And just to make sure no one misses it...I've been cast as "Ensemble 6" in TAO (http://www.olytheater.com/)'s production of BK and David Wechter's The Brain From Planet X!

We don't start rehearsals until next March and it doesn't open until late April.  That's a long wait.

Good night, BK.

Good morning, all! The alarm went off at 6:00 am, and I've mopped the bathroom floor, got the laundry in the washers, and I'm all caught up on the posts. Last night I was in bed by 9:30; I was home from the movie, did a bit of work on Brent's album and went straight to bed.

Today, I'm taking care of all my usual tasks early so I can spend the rest of the day on the album. I go to DC tomorow on the 1 pm train, but if George comes in to do the shelves, I want to be well out of his way for him to work until I leave.

DR Jose, thanks for the Woodstock info! It looks as though the photos were a reference for the designers of the film. The more I think about it, the more I liked it. I hope it does well. I really identified with Emil Hirsch as the Viet Nam vet. Everone I knoew in the late 60s or early 70s who had been in Viet Nam came back emotionally damaged, not so severely as my Uncle Kelly who survived two years in a Japanese prisoner-of-war camp, and he was really deranged by the experience. Not a well woman at all.

DR George, great news about "The Brain!"

!!!!!!!!!!!!! Happy Birthday to Former DR Hisaka !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

re: bears in the suburbs.

I'm sure it is possible. But wouldn't the bear have to come from somewhere.

In my instance there is city all around the small forest (hi DR Jose). So unless it had been in the woods for a very long time i just don't think it is likely i will see a bear.

Tonight on tv is the second to last episode of TRUE BLOOD season 2.

And also the DAYTIME EMMYS. I'm really bummed that this year they are on the CW, which i don't get. Although my sister said she would record it for me.

Oh and also BIG BROTHER is on. I'm curious who DRs MBarnum and RonP like.

I think it would make a big difference if you watch tv only vs following the feeds.

I won't put any non-tv spoilers of who won hoh, pov...

My favorites were Jeff and Jordan. But now I just barely like them. They turned into really mean people (even though they didn't show it on tv). Hopefully they will show it.

I've strongly disliked natalie for a while. Although she is playing a good game. I like kevin just okay (mostly because he aligned with nat).

My fav is definitely michele. ANd j&j have been so unbelievably mean to them. I just can't believe they turned into ugly people. :(

Regarding yesterday's list, it may be out of print but the film soundtrack of How to Succeed was released on CD in the late 90's. It was one of those Ryko Enhanced CDs with the trailer included. I have the CD in front of me. It was also released on cassette at the same time. As I said, it's probably out of print now but it is out there somewhere in a CD release.

Good morning.

State Fair food:  Curly fries, frozen bananas, cotton candy, corn dogs, barbecue pork sandwiches.  ALWAYS FRESHLY MADE, NOT THAT BUY AT THE MARKET FROZEN STUFF.  We were at the Pomona Fair every year at 7AM for years, lots of walking but worth it.  Race track, concert at night, rides lots of rides, farm animals, model trains, home made jams etc,. from all over the country to take home for the year. Yum.

I haven't been to a state fair in probably four decades, so I have NO memory of the food that I ate. I do know back then there were no vendors selling deep fried items like they offer now. I'd love to try some of those foodstuffs, but that'd be the only reason I'd go to a state fair now.

There is a 50% chance of rain this afternoon, and those storms are seemingly going to cool things down for a few days. I am keeping my fingers crossed that we get these much cooler temperatures.

Had an almost identical night to the one previous: fell asleep easily and quickly and slept well for 4 hours. Then, the rest of the night was spotty at best.

Since I was up so early this morning, I went ahead and put the clothes into the washing machine to get that chore finished with before the afternoon. I'll head down in a few minutes to take the clothes out of the dryer.

