Well, you've read the notes, the notes prayed for and praised Rosemary's Baby, novel and film, and now it is time for you to post until the devil cows come home.

GLEE was okay last night - even with the truncated versions of songs from WSS - which made me want to watch the movie, which I may do tonight.

DR JOSE obviously that nurse didn't know who are you.....you should have just told her you were a famous Broadway pianist - but be very careful how you pronounce that on the telephone.

They had a big party at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel on Olympic last night at Wolfgang Puck's restaurant and then a concert by Jane's Addiction.....fun!   ;D

I recall that they did a sequel to ROSEMARY'S BABY as a television movie.

Rosemary (played by Patty Duke?) disappears about 15 minutes into it, then the rest of the film centers on her grown son.

Frankly, I don't remember much about it...except that one scene takes place in a shul.

Question:

Was this film adapted from Levin's book...or was it another writer's concoction?

Rosemary's Baby is certainly a brilliant film. I've seen a HD TV broadcast of it which looked vastly better than the DVD. It's high time a Blu-ray version came out.

I must read the book. I've never read any of Ira Levin's novels.

Pan Am starts on BBC television next week. As a keen flyer I will have to watch it. One thing which looks daft is having somebody play a pilot who looks about 20 years old! But then everything has to be slanted to appeal to the young nowadays.

True ROSEMARY'S BABY Story Department:  My mother was aghast when she found me reading ROSEMARY'S BABY (which she of course had purchased to read).  She tried to take it from me and I went ballistic, at which point she said, "All right, but if you have any questions, ask your father."  My only question (as hilarious as it was) was the fact that I had never seen the word "buttocks" printed before and was confused by it momentarily.  I was taught to read phonetically and had ass-umed (ahem) up until that point that that word was spelled "butex".  :)

Levin wrote a sequel, Son of Rosemary, which many people found somewhat confusing.

This new Elmer Bernstein LP I got has the oddest interpolation into his MOCKINGBIRD Theme, a choral section that I don't believe is in any part of the actual score (I'll have to get the album out again and listen to it to make sure).

I think it's a matter of Mainstream buying the äva catalog.   IIRC, äva was a Frank Sinatra-owned label...named after Ava Gardner.

If what you have  is on the Mainstream label, it's the same recording in the same sequencing.

I dropped PAN AM from my viewing...as well as 2 BROKE GIRLS, CASTLE, and RULES OF ENGAGEMENT. I also dropped Betty White's tv series. It isn't that I disliked any of these shows, it was just that with adding THE JACK BENNY PROGRAM and KRAFT SUSPENSE THEATRE to my recordings, I was simply watching TOO MUCH tv and thus getting nothing else done while I was at home.

I will stick with the remaining season of THE CLOSER, and I still watch MODERN FAMILY and THE OFFICE and this season's THE AMAZING RACE. Also holding onto this season's SURVIVOR, as it is a pretty entertaining one, for a change.

Will likely not watch this season of SOUTHLAND.

Just to be clear - the TV movie sequel to Rosemary's Baby had nothing to do with Ira Levin.  His sequel was written back in 2000 or thereabouts.  Most people really didn't like Son of Rosemary, but I enjoyed it just because I enjoy his writing so much.  It wasn't confusing to me, because I "got" where it was going the minute he mentioned a certain film she was watching on TV.

JMK - somersault, because soul master is really two words, although so is roast mules, but I think he says it should anagram out to one word.

But when you have a shelf load of films with titles like LURE OF THE SWAMP, INVASION OF THE SAUCER MEN, and CONFESSIONS OF A SORORITY GIRL I am sure you can see why I have been remiss in catching up on all of the classics.

Alas, that does not surprise nor shock me.

I wouldn't have minded not seeing it.

I dropped PAN AM from my viewing...as well as 2 BROKE GIRLS, CASTLE, and RULES OF ENGAGEMENT. I also dropped Betty White's tv series. It isn't that I disliked any of these shows, it was just that with adding THE JACK BENNY PROGRAM and KRAFT SUSPENSE THEATRE to my recordings, I was simply watching TOO MUCH tv and thus getting nothing else done while I was at home.

