“Moyer's voice was tentative and weak compared to the other singers, and he had serious problems with intonation throughout the show. So he needs a lot of work before he stars as anything to do with singing”

“John Barrowman would have been a better Capt. von Trapp. You'd still have to forget the idea that he was father of a 16 year old, though.”

“Agreed. He just oozes with charisma and a strong presence. I love him on Torchwood & Arrow.”

“Carrie can sing, but not for the stage...it needs more sophisticated technique. The worst voice was Moyer--and did anyone believe he was the father of a 16 year old or a WWI captain 20 years past?”

“Hooray for the live production, which was a treat. Carrie was okay without being a great actress or having a voice really suited to the part (that nasal twang in the middle registers). I presume she was hired just for name recognition. Capt. Von T had a weak voice and had painful intonation problems (imagine John Barrowman in the role). The other singers were fine.”

“It's not a case of "be true to your school". I'm watching the US one. It's good, just not great like the one it's based on. A frequent problem with remakes. It started out fine, but it's slow and fat. You should watch the Brit one.”

“Fox is all about selling ads. As any Christian knows, following the penetential preparation that is the Advent season, Christmas begins after sundown on Dec 24 (the ancient feasts follow the evening-morning pattern of the Jewish calendar) with the secondary feast of Christ's birth as a human and builds up to Epiphany (formerly 12th night, now moved to the first Sunday after New Year), the great feast (ranking only behind Easter and Pentecost) that celebrates the manifestation of Jesus's nature as God not only as the Jew's Messiah but also as the Savior of the Gentiles as well. In all the ancient churches, that is the day for gift giving. The Christmas Fox wants to save is about shopping.”

“the GOP-teaparty aim of gutting public schools and favoring charter and private, particularly religious, schools proves to have been a disaster. why don't we abandon the century and a half old Prussian model and try the methods of those modern countries which do well? repeating "we're number one" over and over might be good at a pep rally, but it doesn't work in the real world.”
