[20:11] * KK has joined #Deryni_Destinations
[20:11] <jemler> KK
[20:11] <the_Bee> Hi KK!
[20:11] <JastaElf> See??  It worked!
[20:11] <Sarah> thats ounds great too, shiral
[20:11] <jemler> looks like all the food worked!
[20:11] * +Shiral scrys for KK
[20:11] <JastaElf> Hi KK
[20:11] <+Shiral> Wow!
[20:11] <Sarah> KK! hiya
[20:11] <Tika> hi KK :)
[20:11] <+Shiral> Talk about fast work, Jasta!
[20:11] <+Shiral> Lol
[20:11] <Sarah> lol
[20:11] <JastaElf> Heh!  We knows our stuff, we does....
[20:11] <jemler> i'm gonna remember that one, Jasta!
[20:11] <Sarah> lol :)
[20:12] <jemler> and then everybody shuts up!
[20:12] <KK> Hi, guys.  Been caught up on Olympics while I go over page proofs for the paperback of DC (author's cut).  Apparently they're getting ready to release all three.
[20:12] <+Shiral> KK, we have a salad bar, and a sundae bar. What's your pleasure? =o)
[20:12] <ambush> KK! :)
[20:12] <Sarah> lol
[20:12] <+Shiral> Olympics are rather hypnotic
[20:12] * ambush tackle-pounces KK into the cushions
[20:12] * Sarah munches on salad.
[20:12] <+Shiral> By now the news would be "Michael Phelps did NOT get a gold medal."
[20:12] <Sarah> LOL
[20:13] <JastaElf> I was annoyed that the equestrian stuff got so little play on TV.  :(
[20:13] * Bynw has joined #Deryni_Destinations
[20:13] <Bynw> hiyas KK
[20:13] <+Shiral> Me too, Jasta
[20:13] <jemler> wb bynw
[20:13] <the_Bee> hiyas bynw
[20:13] <KK> It was a phenomenal achievement.  But I was enchanted with the gymnastics.
[20:13] <+Shiral> I think I've seen about 5 minutes
[20:13] <Sarah> hey KK, i need to ask you some questions,via PM?
[20:13] <ambush> Two words, KK:
[20:13] <ambush> Shawn
[20:13] <ambush> Johnson
[20:13] <the_Bee> my tv's broken :(
[20:13] <Sarah> aww
[20:13] <jemler> nice counting, ambush :)
[20:13] <+Shiral> The gymnastics are amazing
[20:14] <the_Bee> I've heard the chinese gymnasts are verra young.
[20:14] <KK> Shawn is a little dynamo, sort of like Marilou Retton, but Nastia was like a ballerina.
[20:14] <+Shiral> I can't imagine doing a backwards flip over a four inch wide wooden beam
[20:14] <Tika> she's so tiny  - we saw her at the airport last summer
[20:14] <+Shiral> Yes, Nastia is very graceful
[20:14] <Tika> I thought she was about 8
[20:15] <the_Bee> I can't imagine standing up on a 4" beam.
[20:15] <+Shiral> Short, but muscled like a trucker
[20:15] * JastaElf would hate to meet some of those little gymnasts in a dark alley. *grins*
[20:15] <KK> Nastia, about 8? 
[20:15] <Sarah> lol
[20:15] <+Shiral> Shawn, I think they' meant
[20:15] <jemler> you afraid they would do a double back flip over you jasta?
[20:16] * DesertRose sets mode: +o Bynw
[20:16] <+Shiral> They could probably lift  us and carry us off
[20:16] <JastaElf> Nah, just that they're all stronger than me.  :)
[20:16] <+Shiral> Abducted by gymnasts--eek!
[20:16] * DesertRose sets mode: +o KK
[20:16] <Sarah> ..... i dont watch tv so im not in this
[20:16] <@KK> The Chinese girls were really young looking, though.  And 16-year-olds aren't usually still losing baby teeth.  At least not front ones that are visible; molars, maybe.
[20:16] <Sarah> lol
[20:17] <Tika> yeah I meant Shawn looked about 8 when standing next to her :)
[20:17] <kelric> oh.  KK.
[20:17] <the_Bee> are you sure they're baby teeth?
[20:17] <+Shiral> And talk about tiny. I wouldn't let a kid play on those  uneven bars!
[20:17] <Sarah> O.o KK, uh....PM?
