First of all...  
...did anyone get to see Julie Ann last night on "Cupid?" I have it recorded, but haven't seen the episode yet - but according to my Mom (and Kevin) it was VERY cute. :)

Secondly... I just got an email notification that "Universal Signs" is going to have their world premiere on May 30th!! FINALLY!! I think the movie was already in post production when I first met Anthony like 2 1/2 years ago - when we FIRST started talking about creating his web site... :P

I really wish I could see it, but I doubt it will ever be shown here... I'm SO happy for Anthony - and I'd been waiting SO long for this movie to be released! What I love about it is that there's no speaking in the movie at all, only signing and open captions for the "ASL-impaired." ;)

The trailer is here on Anthony's site if anyone is interested. :)

Speaking of which... I've been doing a lot of thinking about PIPPIN recently and I really didn't want to forget what made the Taper production so special to me... I do have a couple of questions for folks who saw the show on different weekends...
  • I LOVED the way Michael adopts a sarcastic southern accent when he and Catherine are speaking about his despair. Catherine asks in a thick southern accent, "Is that it?" and only on the last couple performances that I saw did Michael respond, "Yes, that's it!" with a noticable, sarcastic southern accent. I LOVED it! Anyone see a show earlier in which Michael did this?

  • Also, I LOVED the way Michael's voice totally cracked - during "With You" - when the female hand comes up from the floor to touch his chest as he's singing, "But nights were warm beyond compare..." he did it VERY noticably the last performance I saw in February - to the point where he was having trouble getting his words out and practically stuttered (I LOVED IT!), but he didn't do it again in March. Did anyone notice that he did this at any performances that they saw?
One final thing... my taxes have finally been filed! It's good news that my web business was so successful last year, but bad in that I certainly had to pay for it in taxes! :P Well, at least it's done and I don't have to worry about it anymore...

Well, I'm off to pre-order my "Universal Signs" DVD!! Hope you all have a lovely evening!! :)

Michael did do the southern accent at all three performances I saw closing weekend. Big, big laugh. I did not notice the other thing you mentioned. DOesn't mean he didn't do it, just that I didn't notice.

And yay! for Universal Signs. Can the DVD really already be pre-ordered?

The shows that I saw, I thought the southern accent was hysterical, but the first time I saw him do it, it didn't get too many laughs... the second time got a much better response from the audience. I LOVED it!! And I never noticed the voice cracking in any other performance I saw... it was perfect, though!!

I just pre-ordered my US dvd! :) I've been waiting for so long to see this movie! :) So glad that it's finally going to be available! :D

I would love to pre-order the movie myself! Do I go to the official website to do that? Thanks, BTW, for the heads up!

And thanks to you, during some of my 5 hour drive to my parents' I thought more about Pippin. When I have time, I will share my thoughts, if you like. :-)

Yes! In fact, here's the link to pre-order it! :) I'm glad so many are interested in seeing it! It got a really good reception when it was previewed in LA last year. :) I'm glad it's finally getting released! :)

And yes, I'd love to hear more Pippin thoughts!! :) It was truly one of the better theatre experiences that I've had this year and I really loved the cast and DWT's interpretation!!

ETA: Sorry, Cooper stepped on my computer and sent the message before I was done! ;P

I will go to that link forthwith to pre-order away. :-) Thank you for providing it!

When I have time to sit down and collect my thoughts more, I will definitely share more of my Pippin thoughts. :-)

And if Cooper has something to say, I'm happy to listen. He doesn't need to hijack Mommy's computer! *G*

Heehee!! Trust me, sometimes I think Cooper is trying to type out my entry for me! ;)

Yay for Universal Signs! I hope the indie movie theatre in Sacto decides to show. Isn't Melissa in the movie too?

BTW Sue Thomas FBSEye is airing on Animal Planet too, in case if you didn't know. I didn't see it often when it was first aired, so this time I won't miss it!

I really hope that it gets a wider release than just PA... I did order the dvd so at least I'm happy that I'll be able to see it. :) Don't know if Melissa's in it. :)

I loved watching Sue Thomas FBEye on YouTube! Thanks so much for letting me know it will appear on Animal Planet! I'd love to see my favorite episode with Troy without having to wait for it to download on YouTube! :D
