And because my days of being able to torture my children are quickly drawing to a nigh, I put on BAR MITZVAH BOY this morning for them to listen to.  :)

In other good news, my sub emailed to say everything went 99.9% well last night, which of course means that CFC has probably sent a Tolstoy length missive to the director about the .1% that didn't.  :)

Good morning, all! I took two Tylenol PM and could not tear myself from bed this morning: 11 hours, which is way too long. Also, another weird dream: an epic production of CANDIDE that lasted longer than a Wagnerian opera at Radio City in Oxford, OH.

I asked last night about the producer of CATCH ME IF YOU CAN because I do not like her; when she produced THE TRIUMPH OF LOVE, composer Jeffrey Stock wanted me to do the orchestrations, and Ms Lion, who did everything possible to keep Jeffrey under her thumb, made horrible comments about my work and my resume ("we don't want that little Goodspeed sound"), refused to meet me or communicate with me. And you know what? Bruce Coughlin gave her a nice little Goodspeed sound for the score after they sacked the two previous orchestrators. I do do not like her nor do I wish her anything good.

DR Ginny, it sounds to me from your comments as if this weekend John is going off life support and I am
 so sorry to hear this. He was a good man, always a friend to me, and I have nothing but good wishes and sympathy to offer you, Richard, and the rest of the family. I've known him for 40 years, admired his good deeds and musicianship, and been lucky to consider him a friend. This is very sad.

DR JMK, it's nice to end this post on a happier note: I hope the bar mitzvah is a fantastic event and runs smoother than some of your PRODUCERS performances.

Heading down now to do some general cleaning up (of the house) and then I'll start thinking about what to prepare for lunch.

Well, my sister's cats have been fed and the messes cleaned up. :P

I need to take a shower, get dressed, do a load of laundry, go to my place and feed my cat, then go to work for a few hours.

Have a good day, all!

Michael, do you have On-Demand?  I think the entire two-year run is available on Comcast On-Demand.  Whatever you have might have it also.

TOD

I'm guessing I have several times in history I'm obsessed over:
    18th-Century London: Sir Henry Fielding and the beginnings of a needed police system   
                                       Pope, Swift, Gay, Fielding and a lot of wits I would enjoy meeting
                                       Imagine attending the Dublin premiere of Handel's MESSIAH

    New York, 1900-1905: I could attend the opening night of BABES IN TOYLAND and several other
                                       Victor Herbert shows, not to mention seeing Maude Adams in PETER PAN
                                       the opening of the subway system

I am up after a somewhat sleepless night of sleeplessness.  Oh, I slept but I woke up three or four times and each time it was slow going falling asleep, some of which has to do with a weird noise outside - I've heard this weird noise for a few days and finally isolated its source two days ago, but don't know how to fix it (it's emanating from a box near the pool - I think this box controls the lights in the pool, which don't work anyway, and maybe some outdoor lights (which also don't work) - but this is the first time I've actually heard it while inside the house.  So, I'm going to call the Handy Man and see if he can come and fix it and then do some other work I need done.

A very happy Bar Mitzvah to Gabe.  If he needs help on his speech, have him read the epilogue of Kritzerland.

Damn! I just spilled a full cup of coffee all over my table, drenching two Netflix returns, several bills and lotterytickets, all of MOST HAPPY FELLA and my notes on Brent's album.  It's a mess and I am completely furious at my stupidity and carelessness. Damn! Damn!! Damn!!!

I completely forgot that she of the Evil Eye is today, so I must go do the long jog and then leave for a little while - I'd intended to jump right into the liner notes, but that won't be happening now until about twelve-thirty.

For a lot of fun and a total waste of time, go to yearbookyourself.com

I look really good in 1952 and 1954.  And I did always want to be Homecoming Queen!

Luckily, because I am photobucket-impaired, I cannot post the results.  But, it's kind of a hoot!

I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!

During the waning minutes of my time in bed this morning, Jonathan Schwartz played "Crazy He Calls Me" sung by Aretha Franklin.  WOWZA!!!!

*And on another WNYC related note, the overnight host has recently been playing cuts from Roberta Flack's "First Takes" album. Another WOWZA!  Her rendition of "The Ballad of The Sad Young Men" is ever so wistful.
