Morning all. Back to work this morning after MLK Day.

I'm oatmealing and coffeeing at the moment. I must get to the Post Office sometime today.

We went grocery shopping yesterday so now the house is full of good things to eat like fish and turkey breasts and strawberries and salad and carrots and grape tomatoes and oatmeal and dried fruit and dried nuts and wild rice and coffee and tea and hearty brown bread and mini whole wheat bagels and bananas, apples and clementines and lots more. We won't have to go shopping for a month!

I have a follow-up doctor's appointment today, after which I'm going to take some boxes to the booksale site that I really, really want out of my car.  This stuff was donated by someone who does animal rescue and the boxes are covered in cat hair - AH-CHOOO!  I'll probably stay to help sort and price books, go out to lunch with my friends, and then go to my mom's to take some empty boxes to the trash for her.

I've just been catching up on people's favorite toys from youth (yesterday's TOD). I know i also had an easy bake oven, and lite brite.

The interesting thing when you have kids in your life now is seeing which toys lasted.  My niece is too young for an easy bake oven (although they still make them). But she has lite brite.

And now i even get to color again.  I'm much better at it now! :)

A little something dedicated to the full-body scanners at airports AND to the upcoming FRANK SINATRA/TWYLA THARP musical.

Here's the link to FLY ME IN THE NUDE, parody of FLY ME TO THE MOON, and it is (to my knowledge) the first YouTube parody video meant to honor the upcoming debut of the Twyla Tharp musical based on Frank Sinatra's songs.  The video has a twist of the airline security scanners that reportedly reveal every intimate detail of the passenger's body.

It's only about two minutes.  And despite its title, it's totally suitable for all ages! 

If you enjoy it, please pass the link along to others.

Wow--that was fast. Seems like we were discussing this over dinner only last week! (I got the full body scan on my way to NY.)

I would love to send this to the head of the Sinatra foundation--I think he'd get a kick out of it and it promotes the show. But I'll wait for the go-ahead first.

I recall seeing Sterling Holloway star in a stage production of WHO WAS THAT LADY? at Seattle's Cirque Playhouse back in the late 1950s. 

That production was much funnier than the movie, probably because Sterling never stuck to the script.

Dean Martin:

SOME CAME RUNNING
ROBIN AND THE SEVEN HOODS

I wish I could add BELLS ARE RINGING. He's absolutely perfectly cast, and his voice is just wonderful in the singing. But in the actual film, he's BARELY trying at all. In the "I Met a Girl" number, he doesn't even bother to open his mouth to lip-synch during the playback. (He actually appears to be drunk while fighting his way through those crowds.)

I know there are a lot of Jerry Lewis fans on the site, but Martin is the only reason I can make it through the Martin & Lewis comedies now. I just find Jerry so oppressively "on" all the time, and I lose patience with his characters within ten minutes of his first appearance in those movies.

Today I'm starting of the Roberto Rossellini WAR TRILOGY from Criterion, and the first one up is the most famous: ROME OPEN CITY which I haven't seen in over 30 years. I remember very little about it, so I'm looking forward to seeing it again. The three films are on separate discs and are all loaded with bonus features, so I'll be doing one disc a day to work my way through everything.

TV Note:

WHITE COLLAR returns tonight with new episodes at 10 p.m. on USA. This is not a one-time move to Tuesdays but appears to be permanent (at least for the rest of its first season). Of course, if the ratings tank, I guess USA may move it back to Friday, but we will have to wait and see about that.

SOUTHLAND airs its second episode tonight on TNT at 10.

ABC also has new episodes of SCRUBS and BETTER OFF TED at 9 and 9:30.

Those who might want to try out Fox's new HUMAN TARGET show with Mark Valley will find the pilot being repeated tonight at 9 on Fox. A new episode airs tomorrow night in its regular spot at 9 on Fox.

DR MattH - I have copies of the two previous editions.  As much as I appreciate the annotated index of shows and show tunes, what I find most valuable are the essays and the brief bio/profiles of the composers.

And since I just played an event for it... If you don't already "collect" them, are you interested in the latest edition of "Theatre World" (http://www.amazon.com/Theatre-World-2008-2009-Complete-American/dp/1423473698/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1263915016&sr=1-1)?  In general, the pictures(!) in "Theatre World" are more than worth the price of the tome.

Re: THE VIKINGS

Curtis' first scene was cut from the movie after its initial release, and (apparently) that's the only version of the movie that still exists.

I recall seeing the movie first run at the Coliseum Theater in Seattle.  In that screening, there definitely was an initial scene between Curtis and Kirk Douglas that was missing when I saw it later on TV and the scene did not reappear when the movie went to home video.

