Good Morning!

Well... I'm still up, but will be heading to bed shortly.  Unfortunately, the apartment is very cold right now since the radiators aren't on.  Of course, they'll probably come on around 4:30am like they usually do, but that doesn't do any of us any good between from the hour of 8:00pm when they turn off.  ???  -Although, there was a report on tonight's news about how landlords are required by law to keep the building at a certain minimum temperature - and I'm sure that, right now, we're below that minimum.  We shall see...

Looking back at the imdb for THE SINGLE GUY - Was Ernest Borgnine really on only one episode of that show?  I seem to remember him being on more often than that - or maybe I watched his episode several times???

Good morning, all!  I have a 10 am meeting in Toyland with our mighty office manager Matthew, a wonderful man. We need to get the libretto for the new edition of The Lady Of The Slipper and do some fixes on the Act Thre libretto for Babes In Toyland.

After that, I'm back here for one more round of inventory and sealing more cartons; I finished about 16 yesterday, so there are around 26 to go.

DR MBarnum, thank you for the package this week. I must admit that I'm a bit afraid to put one of the discs in my DVD player!

A belated Happy Valentine's Day to you all (those who observe, anyway!)

I worked that day, and then came home to lots of treats from my DH.

We have given up on having flowers in the house anymore, because 4 big and energetic cats don't  mix well with flower vases. But Mr. Linton had two dozen red roses waiting, cut short and in a basket---beautiful and cat proof---waiting for me when I got home.

He picked up some things to cook for dinner, and we had the spaghetti that was leftover from our birthday party. (My mom's parnter always makes extra so we can bring some home.) It was delish and we had some nice wine. For dessert, he picked up some dangerously chocolate ganache tarts from our friends at the French bakery, and we each had a huge strawberry dipped in chocolate. Yummmm!

We went for a walk around the neighborhood between dinner and dessert.

My DH also gave me a lovely card, and something I have been coveting since childhood. I have bought a few of them for the kids of friends, but never had one for myself. It is the kind of thing that my parents would have deemed frivolous because it's sort of a one-shot deal; you make the garden and then you throw it away. I always wanted one, but never thought of getting one for myself now that I'm a "grown-up".

I will document the process once i've begun...

We are going to use a new accountant this year. I have been going to the same one for over 20 years, but the past few years she has made mistakes that we have had to pay interest for and she still charged us for her labor to fix her mistake.

The past tax year she pawned us off on a new accountant who didn't speak English very well and the meeting took twice as long and was twice as expensive.

Now that we have moved, it would be inconvenient to try and use an accountant in Marietta, so it's a good time to change, and a good excuse so that we don't hurt her feelings.

I think we will try working with a friend who has a thriving home accounting business. Her husband us the artistic director of the Shakespeare Tavern, so she will be more familiar with the needs of freelancers and people in the arts than our previous accountant.

Too bad FJL is so far away...

DR Jane, my CLOSER post didn't say much more than the fact that it will return in July. But I can add this: every year, creator James Duff chooses a theme for the season. Last season it was  "family". The squad as a family, Brenda's family, Brenda and Fritz, and the season finale, with the boy who lost his brother but was taken in by Brenda's parents.

This season, the theme is "power" and we will be seeing some power struggles between Brenda and Taylor, among other things.

Also, there may be a character who is no longer with the squad. That's all I'm sayin'... Although savvy TV viewers may be able to hazard a guess...

Post by: Edisaurus on February 16, 2008, 07:19:28 AM
Yesterday we did a lot of research in the deed room in Marietta, preparing to protect the antebellum house next to ours from the latest fiasco the chinchy bassa developer has up his sleeve. It's a long and boring story that I won't go into. But I do have to mention one of the documents the city gave us. (We told them our plan and they were more than willing to help us achieve it.)

One of the documents was a letter from the developer's wife (he often deeds property over to her when it becomes "inconvenient" for him to have them) in which she said that she wanted to designate him as her "reprehensive".

Wow! That gave us the laugh of the year, and the whole staff found it hilarious. We all decided that after years of battling the bassa, we could finally agree on something!

