Post by: bk on December 13, 2010, 12:35:39 AM
Well, you've read the notes, the notes were in a pear tree, and now it is time for you to post until the cows come home - they're currently listening to the Partridge in the Pear Tree, only they named the Partridge Shirley.

It's 5:27am. I can live with that. At least it's not 3:30am. I did go to bed around 9:45 after not taking any naps all day (it was difficult). I didn't have a great sleep (I kept dreaming about bags in the Equity lounge). I feel better and good enough that I will go in today for another round of bags. We still have 3 or 4 days left. But I have promised Anthony, Greg (our coordinator) and myself that I will not be quite so active. I don't want a repeat or something worse just before Christmas.

Morning, all!

TOD:

I'm sure there are a bunch of obscurities that I can't think of off the top of my head, but here goes:

* "Hurry It's Lovely Up Here"
* "I Talk to the Trees" (as done by the Smothers Brothers)
* "My Mother's Wedding Day"
* "Almost Like Being in Love"
* Everything from My Fair Lady, especially in Hebrew translation (and no, I'm not joking: there are actually TWO Hebrew cast recordings, each with its own charms)

Most shudder-inducing song: "Thank Heaven for Little Girls," which I heard played at a wedding as the flower-girl walked down the aisle

Is anyone here conversant with Hispanic music, or even Spanish?  I'm buying presents for a Hispanic man who wants music, and he put "Los Corridos" next to his request.  There doesn't seem to be a band with that name, but a cursory search of eBay seems to indicate it may be a style, like hip hop? ???  Does anyone know?

When my family moved to Pennsauken, we had a pear tree in the back yard.  What a mess it was!  They were these hard, green pears that no one liked to eat except my dad, and I think he only pretended that he did.  During the last week of August, they would begin dropping from the tree like leaves.  And if they weren't picked up immediately, they would ripen overnight into a pulpy mess that would attract swarms of yellowjackets.  Eventually, my dad relented to our complaints and took the hated tree down.

I cannot believe the problems I've had with my last order from Warner Archive.

 ???

They had a "Black Friday" 5 for $50.00 sale, so on 11/25 I put in an order, and they billed my credit card the same day.

 :-\

The order was shipped on December 1st via UPS "Mail Innovations," which is supposed to deliver their packages to the destination city's post office.

I live in Austin, TX.

 :)

On December 7th, my package was processed through the USPS in Cincinnati, OH.

 ???

On December 11th, it passed through the USPS in Des Moines, IA.

 :o

Where it is today....?

 :P

Warner Archive is now having the order duplicated and sent to me 2-day UPS.

That could take another 7-10 days.

Good morning, all! I slept 13 hours before I decided it was time to get out of bed and accomplish something, no matter how trivial it may be. I will not leave the house today but I am taking lots of vitamin C. Before I went to bed I tok a hefty sip of Nyquil which might account for so many peculiar dreams. In the last one, I was working for NPR on a coastal trip around the USA. I was working on a big band set every day to perform charts of songs pertaining to the States we were passing through.

I have to call Ron Raines today and ascertain that all went well with Jo Loesser's trek to the opera; I hated leaving her in the lurch. I've got some writing to do here, and that's my day.

JMK beat me to it, but, yes, the 12 days run Dec 25-Jan 6, BK.

I can sort of understand revisal like "Crazy for You" if no one is going to revival "Girl Crazy." And I can even understand trying to take a different approach on "On a Clear Day ..." since the original book is a mess. But does it have to be so obvious? I guess that's what I object to.

Well to me it was a big deal because they implied that certain favorites would be back.  I don't like when people show one thing and mean another . Even huge fans of the show were confused.

The list I posted is most likely correct. But I don't like to know spoilers about TAR. So i haven't really been reading comments about the season. But for the most part I think it's accurate.

I"m not 100% sure. But it seems like the cast for next season will be:
TAR 18- unfinished business
Kynt and Vyxsin
Amanda and Kris
Jaime and Cara
Kisha and Jen
Margie and Luke
Mel and Mike
Flight Time and Big Easy
Zev and Justin
Jet and Cord
Gary and Mallory
Michael and Kevin


Ah, that makes more sense then. I would have liked to see more Brook and Clair (the QVC women)

I would have loved to see them too. Although some people have said that Claire is pregnant now (Stephanie is for sure and married).

They are actually not from QVC or HSN. When they put them as "shopping hosts" I think most people assumed they worked on one of those channels.  When the season first aired I looked them up. And I believe they both used to work for the Gem channel in San Diego.

I've shipped, I've eaten a sandwich and fries, I will soon jog, and I've answered a plethora of e-mails - additionally, a package that should have been here Saturday did not arrive today.  This was shipped Priority on Friday along with another package (two from the same person) - shipped from about six miles from me.  Package one arrived Saturday, so why didn't package two?  The USPS, that's why - thoroughly inept and disgusting.  Happily, it's insured and I've asked him to get me the tracking number so I can go be terse with someone.

