Then, with my yearning for musicals still in place from last night, I put in SINGIN' IN THE RAIN. I wish I had listened to the commentary instead of the regular track. I'm not sure I've ever listened to that commentary track all the way through. (It's pieced together with comments from many contributors). I've always loved Ron Haver's commentary on the Criterion laserdisc of the title, so I should give this one a chance. The next time I take it out, I will listen to it.

Next, I skimmed through today's AS THE WORLD TURNS. Nothing for me, but the boys are on tomorrow's show. It looked interesting.

I finished watching the singers on AMERICAN IDOL. I didn't think a single one of the remaining vocalists was at his or her best (including Danny). And I don't know WHAT the panel was smoking to give raves to either Matt or Megan because they were both poor. Megan's was understandable, but Matt missed many notes and breathed in all the wrong places. They ignore all of the rudiments for good singing. I just don't GET them at all.

LOST had another excellent episode, though the ending did NOT take me by surprise. Maybe I'm starting to catch on to their methods!  :D

I loved LIFE ON MARS. I'm assuming Jason O'Mara was using his natural Irish brogue during the undercover scenes. That man could whisper sweet nothings to me in that accent ANY TIME!

And how about that ending!

re: last night's DWTS.


*



I agree. I was fine with who went home last night. But surprised at who was in B2. I thought that person was more popular! :(


Jennifer, I am curious why you believe that the vast majority of the public is incapable of voting on these programs for anyone except who they consider popular.  If I was going to vote for DWTS or AI, I certainly believe that I am smart enough to vote for the person who gave the best performance and not just for who had the most airtime or the largest fan club.  We are not exactly talking about superstars on DWTS and I don't think that seeing someone several times in the opening weeks on AI is going to make me vote for them if they don't have the talent.

I don't think I was clear.  In most cases i would say that on DWTS popularity makes a big difference.

But in this specific case (steve wozniak) - i don't actually think he is that popular or has a huge fan base. What i meant with my comments were that on dialidol last week he was near the top of
the votegetters. So i thought he was more popular (from what i saw of the votes). ANd since last week was combined to this week i was surprised that he was in the B2 (cause i thought he had been more popular, if that makes sense).

I only have one more review item in the stack, Criterion's DANTON which doesn't come out until March 31st. If nothing comes tomorrow for review, I'm going to take tomorrow off and hopefully watch THE ROBE on Blu-ray if it arrives tomorrow as I'm expecting.

If it doesn't come in the mail, I'll still take the day off and watch all the TV from tonight I didn't get to. I didn't even watch the IDOL results show tonight.

I do think DWS is a popularity contest in the beginning.  If you think Cloris Leachman was voted for because she was a good dancer... well....  I think as the show goes farther along the people only there because of popularity start to lose votes.    I vote and will say sometimes I vote for who I like personally or won't vote for who I don't like even if they can dance...I'm sure I'm not the only one

That certainly is sad about Natasha Richardson, but I have to admit that I had no idea who she was.

I need to install my tax software now since I'll be working on my taxes either this Sunday or next.

So, good night!

MattH, I'm beginning to have a bad feeling, like maybe your invoice didn't get printed out - can you forward me your paypal invoice or just tell me the date you sent it so I can check?  I know it was after the pre preorders, so maybe my helper did your package, but I want to check and make sure.

I am very sorry to hear the sad news about Natasha Richardson. I am glad her family did not elect to keep her on life support for an extended time. That is even sadder.

Well, even though I don't have rehearsal tomorrow, I do have a production meeting at 9:00am - eight hours from now, so... But since tomorrow is supposed to be another gorgeous day, it will be nice to get out and about before Noon.  ;)

Goodnight.

And my copies of the new Kritzerland releases arrived today!!!   Hoo and Ray.

I am thrilled that Kritzerland is releasing again at semi-regular intervals.

Why do you people thousands of miles away get yours before I get mine?  Why, Bruce?   ;D

It's the same with me.  I always get Kritzerland shipments later than other people. ::)

But at least I get them! ;)

However, not today. :P

I'm watching it right now and have about 20 minutes left.  I've never heard Jason's real accent.

word of the day:  Eyas  ( a bird taken from it's nest for training)   

A friend of mine has a red & blue parrot that will live to be 80 years old or more.  (It was her mother's, who passed away).   The parrot loves to drive in the car, it sits on top of the passanger seat in the pickup truck.  They had to buy a car that will hold the travel cage (which is bigger than me) so they can travel back and forth between Oregon and Ventura with the bird.

I'm sort of hungry, but I'm quite bored of Fruity Snacks and biscotti - the only other options are soup or an English muffin, neither of which sounds appealing.  I only had the pastrami sandwich and one latke for lunch, but it was very filling.  Then I had a biscotti and a half and a pack of Fruity Snacks about three hours ago.

Toasted?  Plain?  With butter?  Peanut butter?  Inquiring minds want to know!
