Oh, Deere!!!

Hmmmmmmmmm.....well even the comments here at HHW did not prepare me for the disastrous and ridiculous turn CAMELOT takes with Mordred's appearance - if I didn't know better, I would think Libby Appel had her fine hand in this someplace.

I am not sure the show will recover for me.

DR JMK - the music machine IS amazing, but alas, the story is too good to be true.  I own the DVD's that this clip comes from.  There are two DVD's with about 10 or 12 segments between them.  The segments are computer animated.  Each segment is unique, and more astonishing than the one before, but they are animations.  That doesn't take away from the wonder of the conception and execution, though!  :)

Yes, DR Elmore, but we had to see it to believe it.  And I didn't even stick around long enough for Mordred.

'night!

Yes, DR ELMORE....yes.....you did....but the delights you described made it worth watching....

If you like CAMELOT - even if you love it - you will enjoy this one, for the most part.

Nathan Gunn makes the role of Lancelot his own....and there is that glorious score!

Of course, now I want to do CAMELOT again - or see it someplace.  Last time through Indy, Robert Goulet played Arthur and his son was one of the knights.

I saw that one, too.

That was when I didn't meet DR Kerry. (That will make sense to him.)

DR Jose, if you are doing cemeteries -- Marilyn Monroe (another favorite of DR Megan) is at Westwood.

Evelyn Nesbit, Lawrence Welk, and Bing Crosby (a favorite of DR Megan) are at Holy Cross in Culver City as well.

As is Ms. Susan Cabot, star of THE WASP WOMAN.

What a wacky night of viewing I've had tonight.

It began OK with my watching last night's CSI: NY. A fair mystery of a poisoning though I figured it out fairly early. I certainly saw something the CSI and the detective at the game didn't even think to check out until LATE in the show.

Yes, the taxi cab killer is still at large.

Next, I watched the 1921 CAMILLE with Nazimova and Rudolph Valentino. He wipes the screen with her with such a dignified, restrained performance. She's all rolling eyes and attitude. Ugh!

And in case anyone thinks that soft focus filters were born with Doris Day, Nazimova used them in both her medium shots AND her close-ups. The audience of the time must have thought their eyesight was going bad with all the focus pulling.

I was enjoying UGLY BETTY until about 25 minutes in, the local ABC affiliate interrupted the broadcast with tornado warnings for counties above us. They stayed on for the remainder of BETTY and all of GREY'S ANATOMY. Supposedly, GREy'S is being shown at 1:02 a.m. I have the DVR set to record it.

I noticed that the NBC affiliate also stayed on until 9 so EARL will be a wash. The CW ran a crawl across the bottom and aired their scheduled shows, so at least I'll get to see SMALLVILLE. During a commercial, I checked and saw that I had forgotten to record SUPERNATURAL. Oh, well, I'll have to read the on-line summaries and wait for a rerun.

So, I flipped over and watched CAMELOT for about 1 1/2 hours. I did not think much of it. When you have an Arthur who isn't remotely musical, it's going to be a long evening. Marin had a rough first act dropping lyrics in both "May" and "Fair." I wasn't swept away by Lancelot either. Sorry.

I did love the knights. I wish they had more to do. Mordred was ridiculous, but at least he got to sing "Seven Deadly Virtues." The last time I saw CAMELOT on stage, they had dropped that song (along with "Fie on Goodness" and "Before I Gaze at You Again.")

LOST was a wonderful episode with some key backstory on a major character. More conundrums as the season gets closer to the end.

I will have a messy DVR tomorrow to sort out to find shows among all the interruptions and junk. Who knows what I'll end up actually seeing.

Good Evening!

I'm back from dinner.  My friend, Lynn, and I ended up dining down the street at Fred 62.  She had Spaghetti and Meatballs (which was abbreviated as "Spag N Balls" on the bill), and I had their "Hunka Hunka Burnin' Love Pancake".  From the menu description, I was expecting something quite decadent and large, however, it turned out to be one large plate-sized pancake with bananas, chocolate chips and dabs of peanut butter. :)  -It was my appetizer, entree and dessert all rolled into one!  (And portion-size-wise, it was just right.)

She's heading out of town tomorrow to visit some family, but we may get together again next week.  We worked on a production of The Human Comedy a couple of years ago, and it was just one of those times where everyone bonded.  It turns out that some other cast members are also in L.A. now, so we're going to see if we can arrange a sort of mini-reunion.  :)

Is Angels Flight still running?

It's currently undergoing a renovation/refurbishment.  It's scheduled to reopen this summer.

*However, the huge fountain right there at California Plaza is quite spectacular.

Was it a thin, runny sauce?

I'm not sure I would describe it as runny, but it's also not ketchup-thick.  Here's what it looks/looked like:
