I FELL ON MY ASS
« on: March 29, 2006, 12:04:06 AM »

Well, you've read the notes, you know who fell on their ass and why, and now it is time for you to post until the cows come home - they just fell on their collective asses laughing about how you-know-who fell on his.

I could always set up antoher photobucket account...

You could do that.  But also, if you find a picture on the internet that you want to use, you can right click (on a PC, I don't know about Macs) and save it somewhere on your computer.  Then when you reply to or quote a message (not in the "Quick-Reply" box at the bottom of a page), just above the "Post - Preview - Reset Form" buttons is a box that's labeled "Attach:" and a "Browse..." button.  Click "Browse" and find the picture file that you've saved, click on that file, then click "Open" and then "Post" your message.  HOWEVER you can't preview with the picture.  You can preview the text all you want but only "Attach" the picture when you're ready to "Post."  The thing that you can't do is make the picture move, like you can with a linked picture from another website.  Make sense?? :)

General comment - which I guess could be rephrased into a question!

Australians and Brits consider the use of the word "Ass" by Americans as a touch "precious". Does the word have a legitimacy in it's use as a synonym for arse or is it a colloquilism only?

Do Canadians use the term in the same way?

Good morning, all!  DRTomovoz, I hope this will help you out:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arse

Today will be my first day back to the recording office, Babes, and Cinderella since Sunday.  We have now begun work on another Victor Herbert show, a version of Cinderella titled THE LADY OF THE SLIPPER, which Charles Dillinghman produced in 1912 with Elsie Janis, and Montgomery & Stone.  I'm trying to learn what I can now about the 1902 WIZARD OF OZ production since Montgomery & Stone became stars playing the Tin Woodman and the Scarecrow, and a lot of their 1912 material has references to Oz.  I've read the wonderful book OZ BEFORE THE RAINBOW several times, but I need to learn more about the score. Oy!

Yesterday, after work, I went out and bought new work clothes, as the pants and shoes I've been buying so desperately needed replacing.

Today, I will show up at work wearing new pants, and new shoes, and a new t-shirt, and even new boxers!  Why, I shall practically feel like a new man!

But I intend to keep der Brucer, in spite of those feelings.

I rarely change my clocks, but have been known to do so when I get sick and tired of the design.

I don't thrown away the old clocks, however.  I keep them safely stored away in the basement.  (This is what is known as saving face.)

The continent of Europe changed clocks for Daylight Saving this past Saturday, March 25th. We, in New York, change our clocks on Saturday, April 1st.

One method of making slippery walking surfaces less slippery is to sprinkle kitty litter on them.

I came by this information from some of my customers at the store.

There is no data, however, on whether the fresh-scent varieties of litter work better than the el cheapo kind.

(Feel better soon, esteemed BK.)

Beautiful day here, perfect spring weather with clear blue skies and temperatures in the low 70s. Glorious to be alive! Hope to have a walk later today.

DR George, I read many reviews of THE ARISTOCRATS when it came out, and they were all mixed. It's a set up for a host of comedians to complete a joke any way they like and most of them make it the filthiest joke they can. It didn't sound appealing to me when I read the reviews, but I'll be interested in your take on it.

Well, tonight is the first time that I have FOUR (4) shows that I watch and greatly enjoy on at exactly the same time.

At 9 p.m. tonight I have LOST (ABC), LAW & ORDER (NBC), VERONICA MARS (UPN), and the AMERICAN IDOL results show (Fox).

LOST I will watch "live" with the over-the-air high definition signal. My DVR can record L&O and VERONICA MARS simultaneously. The VCR in the bedroom will record the 30 minute IDOL results show.

Whew!

Want to remind folks again that CBS has moved OUT OF PRACTICE and COURTING ALEX to 8-9 p.m. If you like either of these shows at all, you might want to remind yourself to catch them. If the ratings don't improve from last week's fourth place finish in the time slot, the shows will be long gone by fall.

Did anyone watch the new sitcom TEACHERS last night? I recorded it and will likely get to it today at some point. It's on NBC.

Matt H. one nice feature of TIVO, it catches the changes for us.

Las night we watched the funny opening of THE CLOSER (rerun for us so we turned it off) on TNTís high definition station.   We didnít know TNT had an HD channel until yesterday.

Sorry for not posting last night, but I was having internet connection issues - the signal was being very wonky last night.  In any case...

Third preview went well.  And I felt very comfortable last night too - and we had a totally new orchestration for one song too!  Nothing like a group of musicians collectively sight-reading.  :)

The Lovely Wife and I started watching the Aristocrats while we were eating dinner  one night.  Very quickly into it we realize this was going to be gross for dinner-time fare and never went back to it.  I was very curious about the film...and get even get into gross upon occasion, but there was just something about this that I felt was going no where and after a couple comedians (Carlin, I think) had told the really foul, gross versions, I just didn't see how this could build anywhere that would actually be funny.  One of these days, I might return to it...but a warning!  This is not for the squeamish.

BK, I LOVE NO WAY TO TREAT A LADY.  But I'm just as crazy for the Kimmel-produced version of the musical No Way To Treat A Lady as well.  Very clever and funny musical.

Now that I have been to NY I should watch NO WAY TO TREAT A LADY again.  In fact I was thinking that very thought yesterday (not the NY part, just was in the mood to see the movie).

Yes, my DVR does that, too. Of course, not everyone is fortunate enough to have these devices hence my alert.

That opening of THE CLOSER was priceless (G.W. Bailey was always one of the only bright lights in those awful POLICE ACADEMY movies, so he's been a favorite for a long time.)

Not only are TNT's broadcasts in HD, but on older LAW & ORDER episodes produced before they were filmed in high definition, they have upconverted the film, and it honestly looks as good as the more recent HD broadcasts. Amazing what technology can achieve now!

I see that those sets of classic films by Marlene Dietrich, Mae West, and Carole Lombard are coming out next week, each priced less than $20 for the set! Remarkable bargains and highly recommended!

THE NUN'S STORY, one of my all-time favorites, also comes out next week on DVD. I have watched my full frame laserdisc for many years, so I am chomping at the bit to actually get this mastered in its proper aspect ratio and enhanced for widescreened TVs.

Add BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN and LIZA WITH A 'Z' to the mix, and there's a terrific amount of  great items being released next week. (And I didn't even mention MONA LISA, SHOES OF THE FISHERMAN, NARNIA, etc.)

Since I just watched "American Idol" via the DVR...

Lisa - ugh.
Ace - Stop whining!  *However, his wrap up clip from the rehearsal sounded much better.
Bucky - Better than last week, but still...
Chris - It would be great if he did end up pulling "My Heart Will Go On" out of his sleeve. ;)
Kelly - Boring.
Taylor - Just OK.
Katharine - "Best vocal of the night" - hmm.. ??? :-\
Paris - I liked it, I guess.
Mandisa - Sort of too "easy" for her tonight/last night.

I suspect the TNT HD station is a recent addition for us, hard to imagine I missed it but then anything is possible.

I mistakenly thought company was arriving on Friday instead of Saturday.  Gives me an extra day to get over whatever I have.
