Hmmm... 12 hours from now my plane will be landing in Charlotte, NC... Hmmm...  Which means 10 and a half hours from now my plan will be departing from La Guardia...  Hmm...  Which means 8 hours from now I need to be on the M60 bus to get to La Guardia...  Hmm... Which means I need to be up in at least six hours in order to get ready for my trip - I have to pack (but that should be easy, just two days)... Hmm... Which means...

Goodnight.

Second night was better - not GOOD, better.

And as for the cue card suggestion.  Sounds good, since out into the audience is where this particular actor is looking most of the time anyway.  He stopped to acknowledge the laughter for one of his lines tonight with a nod and a smile.

Justifiable homicide, I'm thinking.  Only five more performances!

Watching THE FOUNTAINHEAD....and as the late Virginia Mayo said to Patricia Neal as they left a preview screening of the picture:

"Oh my, weren't you bad!"  

Neal has said it was only recently that she realized it might NOT have been a compliment!

Sweet lord, how does someone that amateurish get cast? I know its hard to find good people, but that is ridiculous and I'm sorry to hear about it.

Nice to have Rodzinski back before a formal bitch-slapping took place.

Question for BK: How is it you are Member Number 12 on your own site? How did 11 people get here before you did?

I don't remember exactly how it happened, other than we were doing a lot of beta testing before I even looked at the site.

Checked it out. Cool site. Cool excerpt. I hadn't thought about Free Cell in a while.
I had no difficulty reading the text over the imaged background. Some might, but I did not.

Pat Boone has a later version of "Kangaroo".

"Greenfields" was one of my father's favourite songs.
"Frogg" was a hit here too.
I have a best of Cd and a Taiwanese pressed Green vinyl recording of "At your Requests - The Brothers four Favorites -2"

It is nearly midnight and I still have not gotten any of those Hammer movies watched  :(

I hope the woman who bore me appreciates that I have been slaving away to make her weeklong stay here a pleasant one. I don't clean the home environment for just anyone...in fact I don't usually clean the home environment until I have to hack a trial through the dust bunnies to get to the kitchen.

I just read a "review" of The Fly over at that inane DVD site that I loathe.  Here is one of my favorite excerpts:

"Black specs still pop up every so often and there is quite a bit of fluff strands that mark the picture once and a while"

FLUFF STRANDS?  FLUFF STRANDS?  And none of the idiots there ask, WHAT ARE FLUFF STRANDS?  And, of course, no one brings up "one and a while"

This is what passes for a "review" on the Internet.  This incompetent, ridiculous, unreadable pathetic tripe.  And what is the reaction to this "review"?  "Awesome review!"

I'll post the complete link momentarily, so you can revel in the drivel yourself.

I bet Pat denuded all the Australian culture right out of that song.

"Green Leaves of Summer" is another gem by the BroFour.

"Fluff strands" is so wrong on a number of levels.

Yep. "The Alamo" soundtrack included their version.
The first soundtrack from a non musical that I ever bought.
I've never seen the film nor have I ever been a fan of John Wayne.

Okay, the first paragraph of that is so poorly written, it seems to be a non-English-speaking person with no grasp of the language. I could not conclude the piece.

There was a very non politically correct (even in 1960) follow up (parady) of "Kangaroo"  here. I'll try and find my copy and record it for you Rodzinski. It was not allowed to be played on radio.

But first I'll need to clean the fluff strands from the record.