Always hated the Renaissance Fair, the smell of beer everywhere, the dirt everywhere, the mindless frolocking everywhere.   Even with my friend's Gypsy Wagon set up for her clothing (hand made and hand batiked) we were required to wear those stupid wench costumes.  Us poor peasants, the things we had to do when the Queen's procession came through the town.

While the clothes were washing this morning, I watched two more episodes of LIE TO ME (which finished the first disc in the 3-disc Blu-ray set). Both episodes were good and kept me guessing as to the guilty parties in the crimes being investigated. I was right in 75% of the cases.

Of course, my work project today will be to finish up with the last movie in the trilogy of THE HUMAN CONDITION. Unless something arrives in the mail tomorrow, I have nothing else in the queue. I am expecting a couple more TV box sets (GHOST WHISPERER, CSI: NY, ONE STEP BEYOND), but they haven't arrived yet. Criterion has two Blu-ray releases for later in September that also have not yet arrived.

I have never been a fan of the "Ren Fest" as my actor friends who participated called it. Ugh.

I have a soft spot for the Minnesota State Fair. The last time we went was 2004. We only went once and it was with most of my family. We wanted to go a second time without everyone but it didn't happen. The next time we are in Minnesota in August we will try to go by ourselves.

In the 60s and 70s the "deep-fried" and everything on a stick was not a part of the State Fair experience. There were cheese curds and candy apples and cotton candy and other fun foods but no deep friend Milky Ways or Pork Chop on a stick (there were Pronto Pups, the deep fried battered hot dog on a stick but that was about all). Since I haven't been to a state fair (except for 2004) in 30 years I don't know when the deep friend and stick phenoms started.

I just finished a bunch of updates on the laptop and the desktop. I will now hop in the shower and then it's off to Pier One to look at some discontinued chairs.

The weather has gone back to late summer. It's supposed to be 84 today after a couple of days of rain and blissfully cool weather.

Hope the blissfully cool keeps up for this next weekend (Labor Day) when we are on Long Island

The display case for ARSENIC AND OLD LACE is looking a bit sparse.

I have two Playbills from the original run at the Fulton Theatre -  one features Josephine Hull and Eric Von Stroheim....the other features Mr Boris Karloff.

I have a book that has a lovely photo from the original run that features Hull and Jean Adair and "Mr Witherspoon", a book that has Mr Karloff in his Frankenstein makeup. 

A Stagebill that has some fun art on the front....the production featured Jean Stapleton and Marion Ross AND Mr Jonathon Frid.

I will also add a small wine glass with real elderberries and....a bit of lace.

The State Fair in itself was not bad at all, it was just that I got stuck escorting my mom (with her walker) while my sister got to take Benny and Taylor to all the fun stuff.

Mom just wanted to see the display of art work. She has entered a painting each year since she moved up here. This year her painting was not chosen for display. She was grumpy and spent the entire time dissing the other paintings and telling everyone she encountered how her painting was not chosen. It was driving me up a wall.

To top things off, we were supposed to try and find my sister and the kids, but Sue didn't hear her cell phone when I called her to find out where she was. After an hours journey escorting my crabby mom (and her walker) across the fairgrounds, and seeing no sight of the kids and Sue, we decided to leave.

Once we left and were back on the road...THEN my sister calls me to tell me where they are.

I had been looking very forward to taking the kids on some rides and checking out all the farm animals and reptiles.

The Western Washington Fair, known far and wide as the Puyallup Fair, runs September 11 thru 27.  It is one of the ten largest fairs in the country, and the single largest event in the State of Washington.  It is still a lot of fun (I like to see all the products being hyped..."it sleces.....it dices"); but it really has become expensive.  Not a bad as a day at Disneyland, but still expensive.

Our favorite Renaissance fair was in California. I don't know why it would be better there, or if it was still new to us.   I remember taking the boys in Pennsylvania, not sure if we went to one anywhere besides the two states.

