I'LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS
« on: December 20, 2010, 12:11:55 AM »

Well, you've read the notes, the notes were cozy and warm, and now it is time for you to post until the cows come home - they've told me that they'll be home for Christmas.  We'll just see about that.

TOD:

I will start with Kritzerland's CDs of EARTH VS THE SPIDER and ATTACK OF THE PUPPET PEOPLE. Two favorite soundtracks of mine...now just hoping for VIKING WOMEN AND THE SEA SERPENT and DAY OF THE OUTLAW to someday show up on Kritzerland!!!!

The 1964 Tokyo, Japan performance of ANNIE GET YOUR GUN (copies of which are winging their way to JRand and BK...if they have not already arrived, and by now they should have)

The Cd soundtrack to the new Bollywood thriller A FLAT, which I simply cannot stop listening to.

I am very sleepy and about to head to bed, so that is all that is coming to me at this moment.

Good morning, all! Another night of peculiar dreams and little sleep, but I did sleep quite a lot the night before so perhaps it will even out tomorrow with a night of normal sleep and pleasant dreams,

Today I have to be at the Loesser office at 11 to assemble Acts Two and Three of the Jan 10, 1956 vocal score. Assembling the first act went very smoothly - I think we ended up with only page we could not locate - so I hope the same holds true for Acts 2 and 3. After that, I get myself home in hopes that some checks will arrive in the post.

I think I will make some ginger tea in hopes that it aids in breaking up this crud invading my respiratory system. I've got to look over some music pertaining to LADY OF THE SLIPPER and continue through my textual amendments.

I've bought a ton of CDs this year, and I think the nicest surprise from Amazon.co.uk was finding the old Lehman Engel recording of THE DESERT SONG with Nelson Eddy and the spectacular Doretta Morrow had been put on CD!

BK,

Did you have to mention the Christmas Eve Do?

Now, I'm really going to miss it.

TOD:

Aside from the original Broadway cast album of WICKED, he only CDs I've bought during the past year have been from Kritzerland. (e.g. SUGAR, PROMISES, PROMISES, BILLY BARNES, THE UNFORGIVEN, A BRIDGE TOO FAR, etc.)

I'm going to try to finish my screenplay this week.

I've only got another 10-15 pages to go, but I've got to tie everything up and that's not always the simplest thing to do.

I know it's raining in Los Angeles, but it's cold as Hell here in Austin.

Wanna trade?

Monday morning greetings!  After a very good night's sleep, I was up early today, organizing recipes for the week and making lists.  I am trying not to get what Rob calls "holiday head."

Oh wow DR MBarnum the blue tree really does look nice when you light it up!

I got my niece a purple tree (bought i last year and gave it to her this year). Purple is my favorite colour and was her favorite colour last year. It is similar to the blue one. So pretty too when it is lit up!

Orders are coming in steadily - a good thing.  At this point, many more Casino Royale orders, but then again, I posted on the Bacharach Facebook page, which has eleven thousand friends.

A few Kritzerland favorites: "Sugar," both "Promises, Promises," "The Brain from Planet X"

And the rest: "Timon of Athens," "Woman of the Year," "The Scottsboro Boys," "Loving Repeating," Bruce Springsteen's album of Pete Seeger classics.
