aregularfrankyfan-timcurry asked: (I'm assuming you probably saw Dori Hartley's recent post about Tim memories) HE WAS PRANCING AROUND FLAPPING HIS ARMS LIKE WINGS. AND SHE DIDNT GIVE AN EXPLANATION AS TO WHY. I was really wanting an explanation but it would probably have been along the lines of "he's Tim fuckin Curry he can do what he wants" Silly Timmy.
Yes. Some might say I was responsible for her little out-pouring.
I imagine he was doing his ‘lesser spotted throat pecker’ - ala live performances of Birds Of A Feather.
It’s funny - she was all like ‘Yes, true’ and I was like babe - of all the things said about TC - him flapping his invisible wings and cawing is one of the most believable things I’ve ever EVER heard.
He’s such an idiot.
jewelsnndrugs asked: your blog makes me so happy you have no idea
Well I am very pleased to hear that! Thank you!
And if it makes you happy because it has ridiculous amounts of TC’s face on it - then please be assured I have a very very VERY good idea how happy you are. :) x
You, Sir. You.
You never cease to amaze and simultaneously infuriate me.
miseryismanifold asked: If you had to choose, what are your top 5 Tim Curry roles? Sorry to torture you, love! I'm quite curious!
I was lucky enough to see Tim perform live as Arthur several times with my own eyes - so he holds a really special place in my heart. His Arthur was so charming and lovable; he brought a sense of realness and vulnerability to the character which I’ve never seen any of his successors achieve. I love the fact Tim was clearly having a ball during his time with Spamalot - in photographs from back then he’s just glowing and full of happiness. He was just sort of ‘back where he belongs’ - at the top of his game on a theatrical stage.
Frank N Furter
It may seem a really obvious choice. But I don’t think you can truly be a TC fan and not admit (no matter how snobby you’d like to be) that his portrayal of Frankie is an absolute masterclass in acting perfection. And well. It’s Frank. Nah mean? Hello. I could probably write a thesis on the reasons WHY Frank is such an phenomenal creation that only Mr Curry could have created and thus why I believe he is solely responsible for Frank N Furter being catapulted into pop culture iconography. So I’ll just mumble something about his legs and leave it at that.
Long John Silver
I think Long John is one of Tim’s finest character interpretations and he gives an absolutely outstanding performance. He’s surrounded by Muppets and he STILL manages to steal the show. Plus he is so undeniably, achingly attractive as LJ. It hurts a bit. Why didn’t it lead to more amazing and thoroughly deserved films/projects/roles? Ugh. Anyways. Let’s not even begin that conversation.
I could watch Over The Top on a continual loop for the rest of my life and I’m pretty sure I would never tire of it. I absolutely ADORE Tim as Simon - his performance is utterly breathtaking. On first glance It may seem like there’s not much to a part like Simon - but his timing, the characterisation, the confidence he just exudes in the role - it’s just heart-stopping. Plus he looks REALLY pretty. *cough*
Tim’s performance in the inevitably doomed My Favourite Year really is something else. I never saw the show live - but I have seen it - and every time he walks out on the stage it’s like the show suddenly comes alive. He absolutely and undeniably wipes the floor with the rest of the cast. It’s when watching him performing a part like Swann; playing someone older than he was, dancing, singing, doing comedy, portraying a real and quite complex character in such a frothy piece; you really appreciate just what an incredible all-round performer he is. I was listening to the soundtrack yesterday and it really upsets me that he didn’t win the Tony. He deserved it SO much. He was working his absolute balls off in what was ultimately a sinking ship.
sweetspicycurry asked: Hello Lovely source of wonderful stuff about Tim (that make me happy) :).. I was wondering if there is any interview in which Tim talks about Me and My Girl.. Thank you!!
Are you wanting print stuff or actual video interviews? There are quite a few of both. Let me know and I’ll put some links together :) The videos are on YouTube though - I don’t have anything special! x
Remember that time Tim looked ridiculously, achingly attractive as a greasy overweight Italian with a slight Russian accent?
