Well, you've read the notes, the notes had the sound of one hand clapping, and now it is time for you to post until the cows come home - they have the sound of one udder clapping, which, of course, is udder nonsense.  We don't allow groaning here at haineshisway.com

DR George "Priscilla" did quite well in Sydney and is now playing here in Melbourne.  Two of OZ Derek's friends report back "don't bother"  and I thought they were more likely to enjoy that would I.  IMHO - another unnecessary musical! Songs from the movie used of course. There was a give away of CD tracks (a sampler I guess ) in the Sunday paper last week.

Hmmm...maybe I should just tell them to cancel the order and I could reorder "Only Heaven Knows" on its own. :-\

The discussion on the radio this morning is the increase of heating costs this winter around the country.  From what I have heard, the projection is between 4% and 16% depending on the source of your heat.  The biggest increase is in propane costs.  Do very many people actually heat their homes with propane?

Good morning, all! The post office, the bank, Toyland, and a summit meeting are all parts of my agenda today before 1 pm.  Oy!  After that, life's a pice of cake. I hope.

Yesterday I ordered my tickets for YANK, a musical from the 2005 NYMF being done in Brooklyn by the Gallery Pllayers.  Chris Carfizzi, who auditioned for "The Brain" and Chad, our Private Partz, are both in the show.

DR RonPulliam, since HANGOVER SQUARE is one of the chief influences on SWEENEY TODD and Sondheim's spoken several times about the Herrmann influence on the score, I can't believe it's taken so long for a DVD release.  At a party in 1981, Steve told me that Anthony Perkins and I were the only two people he knew who had ever seen HANGOVER SQUARE.

DR Slingshot, I too thought the florist was funnier than Zubrick's new job as a lifeguard, and I missed the funny mustache that the florist wore in LA.

I was really happy with who left last night. HE was clearly the worst.  I am a little surprised since i feel like people like him (wayne newton) and marie osmond are popular yet not as good as some of the others. I bet she'll be around for a while.

I feel bad for the boxer floyd being in the bottom 2. He has a lot of potential.  I guess he doesn't have long. Same with mark cuban.

I think all the woman are popular. So it will be interesting to see who goes first. I would have thought the Spice Girl would go first.

My favorite is definitely helio and julianne.

I got to see tonight's PUSHING DAISIES last night (it airs a night ahead here) (NO SPOILERS).

I liked it.  ANd i even liked Kristin Chenoweth more this week.

Does anyone know how old her character is supposed to be.

If the lead guy is late 20s. And kristin's character has a crush on him. Then is she supposed to be the same age?  That was actually one of the things that seemed off to me last week. I thought that the 2 leads were supposed to be early 20s. and Kristin to me looks mid 30s or more.

Here's an amusing vignette from Peter Filichia's column today:

Quote
Harnick was walking by a record store and saw in the window an LP of The Body Beautiful. “It even had our poster on the cover,” he says, still sounding astonished, “so I went in and found that it was an illegal recording made through the theater’s sound system. I called Tommy Valando, our publisher, and told them that he had to blow the whistle on this and stop the sales - tomorrow, after I'd bought six copies for myself.”

In the flash forwards at the end, Zubrick comes out with a bottle of suntan lotion and squeezes out an overly-healthy amount, asking who needs some lubing (or some such phrase).

I know the Laurel and Hardy MARCH OF THE WOODEN SOLDIERS/BABES IN TOYLAND is very different from the original. I've been toying (no pun intended) with buying this since I don't have the other two films either. I guess I'll wait to see some reviews on it.

One of my "virtual sister" stories:
I have a friend who lives in Canada who I used to travel with often. EVERYONE would look at us, pause for a second, then say, "Ah! You're sisters!" EVERYONE! When we'd try to explain that we're just friends, they wouldn't believe us! We HAD to be relations. Do we look alike? No, but we had somewhat similar haircuts and both wear glasses. It was hysterical.

Thanks for this reminder, Larry.  I'd read that, of course.  It certainly isn't like "Hangover Square" has been "available" much.  I never saw any listings for it back in the day when AMC aired Fox product.  And no one ever mentions it on the film score monthly messageboard in any way other than as a score written by Herrmann.

