Ahhhhhhh...Phantom. I'm so completely obsessed now. Can we please go see it ASAP, Mel? I may begin experiencing withdrawal symptoms. It's playing at the Arboretum.
PhantomPhans.net (OK, the whole PH fixation is the downside of this fandom) or some fansite had "That's All I Ask of You" for download as a Valentine's treat...it's so gorgeous. Only it's tripling my insanely strong desire to see it right now!!!!!
Oh...wow. What a movie. Although cleolinda
has ruined it ever so slightly by making a Movies In 15 Minutes presentation of it, thereby pointing out all of the somewhat ridiculous aspects. Such as why Mme. Giry is the only one with a French accent. And how that whole underwater scene of Raoul's was rather pointless. And Christine's daddy issues. But still. What an incredible movie. NOW. I must see it now! I am suppressing the urge to shriek.
By the way *abrupt change of subject*: why don't we have Core tomorrow?
Jeez, I wish I had an iPod already so I could just play this song over and over and over. It's so beautiful even if Raoul is a sissy. I'll take Erik any day.
Also, assuming anyone is actually reading this. What was the whole "hands at the level of your eyes" thing about? I didn't get it.
I wonder where Erik went when C & R left...cos he lived, obviously. *ponders*
EDIT: The joys of Google. "I believe this means holding your hand at the level of your eyes because of the noose. Mdm. Giry tells Raoul to keep his hand there so he will not be hung. Buquet the flyman sings that magical lasso song which is about the phantom and the noose."
ANOTHER EDIT: Raoul totally didn't keep his hand there. Why didn't Erik hang him? Then he could go ravish Christine.
