What do you think?
We're having a talent show here at theatre school and the comittee for deciding what is appropriate needs to decide on belly-dancing. Most of the Christians do not agree with it being a viable option for an act and most of the non-christians do. I can't discuss it at length right now because I have class in 7 minutes so tell me how you feel.

Kiss Me Kate

We watched that last night because we are watching three adaptations of The Taming of the Shrew, first we watched a strict stage production of The Taming of the Shrew, last night we watched a musical called Kiss Me Kate and I think tomorrow we are watching 10 Things I Hate About you which is cool because I love that movie!
After we've watched all three our teachers will put forth an assignment to compare and contrast the three movies and I have chosen to compare Katerina (or her various counterparts in the other movies) and Petrucio's relationship. Fairly standard and not really imaginative but I'm including some technical elements like that Kiss Me Kate was very modern to it's time. There were fifties (it was shot in '53) references like gangsters and what not in the play they were performing and the dancing was all modern. All in all both very fairly good movies (because I'm really one to judge ;)) although The Taming of the Shrew was bloody freaking long. Well I have general session in 15 minutes and class in 45 so I'll talk to you all later!

Long gone

Hello my faithful or first time readers! How are you? Its been awhile hasn't it? I'm sorry I've left you drifting for so long. School got hectic and I had no time! It was all escaping too fast. At any rate, I am back now at least for the time being.
I recently watched The Taming of the Shrew. Interesting movie, the end was most dissatisfying. Katerina have gone soft and letting Petrucio win his bet at her expense. Although I can't help wonder if Kate herself didn't demand some sort of payment when they were away from the rest of the buffoons like The Guardian.
I am very very tired so I bid you all adieu (hopefully I spelled that right) and goodnight.
