Wednesday morning greetings!  Today I need to pick up the prescription that my doctor convinced the insurance company to pay for.

I've been listening to Respighi's three wonderful chamber orchestra suites "Ancient Airs and Dances," and I want to know why the main theme of Set 2, No 4: "Bergamasca" sounds so much to me like a Western Movie theme rather than an Italian Renaissance tune.

I love these, too.  Do you have the old Mercury Living Presence recording?

Yes, we get your drift, bk. Franco Zefferrelli was gay and preferred showing men's bodies to women's. I'm not defending the practice, and certainly am not defending the wretched film that is ENDLESS LOVE, but you have to admit there are plenty of heterosexual directors who are like-minded in terms of showing female flesh and keeping the males in their movies covered.

That's how many of us gay guys feel when we're subjected to ENDLESS exploitive shots of the female anatomy in movies with no male anatomies in evidence.

I've been listening to Sir Neville Marriner and the Orchestra of St Martin-in-the-Fields; I have his recordings of all the chamber orchestra pieces. I grew up with the Mercury on LP, don't have the CD.

Especially those dreadfully endless, humorless, and often plotless Cinemax at Night movies from the 1990s!

***COUNTER-TOP VIBES***
for DR Cillaliz and her helpers this evening!!!

Thanks!  I'm hoping that there aren't any HVAC emergencies around town.  My helper works for a heating and cooling company and there's always a chance he could get called in.  I think that's one of the reasons I'm a little nervous.

Exactly - equality, baby - there was none in Endless Love, and I agree about other films.  I also think that I was, you know, having fun.

Betsy's cousin, who is a caterer, flew into Portland with his family on Monday and they did some winery tours for his business so that he can write off the trip.  She didn't know he was actually in town yet, and had gone out on a client drinking meeting last night after work at one of the tony downtown hotels, when who should walk in but her cousin and his family, looking for hors d'oeuvres!  So that was kind of a neat little moment for Betsy.

Other family arrives today, and then tomorrow the big onslaught.  We had our rehearsal with the Rabbi yesterday and Gabe did great with his Torah portion and haftorah, and his D'var Torah is fantastic (including a very funny jab at Fox News, I might add).

I splurged yesterday and got a pretty expensive hand painted tallit for the occasion.

Now....if only one certain person would call in sick today, my work day would be wonderful.

That's all I'm sayin'.

I think it was one called My Chauffer, but I can't remember the titles and there may have been one with Robert Carradine that I liked better.

Does anyone know who wrote One Way Ticket, the Mama Cass (and Helen Reddy) tune?  Was it Mann/Weil?

I'd oblige, DR Ron Pulliam, but I'm guessing it's not quite the kind of sick that you had in mind.

No, it was not Mann/Weil. 

Google can point the way.

Yes, but isn't it funny how you can find ten zillion Internet sites that post the complete lyrics to a song, but only a handful that have the courtesy to identify the composer and the lyricist?

I dunno....I Googled the song and found it right away.

Was quicker than posting here asking if someone knew.

Robert Carradine was in a couple of CIP flicks....the most famous probably is The Pom Pom Girls.
