Freedom Isn’t Free From Team America

Posted by & filed under .

This is a guest post from one of our readers who wanted to contribute a post.  It does not reflect our company, endorsed by us or our beliefs. 

Of all the show tunes out there, “Freedom Isn’t Free” from the animated musical Team America is my favorite. It shows me just how powerful humor can be when dealing with sensitive topics, and this is a lesson I’ve carried with me for all my life.

The Team America soundtrack is one of a kind, and “Freedom Isn’t Free” is definitely my favorite track. Like many other show tunes I’ve heard, it’s filled with inappropriate themes, and it’s hilarious.

In case you haven’t seen Team America, you should know that it’s a animated musical created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, then guys who created the hit TV show South Park and the Tony Award winning Broadway show The Book of Mormon. (more…)

I Put a Spell On You Hocus Pocus

I Put a Spell On You – Team Annie or Team Bette?

I Put a Spell On You Hocus Pocus(This is a duo post since I’m on Team Bette, but the author is on Team Annie…it’s a death match over which is better.)

Halloween is right around the corner and we are all watching and listening to traditional Halloween classics.

If you are anything like me, the soundtracks of Edward Scissorhands, Bettlejuice and Hocus Pocus are probably on repeat at your house. Hocus Pocus is a fantastic Halloween movie and the mega hit song , “I Put A Spell On You” from the movie Hocus Pocus has been remastered by 80’s legend Annie Lennox.

The original is by the incomparable Bette Midler and now the fierce Annie Lennox has offered her twist on the hit.  (more…)

Disney’s Frozen Reviewed – OMG – Click Here Now!

Posted by & filed under , , .

The only thing I have to say is HOLY CRAP!  I had a fever and the flu when I went to see Disney’s Frozen Musical in 3D at the movies.  I was cranky and grump so I expected my Disney Frozen Reviews to be horrible because of my mood.  I had a bunch of mommy blogger friends that were invited to do Frozen Reviews in LA and they went crazy over it, but at the same time whenever they get a free trip and to see a premier they always give good reviews.  That’s probably why I don’t get invited all the time, I’ll say why I hated it if I didn’t like it.  This time though, all of the amazing Frozen Reviews were 100% on target!  I loved Disney’s Frozen the Musical and if you haven’t seen it, get off this blog and go now!

When I was sitting in the theatre, I could have sworn I recognized the speaking voices and then all of the sudden when the song “Let it Go” came on I dropped my popcorn and said, Holy Sh*t, that’s Idina Menzel.  Then Olaf started talking and I realized it was Josh Gad from the Book of Mormon.  Then I recognized Jonathan Groff’s voice from Glee and Spring Awakening and the list keeps going.  The funny thing is that Disney’s Frozen is almost parallel for Idina Menzel in Wicked.

You have a woman who loves her sister but has a magical power that her family and she needs to hide and keep secret.  She can’t control it and eventually it causes her to be banished.  All of the sudden she is running wild and in a castle singing about Letting Go which is almost the same as No Good Deed from Wicked.  The story lines are very similar in some aspects and if you loved Wicked, you will go crazy for Disney’s Frozen the Musical.

Disney’s Frozen is campy, happy, fun and everything you love in a show.  Some of the songs are kind of cheesy, but most of them are awesome.  The voices and talent mixed with Disney’s animation and the great score will literally have you singing when you leave the theatre.  Our Disney Frozen Reviews are,,,why are you still reading this….go to the movies and watch it now!  You can also buy the music and eventually the DVD or BluRay by clicking on this link.
