No Day But Today

Wow. So original. I know. But, as I'm sure you can guess, I just saw the film version of Rent. It was really good; it reminded me of why I loved the play so much back when I saw it.

I love the message, the whole idea of "No day but today." I only wish I was brave enough to live up to it, and/or that it wasn't so difficult to do so. But life kind of gets in the way of that, doesn't it? You can't just decide to have good things happen to you and then they do, no matter how hard you work for it. You have to keep in mind the feelings/wants/desires of other people, because almost certainly, they become involved somehow.

Anyway, on a more review-ish note, all of the acting in the movie was fantastic; I was surprised by Rosario Dawson. She's not the best singer ever, but she carried the tunes well, and gave a very enjoyable performance. Jesse Martin, Taye Diggs, and Idina Menzel were as marvelous as you would expect - hell, everyone was. Angel's death was perhaps done even better in the film than on stage, as it's drawn out longer, and you're able to see and feel the anguish more than you can while watching the play. Yes, some of the songs are done differently, or left out, and yes, some of what was sung in the play is spoken in the film, but Christopher Columbus made it work. The cinematography, sets, and costumes were fantastic. I guess what I'm trying to say is: go see it.

Do you ever find that you really want to say something to someone, but you just can't?

I find myself feeling increasingly alone here.

Under two weeks until the LSAT.

It's snowing tonight.