The fact that you could tell that the bassa wrote it, because it is almost illiterate, makes it even funnier!

Edi - She charged you for her labor to fix HER error?

Sounds outrageous.  Maybe her office billing person just charged the time on through without her knowing about it?  

Did you "protest" that it was her error?  Or did you just not want to make waves?

We did call her about it, but didn't protest too much, just wanted to giver her the chance to see if she would offer to fix it. Since she didn't, we thought maybe it was something we shouldn't expect. Anyway, it's a good time to change, since we've moved. I like her a lot, but she doesn't have any other clients in the "biz", so I think someone who understands it might be more helpful to us. We aren't good business people. We always pay our taxes on time, over pay them even, since we can't predict our work load, but I think there are probably things we don't know about that might save us some $$.
Title: Re:THE HOLLYWOOD COLLECTORS SHOW
Post by: Edisaurus on February 16, 2008, 07:31:20 AM
Another thing that happened last year was that the state income tax bureau made a mistake and thousands of people here had to hire accountants to deal with the error. Obviously not her fault, but i felt that the govermnet should have covered the cost of straightening that out, or at least let us take it off our taxes.

Greg sorted it out for us with the tax dept. so we didn't have to use the accountant, but it seemed really unfair to be that so many people had to pay for a mistake that they didn't make. (The new accountant said many of her clients had the same problem---you have to wonder sometimes if it really WAS a mistake!)

I just did some quick research of JAKERS! at Variety, and it seems to be a PBS children's animated series which has won both the Emmy and the Humanitas prize during its run. So, it should be interesting to watch, certainly different to the films I've been watching this week.

Soon I will get cleaned up and make myself presentable to the movie stars. Then I will scrounge for some breakfast. I am not going to eat at the hotel because I just do not want to spend $20 again for scrambled eggs (their prices are really high). I think there is a McDonald's across the street.

Don't blame you a bit about that. When I go places on my own, I always eat either fast food or try to find the cheapest place possible. I might treat myself to one expensive meal out. If I'm with a group, I go along with group decisions about places to eat.

DR Jose, what kind of espresso maker do you use, and do you like it? we're in the market for one. When we lived in Marietta, we could get a 3 shot espresso latte for $2 at our local roasters because we were regulars and help them out when we're there and they need something.

Now that we've moved to Atlanta and Starbucks is our only nearby option, well, we could buy an espresso maker for less than we've already spent. I wish I had invested in Starbucks 10 years ago. It's amazing how something that didn't exist not too long ago has now become a necessity for so many people.

THE OSCAR is one of those so bad it's good movies for me. I especially love the moment when Stephen Boyd thinks his name is going to be announced and stands up prematurely, and then awkwardly turns it into a standing ovation, stiffly clapping for the real winner. It makes me laugh every time!

THE OSCAR is one of those so bad it's good movies for me. I especially love the moment when Stephen Boyd thinks his name is going to be announced and stands up prematurely, and then awkwardly turns it into a standing ovation, stiffly clapping for the real winner. It makes me laugh every time!

And the winner is FRANK (pause long enough for Paul Harvey to drive a truck through it) SINATRA!

LOL--my fave moment, too.

You probably know this already, but the "real" Oscars used Faith's fanfare music from the score for their opening music for several years.

When I see the word Virago, I think of the Cole Porter lyric "and Fedora(?)the wild virago/ I'm lucky I missed her/gangster sister/from Chicago." I like GK in CHARADE, but that's cause I like everyone in and everything about CHARADE; Falk=The IN-LAWS, and Borgnine is of course, THE WILD BUNCH, one of my all time faves.Car CD is Laura Nyro's last CD, which I just bought(Unusual for her, there's a Gershwin song and a Rodgers and Hart song, tho she sings it as "You were too Good to Me") For DVD, my Secret Santa returned to work after 2 months out with a broken knee, so in addition to Laura Nyro, I bought the DVD of the series DANCE TO THE MUSIC OF TIME: I loved the books, but for some reason this Brit mini-series was never picked up by PBS or A&E that I could discover; My favorite title of the various volumes? BOOKS DO FURNISH A  ROOM, which is definitely true of my apt.

