Well, you've read the notes, you read them today even though they were written yesterday which was today when they were written although it is also today when they are posted but that was tomorrow at the time they were written today, and now it is time for you to post until tomorrow's cows come home today.

Todays Chic Chick Tip!

"After you dream, you must do"
"   The only thing that separates you from the people who have what you want is the fact that they are out getting it while you are still dreaming it."

This brought me to full heaving sobs for many reasons, and I love it. It is something everyone needs to hear once in a while.

Good morning to the Early Boys. That sounds like a country band.

We had a very nice weekend, relaxed and simple. We did have visitors. Anthony's cousin and cousin-in-law (his cousin's wife) came over on Friday and we went to our new favorite Indian restaurant in Chelsea and had a great meal. The staff is very nice and they like us so we got rice pudding and spice tea for dessert for free. And as often happens in Indian restaurants, the bill was surprising cheap for so much good food.

My brother-in-law was in town this past week for a conference and he stopped by on Saturday for a visit.

Sunday was a quiet and uneventful day spent watching old movies, the latest episode of Ugly Betty and two episodes of As Time Goes By.

Yesterday we had a sparkling and witty visit from our resident musical genius, Mr. Larry Moore. We laughed and dished and spoke about friends (and enemies). It was a delightful morning. We then relaxed before entertaining another visitor (all these people want to see our tree). We entertained our dear friend, Randall. We laughed and ate and talked of good times and bad. A good evening was had by all.

This picture is NOT a shot of Randall and me but it is a shot of our friend, Andrea who had stopped by earlier in the week to view our tree. So, in an effort to keep the holidays going through the month of January we present

Ben and Anthony's tree (note the virtual fireplace in the background)!

Re: last night's Golden globes.

I did not get to see the pre-show so the only fashion i saw were from the winners and the presenters.

From what i did see my favorite dress was jennifer lopez's long black number.  I also thought that reese witherspoon's short yellow dress was sweet. And vanessa williams looked really nice (except i did not like her bushy hair).

As for the awards, i really liked that the cast of Ugly Betty won for best show. IT is a really good show and they were all so excited.  I was also happy that America Ferrera won for Betty. All the other women are good. But this is betty's first year and she really seems quite different from her character.

Other winners i loved: Meryl streep (she's just so gracious),  Helen Mirren (same for her), Jennifer hudson (very happy for her), Dreamgirls winning best movie,  kyra sedgwick (love her).


One thing that i don't like is that for the tv awards the supporting actors for series are mixed with the miniseries. The miniseries always seem to win and it's really not fair to lump them together.

As for the show I thought the cecile b demille award just went on forever. That was the only part i tuned out.  IT was like 30 minutes and just went on and on.

I also was a bit disappointed that the show started right at 8pm. I wish nbc had done some red carpet. Or at least when they were showing everybody at the beginning SHOW THEIR DRESSES. i don't want to see people's faces.

I really like Marcel and Ilan - it is just crazy that people like Betty on TOP CHEF and Angela on the last WUNWAY thought they went as far as they did on their meager talents, it's just that more talented people made bigger mistakes.  Both of them should have been gone WEEKS before they actually were.

I have to agree with the reviewer who wrote (and I thought this from the time I bought the Cast Album a LONG time ago) - for a musical about a specific time in MUSIC - the songs themselves were not representative of era OR the genre.  And in fact a lot of them were VERY ordinary.

"Fauré: Mélodies" - Gérard Souzay, baritone; Elly Ameling, soprano; Dalton Baldwin, piano.

Sunday in the Park with George - OCR

DR Jennifer, I agree with you about the supporting TV awards for the Globes. It does seem like a hodgepodge of nominees from movies, miniseries, comedy and drama series all lumped together. Occasionally, a TV series person will win; Sandra Oh won the first year of GREY'S ANATOMY's eligibility, and Kim Cattrall won once for SEX & THE CITY, but ordinarily, you're correct, the series actors are at a disadvantage.

