BK, I never got Joan Ryan's CD in its original release, so I'm very much looking forward to the reissue...and I loved her in Ruthless!:  The Musical!  My questions about the reissue...will it be identical to the original release in content and pictures (except for the label, of course)?  Will it be remastered to sound better than ever?  Should I get the original release so that my collection will be complete or will the new release be enough?  Inquiring minds want to know!

Although I'm here by myself I will say Good Morning to all.

Winter temperatures have arrived in New York. When I left the apartment it was 19 degrees. It's supposed to be cold for the remainder of the week. It is January after all.

No questions at the moment. I need to wash my oatmeal bowl so I will bid you adieu for now.

Later, gaters.

I do recommend Joan Ryan's CD. It's a real winner.

The first track I think is the best first track I ever heard on a solo cd. It immediately draws you making you want to listen to the rest of the cd. The song Trust the Wind written by David Friedman is wonderfully orchestrated and dynamically sung.

The other tracks include a song that I think only she has recorded called "Good Thing He Can't Read My Mind written by Christine Lavin. A amusing "specialty" type of songs.  Also on the cd is a rousing West End Avenue and a touching  My Brother Lived in San Francisco.

 There are two different takes on classic Braodway tunes, I'm Flying and Shall We Dance? that are very different from any other recording that I've ever heard.

The other songs included on  the cd are: I Won't Last a Day Without You, Feels Like Home, The Moon & The Stars, Strangers Once Again, and I'm Coming Home Again.  The last three songs also rarely recorded songs.

There is a "bonus Track" taken from the STAGE Concert Lerner Loewe, Lane  & Friends recording a interesting combination of a hauntingly sung Follow Me and a soaring On A Clear Day You Can See Forever.

The tracks on Joan Ryan's cd are well sequenced and dare I say the best put together CD I think I have ever heard and I have heard hundreds and hundreds. A great combination of well known and "unknown" songs that are wonderfully orchestrated and arranged.
It is a cd that is repeatedly listen to me and I should have put it on my desert island list.

Joan Ryan needs to better known. A beautiful singer and performer. I have seen in concert and I look forward to seeing her again and if she records another cd I would buy it without a moment of hesitation.

So when it is up for pre-order get it!

The other tracks include a song that I think only she has recorded called "Good Thing He Can't Read My Mind written by Christine Lavin.

"Good Thing...." was recorded by Christine Lavin herself during her stint as one of the "Four Bitchin' Babes".  She recorded it for an album by the same title as the song, and I also remember a live "Bitchin' Babes" concert recording.   A great song.  One of the teachers at Catholic University used to give it out to her students.

Christine Lavin is one of those singer-songwriters who along with others like Nanci Griffiths are Julie Gold are continuing the "folk" legacy of people like Pete Seeger, Peter, Paul & Mary.

For a particularly "entertaining" record, I'd suggest her album, "Getting In Touch With My Inner Bitch".  ;)  And some of the "Four Bitchin' Babes" albums have had some inventive Beatles-type cover art.

*However, she also writes some wonderful children's songs too.

Re: last night's AMERICAN IDOL premiere.


I have not read any of the comments here yet. But here is my opinion.  The show was okay, although as i've stated before i actually prefer when the top 100 or so go to hollywood.

And in the audition shows i actually prefer watching the medium and talented people a lot more than the very bad ones.

A few people i really liked were: the black girl who was born a crack baby.  The 16 yr old guy (blondish) with a nice voice who said his parents did not support him (he called his mom after to tell her and he started crying). I also liked the brunette with frizzy long hair.

I felt really sad about the rock star guy with the deep voice. I would have liked to see him go through even if just to see if he would change his style.

I could not figure out that superfan (big blonde girl). I just can't imagine that she did not do this as a joke.

Is there something, some activity that you have never done that, at least according to the line of work you're in, the area you live, etc., that you "should" have done by now?

For example... Like many people who live in the Washington, DC, Area, I have not been to all the Smithsonian museums.  And I even like art!

Until I get to know the teams I'm unfamiliar with, I'll be cheering for the Barbies, also.  Of all the teams from the last TAR, they were the only ones I could stand (in fact, I did not bother to watch the final episode.)

And Dave and Mary do not belong in an "All-Star" edition.  The producers should have included a couple of the Linz siblings, instead.

