Tonight will be my last attempt to like PUSHING DAISIES. The aunts are back (Ellen Greene, Swoosie Kurtz) which should help. We'll see.

A last viewing of PRIVATE PRACTICE, too, unless it's better. I will say I found last week's show the best of the three that have aired, and if the characters would just be given some depth and maturity, I'd like the show a lot more.

I did have some time last night to put in the Ultra-Resolution version of SINGIN' IN THE RAIN to see what it would look like on the new TV. Looked wonderful, but I guess I need to skip to the "Broadway Ballet" to see the spectacular color.

The color in the dresses in the "Beautiful Girl" sequence did pop off the screen. The ballet should look spectacular.

As everybody seemed to say in Paris, chacun a son gout, Miss Karen.  

Emphasis on the gout right now, though - most likely gout anyway.  :)

Details emerge about the Indian dinner: the main dish is chicken in a yogurt-based sauce which has a bit of a kick to it, so it's kind of on the hot side.

I printed out everyone's suggestions...I am armed and ready!

(Alicia Wagner Calzada / For The Times)

A double-crested cormorant takes off from the Rio Grande. South Texans have spent millions to create a lucrative eco-tourism site, which draws more than 125,000 visitors every year.

A nature lover's paradise along the Rio Grande in South Texas serves as a prime habitat for drug and human smuggling.


Border fence threatens sanctuary

Quote
Wildlife at border may lose sanctuary
By Miguel Bustillo
...
The lush, meandering lower leg of the Rio Grande is one of the most biologically diverse places in North America. More than 300 varieties of butterflies and half the bird species in the United States can be spotted here. So can two endangered species of wild cats: the ocelot, which resembles a miniature leopard, and the jaguarundi, an otter-faced relative of the puma.

Over the last 30 years, ranchers, conservationists, and state and federal officials have strung together a delicate necklace of nature sanctuaries along the river's final 275 miles. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service alone has invested more than $100 million to buy land and restore it to its native state, creating a riverside corridor called the Lower Rio Grande Valley National Wildlife Refuge.

Now the new federal directive to build 21 fence segments here threatens to trample the lands the government and private groups spent decades nurturing. A Fish and Wildlife analysis found that up to 75% of the nature corridor could be harmed, for just 70 miles of fence.

"In this little area, you will find more species in four counties than in all but three entire states," said Martin Hagne, executive director of the Valley Nature Center in Weslaco, a vacant lot that was transformed into an educational park filled with malachite and pixie butterflies, Texas tortoises and cottontail rabbits.

"Now they're going to spend billions of dollars to undo the work that cost millions of dollars. These are your tax dollars at work," he said.

Over the last years, business leaders and city officials have spent millions turning South Texas into a lucrative eco-tourism attraction. More than 125,000 people visit the Rio Grande Valley every year to see fields of butterflies hovering above nectar plants and to watch flocks of birds descend on the river and the resacas, lakes formed when the serpentine stream shifts course.

The Rio Grande sits in some of the continent's biggest migratory bird corridors, and listers, or bird aficionados who aim to watch every species in the country, know that South Texas is the only place to scratch off the names of many birds native to Central America (seeing them south of the border doesn't count).

The visitors sustain 2,000 jobs and pump $125 million a year into the economy, according to the visitors bureau in McAllen.

Most unseemly, yes -- all this talk about pinging big members  :o Cover the children's eyes ....

I seem to remember the off-spring of some Irish Mum ogling some gold lamé swaddled big members - and in front of a paying audience. Oh the shame!

... and then will proceed with MEET THE ROBINSONS, Disney's latest attempt to do a computer animated movie without the Pixar label.

But you won't get to see it in 3D! You will hear some nice music (Danny Elfman, Rufus Wainwright, etc).

The Grandlads really enjoyed it!

Note: the viewing experience is enhanced by having a theatre filled with well-behaved, but enthusiastic youngsters.

Speaking for myself, none of them.

I guess orchestraters/arrangers get lumped in with Caterers, drivers, etc.

Can you say “precocious”?

Quote
The Orchestra of St. Luke's will perform the world premiere of 16-year-old Jay Greenberg's Violin Concerto with soloist Joshua Bell in its Carnegie Hall season opener on October 28th.

"How do you react when you encounter an early compositional gift so extraordinary that you can’t even begin to comprehend it?" Samuel Zyman wrote of the composer in The Juilliard Journal in 2003. "How do you explain to others a compositional talent so exquisitely developed at such an early age that you can barely believe it yourself? What would you do if you personally met an eight-year-old boy who can compose and fully notate half a movement of a magnificent piano sonata in the style of Beethoven, before your very eyes and without a piano, in less than an hour? How do you let the world know that the same boy, at age 10, composed a probing, original viola concerto in three movements, fully orchestrated, in just a few weeks?"

;D

Well, there were actual showtunes such as:

Try to Re-Member [The Fantastics]
I Re-Member It Well [Gigi]
I Re-Member [Evening Primrose]

And then there were all those showtunes that might have been:

The Impossible Member
It's a Real Nice Day for a Member
Member 10, Looks 3
Pretty Members
Every Day a Little Member
What I Did for Member
The Colors of my Member
etc., etc., etc.
