Lily, I remember watching you when I was a kid ( I'm 42). Just wanted you to know every time the microwave is done I have to go, "one ringy dingy...and so on". Thanks for the fun! Tim
Love everything thing you do!
I have loved your work ever since. Now I am loving your character on Grace and Frankie. I haven't had time to watch all the episodes yet, but slowly catching up. Lily, you make Frankie so lovable, and deep with her relationship with Grace, Sol and their kids. But I am going to admit here, one of the reasons I am posting is in the hope that Allyson Fanger will choose some of my hand made jewelry for Frankie to wear in season 3.
Dear Lily,, I'm a 57 year old woman on the other side of the world. I've never written a fan letter in my life and I'm not starting now. this is something different. It's a totally heartfelt person-to-person communication. You in Laugh In for a thoughtful, poetry writing, readerly teenager was a shot of absolute hilarity in a pretty serious life. I am still a proud snorker. But when I saw you in Grace and Frankie (from a sound point of view it should be the other way around but I suppose that was never going to happen:/ - anyway, what a sensational ensemble - but it was you I related to. I've been corporate and stressed, relate to the 'Grace world', but Frankie is where I began and where I am now. Talk about resonate with a character, but Frankie really just felt like you. And Grace like Jane. That's why it works. It's a true dynamic, not a manufactured one. But you actually changed things. I looked for yam lube when you talked about it. Couldn't find anything. By the time the next series came around, google search results were a totally different story. I wanted your recipe to make my own but had to make do with a tube'o lube from the US. Now available in zAustralia. The peyote (growing it), the weed (smoked for 40 years while being a competent human being. You pulled a bong like a champion. Respect sister, It was unbelievable to see it all on a TVs show. Groundbreaking. Anyway, when I saw your press conference today, my love for your fabulously genuine characters was totally validated. You will make a difference here too. I'm in the fight against one of the worlds biggest coal mines being cranked up off the Great Barrier Reef. I imagined myself above the Standing Rock protectors, blowing my warm breath to ease the cold. I saw nest day huge loads of firewood being delivered. It's so true that we are all connected, and that it's time to stand up four ourselves and our beautiful planet.. I can feel things building. People are realising and passionately caring, and what you did today will start a cascade in a place where hollow can be replaced by meaningful. . So, while I could talk about many things,, I'm just writing because I felt such a blast of love for you, for the integrity of you, I had to tell you.🌎
Hi Lily and Jane, Can you post some pictures of two of your L.A. homes that you owned in the past ? That would be your blue house in West Hollywood described in the 1977 Time magazine cover story and the home once owned by W.C. Fields that you painted pink. Also some pictures of your 1955 Dodge Royal Lancer. Thank you.
I feel such a relief that 2017th is soon to come, ever since I heard the news of Lily Tomlin getting some special award next January I`ve regain some hope towards humanity. I spoke about it (and somebody recorded it) during an evening in which we were having what ended up being called the "Jane Wagner/Lily Tomlin cup of coffee " (this is a whole other story, also recorded ) My use of English is not good, (sorry for that) therefore somebody made a transcription of the whole thing to make it easier on the listeners --If any. Also sorry for the audio quality. Hope you enjoy and agree! here is the audio link: https://soundcloud.com/user-55474030/on-why-i-feel-hopeful-towards-humanity-knowing-lily-tomlin-will-get-the-sags-in-early-2017th/s-u8xOh and here is the transcription text (hope it fits) ok, so whats next? oh yes, so what got us here in the first place. oh this recordings are gonna be so nice to hear to, with all this beautiful and harmonious sounds in the background, with all of this cars, and sirens, and... anyhow.... next time we should go make this some where else... but... whats was... ... oh yes actually yes i feel this way. they wanna know about why I... o this thing I´ve said this i have said that I felt, and still do feel hopeful for the 2017th to come , 2017 to come, because I do believe that 2016 hasn´t been one of our best, or greatest years in humanity and universe I believe. Who knows... somebody will know later on.., Or perhaps it was,i don´t know. Perhaps we needed this chaos, to really stand up for good things and get on the betterness in all of our actions, and decisions particularly. So i would say that yes I feel hopeful and, and happy to have found out ,just found out.. find out... a few days ago, or a few hours ago, that Lily Tomlin is to be nominated for an award. A big award, i believe it is the SAGs award or whatever, I do not pay that much attention to awards, but I feel happy to know that we can, as human kind, make better elections in our lives. And that is why this award for Lily has moved so much in me regarding this next year to come, which is... Listen I am from Colombia, this country that has, yes, Colombia, this country that voted NO to PEACE, and I am talking to you, which are people from this country whom elected and voted, in its majority from the voters, because a lot of people didn´t voted, which is sad that it´s still happening in this world, ahhh,... from a country that has just elected Donald Trump as their president, as their líder. And it is a huge thing, ah, also for us, because, and for anyone in the world, uhm.. as everything that happens anywhere, you know.. And then you have some people in the UK whom voted out on Brexit, and then... which... I don´t fully understand the hole situation, but the concept that I get from it, is in the same line of this other elections that we have taken, and non taken. ah, because just look at Brazil this Dilma situation, how they kicked her out of chair. These politic, chauvinistic world, you know... and Mexico, that kind of corruption and violence and I, don´t know, I cant, get a hold on the hole that ´s happening, i mean, jajaj, i just enjoy listening at Liliana Felipe and Jesusa Rodriguez, and i just get a kick out of it, because what else can we do, and then... you see ... we can keep on recollecting all this choices that we, as human kind have been making through this year, and life perhaps; and it is astonishing you know, to evidence in this numbers, which are relevant, since they enforce some sort of actions to lead, meaning, Donald Trump, will