Oh Doughnut, I feel for you "The most adorable part of Freddie for me was the way he used his hands when he spoke. So expressive. I sometimes watch his interviews just to watch his hands lol. Does this sound weird lol . " This does not sound weird :)))).

In the interview with Rudi (1982) Freddie was speaking about "visual theatrics" and using his hands (fortunately free from the cigaret or something else at that moment). I have been watching for this moment again and again.

When you read anything, do you see a picture of he thing/person/place/situation whatever in your head ?

I understand from people I've spoken to about it that this is the norm, but I don't do that! If I try really hard I can summon up a sketchy picture in my head of what someone or place is meant to look like but it's totally unnatural to me and is hard work.

Is there anyone else like me in jail aspect?

My Dad says e doesn't know how I enjoy a book if I don't picture it, but I don't know an different.

I totally lack imagination!

So,. Straw poll folks! Do you naturally envision what you are reading ??


I usually imagine things, places, people when I'm reading about them. And I always thought it was the same for everyone. But I accidentally watched this video some time ago, and it turns out not everyone is able to do this! It was really mind-blowing to learn this, and to watch how the girl in the video describes the process of drawing (she's an artist who can't see pictures in her head!)

Now I know the name for what
I have re my lack of imagination! Aphantasia!

I'm not alone in the world.

Thanks, matey!

Doughnut, it's just a blank unless I really try hard. Sometimes I cheat and think of them (I won't say"imagine" that would be too strong a word for it) them as an actor or actress.

It's too long winded for me to bother to try to conjur up the images it'd take forever to read if I tried.

I'm used to this 'handicap' it's like colour blindness. I don't know any different.

Hi Peeps

This flashed up on my YouTube notifications from George m I think there might be the odd scene we haven't seen in previous Garden Lodge videos.

Sweet Freddie in his lovely home. Makes me ache with nostalgia and hollow that he was taken way too young. God bless you, Freddie.

If in God's house there are many mansions, I hope that yours is your beloved Garden Lodge filled with your lovely pussy cats and the friends and family but who have crossed over to you. You deserve paradise.

Darn - I missed the discussion of everyone's favorite Freddie body part- hope you don't mind but I would like to add my Freddie fetish- I love the upper cut boxing move he makes with his arm- and even better when there is no shirt covering his muscles- second- his boxing shoes on his feet- to each his own I guess

Chevy- I can see why you like that blonde cutie, Roger, and no one mentioned John- certainly had that shy irresistible look:)

Freddiedarling- I remember seeing parts of tat video- felt so bad seeing Joe Fanelli sick in bed- and was that Barbara V at the beginning?
