Re: writing fiction: I used to know two women who wrote romance novels and did fairly well at it. It's NOT the sort of thing I could write, but if DR VIXMOM (or others) are interested, PM me and I'll pass on what I know about it. Apparently, it SELLS.

And then there's this gal in NY who was recommended to me by Mr. Craig Brockman.  She's very cute and I've already heard her sing the two songs from the show (the joys of the Internet - I sent her the songs, plus the piano tracks, too, and she did a rough recording).  Knowing the recording was down and dirty, there was something I liked about her and her look is terrific - she's also willing to fly in on a moment's notice and do the show.  The problem is, I haven't read her, haven't seen her in person.  I've just sent her a script via e-mail and am going to try and read her tonight via the telephonic device.


Not only did I just have a lovely discussion about replacements with Dear Friend BK, I have heard the mp3s of the two numbers and seen the photos.  She's quite cute, and I await the outcome with curiosity.

I just finished the Act One finale, went to the bank to deposit a check from today's mail, and I think I'll start another Brain number before I head downtown.  The weather is revving up  for a tempest tonight, and it may be quite ugly when I head back home.

Then what?

Police detectives or officers locate Mr Simpson in Chicago and tell him:

"Mr Simpson, your ex-wife has been murdered."

OJ says:  "Oh my God, Nicole...."

But he has TWO ex-wives.   ;D

We didn't have a television during that whole Simpson trial, for which I was very glad.

Pogue, yes, the bartender, Ashley.  I like her, but she comes off a little too "today" for my tastes, whereas the NY gal has a timeless cute look to her and she doesn't sound "today".

You should try rearranging the furniture...painting the walls...putting out some flowers.

Paint the outside of the house.  Mow the lawn.  Plant some flowers.

Install a lawn jockey or some pink flamingoes.

You need something to look forward to...even if it's something that makes you GRIN!

I've never had the luxury of an audience plant, however.  

Where would you find one?  A nursery, perhaps?

RE: last night's MEDIUM.

So next week will DAY BREAK be on at 9pm and MEDIUM at 10pm? I'm hoping they are not on at the same time.


Yes, DAY BREAK is in LOST's 9 p.m. slot. MEDIUM's slot is 10 p.m. on their respective networks.

Here's some NEWS!

Starbucks has pulled a coup of sorts....for the first time in any commercial form WHATSOEVER, the original soundtrack to

White Christmas
is available on CD along with the purchase of the DVD of the movie.  And a book is included!




All for the price of $19.99 at Starbucks nationwide apparently.

Except it's not the soundtrack. It's that rerecording of the songs with Peggy Lee subbing for Rosie Clooney and different arrangements for most of the numbers.

I searched for that on LP for years and years and finally found it. I thought at worst it'd be like the NO BUSINESS LIKE SHOW BUSINESS with real soundtrack cuts except in WHITE CHRISTMAS for the Clooney numbers with Peggy's vocals over the same tracks as Rosie's. Nope, a tremendous disappointment.

DR MATTH - I keep meaning to tell you, since you are discussing the JULIUS CAESAR.....

Marlon Brando wanted to play Marc Antony but didn't have a reputation for playing the classics in Hollywood - so he made a tape recording of himself doing the famous "Friends, Romans, countrymen...." speech, and he sent to producer John Houseman.

Houseman's secretary put the tape on.  He listened for a few minutes and then said:  "Why the hell is June Allyson sending me this tape?"

That's funny! Thanks for sharing.

On the DVD, Osborne states that Gielgud recorded the oration speech at Brando's behest so Brando could study cadence, etc.

I watched some more of STAR! off the INHD broadcast, but after "Limehouse Blues," I just deleted the rest. The DVD is almost as good, and I had many other things to watch today.

I watched the second episode of BONES that was shown last night. It was a rerun from season 1 (with the male boss that I much prefer to this year's female replacement.) As always, the show is lighter and more fun than some other procedurals, and the characters are so nerdy/endearing.

I watched DAY BREAK next. Yes, there were exciting parts to the story, and each variation on the day was interesting and different enough to hold my attention. But once it became obvious to him that his girl friend would awake each day OK, I don't understand the necessity in his mind to save her. She wasn't in any real danger. His first priority obviously needs to be to find our who murdered to DA and was framing him.

The fact that his wounds do carry over from one day to the next repeat day is an anachronism that I just couldn't buy into. So, while the action was OK, and I'll probably keep watching for awhile, it isn't in the same league with LOST or '24' as an action/thriller.

Ended the afternoon viewing with Tuesday's LAW & ORDER: SVU, a sad story of lonely, unloved young teens being pimped by a scumbag that they think of as their "father." Very melancholy story.

Wow!  I just finished "Independence Day."  I'm down now to Alet's big number, the two for Donna, and the two duets for the leads, one of which is one of the loveliest things ever.  The other duet, which I also like, uses a bit of a "Bus & Truck" song, which I love in its original form, but until BK and David actually write "Bus & Truck" as a sort of American version of THE GOOD COMPANIONS, "I Hate You" will become BK's "I'm In Pursuit of Happiness."
