Thanks all for the suggestions for the glasses....

DR CP - if he had dropped the RIGHT glass, it would not have broken.  I bought HEAVY whiskey on the rocks glasses, that are very small and witha double bottom - and the rug is double padded underneath where the glass falls.  It was the stemmed glass itself AND CHARLES that created the problem.....wrong glass.....

Good morning, all! This morning, I have to send a copy of my outstanding invoice with the note "if you haven't paid this, please do so" because I really want to get this dental problem aolved ASAP. The good news is that a lot of the swelling in my cheek is gone and the abscess is diminshing. The bad news is I wanted to get this treatment at the NYU Dental Clinic looked into and initiated this week so I coluld make my Ohio trek in relative comfort next Friday. Oy!

Today, I'm leaving the cold of my apartment for Toyland and various tasks, including an editing session with my friend Mr Skip Kennon. I think today we are tacklng the song "Bagdad" reached No. 2 in record sales for 1913 in Billy May's hit recording:         
          Hold-up copers, pistol toters
          Taxi cheaters, female voters,
          In old Bagdad were taboo,
          Bread and butter charges too.
          To increase the population
          Was the fav'rite recreation,
          Allah smiled on all such things,
          Allah always pulls the strings.

          Life was fine and fair in Bagdad.
          City fair of mystic spells,
          Oh, those olden temples golden,
          And oh, those spicy garlic smells.
          There they had no alimony,
          No divorce? No no!         
          For the cost of one New Yorker
          You could keep a hundred corkers
          In Oriental Bagdad long ago.


We missed two birthdays this week for two of my favorite writers: Richard Rodgers and Frank Loesser, whose 100th birthday was yesterday. If I were a bell . . .!

Good morning.  Nice and bright and windy this morning.  Who knows what the day will bring.  I think the DP and I are going to head to one of those over priced shopping places.  I don't understand why people think it's important to have a Rodeo Drive sort of shopping area in the middle of a jungle. 

For ask BK day:  I was amused with the comments about the film "You Light Up My Life" in your recent book as I had asked about that film ages ago here on the board.  Any possibility of Kritzerland releasing the soundtrack?  I know it's cheezy, but cheezy is sometimes fun :)

Don't you think it's because shopping has become the Great American Family pastime over things like church, farming, socializing? The only places I ever see a family together in the midwest are malls.

I just listened to the recording of my Library of Congress debacle, a revue by Harold Arlen, Ira Gewrshwin, and E.Y. Harburg. I'm prejudiced, since it was a horrid experience and I lost several friends on the project. I do like many of the cast members and I think some of them are absolutely perfect casting.

I like the Encores! Ziegfeld Follies recording much more because the cast seems right and - I admit - I have no knowledge about what was perpetrated to the score for that production. I think it's one of Rob Fisher's best recordings and I think it sounds more "right" than a lot of the revisions here. There are a lot of false and inaccurate changes as well, too many choral arrangements that are of of period and terminally cute, like the added patter to "All the Elks and Masons," which is not in the full score or the libretto, and too many transpositions that are fine for a revival, but wrong for what this was to be asa historical restoration. I'm mostly angry because I'm getting credit for too many embarrassing things I did not do to the score and would not have approved. I asked twice to be removed from the credits. I know the recording is getting good press, but I take no pride in it.

I still don't understand why Eric Stern isn't credited for his conducting. He's very good.

I took Mom and her other half out for dinner last night. Chef Paul made her a special dessert and she got kisses from the waiters. I told her that her gift would be to take her and her other half to NY for the JEWS AND BASEBALL theatrical premiere, Nov. 4 (I think!). I hope some HHWers will be able to come and meet her since she's heard so much about the group (she's also a big fan of Guy Haines!)

She wants to go the the Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, we'll probably catch a show or two, and of course the film. Any other things anyone thinks an 80 year old lady would like, I'm open for suggestions!

Title: Re: 1000 CDS
Post by: JMK on June 30, 2010, 12:50:37 PM
May I just say that taking screencaps is a pain in the you know what, as the bulk of my assigned titles are "live" things like opera, ballets and concerts which are typically 1080i, belying their television origins.  That means I have to find moments of relative stillness so that I don't get combing artifacts (from the interlaced images) on my screencaps.  That of course is next to impossible with ballet.  A lot of my ballet reviews have lovely screencaps of the curtain.  :)

I took a bus tour yesterday that went north of the city and stopped at a place called Malahide Castle.  This one was a little more impressive from the outside.  The bus drove along the coast and we stopped for some pictures of Dublin Bay.

