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?

Aaaaaaah! Last night I went to the Rave Movie Theatre with my mummy (Halloween Pun!) and we saw the scariest movie ever together. It was The Exorcist-BUM BUM BUM!!! Wow, when you’re in a near-empty theatre, dark as a closed closet, having the scariest film ever produced flash before your eyes, you’re bound to pee your pants. I bet if I hadn’t seen that movie 5 times before, I definitely would’ve because-whew-that was something! My mother and I both agreed that the scariest part of the whole movie was right after they learned the mom’s boyfriend died, the girl came down the stairs like a crab and, like, if your queasy don’t read this next part, but, like, blood started gushing out of her mouth. That was when I screamed so loud in the middle of the movie. It’s scary just to think of it!

This marks the beginning of the Holiday Season! First Halloween, then Thanksgiving and before you know it, people’ll be smooching under the Mistletoe! But, let’s keep it to Halloween for now. I’m going to be watching scary movies like crazy this month! I wanted to give you guys some reccomendations, or, otherwise, my personal favorites. They’re not in any order either, but I will admit, The Exorcist is my all-time favorite right next to The Omen (Either version is good).

1. The Good Son

2. Child’s Play

3. The Possession-I saw this in the theatre a few weeks ago, it was pretty good if you haven’t seen it.

4. Poltergeist

5. Pet Semetary-Spine-Chilling Fun!

6. The Ring

7. Freddy Kruger/Nightmare On Elm Street

8. Silence of the Lambs

9. Evil Dead

10. The Shining

11. 28 Days Later

12. The Sixth Sense-I see dead people!

13. Saw

14. Texas Chainsaw Massacre

15. Halloween

16. Ju-on (It’s in Japanese so it has subtitles)

17. Misery

18. Carrie

19. Children of the Corn

20. The Birds

21. Rosemary’s Baby

The one movie that I really want to see that I haven’t this season is Paranormal Activity. My parents think it sounds stupid but I’m going to force them to rent it for me from Blockbuster or something!

What are your favorite scary movies of all-time? Are there any I forgot?


A few days ago, Mrs. Galloway’s 5th period class finally became the first group doing this project to actually finish filming alltogether!!! Now all we have to do is some quick scene editing and putting in transitions on a very handy-dandy computer application that the school has. We’re even almost done with that!

The only thing is that we don’t really know how to incorperate a slide show into the video. That was the other half of the project, making a presentation with a bunch of facts about bullying rates and depression and all that jazz. It was one of the first things we took care of so I never really wrote about it. Mainly Jordan and Claire were in charge of that department and when they completed the slides, everyone took turns narrating them. That was the easy part.

Writing the Script: Act VII


Tommorrow we will be filming our (hopefully) last scene!!! Today we filmed the part where me and Claire encounter Heavyn on the stairs on the 6th grade hallway. Heavyn gets taunted for being rich and Jordan comes in to save the day. What was really funny is that in order to make it seem like we were coming out of the hallway, me and Claire had to interrupt Mr. Lawson’s science experiment that was taking place at the end of the hallway like 10 times!  Everybody had also decided to switch up the script somewhat so it’s different than what I had explained in the first posts about it, but it still has the general idea.

Also it might all just go to bust because Lathan and Dionte can’t get out of their classes anymore so we might not be able to film with them, but we’ll probably figure something out…

Writing the Script: Act VI


  Me, Claire, Gina, Jordan, Heavyn, Lathan, and Dionte:

Future movie stars.

We started actually, ACTUALLY filming today. It took Mrs. Galloway 25 minutes to figure out how to use the camera and 15 to show Gina how to use it. Gina was filming today because she’s only in one scene but we did not get to that scene because class is only 50 minutes long! Also, this was Lathan and Dionte’s first time even looking at the script so that was complicated. Although we somehow managed to get to the third scene out of like 10 so that was pretty good.

Writing the Script: Act V


Writing the Script: Act IV

We performed our Rumours skit for Mrs. Galloway to get her input. She said that quote,

“It needs to be less Days-of-Our-Lives-like. Less of a 90’s preppy girl showdown.”

Everyone burst into laughter because it was true! We were so excited since it was the first time we performed it all the way through with all of the cast members, we apparently decided that we should overexaggerate as much as possible!
