bk - you and I seem to have had the same experiences with POLTERGEIST and TWILIGHT ZONE: THE MOVIE!  Although I don't have the dvds yet - tonight on my shopping trip - I've always seen the brilliance of the former and the could-have-been of the latter.
One of my craziest memories of TZ: THE MOVIE is cheering a little too loudly when I heard Jennifer Warnes' voice emanating from the jukebox at the start of the Vic Morrow segment, the title tune "Nights are Forever" is, I guess, a guilty pleasure for me.  It's one of those songs which isn't really memorable in the film itself, not available (I don't think) on any commercial cd, nor on any Warnes compilation - though it was available on vinyl - also as a twelve-inch remixed single.

Not a lot in my DVD player or CD player, I'm about to embark on technicals for HAMLET (I'm playing Claudius) and every spare moment is left for studying my lines.

DVD:  The Noel Coward Box.

Not a huge fan of either Poltergeist or THE TWOLIGHT ZONE movie.  This was the era of the franchised director/producer where everything in film for me began to pall.  Directors who wanted still wanted to be twelve year old boys remaking their favourite childhood memories.

The one thing about the Vic Morrow episode in TWILIGHT ZONE - THE MOVIE that I appreciated was that it was a (quasi) original tale. The other three segments were all based on episodes from the TV show, and my memories of the originals were too vivid for me to enjoy the (over-the-top) remakes. The Lithgow one was clearly the best of the three remade stories.

I never doubted for a second that Spielberg directed most if not all of POLTERGEIST.

I forgot to mention last night that I did have about 30 minutes before prime time began last night, and I put in the Judy Garland Songbook from the Mickey-Judy box set. Truly enjoyed seeing songs from her early MGM films. I skipped a couple so I could get to "A Pretty Girl Milking Her Cow" from LITTLE NELLIE KELLY. I love that movie and really want to see it on DVD. Thankfully, I do have it on laserdisc.

It's a cold, rainy day here in Oakland.

I guess F 52 isn't THAT cold, but it will be colder than that this evening.  Rain through tomorrow.  Clearing.  A bit warmer.  And then rain again on Tuesday.

This is our wettest October since I've lived in the Bay Area (from 1994).  Usually, rains don't begin until mid-November.  October is usually hot, hot, hot with no fog at all.

A little factoid I heard on TV news this a.m.:

There are (allegedly) more acorns -- and BIGGER ones, at that -- than most Bay Area residents have seen in decades.

The squirrels are in heaven and have been storing nuts  for more than a month...and yet the acorns continue to come.

That bit of trivia from the father of our Channel 2 weatherman Steve Paulsen, who added that this "sign", as it were, points to a cold, wet winter.

DR Jane:  To answer your query posed yesterday p.m., I was not affected by the traffic backup caused by the discovery of "body parts" on the interstate.

I consider myself extremely fortunate to be able to move about Oakland on side streets in less time than most folks' commutes via freeways.  I live 4 miles from my workplace, and a side-street commute takes about 10 minutes (through about 11 traffic lights and two school zones)

Absolutely. The show got so glum in the last third of last season that it was not an enjoyable viewing experience.

I think SHonda Rimes and her writers have listened to the complaints that were voiced long and loud and have lightened things up considerably.

Strangely, the show is not outrating CSI in overall viewers this year (though it is still handily winning the top show honors for ages 18-49).

You know, before Such Good Friends, wedding stuff consumed my day as well.  Most of 2003 was spent creating a musical that could be performed by Joy, me, some friends, my sister, our parents, and my four-year-old niece.  In some ways, it was the opposite of the NYMF experience: NYMF provides a theatre; we had the devil of a time trying to find one.  We found the Soho Playhouse, which has a center aisle, which was ideal for the entrance of the flower girl, the bride, and the surprise gospel choir.  The audience had a rollicking good time, which was our main goal.  We got written up in The Times, Dramaticsand yes, Peter Filichia in Theatermania raved:

http://www.theatermania.com/content/news.cfm/story/5220 (http://www.theatermania.com/content/news.cfm/story/5220)

So, four years ago today an audience loved another of my original musicals.  But I got a prize much greater, the hand of the fair Joy, the most loving and supportive wife a kid could ever wish for.  There’s no way I could have succeeded with Such Good Friends without her.

