Thanks to the It's So Gay thread, I now have a number of show tunes bumping around in my noggin.

At the moment, I have "The Barber and His Wife" (Sweeney Todd, Len Cariou singing) vs. "The Point of No Return" (Phantom, Michael Crawford) bouncing around in my head.

Odd, considering I much prefer pre-Sondheim musicals (although I love his work).  I'm a mark for Rogers and Hammerstein's ANYTHING.

Top for me is Cole Porter, although there are NO decent recordings. Ella Fitzgerald ruined his "song book". Brilliant ironist. Back when "musicals" were just fun. Incredible song writer. I can only wonder how his works should be performed.

I feel like that with quite a number of pre-war stuff, especially 19th century classical works.  I get the feeling that I'm being cheated even when the most esteemed orchestra and conductor do, say, Paganini.  I would imagine if I heard it in a properly sized theater, I would feel better, but, alas, there's nothing like that in the US, at least.  


Here in my fair city we have a lovely music hall, great acoustics, architecture, etc. But it is just too big.

Symphonic works don't suffer as much from the scale, but you really have to have top players to pull off an opera.

Living in Europe, it was stupidly better in terms of the smaller scale. Really saw some amazing stuff.

Yeah, I am much more of a modernist with musicals, although I do like a lot of the classic songs, singing wise. I haven't listened to musicals in 4 or 5 years, so I am just getting my memory back. I am surprised at how much I've forgotten!

In the past few days I listened to: Chess, Someone Else's Story; of course Les Mis; and Into the Woods, my first Broadway musical.  Smiley

The 2002 revival?  Lucky.  Yet another feather in my gay cap is my unabashed love for Dame Judi Dench, even if it was just a recorded voice.
Yes, the revival. I didn't see Vanessa Williams in it though, thank goodness, actually.

I also have some tales to regale you with about my tenuous connection to someone on the off-Broadway cast of Godspell, Avenue Q, ans now on NCIS LA  Wink

If I am still alive and on speaking terms with you, you must let me know before you go. Spent a lot time in the area, relatively speaking. I ain't going to go off on travel planning . . . waiting for customs actually to approve something to ship to Munich at the moment, er last three hours, wait five hours.

I mostly listen to music in my head. I often find myself listening to Les parapluies de Cherbourg. I can't  specify a song, it is the "recitatives" (for lack of a better term) that entrance me. Transient, beautiful, emotional, musical expressions that can only linger and be further developed in one's mind. Examples would be when Geneviève tells her mother she is pregnant, when Madeleine informs Guy that her Aunt has died, when Guy proposes to Madeleine. I love this opera/movie. I dedicated my Ph.D. dissertation to Catherine Deneuve because of it. And yes, I know she lip-synched her way to stardom in this movie.

We finally have something in common. IsmiLiroa, when I recommended it to her, said she slept through it once.

Who cares about the lip-synching? Never will another film be done that will match it. The work involved was massive.

Do you mind sharing what your dissertation topic was?

I'm currently listening to a terrible demo from a friend's first hardcore band from the 90s that he recently had transferred from tape to digital.  He asked me to play it on my podcast. 

I can't do it.  The songs aren't half bad, but the recording itself is atrocious...some of the worst basement recording I've ever heard. *shudder*

I thought that Castellano had the lisp-y S? Maybe I'm wrong.

And I should have said "Cathtellyano," because I think the "ll" is actually pronounced in Spain.

My teachers were Cuban and Mexican, soooo.....they gave me a whack on the head whenever I used "vosotros," beating that out of me pretty quickly.

Castellano or Castilian is the non-nationalistic way of calling the language you call Spanish. English speakers will call what you are referring to as Castilian.

When view "snobbery" DVDs with various subtitles, opera for example, rarely is español an option but rather the more worldly and PC castellano.

I watch foreign films and I have never seen the Castellano option for subtitles.  Huh But I own a grand total of 25 films (99% foreign films), so my point is probably invalid.

I thought that Castilian was a Spanish regional dialect. Mehhhhh.

Everyone is correct. As it is a fluid term. But if you talking to an uptight PC non-Spanish Spanish speaker, you might hear about it.

Don't worry I almost punched out a Canadian for telling me I wasn't an American but a United Stateser, because everyone in the Americas is American.

I thought he was joking. He wasn't.

Everyone I know who goes to those bar trivia nights watches Jersey Shore unironically.

I think I would have a lot of fun at those, though, if you put enough lambic in me (I.E. two glasses). I'm a great **** talker for anything from ping-pong to Scrabble.

Everyone I know who goes to those bar trivia nights watches Jersey Shore unironically.

It is not the task of Christianity to provide easy answers to every question, but to make us progressively aware of a mystery. God is not so much the object of our knowledge as the cause of our wonder.

More useless trivia this board contains.
I remember my middle school had a Bible quiz boardgame and it said on the box, "The Game Where Trivia is not Trivial."


They also had a Christian Monopoly imitation called "The Richest Christian" with cards like, "Your godly grandfather goes home to be with the Lord and leaves you 1 Million dollars."

All I know is that a buncha people I know go to bars to compete in "trivia". I want to go one day and hope they ask where the word trivia comes from.

Papist would self reflexively bodily function himself.


Oh yeah, Papist I forgot to mention how to start getting back at all those folks who reduce your tradition and religion to such a pejorative term: start using quadrivia instead.

It drives them crazy.

You have one chance to redeem yourself in my eyes:

Roth or Hagar?

There is a clear choice. There is no trick. It is one or the other. And I ain't talking about women from the Bible or a Jewish author who never got over his mommy.

I mean, Roth is the only answer, but I'm too committed to country music to get overly sentimental about it.

OK. I hate Van Halen. Can't stand their music at all.

But David Lee Roth is some sorta freak of a genius. If you have ever heard him talk for more than an hour, sober even, it is a wonder.

It is good. Van Hagar is not compelling.