If you look at the movie as it now stands, the first time that Douglas encounters Curtis, Kirk's opening line is "You again!"

Obviously, something has been cut.

Re: the Golden Globes ceremony Sunday:

I was delighted by a number of the winners, including Meryl Streep, Jeff Bridges, Drew Barrymore and Michael Giacchino.

I thought the taste levels were breached at various points, primarily in Gervais' tasteless opening monologue, and in subsequent comments from Gervais and one or two presenters.

And I give a rat's ass in hell whether or not James Cameron had to "pee" or whether he subsequently relieved himself (or not).

The most boring acceptance speech, I'm sorry to say, came from Christoph Waltz, whose droning expostulations about Tarantino's hiring of him were vomit-inducing for me.  Seriously...

More surgery vibes for DR derBrucer.

Tony Curtis: Some Like It Hot, Sweet Smell of Success, Great Race

Dean Martin: Rio Bravo

BK, take a train ride some place or a ride out in the country and get some new scenery. It will help with the exhaustion. It's helping me.

Re: Martin, I really like THE YOUNG LIONS.

Dean Martin surprised me regularly...and almost always when he was away from other Rat Packers.

I think he is delightful in "Bells Are Ringing"....and superb in "Toys in the Attic."  I enjoy, thoroughly, his "western" performances, too.

I forgot about TOYS IN THE ATTIC--I like Martin a lot in that one too.

I need to add CAREER to my "Must See" list...

Druxy, I have the film; haven't seen it for awhile (I actually have three different posters of this movie on the wall of my TV room...a Polish, Italian, and American).  My recollection is that Tony is a slave who has been secretly training a hawk.  When his hawk snatches prey from Douglas' hawk, Douglas tries to take tony's Hawk.  Tony has the hawk attack and it takes Douglas' eye out.

That is Curtis' first scene in the "current" version of the movie, but he had another scene earlier, as (I believe) he was getting off one of the boats and he had an exchange with Douglas.

Douglas' first line in the version you have certainly indicates that there was an earlier scene between them.

I have no idea why it was cut.

A faithless lover's kiss is written on the wind
A night of stolen bliss is written on the wind
Just like the tide leaves
Our dreams we've calmly thrown away
Now they've flown away

The promises we made are whispers in the breeze
They echo and they fade just like our memories
Though you are gone from me
We never can really be apart
What's written on the wind
Is written in my heart

Though you are gone from me
We never can really be apart
What's written on the wind
Is written in my heart

A little something dedicated to the full-body scanners at airports AND to the upcoming FRANK SINATRA/TWYLA THARP musical.

Here's the link to FLY ME IN THE NUDE, parody of FLY ME TO THE MOON, and it is (to my knowledge) the first YouTube parody video meant to honor the upcoming debut of the Twyla Tharp musical based on Frank Sinatra's songs.  The video has a twist of the airline security scanners that reportedly reveal every intimate detail of the passenger's body.

It's only about two minutes.  And despite its title, it's totally suitable for all ages! 

If you enjoy it, please pass the link along to others.

When I got in, I immediately watched ROME OPEN CITY. This is often stated as being one of the first of the neorealist Italian films, but apart from some street scenes with children and the occupying German soldiers, this is mostly a studio-bound film shot with professional actors.

It's very good, but I still find neorealist films like De Sica's SHOESHINE and BICYCLES THIEVES much truer to the neorealist style and genuinely moving with their amateurs in the leading roles. And Magnani is really missed once she's gone after the first half of the movie.

Well.....watching all of these movies today, I have to say that Boris Sagal directed Elvis in what is a much better movie than I remembered it to be....GIRL HAPPY.

This is Elvis' first outing with Shelley Fabares, and it includes Nita Talbot, Gary Crosby, Jimmy Hawkins, and Mary Ann Mobley among others.  There are the usual misunderstandings, fights, and songs....but everybody is having a good time, and the songs are among the better ones in the mid-60's Elvis movie library.

Fabares even gets into the act dancing Ann-Margret like to "Meanest Girl in Town" (I don't think A-M would lose any sleep over the routine).

Nice job, everybody, and kind of a rediscovery for me GIRL HAPPY.....I know I saw it at the drive in!

Yesterday, I watched a motion picture entitled "My Bill" starring Kay Francis.  She had four children, three of whom were poster children for devil seed. 

The youngest was played by Dickie Moore.  He was terrific and was, for all intents and purposes, the real star of the movie.  He and Kay Francis worked well together.  Bonita Granville was in the film, but she wasn't particularly impressive or pleasant.


