Good morning!

Another beautiful day here, and one that is supposed to be considerably warmer than the previous few days. Highs near 60 today and tomorrow, then back down for the new week.

Ill be spending a nice portion of my afternoon burning a DVD-R of YOLANDA AND THE THIEF while watching it.

I think I'll stick to my laserdisc of SUMMER HOLIDAY; that TCM broadcast version looked rather dated in color and seemed dark to me. The laserdisc is brighter with better color.

In something of a change from the norm, the ladies' long program at the National Figure Skating Championships will be shown live this afternoon rather than tonight. For the last decade or more, the ladies' final has been a prime time event on ABC. I suspect ratings have dropped to such a degree that ABC has returned the ladies' event to an afternoon slot.

The men don't even get ABC network coverage. Their final will be broadcast on ESPN2 tonight at 11 p.m EST. It's being broadcast live as well, and since it's taking place in Spokane, Washington, that accounts for the late East Coast hour. West Coast folks can watch it in prime time. I'll be recording it to watch tomorrow.

I love all of the lyrics to "It Was Just One of Those Things," but my special favorite portion is:

We'd have been aware
That our love affair
Was too hot
Not to cool down.

Love that internal rhyme "hot/not." Cole Porter was such a genius with clever lyrics.

For signed copies you must send me an e-mail or I shall not remember who needs what.  I can print out the e-mail and attach it to the order sheet and then I shan't forget anything.

For those Alison Hayes fans, I caught her as the female lead with Gene Barry in a Bat Masterson episode on The Westerns Channel.

Watched DON'T KNOCK THE ROCK (1956) last night. Fun movie and it is very interesting to see all of those rock and roll acts on screen...Bill Haley and the Comets, Little Richard (who I don't care for much, but I have to admint he was quite entertaining), The Applejacks (?), etc....and the dancing was fantastic! I even spotted one of my interviewees, Lynette Bernay, as one of the dancers in Bill Haley's first musical number.

Today I will watch ROCK AROUND THE CLOCK.

Lunchtime!  It's been a fairly civilized morning in the library - hope it stays that way throughout the afternoon.

I am planning to spend as much as this weekend as I can reconstructing www.brucekimmel.com.
I had a major crash and lost the whole site. I was able to reconstruct some page and retrieve many from an archival site, but this AM I am unable to get into the archival site. I hope I will be able to get at it later today.

~~~RECONSTRUCTION VIBES FOR DR MICHAEL SHAYNE!!~~~

The Sex Worker's Art Show tour last night was...unique.  I had no idea what to expect and it was ecclectic, to say the least.  One woman was from Japan and spoke very little English.  I don't think I could even describe what she did because it was just so unusual.  She is the only one who got completely nude (otherwise, when the strippers stripped, they had pasties on).  None of the men took anything off. :(

But for the most part, the evening was entertaining...but LONG!  There were only eight performers but the show was three hours!  There were a couple of strippers (one woman was small and skinny and very sultry the other woman had a large, curvy body, great talent and everyone LOVED her!...she was very good), a couple of readings by two of the men, an a capella rap song and some interaction with the audience.  The only performer who wasn't very good was this one very skinny black man who performed a couple of songs that he wrote.  His lyrics were very difficult to understand and he sang the melody in falsetto (he was introduced as a countertenor) and just played it in unison on his keyboard in octaves.  It was really quite boring.

Afterwards I got something to eat, came home and went to bed.  Now I need to go to work to make up some time and finish invoicing so that the bills can be paid.

I would need DR Tomovoz and Colin to bring me a parrot.

Speaking of which:

It is SOOOOOOO windy here today it's just plain crazy. The weather channel says 40 mph, it's at least that.  So our balmy 18 degrees is a -2 wind chill.  

The Siouxland Film Festival is late this afternoon and tonight. It's all shorts, one category by graduate students from across the country and one category for locals (meaning regional, really)  It was a blast last year and they had so many submissions this year that they are showing the almost made the finals at 4:00pm  and the finals at 7:00pm.    I think I'm just going to the finals. It's a lot of shorts and I have much to do

DR der Brucer ~ LOL (really I did -- real loud, too) with your post from late night yesterday's post:
1:  Preacher my ass -- good try -- it's some crazed wizard or insane scientist (or a combo of both)
2.  Your baby picture makes you look like a gnome -- a somewhat unsettling little gnome (your parents were saints to keep you and not send you back)
3.  Good, it looks like you have enough hair for me to come snatch you bald-headed the next time you post libelous postings about my parental skills or my darling little Boo-Key.  Don't make me call my lawyer...
