LEISURE SUIT
« on: September 16, 2005, 12:11:32 AM »

Well, you've read the notes, you've read the notes at your leisure in your leisure suit, and now it is time for you to post until the cows come home - they're putting on their cow leisure suits right now, and then they'll be toddling on home.

DVD...I think I'll explore a little more of The Fly and its extras.  I also came across a documentary called Try To Remember:  The Fantastiks which is about The Fantastiks done around the time the show finally closed.

CD...I need to listen to After The Fair, produced by our very own BK.  And I need to have another listen of a Nickel Creek album our very own elmore sent me.

On the bed-stand...a book of long short stories by Fredric Brown called THE PICKLED PUNKS.

Good morning, all!  I overslept and got out of bed at 6 am, but I'm feeling very unawake after two cups of coffee and a nice bath.

DRJason, I, too, love "Night Letter" but are you aware it's "S.W.A.K." (Sealed With a Kiss)" or am I missing a joke?  It's very possible on my end; few circuits are working.  I think tonight my friend Matthew and I will see JUNEBUG featuring Miss Celia Weston. godmother to my godfather.  The rest of the weekend will be tied up with Toyland and Chicago Humanities Festival.

TOD:
  CD:  Susan Egan "Coffee House," Bernstein "Peter Pan," STAGES/TA
  DVD:  L'AUBERGE ESPAGNOLE (I think that's the title)
  VCR:  My fave!

Well Jinx is not my brother. My little brother Chris has his 50th birthday today. I did not grow up in the same family but we certainly have the same temperament.

I'm listening to AccuRadio right now. It's playing Tango Traguiqe from SLM.

We have no plans for this evening (I'm doing the laundry after work but after that, nothing). I'm seeing Lennon tomorrow evening, just in time since it's closing next Saturday.

We saw Beauty and the Beast last night. It was OK. I must say the show is TOO LONG. It's 2 and a half hours!!! There are some nice moments but after almost 12 years (it opened in April of 1994) it's beginning to show it's age. Most of the songs that were added for the stage version could be dropped or trimmed. We enjoyed ourselves and Anthony got to see which roles he could do if he was cast. He was thinking Le Fou before he saw the show but after last night we both agree he would probably have more fun and do more with Cogsworth. The guy playing Le Fou did a great job with the physical comedy but vocally he was weak. He's the understudy and it seems to me he didn't have a lot of rehearsal. Steve Blanchard, who played The Beast was excellent. I saw him in Johnny Guitar many, many months ago. I'm glad he's still working. I was also pleasantly surprised at the behavior of the many children in the audience. Based on the sounds before the lights went down I thought it might be a bit raucous but they were very attentive with very few disruptions.

Ah, well. I must get to work.

Later, gaters.

P.S. François, glad you liked the Karen Morrow clip. I'm a big fan. A dear friend of mine met her many years ago when they were both camp counselors in Superior, Wisconsin. I have never met her but my friend, Tom, always said wonderful things about Miss Morrow. From what I've heard, it's all true.

Any word on whether Two Gentlemen of Verona will transfer to a B'way house?  I would love to see it.

TOD:
dvd:
INSERTS - (netflix) Does anyone know the difference between the version which was released theatrically and the International release which is represented on the dvd?  
I saw this theatrically when it first came out and was bored to tears; now, it's interesting to see Bob Hoskins, thin, talking about building a freeway through L.A. (ring any bells?), opening drive throughs and named "Big Mac."  Dvd transfer is excellent.
And that previously mentioned L-O-N-G film, BEN-HUR, which is amazing to behold.  Those teeny-boppers on less popular sites are complaining constantly about this release, BUT, what I see is top notch; very cinematic, quite film-like and clear as a bell (one can actually see individual hairs on centurians' legs!)  So far, I'm up to the battle at sea sequence.  I haven't dipped into the silent version yet, but I know there is one significant difference in the galley scenes.

BK mentioned those great TV movies of the 1970's in his notes.  I think they called it the Tuesday Movie of the Week for quite a while.  IIRC, some of my favorite TV movies were part of that series, like The Last Child (with Van Heflin), Crowhaven Farm (with Hope Lange) and original Night Stalker (which I believe is being remade as a new series).  I got spoiled and rarely went to the movie theaters in those days, because what I saw in the theaters didn't necessarily live up to what the networks were creating (I won't say churning out, because the quality level was too high) week after week.

Gershon Veroba (thanks again, JMK, for recommending it)
Time-Life Greatest Hits of 1978 (alternating Earth Wind & Fire's "September" with Gershon Veroba's - great stretching music)
Epiphany - Chaka Khan

DtM: I haven't heard any chatter about TWO GENTLEMEN transferring. I didn't read any of the reviews, but I heard they weren't all that great. I loved the show, though, and really wish they had at least recorded it because Norm Lewis truly sounded fantastic. So did Renée Elise Goldsberry, who played Sylvia. If we had a recording of HER singing "Night Letter," I might have known that it was "Did you remember you have to say S.W.A.K." Jonelle Allen sounds like she's saying "S.W.A.T" on the cast recording. I thought it was just some kind of kinky reference. Now, thanks to DR Elmore, I know what the frell she was really saying!

Re. Nickel Creek: I went to undergrad school with Chris Thile - the lead singer/mandolin player for Nickel Creek. He's a sweet guy and an AMAZING musician. He had a Grammy at age 12 and taught himself violin in 6 months when we were in school together. His dad, Scott, is/was the instrument technician at my alma mater. Very nice folks - a good family.

I believe they're scheduled to play the new Nokia Theatre on 44th & B'way on Oct. 7. I'd love to see him again...and they're a great group.

I bolted out of bed, into my walking shorts, and headed out for my walk before the humidity got too oppressive. Glad I did it. I feel better about myself.
