Good morning, all!  Yesterday was a long day in Toyland, and today will be the same.  Tom Murray arrived safely from Chicago - I'll tell him you're enjoying the Flaherty/Stein show, DR George - and we edited three numbers from THE LADY OF THE SLIPPER.  Today we may get through four, although I doubt we will finish Act One this weekend.

Beyond that, I have nothing to say.  Absolutely nothing.

Wayne Maunder was Custer - and Fox took money out of his salary for fixing his teeth.  When his agent objected, they relented.  He ended up with a flop series and nice choppers.

Good morning all!

Since i am not sure if i will get to post later, i thought i'd comment on what i will watch on tv tonight.

DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES and BROTHERS & SISTERS are repeats (after only 1 or 2 new episodes???).  So i guess i will watch NBC tonight.  

We have the first live show of GREASE YOU'RE THE ONE THAT I WANT (starting at 7pm). And then APPRENTICE.  I may also watch or record STUDIO 60 (which we get sundays).

I will be curious how the voting goes for GREASE. Not just who people will vote for. But how the voting occurs. Is it a limited number of phone calls. Is there internet voting?

Sunday.  Thirteen degrees.

Baby Sonja is a delight - and in at least one movie she played TWO characters because people just couldn't get enough of Baby Sonja.  She was cute - but wore too much lipstick for a preteen.

She of course grew up to be Neetu Singh - the Bollywood Ginger Rogers to Rishi Kapoor - the Bollywood Fred Astaire.

"Ginger" married "Fred" in what must have been the Bollywood version of a wedding - in 1979, and Neetu retired at age 21!

Good Morning!

Well... I have to say, I'm liking my dad's new flat panel TV - even though it took me a few minutes to realize that it had to warm up before it turned on-on.  And, I had forgotten just how comfortable the living-room couch is here...  I ending up falling asleep sometime last night, and just woke up about an hour ago.

It's supposed to get cloudy later, but it certainly is beautiful outside now: not a cloud in the sky. Felt warmer than I expected it to as well. TOmorrow we dip back into cold temperatures for much of the week. Today should be lovely.

I'm looking forward to watching the men's skating that Irecorded last night. I saw who won on the internet this morning, and his performance was described as "the skate of a lifetime," so I'm looking forward to seeing it.

And the winner ended up 30 points ahead of his next competitor. This one was the opposite of the ladies' competition which was decided by less than a point.

Otherwise today, I'll be with Charlie Chan at the races and with Lily Mars on Broadway.

Like DR Jennifer, I'll be watching the GREASE show (it does begin an hour earlier than usual.) At 9, I'll switch to ROME and then at 10, a new CROSSING JORDAN (and I'll record EXTRAS.)

DR MBarnum - On yesterday's morning's "Weekend Today" show, they did a segment on a theatre complex in North Bergen County (New Jersey) that shows Bollywood movies.  I just tried finding a link to the story on the Today Show site, but couldn't find anything.  However, I did come across this story - which might be a good reason for you to head back east sooner rather than later:

Curtain may soon come down on oasis of Bollywood in N.J. (http://northjersey.com/page.php?qstr=eXJpcnk3ZjcxN2Y3dnFlZUVFeXkzJmZnYmVsN2Y3dnFlZUVFeXk3MDQyNjU0)

Post by: Matt H. on January 28, 2007, 07:14:08 AM
DR Jennifer, January never offers us a complete month of new episodes of shows. Networks must save new shows for the ratings sweeps months of February and May, so we only get an occasional new episode during January, March, and April. It's been like that as long as I can remember.

Sunday morning greetings!  It's a bright winter day here in SW Ohio, with snow flurries.  I had a nice sleep-in ('til after 8am).

When I got home from work yesterday, DH Richard and I installed our new DVD/VCR, ordered a pizza, and watched our first movie, Shadowlands, using the new set-up.  It was nice to sit in the comfy chairs in the family room, instead of at the dining room table (where we had to sit to watch a DVD on Richard's computer).

Yes, we sure did, DR Edisaurus.  But the seminary with which DH Richard is affiliated (via distance learning for a MA in Ministry) is offering:

C. S. Lewis Visits Nashotah (http://www.nashotah.edu/lewiscourse.htm)

which I'm trying to follow independently.

