I never did get back to Garbo's ROMANCE. There is only about 15 minutes left, but I guess I owe it to my research to see it to the end.

Back from auditions, which were very odd, and which I'll tell you all about in the notes.  As Pogue said, dinner at Bird's was really great.  Great food, great waitress, great babes, and, most of all, great food, great waitress, and great babes.  I had their 1/2 chicken (all white meat) with various and sundried dipping sauces - yummilicious.  And their onion rings instantly entered the pantheon of great onion rings.  We also had a very nice German Chocolate cake for dessert.

JMK:  Mr. Goldman would, of course, be flattered.

I got three count them three LPs - a cover version of She Loves Me by Frank Chacksfield, a cover version of How To Succeed by Ray Ellis, and the soundtrack to Two For The Seesaw by Andre Previn.  I had the latter and transferred it to CD, but it was a very noisy LP - this copy looks much mintier.

Cyrkle had "Turn Down Day" #16 in 1966. "I Wish You Could Be Here" #70 1967 is also a pleasant song. (Another Paul Simon & Bruce Woodley song).

I was going to post a Page 8 Dance, but my photo reduction program doesn't want to work tonight, and the pic is too big without reducing it.

Maybe tomorrow sometime!

The Chacksfield is lovely. I transferred it to CD a few years back. I play it quite often.

Past midnight on my coast, so I will say good night.

Hope everyone enjoys what's left of his day.

Yes, Tomovoz, you beat me to it. "Turn Down Day" by the Cyrkle got a lot of airplay on Chicagoland oldies stations:
"It's a turn down day, nothing on my mind.
It's a turn down day, and I dig it."

The question for BK is, do you type in "Well, Dear Readers" newly each day, or is it set in a template, always there for you?
It is slightly more impressive if you actually have typed it each day for all these years.

"Turn Down Day" was covered here by pop star Normie Rowe who was to eventually become Australia's Jean Valjean. Don't you love such trivia.

Websites I frequent, besides this one:

Some sports sites, aprilwinchell.com (she is Paul Winchell's daughter and is occasionally amusing), slate.com, straightdope.com, imdb, Pittsburgh postgazette, indianapolis star, weirdomusic (where I find some great free downloads), WMKV (which Pogue turned me on to), metacritic.com (a good distillation of all critics reviews on particular films)...

I saw NORMIE ROWE. Sally Field has never been better! And Ron Leibman was quite good in a supporting role.

I listened to Stages/Together Again on the way to the lake today and absolutely loved it, even more than I thought I would. It made for a very delightful drive.

Don't have time to really stay and chat but I wanted to let you all know that elmore was not bluffing and I have not given up on HHW.  ;D

I am thinking about getting a new laptop after all the trouble mine has given me. If I do I am going Mac. We'll see. My big news of the last week was my Acting 1 professor pulled me aside after class and asked me if i wanted to be in Sweeney Todd  because they had a couple of chorus members drop. (She is playing Mrs. Lovett.) I of course jumped at the opportunity. I didn't even have to audition, they just went on my prof's word. (She hasn't even really seen me sing or act yet so it has me curious as to why she asked me.) It's at the Muncie Civic Theatre. (I've never actually seen any shows there.) The director is in visiting from LA. His name is Dimitri Toscas and he works with the Falcon Theatre out there if anyone is familiar with him. From what I can gather, he does a lot of children's shows with Falcon, but I could be wrong.

I believe Biquet, err, I mean BK mentioned he's typed "Eh bien, chers lecteurs" each and every time! Yep!

Yes, as I said in the notes, for whatever reason I type Well, dear readers anew each and every evening.

I love trivia, but I don't think trivia loves me!!

AND what's wrong with Sally Field, may I ask?
Everyone has to love the Flying Nun! ("That means you love me!!") ;)

Another late-night ninety minute lull.  And do you know why?  Because we are infested with WUSSBURGERS.  Not only WUSSBURGERS, but WUSSBURGERS WITH CHEESE.

No wussburger here!  Simply had to catch up with the multitude of posts.
