We don't have anything in the VRC or DVD although we may finally begin to watch Angels in America. Anthony's mom taped it when it was originally broadcast and it has been sitting (I know it's a LONG time ago) waiting to be watched. It's a long one though and you don't just jump into AIA. Perhaps this weekend we will watch Part I. Who knows?

Some of the reviews are in for Entertaining Mr. Sloane, the Roundabout's next entry (Off-Broadway) in their season. The reviews are decidedly mixed. Oh, well. Not surprised. Every so often Roundabout hits a home run but 9 times out of 10 their productions are stuck in the middle, ranging from truly embarrassing (The Women) to just plain mediocre (not walk out at intermission bad, just kind of tedious).

Yesterday while I was shopping, I decided to buy new pillows since the ones I had were NOT comfortable.  So I bought two JUMBO flannel pillows.  And then I bought two new pillowcases.

And then I decided I would also buy new sheets, and then I bought a comforter and a new blanket.  So now I am sleeping ALL new for the first time in many years.  Mostly mint green, although the sheets are percale with some kind of white flower stitching.  Very pretty - and comfortable.

I have been very errant, and quite truant.  And I have no regrets.  Regrets are pricey, so I don't bother with 'em.

I have been quite busy at work.  One of my co-workers, a very large Greek named Mike, is on medical leave, as he has had his shoulder replaced.  This is after having had both hips replaced prior to my meeting him.  Nice that he has a hobby.  Anyway, we're one regular cashier short, but we're also training the staff for a new store that's opening both nearby and soon.  I've been training a young fellow named Mike.  There's a lot of Mikes around here, for some reason.  In any case, like I said, busy at work.

And der Brucer is itching to add to the family again.  We've been taking puppy pix for him to post at the rescue website.  And he's been fishing for a relocate-the-pooch drive.  What he really wants is for us to foster another dog.  The house feels empty without Peggy.

Yesterday was my day off.  I spent much of it sleeping.

And that's where I've been.

Everything You Need to Know About Saint Patrick's Day
Why green? Why shamrocks? Who's Saint Patrick? Read our list and find out everything you need to know to understand what the merriment is about. Oh, and don't forget to wear green on Saint Patrick's Day to avoid the traditional pinch!


1. Saint Patrick
Saint Patrick, known as the Apostle of Ireland, was a high-ranking Christian clergyman. His legendary use of the shamrock as an illustration of the Trinity led to its adoption as Ireland's national symbol.


2. Ireland
Ireland was Christianized by Saint Patrick in the 5th century. He and his successors founded churches and monasteries that became centers of Christian art and refinement. Saint Patrick's Day is the most important national holiday in Ireland.


3. Feast Day
Saint Patrick's Day, March 17, is the traditional feast day of Ireland's patron saint. In the United States, Saint Patrick's Day has evolved into a celebration of Irish American heritage. Many Irish American communities hold parades, with celebrants dressed in green to symbolize the lush Irish landscape. Some people take it a bit further and dye their hair and food green, and some communities (such as Chicago) go so far as to pour green dye into rivers, lakes, and other bodies of water.


4. Shamrocks
Shamrocks have been considered good-luck symbols by the Irish since early times, and shamrocks or various representations of the plant are frequently worn on Saint Patrick's Day. The hop clover is widely accepted as the original shamrock picked by Saint Patrick. The name shamrock comes from the Irish Seamrog, which means "little clover."


5. Leprechauns
In Irish folklore, leprechauns (Old Irish for "small bodies") are mischievous little old men. These elves, who work as cobblers, are believed to know where gold is hidden.


6. Rainbows
Does tracking down a leprechaun and his hidden pot of gold sound improbable at best? Many people believe that the leprechaun keeps his gold at the end of a rainbow. Have you ever seen the end of a rainbow? Interestingly, one of the definitions of rainbow is "a goal, hope, or ideal that is unlikely to be achieved or realized."

