Title: THE SINGER, NOT THE SONG
Post by: bk on March 11, 2009, 12:07:17 AM
Well, you've read the notes, the notes had both singer and song, not necessarily in that order, and now it is time for you to post until the singing cows come home.

Barring a bromo, one can simply enjoy the beauty of the various species flitting about in the open (I hope everyone here witnesses a plethora of butterflies throughout their lives).

Last night, I went to see Hello, Dolly! at the 5th Avenue Theatre in Seattle.  It starred Jenifer [sic] Lewis as Dolly and Seattle's own Pat Cashman as Horace.  It was an interracial cast.  Both Dolly and Minnie Fay were African American, as well as several chorus members.  Overall, it was quite good.  Jenifer seemed to channel Pearl Bailey a bit, but she definitely made the part her own.  I'd never seen a professional production and I thoroughly enjoyed it!  Here's a picture of Jenifer:

I also have to say I am also enjoying the notes. It is nice to go down memory lane. I remember attending the recording session of Jeepers Creepers and was looking forward to meeting Ms Loudon and was disappointed she was unable to attend the session. I had no idea she was not well and was sad when she passed away. I always felt she deserved to be better know outside the broadway melieu.

I had the good fortune to see her several times on Broadway and she was a joy to watch.

Last night when the Vixter was going to bed she realized she could not locate her cellphone (which she also uses as an alarm clock).  The last time she remembered seeing it was in the dressing room at Kohl's.

After searching my car and her room and calling the phone umpteen times I hopped in the car and drove up to Kohl's (it's less than a mile from our house).

I checked the dressing room, checked with the cashiers, customer service ... no luck.

So I drove home and called our service provider and stopped service on her phone.
Title: Re: THE SINGER, NOT THE SONG
Post by: vixmom on March 11, 2009, 05:25:33 AM
This morning the Vixter was awoken by the sound of her cell phone alarm clock.

It turns out she had put the cell phone in the pocket of her hoodie which she then hung in her armoire.  Why we didnlt hear it ringing when we called it last night is beyond me butat least it is not lost.

I called our service provide this morning and had her phone reactivated

Then we drove to the supermarket to pick up the cake for her friend's surprise birthday celebration in homeroom.  We walked into the supermarket and as we were heading to
the bakery department the Vixter realized she did not have her wallet - so back to the car - back home and picked up her wallet and back to the supermarket (we only live a few blocks from there fortunately)

The cake was then collected withour further mishap.  The Vixter was delighted with how it looked.  I hope her chorus teacher didn't mind her bringing it in and than her friend likes it.

 We've been very lucky with lost phones.  I once left mine in the shopping cart at the supermarket and the cart boy found it and turned it in to customer service.

Last year Vixdad had his fall out of his jacket pocket on the train and it was found by someone a few towns over who called me from his phone.  They gave me their address and I went and collected it.

I love the butterfly pictures you have been posting.  When teh Vixter was about 4 we went to the butterfly exhibit at the Bronx Zoo.  There we did get to seea plethora of butterflies.  My inlaws were visitng at the time and they came with us.  For some reason the butterflies were attracted  to my MIL's white hair.  They kept landing on her head, much to her delight.

Since I rarely use my cellphone I haven't yet lost it. It sits in the little blue padded holder on the shelf under my nightstand waiting to be turned on and taken out into the world.

I will use it when I go to Wisconsin beginning March 27th.

I haven't lost my keys since 1994 and then I didn't really lose them, I was mugged and I don't know if the cretins took my keys thinking there might be money in the change section of the key holder or if they were separated from my body in the attack and since my glasses were broken and destroyed I couldn't see them. I had to get new keys and I've had them ever since. (15 years).

I had hoped to get there right when they opened at 8:00, but since I was still sleeping at the time, well...  So imagine my total surprise when I got up to the post office and there were only three(!?!?!?) people in front of me... And I ended up with the "friendly Lady"... And I was in and out of there in under 15 minutes(!!!!!!!)