I daresay the preponderance of Herrmann fans have never seen the film.

Remodeling home stretch vibes appreciated--the floor guy should finish sealing the floors today (a bit smelly, but at least quieter than the sanding phase, which was G-dawful).  He's using a supposedly environmentally friendly water-based sealant, which makes me wonder what the non-environmentally friendly stuff smells like.  Then tomorrow they move in our new appliances, which have been residing in our garage for the past 2 months.  Friday morning the countertop people arrive to install the new countertops, then in the afternoon, the finish electrical and plumbing stuff gets done.  All that will be left is one final coat on the floors (probably next Monday).  Oh and paying the final bill of course, which merits a special Oy in and of itself.   It has been a long, slow slog.

What magazines (if any) do you subscribe to at home?

I used to be quite a magazine subsciber in those days when you'd get those publisher's clearing house deals (in the late 70s) - I took Time, Newsweek, New York, and several others.  Haven't subscribed to anything in years, although for reasons unknown to me, the Hollywood Reporter started arriving in the Kritzerland mailbox about four months ago and it comes daily.  I don't read it.
Title: Re:ONE HAND CLAPPING
Post by: DERBRUCER on October 10, 2007, 08:37:58 AM
I find the on-line political quiz games (matching your views with candidates very frustrating) - I posted the following on another chat board that was beating the quiz to death:

I have problems giving YES/NO answers to ill-defined questions.

"Do you favor or oppose the concept of universal health care in America?"
 
Well, I favor the concept of every US resident having reasonable access to vital health care - but the devil is in the details (what is "reasonable", what is "vital").
 
I do not, however, favor a tax-payer funded system of "Universal Healthcare (i.e. a single-pay Canadian system).

So, how do I answer? I chose to put my emphasis on "concept", and answered "yes", which threw my profile far to the left. I could have chosen to read "tax-payer" funded into "universal" and answered "No", which would have thrown my profile to the right.

Answers to other issues can also be misread - I fully support the state's right to "take a life for a life, but feel that as practiced in our country capital punishment is not a deterrent to crime, the administration of the process of prosecuting capital crimes is flawed, and the added expense of such prosecutions is a waste of tax payer dollars. So do I "support capital punishment" - a big YES in theory, a definite NO in practice.

I do feel a pregnant women has no "right" to have an abortion, at tax-payer expense, but feel it is good public policy to provide same.

How do I 'lean" on the 2008 Presidential Race? Well presented with Clinton vs Keyes or Richardson vs Brownback, The Democrat gets my vote. Presented with Clinton vs Giuliani or Edwards vs Mc Cain, the Republican gets my vote. Other match-ups still have me pondering the problem of "lesser evils". Presented with a third party challenger with little chance of success, I will vote for one of the principals, presented with Bloomberg and a fair shot of derailing a Kerry vs Romney candidacy, the Independent gets my vote.

Black and white questions do not work well in a grey world.

But, the game is entertaining, so I play.

der Brucer

NOTE: I am not inviting debate on my positions, merely pointing out the problem of evaluating the results of Yes/No type quizs.

White House: Genocide resolution could hurt relations with key ally

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The Bush administration Wednesday lobbied heavily against a House resolution that labels the killings of Armenians in Turkey during World War I as "genocide," saying it would hurt relations with a key U.S. ally.

The nonbinding proposal, which is to be considered by the House Foreign Affairs Committee, acknowledges the "genocide" of Armenians in the early 20th century during the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, which preceded the creation of modern Turkey in 1923.

"In the case that Armenian allegations are accepted, there will be serious problems in the relations between the two countries," said President Abdullah Gul in a letter to President Bush, who staunchly opposes the resolution.

Nabi Sensoy, Turkey's ambassador to the United States, told CNN the resolution's passage would be a "very injurious move to the psyche of the Turkish people."
He predicted a "backlash" in the country, saying there will be setbacks on several fronts: Turkish-American relations, Turkish-Armenian relations and the normalization of relations between the nations of Turkey and Armenia.

Defense Secretary Robert Gates said good relations with Turkey are vital because 70 percent of the air cargo intended for and 30 percent of the fuel consumed by the U.S. forces in Iraq flies through Turkey.

