ACHY-BREAKY BK
« on: October 14, 2007, 12:00:31 AM »

Well, you've read the notes, the notes had a certain achy-breaky vibe to them, and now it is time for you to post until the achy-breaky cows come home.

Good Morning!

I'm up, I'm up... Well, I'm still up.

Hmm.. That sounds like an advertisement/warning for Viagra.

bk - As I learned with my last two bouts of acid reflux, it can cause you you to have chills, fever and body aches.   And since you're having trouble breathing in... Well... The "easy" test is to try and take a deep breath in, but only breath into your lungs - breathing in through your nose is the best way to do that.  Then take a nice breath in to your whole body (mouth open).  If you really start coughing after the really deep breath, well, you may have acid reflux.  In any case...

If you're still feeling sick tomorrow... See a doctor.

From THE NOTES:

Quote
I am beginning to have song juggling problems with singers, as everyone tends to want to do the same five songs. Since Mr. Menken and Mr. Schwartz have written so many great numbers, I’m hoping I can make people happy with other songs.

Interesting - with bk's reputation for having singers turn little-heard gems into show-stopping block busters, you'd think they'd be asking him to pick their songs!

OK.. Well, I'm off today/tomorrow, but there are few things theatrical I may try to catch - one of them being the York Musical in Mufti's presentation of The Body Beautiful.  -And I also must clean my room tomorrow.  So...

Goodnight.

Broadway in your living room

Now and again, television has classed itself up by showing stage musicals. The benefits flow both ways.

By Robert Lloyd, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer
October 13, 2007

ON the far side of the continent, on an island covered in concrete, there runs a street of dreams familiarly called the Great White Way. And the fact that we know this, even if we have not traveled east of the Colorado (or even of Colorado Boulevard), is due as much as anything to television. A medium whose own early years were spent -- to re-punctuate George M. Cohan -- "4.5 minutes from Broadway," it has, across the years, transmitted glimpses of what goes on there to the far world.

This weekend, the unlikely organ of this enlightenment is MTV, which will broadcast a complete performance of the hit musical "Legally Blonde," based on the movie of the same name and taped last month at the Palace Theatre in New York. The show at hand may not be "Oklahoma!" or even "Avenue Q," but it nevertheless continues a long and honorable (if too infrequently observed) tradition of bringing remote culture into the homes of those without the means to experience it firsthand.

...(go read the rest!)

For SingSong:




ALEX ROSS

Quote

...Java sparrows can discriminate between Bach’s French Suite no. 5 in G minor and Arnold Schoenberg’s Suite for Piano opus 25. The birds were also able to generalize new music by Bach (Orchestral Suite No. 3 in D major) and Schoenberg (Five Orchestra Pieces, Opus 16) and artists in similar categories, i.e., Vivaldi and Elliott Carter. In these experiments, music by Bach and Vivaldi was considered classical music, while the music of Schoenberg and Carter was considered modern music. Watanabe and Nemoto [Behav. Processes 43, 2 (1998)] have also shown that, given the option of three perches producing either silence, classical, or modern music, the Java sparrows preferred Bach to Schoenberg and Vivaldi to Carter. These results indicate that Java sparrows or songbirds prefer classical to modern music, or perhaps just more harmonious to dissonant sounds. Additionally, the sparrows chose music they 'liked' (e.g., Bach) over silence or music they 'disliked' (e.g., Schoenberg)." [/size]

New Hampshire Mulls December Primary

Friday, October 12, 2007 12:20 PM

New Hampshire primary voters could head to the polls as early as Dec. 11 in an unprecedented move to maintain the state’s first-in-the-nation status.
Jim Splaine, the state legislator responsible for the law mandating that New Hampshire vote first, is actively campaigning for a vote on that date, The Washington Post reports.

And IOWA, by law, must caucus at least 8 days earlier!

DR Sandra - Congratulations on your job offer!  I hope you have more.  It's always good to have options.

Belated Happy Birthday greetings to DH Keith's mother.

DR elmore3003 - thanks for the video clip link!  Ethel sure sounded swell.

