A question for NYMF members: I have ordered my "free" tickets. Now I want to order tickets for Noel's show. Can I buy additional tickets or do I have to wait until Sept.?

The web site is not working well for me today...

Quick fringe picks:
And Somewhere Men are Laughing
Show Choir
The Winter's Tale Project

The last two are musicals

And Bukowsical, also a musical ...

The NYMF site was glitchy for me, too, DR Edi.

Good morning!

We hit an all-time record high yesterday of 104 in Charlotte. Today it's supposed to be 100, and then it's supposed to cool into the lower 90s. Still, it's beyond miserable here.

I hate summer.

Yes, BK, I was around  and very aware when MARNIE got its critical lambasting in the 1960s. I've never liked it, and it subbornly refuses to grow on me after years of trying to enjoy it. Obviously, many critics have come to appreciate it over the years.

TORN CURTAIN, however, was panned then and is still disliked by many. It's wildly underrated in my opinion. I've even read respected critics who rate TOPAZ ahead of TORN CURTAIN which I don't understand at all.

I liked Marnie when I saw it as a kid...haven't seen it since but I remember that it was the first "grown-up" film my parents let me watch (at the drive-in.)

Tonight for me are new episodes of MONK and PSYCH.

For those more attuned to science fiction, a new version of FLASH GORDON is premiering on Sci-Fi tonight (at 9 p.m., I believe). It has not gotten very good reviews, but that doesn't mean anything (note my comments on TORN CURTAIN above).

Does anyone here have access to Julie Andrews' LP of DON'T GO IN THE LION'S CAGE TONIGHT that could make a audio cassette or CD for me? I have never heard this entire album, and the two "Buy It Now" offerings on Ebay would cost $25 with postage added which I think is extreme.

I don't know how I passed it up when I was a member of the Columbia Record Club back in the 1960s. I remember it coming out, but I bought something else, and have never heard the whole thing, just the few songs from it that are on the Julie CD compilation A LITTLE BIT OF BROADWAY.

Just curious if anyone has access to it. Thanks.

Good morning, all!  Yesterday was a real depression day and I hope today is a much better one.  This is proof, DR Danise, that it doesn't get easier, six months after the death.  I had received an email from Susanna Moross Tarjan asking how my dad was doing.  This meant that I had forgotten to notify her at the time so, after writing back, I spent the remainder of the afternoon in a state and went to bed around 8:30.  I got up this morning around 10 am, and I'm feeling much better.

DR MattH, I can make you a copy of the Julie Andrews album; I believe it's my favorite of hers, although I always loved her early RCA recording on which she sang Noel Coward's moving "Matelot.".  When I was doing WHERE'S CHARLEY? in 2004, Tony Walkton and I talked about it a lot.  It was one of the recordings I bought around 1966 or so and played to death.  I couldn't wait for a CD release.

Today, back to the NYPL, tomorrow night, "Bukowsiical," for which I bought tickets while we tjhught DR Cason was playing the role.  I have to buy an Amtrak ticket to DC today as well.

TOD:
  DVD:  UPSTAIRS DOWNSTAIRS, final disc; HOT FUZZ (Region 1 or Region 2?);
  CD: Guy Haines, The Brain from Planet X,  LA Pique Dame (Tchaikovsky)
  VCR:  cheep cheep cheep!!!

I, too, liked TORN CURTAIN very much. It's one of my favorite Hitchcock films.

Well, even if you don't get to see me on stage right now (we'll save it for the Brain!), we'll still get to see one another, right?

If anybody can direct me to any spoilers for SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE (i.e., who made it through to the top 4) can you please post the link.

The results/elimination show was taped last night. But i think they taped all possible endings. So the audience would not know who was gone.

Does anyone watch the show FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS? One of my CLOSER producers introduced me to that yesterday and I found it on HBO's "On Demand" on Comcast. It's just the right combination of elements that I find very funny, and I haven't found much that makes me laugh lately.

(That sounds more depressing than it really was meant to be...)

I sampled one episode, but I just didn't warm to it and haven't checked it out further. Might not be a bad idea to give it another shot.

Friday!!!

About 2/3rd's of a house last night.  Much cooler....both air coolers are now working.  

Show went well....lots of NEW acting by a couple of people who must have been saving it for the show...didn't hear those readings or singing during the rehearsals...not that any of it was an improvement.

And you will be glad to hear that El Gallo did not come and stand beside me on the steps during my BIG speech.  No, he decided to walk across the front of the stage while I was talking, blocking me from the audience.

Ass!  I told him afterwards to PLEASE not do that!  "Oh, I was just trying to get out of your way....."

MURDER AT THE PLAYHOUSE.....I can see the Banner Graphic headline now.

JURY FINDS JUSTIFIABLE HOMICIDE!

But, of course! I'm taking Matthew, my best friend from college, for his birthday tomorrow night.  We're going out for a snack after.  Would you like to come along?

I think I liked it because I worked in music video for years, and there's so much of that element in it. I think the lyrics to the songs are funny and the way it's directed and the way the shots are composed makes me laugh.

Then again, I liked COP ROCK!

And I feel the same about all most of you!  Unfortnately, that offers no antidote to depression or grief or other awful emotions to which we may be prone.
