Guilty Pleasures

Obsess over Harry Potter, regale us with Fluffy's latest escapades, ask for advice on what colour to dye your hair, and continue the raging debate of Pirates vs. Ninjas -- whatever strikes your fancy.

Same here. It seems quite accurate and would be a good way to introduce new fans to the brick.

Agreed!

So I've get a great deal of guilty pleasure out of 2012 revamp of Carrie the musical. Some of it is so awful, but I can't help but love certain parts of it. I've also got a weakness for good dance music as well as acoustic versions of hip hop music. :oops:

All right, I got through ten, but it may take a bit for the others. I know, I've been meaning to do this forever. :oops: There's about twenty-five, I think.

Enjoy! There are so many random Brick-accurate details, like pulling out Fantine's teeth, and then a bunch of face-palm stuff, like all the personalities of les amis rolled into one guy called "Combeferre," but who's really "Courfeyrac" in disguise, I'm sure, and then a bunch of weird stuff, like Jean Valjean impersonating Catherine the Doll. :lol:

Rolling all the amis into one tends to happen a lot. I don't like it. Are there at least some decent barricade scenes?
I'll definitely listen to these sometime this week.
Thanks.

Is that radio drama the one with Roger Allam as Valjean?

I believe so; to the best of my knowledge, it is, Flynn!

I've kind of fallen out of touch with it now, but The Vampire Diaries was quite the guilty pleasure for me when I watched it. Everyone thought it was this cheesy romance show and laughed at me if I dared to mention it, but there were kick-ass girls, and there was neck-snapping and heart-out-ripping and wells filled with vervain that caused vampires to rot.

...Why did I stop watching again?

Cascada...I am addicted to Cascada's music. The group is so unique and it's just my type of pop music.

I'm a performer at heart, but I am very interested in science. I have an awesome celestron telescope, a microscope, two boxes of insect and animal part slides, and I love reading astronomy and biology books. And bio is my best subject at school, even if I'm not taking it this year.

I am fascinated by nature and space, but like I said performing is my real passion :mrgreen:

I have been addicted to Winx Club since I was eight. I used to watch it on 4kids TV, before Nickelodeon bought it. And unfortunately I don't have Nickelodeon on my tv. I was able to watch season 4 on youtube, but I haven't been able to keep up with season 5.

I see Winx Club as one of those cartoons you're never too old for.


And it's just so SPARKLY. GAHHHH. :shock: :shock: :mrgreen:

My favorite characters are Bloom and Musa.

I suppose I have one...the Spiderman trilogy. :oops: Yep. No shame. That thing was a bigger part of my growing up than it probably should have been. Plus, it's just awesome. And I don't like a lot of other superhero movies.
And not the new one. Didn't care for the new one at all.

Much as I love a truly great musical, I can't help but feel a certain joy in watching the bad ones. Scores that would make Beethoven thank the Lord he was deaf. Tacky, saccharine lyrics. Directing that Busby Berkeley would be rolling in his grave over. I just love them :oops:

The top shows that fulfil these categories are Lestat (Seriously, if you have not seen how farcical the burning scenes are, you're in for a treat) and Love Never Dies, a show with the Phantom dressed like a skeevy Salsa instructor who seduces middle class mothers and a plot that feels like a terribly uninspired fan fiction.
