The Evolution of Music Videos

When was the last time you viewed a music video such as this? Ahhh. . . these were the "good ol'days". . . it is sad to see how far our society has sank within the last 50 years

The Wizard of Oz ~ A Review

Ok. . . a little late on this post, but a couple of weekends ago the gang (Hammonds’ Family, Moya Family and Mr. Wyatt) went to Monterey and Carmel for the weekend. Among other things, we enjoyed the performance of “The Wizard of Oz” at the Forrest Theater. I have written about the Forrest Theater before and most of my reviews were great!! (exception: Evita) This review will be no different. . . I give The Wizard of Oz a rating of very entertaining and pleasurable.

Because of the fact that we went on the very first night of this theatrical performance (were able to get the tickets at ½ price), some of the props were not all the way completed and there were some small mistakes throughout the play. . . nothing that couldn’t be overlooked, however. Dorothy’s voice was just a tad bit annoying, but the Wicked Witch was AMAZING!! She did a really, really good job. As Dorothy makes her way through the land of OZ she encounters many different individuals. . . Glinda, the good witch, arrives and leaves most of her scenes airborne on a glittery swing, the Munchkins were adorable, Tin Man, Cowardly Lion and Scarecrow were all in character quite well and the Wicked Witch and Flying Monkeys are also airborne throughout the performance. There was an overall “good” feeling to this performance and I would definitely recommend it!!
Toto was ADORABLE!!! and such a good actor too!

The following day, we enjoyed some of the sights around Carmel/Monterey: Carmel beach, Lover's point, Shopping in downtown Carmel (met some interesting people in a certain "soap" store), listening to Louis Lamour stories on the beach, so on and so forth! :-)
