In my VCR:  a couple of tapes.  One has this week's latest "Last Comic Standing" episode and Wednesday's rebroadcast of Oprah's episode (I don't even remember why I taped it).  Another tape has some other show that I taped.

In my DVD player:  "Deceit" (still).  A movie from Netflix that I've been notified has been shipped is "The Alien Conspiracy: Grey Skies."  One of our very own Hainsies or Kimlets is involved in it! ;)

In my CD player at work:  a whole bunch of CDs that I haven't listened to...one that I listened to yesterday for only the second time is the new concert cast recording of South Pacific with Reba and Stokes.  I really like this.

DVD:  THE TERROR OF FRANKENSTEIN

VCR:  FOREVER AMBER

Memorial service today for friend Jan, and the we have a SOLD OUT audience for DEATH BY CHOCOLATE tonight.  Of course last night, the girl running the lights doubled bumped and ended up in a blackout and so she hit "GO" again and ended up a scene ahead....it was kind of a mess, when she finally decided she had to do something, she hit a cue and lit the stage while the SM was still finishing his scene change.... GRRRRRRRRRRR

How HARD can it be to hit "GO" on cue....one time....each time?

Good morning, all!  I have a day of running around:  10:45 AM appointment at 112th and Amsterdam with my surgeon to check out his cutting on Monday, and a 1:00 PM meeting in Wall Street, which is all the  way to the bottom of the island.
After that, I shall indulge myself and lounge around until I tire of it.

DR MichaelS, I met John Pizzarelli while working on a Gershwin concert for the Library of Congress around 1996 or so.  The cast included Lara Teeter, Audra McDonald, Dawn Upshaw, David Garrison, John Pizzarelli, and several others,  I've never worked on anything with him, but I've worked with his wife Jessica on the WINDFLOWERS album for PS Classics.  They are both wonderful people.  I last saw them when they rcorded a number for the FINE AND DANDY recording.

DVD:  DECEIT (commentary track), HAMLET (Derek Jacobi), MACBETH (Richard Pasco), several operas

CD:  Guy Haines, Jule Styne in Hollywood, Liszt Hungarian Rhapsodies, Patti Lupone Lady With a Torch

VCR:  The Life and Times of William Shakespeare (Tim Curry), cheap porn (IT'S BAAAAACK!!!)

iPod:  Tori Amos--Little Earthquakes and a whole lot of Chumbawumba

Tivo:  Documentary on Hershey Park in Hershey, PA and IVANHOE with Liz Taylor

DVD:  I haven't bought a new DVD in weeks--I'm sort of proud of myself.

VCR:  I'm hoping I'll have time this weekend to watch (and transfer to DVD) the Public Theater Central Park production of A MIDSUMMER'S NIGHT DREAM (or is it A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM) that starred William Hurt as Oberon.

BIG storm moving through right now.  The rain just started a few minutes ago, but the skies have been rumbling for a good 20 minutes already.  And from the radio reports, it's supposed to be severe but short.  I hope it does  stay short, and I hope it's not that severe.

Btw, not sure if anybody else mentioned this. But I was actually very happy with the two who were eliminated.

My favorites are benji and his cousin heidi. And i also like allison. And after last night's show i really like travis.  But i really dislike dimitry. Not sure why (he's a good dancer). But his personality just rubbed me the wrong way. And I think martha had the least personality of the remaining girls.

I can't wait to see who the pairs are next week.

Btw, i asked this before, but does anybody know if any of the pairs dances are on the internet? I still really want to see heidi and travis' contemporary. Thanks.

I was really happy with the HOH winner.
I'm not sure how i feel about nakomis leaving over diane. I don't really prefer one of the other. But I would have been curious to see if nakomis had kept her agreement with kaysar.

Also, i'm not understanding how the alliances voted. Kaysar seemed to make a deal with nakomis, yet only janelle and will voted to keep her. So why did will and mike boogie not vote together. ANd why did james/howie not vote with janelle (Kaysar). I am really confused.

That was actually a really good HOH challenge. Much better than the plain Q&As.

Huge storm, angry storm.  But it looks like it's over now.  Rodzinski's office finally has power restored but as he made his way out to work he was told that the A train was closed.  So he came back in, waited a bit, and made his way out again.  I hope it's not a miserable ride to work.

DR Jennifer, re: BB All Stars...SPOILERS















I would have preferred Diane be voted out as I think Nakomis is a much better player, and I enjoy her colorful hair...however, it was probably in everyone's best interest to vote out Nakomis.

