THE KINDNESS OF STRANGERS
« on: March 10, 2009, 12:07:27 AM »

Well, you've read the notes, the notes were both kind and strange, and now it is time for you to post until the cows come home - they're being kind to strangers who look like cows.

Time Warner is doing work - at MIDNIGHT to six in the morning - so it just took me twenty minutes to close the other topic and post the word of the day.  Sickening.  But they've credited me 1.53.

About a half hour ago, I was watching TV and noticed that Comcast had sent out a message (usually advertising some wrestling or boxing pay-per-view "event"), but this time it was saying something about a new channel becoming full time HD.  Anyway, I went to check out the channel and came across "Valmont" with Colin Firth, Annette Benning and Meg Tilly (it's another version of "Dangerous Liaisons") on another channel.  I noticed that the next movie after "Valmont" was "The Night They Raided Minsky's."  Since I'd never seen this movie (and there's the new musical about Minsky heading to Broadway), I set my DVR to record it (even though it's pan and scan).  I decided to check other shows on this channel and guess what...at 8:40 am, they're showing "The Winslow Boy," a 1999 movie version of one of the two possible plays that BK was told to read by the radio DJ.  What a coinkydink!  I set my DVR to record that also. ;D

Just had to share. :)

Thanks for the link JR. I just downloaded the song. It took about 10 minutes, even on DSL but I had no glitches.

Good morning, all! The alarm went off around 5 am, and I'm bathed and ready to see the doctor. I figure around 6:45 I'll look for a taxi to East 95th Street and get this shebang going. Mr Skip Kennon, talented composer and chef par excellence will pick me up around 9 am, and I should be home by 9:30 or 10 at the latest. I'm thinking about taking a peanut butter sandwich with me so as soon as I'm out of my coma I can eat something. I am starving!

Our household is stirring a bit early (for us) in anticipation of Skip meeting Larry a bit later.

Tuesday morning greetings!  I'm going to Cincinnati today to visit a long-time friend who recently bought a house in the Price Hill area.

Mega vibes for DR Elmore and thanks to Skip for seeing him home after the procedure!

Also thanks to DR JRand for the "I Think She Needs Me" song.  It did skip, but I just had to slam my hand against the PC a couple of times to get it to stop.

I also checked my copy of ILYA DARLING and it is identical to DR JRand's.  What surprised me was the stark cover art--I remembered it as being something more busy with a sketch of a Greek shoreline in the background behind Melina.  The memory does play tricks, don't it?

Sounds like Jane Fonda got rave reviews for 33 VARIATIONS, even if the play did not.  I really would like to get up there to see it.  I admit it's a shallow reason to go see a play, but it is a thrill to see a REAL movie star on stage.

I would like to push us off to page two, but my material is skimpy this morning.  But I'll give it a go...

I watched LURED on TCM last night and I have to say that I really enjoyed Ms. Ball's performance in this.  She seemed very self confident as an actress and now I want to check out more of her work during this period right before she started doing I LOVE LUCY.

Leopard spots would clash with my skin tone.
