It’s Bozology 101: Clowns scare kids

They’re ‘universally disliked by children,’ British researchers discover

Wed., Jan. 16, 2008

LONDON - Bad news for Coco and Blinko — children don't like clowns, and even older kids are scared of them.

That's the finding of a poll of youngsters by researchers from the University of Sheffield who were examining how to improve the decor of hospital children's wards.

The study, reported in the Nursing Standard magazine, found all the 250 patients aged between 4 and 16 they quizzed disliked the use of clowns, with even the older ones finding them scary.

"As adults we make assumptions about what works for children," said Penny Curtis, a senior lecturer in research at the university.

"We found that clowns are universally disliked by children. Some found them quite frightening and unknowable."

`SHREK' TO OPEN DEC. 14 ON BROADWAY

Tuesday, February 12, 2008

NEW YORK —  Still no actor to play the title character, but "Shrek the Musical," the Broadway-bound adaptation of the popular DreamWorks Animation SKG feature, has its spirited princess, villain, opening date and New York theater.

The show will open Dec. 14 at the Broadway Theatre, with preview performances beginning Nov. 8, Bill Damaschke, president of DreamWorks Theatricals, announced Monday. An out-of-town tryout will be held at Seattle's Fifth Avenue Theatre, Aug. 14-Sept. 21.

No word yet on who will play Shrek or his friend Donkey but Princess Fiona will be Sutton Foster, currently starring as Inga in "Young Frankenstein." Foster has appeared in such Broadway musicals as "Thoroughly Modern Millie," "Little Women" and "The Drowsy Chaperone."

Christopher Sieber, a member of the original cast of "Monty Python's Spamalot," will play the evil Lord Farquaad while Kecia Lewis-Evans will be the Dragon.
"Shrek," which will be directed by Jason Moore, has book and lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire and music by Jeanine Tesori. It is based on the book by William Steig as well as the movie, which, so far, has two sequels.

Perhaps HHW's Cannibal-In-Residence, George, can mosey to Seattle and review the Ogre.

"Due to the weather, all Dayton Metro Libraries (Main and all branch locations) are on a 2 hour delay this morning, Tuesday, February 12."

Of course, the phone call notifying me of this arrived after I was up and showered, so here I am.  Now, will we eventually close all together or will I sacrifice another vacation day and just not go in?

Good morning, all! I slept quite well last night for the first timein over a month.  At 2:34 am I woke to a panic attack that something had crawled across my hand, jumped out of bed, turned on all the lights and looked all over the sheets for any sign of bugs.  Nothing at all.

I must say that I really like the new configuration of my apartment, and I'm quite happy that a lot of needless things have been tossed.  I plan to continue this process for the next month or so, along with the weekly Steri-Fab mopping and daily vacuuming.  And, outside of the current financial woes, the timing for this situation could not have been better in terms of my work load.  Speaking of finances, I heard from my cabaret lady, and I think she's mailing the check tday (fingers crossed!).

This morning, I'm off to Toyland to copy all of my Lady Of The Slipper programs for the report I'm writing.  And I'll stop and buy the new gallon of Steri-Fab.

Third things third, it would seem that DR TCB is not the only rich man on HHW according to my email this morning:
Dear Beloved