I've been listening to Irish tenor Frank Patterson, who was a dear friend, and I still mourn his passing.  I met him in the late 1980s after he'd been in John Houston's beautiful film THE DEAD (why isn't that on DVD?).  He, his lovely wife Eile, and their son had a house in Bronxville, and every year Frank produced a St Patrick's Day show at Radio City on the Saturday before March 17.  I think I scored, over all, around 5 of them.  There were clog dancers, harpists, pipers, Eile's brother-in-law was a Dublin comedian who hosted, performers came from all over the east coast.  Frank had a couple of sets, accompanied by Eile on harp or piano and the band.  They were gloriously tacky and a lot of fun.

I still get an ASCAP royalty every year from Frank's "America the Beautiful," which is on one of his television programs they still play on PBS.  Here's to Frank!  I still miss you.

Happy St. Pat's to all our Irish-derived pals!

My ex- is half Irish - the silly, funny, vengeful boil-yer-enemies-in-oil, dark and depressed, prankster, happy-go-lucky half. We both did the Theatricum Botanicum Shakespeare audition yesterday - Actors Equity day (about six people showed up...) - today is non-Equity day.

I did a cobbled together monologue from two Maria scenes. They LAUGHED and LAUGHED through the whole thing!!! Jeez, I love it when that happens. Then they asked me to sing something a capella - oy - I sang a verse of Greensleeves, which was the only quasi-Elizabethan tune that came to mind... (of course, after the fact, wads of great John Dowland songs came streaming in...). Then they asked for something serious - so I gave 'em my wacky ol' Queen Margaret. That stopped 'em in their tracks. Wet blanket, anyone?

Chas did a bit of Iago. His speaking voice is one of the great beauties of all time. Just glorious. And having been a very great character baritone for 20 years in the international opera scene, well, let's just say his broad acting style is ideally-suited to Shakespeare. (my Shakespeare is more like a sit-com. Or a game-show...).

Anyway, the setting is lovely - in the lovely woods of Topanga Canyon, on a little stream. A delightful little theater done in authentic Shakespearean style, for outdoor summer shows. A semi-circle of tiered benches. Walkways and gardens and benches. Lovely. I'd love to work there.

I'll will review my opinion after tonight's viewing.  You have to understand that after watching this film through shoddy, cropped and faded prints on broadcast TV over the years, anything would have been a significant improvement.  The first time I watched the DVD, I found the color and crispness mesmerizingly eye catching.  

The DVD I have is the initial release from a few years back and not the more recent collector's edition.

I'll will review my opinion after tonight's viewing.  You have to understand that after watching this film through shoddy, cropped and faded prints on broadcast TV over the years, anything would have been a significant improvement.  The first time I watched the DVD, I found the color and crispness mesmerizingly eye catching.  

The DVD I have is the initial release from a few years back and not the more recent collector's edition.

I do have the collector's edition and I'll be glad to tell you all what I thought after I watch it.

Top of the marnin' to ye!

Well, I did remember before I left for work, so I am wearing olive pants, Lincoln green shirt, neon Kelly green tie with shamrocks on it (my once-a-year tie), olive drab shoes, and a patterned red and green sweater.

I did forgo the neon green socks.

But my CD player at work has the York Theatre production of Lucky Stiff with Malcolm Getz.  I should have remembered to bring in the OBC of Juno.

What we really need is a CD of Donnybrook, that's what we really need.

Wisha wurra, wisha wurra,
What we haven't go we'll get...

VCR has blank tape to record Bill Maher tonight.  Now he's Irish, although he had the Prime Minister or something of Ireland on his show last fall, and she chided him for pronouncing his name "Marr" instead of "Mah-her".

Sorry to say that both Quiet Man DVDs are appallingly bad, image-wise - soft, verging on out-of-focus and looking nothing like that gloriously photographed film should look.  One hears rumors of a new DVD coming from Paramount, who now owns the Republic library.

I got my driver's licence renewal (payment) form today. In it there is a link to a driver's test. I thought I would try this and got the first two wrong. :(

I thought others might like to test themselves.

http://www.saaq.gouv.qc.ca/saaqclic/en/public/driving_knowledge/quiz.html

Btw, the first question had to do with the yellow school sign. Although I said it was for a school and the correct answer was for a school/and or crosswalk.

