Re: The Most Moving Song (Non Finn)

Sue Diego ·
Back in '86/'87 (?) I saw the Stephen Sondheim musical "INTO THE WOODS" here at the Old Globe Theater, on it's way to Broadway...I loved every song in it and have memorized it backwards and forwards since then... ...but when my Dad died in '95, one lyric stood out like a beacon (from the song "NO ONE IS ALONE")...and the music is so haunting, as well...every time I hear it, it STILL makes me tear up, and brings that old familiar lump in my throat... Sometimes people leave you Halfway through...

Thanks for these reviews. It sounds like we're in for quite a treat in NYC tonight! Kia - glad to hear you're starting to get excited. Of course, you know that no matter what you're feeling ahead of time, once you're actually at the theater, the excitement is going to hit you like a ton of bricks.

Gosh, I'm like a week late, but I rarely check the BB. I just wanted to add that it wasn't Sharon Finn on bground vocals. I was standing by the sole table on the main floor. It was a group of friends of the bar's owner, and the woman who sang was one of them. (It was either right before Rhett or Neil got on stage that the owner hopped up on stage and asked her if she wanted to sing later on.) I got to the Fine Line at about 7:30, and was about the 15th person out the door (standing in the...

Kia Kaha, BIG Aussie movie fan - My Brilliant Career (was that Sam Neil's first?), Tim is one of my favorite Mel movies, I loved a Town Called Alice from Masterpiece Theater (that is available on vidio too). I know that there are others but in my old age it is getting harder to remember , but my mom and dad are the ones who introduced me to the brilliance of the "80's" Australian movies. I still cry at the end of Gallipolli (the heartbreak), Breaker Morant (the injustice) and Tim (the emotions).

To all those going to the Ann Arbor show, have a great time! I am originally from Detroit and it will be the first time I won't be seeing the Crowdies in Detroit as now I am in NYC. Last time was the for Together Alone at the State Theater. I did see the Finn Bros. while visting my family a few years back at the Magestic downtown.

I don't see the difference. Putting an R-rated movie in the DVD player (or choosing it on TV) is the same as putting a CD in your CD player. Neither one is 'shielded' from kids unless the adults around them choose to do so. Yeah, in theory kids can't go see R-rated movies in the theater, just like in theory they can't buy 'explicit' CDs in a store. But they seem to find a way to access these things anyway. My main focus was less about kids than it was musing about who would actually be...

Ok guys, calm down. In case you didn't realize, there is a history of collaboration between Disney and Jim Henson. There is a major Muppet section at Disney's MGM Studios down in Orlando. It has been there since that park opened 15(?) years ago. There is a Muppet 3-D movie, housed in its own theater, and it is BRILLIANT. And yes, it was made in collaboration with Disney, and it is true to Jim Henson's spirit. Hopefully that will put your minds at ease.

What movies are your favorites? Top 5, say? Varies somewhat from mood to mood, but a quick five off the top of my head would be: "Meet The Parents", "Pirates of the Caribbean", "Raiders of the Lost Ark", "Braveheart", and "Tombstone". Right now that list is influenced by wanting to be in a positive mental place with the baby on the way -- so some of the darker stuff has been shelved recently.

My first post here since April... I knew what was wrong with Tim's keyboard and was going crazy because I could tell he was frustrated, it was taking the tech WAY to long to get it looked at, and I wanted to just jump up there and fix it for him! Angela McClusky's keyboard player, who used the same board earlier, had been using the oscillator wheel as a lesley on the Hammond B-3 patch and forgot to put the wheel back into the zero position, so Tim's piano notes were coming out all jiggly.

Peter Gabriel's "Secret World" DVD is fabulous. I can never get enough of that one. It hasn't been out in DVD for very long, and it's so much nicer to watch on DVD than VHS.

A club-setting can't be beat, at the same time, the Wiltern theater in LA has really good acoustics. I secretly hope Neil never has to play arenas. (Sorry Neil! Not that you don't have what it takes to be an arena god - we just love our god in an intimate setting.)