[20:18] <@KK> ??
[20:18] <Sarah> i sent you a private message
[20:19] <@KK> OK

[20:20] <@KK> I'm good.  Getting a lot done while Scott is in LA seeing agent and producer friend;  I've been working on finishing our new pantry.
[20:20] <+Shiral> Bynw, don't change your knickers in the chat room!

[20:21] <Sarah> hi kelsa, im Sarah
[20:21] <@KK> Film producer, who wants to do an idea Scott pitched to him more than 20 years ago.  So you see, never give up hope.  It's a western, BTW.
[20:21] <@DesertRose> Cool.
[20:21] <kelsa> Hi Sarah
[20:21] <the_Bee> cool!
[20:21] <ambush> cool!

[20:26] <ambush> lol
[20:27] * DeryniBot has joined #Deryni_Destinations
[20:27] * ChanServ sets mode: +ao DeryniBot DeryniBot
[20:27] <&DeryniBot>  Gwynedd's Sheriff, Marnin, nods to DeryniBot and checks their weapons at the door.
[20:27] <jemler> what book is it?
[20:27] <jemler> Bot is Back
[20:27] <ambush> Deryni Rising
[20:28] <+Shiral> The Return of Bot
[20:28] <jemler> you haven't read it yet?! shame, shame shame!
[20:28] <Sarah> *sighs*
[20:28] * Sarah finishes salad
[20:28] * ambush drops the book on sarah's salad
[20:29] * Sarah smacks ambush
[20:29] * kelsa hands Sarah a towel to clean her new book
[20:29] <jemler> ambush! how can she read a book thats covered in ranch dressing?
[20:29] <ambush> lol
[20:29] <Sarah> Yeah ambush!?
[20:29] <ambush> well, clean it off and read it
[20:29] <ambush> :P
[20:29] <kelsa> hence the towel
[20:30] <JastaElf> So how
[20:30] <JastaElf> is the pantry coming, KK?
[20:30] <Sarah> well guys. im going to go.

[20:30] <@DesertRose> see you Sarah!
[20:30] <JastaElf> LOL!  Yes, among other things.
[20:30] <Sarah> thanks for the help
[20:30] <JastaElf> Night sarah
[20:30] <kelsa> Bye Sarah
[20:30] <Sarah> bye everyone
[20:31] <ambush> she's short ^_^
[20:31] <the_Bee> bye sarah
[20:31] <+Shiral> Bye, Sarah
[20:32] <ambush> must be too short to reach the door knob
[20:32] * Sarah Quit (Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client)
[20:33] <ambush> lol
[20:33] <ambush> :)
[20:33] <+Shiral> Where did our Author go?
[20:33] <ambush> i pick on her all the time :)
[20:33] * Festil has joined #Deryni_Destinations
[20:33] <&DeryniBot>  The smell from Wrengl's kitchen draws Festil into the chat.
[20:33] <@KK> I'm here--and also watching women's diving.
[20:33] <jemler> ahhh, the short defenition of "Brother"
[20:33] <+Shiral> Ah
[20:34] * JastaElf is packing boxes
[20:34] <Festil> Hey everyone
[20:34] <JastaElf> Hi Festil!
[20:34] <kelsa> Hi Festil
[20:34] <jemler> hi Festil
[20:34] <the_Bee> hi festil
[20:34] <+Shiral> Hi Festil
[20:35] <ambush> hey festil
[20:35] <+Shiral> Is it springboard or platform diving, KK
[20:35] <@DesertRose> Hi Festil
[20:35] <@KK> Springboard.
[20:35] <kelsa> hope no one hits their head this year - I hate to see that!
[20:35] <ambush> was watching that last night
[20:36] <+Shiral> The Finals aren't yet on here in the west
[20:36] <@KK> One nearly did; I think it may be the one who did it before.
[20:37] <kelsa> that's GOT to be unnerving!  To have done it before and come close again...
[20:37] <kelsa> that's enough to make you quit ... if you let it
[20:37] <+Shiral> The synchronized diving was amazing. Not only do YOU have to do everything right, you have to do it at the same time as the person standing next to you when you're both hurtling down spinning in the air
[20:38] <@KK> Yes, that's always amazing.