I guess because they already have SO many categories separating comedy/musical actors from drama actors in both TV and films, it's just too crowded as it is.

As for the DREAMGIRLS mini-sweep, that's the way it goes some years even at the Oscars. Some years, a lot of movies divide up the spoils. Doesn't mean the movies are less deserving, just that there are films of equal quality vying for the same prizes. (The only other show of any kind of the night that won three was HBO's ELIZABETH I. Nothing else won more than two.)

A few Oscar examples: 1976 - ROCKY won a total of 3 awards including Best Picture; NETWORK and ALL THE PRESIDENT'S MEN each won four awards.

2004 - MILLION DOLLAR BABY won four awards including Best Picture; THE AVIATOR won five total awards.

2005 - Best Picture winner CRASH won three awards. BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN won three awards. MEMOIRS OF A GEISHA won three awards; KING KONG won three awards.

As for the TV awards from last night, I really couldn't fault them. I thought a couple of nominees didn't deserve their spots (BIG LOVE, for example, instead of DEADWOOD or DEXTER).

But how GREAT for Kyra Sedgwick and America Ferrerra! I was very pleased for them, and happy that UGLY BETTY got recognized. GREY'S ANATOMY had a fabulous second season, and it was a toss-up for me whether it won or '24.' Since '24' won the Emmy, it's fine with me that GREY'S won this time out.

I have only the three CBS comedies from last night to watch today, so I should be able to squeeze in a movie before the start-up of AMERICAN IDOL tonight.

I know the auditions rounds garner some of the show's highest ratings as people tune in to see the truly bad, delusional folks who think they can sing. I have to say that the audition rounds are the most tedious for me, and I don't always watch them completely. I much prefer the show once the real talent gets to Hollywood, and the elimination rounds begin.

He's the best thing about 30 ROCK and giving one of the drollest, most enjoyable performances I've seen on TV in awhile. I would have picked Steve Carrell (who won last year), but I had no problem with Alec winning.

(The Globes often favor new shows over old favorites.)

I caught up on some of my recorded shows from last week.

"Smallville" was fun, if a bit of a stall in the ongoing story about the formation of the Justice Leage.  Just more "Lana still loves Clark" dramaturgy.  Ho-hum.

"Supernatural" resonated greatly because Jared Padelecki turned in a very strong performance.  It was all the more noticeable because co-star Jensen Ackles was in the background...and his dour one-notedness didn't bring the proceedings to their usual halt-go-halt-go-halt!

And then there was "The Ghost Whisperer" -- and what a strong, emotional and gutsy entry this show was in that series: the ghost of a soul that had a tortured recall of several prior lives.  And that soul found itself set for another incarnation.  Melinda rightly grasped that the soul was about to be reborn, but did not guess who the mother was.  The resolution, and the sacrifice, I found to be very moving.  There's more to this storyline of "not being ready to have a child" and it may end badly for one of our characters.

Oh i loved this episode too.

I wonder if they will have melinda get pregnant in the near future. I thought it was a very interesting way to have her agree she was ready.

I wonder if they will have melinda get pregnant in the near future. I thought it was a very interesting way to have her agree she was ready.

SPOILER

The issue was this:  He had gone into the light and had seen many things he'd done that hurt other people, and he had been horrified by (or frightened of) what he saw.  He then found himself back in the world, but as a ghost or spirit.

What saved him was overhearing the dicussion between Melinda and her husband.  His wanting a child, and her being willing to give him one even when she wasn't sure the timing was right, was -- as he told her --the first time he'd ever witnessed anyone doing anything so generous for a loved one.  That, and the fact that he told her he wouldn't fight being born again if she was to be his mother, brought the light.  And Melinda, realizing that he finally had the opportunity to move on, rather than try another lifetime, told him he should go.

She only wanted one thing from him, and that was for him to tell his sister how he felt about her.  As you may recall, the sister said he could be very selfish, and that she never knew if he appreciated anything she had done for him...but that he could be so charming and lovable when he was happy that she hoped he'd one day realize how much she loved him.  

