October 20, 2012

Sweet potatoes in the sun.

Never heard of Cardoons. Seems they are "celery on steroids."

Barnes and Noble Coupon Time: Little Shop of Horrors.

Saw the original musical at the Orpheum Theatre on the LES. When I saw it, Mr. Mushnik was played by Philip “Fyvush” Finkel. Later saw Rob Bartlett as Mr. Mushnik on Broadway. Vincent Gardenia plays him in this version.

Wondered what happened to Rick Moranis and found this at IMDB:

"Following the death of his wife in 1991, the difficulty of raising their two children on his own, and his increasing disenchantment with Hollywood, Moranis retired from acting in 1997. He had intended the retirement to be a sabbatical of a couple of years, but later realized that he didn't miss the pressure. He still does occasional voice work, e.g. Brother Bear (2003)."

Barnes and Noble Coupon time: The Essential Writings of Hunter S. Thompson.

"As an afterthought, it seems hardly proper to write of life without once mentioning happiness; so we shall let the reader answer this question for himself: who is the happier man, he who has braved the storm of life and lived or he who has stayed securely on shore and merely existed? "