And the second said if a car to the left of you is trying to pass you, should you speed up, stay same speed or slow down a bit.  Now I would slow down. But I thought the correct answer would probably be to stay the same. BUt it wasn't! :(

I'll say, a strange man is a marvel, with his mighty talk; but what's
a squabble in your back-yard, and the blow of a loy, have taught me that
there's a great gap between a gallous story and a dirty deed.

When I was in high school, a few of us went to the local "art theatre" (= foreign films) in Denver to see Peter Sellers in Heavens Above.

When we got there, we found that they had a sneak preview of The Playboy of the Western World with Siobhan McKenna before the Peter Sellers.  

My friends found it boring.  As for me, after the first half hour it took before I could understand a word of the dialogue (real Irish dialect, as opposed to movie dialect), I thought it was a lovely film, a lovely film.

So in college I checked out a recording from the library of Siobhan doing the play, and I taped it on my old Wollensack.  Ah, for recordings of plays!  I used to drift to sleep listening to them.

So I can hear Siobhan McKenna's voice clear as day:

Oh my grief,
I've lost him surely.  I've lost the only Playboy of the Western World.

Q: If you come across a driver who behaves selfishly or aggressively you must:

A. Show him you do not appreciate his behavior by  hooting the horn.

B.  attempt to drive up to the other vehicle to have a few words with the driver.

C.  stay calm and in control of the vehicle at all times.

A. Sound the horn in one long continous blast lasting several minutes

B. Drive within inches of his rear bumper, if after dark, turn on your "brights"

I tried the 50-question test...did great until it came to the question about what a bus must do when approaching a level crossing (i.e. a railroad crossing that is level).

It said nothing about a barrier being down or a train coming, so I best-guessed that the bus should slow down and proceed cautiously.

Nope.  The bus, by law, must STOP.  No matter what...it must STOP.  

Don't know if cars must stop, too....so, there's probably a lot of buses that really do just slow down and proceed with caution, 'cause you know other drivers are gonna flip out when a bus stops at a railroad crossing when there's no train coming and no barriers down.

:D

I've been listening to Irish tenor Frank Patterson, who was a dear friend, and I still mourn his passing.  I met him in the late 1980s after he'd been in John Houston's beautiful film THE DEAD (why isn't that on DVD?).  He, his lovely wife Eile, and their son had a house in Bronxville, and every year Frank produced a St Patrick's Day show at Radio City on the Saturday before March 17.  I think I scored, over all, around 5 of them.  There were clog dancers, harpists, pipers, Eile's brother-in-law was a Dublin comedian who hosted, performers came from all over the east coast.  Frank had a couple of sets, accompanied by Eile on harp or piano and the band.  They were gloriously tacky and a lot of fun.

I still get an ASCAP royalty every year from Frank's "America the Beautiful," which is on one of his television programs they still play on PBS.  Here's to Frank!  I still miss you.

Frank did have a beautiful voice...

Is this version that was released back in 1963. I have a copy that was released in 1960 (?) that my freind cassie converted from her Pals format tape to NTSC....

Nicely done I thought and it was great to Leo Rowsome on the pipes. The Music was done by Sean O'Riada and Ceoltoiri Cualann. Ironically, Ceoltoiri Cualann were the forerunners to the Chieftains...

I have several records of Ceoltoiri Cualann....


Other films that used Irish instrucments was Barry Lyndon (Chieftains got an oscar for their work here), Grey Fox (Chiefttains got a Juno award here) and Love Spell (Another chieftains score)

A Minneapolis couple decided to go to Florida to thaw out during a particularly icy winter.

They planned to stay at the same hotel where they spent their honeymoon 20 years earlier.

Because of hectic schedules, it was difficult to coordinate their travel schedules, so the husband left Minnesota and flew to Florida on Thursday, with his wife flying down the following day.

The husband checked into the hotel. There was a computer in his room, so he decided to send an email to his wife. However, he accidentally left out one letter in her email address, and without realizing his error, sent the email.

Meanwhile, somewhere in Houston, a widow had just returned home from her husband's funeral. He was a minister who was called home to glory following a heart attack.

The widow decided to check her email expecting messages from relatives and friends.

After reading the first message, she screamed and fainted.