Earlier, I watched Kay Francis and Errol Flynn in "Another Dawn".  A rather enjoyable film for what it was...about a triangle between Francis and her husband (Ian Hunter)_ and Francis and Flynn (her husband's second in command and best friend).  It was all noble and about personal sacrifice and respect and love...and it was all decked out with a sumptuous Erich Wolfgang Korngold score.  Very beautiful love theme graced this film.

I like Kay Francis.  Wish her films had been better than they were.

I know, I know, who is this Miss Karen person posting gratuitous nothings ... But I have a good excuse this time for my E and T behavior.  Caught the flu (I think from one of the little kids I costumed for our holiday show).  Right before Christmas and just now feel almost human again. Never been that sick ...

I always wanted that big 64-crayon box that the other kids had. So many colors to choose from! And it had a crayon sharpener built in!

Me too!  My parents always thought that 48 was more than I needed, but would give in and let me get that...64? nope.  I actually bought one the other day. I was going to have crayons at the office but have been convinced that I should do puzzles instead.  So, I have some crayons and coloring books...lol.  One of these days I may just have to sit and color

Holy moley on rye.  I had a visit from a dealer bringing me some CDs.  He and his partner were sitting at my dining room table.  The table, which is round and marble sits on a pedestal.  The one guy got up, pressing down on his side of the table.  The entire third of the opposite side of the table broke off and shattered.   I think at some point it had gotten "scored" or damaged, but boy was it shocking.  I got the mess cleaned up and thankfully it didn't do any damage, but now I've got to go find another dining table asap, since I do all the Kritzerland shipping on it and there's not enough room now.  I may go over to Restoration Hardware in Sherman Oaks, to see what they have that's reasonably priced.

I went to the grocery store this noon and it was already packed full of people getting supplies for the ice storm.  I still laugh at the way we all run to stock up on supplies like we will be trapped for weeks.  It may be a day or so if it's really bad, but that's not how people stock up.   Of course I was there doing the same thing.  I am really hoping that we don't lose power.

Well.....watching all of these movies today, I have to say that Boris Sagal directed Elvis in what is a much better movie than I remembered it to be....GIRL HAPPY.

This is Elvis' first outing with Shelley Fabares, and it includes Nita Talbot, Gary Crosby, Jimmy Hawkins, and Mary Ann Mobley among others.  There are the usual misunderstandings, fights, and songs....but everybody is having a good time, and the songs are among the better ones in the mid-60's Elvis movie library.

Fabares even gets into the act dancing Ann-Margret like to "Meanest Girl in Town" (I don't think A-M would lose any sleep over the routine).

Nice job, everybody, and kind of a rediscovery for me GIRL HAPPY.....I know I saw it at the drive in!

I saw a little bit of it on TCM-HD, and it looked fabulous. The color was super-saturated.
Title: Re: WRITTEN ON THE WIND
Post by: Matt H. on January 19, 2010, 07:14:42 PM
I had an nice evening of viewing: part work and part fun.

I began by watching the four lengthy bonus features on the ROME OPEN CITY DVD. They were all interesting features, but one was a video interview with a Rossellini scholar who discussed Roberto's use of locations in the three movies in the set. The problem was that I've never seen the other two, and he gave major plot points about the films away including the ending of the third one. No big deal; I'm not one to get freaked out by spoilers, but I have to think that was a poor idea. Of course, I'll be sure to alert readers about this when I write up the bonus features.
Title: Re: WRITTEN ON THE WIND
Post by: Matt H. on January 19, 2010, 07:19:30 PM
After I finished my work project for the day, I watched last night's CASTLE. A good episode and a nifty mystery, but I was not surprised by the assassin's identity, not because of the clue slipped into the script but

















because the guilty party didn't bother to give any description at all of the person the police were supposed to meet for the payoff. They went in blind not knowing what he looked like which, for me at least, would not be something I'd let an informer do and give him immunity for. It just didn't make sense unless he didn't want to describe himself.

I skimmed through today's soaps. ONE LIFE TO LIVE really got to Fish's potential fathering much quicker than I would have ever thought they would do, but I'm so glad they did it this way and not having Kyle sneaking around trying to get DNA samples to check against hospital records to determine paternity before he told Oliver what was happening. Having everything above board was much, much better, especially for their future relationship.
Title: Re: WRITTEN ON THE WIND
Post by: Matt H. on January 19, 2010, 07:22:03 PM
Then I skimmed through AS THE WORLD TURNS. Luke and Noah were on today, too, along with the doctor who's going to do Noah's surgery. Right now, the doctor despises Luke. I suspect that's going to change.