Good morning dear Esteemed, planned, screaming, and sinewy BK --  

It was an interesting coinky-dink that you watched Poltergeist and commented.  I popped into a Circuit City yesterday, and was thinking of buying the new DVD release of Poltergeist, but then didn't.  Now, I'm very disappointed that I passed on it.

I think it is absolutely a Spielberg film through and through, and what a wonderful dollop of extra "frosting" to have Zelda Rubenstein!

Respectfully, I think one of the important elements that has contributed to Mr. Spielberg's output of wonderful films is his ability to still connect with the 12 year old that he contains inside.

Child-like? -- to be cherished and never lost (IMHO) at the right moments.

Welcome to the world of Perspiration soda.

Wow ... my prayers have been answered!!! I never would have dreamed that my desire for a drink with a stinky football sock aftertaste would be fulfilled.

OK, so maybe Perspiration isn't the taste you are after. Maybe you're looking for something a little easier to the palette. You can choose one of the other new flavors that the company is offering up like, say ... Dirt, Sports Cream or Natural Field Turf. Hmm, not sure which one appeals to me more, the dirt or the sports cream. Decisions, decisions.

A perfect accompaniment to Alex Baldwins's Schweaty Balls.

DISMEMBERED BODY FOUND IN MEXICAN HORROR NOVELIST'S APARTMENT

MEXICO CITY —  An aspiring horror novelist was arrested after police discovered his girlfriend's torso in his closet, a leg in the refrigerator and bones in a cereal box, the city prosecutor's spokesman said Thursday.

Nearby they found the draft of a novel titled "Cannibalistic Instincts," said the official, who spoke on customary condition of anonymity.
Jose Luis Calva told police he had boiled some of his girlfriend's flesh but that he hadn't eaten it, the spokesman said.

MOM CHARGED WITH BUYING TEEN WEAPONS IN SCHOOL ATTACK PLOT

PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa. —  The mother of a 14-year-old who authorities say had a cache of guns, knives and explosive devices in his bedroom for a possible school attack was charged Friday with buying her son three weapons.

Michele Cossey, 46, bought her home-schooled son, Dillon, a .22-caliber handgun, a .22-caliber rifle and a 9 mm semiautomatic rifle, authorities said.

The teenager felt bullied and tried to recruit another boy for a possible attack at Plymouth Whitemarsh High School, authorities said. His mother was not accused of helping plot an attack, "but by virtue of her indulgence, she enabled him to get in this position," Montgomery County District Attorney Bruce L. Castor Jr. said.
"This is not the best parenting I've ever seen and she needs to be held accountable," Castor said.

And I can't imagine why the kid was bullied:

Is this the next cult sensation?

Teenage girls could make "Across the Universe" a hit of "High School Musical" proportions.

By Chris Lee, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer
October 12, 2007

"All You Need Is Love" may be an abiding principle in the gospel of the Beatles. But the Fab Four-inspired romantic musical "Across the Universe" -- in which winsome young actors and assorted rock stars sing 35 classic Beatles songs vividly re-imagined by acclaimed opera and theater director Julie Taymor -- needed a lot more than that after an uninspiring opening last month.

Then help arrived in the form of an audience whose parents were their age when the first wave of Beatlemania hit.
After three weeks in theaters, the PG-13 movie finally penetrated the top 10 by connecting with a zealous core constituency: teenage girls, who, anecdotal evidence suggests, are going to see the movie in packs, bonding with one another (and the film) through repeated viewings and popularizing it with their school chums via word-of-mouth.

From JeanneI haven't dared to watch them for fear of that happening.  Her last book turned me off & I don't know if I'll return to the series.