The widow's son rushed into the room, found his mother on the floor, and saw the computer screen which read:

To: My loving wife
Subject: I've arrived
Date: December 16, 2005

I know you're surprised to hear from me. They have computers here now and you are allowed to send e-mails to your loved ones.

I've just arrived and have been checked in. I see that everything has been prepared for your arrival tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing you then. Hope your journey is as uneventful as mine was.

DR Elmore, (or any other DR) can you reccomend a good recording of Verdi's "Aida"?

Yep!  Leontyne Price, Robert Merrill, Jon Vickers, conducted by Sir Georg Solti on London/Decca.  This set is excellent and reasonably priced.

DRMatthew,  I also like the Angel-EMI recording of AIDA with Monserrat Caballe and Domingo.  

The dress rehearsal of FIDELIO was amazing, well cast, well sung, well staged and well conducted.  I thought an opera about political prisoners and their clandestine assassination was a good choice for the day, and the Met production is set in this century, rather than 18th Century Spain.  It's one of the few pieces that works in a contemporary setting, and I think it helps drive home the point of the piece.  I was quite moved by it.

What a shame about THE QUIET MAN looking less than wonderful. There should be no reason it doesn't look as good as other color movies from the same period. It was done in Technicolor, not that garish Republic Trucolor, so there's no reason it shouldn't look as good as SINGIN' IN THE RAIN or LOVELY TO LOOK AT from the same year.

Had a great Agatha Christie afternoon. Started off with MURDER AT THE GALLOP, and it looked as pristine as MURDER MOST FOUL. And with Robert Morley and Flora Robson in the cast, you just can't go wrong.

Obviously Margaret Rutherford didn't ride horses since the stunt double is very, very obvious in the few shots where Miss Marple is supposed to be horseback riding.

I am EXACTLY the same way. I tell by how easy it is to hook the last loop on my belt. If I get to it easily without sucking in my stomach, my weight is exactly where it should be. If it's an effort to get there or if I have to use the second to last notch in the belt, I've put on weight. I've been on that last notch for a month and a half now, and I'm very happy with my current weight.

Then I watched TEN LITTLE INDIANS. I doesn't look nearly as good as the Marple films, but it's OK. There were some light scratches at the start and some spotting and deeper scratches later on and the contrast wasn't as good as it should have been. Still, it's OK. Glad to have it in an enhanced transfer. They've all taken their places proudly on the Agatha Christie shelf.

Well...I was excited by it.  There's been quite a furor of anticipation/speculation and -- true to form -- pronouncements against it in the "what will it be" discussion thread at the Film Score Monthly Messageboard.  "Goodbye, Mr. Chips" was the hands-down best guess, but many others pooh-poohed it as nonsense, a bad decision, financial suicide, etc., etc.

I hope it does well so that more musicals might get similar treatment.

I know I'm extremely impressed with what's on this set...overwhelmed, actually.

Of course, BK has known for some time this was in the works...and has probably heard most all of it already (if he doesn't already have a copy).

Sooner Or Later

Performed by Sis Rabbit (and Bunnies)

Sooner or Later that rabbit is gonna come home (he's comin')

You wait and see! (Will he, mama?)

Sooner or Later Brer Fox'll be letting him go (ooh, ooh)
I'll betcha (ooh, ooh) Brer Rabbit's gonna free him.
You wait and see! (You wait and see.)

He's gonna trick ol' Brer Fox
Get away by his talks
Matter-of-factly I don't know exactly when. (aah, aah)

But Sooner or Later that rabbit is gonna come home
(gonna come home)
He's learned his lesson again.

He's gonna fool ol' Brer Bear (yeah!)
Escape from his lair (he is!)
Matter-of-factly I don't know exactly when. (Sooner or Later!)

But Sooner or Later that rabbit is gonna come home
(gonna come home)
He's learned his lesson again!

Sooner or Later that rabbit is gonna come home (he's comin')

Sooner Or Later

Words by Ray Gilbert
Music by Charles Wolcott
Performed by Hattie McDaniel
© 1946 Walt Disney Music Company


Sooner or later you're gonna
   be comin' around,
I betcha, I betcha that I catch ya,
You wait and see.

