Off Book is a podcast that my boyfriend recommended to me several times. I am not great at taking recommendations, so I didn’t listen to him. But two weeks ago we were headed on an hour long drive, and he told me that he downloaded the first episode for us to listen to. Begrudgingly, I agreed.
I love nothing more than a good musical. You know this, I know this, and everyone who knows me know this. I’ve been hearing about Mean Girls the musical for quite some time, but the music was finally released on Spotify, and I’ve been able to take it in as a whole.
I am so incredibly late to this party. Last night I was getting ready to fold laundry, and looking for something to watch while I did. Galavant came up in our “recommended” section, so I figured I would check it out. I’m so freaking happy that I did.
Fangirls, my mum has been suggesting this show to me for months, and during my sick time last week, I finally started watching it. It’s a show about (you guessed it) a crazy ex-girlfriend. A bit of a sexist term to use for the show, but that’s addressed in the theme song.
Fangirls, I love musicals. I also love animated movies. Bonus: I love talking animals. Sing was practically made for me. Coming from the team behind Secret Life of Pets and Despicable Me, Sing seems like the answer to Disney’s Zootopia; a story set in a world without humans. It stars an adorably crafty koala, who is on his last ditch effort to save his theatre. He hopes that by creating a singing competition (where auditions were open to the public), he would be able to sell out the theatre and settle some of his debts. Unfortunately, the flyers made for the competition had some extra 0’s in them, so the grand prize is advertised as $100,000 instead of $1,000. Oops.
Fangirls, I have wanted this book for almost a year now, since I saw the Tony Awards with a scene from the musical based off of this comic. I never bought it because it wasn’t at the forefront of my mind until I had left the comic shop. Luckily, my girl Ashley knows me incredibly well, and bought it for me for Christmas. It took me awhile to get to it, but once I did, I didn’t stop.
Fangirls, I love musicals more than anything. They’re my favorite type of entertainment; on the stage, through my earbuds, on my television, I want to experience them constantly. Since Christmas last year, I had been wanting to see the new version of Annie, starring Quvenzhané Wallis. When I rented it from iTunes to watch with my mum the other day, I was anything but disappointed.
