Last concerts of the season this week. It's a concert of all Disney music.

Spoiler:

I would say it is a mixed bag of good tunes, cheesy nostalgia, and utter dreck.

Man, I hate doing pop concerts. The arrangements invariably suck. That said,

Disney:
though older Disney movies had some of the sappiest songs ever, Howard Ashman's work was hands-down incredible. I remember hearing Mermaid and Beauty for the first time and holding my breath after the first line of a verse was sung, wondering how the hell the lyricist was going to resolve the next line, much less rhyme it. And when he did - spectacularly - it was such a moment of nerd joy that I nearly missed the next shining verse. Some of his double entendres had me laughing so hard that the kids I was with asked what was funny and I had to make s%~! up. The man was brilliant and wicked funny.

Losing Ashman at 40 to AIDS was one of the tragedies of modern American theater, though it's the tip of the iceberg of what that plague has cost us. Damn.


So sorry to hear about your ex, monkey. That's a rough situation, even though you are no longer together. Every day it seems the world becomes a little emptier.

My folks called me today to let me know that a) they got a dog, and b) I should drive out and visit for a few days. Sounds like they either forgot about my violent allergy to dog dander & saliva (hives on contact, airway starts to close up around hour 6), or they remembered and are trying to find a subtle way to kill me.

I'm sure you did.

You usually do interesting things. :)

Of course, in YOUR PbP's, when you say 'Interesting' I hear
'We're gonna die!' ;P

EDIT- Or at least, 'Your in for the fight of your PC's life!' ;)

I don't think his special gris-gris bags work north of the Mason-Dixon line.


Deucedly sorry about the dander old chap. Quite the sticky wicket, eh wot?


Shift two.... Initialize

Agreed! I think the Menken/Ashman stuff was some of my favorite music from the concert. Menken is still great post-Ashman, but the lyrics he is working with don't necessarily measure up,

On a related note, my solo was the Lumiere bit in Be Our Guest, so Menken/Ashman for he win!

Also, the arrangement of "When You Wish Upon a Star" we did was, in my view, stunning.

And yes, pops concerts in general are not my favorite. But the kids in the audience dancing in the aisles and such made it worth it.

Actually, he's a chiropractor who has a side speciality fixing allergies. He rid my wife of her dog allergy several years ago. Used to be, if she was even in a room with a dog, her sinuses went haywire, eyes watered, and a host of other problems.

However, when I first saw his treatment I did liken it to voodoo.


GOOD MORNING TREEFORTNAM!!!


I am feeling a touch hallucinogenic this morning. But I'm holding up well. I'm going to weasel out of this shift a bit early so I can get prepped for shift three and give my dogs a bit of a walk


Hang in there, monkey. Hope you can take tomorrow off, at least.

Orlando, what the hell?

Watch out for the reds, Man. They won't help.

Weeeeeeelllllll....

I do have to work Midnight to 8am. But after that!

Yes that does suck. Especially since my wife was planning on going there later on this year with some of her LGBT friends. She is trying real hard to not freak out.


Neither shooter was from Orland, but they both went there to do the deed. Poor city.


Sad news. Made even sadder by the agendas being pushed in the wake of the tragedy. But I'm straying into politics, so I will say no more.


T-minus one hour until Shift 3. I'm glad I took a bit of time out to relax and refocus. I certainly hope I get a tip out of this run!


Adobe comes tomorrow! Yay! Maps again!


I'm ashamed to say one of my games is mired in a fight that has been going on for a year, real time. But, it has been a very chaotic year for me

That game I lost my 'bible' to when I moved.

All my tubes and wires, and careful notes!

Didn't think it'd be this hard to find a good, English- or Swedish-language, internet page about the Ditmarschen Republic.

Like my loafers? Former gophers. It was that or skin the chauffeurs. That one?


Huh, how far Orlando is from Amby? Hmmm... 3-4 hours of drive?

If only. Those are sadly not Ashman's lyrics.

My favorite bit is:

Beef ragout, cheese soufflé
Pie and pudding en flambé
We'll prepare and serve with care
A culinary cabaret.

Or...

Go on, unfold your menu,
Take a glance and then you
'll be our guest. Oui, our guest. Be our guest.

Brilliant rhymery.


Sitting in a bus. Do dah do dah


Hmm. Methinks the wedding guests are having fun. No one has shown up to avail themselves of My livery services...


If you can't drive 'em, join 'em.


And so. Driving done. Now to change back into security uniform for Shift #4

Whee!


I'm glad I have a stretch of down time after this. Pheeew!


$21 in tips. Better than nothing I suppose..
