Red1, enters fourth grade and gets word that they’re putting on the musical “Annie Jr.” in the spring. She’s been in the school chorus for a year and is excited to try out. But she’s not interested in Annie’s part. She’s all about the character actors! (Ye-haw! Me, too.)
So we’re putting Annie DVDs in our Netflix cue and looking at the YouTube clips to see which parts she wants to think about. She knows all about Carol Burnett and loved the few scenes we’ve seen already. Bernadette Peters may be a new inspiration for her too.
She rolls her eyes and says that all the girls are going to being singing, “Tomorrow, tomorrow…” and just then, Red2 starts singing, “Yesterday…” And that was it. We began pulling up the list of songs and matching them all together.
An Annie/Beatles mashup. Listening to all of the songs from the musical and the Beatles album, “Help!” is going to be great fun. How do they come together? 🙂 We’ll see. It’s a great project for Google Wave too.
This week we had the displeasure of hearing that Google is planning to dump Google Wave, but we’ll keep using it until they close their doors. Perhaps, by sharing our projects like this more people will start using this amazing stuff Google pops out. (What if email was invented today?)
