Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Harry Caul: I'm not afraid of death, 
but I am afraid of murder. 

God I love The Conversation. I wish I was watching The Conversation right this minute. Anyway a happy 85th birthday today to the great great Gene Hackman, who is sorely missed from the movies. Missed so much that the internet - specifically Dylan McDermott - tried to murder him the other day!

That was in reference to a tweet, since deleted (although he did mention it in a follow-up), wherein McDermott gave Gene the RIP tweet treatment, although he's still very much alive, which seems to have been born out of confusion over a Grantland article earlier this week which was celebrating Gene's career and was titled "Gene Hackman Is Gone But Still in Charge" -- the article's title has since been changed to "Gene Hackman Is Retired But Still in Charge," but the damage was done. That sad say day when Hackman passes... all eyes will now turn to Dylan "Bloody Hands" McDermott.
