Good morning, all! When all this nonsense is over, I need to see my doctor for an IV or something to remove all the toxins and poisons from the crap I've been using to exterminate the vermin. Oy!  I've been Steri-Fabbing myself into a stupor.

Well, I did laugh at MEET THE SPARTANS but it's a pretty dreadful movie by the makers of DATE MOVIE, a film that I'd forgotten was god-awful until I saw it again last November in Ohio.  SPARTANS has several dance numbers, and I suppose if it were translated into Hindu, DR MBarnum would consider it an art film since it combines undressed men, sword & sandal and Bollywood elements.  The cast was game, but it was really pathetic. It was strange for a comedy that it ends with all the Spartans dying, and at the end of the credit there were about 15 minutes of out-takes.

I would swear that I've seen several of the Spartans on my VCR, and that leads to today's TOD:

A nice enough recording.  The staging was a bit too "one-set"-ish -- the Loveland sequences didn't have nearly enough of the glamour they should have had.

(Of course, since der B and I had just come from the matinee of Pacific Overtures at the BNO, anything that followed was bound to pale in comparison.)

Certainly not my favorite rendition of the score, but I hadn't listened to it in years and thought I'd give it a spin. None of the new songs are patches on the ones they replaced or fit especially well, but I never saw this incarnation, and I understand script changes made it very different from the Broadway version which I did see (and love).

On the positive side, my new bed frame has shipped.

Several of my third floor neighbors, led by the demented Jaymie, are causing trouble: Steve, who had cartons of books in the hall for many months, started showing signs of anxiety about the Miami University cartons yesterday. He's also no longer taking the elevator, I notice, since Jaymie threw her fit earlier in the week about its being infested with bedbugs from my piano. To add insult to the injury and libel, the moron's information came from the drama queen Judy who's never seen a bed bug but swore they were all over the elevator when the piano was removed.  I saw no sign of vermin at all when I vacuumed the damed elevator and sprayed it with pesticide immediately after the piano was removed, I can only think I've got three neurotic  asses on a witch hunt.

I had a LOST marathon last night (no spoilers).

First i watched the 2 hour finale from last season again (with the explanation blurbs at the bottom).

Then i watched the recap show.

I must say of all 3 events (finale, recap, new show) i liked the recap show the least.

I think it would have been better if i had not just watched the finale from the previous season. Because a lot of it was the same. Plus it was so fresh in my mind.

Then i watched the premiere a bit later.

My mind is still trying to grasp everything that happened. I loved it!

Here is the recap:

I am very excited to watch the Superbowl this Sunday.

And also to see the ads (which is actually quite a feat here since everything but certain satellites only gives the canadian commercials).

Curious what you other Lost-ophiles thought about last night's episode.  It didn't immediately "wow" me, but there were certainly some interesting new threads that may weave into something exciting.

Also, was I imagining things, or was Harold Perrineau listed in the credits?  I sure didn't see him--did anyone else?

None of the new songs are patches on the ones they replaced or fit especially well, but I never saw this incarnation, and I understand script changes made it very different from the Broadway version which I did see (and love).
Those script changes were radical - the older Ben/Buddy/Sally/Phyllis had actual conversations with their younger selves.  And so on.  No wonder Sondheim and company have put the kabosh on it being repeated.

Here's something that's occurred to me: why is it I never see pictures of the original Broadway production in color anywhere?  I've seen lots of black and white photos, and I know color pics were taken because I remember seeing them in Time magazine back when I was in college (he unafraidedly dates himself).  So, where are the color pics?

The makings for the chicken stock is in the oven.

I've split the makings into two pots, which will be easier to handle later and gives me a total of six quarts water to three pounds chicken wings.  They are sitting in a nice warm 200 degree oven, using the lower oven because it will be easier for me to reach in and skim any skum off the top of the pots.

And so far I haven't been asked to come in to work.