[20:38] <ambush> the diving last night was frustrating
[20:38] * `Festil has joined #Deryni_Destinations
[20:38] <&DeryniBot>  Hi there `Festil! Welcome to the chat.
[20:38] <kelsa> I don't think I've seen that before - I'll have to watch for it
[20:38] * Festil Quit (Ping timeout: 121 seconds)
[20:38] <+Shiral> I always feel nervous seeing them standing up there with their heels hanging off the end of the platform
[20:38] * `Festil is now known as Festil
[20:38] <kelsa> My son was most interested in the men's swimming - he wanted to see that dude get the 8th medal
[20:39] <+Shiral> The dude came through
[20:39] <ambush> they penalized one of the US female divers for landing to the left of forward from the board. one of the chinese girls did the same thing and got 2 points better on her score
[20:39] <+Shiral> Of course, a couple other people had to come through with him
[20:39] <kelsa> yes - I missed the meet, but saw the awards ceremony - was cool!
[20:40] <+Shiral> I feel kinda sorry for any US swimmer who is NOT Michael Phelps this year. =o)
[20:40] <ambush> lol
[20:40] <@DesertRose> LOL
[20:40] <kelric> lol
[20:40] <+Shiral> Talk about being eclipsed
[20:40] <@KK> I caught just a glimpse of the mad mob award's ceremony for the 8-person sculls.  That meanat there were 24 people on the podium, all with metal hanging around their necks.  Cool!
[20:40] <kelsa> seems the only thing I've been able to actually catch on TV is the volley ball matches - which are fun to watch too
[20:40] <ambush> i feel sorry for any swimmer that ISN'T Michael Phelps
[20:40] <ambush> :)
[20:40] <+Shiral> That's quite a crowd on the podium
[20:41] <kelsa> need a large podium for that
[20:41] <ambush> anyone watched the beach volleyball? mainly the one game that was played in driving rain
[20:41] <+Shiral> I was glad that Dara Torres got two medals, too
[20:41] <the_Bee> KK or anyone, what's the story on Michael Phelps?
[20:41] <kelsa> missed that one - though I do remember seeing one in the rain - just not "driving" rain
[20:41] <+Shiral> It's a testament to the over 40 crowd
[20:42] <@KK> Some other swimmers have also done well--in events wehre he wasn't competing.  He said in an interview last night that he may add to his repertoire for London in 4 years, though he didn't think he'd swim such a grueling schedule again.  I think he had 19 races this year.
[20:42] <kelsa> that's a lot for anyone
[20:42] <+Shiral> A total of 17 swims, although some of those were relays or for qualifying swims
[20:42] <@KK> 9 golds, more than Marck Spitz, who'd been the former high-medal holder.
[20:43] <the_Bee> ah, cool!
[20:43] <+Shiral> Man's going  home with serious heavy metal
[20:43] <@KK> I want to know who the duscus thrower is in the wind commercial that they've been showing.  He'd make a hot Imre.
[20:43] <@DesertRose> LOL
[20:43] <+Shiral> Let us by ALL means stay focused.  =o)
[20:44] <+Shiral> I thought Imre was a bit wimpier, though.
[20:44] <kelsa> Just hope they don't find any cause to disqualify anyone this year - that creates such a bad stigma around the events
[20:44] <+Shiral> That guy's pretty studly
[20:44] <@DesertRose> LOL
[20:44] <Festil> Was Imre supposed to have been fairly good-looking?
[20:44] <@KK> Hey, the Olympics are a grand excuse to oggle young bodies that are in their prime.
[20:44] <kelsa> lol
[20:44] <Festil> I know Ariella was gorgeous, but..
[20:44] <@DesertRose> Not from what I got.
[20:44] <+Shiral> Good looking, but lacking in personal discipline
[20:44] <kelsa> let the oggling begin!
[20:44] <the_Bee> I never thought of Imre as athetic.
[20:44] <+Shiral> KK, I agree completely! =o)
[20:45] <+Shiral> Those men gymnasts--what arms and shoulders they've got!
[20:45] <@KK> Good looking, yes; and maybe not quite as hot as the discus thrower.  And lacking in discipline, yes.  Think of the emperor in Gladiator.
[20:45] <JastaElf> Oh yum...
[20:45] <JastaElf> :)
[20:45] <kelsa> I never watched Gladiator - too much blood/guts for my taste in movies
[20:45] <+Shiral> Imre was a soft little snail
[20:45] <kelsa> I can handle it in books, but not in movies...go figure
[20:46] <@KK> Gladiator isn't that gory; and it's a great film.
