I've ordered the soundtrack anyway based on my faith in that weird little man.


Would it break your heart if I told you it's all an act? He's a very normal, rich white private-schoolboy from a wealthy family, who's still married to his high school girlfriend and mostly a fairly quiet homebody...

Wait, it's been about a week since I saw you, and I've been sick ever since too. IS THIS BUG THAT HAS SWEPT OUR FAMILY IMPORTED?

I think so! I was going to blame you, but I never got around to it. :) Hunter has it now, which is miserable since he won't just sleep through it. I've been up since 11:30 last night.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Hunter's an asshole. ;)

Hey, there were some things that are worth the risk.

Oh, I don't find that hard to believe at all (especially given some of his songs like "Rock and Roll Nerd"). Totally still love the dude.

I was just thinking this is actually some pretty good timing, because my birthday is on Friday, so this is like a special treat. What better way to celebrate than by watching a silly movie?

I have to say I have not seen this movie but I am curious about it. The title alone confused me. Is it a musical set in high school or is it a musical about a high school musical? I guess I'll find out in a few days. Interesting pick Jammer!

Also, now I'm just awaiting talk of Glee and our own high school musical experiences.

It's sort of both, Cam - a musical set in high school but also a musical about the AUDITION for a high school musical. We never get to see the actual musical, just the machinations that go into preparing for callbacks.

I just watched this tonight. My kids loved it and danced like maniacs at the last song. My five year old daughter clapped happily and shouted 'yay hooray!' at the end of every song. We MIGHT have a ton to talk about next week, or we might not. I can't decide yet. It's certainly a thing, that's for sure.

Oh, and Jammer? For picking this, I say...

Yeah, I think it may be more fun to talk about ones that have some issues or are leaning more towards "bad".

but then again everyone in here can have varying opinions so maybe picking more towards "good" OR "bad" won't matter?

I'm not sure if this is what you meant (it's what I thought at first, but now I'm wondering if I interpreted wrong), but I am curious about this any way..

Since we're doing High School Musical... were any of you guys in theater/band/orchestra/choir/any sort of "arts" classes in high school?

I have a feeling like a majority of you guys are creative people, so I was curious.. plus with us all liking musicals I wanted to know some of your guys' creative/music "roots"

I was in visual arts in high school, but I was in "Super Choir" in elementary school, which I really enjoyed. I probably would've kept with choir except I didn't like the choir teacher for middle/high school.

Well, that's some misleading-ass bullshit, and I refuse to watch this movie now.

I was in band and played trombone for almost 10 years. I wanted to be in drama/theater in middle school, but my parents were like, "That's a stupid waste of time."