She was actually better known earlier in her career after she replaced Carol Burnett as the regular female comedienne/singer on THE GARRY MOORE SHOW. She had an audience of many millions who knew who she was. It was after that show ended that she became better known as a Broadway Baby with only occasional appearances on television.

As you see from the above listing, LOST is a rerun this week of last week's amazing "LeFleur" episode (I assume with squeeges present).

I guess ABC didn't want to subject LOST to AMERICAN IDOL's first elimination round which is on opposite it now.

But I thought the whole reason for making LOST a midseason show was so (like '24') the season could unfold with no reruns and run straight through to the end. I guess I was mistaken.

Post by: Matt H. on March 11, 2009, 07:46:30 AM
DR Ron Pulliam, I disagree with you completely about Patrick Jane on THE MENTALIST being an overwritten character. In fact, I'd say Castle is MUCH more overwritten and much more assertively played. Simon Baker's minimalist performance gives the show a hipper, slyer tone than Fillion's gregarious rogue gives CASTLE. True, the characters are VERY different people, but I certainly don't buy your argument about the writing of Jane's character.

Different strokes, I guess.

No question, though, that both men are sex-on-a-stick appealing, at least to me.

I, too, seldom use the phone and often forget to even take it with me when I leave the house.

Until I had this bout of illness I was seldom home. Either I was at the office, or out at a real estate closing, or at the stores or church or girl scouts or  running the Vixter to or from one event or another.  I carry my cellphone all the time and have given it to the school and church and my doctors as my primary contact number.

Vixdad uses his less often but it has been very helpful when there have been issues with the trains and he needed to be collected from a different station than the one where he left his car.

The Vixter uses her phone the least of any of us but we like having that feeling that she can contact us or her grandparents if she needs us when she is out somewhere on her own.

DR vixmom, do you find that most of DR the vixter's friends have their own cellphones?  I was in a discussion the other day with my sister in law about what the appropriate age might be for a youngster to be given their first cell phone.

All these new things that parents nowadays have to deal with!    :P

I've had three cell phones, and I've never misplaced any of them. The second one began to malfunction, however, zapping all power from the battery in about 20 minutes of continual talking. That's why I ended up getting the third one I presently have.

I, too, seldom use the phone and often forget to even take it with me when I leave the house.

Until I had this bout of illness I was seldom home. Either I was at the office, or out at a real estate closing, or at the stores or church or girl scouts or  running the Vixter to or from one event or another.  I carry my cellphone all the time and have given it to the school and church and my doctors as my primary contact number.

Vixdad uses his less often but it has been very helpful when there have been issues with the trains and he needed to be collected from a different station than the one where he left his car.

The Vixter uses her phone the least of any of us but we like having that feeling that she can contact us or her grandparents if she needs us when she is out somewhere on her own. 



Completely understandable given your responsibilities and extended family.

I, of course, have no such situations.

DR MattH, do you know if IDOL will be on at 9pm from now on? I really hope not. With LIFE, and LOST (and here NIP/TUCK) also on at 9pm it makes it very crowded!

Yes, it is, the last I read, a permanent move for this season's results show.

That being said we don't use the phone just to call each other up and blather on about nonsense.  We don't beleive that cell phones were created for casual chatting - but they're great when you are trying to reach one another.  When we go to the ICON each year we tend to go our seperate ways and enjoy different events.  The cell phones enabled us to meet up between events and have meals together.

Btw, DR Jose (and anyone else who watches IDOL) obviously at the end of last night's show Simon started to hint at the twist.

I think i know what it is. ANd what simon said sort of confirmed it to me. He said that the judges would be more involved. And there has been speculation that there will be a sing-off (maybe with the bottom 3). And the judges will decide who stays.

I'm  not sure if this is one week only or not.  I guess it is in case the public vote off one of the better ones. I am not sure yet if i like this twist. I guess it depends on who is in the bottom.

I am also curious about how this proliferation of new reality shows and other television programming affects people in the field.