[move=left,scroll,6,transparent,100%]Kaysar is so nice to look at!!!!![/move]

I was also pleased with who won HOH...that will be very interesting, I think!

[move=right,scroll,6,transparent,100%]Kaysar is so nice to look at!!![/move]

I am enjoying this All-stars season much better more then I thought I would...in the past the thing that has always attracted me to BIG BROTHER was getting to know all new contestants...but so many of these people this season have grown and matured since they were on before...it is almost like they are different people altogether.....

[move=up,scroll,6,transparent,100%]I love Kaysar!!![/move]


...for instance, Jase, who I detested when he was on a few season's back, is now actually quite likeable and I am enjoying the way he is playing the game.

I wanted to check out the non-anamorphic Special Edition I had to see if it looked good enough to resist upgrading to the new enhanced edition.

We're baaaack from our cross-country trip.  It was deathly hot in Wisconsin (over 100 most of the time, with about 200% humidity, which may not be possible, but it was anyway).  And now of course Portland is going to top 100 for the next several days.  Oy.

Got home to see I received Deceit (still no sparkling trivia prize--what is it with me and the fershluggunah sparkling trivia prizes anyway?   ;)).  So's anyway, watched it and then put on the commentary track, at which point Betsy walked in and asked for a brief precis of the plot, which I gave her.

GREAT MINDS THINK ALIKE AND SPEAK ALIKE DEPARTMENT:

SPOILER--DO NOT READ FURTHER IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN DECEIT:

So we're listening to BK's commentary while I am filling Betsy in on the plot and I am explaining how the whole first act is, indeed, an act.  And Betsy asks why they have to act it out if "Jeffrey" (how'd BK come up with that name, I wonder, LOL) isn't even there.  At which point I say, "Because he has a little camera tucked inside his shirt," which is followed about a nanosecond later by BK on the commentary track saying "Because he has a little camera tucked inside his shirt."   We laughed and laughed and just when---well, you get the point.

DVD:  The aforementioned Deceit.

Book:  (Do we do books?).  I finished a book on the trip called The Third Translation by Matt Bondurant.  Has anyone else read it?  I picked it up because it looked interesting--lots of Egyptology, cryptology, etc., thought it might be a more cerebral Da Vinci Code, but either I missed something or it's a lot of sound and fury signifying nothing, because I found it a well-written bore.

TOD - I have been alternating video's of GYPSY in the ol' VCR, back and forth between the Bette Midler and Roz Russel versions - and settling on the Bette for the choreography of "Ya Gotta Get a Gimmick". ALL the choreographies in both vid's are the original Jerome Robbins dances... Well, why is PennyO so interested in that, you may ask...

Okay, here's the scoop. It has been YEARS - possible DECADES - since Miss PennyO was any good at all on a dance audition. If - I do say "if" - she were to audition tomorrow for - oh, I dunno - Mazeppa, the pugnacious old stripper in GYPSY, it might be a good idea if she already had the choreography down, and could really SELL it.

So I have quite a busy day ahead of me. Learn the steps, then head over to Topanga Mall for a birthday partay lunch for my nephew's new bride; thence to get my tight black pants from the loft, and maybe sing through Gimmick with Chuckie; then find a curly black stretch wig to go over these 57-year-old silver locks; then do a little more hoofin'; then head over to pick up my pal Felice and drive to LACC for the Heather show.

Oh, what a day I shall have - in a gas-eater without air conditioning on freeway after freeway... but, with visions of Jewish Thighs dancing in my head!!!

Ah, and in the CD player - a demo disc I just got from my BMI friend David Spencer - 2 new songs for an audition for a new show that is still looking for a composer/lyricist... could be a very big deal. I must say, he does a bang up demo! Really has the presentation DOWN - inserts, photos of all artists on the disc, professional-looking printing on the disc itself; the songs are sung professionally by decent actors; the tracks are well-orchestrated to give the songs the best possible chance. Everything smooth and professional. And the songs Solve the Problem, dramatically. Wow - I wish him luck!

There are several people who would like Scent of Mystery to come out on DVD.  For the time being, all that can be found, however, is the severely cut (by thirty something minutes) and horribly narrated Holiday In Spain version.  That's not worth releasing, unfortunately.

BB7 SPOILER

Now that JAMES IS HOH, I wonder if his true self will emerge?  Will he prove to be a BB6 ally or will he strike out on on his own and ally himself with someone else?

The only problem with the Diane-Nakomis nominations, IMO, is that Diane wasn't evicted.  She is definitely allied with Jase and is a devious, conniving vixen.

