of course wired

maybe even cross wired... the show was good... the music and lyrics still amazing... i am getting past the disappointment and letting go of the comparisons to the original broadway production that blew me away and so impressed me once upon a time... this road show was much smaller, just six in the chorus, and definitely toned down for a mass market... the whole production was shrunk from full blow glamorous sexy musical to a scaled down talkie show with songs that seems geared for a straight audience and way too sensitive to homophobic tendencies... that was very disappointing... and george hamilton, eh, weak voice that made it challenging to clearly hear the wonderful lyrics he spoke more than sung and mostly still posturing as he never was much of an actor... gene barry was a shock in the original, but he carried it off much much better... and this new albin is good, at times very good, but not george hearns... all in all, wonderful theatre but disappointing for the casting and much more for the shrinking and straightening up...

but it's still live theatre as big as it gets around here so yay and yeah, still wired :)

musical distractions

If people had visible signs or meters that told something about them, what would you want it to tell you?

dumb poll (above), smart responders

all the previous poll votes were somehow erased, so, nevermind... ironically or coincidentally or whatever, the results were very close in practical numbers to the results above shown with just three votes, if you understand the mathematics behind that extrapolative reasoning... i will probably remove the poll at some point... it is a ridiculously useless feature...


the thing is, with my tendency to babble and meander and whine and allow distraction to take the lead more often than not, even in this blog that sort of meant to merge brevity with focus like some bloggers do, searching for key words does not always lead to specific information about the subject of that key word... but... here is a start at an easy way to search for key words in this blog... use the search box at the top of the blog to search for words not listed here... if ya wanna, that is... and feel free to suggest words to add to this search shortcut section... click on the words below :)