I will stick with the remaining season of THE CLOSER, and I still watch MODERN FAMILY and THE OFFICE and this season's THE AMAZING RACE. Also holding onto this season's SURVIVOR, as it is a pretty entertaining one, for a change.

Will likely not watch this season of SOUTHLAND.



I admit CASTLE had a slow beginning this season but it has gotten good again.

I was still enjoying CASTLE, and I will catch up with it either in reruns or when it is on dvd. It is a wonderful program, but I just don't have the time to watch it each week.

DR MBarnum:  I love "The Rifleman"...grew up watching it and yet I still enjoy it in re-runs.

DR Jane:  "Rosemary's Baby" is one of MY favorite films.  I'm sorry it upset you.

Apropos of nothing else being talked about:

"Unforgettable" get better and better!  And last night's "NCIS" was one of that show's finest offerings, IMO.  And it was Part 1 of 2...something I usually dislike, but when it's done this well and the part 1 is so riveting I find myself anxiously awaiting next week's part 2.

It's more mind-boggling than that, Doug. 

We once had a "what are your favorite Gregory Peck films?" TOD and MBarnum confided that he didn't believe he'd ever seen a Gregory Peck film.  I think it was Peck.  If it wasn't, it was someone equally notable.

Earlier this year, he posted:

That was part of the problem. The DVR fills up so fast when you record these shows in HD, so no, I am not recording Castle. The DVD of this season will be out soon enough, and I can rent it then and catch up on the rest of the episodes.

As a matter of fact.....you know I have recorded it several times, but then never got around to watching it and deleted it from the DVR. I think there were too many episodes of Mr. Ed that I had to catch up on at the time.

Craig laughed at the little heater next to me & I admitted it isn't helping much.  As soon as I stepped away from my computer I knew how much warmer I was with the little heater blowing on me.  I should have continued doing laundry which also kept the room warmer, possibly better than the little heater.

Tomorrow we start our performances at Tokyo International Forum - it's a 5,000-seat venue, and we have four sold-out shows there this weekend as well as a sold-out closing performance in December. So in the next three days, I'll get to perform for 20,000 people. Crazy, huh?!?!

DR Ginny - thanks! Unfortunately, many of the photos I've posted on the Book of Face were deleted last night when I tried to clear out some space from my computer's hard drive. :-( I uploaded all those pictures from iPhoto to Facebook, and when I deleted the pics from iPhoto, it also removed them from the Facebook albums. So now I have to decide if I want to go back and repost all those photos or not... :-\ Thank God I backed up all those pictures, though!! I would be heartbroken if I'd lost the actual picture files.

DR Jason, our Europe trip was fantastic.  5 days on our own in Paris, a week-long river cruise from Nuremburg, Germany to Remich, Luxembourg, and a couple of days in Reims, France, and it all seems like a dream.  We've been home 2 weeks now and sometimes I can't believe we were really there.

I'm so glad you had such a wonderful time. Germany is lovely, but I don't remember much of Paris, honestly. I was so young when we were there. :-\ Did your DH enjoy it, as well??

Back from a long but really good and fun rehearsal.  I can see that I'm going to have to ride herd on the student actors - it's not their fault, really, they've never done anything like this before - but they are not retaining what they learn so at every rehearsal (well, we've only had three), it's like starting from scratch.  But today they finally all brought something to record with so hopefully that will help, although they each have a CD with all the songs on them.  Jose will have to have a couple of sessions with just them, just to deal with note values, cut-offs, and that kind of thing, because that's not something that it easy to understand when you haven't been trained.  But they're awfully cute and work hard, and that's all I care about.  I must have staged nine numbers tonight, including some real staging, not just walking - really fun stuff, I think, and as folks get off book I'll be able to add and finesse each number.  But I was very pleased this evening.

Good Evening!

Well... My "mountain" is getting smaller. Or at least easier to climb. ;)

Today, I ushered for two, count 'em TWO performances of the tour of Spamalot, here in Olympia.  The matinee had about 400 people and the evening show was practically sold out...the house holds 988 and the final count was 910.  Both shows were quite fun and all the performers were very good.  A great time was had by all. :D
