Alas! It is finally time for the infamous annual presentation of The Phantom of the Opera!!!
Today was the day in my chorus class. All of the young ladies were swooned and entranced as Mrs. Horne gracefully belted out the melodies to this classic horror-story-turned-romance! I just love it! I remember the first time I heard the story in her class in sixth grade. My first thought was, Wow, how romantic! This has ever since opened up my eyes and ears to the world of musicals and has changed my world forever. I’m serious! You never really appreciate art or music until you learn of something so profound as to make you have a revelation of sorts!
Ever since, I’ve become obsessed with musicals and Andrew Lloyd Webber, to be precise. I’ve added at least ten to my mental musical repertoire, such as Jesus Christ Superstar, Cats, Rent, and Madame Butterfly. But, The Phantom of the Opera has ultimately topped my list and probably will for the rest of my life! Right now, I own the 2004 movie with Emmy Rossum, and one of the actual musical’s CDs (I think it’s something like the London Symphony Chorus). I’m planning on watching the movie in celebration of Valentine’s Day either tommorrow or Friday. I’m so excited! Even though it’s, like, the 6th time I’ve seen it!
Anyway, so I spent the rest of the day humming with all of the songs stuck in my head. What are you doing for Valentine’s Day?
Is anyone more excited than me about the new season of The Walking Dead?!? I didn’t think so!
How often do you really see an apocalypse show that lasts more than 6 episodes? I don’t think I’ve ever seen one as good as this. I was so mad when Dale died at the end of the last season. He was my favorite character! I always thought he was the most rational out of the entire group. Now, the best character is defintiely Carl, the little boy. Great child actor! And when Shane died, I thought, how are they even going to make another season? They just killed one of the main characters! I’m in the middle of watching the marathon right now, so I decided to share my anticipation with you. The new season starts tonight at 9/8central on AMC (Ha! You Dish-networkers!).