The result for Melinda and hubby, of course, was that she turned out not to be pregnant.  This topic has been brought up before in this season, and I'm not certain what the writers/producer (i.e, Love Hewitt) will do to reconcile it.

I greatly fear they're going to kill off another key character before this season ends.

Have you disvoered the Post Office's new Flat Rate Priority Mail (http://reviews.ebay.com/Flate-Rate-Priority-Mail-3-5-days-Shipping-with-USPS_W0QQugidZ10000000000124100)?

A whole shoe-box full of stuff, no weight limit, for $8.10

Quote
USPS Flat Rate Priority Mail (the eBay 'Standard Flate rate Shipping' is not necessarily Priority mail; always ask the seller exactly what kind of mail their 'Flate Rate' shipping entails.)

The US Postal Service Flat Rate Box comes in two sizes.

The largest (perfect-for-D&D-manuals-and-larger-boxed-sets, and heavy books; the photo shows the capacity; that's 11 pounds-worth of books!!) size is a robust 12x4x14,
costs a flat $8.10 to anywhere in the US, including AK, HI, Guam, APOs in Korea, Germany, Iraq, etc.,
and has unlimited weight within the restrictions of package integrity!

The boxes are free and the post office will even deliver large orders to your house or business, at no charge.

They're super-easy to pack, label and mail, because of the box construction, flat $8.10 fee, and the fact that they're Priority Mail 3-5 days delivery and so take the Priority Mail labels.

There's really no better substitute, especially with the low shipping price.

der Brucer - I've been using Flat Rate boxes since the beginning of Kritzerland - they're wonderful.  However, you can only fit about thirty five CDs in the big long box, and you can't fit many more into the square box - the amazon order is for close to 100 CDs and they get confused if you split it into several boxes.  So, via Fed Ex ground it will cost about twenty bucks, so even if I was able to split the amazon order into three flat rate boxes it's still cheaper via Fed Ex ground.  UPS for the same shipment of 100 discs would be over $100 for GROUND!!!

There are three pieces of classical music that really choke me up:

Rachmanioff's Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini
Beethoven's Ninth Symphony
And the Franck

I need Larry Moore to explain the fascinating antiphonal orchestrations that make the orchestra sound like the world's largest pipe organ.

I'm thinking, do I have a score for the Franck?  If I do, I'll have a look/listen and comment on what he's done.

DR Jeanne, if you know any recording of ON YOUR TOES, the number "Bach Beethoven and Brahms (The Three Bs)" begins with a mangled quote from the Franck Symphony.

I discovered something interesting about Flat Rate cartons from the USPS:  it may be a flat rate of $8.10, but if you're sending a priority package that might only cost you $6.10 in a flat rate carton, you're giving the Post Office $2.00 to their advantage.  A customer and I learned this over the holiday at one of the Post Office's automated service centers.

And then there was "The Ghost Whisperer" -- and what a strong, emotional and gutsy entry this show was in that series: the ghost of a soul that had a tortured recall of several prior lives.  And that soul found itself set for another incarnation.  Melinda rightly grasped that the soul was about to be reborn, but did not guess who the mother was.  The resolution, and the sacrifice, I found to be very moving.  There's more to this storyline of "not being ready to have a child" and it may end badly for one of our characters.

AARRGGHH!!  I THOUGHT that I had set my DVR to record this...but I didn't!  I actually didn't record the last two episodes. :P

Oh i loved this episode too. It was so different and so completely moving.  Although i did not really get why he was able to choose to go into the light and not be reborn.  IF he had gone into the light previously (didn't he say that or was it simply that he saw it but did not go into) then why would him going this time mean he would not be reborn.

I wonder if they will have melinda get pregnant in the near future. I thought it was a very interesting way to have her agree she was ready.

Maybe they will have Melinda get pregnant...I think I'd read that Jennifer Love Hewitt is pregnant in real life.  Has anyone else heard this??

