Picked up mom and met my sister Sue at IHOP's for dinner.

It was fund.

I am now home and the house is quite chilly, so I think I will crawl into bed with Bosco and Freddy and go to sleep.

Next, I checked back in with PUSHING DAISIES. And it will be for the last time. I really love Lee Pace and Kristin Chenoweth, but the show, despite being a mystery, just does not engage me. Besides, when BONES comes back after its baseball hiatus, that will get my full attention.

At least with BONES, when they're dead, they stay dead!

My dad had to go to the hospital today. He has/had an obstruction in his bowel of some sort and after going through procedures similar to those Callie went through, he is now home and has to drink two bottles of the stuff you drink before a colonoscopy.  He said it isn't doing any good yet...they think it's the powder stuff they gave him after he got his gall bladder out that's just been working too well.  He and mom seem pretty optimistic about it, but I am concerned.  Vibes would be appreciated.

Well, I've got a lot of TV watching to do, so sadly, I must Wussburger and say good night, now.

Good night, now!

I have been catching up on SUPERNATURAL SEASON THREE, and today, before work, I caught the episode, "A Very Supernatural Christmas."  A truly unique episode and now one of my favorites. 

The entire season three was really fantastic on this show. The Blu-rays are coming out next month for Season Three, but the cost is well above what I'd spend ($55). I'll wait for a sale one day. I have the first two seasons on regular DVD, both bouoght on sale for less than $15 each.

You ain't just whistling "Dixie!"  This season is super!  I simply can't wait for my evenings after work and my afternoons between shifts to catch up with those Winchester boys!  The distaff additions to the cast have proven to be verrry interrresting. . .

Inspired by earlier postings, I was a little hungry, but I wanted 0 calories and fat grams - so I went to Gelson's and bought a tomato and a cucumber, got home, cut them up, doused with vinegar (which I believe has 0 of everything), added a little salt and pepper and ate it all up and boy was it great and it hit the spot just perfectly AND it's actually filling - I don't think there's any real calories in a tomato and a cucumber.

Tomorrow I hope to get a lot of work done.

I spent today going back and forth between the Lexis rep who is doing a real hard sell on online research and I don't like it, and the Westlaw rep who is doing a soft sell but may be getting farther with me. The Westlaw database is better for what i'm doing now, but I don't think i'll be saving money which was the goal, lol.

I told them both I wasn't going to buy anything today I have to sit down and compare.  I don't think my contract with lexis is up until December 31, but I've gotten Westlaw to agree to giving me 2 months free.  They are both trying like crazy to make a sale before the end of the month.  Times must be tough in the online legal research biz

Dakota - we've asked to keep the political stuff to a minimum - you weren't around for the brouhaha, so all I ask is to hold off until after the election.
Laura gave me a heads up and i removed them :)

Excellent review for Scent Of Mystery from Film Score Monthly:

Scent of Mystery (1960) *** 1/2
 
MARIO NASCIMBENE/JORDAN RAMIN
Kritzerland KR 20011-7
14 tracks - 35:39


Bruce Kimmel’s label has released this much sought-after ’60s oddity featuring music mostly by Mario Nascimbene, with additional material by Jordan Ramin. The album also boasts two songs with lyrics by Harold Adamson, sung by Eddie Fisher. Scent of Mystery was unique for its time, as it was the first film to be shown (at least in New York) in glorious Smell-o-vision. On that note, the CD booklet even allows you to have an aromatic experience while reading the notes.

Nascimbene scores the strange little comic mystery with a heavy helping of jazz, including a prominent Gershwin-esque clarinet solo early on. Meanwhile, carefully detailed orchestral writing emphasizes the film’s comedy aspects; there is even a bit of Ravelian scoring for piccolo, flute and bassoon in a medley that accompanies a street stroll. It’s all deliciously wonderful, capturing the joie de vivre of the film’s light-hearted approach with colorful orchestrations that also hint at the locale. A few well-placed car horns (especially for “The Chase”) make for humorous additional color.

Scent of Mystery was the single release from Ramrod Records and originally featured a mono pressing (a few made it out in stereo). For this CD release, Kritzerland presents the score in perfect stereo. This unexpected pleasure is easily recommended for fans of jazz scores of the ’60s, and is worth tracking down in this limited (1,000) edition available from the label’s website: www.kritzerland.com. You can go there to hear some clips as well, just in case you need more encouragement. —Steven A. Kennedy
