Good morning, all! Last night at 2:45 am, during a noisy round of sex gong on above me, I taped a note to the door of the tenant in 4C: "you need a heavy duty bed for sex - the squeaking is driving me crazy." This will either piss him off or initiate some changes, but something has to be done: the lack of sleep is killing me.

Today, I have some things to accomplish at Toyland and an evening of no plans. Hopefully, I can catch up on sleep and perhaps sleep late tomorrow morning.

Greetings from snowy Northern Virginia!  It's hard to tell how much snow there is from a 3rd floor window, but I'm guessing 15 inches.  And 8 to 10 more are expected today.   And here I thought I left the big snowstorms behind when I moved from Buffalo!

I wish they'd tried to sell it to PBS for a "Great Performances" broadcast. There were several missed opportunities to keep the show alive. I like the CD, too, and I am grateful it was made.

We've had no snow yet, so I'm wondering if it's passed us over.

The only thing that makes me crazy in ALL I DESIRE, is that Barbara sees her daughter Lori Nelson (who was married at one time to Johnny Mann....of the Johnny Mann Singers) in a high school play and tells her that she is so good she should go to New York to be on the stage.

Sirk makes most of the scenes from the play that we see silent and in pantomime as Barbara and others beam in the audience.  He had Lori's number - and it was never sung by the Johnny Mann Singers.

Many years ago, I had the pleasure of chatting with Michael Caine in a green room.  The subject turned to the differences between the United States and the UK, and I'll never forget something he said (paraphrasing):

"In the United States, when a working man sees somebody driving a Rolls Royce, the usual reaction is 'I'm going to work hard, and someday I'll be driving one of those.'

"However, in the UK, the working man says, 'We're going to tax that rich s.o.b. out of that car, so that he has drive an old clunker just like us.'"

It was really good. The play fluctuates between 1951 and 1953, and it's quite moving. The cast is the two parents, the three sons, and the girl who loves the eldest son. The scene changes were covered by projections of newsreels from the time and popular songs. Given the space, the direction was really fluid and so good that you didn't notice it.

I really do not like him in THE CIDER HOUSE RULES despite his Academy Award. I think his accent is very weak, and his performance to me is not up to par. Delroy Lindo in the film is much more dynamic and impressive. I would have given HIM the Oscar and not even nominated Caine.

We, too, just watched GAMBIT a couple of days ago.  I had never seen it past the "twist" section of the first half hour and it was fun to finally see the whole thing.  I did of course guess the final little joke well before it arrived.  I agree about Neame--a highly underrated director.  I still love his SCROOGE best out of all the CHRISTMAS CAROL adaptations.

Well the store will open at 11 a.m. today and close if no one comes around....but my sister told me to just stay home.  So I did.

I cleared my driveway....which wasn't too bad until I got to the street where the snow plow had gone by several times and dumped a lot of HEAVY DIRTY snow there.....I had to shovel about half the street in front of my driveway too.

He also helped keep the disaster picture THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE afloat and interesting. It still ranks as my favorite of those disaster epics of the 1970s.

He says Grant replied softly, "I know."

I fondly remember seeing Mr. Grant at Dodger games where he'd sit in the dugout with Tommy Lasorda.

A friend of mine once ran into him on a studio backlot and said, "Mr. Grant, I just want you to know how much watching your movies have given me."  Grant replied:  "You must stay up very late."

Today's wonderful email department:

Greetings,
 
Please excuse me for all the inconveniences my mail could cause you. I have the pleasure to expose to you my predicaments.  Please even if we never knew before, I believe firmly that on the basis of the right of humanitarian assistance that a real confidence and love can arise from our communication. I was told by the doctor few days ago that my liver was damaged beyond control as a result of poisonous food my step mother served me and can only live for some months.
 
I believe my step mother out of her selfish greed wanted me dead by all means because she did not have a child for my late father and that was why he willed his deposited treasures to me as the only daughter.
 
Because of her plight, I have decided to donate a reasonable part of this treasure to churches, mosques and charitable organizations. The reason is that my late father never wanted me to live in Africa that was why he instructed them never to release this treasure to me here.
 
As soon as I receive your response I will explain further and send you my personal documents legalizing the treasures; on the other hand if I don't hear from you within two or three days, I will be left with no option than to look for another person who is willing to execute my wish.
 
Remain blessed as I wish you accomplish my wish. Pray for me always.
 
Sincerely,
 
Janet Cohen

All of the punctures in my arms to draw blood yesterday have turned into ugly bruises.

When I had my Cardiac Cath, the team had a grand time exploring for veins that would work. After the procedure (which included dosing with anti-coagulants) I was resting on a gurney and attempted to sit up to adjust my position. In the process I pulled off a whole stream of bandages that ran down my arm; this resulted an a rather spectcular display of spouting streams of life force - it looked like my arm had been run over by a combine.

The good news was that I was so distracted by the vein-fumbling that I never noticed the actual catheterization.

I watched BURN NOTICE while I ate cooked and lunch. Good, fun caper this week, the story arc caper was OK (not much to it), and Sharon Gless's mother was her usual whiny, annoying self.

Looks like next week Michael's brother returns which I'm looking forward to. I always enjoy seeing him and Michael working together.