I am thinking here particularly of food and real-estate related shows.   I can imagine that people who work in restaurants and/or the food business, or in real estate, or even in hospitals or police departments, are now daily confronted with a whole new breed of "difficult" customer who thinks that he/she "knows it all" from watching a few television programs.

Or perhaps it's just more symptomatic of the age of the Internet in general?

They are usually quite accurate. Although for the bottom sometimes it's harder for them to predict if a lot are close together.

My favorite by far last night was Adam Lambert. I just love him. It's interesting (but predictable i guess) that danny gokey is #1. I'm happy at least that adam is #2. Not at all surprised Lil is #3. I am a bit surprised to see Alexis as #4. And more surprised to see Anoop as #5. He was not even picked top 3 in his week, he was criticized last night, and he's not even votefortheworst's pick (megan is). Then comes scott who i really like.

For the bottom they have matt, michael, megan, kris, jasmine, allison, and jorge. I can't say that i would really care if any of these went home. Although i think allison is very strong. Kris impressed me a bit last night. I never even knew who he was. I wonder between megan, allison and jorge who the judges would save. They seem to like them all a lot. BUt if the twist (post above) is true then i could see it used to save someone like allison who the judges love, but who maybe is not that popular yet with fans!

Thanks although that totally sucks! They should keep it early so kids can watch before they go to bed.

It's funny but i also watch Damages (but we get it on sundays) and ANTM (i get it on saturdays).

I suppose there will be weeks when LIFE or LOST are repeats!

Is anyone else gonna check out the new show CHOPPING BLOCK? I will try it once since i like cooking shows (top chef, hell's kitchen). BUt it doesn't sound that good from what i know about it.

All these new things that parents nowadays have to deal with!    :P

All of her friends have their own cellphones.  We got the Vixter one the summer between  7th & 8th grade so she was 13.  That summer she was in music camp all day (she had won a scholarship from school) and she was rehearsing two different shows in the evening in a church that had no public use phone available.  Since she was out of the house on her own so much we decided to get her the phone that year - we were originally planning on waiting until she got to high school.   We discovered form talking to her friends' and school mates' parents that she was one of the last to get a phone - most of them had been given phones as soon as they begamn middle school at age 11 or 12 and many had phones as young as 7 or 8.

I cannot imagine what a 7 year old needs with a cellphone unless they are allowed to be out and about on their own - not the usual situation nowadays in my neighborhood.

We are going through the cell phone debate with Gabe right now.  "All the kids have one," blah, blah, blah.  Well, not *quite* all, since Gabe doesn't, LOL.  Next year, because he's in advanced math, he'll be walking to high school from middle school for an early morning math class, so we think we'll get him one before then, which would more or less line up with the Vixter's age.

I can tell you at one time, MY FAIR LADY (OCR) was the largest selling LP recording of all time: 6 million albums. The soundtrack of THE SOUND OF MUSIC overtook it at 8 million eventually. I think that record held until SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER and eventually Michael Jackson's THRILLER.

If they do offer the judges a veto power (one per judge), it should only be a one-time deal, and could only be used to save someone once and never again.

It looks like the move to Austin is going to be postponed for a few days.

Although the loan for the sale of our Los Angeles house has been approved and "locked," the documents have not been signed yet, which means that escrow can't close before next week.  So, instead of starting our 5-day drive on Sunday (15), it probably won't begin until the latter part of the week.

Yes, the My Fair Lady cast album was HUGE, but they had a smash hit AND Columbia was an investor in the show.  A Family Affair (I owned the cast album when it came out) I'm sure sold very few LPs, although there was, even then, a collector's market - I'm sure it sold somewhere between 1000 and 3000 LPs.

Nursie, if you read all the comments in the IMDB reviews, you'd see that some really liked the Alan Bates adaptation. It's only 2 hrs long, as oppoed to the 1977 version, so it's much abridged, but i found it quite good. Rent it. Or rent the DOMBEY AND SON, which was quite good.


