DR George - I just meant that in the Amazon link you provided, Amazon is saying that it's an import recording.     ???

Shelf number two is up - it's so NEAT out there now, with all the CD boxes where it's easy as pie to see them and all the shipping supplies in one easy to reach place.  Shelf three will get done today, then, when I get back from NY, we'll do the rest.

It is always nice to be organized & have a place for everything. :)

Thanks to all who expressed good wishes for my condition. And I believe I'll try your suggestion tonight, DR Jane. At this point I'm willing to try most anything for a decent night's sleep.

I hope something works.  I know how painful it can be when body parts cramp.

SLEEP WELL VIBES!!

Oh, right, we have a TOD:

DVD:
PUSHING DAISIES SEASON TWO - gosh, I'm really thrilled with this show and saddened by its cancellation.  Favorite episode of the 2nd season featured a female lighthouse keeper (the murder victim), a character named Eliot, an a capella rendition of "Candle on the Water" AND guest star Mary Kay Place!

PETE'S DRAGON - just had to go there.

ULYSSES - Kirk Douglas/Anthony Quinn peplum.

BLU-RAY:
CALIGULA - the new format doesn't make it a better movie, but, the commentaries by MacDowell and Mirren are quite fascinating.

CD:
Helen Reddy -The Woman I Am - The Definitive Collection

I did see that Amazon lists it as an import.  I don't know why, either.  The vendor where our library gets most of the A/V (CDs, DVDs, etc.) lists it as "Special Order/Availability Limited."

Maybe that's there way of indicating that it's difficult to get it from the publisher without having to create a whole new code in their system.

Oh, I forgot, I may see the revival/re-worked How Now, Dow Jones on Sunday afternoon. It's being done at the Minetta Lane as part of the Fringe Festival. It's always been a guilty pleasure. Very few people know the show. It starred Tony Roberts and Brenda Vaccaro (sp) was featured and had more than one song?!?!

Anyway, it's hot here in the living room (we only have AC in the bedroom) and I need to finish my breakfast and get to the office.

Bye.

In my (recent!) previous life, when once I was backstage tour guide host at Disney/MGM (then) Studios -- almost 20 years ago -- I got to host Miss Vaccaro; she's a funny lady who was so surprised I knew about How Now Dow Jones!

She also seemed to get a kick out of my telling her she has good taste in being married to a French fellow!

Ah, memories! .... Had to share!

I got the results of the MRI. The good news was that it was not a herniated disc in my neck. The bad news is that I have a combination of the onset of arthritis and a deterioration of the spongy material between the discs in my spine. Now, I understand why the doctor has signed me up for rehab which begins on Monday morning.

And no new drugs for the present. He's convinced the pain will subside with time and exercise, so I have to use over-the-counter pain medication plus the rest of the Vicodin and Ibuprofin and muscle relaxers he prescribed during my previous two visits.

All very disappointing. On the other hand, it's not life threatening; it's just that my quality of life for the moment is not going to be very pleasant.

DR Matt H, the great news is that it's diagnosed and treatment can begin! I still feel for your pain and discomfort. I was going to sugggest the doctor give you Vicodin and muscle relaxant to help you sleep at night but I see he already has. It worked wonders for me, although I think it will take death to silence my bad attitude on existence.


My problem is that Vicodin and the muscle relaxer he gave me have had almost zero effect on things like cramping and their effects seem to wear off within a couple of hours which usually means by 4 a.m. at the latest, I'm wide awake and miserable.

I don't mean to sound like a whiner. But I haven't had a quality night's sleep in a month (come Saturday), and it's hard to stay positive without proper rest.

But I do appreciate the positive words.


At least, DR Matt, there is some light at the end of the tunnel.  Continued good vibes.

I just read that Paramount is moving Scorsese's SHUTTER ISLAND from an September/October release date to February.

Bummer!

I love this cd!

Now, is it on it that she sings a song along with the composer who can't recall the lyrics and she tells him: "YOU wrote it! You're on your own!"?   :D... something to that effect! ...

What a belter she was!

Yes!  She was singing a duet with Johnny Burke on "I Wouldn't Bet One Penny" and he forgot his own lyrics. ;D

Yes, that's it!

I think the songs are shortened because they are TV performances ....

Check youtube; there's a terrific post of a L.A. production of FOLLIES (Another terrific belter, Karen Moore, BK's friend, is in it!) and she's the lead singer for the Who's That Woman number.

The singing is out of this world!
