I've caught up with all of yesterday's posts.  Isn't that thrilling news? ;)

When I left for work yesterday evening, I went to Fred Meyer's to see if they had a light coat that I might want to buy (I really need a new coat that's not a big, heavy winter coat).  Sadly, I couldn't find one, so I bought a couple of new shirts.  One of them is green, in anticipation of this Friday's St. Patrick's Day!  And since my middle name is Patrick and I'm part Irish, it's quite appropriate. ;D

Yesterday, I received a DVD in the mail:  Banned & Censored (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0000541UL/qid=1142413371/sr=8-1/ref=sr_1_1/102-4779504-7364131?%5Fencoding=UTF8&v=glance&n=130).  Fortunately, I actually ordered it. ;)  Anyway, it says on the back:

Just what was the Hayes Office up to in the '30s and '40s when they Banned and Censored hundreds of films.  Now see many of the cartoons which were censored and banned, at the time, from theaters and television with a full description of why, and copies of the laws and resolutions which made the screen safe for America.  Enjoy 13 full-lengh, fully restored, and sound enhanced animated examples.

There's a bonus section that explains why each cartoon was banned.  A lot of them contain racial stereotypes, one contains "homosexual overtones" and one cartoon even has a baby saying, "Ah sh*t!"
Title: Re:RELAXATION TIME
Post by: George on March 15, 2006, 01:42:53 AM
It's very interesting to see these cartoons and to learn and see why they were banned.  I noticed Mel Blanc doing voices on a couple of the cartoons.  One WWII cartoon with the character of Snafu (who sound a lot like Bugs Bunny) did a bit that was used later in a Road Runner cartoon.

DR RODZINSKI - I have not heard HAPPY TIME, and it was a troubled show from what you can read in THE SEASON, but a few DR's chose it last week as one of their favorites scores from flop shows....or something like that.

Hmmm.....I must ponder my question.

Like DRMATTH - I like the Bing Crosby DVD with JUST FOR YOU and HERE COMES THE GROOM...and like DR MATTH, I like JUST FOR YOU better.  My favorite number (I like them all) is Zing a Little Zong (Wyman & Crosby) - and their are also nice performances from Natalie Wood and Ethel Barrymore.

Good morning, all!  Yes, add me to the HAPPY TIME list; I think it's a glorious score filled with nostalgia and great tunes:  the combination of the "St Pierre" school song with "I Don't Remember You" is truly moving.  In 1979, I was lucky to see the Goodspeed revival which was wonderful:  the authors went back to the original pre-Gower Champion book and either wrote or restored two or three cut songs which tied things together,like a song for the photographer called "Running" (?) which used a motif from Michael Rupert's song "Stay."  The original show made Goulet a successful photographer, and this version of the show revealed it was all empty boasting.  I think it's a vastly underappreciated Kander & Ebb piece.

DR Jose, the pit at the Palace, which once held around 30 players can only hold 15 now?  Isn't that pathetic?  Your show was discussed at dinner.

DR MBarnum, I prefer both Keel and the cast in SEVEN BRIDES; Kathryn Grayson in KISS ME, KATE sets my teeth on edge.

TOD:  I may have questions later.  Yes, I may.

Oh, yes... As for the "Deep Fried Chip Butty"...  After I was done at The Palace, I ended up getting a call from my friend, James, who ended up having to stay a bit after his usual 6:00 clock-out time.  "Dinner? My treat?"  -Sure.  So...

The other week, I had told him about the Chip Shop (http://www.chipshopnyc.com) over in Brooklyn, and he was intrigued, so we hopped on the N and then the R and headed over to Park Slope.  Once we got there, we ended up loading our table with all sorts of deep-fried goodness: Fried Macaroni & Cheese, Fish & Chips, and the aforementioned Deep Fried Chip Butty.  Well...

I wasn't all that interested in a Deep Fried Chip Butty, since a regular, non-deep-fried Chip Butty is a piece of buttered toast with Chips (french fries) on top.  However, once James saw it on the menu - and after I had told him what it was - he just had to order it.  And, heck, it was only $4.00, so... When the waiter came to take our order, he asked, "Are you sure?"  -Well, yes.  "It's quite a large dish.".  -Well, OK.

When it came to the table, we both started laughing.  It was about seven inches square and our inches thick.  And it was what it was: a thick slice of buttered toast, a generous heap of chips, another slice of buttered toast... then that whole mess was dipped in chip batter and fried.  Alas, it was surprisingly "good", but in that "who'd of thunk?" way.

Needless to say, neither of us really made a dent in our respective halves.  But at least we can say we tried one.  ;)  *I did end up ordering a side dish of the Spinach Curry from the Indian side of the menu so that I would have something green and vegetable-like with my dinner.

