Good Morning, World

I know that sometimes actors have to relearn how to walk in front of a camera so it seems "natural" and not like they're acting the idea of walking -- there's a very funny bit about this in Charlie Kaufman's very funny movie Synecdoche New York (I said what I said -- it's very funny dammit!) -- but I think you must have to re-learn how to walk all over again when you're walking naked in front of a camera and you know said walk will be turned into a gif by your thirsty online admirers. 

I wonder if there's a whole science involved to it? Coaching? On how to squeeze and lift the buttocks while walking and finding the light that favors all the right places. Anyway if there is a coaching job for this I hope this post can be considered my application. I think I'd be ace at this gig. In related news -- have we all watched the second season of The Great yet? 

I just finished it the night before last, hence why it took me so long to get around to making these gifs of Nicholas Hoult doing the naked butt-clench walk again (see previous instance here), the one that favors him so well. He's a pro! We all should take lessons from him. I really think this could be a lucrative side-gig, Nicky. Call me. I'll handle all the details -- you just bring your... well, you know.

I just finished this last night. I thought the season had some issues, but I still enjoyed it. The last few after Gillian Anderson's arrival were especially good, and they stuck the landing.

Heaven. The show gets better in both seasons