The doctor doesn't think her tests showed anything serious.  They will repeat one test in two months to check for growth plus tomorrow she will have a complete body bone scan.  I'm relieved to hear the news and extra relieved bad news was not received on the same day as the baby's birth.

I'd say 60-70% of the people who have contacted us are either in bankruptcy or have lost their homes to short sales or foreclosures.  The ridiculous thing about the home losses is that everyone so far has had stable incomes.  I guess they just overextended themselves and the banks wouldn't budge.  Idiots.

Then Jon and I saw the last night of previews of the revival.    I realize this is a nonequity touring version, but it's still A Chorus Line.

If you ever stage a play, just get Grey
If you ever write a show, let him know
If you ever have a scene that you want stole,
call on Joel

Love his fan-base, fan-base,
His who-cares-if-they-pan base,
When other fan-bases run away
His is here to stay!
(Give a wilkommen and bienvenu)

[JOEL]
If want them all to cheer, Suttonís here
If you want them to applaud, call that broad
If itís hokey and the writers need a pal,
Call this gal
 
Her fan-base, fan-base,
Itís no also-ran-base,
When other fan-bases give you hell
Hers is always swell!
(Give her, give her that thing called love)

Your fan-base, fan-base
I am in your fan-base
Where other fan-bases ainít much fun
Ours will make us run

[JOEL]
Itís ďastonishingĒ what she can do

We were spared the "entertainment" tonight, because the rule is if school's out due to weather there are no extracurriculars.  The high school chamber orchestra was not allowed to perform tonight.

I've caught up on today's posts, I've read the notes for the past few days, but I don't have the patience to catch up with the posts.  I'm sitting in a Starbucks doing email and listening to a geltoob of POTO with one Rebecca Luker as Christine and waiting for my next event (a penance service at 7:00) It's a lovely recording.   At home I have 2 Krtizerland titles to upload into iTunes as well as bk's "Hollywood Christmas" that came in the mail also. 

That's all I have

DR Matthew, I have the patience to read yours! :)

YAY! THE CLOSER is on!

I didn't mean to offend anyone on this site with my "patience" comment.  Sometimes it's hard to concentrate on anything  And at the moment, it was catching up on the posts. 

I wasn't offended, but I was calling you on it! I will admit that I gloss over posts in catching up at times, but I don't recall ever missing a day's posts since 2004.

DR Jennifer - Is it really that big a deal that the producers of "TAR" showed some teams who may not be in "TAR 18" after all?  -And is the list that you posted actually the "final" list? Even you note that you're not 100% sure.

Well to me it was a big deal because they implied that certain favorites would be back.  I don't like when people show one thing and mean another . Even huge fans of the show were confused.

The list I posted is most likely correct. But I don't like to know spoilers about TAR. So i haven't really been reading comments about the season. But for the most part I think it's accurate.

DR Jennifer - Well... Then why did you even bother tracking down that list in the first place? Just wait for the first episode to air to see who the teams are. This way you won't be disappointed. Right?

I do understand that you're a big fan of the show, but each new season of a show means that the producers need to generate some new buzz. -And if that involves showing clips of teams who may not be competing, well... -I'm also guessing that they're still filming this season, and they really can't show any clips of any of the challenges that have been completed so far.  So, just treat that "preview" as more of a "teaser". -And then just wait until February. -And by that time, most people probably will have forgotten which teams appeared in that teaser anyway. ;)

I think I might have figured out what's wrong. I will call the doctor tomorrow and try to get an appointment but if I can't get one I will go to urgent care.

I think I have an abdominal hernia.

Everything I've googled about my symptoms (I hate to make a diagnosis not being a doctor and all) makes me believe this. Now, I just need to find out if I need immediate treatment. There is nothing to "push in" with gentle pressure, at least not that I can feel, so I'll wait for the doctor tomorrow or Wednesday or Thursday.

Then that could mean it is in the early stages making a diagnosis difficult.  That is what happened to our friend anyway.  Fortunately he returned to the doctor when he felt something.

DR Ben - If you happen to be running a low-grade fever, you should probably get to someone sooner rather than later.  I have two friends who recently thought they were dealing with a hernia, and it turned out they both had appendicitis.  And my brother, Don, went through the same thing a couple of years ago.

My problem with the casting extends beyond Joel Grey to Sutton herself. I don't picture her as Reno. Reno is brassier than perky Sutton. I'm sure she can sing the songs well, but, then again, so could Brett Barrett, but I don't want to see him as Reno either.

Ballerina Jenifer Ringer....

too skinny, too fat, or just right?

http://news.yahoo.com/s/yblog_thelookout/20101213/us_yblog_thelookout/sugar-plum-fairy-doesnt-want-apology-from-critic-who-called-her-fat

The critic didn't call her too fat, just said she'd looked like she ate one sugar plum too many, and he also called a male dancer too fat, but no one's making a fuss over that.

But since Ringer has suffered from anorexia in the past, it was a rather cruel thing to say.

I wonder ow many girls are going to develop anorexia once Michele Obama's school program gets going.
