Has anyone read or seen DEFIANCE?  I finished reading it last night.  I found it very interesting. 

The author did her research & interviewed a surprising number of people as I didnít expect them to still be alive.  There are 96 pages of notes.  Amongst those notes I found a reference to a book called DIARY OF A VILNA GHETTO written by a 13 year old boy.  If I can find a copy I plan to read this, he seems to have been very special.  To read a little about the Vilna & the author  Click Here

Of course today is a work day.  Yesterday after I emailed FACEBOOK about NOT being able to find my Groups link on my home page (you have to click Applications at the bottom of the screen, I figured out) - I got a email response thanking me for my feedback and telling me that because they get SO MANY emails, they can't respond to them, but they DO read them.

I sent them something to read!

They sound out the words phonetically.

DR Sam, Autumn is beautiful.  Having grown up in Southern California I had no idea.  The first time I saw Autumn I had tears in my eyes.  I never want to live where the leaves donít change.  I miss the colors on the east coast.  In Ashland there tend to be more yellows than reds, still it is gorgeous.

I graduated from Hamilton with my DH Keith & DR Penny O.  The day after I met them in 10th grade drama class, we all met Bruce who was a year and a half ahead of us. 

Bruce you should have only been a year ahead of us, how did that happen?

Good Evening!

-And I still think the dance break to "I Wanna Be A Producer" is one of my least favorite dance breaks to play.  I don't mind listening to it, but playing.. Meh!

bk - Yes, as DR td pointed out, if you set it up as Event, it can go to everyone on your list - and then also be "expanded" to include other people who are not immediate FB Friends, but may also be in your "Los Angeles" network.

I've been sending out Facebook messages which, to my dismay, you can only do twenty at a time.  I made a list of all the LA Facebook friends - 209 people and tried to do a mass message - twenty at a time, which means I totally wasted my time making the list.  It's really annoying.  I've done about 120 of the names now, in batches of twenty, but it's a real pain in the ASS, I must say.  Also, I tried to type "groups" in the search box, thinking it would, as Jose said, give me directions on starting a Kritzerland Fan Group - it didn't.  If anyone can help me through that, let me know.

Can't you also just use that email, e-blast service you were using?

...However, if I had bought them in NYC with the discount and gift card, then they would have come in just under $5.00 since there's no tax on clothing in NYC....

Is THAT how the girls on Sex & the City managed to afford all those shoes!!!

I wonder which cinematic masterpiece(s) DR Ron Pulliam has immersed himself in this weekend?  I guess - and hope - we shall find out tomorrow.

Tonight I watch a film called Boy Culture that I believe was released about 2 years ago. The cast of mainly unknowns (to me) were excellent as was the writing. Some people may object to the film using a narrator, but it was used interestingly. When he would flash back and the characters spoke they would speak in the voice of the narrator.

It was filmed in Portland and Seattle which is a nice change from LA or NYC.

There's a storm a brewin' at the HTF between Joe Capps and Robert Harris over the color blue or the lack of it in An American In Paris. Harris has challenged Capps to give the time code where he thinks there is lack of blue.

At the time of this posting Mr. Capps has not responded.

To think that this starting with Capps making a comment about BK.

I wonder where this goes.

And oh yes Mr. Capps does read these notes and postings.

Mr. Harris is wrong.  I like Bob Harris.  But he's wrong.  An American In Paris is too brown.  Gigi is too brown.  Most of Warners' transfers are too brown.  The one thing he's right about is that the transfer was made from the Tech black-and-white separation masters and you can't just lose the color blue - it has to be a deliberate choice - and it is a deliberate choice being made by people who don't know what these films looked like.  He admits that Gigi isn't right but excuses it saying the neg is faded and that to get skin tones that look proper you have to add more yellow, which plays havoc with the other colors.  Exactly.  And with today's technology you can overcome any fading when working in the digital domain with a colorist who knows what they're doing.  And all one has to do is look at the previous DVD of Gigi to know that.  No, it's not as sharp, but the color, while not perfect, is much better.  Then all one need do is look at the travesty of a transfer of The Searchers, with its green skies.  There was a brief moment on a forum where Mr. Harris completely agreed with me on that issue and it's there for all to see.  Then he waffled.  Then he changed his tune.  And the Warners' line gets towed.

I sent a blast to various people in my personal e-mail lists, but a lot of performers friended me on Facebook, and that's who I want to know about these events.  I just don't understand the twenty at a time.  The LACCTAA Facebook page has done an Event thing - I didn't want to repeat it.  Maybe I should have.

DR Jane, if you are still looking for book recommendations, a friend of mine suggested
