TOMORROW'S NOTES TODAY
« on: January 16, 2007, 12:10:47 AM »

Well, you've read the notes, you read them today even though they were written yesterday which was today when they were written although it is also today when they are posted but that was tomorrow at the time they were written today, and now it is time for you to post until tomorrow's cows come home today.

Desert island CDs: a performance of Rachmaninov's Symphony Number 2, not sure which.  Bill Evans with Symphony Orchestra.  The soundtrack to A Patch Of Blue coupled with To Kill A Mockingbird.  More later.

And now to Dr. Mabuse, after which I shall return briefly.  I think we should have ten pages of posts before 12:30.

Todays Chic Chick Tip!

"After you dream, you must do"
"   The only thing that separates you from the people who have what you want is the fact that they are out getting it while you are still dreaming it."

This brought me to full heaving sobs for many reasons, and I love it. It is something everyone needs to hear once in a while.

Welcome ten GUESTS!  Who is staying up this late to read the notes?  Come on in, the Mahler's fine.  And speaking of Mahler - I guess I'd have to have the Sixth Symphony.

Was it a "repressed skinner" that gave us the Mule Skinner Blues?

I posted that yesterday having read today's notes. It's all very confusing when you are 61.

If I was stranded on a desert Island I would be more concerned with getting of the scary island than listening to music...Is this also supposing I have a tv and vcr and dvd player and music box all plugged into some tree somewhere....? Having the music and movies with no way to watch them is like some scary twilight zone episode!

Too difficult.

der Brucer
and Buddy Holly, Bobby Darin, David Campbell and Michael Ball.

All too difficult to keep it to ten.  A Beethoven's 9th and an unfinished Schubert (that probably only counts as two-thirds of one). Soundtracks for "The Mission" and "Carousel" and the OBC of "Nine".

That's already more than another ten!

Good morning, all!  No, DR Jose, I'm not trying to piss off Local 802.  I'm hired as a consultant for Rodgers & Hammerstein and I'm doing my job.  I'm personally offended that 802 has let the producers cut orchestra minimums on Broadway so low that a "Broadway orchestra" is now the equivalent of a bar mitzvah band.  

And off my soapbox.  My BABES colleague is working this week on on the Lincoln Center production of THE COAST OF UTOPIA so my plans have changed for today.  I get to play at home and work on reports.  Goody!

TOD:
   Classical:
       Complete SLEEPING BEAUTY ballet (Tchaikovsky)
       Schubert "Trout" Quintet
       CARMEN (Troyano, Solti)
       PETER GRIMES
  OBC
       CANDIDE
       GYPSY
       ON YOUR TOES (revival)
       SITTING PRETTY (McGlinn/Studio cast)
Other:
       Guy Haines
       The Chad Mitchell Trio

Today's TOD reminds me - I really should re-work the stack of CDs in the car before our trip to Philly tomorrow.  Some of what's in the car now has been played to death.   :P

Good morning to the Early Boys. That sounds like a country band.

We had a very nice weekend, relaxed and simple. We did have visitors. Anthony's cousin and cousin-in-law (his cousin's wife) came over on Friday and we went to our new favorite Indian restaurant in Chelsea and had a great meal. The staff is very nice and they like us so we got rice pudding and spice tea for dessert for free. And as often happens in Indian restaurants, the bill was surprising cheap for so much good food.

My brother-in-law was in town this past week for a conference and he stopped by on Saturday for a visit.

Sunday was a quiet and uneventful day spent watching old movies, the latest episode of Ugly Betty and two episodes of As Time Goes By.

Yesterday we had a sparkling and witty visit from our resident musical genius, Mr. Larry Moore. We laughed and dished and spoke about friends (and enemies). It was a delightful morning. We then relaxed before entertaining another visitor (all these people want to see our tree). We entertained our dear friend, Randall. We laughed and ate and talked of good times and bad. A good evening was had by all.

This picture is NOT a shot of Randall and me but it is a shot of our friend, Andrea who had stopped by earlier in the week to view our tree. So, in an effort to keep the holidays going through the month of January we present

Ben and Anthony's tree (note the virtual fireplace in the background)!