My name is Mrs.Margret King I am a dying woman who has decided to  donate
what I have to charity through you.You may be wondering why I chose   you.
But someone has to be chosen. I am 59 years old and was diagnosed  for
cancer about 2 years ago,immediately after the death of my husband  who
had left me everything he worked for.I have been touched by the lord  to
donate from what I have inherited from my late husband to charity  through
you for the good work of humanity,rather than allow my relatives  to use
my husband's hard earned funds inappropriately.
I have asked the lord to forgive me all my sins and I believe he
has,because He is merciful. I will be going in for an operation,and I pray
 that I survive the operation. I have decided to WILL/Donate the sum of
$5.5 Million (Five Million five Hundred thousand Dollars) to charity  
through you for the good work of the lord, and to help the motherless,less
 privileged and also for the assistance of the widows.
At the moment I  cannot take any telephone calls, due to the fact that my
relatives are  around me and I have been restricted by my doctor from
taking telephone  calls because I deserve all the rest I can get.
Presently,I have informed my lawyer about my decision in WILLING this fund
to charity through you. I wish you all the best and may the good
Lord bless you abundantly, and please use the funds well and always extend
the good work to others.If you are interested in carrying out this task,i
will inform my Family Lawyer so that he can arrange the release  of the
funds to you. I know i have never met you but my mind tells me to do
this,and I hope  you act sincerely.I will pay you 30% of this money if you
will assist  me because I am now too weak and frigile to do things myself
because of  my cancer.
NB: I will appreciate your utmost confidentiality in this matter until
the task is accomplished,as I don't want anything that will Jeopardize  my
last wish. I hope to receive your early response, as it will encourage me,
to stop establishing further contacts as it regards to this subject
matters.

Remain Blessed in The Lord
Mrs.Margret King

Today I'll be beginning Jean-Luc Godard's PIERROT LE FOU from Criterion. Thankfully, no more TV box sets on the February horizon, but I do have the four disc box set of THE LAST EMPEROR coming up. Probably won't get to it until the weekend or even next week.

TV Reminders:

BIG BROTHER ande JERICHO begin anew tonight.

A new BOSTON LEGAL airs tonight.

AMERICAN IDOL has the two hour Hollywood round tonight which will be the first time I'll be watching the show in weeks. (Thus, no HOUSE tonight. New episodes of HOUSE are over anyway until the show renews production.)

There is a lot on my tv schedule for tonight. For some reason the 9pm slot has 3 shows that i watch (AMERICAN IDOL, ONE TREE HILL and BIG BROTHER).

I think I will watch the first hour of IDOL at 8pm. And then switch to the premiere of BIG BROTHER.  Then I'll record BOSTON LEGAL.

I must say the Hollywood part of IDOL is my absolute favorite. And considering how much time they spend on the auditions, I wish they made the Hollywood part 2 weeks worth of shows instead of just today and tomorrow.

Hopefully some of the really good singers that they featured will make it to the top 20 (or however many it is this year).

I agree with you DR Jennifer. I love the Hollywood rounds, and I would think tremendous tension could be worked up for a series of episodes showing the intense pressure they're all under to perform.

Inevitably, the Hollywood round episode is the lowest rated of the season, and I've never understood why.

My Berstein Faves:

ALL of ON THE TOWN; remake this for theaters, or even tv, with the score intact!

Most of CANDIDE; I've only got three recordings. . . :'(

All of TROUBLE IN TAHITI.

ALL of MASS.  Also love Barbara Cook's recording of "Sing God a Simple Song,"  I was there at Carnegie Hall for that recording!

First Cason, now Miss Karen  :D.

I'm sorry I have to go.  My book discussion group is meeting this morning.  We read "Gentlemen and Players" by Joanne Harris.  I'm interested in what others have to say about it.  There is a mystery to the story, and well my problem with most mysteries is I tend to get them.  The more way out the mystery, oddly the less I enjoy it.  I'm reading, figure it out fairly early, and think "I can't be right!" through the rest of the book.  It sort of distracts me from the journey.  


Possible spoiler:



I came up with various scenarios of how I could be right.  At least it was the logical one, not one of the silly possibilities.

DR Jane, I just finished a mystery which you book group may be interested in:
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v305/minx_the_dog/battalions.jpg)

I'd never heard of the author until Stephen King recommended this novel on one of his backpage essays in Entertainment Weekly.
The novel is set primarily at a country estate in England during WWI, but moves through time swiftly - starting with a present-day prologue - to startling conclusions.
I say conclusions, because just when you think you have the central murder mystery solved, another piece of the puzzle surfaces, leading to mystery upon mystery.
I think that the last novel I read of this caliber in the mystery genre was Wilkie Collins' THE WOMAN IN WHITE.

