When you do that all-white production of "Porgy and Bess", BK, I will be in the opening night audience.

"Pushing Daisies," Angela, is about a young man who owns a pie shop.  He has a certain "other" talent, too.  If he touches dead people, they come back to life.  If he touches them again, they become dead again.  If he doesn't touch them for one week, someone/something else dies in their place.  This is true of people or animals.  Kristen Chenoweth is his employee, Olive, in the pie shop.  She's "got it bad" for her boss, but he doesn't see her as anyone romantic.

Tonight, Kristen sang "Hopelessly Devoted" from "Grease."  Every girl who was in that NBC show earlier this year -- the one that cast the current version of "Grease" on Broadway -- is  a "rank" amateur by comparison.   Man can she belt a tune!

She did the number while she was "closing up" at her boss' request.  There was a guy in the scene who was polishing the floor, but he was wearing earphones to go with his iPod.  Her movements were choreographed to go with his, although both their backs were to each other.  It put a smile on my face.  And it ended much too quickly.

Why am I up?

It's a still night.  And it's a bit "close."  I got up to turn on a floor fan.  

And to take some aspiring.  So, while I'm processing the aspirin, I'm online.

I'm very much looking forward to tonight's "Ugly Betty", "Smallville," "Grey's Anatomy" and "Supernatura" (most of which I wont' watch, I'm guessing, until Saturday.  I'm certain I'll DVR the latter three.  I always watch "Ugly Betty" as it airs.

I've also got to tackle "The Lodger" sometime this weekend.  Possibly I'll even watch "The Undying Monster."

By the by....if any of you out there is a fan of "A Matter of Life and Death"  (aka "Stairway to Heaven"), TCM is airing it later this month.  It's either Oct. 22nd or 24th.  I've already set my DVR to pick it up, so I don't know the actual date off the top of my head.

If you don't know it, you OWE IT TO YOURSELF to see it.  It's one of cinema's great serious fantasies, and it stars David Niven and Kim Hunter.

In a nutshell (from the IMDb):

Returning to England from a bombing run in May 1945, flyer Peter Carter's plane is damaged and his parachute ripped to shreds. He has his crew bail out safely, but figures it is curtains for himself. He gets on the radio, and talks to June, a young American woman working for the RAF, and they are quite moved by each other's voices. Then he jumps, preferring this to burning up with his plane. He wakes up in the surf. It was his time to die, but there was a mixup in heaven. They couldn't find him in all that fog. By the time his "Conductor" catches up with him 20 hours later, Peter and June have met and fallen in love. This changes everything, and since it happened through no fault of his own, Peter figures that heaven owes him a second chance. Heaven agrees to a trial to decide his fate.

It is a 1946 Michael Powell-Emeric Pressburger film.

It's not currently available on a quality DVD, and infrequent airings on TV are the only other source for it of which I know. (this last sentence edited to clarify availability)

I have not played board games for quite a few years.  I always found "Cluedo" a lot of fun.  (especially when the players had had a few drinks! "Professor Pipe in the Green room with a plum").  That's "Clue" in the USA I think. It was also a great game to use as a teaching aid for deductive reasoning.

I found board games quite a useful device in teaching - games based on stock markets and basic economic theory were way more useful than textbooks in some cases.  The devising of games by students was also an interesting exercise.  (I guess these days that they would be devising Computer Games instead).

"Pusing Daisies," Angela, is about a young man who owns a pie shop.  He has a certain "other" talent, too.  If he touches dead people, they come back t life.  If he touches them again, they become dead again.  If he doesn't touch them for one week, someone/something else dies in their place.  This is true of people or animals....

I enjoy this show, too...although I haven't watched the latest episode.  But, if I remember correctly, he has only one minute to re-touch the people to make them dead again, not a week, before some random person in close proximity dies instead.  That's a very unusual, and specific, requirement.

Flirtatious Michelle loved to be pawky with all the guys, but since she was married she had to do it on the sly.

Thunderations, we're having a bit of storm here in Rehoboth.  A downpour of rain, and a rattling of thunder.  Poor Bonnie has been hiding at my feet - we used to think it was just Marty who was scared of the thunder, but now that he's gone, she's the one who gets worried.  

Der Brucer will be so thrilled when I get him to drive me to work in a little bit.

BK, Timothy Brock's score to "Sunrise" is available on CD.  It was recorded by the Olympia (WA) Chamber Orchestra when Tim was the conductor!  I'd met him several times when he used to live here in Olympia.  He wrote and recorded several new scores for silent movies that have since been released on DVD. :)
