THE BOOK SIGNING AND OTHER STORIES

Well, you've read the notes, the notes had decorum and breeding, and now it is time for you to post until the cows come home - I'm hoping they'll be at the book signing.

Yesterday, I worked concessions for a string quartet that performed here in Olympia and that all went quite well.  They had about 500 people come to the show.  After that, I went to the party at the house of the director to Cannibal:  The Musical, that I'm in.  It was a lot of people talking, a lot of people drinking and quite a few (but not as many) outside smoking.  I had several conversations with people and a sparkling time was had by all.  I got there at about 10:00 and left at about 11:00, but the party was in full swing, so it wasn't about to end soon.  I don't think that it's going to go on all night long (a Lionel Ritchie reference ;)) because the cannibals and trappers have a photo shoot up on Mt. Rainier and they're meeting at 9:00 a.m., to carpool.  It's a long drive from Olympia to Mt. Rainier, especially if you've been drinking the night before, but I'm sure they'll all be fine.

Today, and probably Sunday as well, I have to go back to the house I moved out of (and rented from my sister) and continue to help my sister fix it up to sell.  She mentioned something about me changing all of the door knobs, which is something that I need to do in my new place, too.  I bought a locking doorknob and a deadbolt for my front door and a locking doorknob for the back of my garage, but I want to take them back to The Home Depot, where I got them.  I forgot (at the time that I bought them) that I had a couple of 10%-off coupons and I want to use them!  And since I also need to get more door knobs (for the inside doors) anyway, I can get those with the 10%-off coupon, too. :D

Funny Girl ( I saw the movie so I was expecting the soundtrack but got the cast album. It had more songs but not all the songs on the soundtrack, but I like the songs on the cast album like Who Are You Now, The Music That Makes Me Dance, Cornet Man (Especially the trumpet solo), and the songs for Fanny's mother Find Yourself a Man and Who Taught Her Everything She Knows?

Best of attendance and reading vibes to MR BK and his DIRTY STORIES.  I predict a BIG success.  Party planets are gathering today (even with the Mercury retrograde) - and everyone can expect at least a trio of pleasant events.

TOD:

First r/r 45 - if this counts VACATION by Miss Connie Francis, although my most played was the Disneyland 45 TALL PAUL by Miss Annette Funicello and the Afterbeats given to me by my aunt.

First soundtrack: GYPSY, still have it, still love it, and sometimes look at the cover when I play my CD.

First album - The Kirby Stone Four, for 88 cents.....

Bought a LOT of Beatles albums....but the group whose albums I loved was Eric Burden and the Animals.... MGM albums with great covers and great songs.

Good luck on the book signing, BK! May your tribe increase!

When I read the notes in my bleary morning state, I thought it said "Book singing" and thought "What a great idea! You can read excerpts from "Opening Out of Town" and then sing the musical bits!"

First album I remember buying on my own was BJ Thomas singing "Raindrops Keep fallin' On My Head" - not quite a soundtrack, but I bought it for the song that was on a soundtrack

First 45 - "One Bad Apple"/"He Ain't Heavy He's My Brother" by the Osmond Brothers

BK - I've read up through "Your Worst Nightmare," then went back and read "Opening Out of Town" again.  Haven't read the last two yet.

P.S. Is it coincidence that Ronni Kramer in "Maddie" is spelled with no e? :)  A brief tribute to dear friend Ronnik perhaps?

Good morning, all!  I slept late and loved every minute of it.  I need to hit the NYPL Theatre Collection today, but I fear it may be closed for Veteran's Day.  I'll take the bus ride down, check out the situation and either go the the library or come home.

The remainder of my day is tied up with The Brain, which hath me in thrall.

Good morning!

The last of our "summer" days today, and it looks to be a beautiful one.

It got up to 82 here yesterday. Not supposed to be quite that warm today, but high 70s for sure.

In fact, I think that was called DIANA ROSS AND THE SUPREMES GREATEST HITS even though when most of those songs became hits, the group was not called "Diana Ross and the Supremes."

I can't linger long here this morning. I've got to climb up on the roof and clean off the leaves that are gathering in flat places. I basically have to do this twice a year, or I get leaks on my back porch.

But it's a beautiful day to work outside, so I don't mind too much.

I probably won't get to the Brando MUTINY ON THE BOUNTY for awhile, but I'm disappointed to read it isn't razor-sharp. I'm sure it will look better than the laserdisc (the picture quality varied in it a great deal, too), but I was hoping for something really special with it.

Good morning dear Esteemed and soon-to-be-signing BK --

And a lovely morning wish to all of the assorted and assembled lovelies in and out of the Living Room today.

I have been horribly E&T for several days, but I am just about finished up with a big work project that I had.  So now, I get to be kind of back to "normal" ........for me anyway.

After being E&T for several days, I felt like I should atone in hebrew, to be really effective.  Unfortunately, when I try to do that, it sounds like I'm saying "Barack Obama" instead of anything that might be real.

Oh well, those are the problems of only being jewish-in-spirit !
