THE WEDNESDAY THAT FELT LIKE A WEDNESDAY
« on: January 17, 2007, 12:17:31 AM »

Well, you've read the notes, the notes were very Wednesday-like, and now it is time for you to post until the Wednesday cows come home - Wednesday cows usually come home on a Sunday.

BK, I never got Joan Ryan's CD in its original release, so I'm very much looking forward to the reissue...and I loved her in Ruthless!:  The Musical!  My questions about the reissue...will it be identical to the original release in content and pictures (except for the label, of course)?  Will it be remastered to sound better than ever?  Should I get the original release so that my collection will be complete or will the new release be enough?  Inquiring minds want to know!

Although I'm here by myself I will say Good Morning to all.

Winter temperatures have arrived in New York. When I left the apartment it was 19 degrees. It's supposed to be cold for the remainder of the week. It is January after all.

No questions at the moment. I need to wash my oatmeal bowl so I will bid you adieu for now.

Later, gaters.

I do recommend Joan Ryan's CD. It's a real winner.

The first track I think is the best first track I ever heard on a solo cd. It immediately draws you making you want to listen to the rest of the cd. The song Trust the Wind written by David Friedman is wonderfully orchestrated and dynamically sung.

The other tracks include a song that I think only she has recorded called "Good Thing He Can't Read My Mind written by Christine Lavin. A amusing "specialty" type of songs.  Also on the cd is a rousing West End Avenue and a touching  My Brother Lived in San Francisco.

 There are two different takes on classic Braodway tunes, I'm Flying and Shall We Dance? that are very different from any other recording that I've ever heard.

The other songs included on  the cd are: I Won't Last a Day Without You, Feels Like Home, The Moon & The Stars, Strangers Once Again, and I'm Coming Home Again.  The last three songs also rarely recorded songs.

There is a "bonus Track" taken from the STAGE Concert Lerner Loewe, Lane  & Friends recording a interesting combination of a hauntingly sung Follow Me and a soaring On A Clear Day You Can See Forever.

The tracks on Joan Ryan's cd are well sequenced and dare I say the best put together CD I think I have ever heard and I have heard hundreds and hundreds. A great combination of well known and "unknown" songs that are wonderfully orchestrated and arranged.
It is a cd that is repeatedly listen to me and I should have put it on my desert island list.

Joan Ryan needs to better known. A beautiful singer and performer. I have seen in concert and I look forward to seeing her again and if she records another cd I would buy it without a moment of hesitation.

So when it is up for pre-order get it!

I should get der Brucer up soon.  He wanted us to hit the road by ten, so that we can make the matinee in Philly this afternoon.

I haven't checked yesterday's posts yet... I hope you all didn't keep him up too late last night!

Never mind, sounds like he's aroused himself woken up on his own.

Time to get going.  There's tires that need checking, CDs that need swapping, doggies to have bowls filled.

The weather looks good!

Have a wonderful time, everyone!

-----------

The other tracks include a song that I think only she has recorded called "Good Thing He Can't Read My Mind written by Christine Lavin.

"Good Thing...." was recorded by Christine Lavin herself during her stint as one of the "Four Bitchin' Babes".  She recorded it for an album by the same title as the song, and I also remember a live "Bitchin' Babes" concert recording.   A great song.  One of the teachers at Catholic University used to give it out to her students.

Christine Lavin is one of those singer-songwriters who along with others like Nanci Griffiths are Julie Gold are continuing the "folk" legacy of people like Pete Seeger, Peter, Paul & Mary.

For a particularly "entertaining" record, I'd suggest her album, "Getting In Touch With My Inner Bitch".  ;)  And some of the "Four Bitchin' Babes" albums have had some inventive Beatles-type cover art.

*However, she also writes some wonderful children's songs too.

Re: last night's AMERICAN IDOL premiere.


I have not read any of the comments here yet. But here is my opinion.  The show was okay, although as i've stated before i actually prefer when the top 100 or so go to hollywood.

And in the audition shows i actually prefer watching the medium and talented people a lot more than the very bad ones.

A few people i really liked were: the black girl who was born a crack baby.  The 16 yr old guy (blondish) with a nice voice who said his parents did not support him (he called his mom after to tell her and he started crying). I also liked the brunette with frizzy long hair.

I felt really sad about the rock star guy with the deep voice. I would have liked to see him go through even if just to see if he would change his style.

I could not figure out that superfan (big blonde girl). I just can't imagine that she did not do this as a joke.

As for Ask BK Day...

Is there something, some activity that you have never done that, at least according to the line of work you're in, the area you live, etc., that you "should" have done by now?

For example... Like many people who live in the Washington, DC, Area, I have not been to all the Smithsonian museums.  And I even like art!

And as another "example"...

I'm a pianist.  I'm a theatre pianist.  I love musical theatre.  But...

I've never seen a Jerry Herman musical all the way through.  On the stage, nor on the screen.

Until I get to know the teams I'm unfamiliar with, I'll be cheering for the Barbies, also.  Of all the teams from the last TAR, they were the only ones I could stand (in fact, I did not bother to watch the final episode.)

And Dave and Mary do not belong in an "All-Star" edition.  The producers should have included a couple of the Linz siblings, instead.

Good morning!

It's pretty outside, but it's COLD! Yep, we finally got the cold weather so many other people have been having this winter. Supposed to get even colder tomorrow, so I'll be bundling up and staying inside all day today.

RE AMERICAN IDOL:

The woman who sang a la Bert Lahr's "If I Were King of the Forest," I have a feeling she was trying to be this year's William Hung.

BTW, I really did like the Navy man who was chosen to go on. I think he will be very, very popular.

I had TERMINATOR 2 on Blu-ray come in yesterday's mail, but I think I'll save it for the weekend. It's a long movie, and I'd rather watch shorter films and recorded TV shows during the day.

As I mentioned last night, I recorded TRAVELS WITH MY AUNT last night, and I want to watch it today along with the two one hour dramas I recorded last night.

As for the two hours of IDOL tonight, I'm leaving it open. I'll start it, but if the talent is as lacking as every article I've read about the auditions claims, I may bail out early and put on a DVD instead.
