Well, back to some tootling - how the $%&# do you play a high Eb?

Well, first you have to get Eb high.  I suggest you pass him some locally grown Maui-wowie.

While In New York I Gained Back the Weight I Lost in Roumania - that's the title of my next novel.

Yes, Danise, I have Microsoft Word on my Apple.

Rehearsal was fun, we hired the lighting designer, and then had to make a really difficult decision about our set designer, whom we let go.  He's very, very talented, and I've known him for years and really like him, but it was becoming clear to everyone that he was having problems figuring out the complexities of doing this play in the space we're in - which I totally understand.  We were just all getting concerned that since we had yet to see or hear any ideas, and since he can't build the set (has to have others build it), it just seemed to be the best decision to find someone who knows and understands the space we're in, and who can build and paint the set him or herself.  Even sitting with our lighting designer and explaining the needs of the play, HE came up with some excellent suggestions just because he knows the space so well.

Ooohhhh...

Aaaaaahhhh....

*Actually, when I saw Himanshu Malik listed in the credits, I figured that that was the Indian version of "John Abraham".

;)



LOL! But John Abraham is Indian...actually he is half Indian and half Iranian, but with a Christian name (as he puts it) rather then a Hindu or Muslim name.

Hilarious episodes of both MY NAME IS EARL and especially THE OFFICE tonight. Really enjoyed seeing both of these live.

Enjoyed the Sidney Lumet interview although he was very nice about all of the actors and films he ever worked with and on except THE FUGITIVE KIND and Anna Magnani.

First off, I've never seen that movie. I saw the TV-version of ORPHEUS DESCENDING with Vanessa Redgrave some years ago, but have never seen that film.

I had read that the movie didn't go smoothly because Magnani had the hots for Brando, and he wasn't interested in her. (Did Williams write that in MEMOIRS?) Lumet said she just wouldn't rehearse because English gave her such trouble and she was self-conscious about speaking it.

Anyway, because he's had such a long career filled with memorable films and also has worked in theater and live TV, the show should have been at least twice as long as it was. Great films had to be covered in a couple of sentences, and that was frustrating.

Christopher Meloni had a memorable performance tonight on SVU. Not much of a crime story this week. Much more character driven than the other LAW & ORDER shows, and while the case itself wasn't all that fascinating, exploring his demons with him definitely was.

I also recorded THE CASINO MURDER CASE off TCM this afternoon. This is a Philo Vance murder mystery I've never seen, so I hope to get to that tomorrow, too.

I don't comment a lot of what I see on TV, but I have to agree that it was a fascinating character study of Christopher Meloni's role. I am beginning to feel that Law and Order: SVU is the best written and best acted of all the shows.

I agree with you, DR Michael S. Rather than simply a clone of the original, the show really has carved out its own niche and is usually features a gripping story with endings that haunt long after the program has ended.

Certainly now is my favorite, and for the past two weeks has been NBC's highest rated show.

Will meet everyone back here tomorrow.

Not really satire but as DR Jose (I think) mentioned Alan Sherman -

Ben Colder aka Sheb Wooley
Homer & Jethro
Al Yankovic

Some great Parodies of popular songs.

New notes in a mere twenty minutes.  Until then, I shall be taking a hot shower to wash away the tensions I am feeling.
