Directors Guild bans DVD screeners

The Directors Guild of America has announced that it won't allow studios or independent distributors to mail DVD screeners to its 13,400 members during the upcoming awards season, contending that the mailings might have an unfair advantage over films that are not able to be distributed due to limited marketing budgets.

THEN AGAIN (http://goldderby.latimes.com/)

DVD screener decision will cost DGA million$T

he Directors Guild of America will pay a huge price for the decision it announced this week not to permit DVD screeners to be sent to its 13,400 members. A rough dollar amount can even be attached to it: Millions. That's how much money, for example, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences — which has a membership of similar size — earns from its DVD biz surrounding Emmy campaigns over a few years. In the race for film awards, other guilds like SAG and the Writers Guild of America don't earn nearly as much, but they still reap big bucks from handling the DVDs shipped to its award voters. In the past no DVDs were shipped to DGA members in the absence of a formal policy on the matter, but now that there is one, the price may be high.

That video of Cariou and Lansbury is better than the one I have fantastic! It's amazing how you can forget just how amazing that score is until you hear it again... Truly one of the best ever written...

I could not agree more. It is one of my favorites.

Well, I think it's time for me to have a glass or two of water, and then head to bed.  And when I wake up in a couple of hours, I will see where the day takes me.

Goodnight.

Oh, my...I'm watching/listening to Len Cariou and Elizabeth Taylor in the movie version of "A Little Night Music." TRULY DREADFUL!

By the by...there's audio of the first preview of THE LITTLE MERMAID on YouTube, as well. Ms. Sierra Boggess (Ariel) is fantastic singing "Part of Your World," and the orchestrations are fantabulous.

Quote
Aaron Russo, 64, film producer, manager

LOS ANGELES - Aaron Russo, who managed Bette Midler and went on to produce such films as "Trading Places," has died at age 64.

Born in Brooklyn in 1943 and raised in Long Island, Russo began promoting rock and roll shows at a local theater while still in high school, according to a biography he wrote and posted on his Web site. When he later opened his own nightclub in Chicago, Russo said he promoted some of the most successful rock acts of the 1960s including Janis Joplin and The Grateful Dead.

In the 1970s, Russo managed Bette Midler, producing the Tony award winning "Clams on the Half-Shell Revue" starring the singer. During that time he also managed The Manhattan Transfer.

Russo eventually turned to producing feature films including "The Rose" which starred Midler in 1979 as a self destructive rock star and later "Trading Places" in 1983 which starred Eddie Murphy and Dan Aykroyd.

In 2006, Russo finished work on a documentary titled "America: Freedom to Fascism," which was billed as an expose of the Internal Revenue Service.

Good morning, all!  No, DR Tomovoz, I have a short trek to Toyland this morning, mainly to retrieve items I forgot to take with me yesterday.  I'm working on a proposal, and I need my ammunition.

My only other plans for the day are a bit of work on the proposal, and dinner with the Gilfrys.  I may run over to the Raines' home and hug Charlotte one more time. Her mother Dona and I were talking about how much we will miss her.  Last night, during the intermission, she gave me a look and I swear I had never noticed such a resemblance to Dona D Vaughn before! I won't see her until Christmas, and never before have four months seemed so interminable.  I was selfishly pushing for University of Cincinnati since it's only 40 minutes from my hometown, and I suspect my trips to Ann Arbor will be few.

Our tenant (man, it feels weird to say that) came over yesterday to check out the space and get an idea of where she will put her furniture.

Usually when we go out of town we do a mass cleaning and then a stranger (cat sitter) visits the house, so I bet the kitties think we're leaving. Won't they be surprised to find that we're ALL going on a trip!

Both of the HEROES episodes I watched had running commentaries with them. One was a scattershot affair with three guys (two actors and one of the writers) jabbering away without listening to each other and not allowing the audience to hear clearly what was being spoken. The other had a writer and director clearly talking in measured tones about their work on the episode making for a much better listen.

Both Levin and Clinton have called four al-Maliki's ouster.

I'm all five his ouster, too.

For Cillaliz:

IMMIGRATION ISSUES:

Suppose we have arrested an undocumented immigrant in for a non violent offense (something for which a jail term of less than two years might be expected):
If the offender is willing to plead guilty, accept a sentence of 1 year, suspended, and volunteer for instant deportation; and, this arrangement is satisfactory to the prosecution, is there a way, at arraignment to effect this deal?