U.S. commanders, Gates said, "believe clearly that access to airfields and roads and so on in Turkey would very much be put at risk if this resolution passes and the Turks react as strongly as we believe they will."

"Our heavy dependence on the Turks for access is really the reason the commanders raised this and why we're so concerned about the resolution," Gates said.

The LA denizens might remember:

Quote
1972 – A Bloody Day in Santa Barbara

On a sunny Santa Barbara day on January 27, 1972, 34 years ago, Gourgen Yanikian, a U.S. citizen of Armenian origin, murdered in cold blood the Los Angeles Turkish Consul General, Mehmet Baydar, and his Vice Consul, Bahadir Demir.  He invited the two diplomats to his hotel master suite to “gift an antique carpet to the Turkish Ministry of Culture as a symbol of his appreciation of Turkey.”  Baydar and Demir, having grown up with Turkish Armenians, and who often gathered with local Armenians in Los Angeles, had no reason to believe that the meeting would be nothing but a pleasant social event.  After seating his guests in the living room and exchanging niceties over cups of tea, Yanikian went to his bedroom to bring “the carpet”, but instead came out with a loaded weapon.  Yanikian proceeded to massacre the diplomats execution style.  Afterwards, Yanikian cleaned himself up, went down to the reception desk, and turned himself in to the authorities.  He was tried in the Superior Court of the State of California for the County of Santa Barbara, convicted of first-degree murder, and sentenced to life imprisonment.

Today at the Meijer store while I was buying my hot dogs, there was a man in front of me who was about 80 years old....and he was buying a 26" HDTV which they were helping him with.

I HOPE HE HAS SOMEONE TO HELP HIM HOOK IT UP.....I almost volunteered to follow him home....but instead I am just sending him vibes.

Did you ever get your high def TV hooked up to receive "HD" broadcasts?

My question for ASK BK day - to start with:

Don't know if they're quite considered pulp, but I'd adapt any Cornell Woolrich - especially Night Has A Thousand Eyes and The Black Curtain, both of which had botched films made from them.

Hello.  I ended up calling in sick again today even though I had originally planned to  go to work today. I got up at 6:30 and got dressed, drove the Vixter to school (all of 2 blocks away but it is across a  very busy road which I don't want her crossing especially when it is still dark out these days)   I came back home and was absolutley exhausted by these limited activiities.  So I went back to bed reset the alarm for 8a;30. called the boss. called the offoce and then went back to sleep  and slept until after 1.

I thought about DR Elmore this morning when I read that MGM is coming out with a holiday DVD box next week that contains MARCH OF THE WOODEN SOLDIERS (allegedly remastered) along with THE BISHOP'S WIFE and POCKETFUL OF MIRACLES.

I know the Laurel and Hardy MARCH OF THE WOODEN SOLDIERS/BABES IN TOYLAND is very different from the original. I've been toying (no pun intended) with buying this since I don't have the other two films either. I guess I'll wait to see some reviews on it.

The Laurel & Hardy version was my first trip to Toyland, and, much as it strays from the intent and purpose of the original show, I thnk it's dark and spooky - which is good - and a million times better than any future remake and that's fantastic!

Back from a good luncheon meeting, and I'm carting around a forthcoming 700 page bio of Victor Herbert to read and provide a blurb in the next few days.

They complained that HD didn't look even as good as standard def used to look on their old set, and I saw that they weren't watching hi def channels.

If you have a non HD TV can you watch  HD DVDs on it?

Yes to both questions.

1. DVDs being a digital medium have the potential to look very good on HDTVs, and with the right players and a good DVD transfer can look close to HD in quality. VHS tapes can be viewed, of course, but they are so low in resolution that they're never going to look as sharp and clear as a DVD.

As for HD-DVDs (and Blu-ray discs) on non-HD sets, the players have the capability to downconvert the 1080p images via any of the video outputs (composite, S-video, component, HDMI) to 480i which analog TVs can read. (Though why anyone would ever want to do this, I can't imagine.)

