Re: BBC’s ‘Les Misérables’ Miniseries

Welp, the trailer is here. Some cursory thoughts after watching it exactly one time: - Did the wardrobe/hair/make-up departments do any of their own research or did they all just watch the 2012 musical and call it a day? - On that note, where are Cosette's mutton chop 1830's sleeves? - Pretty sure I...

Hmm, if I can I will. Just need to figure out where I'd get one from! Maybe an army surplus.

Re: Vietnamese Spambots

I have notIced in recent weeks that the number of online users has been through the roof, presumably 99% of them spam bots. Thanks for being on top of it, MmeJ!

Re: The Abaisse Performance Rubric

I'm going to code a little something with a slider so that you can slide along 1 - 10 and when you stop at any given number, a list of performers who sit at that level will pop up. And then maybe make it filterable so you can apply multiple settings and we'll see what happens. For now, we can just p...

Re: What are you reading?

I finished Frederick Backman's latest yesterday: Us Against You, the sequel to Beartown. Wept.

Highly, highly recommend both. Books about a small town that revolves around its hockey team and the trials and travails they face as a result. Spoiler alert: it's not really about the hockey.

Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

I mentioned this to our craft server on set and she said that her mother was caught in one of the hurricanes that hit down south within the past couple of years and the Red Cross went around handing out MREs to everyone. She (the craft server) has a couple that she keeps in her car in case she gets ...

The Abaisse Performance Rubric

I've always wanted to do a series of posts that describe the various performers in the show over the years to help people pinpoint actors that they think they'll like and boots that contain these performers so that they can experience them. So, looking for "rating" suggestions we can use t...

Re: Anna Karenina

The National Ballet of Canada has a new production of Anna Karenina starting this month with choreography by John Neumeier but they've set it in modern day so WHO EVEN CARES.

Re: This or That?

Ooh, that's a toughie. At first I said Sondheim and was like "I think I like more from his body of work than Sir Andrew" but then I remembered Sunday in the Park with George. And Bounce/Road Show. And Pacific Overtures . So, Sir Andrew it is! Listen to Someone in a Tree from Pacific Overtu...

Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

I'm really surprised the Russians aren't slipping vodka into theirs. Fortification, you know?

So in your experience, have combat rations developed for the better since you served?

Re: Le Cafe Mu(in)sain

Oooh, very cool. In Canada, we call them IMPs: individual meal pack. Very Canadian in that there's even a poutine one. Gross.

What gets me is that three meals = 3600 calories which is SO MANY. Active military service is a good workout.

I know you can order some from here: https://mremountain.com/

This bad boy came across my Tumblr dash yesterday: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=33LyG1B7HZM
