TGiF 3.4.16 (edited)

The various articles and Google alerts this week on Michael Fassbender has been repeating the same irrelevant tidbits all week. As if there was absolutely nothing of real value to write about him. Michael was on triple duty the past four months and it must have been a relief for him after the Oscars ended Sunday night. He has put awards season 2015-2016 behind him and getting on with his brilliant career. As Michael is still filming The Snowman in a new location in Norway, soon enough afterwards, we'll see Michael sporting blond hair again as he prepares to head to Australia to film Alien Covenant as the scheming scene stealing David the android.

If you plan on participating in this year's birthday fundraiser to support The Bike Experience, we could use your donations now. The FF Just Giving page has been open since Monday and we're off to a quiet start. Once people start seeing other people donate, it encourages others. So please start giving soon, this is a group effort for an excellent charity in honor of our favorite actor.

A few weeks ago, I was browsing the Etsy website to find something cool to buy and use as the grand prize for the fundraiser. To my utter surprise, I saw a picture of a face cast of Michael Fassbender. An extremely rare thing that exist, and as a huge Fassinator, I just had to have it. I'm not some mere fan who just fancies him, I truly admire Michael Fassbender and enjoy his work and it is so much fun following his career and supporting him. So to own an artifact like a life cast of Michael's face (which was made in 2011 and used for X-Men First Class and Prometheus) is the ultimate item a fan of his can own. After waiting for a spell, the parcel from Ireland finally arrived today and it was wrapped carefully and I am now in possession of a life cast of my favorite actor.

The Silver Shamrock Props Etsy store has some great face casts, but I got the best one in stock. Joe has the master and mold to make copies per requests.

I'm glad you're receiving the life cast of Michael's face.
It's more beautiful than on the website's photo.

They are not done filming The Snowman, they were done filming in Bergen last week but they have since moved to a new and last location in Rjukan.

I understand why you bought that but it's scary looking to me, it looks like someone killed him and chopped his head off, I would have nightmares everynight just having that in my house, it gives me the creeps just thinking about it.

@Unknown, thanks for the correction about the Snowman.

I totally understand what you're saying about the mask cast. But it's really a piece of art, and piece of art of a most handsome face. I'm not going to hang it up right now, I'll just tuck it away until my big move later this year to California. I'll find the perfect spot for it. At the least, it'll be a great conversation piece.
