Well we have a tornado watch. Not a biggie, but it feels like something might happen weather wise.

Well, I am full of shrimp etouffe.  That was the first time I've ever made it. I used an Emeril recipe. I made it a little less hot than I've had it in New Orleans by using Chef Tom's cajun spice instead of cayenne pepper. I must say it tasted delicious.  Glad I have enough left to have more tomorrow

In fifth or sixth grade in elementary school, we had a field trip to a newspaper company (press factory) and  learned how newspapers are printed. That was fascinating to me and I still remember the  smell of ink which was very strong but I liked.

Trivia question provides many tantalizing avenues....but dead ends, they turn out to be....for me.

DRJOSE-I love the SCOUNDRELS cast album.  

MR BK - you'd best tell Bark Clackbore to clean the picture cache because we expect MANY MANY photographic depictions of the HHW New York City Fall 2005 Gathering!

I shall now be on my way to the birthday bash.  I had a really intriguing meeting this afternoon, about which more later, although NOT if we don't get some postin' goin' on.  Let me have some reading matter when I return.

In other news, I got the new Hitchcock DVD set today, still a couple of weeks away from its release.

I vaguely remember a couple of field trips when my family lived in Germany (when I was in kindergarten and first grade), but I can't remember if I had any field trips when we moved to the States.  I have been on some choir trips, but I wouldn't consider those the same thing.  

Right now, I'm watching a tape of Wednesday's season premiere episode of "Lost."  I didn't get home in time to watch it, so I've borrowed my niece's copy. :)

Thank you for the support, DR Jose!  ;D


We're going to have 90 or over for highs the next two days if the weather people know their business.

Well, as I mentioned this morning, I did synch up the original DVD release of BEN-HUR with the new deluxe edition on two separate players and watched them back and forth for awhile tonight. I have a couple of observations:

1. The old release was definitely cropped on the sides and not the entire 2.76:1 aspect ratio of the original film. The new DVD release seems to contain the entire image.

2. The new release is brighter and does have sharper focus. THough bright colors like red and green and blue seem to be equally strong and saturated on both releases, the flesh tones on the new release are WORLDS better than on the original release. For me, that is the biggest improvement in the Technicolor hues in this remastering.

3. I did not hear much difference in the sound on the two releases. In fact, it wouldn't surprise me if the Dolby Digital tracks were identical on both releases though I had read other reviews that claim major improvements from the old release to the new. I didn't hear it, but then I was just much more fascinated in comparing the screen images from one to the other.

And I think the new bas relief-like motif on the packaging is super cool. I know that has nothing to do with the contents inside, but the package just looks so much classier than the earlier release.

I'm really glad I followed DR's advice here and took the plunge for the new edition.

Once I had satisfied myself as to the superiority of the new BEN-HUR's look, I settled in and watched the entire first half again. (Just saw this a few nights ago on the old edition, though I admittedly did skip some sections then. I didn't skip anything tonight.)

I would love to have seen the Oscar vote totals from that year for Best Actor. Hard for me to believe that Jimmy Stewart in ANATOMY OF A MURDER lost by much (though Jack Lemmon may have been the second place vote getter; I tend to think the more dramatic performance of Stewart would have gotten more votes than Lemmon's hilarious antics in SOME LIKE IT HOT.)

I also DVRed COLD CASE tonight and watched it after I finished the first half of BEN-HUR. Always an entertaining show, and this is one with the answers they were seeking hiding in plain sight, and I always like those kinds of stories.

I stuck in THE BOSTONIANS into the DVD player to set it up for tomorrow, and a few seconds of the movie started playing before I marked my place to start there tomorrow.

The transfer looked terrible - brownish, very soft, and rather ugly looking to be honest.

Now, to be fair, I only saw maybe 10 seconds of it, but I'm not encouraged about watching it tomorrow. I think it may have been an old videotape master used for this transfer. It really did not look very good.

The Greek called me today. In the conversation, El Greco proceeded to tell me about two people with whom there had been some making out. Usually I'd have been a little upset. Jealous, even. Honestly, tonight I wasn't. I really didn't even feel like talking to the Greek at all.

And that's my story for tonight.

Stay cool DRMATTH....boy, boy - crazy boy.

Warm here but NOT the 90's and thunderstorms predicted for Sunday and Monday.

Sunday is the day when we close up the theatre for the season, hopefully we did enough during the ANGELS strike that there isn't too much left to do.  Then of course the BORED MEETING....followed by another meeting of an ad hoc committee.

I have decided not to direct DEATH BY CHOCOLATE because they will be holding the useless and time consuming Children's Workshop at the same time.....on the same stage.  I don't like MOVING everything off my set, if it's even built - until three days before I open and then try to do a show.

No - not this time.  Let one of the SUPPORTERS of the Children's Workshop direct the show.  Of course none of them will....they barely even show up to sell tickets for the damn thing.

Five pages?  Five pages?  Skammen.  I am nasueous.  No reading matter at all.  And Monday we'll hear the usual, oh, I was here, I was there, I was everywhere but home, sweet, home.  I shall now write the notes, which will go up whenever I get around to finishing them.  Phut, I say, and phut I say again.