Even though the story was sad, we enjoyed the Oxford ambiance.

A friend of mine does a wonderful one-man C.S. Lewis show. Very poignant---and funny! He has performed this in the UK several times at universities and it went over quite well...despite his slight southern accent!

I'd wondered if something like that would be part of the Nashotah course, but it seems to be more reading/lecture oriented.

The one-man/one-woman show concept is interesting to me.  The Ohio Humanities Council puts on a summer Chautauqua series that utilizes a group of re-enactors around a common theme.  We have attended for the past several years and thoroughly enjoyed the programs.  This year's theme is:

World War II (http://www.ohiohumanities.org/chaut/index.htm)

Also, I've had an idea for about a year and a half for a one-woman show I'd like to develop for myself, but it may have to wait until I retire!

DR JoseP, I have found that a theater in Beaverton (about a 40 minute drive from Salem) shows Bollywood movies on a semi-regular basis. I keep meaning to go up and catch a movie there but everytime one is shown that I want to see it ends up being on a day that I can't make it. But in a couple of weeks they will have a new John Abraham film showing and I will try to go see it.

DTM, I remember MAMA MALONE! Although I don't remember the theme song.

The darling Diana Darrin's son Evan Richards played one of the kids on that show.

My choice for favorite flop show theme song would be the theme from ANGIE. Love that song.

Oh, and Jose, yes I am very pleased that WATER is up for an Academy award. I hope John Abraham get's to be in the audience, and on stage if it should win. I knew it was filmed in Canada, but didn't realize it was actually a Canadian film (using a lot of Bollywood actors).

India entered the film WARIS SHAH, but it wasn't picked.

Since I've been listening to a couple of early 60s TV show albums recently, I do love the David Raksin theme to Ben Casey and the Goldsmith theme to Dr. Kildare.  Doctor shows apparently brought out the best in people.  I wonder who did the theme to Doctor's Hospital, the show I guest-starred on for the premiere episode?  And who did the theme to Marcus Welby, another TV show I always forget I did a small role on?  I have somewhere the thank you note that Robert Young wrote - that man was so gracious - what other major TV star would write thank you notes to anyone who appeared on his show?

Just spoke to Mr. Grant Geissman and today is the day when we finally fix whatever problem happened to the Kritzer Time CD - when he transfered our mix to CD all the vocals were sunk in reverb so thick I sound like I'm four blocks away from the band - something got screwy somewhere, because I would never have something like that, and it's bugged me and it's why I haven't fulfilled requests for that CD in years.  So, we'll redo it today, and then I may just put all three Kritzer CDs onto one CD and have some copies made up.

Has there only been one song written for a commercial that has actually become a hit?  I know they tried a second time with a song called It Won't Hurt To Try It (It's Not Gonna Hurt Anymore) which had two versions, one sung by my old pal, Mr. Michael Burns.  That song was written for a Clearasil commercial.  Is that how to spell Clearasil?  It doesn't look right.  I have the 45 for It Won't Hurt To Try It buried deep in storage.

Dear Miss Karen.......so, was boo-key just a quiet normal obediant little kid, or did the usual signs of "talent and prodigy" surface early.  I know in my case, I was a weird mix of both.

But then, I'm still a weird kid.  [ No comment is needed, from TCB, OzTom, derB, and especially elmore!]

A gifted child, of course! (But you're asking his mother) His first sign he was destined for performing arts?  At 11 months -- when he would do a little tap dance on the coffee table to my dad singing the "Mexican Hat Dance."  If you didn't clap when he finished,  he'd curl his tiny hands in tight fists, stomp his feet, and make this noise like Frankenstein "grrrring."  No, I hadn't already bought him little baby tap shoes -- those standard high-top, white baby shoes made a sound that was close enough.  (I'm sure I'll hear from der Brucer about allowing a child to get up on the furniture and scuff up the coffee table...)...

But in a couple of weeks they will have a new John Abraham film showing and I will try to go see it.

