Alan Rickman is good in everything.

I like him in every movie I've seen him in, although I haven't seen them all. And there are so many bad movies out there, that don't have Alan Rickman in them.

And so I figured, if he's great in every movie, why not every band? Why not TV shows, or movies, that sadly didn't benefit from his greatness?

I've sent these out to friends, who said they were going to post them; with apologies to you, if you've seen them before, and of course with apologies to the luminous Alan Rickman:

He's an easy man to misread. Have you heard his more sensitive side?

Haha, I've seen the interweb putting Nic Cage into everything, but not Rickman. Pretty hilarious. For some reason "Dogma" and his "lack of definition," I believe is how it was put, was the first thing I thought of when I read his name.

Crap. I had managed to forget Dogma. Mmm. His pedestal is shrinking, but we'll always have Prince Of Thieves.

If I could have anyone narrate a documentary about me, it would be Alan Rickman in his voice from Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.
