Congratulations Leila, we wish you much success!

Also today is Leila's 20th Birthday. Happy Birthday Leila!

Vincent at the New York City Horror Film Festival

A quick, unexpected post from me early in the morning. Again, thanks to TheReel for the link as well as NYCHFF

He looks amazing as always! I can't post all the pics, but these are some of the good ones. The link above contains all of them. Enjoy!

All Things Vincent

 'All Things Vincent' Introduction:

Who am I?

All Things Vincent is the title of my new blog. It honestly didn't take me very long to come up with this. I hope no one else out there is using this name. I don't believe anyone is, but you never know...

Anyway, my blog and blogger name have a kind of theme about them. For all you X-Files fans out there, I hope you figured it out by now. As much as I love Vincent D'Onofrio and Criminal Intent, my first love was The X-Files. Notice the past tense by the way. =)

I know a few people have wondered about my name and finally built up the courage to ask me. For those of you still wondering, a little explanation before I get on with bigger and better things (hint: VDO because he's bigger and most definitely better). For those of you that don't give a shit and just want me to get on with Vincent, just hold on for a few minutes while I ramble on for a few paragraphs. LOL

VINNIE VIDI VICI is my name. Well, not entirely. I first learned of the word 'ouroboros' from an episode of The X-Files, episode: Never Again (season 4). To make a long story short, Scully got a tattoo of an ouroboros. What does an ouroboros look like? Well, there isn't one picture that dictates what the design should exactly be per se.  Scully's was simplified, but here's what one can look like:

What is an ouroboros? If you're that interested, you can read here: Ouroboros. Basically, it's a dragon or a snake (serpent) devouring it's tail. That's the simplified version, but it symbolizes the re-creating of ones self and denotes eternity or eternal life. Get it? =)

Now that we have the ouroboros part covered, what's Snyder? There's nothing too it, really. If you haven't notice by now, I sign everything at the end with ~Snyder~. Snyder is simply my name. To be more specific, my last name. Years and years ago, I put the two words together and, voila, I got the name VINNIE VIDI VICI that I now use all around the internet.

Why did I choose 'All Things Vincent' as a title to my blog? All Things, actually known as 'all things' (all lowercase), was an episode of the X-Files that all true fans know about. It's possibly the episode in explaining a lot about the show (or at least how the relationship between Mulder and Scully got started). Gillian Anderson wrote the episode and made sure that it was known that the episode was all in lowercase, however I changed it. I originally put it in lowercase, but it didn't look right.

So there you have it. I hope to create a blog picture like all you other people out there with awesome Vincent blogs have, but I'm not superb with it comes to photoshop. Actually, I quite suck. LOL. Hopefully I'll be able to come up with something though - maybe even incorporate an ouroboros in there somewhere. =)

Well, after torturing you with my story, I think you deserve some pictures, don't you think?

Nothing too special this time - just some yummy pictures I picked out that I enjoy looking at. Actually, every picture of Vincent is special IMO. =)

New Vincent Banner

Havers, being the awesome person that she is, made me a banner so that I now have one to go along with my blog. I was so excited when she sent me a link on twitter to my new banner that I knew I had to do a blog to properly thank her!

So what do you guys think? Like it? I think she did an awesome job on it! Thanks again to you, havers! You're awesome!

To all my followers, I would like to suggest that you follow her blog: Lovely Kathryn.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

 Looks like Vincent approves of the banner as well! =)

Size 13 Prompted by Jones

People seem to love to talk about Vincent's size 13's and as I sit here at this very moment, I can't help but smile at the fact that I do too. I grin like a fool in love every time I see his feet - or for that matter - every time someone even mentions them in passing (dare I say no pun intended). I swear I don't have a foot fetish, but after the episode Jones, well, it's his fault we've all come to love his feet! The thing I find even more amusing is that he knows we do! He's not stupid, he's not ignorant, he knows!

