The Opera Glove Blog

Sorry I didn't record anything yesterday; I was tied up with other matters, and anyway there wasn't really much new to report. We're coming up on the end of the month, so another site update will be forthcoming soon; I still haven't decided which material to use, though.
The update might be delayed a bit because my birthday is coming up this weekend and my parents are arriving from out of town.

Just got home an half hour or so ago; currently in the middle of cooking dinner and taping "The Stork Club" (Betty Hutton) off TCM. That movie looks like a regular gold mine for opera glove lovers!

Another quiet day. Two more DVD's came in from Netflix today: Marilyn Monroe movies - "The Prince and the Showgirl" (just released on DVD a couple of weeks ago) and "Bus Stop". "Bus Stop" has a classic MM song scene, "That Old Black Magic", in which she wears a memorably tacky pair of black spangled operas, and "Showgirl", which was one of the first movies I ever vidcapped for the site, has several excellent scenes. Will work on those this week.

The DVD player is up and running. I purchased a RF modulator at Radio Shack and connected the DVD and VCR to run through that box (the cable converter is connected to the VCR). There was a misstep at first when I got the plugs switched around, but I fixed that and everything works now.