I read the good reviews, and I read the series was better which is why I asked for a comparison.  I prefer to watch the 2 hour movie with Alan Bates.  I think we saw Dombey and Sons, I have to check again.

Good Afternoon!

Greetings from the drab and dreary Delta terminal at LGA...

The car service ride over was OK, but... He answered an incoming call on his cellphone without a hands-free device. -I immediately called him on it, "That's illegal! If you get pulled over..." Then he switched to speaker-phone. Then once we got to LGA he had to loop the airport since he could not read/follow the arrows to the D(elta) terminal. So... No Tip! -And I think that was the first time I did not tip a driver, however, I could tell he knew not to expect one.

It looks like the move to Austin is going to be postponed for a few days.

Although the loan for the sale of our Los Angeles house has been approved and "locked," the documents have not been signed yet, which means that escrow can't close before next week.  So, instead of starting our 5-day drive on Sunday (15), it probably won't begin until the latter part of the week.

 :(

There's always something, isn't there?

 I am sorry to hear that.  Will this effect your ability to go see your play performed?

It has nothing to do with the play.

I'm not sure if I was going to take it in either way, because after the move I don't know if I want to travel for awhile.

No, the problem with the delay is that it might cause us to push the closing of the Austin house back.

Good Afternoon!

Greetings from the drab and dreary Delta terminal at LGA...

The car service ride over was OK, but... He answered an incoming call on his cellphone without a hands-free device. -I immediately called him on it, "That's illegal! If you get pulled over..." Then he switched to speaker-phone. Then once we got to LGA he had to loop the airport since he could not read/follow the arrows to the D(elta) terminal. So... No Tip! -And I think that was the first time I did not tip a driver, however, I could tell he knew not to expect one.


If you would just request Gouda, you wouldn't have these driver problems.

I watched HEROES while I ate lunch. Enjoyed John Glover as Sylar's father. Really liked the ending a lot (always enjoy when Nathan flies).

How amusing that the show is better now even though its audience is the lowest in its history. I guess a lot of people just gave up on the show.
Title: Re: THE SINGER, NOT THE SONG
Post by: Matt H. on March 11, 2009, 01:16:49 PM
Next, I watched BOLT on Blu-ray. It was quite wonderful really. Not a classic like WALL-E or THE INCREDIBLES or RATATOUILLE (it's not Pixar), but I found it much more ingratiating than Disney's last non Pixar animated film MEET THE ROBINSONS.

I'm not a big John Travolta fan, but he does a great job with the dog Bolt's voice, and the fellow playing Rhino the Hamster walks away with the movie. James Lipton, Malcolm McDowall, Susie Essman all do wonderful voices.

And I thought of bk every time Bolt's agent comes into the picture since it looks like the animators modeled him on Dr. Drew Casper!! The voice doesn't match, but the look and mannerisms are a dead ringer for Dr. Drew.

Overall, a fun afternoon of viewing, and I guess it goes without saying that the Blu-ray was stunning in both picture and sound. They did an unusual thing with the backgrounds. They're not CGI rendered but rather hand painted backdrops, and the Blu-ray lets you see brushstrokes just as if it had been cel art.

The DTS-HD MA 6.1 soundtrack is very powerful with the excerpts from Bolt's action-TV show. As fully immersive as any action movie out there. Amazing sound design.

I had plenty of time to watch all of BOLT's bonus features. There was no commentary so I didn't have to sit through the movie again thus allowing me to get through everything much faster. Also, none of the featurettes were very long. The longest was about 10 minutes.

The cable TV still needs to be set up, as well as the wireless Internet, but there's a Starbucks nearby where I can camp out, or I can head to the rehearsal studios. In the meantime, I believe I'm going to find a place to eat dinner, then do some grocery shopping.

Thanks for all the vibes.  Today was ok, not as good as yesterday and I'm not sure what I think about it all. I didn't have time to eat lunch so I went from 7:00 AM to 5:30 PM with only a bowl of oatmeal in my stomach.   

