Sleepover and the Phantom of the Opera Movie
> Sleepover!
Yay~ My first sleepover since... elementary school, third grade. Or was it fifth grade? Second sleepover in my entire life. Mmmm. ::hugs Sis:: Thanks for having me over.
Let's see.. stayed up 'til 5 watching movies (Robin Hood Men in Tights, The Producers "Springtime~ for Hitler~ and Germany~!", and Soul...something or other "Do you believe in the power of the soul?"), then went to sleep in jeans and what I had been wearing 'cause I left my pajamas in school, not expecting to need them, woke back up at 10ish~ Looked dazed and more confused than usual for a good while through breakfast, then was summoned home due to changed plans to eat out with family friends.

Lunch was at some restaurant. Ok food, I guess... then
> Phantom of the Opera, 2004 Movie

Which was very disappointing. Well, no. Not really. I lie. The ending was good.. some stuff was rushed, bit and pieces were disconnected, but overall, it was shiny and pretty. Didn't like their way of presenting past and future, 'though the transitions were nice.

What I hated most was the fact that most of the actors didn't actually sing the musical parts. Yes, I know it's hard to find matching pretty voices with pretty faces with good acting skills, but they managed to do it for the major guy roles. The girls... 'specially Christine, didn't look like they were singing AT ALL. Watching them lip-sync was painful, at times. I'm pretty sure the phantom actually sang all of his parts. Raul (sp?) sang some of his... Mmmm, yeah. Foooooooo.

Actually all of the people except Charlotta sang themselves. They just had a hard time dubbing over their own voices.

Oh. Silly them, then.... silly silly actors~

Hm. Maybe I'll see PotO at some point.. certainly, it's pretty common to have actors lip-sync their way through, but obviously, much more satisfying when you know it's their own work. (Even if, of course, they're still lip-syncing :)

Although, given that Scott Bakula can evidently sing very well, given his performance in Cats Don't Dance (or do they?), I was always awaiting reports of a musical number in on the bridge of the Enterprise. ^_^ (I'd have actually watched that episode!)

Very peaceful day here (mostly) - when I finally arose, I found the rest of the menagerie had gone out for the day, leaving me able to peacefully enter some semblance of consciousness. Then, some more video capturing from the travel and zoo tapes I've accumulated, ready for posting sometime. Yay! Probably on my ISP's webspace, so as not to subject people to my connection's modest outbound bandwidth, though I may well host the gallery software and suchlike locally anyway, just to get to play with PHP and so on.

Yay for the Producers! You should have sleepovers more often. It's good times. Having them. In general.

I should~ but most of my friends (well, in high school anyways... in collage, dorms are too small to have sleepovers, although I've slept in someone else's room (and bed) before) are girls, so there's the thing about me being a guy, and thus dangerous to beloved daughters. (Where as, in reality, if I did try to do something, I'd get beaten up rather quickly... and if someone did want to do something to me, I'd probably scream like a girl and run away~ ^^;; )