OH!  And for dessert... A Deep-Fried Bounty Bar!

:)
Title: Re:RELAXATION TIME
Post by: JoseSPiano on March 15, 2006, 05:43:29 AM
...And that Fried Mac & Cheese was quite tasty too!  A nice "snowball" of fried cheese and macaroni.

:)

And to wash it all down, I had a B&D - Burdock & Dandelion.

A veddy, veddy English supper.

*And after dinner, we made ourselves walk around for at least 30 minutes just to help get the artery un-clogging started before hopping back on the subway back into Manhattan.

;)

Last night, DR Rodzinski asked:

"At a library book sale, I saw a cast LP for a Kander-Ebb show Goulet was in called THE HAPPY TIME.

Can anyone tell me if this is any good?"

It's probably my favorite Broadway flop, and the score is superb. Every number is a winner, Goulet was never in better voice, David Wayne steals every song he's in, and it's Mike (later Michael) Rupert's first big chance on Broadway, and he makes the most of it.

I saw the show in 1968 and absolutely fell in love with it. Goulet's "Walking Among My Yesterdays" and "I Don't Remember You" just swept me up with the power and tone of his voice. Among my greatest theater memories.

Vixdad is always talking about craving a chip butty or better yet a bacopn butty (remember English bacon is more like Canadian bacon than American Bacon)  but I have never heard him mentioning it being dipped batter and deep fried I shall have to speak to him on this



One of his favorite fast dinners from  "the olde country"  is beans on toast, which, as you may surmise by its name,  is nothing more than two or more pieces of buttered toast with baked beans (Heinz Vegetarian natch!)  poured over the top.

I bought the original cast album (there apparently have been no others.) ON THE TWENTIETH CENTURY CD yesterday, at Barnes and Noble in Westlake Village. Boy, that Cy Coleman could spin tune, couldn't he. A very young Kevin Kline is on said cast album - in a role that pretty much put him on the map. And Imogen Coca has a great turn in REPENT! Actually, I like that song so much, I may start using it. Comden and Green at their hilarious best!

A German spy who is sent to Ireland during World War II. The German is instructed to meet an Irish spy named Murphy and confirm Murphy's identity by saying, "The weather could change by Tuesday."

After the German parachutes into Ireland, he sets off for town. Along the way, he asks a farmer where he might find a man named Murphy.

"Well, sir, it all depends on which Murphy," says the farmer. "We have Murphy the doctor, Murphy the postal carrier, Murphy the stone mason and Murphy the teacher. As a matter of fact, I, too, am Murphy, Murphy the farmer."

The German gets an idea.

"The weather could change by Tuesday," he says.

"Aye," says the farmer, "you'll be wanting Murphy the spy."

I just spoke to Vixdad.  He said the batter and deep frying wasn't done in Coventry but may be a regional variation on the meal.  He says a traditional chip butty would basically be hot steak fries between thickly cut pieces of buttered bread.  He also says now he wants one.



And he says the best chips are deep fried in "beef drippings"



and he really wants one.

Last night's "American Idol":


[move=left,scroll,6,transparent,100%]SPOILER?                  SPOILER?             SPOILER?[/move]

Wow!  What a letdown.  An amazing catalog to work from, and such mediocrity with only a couple of exceptions.

Best of the evening:  Katherine.
Worst of the evening: So many to choose from, including the one all the judges raved over at the end.  I detested Chris' song.  I hate it that he feels he has to sling a microphone stand around the stage in order to sing a song that Simon will praise.  I detest that Simon believes that equates to "real world" singing.  Simon likes muscular, grunting young men who act angry and tough, it seems.  That rather puts his nasty crack to Jay Leno about Ryan Seacrest to the test (he claimed he had nothing against homosexuals being on the show, and that his tolerance of Ryan ought to be proof. He then chuckled and said it was a joke).

They all cleaned up pretty nicely, I thought.  Bucky needs to get a better cut...but he looked better BY MILES.

Maybe it was first-night jitters, but only Katherine really lit the place up.  When Chris came on, I could tell he was going to deliver something I couldn't relate to.  

That's me.  And I vote.  And I vote often.  It will be interesting to see who gets voted off.

My bet:  Kevin is gone!

As seen in a cat's diary:

Day 183 of my captivity...
My captors continued to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects. They dine lavishly on fresh succulent meat, while I am forced to eat dry, flavorless morsels.
 
The only thing that keeps me going is the hope of escape, and the mild satisfaction I get from clawing the furniture.

Tomorrow I may eat another house plant.

Day 184 of my captivity..
Today my attempt to kill my captors by weaving around their feet while they were walking almost succeeded - must try this at the top of the stairs.