Then I watched 4 1/2 episodes of MARY MOORE. In these, Edie got remarried, Mary moved to her new apartment, and priest almost fell in love with her, and Murray actually did. The fifth episode will find Ted being offered a job as a game show host. Can't wait for Lou's hilarious lecture to him about being the M.C. of a QUIZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ Show.

The battle has begun between apartments 3C and 4C, but i hope we can reach a peaceful settlement. While I was at Toyland, I received an email from him and I sent him an email back explaining how I could ear everything above me after midnight. When I got home, I went to up make peace but he had stepped out. I have no idea when he will return,probably long after I've gone to bed, so I will try and clear this whole thing up tomorrow.

At Toyland, I finally heard "Evaline McCook," since I had  meeting there to run through all the Herbert songs I collected at the LoC. It's really quite a charming song.

Amy, Amy, Amy, Beverley played your Paul Robeson song request this afternoon! I don't know if you were listening (she didn't play any review of mine) but she was mentioning Mr. Robeson and then played something and said after that it was by your request.

The show will be on at 4pm (Eastern Standard Time) tomorrow if you want to give a listen. It happens around 45 minutes (maybe a bit later) into the show. If you can't listed tomorrow, you know how Listen Again on the BBC iPlayer works so you will have a week to listen.

I can't wait to watch the Super Bowl on Sunday, and all the hype that goes along with it.  It is one of the big television events that I watch faithfully every year.  The others are probaly The Oscars and The Tony Awards.


Thereby throwing off Nielsen demographic sampling for generations. 


I don't get it? ???

I would say very few people would make a trifecta out of the Super Bowl, the Oscars and the Tonys.

I don't know about this - I know quite a few people who like all 3 including me!

I just spent about 1 1/2 hours prepping my food for tomorrow's SUPER BOWL party. The sad part is that i didn't even start my cheesecake. Although i did make the reese's peanut buttercups and the fudge sauce. I don't think it will take that much time to make the pie crust and actual cheesecake tomorrow.

Although one thing i found weird (which i had not noticed) was that it said to use an 8inch pan (the name has momentarily escaped me - the ones where the sides come off). This seems so small. But i guess the worst case scenario is it will be very tall (or i'll have extra filling).
Title: Re: GOOD FOR WHAT AILS YOU

Springform. That's the name of the pan i was looking for!
Title: Re: GOOD FOR WHAT AILS YOU
Post by: JoseSPiano on February 06, 2010, 06:51:08 PM
DR Jennifer - An 8" Springform pan is a standard-sized pan. -And, "tall" cheesecakes are also sort of the norm in some circles, regions, restaurants.
Title: Re: GOOD FOR WHAT AILS YOU
Post by: Jane on February 06, 2010, 07:03:14 PM
I measured all 3 of my springform pans, between 6 1/2 to 9 inches.  8 inches is a good size.

I watched this week's WHITE COLLAR. I love this show!

After a fine pilot episode, the show then went through a couple of weeks of shaky delivery. I think now the show is more firmly sure of what it wants to be and is turning out really entertaining episodes. It is now one of my favorites as well.

Post by: Matt H. on February 06, 2010, 07:21:41 PM
I have watched a total of sixteen MARY TYLER MOORE episodes today (The first two discs of a three disc set). The show is just as funny as I remembered it, and in the first 16, there isn't a dud in the bunch. Yep, this was the season of "Chuckles Bites the Dust," Mary becoming heavily involved with Ted Bessell, Murray becoming Sue Ann's producer for an episode (with Sue Ann ending up in a wedding cake), Ted and Georgette's hasty wedding, Sue Ann's first date with Lou, and the first appearance of Eileen Heckart as Mary's Aunt Flo. (She makes a second appearance on the third disc which I'll watch tomorrow).
Title: Re: GOOD FOR WHAT AILS YOU
Post by: Matt H. on February 06, 2010, 07:23:59 PM
This leaves me with eight episodes to watch tomorrow. I hope to finish them by the end of the afternoon (there are no bonus features on the discs). Then I can watch THE MUSIC MAN tomorrow evening. I should have time to watch something else as well.
Title: Re: GOOD FOR WHAT AILS YOU
Post by: Matt H. on February 06, 2010, 07:25:28 PM
I wish I could say the quality is superb on MARY, but it isn't. The transfers are OK. I assume a lot of softness in close-ups was soft focus photography (though it has been done for some of the men as well as for the women). And yet other close-ups are not in soft focus. Very inconsistent.

We just used Netflix's instant streaming feature to watch a straight to video knockoff that my sister in law not only was production manager for, she also assistant directed, and because someone didn't show one day, had a bit part in!  Luckily the bit came early in the film so we weren't obliged to watch the whole thing; the film was not exactly a masterpiece.  ;)

Apparently my nieces and nephew who live in Fairfax are already sick of all the snow... And so are my brothers.  ;)

Well, we've had our first learning experience with YouTube.  I compressed the video with WMV and it took forever to get on the computer, but then uploaded relatively quickly to YouTube.  However, the audio quality was horrible, like something in an echo chamber with a chorus effect.  So we deleted that and I recompressed using the MPEG codec which transferred to my computer within seconds.  However, this one is going to take close to an hour and a half to upload to YouTube.  Oy.
