Yeeeeeah. [livejournal.com profile] seimaisin and I went to see the filmed-for-movie-theaters last performance of RENT on Broadway tonight. And there may have been tears. And I may have been inspired to come home and immediately buy tickets from the not-so-secret presale for [livejournal.com profile] taylorea and I to see the RENT tour when it's here in March. Yes, the same tour I already have front row tickets for with [livejournal.com profile] seimaisin. Now I'll also be seeing it from the 2nd row of the balcony. That's the farthest I've even been from the stage for RENT. Clearly, I'm spoiled.

If I wasn't already totally in LOVE with Eden Espinosa, I would be after seeing her tonight. She's so amazing!

Holy crap the Twins won again!! \O/

HOLY CRAP. I just snagged front row center tickets for [livejournal.com profile] seimaisin and I for the final RENT tour (with Adam Pascal & Anthony Rapp). FRONT ROW CENTER. I am seriously going to be bawling my eyes out. I almost am right now because I'm so damn excited about it!

I keep going back to the order page and re-reading it to make sure I'm not imagining it.

I went to see RENT again tonight. The South African Idol guy was out for the performance and his understudy went to the Drama School of Overacting. Also, he missed a whole entire line. BAD. Mark sounded much stronger tonight because I think he figured he was going to have to hold the whole damn thing together. Collins kinda sucked again. Benny, Maureen and the female soloist were awesome. I managed to stop myself from buying the $65 hoodie. Bren & I had a lovely time out. In fact, we're going to hang out for a third day tomorrow as we're going to watch the RENT movie and maybe talk some Doctor Who. =) I'll try to remember to take some new photos of Henry.

Dammit. The 2009 RENT tour with Adam & Anthony is not coming here! I see a trip to either Detroit or LA in my future for next year.

Okay, I don't watch Psych, but that "Ebony & Ivory" commercial is the best damn thing on television right now. ♥

I managed to sleep most of the day and now I'm not tired at all. This is bad. =/

Point 1 - Not one, but two people asked if we still had Valentine's items/cards out while I was at Hallmark last night. *eyes calendar* Nope, I didn't just get transported a week back in time. I'm pretty sure the first lady was just looking for discounted crap, but the 2nd one honestly thought I was going to start digging through boxes of packed up cards for her. Yeah...not happening.

Point 2 - A big sign was in our window advertising an available management position. Hmmmmmm. The cow-worker I took over for was surprisingly ungossipy about it, so I had to track down other people to find out what was going on. Our manager, who I couldn't stand, quit yesterday morning. I think she's doing her 2 weeks though, as she was still on the schedule. It'll be interesting to see who they'll be able to hire with dirt wages and no bennies.

Point 3 - An ambulance just arrived and a paramedics wheeled a stretcher into the department next to mine. I'm trying to care, but I can't stand any of those people, so it's not working out very well. I'm just glad they weren't here for Kristin, who just got back from having a baby and battling cancer at the same time.

I'm picking up my Rent DVD after work today. Yay!!

I'm just home from my second viewing of Rent. *le sigh* I'm not going to say anything spoilery. And I'm not going to nitpick the changes. Chris Columbus did a very, very good job of converting the show to film. I completely LOVED it!!!

"Tango Maureen" was PURE perfection! I don't know how it could have been done any better. Mark and his dorky dance moves there and in "La Vie Boheme" were fab! Everyone did a great job. But truly, Jesse L. Martin MADE the movie with Collins. I cannot rave about him enough! Loved, loved, loved him!! "Merry Christmas, bitches!" indeed.

The midnight showing was packed! The theater fell completely silent once the movie started, but cheering happened when Jonathan's name appeared on screen. There was some mooing, but no singing, thankfully. And there was certainly a lot of sobbing all around. I'm glad I brought a kleenex box for us to share.

So, of course, I want to see it again. If anyone wants to go this weekend, let me know when & where!