Actually the three next Bollywood movies playing at the Valley Theater up in Beaverton all look good. I plan on seeing at least one or two of them, and my buddy Jim may join me...of course he has now clue what he is in for. But he likes fried pakoras, and they serve them fresh in the lobby at intermission so he will be happy.

Yes to both questions.

1. DVDs being a digital medium have the potential to look very good on HDTVs, and with the right players and a good DVD transfer can look close to HD in quality. VHS tapes can be viewed, of course, but they are so low in resolution that they're never going to look as sharp and clear as a DVD.

As for HD-DVDs (and Blu-ray discs) on non-HD sets, the players have the capability to downconvert the 1080p images via any of the video outputs (composite, S-video, component, HDMI) to 480i which analog TVs can read. (Though why anyone would ever want to do this, I can't imagine.)

Thanks - wel,l I was wondering as we do not presently have an HDTV but presumably will have to get one sometime in the future when our present TV finally bites the dust,  whether all the DVDs we own now would be rendered useless.... also I was wondering if they start only putting out new DVDs inthe HD format (as I assume they will start to do at some point, just as VHS seems to have disappeared from the new reelases) if I will still be able to watch them on my current TV

From last night:

DR Singaling, the cats still haven't been introduced to the porch yet. We have to install a doorknob that latches so they won't be able to push open the door and get out. Greg has been working non-stop since we got back, and I am clueless in matters of carpentry.

They did the CAT scan today. I hadn't been eating or drinking very much since Saturday so to have to drink all that barium and then more after I got there, well, not enjoyable.

And they did another test at the same time which involved injecting iodine into my vein (this time the tech did better.) They said they'd call with results in the next few days. I was exhausted and came home and took a nap, and now I'm back editing again.

Remodeling home stretch vibes appreciated--the floor guy should finish sealing the floors today (a bit smelly, but at least quieter than the sanding phase, which was G-dawful).  He's using a supposedly environmentally friendly water-based sealant, which makes me wonder what the non-environmentally friendly stuff smells like.  

It is horrendous and you have to move out of the house while they are doing it.

Congrats on approaching the final stretch :)

Since I have to be at work very early tomorrow (six in the morning counts as such), I've already put dinner in the oven.  

Boneless pork ribs and sauerkraut, to which I've added sliced apple and a couple of sweet peppers from the bunch I picked up at Tuesday's farmer's market.  Topped the whole mess with lots of caraway seeds and fresh black pepper, wrapped foil over the cooking vessel, and slid it all into a 300 degree oven where it will stay for a couple of hours.  (For der B and myself, this counts as dining early).

To be accompanied by mashed potatoes with mushroom gravy.

So... While walking up from Ripley-Grier though Times Square on my way up to Columbus Circle, I noticed a couple of "interesting" things.  There were cops standing in front of almost every theatre.  And on 45th Street where there are currently three or four shows loading in right now, both sides of the streets had a pretty visible police presence.  And as I watched some people coming out of various stage doors, they all seemed to be carrying big bags filled with personal items and/or their instruments.  Hmm.... :-\

*And I noticed last week that all the Judy Kuhn "section" was empty, sold out, but this afternoon I did see that it was thoroughly restocked with both her Jule Styne album and her new one, "Serious Playground".

I was really happy with who left last night. HE was clearly the worst.  I am a little surprised since i feel like people like him (wayne newton) and marie osmond are popular yet not as good as some of the others. I bet she'll be around for a while.

I feel bad for the boxer floyd being in the bottom 2. He has a lot of potential.  I guess he doesn't have long. Same with mark cuban.

I think all the woman are popular. So it will be interesting to see who goes first. I would have thought the Spice Girl would go first.

My favorite is definitely helio and julianne.

OMG, circle this day on the calendar. We agree, DR Jennifer.  ;D  Except, I don't geel sorry for the boxer. He is trying, but he really isn't a very good dancer

Question for one and all DRs....

One of my students was working on a speech for speech on people who lived in the 1980s and she was curious about the music and lingo. She worked really hard on her speech and delivered it this afternoon to a  warm reception by her audience. She even looked up some of hte phrases from the early 80s that came from Valey Girl and died of laughter when I did "Its like so bitchen!"

That got us into a discussion about  music and she could see why her mother liked certain things.

When you were a teen or young adult what popular songs did you enjoy?