I'm looking at ways to address the Sanctuary cities issue. -

We should require the authorities to establish residency status (properly needed for a bail hearing).

If someone in custody is not a legal resident, then they should be incarcerated until trial or turned over to ICE for deportation (but we all know ICE has not the means to effect mass deportations).

Allowing a plea as stated above would remove the defendant from the country and provide a real disincentive (automatic incarceration) for re-entering illegally.

(I would also make a stipulation that should a defendant enter into such an agreement, that conviction would not be a cause for an automatic rejection of a down-stream request for a visa.)

der Brucer

Note: requiring the authorities to inquire as to residency status of everyone officially approached is folly - the chillimg effect on community security would be devastating, and we are currently unable to address the consequences of identifying numerous undocumanted folks.

Larry, you often mention Charlotte, but I had imagined her as a LITTLE GIRL! Why, she's all grown up! How nice that the two of you have such a fine relationship.

Well, she was nine when we started going to movies: EVER AFTER was the first; I remember that DRAGONHEART, which I thought she would love, terrified her and we left after twenty minutes or so.  

When she first started walking, Ron would walk her over over when he would stop by to borrow music or recordings, and she met a lot of the neighbors on my floor. My artist neighbor Judy always asks about her. One day, when she was around three, he walked her past my building and she stopped and asked if they were going to visit me. When I occasionally babysat her here, she loved to play with the wind-up toys, like chattering false teeth and various bugs, I used to have on my piano.  My memory is that I gave them all to her, but I also have a memory of visiting with her and her mother while all these crazy wind-up toys rattled around the floor.

I wish I had a scanner; I have a great photo of me holding her the day she and Dona came home from hospital.  She isn't more than a week old.

They finished the British run back in early june and from one of the clips she did make it to the final round. However she did win and did get to perform for the queen. Simon Cowell did retract the recording contract citing the reasons that he felt she should be a kid for a while before getting into the business. I would not be surprised if he keeps tabs on her. I can only imagine what she will sound like in a few years.

Help Wanted: Employers in West Can't Find Enough Workers

The owner of a fast food joint in Montana's booming oil patch found himself outsourcing the drive-thru window to a Texas telemarketing firm, not because it's cheaper but because he can't find workers.

Record low unemployment across parts of the West has created tough working conditions for business owners, who in places are being forced to boost wages or be creative to fill their jobs.

John Francis, who owns the McDonald's in Sidney, Mont., said he tried advertising in the local newspaper and even offered up to $10 an hour to compete with higher-paying oil field jobs. Yet the only calls were from other business owners upset they would have to raise wages, too. Of course, Francis' current employees also wanted a pay hike.

"I don't know what the answer is," Francis said. "There's just nobody around that wants to work."

The words and stories of William Shakespeare have been cherished, imitated and immortalized in song by artists for generations -musicals like West Side Story, Kiss Me Kate and The Boys From Syracuse all draw their inspiration from the writer's most timeless plays. Now, three young guys make their New York cabaret debut at Birdland with an original, hilarious and ultimately compelling look at the world of music based on the Bard's work. Some you'll know, some you won’t – from hits, flops, the unreleased and even the unfinished, join the GUYTUNES for an unforgettable night, as they Sing Shakespeare! The GUYTUNES are a unique new cabaret act comprised of Nick Blaemire (Off Broadway's Altar Boyz), Justin Keyes (Broadway's The Apple Tree) and Jason Michael Snow (Goodspeed Opera House's The Pirates of Penzance). These three fresh, up and coming performers are making quite a joyful noise on the cabaret circuit, full of "strong, clear voices," "adventurous choices in material," and "sharp stage presence." After selling out a critically acclaimed, extended run at the prestigious Signature Theatre in Arlington, VA, the GUYTUNES are ready to take New York by storm. If you're ready to hear your favorite songs revitalized, and be introduced to new ones you'll never forget, come hear some GUYTUNES!

The meeting was long and boring, but everyone got their points across, especially about all the extra costs we're all going to incur.  I gotta tell you.  But I have a great tech director (he's doing two other shows at the Acorn) who really has gone to bat for us and won us all of our important needs, including wig mics rather than those atrocities that run along the cheek, and being able to get rid of a scrim that all the other shows seem to want, so that we can project onto the cyc - projecting through a scrim ONTO a cyc would look distorted, so that was an important battle.