Got my photos, plus a few more, at Eddie Brandt's and was talking with Tony, one of the clerks who I see everytime I visit the shop.  I never realized until today that he used to be an actor...he played on THE WONDER YEARS as Tony Barbella, the punk kid who was always beating up Fred Savage. He also was a semi-regular on SILK STALKINGS as Dominic DeBarto.

While I was at the shop I found a photo of him from the short lived 1987 TV series he was on titled EVERYTHINGS RELATIVE which also starred Jason Alexander and Anne Jackson and he autographed it for me. What fun!

Said howdy to BK, DR Adriana, and Bert I. Gordon then wondered over and chatted with Frank Stallone. We discussed Billy May, Matt Munro, Dick Haymes, and Frankie Laine all of whom were big inspirations for him and the reason he decided to do his wonderful CDs of old standards...and he does them far better justice then the other current crooners, I am telling you! He honestly is my favorite of today's American singers, along with perhaps Tom Wopat and that Guy Haines person.

"Virago" was the name (is the name?) of the University of Melbourne's Student newspaper. I would think Germaine Greer and Barry Humphries may have contributed at some stage.

Germaine Greer would have to be one of the most unhappy and bitter people on the planet. A truly ugly soul!

Good Evening!

I'm back from day of "cultcha"...

MoMA was fun and interesting and fun and interesting.  There's an exhibition of Modern Art from 1970's to today.  That was interesting part.  I'm still puzzled and amazed at the one piece of art/installation that consists of a string of 60-watt light bulbs plugged into the wall of the museum.  And then there's the video "installation" that consists of a seven VHS tapes - one for each day of the week - a TV, and a TV stand.  Each day, a different tape is put in the VCR, and the image on the screen is the day of week - which is on a constant loop.  So, today's Art was "Saturday".  -I just have to wonder if the "Tuesday" tape ever gets used since the MoMA is closed on Tuesdays? ;)

And since I was in the neighborhood, I went ahead and stopped the Carnegie Hall box office to inquire about tickets for a couple upcoming recitals and concerts.  Alas, all four of the events I was interested in were completely sold out.  The guy at the box office even started to laugh when my fourth choice came up on the computer as SRO.  Guess that means I'm supposed to go see an opera at The Met instead. ;)

I just checked into buying tickets for AMC's All-Day Oscar Showcase next weekend, but that too is also sold out!  I loved going last year - seeing all five Best Picture nominees back to back with unlimited popcorn and soda too!  I was just talking about this year's nominees with one of my roomies, then realized I had not received any sort of notification for this year's event.  So, I went to check online, and... Ah, well... I may see if there are any passes still left for sale at the theatre themselves.

Back from DEAD MAN'S CELL PHONE.  Interesting and odd to see two completely, and I mean completely, different productions of the same new play in the space of eight months.





DEAD MAN'S CELL PHONE SPOILERS





In D.C. at Woolly Mammoth, the title's Dead Man was luminously loathsome, holding forth from the cafe table at which he died earlier in the show.  I think I may have been seeing the first or second performance of the actor playing the Dead Man here, and it is a very humanizing portrayal, and he pulls out all the stops standing center stage, not at his death table.  Strange how after seeing the play only once before, I was convinced that loathsome through and through (the way it was played the first time I saw the play) was the way the character must be played - if he's not rotten to the core, where is the (momentary) sadness in our heroine falling and giving up her life for him?   But only the playwright knows what she really wanted, and this fellow is an extremely talented replacement for their NYC first choice who had to leave to shoot a film.

I did watch JAKERS! when I went back into the home theater. It's a sweet and beautifully done young children's cartoon show featuring three Irish farm animals (a pig, a duck, and a cow) who are friends and who learn valuable life lessons in each episode. The pig grows up to be the narrator of the story who tells his two grandsons stories about himself as a youth. The cast is totally Irish except for Mel Brooks who voices a a self-important sheep on the farm.

