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.

Welcome to my new world

Okay to start off this is probably my fourth or fifth blog, but I am going to try to make this my permanent blog from now on.  In this blog, I am not limiting myself to talking about movies, music, pop culture, etc.  This blog will be whatever is on mind at the time,  and hopefully where I can open myself up more creatively.   Those who know me, know that I have a lot to say, I just need to make it count for something and having this blog will help me do that.  For those who don’t know me, you soon will, by way of this blog, know a few things about me.  So without further ado, I will start.
