High School Musical 2 - People Magazine Scans and My Random Thoughts On It
A couple of weeks ago I posted about my trip to Safeway where I saw and bought The High School Musical 2 Edition of People Magazine. Little did I know that that little post would bring a lot of visitors to my blog through Google. I mean lots! I am pleased to see that because I love High School Musical. So to honor those who visited my blog to view my post on the magazine, I embedded the above scans. I did not do it. I found it at YouTube. I thought many of you who missed buying the magazine would enjoy seeing that video (slide show) above :)
Why do I like High School Musical a lot? I think it's because it's "clean" compared to other so called high school movies. I still remember watching the American Pie movie with my husband several years ago (1999) and being so disgusted with the movie. My husband thinks it's funny but I couldn't get past it's too much focus on sex. Some may say "oh, but that's how High School is" ... oh no... not before...and not for my kids...especially not for my daughter. I want my kids to enjoy high school life without being too pre-occupied with sex like that movie American Pie portrayed. I dislike that movie very much. I was disgusted with it. But the "High School Musical"...I think it's great! It promotes self-esteem - being comfortable with who you are, teamwork, friendships and more. I love the songs too. Most are upbeat and easy to sing along. It is so refreshing and encouraging to see that this movie/DVD is a phenomenal success. Hopefully, other producers will be encouraged to come up with wholesome shows like this.
There was one teenage forum I visited when one poster was so annoyed that the others are soo goo goo ga ga over the High Musical. She wrote "why are you so excited about that - it's made for 3rd graders!". I had to smile at that comment because my dd, N, is in 3rd grade and she absolutely likes it. The thing is, it's not only the 3rd graders that like it. It's a lot of people from age 2 to 82. I am not kidding nor exaggerating. I've met some of those people...and I've seen them on forums too.
Just one more week before the showing of High School Musical 2 - we can't wait!
Oh my gosh .. I just remembered - we do not have cable!!! I think we'd be visiting friends with cable that Saturday night (August 17th, right?)... I'm pretty sure we will. We might even stay for a sleep over :)
OK, I know I don't usually get a lot of comments. But I'd still try this time. I mean, I'd like to ask you - do you like High School Musical? why? why not?
