musicals.

November 23, 2008

springawakening

On Thursday I went to the Ahmanson Theatre to watch Spring Awakening the musical. Spring Awakening is a musical that has won 8 Tony Awards and they deserved each of them. It was just amazing. I had seen a version of this play before and for me it was alright. Granted when I first saw it, the play was not turned into a musical. The musical version was so well done and had such a modern twist to the music and brought a good sense of humor, which was very refreshing. The story line of this play is not true only about the time it was written in, but also for today. The play dealt with adolescence, temptations, and the uninformed lives they live in because it was taboo to talk about things like sex. This play can evoke many emotions. Well it could have just been me, but I’d like to think anyone can relate to any of the subjects the play touches.

I highly recommend that you catch this musical while its in your area. Right now its in LA until December 7.

amazement

October 18, 2008

I saw something ridiculously amazing last night on Jimmy Kimmel during his like monologue.  He was making fun of the video above.  Since, the one I saw was not the real one I searched for the real video. This women is amazing. She took her disablitiy and threw it out the window and not let it affect her. She is a true inspiration. I have all my fingers and I can even come close to playing the piano as beautiful as she does.  Hee-ah Lee has only four fingers and she can play te piano like I have never seen. It is just amazing what determination can do.

Seeing her brings a new perspective to my life. I should not let my pety obstacle stand in the way of what I want to do.

unknown interviews..

September 20, 2008

So I was just googling images. Cause I was trying to put album covers on all of my songs on itunes and i came across the image above.  I clicked on it to find out my teachers from when I danced Tahitian were interviewed by a magazine.  I danced with the group for a good 5 years, but I had danced since I was about 8.  Polynesian dancing became and essential part of my life, which I miss so much.  The practices, the people, culture, competitions I miss it all.  The rush of going out and dancing like you have never danced before its great (for lack of better words).  Right about when I had to stop dancing they started up this new concept, theme and show called Amerikanesia.  It was about our story.  The story of our group, the dancers, who we were.  I was apart of the first original show before it got reformed and made it big.  With the improved form of the show they were asked to perform in Vegas at Planet Hollywood.  The group is doing big things, not that it wasn’t before.  I am so proud of them.  We faced adversity with this show because it was so different.  I am glad they are getting recognition for being bold and going beyond the traditional norm.

GOOD LUCK NONOSINA!!!  I love and miss you all.

New Seasons.

September 11, 2008

So the new season of Grey’s Anatomy is coming in about two weeks from today.  I really can’t wait.  It looks like its going to be a good one.  If you haven’t seen it here it is.  I was a bit shocked after seeing it.

There are so many shows starting up again that I will not be able to keep up with all of them.  I am going to get overwhelmed by the many shows that I take interest in.  Maybe I should cut back in the amount of tv I watch, but I can’t really help it.  Good thing some shows are available on the internet, so hopefully I will be able to watch everything I want to.

New Shows.

September 9, 2008

This season there is a vast array of new up and coming shows.  Just caught the new JJ Abrams show called Fringe.  This show has a very LOST feel to it. The opening scene started like LOST with an airplane experiencing turbulence. They have one of the LOST characters Matthew Abaddon playing one of the main characters Phillip Broyles.  Even down to some of the score to the show sounded like something you would hear while watching lost. It is a very good show very interesting. Its about the government trying to figure out who is behind these set of patterns of events that have been happening.  Another show I caught today was called “Hole in the Wall” which was taken from the Japanese show. Its hilarious. Its hosted by Brooke Burns and Mark Thompson.  But nothing can beat the Japanese version.

I think I watch too much tv, but oh well whatever keeps me sane, right?

lies.

September 6, 2008

Okay, I may have lied to you all about the highlight of my week.  I apologize.  It was just all the stress I was having the first few days of school, trying to get into my classes. =/ So getting a shout out just stood out more than the other things that brought joy to my life (besides the great boyfriend J Diaz).

So the season premier of Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill and America’s Next Top Model I must say were up to par.  Let’s start with Gossip Girl. The possibility of Dan and Serena getting back together. I just love it. Nate being in an affair, YIKES!!!!  Blair and Chuck I am not a big fan of them getting together but the tension and drama of it all very entertaining. I feel like this season is going to be good.

I am so happy it was Peyton that Lucas called.  I mean I knew that it would be her, but for it to finally be confirmed was good.  I was so happy that I screamed when it was her. I feel so bad for Brooke though.  Man her mom just sucks. And to top it all of she gets beaten up.  Nathan and Haley look happy.  Sucks for Dan, Crazy Carrie has him locked up.

America’s Next Top Model was typical Tyra Banks, out there.  I have my favorites all ready.  Looks like it will be a interesting season well most of them are.

Cannot wait until all of my shows come back.
