YESTERDAY, TODAY, AND TOMORROW
« on: January 14, 2005, 11:58:50 PM »

Well, you've read the notes, you've been confounded by the notes, you are now totally confoosed (as Li'l Abner would say), day-wise, and now it is time to post until the cows come home, which will, of course, be yesterday, today, or tomorrow.

I have not yet done the dance of the Wussburger.  I have not done the dance of the Seven Veils either.  Perhaps I shall do the dance of the Seven Wussburgers.

The title of today's notes has put a song in my head.  Between Yesterday and Tomorrow.  I believe it is a Michel Le Grand song...does anyone know?

Sounds like Michel.  Don't WUSSBURGER - we miss you when you're gone.

Between yesterday and tomorrow,
There is more there is more than a day.

Between day and night between black and white
There is more, there is more than gray.

Between the question and the answer
There's the silence of the sea.

Between the cradle and the grave,
There is the someone that is me.

Between yesterday and tomorrow,
There is more there is more than a day.

It is a hauntingly beautiful song, at least in my mind.  It will go on my CD, when I make it.  I must start writing these songs down so I don't forget any when the time comes.

I don't want to, but I must dance the Dance of the Wussburger.  I'm very sleepy and even though "Battlestar Galactica" was quite exciting, it didn't keep me from getting tired (there were two episodes plus a sort of "making of" half-hour show).  Although I didn't nod off while watching it, its "exciting" effects have worn off quite quickly.

In my CD player, in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day on Monday, I have King:  A Musical Testimony written by Richard Blackford and Maya Angelou with additional lyrics by Alistair Beaton.  I think it's quite good...although I understand it's been substantially rewritten since this recording was made in 1990.

Media Check:

In the theater: Racing Stripes

DVD: A collection of Superman cartoons, the Disney Tarzan, and disc four of the Looney Tunes Golden Collection Vol. 2.

Car CD Player: Soundtrack from the Disney Tarzan, and a trio of Disney Songs cds.

This is because of all the LADSITTING we've been doing.  Der Brucer and I have been substituting for the grandlads' daycare provider, and frankly I'm getting SICK OF IT!!!

The Tarzan score is endlessly played, if we're going to the store or whatever, because they both know all the words and sing along.  If we're watching the television, the set is tuned in to a toon channel, or to animated DVDs.  They even forced me to go into a MacDonalds for lunch the other day!  Those places are EVIL!!!   :P

I'm tired of the testing of limits that have been set, of being lied to about what their parents allow.  I'm tired of the hour-plus drive back, which is always later than we were planning because the lads' parents want to talk (and don't with each other).  And then having to cook dinner when we get home, because the food in family's house is inedible.

Re Racing Stripes, it's a cute film about a Zebra who wants to be a race horse.  The humans in the film don't hear a word that the animals say, but the animals talk a lot, generally using the voices of some well-known actors.  David Spade plays a horsefly, which seems appropriate.  Dustin Hoffman voices a Shetland Pony, which doesn't.  The outcome of the film is obvious almost from the first frame.

We took der B's older grandlad to see the film, because he hasn't had as much personal time with Grandpa, what with his being in school.  (The grandlad, not Grandpa.)  He enjoyed the film.  Me, I think der B owes me one.  Big time.

The pain and suffering continue next week, with MLKJr Day and the day after.  That day will be a lot less than fun, as der B has a doctor's appointment as well, and it will be my duty to keep the two lads under control while he's otherwise occupied.

Bleh.

It is past three-thirty in the morning here.  I am not a wussburger.  I'm just going to bed.

So there!

Good Morning!

Again, I really should be in bed by now...  I guess.. but until then...

In no particular order - CDs:

Movin' Out (OBCR)
Jane Monheit - "Come Dream With Me"
James Naughton - "It's About Time" - I finally gave this one a listen this past week... It seems Mr. Naughton is trying to channel Joe Williams on a few tracks.  Hmmm...
Kurt Elling - "This Time It's Love" - To my ears, Mr. Elling never really seems to hit the center of the pitch.  Maybe it's a jazz thing, but it makes him sound off-key.  Again, at least to my ears.  But I have a friend who is crazy about him, so I picked up a few discs.  Hmm...
Ben Folds Five - "Whatever and Ever Amen" - Still my favorite Ben Folds disc.
"The Songs of Robert Schumann - Vol. 2" - Hyperion Schumann Edition - Simon Keenlyside (love that last name!), baritone, and Graham Johnson, piano.
The Boy from Oz - (OBCR) I forgot Brad Anderson was in this show; he plays the "Trick".  -He was Lt. Cable at Arena Stage two years ago.  Great guy, and he's now in All Shook Up.
Renée Fleming and Bryn Terfel - "Under the Stars" - Finally listened to this one too this week... Hmm...
Randy Newman's Faust (Studio Recording)
Jerry Orbach - "Off Broadway" - In memoriam.
Jane Monheit - "In the Sun"
Das Barbecü (OCR)
Oscar Peterson - "The Gershwin Songbooks"
Two Gentlemen of Verona (OCR)
Charles Ives - "Concord Sonata" and selected Songs - Pierre-Laurent Aimard, piano; Susan Graham, mezzo-soprano
Bach - Partitas Nos. 1, 3 & 6 - Richard Goode, piano. Mr Goode is definitely in my top of 5 of favorite pianists.  Great artistry.

...And that's all so far for this week.  -I have to some music while I'm surfing the web.

Just watched THE VILLAGE. In a weird mood (like Adrian Brody). I will soon post a pic of me watching the village in my nigthdress (it's not exactly a nightgown), my hat - have not taken it off since coming home - and Curious George slippers. Wait for it...

DVD: last night - "Being There".  Wonderful movie and who needs Gump.
Cds:  "Call Off the Search" Katie Melua
          "Aces Back To Back" Bobby Darin
          "For You" Peter Brocklehurst

Video: "Dance Of the Vampires"  What can I say? Choreography was my favourite aspect I think. Laughing "with" and laughing "at" are different!

Well, while our esteemed BK continues to do the Bunny Hop - and, hopefully not vomitting on the ground - I shall be heading to bed...  It's late.  It's early.  It's time to get some sleep.

Goodnight.

hmm.... Methinks someone's iPod headphones are on a bit too tight.  And/or the volume is turned up a bit too high.
