PICKLED HERRING

Well, you've read the notes, the notes were filled with both daring-do and herring-do, and now it is time for you to post until the cows come home - they're slightly pickled right now.

Is Ms Ryan going to sing another song by Ms Warren? IMHO  "Feels like Home" was very much a low point on her album. "Moon and Stars" was not much better.  It's the songs not the singer.

LA TIMES
Quote
When you think you know your friend
'Traveler' pilot opens with a mystery on Rollerblades and a profound distrust of the authorities

By Mary McNamara, Times Staff Writer

Let's look at the bright side. Scandals coming out of places like Guantanamo Bay and Abu Ghraib may have set us back a few hundred years in the eyes of the world and left many Americans feeling paranoid and skittish about their government, but they've made the setups for TV shows about innocent folks on the lam a lot easier to swallow.

"Traveler," which debuts Thursday night on ABC at 10, is a post-9/11 "The Fugitive" crossed, perhaps, with "The Paper Chase." Jay Burchell (Matthew Bomer), Tyler Fog (Logan Marshall-Green) and Will Traveler (Aaron Stanford) are a fun-lovin' trio fresh out of grad school and embarking on the classic road trip, Kerouac in hand. The starting point is New York, and Will dares his two friends to Rollerblade through the "Drexler Museum of Art," whatever that is, as one last madcap prank.
...
It's all very tense and fun, underscored by sirens and ominous techno music, shot in that popular, over-caffeinated jumpiness that here at least makes sense, lighted up by the all-American good looks of Bomer and sulky rich-boyishness of Marshall-Green.

(SPOO, they just lost BK)

I completely agree - those are the sorts of songs she tries to foist on me because she "connects" with them - and I have not allowed one of them to be in the act.  This act is for mainstream audiences, mostly older, and while there is some "newish" material, none of it is like those songs, and all are by established songwriters.

'Law & Order' may move to cable

Quote

The long-running cops-and-laywers show may appear on TNT in the fall.
By Matea Gold, Times Staff Writer
May 9, 2007

NEW YORK -- "Law & Order," the crime procedural that has been a fixture of NBC's schedule for 17 seasons, may move to cable next fall in an effort to stretch out the run of the ratings-poor but profitable show.

TNT, which already airs repeats of the drama, is in negotiations with NBC Universal Television Studio to broadcast new episodes of "Law & Order" if NBC decides not to renew it for another season, according to sources familiar with the discussions.

Of course Miss Ronstadt singing Mr Newman's song - "Feels Like Home" - wonderful. (Better than the Bonnie Raitt version on the "Faust"album.

My presentation is this morning so I shan't be around much. I'm heading downstairs to make sure everything is in working order, unlike my silly colleague who did Part One of the presentation yesterday. He does it every year and he never seems to learn. He doesn't use Power Point (not that he has to, God knows people overuse PP) and the handouts are ridiculous. They are even more ridiculous when he begins to photocopy them 20 minutes before his presentation and then runs into problems with the copy machine and doesn't have a staple remover and he's late for his own seminar! Thankfully, we don't present together. He comes off looking unprepared and unprofessional so my time this morning looks fresh and together. Am I bragging? Maybe a bit, but I'm also happy that he shoots himself in the foot like this become some people in this organization seem to be blinded by his "charm" and I use the word with caution, feeling he is quirky and adds new elements to a presentation. If you call hemming and hawing and participants looking at their watches new elements, far be it from me to complain.

On that note, I'm outta here for a while.

Later, gaters.

I'd better get going.  My feet/legs are feeling better, but I've got a lot to do today, and I think I need doughnuts.