In an attempt to disgust and repulse these vile oppressors, I once again induced myself to vomit on their new carpet-must try this on their bed.

Decapitated a mouse and brought them the headless body in an attempt to make them aware of what I am capable of, and to try to strike fear in their hearts. They only cooed and condescended about what a good little cat I was.
     Hmmm...not working according to plan...

There was some sort of gathering of their accomplices.  I was placed in solitary throughout the event. However, I could hear the noise and smell the food. More important, I overheard that my confinement was due to my powers of inducing "allergies"; Must learn what this is and consider how to use it to my advantage.

I am convinced the other captives are flunkies and may be snitches.  The dog is routinely released and seems more than happy to return. He is obviously a half-wit. The bird, on the other hand, has got to be an informant and speaks with them  regularly. I am certain he reports my every move. Due to his current placement in the metal room, his safety is assured.  But I can wait, it is only a matter of time...

DR Jose,  I have to say again that it is so wonderful to hear about your stories of your dream coming true with Lestat etc. How wonderful and exciting for you. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Cillaliz took the words right out of my mouth! Jose, I just think it is wonderful and I am so happy for you...now my dream is to come to New York and see Lestat featuring Jose at the piano!

Oh, dear, so many boxed DVD sets coming out next week:
the third round of Shirley Temple films, the Busby Berkeley set, and then TV sets of GIDGET, BEWITCHED (season 3), HUFF, FLYING NUN (season 1).

And then Paramount is offering a new STALAG 17 and that TEN COMMANDMENTS set we talked about the other day.

Plus new releases like CAPOTE and CHICKEN LITTLE.

I'll be picking and choosing from this lot.

I will certainly be getting the Shirley Temple films...maybe THE FLYING NUN....gosh but I loved that show a lot when I was a kid.

Well I am watching WALK THE LINE again....this time of DVD.  And Joaquin did a fine job....Reese of course did as well.

It is just a leisurely film...to say the least....slow...  But I am enjoying it again.

AND the DVD of THE SHAGGY DOG is very good.  The commentary by Kevin Corcoran, Tim Considine, Tom Kirk, and Roberta Shore is a lot of fun to listen to....they are all together watching the film and commenting on it.

There is a short extra called The Kids of THE SHAGGY DOG that has current interviews (copyrighted in 2004 - where has it been?  Was it a Disney Channel interview?) - haven't watched the colorized version which is about 10 minutes shorter.  And a short collection of clips and memories of Fred MacMurray by the cast and others from THE HAPPIEST MILLIONAIRE including Mr Dick Sherman.

A nice disc!

Which reminds me, did anyone else see any of the Spy Kids movies?  Ricardo Monteban plays the wheelchairbound grandfather. At some point he strokes his chair and announces it is made with "fine corinthian leather"

My thoughts on last night's AMERICAN IDOL.

.
.
.


I was also a bit letdown.  Most of the show was not that interesting. And I'm honestly not sure who will go home. I sort of suspect that Kevin will be bottom three. But others who i thought would go next (melissa, bucky ...) did get decent reviews from the judges. So i'm really not sure.

I was sort of disappointed that they were so harsh on kellie. I didn't think she was that bad.

Btw, is Stevie Wonder's music modern. I think of it as much older than that.

There wasn't really anyone i loved. Although it was nice to see them flip over katharine (one of my 2 favorite women).
Title: Re:RELAXATION TIME
Post by: Jennifer on March 15, 2006, 10:02:22 AM
And I wrote that about Kevin (American Idol) before seeing what DR RLP wrote.

I really don't know that he'll go. But I'd imagine he has to be bottom 3 (although not even sure if they are doing bottom 2 or 3).

What did you guys think about it being a TBC (to be continued) vs a non-elimination?  I was actually happy.  I didn't think there were enough tasks to do.  And the best teams (like the hippies) got bad cab drivers and could have finished last (they ended up being super lucky and finding the clue in the doll).

I was surprised however that they didn't show us the order they finished last night (just first). I guess they will save that till next week.

But besides the bunching (having everyone on the same flight sort of made things dull), I thought it was a fun show. Funny how the only people who didn't get lost to the bus washing place were the 2 teams who made huge mistakes (the dannis and the mom/daughter).

I was disappointed 2 of my favorite teams (mojo and dating nerds) got LOST in the same cab. Too funny.

Can't wait till next week. I'm liking most of the teams. Although i could do without the grannies and the man who yells at his wife.

If you don't know why it is called Canadian bacon, I'm sure I don't know either. I just assumed it was a Canadian thing. It's origin may be so old though, like at the dawn of cured meats in North America.

You will note the word "left" is in the command.  You can change "left" to "right"...or "Up" or "down" to get the desired end result.