There were four episodes (they're CGI animation) along with a bunch of special features, all for the pre-school to primary school age group.

I never watched JERICHO during its first season, but I had planned to watch its second season premiere this past Tuesday night. Alas, my friend John called me right when it was coming on, and since I had other shows recording at 10 on the DVR, I couldn't record it, so I just missed it.

Anyway, tonight CBS replayed the second season premiere, and I did get to watch it. I didn't have any trouble understanding basically who people were and what was happening. Any show that brings in Esai Morales for its second season gets a look from me. Not quite the riveting experience I was expecting, but there were certainly enough tense moments to bring me back next week. Wonder if CBS will show next week's episode on Saturday as well?

Since I didn't want to watch TORCHWOOD "live" but rather wanted to see it without waiting through long commercial breaks, I watched another NCIS episode during the 9 p.m. hour. This one had the team tracking an arms shipment from "The Frog," an international terrorist who was the focus of much of this last season's long story arc.

Had a wonderful dinner with Scotty Morrow, Mark and Sherrill. The food was wonderful and so were my dinner mates. After dinner they took me on a drive up into the hills where they had hoped to show me the Hollywood sign up close. They knew of a passage road the leads up to it, but alas the gate was closed tonight (they had just been there a couple of weeks ago). Still, it was a fun ride and oh, gosh those beautiful houses up there! I must win the lottery so that I can move!

BK, I'd be curious to hear his recollections of the aborted film from his side of things.  I guess Sy's estate owns the script.  Pity.  Good script.

I just watched Pat Garrett & Billy The Kid for the first time ever tonight.  It's an interesting film and James Coburn is always immensely watchable and intriguing as are several of the smaller parts played by old character actors like Slim Pickens, Kathy Jurado, Richard Jaeckel (an always unestimated actor), and Chill Wills.  Even Bob Dylan is perfectly fine (especially reading the tin cans scene).  But I don't get Pekinpaph masterpiece here (I find The Left-Handed Gun a much more interesting Billy the Kid take).  I expect Mr. Redman may disagree.

I quote The Lovely wife's glowing notice from her performance in BOSTON MARRIAGE: "Pogue and Scott-Lynaugh are in excellent command of the play's richly stylized language, which, like Shakespeare's, could easily carry them away with its dense complexity.

"Pogue seems particularly adept at wielding an arsenal of multisyllabic Latin derivations.  One gets the feeling she talks like that all the time.  One also got that feeling when she played a heavily-accented meglomaniac male artist in last seaon's "Anton in Show Business".  Both roles are testaments to her talent and flexibility."

I'm just going to wrap up the notes, then I'll be right back.

ZZZZZ!  I don't care that it's page ten.  BK, George, do not wake me!  I'm asleep! Zzzzzz (small z's mean I'm lightly snoring...you wouldn't want me to wake up The Lovely Wife).

Are you wrapping the notes up in cellophane...or Reynolds wrap?

Are you putting in a pickle with each one you wrap?

I've been watching TV and now I'm listening to the cast recording of the new musical based on "Happy Days."  So far, I'm enjoying the CD.  I haven't read the synopsis, so I don't really know what it's supposed to be about, but I like the songs.  The songs are by Paul Williams and the book is by Gary Marshall, who created the original TV series.

How about a bag of chips and a refreshing beverage?

Wrap up those notes carefully...you'll want them to stay fresh for tomorrow.

A musical of HAPPY DAYS?  Has this musical played anywhere significant?

It's the Paper Mill production.  I would assume that the aim is to have it play regionally.  I don't know if it would work on Broadway. :-\

There was a musical version that was done in Australia in the '90s, but that only had actual 1950s music, not an original score.  That version also starred Tom Bosley.  I think he was a narrator, though and not playing Howard Cunningham.  I think.  I have that CD, but it's packed away in my garage.

I don't know if the Australian version had anything to do with this new version, either.

I don't think it's worth what it's available for on either Amazon.com or eBay! :o
