I liked Martin Landau's work in Mission: Impossible. And I like the misspelling ("disquise") in this still from an episode in the first season. Yes, I am easily amused.
For a larger view, click on the pic of the animal that didn't recently dismiss accusations that he's willing to suppress his ideals for the sake of power. Program notes for Holst's The Planets often point out that the vocal parts in the last movement (Neptune, the Mystic) are performed by an offstage choir. The score has specific directions:
The Chorus is to be placed in an adjoining room, the door of which is to be left open until the last bar of the piece, when it is to be slowly and silently closed. The Chorus, the door, and any Sub‑Conductors that may be found necessary, are to be well screened from the audience.Neptune ends on faintly sung notes. I can see how Holst felt that punctuation was in order. The door‑closing is like a period.
And I like the ritual aspect of the instructions. Even though the audience neither sees nor hears, the closing of the door is a moment to be savored. It's an esoteric touch, an arcanum shared by the composer and the performers (and anyone curious enough to have read the score).
The laws of mathematics are very commendable but the only law that applies in Australia is the law of Australia.
"It's got a fillum on it," the guy behind the counter said. In the spirit of not being contradictory, my dad followed his lead and pronounced film with two syllables for the rest of the discussion.
The old mirror was deemed a lost cause and I bought a new one (aluminized rather than silvered) which I still have.
I wonder if the dude who said fillum was responsible for editing their catalog, which included this: If I start spelling top‑notch with a k, now you know why.