Actually, I think that pretty much anyone can get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.  According to the official Hollywood Chamber of Commerce website (http://www.hollywoodchamber.net/icons/history.asp)[/url], the criteria for Star on the Walk of Fame includes:

1. Professional achievement
2. Longevity of five years in the field of entertainment
3. Contributions to the community
The recipient must agree to attend the dedication ceremony.
In case of a fan nomination, a letter of agreement must be sent by celebrity management.


And the sponsorship fee is only $15,000.

The Walk of Fame recipients for the year 2007 are:

MOTION PICTURES
Michael Caine, Matt Damon, Lauren Shuler Donner, Jamie Foxx, John Goodman, Michelle Pfeiffer and director Robert Altman.

TELEVISION
Erik Estrada, Kiefer Sutherland, Jerry Stiller, Barbara Walters and producer Dick Wolf.

RECORDING
Mariah Carey, Sean “Diddy” Combs, The Doors, Crystal Gayle, Tim McGraw, Leann Rimes and Shania Twain.

LIVE THEATRE/LIVE PERFORMANCE
Sir Tim Rice and Lily Tomlin.

RADIO
Rodney Bingenheimer and Stu Nahan.

I got a surprise when I settled in to watch last night's CBS comedies. First, HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER was a rerun from earlier this season. At first I thought I'd watch it, but then I heard the mailman drop some boxes on the front porch, so I figured some new Blu-ray discs had arrived, and I was correct. So, in order to squeeze in a movie this afternoon, I only watched shows I hadn't seen already.

CBS did present a new episode of THE CLASS, and it was one of the funniest of the season. Several classmates are starting to hang out more as friends now, so there aren't so many plots going on at once.

Actually, however, I think CBS is more or less burning off the episodes of THE CLASS it has, and I don't see it returning next season. In a few weeks, RULES OF ENGAGEMENT will begin in the 9:30 slot, and CBS is moving OLD CHRISTINE to the 8:30 slot while the new comedy tries out behind TWO AND A HALF MEN. If it does any kind of ratings at all, I suspect CBS will leave OLD CHRISTINE at 8:30.

For my Blu-ray movie of the afternoon, I chose BLAZING SADDLES. Warners struck this high def disc from the new transfer it produced for the film's anniversary DVD release a couple of years ago.

The main titles were gorgeous, very three dimensional looking (and the title song in 5.1 Dolby Digital Plus was superb.) But, I have to admit, my heart sank a little with the first shot looking like an ugly, grainy, noisy mess. However, immediately after that, the grain and noise went away, and I was left with a strikingly clear, clean, beautiful picture with strong color. (Only a couple of what appeared to be stock shots looked blown up to fit the Panavision frame.) Seeing it look this good really increased my enjoyment of this comedy, one I hadn't watched in many years.

I think I like it even more than Van's version (oh, strike me down, blasphemer).  My music tastes are most eclectic -- I love it all -- so that's why I couldn't just stick to 10 CDs.   And on any given day, it might be 10 different ones.

DR DakotaCelt,

You asked last night about the Audrey Hepburn Collection on DVD. I could be mistaken, but I THINK the DVD of BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S that is part of that set is the older DVD transfer that's darker and contains dirt and debris in the print they used for the transfer.

I mean, if you don't have the film any more on VHS, the disc is fine as a substitute (and it's going to look better than tape regardless of which DVD version it is), but I did want to caution you about that. The older transfer doesn't have the special features on it that the newer one does.

CA CONSUMER INFO (http://www.calphoneinfo.ca.gov/advisories/092106_cellanddrivinglaw.htm)
Quote
New California law banning use of hand-held cell phones while driving takes effect July 1, 2008

Starting July 1, 2008, it will be illegal to drive in California while talking on a cell phone unless you use a hands-free device, like an earpiece that plugs into the phone or a wireless earpiece. If you have a walkie-talkie feature on your cell phone, you can use that while driving until July 1, 2011. But after 2011, you will need to use a hands-free device.

Under the new law, if you are caught driving while holding a cell phone to your ear, you will be fined $20 the first time, and then $50 every time after that. If you were using your cell phone to call 911, however, you will not be fined. Cell phone fines will not affect your driving record.