[20:46] <JastaElf> The gory is all kind of off-camera
[20:46] <+Shiral> I've been watching the HBO series on Rome. I think Kevin McKidd would be a good Wencit
[20:46] <Festil> I LOVE that series.
[20:46] <@KK> Haven't seen that.  We don't get HBO.
[20:46] <Festil> I own both seasons.
[20:46] <@KK> What else has he done?
[20:46] <kelsa> we don't either
[20:46] <Festil> Kevin McKidd...which character?
[20:46] <+Shiral> I don't either, but it should be able to get it on DVD
[20:47] <+Shiral> Vorenus
[20:47] <Festil> Vorenus?
[20:47] <Festil> Hmm..
[20:47] <+Shiral> Lucius Vorenus
[20:47] <Festil> I always saw him being a good Alaric Morgan.
[20:47] * the_Bee doesn't get HBO
[20:47] <+Shiral> Red hair, big chip on his shoulder
[20:47] <@Bynw> gladiator was one of my mom's fav movies
[20:47] <+Shiral> Well, that idea has possibilities, too
[20:47] <@KK> What other roles has he played?
[20:47] <kelsa> who?  Kevin McKidd?
[20:47] <kelric> heheh
[20:47] <+Shiral> I don't know, I've only seen him in this one
[20:47] <Festil> Now James Purefoy...
[20:47] <jemler> after seeing Keira Knightly in Pirates, I think she would make a good Morag or Ariella.
[20:48] <Festil> THAT is a good Wencit.
[20:48] <JastaElf> Ariella, yup...
[20:48] <+Shiral> Too pretty, for Wencit, James Purefoy
[20:48] <@KK> Yup.
[20:48] <+Shiral> But  he might make a good Haldane
[20:48] <+Shiral> Indira Varma, also from Rome would make a good potential Rothana
[20:48] <Festil> Yes!
[20:48] <the_Bee> by the time the movie gets made, maybe he'll be older and less pretty
[20:49] <@KK> I understand she's just completed one on the Duchess of .... Devonshire, I think it was.  She and Diana were related.
[20:49] <@KK> The duchess, not Keira.
[20:49] <+Shiral> That I didn't know
[20:49] <kelsa> Keira?
[20:49] <+Shiral> Knightly
[20:49] <+Shiral> Knightley, that is
[20:49] <kelric> something tells me that after this past weekend,  Derynicon is definitely going to sadly not be on my schedule this year
[20:50] <kelsa> So - is there firm plans to make the movie or are we still speculating?
[20:50] <JastaElf> Oh, Kelric, no... what happened??
[20:50] <+Shiral> Ciaran Hinds as Caesar--he might make a good Allister Cullen
[20:50] <jemler> how about Timothy Dalton as Nigel Haldane?
[20:50] <JastaElf> No living man is good enough to play Nigel.  :)
[20:51] <kelric> just the fact that I had to waste money replacing a blowout that happened on I 65 on Wednsday
[20:51] <JastaElf> OMG... are you OK??
[20:51] <+Shiral> Well we KNOW that Sharon, but SOMEONE will have to try =o)
[20:51] <jemler> we'll have to dig someone up then....
[20:51] <JastaElf> LOL!
[20:51] <+Shiral> Ditto with Duncan for you, I suspect
[20:51] <JastaElf> Oh of course....  LOL!
[20:51] <JastaElf> Liam Neeson might be able to handle Jared McLain.  :)
[20:52] <jemler> Rob Roy!
[20:52] <+Shiral> Now that's an idea I hadn't considered
[20:52] <JastaElf> Absolutely...
[20:52] <Tika> mmmm Liam Neeson...
[20:52] <Tika> :)
[20:52] <@KK> Just watching the wonderful Budweiser commercial with the Clydesdales, and Hank doing his training to mack the hitch.  Priceless!
[20:52] <JastaElf> Oh yeah baby...
[20:52] <@KK> They've had some really great ads, as they usually do in conjunction with the Olympics.
[20:53] <JastaElf> I didn't see the Bud ad... it'll be on YouTube by tomorrow.  :)
[20:53] <@KK> <Why am I not surprised that Jasta has seen and groked on that.
