Tony “cheat sheet”, via Christopher Frizzelle at the Stranger. He also has NPHarris’ amazing opening act, all eight-plus minutes, but I’m more impressed by the closer, since I assume it was being written during the show itself. Besides: Audra McDonald!
What’s on the agenda for the evening?
Going to ponder what Tom Brady is going to do now that Tebow will be on the squad to usurp him.
Did you just stomp on your own post, AL?
ETA: I see it was about 20 minutes. Never mind.
Finally gonna transfer files from my okd computer to the new one and hopefully backup the files on my passport device. Until then, im watching Person of Interest which in light of all this NSA mess is almost…IDK, what’s the word I’m looking for?
@Baud: This is a full-service blog. I’m aware that not everyone wants to discuss Snowden and/or the NSA.
John doesn’t pay you enough.
Belafon (formerly anonevent)
How many saw Rory (Arthur Darvill)? I want to see if I can find a soundtrack for Once to see what he sounds like on the entire song.
I watched the NPH bit and I watched the magician part a few times. How the hell did he make it to the back of the hall? I was looking for something obvious like a cloth or something after he went into the box. I couldn’t figure it out but there couldn’t have been more than 30 secs between the door and him coming from the back.
Copper River salmon is in season. I made a special trip to a supermarket that has it on sale. I’m pan searing that for dinner. Probably boil up some potatoes I grew myself, stir fry a few beet greens I also grew myself and call it dinner.
Passed my bp check in with room to spare. Down 19 pounds to boot. Now I’m celebrating with prosciutto and stinky cheese.
@Suffern ACE: Congratulations! Didn’t know you were going for a BP check. Is this some kind of requirement you have to meet or just a general health thing?
@mai naem: Someone who was in the audience says that he simply ran off the stage and up the aisle to meet the Newsboys. Still some damn fine direction that the home audience didn’t catch and some damn fine conditioning to sing after sprinting around like that.
It was nice to see NPH with the producer credit, too. Another story I heard online: according to someone who used to work as his PA, he gets up early every morning and memorizes shit, just to keep in practice. The man has worked his pert little ass off to get where he is.
On edit: ahh, how did he get out of the box? MAGIC!
Know the crazy, orange-bedecked WSJ laydee who hates, hates, hates bikes and Bloomberg (not necessarily in that order)? I want Commissar Bloomberg to dig a giant fucking hole in front of her Upper West Side building and install one of these.
After that I want one at my office.
I’m watching the stove, to see if the codfish jalapeno biscuits are working and if the cauliflower taco shells (shut up, it isn’t your mouth it’s going into) can fucking just crisp already. I like new recipes, but I hate the testing phase.
The Atlanta CBS station cut away for news at 11pm so the last seven minutes of the Tony’s was not aired. They must have been chastised because they aired the seven minutes at four, five and six this afternoon.
I’d like to see NP Harris host the Oscars.
He would be perfect.
@Comrade Mary: NPH is quite the illusionist. It makes you wonder what his marriage to David will be like. As soon as California pulls their heads out of their asses.
Re: NPH: It’s so nice to a young actor mature into a steady multi-talented performer. I hope he has a long, successful career and love and happiness.
A non mouse
NPH is on my list of OK to mess around with. As is Hugh Jackman.
Alas, I’m on the wrong team for him…
Ran for forty-two minutes in mud. Not glamorous.
Grass fed beef and roasted peppers for dinner. Yummy, but not glamorous.
You could tell in a couple of parts that he was a little out of breath from the dancing/running/climbing, but that only made it more impressive.
Is this a dinner thread? I bought a month of meal plans from Slender Kitchen, so tonight is Maple-Mustard Chicken Tenders night, with a baked sweet potato. I suddenly realized this afternoon that maybe G was supposed to be provided with a baked potato as well, but I think he’ll be just as happy with some baked Alexia fries.
It seems they are New Yorkers. They announced their engagement when NY passed it’s SSM law.
They’re getting married in New York, but I think they’re currently living in Los Angeles — David Burtka has a catering company out here.
i wasn’t enamored by “doogie (the teenage genius) howser” in the late ’80’s,
but i am now stunned by what a brilliant, multi-talented performer he has become…
i love genius + heart + humor.
like gail collins and anne laurie and john cole.
@Comrade Mary: Yeah, but do we have to have the rapist Tyson? ugh.