I don't think I have a favorite fair food.  There were deep fried twinkies at the music fest in Bethlehem, PA.  I thought they looked disgusting & would not try one to report to Keith.

specifically the line:

at yesterday's performance, it played to a front row of twelve mostly bald-headed men and about twenty others scattered through the theater. To be fair, it was the afternoon, but I still doubt this one is going anywhere.

I watched MONK while I ate lunch. After thoroughly enjoying last week's "alien" episode, I didn't much like this week's with Monk as a twin of a famous hit man. Sure, it gave the star a chance to play a different character (kind of), but the mystery was pretty feeble and there wasn't much fun there.

I spent the next 190 minutes this afternoon with the third (and thankfully) last part of THE HUMAN CONDITION. It has been an interesting saga, but I rather regret it devolved into extreme melodrama by the last half hour. I kind of lost patience with it near the end going to its extremes and stretching everything out to agonizing lengths.

We are the proud owners of two new small wing chairs. As I have mentioned in earlier posts, we were looking for something to replace the old couch. We looked at J.C. Penney's on line, Pottery Barn, West Elm, The Door Store, Macy's and Housing Works (used). We found some things we liked but nothing jumped out. I saw chairs in the window at Pier One earlier in the week so we walked over today (a block away). Lo and behold, they had a very nice small wing chair (we're small people, we need small chairs). We sat and liked and made measurements and thought and ate lunch (pizza), came home, thought some more and decided. We bought them at 2pm and they were delivered at 3:30!

I was watching the Blu Ray Disc of TWILIGHT.  I have not read the books....but it sure was a slow boat to China.  Nothing much appealing to me about any of the actors.  Kind of a by the numbers thing.....I might watch the rest of it someday....when I have nothing else to do.  I gather it pleased the fans and I am happy for them -

I then made the mistake of starting 10,000 B.C. in Blu Ray....another movie I will probably never finish watching.

So...

I went to church this morning with my parents. We went to the 8:30am service.  Surprisingly, I was quite awake for the service.  We usually go to the later service, but since we had to drive back up to Fairfax this morning, well...

Two things I noticed about this particular church:

-They actually have a "late seating break" for, well, the latecomers.  It happens right before the Litrugy of the Word starts.  The ushers help and guide people into their seats, and then once the head usher give the signal, the Mass continues.

-Whoever programmed the music for this morning's service made sure to include a little bit of everything: traditional hymns, modern "folk" tunes, traditional hymns with a non-traditional accompaniment/rhythmic underlay, even an African-influenced "Alleluia".  The percussionist, consequently, was able to use his full battery (get it?) of "toys".  Including a djembe - which happened to be placed right next to a microphone.  At first I thought he was playing with a baby rattle. ;)

-Oh, and I believe the responsorial psalm should have been transposed down a key. Or two. Or three. ::)

Somehow I got hooked into reading a thread about Mary Martin and several people (as Ethel Merman) posted the punch line to story I heard a while back about Ethel Merman and Mary Martin. I read through the whole thread hoping that someone would post the whole story, but no one did.

I haven't caught up.  Steve is much worse than I thought he would be.  I'll be surprised if he makes it to Friday when I go back up there. 

Today was a disaster.  When I first arrived Squeaker the cat greeted me as always and went back to the bedroom.   A little while later Gretch went back to make the bed and found Squeaker dead on the bed.  He hadn't made a noise, nothing, he just died.  He was only 10 years old.  So after much distress and stressing over whether to tell Steve (he was very close to the cat but we don't think he'll notice, he doesn't really know what's going on) we all decided not to tell him.

They had planned to just take Squeak to the vet Monday to have him cremated, but I knew that was done at the Humane Society there.  I contacted the nearest Humane Society that is about 20-25 miles from there. We found out they were open today and then not again until Thursday!  So, a couple hours after he died,  Gretch said goodbye to him, and I took Squeaker to the Humane Society.  She'll get his ashes later this week.