We're leaving for the midnight showing of Rent RIGHT NOW!!!! 5 years of waiting and it's all finally coming true. YAYYYYYY!!!
leighblack: (Nigel - squee)

Annnnnnnnd...the fact that Faster is redoing "Out With a Bang" is orgasmic, as it's one of my favorite songs and I'm dying to hear it live.

Something very, very odd did happen today. I have to think about it for a little while before I write about it.

Wilson & Tracie are TOO adorable! And I seriously want to have JLM's babies. Idina needs to not do that thing with her neck.
leighblack: (Rent Movie - Utter Joy)
There is going to be a midnight showing of Rent in the Cities!! It's down at some theater in Lakeville. I've got to figure out if I really want to go though, as I wouldn't get home until 3am and no one will probably be able to go with me. I can wait until noon on Wed, right? =/

Have you all d/l'ed the video for "Out Tonight"?? Because, YOU SHOULD! RIGHT NOW!!! There's sooooo many new scenes!! *loves*

This is bad though, because this is one of the happy songs and I still teared up while I was watching it. I'm going to be such a wreck at my first viewing of the movie. And probably the 2nd and 3rd too.

Reed Diamond and a commercial for Rent?? Best.Law & Order.Ever

Actually, except for those two things and Ed running, I haven't been paying attention. I have no idea what's going on.
leighblack: (Rent Movie - Utter Joy)

Here's the direct link for the Collins video clip. Of course, I can't watch it at work, but I'm sure it's amazing. Because it's Collins!

Look what came in the mail today!!

It's my Jesse L. Martin bear!! *loves* And it's for a good cause, since the money goes to the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. And...

It looks adorable next to the Jeremy Kushnier bear I got last year.

Since I'll probably forget to post this later, good wishes and fair weather to [livejournal.com profile] duckduck on her trip to Florida to be a hardcore fangirl see Serenity and visit friends.

And on not so good news, I think my car is dying. =(
leighblack: (Rent Movie - Utter Joy)

Wheeeeeeeeeee!!!! I got the Collins cover!!! *love*

Other things I bought today:
- The new Sheryl Crow CD
- [livejournal.com profile] dazeebean's birthday present
- The new Lisa Kleypas book
- More candy for the cow-workers
- Various household items
- A one-way trip to Texas for a copy of Sunday's Crossing Jordan

That was a bust! I tried Best Buy, Circuit City, Borders, Barnes & Noble and Target and none of them had the Rent soundtrack. *kicks podunk suburb* I'm fairly confident that the Best Buy near my house will have it. If not, either the huge BB or Borders out in Woodbury will. But I need it NOW!! *whines*

ETA: I just called the Best Buy in Inver Grove and there's now a copy waiting for me to pick it up! *yay*
leighblack: (Rent Movie - To Days of Inspiration)
I wonder if anyone would notice if I snuck out to Best Buy to get the Rent soundtrack?? Technically, I was here a little bit late yesterday, so a little bit longer lunch wouldn't be so horrible. It's a sickness, but I NEED to have it RIGHT NOW!

Reminder to self: Don't listen to "I'll Cover You - Reprise" while zipping down the highway at 75 mph. It always makes you cry, no matter how many times you've heard it! Tears + hurtling through traffic = bad idea.

I'm bored out of my mind. Work has been slooooooooooow this week, which is weird since last week was hopping. I'm taking Friday off since I still have way too many vacation days that I have to use before the end of the year. I plan to spend the day sleeping, doing my laundry, making [livejournal.com profile] glammastar's CDs, and reading the book for bookclub on Monday.

To kill some time, how about some TV reviews? )

That's about it for the reviews. Jesse will be back on Law & Order tonight, which makes me extremely happy! Is it Sunday night yet??? I need new CJ!!

I won!

I won [livejournal.com profile] laughingirl's Jesse L. Martin autographed bear!! *happy dance* It'll look adorable next to the Jeremy Kushnier bear I won last year.

I'm going to own something JLM touched! *swoon*
