TOD:

Soundtrack -- The King & I

Orig. cast -- I think Milk & Honey (if there was one).  I just know that I got to go up to L.A. to the old Temple Baptist Church (also called Philharmonic Hall) and see Molly Picon in the tour company of M.& H.

45 -- I wasn't a big 45 fan......I was usually listening to the music tracks from old RKO and Warner musicals on TV.  

I hate to admit this, but at my grandmother's house, our record selection was mainly 78s, and it was still an acoustic Victor phonograph to listen to.

Well there is a god......

Even after infuriating the E&T gods, I still got to kick-start a page !

But come to think of it......Mark Foley probably said the same thing.

Saturday morning greetings!  It is still morning, isn't it?  I slept late today and woke up feeling a cold coming on.  Say it isn't so!

Thank you all for the late night MiL vibes.  I haven't heard from her today, but will check in on her soon.

Best job-hunting vibes for DR Vixmom!

I'm up, I'm up, after a decent night's sleep.  I probably would have slept later, but the phone rang and I was greeted with the lovely voice of Miss Emily Skinner, and we discussed the cover of the CD for awhile.  The gals had something very specific they wanted, and while it's definitely different I'm going with it, partly because I like them, and partly because of the fact that stores are not really an issue and people won't be thumbing through CDs, but just purchasing it at various online places.

BK, sorry I will miss your book signing!  Eat a piece of cake for me (it won't hurt your abs and buns of steel) and please say hi to Malcolm and Christine for me!  

Sorry to hear about Heavy Rotation (I assume that's the one you're talking about).  A great store!

I can't recall my first soundtrack ever bought.  It might have been Captain From Castile...or merely some Elvis Presley movie.   Or it might have been "Hey, Let's Twist!" featuring Joey Dee and the Starliters.  I believe that was the title of the movie.

Back from a brisk jog, which helped wake me up.

Pogue - yes, it's Heavy Rotation, not only a great store, but one that is a mere two blocks from the home environment.

Hello all!
TOD - First cast album - boy I don't remember. My family always bought cast albums so I can't remember which one I bought first. I usually didn't need to buy them because someone in the family would.

The very first lp I bought on my own was The Jackson Five Third Album

Hey, der B and I are just now taking a break from the Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival.  This is the first chance I've had to post!

So far, we've seen a film called Mentor, starring Rutger Hauer, who isn't getting any prettier.  IMDB calls it "Thought provoking."  The thought der B and I shared on leaving the theater was that it wasn't very good.

Basically, his thought was that if a film is going to be a character study, it helps if the characters are interesting in some way.

This evening, der B and I will be seeing a film from Macedonia, titled Bal-Can-Can, which is billed as a comedy, and a film from Poland, titled The Master, which is not (but some of the people in the ticket line saw an earlier showing and said the cinematography was fantastic).

Der Brucer is actually going to watch films with English subtitles!  Will wonders never cease!

Went shopping and found a little Russian market that I didn't previously know existed. Bought some type of cake.

Then went went to Best Buy and bought a DVD set of 20 1930s/40s exploitation films with titles like SHE SHOULD'A SAID NO, TERROR OF TINY TOWN, SLAVES IN BONDAGE, ESCORT GIRL, and THE MARIJUANA MENACE. I am sure that each of these films will be highly educational. And the set of 20 movies only cost $6.00!

Then stopped at an estate sale where I purchased a vintage 1950s suit and tie that I may wear to the opening night of THE BRAIN FROM PLANET X...in keeping with the vintage theme (if I can find a hat to go with it).

And also found an old Photoplay magazine with some nifty shots of Allison Hayes in it.

It must be a slow news day everywhere.

Fox News just ran a story about freeze-drying dead pets.

I can remember when freeze-dried fruit in breakfast cereal was news.

I think the first cast album I purchased was "Once Upon a Matress"

Soundtrack -- I don't know

Other - may have been Michael Jackson's "Thriller" on cassette

Well, I just finished baking oatmeal raisin cookies while listening to GREY GARDENS ocr.  I have now prepared a cornish game hen by putting apples and onions in the cavity instead of stuffing and basted it with the butter I briefly cooked the apples and onions in, then popped it in the oven.  I have some sweet potatoes, so I think I'll bake one.  Not sure what else...maybe corn...after all Jerry likes my corn

The cats took turns sitting on the island watching me while I cooked. Sometimes I think they believe I have to be supervised by a feline and they work in shifts, lol.

Got my "roof cleaning" done with little or no trouble. Glad to have that finished for the fall and winter months.

It's a beautiful sunny day here....very cold, but the sun is beautiful. We lucked out here. We got snow, but only a dusting and it's already melted. Not far north of here they got about 7 inches of the white stuff.   I love snow, but still have things to do, so I'm not quite ready for it yet. I'm hoping tomorrow is warmer than predicted so I can do some caulking.

Also got the London cast album with Peter Marshall and Chita....such fun.

Would you believe that I have this London cast album on CD and have never listened to it. I keep meaning to, but it slips my mind and I end up pulling something else off the shelf.

I really will try to pull it down this week for a quick listen. I do love the score so much.

I watched OVER THE HEDGE as I prepared and ate lunch. Very enjoyable, quite hilarious in some spots, and the voice cast was superb.

I watched several of the special features on the OVER THE HEDGE disc, too including the cast talking about their roles (and getting to see them recording variations of their lines for the director so he could pick the performance he liked best. Very interesting.

There was a "Making of" documentary that I also watched parts of.
