I hate calling it John McGlinn's SHOW BOAT because I can't stand Maestro McGlinn!

But I think it's the best recording he ever did.

Re: last night's Golden globes.

I did not get to see the pre-show so the only fashion i saw were from the winners and the presenters.

From what i did see my favorite dress was jennifer lopez's long black number.  I also thought that reese witherspoon's short yellow dress was sweet. And vanessa williams looked really nice (except i did not like her bushy hair).

As for the awards, i really liked that the cast of Ugly Betty won for best show. IT is a really good show and they were all so excited.  I was also happy that America Ferrera won for Betty. All the other women are good. But this is betty's first year and she really seems quite different from her character.

Other winners i loved: Meryl streep (she's just so gracious),  Helen Mirren (same for her), Jennifer hudson (very happy for her), Dreamgirls winning best movie,  kyra sedgwick (love her).


One thing that i don't like is that for the tv awards the supporting actors for series are mixed with the miniseries. The miniseries always seem to win and it's really not fair to lump them together.

As for the show I thought the cecile b demille award just went on forever. That was the only part i tuned out.  IT was like 30 minutes and just went on and on.

I also was a bit disappointed that the show started right at 8pm. I wish nbc had done some red carpet. Or at least when they were showing everybody at the beginning SHOW THEIR DRESSES. i don't want to see people's faces.

Well, it is the Golden Globe Awards... Not the First Awards Show of Awards' Season Fashion Show.  ;)

In any case...

Did any of the cable networks have a Red Carpet pre-show this year?

DR ELMORE - I think the TOP CHEF judge you are talking about is Food & Wine magazine editor Gail Simmons.  8)

http://www.bravotv.com/Top_Chef_2/bios/gail_simmons.shtml

There is a non-chef related elimination this week, if the promos are not misleading - and some boards seem to think it concerns a prank and Marcel's hair and Cliff.  We shall see tomorrow night.  ;D

Is that woman hostile or what?  I love the show, although I think PROJECT RUNWAY is more fun.

PWOJECT WUNWAY is a LOT more fun.  And after TOP CHEF there is another similar show DESIGN CHALLENGE or something that puts interior designers up against each other.....that might be fun.  I see a pillow fight!!

I really like Marcel and Ilan - it is just crazy that people like Betty on TOP CHEF and Angela on the last WUNWAY thought they went as far as they did on their meager talents, it's just that more talented people made bigger mistakes.  Both of them should have been gone WEEKS before they actually were.

There are a couple....well ONE....actor in it that I really don't like, but maybe the rest of the movie will make up for him.

I have to agree with the reviewer who wrote (and I thought this from the time I bought the Cast Album a LONG time ago) - for a musical about a specific time in MUSIC - the songs themselves were not representative of era OR the genre.  And in fact a lot of them were VERY ordinary.

As for the Topic of the Day...

"Barber - Knoxville: Summer of 1915", Dawn Upshaw, soprano - And even though there are some other selections on this disc, I'd be very happy with just the Barber.  Although, the Menotti and Stravinsky would get semi-regular listens too.

"Beethoven - The Complete Sonatas" - Richard Goode, pianist - Which reminds me, he owes me a coaching.

"Fauré: Mélodies" - Gérard Souzay, baritone; Elly Ameling, soprano; Dalton Baldwin, piano.

Sunday in the Park with George - OCR

"Ella Fitzgerald Sings The Harold Arlen Songbook" - Ella Fitzgerald (with those amazing Billy May arrangements and orchestrations).

Violet - OCR

James Taylor - "Greatest Hits"

Follies In Concert

"Brahms: The Piano Concertos; Fantasien, Op. 116" - Emil Gilels, piano; Berlin Philharmonic; Eugen Jochum, conductor.

"Ravel: The Complete Works for Solo Piano" - Walter Gieseking, piano.

DR jhvw had a interesting photo to post yesterday:

TIMBERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!

DR LAURA is Home From Pomona.  I think that would be a Golden Globe winning movie....Home From Pomona with Meryl Streep and Helen Mirren and Helen.  With special appearances by Jamie Foxx and Sasha Baron Cohen

A few of my DESERT ISLAND CD's have been chosen:

Carmina Burana
Sunday in the Park w/George

I would also take:

Guy Haines - 2 CD's but I would put them in the same case, so they only count as one.

Gypsy Soundtrack

Not of this Earth - the film music of Ronald Stein

and I will have to think of the others....hmmmm....tough choices.

Tuesday morning greetings.  The big mystery today is:  Will there be AV capability in the Main Library Auditorium by 1:30pm.  That's the start time for the January edition of Grantseeking Basics, for which I need PowerPoint and an internet connection.  The Geniuses have ONLY known about this since 'way before Christmas.  They're working on Plan C (Plans A and B having failed already this morning) as I type.

DR GINNY - I feel your pain.

Since the genius took over the Theatre website - only ON the condition that ALL information be posted in a timely manner (he's is using a Web Designer software that I don't have) - grrrrrrrrrrr.

No updates since December 6 - and there are a LOT of things that have to be up NOW.  Including print media pointing to the website for further info...that isn't there!  GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

Good morning!

Completely gray out and supposedly we are getting rain. Temps have dropped about 15 degrees from our spring-like Monday, but mid 50s is still just fine for January.

But it's going to get much colder as the week progresses.
