I decided to see if the form I was waiting for on Turbotax was available and lo and behold it was. So, I stayed up and filed my taxes.  Glad to have that done.

Back from opening night, and I have to say I am a VERY proud papa.  The finished product of my show was lightyears beyond my wildest expectations.  The transformation from even two days ago (when my parents saw it) is astounding.  It really is amazing what happens when you get an audience in there.  Lots of compliments all around and my heart was about ready to burst out of my chest when I got to talk with my cast afterwards.  Again, thank you for all of the good vibes -- and keep sending them tomorrow and Saturday for each and every one of the one-acts!

PARENTAL ADVISORY FOR THIS POST










Re Ugly Betty - Did Vanessa williams' character actually say something about a "duck whacking off" or did she say a "duck quacking off"

Well, I watched "Ugly Betty" and Willhelmina said (according the line that was actually displayed on the closed captioning), "WELL, AS LOVELY AS THAT SOUNDS, I'M A FEW YEARS AWAY FROM HAVING A DUCK QCK OFF IN MY FACE."

The closed captioning was in all caps and the word that was supposed to be "quack" was actually spelled "QCK."

That's not fair!  Besides, it's not the first time that this has happened for someone. ::)

Back from the screening of Experiment In Terror.  As was explained to us by some fool named Mike Schlesinger, the print they were promised of Mr. Cory fell through, but a collector came through with one so it was going to be shown.  Unfortunately, the collector came through with a !6mm print (faded, according to the completely unknowledgable Mr. Schlesinger).  Not only that, but a pan-and-scan 16mm print.  Unbelievable.  I watched the first five minutes and left.  Note to Mr. Schlesinger - the print was not faded at all - it had perfect color.  But I cannot watch a pan-and-scan atrocity of a Cinemascope film.  Experiment In Terror was great fun - it was, again according to Mr. Schlesinger, a newly-restored print.  Note to Mr. Schelsinger: Prints aren't restored, nor do black-and-white films from 1961 need to be restored.  It was a newly-struck print that didn't look so new, and wasn't especially well-printed, being murky, grainy, and slightly soft.

Would you like to borrow this for the gentleman?

The closed captioning was in all caps and the word that was supposed to be "quack" was actually spelled "QCK."  

But given the context of the situation being discussed....and what I "heard" (and closed-captioning often changes words)...the word she spoke was was "whack".

I don't think male ducks can make "duck sauce" by "quacking".

;D

If nothing else (if you haven't already thought about this), you could borrow a copy from a friend or your local library and burn a copy of the disc.  Or if your local library doesn't have it, they might (mind you, I said might) be able to get a copy through Inter-Library Loan (this suggestion comes from your not-so-local library worker...whose library system does not have this recording).  Just a suggestion (if you haven't already thought about this). :)

Thanks for the recommendation.  Highly doubtful any libraries picked this up.  It was a limited edition marketed to film music fans/collectors.  I could get a CD-R dub of the second disc....but I'd rather have an original.

;D

I have seen some closed-captioning where actual words are completely different for no reason.  "Battlestar Galactica" had an episode not too long ago where they spoke the phrase "Eye of Jupiter" but the closed-captioning displayed "Eye of Zeus."  Where'd that come from??

I certainly understand wanting an original disc.  That's one of the main reasons that I don't care to download whole CDs from iTunes...that and you don't get any booklet. :P
