I realized my last post made it sound like I HATED La La Land but I didn't hate it. I gave it 3 stars on Letterboxd and even clicked the "Like" button LOL.

I keep talking about it like it was a misbehaving child - no, La La Land, I don't hate you, I'm not mad, I'm just...disappointed. I expected more from you.

I put on West Side Story this afternoon because I wanted some more dancing and singing and it was a rainy miserable day anyway so another two hours in front of the TV was inevitable.

The perfection was later when we watched Jimmy Fallon read hashtags and he made a reference to the Jets and Sylvia cracked up. I was like "you wouldn't have understood that joke if we hadn't watched the movie today!" LOL. I'm all about exposing that child to popular culture.

Also, it is really upsetting how relevant West Side Story still is. I mean, the lyrics to America could be from a musical written in 2017. Has anyone done a modern day restaging? Because they should.

Anyway, need to get to bed. Tomorrow is my cat's dental surgery so I need to wake up early to drop her off. Then hopefully we will have some fun with friends who have a campsite up in Gettysburg. Just visiting for the day. **crosses fingers that the rain clouds will float away overnight**

Agreed about how relevant it still is. I'd say the restaging needs to move out of NY and to Texas instead.
