Michael Tilson Thomas/Gustav Mahler-OTP

And now some words from Stephen Sondheim, sung by karaokegal doing her best Elaine Stritch, which isn't that great. (On other hand my Alexis Smith is AMAZING, but that's a different story.)

A matinee, a Pinter play,
Perhaps a piece of Mahler's.
I'll drink to that.
And one for Mahler!


Mr. karaokegal and I will going to the symphony on Saturday night to see MTT conduct Mahler's Seventh. (He'll be playing piano too.)

Here's the promo MOST SHOCKING SYMPHONY EVER:

The wrenching climax of Salome introduces Mahler’s most enigmatic symphony. Sometimes called “Song of the Night,” this music of marches and nocturnal secrets is Mahler’s ultimate challenge to performers and a fascinating journey for listeners.

This should be fun. We're gonna dress up and take a cab. MTT is always fun to watch and who doesn't like Mahler, right?

Yet another in list of fabulous things about liviing in San Francisco-MTT!

(I assume I'll probably be dragged to see "Surf's Up" at some point this weekend as well. Hubby is super-psyched for surfing penguins.)


Major kink on the right side. Neck, shoulder blade etc. Not sure if I over-did weights or slept funny or shouldn't have slept with the window open. Either way, OUCH! Very limited range of motion. OUCH! I'm going up to Kathy's after work for a massage and see if that helps.


Thanks everybody for signing up for the virtual picnic! My f-list totally rocks.
