I thought Livejournal wasn't going to let me post, but apparently the posting page is alright. It's the user info page that seems to be borked. But anyway....

I seem to still be wanting to talk about Les Miz, probably because I still have the music stuck in my head. I keep looking up videos on YouTube, which isn't helping my Les Miz earworms go away.
 
Here's the link for this embed in case the embed doesn't work. I never can tell if they're going to. (Also I "shared" this link on Facebook yesterday - for some reason - so some of you may have seen it already.) Anyway, the thing is, I thought "Bring Him Home" was easily Jackman's weakest number. Maybe he was going for the tortured effect deliberately, who knows - but it certainly sounded sort of tortured, like he was having trouble hitting those notes. And that really struck me when I listened to somebody who seemingly hits those notes effortlessly. The gentleman singing it here is apparently named Alfie Boe, and since this is from the Brit awards, I'm guessing he's from a recent London cast. And you get Samantha Barks and the big choral numbers besides.



Okay,so it's New Year's Eve and everybody's writing about resolutions. I don't really do resolutions because I immediately forget about them and they're just gone into the void, but if I did it would be the same kind of thing everybody says. Lose some weight (in fact I have lost about 10 pounds over the last couple of months, but I need to lose at least a bit more), take better care of my money, exercise more, the usual stuff. As far as today, I am going to do some work this afternoon and then we will probably just watch TV tonight. I hate dodging the drunks so I don't like to go out on NYE and neither does Rob. So we stay home and play games or whatever and be hermits. I've got the Rose Parade queued up to tape in case I sleep late.

I might write one more entry if I get going later. I have time to get it in under the wire tonight! (I've slacked off on the posting for Holidailies but I'll have 28 entries or so which I think is decent enough!)
