Well, you've read the notes, the notes were both logy and gross, and now it is time for you to post until the logy and gross cows come home.

jan, FJL coerced me to do a staged reading of The Last Starfighter a decade ago - I had fun, but I find it a bit nervewracking.  Thankfully I didn't have to learn anything, we held scripts.  I will say that since 2010 and doing Kritzerland and learning songs and patter for that, I don't think I would be so petrified these days.

I ended up with a season pass on Amazon for Fosse/Verdon.  So, I watched episode two - I wasn't that crazy about episode one, but this one really irritated me.  The writing is so lousy and I really don't like the structure of it - going back and forth and back and forth, and then this director everyone thinks is the greatest thing since who knows what starts with the awful cross-cutting ala All That Jazz to Fosse tapping on a stage to underscore the scene that's unfolding - it's cheap, off-putting, and adds zilch - in fact, I almost shut it off.  It's fun when they get the details right and it's also painfully obvious the way they have to shoot the numbers that neither Ms. Williams nor Mr. Rockwell are dancers - which is kind of an issue when the show is called Fosse/Verdon - two of the greatest dancers ever.  But Ms. Williams acts it very well and Mr. Rockwell certainly has the voice down but his bald cap is horrendous and even when Mr. Fosse was laconic and laid back there was an energy in the room  - whereas Mr. Rockewll is merely laconic and laid back with absolutely no energy at all.  In the end, for me, it's the writing and the direction that are not cutting it.  Just one man's opinion.  Let's hear some others.

Last night I watched my DVR'd episode one of FOSSE/VERDON, then watched episode two "live", but by the second half of that one I was falling asleep so I'll have to rewatch at some point. I agree that it's ludicrous that real dancers weren't cast, but Michelle Williams as Gwen Verdon is such a winner otherwise that you could just call the series VERDON or switch it around to VERDON/FOSSE and it would make sense thus far.

For me, the time jumps in these things often result in an irritating moment of "hmm, now where the F are we?" before I've settled in to the scene taking place. At those times it's a distracting gimmick. But a purely linear presentation wouldn't be so compelling either. How about the writers try meeting us halfway on this kind of thing? Agree about the little ALL THAT JAZZ imitations being excessive, and so amusingly pedestrian in comparison. BK and others have already pointed out the anachronisms, a couple of which are so glaring you have to shake your head. But I'll be sticking with it, just as I did with FEUD. Oy!

I'm up, I'm up - maybe six hours of sleep and a VERY rough night.  I'm convinced that the matzoh is rancid and that the two bites i had of it did me in, stomach-wise.  I'm a bit better now, but I had to lie very still and take several Pepcids.

Do you still have the receipt?  Sometimes, even if you threw away the bad food, you might be able to get a refund from the store (small consolation to all the crap you've been through).  I've actually been able to do that.  Just a thought.

True.  The author did talk about how much the show in general references contemporary (to us) pop culture, but I also found more humor in the episode than the author or the commenters did.

My bank called.  The €200 check from Ireland, which I deposited a month ago was returned with this note "We can no longer accept checks drawn on a bank in Ireland less than €500.00."  I betcha the effen bastards running my bank have spent the past weeks suing all the interest they can get out out of it before returning it.

I've sent an email to the RTE asking them how to proceed.  If they'd simply wired the money, there would have been no problem.

The frustrating bits are - I'm trying to finally get my Social Security benefits - I went to create an online account but kept getting error messages until it locked me out.  I called them and we tried inputting other addresses, none of which worked.  I asked why and he said because they verify addresses through Equifax.  So, I called Equifax and got some moron after having to listen and respond to ten minutes of voice prompts.  We ascertained that none of my addresses are what they have all the way back to 1998 and then he said he couldn't tell me what it was even though I gave him the pre 1998 address, which I probably gave him wrong anyway because I forgot about living at L'Estancia for a year, although I suspect they have the address of the Shores, but who knows.  So, in order for them to update, I now have to fax them a bunch of stupid documents.  I don't have my social card anymore because my wallet was stolen 16 years ago or more.  So, I have to do a birth certificate and a few documents that have my current address, which is easy.  And I have to  write a cover letter and then it takes ten days to get in their system and THEN I can create an account.  It shouldn't be this hard.

Listening to Mimi Bessette's Lullabies of Broadway. Charming. The highlight is an Irish-flavored song I didn't know called My Broth of a Boy, which was written by Cole Porter for Mississippi Belle.

The frustrating bits are - I'm trying to finally get my Social Security benefits - I went to create an online account but kept getting error messages until it locked me out.  I called them and we tried inputting other addresses, none of which worked.  I asked why and he said because they verify addresses through Equifax.  So, I called Equifax and got some moron after having to listen and respond to ten minutes of voice prompts.  We ascertained that none of my addresses are what they have all the way back to 1998 and then he said he couldn't tell me what it was even though I gave him the pre 1998 address, which I probably gave him wrong anyway because I forgot about living at L'Estancia for a year, although I suspect they have the address of the Shores, but who knows.  So, in order for them to update, I now have to fax them a bunch of stupid documents.  I don't have my social card anymore because my wallet was stolen 16 years ago or more.  So, I have to do a birth certificate and a few documents that have my current address, which is easy.  And I have to  write a cover letter and then it takes ten days to get in their system and THEN I can create an account.  It shouldn't be this hard.

Wow, on so many counts.  First, you carried your SS card in your wallet  :o  And then didn't replace it when it was stolen! 

I had no idea about Equifax.  The address issue sounds very complicated.  I expect there are many, many people who don't recall every address they have lived at.

Listening to Schoenberg - Five Pieces for Orchestra - this is him firmly planted in twelve-tone mode, but it's not unappealing, this particular piece.  The other selections on this CD coming up are Webern, Five Pieces for Orchestra, and Berg, Three Pieces for Orchestra and Lulu Suite.  I've heard this CD before and never wanted to hear it again, but now that I've grown accustomed to the music, I'm kind of enjoying the textures and colors.  This is a Mercury Living Prsence CD originally recorded on 35mm.  Sound is breathaking.  Dorati conducting - I like him very much.

From the ridiculous ending of Interrupted Melody, in which the polio-ridden opera-singing heroine gets on her feet due to the power of Wagner, to the silliness of Because You're Mine with Mario Lanza and Doretta Morrow. Long before Elvis got drafted, Mario played an opera singer who gets drafted. I can't watch all of this in one sitting.
