Good morning, all! The hotel madness continues today and I hope it is resolved ASAP. I think I will book a room at the Capitol Hill Suites, if they have any space, this morning after my trip to the bank. Then, if all else fails, I will at least have a room. I'm bummed I didn't see our BK last night and it would have been nice to see Marrill, whom I've not seen in around six months, and Rodzinski, who I hope will return to HHW son.

Today, I've got a trip to the bank and then I'm working on Brent's album most of the day. I'm hoping to finish most of it over the weekend, take what's hangng over to DC with me and ship it out on Thursday after photocopying everything on Wednesday.

TOD:
    DVD: the second half of the ghost collection from Netflix, I am behind on my classical music viewing and I have a couple of ballets I haven't yet watched
    CD: Guy Haines, Liz Callaway, Offenbach Entre Nous, Marilyn Hill Smith's operetta compilations
    VCR: The Guiding Light for Dakotacelt




Just don't give Dakota the wrong video tape!

Last night I watched THEY DRIVE BY NIGHT on TCM, a strange little Warner Brothers' flick that starts out as a buddy movie with George Raft and Humphrey Bogart but then turns into a potboiler once Ida Lupino enters the scene.  What is truly bizarre is that the makers completely lifted a murder plot from an earlier Bette Davis movie (almost duplicated shot-by-shot) and plunked it into this film.  Has any other movie ever done this kind of thing?


Sure, all the ones that Mikey watches.

DR Ginny I used to get headaches from Pepsi withdrawal.  I'm pleased to say I no longer am addicted.  I wish I liked coffee though, most morning I could use a good wake up jolt & energy boost.

You can get the same thing from a can of Mountain Dew.

Why, yes he does. ;) And he was just in the recently-announced-as-soon-to-close 9 to 5.

I will find that the problem is simply a grain of sand that's lodged into a gear somewhere...

Some say I have a grain of sand lodged into my gears.

Your gears is not where is seems to be lodged!

I do not like Mountain Dew at all!  I rarely drink soda/pop anymore.  It is very, very bad for us, especially for our bones.

Right now, I'm listening to Joe Papp (yes, that Joe Papp) sing "Please Don't Monkey with Broadway," written for the film, Broadway Melody of 1940.

Just had to share. :)

When I got back I watched the season finale of ROYAL PAINS while I ate lunch. Good season closer. I was sure they were going to send Hank into the arms of the blonde girl he was treating. Glad they didn't go there (yet).


I hope not at all.  It was a very short season for this show, and for all the summer shows.  I've been browsing NetFlix for old tv shows and British shows. 

Any suggestions on British shows?


The 1950s British series THE INVISIBLE MAN is lots of fun. Aside from that, THUNDERBIRDS, and ARE YOU BEING SERVED, I don't know from British tv shows.

I did not see any bears today, but this morning when I opened the door to grab my newspaper I came face to furry face with a racoon. He was very cute and seemed quite interested in me.

I just finished listening to the soundtrack to the 1960 Bollywood movie POLICE DETECTIVE...it was quite lively.

Now I am listening to the soundtrack to the 1960 Bollywood movie MADAME ZORRO.

TOD:

CD:
SISTER ACT London Cast

DVD:
TAXI NO:  9211 - gripping morality tale from Bollywood (only two real musical numbers, and one of those during the final credits), demonstrates without a doubt why John Abraham is a star.  Nana Patenkar is quite good, too.  It' nice to find a script that doesn't make excuses for its leading characters, both of whom are highly flawed.
NAKED FAME - Colton Ford goes from porn star to dance floor music star.
MENAGE - French farce with Gerard Depardieu, in the buff and in drag. . .
THE JUDY GARLAND SHOW EPISODE 9 - the one with Barbra, The Smothers Brothers, "Happy Days Are Here Again/Get Happy" and Ethel Merman.
...FOR THE RECORD - two dvd set of a vhs rip of the video which was supposed to be issued in conjunction with Barbra's four disc career encompassing cd set.
ADVENTURELAND - somber, yet, engaging teen comedy (not relying on the usual teen sex comedies issues) filmed right here in Pittsburgh, and Pittsburgh's great amusement park   Rockin' soundtrack.  The film does capture Pittsburgh in the 80s very well.

BOOKS:
FOR THE THRILL OF IT - outstanding look at the Leopold/Loeb murder case in Chicago in the 1920s.
THE DEFECTOR - the latest Gabriel Allon novel from Daniel Silva.  Compelling to say the least, a real page-turner.

I've never seen him in LEGALLY BLONDE, but after seeing him as H.G. Wells, I cannot imagine him as the humpy UPS man. He's such a nice guy, too! Oh, God, I sound like DR MBarnum!

DR singdaw, you should have come in and seen it with me. I love love love Lauren Kennedy; she makes difficult music sound effortless and heartbreaking, and, while her characterization was much different from Steenburgen, you just knew she and Wells were perfect for each other. And she's such a lovely lady offstage. I adore her.

I knew you liked bears but is "raccoon" a euphemism as well?
