I’m an addictive note-taker. I’m constantly jotting down thoughts and ideas, quotes, random facts, etc. It’s funny sometimes when I go back through my notebooks, trying to decipher what I meant or why I thought something was important enough to write down.
did you write this ode to my hair?
The other day I came across a folder from my Christian Bale days. First, it was odd because I had actual pages from magazines and newspapers that I had stashed in there for keepsakes- everything is online and bookmarked nowadays.
do you have a magazine stash, Guy?
and second, because I had some notes to myself about how to perform certain functions on the fan-forum I frequented back then. I had written out in detail how to save a photo and post it on the forum, how to use the quote button, how to bookmark something; things I can do without a second thought now.
URL, IMG…maybe you should be writing this down
While most people would just Google those things, I didn’t know about the wonders of search engines. So I spent forever looking through back posts in the technical section of the forum instead. What? I could have just asked someone, you say? but then they would know I didn’t know what I was doing!
I don’t think I can be with someone who can’t plaster my face on every visible surface
I don’t have that problem anymore, I just admit that I don’t know and ask-it saves so much time! unlike my prefaces….
So Anyways…something that I also found in those notes was how to make a signature on the forum and what I wanted mine to consist of, including my choices for “The Keepers List”. A Keepers List is a fun little thing that fans do where they chose particular belongings or attributes of a character (or the actor himself) that they want to be the guardian of.
if you want Paul’s socks, you’re going to have to go through me!
So for example, my three choices for Christian Bale were: Trevor’s Post-It notes, Dieter’s mirror, and Christian’s furrowed brow. Trevor was a character from the movie “The Machinist”, which dealt with a man who didn’t know what was reality and what wasn’t so he left notes to guide himself- something I could definitely see myself doing!
I have the biggest sword of all the Dwarves? HOLA!
Dieter was a character from the movie “Rescue Dawn” which was about a prisoner in a war camp, the small mirror playing an important part in his survival.
looks like Nori might be envious of a small mirror…
and I think anyone who has seen Christian Bale in interviews or photoshoots has noticed that he often furrows his brow while thinking or answering a question, so my last choice reflects my fondness for that habit.
furrowed brow, you say?
If we applied a Keeper’s List to Richard, what would you choose to be the guardian of?
Ricky Deeming’s black leather jacket perhaps?
Mulligan’s swing at the playground?
Let’s share our choices in the comments- it’s first come first served, so try not to repeat picks and let’s limit it to three choices per person. My picks are going to be:
Harry’s red scarf
and Richard’s stride
Okay, Your Turn!
