So, Andy talked and did Q&As for 20 minutes or so before the movie. Janet Maslin moderated, as she frequently does there, and she's good at it except when the discussion turns technical (about film), at which point she needs to close her pie hole and leave it to those who know things -- like Robert Harris, who sadly did NOT join yesterday. That was disappointing, but Andy was in a great mood and he's a joy to listen to. I think he hadn't seen the movie in a long time, and he was obviously having a very good time watching and reacting to it throughout. It was a fine afternoon.

At this point I'm inclined to wager that "The Egg" is not vixmom's favorite song in 1776.

Monday morning greetings!  As Dolly Levi says, I have decided to rejoin the human race.  Today we need to shop for our granddaughters’ birthdays.  There’s a dual party planned for this coming Saturday - Minnie Mouse themed, of course.

Welcome back!!  I can't say the human race is any better than it was when you began your hiatus, but the folks here are worthy.

I, for one, will NOT be celebrating National Egg Day.


DR Vixmom, I’m so sorry!  I also had some tummy trouble, but I blame the antibiotic that I finished yesterday.

Monday is here.  We are expecting thunderstorms at some point during the day.  Oh, joy!

There are many, many...MANY things I need to do around the house.

So much time and so little gets done.  THAT is retirement, I guess.

I am woefully behind on cataloguing my movie and music collections (Blu-rays and CDs, that is).  This is a task I must get to soon as it is critical for keeping track of what I have as well as what I wish to let go.

Collecting is a feverish passion until you get to a point where you cannot possibly keep up with it!  I won't throw anything away, but may give some of it away at some point.

The town of Embarrass used to have a factory that manufactured coins. It was the Embarrass Mint.

Well, Michael O'Flaherty, Goodspeed's two-faced asshole music director at the time, heard me and dragged out out into the hall to yell at me for being disrespectful to the director. Following that ugly scene, I went outside and sat down in the middle of the road, praying a car would come by and hit me. O still had a week at Goodspeed, and I no longer wanted to be there. After sitting there for maybe 30 minutes, I got up, went back to my room to ponder the situation.




Larry, I had no idea you'd ever been to that point in your life.  It's great that you found your way out of it.

That is one HELL of a story about Goodspeed, DR Elmore!

Indeed.

It's a terrible show! There are a couple of good songs, but the book is all over the place, there's only one killing which is bad for a thriller, and the leading lady stretches credulity to the point where it screams. I also cringe every time Gwen Verdon speaks because her British accent is pathetic
I cannot believe all the Tonys it won. I think the only atmosphere was in Reuben Ter-Arutinian's gothic, spooky sets.

The composer, Alber Hague, came to the show and tod me he loved my orchestration. I think he was the only one!

I did include a bit about learning from someone who knows what he is talking about rather than podcasters and YouTubers who don't know anything.

I suspect this was the change you needed to make without insulting anyone.
