What I want you to know. Which is everything.

A Photo for Little Reason

I thought it was about dang time to post a picture of Amanda and meself. This is us on our 3rd anniversary going to see the musical Wicked in New York City. I've mentioned this before. She is going to see it without me tomorrow with one of her friends. I will get a movie, I guess. Recomendations? Remember, I'm very picky. Nothing pretentious, weird is okay, as long as the filmaker knows he's being weird and knows that we know it. Funny is usually better, but not without heart and a dark, morbid undertone. I've seen most movies that fall into this category, so if you know something obscure, feel free...

We started rehearsals for Grease today. I like the cast the way it is. I hope it doesn't change (i.e. get bigger) Can I please just direct plays after school and not teach classes?

Have you heard about the new book by Gregory Maguire that is a sequel to his book Wicked (which was the basis for the musical)? It's called Son of a Witch (watch how you say that). It follows the story of OZ after Dorothy and the Wizard have left for good and Elphaba has died.

About new movies, this is definitely not of the genre you are looking for, but you still might like it: Jarhead. I'm sure you've seen the trailers on TV. I usually do not like war movies, but this one looks very good. It stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Jamie Foxx, and Peter Sarsgaard, all of whom I really like. It's also directed by Sam Mendes, who directed American Beauty and the (relatively) recent revival of Cabaret on Broadway about 8 years ago. But you can be sure that this isn't an "off-beat comedy". (I read a review calling it a Platoon for Gen X.-- FWIW)

Very nice picture of you and Amanda. Wish I could see "Wicked".
I saw a trailer for the new movie of "Rent" today. It looks really good and I told Kim I want to see it. Can't remember when it opens.

You sound like Kim...like the play rehearsal, not the classes.

It's a shame we can't get paid for teaching classes that don't have students. And why is it that I can't seem to get free to talk to you and Amanda on Sundays but must rely on this blog?

I watched 4 hours of "I Love the 80s-3D." Although, I did watch two really good romantic comedies in the past week. I will talk more about them later.
