FLUFF STRANDS
« on: September 10, 2005, 12:10:21 AM »

Well, you've read the notes, you are on the prowl for FLUFF STRANDS, and now it is time for you to post until the cows come home - they, too, are on the prowl for FLUFF STRANDS and won't come home until they locate some or at least find out what in HELL they are.

I think MBarnum may have interviewed Fluff Strands. He made some great movies in the early 50's.

"The Card" was flop musical.  I saw it in its first week. Jim Dale was great. I think the score is better than many others too.

And now - Dino at the piano.

I think I shall stay up until one or so, just to get in some posts, since I'll be gone most of the day today.

I also like the score of "The Good Companions" but did not get to see it.

Yes, he was in some pictures with Sonny Tufts.

Well, tonight was opening night of CHARLEYíS AUNT.  There is nothing like plying your opening night house with food and wine before the show, to get them in the mood for a comedy.  Thanks to my son, Jedís, delivery; the audience started chuckling from his opening lines, and they didnít stop laughing until two (+) hours later.  A great start to the run (sorry Jrand), but letís hope we can keep it going.

I think "Fluff Strands" was the code name for a naval exercise in the Pacific. Of course that may have been a navel exercise in the Mediterranean.

Congrats, TCB. That is a funny show. I bought the script when I was prepping for "Where's Charley?" and aside from some characters being combined, it is very much the same except with music, of course.

I haven't vacated just yet.  I had to read the Notes before I started reading today's posts. :)

That's what fluff strands are! The lint from one's navel. I always tell TPunk I am saving mine to make her a sweater in a few years.

I saw a play in London called THE VILLAIN'S OPERA by Nick Dear which was a version of The Beggar's Opera set in London's current East End.  The Lovely Wife and I loved it.  But it was playing to half houses and I don't think either the critics or London audiences enjoyed it as much as we did.

There is a play I read by Peter Shaffer called Gift of the Gorgon that's one of the best plays I've read in the last dozen years.  But after it's initial run, I've not see a hide nor hair of a production.

Pogue, our Buccos and Reds met tonight, and my squad came out on top. Unfortunately, a recent swoon has made the Pirates one of the NL's worst teams and we fired our manager. Your Redlegs have actually made some improvements in the second half, and the crime of it is if they were in the NL West with the Dodgers, they would be like, 3 games out of first place in that miserable division.

I have a link to the review in the last of the posts from yesterday's posts.  It's the Home Theater Forum - but the direct link is in the posts from yesterday - just check the last page.  You will love this fellow's interesting command of language.

TOD: I really liked JAMES JOYCE'S THE DEAD, but I shall never even hear its music again, as there is no cast album.

Our very own BK produced Emily Skinner's solo album and at least one song from the show was recorded!  It's not the whole score, but it's something. :)

"Ballyshannon."  That's the song.

There was a good song that Walken sang called "Our Three Graces," and his casual style suited  it quite well.

Thank you, Tom(s) and George.  Since my son is probably still out celebrating his triumph this evening, rather than posting at HHW, I guess I will head off to bed.  I have MY FAIR LADY rehearsal at 10 a.m.
