Well, you've read the notes, the notes were sort of, and now it is time for you to post until the sort of cows come home.

Topic of the Day:  I don't know many Peggy Lee songs, but I like Is That All There Is? and Fever.

Today is going to be a day.  I agreed to help my sister with some things around her house like moving couches up and down stairs, moving or restacking wood, installing a ceiling fan, things like that.

:P is what I say...but I got talked into it, so I'll go.

Peggy is now singing Losing My Mind.  It's very nice save for the Bacharach-like arrangement - and even that is weirdly fun.  I love the song Where Did They Go, too.  The purists hate these later Capitol albums and let me tell you what I think of the purists.

I had to laugh on Facebook.  This guy bragged that in their reading series (staged concerts) they were going to use the full licensed orchestrations for The Most Happy Fella.  So I Googled.  If you can believe it, the original orchestration for Happy Fella had thirty-seven musicians.  So I posted that I thought it was great we were going to finally hear those great orchestrations again by the full band.  He quickly responded that that's why he said "licensed version."  I looked that up - it's for about twenty players.  He then told me to stop raining on his parade.  I told him I'd let him know when I was raining on his parade.  I've been very good about being silent with this guy's posts - I know him from a long time ago - don't want to say why - and he's one of the many people to whom I suggested Li'l Abner with me directing.  Of course, like all the others, he took the suggestion and not me - but I didn't care because it was after my production.  But I wrote him and told him I would never understand why people do this kind of thing.  He fumfered around and I let it go.

Yesterday like Elmoore I also came on and Thursday thread was still up and did not have the time to post my film choice.

So with all the other excellent choices, my fav is:

Colossus: The Forbin Project (1969)

This is the first time Eric Braeden used this name as his stage name.
Paul Frees was the voice of Colossus

I had a dream last night that was no doubt inspired by DR elmore's adventures with Annabelle and Thatch.   I had somehow adopted a dog and two kittens.  The people from the adoption center were in my apartment too.  I suddenly remembered that you have to have kitty litter for kittens and figured I'd better rush out and get some.

I just woke from a nightmare.  I was in charge of a recording of Oklahoma! and the producer, whose duplicity is amazing, was a former acquaintance I do not trust at all.  I had discovered after learning that my friend Tim was playing Judd in "Pore Judd is Daid" and another singer was recording "Lonely Room" that this producer, with no authority, had cast each song separately.  I was trying to clean up this mess and the producer had conveniently made himself unavailable.

I posted this on FB late last night, and the comments are still coming in.

The world is in BIG trouble.

My wife went to the grocery store today; paid with her ATM card.

She's writing the transaction into her check register, and the clerk at the register, a guy in his early 20s, asks her what that was.

He'd never seen a check register before.

Where do these people come from?

Annabelle and Thatch were happy when I told them this.  When last seen, Thatch was in the litter box trying desperately to bury one of Annabelle's more stinky messes.

I have one too.  A former co-worker, who had been in the military and lived all over the world, did not know what a postal service mailbox was.  She said that if she needed to mail something she took it to the post office.

I remember a relative had been scared that my nephew at age 11 or 12 didn't know how to use her rotary phone until she showed him.  But he really had never seen a rotary phone before, being born in 1988.

TCB, I'm sorry  you were upset by that dream.  It sounds like you were trying to make everyone feel better, while this person preferred chaos.  But I guess Dream-o-matic may be a better arbiter.   

On the bright side, if there is one, you must have made BK happy by telling it in so many posts!

And a quick one it must be, as I need to get ready to leave for a rehearsal and run-through of tomorrow’s little cabaret.

You know everyone hates you.

That is the first sentence of the third volume of my memoirs.

The Dream-O-Matic 6000 says that DR TCB's dream shows that he feels theatre is a group effort and does not depend on any one individual to accomplish its goals.  Although he feels at ease when he is charge, he also appreciates being a member of the cast. The jarring cast member and his comments tells us that DR TCB will speak up when it is for the good of the show, but that he remains silent when it comes to personality conflicts...USUALLY.

Thanks to DR GINNY for sending me the Playbills - I feel as if I had spent a week on Broadway.