In the second one I watched, Oscar saved Felix's life, and Felix spent the rest of the episode thanking him in ways that became increasingly irritating. One of my favorite episodes from Season 2.

Next, I watched a Godard film I had never seen before PIERROT LE FOU. It's a grab bag of seemingly everything Godard could think of to throw into the movie. Simple story surrounded by absurdity, all in the nature of "free cinema" which he so strongly espoused.

I can see why it wasn't a hit in its day. It's certainly an interesting experiment, and Belmondo is his usual gorgeous self. Anna Karina was married to Godard at the time, so naturally the camera lingers on her. She does have a small but lilting singing voice. (Yep, he threw in a couple of musical numbers for her that come in out of nowhere.)

Great news! I just read this in VARIETY about shows returning to production after the strike:

"Dramas moving forward include all three editions of the "CSI" franchise, "NCIS," "Without a Trace," "Cold Case," "Numbers," "Criminal Minds," "Ghost Whisperer" and "Moonlight."

Laffers given a greenlight are "Two and a Half Men," "How I Met Your Mother" and "The Big Bang Theory."

Net is hoping to crank out eight segs of its comedies and six or seven segs of each of its dramas. Newcomer "Moonlight" will likely produce fewer segs."

But they ARE going new episodes of MOONLIGHT which had been iffy as late as last week. I'm delighted with this news!

Quote
`SHREK' TO OPEN DEC. 14 ON BROADWAY

Tuesday, February 12, 2008

NEW YORK —  Still no actor to play the title character, but "Shrek the Musical," the Broadway-bound adaptation of the popular DreamWorks Animation SKG feature, has its spirited princess, villain, opening date and New York theater.

The show will open Dec. 14 at the Broadway Theatre, with preview performances beginning Nov. 8, Bill Damaschke, president of DreamWorks Theatricals, announced Monday. An out-of-town tryout will be held at Seattle's Fifth Avenue Theatre, Aug. 14-Sept. 21.

No word yet on who will play Shrek or his friend Donkey but Princess Fiona will be Sutton Foster, currently starring as Inga in "Young Frankenstein." Foster has appeared in such Broadway musicals as "Thoroughly Modern Millie," "Little Women" and "The Drowsy Chaperone."

Christopher Sieber, a member of the original cast of "Monty Python's Spamalot," will play the evil Lord Farquaad while Kecia Lewis-Evans will be the Dragon.
"Shrek," which will be directed by Jason Moore, has book and lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire and music by Jeanine Tesori. It is based on the book by William Steig as well as the movie, which, so far, has two sequels.

Perhaps HHW's Cannibal-In-Residence, George, can mosey to Seattle and review the Ogre.

der Brucer

I was thinking about it!  And I'd also heard/read that Christopher Fitzgerald (who was in Young Frankenstein with Sutton in Seattle) will be in it, also.

I read a review of the Joan Crawford box set, and Warners has transferred TORCH SONG with a widescreen aspect ratio and anamorphic enhancement (the laserdisc was fullscreen). Can't wait now to see how this will affect the campy melodrama of the piece.

Good morning, all! I slept quite well last night for the first timein over a month.  At 2:34 am I woke to a panic attack that something had crawled across my hand, jumped out of bed, turned on all the lights and looked all over the sheets for any sign of bugs.  Nothing at all.

I must say that I really like the new configuration of my apartment, and I'm quite happy that a lot of needless things have been tossed.  I plan to continue this process for the next month or so, along with the weekly Steri-Fab mopping and daily vacuuming.  And, outside of the current financial woes, the timing for this situation could not have been better in terms of my work load.
 And I'll stop and buy the new gallon of Steri-Fab.


Good Lord, elmore, we need to get you laid!

DR Cillaliz, be sure to print up all of your email correspondence and file them with your return receipts, etc. You will probably need then when dealing with Dell. I know I did.

