    When I was 14, my parents decided to take the family on a bicycling vacation through Ireland. Lunch was usually cheese, crackers, apples and barley water, purchased at a local store. We filled our canteens in streams, but sometimes we had to strain out the peat with our teeth. My father thought the graveyards were a great place to picnic, until one where they did not bury the dead deep enough, and we ate with the smell of decay in our nostrils. I hope they buried them deeper in the graveyard McLauclan picnicked.

    My high school drinks were pernod (a Hemingway thing) and Silver Clouds with the skinny straws. The Twin Peaks era was G&Ts. By Portlandia I'd settled into wine. Currently in a beer phase, but the next wine bottle I open with be Pursued by Bear, in Kyle's honor. One must support the arts.

      Look at skin, not hair. Kyle looks younger - his skin looks firmer and he has fewer lines.

      I think Kyle looks younger than Stephen. He might be using a filter but his skin looks amazing. I'm glad Stephen is letting his hair go silver.

      I respect the sentiment, it‘s beautiful. But I always wondered, wouldn’t truly unconditional love be kinda unhealthy? Shouldn’t there be at least some basic conditions like „don‘t become abusive“ and „don‘t become a mass murderer“?

      @James Hill Someone being racist to the Cultures who created Systemic Racism for profit? Well, that is Karmic - isn't it? Actually, my point has nothing to do with race; and I am also white and an Immigration Activist. This has to do with getting Privileged White Immigrants a work permit they usually do not have to pay for (paid by Studio or Production Company) and a path to Citizenship in 5 to 6 years (without really understanding what it leans to be American) to take away a role from an American Actor who can do it better. There are exceptions; but often the best Actors don't usually get these parts and it is refreshing to see a Classic American Actor like Kyle MacLaughlin as FDF when in the past 30 years these roles have been increasingly going to British or Australian Actors whether they are good in the role or not. Usually they do the best they can do, but it leaves a flawed taste in one's mouth. Hollywood could do some real good with their cadre of Immigratuon Lawyers --- train Dreamers and Undocumented people in the Film & TB industry and legalizae them. These valuable people often take decades to become legalized and get on a path to Citizenshop. Dreamers are legal (and have to pay greedy Attorneys every 2 years to remain on the program); but Undocumented are not. Also they are trying not to get deported as soft, little Benedict Cucumberbin gets red carpet treatment, respect, fame --- and interviewed by TV personalities like Stephen Colbert. These Privileged Immigrants are not labeled criminals for trying to work hard and feed their families as Undocumented., Migrants and Refugees are. Maybe more People should be raising these inequalities in the broken, biased US Immgration system. Before you call someone Racist --- see their point first. PS: For the British Royal Family to experience racism for hundreds of years instead of constantly being fellated with praise and opportunites --- now that would be just karma. That being said I do have a heart and practice Love andam rational. To hate somebody is not the answer; but to point out what is broken in the US Immigration system and are attotudes towards different categories of Immigrants are Nobody is taking landscaping, factory, nanny, construction, fieldwork, janitorial, day labor, etc, and other blue collar jobs away from Americans. Americans can do those jobs if they want to. However, there is a huge problem with privileged Immigrants (usually White; not always) taking jobs both in front of the camera and behind the camera from Americans. That is the truth.