My fear: James will ally with Jase and Diane, Will and Boogie.  Putting two BB6ers on the chopping block would seriously damage any BB6er's chance (except James) of making it to the final 6.  I'm certain Danielle and George would buy some of that, too.

My hope: James will strike a blow by putting up Will or Boogie and Jase or Danielle.  They all sit in the hot tub each night dissing BB6 and plotting to get rid of them when "they" get the power (yet they don't openly reveal any planning), and they represent the biggest danger to BB6 players plus their allies Ericka and Marcellas.  George is leaning toward Chilltown, but is inconsequential at the moment.  The "hot tub malcontents" need to be thinned out, IMO!

The only problem with the Diane-Nakomis nominations, IMO, is that Diane wasn't evicted.  She is definitely allied with Jase and is a devious, conniving vixen.

My fear: James will ally with Jase and Diane, Will and Boogie.  Putting two BB6ers on the chopping block would seriously damage any BB6er's chance (except James) of making it to the final 6.  I'm certain Danielle and George would buy some of that, too.

My hope: James will strike a blow by putting up Will or Boogie and Jase or Danielle.  They all sit in the hot tub each night dissing BB6 and plotting to get rid of them when "they" get the power (yet they don't openly reveal any planning), and they represent the biggest danger to BB6 players plus their allies Ericka and Marcellas.  George is leaning toward Chilltown, but is inconsequential at the moment.  The "hot tub malcontents" need to be thinned out, IMO!

From what I read somehere (Canoe maybe) I think James and Danielle have an alliance. He won't put her up

Benji and Heidi are cousins!?  I had no idea, I guess that's what I get for not watching the show from the beginning.

Yes and they are amazing dancers together.

On one of the audition shows they were thinking about getting rid of Benji. They asked him to do a dance to show them why he should stay.

Anyhow he asked if he could dance with heidi and it was spectacular. They both do swing and they are really wonderful to watch together.

RE: the BIG BROTHER canoe/jame spoilers/recaps. I think i love them more than the show.  I don't like knowing spoilers for (survivor/or TAR). But I can't even imagine BB without reading john's posts everyday.  Otherwise how would we know what was really happening in the house.

I must say some interesting pre-show alliances seem to be coming out.

Also, i have one question.  What was up with that lame Mr. & Mrs. Smith explanation they gave on the show last night. That is not what happened at all.  I guess the producers don't want to look bad by making it seem like somebody else manipulated the show.  But what really happened was that toni (the loud obnoxious reality show contestant from love cruise and other shows) was diane's roomie. They had a falling out and toni called all the BB7 contestants to tell them that diane and jase (and maybe allison) had a pre-show alliance. All the BB7ers have admitted that toni called them!

I wonder if it's true, since diane and jase rarely talk to each other.

BIG BROTHER canoe spoilers.

Don't read if you don't want to know what is going on in the house today.

I think it's hysterical that so many tried to make pre-show alliances.

It is interesting that when James and danielle were the final two vying for HOH last night I didn't realize that they were working together.

And apparently will/mike boogie/danielle/james made a pre-show alliance.
So i am quite confused who james is actually working with. I don't think i've seen him give chilltown info (from season 6ers). But now i wonder if james is playing both sides. Or if his real alliance is with chiltown (vs BB6).

Wasn't there once something called Aroma-rama, which I'd imagine must have been much like Smell-o-vision?

In a word, YUP!

Quote
The 1959 film, Behind the Great Wall, used a process called Aroma-Rama to send scents through the air-conditioning system of a theatre.

also:

Quote
In homage to Smell-o-Vision, American film director John Waters released an enhanced "Odorama" version of his film, Polyester in 1982. Waters included scratch-and-sniff cards that the audience used while watching the movie.

(Above from  WIKIPEDIA (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smell-o-vision))

Are any Queens Long Island residents having power problems? Hiz Onner is out-of-sorts:

Quote
New York Blackout Worse Than Reported
Estimated 100,000 Queens Residents Without Power

...

Bloomberg said the utility's latest estimate was that most of the problems could be fixed by the end of the weekend.

Con Edison also said Friday that 35,000 customers in Westchester County, the suburbs just north of New York City, also lost power after Tuesday's storm. About 6,000 were still out Friday morning.

Bloomberg demanded that the utility investigate and deliver a report on the cause of the outages in Queens within two weeks.

