Mmm, nostalgia. - GROWL — LiveJournal
Mmm, nostalgia.
I've been wanting the soundtracks to Grease 2 and The Rocky Horror Picture Show on CD for FOREVER. Had them on cassette, but, well... yeah.

So, with the last of my Christmas money/gift certificates, I picked them both up! Eee!

Makes me want to to do a Broadway/musical themed broadcast on RFM one of these Fridays! I have PLENTY of CDs/mp3s to work it.

In other news, I started a Christopher Pike series: Final Friends. Yes, I'm reading a 12-year-old reading level book series. And I LOVE it. After reading novels where the author is either trying to sound pretty and failing miserably, to authors... just sucking, it's a relief to just sit back, grab a snack, and spend a quiet couple of hours reading something that is just a fabulous vacation.

Now, I've always been an R.L. Stine fan since I was a kid. I grred at Christopher Pike back then because he was, in my opinion at the time, his nemesis! So, yeah, this is my second book read by him in my lifetime. (I read Chain Letter way back when out of curiosity. I don't recall being especially awed. But, well, I doubt that was his goal.) But I'm so glad I picked it up! (Yay for coldfury owning the series... I hope that wasn't a hush-hush fact...)

Oh! I also finished Jane Eyre. How much do I completely adore this book? The second read was just as wonderful as the first was when I was in high school. And the ending is so very MORBID. I LOVE it! I mean, it's a good ending, but it's so very messed up too.

(And I just realized I had this open after ignoring it for an hour, so I suppose I should post this now!)

Let's just pretend the post had an ending that sounded... final! Yeah! Like this, we'll make me babbling on about endings be the, uh, ending! WHOO.

Current Mood: bouncy bouncy
Current Music: Grease 2 soundtrack - "Prowlin' "

6 purrs or Purr for me

I think, in order to be a real RFM DJ, you HAVE to have done a musicals show. The only regular ones who haven't are Cyohtee and Mecha.

Sweet. Well then, that decides it! After a couple sessions of getting used to what I'm doing, it shall be!

I haven't done a musicals show because my show lasts 29512459814598 hours. I have gleefully done JCS and other musical 'blocks', but I don't have anything everyone else doesn't. Except JCS. Which everyone hates. >_> <_< -Mecha

That's because JCS sucks. It's Cats with Jesus crammed in it.

I read some Christopher Pike books back in the day. Good stuff. If I still had them I'd probably read them again.
Jane Eyre was awesome too. The woman in the spare room thing creeped me out so much that it just made the whole book better.

Mrs. Pool? Yeah, she was very creepy! It was her laugh for me. *Shudder*