I do feel a pregnant women has no "right" to have an abortion, at tax-payer expense, but feel it is good public policy to provide same.

How do I 'lean" on the 2008 Presidential Race? Well presented with Clinton vs Keyes or Richardson vs Brownback, The Democrat gets my vote. Presented with Clinton vs Giuliani or Edwards vs Mc Cain, the Republican gets my vote. Other match-ups still have me pondering the problem of "lesser evils". Presented with a third party challenger with little chance of success, I will vote for one of the principals, presented with Bloomberg and a fair shot of derailing a Kerry vs Romney candidacy, the Independent gets my vote.

Black and white questions do not work well in a grey world.

But, the game is entertaining, so I play.

NOTE: I am not inviting debate on my positions, merely pointing out the problem of evaluating the results of Yes/No type quizs.


That is why it was presented as nothing more than a game.  They clearly stated that taking the test would not detemine who you voted for in the actual election.

Jeanne, are you feeling better?
Yes, thanks. I was REALLY tired today, but at least didn't feel ill. In case you're interested, I'm using Natrum Muriaticum (a homeopathic remedy, for those unfamiliar with it) for my head congestion. It's WONDERFUL for migraines and is THE headache remedy in general. But congestion? Something's working.

Whatever this bug is it's REALLY tenacious.

BTW, I intended to reply to your second email, but just haven't been up to it. Will try to do so when I'm a bit stronger.

Heart of Glass -- Blondie
Rock this town -- Straycats
Jump Jive Wail - Cherry Poppin Daddies

I finished BABES IN ARMS and saw for the first time the "My Day" sequence in the finale which I had only previously seen stills of. The sequence is in very rough shapes with scratches and debris galore (and blown up from a 16mm print), but it's there and now restored to the film.
Title: Re:ONE HAND CLAPPING
Post by: Matt H. on October 10, 2007, 08:18:27 PM
Next I watched THE HOAX. Very intriguing to see how Clifford Irving almost pulled off the Howard Hughes bio hoax. Nice performances from a really first rate cast - Richard Gere, Alfred Molina, Marcia Gay Harden, Stanley Tucci, Zeljko Ivanek and an excellent production. A little artsy in some parts (counter to the structure of the rest of the piece), but it was the right length so it didn't wear out its welcome.

The DVD transfer is bothersome, however. Only average sharpness, contrast bumped up too much so they could match vintage footage, so the color looked plugged up.

Haven't explored the bonus features yet. Will do them tomorrow.

PUSHING DAISIES. Well, again a pleasant hour, but it's not grabbing me.

I don't like the character Chuck very much. I don't like the constant Jim Dale narration. Just too precious and I get tired of it before the end of the show.

I did like Kristin's song. She handled the transitions between chest and head voice beautifully.

Post by: Matt H. on October 10, 2007, 08:24:42 PM
This was the best PRIVATE PRACTICE episode I've seen. I found all of the cases interesting. I just wish the doctors/cast weren't all so damaged. Other than Taye Diggs (and the receptionist), not one of these people is on firm emotional ground, and this constant regret over lost love or lack of love is going to run pretty thin if that's going to be the focus of every single episode.

DIRTY SEXY MONEY had an OK episode, too. Again, I think for the show to continue to get my attention, we're going to need to see some more colors to their emotional make-ups. We're only three episodes into the season, and already I'm getting tired of the repetition of their one-note personalities week after week.

I did see the eppie last week and I felt that some of the characters seemed a bit flat with very little done to develop differents facets of their personalities .. I agree that they do need some 'color' in the sense of stronger personalities.

I began with Monday night's CSI: MIAMI. The jury is still out about my continuing with the show. The character I want to rejoin the staff is still being kept at arm's length (absurdly).

So, I guess I'm not the only one with the hots for  who appreciates the acting skills of Jonathan Togo.

Earlier this evening, I watched "Journeyman".  Really fine episode, IMO, but I'm wondering if it's placement right after "Heroes" (another Sci-fantasy) does it any favors.  It's a wholly different kind of show and "Heroes" takes the viewer down a somewhat breathless path while "Journeyman" is a but more understated and deliberately paced.
