Related -- At Netflix: Colosseum: A Gladiator's Story - 2003 NR 57 minutes -- Russell Crowe fails to make an appearance in this searing documentary, but it's arresting moviemaking nonetheless as viewers journey through Roman history to a time when gladiators battled each other at the emperor's whim. The story centers around Verus, a gladiator who rose to stardom but still lived his life enslaved, and for whom freedom was the ultimate triumph.

From Steph: 'I watched an episode of Police Rescue, the ABC program that aired in the 1990s. Police Rescue was made by the same production company that makes Rescue and both have the same premise. Maybe it was special guest star Russell Crowe's bromance with Gary Sweet but this was Australian rescue drama at its most mesmerising. The authentic action was a vehicle for the real drama of the characters' lives. It was a time when alpha males hit the sauce, not the gym. PS: Episode still watchable on Youtube"

Extra -30 Greatest Summer Movie Quotes of All Time - Thanks, Allison

It marks the day in 1776 when the Continental Congress approved the Declaration of Independence from Great Britain. The document was approved and signed on July 2, and was formally adopted on July 4; John Adams always felt that the Second of July was America's true birthday, and wrote to his wife, Abigail, that the date "will be celebrated, by succeeding Generations, as the great anniversary Festival." He envisioned "Pomp and Parade ... Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other." He reportedly refused to appear at annual Fourth of July celebrations for the rest of his life, in protest. He died on July 4, 1826, the 50th anniversary of the Declaration's adoption — as did Thomas Jefferson, who had written most of the document. - From The Writer's Almanac

From Russell:

Hey Mary,

On August 3rd and 4th tunes from the Crowe/Doyle songbook will be played at an Indoor Garden Party at the LSPU ( Long Shoreman's Protective Union) Hall in St.John's Newfoundland. Due to scheduling restrictions, these are likely to be the only shows we do this year.
They will be very casual evenings of songs and stories.
We have a host of special guests including Danielle Spencer, Scott Grimes, Kevin Durand and Size2Shoes.

More details including booking information available soon

West Stars line up to make Winton movies -- "...The potentially great Winton adaptation that got away is Dirt Music, which fell apart when Heath Ledger - widely regarded as a natural for the part of Luther Fox - moved on to play The Joker in The Dark Knight. Crowe has declared his intention of playing the emotionally-scarred poacher and musician and is reportedly writing songs for the movie." - Thanks, Caliope
