Well, you've read the notes, the notes spoke of falling orange balls, and now it is time for you to post until the falling orange cows come home.

Good morning all!  First Post!

Sorry I haven't been posting.  Just not much going on right now.

I did notice that they put the 50 best moments of the AC show up  (on Facebook --sorry BK) as he is counting down to the new season.  I was not one of them but they did show the guy with the car.  I guess they know that nothing is being done in my case and don't want to point at it.

it's been a month since the last time I heard from anyone.  So much for the guy who was going to draw my kitchen and send it to me.  When I went over to Lowes (back when I thought I was going to get my money from Turner or the state), I had them draw 2 versions of the kitchen.  It took all of an hour so I know  that even if he set aside 30 minutes, he could have had the drawing done a long, long time ago. 

I hate to say it but it's been six months now and I am very disappointed.   

Vibes to all who need them.

Have a wonder filled day all!

It's muggy and warm in New York. We have sporadic rain. The humidity is 91% and the temperature is 76 and rising. The AC (not Anderson Cooper) is not working full blast at the office and I wish it was. I'm sweating.

Good morning, all! I awoke around 2:25 this morning, and remained awake until 3:45 or so. My last dream was about beng at the Library of Congress and looking at Rodgers & Hart discoveries. I will be a zombie around noon from lack of sleep.

As Ben reported, it will be another hot, humid miserable day in Manhattan. I wll shortly leave for Toyland to await an Office Depot delivery. After that, U'll hit the pharmacy for the month's meds before I head home. Hopefully, we'll have word on a date for the AC, although I'm not holding my breath that it will happen this week

More coffee.

Good morning, all.

Just caught up with the last of yesterday's posts, as I had been blindsided by allergies yesterday and crapped out quite early.  Part of my problem was that I reacted too late to the horrible air quality yesterday, as just referenced by DR Ben.  It was cool-ish and I didn't feel like shutting everything tight and running the a/c.  But that's exactly what I should have done, as the "conditioned" air would have alleviated quite a bit of the sniffling and sneezing misery.  But I finally did so and the evening was comfortable, and I took the opportunity to just sit and listen to FOLLIES on the good system (always a treat after having last listened to something in the car, which is what I'd done over the weekend)...after which, lo and behold, I found myself compelled to pick up Ted Chapin's book to flip through for pictures and whatnot.  But then, lo and behold (except this time I think it should be behold and lo), I found myself thinking:  well, I'll read the foreword and the introduction to dip my toes into the water, and they were so good that I got halfway through chapter one before getting sleepy enough to call it quits for the night.  I am SO glad I took that step.  The book is wonderful, as many of you know.  I have a couple of things I need to finish in the reading department, and then I shall go ahead with it.  And I shall keep listening.  I guess I knew what I was talking about when, even before receiving BK's remix, I said I would treat this historic moment as my golden opportunity to dive into the show.  And that is being accomplished, in spades.

My, that was a long paragraph.  And I haven't even gotten to the part where I'm HORRIFIED at reading of BK's SPIDER.  Oh, there it is.  I'm there now.  At the spider.  HORRIFIED, I tell you.  If a spider suddenly fell on me or my keyboard or anything else, I'd have to move out of the house.

DR George, I do not remember the warm up number in the Playbill.com video. I wonder if it's a substitution?

Thanks for posting it.

Otherwise, I need to get ready for today's rounds of auditions. Yesterday was a an open call, and since the turnout was relatively low, we were done by 1:00pm. However, this morning we are seeing agent's submission, and this afternoon will be callbacks. Hopefully, the A/C in the rehearsal hall will be working properly today. It was a little muggy yesterday.

Thanks for posting it.

DR elmore and DR George - They switch up the pre-show set regularly. This allows for some variety, as well as to allow some flexibility for the cast members should someone need to "sit out" the pre-show or if an understudy is on. And, apparently, they also learn new tunes from time to time to keep things fresh. -And there are some impromptu and not-so-impromptu jams post-show jam sessions at the local Irish pubs around Times Square.

As for the video that was posted on Playbill.com - I love me some Anne Nathan. :)

Good morning, all.

Thanks, Jose. I now want Ants on a Log. Heck, I'd take bone marrow for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Vibes to all in need.

Greetings from Toyland! I have hanged the new clock, and I am having a little breakfast. Then it's back to "Willie the Weeper."

I'm listening to the new "Evita" and am seriously underwhelmed. I think Ricky Martin would be more suited to play Mabel in "Pirates of Penzance," than Che. There is next to no emotion whatsoever in his performance. The only color is a Spanish pronunciation to a few words here and there.

And Jose, you mentioned the accordion in "The Gershwins' P&B," but it's more irritating, even if appropriate here. Maybe it's because I like real Argentine accordion, as opposed to faux Argentine jazz hands orchestrations.

No that is not all.

The Lonesome set that BK is so interested in is also available on DVD. Thinking I might need to pick that up one of these days.

And looking at November's line-up on TCM I see that Sunrise is playing. I shall watch it..