Sooner or later you're gonna
   be hangin' around,
I betcha, I betcha if I catch ya,
You'll hear from me.

You're gonna knock on my door
You done it before
Matter of factly I don't know exactly when

But Sooner or Later you're gonna
   be hangin' around
And want my cookin' again.

You're gonna knock on my door
You don't it before [knock knock]
Matter of factly I 'spected you 'zactly then!

Cause sooner or later I know you'd
   be hangin' around
And want my cookin' again.

While the movie's song focused on Uncle Remus' hunger for some of Sis Tempy's outstanding gooseberry pie, the sheet music version addressed love:

You and I said goodbye
With a friendly kiss
And though I'm not the surest kind,
I'm kinda sure of this:

Sooner or later you're gonna be comin' around, I'll betcha;
I'll betcha that I getcha, you wait and see.
Sooner or later you'll wanna be hangin' around, I'll letcha;
I'll betcha if I letcha, you'll baby me.

You're gonna knock on my door
(knock knock)
You did it before
(knock knock)
Matter o'factly I don't know exactly when.

But sooner or later you're gonna be comin' around and want my lovin' again.

In all the wrong places
You've been looking for love
All the wrong faces
Gotta get ya girl
On this illusion
Gonna save your heart

Actually? there's a story there! Yes, there is!

MANY years ago, when I was a "Canadian", I used to cross the border with a friend and explore Vermont. In some modest shop I did find that VERY music sheet. It was not very expensive but still I could not afford it and my friend ended up buying it for his collection!

Same thing happened a few weeks after for an old copy of Life magazines that has some article on Sleeping Beauty with photos I had never seen.
So.... if you're interested in those items, I'll give you my friend's address -- He's in Ottawa now! -- I'm sure they're still in his Disney collection. ;D

BOLLYBROOK - that's the title of the Bollywood musical based on QUIET MAN
I was going to suggest "Bridey & Breadinyourdish". The Murphey children at last get fed during the famine.

After work, a couple of friends bent my arm to go bend elbows and lift some pints at a noisy crowded tavern.  i had a fun time but now I feel all Irished out.  Just as well--I checked over my DVD library and suddenly remembered that my copy of THE QUIET MAN is at the House of Mom.  I guess I could watch THE VALLEY OF DECISION in which I believe Miss Greer Garson has her Irish up.

My absence yesterday!!

Derek's Bears went to visit friends (of theirs and Derek's) in the Spa town of Daylesford, (About three hours drive away).  At one stage we thought our plans were being derailed.  The trains only run on Sundays there we had to settle for ice-cream instead of a train ride.

Well, hiya. I had a lovely conference-with-foodstuffs with our BK - we went to the Marie Callender's not far from his home. He ate a burger, bacon, cheese, fried onion rings (I snagged one o' those, I tell ya); I had a salad with baby field greens, pecans, a little Gorgonzola, a few dried cranberries. Yummmmmm. We tried to eat a piece of pie after - just couldn't do it.

With a few deft words, and one scene placed at the end, the play is fixed. I'll do the rewrites in the next week - it will be very easy. Then I'll do a read thru with Bruce and a couple of other actors - see how it reads - then either commit to a production in October, or not. Huzzah, I love this!!

Anyhoo, Bruce went to the showers thence to the show. And I'm here at my sister's place. Jane called while we were in the restaurant. And that's the news, kidz.

Notice the gentleman's gallant tipping of the hat, the corsage, the lush draperies and furnishings...and finally milady's haute couture dress.  Single strap of fabric flowers, gathered at the waist, a pleated balloon skirt with fitted hem....dress is green and blue chiffons criss-crossed at the bodice, matching green low heeled shoes and evening bag.  Opera length gloves and rainbow earrings complete the ensemble.  8)

I am not sure where they are going since the gentleman is NOT wearing evening dress, or perhaps they are going to his flat so that he can change and he is picking her up on the way.  ;D

At any rate, his walking stick is certainly positioned at a jaunty angle.  :o

And now off to class to give a somewhat dry lecture on how to calculate compound interest and annuities.

Wow, I am overwhelmed by the offers of paper topics.  Thank you to FJL also.  Too bad there's that whole plagerism issue to contend with.

