My DVR will be recording it. I am unsure if I like the show or not...Janice is not my favorite type of person...and I really adore her business partner...and she didn't like the girl from Oregon .

Well, just turn the sound down and enjoy the scenery.  ;)  Btw, the male models are featured in the second half of tonight's program - I just watched it.  So, use that fast forward button.

As for tonight's "American Idol"...  Just how many more preliminary rounds to we have to sit through?  And just how much more humiliation do we have to witness?

While it's true that Jeff RIchards was dubbed in SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS (so was Matt Mattox) and didn't dance in the "Barn Raisin' - Part I," he was a part of "Lonesome Polecat" which was an excruciatingly difficult number for a non dancer to perform with that very precise rhythm and movement in one long take.

There is one more night of auditions and then a clip show of rejects, both next week. The Hollywood rounds follow on the following week.

I finished HARRY POTTER AND THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN. Very good transfer, video and audio.

Next I put in PRESENTING LILY MARS. I started with the special features where I watched the finale presented in stereo surround sound. Made it very enjoyable, and what a treat to see Judy dancing with Charles Walters. They also had the audio outtake for "Paging Mr. Greenbacks" which I also enjoyed.

Then, I began the feature itself and got about 30 minutes in. Judy and Van Heflin seemed like a good pair. Too bad they didn't do other films together. Of course, his not being particularly musical limited the kinds of films she could do with him, but they made a good match.

Warners hasn't done anything special with this transfer. There are speckles and dirt and even some scratches in the first third that I've watched. Some of Judy's close-ups were soft looking. Were they diffusing the lens for her close-ups in 1943?

I did enjoy the New York round of auditions. Of course, there were the usual weirdos and psychos, but I genuinely enjoyed the few talented people they showed us. I was particularly pleased to see the guy who bowed out during last year's Hollywood round come back and try to get another shot at it. It'll be fun following his story in Hollywood again.

I think there were a total of 6 of these early round places. Whether NY counts as one or two of the six, I am not certain. Birmingham does not look promising.

I liked MEDIUM tonight very much. The killer was pretty easy to spot, but the reasoning only became clear late in the show. But it was a satisfying story for me this week.

BTW, did they ever say that they found the other dead man's body parts and arrested his wife for the murder?

I saw a play last night called TRANSLATIONS. Lots of Irish history kind of stuff. I wish I could say it was something I dig. It had some great acting, but strayed too far from any kind of coherent plot.

Good weather vibes, and to the Philadelphia area as well!  My friend I visited there is scheduled for her last chemo & treatment tomorrow.  It would be a shame if anything prevented her from completing this very difficult process so she can begin her recovery.

Have a nice visit with Molly.

The weather people are calling for snow squalls throughout the day, but it shouldn't be enough to hinder any travel.  In any case, I'll emit some no-snow vibes tomorrow.

That's awesome that you are reading the Harry Potter books now, Matt. I am amazed at how you find the time. I wanted to ask you with that TIVO or whatever, do you just zap right through the commercials on TV?

No, I don't think a spoiler is needed. There were two murders. In one, the man admitted the wife killed him early in the show. It was the other murder that had a mystery identity that we didn't find out until much later.

MEDIUM SPOILER





I found the final scene between the two dead men rather creepy, where the older guy said the woman who was being spied on could have been happy she mattered so much to someone.  But it's a voyeur who was just spying on her from afar, and making believe he was interested in her work because of his distant feelings.  Very creepy, I thought, not even remotely romantic.

But otherwise quite gripping.

Oh, sure. I never watch commercials if I'm watching a DVR recording.

Sounds good. Just wanted to check just in case. I have sort of given up on the show, so it's no bother to me. I love the family but have grown weary of the mysteries.

CARNIVAL STORY. I used to own on a $1.99 VHS. Steve Cochran is quite good in that. He's one of my favorite underrated actors.

Nightline tonight is the "snub" of Dreamgirls for Best Picture.  This deserves time on what used to be a very good news show?

BK - I had dropped something in the mail to you on Tuesday morning, which I hope will get to you by Thurs. or Fri.  Is the dreaded package place the same place where you get ordinary first class business letter type stuff?  If so, hope there's no problem with regular mail.

Not as it stands, FJL, because currently their vision for that column is musicals, a fact I'd like to change in time.

I was disappointed yesterday, but move on, people! I can't believe they'd give time to this unless they're going to try to make it some sort of racial snub. Ridiculous!

I watched Julie Taymorís THE MAGIC FLUTE on Great Performances.  It was very truncated, but beautifully designed and staged.  I was supposed to do a little work at home tonight, but I couldn't tear my eyes or ears away from the tv.  I wish I had recorded this.

I agree with you about Steve. He could be very sinister and menacing  but he could also play comedy. I liked him a lot.
