Last night, I went to Cannibal! director Pug's house for a reading of "The Weir."  It's a show that TAO is going to do next season.  It was quite good...even just being read.

Good Morning to all. I woke up around 5:30am
It is bright out and it through me off.
I thought it was around 7:00am.
I had forgotten the further north one gets the earlier it gets brighter,
At least I'm not that far north where its bright 24hrs a day!

Good morning, all! I have a lot of Victor Herbert work today, so I'll occasionally be stopping by during the day to check on everyone! the copyists have been working quite hard and I have to catch up, because I'm the holdup on the invoice being turned in to pay them. About 2/3 of the score gas now been copied, so I'm happy to report that we are way ahead of schedule.

Ages ago now, it seems, when vixmom and The Vixter went to see The Importance of Being Earnest, I wasn't tha enthusiastic about seeing it; I'm not a huge fan of the Roundabout, which seems to be the Bermuda Triangle for losing old musicals in revival, and I had no high expectations for the Wilde comedy. I was terribly wrong, and the production was a delight, with a beautiful design and a wonderful cast.

More coffee, and to work!

Good Morning!

I'm up, I'm up... And I'm listening to Liane Hansen's final show as host of NPR's Weekend Edition Sunday. I actually remember listening to her first show, some of her landmark shows, and the announcement of her retirement last year. I will truly miss her voice as part of my Sunday morning routine.

Thanks for the continued vibes.   Today is one week since the tornado.  I finally heard from my sister today via email.  It was good to hear from her.  It's been really tough on her and she's having nightmares about the things they saw when they went to get Joe.   It wasn't pretty.

I had to come down to Toyland to use the scanner and now I will head myself back home for a lot of edits! There's a street fair on Broadway between 79th and 86th so I may later wander out for a bit and check it out.

I've been reading Congreve's THE WAY OF THE WORLD, which is funny, but - familiar as I am with 17th and 18th Century comedy dialogue - I'm still a bit lost in this play's machinations and I wish I were a little more familiar with the sexual innuendoes in the text.
Mrs Fainall is married to Mr Fainall, the villain, and the marriage had been arranged when, during her affair with Mirabell, she thought she might be pregnant
Fainall is married unhappily to Mrs Fainall, and in a heavy affair with Mrs Marwood; together he and Marwood are plotting the downfall of Mirabell and his love for Mrs Millamant
Marwood hates Mirabell because he rejected her advances
Mrs Fainall is still on friendly terms with Mirabell and helping him in his attempts to marry Millamant, whose fortune - until she marries - is under control of her old aunt, Lady Wishfort
Millamant and Mrs Fainall are cousins; Millamant is neice to, and Fainall daughter of, Lady Wishfort, who hates Mirabell because he once pretended to love her and got the horny old lady's knickers in a twist
Lady Wishfort is trying to marry her niece Millamant to her idiot nephew Sir Wilfull Witwould so she can control Millamant's fortune
Mirabell and Millamant are in a plot with Foible, Lady Wishfort's maid, and Foible's husband Waitwell, Mirabell's servant, to have Waitwell impersonate Mirabell's wealthy uncle Sir Rowland, who claims to be in love with Lady Wishfort, so they can blackmail her into giving Millamant permission (and the fortune she controls) to marry Mirabell. Fainall and Marwood have learnedof this plot and are determined todestroy Mirabell and Millamant.

That's the essential plot. I am still uncertain, in this play where everyone's having sex with someone else and often using it as a power play or wishing to have sex, exactly what is going on with the two leading characters, Are they or aren't they doing the dread deed? I'm sure it was clear to the original audience, butthere are too many ambiguous word usages, like "friend," which can mean as well a sexual partner, keep, protector. There's great rhythm to the language but there sure are a helluva lot of archaic words!
Title: Re: FRIED CHICKEN
Post by: elmore3003 on May 29, 2011, 09:50:44 AM
As you can see from the plot to THE WAY OF THE WORLD that sexual politics in the late seventeenth century haven't changed much since then. It all sounds like a typical soap opera plot from 2011.

I also loved BAD DAY AT BLACK ROCK.....Mr John Ericson and Miss Anne Francis are so very nice to look at.

Miss Francis told the story on a TCM filler, that Mr Tracy was a bit rough on her during some of their scenes - so that when she was driving him in the jeep - and he could only hold on with one arm.....she drove as fast and she could and hit every bump she could find....after which Tracy wasn't quite as cold to her.

Thank you.  MBarnum took photos of Sherlock munching on a big stick.  i do't how well they came out as sherlock keep utrning away from the camera.  Photos were also taken for DR Laura.  We forgot to take a photo of us at lunch.  I had meant to do so especially since we ate at the hotel MBarnum used to work at.

Our walk was on the short side as it was raining lightly.  Just as we were leaving the sun came out.  After lunch Keith retrieved sherlock from the car & we went looking for the apartment M used to live in.  Not knowing how far away it was we turned back.  He did find it later driving around in his car & left us a message a few minutes before we returned home.

