Rent



I don't know why my friend Gregory was so crabby about the movie "Rent." He said it was terrible and that it didn't translate well to film.

I, never having seen the Broadway version, thought the movie was great. I really like a lot of the songs, and I thought the film soundtrack sounded better than the original Broadway cast album. Of course, most of the singers are the same anyway. Except that I much preferred Rosario Dawson's film portrayal of Mimi over the Broadway actress.

So here's me thumbing my nose at you Gregory, although I'll still allow you to accompany me for long nights of Broadway belting at Marie's.

I guess I'm not much of a queen, seeing as it took me this long to learn the songs from a major Broadway hit.

You're living in America at the end of the millennium
You're living in America where it's like the Twilight Zone
And when you're living in America at the end of the millennium
You're what you own

Greg likes K. McPhee, so his taste is questionable. LOLOL!! ;-)

You're talking about the Crack Whore. This is a different Gregory, who lives in NY.

Gosh Mindy June, Coaster Punchman is so nice to you, had I made that kind of a mistake I would certainly be punished by any number of painful torturous devices akin to the Taliban (e.g. eating all the desert in the house, sleeping in front of the TV until I go mad, multiple viewing of any one of 5 movies with femme fatales, general ranting and raving. You are so lucky!
