Finally, a group photo outside the restaurant:

bk, jay, panni, pogue, jane and keith

What a fab photo!  Very festive.  I'm jealous!  DR Jane is a brunette; I expected a blond because of her web photo!  She and Keith are indeed a handsome couple.

Everyone looks very contented, and I know how Du-Par's can do that for you, but I also know that DR Jay is right about the pleasant company.  For a moment I thought the Pogues' photo was Guy Haines  and a date.  Didn't you invite him?

Do you want to know why I have merciless sport with these self-proclaimed "reviewers" at DVD sites?  Read this http://www.hometheaterforum.com/htforum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=196905review of Monster - I mean, do these people have even a modicum of writing skills and if not why are they "reviewing" DVDs for what purports to be an important DVD site?

Breakfast was fun. Except I somehow got jam or syrup in my purse (which was on the floor). Other than that, lots of laughs. Great to meet DRs Jane and Keith. I expected them to look seventeen and be in bathing suits. They still look pretty young, though - but no bathing suits. Next time it will have to be a pool party.

I don't think CAROLINE has a chance of winning.  The show is only on Broadway because the Times is in love with Tony Kushner and gave it a good review at Joe Papp's so they figured that it would do good on Broadway but the other papers who disliked it downtown still disliked it after the move.  And it won't tour so there goes the out-of-town voters.

Dear reader Jenny sends her best and will be back as soon as she rids herself of the virus currently on her home computer.  Said virus causes photos of naked Russian children to present themselves willy-nilly and also nilly-willy.  Now, here conundrum is this: She can't get online to rid herself of the worm - is there a way to do it offline if someone posts the cure and I send it to her via e-mail?

DR Jose, one mustn't forget about the Tony voters who live outside NYC and are in charge of national tours of shows. Their numbers are larger than the "in the know" NYCers and are generally given as the reason THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE won Best Musical over URINETOWN and THE LION KING over RAGTIME. They felt those shows would have a healthier life on the road if they had the Best Musical Tony as a prize to herald their achievements.

I'm not saying it always works this way - obviously PASSION won over BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, but there were other forces at play that year.

I honestly think AVENUE Q has a better shot at beating WICKED than CAROLINE.

Why don't you bore a hole in yourself and let the sap run out?  ;D

You've got the brain of a four-year-old boy, and I bet he was glad to get rid of it. ::)

Don't look now, but there's one man too many in this room, and I think it's you.  :-*

BK,

Won't DR Jenny have to get online if you send her a fix via e-mail?  It sounds like she has a browser hijacker rather than a virus or worm on her computer (if these photos are showing up in Internet Explorer).  There is a free program called Ad-Aware that she can install that should fix the problem.  You can get it at http://www.lavasoftusa.com .  Another good program is Spybot Search and Destroy.  It is also free and can be found at download.com .  Get me more info about how the virus (if it is a virus) behaves, and we'll see if we can't get her fixed up in short order.

BTW, sorry I couldn't make it to breakfast, but I was with you all in spirit.

I'm not much of a fan, either.

Also, "La Vie."  There, I said it.  Now what?

VinTek - I was about to suggest the same software....it got rid of a worm that I had that I couldn't get rid of any other way.  And I think Mr BK also uses Ad Aware.

True DRPANNI....so true.  And a Kauffman said once at the back of the house during a stage performance of one of his shows for the Brothers Marx:  "Oh My God....wait a second....I think I just heard something I wrote."

I'll recommend adaware.  She can get e-mail online at school, but her conundrum is that she can't get online at home.

I don't normally read the reviews there, but since you offered a link, I clicked and read. You're right; it's wretched writing puffed up in an attempt to resemble someone more learned than the writer obviously is. It's very frustrating to read this kind of composition which subsequently goes on to get kudos from follow-up readers on the site! Argh!

Oh, my droogs, I am now the proud owner of Billie on DVD, starring our very own Miss Patty Duke.

The "reviews" on that site are all like that, with the exception of the fellow who mostly reviews the classics - he's just boring, but not a total idiot.  The others are all barely out of their teens, but you'd think they'd have at least an inkling of how to construct a sentence or a thought, and even if they didn't, you'd think they'd at least proof the drivel they write.  And yes, then all the other idiots come on and say "Great review".

Someone last week was asking about the differences between the two LP releases of Coco. I had to wait until I got home to look it up.

On the first issue: The Overture fades directly into the first song (But That's They Way You Are)

On the second issue: There is a short pause between.


On the first issue:   The Money Rings Out Like Freedom has a long dance section.

On the second issue: The dance section has been cut

On the first issue: The monologue preceding the song Gabrielle has a silent background

On the second issue: The monlogue is underscored using the music of Coco.

On the first issue: Orbach's, Bloomingdales, Best and Saks is missing a very short segment of dance music.

On the second issue: The short segment has been reinstated, but the long dance segment on the first issue has been cut.

The second issue was also remixed.

To tell which LP release you have. Look at the label. The first issue you will see that each song is numbered and they are uniformed. They look like this.

1
2
3
4

On the second issue/remix the numbers are staggered. Like this

   1
2
    3
4

Not sure if you're serious TCB. If so, neither one got a nomination. I think JRand and MBarnum were speaking in jest.

If you're not serious, then pardon my intrusion into your post ;-)

I certainly hope not, Ben.  I believe both gentlemen passed away several years ago.

I love it when deeveedee reviewers write about "edge enhancement".  What the hell is "edge enhancement" supposed to be, anyway?  

Good God, that Monster reviewer really has his head up his nether regions, doesn't he?  I think his edges need enhancing.  

I just finished watching the new deeveedee of Dracula Has Risen from the Grave.  I wonder whether or not "edge enhancement" could've detracted from my enjoyment of the movie?  

The Significant Other and myself will be watching the Disney version of Tarzan later tonight.  I wonder if his edges will be enhanced?

Loved the pictures of the breakfast get together! Someday we really must have an HHW get together for our northwest denizens.

I think we should do it this summer in Portland...what say you TCB, Jed, JMK, Jane, Ann and anyone else in the vicinity who I am forgetting!

BILLIE...JRand53 sent me a copie of that a few years back. I don't know what I really though of it. It was strangly entertaining and yet I don't know if I liked it or not. Very odd indeed.

Actually Michael, I had asked about the differences between the album and the CD release.  I didn't know that there were two album releases.  I'll have to check which one I have and compare it with the CD.  Anyway, thanks for the info!

The Billie DVD is full frame, but since the director is not very good (Don Weis) and basically a TV sort of guy, I'm sure it will be fine.

Edge enhancement - someone would have to come to my house and point it out to me.  Every time they post screenshots showing the supposed horrifying edge enhancement, I simply don't see it.  These dweebs all went to the same "school" - all they know is "solid blacks" "gray scale" "edge enhancement" "debris" (I mean they ALL use the exact same terminology!) and other such bushwa.

Me!  I remember last year, several people talking about meeting sometime this spring in Portland.  Summer should be fine, also.  I'm certainly up for it!

I think a HHW get-together would be great, but as far as I know, I'm the only one in about a 400-mile radius.

So sad to be all alone in the world.

By the way, Sorry, Wrong Number with Miss Stanwyck was quite a dull affair, save for the last few minutes.   There were flashbacks within flashbacks, for Pete's sake!  I enjoyed seeing Mister Lancaster, but then, I always enjoy seeing him.  

I wonder if edge enhancement marred my enjoyment of the film.
