Page Two Dance!



The wet sand monster waited patiently underneath the clammy, damp surface, and sure enough, this pretty lady came dancing by and stuck her toe right in his mouth.  All he had to do was slurp her down like so much spaghetti.  Yummers!

Of course, the fabric she was wearing wasn't quite so tasty, so he spat it back out again, evidence that something had happened on the beach, but exactly what no one ever knew.

Yes, but you were wearing what at the time?

Just a bit of fabric that he'd found there on the beach.  It was a little ratty, like something had been chewing on it...

Last night's DWTS was interesting. Although i did not realize the 2 replacements were supposed to be surprises.

I'm not sure who my favorite is. But i was very impressed with the guy from the Sex & The City movie. He was very good. Although cheryl is not my fav.

I was also very impressed with Steve W. Wow. I think because he can be so smart he memorizes the steps very well. He was much better than i thought he would be.

Melissa was very good. I think she will be a standout for sure. I liked steve o and lacey. And chuck and julianne. Should be interesting! I was quite disappointed in the first 3!

I'm back! It all went very quickly and I was ready to go home by 8:30. I liked Dr Finkelstein and his crew very much. I then ate my peanut butter sandwich and waited for my escort home. My dear friend Skip arrived about 9, got be safely back here, and I've sent him on his way with the Christmas gift I've been holding for him and DR FJL.

I think it's time for a bit of food.

Good morning!

Beautiful morning but cooler than the last couple of mornings. It got up to 83 here yesterday. Only supposed to be in the low 70s today. That's really more like it.

As I mentioned last night, my work project today is the CEntennial Collection edition of TO CATCH A THIEF. I'm not quite sure why Paramount is mastering these releases in high definition but only releasing them (for now) in standard DVD. WHy they don't take a chance and release one, say, SUNSET BOULEVARD on Blu-ray, I'm not quite sure.

At any rate, I'm looking forward to spending the afternoon with Cary, Grace, and Mr. Hitchcock. (Dr. Drew Casper will also be along for the ride!)

Dear Readers, this Luddite has entered the blogosphere.  POGUE'S PAGES is up and running with  the first part of a 3-part blog about The Lovely Wife's and my theatre trip to London.  I'll probably be posting a couple of times a week, so when you're not playing here, please drop by occasionally.  http://poguespages.blogspot.com

I remember when I began producing theater music on CD in 1993 - there was virtually almost nothing coming out from anyone - not from the majors, not from the minors, and almost nothing from singers themselves.  Within two years, after seeing what we were doing and watching our sales, virtually everyone, majors and minors, were back into it and, as they always do, not only back into it but trying to BEAT everyone in terms of volume.  And then every singer got into it, doing their own releases or releases through smaller labels.  It was really interesting to watch.  And then after we created a really interesting business model with my former label, and that model was really successful, two labels sprouted up using the exact same model.  And the more the merrier say I.

Almost time to shower and be on my way.  It's hard to know how much time to allow - don't want to be late, need to park, and traffic could be awful or could be light.

When I was in 8th or 9th grade I wrote to Albert Glasser, film composer for ATTACK OF THE PUPPET PEOPLE and so many other B films of the 40s, 50s, and 60s. I told him how much I loved his music and he kindly gifted me with recordings of several of his scores....I was in heaven. We kept up a correspondence for a few years after. What a great guy.

A few years ago I bumped into a lady who just happened to be Albert Glasser's niece. It turns out she has his recordings now that he has passed on. I was hoping that BK could do something with them, but alas it was not to be due to some rights issues, evidently........although, BK, if you were to check into his earlier film scores for PRC and Monogram films ( I think MONSTER MAKER was one of his)...well, most of that stuff is in public domain now.

Great quote from the bottom of Pogue's Pages!
