Fly With Me June 8, 2009

Hey All! Tonight I want to talk about my favorite boys.

First off: The premiere of their music video for Fly With Me was on the Disney Channel tonight. Even though the video wasn’t flashy or have a cool story-line and looked like it was made during their rehearsals, it was amazing! I think that it was perfectly Jonas Brothers. The video was exactly who they are. It was relaxed and fun. Joe’s facial expressions, the behind the scenes clips, Nick at his white piano, it was perfectly Jonas. I like how they let us in on the work they are doing for the tour. To see the turn table stage in action was amazing and really really cool. 

I really liked the video because it reminded me why I liked the Jonas Brothers to begin with. Their music is amazing, they are extremely talented, they always want to go bigger and better in bringing their work to their fans. They are simple, fun loving guys who happen to make music we all can relate to. They have family and friends who love them and support them. Yes, they draw crowds and attention, but for three young guys in an EXTREMELY loose entertainment business, they seem to have their heads in the right places. Someday I hope to meet them *away from the crowds maybe* and find out for myself that they really do have their heads on straight and that it’s not all the Disney Giant speaking in-through them. They are boys, they are young men in a very VERY fast paced world and they will fall because they are not perfect, but they will get back up and learn. Just because they are in the public eye all the time doesn’t mean they are exempt from making mistakes. They are doing the best they can with the lives they have been given and while I don’t know from experience, I can guess that being in the light all the time is not an easy job. 

So thanks again boys, for doing what you are doing! You are amazing young men *even the Frankster* and I think that you guys are on a great track. Thanks for being an inspiration to us all! Thanks for creating a family out of your band and not just be the Jonas Brothers with some back up band…thank you for being The Jonas Brothers *including band and all!*.  Just remember that you have all of us fans out here supporting you as well. You treat us great and for that, I respect you guys more than I respect any other celebrity!

 

A Quick Shout out to Mr. John Taylor who made his TV debut tonight on JONAS! You did a great job John! Hope to see more of you and the band the rest of the season!

Carter Burwell’s Music = amazing February 24, 2009

To know I am a fan of Twilight, you must know that I am a fan of the music. Some people may disagree but I thought the music in the film fit perfectly with the characters and so on.

The score was composed by Carter Burwell. Burwell has worked on many movies including A Knight’s Tale and The Big Loebowski. But this is very different for him, I feel. 

Today in my History of Musical Theatre class, we talked about music like we do a lot. My teacher said, “If you want to know people, you listen to their music.”  And I swear like falling apple, it hit me. Another reason why Twilight is something the draws me like no other. Carter Burwell writes music that is strikingly beautiful. If you listen to it, who do you feel. Listen to it without the movie and you can feel every emotion that is going on. Mostly: Love. Love and fear of the future, but mostly LOVE. I am drawn to this. Why? I do not know. Maybe because I long for it. I long for a love like no other. 

I listen to Carter Burwell’s music for Twilight and wonder how he captured such beauty. I wish I could meet him and ask him. What inspired you?  I know what would inspire me…the beauty and mystery of Edward. How eager Bella is. The tenderness and care Edward takes with the one he loves, as do all the Cullens. The fear of other’s finding out. The danger that Bella presents to Edward and so on. The music is not eerie and scary. It was very much classical victorian vampirish to an extent. But how BEAUTIFUL! How precious. Shhhh listen. Tell me, what do you hear?

I love it. I simply love it. What do you guys thing?