I'm okay with TAR last night, as well.  I was prepared for it when they showed Phil with no Russian person standing beside him doing something Russian.  

I was sort of surprised by all the taxi cab sharing.  And while I was surprised by the old folks getting to be in second place for a while, I had to smack my head in frustration when the old guy couldn't immediately find one of the clues when he was in the water.  Oy!

And as far as the dentist is concerned, for a guy with such a big mouth he doesn't have much of  a clue most of the time.  He and his wife won't make it to the final six.

LOL.

I was wondering the same thing, especially in light of yesterday's revelation that DR Jennifer is unfamiliar with "Commonwealth Day."

However (from the internet):

"Most bacon consumed in the UK is back bacon (also called short back bacon). The cut comes from the loin in the middle of the back of the animal. It is a lean meaty cut of bacon, with relatively less fat compared to other cuts.

"Back bacon is known as Canadian bacon in the United States but not in Canada, where it is simply called back bacon. In Canada it is traditionally unsmoked back bacon that has been sweet pickle cured and coated in yellow cornmeal. This variation is also known as peameal bacon, because in times past a mixture of ground yellow peas was used for coating to improve curing and shelf-life. The "Canadian" bacon sold in the United States is plain lean back bacon."

Quebec! Well that explains it.  That's not Canada, that's France!    ;D

DR Matt H, I love Harvey's music a lot, and adore him as a person.  I'm so flattered to be on his Christmas card and "special" list, which includes things like his "forty fingers of Harvey Schmidt" CD, which Kritzerland released.  Don't you thnk it's a lot of fun?

I always thought Goodspeedshould have brought their production of THE HAPPY TIME in to New York, but they needed a bigger leading man than Joe Masiell.

I bought the original cast album (there apparently have been no others.) ON THE TWENTIETH CENTURY CD yesterday, at Barnes and Noble in Westlake Village. Boy, that Cy Coleman could spin tune, couldn't he. A very young Kevin Kline is on said cast album - in a role that pretty much put him on the map. And Imogen Coca has a great turn in REPENT! Actually, I like that song so much, I may start using it. Comden and Green at their hilarious best!

I love On the Twentieth Century!  Up until a few years ago, there was an annual AIDS benefit here in Olympia that I performed in.  One year, I actually sang "Repent" (with tongue planted firmly in cheek, of course) and got a great round of applause (not a standing ovation, but still quite respectable).

My VCR is working now so I am no longer crabby.

But I have decided to invest in a DVD recorder/vhs combo that I can easily (more easily then on the computer) transfer my video tapes to DVD. It won't have all the nifty editing capabilities of doing it via the computer, but by golly at least I should work better ....(my ability to transfer from VHS to DVD  via my computer has not worked ever since Best Buy replaced the dvd burner).

Ready to rock
GP set to host the world with women’s curling championships

The long wait is over for organizers, volunteers and curling fans as the 2006 Ford World Women’s Curling Championships is set to hit the ice at the Canada Games Arena.

It’s been about 16 months since Grande Prairie’s bid to host the international event was accepted by the Canadian Curling Association and no doubt a huge amount of work has gone on behind the scenes since then.

From the set-up of committees to the recruitment of volunteers and the sale of ticket packages, as well as other assorted odds and ends, it’s been a hectic time for everyone involved and the work isn’t quite over yet.

But with teams now arriving and the Canada Games Arena all decked out in Ford World Women’s Curling Championships logos and memorabilia, the atmosphere of the event is quickly reaching a whole new level.

The international flavour of the event adds a certain something for a city that has already successfully hosted other events on the national and provincial stages.

Grande Prairie was certainly on the map before this event came along but the world women’s curling championships will undoubtedly help to make the Swan City stand out just a little more when it comes to awareness on a global scale.

But the long-term benefits of hosting the event can be talked about later.

This week, and all of next week until the final is played a week from Sunday, is about putting on the best show possible.

That doesn’t mean just the people directly involved in staging the championship.

It will obviously involve hoteliers, restaurateurs, merchants, cab drivers, and anyone else who will have a chance to meet the acquaintance of some of the visitors to our city.

It may also involve you, whether you are a spectator, or just someone who happens to bump into a visitor from, say, China, or Norway or Italy or Sweden or any of the other 12 nations represented in the event.

It’s going to be a time to remember for Grande Prairians and, hopefully, for those paying a visit for the occasion.

Our impeccable track record of hosting other events, such as the 1995 Canada Winter Games and the 2004 Royal Bank Cup, gives us good reason to expect a memorable – and successful – week.

So today we bid a hearty welcome to all visitors, but most especially the curlers themselves.

They, too, are here to put on a show as this year’s best in women’s curling prepare to hit the hack.