It wasn't a day for comic relief.  I put the geyser stuff in my parents' garage and will do it next weekend

After church, we headed back to my parents' house, packed up my stuff, and then hopped back on I-95 to head back up to Fairfax.

We ended up meeting up with my brother's former in-laws for lunch - along with my brother and his daughter.  We were also able to stop by my other brother's place to check in on him and his kids. So, all in all, it was a very family-filled and hug-filled day.

It has been an interesting saga, but I rather regret it devolved into extreme melodrama by the last half hour.

I also finally met the new husband and son of my brother's ex-wife.  -They're still really good friends, my brother and his ex, that is.  Mason, who is two-years old, is a cutie!  And, Chris, the husband, is a handsome-y.  ;)

*I also re-met my brother's ex-wife's cousin, Ryan.  Ryan lives in Richmond, and we met about eight years ago.  He was one of those "different" kids in high school.  He came up to DC one time to see a show I was playing, and loved it.  Once he got to college - and away from home - he found and was allowed to be himself, and bloomed.  He managed to turn his love of all things Disney into a position with Radio Disney while he was still in college. -Consequently, whenever any of the Disney tween acts (Miley Cyrus, The Jonas Brothers, Demi Lovato) play in DC, he's able to pass on VIP passes on to his cousins.  He also, apparently, has a semi-famous drag alter-ego with an international(!) fan base.  It was actually kind of cool being able to "talk gay" with him today. ;)

I haven't caught up.  Steve is much worse than I thought he would be.  I'll be surprised if he makes it to Friday when I go back up there. 

Today was a disaster.  When I first arrived Squeaker the cat greeted me as always and went back to the bedroom.   A little while later Gretch went back to make the bed and found Squeaker dead on the bed.  He hadn't made a noise, nothing, he just died.  He was only 10 years old.  So after much distress and stressing over whether to tell Steve (he was very close to the cat but we don't think he'll notice, he doesn't really know what's going on) we all decided not to tell him.

They had planned to just take Squeak to the vet Monday to have him cremated, but I knew that was done at the Humane Society there.  I contacted the nearest Humane Society that is about 20-25 miles from there. We found out they were open today and then not again until Thursday!  So, a couple hours after he died,  Gretch said goodbye to him, and I took Squeaker to the Humane Society.  She'll get his ashes later this week.

It wasn't a day for comic relief.  I put the geyser stuff in my parents' garage and will do it next weekend



Oh, Cilla, I am so sorry.

I was watching the Blu Ray Disc of TWILIGHT.  I have not read the books....but it sure was a slow boat to China.  Nothing much appealing to me about any of the actors.  Kind of a by the numbers thing.....I might watch the rest of it someday....when I have nothing else to do.  I gather it pleased the fans and I am happy for them -

I don't know that it pleased the fans.

I know i am a big fan of the books and i only thought the movie was okay. There was so much more they could have done IMO.

HOWEVER a lot of the fans are kids. My niece for example is 14 and she has read the books. And her and her little friends love the actors and the movie (i did not like most of the casting).

Hi. And i'm still starving and did not do any exercise today.

I can't figure out if my body has just not caught up on eating. But i am confused.

When i've been hungry i've eaten (except not after 7pm). And i go to sleep hungry and wake up hungry. It is definitely peculiar!

My sister took my niece to the circus today while my mom and i watched the baby.

They were gone 4 1/2 hours. And by the end i was sitting outside with her on my lap waiting for her meal truck to arrive.

She was so hungry. And she does not like her bottle. Although i think it helped a bit.

Poor kid sitting outside waiting for mommy to feed her. But she was happy out there. She likes being outside.

Managed to finish GOTTERDAMMERUNG.  Oy and vey, and also vey and oy.  Also did my next to last review for DVDTalk today, a completely charming film I especially recommend to BK, as I think it may remind him quite a bit of the Kritzer books.  It's a British film, directed by Paul Weiland, called "66" (or alternatively "Sixty Six," and no, I'm not kidding), starring Helena Bonham Carter.  She plays the mother of a little boy who has the misfortune to have his Bar Mitzvah on the day in 1966 that England for the one and only time made the World Cup Finals in soccer.

