Yay, I Got My Russell Oberlin DVD!

It came on Thursday. Of course, I watched it that night. It's a good thing it didn't come on Friday, or I might have had to miss the Think Tank. Also, I watched a lot of it again this weekend, while visiting my parents.

The DVD includes a detailed interview from 2004, made just for the new DVD, as well as pieces recorded for Canadian TV in the early 1960s. There were even songs I hadn't heard him sing before, such as Schumann. Also, I think you haven't lived unless you've seen Russell Oberlin in costume (including wig) singing (and acting out) Handel arias. :-) He does "Pompe vane di morte... Dove sei" and "Vivi, tiranno." Or perhaps that last one should be written "Vivi, tiranno!!!" Oh, and "I know a bank where the wild thyme blows" from Britten's "A Midsummer Night's Dream," also in costume. Sorry, he doesn't do the Purcell or the St. Godric in costume. ;-)

Moonstone Got a Hair Cut!

I really wasn't planning to write this bit, but suddenly, I decided that Zakira would worry that Moonstone's long hair was too recognizable, and she would cut his hair before they escaped to the barge. Moonstone's reaction during this scene was priceless. He was not a happy mage.

Also, the scene leading up to that bit turned out to be different from what I expected. Moonstone, Rowena, and Zakira escape the palace by going through the spiralling drain that empties the water from the royal baths into the river. It ended up being slapstick in parts. I'd say it was the influence of watching all those episodes of "Some Mothers Do 'ave 'em" recently, but Moonstone is no Frank Spencer. :-)