Sounds like MY kind of show!

Interesting "American Idol" notes:

The producers say that of all the "audition" shows, the one EVERYone should watch is the one from Seattle on Wednesday night.  Apparently, it's the most appalling display of non-talent, tackiness and side-splittingly unbelievable auditions the show has ever had.

Sounds like MY kind of show!

And this season, something different is in the works for the finale!  Instead of ANOTHER ROTTEN NEW SONG being forced upon the finalists and us, "Idol" will have a songwriting contest and WE get to vote on which song we want the finalists to sing.

I should probably record this...Alexis, the daughter of my friend Margo, auditioned in Seattle but didn't make it past that point.  I wonder if they'll show her at all.  She is a good singer, but she's a theater singer more than a "pop" singer.

July of 2008???  Only in LA.  So, for the next year-and-a-half these incompetent LA drivers get to continue to endanger, maim, and kill people because they cannot stay off their assinine cell phones - have I got that right?  Because when they're on their assinine cell phones, they are killing machines - they have no clew where they're going, how they're driving, what lane they're supposed to be in and not only that, they don't give a crap because it's all about them and their inability to sit anywhere without TALKING to someone.  

Then, in July of 2008, nothing will change because the LA driver who gets fined will simply laugh every time and pay the ridiculous 20 or 50 bucks.  They don't and won't give a crap about that either - chump change to these spoiled creeps in their SUVs.  And they'll pay their kids' fines, too, and laugh while they're doing it.  You know what a fine is?  $200.  That would, at least, make people stop and think about it.  And if the fine were $500, maybe it would work.  If it were $1000, no one would be on their cells.  Of course, to me, allowing hands-free devices is equally as bad - because it's not the holding of the cell phone, it's the not paying attention to the driving because they're having a delightful conversation with someone and are off in some world other than being a careful driver.  So, there will continue to be accidents, ruined lives, and death because of the entitled, selfish cretins who MUST BE CONNECTED 24 hours a day.

Miss Karen, I’m sorry to say it is only random ringing.  Just now it was constant ringing & I had to move the bell.  Sherlock kept ringing the bell for attention.  Very cute, however we are a bit upset at him right now.  

Unbeknownst to us he got hold of a roll of toilet paper & destroyed it.  Our concern is that he ate the entire cardboard roll inside.  I can’t find it anywhere.  

To make matters worse he grabbed a hunk out of the plastic grocery bag I was holding.  Just when we thought he was going to exchange it for a treat he bolted & unfortunately ate it.

Now of course, familiar as we are with all the horror stories, we are very concerned about him

I checked out the website of Tommy Ray's - just another trendy crap place designed to be a hangout for the wealthy Studio City resident, hopefully in television or films.  When I read a mission statement that begins, "We felt empowered" I know I'm in the company of people who only have the ability to talk and live in current lingoland.  Therefore, I cannot imagine their food being anything other than what is hip and trendy, and therefore I will not patronize the jernt.  When I see the constant use of the word "aioli", a word that until one year ago I never saw on a fershluganah menu, then I know what I'm in for.  The menu is loaded with words like that - hooey.  Check it out at tommyrayscafe.com - it is to laugh.

This morning, the snow started falling at my place at around 5.  So, when I left for work, there was just enough dusting of snow to cover the ice and allow me to get out of the parking lot easily.  Unfortunately, when I came home; the three extra inches of snow that fell after I left for work, made the parking lot the nastiest it has been in days.

I got stuck going down to the parking spot, I got stuck trying to get back out of the parking spot, and I finally managed to rock my car back and forth enough to get it into a parking space, although not mine.  But there is no way I am getting my car back out tomorrow morning, so I called work and left word that I wasn't coming in tomorrow.  It is suppose to freeze again tonight, but then tomorrow everything is expected to start melting.