Is it this one: Salaam E Ishq: A Tribute to Love (http://www.searchindia.com/search/bollywood-movies/salaam-e-ishq-movie-review.html)

Quote

Reviewer's Summary - A Never Ending Ordeal
Language: Hindi
Year: January 26, 2007 in the U.S.
Actors: Salman Khan, John Abraham, Govinda, Anil Kapoor, Akshaye Khanna, Vidya Balan, Priyanka Chopra, Shannon Esra, Sohail Khan, Isha Koppikar, Juhi Chawla, Ayesha Takia, Anjana Sukhani
Director: Nikhil Advani
Producer: Mukesh Talreja & Sunil Manchanda
Story: Nikhil Advani
Screenplay: Saurabh Shukla, Suresh Nair & Nikhil Advani
Music: Shankar, Ehsaan & Loy
Lyrics: Sameer
Dialogs: Saurabh Shukla


Salaam E Ishq - No Tribute to Love but a Lengthy Nightmare

Quick, drop the guillotine on the Bollywood baboons that brought us the lengthy horror show called Salaam E Ishq.

Inspired by the 2003 Hollywood romantic comedy Love Actually, Salaam E Ishq is that unique Bollywood movie that has absolutely no saving graces.

Featuring a cricket-team-size motley crew of current and yesteryear top stars, Salaam E Ishq proves that more is less when it comes to Bollywood.

From the first frame to the last, Salaam E Ishq is painful torture for unsuspecting viewers duped into the movie hall by the big names on the marquee.

As if one repetitive love story was not tiresome enough in a Hindi movie, Salaam E Ishq bores us with six love stories.

Salaam E Ishq fails at multiple levels.

Iguana's Stubborn Erection to Get the Chop

ANTWERP, Belgium (Jan. 25) - Mozart, an iguana with an erection that has lasted for over a week, will have his penis amputated in the next couple of days.

Veterinarians at Antwerp's Aquatopia had sought to treat the animal's problem, but decided removal was the only solution because of the risk of infection. The good news for Mozart and his mates is that male iguanas have two penises.

Thank god for spare parts!

Next, I watched the Men's long program at the national championships. I knew who had won and who had skated well or poorly, so none of that was a surprise.

What was a surprise was that two of our finest male skaters weren't there: Ryan Jahnke and Matt Savoie. I didn't read anything about their retiring from amateur skating, so when I saw the group of guys who were among the top tier, I was shocked at how many I was unfamiliar with (and after I saw them skate, I was not surprised they were unknown - terrible).

Lysechek was brilliant unquestionably. I've never seen him skate with that much flair or passion, and he richly deserved his score and the gold. Ryan Bradley has always been a showman, and I was pleased to see him not fall apart on his jumps. Johnny Weir is coming off an injury that took him out of the Grand Prix finals, and I didn't hear any of the commentators talking about that. Not making excuses for him; he skated a lackluster short and long program, but usually with other skaters, when there are physical problems, the excuses are offered up ad nauseum. Not with Johnny. I have a feeling he's alienated some folks out there.

Yes, that is the one the opens next week!

der Brucer

It's my maiden name -- so he's named after my dad (who was the last male Cason on that branch of the family tree).  The family story has it that 3 brothers came to the Carolinas (which all Casons in the US supposedly sprang from) -- North or South is in debate -- (although my G-Gdad was from S. C.) to escape the Huguenot persecution in France.  Further study has shown that the surname Cason originated in England -- deriving from folks from the town of Cawston in county Norfolk -- Carson also is bastardization of it (of course, the Carsons say it's the other way around).  Cason dates back to about the 17th century.  It has also been spelled Casen or Casson -- but a true Cason spells the right way -- Cason.

Good Afternoon!

Well, I guess it was a good decision that I changed around my moving schedule this past week, otherwise, I would have missed my father's birthday party/lunch today that my mother arranged.  -His birthday is later in the week, but she held the gathering today.  We all gathered at their favorite Chinese restaurant where we feasted on Peking Duck and whatever food they had on the buffet.  My brother, Mike, was the only other son able to make it today, but he also brought his kids - my nieces and nephew - with him, so I was also able to get in some "Uncle Jojo" time today too.

