Connery DID do Diamonds are Forever. It was his last Bond exept for the 'Never Say Never Again' oine off which was pretty much a remake of Thunderball under another name, and Barbara Carrera was her usual scrumptuous self.
Moore did Line and Let Die. And several more of course.
I don't think Dalton did such a bad job, the Moore films were getting pretty campy and self-satirizing.
And Lazenby did just fine.
On balance I'd say Moore was the least authentic and tended to ham things up.

Where Sean Connery succeeded as the best Bond where the others failed is that he is one of those rare individuals who is both a 'man's man' and a 'ladies man' at the same time and in equal proportions. His humble background (dirt poor) and his lack of affectation also comes through and adds to his appeal. Roger Moore wasn't bad but unlike Connery, Roger Moore came across as a kind of pampered upper-class snob, he was also very much a 'ladies man' rather than a 'man's man'.

It's funny -- many fans of the Bond books consider ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE to be the best film treatment of an Ian Fleming novel. (CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG notwithstanding.) And Lazenby, who was not an actor, did indeed make a pretty decent job of it.

I always found the movie with George Lazenby very interesting (On Her Majesty's Secret Service). He almost seemed more human in the role to me...although I am sure the ending of the move played a part in that.
I've always had a thing for Diana Rigg (watching her over and over in The Avengers cemented it for me), so this movie was doubly attractive.
I also have wondered if he might not have surpassed Connery if he had done the other two movies he was originally signed for (Diamonds are Forever and Live and Let Die) and continued...
Timothy Dalton was the low end of the totem pole, however, Roger Moore did well. I like Pierce Brosnan, but something about his portrayal just does not feel right (I thought he was perfect in Remington Steele).
And, lest we not forget, Casino Royale is truly a gem with a great cast...it is such a hoot and has tons of beautiful women as well.

Who doesn't indeed? Sean Connery was undoubtedly the best Bond by far.
Sean Connery's knighthood poses a few issues however.
Being the fierce Scots Nationalist that he is (this fact prevented him being put on the honours list for many years) does he recognise his own knighthood?
Does he recognise the current Queen Elizabeth II (actually Queen Elizabeth I of Scotland as the original QEI was never actually crowned Queen of Scotland) as his legitimate queen or does he recognise the Jacobite line of succession?
According to the Jacobite line the current rightful king is King Francis II (aka Franz Bonaventura Adalbert Maria von Wittelsbach).
Or perhaps he is a Republican Nationalist in which case his title would be repugnant to him.
His acceptance of the knightood, does influence the views of Scotsmen and women on such issues (believe it or not).
Anyway, hypocrite or not, I like Sean Connery and he'd make a damn fine President of Scotland.

Wormwood likes Shirley Bassey and Sir Sean C. era James Bond.

Love is not something that can be recieved as it can only be generated from within oneself. Neither is it a commodity that can be given. It is an internal response to how you choose to view a set of given circumstances. It's all a matter of self-control.
If someone does something to you that you decide is unpleasant you can either 'be' angry by choosing to associate yourself with the feelings of anger that arise, or you can disassociate yourself from the anger by taking a step back and viewing the situation dispassionately and impartially (the anger then subsides). The latter course of action will do you less personal harm.

I don't need love, because what good would love do me, Deva never lies to me... and when love is gone it lingers on
Deva is forever, forever, forever

Now tell us what you really think.
Seriously, fear not. When the false gods go, the GODS arise.

A parasite that I should have known was bad news, whom I should have known was nothing more than trash, well for some reason, after he had dumped me for another girl who was more conveniently located (and who turned out to be a psycho when he dumped her) I kept on talking to him. Now that he was "free" again, he said he would meet me at my favorite gothic/fetish club this past saturday. And had confirmed that at 5pm that same evening that he was attending.
I was really looking forward to and psyched up about seeing him again because I still had "those feelings" for the pig.
Well, the fucker didn't show up. I waited and waited and even had rearranged a possible meeting with another guy that I'm interested in to meet Mr. Trash.
But lo and behold, also that very evening, I had smuggled in a water bottle in my pocketbook filled with Deva 70. And as if always seems to go for me, everyone that had expressed interest in tasting the real thing had failed to show. I even had sugar cubes. I ordered an overpriced bottle of water from the club, drank it down a bit, snuck in the bathroom and lo and behold, I had myself a nice greenish white pacifier in a Deer Park bottle.
But the biggest blessing from the green fairy was that in being able to think so clearly, (albeit things were moving quite faster than my head and everything had quite a spin) I was able to forumlate my thoughts enough to go outside, get on my cell phone at 2:30 in the morning and let that son-of-a-bitch know how I really feel! It was to an answering machine, but hell, at least I got it out. I'm usually quite reserved and silent in regards to such things.
Thank you, Deva 70.
And fuck you, Parasite Trash.