Today at 1:00 I left for a doctor’s appointment in Medford, about half an hour away, less if I’m rushing.  When I left there were a few, and I mean few, snow flurries.  While most the year the weather in Ashland is clearer & nicer than Medford, they rarely get snow when we have it.  To my amazement I found myself driving into a decent amount of snow and slippery roads.  

I attempted to get off at the first Medford exit only to find flares and an overturned car.  Moments later a car spun out of control two cars in front of me.  Fortunately the few cars on the road at that moment were moving very slowly & the car had plenty of room to turn around and continue in the right direction.  

I was relieved to take the next exit. With difficulty I turned left to head for my appointment, saw the Ashland sign & just got right back on the freeway.  The exit has a good, slightly uphill, curve to it and I felt relieved to make it onto the freeway, several cars didn’t.

Paula Abdul appeared on one of the local talk shows the other day.  Everyone was hoping she would explain what made the Seattle auditions so awful.  Sadly, Ms. Abdul was too drunk, or too high, or just too out of it to understand the questions the hosts were trying to ask.

You would think if her people were too busy to pay attention to her behavior; that, at least, the producers of AI would keep a little tighter gag on that woman.  It was really an embarrassment.

A. The law is a CA law, not an LA law.

B. ThePepperdine Graphic (http://graphic.pepperdine.edu/perspectives/2006/2006-09-28-cellphone.htm) agrees with you:
Quote
Cell phone bill must expand
Scott Miller
Perspectives Assistant

After six years of trying, California Sen. Joe Simitian, D — Palo Alto, finally got his anti-cell-phone-while-driving bill, SB1613, passed (effective July, 2008), with Gov. Schwarzenegger supporting the passage. However, the bill still allows hands-free set ups for drivers.

The real threat of talking while driving is not the popular misconception that the driver needs both hands on the wheel — it is that talking in itself distracts the driver. It creates a cognitive distraction from driving that other tasks do not require, i.e., changing the radio station and even having conversations with other passengers.

It creates a tunnel vision effect, where the driver, although looking at the road, will not register much of what they see, according to drivenowchatlater.com. Studies have shown that distractions do not cease with hands-free gadgets.

In 2004, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)and the University of Iowa tested whether hands-free devices yield safe drivers. The study found that they do not.

Hands-free equipment caused as much of a distraction, if not more, because of the increased time required to dial a phone call, as compared to a hand-held phone.

Long have hand-held cell phones been the scapegoat of those looking to blame high accident rates on something. But it is time to start seriously looking at, and contemplating, the other factors of this problem, such as the misconception about hands-free set-ups being a viable solution to the problem.

Let’s stop kidding ourselves into thinking that hand-held phones are the only problem.

Take it to the next level and do what a government is supposed to do, protect innocent citizens from the others who are irresponsible and endanger everyone else.

DR Jose, when I downloaded the recording to my iTunes, I deleted the "Mirabai songs."  Oy!

I will sometimes go back and give the "Mirabai Songs" another chance.  I mean, if Dawn Upshaw likes them... Well...  I'm still not too keen on them.  Or any other music by John Harbison.  I just seem to hear too much of his "method" - it seems academic to me.

One of the first concerts I went to at the Kennedy Center featured Vladimir Ashkenzy playing Brahms' First (or maybe it was the Second) Piano Concerto.  Alas, the way the concert was programmed, the featured soloist was featured after the intermission.  So...  They were premiering a new work in the first half... "Ulysses' Bow"... by John Harbison.  Needless to say, I thought it was a very long first half.

-And when I was managing the sheet music store, all the Harbison new issues that came in would sit in the bins for years(!).  :-\

All right, I'll get the Franck in the car for our trip.  I don't think I'm familiar with it yet.

But how about Fox releasing the season premiere of "24" on DVD today?


*And if you buy it, you get $10 off your purchase of a previous season's DVD set.  -At least that's what the commercial said.