I had the table for about twelve years.  I think in one of the moves the movers must have cracked that side of the table - a hairline crack you could see, but I didn't think there was any danger.  Anyway, I'm back and I bought a new black round wood table - simple and elegant - not as elegant as the marble, but that's fine.  This one is sturdy and it's attached to a very sturdy pedestal.  The pedestal on my old table was way too small and insubstantial and has always been a problem.  New table will be here in a week or so.  I first went to Restoration Hardware - they had one round table - I liked it fine but man was it expensive.  So, I told them I'd think about it.  Then on the way home I passed by a really nice furniture place on Ventura Blvd.   They were still open, so I went in - and there was this black table.  It was almost the exact same price as the other table with one key difference - this one was on sale at 50% off.  I couldn't pass that up and bought it.

I'll be heading back to the hospital tomorrow morning.

I always wanted that big 64-crayon box that the other kids had. So many colors to choose from! And it had a crayon sharpener built in!

Me too!  My parents always thought that 48 was more than I needed, but would give in and let me get that...64? nope.  I actually bought one the other day. I was going to have crayons at the office but have been convinced that I should do puzzles instead.  So, I have some crayons and coloring books...lol.  One of these days I may just have to sit and color

I always wanted that, too. I mentioned it to Greg once, and the following Christmas...

Then we ended up giving it to my godson. It's the thought that counts!

Holy moley on rye.  I had a visit from a dealer bringing me some CDs.  He and his partner were sitting at my dining room table.  The table, which is round and marble sits on a pedestal.  The one guy got up, pressing down on his side of the table.  The entire third of the opposite side of the table broke off and shattered.   I think at some point it had gotten "scored" or damaged, but boy was it shocking.  I got the mess cleaned up and thankfully it didn't do any damage, but now I've got to go find another dining table asap, since I do all the Kritzerland shipping on it and there's not enough room now.  I may go over to Restoration Hardware in Sherman Oaks, to see what they have that's reasonably priced.

And, as I thought, I guess you found out that "reasonably priced" doesn't really exist at Restoration Hardware. ;)

Think I'll head upstairs.  I need to get up in the morning and do a lot of work, even if I have to do it here instead of at the office

My parents always bought the Crayola 64 box.  More crayons = less fights between me and my three brothers.

*And I even recall getting the special 96-box too!

DR Cillaliz - Any idea of how many school (elementary and high school) days have been lost so far in your area?  -And just how many they build into the school calendar?

OH! Today Edith came in and told me that some of the skywalkers (the regulars who hang out on the skywalk) were on Maury Povich on one of those Who's the daddy shows.   She saw the girl and asked her if she had been on TV, she said yes and when Edith asked what show she said "Maury Povich"  she said they paid their air fare and hotel but nothing else.  She said she was humiliated.  Well duh, she had narrowed it down to 5 possible men. They tested 3 and all were not the father.  It was really a sad story, but was also very odd and kind of funny when you see people loitering around all day and then there they are on Maury. Since I don't watch I had to see it on Youtube.  I'm surprised that Ruth gave Edith a link on how to get to it.  Of course, i also don't understand how anyone could go on those shows

Here's the link.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rzhIRwnq-uE It's a sad story, but one of the guys is a security guard who was fired.  Part of his job was walking by our old office many times a day.

Not really sure.  The big Christmas blizzard happened while they were on break.  We had snow earlier in December and the last blizzard was right after they went back to school.  I'm not sure how many days they build into the school year, but they always make some allowances for the weather. Perhaps if I had kids I'd pay more attention to it ;)

No cancellations for tomorrow yet, but the freezing rain isn't too far south of here and it's heading this way, so I'm sure there will be by morning.  We're used to snow, but we're really not used to ice. When we have ice storms, they are usually really bad news. I'm just hoping the powerlines don't go down. That's when it really gets nasty

Just looked online.  I only see 2 snow make-up days on the calendar.  it has to be really bad for Sioux city to cancel and they have cancelled a couple times, at least.   They'll just have to extend the school year if they don't have enough days

I thought so, it's the first thing I thought of when I read "it's pouring" and I've been gone for about 17 years now

Earlier this evening, I attended a duo vocal recital that was presented at Carnegie Hall as part of the Marilyn Horne Foundation's "The Song Continues..." series.  On tonight's bill was a soprano and a baritone, Nadine Sierra and Edward Parks (http://www.carnegiehall.org/article/box_office/events/evt_12925.html?selecteddate=01192010).  Both had very good voices, and presented some varied material.  It was a nice recital, and only a $5 ticket to boot!

*The biggest highlight of the recital for me was when Marilyn Horne came out on stage at the beginning of the recital to introduce the singers.  :)

I finished The Great Imposter and just wrote one additional paragraph - I'd left out the little story of Cindy's falling in love with the line "stunk co*k" and how she kept adding it into every line of hers in that scene.
