Back from a field trip, which I'm very glad I took the time to make because my descriptions, based on someone else's memories, were completely wrong.  I now have many notes and can describe things accurately and more colorfully.  I'll try to do those little revisions this evening after a motion picture.

My sister said that now that I'm 52, I'm finally playing with a full deck.    ;D   Of course, she does live at a higher altitude, and I'm sure she's not getting enough oxygen to the brain!

I then went back to Nate 'n Al to have the pastrami sandwich that fellow Yelpers were raving about.  Well, it was hands down the best pastrami sandwich I've ever had - lean, hot, succulent and wonderful-tasting.  I had the New York, pastrami, cole slaw (on the sandwich) and Russian dressing.  Spectacular.  Had a side of kishka, and that, too, was brilliant.  And their pickles were the best ever.

BK, don't watch a movie you are going to loath!

Watch one of those little 1930s Crime Club movies that I sent you, instead.

DR TD, I got this in the mail today:



For just $3.99 a dvd of music videos featuring either Emraan Hashmi or your very own Shahid Kapoor. Just watched one from FIDA, which I quite liked.

DR Matthew, I'm sorry you chose the Broadway version of BRIGADOON. It's OK, and it IS the original cast, but stuff is missing.

I MUCH prefer the Shirley Jones-Jack Cassidy version due to the fabulous Susan Johnson playing Meg. Her two songs, especially "The Love of My Life" is the best version I've ever heard.

The Barrett-Lucker-Kaye complete recording is wonderful, too, but the Jones-Cassidy on LP was always my favorite version growing up with it as I did, and when it finally came out on CD a year or two ago, I couldn't have been happier.

I concur with DR Matt in regards to BRIGADOON; the Jones/Cassidy version is my favorite, but. . .as much as I love me some Susan Johnson, I also love Judy Kaye (a personal friend of BK) on the Barrett/Luker recording.

I watched three more episodes of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST. The drug lord was killed and the child retrieved at the end of the last episode I watched. I cannot imagine what the last two episodes of the series are going to be about.

From where was it mailed?  I need to get myself one!  Or two, to share with friends!

Thanks to bk for suggesting I check on Ebay for the PORGY AND BESS soundtrack on CD and many big thanks to DR Elmore for finding it for me and sending me the link.

I won the CD tonight and hopefully will have it soon!

Thanks, guys, so much!

MONK had a poor episode tonight. In fact, I figured out what was going on very early (part of it stolen from an old SUPERMAN episode). Monk never did actually figure out what was happening. The others did. This may be a first for the show.

PSYCH was entertaining, however, and I burst out laughing when Shawn entered into a lodge meeting with the members in purple hooded robes while on the soundtrack, music was playing from EYES WIDE SHUT. Hilarious.

Later Shawn and his dad engaged in a shouting match straight out of A FEW GOOD MEN. Also hysterical.

Speaking of winning cds, tonight when I came in from work, a kind gentleman in Madrid had emailed me saying that he saw that I "wished" for the Doris Day/Robert Goulet ANNIE GET YOUR GUN over at www.castalbums.org and that he had sent it to me via sendspace!  Officially now, I have seven recordings of Irving Berlin's masterpiece, including one with BK's personal friend Judy Kaye and another with BK and my personal friend Jason Graae!

I also finished watching as much of SUPERNATURAL as my DVR recorded - 15 minutes shy of the whole show. I did see the bad girl eliminated, but that's where the DVR cut off. I have no idea what happened next with Dean and Sam.

I loved that Day/Goulet ANNIE GET YOUR GUN when I was growing up, but I put the LP on the turntables for a spin a few months ago, and I wasn't as enthralled with it this time. Perhaps I need to listen to the whole thing. I remember listening only to the first side.

The arrangements are the problem with Day's ANNIE; both she and Goulet are ideally suited for the material and are quite finely matched, but the orchestrations. . .

They're in great voice, but I think Day wasn't much into character in the early part of the singing. She sings the songs sweetly and correctly but sounded too cultured too early on with nothing left to learn later in the show.

OH!

I keep meaning to ask...

Does anyone know if CBS was planning on broadcasting "Dexter" (from Showtime) before the WGA strike?