**However, I "heard" about the release today while riding the elevator - they have small TVs in the elevators cars at 520 8th Ave. broadcasting bits of news.  The news about the DVD release was flashed on the screen somewhere between the first and sixteenth floor.  ;)

...When I see the constant use of the word "aioli", a word that until one year ago I never saw on a fershluganah menu, then I know what I'm in for.  The menu is loaded with words like that - hooey.  Check it out at tommyrayscafe.com - it is to laugh.
Aioli has been around for quite a long time, and was paired with dishes appropriate to this garlicy mayo.  Looking over the menu, however, I didn't see anything that was really "trendy" - it was more trend-following and commonplace.  The truly trendy sets trends.  (And their aioli probably has very little garlic in it - it might offend!   :o)

(Shocking, Charles, simply shocking!)

I cannot imagine anyone asking their waitron to "hold the aioli."  It just doesn't have the same zip, as a phrase.

Recorded ADVANCE TO THE REAR off of TCM last week. It was all I hoped it would be. Quality comedy, Stella Stevens looking good. Glenn Ford gives a stellar comic performance. Kind of cool and casual.

Anyways, while recording that the VCR (outmoded technology, I know) was left on and also recorded the bizarre film DON'T WORRY, WE'LL THINK OF A TITLE, which is a crazy curio. It seems to be a vanity production by Morey Amsterdam and features him mugging and telling just the most corny jokes while Rose Marie plays his straight man. Richard Deacon is also on hand and several other odd cameos including Moe from the Three Stooges actually playing a character other than Moe. Worth a look even though it is of pretty low quality.

Melvyn Douglas is also quite funny in ADVANCE TO THE REAR. The movie should have been in color though. I was always curious as to how they would use the songs Randy Sparks wrote for the film. He clearly did a lot of work, but a lot of stuff the New Christy Minstrels recorded got left out. It says his music was adapted by Hugo Montenegro. The song "Today," the big hit from the movie is not heard in its entirety.

I, too, have to be up a bit earlier tomorrow that usual.  The two-hour audition session I got booked for that was originally scheduled from 11:00-1:00, will now be starting at 10:30 and ending at 3:00.  *Ka-ching$ My new shelves have now been paid for!  ;)  In any case...

This will be for a "new" musical, and the casting agent sent me the music that I'll be playing tomorrow.  And since I don't have my keyboard up here currently, I'm going to need to head in a little before to get the music under my fingers.  It's not hard, just new.

Amazon is actually running a deal now for all five seasons of '24' for $124, so for fans who want to relive some of the shows great seasons, that's VERY inexpensive, and I'd say at their best (seasons 1, 4, and 5), it's superior to any action movie I've seen in the past few years for thrills, surprises, stunts, and acting.

I began my eveing with the Blu-ray version of MISSION IMPOSSIBLE III. As poor as the standard defintion DVD of the movie was (plugged up, pasty color, aliasing abounding particularly in the Vatican scenes with the walls and the steps), the Blu-ray disc is a marvel - beautiful, saturated color, rock solid images without the twitter in the SD version, amazing clarity. You could see the pores in all the actors' faces uin close-up, some make-up for blood and bruises seemed phony because of the increased clarity. Really, a reference quality HD disc.

Of course, the producers focus on the bizarre and terrible only allowing us an occasional person with some talent.

And there was one contestant, a male voice teacher (green shirt with a soul patch) that Randy took an instant dislike to and was as rude as he's ever been to a contestant. He could sing; yes, his vibrato was a little wide, but they all dismissed him outright as if he couldn't sing at all. Some people got passed through who weren't nearly as good as he was.

I also watched the new episode of DIRT tonight. Add another gay male character to prime time TV (Courtney Cox's brother), and once again, the show didn't shy away from showing him kissing another man (an action movie star in the closet) and the actor going down on his knees to show is the beginning of a sex scene.

I certainly wasn't expecting to see this! I guess I'll keep watching.

where is the Southern Voice from?

SOUTHERN VOICE (http://www.southernvoice.com/) is published out of Atlanta and is also the home site for both the New York and Washington Blade. It has news and commentary primarily aimed at a Gay and Lesbian readership - but has good articles on the Arts and dining - particularly in the Atlanta and Washington areas.