I had TERMINATOR 2 on Blu-ray come in yesterday's mail, but I think I'll save it for the weekend. It's a long movie, and I'd rather watch shorter films and recorded TV shows during the day.

Watched THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA and TALLADEGA NIGHTS last night.  No American Yodel for me.

Liked all of the people in DEVIL - thought they did a great job.  And I have no doubt that is probably what it is like to work at a publication like Runway.  Living in Indiana, watching a movie about it is as close as I will ever come to that life.  I loved the NYC filming and seeing locations that have been written about here on HHW....including Sephora and a few others.  And the Paris locations were beautiful.

I didn't mind the last Meryl shot as some others here did - but that's horse racing.  My quibble was with her long time friend having an immediate meltdown and judgment moment when Andrea was kissed by the other guy.

TALLADEGA was pretty funny....the foul mouthed kids made me laugh, and I always like William C. Macy.

My favorite parts of the movie were the blessings spoken at the home dinner table and at Applebee's said by Will Ferrell. Hilarious, and the debate about which "Jesus" he preferred still make me laugh when I think about it.

Re: last night's "American Idol".

I'm sincerely glad I watched it.  This show's auditions are proof that much of American youth are deluded beyond measure.

That first girl who auditioned last night -- you just know she is somebody's little princess and that she is used to getting her way.  Her stubborn refusal to take no is evidence that she's manipulated many people many times.  What she cannot fathom -- and what most of the terrible performers cannot and may never fathom -- is that there ARE some things they CANNOT do if they want to, that there ARE some things they CANNOT BE because they want to be them, that they WILL NEVER BE singers if they cannot sing, and that VERY FEW PEOPLE CAN SING and that they are among the majority.

What a HOOT the entire Minneapolis show was, though...the dad who said he is "pleased as punch" that his son can sing (he can't).  The distinctive accents and pronunciations were just priceless.  We might have been at auditions for extras for "Fargo."

Paula's telling that vocal teacher that he had too much vibrato was telling.  She didn't like his mixed-up style, but she didn't know how to tell him he just didn't LOOK like an Idol...so she threw in that ignorant comment about his vibrato.  His vibrato was fine.

It certainly wasn't the goat-bleat of Chris Daughtry, whose persistent vibrato was wound up tighter than an overwound clock.  And it wasn't too wide, IMO.

It sounded like a trained voice trying to please several unpleasable folks.

What gets me riled up, however, is that any girl who goes on and sings a Broadway song well gets passed through with praise.  A guy who tries the same song is told he's TOO THEATRICAL.

Double standard.

And yes, Randy went out of his mind over that one kid.  Totally off base, too.  But....that's why we watch, isn't it!

It's the same exact CD (and I mean exact - we're using the actual physical CDs she had left, and then we'll re-press some new ones) - the packaging has been redone, however - same package in all respects except for a new bar code, our logos, and I finally take my producer credit (which I didn't back then for various reasons - I took a "creative consultant" credit originally).  No need to get the original.

More re: "American Idol":

Most revealing, to me anyway, is that immaturity level of many of those who got rejected.  Why they thought they could sing is beyond me.  The ones who couldn't remember the words...the one girl who kept saying the same lyric over and over and then going into a whisper as she tried to find other words for the tune in her head.

The boy who believe he could sing but who "juggled" and "danced".  What kind of fantasy life MUST he have?  He was pathetic.  And his family was there to support him in this sad sorry display.  Are they ALL stupid?  And his absolute hysterical crying jag after his explosion of profanity as he left the audition room.  What a BABY!  Yes, I know he's 16.  But he needs to be weaned.

The "big girl" who claimed to be Idol's biggest fan.  WOOF!  And when she was told she couldn't sing, she pranced out that "I've have vocal lessons for 10 years. Why wouldn't they have told me 10 years ago if I couldn't sing?"   I DO wish Simon had told her the answer to that question as he started to.

I agree some went forward who shouldn't have....that girl in the Army Reserve...totally inconsistent...and she'll be among the first to get cut.

So many DELUSIONAL people.  I can understand the judges' frustrations.

Because of my cough, I took Nyquill last night, and 12 hours later I got out of bed.  Good morning, all!