[20:53] <JastaElf> LOL!
[20:53] <ambush> So, who'd be good for Kelson?
[20:53] * JastaElf adores Jared
[20:53] <+Shiral> Unfortunately, they've got me wondering what thatMcDonald's chicken sandwich tastes like, and i've been off fast food for years, now
[20:53] <+Shiral> I've never seen an actor I considered right for Kelson
[20:53] <@KK> The breakfast biscuit with fried chicken?
[20:53] <JastaElf> Araxie would be good for Kelson, Ambush.  *grins*
[20:54] <+Shiral> Southern Chicken
[20:54] <kelsa> I agree, Shiral
[20:54] * +Shiral swats Jasta with a trout
[20:54] <@KK> Yes, Jasta!
[20:54] <ambush> lol Jasta!
[20:54] <ambush> you naughty thing you!
[20:54] <@DesertRose> It's okay, but it's not great, Shiral.
[20:54] <JastaElf> *grins*
[20:54] <+Shiral> Okay, then I won't have to eat one
[20:54] <jemler> Elijah Wood might be too old.
[20:54] <JastaElf> My local McD's has a sign up that they didn't think through: they have the new chicken thing and the new free wifi.
[20:54] <+Shiral> But I've never seen an actor that made me think "that's Kelson!"
[20:54] <JastaElf> Sign says Try Chicken   Free Wifi
[20:54] <JastaElf> LOL!
[20:54] <+Shiral>  Except Michael Praed, and he's too old, now
[20:55] <JastaElf> He might do for Nigel now...
[20:55] <JastaElf> Maybe...
[20:55] <JastaElf> if he's good enough and perfect enough...  *grins*
[20:55] <+Shiral> Hmmmmmmmm, that has possibilites
[20:55] <JastaElf> Not that I have a strong opinion or anything.
[20:55] <kelsa> Michael Praed is awesome! 
[20:55] <ambush> elijah wood: he is too old for Kelson now. and might turn down the part.
[20:55] <the_Bee> Maybe they could cast an ubkbown as Kelson.
[20:55] <kelsa> But too old for Kelson
[20:55] <+Shiral> As I said, Jasta, someone will have to TRY to play Nigel
[20:55] <ambush> lol
[20:55] <JastaElf> Daniel Day Lewis would have made a kick-arse Haldane in his younger days
[20:56] <+Shiral> Billy Boyd might make a good Derry
[20:56] <JastaElf> Ooo! 
[20:56] <@DesertRose> Ooh, yeah.
[20:56] <+Shiral> Oh, I agree, Jasta
[20:56] <JastaElf> Or Dom Monaghan...
[20:56] <ambush> gotta be a natural redhead
[20:56] <+Shiral> Chicken wi fi....
[20:56] <ambush> can't be dyed for Dhugal
[20:56] <ambush> :)
[20:56] <ambush> sorry, dhugal popped into my head now
[20:56] <ambush> :)
[20:56] <+Shiral> That's okay. He does that to me sometimes, too
[20:57] <+Shiral> Dhugal, I mean
[20:57] <JastaElf> Chicken FREE wifi, at that...
[20:57] <+Shiral> Free range Chicken Wifi?
[20:57] <JastaElf> LOL!
[20:57] <jemler> how about Brad Dourif as Gorony
[20:57] <JastaElf> Only bealeton, VA has true chicken-free wifi
[20:57] <+Shiral> Didn't know chickens went online, but okay
[20:57] <ambush> dyed red hair for dhugal would be near blasphemous :)
[20:57] <JastaElf> OMG Jemler, what a thought...!!!
[20:57] <+Shiral> OOOO, that has possibilites, Jemler
[20:57] <kelsa> So - ARE we still just speculating about this movie or has there been a decision made???
[20:57] <+Shiral> Looking just as Grima-ish as possible
[20:57] <ambush> lol
[20:57] <JastaElf> We do this every so often.  :)
[20:58] <+Shiral> BUt speculation is so much fun!
[20:58] <kelsa> Yes - but planning the real thing would be so much more fun!
[20:58] <jemler> i'm trying to think of a good Loris (no pun intended!) :)
[20:58] <the_Bee> by the time the movie gets made, all our suggested cast members will be too old.
