Well, you've read the notes, the notes were music to your ears, and now it is time for you to post until the  cows come home - they're currently singing The Story Moos On.

And I finally just watched "The Audition" - the documentary about the Metropolitan Opera Council National Auditions...

Inspiring.

Exciting.

Nerve-wracking.

Heartbreaking.

Humbling.

Well, maybe it was good bk didn't make it to the concert---it turned out to be a late night. The concert went from around 7-9, but two friends didn't get there until the show was over. Peter, one of the latecomers (he's a writer who writes Clive Barker's Hellraiser movies) suggested we go to some place called The Hat which had amazing corned beef and fries. So our party of 7 and the band went there and they had two big tables in the back so we all fit perfectly. By the time they chased us out, everybody felt like they were old friends and were exchanging numbers. It was just a great collection of friends all in one place.

We took our niece (she's on the USC faculty) back to her Silverlake apartment and then went out to North Hollywood to Research Video. The owner wasn't able to make it to the concert but begged us to come there and we spent until after 2AM watching all sorts of rare videos. I had worked with the owner when I was doing the Mercer film. He has immense warehouses of thousands of hours of vintage TV shows on every format imaginable. It is quite overwhelming. I was afraid Susan and Greg might get bored but they were fascinated and Greg mentioned how important he thought the work was that Paul was doing to preserve this material.

So now we're home and quite tired, but will meet another group of friends tomorrow at Chan Dara for Thai lunch.

Now...zzzzzz....

Good morning, all! I went to bed around 1 am, was awakened by the arrival of my neighbor and his girlfriend around 3:45 am, and when he got out of bed and opened something that thudded on the floor around 6:45, I figured the hell with it and got up. I've been playing Bach's "Magnificat"  loudly in retaliation ever since.

My cold has landed, not severely but enough to be an irritant, and I plan to stay indoors all day, dozing, reading, working on taxes. I need to find last year's checkbook to determine if I need to give Joshie a 1099? for the payments for Finale lessons.

I can announce today that it's official: the final missing song from BABES IN TOYLAND has been discovered, and thanks to my friend Loras Schissel, I was the discoverer. Long thought to be an interpolation written by Mabel Barrison who played Jane, "Evaline McCook" was indeed written by Vctor Herbert and Glen MacDonough under the title "She Was A Country Girl." After the June 17, 1903, Chicago opening night, the song was cut for the lousy reviews it got for its performers. It never ended up in the final BABES materials, and the manuscript vocal score, which was in the unidentified section of the Herbert Collection of the Library of Congress, was discovered in the files for Herbert's next show BABETTE. Edward Waters, who catalogued the collection, simply notated it as "found with Babette material." I am very happy.

I am watching A TALE OF TWO CITIES with Dirk Bogarde....what a fine movie!

I do not have TCM HD, but maybe someday.

I would certainly enjoy watching a copy of GIRLS ON THE LOOSE.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Happy Birthday to DR Michael Shayne !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The neighbors next to me hear nothing because the walls are thick. A lot of the sound from upstairs, beyond the vibrations coming through the ceiling, comes from the vents. If the ass thinks he can stay out all night, come in at 4 am and be noisy, then sleep all day, well, fuckem!

The barking dog's been bad enough, and now he's under control, I guess it's time to be a nuisance in another way.
