Marion Brings Back Cybergosh
Well i almost made it through a full week without checking EG after it was diagnosed as bad for my health. You have this bit of news to blame for my return. This, plus my unrelenting need to let you know what i love and hate have won over my gaybaby closeminded psychoticness. It is the awesomest confirmation of a rumor having to do with Indy IV we’ve see so far.
I tell ya, the more this production continues, the more excited i get. i will truly never really enjoy the shia factor, but this…this is enough to cancel him out and allow me to overlook his ever-pasty face.
And while i’m here…
The shocker of the summer…
I loved HAIRSPRAY. I loved all the music so much i went back and saw it again. One of the best musicals to come along in a long while..and the most Disney-esque and Menken-esque musical that is neither Disney nor Menken. If i would have know Marc Shaiman’s songs were so great i would have gone to see this on Broadway when it arrived five years ago. I was never a fan of the original film, so i never really thought i cared. Although i don’t imagine i would enjoy it live as much. The Travolta aspect of this film is one of the greatest oddities in film history. I still don’t know what i was looking at. Walken is great. So cool to see Pffiefer back up there singing. It’s been too long. Love the Grease/Grease 2 reunion sort of aspect to it. And it really is a Grease for a new generation, in a way. And even those who were previously found annoying (Efron, Bynes, Latifa) were all very likable. Go figure.
I hate bright, sunny days. They put me in a bad mood. But, after SUNSHINE, i will now think of Cillian Murphy every time the sun shines down on me…and of how much i enjoyed this film.
I didn’t get to see the last half hour of THE SIMPSONS MOVIE. The theater lost its power. The funny thing is, i wasn’t all that upset. Oh well. So much for the 18 year wait.
What else? I guess the only thing left to report is that i spent most of the week in the house, as i said, getting through YEAR 7. And holy shit. Jesus christ in the sky. Summer 2010 cannot get here soon enough. I wonder who the hell will direct the last year?? I think i’m actually going to read it again right away. I love being on the subway and spotting the other magical people with it in their hand. I love the little glance and knowing nod that you get when you encounter one of them. I love to look at how far into they are..and i love how they’re observing the same thing…yeah – yeah i have to re-read this again right now! Unreal!!!
