This weekend we watched The Producers (Zero Mostel) which was... a little baffling. I've never liked Gene Wilder, which is rooted in a weird deep-seated childhood fear of men with curly blond hair. (No thanks to The Greatest American Hero, no doubt.) But he was kind of funny in this. I hear the musical on broadway is better. We also watched Hair, which... uhhh... was great, really. (Treat Williams has MAJESTIC EYEBROWS!!) And as a result I'm actually listening to something other than Genesis for once. Which brings me to:

How is it that I can't get a copy of FREEDOM ROCK on the all-encompassing internet? (oops, actually I could on ebay.) More to the point, why can't I find the commercial? Hey man... is that freedom rock man? Yeah man. Well turn it up, man!! Ahhh, memories.

Why is getting things framed so g.d. expensive? I got 2 Genesis posters on ebay and Michael's quoted me $120 for JUST ONE of them. Without a mat. I'm off to Joanne's with a coupon from the very kind dharshai to see how that goes this evening. Then Tea!

The big boss is back tomorrow. I hope the work world doesn't explode.

We managed to get ourselves yet another 60% off coupon for framing at ACMoore. When used, it took a $220 framing job down to about $88 (just estimations). This was for a print I spent $25 on, and that was just frame and glass. Yes, custom framing is expensive as hell. But so worth it for the right stuff.

I loved The Greatest American Hero. "...I'm walking on air, never thought I could feel so free free free!" But I will admit that it doesn't hold up today.

We own a professional mat cutter. You are welcome to use it. Buying a frame is much cheaper if you don't need to get a mat cut.

It's my hair like Jesus wore it
Hallelujah I adore it
Hallelujah Mary loved her son
Whyyyyy don't my MUTH-UH LOVE ME

I was a little disappointed with the movie personally, but that's because I love the play.

We were highly disappointed that no one fell through a hole in the flag, let me tell you.

So now I have to see the play somehow.

I would *love* to see Hair on stage. Couldn't stand the movie, myself. Love the songs, though....

Oh man, I had such a crush on Gene Wilder for most of my young girlish life!
