Hello, gents!

I forgot to mention that I had fun yesterday walking by all the famous NYC HHW haunts yesterday on my walk to and from St. Clement's.  Including: Piece O' Chicken, Amy's Breads, Westside Cottage II, and Pietrasanta.

My sincere congratulations to BK, Noel, FJL (and Skip) for those wonderful reviews from Mr. Filichia.

It was exciting to have three shows in the Festival created by HHW members, but to have all three be considered among the best of show is awesome.

I am hoping the Brockman Collection is in alphabetical order so that titles can be found easily.

...And I'm sort of surprised I'm up since I ended up staying later than expected last night.  I went ahead and finished reading Phoebe Damrosch's "Service Included" which turned out to cover a bit of her personal life in addition to her brief stint as a captain at the luxe Per Se in the Time-Warner Center.  A very good read, funny, smart and surprisingly touching at times.

As for the Topic of the Day...

CDs - 2000?  3000?  Someday I'll get them all back in alphabetical order or some sort too.  And I'd say that my Classical collection still makes up about 60% of my library, with Cast Recordings filling in the next biggest slice on the pie chart.

DVDs - Maybe just around 200-300.  -Which is actually more than I ever thought I'd own, believe it or not.

Good morning, all! I'm tidying the aparment and cleaning off the computer table before the Mac Mechanic shows up at 1 pm to set up the new Mac and get my printer in running order.  Tonight at 6:30 I have a dinner date with Alex Rybeck whom I've not seen socially. except in passing. since March 2006.

I'm currently listening to the soundtrack for THE KING & I: such beautiful orchestrations, and who castTerry Saunders and the singer for Lun-Tha? Dreadful voices!

Beyond that, little to report: a summit meeting on Wednesday at noon, continued Toyland work, and various errands this week.  I had strange dreams last night - back in college, heigh-ho - about several friends (I only rememebr DR Ben and my retired friend Kevin who now lives in Amsterdam) all of whom were looking much younger than they or I do now.  All I remember now is an intense search for a saucepan in the kitchen of the house I was living in.  And, at 4:22 am, I was wide awake for about an hour wondering why I couldn't go back to sleep.

Good morning!

The morning was cool enough but probably not cool enough to offset another day of almost 90 for a high. How did this happen? No relief until Thursday according to the newspaper forecast.

I wouldn't have the foggiest idea how many CDs or DVDs I have. I have three rooms filled with DVDs. I have CDs stored in three different rooms, but I have far more DVDs than CDs.

As for how many unheard or unwatched, I probably have 25 CDs I haven't gotten around to listening to yet. I tend to get to them but slowly since I find I don't listen to music nearly as much as I used to.

I have hundreds of unwatched DVDs on my "to-watch" shelf (it's actualy a bookcase that holds them all). I'd like to think that someday I will get to them all, but who knows?

I do know that I buy them because I know that nothing stays in print forever, and if a movie or TV show comes out that I have any interest in watching (and thinking I'll want to rewatch it), then I'll buy it. I'm heartened by the fact that many movies I've always want to have have either come out already or are slated to come out within the next year or two, so I find that I have fewer purchases to make as the years pass.

I got up early enough this morning to get the newspaper read, the dining room cleaned, and I managed to watch an episode of MEDIUM and start another before I came upstairs to start my morning workout.

This was the episode wehre we see the teenaged Alison dreaming about her future self. Quite an interesting twist on the usual storyline, and I enjoyed it.

The critics I've read have said that tonight's CHUCK is the best-yet episode, so I'm encouraged that the show is finally going into "spy" country with Chuck bumbling his way through like a nedry Maxwell Smart. It should be a lot of fun.

Of course, I'll also be watching HEROES and JOURNEYMAN and recording HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER and CSI: MIAMI.

DR MBarnum, the days of plug and play TVs are really gone forever due to the many different sources that folks feed into today's television. Analog and digital signals look very different on new high def sets. DVDs and their high definition counterparts can look wonderful if the DVDs come from quality sourcces and have been mastered properly. On the other hand, just ebcasue it's on DVD does not mean it's going to look great.

The TVs today are so precise that they accentuate the flaws that old analog TVs used to hide with their lower resolution and lack of accurate tuning.

Another note to you, DR MBarnum:

Be careful about buying HDMI cables at a store like Best Buy. They'll want to charge you $60-90 for an HDMI cable.

Go to Wal-Mart or Target and get one there for a much more reasonable price - $10-20. You can buy them over the internet for less than $10. I've never had a problem with the internet HDMI cables that I've bought.

And you DO want HDMI if you can get it for all of your equipment (some older DVD players don't have those connections). HDMI is a pure digital connection, so it's going to give you the purest signal from a digital source. Even componet cables (the red-blue-green ones that give excelent quality) are analog cables which require the TV to do an analog-to-digital conversion before the image can be viewed.

And HDMI also carries audio signals as well as video, so if you aren't plugging into a receiver, the HDMI will give you both picture and sound over one cable. (Of course, you have to go into the setup menu on your cable box and tell it you're sending audio via HDMI).