My schedule this week is totally out of whack because the schedule originally set up this week for both jobs has been completely thrown out of whack by my colleagues:  one has a doctor's appointment today, the other is taking longer on his outside project.  So, I've spent some time this morning trying to plan my life through Sunday.  It's frustrating.

Luckily, the computer reports continue, and each revision improves the work, so . . .

Interesting stuff about the Hollywood Walk of Fame.  But I'm confused:  If you knew someone who meets the criteria for being nominated - does the $15,000 have to be committed and in place just to nominate someone, or is it that once the person is accepted, you can then go about trying to raise the $15,000 to cover the costs?

RE AMERICAN IDOL:

BTW, I really did like the Navy man who was chosen to go on. I think he will be very, very popular.

He seemed sweet and his voice was good, but i wonder how much people will like him.  Some contestants have been better looking with less singing talent.  Although we don't even know how far he will make it in the competition.

DR Jennifer:  re: The blond guy on "AI"....it was a bit difficult following what he was saying, but the way I took it was that his parents weren't there due to monetary issues...that they have supported him in many other ways for his singing but that this was an expense they decided they couldn't bear.  They were able to send their kid, however.

I didn't take it that way mainly because when he called his mom at the end he was crying and saying "she's proud of me".

HE did say that his school choir and other things were expensive.  But i guess it was not completely clear how much his parents supported him.

I thought Joyce and Uchenna won their season in THE AMAZING RACE.

Will have to see the teams before I choose - but there are a couple I didn't like the first time, so I doubt that I will wish them well!

Yes Joyce and Uchenna did win TAR 7. They actually beat rob and amber. They are the only winners who are returning.

Of all the teams my favorites are romber and the beauty queens.

There are certain other teams who i think are nice but not competitive (dave and mary ...).

I never liked the older couple terri and ian (although apparently they came in 2nd in their year). I do not remember that.

I actually quite liked charla and mirna. I forget which one is the non-midget. But that cousin was very bright and well-travelled.

I will also be very interesting to see the new couple danielle and eric. He was from eric and jeremy and they did well. So i wonder how he will do with a different partner.

Kevin and drew were funny. I remember hating the guidos but they were fun. I think jill and john vito were boring (allstars???).

I think CBS has a different idea of allstars than i do. They would prefer to take teams that are well liked. Me i would take the most competitive teams (like romber and the beauties).

Going into the season i think romber should do very well.

If i had to speculate who will win i would say them. And i also think the beauty queens could do well (although anything can happen).  It will be intersting to see how some teams like joyce and uchenna will do. I never thought they were particularly strong.

I suspect dave and mary will go early.

I don't think a 16-year-old boy is going to do much of anything without total parental consent and support.  Sometimes, though, parents cannot financially attend every function because the costs run high.

Re: American Idol.

I actually liked that girl in the army reserve.  It's not always totally about being the best singer.  She just had so much personality. I'm glad that she at least got to go to hollywood.

One story they told that was interesting/odd was the husband/wife who flew in their secretary to sing.  It was so weird hearing her sing with her boss there (vs when he wasn't).  I wonder if she would have gone through if she had sung like that originally.

I don't think a 16-year-old boy is going to do much of anything without total parental consent and support.  Sometimes, though, parents cannot financially attend every function because the costs run high.

I'm still not sure that the point was that the parents did not fully support him.

When he mentioned how much everything cost i didn't take it to mean that they couldn't afford to go to the idol auditions.  Where was he from anyway?  I took it to mean that they didn't fully support him and that singing was really expensive.

It was just the way that he said, "she's proud of me".  If she just simply couldn't afford to go to the auditions then he still would have expected her to be proud.

He went on and on about how it made him feel that everyone else had family there supporting them.  Although who knows the real story. I guess it's up for interpretation although you could very well be right.

In 1973, when I worked the box office of the Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival, I received this phone call.  It was a deep voice that went "mumble mumble mumble . . ."
I said, "I'm having trouble hearing you.  Can you speak up?"
The voice said, "mumble, mumble, mumble . . ."
I said, "I can't hear you, sir, can you speak a bit louder?"
The voice clearly said, "This is Martha Graham! May I speak to Walter Terry?"

"Good Thing...." was recorded by Christine Lavin herself during her stint as one of the "Four Bitchin' Babes".  She recorded it for an album by the same title as the song, and I also remember a live "Bitchin' Babes" concert recording.   A great song.  One of the teachers at Catholic University used to give it out to her students.

