Back from an interesting afternoon of movies, telephone conversations, and figure skating.

The movie was YOLANDA AND THE THIEF. What a beautiful Technicolor print they have! Now, what they need to do is some digital scrubbing to get rid of some pesky artifacts (not that much) and the vibrant neon green reel change markers. But unlike the print of SUMMER HOLIDAY I was watching last night that had what looked like water spotting and a drab look to it, YOLANDA is in generally good shape.

Much superior to the muted color on the videotape I have.

As for the skating, alas, none of the ladies skated up to their potentials. Kimmie Missener, the current world champion, won over Emily Hughes by less than a point, a very, very close final score. Had Emily not fallen on a triple flip, and gotten a one point deduction, she would have won the competition. Alicia Ciszney took third place but won the long program phase of the competition.

TOnight, the men take to the ice, but as it comes on at 11 p.m. EST, I'll be recording rather than watching live.

I still have SUPERNATURAL to watch which I'll do later tonight, and as for tonight's movie choice, well, I still have PRESENTING LILY MARS to finish and then I'll go to the to-watch shelf to pick something.

I'll save another Charlie Chan movie for tomorrow afternoon.

Off to the to-watch shelf now to make tonight's selection and then settle in with it and SUPERNATURAL.

Bear with me, my friends.
My old compaq presario kicked the bucket this morning, so naturally I simply had to go shopping.
I've ended up with an HP Pavilion PC, and oy! have I got my work cut out for me. Importing addresses, remembering my favorite websites, collecting all my photo files, yada yada.
I'll be on and off and on and off and lost and alone on some forgotten highway until I master this new media-centric tower sitting before me.

Oh, my accompanist Matt Brown, who is also a computer genius, will be coming over on Sunday evening for what was going to be an evening of music, but now may turn into an evening of removing hard drives and copying files or whatever it is that computer geeks do to old computers when new ones are purchased.

Thanks again for even more of the lovely B'day wishes.

Don't despair TD.... It will all eventually "import" over to your new machine.

And when all the world looks dark, and you don't know what to do.......... Just go hug Boo-Key !

And thanks for the "Plan 9" answers.... I was kind of wondering if that might be what it was from.

Yes, Eros was our role model for Zubrick.  But, I ended up liking Zubrick better.

Back from a long but fun day away.  Grant and I had a good time browsing books, he bought what he wanted, and we lunched at Dolores, where I had a yummilicious Jumbo Jim double-decker cheeseburger and Suz-Q fries with extra Z sauce.

One of my favorite lyrics is a simple one by Ellen Fitzhugh (from the show Herringbone, which Skip wrote with her and Tom Cone):

Strange as it seems.
It's strange as it seems,
And apt to get quite a bit stranger

Oh, I try to go see that every time it comes to Philly.  I love the flying acrobat acts.