[20:58] <@DesertRose> true
[20:58] <+Shiral> For Loris, that actor Ian someone who played the wonderfully awful Francis Urqhart in the House of Cards series
[20:58] <ambush> lol jemler
[20:58] <@KK> Still just speculating, alas.
[20:59] <kelric> back to a page ago,  yes,  I am fine.  I caught the feeling of the blowout almost immediately after it happened and was able to get to the shoulder very quickly.  I just had to waste about 2 hours of time to get it completely fixed
[20:59] <@KK> I think he's dead.
[20:59] <JastaElf> Kelric, I'm glad you're OK!
[20:59] <JastaElf> Sorry about the car tho.
[20:59] <kelsa> who's dead???
[20:59] <jemler> Ian Richardson died last year
[20:59] <@KK> Him.
[20:59] <kelsa> o
[21:00] <JastaElf> What about the guy who played Horatio Hornblower for Derry?
[21:00] <JastaElf> The cute Welshman?
[21:00] <@KK> Oooh.
[21:00] <+Shiral> Well, that would really put a crimp in that idea except for still photography, I guess
[21:00] <+Shiral> Ioann Gruffydd?
[21:00] <kelsa> you know - I have to look up most of these people - I'm so horrible with names!
[21:00] <JastaElf> Yes!!
[21:00] <@KK> Yes!
[21:00] <the_Bee> or the hanging scene ;)
[21:00] <JastaElf> Gruffyd would make SUCH a cute Derry.
[21:01] <+Shiral> BUt too bad about Richardson--I really thought he'd make a good Loris
[21:01] <JastaElf> And he has the intensity and all.
[21:01] <JastaElf> What about Peter O Toole for Loris?
[21:01] <+Shiral> Oh, now...... Maybe!
[21:01] <the_Bee> Isn't he in poor health?
[21:01] <ambush> You know who woulda been the good one for Morgan (maybe, at least looks wise), but is gone now? heath ledger
[21:01] <+Shiral> He could do it beautifully....
[21:02] <+Shiral> Peter O'Toole IS showing his age, alas, but he still has a wonderful, expressive face.
[21:02] <JastaElf> I wanted to play Meraude, but I'm too old now.  :)
[21:02] <+Shiral> Let's start a "Dead People's Cast." =o)
[21:02] <ambush> lol
[21:02] <kelsa> that's sort of depressing...
[21:02] <the_Bee> has o'toole gotten thin enough for Loris?
[21:02] * +Shiral hands Jasta her gardening gloves with a wink
[21:02] <ambush> If he was younger, who would you guys want Sean Connery to play, if anyone?
[21:02] <@KK> That's certainly the way to compose the Dream Cast.
[21:03] <+Shiral> I think so
[21:03] <JastaElf> Donal
[21:03] <+Shiral> Donal Haldane!
[21:03] <JastaElf> LOL!!
[21:03] <ambush> lol
[21:03] <JastaElf> GMTA....
[21:03] <Festil> I'd like to see Ian McKellan cast as Loris.
[21:03] <+Shiral> We STILL think alike Jasta
[21:03] <JastaElf> Yup...
[21:03] <ambush> lol
[21:03] <JastaElf> Ian does play a superb bad guy...
[21:03] <Festil> To the hilt, yeah.
[21:03] <ambush> yeah eh does
[21:03] <@DesertRose> Yeah, he could pull it off quite well, I think.
[21:04] <+Shiral> The Rutger Hauer of the time of LadyHawke would have been perfect as Morgan
[21:04] <jemler> here's a question: Who for Warin de Grey?
[21:04] <JastaElf> What about the Marluk?  And Duke Lionel?  And the Orsal?  who would play them?
[21:04] <the_Bee> especially a bad guy who doesn't think he is a bad guy.
[21:04] <JastaElf> true
[21:04] <ambush> would need a big guy for The Orsal
[21:04] <ambush> and we're talking big
[21:04] <+Shiral> The Marluk would have to be a fair haired, beautiful, but evil actor
[21:04] <jemler> Bishop Hubert!
[21:04] <JastaElf> Jason Issacs
[21:05] <ambush> That works
[21:05] <JastaElf> Marluk=Jason...
[21:05] <+Shiral> Ah...... Yessss......
[21:05] <Festil> Al Marluk wasn't particularly "evil"..
[21:05] <Festil> Just misguided, like most Festils.