I've seen several of the Elizabeth George adaptations on PBS. The screenwriters/producers took great liberties: the two main characters look considerably different on the screen than in print. Full-length novels were reduced to 90 minutes and so cut up that, in each case, I had trouble following the story, despite having read--and remembered--the book. Ms George was clearly disturbed over her lack of control. Other fans of the books I've spoken to expressed their displeasure, as well. I have real difficulty understanding why PBS would do this, when most of both Mystery! and Masterpiece Theatre is so well done.

Oh, dear! *eyes watering.* I was never a horror movie fan, but I remember Richard dearly from Saturday nights at Eighty-Eights. I will always think of him blowing a train whistle and waving a candle (imitating a track worker) when we sang "On the Twentieth Century." (No, it's not a requirement that I mention Eighty-Eights every third post, but it sure seems that way, don't it?)

I began my afternoon of viewing by finishing the Judy Garland Songbook. It's a lovely idea and well executed. And watching those clips made me want to go back and watch every single movie of hers that I own. (In some cases, the released DVDs look far superior to the clips they used in the Songbook. I'm thinking particularly of THE HARVEY GIRLS and ZIEGFELD FOLLIES.)

Next, I watched the first three episodes of NCIS in the fourth season box set. I'm not a regular viewer of the show (I've maybe watched two episodes since it's been on), so I'm learning about the regular characters pretty much on-the-job.

The tone of this is the lightest of all the CBS crime procedurals. They joke and kid with each other a lot. None of the three cases I watched this afternoon offered great mysteries, and in the two that were actual whodunits, I guessed both cuplrits effortlessly.

Hal Holbrook was the major guest star on one of the episodes I watched.

And, yes, we indeed have a busy afternoon - about 130 Men, so about 280 in total for the day.  Although it was nice to get through almost every one who had signed up (as per Equity Chorus Call procedures), due to the semi-surprisingly large turnout, we had to request that each person only sing 8 bars.  Yes, that's usually enough to tell if a person can sing, but, man can some of those 8 bar cuts be short(!).  -Of course, there were a few people who just kept on singing after the designated 8 bars... And singing... And singing...  In fact, I stopped twice in the middle of one woman's piece since I thought she was done... twice.  20 bars later, when she came to the piano to pick up her music, she commented to me, "Oh, I know that song is hard to play.."  -No, you wrote "STOP" in the music so I stopped.  (And she written in "STOP" at one place.)  -And we told everyone to prepare 8 bars."  In any case...

I had a wonderful time today in the room with the folks from Binder Casting and the ever-amazing and uber-talented Rob Berman - who was back from Chicago after getting the new production of Passion open there (with Ana Gasteyer).

bk - you and I seem to have had the same experiences with POLTERGEIST and TWILIGHT ZONE: THE MOVIE!  Although I don't have the dvds yet - tonight on my shopping trip - I've always seen the brilliance of the former and the could-have-been of the latter.
One of my craziest memories of TZ: THE MOVIE is cheering a little too loudly when I heard Jennifer Warnes' voice emanating from the jukebox at the start of the Vic Morrow segment, the title tune "Nights are Forever" is, I guess, a guilty pleasure for me.  It's one of those songs which isn't really memorable in the film itself, not available (I don't think) on any commercial cd, nor on any Warnes compilation - though it was available on vinyl - also as a twelve-inch remixed single.


I once dated a twelve-inch remixed single (and it wasn't the remix that attracted me).

He was supposed to come to opening night of The Brain - I'd arranged his tickets, but he was too ill.  But, he's now in a pain-free place, probably hob-nobbing with all his heroes.

What a fun and funny night I had at the circus!!  I went early to the preshow where you could talk to the performers, get autographs, walk around the ring, kids could try a little trapeze etc...so I saw Jon the Host aka known as Jon from the clown team on TAR season 4.  So as he was signing my program I said "You looked a lot taller on TV" he said "Oh, did you see me on last night" I said "No, I was talking about the Amazing Race, I was cheering for you." He said "We ALMOST had that million!