It doesn't come as a shock to me that people are aware of the sheer size of him. I've taken notice as have all of you. The size of his feet, for me anyway, became well-known (practically a celebrity in themselves) after the Jones episode aired. But I have to ask you, did you ever sit back and think about the actor, Griffin Dunne, that played Henry Talbott? That poor man! I know it's just acting, but I seriously wonder if that had any affect on his relationships with women. After the small feet and hands comment by Goren, well, hello!!! I mean the guy is small! Oh, to see the behind the scenes for this episode! LOL

Anyway, to point out some of my favorite screen caps from this episode, I put together a little collage so to speak. You know the scene it entitles. Enjoy and hopefully smile. =) I'm sure I will actually post pictures of his feet as time passes, but I wanted to keep this strictly dealing with this episode.

The words: snug fit, tight missile and I wear a 13 come to mind here. LOL

Picture of Vincent in Australia

I was scrolling through Twitter and noticed havers had posted a link to a picture of Vincent and his daughter in Australia. Someone took the photo and posted it to their Facebook page. This is not my photo. I do not own it. I did not take it. I'm just borrowing it to allow others to see how yummy he looks! Love the shorts and the relaxed look on his face. I can't stop staring at his shins and calf's. =X

Vincent at the Naples Film Festival

I recently discovered some new pictures of Vincent D'Onofrio thanks to thereel (@reelblog) on Twitter and I thought I'd share them with you.

Before I begin, however, I'd just like to say I'm going to try this whole blog thing and see how it works out. I hope to do an update once a week and, yes, it will pretty much be all about Vincent D'Onofrio. Please follow my blog and give it a chance... You can always unfollow if it's that bad. =)  Thanks for reading.

Now to the pictures:

Vincent D'Onofrio at the Naples Film Festival (supposedly this is day 2 into the festival)

I absolutely love this picture. It's too adorable! I keep staring at his wedding ring, maybe I'm a masochist, but doesn't it look loose to you? Hmm, Vincent, have you been on a diet?

 Another yummy photo. I like this shot, too.

Hmm, size 13's anyone?

 Big hands, too!

 *Sighs* Too perfect for words.

 I love the way he's leaning back in this photo - I just wish it was me he was leaning back on. Oh, please, like you weren't thinking the same thing!

Have an itch? I can help! And, gosh, look at that smile! It makes me want to melt...and those curls!

 I need to do some research, but does anyone know who this guy is? There are a lot of photo's of him and Vincent talking.

Ah, one of the many expressions of Vincent.

 Is it weird if I say I love his pearly white teeth? Hmm...

And lastly, a full-body shot (or almost full).

All photo's copyright WILKINSON 2010. There are many more photo's, but I had to narrow it down, so I chose a few of my favorite.

Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays to all! Oh, god, to have a Christmas tree full of this!

 If you guys are wondering what to get me for Christmas, here's a great gift idea:

However, if I can't have our lovely Bobby for Christmas, then all I want for Christmas is an amazing Season 10 of Criminal Intent (and because I am a total shipper) some BA love as well.

The Look

There's a certain scene in the movie Staten Island that I keep re-watching. I have screen caps of the scene and there's one look on Vincent's face that, in my opinion, is a splitting image of Bobby Goren. I know, I know, they're played by the same person, but when I saw the look on his face, I immediately thought: Bobby! That sad, unsure look is so Bobby.

Here's the look I'm speaking of:

What do you think? Am I losing it? To me this is completely a 'Goren' look. If it wasn't for the fact that I knew this was a screen cap from Staten Island, I'd undoubtedly believe it's from Law and Order: Criminal Intent. You know what episode this actually reminds me of? The episode Siren Call and most definitely Blind Spot. Go back and watch the episodes and you'll be pointing at your screen saying "Yes! Snyder's right! There's the look! I see it!" He does this expression in more than those two episodes, but those are the two that came to mind first. It's that damn puppy-dog look he does so well - his eyes sad, his brows furrowed and his forehead wrinkled. I love it! I think this is the look I fell in love with! It makes me want to jump through my TV and hug him...

No other movie I've seen with Vincent D'Onofrio in it - though little it may be - emits an expression from him as profound and similar to his character on Criminal Intent like this movie and this shot.

New Criminal Intent Promo Vid and Screen Caps

Because I love this promo so much, I had to do some screen caps of the new shots of Vincent D'Onofrio. He looks amazing (as always). I love the second and sixth pic!

You can view the video here: USA Network

Feel free to save any of these screen caps before I put my name on them. I must share the love! I blew the pics up since they were pretty small. I hope the pics aren't too distorted. If you want them smaller just let me know.
