Well, you've read the notes, the notes were suprisingly even-keeled given the number of blown gaskets that were in evidence, and now it is time for you to post until the cows come home - they're currently blowing some gaskets, just for the hell of it.

I loved all the TV I watched tonight.

That includes "Ugly Betty" and "Grey's Anatomy."  I thoroughly concur with DR MattH's assessment that this was the best episode in a LONG time.  It was full of pith and promise and potential.  I especially loved George's wife, getting the fuzzy end of the lollipop from a thoroughly misguided chief of surgery, begging George NOT to say what she knows he's going to say.   And then George agrees not to say it.  And probably no one in America/Canada or anywhere else, for that matter, watching this episode wanted him to say it.

That said, I'm still so thoroughly OVER Meredith Grey and her self-serving pity parties.  She makes it seem so plausible that she has no "link" to Lexi because her father deserted her.  But it was NEVER about her....it was her ball-busting mother, her weak father and life, in general, that deprived her of her father.  It was not Lexi...it was never Lexi....and Meredith is going to have to get over her bitchy selfishness and consider the fact that she has a blood relative who wanted to connect with her.  I despise the character.

I was very disappointed in McDreamy breaking down and keeping his appointment with Meredith.

I LOVED Christina's "wedding present trade-offs-for-favors" tactic.  

i DO wish she would have told Burke's mother EXACTLY what her son could do with himself.

I have no writing work at the moment so I may begin work on the piec I want to write in my dad's memory.

I don't know if it was the LAW & ORDER: CI episode with the actor I once knew but I had very strange dreams: a rehearsal of CANDIDE and a strange situation involving an orchestration of a Leonard Bernsten piece, back to work at The Drama Book Shop and dealing with a huge pile of shipping problems andf orders that had piled up since I'd been away.

It will take some getting used to-Blanche starts off so High(note-wise) and forceful, I wonder where she'll go when she actually does go crazy;Also it's live, so the occasional bursts of applause make suspension of disbelief more difficult.  One of the things I liked about Blitzstein's REGINA, with the '58 NYCity Opera Cast, is that you can understand every phrase-maybe 'cause it's closer to the musical theater I'm more familiar with.

vixmom, just to reiterate, even the cast has been unable to get extra tix for this weekend, and those two perfs have been sold out for  a long time  - we can get him in to either of this aftrenoon's performances, though, if he can rearrange his schedule.  But of course, like any theater enterprise, there's an allotment that is held back for emergencies which may be released by NYMF from time to time if you keep checking online.  We have no advance knowledge of when these will be released, though.

I read the booklet in the Mickey-Judy box before going to sleep last night. Always enjoy John Fricke's take on all things Judy Garland.

My only disappointment is that he didn't do a running commentary for all four films, but especially for BABES ON BROADWAY. Stil I'l enjoy the two that he DID do.

Another thing I did last night before prime time started that I failed to mention is try out my laserdisc player on the new TV. I had plugged it in from the beginning but in being so busy watching DVDs and calibrating the inputs that I use most frequently (cable box, over the air digital tuner, DVD player, and Blu-ray player), I hadn't done anything to the S-video calibration for the laserdisc. I put in A VERY BRADY SEQUEL, one of the more recent and colorful laserdiscs, so I could guage flesh tones and sharpness. I'll have to try out a few Technicolor laserdiscs next to see how I did with a quick, crude calibration.

And the word of the day is: MOLIMINOUS!
I've always found Mr. Toad's Wild Ride at Disneyland to be light and carefree fun, and hardly MOLIMINOUS at all.  But I've always wished that Mole and Rat could have their own ride, as well, since I like those two a lot.

I also think it says something of our cultural biases, that we don't have the word RATIMINOUS in our language.  A shame, really.

TOD: Since we hardly ever watch TV, the only thing we've managed to sit down and watch is a movie my DH plucked off the shelf last night and said "I see something I want to watch".

It was THE LAST STARFIGHTER. It was fun to see it again after seeing Fred & Skip's show, and we both agreed that we liked the changes they made (Centauri as co-pilot, etc.).

Tonight I'm going to a documentary about Pearl, a topiary gardener that we did a show about many years ago. Our gardening crew is all going together; it will be fun to see everybody!

I have to say that I am really disappointed by the way this guy shoots interviews. He frames a wide shot and then never changes the angle again. Jeez---I could do that!

The thing is, maybe they decided to stay wider on her since she's rather old and they thought it would be more flattering, but they could have at least gone a little tighter, above the elbows, so you don't see the effect of gravity, if you know what I mean...