The weather has been good, actually.  Some sun, no rain until tonight.

After the tour I went to the area known as Temple Bar, named after a place called, funnily enough, Temple Bar ( I guess it's famous).  I had a spaghetti dinner and walked around a little bit.

I took the hop-on, hop-off bus again yesterday (it's good for 3 days and I have to get my money's worth).  This time I got off at Dublin Castle.  Who knew there was a castle in the middle of the city?  It's not much from the outside, but very ornate on the inside.  And there was some interesting carpet, DR Laura.  I took a picture just for you!

Did you get down underneath where the river runs? We loved the Castle tour.

We also went to Malahide Castle. A friend from Belfast took us there. It was decorated for Christmas (we were there in December of 2005), and we stayed at a place within walking distance of Temple Bar. We rented an apartment in a complex called Christchurch, just up the road from the church called, yes, Christchurch.

Oh, Dublin, I love you!!!

Had some good news in terms of the book - I'm doing a signing on August 10 at the Burbank Public Library - my first ever library signing and I'm very excited about it.

Also doing a radio interview on KFWB, I think, in about three weeks.  So, little by little.

Nice on both counts.  Is the library signing at night?

Yes, at seven.

Sounds like the publicist is doing well for you.

We in the County of Alameda have been briefed on how the County will respond to the verdict in the Johannes Mehserle trial going on in LA.  This trial is about the shooting in Oakland of a young black man named Oscar Grant by white BART Policeman Mehserle on New Year's Day 2009.  Grant was one of several young men who were, allegedly, causing trouble and harrassing passengers on BART (the Bay Area Rapid Transit system).  BART police interecepted the train at the Fruitvale Station and got the young men off.  They struggled with them and handcuffed them.  Grant was put on the pavement, face down, and officers attempted to cuff him.  Not sure of all the details, but he allegedly wrested one arm free and brought it under his body.  Mehserle, one of the officers handling Grant, pulled his gun and shot him.  Grant died shortly thereafter.  Many passengers waiting on trains took video with their cell phones.   The video shows a routine takedown and officers trying to get the man's hands together.  When Grant wrested his arm away, Mehserle drew his weapon and fired into Grant's back.  Coroner says nothing could have saved Grant afterward.

Prosecution (and much of the Oakland community) thinks Mehserle should be convicted of 1st degree murder.  Even before Grand Jury hearings had been completed last year, crowds thronged in the streets of Oakland on several occasions, and always erupted into violence/destruction when a "few" got ugly.

Oakland and surrounding communities, including San Francisco across the Bay, are preparing to exercise "mob control" in the event that some riot or other breaks out on the day the verdict is handed down.  It should go to the jury tomorrow.  The judge ruled today that insufficient evidence/cause existed to convict him of 1st degree murder.  He ruled they can convict of 2nd degree murder.  Prosecution doesn't want an option for manslaughter, voluntary or involuntary. 

I think that's a mistake.  I don't believe they're going to convict on 2nd degree murder if that's the only charge possible.  I think it's obvious this was a tragic, horrible mistake on the part of the officer.  He has no history of racial prejudice/action, and no video shows him doing anything out of order other than drawing his weapon and firing.  He testified he thought he was drawing his laser as he wanted to stun the guy to keep him from resisting. 

Regardless of the jury's decision, we think ugly things are going to happen in key hotspots here.

We will be "getting out of Dodge" on the day the verdict is reached, so to speak.  The Courts have agreed to notify State/County/City governments two hours before the verdict is read.  We will be told to go home and hunker down.

I had a nice day today.  The plan was to meet Paul at 9:00 at the water tower to touch up all the past years' murals so they will look good for Saturday in the Park this weekend.  Well....this is Paul time....9:00 turned into 4:00 and then into "can you do this tomorrow?"  So, we're now going to meet at 8:00 AM and work together until noon.  I told him I am leaving at noon and that's not negotiable.