The jury got the case about 4:00 PM. They were given the option of deliberating as long as they wanted to tonight or coming back in the morning. They decided to come back in the morning at 9:30 AM.   Since they turned down the free dinner on the county, my guess is they aren't close are tired and want to go home and start fresh in the morning.

The reason there has never been a "complete" and "official" release is motsly all due to technical issues.

The trial is all over but the shouting.  So, it won't happen again. the problem happens when a judge takes a lunch break and gives us 40 minutes to do final witness prep, get ready for closing, review jury instructions and have lunch.   It happens in trial sometimes.  Actually the adrenaline rush works fine for me until the end of the day.  I ate about an hour ago and I'm slowly starting to feel better.   It's not a big deal, just part of it.

Two DVD arrivals in today's mail prompted the following, in a discussion, but I'll spare everyone the details and cut to the conclusion:

Murder By Death has an all-star cast playing as an ensemble.

Jeffrey has a group of lead players (Steven Weber, Michael T. Weiss, Patrick Stewart, Bryan Batt) and a long list of cameo players.

There is a difference.

DR Druxy, I have a friend (Yes, one!) who is a wonderful actor.  I was telling him about your play TRACY.  He was very excited.  He wanted to know how he could get a copy of the script.  He would be terrific as Spencer Tracy.  He played opposite me in INHERIT THE WIND.

Back from the long jog, and I guess I'll address some more packages.  Had a few e-mails from Sondheim this morning about Illya - he's been going through his files, but he's really unclear whether any of his stuff ended up in the show - he told me what he worked on and I'm sending him mp3s of the LP versions of those numbers so he can check it against his lyrics and notes.

BK, even if his lyrics hadn't been used or recorded, could you record them with an appropriate singer as a bonus track?

No, because he doesn't have the music, only his lyric sketches.
Title: Re: THE SINGER, NOT THE SONG
Post by: bk on March 11, 2009, 06:41:32 PM
Addressing is finished!  I had a very good Mexican lunch at Casa Vega before helper arrived - I hadn't eaten Mexican food since starting my diet last July, and boy was it good.  Happily, I did my four miles and I should be fine and have no need to eat anything else tonight, except maybe for some fruit.

Good Afternoon!

Greetings from the drab and dreary Delta terminal at LGA...

The car service ride over was OK, but... He answered an incoming call on his cellphone without a hands-free device. -I immediately called him on it, "That's illegal! If you get pulled over..." Then he switched to speaker-phone. Then once we got to LGA he had to loop the airport since he could not read/follow the arrows to the D(elta) terminal. So... No Tip! -And I think that was the first time I did not tip a driver, however, I could tell he knew not to expect one.


If you would just request Gouda, you wouldn't have these driver problems.

DR MBarnum - The problem is when I asked for "Gouda", they asked me, "Which one?"

It looks like the move to Austin is going to be postponed for a few days.

Although the loan for the sale of our Los Angeles house has been approved and "locked," the documents have not been signed yet, which means that escrow can't close before next week.  So, instead of starting our 5-day drive on Sunday (15), it probably won't begin until the latter part of the week.

 :(

There's always something, isn't there?
At least you aren't making the drive with five dogs in the car!

(No, seriously, der B and I drove from Long Beach to Delaware with five dogs in tow, five and a half years ago.)

2 dogs and a cat are bad enough.

He can go to my website where all my 1-person (and multiple person) plays are listed.

http://pw1.netcom.com/~druxy/

However, since all my master copies are packed for the move, I'm not going to be able to service his request for a couple of months. 

Unfortunately, several of the plays [trACY, (Clark) GABLE, (Clara) BOW & (Errol) FLYNN] were written before I owned a computer, so I have to photocopy them individually...which I can't do until they're unpacked.

Thanks for telling your friend.

Good Evening!

Greetings, once again, from Charleston, South Carolina!