DVD - The Ultimate Sci Fi Collection Volume 2, discussed here a few weeks ago.  Nothing really exciting, but some okay stuff.  DR CYCLOPS looked very good Technicolor-wise.  LAND UNKNOWN was pretty boring.  THE DEADLY MANTIS had lots of stock footage, but a pretty neat looking monster.  CULT OF THE COBRA was talky and set bound....and the sets weren't so hot....New York apartments, bowling alleys, and theatres, designed by someone who had obviously never been in a New York apartment, bowling alley, or theatre.


Well...you do get William Reynolds in two of those movies! Makes the set totally worthwhile (at least for me!).

Edisaurus, we did sell the Brain CD - it was in the lounge on the floor below the theater - of course, it would have been nice if there'd been a sign in the lobby OF the theater, but, you know, it's NYMF.  We sold four copies, but I've been getting orders from people who saw the show, includind one from a Japanese fellow who saw the show (and about seven other NYMF shows) - the Brain was his favorite and he wrote the sweetest note - doesn't speak English well, so maybe that's why we were his favorite.

CORRECTION:  That does not cost several hundred dollars on ebay.

When you're next in town, hit Academy on West 18th Street and see if they have a used copy of the Mauceri-Scottish Opera recording.  I can't believe it's out of print but it is.

Congrats on your new purchase!  Did you get one of the new-new ones?  I think they're silver now.

As for soap opera time, my "favorite" is how kids go from birth to five years old... then to the 'tweens... although, sometimes they just skip their adolescence, and go right to being freshman in college... especially if they were sent off to boarding school (for a year)... And the boys always seem to come back from boarding school as hunky young men.

Where's Rodzinski?  Doesn't he love us any more?


Where's Dan (the Man)?  Does anyone privately correspond with him who can let us know anything?

And where is TPunk/Antonia?  Miss her, I do.

Odin, a 2-year-old rescued sea lion who is 90 percent blind, swims with another sea lion, 5-year-old Miller, left, after Odin was released to his new home at the Seal and Sea Lion Habitat at the Aquarium of the Pacific. Because Odin is blind and unable to hunt for food, he cannot be returned to the wild. Visitors can now see Odin at the aquarium.

And has anyone else been following the reasons behind the delay of the premiere of the movie version of "The Kite Runner"?  Truly intriguing.

I found THIS (http://www.comcast.net/entertainment/index.jsp?fn=2007/10/04/233438.html) article and one reason for the delay:

"I'm worried people from my tribe will turn against me, even cut my throat and kill me," Ahmad Jaan Mahmoodzada, the father of the movie's star, told the BBC. (The Mahmoodzadas say Ahmad Khan didn't know about the rape scene until the day of shooting.)

Such violence would not be unprecedented. Demonstrations broke out after the film Kabul Express became available on DVD. The Indian movie apparently has a character hurl epithets at a Hazara. The government condemned the offense, but death threats led the actor whose character made the insulting comments to flee the country.

Paramount Vantage ruled out cutting the certain-to-be controversial rape scene, but the studio did decide to postpone The Kite Runner's release, which was originally scheduled for Nov. 2, to give the company time to get the child stars and their families out of Afghanistan.

Rodzinski is back at his old sports writing job, but he is still still doing the Leading Men column for Playbill. He has his hands full. So to speak.

I do not know the reason for his vanishing from our world, however.

Ball of fire still a mystery
Officials say reported flaming object most likely a meteor
By Dolly A. Butz
Journal staff writer

Officials may never know if the flaming object shooting through the sky Wednesday afternoon was in fact a meteor.

"We can't confirm at all what it is," said Todd Heitkamp, warning and coordination meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Sioux Falls. "There's suspicion that it was a meteorite, but we have no confirmation whatsoever."

Heitkamp said no one was monitoring meteorite activity over Sioux City at the time the ball of fire was spotted.

Around 2 p.m. Wednesday the Woodbury County Communications Center received reports of something falling from the sky. Communications center director Glenn Sedivy said callers talked about a "fire ball," but they were not able to give a good description of its location. The calls were forwarded to emergency responders.

Sioux City Police Lt. Marti Reilly said he heard sightings of something coming out of the sky east of Merrill. Officers weren't dispatched because police could not confirm the flaming object landed in Sioux City, he said.

Authorities at the Plymouth County Sheriff's Office said a caller south of Hinton told dispatchers they thought they saw something fall from the sky by Hinton. A motorist traveling on Highway 75 also reported seeing a flaming object in the sky a mile west and a mile north of Merrill.

Gary Junge, emergency management coordinator for Plymouth County, said he heard of reports of meteor sightings from Sergeant Bluff to Sioux County.

