After TLS I headed on over to Pietrasanta with my friend, Mark, who had also seen the show tonight.  It was my first time back at Pietrasanta since the new owners had taken over.  The menu was the same - although newly typeset and printed.  The room had a fresh coat of paint - along with a few piece of blue painter's tape in some of the corners. ;)  And there was new fabric on the banquettes.  The food was good, but I could definitely tell things were different - and not necessarily for the better.  It just seemed a bit too busy, and louder(!) than it used to be.  -And I miss the tablecloths too.  And they also have the hostess outside on the sidewalk handing out menus and asking/begging people to come in.

*However, it also turned that a bunch of the NAMT (National Alliance for Musical Theatre) participants were dining there tonight too - they had come from their opening weekend reception.  The gang from Seaside Music Theatre was there, along with Mr. Stephen Schwartz.

DR Jane - I've been the trailer for "The Kite Runner" over the past couple of weeks when I've gone to the movies.  However, the last time I saw the trailer, I did notice that the release date was no longer being announced at the end of the trailer.  Alas, now I know why.

Quote from Bruce in October 3rds notes:

"Meanwhile, Iím going to prepare the next Kritzerland release, which Iíll start taking preorders for in about two weeks."

Thanks!  I knew I read it somewhere. ;D

I'll begin the discussion....If this man were on the opposing team, how would be the best way to go about tackling him?


Umm... I think the question is how would I get him to tackle me!

Hmmm...

And still no word on the possible Broadway Lockout.  However, I just got another e-mail from Local-802/AFM regarding not leaving any instruments or personal items after Sunday's shows (since the lockout would take effect on Monday morning).  :-\

It's time for me to leave.  Tonight is ArtsWalk in downtown Olympia, a semi-annual arts festival.  I'm going to usher at The Washington Center for the Performing Arts.  I'm sure it'll mainly be just crowd-control.  I don't know what events are happening at the Center, but as far as I know, it's all free.  Free is good!  Have a good evening, all!

I may start advance preorders for our new title on Monday, since I think I can have it in hand in a month.  I just don't know if I can get it on the Kritzerland site that fast, so I may do the advance advance right here as a special thing.

I'm guessing that the new CD is "DearReaderLaura's Father-in-Law Sings to Friends."

DRs MusicGuy and Kerry will be laughing hysterically when they read that.

And for any others who like "pretty" CD covers, I highly recommend David Burnham's debut disc:

I did manage to finish the three remaining CSI: NY episodes on disc 6, and I had forgotten how thrilling and superb the season finale was. Very exciting stuff.

I also watched the last of the featurettes on the disc: over twenty minutes of Hill Harper being shown around a Body Farm at the University of Tennessee. Interesting.

Since I finished before 8 p.m., I was able to watch WHOST WHISPERER "live." Enjoyable enough, but I guessed pretty quickly what was really going on.

Kevin Kilner? Was he the girl's father? If it was, I thought he was wonderful (and a hunk).

I couldn't resist, so even with a DVR just stuffed full of TV programs, I HAD to watch BABES ON BROADWAY from the Mickey-Judy set. Knowing what I'm going to have coming in over the next few days to be viewed and written about, I thought this might be my last opportunity to watch one of the films in the set.

It looks just fine. Not perfect, mind you, but good. There were some speckles, and I didn't think sharpness was consistent throughout or that black levels were very strong until we got to the minstrel finale sequence.

And they've dialed the sound down quite a bit. I had to up the volume on the receiver to compensate. Be careful if you listen to Burton Lane singing "Chin Up, Cheerio, Carry On!" on the bonus features because it's loud and having the receiver turned up almost burst my eardrums. (He sings quite well, BTW.)

Tomorrow I'll watch some of the TV shows I've accumulated over the last few days, and then tomorrow night, I'll probably start on MEDIUM - Season 3.

I happened to walk by the movie theatre where one of the showings was taking place tonight.  Lots of men in kurtas, women in saris, etc.  I immediately thought of you.

Cilla, how nice the girls fighting makes you happy. ;D :D

Well it wasn't vicious fighting, just cats playing. Callie is chasing a ball around tonight too. She hasn't played in a long time, so watching her run, wrestle with Boo and chase a ball tells me she's feeling better.   She slept in my suitcase for 2 nights, lol, I finally put it away
