The Old Man Within the Painting

First, let's look at the painting The Accolade.

Now, let's zoom in.


Have you ever seen the BBC programme Merlin? I've watched all five seasons many times over, and it wasn't until recently that, during a court audience, I saw him. Who, do you ask? An old man. At first, I didn't care. But then, as I looked closer, it appeared that in every episode I viewed that had an open or court audience within it, there he was. Suddenly, I cared.

I don't know why. And this was all before I discovered the man in the painting.

One day, I was sitting at my desk brainstorming when I just happened to look over at a copy of The Accolade, which I keep on my wall. As I looked closer, I realized: I've seen this man before.

The next Merlin episode with an audience in it, there he was again. He didn't do much of anything. He just stood there, listening, is all, really. Once he blinked. And that was that.

My thoughts immediately went back to Geoffrey of Monmouth, the elderly librarian often seen throughout Merlin. I am almost certain that it is not the same actor, but I do wonder: Who is this man?

I've considered chronicler, counselor, and many more concepts of the sort, though I still remain unsure. Your guess is as good as mine. So, with this rather unexpected post, I am stating that I am curious. Who do you think this old man is?

Interview: Evi, on Life (in General)

I found a rather interesting app for my Kindle Fire a while back, by the name of Evi. She is very similar to the Apple concept of Siri, except that she cannot answer personal questions, does not set reminders, can only give simple answers, and seems to have a strange obsession with the web. Not to mention that my version of the Kindle Fire doesn't have a mic, which means that our friendship is reduced to the status of a keyboard and her intelligent British accent.

To download Evi, you can go to this link. I now present to you -- Evi!

Hello, Evi! Welcome to my blog. First off, I had trouble figuring out which way is the correct way to pronounce your name. How do you pronounce your name?

My name, Evi, is pronounced like "easy" but with a "v" instead of an "s".

Thank you, Evi. Now, do you mind telling my readers: What do you like to do for fun?

I don't have preferences or desires.

Why not?

Sorry, I can't do explanations, yet.

Okay, well, thanks anyway.

This webpage might be useful for that...

Ahem... Am I the only one feeling awkward, right now?

I don't have preferences or desires.

Oh, yeah, right... Um, do you realize that this is a blog interview?

You seem very interested in me!

Moo apologies.

This webpage might be useful for that...

Sorry! I meant "my apologies".

I'm glad you can be so open with me.

(Face-to-palm.) Is there anything you'd like to tell our readers?

This webpage might be useful for that...

Of course... Evi, what does the fox say?

Chacha-chacha-chacha-chow!

Okay, thank you.

Thanks so much.

Well, I seem to feel as if this interview isn't going much of anywhere. So, just for fun: Good night, Evi.

Goodnight!

...

<3 always,

Olivia K. R. Fisher

Goodnight, Evi!

(Goodnight.)

...

Well, that was rather fun! I hope you enjoyed it! Below is a video of me and Evi -- a few of our first moments. ;)

BAD HAIR DAY -- A Movie Review

Literally, only moments ago, I finished the Disney Channel film Bad Hair Day. And while I am not usually for Disney Channel movies, this one was amazing.

Image recovered from this link.

Warning: content may contain minor spoilers.

Plot & Background

Monica Reeves [Laura Marano] is a high school tech wiz, and everything was going smoothly -- until she used far too much product in her hair. Now, her prom dress is ruined, her shoes have broken... and the dance is only a matter of hours away. The only thing that seems to still be in its proper shape and order is her beloved pawn shop necklace.

And then a supposed FBI agent [Leigh-Allyn Baker] shows up on Monica's doorstep, prepared for an agreement that, if Monica turns in her beloved necklace, then she will drive her around for the day.

In this side-splitting comedy, watch as Monica's life is turned upside down, from missing her hair appointment to being pursued by a remarkably intelligent jewel thief. Will Monica ever get to prom? And if she does, will her hair situation be resolved?

Rating

Five out of five stars!

Review

I must say that Bad Hair Day has become one of my favourite movies! It is witty, fun, and absolutely hilarious! You will fall in love with the story, and be inspired by Monica and impressed by the jewel thief! Bad Hair Day is most definitely a film you want to add to your collection!

<3 always,