Tecnically, there is no such thing:

 Appalling Dog Site (http://www.chihuahuas-chihuahuas.com/)

Quote
Though some people prefer to specify the name of the breed and call their dogs Tea-Cup, Tiny Toy, Pocket Size, Miniature or Standard Chihuahuas there are no discriminations made within the breed according to the American Kennel Club. Chihuahuas weigh usually up to 9 pounds. However, the standard does not allow dogs weighing more than 6 pounds to be shown.

These are wonderful animals, as long as they're yours; others will most likely find them yippy, nippy, and, well, appalling.

It's such a joke! I knew they couldn't be right when they were saying only 2,100 people were still without power, and I'm walking from the subway to work today and every little business on the street is closed, losing precious money. Every stoplight on the street not working. We were able to operate today, but because we had an outside generator brought in. Still didn't have AC. Really seeing now and after the far worse Katrina episode, that we cannot realistically count on the govt in times of emergency.

Understand, it was 95 degrees Tuesday, and for what is still an unknown reason, people out there in Queens are without full power three days later!

Reminder that there are new episodes tonight of MONK and PSYCH. ENjoyed PSYCH last week a lot more than the pilot, so I'll be interested to see if it keeps up its momentum.

I wonder if they'll attempt to keep up the fake psychic bit throughout the whole series.  I think that it could get old very quickly.  The guy has very astute observational abilities and I find that much more interesting that him trying to continue the charade.

Ooo, let's:  Yesterday, I finished reading (with my ears) The Whole World Over.  Now, I want to go to Greenwich Village to shop at Fenno's book shop and eat Greenie's coconut cake at Walter's new restaurant.  What, they're fictional?  Oh, darn!

Well... On a related note...

While walking to rehearsal this morning, I happened to pass Magnolia Bakery.  At first I thought there was already a line of people outside at 11:00am, but it turned out that it was the staff sitting outside on the sidewalk.  Their air-conditioning was not working, and so they were closed for business.  There was a sign saying they would be opening at Noon, but as I looked at the guys inside trying to position fans in front of the cake and cupcake displays... :-\

I don't won't to belabor this issue with you.  Suffice it to say I know when someone is trying to manipulate me and this happened today after lunch.  I stopped a little act from playing out and called it for what it was and said I had no intention of responding to it.

It stopped immediately and we resumed a professional demeanor.

Good Evening!

Hmm...

So when are the dates of the Fall HHW Gathering in NYC this year?  Judging by DR Cillaliz's purchase of a ticket to see The Drowsy Chaperone on October 5, I'm guessing the first week of October - ???

Hmm...

Well...  Beginning August 8 - well, August 9 for me - I will be starting rehearsals for Cabaret back down in DC at Arena Stage.  The show opens September 8, and closes October 29.

The one cool thing about this contract/show is that part of the band will be on stage, and the conductor position is a piano/conductor position.  So, I'll be playing the rehearsals, but once the show opens, I'll basically be on-call to conduct/play for the duration for the run since there's no keyboard/synth in the pit.  Best of all, I'll still be getting paid and housed!

I will most likely conduct/play one or two of the previews, and then we'll see if there's any sort of regular schedule once the run proper begins.  *And since we're doing the Joel Grey revival version of the show, the onstage band will be comprised of Kit Kat Girls.  In other words, I'll be in drag.  YIKES!

;D
Title: Re:GLORIOUS SMELL-O-VISION
Post by: JoseSPiano on July 21, 2006, 08:11:52 PM
Oh.. where as I.. Oh, yes.. The Fall HHW Gathering...

Well, the first week of October, it looks like I will be taking a week's leave of absence from Cabaret down in DC to come up for a show that will be a part of the National Alliance for Music Theatre (NAMT) conference.  That's still not definite, so I can't share the details right now.  However, if the show is a go, I should be back up in NYC the first week of October.  I'm not sure if I'll have enough time to give another Walking and Eating and Walking and Eating Tour... But I guess I could always come up with a guidebook and a map.

Well, it's called PSYCH, so I think they'll have to keep up the charade. Now, they may let some others in on his secret eventually, but much of the comedy of the show revolves around how he psychs out people into believing one thing about him when he's actually using a totally different skill. As long as the audience knows what he's actually doing, it's probably more fun for the others to be duped.

There was a NY TIMES article about Youtube a few weeks back. They have only a staff of 10 people or so. They don't take anything down for copyright reasons unless someone asks them to. If the copyright holder asks them to take it down, they do immediately. People had posted a lot of SNL clips early on, and Lorne Michaels and Co. acted swiftly and they took them all down, but people re-post stuff sometimes, so it is really a crapshoot.