The majority of the guests were friends of my parents, lots of uncles and aunts.  *Of course, since we're Filipino, they weren't my "real" uncles and aunts - once the mothers become friends, the kids automatically become related.  I've literally known some of these uncles and aunts my whole life.  It was good seeing them again, and I also finally got to meet one my uncle's new wife.

*And to make me feel "old", one of my aunts informed me that here grandson is now a freshman.  In college.  How time flies!

And, yes, there was cake.  They got a cheesecake from one of the "legendary" bakeries in the area, Pastries By Randolph.  It was a cheesecake, but it was no ordinary cheesecake.  It had a graham cracker crust, and it was also topped with a thin layer of sponge cake.  And the sponge cake layer was topped with fresh fruit and glazed.  And surrounding the cake was a ring of lady fingers; when the cake first came out of the box, I thought it was a Charlotte of some sort.  YUM!

And the restaurant threw is three large "goblets" of oranger sherbet. :)

There are as many variants on Tuna Glop as there are Cason puns.

They all seem to share tuna, peas and every 60's housewife's favorite - Cream of Mushroom Soup.

SInce I can not abide hot tuna and Woody hates prefers not to eat peas, this dish will not likely make an appearance hereabouts.

Yes, and my mother asked about some items I may have to go back and check on.  The one thing I really wish I had gotten is a really good set of knives.  What do you recommend?

All you really need in a 8 or 10 inch chef's knife, or you can go the Santoku route - with or without the grantons (the ones with a scalloped edge) - and a good paring knife.  Knife sets will usually contain a couple of knives you will never use, so... However, if a set of knives ends up costing the price of one good chef's knife... Well...

Since you have a Rachel Ray pan, she has a two-knife set that is pretty good.

Otherwise, buy what feels good to you.  If you can take the knife out of the package and check the feel and weight in your hand that would be ideal.  Wusthof and Henckels are traditional and trustworthy brands.

Looker, which I haven't seen since 1981, is quite interesting in certain ways.  It's as bad as it always was, but it was very cutting edge in terms of what it was saying, and, in fact, a lot of it has come to pass - I believe (and someone can correct me if I'm wrong) that Looker is the first time the words Computer Generated Imagery (CGI, in Internet lingo) was ever used in a mainstream film - this was a year before the release of Tron.

Five minutes to "Grease: You're The One That I Want"...

It really is too bad that they can't do the live rounds from New York City, from Broadway, due to the time difference.  Although, it would be interesting to see how the show would do in a later time slot on the West Coast.

Don't know where you get that she's been acting fro only 4 months, She's been acting since she was 5, singing since before she could talk and Blew us away in "Millie"! She can be trusted with any broadway role and her fans from across the country will be clamoring to see her. She's sooo deserving, in every way!!!et

They come in 4", 6", 8" and 10" sizes.  They make it easy to store knives safely in a drawer, and they also make it easier to travel with your knives too.  I blame Alton Brown for turning me on to them.  -Williams-Sonoma usually has them.

Yes.

And I also see people stay the same.  And sing the same song.  And ask me if I know the song.  ("Well, since I've played it for you at least ten times in the past year and a half..."*)  For years.

And I also see people decline.  For years.

They're really singing.  It's hard to lip-synch flat and off-key.

As for the accompaniment... There's a live band on stage there, but, I have a feeling like they used to do for "Star Search" and even "American Idol" (from what I understand), the band records the tracks earlier in the week, and then basically fakes it on the live broadcast.  The reasoning being that it insures that the sound mix will be correct, and that it provides a consistency for the live performer.  :-\

Well, there's only two explanations as to why she wants people to think she has no experience - 1) she's been asked to do so by the producers of the show, or 2) she's not telling the truth and is trying to be manipulative.  If it's the latter, someone is giving her bad advice.  Guy Haines doesn't sing with amateurs and BK doesn't hire them to sing Japanese horror movie songs.

Title: Re:FINE FETTLE
Post by: Jennifer on January 28, 2007, 07:13:51 PM
Well, there's only two explanations as to why she wants people to think she has no experience - 1) she's been asked to do so by the producers of the show, or 2) she's not telling the truth and is trying to be manipulative.  If it's the latter, someone is giving her bad advice.  Guy Haines doesn't sing with amateurs and BK doesn't hire them to sing Japanese horror movie songs.  

