'The Day After That' from 'Kiss of the Spider Woman'

Fri, 27 Aug 2010 04:01:00 +0000


'kiss of the spider woman' opened in 1993 on broadway. the cast starred brent carver as molina, anthony crivello as valentin and chita rivera as spider woman/aurora (see sidebar) all of whom won tony awards.
the show itself won best musical, book and music and lyrics.

not long after liza minnelli recorded the 'day after that' which she premiered live at the un on world's aids day. it became an anthem in the fight against aids.

i've chosen to post two of liza's versions here.

however the best version of all was the original by anthony crivello who won a  most deserved tony award for his role as molina. this is the best i could do. it's not about the pictures or the video. it's all about the music, the lyrics and anthony's amazing voice.

What a Disgrace: What a Frackin' Hypocrite*

Thu, 26 Aug 2010 16:38:00 +0000

ken mehlman the former republican national committee chairman during gw's administration and was the architect of much of the anti-gay rhetoric and policies during that time has come out of the closet.

 well congratulations you moron. you think this is too little too late? well damn it i do!  go back to your bush cronies. we have no use for you now. when you could have done something you chose to do nothing. you should have stayed in your closet. i have no pity for your 'journey'. typical republican closet case who's motto seems to be 'first do harm'.



*for one of the few times i can remember i totaly disagree with chris mathews on this subject.

What's On My Mind Today? Charlie Crist

Wed, 25 Aug 2010 15:54:00 +0000


i never blogged about the florida primaries because i was just waiting. i choose not to vote for any of the democrat party nominees even though it is my party affiliation. when charlie crist decided to run as an independent i kind of knew where my senate vote was going in november. he has been a good governor and generally at odds with his republican party. that scored him a lot of points with me.

now if he'd only come out of the closet. charlie...we all know!



"What if..."

abc and soapnet had characters from different daytime dramas bumping into each other this summer. i admit that i've been a closeted 'general hospital' and 'one life to live' watcher for the past gazillion years. time to come out of the closet.

As Suspected

Tue, 24 Aug 2010 04:02:00 +0000

(image)
a week or so back it was speculated that sandra and director stephen daldry may work together. the speculation seems to becoming more of a fact with tom hanks jumping on board.

sandra 'blindsided' most critics and bloggers when she was nominated for best actress this past film year. some had to eat their pig-skin when she won. now she is teaming up with daldry who directed nicole kidman to her oscar ('the hours) and then directed kate winslet to her's ('the reader'). so to the nay- sayers i say...watch out. number two isn't too far-fetched.


A few weeks ago, Sandra Bullock was seen leaving a meeting with Stephen Daldry with what looked like a script in her hands. Today it’s fairly certain that script was Eric Roth’s adaptation of Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. Varietysays Bullock and Tom Hanks may be the director’s first choice to play the adult leads alongside a precocious kid facing a world of tragedy and post-traumatic stress just after the World Trade Center attack.
'Warner Bros. and Paramount are eyeing Sandra Bullock and Tom Hanks for the feature version of post- 9/11 drama “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close” with Scott Rudin producing.
Warners, the lead studio on the project, indicated it has made offers to the thesps but is not yet in formal negotiations. And the studios have not yet greenlit the project. The Jonathan Safran Foer novel, set in 2003, centers on a 9-year-old boy who finds a key in a vase that belongs to his father — who perished in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks — and searches to find the lock that goes with it. It was one of the first American novels to incorporate the Sept. 11 events into the plot.'

'To Know Him Is to Love Him (Her)'

Sun, 22 Aug 2010 04:01:00 +0000

following up on spotlighting linda ronstadt yesterday leads me to this trio by linda, dolly parton and emmylou harris.

the song is one of my all time favorites.

the original was recorded by a 50's group called the ponitails

the beetles saw fit to record it with a few updated lyrics as 'to know her is to love her' listen carefully.

What's On My Mind Today

Sat, 21 Aug 2010 12:50:00 +0000

Barack vs Moslem Haters this obama being a moslem has to stop. this is racism through and through. who are these nutjobs who think this? well i know we know who they are!  after listening to this crap on cnn the other night i have to wonder why barack or anyone else would want to be a christian. this is franklin graham a so called 'christian'.Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economyand what if he were of the moslem faith. is their anything in the constitution of the united stated that says moslems can't be president. it seems that many christians believe freedom of religion is only for them. i was raised christian. they tried to turn me into a papist. no fracking way. i was out of there. i converted to judaism which was the faith of jesus. o yes it was! he was born a jew and died a jew. he had no idea that within three hundred years a bunch of 'jesus cults' would get together and form these arrogant religions one born out of the other out of more arrogance and enter the concept of religious greed. for the record the jewish faith, the moslem faith and the christian faith are all the founded on the faith of abraham. start reading folks. educate yourselves. don't be led blindly by bigoted morons. and faith is far different from religion. faiths are equal while it is religions that cause the fights and the factions and the fractions of the crazies. but i believe i am preaching to the choir. those who swallow this nonsense that permeates around the world, particularly in america,  have probably given up on my blog already or are about to now. goodbye and good riddance. once again here's keith...watch and listen and learn.Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy[...]