I 've actually heard that many professors now scan their students' papers and run them through some computer program to check for uncited quotations and other misedmeanors.  Can this be true, or is it some sort of urban legend that is passed along by college students...

Good memory, I'm impressed! I actually did have the option of writing it about a movie, but upon further consideration, I decided to go ahead and write it about a real life family I have been working with even though I haven't been doing actual "family therapy" with them.  It's kind of like fulfilling my fantasy of what I would do if mom was actually open to coming to family sessions.

I have a SONG OF THE SOUTH VHS tape made from the Japanese laserdisc and that DVD imported from, where was it, Thailand or the Phillippines? In any event, the DVD looks better than the tape, but neither looks as good as an official Disney DVD would look.

There was talk last year that Disney was at long last going to release SONG OF THE SOUTH on an official DVD. I guess the new Disney head man has vetoed that proposal. They will be fresh out of vault classics by the time THE LITTLE MERMAID is released in a 2-DVD enhanced set in the fall. I know they can go back and start double dipping on them, but I think SONG OF THE SOUTH would be one of the biggest sellers of all time if they'd only show some sense.

I watched a couple more CSI episodes from the Season 2 set. These episodes from early in the show's life are "pure" CSI shows before the need to embellish, enhance, or super-slick up the proceedings took hold. I actually prefer them.

Too bad the first season was released full frame and unenhanced rather than the subsequent seasons which were done properly. CSI from the first was filmed in high definition, and I wish CBS would go back and do right by the first season.

Hello all. Happy St Patty's day.  I went to a lovely dinner/fundraiser for Sustainable foods for Siouxland (I liked it better when it was just the local foods market). Anyway, fabulous food, great friends, Irish music, a sing-a-long and really a lot of fun.   They had a silent auction and I bought a big basket filled with fresn tomatoes and peppers.  I've given away a ton of them and still have about 30 tomatoes and 15 peppers. I'm planning to either make salsa or freeze them tomorrow.  I may roast some of the peppers first.  

Any suggestions? They are great organic hydroponic veges.

A sad note. I read on the internet today that Jason O'Mara has been cast in an ABC drama pilot for next season, so it looks like he's been released from any obligations to IN JUSTICE. I take this to mean the show is not being renewed for next season. I'm unhappy about that. I've really grown to love it.

So I'm hoping we get enough to get snowed in on Monday. The timing is pretty good. All the carpentry work was done on the new house and it looks great. The termite man did his thing at both houses, so all I have left to do is go to the grocery store and get settled in my house.    I may paint my home office, but not sure about that yet

My realtor cracked me up today. He has a good prospect for the house he's taking through tomorrow, but he said he hates open houses and the open house is scheduled for a week from Sunday, so he said he'll just have to sell it before then so he doesn't have to do the open house.   OK, I can live with that.

And I'll watch tonight's season finale of MONK tomorrow at some point.

I also recorded from the Fox Movie Channel NO WAY OUT (the Sidney Poitier-Richard Widmark movie) that bk talked about the other day after seeing it on DVD. I've never seen the film before, and I thought I'd watch it for "free" before investing in the DVD if I happen to like it.

Depending on the direction the train goes, the city's name can read:

Drofselyad!!

It sure does not sound Irish!

Welsh!

I went over today to check out the work that was done - and turn out the light the carpenter left on, and jiggle the handle on the toilet so it stopped running... It was really weird to drive up and see the for sale sign in the yard.  I really loved that house.  Hope someone buys it who will take care of it

We're supposed to get a bunch of snow this weekend. If you watch one channel it's 12 inches. If you watch another it's 4-6 through Monday AM and then snow all day Monday. So I'm hoping we get enough to get snowed in on Monday. The timing is pretty good. All the carpentry work was done on the new house and it looks great. The termite man did his thing at both houses, so all I have left to do is go to the grocery store and get settled in my house.    I may paint my home office, but not sure about that yet

It is that missed us... Tired of snow...Really beginning to hate winter...