He asked where I was sitting and when I told him I was in the very front row he told me to get his attention when he came out for the show. So, as he entered, I smiled and he pointed at me and waived.  I didn't think much more of it.

I also watched the first special feature in the set. They called it a Roundtable Discussion, but it was the cast at a restaurant in LA answering questions sent in by fans. There was more kidding around rather than taking most of the questions seriously, but it was an OK feature.

Next, I watched MY NAME IS EARL from last night. Not the funniest it's ever been, but it was fun to see how Earl got his house and truck and also get some backstory about the other primary characters on the show.

30 ROCK had a funny episode with Will Arnet vying with Alec Baldwin for the Presidency of GE, and fun stuff from the other regulars, particularly Kenneth the page and Tracy's wife (played by Sherri Shepherd).

When I got home, Boo was exploring a Kleenex box that I had jst emptied. She got a little too curious and couldn't get the box off her head. The poor thing was starting to panic. I finally got to her and got it off. Then I laughed and laughed....she was not amused.

GHOST WHISPERER had a very moving episode dealing with an Iraq veteran being haunted by men in his squad who were killed over there.

WOMEN'S MURDER CLUB was indeed a mystery, but this one wasn't stronly plotted, and three of the women had boy friend/husband/ex-husband issues that kept distracting me from concentrating on the clues. Still, I'll continue watching for now.

I completed my evening by watching a very exciting MOONLIGHT episode. A newly created vampire goes rogue, and Mick attempted to track him down. Quite scary at times and well paced.

Good Evening!

Back from Mary Poppins... I watched from the pit tonight.  And when I left the theatre, I ran into a few friends who were at the show tonight to see someone in the cast.  With the auditions I played, today was filled with lots of mini-reunions.  :)

CAPTAIN AMERICA TO RISE FROM THE DEAD!

That is all we need to further blur the line between guns an make-believe.  Why if Captain America can be shot and killed by a sniper's bullet and come back to life; then little Bobby can come back to life after I shoot him!

For what it's worth, the original Captain America, Steve Rogers, will remain dead. A new character will be donning the costume.

I think kids who read comics are too smart to believe that in real life, the dead aren't really dead.

It's kids who watch cartoons - the old ones with Wiley Coyote rushed, blown up and killed, and then still alive, for example,  that lose that distinction.

Or those who watch movies such as...was it called Stunt Guy?..about a wannabe stunt man who kept crashing into things, but walked away from what shold have been crippling injuries if not death...or Jackass, with similar activities.

I see that the Mercury retrograde is giving us all troubles....it will go on until November 1......

I had an auto accident....minor fender bender....today....and also got a nail in one of my tires.....was almost LATE for the wedding rehearsal while waiting to get it fixed.

But the rehearsal was fine.....hopefully the wedding will go as well.

GHOST WHISPERER had a very moving episode dealing with an Iraq veteran being haunted by men in his squad who were killed over there.

It was VERY moving for me, even with some of the "hoke" gratuitously added (for some reason, the "salutes" always strike me as over-the-top schmaltz).

And the fork ran away with the spoon, too.

Yes, it was a most excellent episode, with some interesting back-story, to boot!  This show has not deisappointed me yet.

In the "I blame Jose" category, DR Jose, what did you do yesterday morning to provoke Josh Drimmer to run around Times Square stark naked?  The man was rounded up by the police and carted off to Belleview.

Jose wouldn't share his cookies.
That, or he was heard to laugh and say, "Let him eat monkey cake!"

Poor guy just couldn't take it!

It hurts my bioinic leg too much to stay logged on for too long, but I send good vibes to all.   When I'm not jarring every bone in my body by hopping around on my  walker, I am amusing myself by using my desk chair to scoot around the house (which of course only reminds of things like "Turkey Lurkey Time' and "A Secretary is Not a Toy.")   Always better to live life in a Musical Comedy Fashion!  :)