However, the most astounding thing I've ever seen on a video set was on disc five -  a game called Matt's Mind Reader (Matt Parkman is a character on the show who can read people's thoughts.)

(All of these things are done in your head. You enter no codes into the DVD player. The only thing you ever hit is the enter key to go to the next screen) You start with a two digit number. You add the two digits together and subtract it from the original number. You find the picture of the hero that matches the number you've arrived at in your head. You hit the answer key, and there pops up the picture of the hero you had in your head.

I'm telling you, it's ASTOUNDING! I don't know HOW it knew which number I had in my mind to start with or to end up with and I tried the game three times and it got the answer correct (three different numbers and three different heroes) every single time.

IT FREAKED ME OUT!!

Tonight I will have the two remaining episodes to watch. I'll have the bonus featurettes (there are several of them, but I don't think any of them run any longer than ten minutes). Then, I'll go back to disc 1 and watch the unaired pilot of the show.

And then I will be finished with the set.

I must confess I know nothing about how to use it, how to "friend" people (strange verb, that) and vice versa.  One of the many wonderful things people have done to me while I'm embroiled in writerly tasks.

It's been a week of punching up... every joke's been gone over, in a not-always-fruitful search for something better.  And I'm taking another look at the "feels" of the songs.  One ballad had a G/C as its second chord, and that always bothered me because it sounds so distinctly un-1950s.  Didn't come up with the replacement until this weekend.  Playing "Love Look Away" (an echt 50s ballad) for DW Joy helped stimulate the idea.

Alone in a motel in Pomona on a Saturday night.

So, what can you do on a Saturday night, alone?
Who needs a view on a Saturday night, alone?
If it's a Saturday night and you are single,
You sit with a paper and fight the urge to mingle.

And home is a place where you gotta go back, alone
Home is a place where the future looks black, alone
I like the Sunday Times all right, but not in bed
Alive and alone on a Saturday night is dead!

I've had a wonderful dinner at Swagat as the guest of Mr Rodney Gilfry and his delightful daughter Carin.  The apartment that was set in June for Carin's life as a Juilliard Student has fallen through, so tomorrow I will spend the day running around the Upper West Side with Rod on an apartment search.  Should be fun.  And frustrating.

DR Jose, we tried their desserts: Rod had the Indian rice pudding which I thought tasted watery, Carin had mango ice cream, and I had saffron ice cream.  Both flavors were quite wonderful, but I haven't figured out yet what the stringy goop over the ice cream could be: spun sugar? ginger? noodles?

Busy relaxing.  I must say, I am really glad I've not got sucked into network television in years.  I watched a bit of something called Big Brother 8 (I presume there were seven others) and if that's what the world has devolved to count me out of network TV).  I then watched the first ten minutes of something called Cold Case.  "Hip" direction (well, hip two years ago - it does take TV a while to catch up to movie "hip") that is just stupid and never serves the story, a most unappealing cast of regulars, none of whom I've ever heard of, and a completely idiotic story.  And this is what a hit network show is?  Count me out.

Edi, I know you've been moving--and culling--over the past several weeks, but I didn't realize that you're now in your NEW HOUSE!!
CONGRATS and I hope you really love it!

Well, we're not quite in yet but we did get our first piece of mail! I hired "The Truck and I"
to move the big pieces of furniture on the 8th, so that will be our official moving day and our first night in the house!

Friends are coming over with dinner that night so that should be fun, too.

Good Evening!

Well, here' the short version...

-D Train to Rockefeller Center.
-Bought a nice umbrella at the Tumi Store - I've just always wanted a Tumi umbrella.  -Happy Birthday, To Me!
-6 Train to Brooklyn Bridge.
-Walked across the Brooklyn Bridge.
-Walked around the Court House area and part of Red Hook (I think)
-Eventually found my way over to Junior's - the original location.
-Had dinner at Junior's - salad and Hungarian Goulash.  Very good.  Alas, no room for the the famous cheesecake.  -And I didn't even eat all of my noodles that came with the Goulash.
-Walked back to Manhattan, but this time across the Manhattan Bridge.
-Walked through Chinatown, Little Italy, Soho, The Village and Chelsea.
-Stopped a Pinkberry for some of their frozen yogurt topped with mochi.
-Grabbed the A Train up at 23rd Street.  Transferred over to the D (express) at Columbus Circle.
-And now I'm home...

