…and this actually happened a couple of different times…
But first, at the Paley Center during the Q&A with Sheldon Harnick, the moderator kept speaking in shorthand, or apologizing when he didn’t because “we all know about the aborted She Loves Me film that was to star Julie Andrews” or saying things like “I’m going to tell you about the lyric changes in the TV version of She Loves Me so you’re not distracted agonizing over them when they happen.”
And then the following day at the park, when we played a game that somehow managed to get two people - NEITHER OF WHOM WERE ME - to submit “Paul Geminagni” as a celebrity name and I could get Reese to guess “Kevin Kline” in our game of celebrity by charading what it might look like to have sex with a young Patti LuPone….
what is your preferred format for these things?
I categorized cast recordings as “Show Tunes,” soundtracks as “Soundtracks,” and other recordings (such as cabaret singers’ albums or concept albums featuring that kind of music) as “Vocals.”
Under composer I list only the composer (not the lyricist), in the formate of Firstname Lastname (e.g. Jule Styne). I endeavor to spell all names correctly.
I recognize that these designations are my own, so variations don’t bother me so much.
Track names should not include track numbers - there’s a separate tag field for that! Multiple disc sets should not be indicated in such in the album title (e.g. “Follies Disc One”) but rather in the appropriate tag.
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg!
That doesn’t mean I’m not judging them for the way they list the songwriters, singers, and other assorted information in the metadata tags.
Who wants the worry, the noise, the dirt, the heat?
Who wants the garbage cans clanging in the street?
I don’t. I mean, I’ve had good and bad experiences with all of them. Right now I’m on the Megabus. The price was right, but the service is hit and miss. I’ve had similar experiences with Bolt. If price is no object, look into Limoliner.
I could see it, although the religious differences might be a problem for us in the long term.
Not yet! And I’m worried it’s going to slip out of theaters before I get a chance. I also haven’t seen Brave yet. Those are both my movie priorities for the next few weeks. (Anyone in Boston want to see one or the other with me? Or, I suppose, anyone in NY want to catch an afternoon screening on Friday?)
I liked it, except…
It was so fucking predictable, particularly if you know anything about the comics.
