Really, Only I Care

I've been watching too much YouTube and it led me to decide that when they make a Wicked movie, based on the play, not the book, Anne Hathaway should play Elphaba. She can act. She can sing. And she'll probably look really nice green.

Still not sure about Galinda/Glinda, though. The idea of Heather Morris as Glinda amuses me, but I don't think she has the voice for it. (Of course, whose voice could compare to Kristen Chenoweth? No one.)

At least I have the main character cast. (I even have a back-up actress in Jenna Leigh Green. She'd be good, too. Although I don't think she's "bankable" enough to be cast.)

Screw It

Here's a few more:

(Couldn't find a live version pre-1983 so I thought we should go with the original recording.)

I guess I'm just in a mood tonight.

Not even close... the song I wanted to post, but these are two that I never skip.

I grew up in an era without variety shows. I think I missed out on something.

Another Fucking Presidential Election

Okay, well... I wondered how it would be to work with someone who actually cared about... I mean... It couldn't always have been the way it is now. It must have been different in my grandfather's time. You were there. You had Kennedy. I didn't. I've never heard a president say "destiny" and "sacrifice" without thinking, "bullshit." Okay, maybe it was bullshit with Kennedy, too, but... but people believed it. And I guess, that's what I want. I want to believe it.
That's from the movie version of Primary Colors.

Yeah, I watched that movie again. I like it. But that bit up above really stuck with me this time.

Do you remember the US presidential election of 2008? Do you remember all the people hoping for hope? I think the character of Henry, from the movie up above, would have like that election. He would have been out there with the "Hope We Can Believe In" signs like so many others were.

And even though I wasn't one of those people. Even though I called it all bullshit early on, I'm a little bit sad that no one's going to believe, really BELIEVE in a candidate this year.

Julia Nunes Videos

This was the first thing of hers that I saw:

It's an excellent video, I think, especially since it all seems to be done with a web cam. I like the song a lot, too.

This is her newest video from her soon to be released album:

Much more slick, but still wonderful.