Heitkamp said meteor sightings are not uncommon.

"We have meteorites that hit the atmosphere all the time," he said. "This one here, if it was a meteorite, just happened to be large enough to reach further into the atmosphere than what most of them do before burning up."

Meteoroids are tiny particles about the size of a grain of sand. They are usually residue from comets. If a meteoroid encounters the Earth's upper atmosphere, it vaporizes in an event called a meteor. If the object survives and hits the ground, it is referred to as a meteorite.

Yes, although it actually ran from 1955 to 1960...many of my interviewees have appeared on it...as has Ms. Allison Hayes in the DR. ALAN MARCH episode.

I believe I visited the set once. I do clearly recall that Mr Millionaire gave out what looked like checks,but said "One million dollars worth of good luck" with his autograph on them. I had one, but you know, all those anti-clutter folks tell you to toss what you don't need, and unfortunately it was tossed long ago.

You see, YOU SHOULD NEVER THROW OUT ANYTHING THAT CAN BE SOLD ON EBAY!

Count td and me in those listeners!

I think if it is Darin you may well find WFO listening as well.

Me, too. I adore Sammy Davis, Jr, always have done. I listened to Bobby Darin some time back after not having heard him in many years and was pleasantly surprised that he held up so well. That is NOT true for all singers I've heard.

Odin, a 2-year-old rescued sea lion who is 90 percent blind, swims with another sea lion, 5-year-old Miller, left, after Odin was released to his new home at the Seal and Sea Lion Habitat at the Aquarium of the Pacific. Because Odin is blind and unable to hunt for food, he cannot be returned to the wild. Visitors can now see Odin at the aquarium.

What made me think of this was the documentary movie the poster is promoting is called POSADA; and I just happen to be watching the Yankees playoff game.  And their catcher's name is...........



Oh never mind.  It is Jorge Posada.

Good Evening!

Well, I was able to make it to the 5:00 performance of The Last Starfighter earlier this afternoon, and it seemed like a bunch of other people were able to make to the 5:00 show too. :)

I always love it when I can actually see a show that I've worked on (I played a few rehearsals for TLS) from the audience as an audience member, and today was no exception.  Congrats to everyone involved.  *And I even got congratulate Toby and Dylan since they were outside with Skip when I left the theatre.

After TLS I headed on over to Pietrasanta with my friend, Mark, who had also seen the show tonight.  It was my first time back at Pietrasanta since the new owners had taken over.  The menu was the same - although newly typeset and printed.  The room had a fresh coat of paint - along with a few piece of blue painter's tape in some of the corners. ;)  And there was new fabric on the banquettes.  The food was good, but I could definitely tell things were different - and not necessarily for the better.  It just seemed a bit too busy, and louder(!) than it used to be.  -And I miss the tablecloths too.  And they also have the hostess outside on the sidewalk handing out menus and asking/begging people to come in.

*However, it also turned that a bunch of the NAMT (National Alliance for Musical Theatre) participants were dining there tonight too - they had come from their opening weekend reception.  The gang from Seaside Music Theatre was there, along with Mr. Stephen Schwartz.

DR Jane - I've been the trailer for "The Kite Runner" over the past couple of weeks when I've gone to the movies.  However, the last time I saw the trailer, I did notice that the release date was no longer being announced at the end of the trailer.  Alas, now I know why.

Since I finished before 8 p.m., I was able to watch WHOST WHISPERER "live." Enjoyable enough, but I guessed pretty quickly what was really going on.

Kevin Kilner? Was he the girl's father? If it was, I thought he was wonderful (and a hunk).

I couldn't resist, so even with a DVR just stuffed full of TV programs, I HAD to watch BABES ON BROADWAY from the Mickey-Judy set. Knowing what I'm going to have coming in over the next few days to be viewed and written about, I thought this might be my last opportunity to watch one of the films in the set.

It looks just fine. Not perfect, mind you, but good. There were some speckles, and I didn't think sharpness was consistent throughout or that black levels were very strong until we got to the minstrel finale sequence.

And they've dialed the sound down quite a bit. I had to up the volume on the receiver to compensate. Be careful if you listen to Burton Lane singing "Chin Up, Cheerio, Carry On!" on the bonus features because it's loud and having the receiver turned up almost burst my eardrums. (He sings quite well, BTW.)

Too zoned to watch anything.  Tried watching Josh Logan's film of Tall Story, but kept falling asleep.  Then put on a couple of the Esther Williams movies from the recent box set but was appalled at how lackluster the transfers were, at least the two I sampled.  Want to see what Technicolor should look like from that period?  Put on Dr. Cyclops, which is gorgeous.
