soundmusic460ok ok, so maybe i’ve been hating too much.  i’ll continue the series later, when i’m feeling hateful.

so i was watching american idol last night (flipping between the nuggets/lakers game, mind you), and after american idol, there was this new show on.  it’s call ‘glee’.  in case you haven’t heard of it.  for some reason, i really wanted to watch it (while still watching the nuggets/lakers game, mind you).  there’s just something about people singing that i really like.  and that’s when it hit me: i like musicals.

whoa whoa whoa!  did i just say that?  yeah, i did (mind you, i was still watching the nuggets/lakers game).  i grew up watching the sound of music with my mom just about once a week growing up.  i didn’t really understand the movie until just recently when i watched it again, but i enjoyed the singing.  and no, i haven’t watched high school musical (probably cause i was too busy watching a manly basketball game or action movie), but if it came on tv and there was nothing better on, you know… i might uhhh… give it a glance… while switching between you know, like… world series of poker or rambo or something.

i mean, who doesn’t like a good disney movie?  the old school classics were all musicals!  c’mon, “under the sea,” “a whole new world,” “be our guest,” “song from mulan.”  you get the picture.  it’s kinda the best of both worlds: acting performance and music.  or, in disney’s case, animation and music.  what’s not to like?  i haven’t really seen any broadway musicals or anything, but i hear they’re pretty good.

anyone with me?  c’mon, don’t be like me and hate.  btw, the nuggets/lakers game was crazy!

  2. I grew up with Sound of Music too. Watching musicals is great. It’s like wearing pink: only men truly comfortable with themselves are able to do it.

    Just fyi: NEVER listen to the soundtrack before watching a Broadway musical, despite claims that it will help you understand the story when you watch it. Au contraire, it KILLS the story/surprises when you actually watch it.

  4. Hey, stop apologizing. I own all the major disney animation DVDs, and I’m as manly as they come!!! There is NOTHING WRONG with watching fruity Disney animations.
    And yes, Denver/LA game was very entertaining.

  5. omg i must’ve watched the sound of music 100x times or so growing up. i could probably sing all the songs in there… well at least hum it pretty well.
    and the nuggets should’ve won that game.