I would imagine maybe it's #!. Because there is no way that the producers do not know that she was millie.

But i'm also not sure why they would want to downplay the experience. They have played up austin's HAIRSPRAY experience. And even Jason C (who was in ALTAR BOYS) tonight mentioned it in his bio piece.  Plus Laura mentioned she was starring as Sandy in Minnesota.

Discussion of tonight's GREASE YOU'RE THE ONE THAT I WANT, INCLUDING SPOILERS.

spoilers


As for tonight's show, i'm not sure what to make of the judges favorites (they each had to pick their favorite danny and sandy of the night).

I will say that i was not overly impressed with any of the dannys.  I like chad and max. Although max's bio piece was a real turn off. He basically said that he's been fired from 13+ jobs in the past 2 years because he's no good at any of them (that's how you want to promote yourself??) But i still find that he really gets into every song and acts his heart out.

As for the twist, i really do like ashley A. a lot. She has the right look for sandy and she exudes star quality. But she is by far the weakest singer. And she was the only female to truly falter tonight. I hope that she doesn't go home this week because i would like to see if she can improve. I suspect she will be sort of popular with the public. But my gosh they took a huge risk bringing her back. She is the only one of the sandys who is no where near ready to star on broadway. Not even close.

My favorite sandys were probably kathleen (church girl) and juliana.  I was most impressed with kate's singing. I like her voice, but i'm not crazy about her.

If i had to get rid of one this week it would be allie. She sings okay. But i just don't think she has a strong enough presence.  But i think the one who blew it tonight was ashley a.

Oh and Ballerina ashley did not do it for me tonight. I really liked her a lot in past weeks. But i did not like her performance or how she sang tonight at all.

As for the dannys. I think matt (jock brought back) was the weakest. But if i had to get rid of one it would probably be Kevin. I also did not care for derek too much.

What i really want though is to start seeing them paired up.  Because we really need to see the chemistry. A bunch of them are good singers. But what really matters is how they go together.

Yah i guess he did. I mean at least he mentioned it.  Although he didn't have time to elaborate.

The thing about juliana though is that i think that if people knew she was millie then they would like her more.  Knowing that she could carry a huge show like that would make me think she could actually be sandy.

The Fellini is a masterpiece - the Bertolucci is a dated critics' darling of a film that just doesn't hold up or work anymore,  IF one liked it when it came out.  It's interesting that they both pushed boundaries, but the Fellini is and always has been more interesting, with better characters and actors who aren't trying to, well, I don't know what Marlon was doing but I prefer Marcello.

Has there only been one song written for a commercial that has actually become a hit?  I know they tried a second time with a song called It Won't Hurt To Try It (It's Not Gonna Hurt Anymore) which had two versions, one sung by my old pal, Mr. Michael Burns.

My favorite song from a show that didn't make it is "Makin' It" sung by David Naughton.  It didn't become a hit song until several years later, though, IIRC.

I loved that song!  I always thought that David Naughton was really cute, too. ;)

I can also tell you that January 2007, even with a few days to go is already our most successful posting month in the history of haineshisway.com.  We smashed our previous record, which was March of 2006 - the highest before that was January of 2005.  In January of 2005 we had the astounding feat of about 9100 posts for that month.  Then, in March of 2006 we had a more astounding 9800 posts.  For this month, if we haven't already we'll soon be passing the 10,000 mark.

ALW was the judge on the UK's "Sound Of Music" reality/audition show.

I had the EXACT opposite opinion of the Dannys and Sandys on GREASE tonight. I saw at least three Dannys who impressed me enough to be able to do the show proud. I didn't flip over any of the Sandys. Juliana was by far the strongest vocalist, but she didn't exhibit nearly as much personality on stage while singing as a couple of the others. If I had to pick a Sandy, I'd go with Laura who had Sandy's sweetness and charm and a pleasant voice.

Post by: Matt H. on January 28, 2007, 08:55:16 PM
I thought Austin sang and performed the other Dannys into the ground, but he reminds me a little of Harry Connick in the face. I thought Chad had a decent enough voice and also took command of the stage during his number. Jason and Max both had fine vocals, too.

