guy a Maniac" plot, 1935's Mad Love, starring the always wonderfully creeptastic Peter Lorre (adapted from the novel Hands of Orlac). I should have posted about it in the main thread, like, a week ago but I failed you and I am sorry.

Or maybe someone already did and I am an asshole which is probably true. I am sorry.

Bill O'Reilly made a racist comment about Congress Woman Maxine Waters' "wig" and my first reaction was to come here and ask if June thought it was a wig. Because it looked like real hair to me.

Hhhhhh....probably won't get to watch this movie before the episode, despite owning it on DVD, because having two toddlers and a pregnant wife are hella time-consuming. Good thing I saw it so many times as a kid, I think I remember most of it.
I will always hear you.

I still cannot fucking believe his career survived after he told that woman he wanted to use a falafel on her.

If you guys want to yell about "Iron Fist" some more, Lewis Tan is on They Call Us Bruce. I think we all agreed that his "drunken master" fight scene was one of the best in the series.

His dad is Philip Tan who is an actor and stunt choreographer who worked on SURF NINJAS, TANGO AND CASH, CRANK: HIGH VOLTAGE.

Does that make him a HDTGM all star?

ETA: Love their stories about the filming of various RUSH HOUR movies. And now I want HDTGM to cover "No Retreat, No Surrender"!

The entire time I was watching Sleepwalkers I kept thinking to myself "Doesn't young Brian Krause kinda look like Ryan Kwanten?" and I firmly blame last weeks discussion for this. However Kwanten > Krause.

Yes, but the important question is, does Cameron H have boudoir shots of Brian Krause?
