It's getting so I need to take a Dramamine before I look at any news of the economy. 

I take it platitudes like "It's always darkest before the dawn" don't help.

Ask BK

Shows like the CSI series use extensive clips of The Who's material as theme music (credited). In normal practice, would they have received a lump-sum payment for use, or do they have a residual piece of the action for each broadcast and DVD sale?

der Brucer

I remember a show (I forget which) that a co-worker of mine used to tape every episode (on videotape), and when the DVD seasons came out, one particular episode was missing!  It wasn't in the set, but she had it on videotape.  It turns out that a song by Sting was used throughout the episode, and (if I remember correctly) is even referenced in the script, so it was a major plot point.  HOWEVER, when the DVDs were being prepared for release, they couldn't get the DVD rights to the song.  They, of course, wanted to release the season, so they just left off that one episode.

DH Jed was quite annoyed when he bought the DVD set of Quantum Leap, only to discover that they didn't want to shell out the $$ for a lot of the song rights, so unless one of the characters like Scott Bakula was actually singing the song, or it was referenced in the script, it was replaced with elevator music.  Lame. 

Yup.  The same thing happened with the original Broadway soundtrack (yes...soundtrack) to the "musical" Contact.  They couldn't get the rights to the song, "You're Nobody Till Somebody Loves You," so they had Boyd Gaines (the star of the show) sing it for the recording...so this wasn't a bad thing. ;)

Our library isn't convenient for me, and parking can be difficult.  I went a number of times when we first moved here, when dogs were still permitted.  After Echo was no long welcome I stopped going.  I've decided I should use the library & was curious if I could go on line to hold books.  Seems I should be able to once I log in.  I can't log in without a password & I can't find a place to give it one.  The phone number for the library has bee busy for a long time.

In our library, you set up your account and password with your phone number and library card number, then you can browse, search and add holds from home.  You can also have your account set up so that you are mailed all your items and you can mail them back.  We'll pay the postage to send the items to you, but you'd have to pay the postage to send them back, or you can return them to any branch and not pay postage...just gas to get yourself to the library.

If I'm to believe my on-line TV Guide, the local Fox Network stations will pre-empt the Debates with baseball (the NLCS game). (Since we are in the Philly viewing area, that might stop mob-riots).

Thank goodness, it would be a shame if Craig missed watching his Phillies win the playoffs tonight.

That is a beautiful library.  While not as beautiful, there were two libraries in Michigan I enjoyed very much.  One I passed almost every day, with a nice parking lot, making it very easy to use on a regular basis.

After years of living in the LA area and routing for Dodgers, I guess I should now be switching allegiences (or not go out in public).

Two mysteries solved at once.  The library was busy as the number on the card was not the current phone number for the library.  I couldn't use my library card number on line as my card was canceled due to lack of use.  I wish they had warned me it would be canceled.  It would have gotten me into use the library.

Dogs are still not allowed & there isn't a drive through pick up.  At least there is a drive up drop off.

I was surprised to find myself routing for the Phillies since I love the Dodgers.  It is Craig's influence.  I will definitely be routing for whichever team goes to the World series, be it the Phillie's or Dodger's.

No, you can set up your log-in from home, but they use the phone number that you put on your application as the password, and then you can change it, if you want.

The new Vernetta Smith Chehalis Timberland Library should will be opening this weekend.  It's supposed to have Washington State's very first library drive-through window!

And, they emphasize this..."The $3.2 million project is being funded primarily by private donations."