I'm currently at the rehearsal studio taking advantage of the wireless internet set-up here since it's not yet set up at the apartment.  However, as I briefly mentioned earlier, it's a nice apartment.  It's part of a complex, Edgewater Plantation.  Part of the complex is designated as "condo", and another part acts as corporate housing. (I'm in the corporate housing section.)  It's a nice one bedroom, with a kitchen-living room-dining area, washer/dryer, full bath, and I even have a small screened in porch which overlooks the parking lot and the other units in the "Plantation".

I'm driving a Mazda Millenia - good, small car.  It has a moon/sun roof, and since it's a full moon tonight...

I've done a little exploring of the area around my apartment and the rehearsal studios - which truly does feel like exploring since everything is set back from the road, so it's hard to see what's really there unless you turn onto each access road.  All the basic amenities are here: Target, Wal-Mart, Whole Foods, Publix, Harris Teeter, TJ Maxx, Steinmart, etc., etc., etc.  I ended up dining at Brixx Pizza tonight - decent franchise-chain salad and pizza, and picked up a copy of the Charleston City Paper to start getting a better idea of more local food options.

Again, as I said earlier: so far, so good.  (Ah, a No Way To Treat A Lady reference.)
Title: Re: THE SINGER, NOT THE SONG

OH!

And I got a look at my rehearsal schedule for the next couple of weeks.  The director had told me that I would have plenty of free time, and, boy, will I have plenty of free time!  Some days, I have a brief rehearsal in the morning for an hour or two, then I come back in the evening for a 7:00-10:00 one.  Otherwise, most of the rehearsals are from 7:00-10:00 in the evening, with longer rehearsal days on Saturday and Sunday to accommodate the local actors in the cast.

The rehearsal studio is just a few minutes away from downtown Charleston, so it looks like I'll be able to check everything out during the day before heading to rehearsal in the evening.  I also didn't realize that I'm only 90 minutes from Savannah, GA - Day Trip!

*The one and only time I've been to Savannah was back in 1994 - it was my first SETC!  I still remember flying out of DC in a snow and ice storm, and then landing in almost summer-like conditions in Savannah.  I think I even bought non-winter shirts when I got there.  It will be nice to head back there and see more of the city - especially since all I really saw back then were the two hotels, the two hotel ballrooms and the canal walk area which connected the two venues.

Just in case I don't happen to post again from my apartment via my iPhone...

Goodnight.

I had an enjoyable evening of viewing. I began with THE THREE FACES OF EVE on DVD. Hadn't watched the whole movie in a long time, and I enjoyed seeing it again.

It's a flashy role for Joanne Woodward, but honestly, I wouldn't have given her the Oscar for this. I would have given it to Deborah Kerr for HEAVEN KNOWS, MR. ALLISON.

Woodward would have won my OScar for SUMEMR WISHES, WINTER DREAMS.

ON THIS DAY IN THEATRE HISTORY:

Thirty-six years ago, in 1973, the stars gathered on stage at the Shubert Theatre to present SONDHEIM:  A MUSICAL TRIBUTE.

It will never happen: there was some off-pitch singing, some screwed up performances and the producer left one singer deliberately off the album, I've heard, so I doubt he'll release ever a complete performance.

I wish that someday a legitimately released COMPLETE recording of the entire evening could be released.  I know I've heard tell that there's an illegitimate complete recording (;)), but I'd like something official.

It will never happen: there were some off-pitch singing, some screwed up performances and the producer left one singer deliberately off the album, I've heard, so I doubt he'll release ever a complete performance.

I have heard it too.

Some of the miscues involved hitting microphones and causing feedbacks (You're Gonna Love Tomorrow)

Could I Leave You for example is not the live performance but a studio recreation.

 A lot of the remarks are filled with mispronounced names, wrong song titles and other misinformation. Fpr example: Donna McKechnie is introduced as Donna McKenny or something close to that. I Remember is I Remember Sky, There  Won't Be Trumpets came out as There Will Be No Trumpets.

But I always thought with today's technology these miscues could be fixed. Not the remarks of course
