Must see musicals before you die Top 100


Since we’re learning about Hollywood Musicals in our film class I thought I’d go over the IMDB Top 100 list and see how many I can cross off the list!

These are in no particular order so no debate wars on which musical is better than the other!

Total seen: 31/100 (not bad…)

What is Beyonce talking about?


I think those pictures that Getty took of her are SO flattering!

Come on?

Who doesn’t love a little ZoidBey.

Thanks Comedy Central!

Made my day, that’s for sure.

And for those of you who are curious to see what photos that Beyonce are talking about here is a link to a fellow blogger’s page that has them all posted for you to see.

SacramentoVille: Beyonce photos

And seriously…

Nicki Minaj needs to SHUT IT! You will never be the next Lil’ Kim

That’s right. The exorcising whore has done it AGAIN!

Now she’s being mean to Chris Bosh, REALLY? REALLY?!

What is this bitch’s deal?

At least Chris Bosh has more talent in one arm than Nicki Minaj could ever hope to have in a single molecule in her entire being. Just because you request buckets of fried chicken and you dress like the holy mother doesn’t mean that you’re anything special. Please, who are you kidding?

Everyone’s tired of your wannabe songs filled with the ramblings of your Dissociative identity disorder.

How in the hell are you “winning”? And you threaten to go “Columbine” on people? What the hell?

Bitch you don’t have a label to sign anyone because who gives a fuck? Seriously, who the fuck cares?

If you’re that insecure about yourself that you have to make fun of other people at their tough times I hope everyone laughs when it’s your time to fall. At least Chris Bosh has been to the Finals and is on one of the top NBA teams of the season. Get your shit straight before I go (insert politically incorrect genocide/massacre here) on your ass. Oh wait, no, I’m better than that.

“I hear the slick shit, bitch you washed
all you hoes crying, Christopher Bosh”

In case you wanted to watch it for yourself.

And like her other songs, there is absolutely no rhythm, no sync, and no flow to it. She can go back to working at the Red Lobster where she belongs.

I love you Chris Bosh!

What better movie to watch on Valentines Day than…300?

After work (which was really stressful and irritating) I went to go workout at the gym (which I will get into later) but after that I thought I’d reward myself with a new cd, since I rarely buy CDs or DVDs to be honest with you. And guess what I saw at Amoeba? A Valentine’s Day DVD Sale section and honestly, what more romantic and sexual movie could you ask for than 300? Half naked men proving their man hood, women getting raped right and left. If that doesn’t spell out Valentine’s Day, I don’t know what does. Someone probably just put it there as a joke or just saw it as a place to put a DVD they’ve been having second thoughts about but I found it amusing nonetheless. Or maybe we should just all be watching movies about high school students getting pregnant to get into the mood? Wouldn’t that just be a turnoff? Unless that’s what you’re into…hey, for some people it is. Or maybe what gets some people off is adultery? Who would want to be with scary SVU detective Christopher Meloni anyways right? Haha, just joking. Or maybe now that technology is replacing everything we can appreciate the forming of relationships between real people and artificial intelligence? Who in god’s name picks out these movies? Were these the reject movies that they just want to get rid of that have just the bare minimum to do with love or desire? Yeah, I still stick by my original statement, out of those four movies 300 is probably the most romantic. Is it so hard to put Casablanca? Dirty Dancing? Or even The Notebook for God’s sake.

So what did I end up buying from Amoeba anyways? The new Foster the People album. I wanted a Black Keys CD but the two songs that I really like are on different CDs so instead of suffering a mental breakdown I gave up and bought a Foster the People CD since I’ve had my mind set on it for a while now as well. Can’t win them all I guess. I’ll go back for the other ones some other time. Oh and if you haven’t seen the Black Key’s-Howlin for you music video, it’s amazing! It’s just like Sucker Punch made into a music video, and for those of you that know me know that I NEVER go on youtube so me putting this link on here is hardcore.

And I think I deserve some sort of award for buying stuff on Craigslist and STILL being alive. This kid was selling Saints Row 3 for XBOX360 for $30 so I went to go pick it up since Mark has been wanting to play it for awhile. Like I want to pay $60+ bucks at GameStop. No thank you. I ended up racing an Infiniti G35 on my way to pick up the game. I won. Like always. Hahaha. Scared the shit out of Steven though (the busser at work needed a ride home) but he made it home in one piece. People get so scared when I tell them that I buy stuff off of Craigslist. I know what to watch out for, I’m not THAT stupid. Hahaha but thanks for worrying about me you guys. I can handle myself. Most times it’s just kids selling games so they can have some cash for more games. I’ve actually met the nicest people too.

While I’m still on the topic of V-Day, I didn’t really ask for anything but Mark always knows what to get me so here’s the other gift that he sent.

A Vintage Hard Top Retro Pink Samsonite Suitcase! I absolutely adore it! It’ll be perfect for all the traveling and moving that I’m going to do! My computer and PS3 will be safe and snug in there. (I really need to start playing Call of Duty again but I haven’t had any motivation lately). I still have a lot of stuff I need to pack and clean but I’ll get to it soon enough.

Yay for days off! I have to start on my essay soon…

Made in France!


I’m sorry I haven’t written in my blog in a while.

I’ve been so busy with work and everything.

So I wore these to work Thursday night and everyone loved them!

They stay up perfectly and they’re so warm and nice<3

So Thursday night we had an Industrial Jazz Group play at Royal/T and it was pretty neat.

The music was amazing.

I also realized that Cam knows a lot about musical theater and basketball so that helped pass the time along as well.

All in all it was a smooth night.

The only thing was that I left at like 11:30pm but I was fine with it.


Bye Bye Urinetown!


There were a couple cds I wanted so I stopped by Amoeba.
I got to see Thomas for a split second which was nice.
I picked up the soundtracks to Bye Bye Birdie and Urinetown.
I was listening to the Bye Bye Birdie CD and it’s my new favorite cd for my car! Yay!
Now I’m just waiting for Gia at Haus.


I just got home from working a Jazz Event at Royal T!

Daniel Rosenboom and PLOTZ! were playing tonight and their music was pretty awesome!

They were really nice as well.

All in all it was a smooth evening.

I’m sorry about the lack of blogging today.

I mostly just sat at home watching Moulin Rouge on Netflix.

I forgot how good yet sad that movie was.

Oh Nicole Kidman~

I <3 Amoeba!


I stopped by Amoeba after work to take a look around and look what I picked up!
Mad Men and Oklahoma Soundtrack CDs!



Went to the Silvelake Lounge to see Ihui play and it was soo good! I am so glad I went! Thanks to Eddie for coming as well!

Picture is of Ihui on the keyboard!

Silverlake Lounge


Came to see Ihui’s band perform!

The picture is of Eddie…I didn’t want to use flash. Lolz.