be the president of the United States, and we voted no in Peace, so the hole process changes. Perhaps it gets better perhaps not, ... but what I´ve really take from this is how, ... how damaging our, I quote. "collective decisions", have been taken us. I feel there still so much little awareness. I mean , jesus, so much understanding to do for the human kind you know,! And I do celebrate and I do enjoy getting the news of these Great Lily Tomlin been nominated, or being granted with this special award, or whatever award. every award she should have! and because it makes me feel, that this time... we started the year voting right, you know electing right. I don´t know how this hole process of getting this particular award goes, but I do believe that more than one people have taken this decision. and in the process of it I aspire that they´ve acknowledge and elevated some relevant stuff, or at least to some part of the "community" that is watching to, and that is paying attention to the transformative, and the impactful people, or personalities. so yes i do feel kind of a relief knowing that we start the year making better decisions. ahh...so... yes... go girl! jjajja I don´t know, I feel it´s wonderful, and i celebrate it, and.I...I will talk it as much as possible because I think it´s such an amazing thing.. and.... I was writing something the other day, and I was thinking how amazing it would be to have Jane and Lily, Jane Wagner and Lily, which I believe we all know they are partners, and have them make this kind of story.. kind of The findings of evidence of intelligent life in This universe. And I kind of emphasise on the "this", because now we´ve come to acknowledge that there are some other universes, you know. And it is sad because perhaps we haven't acknowledge some bunch of other things that they, so gracefully, not just performed, write and performed and presented to us, and introduced to, in such a delightful ways. And it is amazing to see how all this years, and all this ..well more than years, because I am not good thinking in that timing measurement, but all this situations and moments that have constructed our history since that.. since that piece, since that I don´t know how to call it, that play, that .. this amazing piece of art, and.. or soup... its... what I was saying?? oh ah, it is for me i don´t know, somewhat frightening and astonishing , and it provoques me a lot of curiosity, knowing how all those satire of the time, satire, I don´t know if i said that word correctly, but I hope so, I hope so, hum, as many other arts, have had being great at reflecting the society of the time. and it is somewhat sad, to see so so much of this, i don´t know i kind of call it, critic type of thinking, and cleverness, has expanded so little you know. Because here we are making all this decisions based on such an... i don´t know how to say it but in so ... ummm.. superficiality and... not that much superficiality , but also yes, but, jaja, but what I mean is in so much un... how do you say, unconnected... yes unconnected to ones soul, and to the understanding that one´s well-being can not be without the others you know, and and until we get to this point of understanding, this places, and living as yourselves on that , and not having to put a show to be on it. (but which i totally endorse people like Lily Tomlin and Jane Wagner to keep on making shows to.. reveal that,you know.. but i mean that we have to get much more connected ah, I don´t want to say with reality but ..with yourself in it you know . witch might be the ultimately reality, but.. at least for one´s souls because who knows for others´ realities right? but, yes to get much more in touch with our selves. and yes I spend a lot of time thinking about it, and I do believe this is, a place that we must make more emphasis on going to, and, yes you know, i could talk about it for hours, but yes i love fantasizing that i will kind of see this play created by these two amazing human beings which happen, or whom, I am sorry, happen to be be also great woman from my understanding, and.. so yes, that is what i think it is such a great starting for this 2017 and I believe in shearing this kind of stories, because, I believe that it is important to recognize and keep this kind of awareness and a beauty of awareness, or I don´t know how to say it, to recognize this inspirational and aspirational states of being, in so much that we have had, and are able to be exposed to, and i think that many people, or at least many people i know... I don´t wan to say sadly, but just because life goes this way, haven´t had that experience to access this type of document, life changing documents, or events or i don´t know how to call it. so yes that´s what I think that 2017 might be a great year. I hope it is,for we all, we all, universes and so. _________________ If I was in fact able to reach the party to whom I am writing to, (Jane and Lily) I want to heartfully thank you for sharing with the world your amazing gifts.
GRAMMA was more than poignant, Ms. Lily. I adore you, but Sam Elliot much more, ha! Wish i had your smarts. JF will know why. Stay healthy & internally beautiful!
Thank you, lovely Lily, for supporting the Mitch Album charity today for citizens of Detroit. It was so kind of you to donate an Edith Ann doll for his auction. Once a Michigander, always a Michigander. You rock.
Hi! I will be seeing Lily in Frb 4 in Orlando, Am praying that we could meet again!! Trying to get a proposal from my partner of 43years.😩😰 Lily almost talked her into it last time in Jax , Fl. Vivian was helpful as well. Think this would do the trick!
I have conducting tours at a museum in Santa Paula, California. At the start of the tour is an old time switch board, 1927, and every time I see this switch board I think of you. In fact you are part of my tours. If you are ever in Santa Paula please stop at the California Oil Museum. I would love take your picture at the switch board
Dear Lily, I have been a fan of yours since I was very young. I love The Incredible Shrinking Woman, 9 to 5, Big Business and All of Me. You are one of my favorites of all time. I do have one question though, is a frog's ass water-tight? (Big Business quote 🙂 Take care Angie
I just discovered "Grace and Frankie" and I love it so much, as I have loved every TV, film, stage performance Lily Tomlin has given us. You are pure delight. Your radiant smile, your thoughtfulness, and your human spirit shine through everything. I just want to thank you so much for the joy you give me.
Message to Lily. Hi Lily, Have always been a big fan. My hubby and I just discovered Grace and Frankie today and couldn't stop watching. Absolutely love your character Frankie and the ongoing story.
