Dancing with the Phantom ~

Hello all!!

It's been absolutely ages since we've posted on here, and I finally got an idea for a post, so I pounced!!

If you'll remember, Christine was a part of the dance corps when it all began. So, I looked up Phantom of the Opera dancing, thinking that of course at least one of the numerous movies or plays made would have a good dance corps.

Apparently, not.

Maybe it's because I'm personally a dancer, a ballerina actually, but the pictures I was able to pull up were terrible! From what Google has been able to show me, none of the movies made so far have had an even descent dance corps!!! I was so surprised! I mean, honestly. If it was that big in the book, why not in the movie? I don't remember it being a part of the Emmy Rossum movie at all!!!

But anyway, once again it might be because I'm a dancer. How does it effect you? Does it really effect you at all? Is it because it was something you really wanted to see, or is it just because they didn't keep to the book? Or did you even notice?

And here's a little extra, because this is one good picture that I did find on my scavenger hunt.

Be blessed in your endeavors,

A few Quizzes...

I was browsing around quizzes today, and I came across this one: Which Phantom of the Opera character are You?
I came up as Madame Giry. I can't really tell whether to be happy about this or not...
Madame Giry: You're biggest quality is your compassion. You are a mother-like figure to many. People are drawn to you for your wisdom and advise. You do not turn people away, and could never abandon anyone. 

Go HERE to find your results!

Let me know who you come up as!!! I love these things. :D

be blessed in your endeavors,

"No more talk of darkness, 
Forget these wide eyed fears.
I'm here, with you beside you
To guard you and to guide you..."

Look at the Desktop Background on my Laptop...

So, what do you all think? There was also a really pretty option of a picture of Christine and Raoul dancing at the Masquerade Ball, but since Erik is so amazing, I had to go for this picture of him with Christine. I'm really happy with it!!!

Phantom Ice Dancing at the Olymipics

I was reading some old comments and I came across this one in particular:
Blogger Clare said...
hey everyone, I posted her a while perhaps you remember... anyway, I was completely glued to the olympics in vancouver, and i thought of this blog while watching the ice dancing portion. Americans Meryl Davis and Charlie White danced to the Phantom of the Opera and the Music of the Night. If you didn't see it, here's the link: I was really blown away by their performance, but they came in second.

Cassie's Thoughts on 'Love Never Dies'

Even though it is slightly overdue, here are my thoughts on the new Love Never Dies musical.

Of course, I was naturally excited when it came out. It's the sequel to one of the best musicals/books, etc. ever! Andrew Lloyd Webber is a genius and I could only expect spectacular music from him... It had to be wonderful!

Unfortunately, after reading the plot summary from Wikipedia that I posted HERE, I have decided that I will most likely never see the Love Never Dies musical on stage. I hate the fact that they changed Meg's and Madame Giry's characters and that (even though Raoul was never my favorite character) that he was turned into a drunk and a selfish, weak man. Even though he was never the best of characters (he was whiny and jealous) he was always brave and self-less and he truly loved Christine with his whole heart. I also am not fond of the relationship implied between Christine and Erik... just too much going on there with Gustave, etc.

Anyway, with that being said, I must admit that I have heard some of the music already and I think that it is stunning. I'll probably purchase my favorite songs from iTunes, but I will not be listening to the musical as a whole like I do with 'Phantom'. Sorry, 'Love Never Dies' just isn't the same...

Oh! There is a poll on the sidebar asking what you think of 'Love Never Dies' I'd love to see everyone's thoughts, so VOTE! =D
