In reply to yesterday's anagram of Jose S. Piano's name (given by Pulliam), I offer the following:

From Larry yesterday:

    * 1GB memory
 
It means you have a fast computer with a very nice amount of memory (2 gigs would have been even better but that comes at a price)


DR Ben, I did pay extra for that so I now have 2 GB of memory.

Good morning, all! I'm feeling lazy and aimless this morning.  I know that at 5:00 pm I'm seeing the NYMF production of SHERLOCK HOLMES (THE EARLY YEARS) and around 10:00 pm I have a date for margaritas with the lovely Miss Erin Webley, who leaves Monday for the ALabama Shakespeare production of PETER PAN choreographed by the talented Adam Cates.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Happy Birthday Greetings To Our DR JMK !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
[/move]

I was just given a fascinating series of documents from the estate of Anne Caldwell, co-librettist for THE LADY OF THE SLIPPER for Victor Herbert and librettist for THE NIGHT BOAT and THE STEPPING STONES for Jerome Kern; she later went to Hollywood and wrote the screenplay for DIXIANA for Wheeler and Woolsey.  What I was given was a copy of several drafts of a film treatment for BABES IN TOYLAND, intended for Dorothy Lee, an actor I don't know - Tom E. Marshall - and Wheeler & Woolsey, dated July 3, 1930. It's very dark and spooky, and not at all like the Hal Roach version for Laurel & Hardy.

Happy day to JMK.

 I loved "Tall Story."  Yes,  it's weak and predicatable, but Tony Perkins was soooo cute in it. I  realized that even at the age of of 5 or 6.  I liked Jane Fonda, and Ray Walston played Ray Walston.  I also thought college life would be nice like that.

Torchwood tonight.  Of course, it's out of sequence with the Doctor Who finale of last night, since the last three eps of the season for Doctor Who take place immediately after the first season finale of Torchwood, which is only, what, five episodes in, in it's broadcast on BBC America.

Time to start getting ready for work.

And, afterwards, der B and I will (hopefully) go downtown to take some pictures.  This is the annual Greyhound Weekend, officially in Dewey Beach (the next town southward) but there's plenty of spillover.

Good morning all!

I have been awake since 5AM and turned on the TV. I saw a version of BABES IN TOYLAND with a teenage Drew Barrymore and Richard Mulligan. Oooh...the production value was terrible. This must have been a made-for-TV movie?

Perhaps DR Elmore can shed some light on it? I couldn't watch it for more than 5 minutes...

Good morning!

Moderately cool but very muggy this morning. The humidity is HEAVY in the air, and it makes everything feel kind of soggy. Ugh!

And hotter temperatures during the wek ahead. Bah!

I used to see laserdiscs of that movie in cutout bins for $1. I knew it must be a dog, but I've never bothered to watch it.

Late this morning and during the early afternoon, I want to catch up on some of the TV shows that are on my DVR. Particularly eager to see THE OFFICE and MOONLIGHT. They will come first.

Tonight I'll either start on MEDIUM (Season 3) or ROCKY & BULLWINKLE (Volume 2) which takes three adventures from the show's five seasons on the air and shows the adventures in order without the other filler and cartoons from the shows. Of course, fans of the shows like I am LOVED those other cartoons as much as the R&B adventures, but these R&B sets feature only the serialized adventures in order without everything else that made the show so great.

Yes, I already have TORCHWOOD programmed into the DVR for recording tonight. I'll be watching something else on DVD when it airs. I may try to get it watched before I come upstairs for my late evening internet surf.

I can indeed.  The romantic lead was played by a young Keanu Reeves, the new score was by Leslie Bricusse and only two Victor Herbert numbers were used: Toyland and The March of the Toys.

BK, you aren't the only one who has lamented the weak state of the Esther Williams films on DVD. Though some look better than others in this set, one in particular - EASY TO WED - is easily the worst Technicolor transfer I've seen since PIN-UP GIRL (from Fox), and I said so WEEKS ago.