[21:05] <JastaElf> just obsessed and murderous...  ;)
[21:05] <@DesertRose> Jason Isaacs also does a good bad guy.
[21:05] <+Shiral> Not according to his point of view, no
[21:05] <Festil> Now, Wencit...
[21:05] <Festil> THAT'S evil.
[21:05] <JastaElf> Wencit loved playing evil
[21:05] <JastaElf> And was good at it.  *grins*
[21:05] <+Shiral> And I think Kevin McKidd would do Wencit VERY well
[21:05] <ambush> Hmmmmm
[21:05] <@KK> Not even misguided; just focused according to a different perspective.
[21:05] <+Shiral> They'd have to find a good Rhydon of Eastmarch too
[21:05] <JastaElf> What about Kevin and Bronwyn?
[21:06] <JastaElf> And Richenda?
[21:06] <kelsa> what about Jason Isaacs?  He plays a GREAT bad guy
[21:06] <+Shiral> And Jehana?
[21:06] <JastaElf> Kelsa, we just cast Jason as the Marluk.  *grins*
[21:06] <+Shiral> Francesca Annis would have been perfect for Jehana 15 years ago
[21:07] <JastaElf> OMG yes...
[21:07] <ambush> there would need to be a very, very, very good actress for Jehana
[21:07] <kelsa> ooops - guess I'm behind - spending too much time looking up actors names... sigh
[21:07] <JastaElf> LOL!
[21:07] <JastaElf> Is OK
[21:07] <+Shiral> Richenda.......And of course, Sofiana....
[21:07] <ambush> Cause, I mean, there's a lot of character depth there :)
[21:07] <+Shiral> Polly Walker might be all right as Jehana
[21:07] <ambush> And, by gods, there better be a good Araxie.
[21:07] <+Shiral> At least in terms of looks
[21:07] <ambush> :)
[21:07] <+Shiral> Too true, Ambush
[21:08] <JastaElf> Would be a lot easier to do this in CGI like Final Fantasy: Advent Children
[21:08] <jemler> Here's a thought for Cardiel - Ronny Cox. He always played the characters you loved to hate in Stargate SG-1, he played Senator Kinsey. He might play a good guy for once.
[21:08] <ambush> lol
[21:08] <ambush> true, Jasta
[21:08] <+Shiral> She can't just be a medieval Bimbo
[21:08] <the_Bee> who's the actress who plays Addison (McDreamy's ex) in Private practice and Grey's anatom?  She looks the way I imagine Jehana.
[21:08] <JastaElf> Cuz there's no one cute enough to play Rufus ShinRa in real life.  :)
[21:08] <+Shiral> Rufus Sewell! He'd be a good Brion
[21:08] <ambush> lol Jasta!
[21:08] <ambush> i think i've found a kindred spirit in the FF world :)
[21:09] <JastaElf> Chancellor Palpatine might make a good Archbishop of Rhemuth.  Corrigan.
[21:09] <JastaElf> Why yes, ambush...
[21:09] <@DesertRose> Ian McDiarmid?
[21:09] <JastaElf> I write FF:AC fanfics too.
[21:09] <Festil> Ian McDiarmid?
[21:09] <+Shiral> I don't know him... But I'll take your word for it
[21:09] <JastaElf> Yes, that's the one DR
[21:09] <Festil> Ah, DR beat me to it.
[21:09] <+Shiral> Yes, Jasta dabbles in fanfic, now and then. =o)
[21:09] <jemler> Addison is played by Kate Walsh
[21:09] <@DesertRose> GMTA!
[21:10] <@Bynw> Jasta is a kindred spirit to a lot of people
[21:10] <JastaElf> Aww...  *blush*
[21:10] <@DesertRose> JastaElf is awesome!
[21:10] <ambush> lol
[21:10] <JastaElf> Aww!!!!!
[21:10] * JastaElf blushes and scuffs feet
[21:11] <jemler> she's blushing!
[21:11] <JastaElf> I am indeed...  :)
[21:11] <+Shiral> She could power half Virginia, better hook her up to a generator
[21:11] <JastaElf> Aww, gosh...  :)
[21:12] <@KK> I've been distracted by the men's gymnastics floor exercise finals.  Awesome!
