20 November 2021

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9
questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love to answer the questions, however, and here are today's questions!


Saturday 9: Somewhere (1983)

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) This song is from the hit musical West Side Story. It has just been remade by Steven Speilberg. Are you interested in seeing the 2021 version?
Yes, I am, but since I almost never go to the movie theaters, I probably won't see it until it comes out on Netflix.

2) Growing up, Crazy Sam thought this song was called, "A Place for Us." Tell us about a song whose title or lyrics you got wrong or misheard.
Arrrggghhh.  I wish I could remember.  I know there is at least one song that I sang wrong for years and was amazed when I discovered the correct lyrics.

3) Barbra Streisand sings of longing for "time to spare, time to learn and time to care." The holidays are often too busy for many of us. With Thanksgiving almost upon us, do you wish you had more time?
Since COVID came along and I did so much quarantining, I don't know what I would do with more time!  I have enough time now.

4) Early in her career, Barbra was pressured to have her nose fixed. She stubbornly refused, and did rather well anyway. Tell us about a time you resisted pressure.
Well, I had to fight to get my father to agree to let me enter the convent.  And then ultimately I made the decision not to go anyway.

5) In the late 1960s she briefly dated Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, father of current PM Justin Trudeau. Obviously Barbra knew what became of Pierre and his family without having to look them up. Without the advantage of Google, do you know where one of your former loves is in 2021?
Easy.  My first boyfriend went into the Jesuits and is in a seminary in San Jose.  Another boyfriend died of AIDS.

6) One of Barbra's hit movies is The Way We Were, a love story about hopelessly mismatched lovers. Streisand always wanted to do a sequel and worked with a screenwriter on a treatment. Her costar, Robert Redford, refused. He simply was not interested in revisiting his character. Is there a movie series that you especially enjoy?
A series, hummm.....  I've enjoyed the Harry Potter movies, but I have not seen them all.  Likewise I have enjoyed many James Bond movies.  I liked the early Star Trek movies, until they lost the original cast.  If TV movies count, I am loving the Outlander series.

7) Barbra met her husband, James Brolin, at a dinner thrown by friends. They hit it off immediately, but he had to leave the next day to begin a movie in Ireland, so they began their romance over the phone. Do you enjoy long phone calls? Would you prefer video calls (Zoom)?
I have no strong views, but think I prefer phone calls to Zoom calls....though I enjoy some Zoom calls as well.

8) On July 1, 1998, two years to the day after their first meeting, Barbra and Brolin married. It used to be that brides were advised against wearing white for their second wedding, but Barbra ignored that, wearing a white beaded gown. Do you believe brides should still avoid white the second time around?
I don't think there are any rules for brides.  It's her day.  If she wants to wear jeans, fine.  If she wants to wear white, fine.  Why should anybody care?  (White used to symbolize virginity--how many virgins marry for the first time these days anyway?  Should a bride whose child is her flower girl be forced to wear something other than white?)

9) Random question: Is anyone on your bad side this morning?
Nope.  Today is a good day. Everybody is on my good side, especially Ned.
