Rock Me Amadeus

I really enjoyed Hamilton when I saw it.  And I was watching it, I thought this could have easily been made in the eighties.  It reminded me of Falco’s Rock Me Amadeus.  And I also thought, it would be cool to see a musical for Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.  They could use the theme of rivalry between him and Antonio Salieri as was done in the movie Amadeus that came out a year before the song Rock Me Amadeus.

I thought the movie was cool when I saw it as a child.  But then it was probably the infectious laugh of Tom Hulce who played Mozart.  I’m not sure if I could watch the film these days, it’s three hours long.  Maybe if it were a mini series or as it is called these days a limited series.  Then I would be able to watch it.

Anyway, I think it would be cool to have a musical done in the style like Hamilton for Mozart.  And use the song Rock Me Amadeus as the foundation of the musical.

  So I made some changes in plan for my birthday.   I decided to get a room at Aksarben Suites.   I’ll spend the day in Aksarben and pretend that I traveled.   What I will have, I’ll decide tomorrow, although I suspect that it will be Pickleman’s pizza.   I’ll read and chill.   Maybe I’ll take a bus to the Dundee Dell.   So many things I can do.   For coffee, I’ll go to the Starbucks on 90 th and Pacific.   That one has the Verismo coffee machine makes an excellent cup of coffee.   I can even take an early walk at the lake as I make my way to Aksarben.

Song mood: Mysterious Ways by U2. Currently I’m listening to The Ruin by Dervla McTiernan.  I’ve listened to a couple of novellas that she wrote where her detective Cormac Reilly briefly shows up in and liked them.  This is the first book with her star detective.  Between McTiernan and Trevor on who writes better suspense, I would say hands down McTiernan.   A person who writes mysteries as a genre follow a set of conventions so that the reader isn’t in a state of confusion.  One great example is putting dates before each section or series of sections.  Literary writers don’t follow conventions and the confusion at times come from the writing.  Where I say, let the characters mislead the reader not the writing itself. I am enjoying The Ruin .  It’s nice to get back to a solid mystery. I continue to walk at the lake.  Although, it’s a modified path where I get around 2.5 miles instead 4 miles.  I still need to figure out what to do for exercise in the winter.  I want to get a rowing m
