This Week in Pop Culture

Alright I thought I would put my two cents in on the goings on in pop culture this week:

  •  Adam Lambert-  This week’s Rolling Stone cover story was about American Idol runner-up, Adam Lambert and his confirmation what we all knew, he is gay.  The best part of the interview was that Adam revealed that he had a crush on Kris Allen.  When told about Adam’s crush, Kris Allen told this to People Magazine,  “I’m flattered.  And think it’s hilarious.” Continue reading “This Week in Pop Culture”

2009 Movies that I Have Seen

Okay, I have to say this year so far has been one of the best years for a movie buff like myself. Here’s the movies that I have seen in theatres so far this year:

 Watchmen: Being a fan of the grapic graphic novel, I was pleased that finally this movie was made.  It was everything that I hoped it would be.  My only complaint was that the movie was a tad bit too long, but that is only a minor quibble.  I was impressed with the cast, the special effects, and the cinematograpy.  Just a few short weeks until this movie comes out on DVD  and Blu-Ray, and hopefully I will have many repeat viewings of this film.

West Side Story blogging

In honor of the release of the new Broadway cast recording of “West Side Story” being released today on CD and MP3, I thought would share my experience with “West Side Story.”  In high school, I was passionately involved in the drama program our high school had.  The first play I was in was “West Side Story” and it was also the first Broadway musical that our high school did.  I have to say from someone who’s been in “West Side Story” I have respect for anyone who has been involved with that play ever.  Not only is there elaborate choreography for all the musical numbers, the fights have elaborate choreography as well.  If you are wondering what role I played in “West Side Story”, I was one of the Jets.  It was one of the hardest yet most fun roles I played.  Anytime I hear music from “West Side Story” my mind flashes back to being in our high school production of this.  The movie “West Side Story” is easily one of my favorite movie musicals.  A big part of me would like to see them make a new movie version of it.  I know who would be the stars in my dream cast of the new “West Side Story” movie:

Tony- Adam Lambert

Maria- Vanessa Hudgens (High School Musical)

Riff- Ewan McGregor

Bernardo- Enrique Iglesias

Anita- Jennifer Lopez ( I got this idea from Vanity Fair’s “West Side Story Revisited” photo shoot, I think she would be a perfect Anita)

My Thoughts on American Idol Results

I am totally pissed!!! No disrespect to Kris Allen when I say this because he is a good singer, but he should not have won. Adam Lambert was light years ahead of Kris when it came to singing. The thing that really pisses me off was that I bet you the reason Adam didn’t win was because he’s allegedly gay. The reason I say allegedly is because Adam has neither confirmed nor denied he’s gay. The “Christians” that watch American Idol cannot stand the fact that a gay guy would have been the best singer, but the truth of the matter is it should not matter about Adam’s sexuality. He is by far the better singer. The joke is going to be on those “Christians” because Adam is going to be more famous than Kris.
