I began by watching INDIANA JONES AND THE TEMPLE OF DOOM. Aside from the gross-out sequences with food and bugs, the most irritating thing by far in the movie is Kate Capshaw's character. I know Steven was in love with the actress and found her funny, but I find her so totally annoying and insufferable even after all these years of watching this movie that I just can't stand anything she does in the movie. I didn't remember, however, that for a few moments, "Anything Goes" gets all surreal as if Spielberg was copying Ken Russell's numbers in THE BOY FRIEND. That was weird, too.

I went ahead since I had some extra time and watching the bonus features on INDIANA JONES AND THE LAST CRUSADE.

Again, the bonuses are only fair. There is a panel discussion between the leading ladies of the three Indy features conducted at the AFI. Karen Allen is the most enthusiastic about her character. Capshaw and Alison Doody didn't much like the ladies they played. Capshaw realized she was more annoying than entertaining, and Doody kept saying that Sean Connery had the second lead which normally would have gone to the girl, so she felt her participation was reduced as a result. She kept saying over and over, "Connery had my role."

Oh, no. The whole point was a father and son story, working through their lack of communication and years of mistrust. She was a catalyst toward helping them achieve that, but she wasn't SUPPOSED to be the second lead.

The rest of the features, produced by bk favorite Laurent Bouzereau, followed the same pattern on the other discs: introduction to the movie by Lucas and Spielberg, a storyboarded sequence, four step-through galleries of stills and conceptual art, and a featurette on the friends and enemies of Indy through all three films.

While waiting for my 10 p.m. to come on, I watched a special on Howard Hughes on the NAtional Geographic HD channel. Such a sad, strange man, despite his billions.

Oh, I flipped over right when they announced who was going home on AMERICAN IDOL, so I didn't play back tonight's one hour show. I will likely skim through it tomorrow while waiting for my ride to come pick me up for lunch.

Well... I am tired and sleepy, and flying out in the morning, so...

Goodnight.

I've got some writing to do, and then I'm heading down to bed as well.

Good night!

We have tonight off - theater maintenance they call it - a bit odd to have a night off between final dress and first preview, but that's the way they do things.

What is her name?  I wonder if she is my twin I have been hearing about all my life ;)

Actually it's the Bob and Sheri show, but when I looked on the net she doesn't resemble you in the slightest.  It's just the photo with your hair, about your build and sunglasses that reminds me of you

Since it is Ask BK Day... And since I'm drawing an almost total blank right now...

I need a Women's Ensemble number from a Broadway show.  Right now, all I can think of is "Jeannie's Packing Up" from Brigadoon.  I have duets and trios, but I need a group number.

Anyone?  Anything else?

"A Hard Candy Christmas" from Best Little Whorehouse in Texas

Well, I'm pretty much packed. I'm flying from Sioux City and my flight doesn't leave until 10:53 AM (Northwest Airlines) then I go to Minneapolis where my friend Pam will be getting on the same flight to LaGuardia.  We get there shortly before 5:00 PM

Go first - then you can put a luxury spin on "Feed The Birds".
