Jane -- I thought the "someone is trying to steal my picture" was a very original birthday card.  I didn't understand it, but I thought it was very clever.  Sorry to hear you were busted as a shoplifter.

I may as well mention it first, maybe I'm in the minority here, but my favorite James Bond spy film is:
ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE

It's mine, too.  I've always thought that George Lazenby was a terrific Bond, too.  So there.

RLP, singing all one's life is well and fine.  It still doesn't necessarily prepare a singer for the rigours of Boradway or theatre singing where one has to sustain his voice through eight shows a week.

I might give you that some voices these days are not as honed as they once were...but one shouldn't want their American Idols to be competitive with mediocrity.  And there are still chorus people on Broadway who probably have stronger, better, and more diligently trained voices than the best of the American Idol singers.

I, for one, deplore the trend of miking the Hell out of everything.  This probably is because I come from a discipline where as an actor (not even a singer) was expected to be able to project and hit the back wall.  Something I've always been able to do even in barns like the Ahmanson out here.

But that is the problem...the barns...more than lack of discipline and training, I think...require the necessity of miking.  Over the years, cities have built these huge theatres that are more suited to capacity rather than  performance and acoustics.  Not what best serves the show, but what best serves the box-office.  So you get theatres with rotten acoustics and dead spots and are a trial even for the best voice.

At the moment I canít think of any more favorites, so hereís my list.  Since I donít consider my all time favorite movie, CASABLANCA, a spy movie it isnít on the list.

THE IPCRESS FILE
THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH
THREE DAYS OF CONDOR
ONCE UPON A HONEYMOON
NOTORIOUS

James Bond films.  Just donít ask me to name my favorites.  I read the books first and recall from the first moment Sean Connery came on the screen thinking ďwow, he is James BondĒ

My brother introduced me to the Bond books, then my father.  All was fine until my father decided they werenít appropriate for his little girl and confiscated them.  Fortunately my mother smuggled them back to me.  It was a big event when my father, brother & I went to see the first Bond movie together.

I don't know many spy movies, I confess.  I've only seen one Bond movie, and I can't even remember which one it was.  I have, however, seen Notorious, and I quite enjoyed it.  So I'll list that as my favorite :)

Update: Mr. Pest Control Man is here.  We have ascertained that it is not in the attic.  He is now checking the crawlspace under the bedroom, which is where he thinks the problem now is.

Speaking of Bond, I quite enjoyed the James Bond parody they did on Deep Space Nine--"Bashir--Julian Bashir."  In fact, I think Malcom McDowell's nephew Alexander Siddig (aka Siddig El Fadil) would make a quite credible Bond, although they would have to explain his Sudanese ancestry.  For those of you who are not Star-Trek-obsessed like me, I will add that this episode involved all of the main characters trapped in a holodeck simulation of a Bond story, and after fighting the megalomaniac villain at every turn, Bashir realized that the one way to escape was simply to give up and let him destroy the (virtual) world.

Actually, I liked that episode quite a bit too, but it was actually titled "Our Man Bashir", and obvious Flint reference.   I especially enjoyed the name of one of Barshir's conquests in the episode, Mona Lovesit.  (Obviously, since I felt obliged to correct you, I'm more Star Trek-obssessed than yourself.  God, I'm so hopeless.)

And I agree...Mr. Siddig would make a terrific James Bond.  As to his Sudanese-ness...so what?  Why would they bother having to explain it?  I mean, if Bond can be played by half-a-dozen different guys without bothering to explain why he looks quite a bit different from movie to movie, I think people would be perfectly happy to accept a Bond of a slightly different skin tone.  

And on the subject of different skin tones....

There was a rumor floating 'round the net a few months ago that Beyonce Knowles was being considered for the new Lois Lane in the latest Superman movie.  Now, I don't have a problem with LL being African-American, but I'd at least like her to be played by a DECENT actress.....

There was a Bond-ripoff movie called Operation Kid Brother, which starred Neal Connery (yep, Sean's brother!) as the superspy.  And a lot of the cast of the Bond movies showed up in it, too.  It's a piece of crap.  But for some oddball reason I've yet to put my finger on,  I've been dying to see it again.  Go figger.  

I wonder if there's any chance at all it'll come out on deeveedee?

Update: Not beneath the house.  He is back in the attic.  If it's not there we may have a real bad problem because it might mean the stupid idiot Dead Rodent is in the wall somewhere.  How stupid Dead Rodents get in walls is beyond me.

Almost as bad as dead rodent smell in the bedroom, is insect spray in the bedroom.  I woke up yesterday morning and found that I had three small bites (probably spider) on me.  So yesterday afternoon, I sprayed the bedroom.  Unfortunately, eight hours later, when I went to bed, the smell was still there -- just as strong as ever.  The cats were smart enough to sleep somewhere else last night, but I toughed it out.