I had a phone message that they are sending out the new parts directly to me and a techician will call to install them. This is good. I can check out the power cord and if it solves all the problems I can cancel the technician. Or have him come over and look and see that it's working.  I'm still under full warranty and this is something that is fairly common with this laptop, so there weren't really too many questions and the parts are on their way here.

This morning I was cleaning the 5 1/2 inches of snow we had out of the driveway and the cutest Brittany Spaniel came bounding through the snow. I didn't recognize him and he wasn't on a leash so I called him over just as he was about to go into the road where a neghbor was coming by in an SUV. She stopped and said she didn't recognize him either. Luckily for Lucky (the name of the dog) he had his address on his collar. He was about 5 blocks from home and was very cold.  She decided to let him in her SUV and gave him a ride home.

I later drove by the house and am happy to say it looked well taken care of and appeared that someone had done a lot of shoveling.  I think he probably got out while they were cleaning out the snow and just got lost.  I'm really glad I could be a part of returning him to a warm spot with his family.

I couldn't tell which one one.  I think it was one of my top three, not sure what happened to the other two.

Thank you, that was fun.  I believe the show recorded last night. :)

By the way, the breed comes from Bern, Switzerland, not Burma.  It is a common mistake, and I noticed the big lettering, under Bernese, on the link says Bermese.

I found a dog today, and I could tell she was old and/or not feeling well.  She did have tag and got to stay in fenced in patio and have a few cookies and some water.  Her owner lives in the complex , and she had gotten out while he had a washer and dryer installed.  I did not recognize her without her owner.   She was quite sweet (and kind of limping along like me), but the only way I could figure out where she belonged was by her tags!

I have not watched AMERICAN IDOL yet (well just the first few minutes).

Interesting that they have changed the format.

Like Canadian Idol, they can play instruments while they sing (guitar, or piano).

And I really like the other change. Instead of the contestants merely singing one song and getting the boot, there is now a second chance.

If you are really good you move on to the finals (2 days later). But if you do not impress the judges right away you get a second chance.

I love this idea!

I'm fine with that, just give me the news first.  It is much easier, for me personally, to absorb bad news first & have time to do some research BEFORE I speak to the doctor.  When you are in shock much of what you hear goes over your head & it's difficult to think straight.

As for the Topic of the Day...

"Trouble in Tahiti" - especially the closing moments.

"Arias & Barcarolles" - This song cycle is written for two singers and two pianists at one piano (piano duet).  I performed this in a concert where it was paired with "Trouble in Tahiti".  A quite wonderful evening of music.

"Prelude, Fugue and Riffs" - The original recording with Benny Goodman really swings!  However, there's a recording done by members of the Berlin Philharmonic which has to be one of the "straightest", least hip performances ever put on record.

"I Hate Music"

I enjoyed the changes in the Hollywood round of IDOL, but I certainly did not agree with some of the people sent through to the top 50. I couldn't believe they'd rave about people who were certainly singing flat, screeching, or noodling around the melody without actually SINGING IT.

Best change - getting rid of the group singing which I always found unfair and more about personalities meshing than actual singing. It's one-on-one singing as it should be.

Truth be told: I heard no one that immediately floored me with vocals. Of course, we still haven't heard everyone sing. I saw people jumping up and down but never heard them sing a note tonight. So, the real interest will start next week when we get to hear all of the men and women chosen for the semifinals.

In fact, by the time I got there, there were no more seats and no more standing room in the events room, so I and a bunch of other people stood outside the room looking and listening in.  Kathie Lee Gifford, Lucie Arnaz, David Friedman and Christopher Marlowe were the main members of the panel.  Lucie Arnaz sang ("Help Is On the Way"), and they all shared stories and memories of Nancy Lamott, as well as showed clips from the new DVD compilation.  -And I also found out tonight that Ms. Gifford is writing a screenplay for a biopic on Nancy Lamott.

I return to work tomorrow.  Have to work Thursday, as well.  And then, it's another four-day weekend.

Ahhh, THIS is the life.

I watched tonight's episode of "Boston Legal," and now am watching "Carpoolers."