This is the city where Vixdad's parents, nephew, sister and her husband live

NEW DELHI - At first glance the movie seems like just another Bollywood film: It has the disco-beat songs, the hip-swivelling dance number and the hero and heroine cavorting in the rain in drenched revealing clothes.


But Aisa Kyon Hota Hai? or Why Does This Happen? is a unique first. The newly released feature film, which centres around the twin themes of safe sex and inter-religious harmony, was produced by the Roman Catholic Church in India.


Rev. Dominic Emmanuel, the film's scriptwriter and the spokesman for the New Delhi archdiocese, agreed that it's not the church's normal way of entertaining its flock.


''It is all about using a medium, in this case film, which is not only the most popular in India, but also available to people across the country,'' Emmanuel said.


Increasingly concerned about changing values in Indian society, especially among young people, the Roman Catholic Church is hoping to reinforce the message that long-term relationships and commitment can curb the spread of HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.


''We did not want to sound preachy. A whole film on HIV would be too boring. At the same time we wanted to hold the attention of the audience,'' said Emmanuel, who first thought about doing a television show, but ended up deciding a movie would be more effective.


With 5.13 million cases, India ranks second only to South Africa in terms of the number of people infected with HIV.


People infected with the virus face any number of prejudices, from difficulty getting into schools to hospitals refusing to treat them.


The Hindi-language film opened in New Delhi cinemas in late February and has seen a ''fairly good response,'' Emmanuel said.


It was funded in part by UNICEF and Christian aid groups such as Catholic Relief Services.

I agree with you, DR Jennifer. I thought Kellie got the short end of the stick last night. She sang the song simply, purely, and with feeling. It's not her fault the song wasn't built for runs and melisma all over the place. Chris was overpraised, and, again, Elliott's purity of tone seems to mean nothing.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who "didn't get it" last night. I really blame the music. The singers all have talent. The songs were just not appropriate.

Why is the sky blue?

The blue color of the sky is due to Rayleigh scattering. As light moves through the atmosphere, most of the longer wavelengths pass straight through. Little of the red, orange and yellow light is affected by the air.

However, much of the shorter wavelength light is absorbed by the gas molecules. The absorbed blue light is then radiated in different directions. It gets scattered all around the sky. Whichever direction you look, some of this scattered blue light reaches you. Since you see the blue light from everywhere overhead, the sky looks blue.

As you look closer to the horizon, the sky appears much paler in color. To reach you, the scattered blue light must pass through more air. Some of it gets scattered away again in other directions. Less blue light reaches your eyes. The color of the sky near the horizon appears paler or white.

On Earth, the sun appears yellow. If you were out in space, or on the moon, the sun would look white. In space, there is no atmosphere to scatter the sun's light. On Earth, some of the shorter wavelength light (the blues and violets) are removed from the direct rays of the sun by scattering. The remaining colors together appear yellow.

Also, out in space, the sky looks dark and black, instead of blue. This is because there is no atmosphere. There is no scattered light to reach your eyes.

I wonder what will be for dinner?

I'm still full from lunch.  Eight of us went ot Oakland's Chinatown to Shan Dong and had a feast....Shan Dong chicken, braised green beans and shrimp, braised green beans and chicken, szechuan eggplant, hand made noodles in a peanut sauce, and dumplings.

YUM.

Well I am watching WALK THE LINE again....this time of DVD.  And Joaquin did a fine job....Reese of course did as well.

It is just a leisurely film...to say the least....slow...  But I am enjoying it again.

AND the DVD of THE SHAGGY DOG is very good.  The commentary by Kevin Corcoran, Tim Considine, Tom Kirk, and Roberta Shore is a lot of fun to listen to....they are all together watching the film and commenting on it.

There is a short extra called The Kids of THE SHAGGY DOG that has current interviews (copyrighted in 2004 - where has it been?  Was it a Disney Channel interview?) - haven't watched the colorized version which is about 10 minutes shorter.  And a short collection of clips and memories of Fred MacMurray by the cast and others from THE HAPPIEST MILLIONAIRE including Mr Dick Sherman.

A nice disc!  


Does it happen to say what Mr. Considine has been doing for all these years since he left MY THREE SONS?

Regarding "Commonwealth Day," I provided a link yesterday that discussed then-Premiere Trudeau signing the observance into law in 1976.

I know that Quebec has considered itself a separate entity from the rest of Canada to the point of trying to secede, so perhaps you guys don't really consider yourselves "Canadian"?

:D

I'm sure you didn't mean to be insulting, but what you wrote actually was insulting.  There are some people in Quebec who believe in separatism, but not most.  And especially not 99% of English speaking people here.

All I said is that the day was not a holiday anybody here celebrates. There are many Canadian holidays that we do celebrate (Canada Day, Victoria Day...). But the one you mentioned is not.  Although as I said I cannot speak for every province. Perhaps there are some that consider it a holiday, although I have not heard of any.