Christine Lavin is one of those singer-songwriters who along with others like Nanci Griffiths are Julie Gold are continuing the "folk" legacy of people like Pete Seeger, Peter, Paul & Mary.

For a particularly "entertaining" record, I'd suggest her album, "Getting In Touch With My Inner Bitch".  ;)  And some of the "Four Bitchin' Babes" albums have had some inventive Beatles-type cover art.

*However, she also writes some wonderful children's songs too.

I've seen the Four Bitchin' Babes live here in Olympia...alas, without Christine Lavin.  They were all fabulous and gave a wonderful concert! ;D

For my 2 cents, I totally inferred that his parents were not especially supportive emotionally.  Just from the way that he talked about it, his expression, etc. I really viewed his talk of expense to be the kind of rationalization that people do to make things less hurtful. But that could just be me reading things into it. Maybe we'll have the chance to learn more.

Is there something, some activity that you have never done that, at least according to the line of work you're in, the area you live, etc., that you "should" have done by now?

For example... Like many people who live in the Washington, DC, Area, I have not been to all the Smithsonian museums.  And I even like art!

My family lived in Colorado for four years or so and we never went to Pike's Peak.  We went to so many other tourist places all around Colorado (even the huge Colorado centennial/USA bicentennial celebration), but Pike's Peak was the one place that I knew of that we never went to. :)

For BK, I would probably choose "relentless" or "undeterred." As a teenager, Bruce had a clear vision of what he wanted to do--at at age when most kids are totally clueless. (Or clewless, in HHW-speak.) Nothing stopped him. Where other humans fear failure, that never seemed to enter Bruce's mind. He simply proceeded. I've known many very talented people, but no one like Bruce!

My family lived in Colorado for four years or so and we never went to Pike's Peak.  We went to so many other tourist places all around Colorado (even the huge Colorado centennial/USA bicentennial celebration), but Pike's Peak was the one place that I knew of that we never went to. :)

HE:   Have you tried Pike's Peak, my dear?
         Kindly tell me if so
SHE: Yes, I've tried Pike's Peak, my dear
         But in the moning, no

I started my viewing this afternoon with last night's BOSTON LEGAL. Some really funny moments provided by William Shatner this week (I often find him irritating, but he made me laugh last night).

And I loved Shirley (Candace Bergen)'s summation in which the typical duties of a school teacher were listed.

Then, I got about a hour of TRAVELS WITH MY AUNT watched.

OMG! I didn't remember Lou Gossett OR Cindy Williams being in the movie! Of course, I hadn't seen it in probably thirty years.

The print on TCM was really pristine. I suspect Warners is going to release this on DVD this year since it looks like it's been cleaned up.

The ratings for last night's IDOL: the second largest audience in the history of the series, and by far the highest rating any entertainment show has garnered on TV this season.

The only episode of IDOL that ever outrated last night's show was the Season 2 finale with CLay Aiken and Ruben Studdard.

Pretty amaaing that the audience keeps building for this show. After five years, you'd think there would be a peak, but that plateau doesn't seem to have been reached yet.

"AI" again:  When 16-year-old singer/juggler/dancer wannabe Jason Anderson left the audition room, crushed and defeated, he put on a show for the cameras that was almost heartbreaking.

It was high-trash TV...despite his broken heart, and his gut-wrencingly unealistic ambition to sing, angry, yet futile, promises that he's gonna make it ensued.  One of his relatives said, "You're only 16." "Yeah," Jason shouted, "but I wanted to start out famous."

The next contestant to go in, Brina, who claims to be the show's biggest fan, was horror-struck...and the cameras caught her reaction (and many stories around the country have commented upon it):

Thank you DRs Cillaliz and George for the anniversary wishes.  Richard and I just had a yummiliciious dinner at The Meadows.  For dessert, we brought home the apple pie that I "purchased" at the AAUW talent auction back in December.  What I actually bought was an empty pie pan with the name and phone number of a young woman who'd make the pie whenever I wanted it.  With all the Christmas rush and treats, I decided to wait until now.  It smells so-o-o-o good.

DR Elmore, The Meadows is not closed, not even for lunch - they're open 11am-2pm.

