Welcome to Movie Clip Wednesday. This is hosted by Boxer. To get the rules and to find out what everyone else has going on go to Anonymoust Boxer and check it out.
This week's theme is best broadway musical made into a movie. I could have went with Oklahoma, or Music Man, or any other number of moives my mom made us watch when we only had two channels but not for this. I went with a movie I totally love and that is Grease. There is no question that I still have the hots for Olivia. Why wouldn't I? Aussie chicks are smoking hot. I'm a man who is about to rejoin the dating world and I think she may be on the market. Finally, things are going my way. It's my big chance and I don't want to use some corny line when I first meet her. So what better way to break the ice than tell her I wrote about her in a blogpost. It's not like it's stalking or anything.
MRM "Olivia, it's a pleasure to meet you. I wrote a blogpost about you for a movie clip Wednesday theme."
ONJ "What, because Diane Lane wasn't in a musical."
MRM (coughing uncomfortably but yet remaining suprisingly cool) "Well, techinically she was in Streets of Fire but the theme was best Broadway musical so that didn't qualify. And that's really not her singing."
ONJ "Soooo, I was your first choice."
MRM (God, she's actually buying this crap) "Yes. And I've always like the name Olivia aaaaaaaand Please Mr Please is one of my all time favorites. I've never played B17 on any jukebox out of respect for that song."
ONJ "Laying it on pretty thick. Don't you think?"
MRM "No, I really mean that...........I have no shot do I?"
ONJ " None whatsoever. The Diane Lane love kind of ruined it."
MRM "Well, thanks for reading my blog."
ONJ "You didn't think Princess was the only one in Australia reading now did you?"
Here's to you Olivia. *sigh
BTW, in keeping with my sometimes mini-theme of where I watched this movie for the first time, it was at the drive-in theater in Kalispell, MT when I was on vacation with my best friend's familiy. Fishing in the mountains in the middle of bear country with not a care or worry in the world about what I would do if I met one. Being young and dumb. Those were the days.
I also included a clip here of Carl Anderson singing Jesus Christ Superstar. Just because I like the song and his voice is pretty good. Happy MCW. Welcome back Boxer.
