Searching for the next Elle Woods….still and some Jo Bros stuff June 24, 2008

WOAH! Tonight we got a bit of a curve ball. 2 girls went home instead of one. HORRAY!!! Cassie S. is gone. If it was one person on the entire show that I could not stand she was it. She was just super stuck up and thought she was the best. She was good, but others were better and she just couldn’t take it. Sorry babe but you are FINALLY gone.

Ok so I missed the first 15 minutes of the show, but I thought that Autumn had the most chemistry with the dogs! I’m glad she got to go meet Richard Blake. I was also happy that Richard was on the show. He’s a great dude and he also gets to play all the Jerk boyfriend roles in every show he’s in. I thought it was so cute how he had roses for the girls and chatted with them. I don’t think it helped Autumn any though, the chemistry she thought she had with him, just wasn’t there.

I don’t have a Paul Canaan quote for tonight because I really wasn’t paying attention. I will say this about the Broadway Diva, YOU LOOK BEAUTIFUL!!! Paul was dressed so beautifully tonight. I am a sucker for pinstripes and the combo with his hair highlights was AWESOME! Mad props on your outfit choice Paul. Def, lovin you!

We shall see what next week will bring. I’m glad that Emma sang great though sick and that Lauren is still in.


So I am going to admit this on my blog. I am becoming a fan of the Jo Bros. Yes the Jonas Brothers have begun to steal my heart. 21 years old and I like the Jonas brothers. It’s not that bad. They have a good sound, great songs, and seem like awesome guys.

Honestly, I think it all started with Joe Jonas and his Camp Rock tight pants. Haha that maybe had something to do with it, but the clincher for me was Play My Music. It’s a really good song!




We…Rock? June 21, 2008

Those who know me know that I am an avid Disney fan. I mean I am spending an entire semester in Disney World. So here is my review of the newest Disney Channel Original Movie: Camp Rock.

For the most part this was a good movie. The music was pretty good and the story, well wasn’t quite original but it was sweet none-the-less. 

So basically this girl gets to go to this camp because her mom is the new cook there and she gets to go for half price. THis ROCK CAMP is full of kids who have rich parents and are extremely good in the music department. So gets mixed in with the wrong clique but finds herself in the end realizing it isn’t worth it. She even gets the guy….kind of.

So here we go. What did I find wrong with this movie:

1. During “Gotta Find You” Joe is supposedly singing acoustic to Demi by the lake to get her opinion. However, there are backup vocals during the chorus. WHAT WERE YOU THINKING? It might sound good and kids probably won’t realize what is going on, but still….it ruins the effect. 

2. I love Demi Lovato, don’t get me wrong. She has a great voice and she’s cute as can be. BUT: she either can’t dance or the choreographer was on crack. The dancing did not do her justice. Seriously. One day she is going to look back on this movie and go….seriously I did that?

3. During the Final Jam when the character of Margret comes out to sing her song, she isn’t really playing the guitar. It really really bothered me. DISNEY COME ON! YOU CAN BE BETTER THAN THAT. Just because the movie is Camp ROCK doesn’t mean you can have people fake rocking. She would have been better off with a mic and a stand. However, it did remind me a bit of Tiffany Taylor’s song in CAMP where she sings “Here’s who I stand, here’s who I am”.  She has a good voice, I would have liked the focus on that rather than the non-guitar playing.

4. The dancing during “We Rock” could have been a lot better. There was one point when Joe Jonas looked like he either had to pee really bad or take a poo. I was like you all are so much better than that.  


Disney could have done better. I guess you can’t ask for much, but after High School Musical you expect way way more.

The movie was good but as Walt Disney said, “You’re dead if you only aim for kids. Adults are just kids grown up, anyway.”

While Camp Rock didn’t market just to kids, I feel like they were in an “only kids are going to watch this so lets do a horrible job editing and being creative with it” mentality.

The Jo bros were cool tho.


I should make a bit of a disclaimer: I liked this movie. I thought it was pretty good. I just noticed things that went a bit wrong. I really liked the scene at the end when Demi and Joe go into the duet. It’s pretty sweet and they blend nicely. They would make a cute celeb couple.