We need to get word to Alton that he can blame you, in return.

Yes---I just drove by his house on my way home from our second birthday celebration with some friends and see that he's in town. (His house is all lit up.)

The last time I saw Alton, we were all eating brownies at these same friends' house. We decided to call them "Alton Brownies" in his honor.

But what a STUPID decision to bring back Matt and Ashley A. They cut them for a good reason: their voices are far too weak to be able to sing the leads in this show and they have ZERO stage presence. Neither could EVER pull it off at this level with the amount of time they'd have. (Honestly, I'm not sure they would do much at community theater level.)  Not only that, they just aren't used to performing in front of an audience. When one looked at Austin or Kate and the ease and confidence with which they took the stage, Ashley and Matt's limitations were just brazenly obvious.

It's a nice dream to think an unknown, untapped talent could waltz his or her way into the lead of a Broadway show, but the truth is that it takes YEARS of training to be able to pull off the effortlessness that impresses an audience paying Broadway prices.

Drama TV Actress

Comedy Series ensemble

Acting four months?  I cannot stomach this stuff.  I hired her when she was still in high school.  She's toured in a Broadway show, and done some regional productions of big shows.  I wonder if she's taken down all those photos from her myspace page.

Actually, it says "Acting:  4 months" under "Training," so she probably took a few classes but then got the jobs and learned a lot by doing and is probably quite the natural, anyway.  So it's more of a sin of omission than actual lying.

As for the GREASE voting. I did vote for Austin and Chad. Neither line was ever busy during the entire two hours of calling time. I didn't call everyone's line like I do with AMERICAN IDOL to see who's busy, and who isn't, but I get the feeling that show's mediocre ratings haven't prompted an outpouring of calling to tie up the phone lines.

Just spoke to Mr. Grant Geissman and today is the day when we finally fix whatever problem happened to the Kritzer Time CD - when he transfered our mix to CD all the vocals were sunk in reverb so thick I sound like I'm four blocks away from the band - something got screwy somewhere, because I would never have something like that, and it's bugged me and it's why I haven't fulfilled requests for that CD in years.  So, we'll redo it today, and then I may just put all three Kritzer CDs onto one CD and have some copies made up.

I think that it's a very good idea!  You want to give Guy Haines' fans the chance to hear EVERY song that he's has recorded, don't you? :D

Good Evening!  Good Morning!

Well, after about three hours of sorting...

To my friend's consignment store: 60+ plush animals (teddy bears, monkeys, Beanie Babies, Micky's, Minnie's, etc.), a Charlie the Tuna novelty phone (I have no idea where I picked that up), and old, portable inkjet printer, two CD players, some coffee table art books, etc., etc., etc.

Set aside for Goodwill: Clothes!  Sweaters, sweatshirts, shorts, pants, etc., etc., etc.  -I'm amazed I actually kept some of these clothes during my last "sort and purge" - about 90% of them were already too big for me by then.  -And three boxes of books from a "library" that I "inherited" from someone else.

In the trash: Some clothes, some old papers, some paperback books that are falling apart, etc., etc., etc.

So...  It was kind of cathartic going through all that stuff.  Many things were easy to let go, but I did come across some things that I had to think about for a second or two.  And, yes, I did end up keeping some things.  But they all fit into one medium-sized plastic crate.

Alas, there are at least 10 file boxes of "stuff" - old receipts, old programs, papers, pictures, knick-knacks, etc., etc., etc.  And, yes, I should have gone through those boxes while I was down here at the end of last year, but... I can't get upset about it.  I'm thinking I'm going to leave a couple of boxes down here, and take care of them at some later date.  But I'm also thinking I should just go ahead and load everything onto the truck on Tuesday, take it all up to New York, and have it take up floor and shelf space in my room.  I just need to be reminded about all of it.  Everyday.  And since it's all been "out of sight, out of mind" for the past two, three years... I need to actually do something about it.  Now.  And I really don't need anything else "keeping" me in Richmond or Fairfax.  Especially if it's a just a box of junk papers.

-And, yes, I do have more "boxes of stuff" in my storage unit in Richmond, so...