I then made the mistake of starting 10,000 B.C. in Blu Ray....another movie I will probably never finish watching.

I really never had any interest in either one of those, and after reading your comments, it seems my instincts were right. I might give TWILIGHT a try once it shows up on paycable, but definitely won't think about a Blu-ray rental or purchase unless I like what I see on cable.

I spent the next 190 minutes this afternoon with the third (and thankfully) last part of THE HUMAN CONDITION. It has been an interesting saga, but I rather regret it devolved into extreme melodrama by the last half hour. I kind of lost patience with it near the end going to its extremes and stretching everything out to agonizing lengths.

I'll trade you THE HUMAN CONDITION for the Staatskapelle Weimar RING CYCLE any day of the week.  :)

No thanks. I did not find my time wasted in the least. I just wish the last half hour had been up to the quality of the rest of the work.

When I went back down, I watched the bonus features on disc four in THE HUMAN CONDITION set. Not very many frankly. I did enjoy seeing the extremely handsome leading man now and comparing the way he looked then to now. He's aged very well.

My arm started aching a bit tonight, so I once again sought out a comfort film, one seen many times but is pure pleasure in the viewing.

He doesn't seem to be in any pain at all. I'm sure he has powerful pain meds, I didn't ask, so I'm only assuming.  Hospice is supposedly involved but I didn't see anyone there and no one talked about that either. Steve was sitting in his chair. He woke up a couple times while I was there and made a little sense.  He greeted me when I arrived and spoke to his sister a little bit, but he mostly just slept.  I looked up liver failure (his liver is full of cancer) and he's got most of the symptoms.

Except for the Jason shtick (which I'll never tire of), I found that most of the humor in this particular episode was quite forced.  With this strain of humor, I won't believe Alan Ball any longer when he says that Bubba, one of Charlaine Harris' best characters in the novels, doesn't fit into the world of TRUE BLOOD.

Finished with my viewing - completed Lost, Season Five, watched the rest of disc two of Adam 12 (with one great episode mostly shot at about the mile and a half point of my long jog - what fun to see what was there then), and then proofed the booklet of our new release (needs some fixes, which I'll do with Doug later tonight), wrote the blurb, and will probably put it up at midnight here for advance preorder.  It's such a fun release, and it's such a pleasure to be able to do something by this composer, who is one of my favorites - and, as it turns out, it will not be the only thing we're doing by him.

Now that Craig & Ioana have cable & internet connections we were able to Skype with them.   The movers were very good and except for the rain all went well.  A friend of Craig’s helped with the unloading.  They like the new place & have a quiet spot in the building complex with a nice view.  Craig already registered his car & is busy doing all the things one does after moving to a new state. 

Most of all they needs jobs.

Please send vibes for Craig to quickly find a job he wants, not one he has to take!

Sam - One critic even said it's rarely performed because of the intense subject matter, but it's probably a commitment needed by an actor beyond what's normal for a role. plus the one actor often has to have a certain status  to get an audience.  Here's the best list i could find:


La Jolla Playhouse in summer 2009,
McCarter Theater in fall 2008,
Williamstown Theatre Festival in summer 2007 - the above starring B.D. Wong and directed by Roger Rees;
Playwrights Horizons starring David Rounds and directed by Ben Levit;
Hartford Stage starring Joel Grey and directed by Graciela Daniele;
Edinburgh Festival;  transferred to King's Head Theatre in London
Philadelphia's Prince Music Theater - also B.D. Wong
Chicago's St. Nicholas Theater - also David Rounds
Vancouver, Canada
Vancouver, WA just outside Portland, Oregon - Arts Equity, summer 2006, brought back for another slot at the theater in fall/winter 2006