I will have to resend you my home phone number because you should have got the answering machine/service --what ever it is that Vontage does.  I will call you back but I can’t use the phones right now—I’m expecting an important phone call and am not sure which number they will use.  Just please let me know when it’s ok to call tomorrow.

Jennifer, I'm just trying to have fun with you on the subject...certainly not trying to tick off the Quebeçois population.

But, about "Commonwealth Day" (http://www.craigmarlatt.com/canada/symbols_facts&lists/commonwealth_day.html), it was my impression you had never heard of it, especially since you wrote:

"I don't know if any other parts of the country celebrate this day, but i have never even heard of it."

According to the linked article, the day was not a traditional "holiday" but a day when ALL schools would extol the virtues of being a member of the Commonwealth.  This supposedly -- allegedly -- has been going on in schools since 1977.

DR Matt H, I love Harvey's music a lot, and adore him as a person.  I'm so flattered to be on his Christmas card and "special" list, which includes things like his "forty fingers of Harvey Schmidt" CD, which Kritzerland released.  Don't you thnk it's a lot of fun?
I didn't word this very well, and I've been pondering this since I posted it.  Harvey sent as a Christmas card a couple of years ago a CD of himself playing his songs.  Harvey plays BIG piano, and it's like he has twenty fingers on each hand.  When Kritzerland released the disc commercially I dfidn't purchase it since I already had it, but I am curious about whether the notes are the same.  I'm assuming that DR Matt and others on the site have purchased it and are enjoying it.  It's a lot of fun.

I'm very glad to hear that, Ginny!  I also sang with Snake Eyes and occasionally with Chuck E Baby and the All Stars. So if you were roaming the bars at night, you may have met me there

LOL - we had a toddler/pre-schooler and I have an overly protective mother, so we didn't do much bar-hopping.

Hello DR Ron.

My day so far has been spent in attempting to clean and transfer old Homer & Jethro recordings to CD.

I never owned a single H&J recording, but I heard them every morning on Moon Mullins' country-western radio program on WPFB which my Father listened to every day.  My uncle lived next door to Moon.

Hootenanny a Go Go?  Sounds like a Sam Katzman/Clover production for Columbia or MGM....probably a rewrite of Don't Knock the Twist, which was a rewrite of Don't Knock the Rock.

The ORIGINAL Shaggy Dog....fine DVD release this week!

Mr Tim Considine's present occupation wasn't mentioned, but I do know that he has a great interest in racing and I think owns a few race cars or teams....or maybe he just follows the circuit.  His interest in cars was mentioned, he is still great friends with Norman Woo Woo Grabowski who restores cars in West Virginia.

Just watched BE COOL with lots of LA locations that I knew ALL about because of Mr BK's columns and his posts and those of former LA-ite DR CP.  And seeing The Rock play a gay body guard whose bulb is just slightly dimmer than Paris Hilton's was very funny.  One of the added scenes was Elliot's (The Rock) music video to Loretta Lynn's song "You ain't Woman Enough to Take My Man."

And he auditions for John Travolta by doing a monolog from the cheerleading movie BRING IT ON....playing both girls' parts....LOL.

A ventriloquist was killing the audience with his act....they loved him.  He was telling a series of blonde jokes and the audience was eating it up.

Suddenly in the middle of the room, a young blonde woman stood up on her table and yelled:  "Stop it.  Just stop it.  You are objectifying a human being because of the color of her hair.  This is prejudice and it must stop.  You should be ashamed of yourself."

The audience got very quiet, and the ventriloquist bowed his head slightly.  After a moment he said:  "I'm very sorry, young lady, you are correct."

And the blonde said:  "You shut up.  I'm not talking to you.  I'm talking to the short guy sitting on your lap."

I'm sure you didn't mean to be insulting, but what you wrote actually was insulting.  There are some people in Quebec who believe in separatism, but not most.  And especially not 99% of English speaking people here.

All I said is that the day was not a holiday anybody here celebrates. There are many Canadian holidays that we do celebrate (Canada Day, Victoria Day...). But the one you mentioned is not.  Although as I said I cannot speak for every province. Perhaps there are some that consider it a holiday, although I have not heard of any.

Sorry if you took my comment aboiut Quebec being France as an insult, it was meant as a good natured joke.  I apologize very much for my ignorance in how this would be perceived by you.  I never intended to9 insult you aor hurt your feelings in anyway

In honor of vixmom's 5555th post, check out what happens in the year 5555:


In the year 2525
If man is still alive
If woman can survive
They may find........

