    I love Mandy Patinkin, I was lucky to have seen him in “Sunday in the Park with George” (Bernadette Peters, too@) in NYC a brazillion years ago. And then again in concert at Ravinia a year ago, He is amazing, He opened with the opening “song” from “The Music Man” – the” Rock Island” and called it the first rap song ever. 😉 He did it center stage, in front of 2500 in the pavilion and thousands more in the park grass, no prompts, or cues, without missing a syllable. I’m still smiling about it today. I’m now watching “Homeland” and loving every second he is on camera.

      Also….The Son Obama wish he would have had ? Via Les Miz’s Hugh Jackman, I’m melting……

      • leslie says:

        Oh, yes. I go limp every time I hear this. Hugh Jackman was heaven in this film. I remember sitting next to a couple of younger teen boys who I thought would be restless and noisy because they were goofing around during the promos, but they were mesmerized throughout the film. I had to give one of them a Kleenex during the movie. He was as teary-eyed as my daughter and I.
        Are you going to see “The Theory or Everything”? Eddie Redmayne who was so wonderful in Les Miz is receiving similar praise for his portrayal of Stephen Hawking. I’m going to try to see it before Christmas.

        • DeniseVB says:

          Thanks, was trying to remember Redmayne’s Hawking. I hear he’s awesome in that role too. He’s certainly got my fanvote and here too 😉

    • leslie says:

      After you view this video, click on the link to the Mandy Patinkin/Nathan Gunn interview. It’s wonderful and informative and shows these men as real people, and friends, and likeable and fun. These are the two I saw at Ravinia. Last summer they were booked at Ravinia for early July, but Patinkin had to back out due to filming “Homeland” (I think). I hope they will be back here again. They are both from this area to begin with. So I hope this draws them back.

      in honor of Mandy Patinkin’s performance…. It’s not Mandy, but it is what he did – all parts……..

    I wonder if the small businesses in Ferguson could take a page from the Guardian Angels along their main shopping strip. Seems several were willing to stand up against the scum during the riots. It is in the communities best interest to protect main street. I have seen how one abandoned dilapidated building will metastasize and eradicate a neighborhood.

    I hope this works. I wanted to share this with my TCH’ers

    My Broadway shout-out to MO… 😉

    Sigh. Me too…..

    I started watching this show New Tricks on hulu. I like it. I even like the theme song

  9. HELENK3 says:

    when the NAACP really does something for the advancement of colored people instead of just keeping them in line and collecting donations they might be worth something. until then they are a useless as a bucket of warm spit

  10. westcoaster says:

    If they took Cosby’s mural down, Obama’s (right next to it) would be still up. How ironic.

  11. mothy6767 says:

    Cracking Walking Dead.

  12. westcoaster says:

    … Jesse Jackson in Seattle tonight spreading Christian values in a church, NOT.

  13. HELENK3 says:

    St Louis police group speaks out on Rams players

    I am glad the cops are finally speaking out. the backtrack bunch and the rioters would have been happier if the cop died so a thug could feel like a big man

  14. HELENK3 says:

    about that war on women. I thought that making abortion legal was to end the conditions that back alley abortions created. Now it seems the conditions are legal too

  15. WMCB says:

    Doubling down. No one cares. We’re done. We’re sick of it.

    • Lulu says:

      Being told over and over “why” something happens which is obviously a lie to anyone with eyeballs in the real world but propagandized endlessly into a twisting, writhing assemblage of hooey doesn’t make it true. The professional victims are running out of gas and so are their hangers on in the media, law, and politics. I have a theory that many voters voted for Bronco to make this kind of stuff go away. The country wasn’t racist, was open minded, gave an affirmative action cipher a chance to govern, and look what we got. The idiocy and victimology got worse. Failed experiments and ventures get swept under the rug. Let’s not talk about THAT mess! Schumer rang the clarion call that it is time to move on from the big boo-boo of Obama (Obamacare IS Obama). The Ferguson mess was supposed to be the great community organizer’s last hurrah at well, um, organizing. Something. It failed too because it was based on anger, lies, garbage and hooey. Now Ferguson is Obama too. Another mess about lies.

      I am finished. Beyond exhausted by this hideous manufactured theater. Al Sharpton makes my blood boil.
      Meeting at the White House– wtf is to come from that. Let thugs steal?

      • Lulu says:

        From what I can gather, at the very core of it all, is that cops are not supposed to tell blacks to walk on the sidewalk, or really speak to them without their permission, as it is basically disrespectful. The big deal about Wilson not knowing that there was a robbery, was about he had no right to tell a couple of stoners to get the hell out of the middle of the street. “Don’t speak to me without my permission” is at the core of it just like Martin/Zimmerman was about “Don’t look at me or question why I am roaming around in a private housing complex in the rain at night”. It is the demand that no one, especially a white person, can question what the hell they are doing. Suspicions of crazy, illegal, stupid, impaired behavior is not to be mentioned, called attention to, or questioned ever by a white of a minority. It is a demand for carte blanche.

          You just reminded me of Louis Gates, breaking into his home after locking himself out.
          “Stoopid cops”.

          • Lulu says:

            Exactly. But Gates would have been screaming about no patrols if his house was burglarized or burned down and no neighbor called the fire department. They hate authority because they often look like fools because they are. If I recall correctly Gates couldn’t open his own damned front door which looks foolish which made him mad and so he smarted off at the cops because he looked a fool. I got caught climbing into my own house window when I locked my keys in the car with three little kids running around in the cold. I told the cop I was an idiot and he helped me break into my own house THEN demanded ID which I gave him. I was at fault not the cop.

    Everyone needs to go read this guy’s twitter timeline. (This is part of a long series of tweets.) He’s preaching truth, and hits the GOP as well.

    The cake lady sure is raking it in– over 263,000. I hope she gets a zillion dollars just to drive em nuts. They fought over t shirts in a parking lot!?!?!?