We had the delicious chocolate cake I have talked about & I had a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side in a tall sundae glass.  since the ice cream was a bit on the hard side Keith had to hold the glass steady while i used my spoon to get little scoops out. ;D

I'm guessing this means that DR MBarnum will be spending a lot of time in Westwood the next time he visits L.A. ;)

DR Jennifer - A waffle is basically a piece of bread. Fried chicken and a piece of bread is not "odd". -I actually like fried chicken and pancakes. -And since pancakes and waffles can be made from the same batter, well...

Is "fried chicken and biscuits" odd to you too?

When you bring up the photo, there will be an option to tag the photo under the photo on the left side. Once you select that, you just click on a "face", then a menu will pop up allowing you to type in and select a name. Click again to tag.

I had to come down to Toyland to use the scanner and now I will head myself back home for a lot of edits! There's a street fair on Broadway between 79th and 86th so I may later wander out for a bit and check it out.

I've been reading Congreve's THE WAY OF THE WORLD, which is funny, but - familiar as I am with 17th and 18th Century comedy dialogue - I'm still a bit lost in this play's machinations and I wish I were a little more familiar with the sexual innuendoes in the text.
Mrs Fainall is married to Mr Fainall, the villain, and the marriage had been arranged when, during her affair with Mirabell, she thought she might be pregnant
Fainall is married unhappily to Mrs Fainall, and in a heavy affair with Mrs Marwood; together he and Marwood are plotting the downfall of Mirabell and his love for Mrs Millamant
Marwood hates Mirabell because he rejected her advances
Mrs Fainall is still on friendly terms with Mirabell and helping him in his attempts to marry Millamant, whose fortune - until she marries - is under control of her old aunt, Lady Wishfort
Millamant and Mrs Fainall are cousins; Millamant is neice to, and Fainall daughter of, Lady Wishfort, who hates Mirabell because he once pretended to love her and got the horny old lady's knickers in a twist
Lady Wishfort is trying to marry her niece Millamant to her idiot nephew Sir Wilfull Witwould so she can control Millamant's fortune
Mirabell and Millamant are in a plot with Foible, Lady Wishfort's maid, and Foible's husband Waitwell, Mirabell's servant, to have Waitwell impersonate Mirabell's wealthy uncle Sir Rowland, who claims to be in love with Lady Wishfort, so they can blackmail her into giving Millamant permission (and the fortune she controls) to marry Mirabell. Fainall and Marwood have learnedof this plot and are determined todestroy Mirabell and Millamant.

That's the essential plot. I am still uncertain, in this play where everyone's having sex with someone else and often using it as a power play or wishing to have sex, exactly what is going on with the two leading characters, Are they or aren't they doing the dread deed? I'm sure it was clear to the original audience, butthere are too many ambiguous word usages, like "friend," which can mean as well a sexual partner, keep, protector. There's great rhythm to the language but there sure are a helluva lot of archaic words!

That plot so needs a flowchart. ::)

http://www.goldenlamb.com/

I've decided that Mirabell and Millamant are not yet sexually involved, but their scene laying out the conditions of marriage is absolutely brilliant. After he leaves, she has a wonderful line to Mrs Fainall along the lines of "if this marriage doesn't happen. I shall be lost - for I find I love him violently."

"Download"? or did you mean "Upload"? Is the pic already on Facebook? Or is just on your computer? If it's on your computer:

-Go to Craig's Facebook Page.

-Under the row of pictures there is a Share option. Click on Photo.

-Click on "Upload a Photo from your drive".

-Follow the prompts to select and upload the photo.

-Once that is done, it will be posted on Craig's Facebook Wall. You can tag him in it, or he can do it himself.

He may have his Privacy and Share settings set to "Friends of Friends", and if that's that the case, then basically anything on his Wall will be "automatically" Shared.

If you're just trying to get the picture to him: email it. ;)

You can do either.

If you upload it to his page, then tag it, it will only be on his page.

If you upload it to your page, and then tag it, it will show up on your page AND Craig will also get a notification on his page that you tagged him a photo - which then will show up in his "Pics of You" and on his page.

Here's my answer to your question what's happening in Florida.

Not sure what's happening but Gay Day at Disney has already started and not just in Orlando. It has become a money making proposition instead of a day of gay pride. It's getting ludicrous.

Other than that June 1 is the start of hurricane season.

Watching Ken Burns' "Jazz" series. Amazing archival footage, fine interviews, the music could not be better. Why am I not liking it more? Maybe the lengthy stories of the artists' addictions and other tragedies, the racism, the stupidity of so much behind such wonderful music.

I'm watching a Region 2, PAL DVD from England called Christopher and His Kind (http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B003Y3B0TK), about Christopher Isherwood and his time in Berlin, which inspired the musical Cabaret

It stars the newest Doctor Who, Matt Smith, and he's very good in this.  He must've made this just before he became the new Doctor.

If this is an accurate portrayal of his life, you can see how parts of it became Cabaret.

I was going to watch "The Boy Friend" next, but it won't play in my region code-free DVD player. :P

It does play in my Blu-ray player, though, so I'm watching it on that.