Sorry for mentioning that but, for some reasons, I was thinking about Kristy McNichol and my favourite US series of the 70's, FAMILY, with Sada Thompson, Matthew's dad, James Broderick, Gary Frank, Meredith Baxter-Birney, John Rubinstein...
What a wonderful show that was!

Those of you who are nostalgic... this is for you!

I don't think it was Buddy, was it?!

It's been so many years!
Sada Thompson was such a good "mother"!

Good Afternoon!  Good Evening!  Good Morning!

-Just covering all the bases.  ;)

Well, it's been a long day, but a very good one.  Lots of interaction with lots of good people.

And I'll have to leave it at that for now.  I'm tired, I'm sleepy, and I have rehearsal in seven hours and twenty minutes.  -And tomorrow, I go from 9:00am to 7:00pm...  So...

Goodnight.

*Hope everyone is doing well.

Did someone mention the movie STRANGERS WHEN WE MEET (1960) last week? Well, I am watching it right now and boy is it good! I don't know how I managed to miss this wonderful soaper all these years!

But it is getting late so must finish the movie tomorrow.

Back from the show and finally caught up.  Must now relax so the notes will be up a bit late.  Had a great time with PennyO - as she said, we just talked through what I felt wasn't working in her show, which had very little to do with the writing, and much to do with the structure of the beginning, and clarity.  I made a suggestion, and her little eyes lit up like electric lights and she'll now do those changes and on we will go.

TPunk, I do hope you know that everyone here at haineshisway.com finds you hopelessly irresistible.

Well, not a good day for Cillaliz's state of Iowa.
The heavily, heavily favored Iowa Hawkeyes bounced in the first round on a ridiculous 3-point shot by a school called Northwestern State

The University of Northern Iowa goes on a huge scoring drought and loses to Georgetown.

Iowa State, not even in the tournament, fires their head coach amid scandal.

Meanwhile Bradley U. of Peoria, Ill., the school where my sis Polly met her hubby en route to bearing him a small army of children pulled off a major win over favored Kansas. That was nice.

Working on the 70, GIRLS, 70 program for the City Center Encores. Pretty excited to see that.

IN JUSTICE did something a little bit different tonight to get the case going, but the resulting show was just as entertaining.

A sad note. I read on the internet today that Jason O'Mara has been cast in an ABC drama pilot for next season, so it looks like he's been released from any obligations to IN JUSTICE. I take this to mean the show is not being renewed for next season. I'm unhappy about that. I've really grown to love it.

I like this show...that's too bad. :( Maybe, only Jason is leaving the show and there's still a possibility that the show will be renewed.

I have a SONG OF THE SOUTH VHS tape made from the Japanese laserdisc and that DVD imported from, where was it, Thailand or the Phillippines? In any event, the DVD looks better than the tape, but neither looks as good as an official Disney DVD would look.

There was talk last year that Disney was at long last going to release SONG OF THE SOUTH on an official DVD. I guess the new Disney head man has vetoed that proposal. They will be fresh out of vault classics by the time THE LITTLE MERMAID is released in a 2-DVD enhanced set in the fall. I know they can go back and start double dipping on them, but I think SONG OF THE SOUTH would be one of the biggest sellers of all time if they'd only show some sense.

I posted this about "Song of the South" in September:
Quote
On eBay a couple of years ago, someone had a Japanese laserdisc copy of this movie that was a former rental (it didn't have the Japanese subtitles during the songs that all of the other laserdiscs had).  Anyway, there was a Buy It Now price of $1,350!!  The bidding got up to about $800 when someone actually bid $1,350 and bought it!  I couldn't believe that someone would pay that much.  All I kept thinking was that that's $1,350 that the Disney company isn't getting...from just one person...and that there were other people willing to pay at least $800!!

They're missing out on a lotta loot!  

And now, mini-rant, here:  they (Disney Corp.) had the nerve to demand that Kermit be cut out of the recent re-issue of "Emmet Otter's Jug Band Christmas (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0009PLLK4/qid=1142669524/sr=1-1/ref=sr_1_1/102-4779504-7364131?s=dvd&v=glance&n=130)" (that's been around for more than 20 years), but allowed Kermit (singing "It's Not Easy Being Green" even!) to sell Ford SUVs!  

That's just wrong. >:(
