"But every word you say today gets twisted round some other way."

It's sunny out, but only 61˚F. Still, better than rainy and 47˚F.

Yesterday, I wrote 1,151 words on "Dancy Vs. the Pterosaur." I'm hoping to finish it tomorrow, if all goes well. It will be appearing in Sirenia Digest #111.

Please note the current eBay auctions and please note, especially, that in less than four hours the auction for La fille qui se noie, the French language edition of The Drowning Girl: A Memoir, will end. The publisher only sent me three of these, and it's unlikely I'll be selling another. So, if you want this edition, signed by me, this is your one chance (unless a box of this edition someday falls from the sky and lands in my lap...which would hurt). Thank you!


Last night, Kathryn and I attended a special screening of Norman Jewison's Jesus Christ Superstar (1973), with five cast members in attendance. This has always been my favorite Andrew Loyd Weber musical and one of my favorite films. The newly restored print was astoundingly clear. Well, technically it was DCP (Digital Cinema Package) and not a print at all. There are photos behind the cut:

My copy of the film soundtrack LP, which I've had since I was in high school.

The cast. Left to right: Larry Marshall (Simon Zealotes), Ted Neeley (Christ), Barry Dennen (Pilate), Bob Bingham (Caiaphas), and Kurt Yaghjian (Annas).

Kurt Yaghjian

Bob Bingham (who tried to hug the stuffing out of me)

Larry Marshall

My personal favorite of cast, the amazing Carl Anderson, who died in 2004 (from "Too Much Heaven on Their Minds").

This morning, my copy of the soundtrack, with signatures.

And now, it's time to hit the word mines.