...And will probably head out for a bit.  Again.  "She" is home with her boyfriend, and I gave her a big "hint" about the stuff she left in the fridge the past two weeks - which I finally ditched and cleaned this afternoon - and also asked her if she still needed the cookie sheet.  -The one she left out two weeks ago (which she used to make the stuff I threw out earlier).  Ah, the joys of passive-agressiveness.  Or whatever this bit of childishness is supposed to be called.  ;)

In any case...

All in all, a wonderful day, and as DR Noel mentioned, the weather was actually pretty decent.  Temps just hovering around 80, partly cloudy skies, lower humidity.  Made for perfect picture taking conditions - and, yes, I took a bunch of pictures.  -Which I will post once I get them downloaded from my camera and formatted.

DR elmore - The ice cream topping was most likely faloodeh or falooda which is made with broken pieces of vermicelli.  There's an Indian pudding that's made with bits of noodles instead of rice, payasam, and sometimes it becomes a sauce.

So...  Here's the latest "entertaining" exchange...

"So, Megan's subletter is coming in this weekend, and we'd like to clear out the rest of the stuff up in the hallway so that she has room for her stuff."
-Oh, OK.  I'm working every night this week, so I'm not sure I can get all my stuff out of there.
"Well, I'm just gonna take some of my stuff down to the Salvation Army each morning.  If you'd like, we could just split a cab if you want to bring all of it down at once."
-Well, I'm working each night this week, so I really won't be able to bring it down.
"Well, we'd really like to clear out that stuff for the new subletter."
-Well, don't stress about it.  I'm leaving Friday for my friend's wedding, I can just put my stuff in my room in the meantime.
"Oh... OK."

So...  She can't get her ass out of bed just 30 minutes earlier and take her stuff down to the Salvation Army on the way to work?  The Salvation Army closes at 7:30, and she starts her dinner shift at work at 5:00, so... ???

Needless to say, we were all stunned, for lack of a better word, at her response - or lack thereof.  However, we all sensed that she was feeling a bit cornered since she seemed to be trying to get back upstairs (to her boyfriend) really fast.

And, of course, the cookie sheet is still sitting in the dish rack.

I also watched the original 73 (unaired) pilot episode which featured a couple of storylines that were dropped from the show before it aired.

Well.. All three of us were asking her about the stuff in the hallway, and another roommate's father is here tonight too!  If Megan's father was not here, we were most likely going to get into confrontational mode.  In the meantime....

Are these the people who keep trashing Bernadette Peters' voice and saying the one doing the singing on the youtube video does it so much better? How terrible to trash someone to try to make someone else look good.

I enjoyed them - although I prefer Bernadette's version of Last Midnight.

Quite a few episodes of COLD CASE have brought me to tears at the end. This and WITHOUT A TRACE are the only dramatic series I've seen for more than one episode so I don't have much basis for comparison, but I like the show and the main actress.

You tube can provide you with some interesting finds.

Into the Woods

Two songs that were cut/modified for the Broadway version. It was the San Diego Globe production. Some different cast people. Ellen Folley playing the witch. From the clip I think bernadette Peters was better.

Also I found several numbers from the Original London cast. Different concept. Costume and sets.

The title of my next musical: Buttfluffsical ! (of course, it would be for the Fringe Festival and DR ELmo would think it's crap...)

I am firmly staying away from anything made in China!

Unfortunately the distributors of food stuffs in the US are not required to label the country of origin of their ingredients - so you get "China" without knowing!

Unless of course you get sick and/or die from the poison they seem to put in everything from food to toys over there .... then you'll find out about it on the news (albeit a bit late ...) ...

Jrand, Richard is just starting to go through e-mails and assigning things.  I was the first person he contacted about five weeks ago and he had two specific films he said he'd like me to do, since he knew I was a huge fan.

Ah................thanks for the update.  ;D

Perhaps all is NOT lost on the DVD REVIEWING front.

Well, after the "hints" and comments I dropped tonight, I can think of one person who does not think of me favorably right now.
Don't give her a frog.

...but I haven't figured out yet what the stringy goop over the ice cream could be: spun sugar? ginger? noodles?

A chef with a head cold - nah, forget it.