***FEEL BETTER VIBES*** to bk

DR Cason - all the best wishes on your producing duties, and ***SUPPORT VIBES*** in your college application process.  I'm sure there's a few H/Ks that would be willing to write you a reference.  Well, maybe that's not such a good idea.   ;)

DR dB - thanks for the interesting news bits.  Especially interesting about the bird's musical tastes.  I wonder how they'd react to The Brain?  :)

WOD: 2008 will have a February 29th.

My used copy of the Amy's Breads cookbook arrived yesterday from Amazon Marketplace.

While it appears to be an excellent primer on bread baking, alas it does not seem to contain the proprietary recipe for Monkey Cake.  I imagine that one of the recipes posted some weeks ago by DRs would probably work pretty well.

Thanks to all for your good wishes for last evening.  The benefit cabaret went very well and I think they raised a good amount of money.

Our first show went just fine.  Then, in the second show we loosened up, camped it up a bit more, and just had a really fun time on stage.  And it went over like gangbusters.

Here we are, waiting to go on:


Oh, and Dame Edna also made an appearance.  No, that is not also me!


It was probably one of the few programs you'll see this year that contained both "The Queen of the Night" aria from Die Zauberflöte and "Staying Alive" by the Bee Gees.

Good morning, all! I'm off to Toyland and then back here fo some work on the David Burnham arrangement.

BK, you need a vacation.  Plain and simple, a vacation.  You've spent six weeks in Manhattan fighting with NYMF and you need a break. And a rest.  Get one before the constant stress kills you.  Take a trip to London, visit DR CharlesPogue in Kentucky, turn off the phone and do nothing for two days, but stop driving yourself so damned hard.

End of rant.  I think I'll head downtown.

My favorite joke about the New Hampshire primary is that they are so zealous about protecting their 1st in the nation status that they moved their primary to last week....And one of the Brit re-issue labels is releasing some of the recordings made by 12 year old Julie  Andrews, but the cd will also include the title song to the boyfriend  and "Once upon a long ago" from HIGH TOR; I've got a slightly scratchy(like BKs throat)copy of the old Decca LP and that song is the best thing on it, an absolutely gorgeous ballad.

Love him and love the show. Justin's attempts to play basketball last week were hilarious. I was a lousy basketball player, but compared to Justin, I was close to NBA levels when I was a kid.

I adored seeing Daniel take an interest in him since (other than Papi) there's no male presence in Justin's life, but I hope the writers aren't going to instigate a "butch-up Justin" motif this season. He's fine just as he is.

A very cool morning, but we're getting into the high 70s the next two days. Should still be cool enough to keep the cool inside and heat outside. I just love autumn.

I had some time this morning after reading the newspaper, so I watched another NCIS episode. This was the one featuring the automatic car. What an easy mystery to solve! The writers on this show are definitely not interested in setting up baffling puzzles.

Video quality continues to be frustratingly poor. After several episodes in a row, I start to wonder if my equipment is going bad. Then, I pop in a disc I know has a good transfer, and then I can see that Paramount has just made a mediocre product.

I'll look forward to seeing LAW & ORDER: CI which (thanks to DR der Brucer) I recorded last night at 11.

I noticed in the weekly TV section of the newspaper today that NBC is going to show L&O:CI on Saturday night (it didn't say which episode). If this is going to become a weekly thing of their broadcasting USA's episodes a week or two later, I'll wait and watch/record the NBC versions since they'll be in HD and the USA versions aren't.

Assuming all goes according to plan, I'll be seeing Ahrens and Flaherty's THE GLORIOUS ONES this afternoon.  I saw it and loved it in Pittsburgh in April, and I'm very much looking forward to seeing it again.  (Dear friend Ronni, who runs the Ahrens & Flaherty official website, is celebrating her birthday today, so a group is going to the show.  I'll be missing the birthday brunch, though, for reasons to do with my hurting left foot.)

Just saw Friday night's ratings:

WOMEN'S MURDER CLUB won the night in total viewers and was the highest rated in ages 18-49. MOONLIGHT finished second in the time period and FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS finished slightly above SMACKDOWN. (The baseball playoffs were third).

An auspicious beginning for the show. I'll be eager to see how it fares next week.

Heading down now to watch L&O:CI and then start cooking lunch.

Also have laundry to do mid afternoon and the master bath to clean tonight.

A very busy day.
