it's true...

DR Bevan and DR Jed are secretly long lost brothers.

I guess DR Jed's unofficial father, DR TCB, had a veeeeerrrryyyy interesting youth... ;)

For some strange reason, Saboteur is my favorite Hitchcock film of all time.  Maybe it was because it was one of the first Hitchcock films that I ever saw, catching on the Late Show one Saturday night when I was a kid.  Also, the bomb blast at the shipyards fit right in with my fascination with ships and ship disasters.  By the time we got to the Statue of Liberty, I was totally hooked on the movie.  And speaking of Hitchcock………..

DVD:  North By Northwest and The Tacoma Little Theatre 85th Anniversary Gala, staring Me (not directed by Hitchcock)

CD:   Nothing

Video:  Abbott and Costello’s The Time of Their Lives

Welcome to new DR Bevan.  (Ya know, we really should have an Auntie Mame here to escort newbies up the grand stairs and give them the "life is a banquet speech.)

The Eisner Company has just announced a new TV Movie" "The Muppetts Wizard of Oz" with Miss Piggy as both Elphaba and Galinda!!!  I wonder what part Victor Garber will play in this one.

Shouldn't Kermit play Elphaba?

I agree with Jennifer and everyone else.  At least, from those two pics.  Perhaps if I saw a pic of DR Bevan at a different angle, it would be different.  But from that picture, I will agree.

It's Friday, so that means we have an extra celebration.  That's right, today is the day we all get to cheer...

Welcome home, Joe!!!

And the happiest of days to DR Jay!

Welcome to DR Bevan.  Yeah, I can see some resemblance between us.  It's just the whole "young guy with a beard" thing. :)

Der Brucer, my mother and grandmother are unilingual anglophones and believe that Montreal is a great (and fun) place to live.

I'm interested as to when you had an experience that proved otherwise.  

Over 350,000 Montrealers in the most recent census claimed to have English as a mother-tongue... (myself included)

A PLEA TO FANS OF CLASSIC DISNEY ANIMATION

The Disney Studio has completed a classic animated version of The Three Musketeers starring Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy in the title roles.  Michael Eisner has decided that as good as it is, it would not attract audiences and be too much of a financial risk to release it to theatres since it is not computer animated.  He wants it to release it directly to DVD.  

Seems like a day late and a dollar short. The decision to release direct to Video was clearly made some time back. The Lion King 1˝ DVD (released 10 Feb) has a trailer announcing the TM DVD release for Summer 2004. Judging from the trailer, the film will be fun, but probably not "intense" enough for theatrical success - in addition, it introduces no new characters. I'd be surprised that Disney would be gun-shy based on animation techniques, Lilo & Stitch grossed in the neighborhood of $300M on an $80M traditional-animation film.

I have been through AOL HELL, and I'm here to tell the tale.  Actually, I will tell the whole sorry tale in tomorrow's notes.  Suffice it to say, I have wasted four hours of my day dealing with it.

Oh DR WFO: do let us know when Joe returns home!
(i hope it's already happened).

And DR DerBrucer: I agree with DR Emily, you could easily get along in Montreal with English only (especially downtown and on the West Island where I am).  There are definitely some areas around Montreal that are much more french.  But the downtown core is totally bilingual.

Welcome, new DR Bevan.

FULL FRONTAL is one weird little movie. It's a puzzle piece kind of thing where there are three different levels of "reality" and the film is constantly switching from one to another as you try to sort them out. Not really dramatic or comedic enough to be popular or even a guilty pleasure, but it's an interesting enough film experiment. Not sorry I saw it, but glad I waited to record it from STARZ rather than paying money to see it in the theater or rent it on DVD.

I, too, really like SABOTEUR. I think the suspense it generates throughout is really powerful, and Robert Cummings has never bothered me in the leading role; in fact, he havs that "all-American" look about him that works well in the picture. (I think he's terrible in DIAL 'M' FOR MURDER, however).

My friend Salah just returned from NYC. Last evening we were having dinner together at another friend's - a delicious (and garlicky) homemade Lebanese meal. I asked Salah about New York, and he said Wicked was so boring that he walked out during intermission. Later I dreamed that I was at the Gershwin Theatre - third row, center - and was having the most splendid time seeing Wicked. There was only one glitch. The guy in front of me kept moving his head.

Would anyone care to analyze that?

You're beginning to doubt Salah's "friendship"...and you're worrying with that head because you're suspicious that it's Salah who is boring, rather than the play.

Indeed, the warmest and wellest of wishes to Joe on his homecoming.  I know there will be some greiving, but I hope you leave room for some true celebrating as well.  

I am having one of those days where I just want to eat.  I woke up this morning and had yogurt...then that wasn't enough, so I had two scrambled eggs.  I went to work and had campbells chicken soup, but that wasn't enough, so I had two hard boiled eggs.  I seem to be craving eggs today, for some inexplicible reason.  I have decided that today will be a break-from-the-diet day.  I will eat whatever my body fancies, and that's that.  So far its fancying rather healthy things, so that's nice.  

Nothing in the DVD player at the moment, but that will change tonight, as i'll probably be hitting the video store on my way home from work.
Car CD has a broadway mix that i burned at my parents' house last weekend.  An eclectic mix of Wicked, Avenue Q, Chiacgo, with a few tracks from LOTR and The Last Unicorn thrown in there for fun.  Odd, but pleasing to me

Oh yes, and welcome DR Bevan, in case I haven't said so already :)

It is not too late to have Mickey, Donald and Goofy released to theatres if enough interest is shown.  That is the purpose of writing to Mr. Cook who could change the distribution plan if he finds there is enough interest in it.  This information was posted on a Disney fan site today.  Apparently there has already been some interest shown in changing this to a theatrical release and Mr. Cook is concerned that they might be making a mistake.  There have been trailers before on Disney DVDs and VHSs for films whose releases were postponed or that were shown in theatres first and then released to home video later than initially planned (PETER PAN 2 was one of them).  That is why enough e-mails like I suggested could get this released first to theatres.

For DR Dan: Yes I really do like The Apprentice.  Even last night's recap episode was fun.  But it is interesting how the first to go were the men. And now he's been getting rid of all the women.  There are only 2 women left (and 4 men).

To me the only possible winner is Amy.  Everyone else is less than stellar.

I was sure it would come down to Troy and Amy, but after the dressdown Troy received last week, I'm not so sure.  As for Amy, someon mentioned to me that she currently has a website where she is fishing for acting offers, which seems kind of odd.  I'll try to find the site address and post it later.
