TOD:

The commentary on FIRST NUDIE MUSICAL and BEGINNING OF THE END is terrific.  I wonder what they have in common?

I also VERY much enjoyed the extras on the EL CID dvd.  

Did BK direct EL CID?

And now I need to hurry down to Chelsea for today's (short) round of callbacks.

Laters...

And when you are down there, Jose; you tell them that there is no way that I am understudying Miss Mazeppa.

Hi, DR elmore!  -I just got back in from running some errands - which I meant to do after my auditions this afternoon, but...

Margaritas tonight?

Can we have dinner tomorrow night? And margaritas?  I've sort of settled in and don't want to move.

Well, I had a rather touching time yesterday reuniting Frances' nephew with his long ago U of W and NYC friend.  They are both pretty much slack-jawed at reconnecting after almost 50 years.  And in the continuing synchronicity department, the theater guy here mentioned to me yesterday he was glad to be reconnecting with his old friends because he had just read of another of their class' alum's death--James Callahan.  I'm sure you of a certain age will remember Mr. Callahan.  Well, Mr. Callahan was married (at least at one time) to the eldest daughter of our next door neighbor in SLC!  (This was around the time of "Wendy and Me"--remember that one?).


I thought that James Callahan died last summer or maybe even spring?

That should work.  I'm playing Mary Poppins auditions all day tomorrow (and Wednesday), so I'll probably be in need of a margarita.  ;)

I thought the Super Bowl halftime show totally boring.

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers obviously have talent and a fanbase...but the entire presentation was a major letdown for me.  Add to that the conceit of letting fans (read that:  Fan Club!) onto the field with lights to complete the "concert" image they tried to put over.

Super Bowl halftimes USED TO BE spectacular and wonderful.  


I thought the girl from AMERICAN IDOL who sang the National Anthem did a wonderful job.  It didn't top Whitney, but it was damn good.

Good evening. Well tonight I am soon off to see Evita.  I'm looking forward to it.  I'm just hoping it wil be a good production. Sometimes we get good quality and sometimes it's terrible.   I've always liked the music to Evita and the story of Eva Peron, so it will be a fun evening for me.

Great! I plan to spend my morning doing all the wrapped up laundry, so I'll need a margarita or three as well!

Concerning yesterday's comments about the lack of fairness in primary elections and our two party system:


B. In CA there are presently 6 State recognized political parties; each party is allowed to draft their own rules for Primary voter participation. For the Feb 08 Presidential Primary, as follows:



I thought the California primary was part of Super Tuesday.

It is still raining.

If it is sunny tomorrow, I will walk to my old high school for Super Tuesday. Well, my new old high school. They tore down the old one and built a new one a couple years ago. I haven't seen it yet, except to drive by.

DR TCB - if there were any to get a plate of pot roast to you, I sure would.  How 'bout some heavy-duty VIBES instead?

DITTO! Actually, most of them left me shaking my head. Some of the worst ever, I thought. Left me thinking,"They paid that kind of money to air these!?"

I did like the Bud one with the horse being trained by the dog, and the one with Will Ferrell as the basketball player, and the one with the folks nodding off/spoof of the old SNL skit with Will and Chris. But again, worth millions? .. hmmmm, I don't know about that ...

Oh, and the water one with the dancing lizards has major logo-identity problems -- everyone in the room I was with thought it was a Geico promo at first...


Oh, I think it was probably worth the money.  That was the major topic of conversation all day at work, at the store, and even several mentions here.  It doesn't really matter if you like the commerical or hate it; it is the name recognition that they desire.

Last time I was in Phoenix I was amazed at how many things have been torn down and something else built there since I left in 1992.  I ddin't recognize a lot of places where I used to spend a lot of time. It made me a little uneasy

Why in the world would the Arizona Diamondbacks send me an e-mail offering  me a discount on season tickets?  That would be a lot of driving to watch eighty-one home games.
