LIFE IS A CABARET
« on: July 14, 2006, 12:12:19 AM »

Well, you've read the notes, the notes were a cabaret, old chum, and now it is time for you to post until the cows come home - they're attending a cowbaret, old chum.

In my DVD player:  "Doctor Who:  The Complete First Series" and "Reno 911:  The Complete Third Season."

In my CD player, the "world premiere recording" of Bernarda Alba (I just got it yesterday from Amazon.com with "Reno 911.")

In my VCR:  nothing.

That is all.  Good night. :)

Good morning all.  I'm off to work.  I have lots to do there, so I'll try to have a productive day today.  

DR Laura - From reading the story online, I thought that one of the serial shooters was near you.   Be very careful, it sounds like he's just shooting randomly at people walking. That is very scary.

I have lots of CDs at work. It's quite a mix

Bette Midler-Broken Blossom
Bette Midler-Soundtrack from The Rose
Original London Cast-The Blitz
Eric Michael Gillett-Cast of Thousands-The Songs of Craig Carnelia
(here's where it begins to get eclectic)
Peter, Paul and Mary (first album)
Peter, Paul and Mary Album 1700 (I love this CD)
Peter, Paul and Mary-Flowers and Stones
Peter, Paul and Mary-No Easy Walk to Freedom (I ADORE this CD)
Nancy Lamott-Beautiful Baby
Nancy Lamott-Listen to My Heart
Nancy Lamott-What's Good About Goodbye

and I have a wonderful present from a certain Frenchman!

I have no DVDs to watch but Mr. Morelli has a boatload of various mysterys and television shows to watch, PBS Mystery, Monk, Dead Zone and various other shows of which I have no interest.

We are busy this evening with a cousins get together. One of Anthony's cousins lives in Chicago and she's in town for a wedding so a number of us are gathering on the Upper West Side to greet Theresa.

Tomorrow or Sunday (both days are supposed to be very, very hot) we will walk over the Brooklyn Bridge. Anthony can then cross that off his list of things to do.

I will toddle over to Bed, Bath and Beyond to buy a new toaster oven this weekend, using the 20% discount coupon before it expires on Monday (I have such an exciting life, don't cha think  ;))

So I guess the 13th of August is a no go for a NY HHW get together. Well, I'm free most of the summer. Just keep me posted and I'll be there.

A very long post is about to come to an end.

Good morning, all!  It's time for a heat wave and I am not happy about it.  Of course, if I were more comfortable physically, I might be less hostile about it.

I discovered a tv program last night, IT'S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA, and it's now my second favorite program after MY NAME IS EARL.  FX played two episodes of the sitcom back to back at 10 PM, and I thought they were rude, very funny, and well cast.

Today, I will hie myself down to the office, deal a bit on Library of Congress concerns with Ira Gershwin and Harold Arlen, edit a BABES number, move on to the NYPL Theatre Collection around noon, and fill some prescriptions:  a day crammed with incident.

Dylan is moving upstate on Sunday afternoon, so I will most likely spend Monday tidying, reorganizing the apartment, and thanking God.

TOD:  
  DVD:  DECEIT, Kirov Ballet COPPELIA,  Australian Opera HMS PINAFORE with Anthony warlow
  CD:  THE TRAGIC AND HORRIBLE LIFE OF THE SINGING NUN, Mozart piano concertos, my brother and sister-in-law's demo CD
  VCR:  Countdown to Monday!!!!!!!!!!!

I forgot to ask this during my long post.

I'm re-reading Sondheim and Company and there is a chapter about the Barbra Streisand Broadway album and how she and Sondheim worked together and how he changed some lyrics for her. I never picked up the album because it's later BS and I'm not a fan of her later work. She's certainly better than when she was in her pretentious period (my opinion only, Babs lovers don't attack me) doing things like Butterfly and Evergreen but she was so much better in the early days. Anyway, I digress. Is the Barbra Streisand Broadway Album Volume 1 any good? I have so many CDs but if it's a worthwhile listen perhaps I'll look for it and add it to the collection.

Not all of the Broadway Album is listenable. However there are a few good cuts. But others are over orchestrated, over arranged  over studiolized and over sung

I don't walk in the evenings any more, Cillaliz. For one reason, it's just too darn hot right now! It will be interesting to see what happens now -- this is all over the news. So will they strike again, or will they lay low for a while till some of the excitement dies down? Gosh, what some people will do for attention!

I think all Barbra Streisand oeuvre after the Stoney End album and right before the loathsome STAR IS BORN is bs, but my first reaction when I heard the album was: she fell into a kaleidescope; it all sounds like broken glass to me.

August 20th looks good for me.

I have no life in the summer except work. It will be a nice break. We start mandatory overtime on August 5th and every Saturday (with the exception of Labor Day weekend) I will be in the office through October 21st. It's a nice addition to the bank account (I get paid, I don't get comp time) but it's also tiring.

Friday morning greetings!

TOD - CD(car) - still listening to audiobook, The Whole World Over by Julia Glass.  It's a sprawling soap-opera of a story, but I have to find out how it ends!

DVD, VCR - nothing

So, DR Ben, you'll be working on Saturday, October 7?  That's the second day of my conference there and we usually finish about 3pm.  How late do you have to work on those Saturdays?

Myself, I'm a fan of the Broadway Album.  It was great to hear Streisand apply her voice to show tunes again.  

And I have to agree with you , DR Ben, that Striesand was so much more fun to listen to in her early days.  I recently listened to her By The Decades set (or whatever it was called) and she was much more freer and took risks with her voice early in her career.  But even by the late 60s you could hear the practice and precise control creep in.  Her belt was kept to a minimum and sh began to rely more and more on her head voice.  But her fans ate it all up.  Like buttah!  Feh!, say I.  I way prefer the young riffy Striesand over the controlled perfectionist she became.

Interesting details about THE LOVED ONE which I have only seen on broadcast television. Perhaps I must buy the DVD.  I purchased GRAND PRIX yesterday from DDD for $14.66.