I loved the Monkees -- when I was in sixth grade.  They were big among the teen scene WAY back then.  Yes, they were "created" as a nod to the Beatles, and their TV show (which I watched religiously) followed the formula/style of "A Hard Day's Night" and "Help!"   I liked "I'm Not Your Steppin' Stone" and "I'm Believer."  Monkee Trivia:  Stephen Stills tried out, didin't get it, but recommended his buddy Peter Tork.

Quickie report -

Der Brucer and I are back from Philly - already!

We went up there to see Matthew Bourne's Edward Scissorhands, at the Academy of Music.  Good seats, close but nottooclose.  The show?  Impressive, but it didn't bowl us over.  There were some missteps in the set-up of the storyline, missteps that led to a disappointing finish.  Still, it was impressive.  And, true to the movie the ballet is based upon, it did snow.  In the theater.  And it was real snow!  (I told you all that our seats were close.)

I'll let der Brucer launch his own critique later.  He's got some questions that need answering, that some of you may have answers for.

Recently, I was watching / listening to the SHOWTUNES channel on the cable TV.  Under their Interesting (?) Facts segment they listed that Maureen McGovern (she was singing a song from LITTLE WOMEN) had won two Academy Awards for "The Morning After" and "We May Never love Like This Again".

Does the singer that records a song for a film win an Oscar, as well?

Their interesting fact is, of course, completely incorrect.  The SONGS won the Oscars for their writers - not the singer.   Miss McGovern SANG two Oscar-winning songs is what it is.

And I had a good day myself.  I was playing for a casting director whom I had seen in about ten years.  And that was back in DC.  Before we began, he looked at me, and said, "Kennedy Center, right?"  YEP!  -And he even remembered from some of the Lestat rehearsals he had peeked in on.  It's always nice to be remembered.  For the right reasons.

*And the best part came at the end of the day when he asked if I was available to play the remainder of the callbacks next week.  :)

Very much so.

And as much as I like Amtrak - especially the Acela - since you're planning your trip this far in advance, it may be cheaper for you to fly up and back to DC on one of the air shuttles (Delta, US Airways).  With a two-week advance purchase, a round trip air shuttle costs just as much as a one-way ticket on the Acela.  And even with the cab fare into the city, you'd still come out ahead.  And that would also free up a couple hours for your day in NYC.  Something you may want to look into.

*However, if you feel like splurging on the Acela... :)

And as for "America Idol" in general...

All these "kids" want is fame and fortune.  Without none of the work, sweat, heartache, talent and time that is required for such a lofty goal.

And it's soooooo easy to see that none of these people have ever been to an audition of any sort before they went before Randy, Paula and Simon.  -And the pre-screeners.  None of them have ever been objectively - or subjectively - judged before.  And none of them have ever ASKED for someone to give them their thoughts on their supposed talent.

It boggles the mind.  It still boggles the mind.

And as was revealed during one of tonight's montages, the producers obviously ask some of the talentless candidates to come back to learn another song.  To possibly get a second chance?

Thanks for those insights.  We might be doing this as much for the east coast rail experience as anything, though.  Just how much of a splurge is the Acela?

The standard rate is now up to $185.  Each way.  It can get as low at $135 during the off-hours, but for you to make a matinee, you'd be paying the standard rate.  However, you make it from Union to Penn in just under three hours.

The regular train is $85-115 each way now.  And those take anywhere from three and half to just under four hours.

The air shuttle takes an hour, and you can get a round-trip ticket starting around $160 with advance purchase.  Sometimes lower.  And the cab ride into the city, half hour tops.

One of the biggest award night shocks I ever had.

The 1966 Emmys. THE DICK VAN DYKE SHOW had won the Best Comedy Series Emmy for four years in a row and had gone off the air. The heir apparent was universally proclaimed to be GET SMART. Everyone was expecting GET SMART to win that year. Don Adams won Best COmedy Actor, so it seemed a foregone conclusion.

The winner - THE MONKEES.

The next year, THE MONKEES in its second year on the air wasn't even nominated and was canceled at the end of its second year. GET SMART won the 1967 and 1968 awards for Best Comedy Series.

However, a detective from Brooklyn worked the case with him, and I liked that detective a lot.

I watched more of TRAVELS WITH MY AUNT, but I didn't quite get to the end of it (about 15 more minutes remain).