Oh, I met Paul for coffee at about 8:30 am, I already knew we weren't going to paint in the morning.  Let's see. I spent most of the time looking for one of my historic preservation books that I wanted to read, lol. I finally found it under a cat bed....don't ask....I paid some bills, got some great news on a case so I went to the office for awhile to pass the news on,  went to a new Mexican restaurant for lunch, found out we weren't going to paint in the afternoon..read my book, watched a Top Chef rerun...played with the cats....

Really nothing much..I had a couple other work emails I responded to, but pretty much haven't done anything.   I do need to go to Petco to get stocked up for the next couple days and get ready to go to the lake.

Paul was good about telling me way before we would have met that we weren't going to paint.  He's a lot different than he used to be in that sense.  It's pretty funny, when we try to place something time wise it's often, "Oh that must have been when we weren't talking to each other".  It's become a joke between us. It's been nearly a year since we put all that behind us.  I didn't help him last year and he hated what he painted so much he painted over it to do a new mural this year, lol.

Anyway, Violet is 6 months old and I've never seen her, so this will be fun.  I'm only staying till Satuday AM and as usual Callie and Boo with have Sharon here to take care of them.  Then I'll have a 3 day weekend here at home.  Saturday is the 20th anniversary of Saturday in the Park, an all day free concert in our historic outdoor bandshell.  There will be thousands and thousands of people.  The headliners are Carlos Santana and Steve Winwood.  It should be a good time.

According to IMDB, it was a company called CDI. Don't know much of anything about it. John Turturro directed. The cast had Susan Sarandon and Christopher Walken in it.

There was a soundtrack recording. I have it. Bill Bolcom and Joan Morris are friends. I was invited to the recording sessions at the Edison Hotel recording studio. The score is great,

I've always wanted to see that studio. I tried to sneak up there one time when I was staying there but got busted. One day...

tonight's feature: "Zombieland." Fun so far.

They filmed a lot of that near my house in Marietta and several scenes in my friend Mamie's house. They dropped a piano in teh middle of her street, and the whole neighborhood turned out to watch.

The piano falling scene was the funniest gag in the movie.

BK, since a few others are asking about soundtracks today, how about a release of William Bolcom's score for "Illuminata"? I remember seeing the movie and loving the music from it.

A friend of mine edited that and he was the one who make the connection for us to ask John Turturro to do the voice of Vanzetti for our film. I loved Illuminata, especially since it features Bill Irwin!
I loved the film, too. I read some really weird reviews of it. Guess you have to like the theater. Everyone involved seemed to have been having a blast making it.

Kevin H, if you have a chance to go outside Dublin for a beautiful day in an amazing garden, I highly recommend:

I second the vote on Powerscourt, especially when the flowers might be in bloom. I saw it in February when the water fountains were large icicles, and it was still majestic.

DR Vixmom - Reid is 13 or 14 and a great kid.  A couple of other congregations represented at the synod wanted him to defect to them, but Fr. Palmer said they couldn't have him!

Had some good news in terms of the book - I'm doing a signing on August 10 at the Burbank Public Library - my first ever library signing and I'm very excited about it.

Also doing a radio interview on KFWB, I think, in about three weeks.  So, little by little.


This is great news! Congratulations

BK, did these book events come through your PR person.  You should try and get on some NPR show like Fresh Air or something...that would go out nationwide.  Hell, Oprah!  Book of the month!

Ron has evidence been given as to how he could have mistaken his gun for his laser?

It is many hours later, Jane, and someone else may have answered this.  From what I understand, the defense witnesses, and Mehserle himself, all stated there was a lot of confusion.  It was noisy and several different troublemakers were being handled by different groups of officers.  At some point someone said Mehserle had unholstered his stun gun and had it out a couple of times.  I haven't seen any actual testimony to indicate the sequence of events or how Mehserle, himself, recounted what happened and why he thinks it may have happened.

Some co-workers cannot get past the fact that three officers were needed to take down Grant.   Actually, I believe there were three officers per troublemaker.  One person resisting arrest with all his might can be difficult to handle even when two officers are handling him. 

Others contend that with Grant face down, there was no need to stun him...and that the shooting had to be racially motivated.

People believe what they want to believe regardless of how incomprehensible it might be.

And is it true that now, on still evenings, the tinkling sound of piano strings being torn apart still haunt the neighborhood?

ASK BK DAY

Will we ever get to buy the DVD with Kevin Spirtas and Sean McDermott?

Sadly, I don't think so.  What we're investing is releasing the audio on CD.

Hope this happens!
