  1. So: they didn’t like Diana: The Musical much, eh? At least, I get that vague impression….

  2. I’m not sure I understand “worst performance by Bruce Willis”… there are less worse and worst worse? And does that include “plot” (and yes, I meant the quotes around that word)?

  3. Re: Mark’s confusion. It was an entire category of performances by Bruce Willis in films released in the last year. So yes, there were greater and lesser “worst” performances.

  4. “Diana: The Musical.” Was this trip really necessary?

    I can perhaps imagine Shakespeare being capable of writing a good tragedy on the subject. If one wants music with the tragedy, try an opera–Puccini or Verdi come to mind, or perhaps Bizet. But not this. Not a Boredway-style musical. Caveat: I haven’t seen it, and don’t intend to. I am not involved in the “fandom” surrounding Princess Diana and her memory–I even missed the news of her death.

    I was at Worldcon in San Antonio at the time, and when it first hit, I was busy drinking vodka with some Russian fans, discussing Sputnik and my hometown (Sitka, Alaska, the old Russian capital of Alaska). I was so busy with fannish stuff at the con that it took until the last day for me to find out what had happened.