Katharine Hepburn was originally signed to play the leading role. She could have played it, but I wonder who they would have gotten to play the younger version of the aunt in the flashbacks. Hepburn could certainly not have played.

One of the great things about hiring Maggie Smith was that she could be made up to play the old eccentric lady but also take the make-up off and play her as a younger woman.

I love Maggie Smith, but it is a VERY stagy performance.

For once, I was ahead of Allison and her figuring it out. I even figured out the proof she could use before she dreamed about it. (Noticed it from a previous flashback.)

When I'm able to piece together the dreams before they do it for me, I know it's only an average episode.

ooh! I hoped you'd ask me that! RIO RITA is a W&W I have not seen. Doggone it, I was looking through the channel listings all week and did not run across that. If you can make me a disk of it, I would be most appreciative!!

I do not watch American Idol, but I have seen clips on tv. I believe some of the bad singers are encouraged and are told they have talent -- so that they can film them and the world can laugh at them. Honestly, most of those folks have to know they are not singers.

We're supposed to get a winter mix of snow, sleet, and freezing rain before dawn tomorrow. When I was working, a weather forecast like that would cause me a very sleepless night since I commuted 37 miles to work each day. Would school be called on account of weather? If not, would the roads be passable for ME to get there, and if so, how much extra time would I need to give myself to get there?

Now, I can sleep and not worry about such things. Sheer bliss!

I knew you were a big fan which was one reason I kept mentioning it last week. I knew there would be one OTHER person here with an interest in such an old film.

I'll burn you one tomorrow and put it in the mail on Friday.

I'll have THE KNIGHTS OF PROSPERITY and CSI: NY to watch tomorrow. Will finish TRAVELS WITH MY AUNT tomorrow, too, because I'll need the DVR space to get all the shows that are jammed into the Thursday schedule onto the DVR.

I've been here at work too long and now it's time for me to leave.  I have some things recording on the DVR, but I don't know what.  I knew that I was going to stay late tonight (to make up some time from yesterday (and I came in late today ::)), so all is well.  Now...to food!

You sir, rule. The good news is, because I was on the lookout for it, I found ADVANCE TO THE REAR, which was on way early one morning, and I never would have known that otherwise.

RIO RITA will put me one step closer to my goal of seeing every Wheeler and Woolsey film. The film that followed it, THE CUCKOOS is quite good, and similarly has some technicolor bits thrown in there.

1. Why does the Kritzerland site not have any info for upcoming releases?

2. What is the correct pronunciation of "Kritzerland"? Like Disneyland or rhyming with Switzerland?

U2 used "strewn" in Sunday Bloody Sunday
Mariah Carey used "strewn" in "4th of July"

Don't mess with the master!

He even knows who the best Monkee was. I actually think they were all talented, but Nesmith was a guy who could have had an excellent songwriting career even if the Monkees never happened.

And speaking of TV highlights... Did anyone catch today's "Ellen" (Degeneres) show?

T.R. Knight was on, and they discussed the re-igniting of the war of words as it were with his co-star.  It did look like T.R. Knight was uncomfortable, but Ellen really handled the situation very honorably.

MBarnum, I almost forgot you were asking me about Boston Blackie. I may have been the Boston Blackie fan you were wondering about. I used to watch episodes of the TV show on the Nostalgia Network when that was a cable channel.

When were/are the Wheeler and Woolsey films you mentioned. MattH, did you ever get a recording of RIO RITA?

The Wheeler and Woolsey movies were on earlier this month, I think.

I must have confused the Boston Blackie TV series with the movies....I have seen neither version...but there is one Boston Blackie TV episode I MUST find...the episode is "the Big H Murder" and features a young June Kenney!!

The Cuckoos is one I sure wish TCM would show! I have a very, very bad VHS copy of it.

On ebay, someone is selling all Boston Blackie movies plus five episodes of the TV show, and an Ellery Queen movie to boot. All in one package. That's just at one glance, so I bet you can find that episode you want.

I saw just a little clip of it. It all is making the other guy look pretty bad to his castmates and the world at large. Not merely insensitive, but also a liar.

The first show I remember seeing on TV as a tad of a lad of a sprig of a twig of a young boy was Boston Blackie.  I haven't seen the show since and I can tell you exactly how it opened - with a shadow of Blackie on a wall, checking his gun.
