Musicals, Musicals, Musicals! (Avenue Q, Sweeny Todd)

I watched Avenue Q here at the Hippodrome in Baltimore with Ting, Simpson, my cousin and his fiance.

It was awesome. With much laughing. And it's also nice to know how the songs fit together now - I had guessed how the stories might have been, but I was wrong in a few places. Puppets were cool. Puppet sex... kinda odd. Stage design was not particularly awesome, at least not compared to, say, Wicked. Granted, I was also sitting in one of the $30 (actually $40) dollar seats, on the third floor. Which made seeing kinda hard-ish.

But it was still very, very awesome. Yay for last minute plans to see it.

Saw Sweeny Todd today, and amazingly, they kept with the plot, and included almost all of the songs* - mind, I haven't listened to the entire soundtrack for a while now, and I've only seen one stage production by WST, I think it was. The movie definitely had a lot of blood. And... I don't know, overall, it was much better than I expected. Despite knowing what was going to happen, I still cringed at the deaths. And the blood.

And, after randomly deciding that we should get a Wii, much thanks to my cousin and his fiance, I (very) randomly came across a Wii at Target. Yay for Wii in stock! Played the included Wii Sports, and borrowed two extra controllers from our neighbors, so the entire family could play.. kinda. But it too, is the awesome. I think it's going to stay at home though, seeing how I'll be a senior, and we have no TV in our apartment. Now we just need to get some good party games (although I think my parents will be fine with Wii Sports) and extra controllers. I kinda want to check online for the downloaded old games. That'd be kinda cool... although it would mean having to buy a handheld controller thingie.

2007 is almost over. Somehow, this is a bit sad.

*Unlike the Golden Compass, which was also pretty, but a painful disappointment in the movie industry.
