"I just want to tell you all how happy I am to be back in the studio, making a picture again! You don’t know much I’ve missed all of you.... You see, this is my life. It always will be! There’s nothing else. Just us, and the cameras, and those wonderful people out there in the dark. All right, Mr. de Mille. I’m ready for my closeup."
Norma Desmond in the last lines of Sunset Boulevard
The close-up is my forte, my raison d'etre, at least according to Mrs. Peeps and her trusty Olympus. But there's a lot more to being a star than just close-ups. Encores, for example. To illustrate: Grandma Mr. Peeps went home today. Then she returned. See? Grandma Mr. Peeps made an encore.
I think the encore is a pretty interesting concept. I myself am always preparing for my encore.
Brava! Brava, indeed.
