Yes, DR RODZINSKI....Silver Lady was a nice follow up.  I think it's on the LP....but I haven't played it since the last century.

Amazon doesn't allow you to hear any clips from the David Soul CDs...I guess they want to keep it all a surprise.

My 3-day weekend:

Cleaning the house.

Getting the cable company to check my signal and correct whatever is causing all my local channels (the low numbers, as the cable company receptionist called them) to ghost and have audio distortion  Only six channels of 125 are affected.  The rest are crystal clear.

Oh...and possibly getting a bunch of stuff out of the house and over to the Salvation Army.

There was a song called "South Carolina" back in the last 60s or early 70s:

Last night I had the same old dream
I've dreamt so many nights before
There I was in South Carolina
I heard the postman knockin' at my door
And then I woke up...early...
And there it was, need I say
A letter from my hometown...my hometown
Carolina, U.S.A.

Hygiene did end up being important since best friend John and I did have a late lunch. SPlit my viewing afternoon into two pieces, but it was a nice visit. He's been at computer conferences all week, and we haven't had much time to talk.

I watched 30 ROCK, again, not much of a funny episode there. The NBC page character (Kenny?) is the only tolerable one on the show - wide eyed and innocent and eager to please. Everyone else is too full of himself to bear. I guess I've kept watching since NBC plans to move it into its Thursday block of comedies (along with the returning SCRUBS), and it's just got to get better to fit in with those other three superb shows.

I watched one CSI: NY episode on the DVD set. This was the second half of a two part episode (with CSI: MIAMI) in which a killer in Miami escapes to NYC only to commit more murders. James Badge Dale and Carlos Leon were among the guest stars.

Then I watched last night's installment of CSI: NY. Two murder cases - one with an easy to spot murderer and the other a bit harder to figure out. An OK installment of the series.

I ended the afternoon watching thirty more minutes of UNDERCURRENT. (The movie isn't that long, but I only seem to be able to watch it in bits and pieces.) This must have been one of Jayne Meadows early MGM films. She looks very young. She looked much more mature the next year in the last THIN MAN movie.

This is a good year for Wood Ducks with 20-30 arriving every morning.  They have a game they enjoy playing.  They climb out of the pond, march around to the back of the tall reeds and then all at once fly over the reeds back into the pond, some of them diving right in.

Keith put the camera to the telescope lens & too multiple photos, only this one came out.

Thanks for the clarificiations (and clarity) DR Elmore.

I know your standards are high, and given that you live in NYC, there's an awful lot to live up to for most "presentations."  Sadly, as is true in the movie business, those making the decisions and doing the conceptions aren't necessarily gifted enough to be playing with the professionals.

I love the singing in the Lupone-Chenoweth "Candide"...primarily, though, the singing of Chenoweth and the tenor who sings "Candide."

And I find the "Make Our Garden Grow" number thrilling/chilling to hear.  

But I can see more finely tuned tastes deploring the ramshackledyness of it all.

Bernstein never liked the 1973 version because it trivialized his score, put music written for one locale into another, and cut too much of it.  He had similar problems with the City Opera version, which crammed into the basic 1973 rewrite more music, but often not where the musical parodies lie, such as dumping the Ravel-like "Paris Waltz" into either South America or another spot, and removing or reassigning a lot of Cuinegonde's music because she doesn't appear much in Act Two of the City Opera version.  

I've seen Lonny Price do good work, but not here: he chooses the 1973 version for his basic text, Lupone is not a legit enough singer: the Old Lady is a legit mezzo role - the work is, after all, an operatic spoof as well as Bernstein running through Western Music of the past 300 years.  This is one of my favorie pieces, and I think the Philharmonic and Marin alsop  should be embarassed by what they did to Bernstein.  The 1968 50th birthday concert was far superior.
