LOL-There is no way I'm asking my kid that!

Well, give me his number and I'll call and ask him!

For some reason, we are having trouble accessing our Road Runner email here in Chicago.  If you need to reach me, please do so via PM here on HHW or on Facebook.

Wouldn't that be a long commute for him?

I watched the blu-ray of THE ROBE and was duly impressed with its transfer.
I watched the dvd of CAPRICE and was entertained by the movie.

I believe I shall watch the blu-ray of QUA VADIS tonight, courtesy of Netflix.

After the crappy DVD transfer that was all that was available for so long with THE ROBE, the Blu-ray was a revelation. I watched QVO VADIS on Blu-ray the day I got it, and I can't for the life of me remember my impressions of the transfer. I'd have to go put it back in the player and rewatch.

When I went back downstairs, I did go ahead and watch the Blu-ray of REPULSION so I could finish up my last review disc in the stack.

The transfer is everything I thought it would be with a gloriously sharp and detailed black and white transfer. The uncompressesd sound was really nice, too. Had a nice full sound even for mono.

After I watched the film and sampled the bonus features to ascertain their modes of delivery (all were in HD, either 1080i or 1080p), I searched and searched for something I felt in the mood to watch.

I settled on the Joan Hickson/Miss Marple series A MURDER IS ANNOUNCED. It consists of 3 one hour episodes, and I could only get through the first two and a little of the third one before I needed to come upstairs and get the review for REPULSION worked on.

Good thing, though, because my eyes were getting very heavy.

I have left THE FASHION SHOW to watch while I eat lunch tomorrow. Otherwise, in the afternoon, I'll be finishing up with Miss Marple and then likely watching another VERONICA MARS episode.

How lovely to know I will be completely at liberty this weekend to enjoy anything I wish

My eyes are really heavy so I think I'll head downstairs and go to bed.

Good night!

the last time I tuned into the SciFi/SyFy channel, it seemed more like the Playboy channel.

 ???  What were you watching!

I have no clue. It was whatever series aired before MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 and it was always a lot of sex and very little sci-fi...at least as far as I could tell.

Jane, if you're talking about the Dolores blurb in the Times - that had to have been written before they changed everything - claw machine is gone now - it's awful and I shall never ever return unless someone tells me they put it back the way it wuz.

Back from a perfectly nothing movie called Public Enemies.  Typical Michael Mann nothingness - the man has absolutely no filmmaking skills and all the droning Barber-esque (think Adagio for Strings) music tragically blaring (as if we're supposed to CARE about anyone in this film) isn't going to help this soulless director.

After getting my errands done this afternoon, I met up with most Errant and Truant/Former DR Jason.  It was the first time we had seen each other in person since last year! -Well, since December.  He's been busy(!), I've been busy and/or traveling, and we just never were able to coordinate our schedules until today. It was great to see him again, and we had a very nice catch-up session.

We ended up giving a new-ish place a try for a late lunch/early dinner, Schnipper's Quality Kitchen. It's one of the restaurants that occupies part of the ground floor space of the new New York Times Building.  Both of us ended up having the same thing, their "Mac & Joe". It was a huge serving of their Sloppy Joe mix topped with a huge serving of their Mac and Cheese. it was HUGE.  It was quite tasty, but we both regretted cleaning our plate.  Again, it was just a whole lotta food.  -And I also had their Salted Caramel Milkshake.

*After I walked with Jason back to the Broadway Theater - he's doing the merchandise thing for Shrek - I ended up walking back down to Times Square to take a seat for a bit. Needless to say, the food coma set in. ::)

And shot on digital video - maybe the worst-looking major film I've ever seen.

DR TCB - My friend, Andy, was walking around his neighborhood the other day, and came across this:


Do you know anything about this?  He's trying to find more information himself.

DR Ginny - Good to hear that you and Richard made it safe and sound - if a little delayed - to Chicago. Now just make sure you don't end up appearing in one of those "Librarians Gone Wild" videos. ;)

Funny, I want a grand baby.  If only Craig could find a job I'm pretty sure they would be very willing to give me one.

DR Jane - When I first read this, I was trying to figure out what you meant.  "Why would Jane want a "grand baby"? -As in, "It was grand knowing you," or "We'll have a grand ole time."  ;)

Back from our opening--decided not to go to the party, just too tired.  Went extremely well.  One slight mishap with the truck that carts in half of the Whitehall and Marx set--the stage left side got caught on a traveler and so the firm was Whitehall & for the first part of I Wanna Be a Producer.  I am having some extremely childish hurt feelings as guess whose biography they left out of the program?

DR Michael S - Thanks for those "soap opera crossovers".  I remember the whole Linda Dano "stunt".  I think that was part of one of her anniversary years with the network.


50th or 75th?

Well, in "soap opera time", probably her 10th.  ;)