In the year 3535
Ain't gonna need to tell the truth, tell no lies
Everything you think, do, or say
Is in the pill you took today

In the year 4545
Ain't gonna need your teeth, won't need your eyes
You won't find a thing to chew
Nobody's gonna look at you

In the year 5555
Your arms are hanging limp at your sides
Your legs got nothing to do
Some machine, doing that for you

In the year 6565
Ain't gonna need no husband, won't need no wife
You'll pick your son, pick your daughter too
From the bottom of a long glass tube

In the year 7510
If God's a comin' he ought to make it by then
Maybe he'll look around himself and say
``Guess it's time for the Judgement day''

In the year 8510
God's gonna shake his mighty head
He'll either say ``I'm pleased where man has been''
Or tear it down and start again

In the year 9595
I'm kinda wondering if man's gonna be alive
He's taken everything this old earth can give
And he ain't put back nothing...

Now it's been 10,000 years
Man has cried a billion tears
For what he never knew
Now man's reign is through
But through the eternal night
The twinkling of starlight
So very far away
Maybe it's only yesterday...

In the year 2525
If man is still alive
If woman can survive
They may find.......

You know it's hard out here for a pimp (you ain't knowin)
When he tryin to get this money for the rent (you ain't knowin)
For the Cadillacs and gas money spent (you ain't knowin)

And INVASION was gripping from begiining to end. I'm going to miss this show now off for at least the next month while THE EVIDENCE takes over this time period.

I'm surprised actually that ABC is trying another procedural here. EYES, a wonderful and innovative series, didn't draw flies in the same spot last year. I guess ABC is hedging its bets by only scheduling four episodes for the time being.

Since NBC is moving LAW & ORDER up an hour to 9 p.m., THE EVIDENCE will be facing a new NBC show in THE HEIST, so maybe that's why ABC is trying a procedural in that spot.

The AMERICAN IDOL results - - - - - -

Just goes to show that NO ONE is safe. If you're a fan and want to keep the singer around, you have to vote. I have to admit I was expecting fully Bucky in the bottom three and maybe even going home. I never would have thought Ace was so close to leaving.

Simon was right, however. It should serve to him as a wake-up call to pick better songs and sing with more authority, and a wake up call to his fans to call during the entire two hour voting period.

I remember COnstantine was placed in the bottom TWO fairly early last season that shocked a lot of people and then he was safe for several weeks in a row.

Happy to bring it to your attention, MattH.  Perhaps a little visit to www.kritzerland.com is in order - you can hear samples from it and other releases.  In case you somehow missed it, Kritzerland is a new record label :-)

Whew!  I think I made record time!  Reading thirteen and a half pages of posts in about 23 minutes!

-I guess those speed-reading classes we took as part of our AP English class in high school have paid off!

And now...

DR Cillaliz - As for the whole diet and exercise bit... I actually took two weeks to get my diet under control before starting my exercise regime.  Yes, getting motivated to exercise is/was hard, but finding the will power to resist that piece of cake or that chocolate bar was - and still is - even harder.  This also allowed to concentrate on just one aspect of "getting healthy", and eased the potential frustration factor.

*Just remember, the once you do start exercising more, you may have to start eating more - well, at least more frequently in order to properly feed your muscles post-workout, as well as keeping your blood sugar levels consistent through the day.

And a big Thank You to everyone for their continued well wishes and support regarding Lestat and my "dream".  I really am still giddy about the whole shebang.  I was walking around the Village earlier tonight when my friend, James, turned to me and said, "Twelve hours from now, you will be an official Broadway pit musician."

:D

Nice mail day.  The "Man of La Mancha" score arrived, a student wants to work of some things from that show and the vocal selections are lacking.  Also in the mail was an eBay auction won... "Porgy and Bess" - The Houston Grand Opera recording, one that many people here have reccommended and I finally found it on eBay, it's all very exciting.

3rd dress rehearsal for "Aida" tonight.  I think I'm close to having my keyboard button pushing choreography down.  One of these days I'll grow up and get something that's more automatic.  It's a fun book to play, lots of great string lines.  

DR Matthew - What type of keyboard are you using?  Do you know if you're able to do "foot patching" - programming a switch pedal to advance the patch setting.  It does take a few extra keystrokes, but if you set up a "template patch", then just copy that to all the "locations", all you have to do is edit the sound patches.

Make sense?

As for the Lestat pit arrangement...

16 players will be in the main pit.  Three of us will up on the seventh floor of The Palace (in an unused dressing room).  We will be able to see the conductor via a video monitor.  We will also have an audio feed from the soundboard in order to hear the rest of the pit.  I'm not sure we'll each have individual mixing boards and headphones - which is what was used with Mamma Mia! and Aida.  And for communication purposes, there will be a headset/clearcom to communicate with the conductor and stage management.

