24 hr. Eucharistic Adoration

Great vid & song from

Beyoncé - If I Were A Boy (link)

Can't post the vid, but can post
the link to it. I'm more of a music
person, as I can't always catch
the lyrics - & at first the words to
this song were kind of confusing.
However, the melody & Beyoncé's
beautiful singing drew me to the
video, which makes the meaning

Am actually more familiar with
the work of Beyoncé's sister
Solange Knowles, from the enter-
taining cheerleader-themed movie
(yes, you heard right),
Bring It On:
All or Nothing (2006),
Gus Carr & a hilarious (IMO)
performance by
Heroes star
Hayden Panettiere - talented
performers all.

Happy Birthday, Gerard Butler!

From one of your many Phantom phans! :D

Having only been recently introduced to the

character of Erik (the Phantom), I found it
to be an extraordinary story that shook me
to my roots. I'd of course heard of the
1925 silent movie starring the great Lon
Chaney as The Phantom of the Opera, based
on the 1910 Gaston Leroux novel, Le Fantôme
de l'Opéra. The story that struck me, however,
was the 2004 version starring Gerard Butler,
Emmy Rossum, Patrick Wilson, Jennifer
Ellison, & Miranda Richardson - directed by
Joel Schumacher, with an outstanding score
with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, and
lyrics by Charles Hart.

I like musicals when they are well done.
IMO, this had everything I look for in a tale
well told, & then some.