[21:12] <jemler> how about Matt Dallas {Kyle XY) as Kelson
[21:12] <+Shiral> So cute when she looks like a tomato
[21:13] <+Shiral> Well no wonder! We can't compete with those muscular cute guys. =o)
[21:13] <JastaElf> *grins*
[21:13] <+Shiral> Araxie will need to be tall and elegant
[21:13] <jemler> you should see me in those tight suits. You'ld have nightmares for a month!
[21:13] <JastaElf> Me too... not made for spandex...
[21:13] <kelsa> Matt isn't what I pictured for Kelson - but then, actors seldom match...
[21:13] <+Shiral> Is that a promise or a threat, Jemler? =o)
[21:14] <JastaElf> That's why we need CGI
[21:14] <jemler> i promise to threaten you :)
[21:14] <JastaElf> LOL!
[21:14] <+Shiral> Good answer
[21:14] <+Shiral> I'm not a spandex candidate eitiher
[21:14] <kelsa> it would be easier, but probably wouldn't do as well in the theatre
[21:14] <jemler> it happens sometimes
[21:14] <@KK> I'm going to have to sign off.  This is just too intense--the gymnastics, I mean.  You guys are intense, too, but in a different way--but these guys only do it every 4 yeaars!
[21:14] <+Shiral> LOL
[21:14] <ambush> lol
[21:15] <@DesertRose> Okay, KK.  Thanks for dropping in on us!
[21:15] <the_Bee> nighters, KK
[21:15] <ambush> great seeing ya again, KK
[21:15] <ambush> :)
[21:15] <Festil> Take care, KK
[21:15] <+Shiral> See, I knew we couldn't compete with Gymnasts
[21:15] <kelsa> Nice to chat with you again, KK
[21:15] <+Shiral> Night, KK
[21:15] <@KK> See you next week--but not the week after, as Scott and I will be at Dragoncon in Atlanta.
[21:15] <ambush> nite kk
[21:15] <jemler> just like me!
[21:15] <+Shiral> HOpe the proofing and pantry-ing goes well
[21:15] <jemler> nite kk
[21:15] <+Shiral> Thanks for poppping in
[21:15] <ambush> KK, i'm jealous
[21:15] <@KK> Me, too.
[21:15] <@DesertRose> Night KK
[21:15] <ambush> that's my stomping ground!
[21:15] <ambush> :P
[21:15] <kelsa> Night KK
[21:15] <+Shiral> I'm not jealous about Hotlanta in August!
[21:15] <@KK> Take care, all.
[21:15] <the_Bee> thanks for coming, KK
[21:16] <ambush> lol
[21:16] <+Shiral> Enjoy the gymnasts.
[21:16] <JastaElf> Night KK!
[21:16] * @KK steps onto her Portal, waves good night, and disappears in a shower of green sparkles.
[21:16] <ambush> I meant D*Con being my stomping ground
[21:16] <ambush> :)
[21:16] <+Shiral> Oh
[21:16] <+Shiral> :P
[21:16] <@KK> It's actually been pretty mild for summer, this year.  Today was delightful.
[21:16] <@KK> I dare not hope that Atlanta will be the same.
[21:16] <ambush> I've been the pet of more than a few bunnies there over the course of my career as a runner at Dcon:)
[21:17] <+Shiral> Wow, are those green sparklies talking?
[21:17] <JastaElf> LOL!
[21:17] <ambush> lol
[21:17] <+Shiral> Scotty, are you beaming her  up, or not? =o)
[21:17] <@KK> Should also point out thata green sparkles are a feature of this site, but do not occur in Gwynedd.
[21:17] <ambush> rofl
[21:18] <JastaElf> *giggles*
[21:18] <+Shiral> True. They just blink out of sight in Gwynedd
[21:18] <+Shiral> Nor do portals produce blue steam
[21:18] <@KK> But Portals did descend from Transporters, de-technologized.
[21:18] <ambush> or make wooshing noises ;)
[21:18] <@KK> I was going to mention that, Shiral :-)
[21:19] <+Shiral> Well if they do, that's when you know you need Transfer Portal Maintenance, Ambush
[21:19] <@KK> No wooshing noises, either.
[21:19] <ambush> lol
[21:19] <+Shiral> Unless of course, a Mage was trying to do something spectacular
[21:19] <@KK> I <will> leave now.  Nighters, everyone.
[21:19] <+Shiral> Night, KK
[21:19] * @KK Quit (Quit: )
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)
