Apparently there was a bat hugging the Space Shuttle on its last launch.

I suppose we will now see someone produce THE BAT FROM OUTER SPACE.     ::)

DRs Jane and George your library info was interesting. I wonder if what you describe is very common in the US.

One other thing is all the libraries here also have to have the same books in French. Not sure what the ratio is. But every time i look up a popular book in English i notice that my library has the same book in French.  I wonder how well translated they are.

DR cillaliz, re: your question last night about my opinion of the DWTS dance-off.

In theory i thought the idea was okay. But i misunderstood how they were going to do it. So i basically think it is a joke.

If they took the 2 bottom vote getters, had a dance-off and then the judges voted it would have been okay IMO.

But instead the judges vote again and their votes count for half. So basically whoever was the bottom audience vote-getter will go home almost for sure. Unless we had someone with a 27/30 vs someone with a 17/30.

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! :(

Good morning!

More gray this morning even though it's definitely warmer. We're back into the 70s again today, but the nights are still cold. Maybe the sun will come out later.

re: last night's AMERICAN IDOL

*

*















I was sort of confused last night. Did they want people to see the songs country style or pick country songs and sing them in their own style? They got mad at Lil Rounds for not singing her country song in an R&B style. Then right after they got mad at Adam for singing his country song in his rock style. That seemed very contradictory.

For sure my least favorite of all the contestants is Michael Sarver. I just don't care for him.  I was sort of surprised (not that they weren't good last night) that they went overboard praising kris allen and matt giraud.

My work project today is the next Criterion release IL GENERALE DELLA ROVERE. It's directed by Roberto Rossellini, but I've never seen the movie so it should be an interesting afternoon with it. There are not a ton of bonus features either, though I have no idea how long these featurettes on the disc are.

I suspect I'll be spending a fair amount of time on this not only this afternoon but also this evening.

More re: IDOL


Dial idol results. Very accurate prediction of who will go tonight:

dfiuo so wowioueiu  iu iu low wow wowowow jk who show shat what souid jk kj jk
These dial idol results are very accurate. I must say i am shock over the results.
Okay no surprise that danny gokey is a clear #1. But i am surprised that simon's
negative comments re: adam (who has been a solid #2) would put him down to
6th??? I am pretty surprised that anoop is a clear #2. Even though he did well
last night. I didn't realize that someone could do well one week and gain so many
votes. Lil is #3, where she has been. It's interesting that even though she got
criticized she stayed at #3. Then you have matt giraud and kris allen. So i guess
the judges praises made a big difference for them. That leaves megan, allison and
alexis as the B3. Alexis had been very popular. But one bad night and she could
very well be gone. It's definitely between those 3 for the bottom. I could maybe
see the judges saving megan. That is crazy that she could do that well and still
be B3. I guess the public really does not like her. Personally i loved her pre-top
36. I like her and her style. But i dislike the way she performs. It's like she's
never been on stage before (which granted she hasn't). But it shows!

DR Matthew - so sorry to read about your mishap.   ***VIBES*** that you are not in much pain and that your recovery progresses quickly.

I'm awake.  Thanks for the vibes for the leg.  It's all good.  No pain at all today, probably will not do a walk today just to be sure, but all seems normal.  Kinda seemed worse (if you were there) than it is, I suppose.   

Now if I could just get those rhythms correct.....  :)

Just another mention of Donald's radio show. It was a great interview. I listened to half yesterday and finished today (it's 55 minutes and this darn job interrupted my listening pleasure). If you haven't listened, get over there and do it. David Pevsner is funny and intelligent and talented and Mr. Feltham gives great interview!

BK-

In the olden golden days a recording artist(singer) would have to wait to sing whilst the Band or Orchestra played the song thru. How did this start and what was the reason behind it? And when forsooth did this kind of presentation stop in the music business?

Wednesday has now joined Monday and Thursday as the most crowded in my viewing schedule. However, once LIFE and LIFE ON MARS end, the schedule will smooth out a little bit.

The internet seems rather quiet this morning. I've gotten all of my usual surfing done, and it isn't even 11 a.m. yet. Amazing.

I'm going to log off and play some computer games before heading downstairs to check the mail and start on lunch.

Absolutely disgusting papparazzo from TMZ re:  Natasha Richardson.  Shoving a camera in relatives' faces and asking "How ya feelin' about dis?"  I turned it off after about 5 seconds.

Got an unintentionally hilarious PM from an IMDb user about FF.  He had evidently been in contact with the lying author, who had been decrying the film Frances' inaccuracies.  This guy who PM'd me said he was "inclined to agree" with the lying author that the film wasn't accurate.  Considering the fact that the film was based on the lying author's lies, I find the whole interchange humorous, to say the least.

Not sure exactly, other than to state the tune once through musically and then let the singer go - part of it probably had to do with the brevity of most thirty-two bar songs.  They certainly had stopped doing it by the late 40s.  When we were doing Twiggy's album there was an old-fashioned song we were doing and I asked for the very thing you're talking about - a full statement of the song musically (which we then made sound like an old 78) then Twiggs' vocal.