This, alas, has been sort of a common arrangement lately.  I remember the strings for The Who's Tommy were actually in another building.  Oh, and the rest of the pit for the revival of Follies was also in "another room" - since five players could only fit in the pit there.

Oh, and when Mamma Mia! was in DC last spring, the drummer and bass player were backstage.  It was always fun right before we started... The conductor would get on the headset, "Drew (bass player) are you back there?"  "Bobby (drummer) are you back there?"  And each of them would answer with some sort of musical lick.

:)

Oh, as for favorite Jones & Schmidt song... Basically everything in I Do! I Do!.  I'm particularly fond of "When The Kids Get Married" and "What Is A Woman?".

*When I was in high school, my Drama/English teach and his wife, Michael and Valerie Garcia, performed in I Do! I Do! as a special fund-raiser for the drama program.  They did one weekend of the show.  It really was a great production - and wonderful experience all around.  And I could tell that having an actual married couple play Michael and Agnes added that "certain something" to the proceedings.  -Oh, and they used the two-piano and percussion arrangement of the orchestration.

Actually, DR DakotaCelt, you use the marquee command for each sentence.

[move=left,scroll,6,transparent,100%][/move]

You will note the word "left" is in the command.  You can change "left" to "right"...or "Up" or "down" to get the desired end result.

But waving a wand never hurts, either.

Thank you ron!!

OK - I really must get to bed now...

Thankfully, rehearsal is just from nine to Noon tomorrow... And then I have nothing else the rest of the day.   I suspect a nap will occupy part of my afternoon.  :)

Goodnight.

Well I most definitely live in Canada! :)

All I am telling you guys is what I know.  What we call bacon here is the same thing you call bacon in the US.  And as for Commonwealth Day, it is most definitely not a holiday celebrated here.  There is a chance it is celebrated in other provinces.  But as I said I have not heard of it.  And when I did a search on "commonwealth day" it showed that it is a holiday in the UK.  Perhaps technically since Queen Elizabeth is our queen, then i suppose it is our holiday too.  But it's not one celebrated at all, at least not in Quebec.

Jennifer, I am confused...

Dominion day is July 1, when is commonwealth Day?

I have rellies in SK! have you been to Banff??

The blue color of the sky is due to Rayleigh scattering. As light moves through the atmosphere, most of the longer wavelengths pass straight through. Little of the red, orange and yellow light is affected by the air.

However, much of the shorter wavelength light is absorbed by the gas molecules. The absorbed blue light is then radiated in different directions. It gets scattered all around the sky. Whichever direction you look, some of this scattered blue light reaches you. Since you see the blue light from everywhere overhead, the sky looks blue.

As you look closer to the horizon, the sky appears much paler in color. To reach you, the scattered blue light must pass through more air. Some of it gets scattered away again in other directions. Less blue light reaches your eyes. The color of the sky near the horizon appears paler or white.

On Earth, the sun appears yellow. If you were out in space, or on the moon, the sun would look white. In space, there is no atmosphere to scatter the sun's light. On Earth, some of the shorter wavelength light (the blues and violets) are removed from the direct rays of the sun by scattering. The remaining colors together appear yellow.

Also, out in space, the sky looks dark and black, instead of blue. This is because there is no atmosphere. There is no scattered light to reach your eyes.



 



That is what that was flying thought the sky on my drime north from Fargo!!!

You Might have warmed me Ron... I nearly went in the ditch!!  LOL!!!

Well I don't wish Alzheimer's on anyone, not even him.  

Carol. Man this was a long time ago - we're talking 15-20 years ago. If she was his reporter. clerk  or secretary I'm sure I did.  I met a lot of the court staff when I was a law clerk/bailiff (ok they called us law trained bailiff's - we called ourselves law clerks) and after I became a public defender I always got to know the staff.

I knew Judge Ellis' staff the best (she was Budzyn then Ellis while I was there).  

I have several relatives that have died of Alzheimers. it si a slow death.

Wednesday greetings.  I have now worked myself into a total funk over this job thing - it's been advertised on at least 2 statewide professional websites and our very own library website, so I'm competing for my job in what could amount to a worldwide search.

Starting at 9:01pm EST, I'm off for 5 and a half days and will try not to think about it (much).  I'll be working at the AAUW used book sale, getting DS Rob home from college, throwing a taco party for a bunch of relatives Sunday evening, and worrying about my husband who takes off on a road trip tomorrow.

DR Ginny, you are simply the best for the position!

He's going to Eau Claire, Wisconsin, to a men's glee club conference in which the Miami University club is participating along with groups from lots of other colleges and some professional groups.

I hope it is not this weekend... There is a storm in that area tonight...


Also get well vibes bor Harvey Schmidt
