Who the Von Trapps wish could replace Carrie Underwood in "The Sound of Music Live":
Ok so I DVR'd the Sound of Music last night and played the first few scenes for Gabby before school this morning. By the time she left, she was marching like the Von Trapps and dancing all over the kitchen to Do Re Mi! I see musicals and stage performances in our future! :) Now I need to get a hold of the Julie Andrews version!!
Interesting read that the surviving members of the Von Trapps were almost going to boycott the live performance of Sound of Music because of Carrie Underwood because of her lack of acting talents in favor of Anne Hathaway.
Dr. King and the Dream... The other night I learend that a remake of "the sound of music" was going to be made, and a competition show had been made to cast the movie. Among the competing families for the role of the Von Trapp family was a talented black family. Unavoidably I began to wonder about the "historical" legitimacy of a black family playing the Von Trapps since they were Austrian nobility (Baron) and wondered if there had ever been any black nobles in the Austrian court. A moment later, I thought about Dr. King and thought: Would it not be wonderful if I had never even stopped to muse over the race of an actor playing the role over a historical set? And just focus in their ability to actually act only? Can you imagine the day, say Samuel Jackson could play Abraham Lincoln and no one would think anything but how good a job he did in portraying Abe? Or imagine Matt Damon portraying Dr. King and once more no one would mind save to judge how well he acted? Can you imagine the day a black actor can p ...
That's disappointing. Here I was thinking Michele Bachman had said something stupid about the Von Trapps.
When left we dressed up like Von Trapps and sang "So Long, Farewell." I was Gretel. Role of my life.
"You remember the end of the movie version of The Sound of Music: They hide in the abbey, where Gretl wants to sing about their favorite things, and Julie Andrews kindly but firmly tells her that this is not a good time. (Babies were smothered in the Warsaw Ghetto for less. I’m just saying.) Then Rolf finds them and Christopher Plummer, at his drunkest and most devastatingly handsome, makes him question his heterosexuality in the cemetery until he has no choice but to blow his Freudian whistle of sublimated desire and it’s Dachau for the lot of them — except the nuns somehow know how to take the battery out of the Nazi car and the Von Trapps are able to escape." -Vulture

Mixed bag for me after Semi final 1. I correctly predicted 6 of the qualifiers, but my personal top three all went out. Here’s my thoughts on Semi final 2. These are in order of my personal preference. 1. Norway - As Julie Andrews didn’t sing: “Reverberating bass lines and dodgy translations, stormtrooper dresses and minimal stagings, 80’s revivals with dark hints of strings; these are a few of my favourite things.” Though if she’d been a Eurovision fan with similar tastes to mine, she might well have done (though of course, ‘stormtrooper dresses’ might have meant something different to the Von Trapps). Norway has all of these favourite things of mine, so goes in top of my list for the second semi. I think for once Europe will share my view on this one. Qualification prospects: Nailed On 2. Greece - Lovely stuff from Greece here. Something to get people moving in your seats. High tempo, brass and up strokes combine lovely with some traditional elements, so much as this reminds me o ...
