AT ONE WITH ONE
« on: November 26, 2005, 12:28:46 AM »

Well, you've read the notes, you are at one with the notes, whilst I am at one with one, and now it is time for you to post until the cows come home - they're currently playing their Lawrence Welk records and then they promise to come right home.

Okay, so they didn't write them(with the exception of S. Gaillard.)  I misread the question.  This is what happens when I wake up this early and see a relatively blank canvas. But the list is revealing of my tastes nonetheless.

To briefly answer the question asked:  "Bob White", by Johnny Mercer.

Good morning, all!  Because yesterday was a Friday which felt like Sunday, I have no idea what day today is.  All I know is I'm seeing SPAMALOT and that's good enough for me.

As for the TOD, I have no answers at the moment beyond Jacques Brel and Gordon Lightfoot:
Fils de
Marieke
Le Dernier Repas
Le Gaz
If You Could Read My Mind
Song for a Winter's Night

Singer/songwriters I like:
Paul Simon in his Garfunkle mode
Don McLean
Janis Ian
Laura Nyro
Cat Stevens

Most people think of Jimmy Webb as being just a songwriter, but he's sung a fair share of his songs as well.

The Moon's a Harsh Mistress.

A great big beautiful morning we've got ourselves here, and it's even going to warm up just a touch during the day, too. Might go for a little walk later.

Didn't listen to him when he was hot but now I do have an appreciation for Paul Simon's early works. Also like some of Rod McKeun's songs.

I liked some of Barbra's music for A STAR IS BORN, the only thing positive I can say about that awful production.

Looking forward today to THE POLAR EXPRESS on DVD. I am also planning to watch one of the documentaries on the KING KONG set but haven't decided which one as yet.

And, of course, there's the ever-present SPANGLISH.

Thanks for that link to the Barbra Archives, DR td. I enjoyed reading some of the backstage information about the production of MY NAME IS BARBRA and COLOR ME BARBRA and BELLE OF 14th STREET,

I think it's funny that there is almost no mention of the very poor ratings and critical brickbats that BELLE generated after the previous very successful one-woman shows.

Good morning all!

Which concert are you talking about, DR George?

DR Michael S, I think I have all of MBís releases that are compatible with our DVD players.

Iím still waiting for the:

Michael Ball - Alone Together / Live at the Donmar  

DVD I ordered at Deep Discount DVD, thanks to DR Elmore telling me about it.  

I did get a shipment yesterday.  LOST, AMERICAN GOTHIC and CHRISTMAS IN CONNECTICUT  are all mine!

I also have something called BLUSHING BLOOPERS.  Iím not sure how much I will enjoy that one but it stated it had both STAR TREK and Errol Flynn bloopers and it was only five bucks.

In case of my sudden mysterious death and/or disappearance department:  I awoke this morning to a "verrry interresting" email from the Church of $cientology's front group CCHR about my Farmer article (the CCHR owns the site that has the most flagrant disinformation about Farmer out there).  They are nicely (at least at this point) requesting "all documentation" behind my article so that they can "update their records."  I think not.   ;)  But if I disappear, you will know that Xenu and his (its?) acolytes are behind it.

Macchus:  the Oregonian had a very interesting interview this morning with Jack Klugman's son, who lives in a Portland suburb and has written a play that Jack will be doing.   He is also editing Jack's book about Tony Randall.

Laura Nyro department:  I love Laura, too.  One of my fondest memories from my lounge piano days was one night when a woman had been listening to me quite intently and I asked her if she had any requests.  She said, "Well a good friend of mine just died this week.   I used to go to summer camp with her and she later became quite famous, but I bet you've never heard of her and don't know any of her songs."  Well I knew instantly she was talking about Miss Laura, and told her so, which amazed her, and I then launched into a long medley of lesser-known Nyro masterpieces like "Captain St. Lucifer" and "Blackpatch."  The woman was in tears (hopefully in a good way, not because of my playing, LOL).  It touched me very deeply.
